Why only the donors?

Girl From The North Country: Why only the donors?


Because Rick Scott is part reptile. They don't attack their own.

Also, this is still not the worst fundraiser debacle this week for Scotty Boy:

Quite frankly I think they should go ahead with a private donors hunt at the "It's Your Money, I Want It" fundraiser.

The use of the term "risk" implies that getting these guys eaten by alligators is a negative outcome.  I prefer the term "Opportunity."

This guy is so clearly farking evil and corrupt and inept, WTF? I understand that some people would vote for an inanimate carbon rod if it had an (R) next to its name but those people aren't the majority. Yet this tool will probably get re-elected.

People are resigning from Scott's top administration positions at a record pace these days. As a recent transplant to Florida, I'd love nothing more than to see Scott hoisted on his own retards.

I'm optimistic that he'll be tossed out.  He barely beat Alex Sink (the Democratic candidate) who had all of the personality of a wet paper bag.  If the Democrats can find someone to get the people excited, Scott will be out.

He doesn't know, so he can't tell you:

"Gov. Rick Scott on Tuesday launched his four-day image-rebuilding "listening tour" to promote his call for cuts of $500 million in taxes and fees, making stops in West Palm Beach and Fort Lauderdale.
Scott did not spell out any specific taxes or fees he wanted to cut, but entertained ideas from mostly business owners in both South Florida cities."

When is Florida going to start drug testing death row inmates? Before we inject thousands of dollars of taxpayer funded poisons into their veins I need to know if they've been getting "high" off "prison ice" while the good people of Florida have been providing them room and board.

That's been his deal all along.  Cut taxes for corporations, cut funding for education and social safety nets, give government contracts to those he's in bed with, and allow health and home insurance companies to raise rates dramatically to rape the general population.

If you're a wealthy business owner he'd probably been a good governor, but for the other 99% of the state he's been farking us up the ass since day one.
 
2013-09-11 04:57:07 PM
Are the Republican governors actually competing to see who can be the biggest shiatstain?

Agreed. Most of my group of friends saw this coming during the run-up to the election. We're just amazed that he's gone so long without being called on it by, oh, the REST OF THE GODDAMN GOVERNMENT.

Can't wait to vote him out. Hopefully we'll have enough support by then, unlike we did electing Sink.

If you're short sighted enough to vote only on your own personal interests and fark everyone else, sure. I know some wealthy business owners who don't think that way. I'm sure they're the minority but they do exist.

That's a BIG "if" when it comes to the Florida Democratic Party and a major reason why the GOP has been controlling the entire state for most of the last decade. How else do you explain having a state that is literally the definition of "50/50 swing state" in presidential elections and yet the only Dem to hold a major office is Bill farking Nelson?

/hoping that they'll just swallow their pride and just go with Charlie Crist who was, you know, actually a good governor

Alligator is some good eats.

From what I recall the one time I ate it. Over 15 years ago. Based on the 3 or 4 bits of it that I had.

Anyway, I know he's in Florida, but 'gator hunt' fundraiser? I mean, do these douches really feel the need to do the most red-neck-y thing possible in order to court the right-wing? I mean, I suppose the rich folks just say "do what you gotta do to get the rubes to vote for my tax breaks", but still. How about just having a skeet shooting competition fundraiser or something like that?

So, what you do right now, before you make any plans, is hit Yelp and search for alligator. Find someplace with 4 stars and do dinner.

There are several examples of Scott going against things that were voted for or even getting busted for nefarious deeds and simply saying essentially, "fark off, I'm not explaining myself". I've heard that he has every paper but the Tampa Bay Times on his side to get him elected and I believe it.

It tastes sort of like chicken but a bit fisher.  It's not bad with some lemon squeezed on top.  It's more of a tourist thing than a regular part of the diet for anyone down here.

I'm not going to go out of my way to get it. When I go out to eat to a nice restaurant, I'm usually getting some kind of fish entrée since I'm the only one in my house who likes fish and I never get it at home unless my wife and daughter are away and I get it for myself which isn't very often.

But, if it were offered to me, I'd enthusiastically partake.

Hell, I'll try just about anything once.

The gator I had that one time was at a bar in Harleysville, Pa.

So... you know... take from that what you will.

Considering that reptiles not only don't believe in karma, they aren't even aware of what is might be even if it did exist, I don't think you really have much of a 'deal' with the reptiles. Might as well eat them if for no other reason than to give them a try.

For some reason, that made me think of this exchange from Caddyshack:

Judge: Ty! What'd you shoot today?
Ty: Oh, I don't keep score judge.
Judge: How do you measure yourself with other golfers?
Ty: By height.
Judge: You know, you should play with Dr. Beeper and myself. I mean, he's been club champion for three years running and I'm no slouch myself.
Ty: Don't sell yourself short Judge, you're a tremendous slouch.

she makes the last minute call to the governor to tell him there is no legal reason not to proceed.

she also already apologized and said that particular rescheduling request shouldn't have been made.
 
2013-09-11 06:57:27 PM
So, to answer the question posed by submitty... the answer was B.

"Let's have us a fundraiser and shoot gators! Red-blooded vote money comin' up!"
(later)
"Excuse me, governor. Aren't permits for gator shooting done by lottery? How did you manage to come up with those permits?"
"Oh, ask the state's Republican Party. I've got no comment."
"But the Party didn't sponsor this event. This is your campaign's event..."
