Touch-Screen Touch-Paper!

May 28, 2005

In Miami, they’re starting to figure out that touch screen voting machines may not be the panacea that was hoped for after the 2000 election fiasco. Touch screens cost more to purchase, more to operate, and more to maintain than optical scan machines, and they leave no paper trail – there is no way to [...]

Tampa wins Whore Off

Tampa wins Whore Off

Fond of inserting annoying little creatures into his rectum. Like Mr. Slave, who brilliantly answered Paris Hilton’s pineapple trick by entirely inserting Paris herself into his asshole and lisping “Oooh, Jesus Christ!”, Tampa has won a big Whore Off contest by simply out-whoring the other big whores: because we were number two, we whored harder [...]

Cutting criticism

May 27, 2005

Jeb! displays a little compassionate conservatism by cutting a government program that cruelly gives false hope to those who think that tenants in this state might somehow force a landlord to maintain his rental property or even return a security deposit now and then. The poor will be much happier in the long run if [...]

Ribbons cut into Council compensation

May 27, 2005

Ybor Wal-Mart deal collapses

I don’t like Wal-Mart . They’re union-busting peddlers of cheap, plastic shit manufactured in third world sweat shops. So the news that they wont be building a store near Ybor City near Ybor City anytime soon is good – anything is better than a Wal-Mart. But they’re not just gonna go away, and I fear [...]

Compromise

May 24, 2005

When I first heard about the compromise last night, I was livid. It seems to me that the Republicans can back out at the merest whiff of a fight that they deem less than extraordinary and that we’ll be right back where we just were – in other words, Dems got nothing. Also, backing down [...]

Finally, an honest judge

May 23, 2005

Continuing today’s theme of men of high morals, people who are not afraid to buck the status quo in order to do or say what’s right, we turn to the Florida judicial system, where we find an uncommonly qualified Judge who is being hounded by liberal do-gooders determined to tarnish his reputation by spreading truthful [...]
