It's Friday, ya bastids!
Florida Governor Rick Scott is vowing to continue purging Florida’s voting rolls. Odd, whenever I see Rick Scott, I too feel an overwhelming desire to purge. The Department of Justice has told Florida that its purge of voters is illegal. Scott said that the Department of Justice doesn’t understand the laws it is trying to enforce. Rick Scott does have a lot of experience with the law—but most of that experience is in breaking the law. It seems clear that Rick Scott is determined to stand his ground. And that’s never a good thing in Florida. There’s a reason that Florida is dangling partially outside of the United States. Neither side really wants Florida all the way in.
Mitt Romney is saying that President Obama intentionally slowed down economic recovery in order to pass Obamacare. Get real, Mitt. If Obama was intentionally sabotaging the economy, he would have been working hand in hand with Congressional Republicans. Besides, President Obama was perfectly able to simultaneously work to improve healthcare while working to fix the economy… just like Republicans were perfectly able to simultaneously try to prevent both of those things.
Well, Rush Limbaugh has weighed in on the subject of pensions. He’s against having a pension—because he doesn’t have one. Gee Rush, does that mean you’re also against having a conscience? Can Rush possibly be this stupid? Or does he just have to pretend to be as absolutely clueless as his audience? Rush doesn’t like pensions. He’s against what he calls “this notion that you’re going to be paid for life for something you quit doing thirty years ago.” What are you saying, Rush? That civil servants should keep on having to work into their old age? Even if that’s OK with them, I don’t want the cops patrolling my neighborhood to be 80 years old... driving around in a police cruiser at 10 miles per hour with the turn signal always blinking.
The list of bath-salts-related zombie-cannibal incidents keeps growing. Thank God we didn’t have these kinds of drugs in the 1960’s. If people were becoming flesh-eating zombies, it would have made Woodstock an entirely different experience. Though, honestly, it might have made for a better movie.
