Bwahahahahahahahahahaha. The GOPees look as ridiculous and vicious as they are.

"For the convention, Tampa city leaders have already proposed a host of banned items (lumber, hatchets, gas masks, chains and "super soaker" water cannons)- but they are prevented from outlawing concealed guns. Buckhorn had said the state law has made the city "look silly," particularly because officials can ban water guns but not real ones."

No, you cannot have a plastic squirt gun. Yes, you can have a real gun.

Lumber?

"In 1997, Rick Scott was implicated in the biggest Medicare fraud case in US history, stepping down as CEO of Columbia/HCA after the hospital giant was fined $1.7 billion and found guilty of swindling the government.

As Florida's new governor, Scott is now trying to kill off an anti-fraud database that would track the fraudulent distribution of addictive prescription drugs in Florida, over the protestations of law enforcement officials, Republican state lawmakers, and federal drug policy officials. "

How stupid are Floridians? Really, really stupid.

"I don't think his background justifies running for governor in any state, especially a state that has a lot of Medicare recipients," said Jim Alderson, a former hospital executive in Montana who received millions as a whistleblower in the case.

U.S. Rep. Pete Stark, a Democrat from California who criticized the government's settlement as being too soft on Columbia/HCA, said in a statement to the Sun Sentinel that Scott had made a fortune running a company "that defrauded Medicare out of billions.''

"Now he wants to run the state government?'' Stark said. "Watch out, Florida taxpayers."

"The governor has given Obama plenty to work with five short months after Scott eked out a 49 percent to 48 percent win over Democrat Alex Sink.

He’s cut 10 percent of the state’s education budget, which could result in the sacking of thousands of teachers, the Republican supermajority in the state Legislature flatly rejected his attempt to ram through an Arizona-type immigration law and his rejection of federal high-speed rail funding has sparked criticism from many in his own party."

Poor little fool. You will never know the difference between exercising rights and being a subject.

God save the Queen.
