I just love these satire articles.
“I just love these satire articles.”
Too bad it isn’t satire. And it could work to bring out students and potheads. Many times a campaign is won around the fringe vote margins. It only takes one vote over the other guy to win.
All the conservatives and libertarians I know wouldn’t be too put off by it either as long as its not taxed into worthlessness.

Legalize pot with welfare...will Nancy Pelosi say stop working, do your art, get high & the govt will support you?!!

Forgot to add...Morgan hired Charlie Crist...
C’mon Joe, you KNEW this was going to happen when it won the court battle. I’m already on edge about losing Scott to Crist.
Crist has an agenda, and he WILL reverse Florida’s gains under Scott.
You can laugh at them because they do not know what they are praying for. Also you can cry for the Country because the Country knows what these sobs are doing to it.
Hopefully, dems will stay home....
