Dear Mr. Scott:
As far as I can see, you purchased the Florida Governor’s Mansion. You took advantage of a low voter turnout in 2010. That’s a shame, when considering you are practically a minority governor forcing your will upon a large number who voted against you.
You appear to worship money and consider money to be more important than human beings. In the healthcare industry, this translates to an unsavory idea about making money, rather than healing people. You are pushing this same ideal upon public education, you money-worshiping louse.
Your number one priority is to make money, so you worship it. You claim to be a “born again” Christian, but you are not my fellow Christian. You are not a “brother in the LORD” with me and others who are on the small and cramped road to everlasting life. “The road not taken,” which does not follow conformity to the crowds of money-loving materialistic shallow folks.
Perhaps you disdain a letter in the scriptures which says, “the love of money is the root of evil [or all kinds of injurious things].” So how can you maintain a faith in GOD, our CREATOR, and HIS SON, JESUS CHRIST? As Jesus Christ himself would say, “you hypocrite!”
Jesus Christ became violently angry about those in the temple who were deceiving others. VIOLENTLY ANGRY. Seems to point to a very strong message from GOD and that does not indicate WE become violently angry, but learn from the message.
GOD became violently angry at the deception and violence of rape at Sodom and Gomorrah, too. It was not anger directed at homosexuality, which never occurred, only suggested. Because the towns people were selfish and not accepting strangers in their midst, they would often rape strangers of any sex, in order to embarrass the strangers. The story is about an intervention from GOD, due to his dislike of raping strangers of ANY kind.
Here are some words you should consider:
|Thou shalt have no other gods before me.|
|Thou shalt not make unto thee a graven image.|
|Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD the GOD in vain.|
|Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy.|
|Honour thy father and thy mother.|
|Thou shall not kill.|
|Thou shall not commit adultery.|
|Thou shall not steal.|
|Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor.|
|Thou shalt not covet.|
What part of this don’t you understand? Shall we discuss false witness? How about the deception that comes with adultery? Oh ,perhaps you never cheated on your wife, but how many countless others have you cheated on? And I am not discussing sex, either. Let’s discuss the words, “Thou shall not steal.” You pleaded the fifth, did you not? Is this deception like that of adultery? What about “coveting?” Worshiping money, rather than the true GOD? What part of this don’t you understand?
One of the original tea party members was able to “get away with murder.” John Hancock, a scoundrel bootlegging rum into Boston from the islands, murdered a British customs agent and purportedly got away with murder. He did it all in the name of selfishness, greed, love of money. Murder is on this list, too. One hopes you did not do this and get away with it. But then, you are a part of the modern-day scoundrels called the tea party, are you not?
We now celebrate with a beer named after John Hancock’s partner in crime, Sam Adams. Sam’s cousin, John Adams, was forced into joining the tea party when he did not wish to do so, due to his repulsion towards their activities. FORCED, without choice, by scoundrels and shallow low-life people with money made illegally (rum trade) – like drug dealers today.
Shallow low-life scum like you, Rick Scott, who worship money and step on the lives of people are repulsive. Then you pretend you like people, just enough to get elected. And at the same time, you destroy those who DO recognize humanity over money – the teachers and professors of Florida. Students are not customers and have no idea what is best for them, when it comes to education. The legacy of what has been accomplished and made our nation successful, in the centuries prior to these students, is what is important. Money is not to be worshiped.
John Adams, our second president, was a member of the same church denomination to which I belong and have spent most of my life: the Congregationalists. Former Governor and Senator, Bob Graham, who opposes both the Scott and Jeb Bush higher education plans, is also a rational-thinking member of the same denomination. This denomination’s legacy IS public education. Our denomination advocated for public education and did so, not in the name of the worship of money, but in the name of humanity. Now you, Rick Scott, wish to destroy public education. You wish to project those of us who stand steadfastly in favor of humanist and secular public education as being devils. “Judge not lest you be judged.”
Jesus identified Satan. “Satan is the father of the lie.” You and the Bush family embrace (George Bush is even quoted as saying this) the words of Hitler’s propaganda minister as he said something like: “Tell a lie enough times and eventually it becomes the truth.” Jesus said Satan is the father of the lie! Perhaps you use psychologists to twist this even further and disguise your lies and projecting the words of good humanist people as lies. The U.S. Constitution protects freedom of the press, not freedom of the false press.
But then, as my grandmother would say to me, “judge not lest you [thou] be judged,” so how can I point out these things about another person? I would bet one of your friends in Southwest Florida remembers my grandmother, even to the point of picking on her – many times. And this friend of yours also forgot his past and those who helped along his way to wealth, thus slighting my own mother, who faithfully served the Republican Party for many years, as a party committee person in NY.
Jesus also said, “turn the other cheek,” to enemies. Here it is, Rick Scott, so begin slapping my other cheek. Go ahead. Bear false witness against me. You are a hypocrite. If Jesus could call the deceptive lawyers and business people of his day, “hypocrites,” then I am only following the model of my LORD and Saviour. Deception is in the 10 commandments, but gets hidden by sex. I guess it makes us feel better, don’t you know?
