I can't seem to wrap my head around this new law Gov. Rick Scott signed. To put it into lamens terms:  The not-so-economically-sound state of Florida now has a regulated program that will require poor people to be drug tested prior to qualifying for benefits and assistance from federal programs.

Why a Republican won't be elected president in 2012

This post originally started off as a response to a Facebook comment.  The post, from my cousin in Ohio, suggested that America would not vote for a Republican president in 2012, giving 3 to 1 odds to any of his friends that dare take him up on the bet. Many of his conservative friends decided it would be wise to take this bet, and I guess I couldn't help myself. 

I hope this doesn't hurt my cousin's chances of winning any money.
