No Confederate Plates in Florida

Actually, the situation is much worse:

Finally, before they hit the road, lawmakers passed only two
transportation proposals. The first will outlaw motorcyclists from
popping wheelies and increases penalties for all motorists caught
driving more than 50 miles per hour above the speed limit. The second
bans the introduction of new specialty license plates which nixes
proposals for a new Christian "I Believe" specialty license plate and a
"Confederate Heritage" specialty license plate

So, in addition to not being able to express their Confederate heritage Floridians are also being barred from expressing their Christian faith.  It’s not all bad news however.  A bill allowing the police to ticket vehicles with replica bull testicles hanging from the rear did not make it through. 

Nice to know some things are still sacred in this country.

    Isn’t this why someone invented bumper stickers?

    HE, — Your tackiness is another man’s pride.

    Tim, — Thanks for the reference. I knew these two stories somehow came together.

    Those testicles are the tackiest thing I’ve ever seen.
