FL columnist points out FL absurdities that make our state "unique". Well, weird, really.
Frank Cerabino of the Palm Beach Post managed to fit a lot of the outrageous things that happen here in one post, things that make Florida unique among states. He could not possibly have gotten all of them included, and a few paragraphs do not do his column justice.

Snowbirds, youve missed a lot since we saw you last

So while you were gone, weve added a 12th public university in Florida while also cutting $300 million to the university system. I know it doesnt make sense.

Like shutting down the states only tuberculosis hospital during a TB outbreak. You may have missed that one, too.

..."Oh, well. Speaking of disappointments, Gov. Voldemort has not been recalled to his home planet yet. But fortunately, he hasnt been able to probe us to his hearts content with urine testing and corporate raidering in the form of more prison and school privatization.

And remember George Zimmerman, that neighborhood watch guy in Sanford who shot that unarmed black teenager, Trayvon Martin, and relied on the states stand your ground law to justify the killing? Yeah, nothings happened with that either, unless you count the states formation of a panel to give its endorsement to that crazy law.


He also mentions the school prayer law that is "so unconstitutional that the Florida School Boards Association is recommending that all the public schools in the state just ignore the law."

Florida...things are different here.

2. Florida=Lots of old True Believers with Dementia
It's also a Deadbeat State, where scumbags can escape their Debts and other obligations, plus no State Income Tax, makes it a Haven for the likes of Teabagger wannabe Politicians.

I like Florida and will probably move there when this damn cold weather drives me out of Maine. There's two more Blue votes to drive them out.
