The Jacksonville Transportation Authority will again light the Acosta Bridge in rainbow colors Wednesday night after being told Tuesday by the Florida Department of Transportation that its color scheme was "out of compliance" with its existing permit.

Florida is a state of consistencies. for example, many things one notices all seen to be in the 80s:

The daily temperature...
The relative humidity...
People's average age...
People's IQs...

If I had taken the time out of my life to object to the colors of the lights on a bridge like that I would seriously question my own sanity. Apparently the homophobes think that drving over a bridge with rainbow lights will turn you gay, don't worry homophobes after you cross the bridge you will still be the same a*****e that you were when you began your crossing.
FYI, homophobe = A*****e.

There's theatre. There's politics. There's political theatre.. And then there's this GQP, where politics is valued only insofar as its theatricality captures the attention of rubes. Governing? Only insofar as it involves attending to the delicate sensibilities of sad snowflakes.

The people who object are missing out on good music. Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon is one of the best albums of all time.

Sorry Jakester, I tired of Pink Floyd decades ago. They were great in their time but their time has passed a long time ago. And really, how do you connect that to rainbow lights on a bridge in Jacksonville?

The prism on the cover, Danni.
Same 6 colors (basically) as the Rainbow flag.

So Danni,

If they outfitted the bridge to look like the confederate flag, would you still wonder why you should protest? I guess driving over a bridge looking like the confederate flag would make you a racist, right?

It's Pride month. I don't think there is a Confederacy month.

"If they outfitted the bridge to look like the confederate flag, would you...

...still know the difference between taking away equal rights, and sharing equal rights?

I like how Boaz compared the gay pride movement to the white power movement.

He might not realize that gays didn't lose a war.

Just another example of people not following the rules and then whining like babies until they get their way. At least this time it didn't involve looting, rioting and killing and the people actually followed the proper protocols to make the change, for the most part.

Confederates are losers.

Just like the insurrectionists.

No wonder Boaz supports both.

"At least this time it didn't involve looting, rioting and killing and the people actually followed the proper protocols to make the change, for the most part."

Unlike the Insurrectionists at the Capital of the United States.
Once again, Humtake's comments are embarrassing.
