Why Can’t You Be Normal?

 

Like mother, like daughter. Like father, like son. Like country, like state.

Florida’s fucked up, but the United States is far more fucked up than our little peninsula.

 

Highest incarceration rate in the world.

Life expectancy lower than 42 other countries.

Trump supporters.

Florida.

There’s a lot of reasons for the rest of the world to laugh at us and accuse the U.S. of being crazy.

The United States is the Florida of the world.
