Rick Scott at Starbucks

Woman Throws Tantrum at Starbucks When Gov. Rick Scott Shows Up [VIDEO]

Don’t underestimate her power; the spoiled brat woman-child (and man-child) is powering many political careers.

The screams of the spoiled brat woman-child are shrill:

I don’t like or dislike Governor Rick Scott. I don’t know enough about him to have any firm opinion. But refusing Medicaid expansion was heroic. The spending is designed to increase the numbers who are dependent on government money and then remove the federal funding leaving the states with an unaffordable expense and a new group of voters demanding it.

Medicaid expansion is one of many reasons why John Kasich is not fit to be president.

In my opinion, having had the benefit of being able to think about this for a while, Rick Scott should have simply made eye-contact with the woman, told her, “You are being rude,” and then refused to acknowledge her. By claiming he had created jobs, he made a mistake.

  1. The government doesn’t create jobs except by corruption. At most, Rick Scott can claim that he stopped the government from obstructing job creation.
  2. He opened himself up to being blamed for all the ills of the Bush-Obama economy. The truth is that the federal government’s tyranny and corruption cause a lot of problems that a state governor can’t fix. But by taking credit for job growth he has made it seem like the entire Florida economy is under his control.

I’m not blaming Scott for not doing a better job. It is hard to respond well to childish temper tantrums.

The woman screaming about the rich is funny. There she is with her laptop in a Starbucks. I can’t remember the last time I bought coffee at a Starbucks. I love their coffee but I can’t afford the habit so I broke it.

It you want to do something about your life, stop telling yourself you deserve treats, and work on getting out of debt and start saving. Yeah it will be hard, but there’s a better chance of a good outcome that way than you will find waiting for a new government programs to save you.
