Thrill Daily News 4-13-12


If you write an ordinance for your employees saying that if they are accused of a felony, they will be suspended until the charges are dropped or they are found not guilty, would you oppose to being held by that same rule? Governor Scott of Florida suspended one of my bosses for committing a crime that had nothing to do with his job. My boss is complaining and threatening court action and all the other nonsense. People are calling Governor Scott an idiot for even worrying about it. Fact is, Governor Scott (and I can’t believe I’m saying this) is doing his job. He is enforcing the rules laid out by the governing body. Granted Governor Scott is governor and was charged (and I believe convicted of) 14 felony counts. Sure, it’s the pot calling the kettle black, but shouldn’t lawmakers be made to follow the rules, especially when they write them? Crazy world and times we live in when lawmakers think they can make the laws fit them.

Kids everywhere need to breathe a sigh of relief. There was a motion proposed to the McClean’s Citizen’s Association to Boycott Virginia theme parks. The boycott comes as tourism officials keep pushing to have kids start back to school after Labor Day. Other officials (and your parents) want to get students back in school before Labor Day, making the year long. Florida does something similar, though they did try a few years ago to push it back as school was starting as early as August 4th! Full Story
