    Same dingbat wants to ban the use of the term "ilegal alien" in all state documenets...because as far as she's concerned, aliens are of outer space.

    She's an idiot. Hopefully, the fact that both houses of the state legislature are R controlled will mean that this bill goes nowhere.

    I believe some senator or rep from Miami tried this about 2 years ago and if I recall correctly it didn't even get a vote.
