Two Cats Hunting

I think there’s a potential sitcom with these two cats.

FL Gov. Rick Scott Reverses His Opinion of Obamacare

And the Tea Party has already started misspelling words on protest signs against him.

TALLAHASSEE — Gov. Rick Scott said Wednesday he supports expanding Medicaid and funneling billions of federal dollars to Florida, a significant policy reversal that could bring health care coverage to 1 million additional Floridians.

“While the federal government is committed to pay 100 percent of the cost, I cannot, in good conscience, deny Floridians the needed access to health care,” Scott said at a hastily called news conference at the Governor’s Mansion.

Scott, a former hospital executive, spoke with unusual directness about helping the “poorest and weakest” Floridians — a stunning about-face for a small-government Republican who was one of the loudest voices in an aggressive, and ultimately unsuccessful, legal strategy to kill a law he derided as “Obamacare.”

Christians Upset Over Scarecrow

From Total Essex:

A GIANT scarecrow mounted on a 20 foot cross has been agitating more than just birds in Billericay.

The gigantic stuffed figure, complete with a miniature counterpart, has been erected in a Jesus-like pose at the junction of Barleylands Road and Southend Road – and many of the area’s Christians are not happy.

Assembled in the first week of Lent, the massive scarecrow, seemingly mounted on a huge cross, has been a source of controversy for the faithful in and around Billericay.

One furious woman called the Gazette to express her displeasure over the huge bird-scarer.

The mother from Billericay, who refused to give her name, said: “I think it’s incredibly distasteful and it is making fun of Jesus.

“I drove past the scarecrow with my daughter and she said, ‘Look, Mummy, there’s a man on a cross’ – I don’t think she should see that. It’s an unmistakable crucifix and it’s making a mockery out of my religion.”
