The Constitution Is A Fickle Thing
It's hard to understand what reasons anyone has for supporting the Republican Party these days, unless you're a corporation that profits at other's expense, or you're one of two Koch brothers.
In the past week, on the national stage, we've seen them completely ignore waving symbols of slavery for several days in the aftermath of black church members being gunned down during Bible study, before deciding the "optics" of that were bad.
We saw them come completely unglued because gay couples will now be able to marry and enjoy the same legal benefits as every other married couple in America do.
We saw them have a meltdown because they weren't able to keep blocking Americans from getting health care. Some called for states to ignore those Supreme Court rulings, while others called for doing away with the SCOTUS altogether.
At the same time, they cheered when other SCOTUS rulings said that states can keep executing prisoners with drugs that don't work so well and are tantamount to slow death by torture, and that say coal companies can keep right on polluting the air we ALL breathe, because regulations against such things are too costly for the polluters. What's the harm in a little more mercury at the expense of people and the planet when corporate profits are involved, huh?
Fear not Florida, for you have not been spared from special GOP attention. Our Attorney General Pam Bondi, who never met a lawsuit she didn't like if it meant taking away the rights of certain Floridians, has seized on more opportunities to jump on that GOP fringe bandwagon this week.
On your dime, of course.
First, Let's Kill All The Wetlands!
