Forum Post: Florida's Rick Scott is Pro Rape?

As a slap in the face to women during Sexual Assault Awareness Month, Rick Scott cuts funding to rape crises centers in Florida.

http://floridaindependent.com/75483/rick-scott-rape-crisis-centers

On April 17, smack in the middle of Sexual Assault Awareness Month, Gov. Rick Scott vetoed $1.5 million for the Florida Council Against Sexual Violence. The Legislature allotted the funds to the organization in order to support 30 rape crisis centers as they face impending reductions in collections, which currently is the bulk of their budgets.

The cut to the Florida Council was just one of the many health projects that Scott used his line-item veto power to eliminate from this year’s $70 billion budget.

Rick Scott is such an a$$hat. I hope FLA learns a lesson from this happy horse ship. They should pull a Scott Walker on Rick Scott.

There you go we need more Wisconny type actions a happening.

Well, I don't think I would say that he is Pro-Rape but, that doesn't make him less of a douche bag.

[-] 1 points by shoozTroll (17632) 2 years ago

Sorry. someone once told me that get a thread noticed, it should be inflammatory.... So I did my best......:)

Is he charging for rape kits already?

I think that's next.

You can do better than that.

You gotta think like FLAKESnews.

Dems force Scott to aid rapists, by funding rape clinics

So Scott defunds them..

we're not talking about military aggression here

[-] 1 points by shoozTroll (17632) 2 years ago

I'm not so sure about that.

They don't call it the military industrial complex for nothing...........:)

Scott does act a little like a general. Even looks like one. I wonder how many stars he thinks he has?

[-] 3 points by MattLHolck (16833) from San Diego, CA 2 years ago

never enough

[-] 2 points by shoozTroll (17632) 2 years ago

At least not until he can defund the rest of the rape clinics.

I mean all those beautiful women in thong bikinis must certainly be asking for it?

Burkas on the beach for Scott!!!

[-] 2 points by DKAtoday (22348) from Coon Rapids, MN 2 years ago

LOL LOFnL. Why can they not just monitor their own behavior and not go to such places.

No Beach access for Scott - send a note to his keeper.

[-] 1 points by shoozTroll (17632) 2 years ago

I'm thinking the selfish, greedy pig wants them all to himself.

No more clinics? Easy peasy.

Makes it easier to get away with it.

Does the Government of the USA and the Governments of the States of the USA not understand that "THEY" are being "ATTACKED" from "WITHIN"???

Can "THEY" not see the GREED and CORRUPTION running wild through the HALLS of POWER???

The People clearly see it more and more are waking up to the fact that it is not some mistake or nightmare. That It Is Real.

Can Not The Government See That They Are Being Set-Up? SET-UP by those Monied Interests That Have Bought Their Support?

The Government needs to be "SAVED" from "ITSELF"!!!!!!!!

Onward the movements against greed and corruption.

I know, and I wasn't the one who dragged this thread out of the cellar.

It is however still pertinent, considering the ongoing attempts at voter purging in Florida and elsewhere...........Such a callous disregard for people and society...................profit, in anyway way possible.

Hey - shooz. {:-]) The comment though it got sent in reply to you was actually meant for others looking in.

Part of my advocacy for humanity is to shift the paradigm - hence my beginning to use different identifiers.

Pro-People/Society/World

and

Anti-People/Society/World

Just trying to get away from labels that can be confusing and considered inflammatory or prejudicial. Taking the new terms out for a spin and saw this post had come up.

Hospital Corporaton of America's (HCA) own panel of inquiry has found overwhelming evidence that several of their hospitals in Florida were regularly preforming dangerous and unnecessary cardiac procedures, oh and they were also highly profitable operations to perform. If you think the name HCA sounds familiar, it's because it was founded by the current Governor of Florida, and it paid a record fine of $2 billion for Medicare fraud. The rightwing talking point is that Rick Scott "wasn't involved", he did however take the 5th during testimony something like a hundred times to avoid incriminating himself. Yeah, you can guess the odds that he wasn't involved.

[-] 1 points by shoozTroll (17632) 2 years ago

You would think that electing Scott to anything at all would be like naming an airport after Reagan.

Ooooops.

Rick scott said that the statistical survey done illustrated that the other 6.5 million was enough to cover the rape victims. That is why he knocked out the 1.5 million.

[-] 1 points by shoozTroll (17632) 2 years ago

Scott pays people to make statistics say what he wants them to say.

Plus the simple fact, that he could have funded them, his damn self, and still had 100s of millions left over..

Both parties, majority at least, work for the 1%. They do the work in different ways.

Please to show me 916 anti women's rights laws passed by liberals?

You have told a rather large lie.

You shouldn't do that. It's bad for your karma.

[-] 1 points by TrevorMnemonic (5827) 2 years ago

Never once disagreed with you on women's rights and the republicans. I even posted yesterday about the transvaginal probe jobs plan from the GOP.

I did say that both parties work for the 1%, they do the work in different ways. Just ask the Goldman Sachs execs that Obama put in his administration and Michael Taylor from Monsanto. The corporate oligarchy is everywhere.

You are trying to put words in my mouth. You shouldn't do that. Bad karma.

Here's a fun video - http://www.hulu.com/watch/109038/saturday-night-live-biden-cold-open

[-] -1 points by shoozTroll (17632) 2 years ago

What did those laws do for the 1%, and where is the equivalent from the dems?

I've found worlds of difference between the two in the States.

HUGE differences. That's why I reject all claims that they are both the same. It just isn't true

[-] -1 points by TrevorMnemonic (5827) 2 years ago

Once again I didn't say they were the same. They both work for the 1%. Remember the bailouts? The deregulation that catered to all the fraud on Wall Street that passed in the "Financial Modernization Act" ? The republicans JOBS Act that doesn't create a single job that passed with bipartisan support? Those were done passed by both parties. Like I said, they both work for the 1%. One party is just more obvious about it. There's a corporate oligarchy going on here and they love banks and control.

[-] -1 points by shoozTroll (17632) 2 years ago

The corporate oligarchy is served best by ALEC, which is almost 100% (R)epelican't.

That makes your statement another in a long, long line of fails.

[-] 2 points by TrevorMnemonic (5827) 2 years ago

No it doesn't. Do you know anything about the Financial Modernization Act? That was pure deregulation to help the 1% frauds on Wall Street. Go watch Inside Job. Stop denying truths and criticize both parties where they are wrong.

I'm not arguing with you about the corruption and bullshit of the republicans. But there is still corruption and bullshit coming from democrats too. Obviously, as a Kucinich fan, I do not think the entire democratic party is fucked. But when it comes to a majority, they work for the 1% and the voting history shows that.

The republicans push to end medicare and that crap like I said, MAKES IT MORE OBVIOUS when it comes to repubs.

[-] 1 points by shoozTroll (17632) 2 years ago

I'm just trying to say, and have been all along, there are still VERY significant differences, and I've also said before, you have to look at what's happening in the States to see it more clearly.

The relationship between the (R)epelican'ts and ALEC should make it even clearer to you.

What's really damaging us is unidentified, runaway Neolibe(R)tarianism.

And that, along with the confusion it creates is the stuff the Kochs are made of.

Nice. Post something about someone being pro-rape.

And then use "rape" when defining a tax plan.

How considerate of you as usual. Im sure those that have been through that horrible experience appreciate you using the term so loosely. Just shows what a hack you are.

Fuck Rick Scott. And Fuck you Too.

[-] 2 points by shoozTroll (17632) 2 years ago

"Right" back at ya'!

You're a fraud. And a big lover of the (R)epelican'ts and their malfeasance in Florida and elsewhere, I'm sure.

You back austerity every chance you get.

That's why you attack me, and not the (R)epelican'ts.

That's why you attack liberals and not (R)epelican'ts.

Up yer nose with a rubber hose.

If you really cared? You would have posted this instead of me.

Screw all (R)epelican'ts and those who defend their America busting policies.

[-] 0 points by hchc (3297) from Tampa, FL 2 years ago

Sorry dumbass, I say screw em all.

I know your midget mind cant process that, there are plenty like you keeping the status quo going.

You endorse the warmongers, Im trying to help those who are real open minded liberals get something going.

Im pretty sure registered Republicans arent supporting Jill Stein and Rocky Anderson.

Stop ruining our country with your apathy.

[-] 1 points by shoozTroll (17632) 2 years ago

Aw, poor little fraud.

Stuck in the same small political loop. Unable to stop repeating yourself.

Unable or unwilling to post anti corporate malfeasance.

Great lover of (R)epelican't austerity.

You talk a good game, you just don't play it, and you sure don't comment on it..

[-] -1 points by hchc (3297) from Tampa, FL 2 years ago

If we could get these two corrupted parties to stop bombing the rest of the planet, there would be no reason for austerity.

Try to catch up...

[-] 1 points by shoozTroll (17632) 2 years ago

It only appears as though I need to catch up.

I lapped you a long, long time ago.

You need to put it in gear, and stop repeating yourself.

Your governor is anti-womens rights, and you ignore it.

Why not post an expose on the corporations that support him?

Why not stop referring to the 99% as asses?

[-] 0 points by hchc (3297) from Tampa, FL 2 years ago

Did you miss the post where I said Fuck Rick Scott? I mean, how much more do you need it spelled out for you? Im not ignoring him. Florida still puts 10's of millions of dollars into domestic services.

Now ask yourself this- Why are the states running deficits? Why, even though they collect enough taxes to pay for the stuff, does the federal gov find the need to take it, and give WAY less back to them?

Fund the bombs. Fund the banks. Fund the multi nationals. Welcome to OWS.

Most here wouldnt vote for him. Thats a good thing. Like Ive said, how anyone can back either of these lazy ass parties is beyond me.

[-] 1 points by shoozTroll (17632) 2 years ago

it's not what you say. It's what you don't say.

It's what you don't post. It's your constant repetition.

It's your ignorance and or lack of comment on what's happening in the States.

[-] 0 points by hchc (3297) from Tampa, FL 2 years ago

Im not ignorant to it. Ive attended several state rallies the last year, against quite a few things that the R blindly follows. And when Im there, I ask the D what the hell happened to their party too.

When you see my promos, and the stuff that OccupyTampa is planning for the RNC that I'll be a part of, hopefully you will finally shut the hell up with all this Republican stuff.

Every political forum is the same thing, if you dont agree with someone, then you must be with the other side. Its very typical. And Im very comfortable with it, because as long as people like that stay on the internt and not out in the streets with us, its a none factor in change.

Did you ever follow the link I provided for you on some of the rest of his malfeasance?

Why do I doubt it?

[-] -2 points by hchc (3297) from Tampa, FL 2 years ago

He's probably going to grant Tampa a temporary ban on the 2nd amendment for the RNC, thats going to make them go nuts.

Im just saying, cutting things like this is going to be the norm coming up. The leaders are all corrupted, and the people are too slow to catch on.

Just wait till peoples food stamps and SS start getting cut. Its going to make Greece look like a walk in the park.

Why do you always blast me with that lame saying for the R when I state something that you perceive as an attack? Im simply stating that if you think this is bad, wait till the next five years get here. The worst is yet to come. And this makes me a (insert childish name for a Republican/Democrat)?

[-] 3 points by factsrfun (6000) from Phoenix, AZ 2 years ago

What makes you a Republican is your constant attacks on the Democrats, just as my attacks on the Republicans make me a Democrat, and not just a Democrat a yellow dog Democrat, one of the big differences between you and me is I will say what I am you hide.

Sorry douche bag, you're wrong, and you're a troll, and seems how you've never met me Im really not that concerned.

Just because I can see that you've been played into a game for your entire life, doesnt mean I've joined one of these two corrupted parties.

Stop trolling me, and stop trolling the site, and start figuring out what you are going to do when the D and R parties are finally done, because thats whats coming down the road.
