Congress Accidentally Gives South Dakota Back to Sioux

Congress Accidentally Gives South Dakota Back to Sioux

Washington DC (GlossyNews) — On Friday, in a late business wrap up, the US Congress gave back the state of South Dakota to the Oglala Sioux Tribe. Reports have surfaced that an obscure bill, which was suppose to cede a 100 acre parcel of land in South Dakota back to the Oglala Sioux, had a small typographic error in the official copy which, accidentally, ceded the entire state of South Dakota back to the Oglala Sioux.

President Obama signed the measure into law without reading it late on Friday and on Saturday morning, the Oglala Sioux began the process of taking over a number of Uranium mines and oil fields. A group of South Dakota Republican state legislators stated that the acts were illegal and the law obviously a mistake. However, federal lawmakers are now into a two-week recess and are not available to set the motion right.

When asked if he could rescind his signature, President Obama replied, “It isn’t my place to redo the work of congress. If congress has decided to give South Dakota back to the Indians, well, I support that. My signature stands.”

Tribal leaders stress that the law ‘makes sense’ and ‘sets the record right’. They are encouraging non violent take overs of white businesses and properties before congress has a chance to change the laws.

“Possession is 9 tenths of the law, mother fuckers!” yelled a young Indian as we walked past.

The author of the bill in question – Representative Tom Chase (D-SD) said, “Well, I was trying to help some Sioux out by getting them a piece of their land back, I guess we just helped ALL of them instead.”

South Dakota governor M Michael Rounds reportedly said in a press conference Sunday morning that, “We all know this is a mistake. If necessary I will order out the National Guard to keep the unlawful seizure of property to a minimum.”

A spokesman for the Oglala Tribe remarks of Rounds, “Who is he? I think he might be a little out of his jurisdiction now. Technically, now the Chief of the Oglala Sioux Nation is governor of South Dakota.”

In related news, gas prices at a newly tribalized Texaco gas station near the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation have dropped to 25 cents a gallon for regular unleaded. Which is good news for the folks waiting in line at the Ford dealership in Sturgis. Tribal leaders say cars will go on sale there for $300.00 each on Thursday.

  6. Marora says:

    If the President says his signature stands,then the Oglala Sioux Tribe should have the land and the state if that law now says! Signature Stands!!!

  7. magnolia says:

    There’s no such things as accidents – it was meant to be :) :) :)

  8. mitchell jamesson says:

    The acts of the Congress are only for interstate access and to facilitate trade between American Indians and the states. Constitutionally, this violates the 10th amendment.

    Regardless of whether or not it is a violation of the Constitution of these United States of America, the State will need to take it to court to show that the law the Federal Congress passed is unconstitutional.

  9. firstnationsson says:

    Lets not forget Taneal that the treaties were law with presidential
    signatures-and they “took” them back. As much as this should be the
    way of it-if it’s true does anybody really believe it will stand?
    I surely don’t looking at the five hundred plus years of history.
    The state has to take it to court? I doubt it-all that will be
    required is yet another bill to replace it-or some sort of amendment.
    Obama has been vetted and found acceptable prior to the nomination
    and election-that means he’s a team player-look at the health care bill
    and the escalation in troops-look too that there are more lobbyists in Washington since this administration took over than any previous time in history, then tell me he’s The One.

    Sad world. I’m a torn American. My great-grandmother was half cherokee. I carry both the blood of those who invaded our land’s and destroyed our nations and the blood of those whose land was stolen. I’ve found a wicked pride in the power of the American nation and the power of the Cherokee nation.

  17. Deanna P says:

  22. Lutawin says:

    South Dakota was ours in the first place, it was illegally taken from us, the Sioux. All these treaties they made our ancestors sign without their full understanding and false promises, taking away South Dakota and other parts of other states too, that was all our land. Come on Congress, WAKE UP, this land is ours, it always was. If you try to change this bill that the President signed, THEN work to make those treaties that our ancestors signed, RIGHT. If you are the HONEST people you say you are and we know you do,then make those treaties RIGHT.

  23. Trent says:

    What is it that people tell the native americans
    “What’s done is done” ??? !

  24. Roger Freed says:

    If you want to get technical the Sioux were later arrivals to South Dakota. I believe the Cheyennes and Arapahoes were there first and got pushed out by the Sioux. The Black Hills were considered holy land to them too.
    And folks, this is a humor site- its nothing to get uptight about. Its all to be taken lightly and in fun.

  25. wanderer in a wasteland says:

    …a humor site???

    Damn!

  26. Simply Human says:

    Funny…guess the GOONs have a lot of patroling to do with more land base in stock.

  27. KA says:

    They took the land away with paper-now paper will give it back??? The earth is the art and joy of the Creator! ! Blessings to the people. May ¤ peace ¤ prevail and no one be hurt in any way whatever the truth is abt this!

    this fake

  29. KU says:

    Damn, I planned on going to Sturgis tomorrow to buy a car for $300. I even had enough for 2 cars, found a couple sober drivers and ev. They don’t have their license but we were gonna chance it. lmao

  30. Ata says:

    damm that ante even true

  31. Jessica says:

    LOL that is awsome i wanna go get a car…thanks obama

  32. Brian K. White says:

    For the record we got a handful or really nasty emails about this story. Things like about how we should be ashamed for printing lies, how we should take the story down, and how we should apologize for intentionally fooling people.

    Few comments in general response. We don’t actually print.

    1- Ink is yucky and expensive, so we avoid actual printing on everything short of legal documents, of which we may see a few on this one.

    2 – If we took down every story we printed that wasn’t true, we’d have what, like ten stories left? This is a satire site and we eek out our place in popular culture by lampooning and poking fun at folly. Take it down? Sheesh, next you’ll ask the federal government to give South Dakota back to the Sioux!

    3 – I did not write this article, nor did I edit or approve it, but I would have. I do apologize with sincerity to those who mistook it for fact. It was not, and is not, our intention to deceive people. We only aim to entertain and raise powerful questions and discussions. Even looking back, there’s nothing in this story that would have led me to be cautious about its level of believability. The claim is so outrageous, the story is laced with jokes, and there is no other media outlet covering the story. It’s my belief that this would be huge international news, which it was not.

    So in summary, I am sorry for those who took the story at face value, but I will not remove the story as it remains a powerful commentary on the situation and a perfect opportunity for those of deepest conviction to open dialogue independently about these matters that mean so much to so many, and rightly so.

  33. Miss Anthrope says:

    What?!? Satire?!?! No way! It is on the internet and therefor it MUST be true! I am not changing my thesis paper on this subject! I demand that you retract your retraction immediately!

  34. Ogrebeast64 says:

    It always amazes me how people take EVERYTHING they see on the internet, or read in an email as the total truth of it all. Point out real facts and one is immediately shouted down by the gullible masses that are too lazy to check things out to see if they were true or not.

  35. Duke says:

    I think its fantastic. Especially that Obama is messing with Congess.
    Its okay for them to make mistakes and go back on them.
    Ignorance is no excuse. Unfortunately, I’m sure its all temporary.
    White man is gonna Indian Give again! I hope they at least
    compensate for this massive mistake. Forget 100 acres. Give
    Back 100,000. I live in California but I have already contacted my
    Congressman and Senator. Let there be change for the better!

  36. SIOUX says:

    FUNNY! NOTHING WRONG W/ POKING A LITTLE FUN! JUST LOOKING FOR A EASY WAY OUT.

  37. Luke Warmwater says:

    The truth is “The Lakota, Dakota, Nakota territory stretched from the smokies to the rockies” We just let anyone make a camp cuz thats how we rolled!!!

    I just have to comment Brian I love your comment “Oh Gurn, don’t ruin it for them.” I almost laughed out loud while at work….

    Does this make Obama an Indian Giver?

    if it were not true why is this on cnn. makes me wonder.

  43. Dissapointed in Dakota says:

    wow….white this white that….it’s insane how racist you PEOPLE are. does the hate inside every give you a bad taste? or are you all used to having shit come out of your mouths? Conquered people….you should have no shame…where is the pride where is the effort for something better?…instead of hating enjoy what the good can offer and just stay away from the bad….all people can act evil and devine…to lable a goupe of people because of missgivings and small mindedness, is why everyone is where they are now….so change or choke on your own shit

  45. Reverend Mike says:

    I believe this was posted on CNN Ireports which isn’t actually CNN but a forum where readers/watchers can post news and stories. So it isn’t the same as CNN actually reporting the story. If it appeared also on the main CNN pages, let me know, post up a link.

    ~Rev Mike

  46. BobZaguy says:

    Mike, I meant to put “iReport” after “CNN posted this…” in my post, but the fingers and keys just didn’t get the right memo when I thought I told them what to type.

  47. RED Turkey says:

    i personally think this is the only good thing Obama has done since he’s been in office. actually i think this is the only thing he’s done. Well maybe he’ll fuck up and give the land back to the Cherokee and Shoshone’s too. I can only dream.

  48. katie says:

    i am sooo freaking happy right now!

  49. katie says:

    im so happy right now. =)

  50. BigAL says:

    If this is true I am moving to South Dakota. The best thing Obummer has done in office!!!!!

  51. KELLI2L says:

    This story about the typo not being caught in time to save S. Dakota before being signed into law by the President – is indeed an interesting story – yet I am still confused – since it states the story is FALSE, yet it seems true enough to me that this WAS indeed an error that got caught TOO LATE, and no doubt be reversed. . . .

    BUT

    The OTHER amazing story on this page – was the story about Reverend Mike (the writer of this posting); if you didn’t read his BIO – you must go back and do so, for it is truly amazing and would make a great movie !!!

  52. Reverend Mike says:

    Horosho Kelli! Spacibo!

  53. carol jones says:

    What kind of a leader would sigh something before he reads the papers.I think we need a big change & it s not a Barack Obama change !!!!!THANK YOU

  54. idiot says:

    good just give the indians back there land it was stolen anyway. What is good for the goose is good for the gander.

  55. SET says:

    For the love of God it’s NOT TRUE! Shame on you people who don’t use common sense and actually THINK when you read an article – you shouldn’t be allowed to vote, drive, or breathe.

  56. Michael Ray says:

    It wasn’t an accident it was just KARMA!!!

  57. I lived in South Dakota years ago, and have a lot of friends from the Sioux Nation. Glad to see you have your property back!!! I feel this is Karma also!!!

  58. Gregg says:

    Great satire! Great satirical bio on Rev Mike! Seems to me people might have gotten two clues on it being satire:

    1. Headline of “GlossyNews.com; Combining truth and fiction incomprehensibly…”

    2. Rev Mike’s biography

    Clue to folks who missed the satire – check what the site and author say about themselves. Oh, and keep in mind there is some satirical stuff published around the end of March every year…. and “The Onion” is not serious news….

  59. Gregg: May I call you Grigorii? Oh that my long, hard, expansive life were satire. Sometimes fiction is actually stranger than truth disguised as satire wrapped in sardony… But then again, I’ve tried real life and, as the girls like to say, it left me gagging by the toilet wanting more….

    Thanks

    ~Rev Mike

  60. Molotov Rob says:

    Look like he shored up some votes in SD and quite easily too with this “mistake”. What will follow is so predictable. No one living on any reservation has seen any hope or change. They will use you to vilify anyone who clearly sees this error and the president knows its a mistake. Still amazed how so many people fall for his BS like moronic sheeple.

  61. i am blonde says:

    holy crap this just about stirred enough attention as the war of the worlds in 1938. ha ha ha it sucked me in.

  62. buddy-a-nam-tay-say says:

    i have wated many moons for something to strike a fire under all my native brothers and sisters.now the time is right to take back all our land.buddy-a-nam-tay-say.chief of the cherokee tribal council.here in illinois

  63. butch says:

    maybe the native american get get paid for their land.

  64. mika says:

    The goverment should pay us property tax.. They are on our land..

  65. posey says:

    Now if only they would accidently legalize weed…

  66. GORDON H FOX says:

    To ALL Sioux
    Good Luck You Deserve ALL Of It Been A Long Time Coming

    Best Wishes GORDON PRESTON UK

  67. Victoria Cronan-Rogers says:

    All across this country, we “whites” and many others are the offspring of “illegal aliens.” Our forefathers lied and robbed my indigenous brothers and sisters of North America in a horrific manor.
    There is nothing humorous about this so called satire. Autos for $300.00? The Sioux already live in poverty.
    My great grandfather moved to this country from Ireland in June, 1847. I cannot change where I was born. I am not a Native American wanna-be, however, it would not hurt any of us to try to walk the good red road!

  68. rfreed says:

    Alright everyone, I just talked to General Petraus and he has agreed to carpet bomb Arizona into dust.
    It will now be fit only for cockroaches and earthworms.
    No whites,
    no redskins,
    no blacks,
    no Asians.
    Nobody.
    Are we all happy now?
    The thing has finally been resolved.
    Now we can all sing and dance and be happy!
    Right?

    Why don’t I hear anyone being happy?

  69. P. Beckert says:

    It doesn’t solve the fight over South Dakota. What about freakin’ South Dakota? Why isn’t anyone worried about South Dakota?

  70. rfreed says:

    Ooopsie!
    I got my states screwed up.
    I thought this was the one about Arizona.
    No wonder it took me two years to discover I had taken a wrong turn and ended up in Alaska instead of St. Petersburg, Florida.

  71. rfreed says:

    AND SOUTH DAKOTA GOT PAVED OVER THREE YEARS AGO!!!!

  72. P. Beckert says:

    All you had to do is stop and ask directions…..

  73. Anon Amus says:

    this is great!
    if a substantial number of the big “factual” news networks had to remove stories that were not “completely truthful”, then without a doubt the only thing left in the news world would be sites like this one

  74. rfreed says:

    I’m a guy.
    Since when do guys stop and ask for directions?

    And whats the difference between S. Dakota and Arizona anyways?
    Their both in the west, have miles of desert, are sparsely populated and have lots of snakes. (This should get the emails going again)

  75. Babarouss says:

    why not live all togheter?

  76. DaveJake says:

    It is great to hear, as Obama is living up to his promises to hear the Indians cries and concerns, will be praying into this for all tribes.

  77. DaveJake says:

    We may consider this as a blessing in disguise, and may all the forces be with us and above all Gods hand. The door has been opened and there is no turning back from here. We too will be working on getting international lawyers and Admiralty lawyers on board to express our voice loud and clear to whoever is at the Corporate level or higher, must go to the top in order to get heard. Thank you very kindly for keeping us all in the loop, and goes with out saying, our prayers are with you all too.

  78. ANDREW ICE says:

    IM A TRIBAL MEMBER FROM THE STATE OF MICHIGAN… ME AND MY WHOLE FAMILY ARE EXSTATIC,,, THATS YOUR LAND! YOUR LAND… THERES POWER IN NUMBERS.. WE NEED TO WORK TOGETHER.

  79. ms. rae says:

    Correction
    Possession is 9 / 10th of the law in AMERICA!!!

  80. margaret says:

    I think that Warm Springs native americans should get there seeded lands back too.

  81. I’ve actually sen the National Guard and curfews. And it’s not a joke and it’s nothing to joke around with. Especially with the living conditions on the reservations and an epidemic of suices and self mutilation.

  82. They are doing genocide on everybody right now they had it planned a long time ago. They are doing it with drugs. Everytime you turn around they disrespect the planet Mother Earth. That reminds me of a song In the Year 2525.

  83. don ontiveros says:

    white man treaty fast!
