    Our bizarre Tea Party Gov. in action. his approval rating have ranged from a high of 41% to a record low of 29% He's living testament to everything Romney said in his 47% talk and then add in a healthy dose of bigotry. Despite lines as long as nine hours on Election Day in Florida, Scott said he stands by the new law. "Well I'm very comfortable that the right thing happened," he told WKMG Orlando after the election.

    Yep. The state that has election issues every four years. You'd think they'd take a hint, but nope. We'll hear the same sh!t again in four more years. Bet on it.

    @martydotcom Florida is irrelevant. The best thing in this country happened without them. The election was decided without them.

    @martydotcom I love how Scott insists that welfare users take drug tests, then refuses to himself. The same money pays his salary as goes to the users right? Shouldn't tax payers have the right to know if he's getting high?
    Give him a cup!!

    I had the same response. What's the big deal? Nobody is forced to answer. If you don't like it, throw it in the trash. End of problem.

    LOL, public nudity, explicitly sexual T.V programing and music, sexual identity advocacy, sex education, promiscuity, sexual extroverted parades, in an already over sexed society and we find a few questions "appalling"?
    Now that's rich. LOL

    Yes, it's appalling for government entities to send out sex surveys. If any woman in my family had gotten one of those, I'd be madder than hell. It's none of their damned business.

    @Nat

    From what I read it was an elective proposition with monetary benefits. Junk mail doesn't normally upset me, so I apologize for making light of your feelings regarding the survey.

    I agree, it is obama's fault. Anyhow, whoever signed off on this disgusting survey is beneath contempt. I'd be livid if my wife or niece got something like this in the mail. There is no excusing this ignorance. Drug testing people that abuse the safety net system? Yes. Harassing young women? NO!

    @Neo_NtheMatrix You'll stay at least until 2016 won't you? Don't you want to vote for Hillary like Rush told you to do?

    Hmmm,... would send it back to them blank with my own 12 page "survey". And trust me, the Florida's Health Department has never been questioned like I could question them >> :-)

    The Health Dept. asks questions if you get an HIV test too...partners, etc. I think I could have developed a better questionnaire, however. This one was done by the former head of the DOH... "The survey's never been used before, and is "unique," Armstrong said, created using questions that already appear in other surveys in use nationally. They were pulled together into one, in this case. The survey went through 48 revisions as it was vetted by two institutional review boards, one at the state health department and one at FAMU, Armstrong [Surgeon General] said." http://fcir.org/2012/06/20/former-official-sa...

    @PolitixMary

    Thanx mary!

    But wait, this survey is a fill in the circle kind?!? no way even one of these would be finished correctly in Florida. hanging chads left and right from the #3 pencil poking through...

    @PolitixMary

    thanks, mary. it's interesting to say the least, but rather nebulous. as far as 'offensive' goes... i asked my wife if she would take it and she said,'no'. i asked her if it was because it was offensive, and she again said,'no... it is because there's no clear reason for this survey that is evident. she is an educator, and when she asks questions it's always obvious that she has an evident goal in mind. she expects the same from survey of any sort. in this one the questions are all over the map, so to speak, so nothing's really clear. for example, what does the question,'how old were you when you first had sex?' got to do with anything else in the survey? the same goes for 'were you ever physically abused?'

    without any clear reason for the survey being taken, and a clear indication as to who is going to use the information nobody should have filled it out. but offensive? even our 11 year old daughter didn't find it so.

    @dances-weebles

    i would think all the questions had to do with womens' health services. there are many aspects to that. contraceptive education, in the case of age of first sexual congress and partner abuse in the case of the abuse question.

    i didn''t find it offensive either, but i did think it had a reason although across many parts of womens' health issues...

    @woodtick57 the problem is that they never made those reasons clear. some information would have helped a good bit.

    if you read further into it, they said that the questionnaire was put together by a committee and is made up of questions from other surveys taken nationwide... it's sort of a potpourri, i guess you could say, and therefore comes across as being confusing at best, and inane at least...

    how did you feel after the last time you had unprotected sex? um... satisfied?

    who on earth would have ever stopped to think about it at all? it seems to me to be baiting.

    More like stupid, reminds me of the 69% of people in Ohio without a high school diploma voting for Obama.

    What the hell is your problem with Ohio? There are some who may not have a high school degree, but they do have G.E.D.'s and you are counting the older population it was not a big priority back then as it has been the last 30 years! I know some very hardworking blue color people without diplomas and they are just as smart as you and I some maybe even more so. I have said this before you are young, dumb, and come from a privileged up bringing. Just because you hold a degree does not make you intelligent its just means you can read and retain information. Its sure as hell doesn't make you better then any other person on the planet!

    @classychazy Problem in Ohio? The issue is 69% of the people in Ohio without a high school diploma voted for Obama. Sad fact but true! You have a problem with a fact? Are you implying they are not bright? Are you embarrassed by this?

    @Zoe2012 Yes and I am an R.N., but I know some who do not have a degree of any kind and they are just as intelligent as us.

    @dances-weebles well I read the blurb, never was sure from the questions what the objective was. I got the feeling it was more about why women have sex.
    Idk it seemed strange, the type of questions I mean.

    @Thegrif mary posted the link to the complete survey. it only takes a couple of minutes to read through it. to me it seems a hodge-podge.

    I read the survey. See question #20, there is one answer listed that makes absolutely no sense. See question #41, asking you to state your religion; there's no selection for "None" or "Atheist." I find that interesting.

    @Denizen_Kate yea something seemed off about that survey to me. That and my state spent 45,000 to come up with it. Oh hell, guess we got money to burn!

    @FollowTheMoney how about going the other way, too? some people can get off the obama horse and accept the fact that he won the election no matter how badly some people wish otherwise. the best man won.

    Where's the surprise that it's Florida? It's a state where republican governors openly give kickbacks of taxpayer money to business friends (re: the "drug testing" of welfare recipients). It's a state where politicians interfere in the private medical care of individuals (e.g. Terri Schiavo) yet refuse to have medical care for all...except for the big voting block of seniors. People talk about Louisiana as a corrupt state of hypocrisy, but Florida could definitely give it a run for its bribe money.

    What's the purpose of the survey? The questions don't seem "appalling", but I'd like to know what info the health dept is hoping to gain from this.

    well they do not give you, a lot of other choices for this poll. but one must remember, that my being personally offended. only illustrates my, weaknesses or guilts. even though the establishment of this government religion, of the subtle beast is rather mentally ill. so no i am not supprized, by the mental illness of this whole world. that has been already predicted, in scripture. and only tells me, that the established religion of your government, is not the religion of G-D. and in deed is the establishment of religion, of the subtle beast against G-D.

    I'm not a woman so I don't have a particular feeling about it. I can imagine what the women in my family would think, but I can't speak for what they really think...we value independent thinking in this family.

    Surveys like this are often used to target resources more efficiently. For instance, if most respondents prefer IUDs over birth control pills then the health department can save some money by reducing the amount of oral contraceptives its keeps on hand.

    After a quick review of the survey, I don't find anything wrong with this. Perhaps a little invasive, but all in the name of science and junk (I hope). Another thing, as it says right at the top, the survey is VOLUNTARY, so getting upset over the questions is similar to asking for advice but rejecting it because you don't like what was said. Now, flip genders. Would anyone be up an arms if it was a Men's survey?
