    We've probably all seen the video by now. Some lady speaking to a committee in the state legislature in Texas gets pulled away by three or four officers. While I disagree with what she was saying, I didn't hear anything that I thought deserved getting dragged away by security. I haven't been able to find the state's side of this anywhere. Why did she get pulled off the microphone?

    She was a little crazy in her approach. At a minimum, have a little respect for the forum. She wasn't quite Andrew Meyer crazy, but then again, she didn't get tased either.

    Go GATORS!

    This is quite common in Jersey, the Soprano State. I'm assuming her testimony was pro-abortion since she got the sympathy of the media.

    It does not matter what craziness she was spouting she went over her time. My favorite part is that she was moving to New York and not Florida.

    Joke(but seems true at the same time)
    difference between NY and Fla-----
    many people in NY strive a lifetime to perfect being jerks
    then
    once they have achieved perfection they retire and come to Fl

    hate to say it---the NY ugliness seems just as bad , if not worse in many areas of Fla than up in NY.

    Florida is the only state where the farther south you go the more northern you get. The northern part of the state is where "southern" living most exists. You get down to Dade/Forward your back in The NE.
