Arm the football players. And the fans!

Yesterday, at a high school football game in Jacksonville, FL, a triple shooting left one person dead and two more injured.  Just one week before, two more people were injured in a shooting at a football game at Palm Beach Central High School.

Clearly, there is only one logical step for the Florida legislature to take: state law must require that all high school football players, coaches, and cheerleaders as well as all game attendees must be armed.  There is no other way to stop this wave of violence.  I expect Governor Rick Scott to call a special session to address this legislation immediately.

Your EPA at work

5 years after an explosion of a fertilizer plant in West, Texas killed 15 and injured 150, and just 2 days after another chemical plant explosion in Pasadena, Texas injured 22, criminal Scott Pruitt’s EPA administration has decided to roll back safety rule changes put in place as a result of the West Explosion.

West, Texas Mayor Tommy Muska told the Austin American-Statesman, “With all due respect to Scott Pruitt, he’s never lost 15 firefighter friends.  I’m as pro-business as anyone, but some things are way, way, way more important than too much regulation, and that includes the safety of these chemical plants.”

Scott Pruitt and Donald Trump do not care.  They don’t care how many people are killed or injured in industrial accidents.  As long as they can cut regulations, especially anything done during the Obama administration, they are happy.  And their donors are happy.
