In case you weren't paying attention here is an update on what the Republican vision for America is. If you thought the Republicans were the party of small government and low taxes you're wrong. They are the party of crazy crack pot populism, censorship and government control of human reproduction.
Florida Governor Jeb Bush signed a bill yesterday allowing Floridians to shoot people on the street with their concealed handguns if they feel threatened without having to try to get away first. The bill is called the "Stand Your Ground Bill."
There is a company out there that makes a digital device that automatically censors DVDs you rent or buy so that all that offensive sex and violence goes away. Think about it! Now God fearing Christians can see "Braveheart" without all the violence to get in the way of the plot (one wonders what this device would do to "The Passion"). Or they could watch "Sex In the City" reruns without any discussion of sexuality. For now its just something you can buy. How long before these things are mandatory? Ask your local Republicans.
In other news, the Republicans in the House are considering a bill that would make it a federal crime to transport a minor across state lines for an abortion to avoid a state law requiring parental notification.
Anyone out there alarmed?
