No Sex! No Jobs! No High Speed Rail!

I think I just plagiarized myself (is that possible?) because the title are the words I used to finish up a comment on something that TrueBlueTexan said.  She was remarking on the fact that as of 1 Oct 2011 Florida will no longer be bigoted against homosexuals, because ALL sex will be illegal.  The law does say something about sex with animals, but it doesn't say anything about self-pleasure. I wonder if DSD would go for that?

There was an interview with Tricky Ricky (aka Florida's Governor) about how his party has reduced government and budgets and how this is going to create the jobs he promised during his campaign.  I'm not sure how creating more barriers for women and cutting the salaries of our state employees will help with the economy. I'm not holding my breath for it either.

And at the same time the billions of dollars promised by the Obama administration to Florida to build a high speed rail on the I4 corrider is being given to 20 other states because ol' Tricky Ricky said it was going to cost the state too much.. even after Senator Bill Nelson had signed paperwork from the cities involved that they would pay any differences.  We don't need no stinkin' public transportation!  But everyone else is pleased to accept the money!

This morning one of my co-workers stopped by my desk to ask me if I was still enamoured of this President. I mentioned a couple of ways that I was not pleased with him (Libya), but then he went on to tell me about this book he is reading that talks about the relationship between Ayers and Obama and how they are socialists from the dawn of time and how they have done dispicable things to rope people into believing in socialism. Like what you may ask? (I didn't have to) Like provide DAYCARE for working women. These women were so thankful that they jumped on the socialist bandwagon.

I went off!

     "George, are you telling me that they provided a service for women and children that those women could not get anywhere else? Quality daycare? At an affordable price? FOR SHAME!
     "The extremists on both sides jump into fill gaps for people where no one else does... let's us HAMAS as an example. They are (in my understanding) a terrorist organization, but the people LOVE them.  Why? Because when other countries on dropping bombs, Hamas shows up with food & blankets & helps rebuild shelter instead of dropping platitudes on hungry, scared people. Like a terrorist Red Cross who does not have to go through the red tape. So, of course, people are going to side with them. Especially if no other side is presented."

Unfortunately the phone rang at that time and George made his escape.  Which was sad because I was not finished.

"Everyone is a Socialist when the government is helping/paying them and a Libertarian when it is helping/paying anyone but them."  I stole this from a Facebook friend, but it is very true. Most people don't want to pay taxes, but they don't want a cut in benefits.. except to foreign countries. Most people scream and yell about how high their property taxes are (oh! mine should be lower this year, thanks, Rick Scott, you a$$), but they still want their children educated, their roads without potholes, and the police to arrive when 911 is dialed.

I am overwhelmed by all that is happening and I keep hoping that the nutjobs are correct and the Rapture WILL happen this coming Saturday at 6 pm local time.. like the wave!

Then I remember that only about a dozen people will disappear in it, because that is probably all world-wide who actually believe in AND act like Christ.

Damn. I was hoping for better parking on Monday!

You can't plagiarize yourself...especially when said comment disappeared into the cloud when Blogger went down and has yet to find its way home.


And it was a fine comment, too.

When I saw your blog title I immediately thought, "Dang, she's talking about me!" Turns out I was right, since I too am a citizen of what has to be the most screwed-up state in the union. That is, behind Texas, and California, and... nope,that's it, the 3rd most screwed-up state in the union. The great Sunshine State is so screwed-up it can't even be first at being screwed-up.

From what I've been reading in the news, Florida is definitely having its share of trials and tribulations.

Wow! I was obviously slightly annoyed with everyone yesterday & should have read over my post before clicking the POST button. A few typos and mis-spellings, but I am not going to fix them now. I will though.

Thank you, TBT, I thought it was fine comment, but no more than your fine post deserved!

Mr. Charleston, I am not certaint that there are not others AS screwed up... but maybe not!

Ahab, we live in Paradise, you would think our government would accept that and help us make it that way!!!
