Commentary, sarcasm and snide remarks from a Florida resident of over thirty years. Being a glutton for punishment is a requirement for residency here. Who am I? I've been called a moonbat by Michelle Malkin, a Right Wing Nut by Daily Kos, and middle of the road by Florida blog State of Sunshine. Tell me what you think.

You're a joke Representative Arza

For putting a provision into a Florida education bill requiring St. Thomas and Chaminade-Madonna high schools to play an annual football game.

Things have changed. Demand for the St. Thomas and Chaminade-Madonna football teams to face off can be heard all the way from the state Capitol in Tallahassee. Rep. Ralph Arza, R-Hialeah, put a provision into an education bill that could force the teams to play annually.

Arza, who has a daughter attending Chaminade-Madonna, slipped his provision into Gov. Jeb Bush's educational bill tabbed as the "A-plus-plus" plan. Although Arza said he did it merely to bring attention to demand for the game in South Florida, the bill passed out of the House Pre-K/12 committee on Thursday.

If the bill gains final approval, it would be sent to Bush for signature.

"This is a lighthearted thing," Arza said. "It would be great for high schools, nothing more and nothing less. I never meant it in a serious manner, but just to get people's attention."

Still, Arza said he could get the matter passed into law if he really wanted to. Smith, who is from Fort Lauderdale, said if the representatives didn't know about it, it could slip through the cracks and be passed.

This is a total waste of time for our any of our state legislators. There are ones also on the national level who are also too concerned with playground matters. I was going to give Arza today's knucklehead but he is an insignifigant microbe compared to today's winner.

Chaminade-Madonna coach Mark Guandolo said it perfectly in this quote.

"It is a joke and is really kind of embarrassing,"

Yes Representative Ralph Arza is an embarassing joke. We can only hope his constituents think the same and send the right message at election time.
