When are Floridians going to stop being surprised? We live in a fascist rogue state where the Constitution and toilet paper are indistinguishable. Where else would a dead African-American teenager with Skittles be found guilty of attacking his murderer? It’s sad to think about all those good-hearted Floridians who thought that by voting for an African-American president and his hypocritical party there would be peace in our state and country.
All of us want peace, and that comes from understanding each other and taking care of one another, not from “standing your ground.”
Can we even recognize ourselves anymore? Perhaps it would be most appropriate to change Florida’s welcome signs at Disney, the interstates and airports to Mickey Mouse packing a Smith & Wesson. At least tourists would know what they were getting into. Put on your seat belts folks, it’s going to be a bumpy, scary ride!
