Dear Floridians (and everybody else),
Florida’s a fucked up place. From animal abusers to angry ex-cops to Zimmerman to horse fuckers, we have plenty of issues. WTF Florida is your source for these fucked up news articles, and we encourage hysterical laughter at the zany headlines coming out of the Gunshine State.
After the laughter comes tears. The victims of Florida’s insanity aren’t laughing (unless they’re truly demented, which happens sometimes). We have a responsibility to improve Florida as much as we can.
WTF Florida would like to state a new mission:
We are dedicated to becoming a Karma Neutral State.
We want Florida’s karmatic number to be perfectly balanced at zero. Laughing at other people’s misery brings negative karma. Doing fucked up shit brings negative karma. Helping people who have been fucked over by Florida’s insanity brings you positive karma. We are still going to make fun of everybody who shows up on this site, but we are also going to start getting more serious about fixing stupid shit.
From this point on, we will occasionally start petitions to bring about justice, and to fix things that are unfair or that defy morals. We encourage our readers to help, not only by signing and sharing these petitions, but to also create them yourselves and to contact your representatives when appropriate. Please contact us if you have an issue that is important to you.
Send us info about your non-profit group or activism group, and we will try to get you more views (if you don’t mind being associated with us). Use the Contact page and let us know what you’re about.
All big problems start small. You can make a difference today by doing little things. Give a homeless person a bottle of water. Ask a local school what supplies they need and gift them with what you can afford. Use your fucking turn signals. The list goes on.
Help us help our state.
Let’s work together for the greater good.
Let’s make Florida slightly less fucked up.
Vote on it…
Only the “Right Of Adults To Cannabis” amendment can secure your RIGHT to possess, cultivate, and use cannabis in a manner similar to your 2nd amendment right to “keep and bear arms” … think about that for a minute.
Whether you agree or disagree with Americans right to gun ownership, the strength of this protected right is clear and viewed my many as absolute. Floridians For Freedom believes adults right to whole plant cannabis should be comparable and hopes you agree. Full Story »

Despite Florida’s ridiculousness, we must admit that it’s natural beauty is a wonder to behold. President Trump has just signed an executive order that threatens this natural beauty. This order warrants oil drilling in areas that include the South Atlantic Ocean area, which extends south to near Cape Canaveral. You can see the executive order here:
We must not forget the devastation caused in April 20, 2010 when the Deepwater Horizon oil spill discharged 4.9 million barrels of oil into our precious ocean. Infant dolphins were dying six times faster than they did before the spill (Source).
“This is paradise,” said Senator Bill Nelson. “We don’t want to mess it up. We want to keep Florida as this place that is so beautiful so that our families and our guests can continue to enjoy.”
Bill Nelson has filed a bill to block expansion of offshore drilling, which you can learn more about on his website: billnelson.senate.gov
Our coral reef system would be in great danger if this order goes through, which has a domino effect of consequences. Once oil comes into contact with corals, it can kill them or impede their reproduction, growth, behavior, and development. The entire reef ecosystem can suffer from an oil spill, affecting the many species of fish, crabs, and other marine invertebrates that live in and around coral reefs.
Tourism would be affected as well… this should get the attention of those less concerned with life and more concerned with money.
“We have long been wise enough to know that we do not allow oil and gas rigs near our beaches in the state of Florida,” said Democratic Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman-Schultz. “They are just too sensitive and too vital to our fishing and tourism economy and our unique way of life.”
This is a non-political issue. This is about making the world we live in a safer place, and preserving the only planet we’ve found so far that can support human life. Let’s try not to destroy it.
“As a delegation, we have always drawn a line in the sand when it comes to drill off of Florida’s coast line and that’s why we’re here again today,” said Wasserman-Schultz. “We’re drawing a deeper bipartisan line in the sand that says “keep your drill baby drill policies away from our vital sensitive Florida coast.”

Meet Ronny Scott Hicks. Age 54. Extensive DUI record. This man was arrested on a bridge in Palm Bay and charged with a DUI… in his motorized wheelchair. This happened in the middle of the night, when the freaks come out.
According to the police, he was blocking several lanes of traffic on this bridge, and reeked of alcohol. After refusing to take a field sobriety test he was arrested. These cops also offered to get him treatment for the mysterious head wound that he had wrapped up, but he refused help.
With two DUI’s in 2013 and one in 1998, this man is no stranger to boozed up joy rides. His past convictions don’t mention if he was driving a wheelchair or not though…
There exists a $5,000 bond, so if you need a great chauffeur who works hard even when he has an open, leaking wound on his head, release this man and hire him immediately. This is truly a dedicated driver.Ronny Scott Hicks was drunk driving in his wheelchair and blocking traffic.
So for today’s WTF Florida we celebrate Ronny Hicks for blocking traffic in his motorized wheelchair on a busy bridge. And of course he was piss drunk, how else could this happen?
