Newser: A homeless Florida man says he only threatened to kill President Obama and his family in order to get better health care, the Sun-Sentinel reports. Stephen Espalin, 57, told a judge in West Palm Beach yesterday that he made the threat because he had chest pains and had been kicked out of a Boca Raton hospital for lying about having health insurance.
I just wanted to point out the fact that it’s pretty freakin sad that America in general, both political parties, has allowed itself to become so totally fucked that we can allow this guy or any guy to take advantage of a loophole like this. We wonder why we have more prisoners than any other nation, part of the reason is that they get square meals and shelter in prison. Hell, that’s probably a lot better than living in a third world country. Come here, get clean water, chill with the homies, go out to the prison yard for exercise and leisure, come back for a game of dominoes, avoid getting knifed, head back to the cell, read a few chapters of your book, take a snooze, go out to dinner, avoid getting dick-knifed, head back to the cell for some raping, hit the hay. Then do it again tomorrow.
PS. If you had to guess the state that this occurred in, how many of you would have guessed Florida? It’s ALWAYS in Florida.
