Governor Scott to Expand Port of Tampa

Florida Governor Rick Scott recently released the following announcement on Wednesday, Feb. 10, 2012.

Governor Scott Announces Plan to Expand Port of Tampa Petroleum Facility

 This week, while at the Governor’s Luncheon at the Florida State Fair in Tampa, I announced a a bold new initiative aimed at upgrading and modernizing Tampa’s port system. This 50-50 partnership between the State of Florida and the Port of Tampa will allow the port to handle up to five million more tons of petroleum products a year after it’s completed in 2014. The port estimates the project will create over 641 construction jobs, as well as more than 8,200 direct and indirect jobs over the next 30 years.

By prioritizing vital transportation products, we can make Florida a better place for businesses to grow and expand and help get Floridians back to work. This project will enhance Florida’s infrastructure and get our state ready for a new generation of international trade with the Caribbean, South America and beyond.

I invite you to visit the links below to find out more about the expansion of the petroleum facility at the Port of Tampa, as well as other initiatives designed to create jobs in our state, ensure Florida’s children have access to a quality education, and keep the cost of living low in Florida.

Governor Scott’s pro-growth policies  have reduced unemployment in Florida by 2% in 2011, as he continues to work towards fulfilling his election campaign promises to create 700,000 new jobs in Florida in 7 years, produce balanced budgets and reduce the size and scope of big government in Florida.  He has installed new free trade agreements with Panama and Colombia, balanced he state budget in 2011 without raises taxes, and in fact he gave businesses and families a tax cut. Governor Scott  recently announced his 2012 Leglislative preview, in which stated that in 2011, “We began reviewing and eliminating hundreds of unnecessary rules and regulations that have hamstrung business owners in Florida. We scaled back the size of state government and created a business environment in Florida that has allowed us to create 87,200 private sector jobs since January.

And with the help of the Legislature, we also passed landmark education reforms that put students first, eliminated tenure, and laid out a path to pay effective teachers as professionals.  We’re off to a great start, but there’s a lot more work to be done. Starting tomorrow, and continuing over the next few weeks, I will be rolling out my legislative agenda for the 2012 session.

The proposals you will see reflect my three most important jobs as Governor— getting our residents back to work by growing quality jobs in the private sector; keeping the cost of living low for all Floridians; and building a world-class education system through continued improvements in our K-12 and higher education institutions”

Governor Scott’s first full year has been quite successful, considering the budget deficits he inherited, and the current recession America still struggles with. While the media and certain propagandists in Florida like to label Governor Scott as the most hated Governor in the country, his current pro-growth policies, coupled with streamlining state government agencies and reducing overbearing regulations has shown remarkable results in moving Florida forward. Thank you, Governor Scott.

Florida Drug Users on Welfare Protected Against Illegal Search and Seizure?

A Federal Judge has temporarily banned drug tests for welfare recipients seeking to “cash in” on the backs of taxpayers in Florida on the basis of Constitutional protections against illegal search and seizure.   

Federal Judge Mary Scriven imposed the temporary ban basically because, in her ruling, she said that the court needs time to determine if the law violates the Constitutional ban on unreasonable search and seizure. Is this some kind of perverted joke? I ask this because I just read an article where the TSA is in fact illegally stopping motorists and searching their cars in a new program DHS likes to call VIPR. 2012 GOP Presidential candidate and current Texas Congressman Ron Paul went on the record stating his objections to the latest set of DHS laws rules in an op-ed from tennesseenewspress.com titled, TSA Releases VIPR Venom on Tennessee Highways .

 

If you thought the “Transportation Security Administration” would limit itself to conducting unconstitutional searches at airports, think again. The agency intends to assert jurisdiction over our nation’s highways, waterways, and railroads as well. TSA launched a new campaign of random checkpoints on Tennessee highways last week, complete with a sinister military-style acronym–VIP(E)R—as a name for the program.

Here[once again] we see a Federal Judge intervening with Florida State law to protect welfare recipients from the [supposedly] illegal search and seizure of a drug test that was enacted simply to ensure the working taxpayers are not funding welfare recipient’s drug habits. Meanwhile, the TSA can fondle citizens private parts at the airport and stop citizens and search their vehicles on any highway in the U.S. with no valid reason.  Ron Paul summed up the new TSA VIPR program pretty well at the end of his op-ed:

 

Disarming the highways and filling them full of jack-booted thugs demanding to see our papers is no way to make them safer. Instead, it is a great way to expand government surveillance powers and tighten the noose around our liberties. (emphasis mine)

 

For those of you naive enough to think Florida welfare recipients are not using illegal drugs, I point to the following facts of the past few months when the law was being enforced: Since the law went into effect in mid-July, over 7,000 applicants have taken and passed the drug test, 32 took the test and failed and approximately 1,600 have refused to the test.  Applicants do not have to say why they refused, but their refusal will block them from receiving the government benefits.  If you are caught operating a motor vehicle in most states while under the influence of drugs or alcohol and refuse to take the sobriety test or submit to a blood test, your drivers license is automatically suspended. Of course, the government makes a huge profit in fines and DUI school in order for you to get your license back,( from the actual working class citizens) while the welfare class doesn’t have any earned money to take from them. ( nor are they paying their fair share in taxes)  If a person was in need of real help in the form of a welfare cash payment in Florida, they simply would have no problem proving that the cash would go towards food or shelter and not dope. Unless of course they are already on dope, and can’t hold down a steady job because of it, therefore they demand that other people support them and their habit. This is the very definitive crux of this problem.

The champion of the welfare class, the ACLU started this whole disgusting federal intervention into Florida’s right to drug test welfare recipients by filing the lawsuit in the first place. Isn’t it weird beyond comprehension on how the ACLU can sit by and allow the TSA to unconstitutionally stick their hands down American citizen’s pants at the airport and also approve of the TSA jack-booted thugs use of the VIPR  illegal automobile searches of American citizens simply traveling from one town to another? Actually, it all doesn’t seem too strange when we consider the idea that the ACLU and the DHS and the TSA are obviously doing the Obama administration’s bidding today.

 Here is serious a tip for our readers :  When traveling across state lines or any other time when in your vehicle, be sure to follow all local, state and federal laws about carrying your second amendment allowed guns with you in your car. What better way for the anti-gun Liberal jack-booted thugs from the TSA to start taking away your right to bear arms through the illegal searches being conducted under the new TSA VIPR program.

 

2012 just can’t get here fast enough!

 

Florida Gov. Rick Scott Hammers Out Jobs in Tough Economy

Governor Rick Scott recently announced that Florida’s unemployment rate has decreased by a total of 1.3% since he took office in January of this year. While unnecessary and redundant government jobs have been cut, we still see an overall increase in job creation, according to the following chart:

This is a wonderful example of just how Rick Scott is keeping with his campaign slogan of “Lets get to work” that he rode to winning the Florida Gubernatorial election of 2010.  Governor Scott  gives credit to the State legislature, among others in his weekly newsletter and September Florida Jobs report.

 

I cannot take full credit for this positive news. Florida is on the right track, thanks to the collaborative effort of the Florida Legislature, who last session passed business tax cuts and shared my vision for making Florida the best state in the country to do business, and to Attorney General Pam Bondi, Chief Financial Officer Jeff Atwater, Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam, city and county governments, who along with the state provide incentives for companies to create jobs here, and to everyone in my administration who has played a role in growing jobs. Most importantly we must recognize the businesses who are actually taking risks to create jobs in Florida every day.

Not being one to rest on his laurels, Governor Scott also released his new Economic Growth and Job Creation Agenda of 2012. ( ahead of time, which is nice to see)

 Florida has seen the addition of a total of 110,300 jobs while shrinking the size of government, resulting in a net gain of 92,400 jobs since Gov. Scott took office. Even better news can be found in the fact that Florida’s job growth rate of 1.3% has outpaced the national rate of 1.1% for the first time since February of 2007!

Thank you Governor Scott, for giving Florida some change they can really believe in!

 

 

Florida Takes a Stand, Sets Primary Date of Jan 31st

 It is now official: The Sunshine State of Florida will hold it’s Republican Presidential Primary on Jan 31st, 2012.

While GOP establishment operatives across America have expressed a wide variety of complaints about Florida’s decision to hold their Primary on Jan 31st, this Floridian believes this is simply a matter of Florida’s right to decide when to hold their primaries, not the decision of outsiders from other states or establishment GOP operatives who, frankly haven’t been doing so well for America in recent years.It was that kind of elitist mentality that inspired the Tea Party groups across America to take it upon themselves to restore true conservative principles back into American politics, which they did in the historic 2010 elections. Since this whole debate is about Florida’s decision to hold their primary earlier than the GOP establishment would like,  so let’s see what actual Florida politicians had to say were the reasons for the date change shall we? We will leave the national kingmakers of the GOP establishment’s opinions for the end of this article.

 NOTE: This major decision to change Florida’s Primary date in 2012 came about with the creation of a state law that required a committee to be formed that required Governor Rick, House Speaker and Senate President Mike Haridopolos to each nominate 3 choices to serve on the committee,  one of which must be a Democrat, thus the committee had 9 republicans and 3 Democrats on it. The final vote that decided the primary date change was 7 -2, with all Republicans agreeing on the primary date change along with one Democrat.

The committee members are as follows, with who picked the members noted: 

 Florida Governor Rick Scott announced his three choices for Florida’s Presidential Preference Primary Date Selection Committee.
Former Republican Governor Bob Martinez served as Florida’s 40th governor from 1987 to 1991. Before that he served as the mayor of Tampa, the city where he was born.
Former Democrat Senator Al Lawson represented Floridians from 11 panhandle counties from 2001 to 2011 in the state senate, and before that he served nearly two decades in the Florida House of Representatives.
Jenn Ungru, a Republican, is Governor Scott’s deputy chief of staff with oversight responsibilities over the Department of State. She has served in the Scott administration since the inauguration and has more than a decade of campaign and election experience in Florida and nationwide.

Senate President Mike Haridopolos (R-Merritt Island) announced the appointment of Senators Rene Garcia, Gary Siplin and John Thrasher to the Presidential Preference Primary Committee.
Senator Rene Garcia (R-Hialeah) currently represents Florida Senate District 40, which consists of part of Miami-Dade County.  Garcia first was elected to the Senate in 2010.  Prior to serving in the Florida Senate, Garcia was a member of the Florida House of Representatives from 2000-2008.
Senator Gary Siplin (D-Orlando) currently represents Florida Senate District 19, which consists of parts of Orange and Osceola Counties.  Siplin was first elected to the Senate in 2002 and was subsequently reelected.  Prior to serving in the Florida Senate, Siplin was a member of the Florida House of Representatives from 2000-2002.
Senator John Thrasher (R-St. Augustine) currently represents Florida Senate District 8, which consists of parts of Duval, Flagler, Nassau, St. Johns and Volusia Counties.  Thrasher was first elected to the Senate in 2009 and was subsequently reelected.  Prior to serving in the Florida Senate, Thrasher was a member of the Florida House of Representatives from 1992-2000; he also served as Speaker of the Florida House from 1998-2000.

Florida House Speaker Dean Cannon appointed the following House Members to the Presidential Preference Primary Date Selection Committee:
Representative Carlos Lopez-Cantera
Representative Seth McKeel
Representative Cynthia Stafford

The following are some of the statements Florida politicians from the Republican Party have made, in regards to Florida’s early Primary date decision.

 

Florida State Senator John Thrasher, was on the committee that made the final decision to set the primary date explained, "This is about getting Floridians involved at the earliest possible time."  

 U.S. Rep. David Rivera of Miami explained, “It is indisputable that what matters most in the early primary season is MOMENTUM, not delegates," in response to those who worry about the GOP rule that says Florida may lose half it’s delegates if they went ahead with setting an early primary date. Mr. Rivera also added, "That is why states like Iowa and New Hampshire, which have minuscule delegates, matter. As in 2008, Florida will provide overwhelming momentum not because of our delegate count, but because Florida’s critical role in the November election.”

Florida House Speaker Dean Cannon explained his support for the decision to set the early primary date as, "I feel the 31st is the right time," adding, "We are the largest swing state in the presidential race and have more votes than the first four primary states combined. We deserve to be a make-or-break state for the nomination." With the majority of national political insiders calling Florida the most important swing state in the upcoming presidential election, Mr. Cannon’s statements there do carry a good amount of weight as far as to why Floridians decided to take a stand against the establishment  GOP rule forbidding early primaries.

Florida RNC co-chair, Sharon Day stated her concerns as, " I don’t know if it changes the dynamics of the presidential race, but it makes it tough on the candidates," adding,  "I get the argument for Florida, but we created these rules for a reason."

I also got in touch with 2012 Florida District 03 Congressional candidate, Mike Yost to inquire about his views on the Florida Primary date change. Mr. Yost stated that while he had some reservations about the early primary date, that he was in total agreement in the fact that it is Florida’s decision to make,and not the GOP establishment’s right to impose upon Florida. Mr. Yost  also conveyed his concern about whether or not Florida will, in fact lose half it’s delegates as the GOP has threatened to do on numerous occasions recently, and if so , just what kind of a message would that send to the rest of the country?  The answer to that question will be revealed within the next week, as we approach the deadline for states announcing their Primary dates. 

Florida is receiving major criticism across the political spectrum for their choice to hold their Primary on Jan 31st, as we see by the following statements,many of it from early primary states who will now have to adjust their calendars because of Florida’s decision:

From South Carolina Party Chairman Chad Connelly we see this:  “Rogue states have once again dictated the presidential nominating calendar,”  adding,  “States who have worked so hard to maintain the nominating calendar should not be penalized and the offenders, including Florida, should lose their entire allocations of delegates at the National Convention.” Rogue states, Mr. Connelly? What is this, South American politics we are referring do here?  Drop the childish rhetoric and let’s all unite and get to work to defeat Barack Obama in 2012 please.

From Iowa GOP Chairman Matt Strawm we see this childish temper tantrum: “The arrogance shown by Florida’s elected leadership is disappointing, but not surprising. Equally troubling is to see this petulant behavior rewarded with our national convention (in Tampa),”  How about the arrogance  the establishment GOP has shown in trying to dictate just what day Florida will hold their presidential primary on here? maybe Mr. Strawm needs to face a real conservative challenger in 2012, unlike when he ran unopposed in the 2010 elections? Mr Strawm praises the Iowa GOP establishment on his very own blog,  while totally ignoring the true conservative grassroots Tea Party movement that rebuked the progressive Democrats and Rino-Republicans in the historic elections of 2010, allowing America a real shot of turning this ship around in 2012. Ignore the Tea party at your own risk, Mr. Strawm, as you sound a lot  like GOP establishment elitism in your above statement. Do you hear this, Tea Party of Iowa? 

The small state of New Hampshire actually has a state law that "requires" the state of New Hampshire to hold it’s primary 7 days before any other state !  Good grief, who in the hell came up with that law? Just because the blue-blooded elitists of what, over a century ago, chose to create a such a ridiculous state law in the first place is supposed to somehow dictate to the state of Florida when they can hold their primary? New Hampshire Republican Chairman Wayne MacDonald explained  that his state will move forward if Florida accelerates the season. State law in the Granite State requires that its primary be held at least seven days before any other primary. "But it really defeats the purpose," MacDonald said. "We were trying to avoid front-loading, but here we go again."  One can certainly understand Mr. MacDonald’s dismay about having to change his state’s primary date now, so here is a simple thought: "Why not instill some common sense and abolish the ludicrous law that says you have to be first in line in the first place? By the way, Iowa usually has their primary ahead of New Hampshire, but as one back-peddling politician stated, "It’s not a primary, it is a caucus."  The fate of the country is at stake and these nuts are playing word games. Lovely.

Of course the leftist-sphere had to put in their two cents:

The leftist rag The L.A.Times puts some ridiculous spin on Florida changing their primary debate in an article that features a giant picture of Hillary Clinton talking to a bunch of people holding Obama and Clinton signs back in 2008 here.  That’s right in an article about GOP primaries, the Liberal establishment running the L.A. Times uses a picture of Hillary Clinton. We must have missed Hillary’s announcement that she will be running for President on the Republican ticket in 2012 there.Of course no conservative-bashing L.A times article would be complete without a few lies and propaganda inserted into it to appease their readers out there in Liberal la-la land:

But Florida, which will play host to the 2012 Republican National Convention, in Tampa, wants to have a more central role in picking the nominee. To achieve that, it would run afoul of the RNC, which will dock it about half of its 116 convention delegates. (emphasis mine) 

So in that statement they falsely state that the RNC will dock Florida half of its delegates, period, yet later on in that very same article, they show how that statement isn’t necessarily true:

 Florida also pulled a similar move in 2008, moving its primary to Jan. 29, and helping to lock up the nomination for Sen. John McCain. Though all the Florida delegates made it to the convention floor in Minneapolis-St. Paul — with about half being characterized as "honored guests" — the RNC seems in no mood to make a deal this time.

How about actually reporting the facts and just the facts, instead of trying to inject your leftist mandate on what the GOP will or will not do regarding Florida’s primary date change decision out there in the 20-billion-dollars-in-the-red-budgetarily-bankrupt state of California ?  We do not need advice or mandates about the Republican Party of America coming  from  the ignorant hope n changers of the left coast. Don’t you have some more illegal alien sanctuary cities to be creating out there in la-la land or something else to keep yourselves busy, like spending time creating laws to ban happy meal toys, while business leave the state in droves due to your decades long march towards creating a Liberal utopia?

 

 The swing state of Florida with it’s added 2 electoral votes, giving it the same total as New York at 29,  is a very critical vote for the Republican candidate to win. Here is a little-known fact: The last Republican candidate to win the White House while losing the Florida vote was Calvin Cooledge in 1924. Florida’s demographics are such a mixed bag that it always makes it a Nervous Nelly situation across the state and country when vote totals start coming in. In 2010 conservative Rick Scott looked like he would actually lose the election to Liberal Alex Sink in the early going, then it was neck and neck through about 80% of the vote with Scott pulling ahead for good pretty much not until the end. Northern Florida and the panhandle are in the mold of the "Old South" with it’s military bases making for a natural conservative base. Central Florida, also referred to as the I-4 corridor, is a mix of retired Midwestern retirees, young suburban families and Democratic-leaning Hispanics, ( largely non-Cubans)  I live in Central Florida, and in the 2010 elections saw Central Florida shift slightly more towards conservatism, which I expect to see happen again in 2012. As people learn the truth about the hope and change catch-phrase and see how inflation, gas prices and the over-all cost of living increases are hurting Florida’s huge Senior citizen population, while living in a stagnant economy, Liberals posing as Democrats will feel the wrath of the informed voter in 2012 in Florida. So will progressive-voting Republicans,especially here in Central Florida. South Florida, which has a huge population of Cuban-Americans who  mostly shy away from the Socialistic planks of Liberal ideology and vote conservative, as many of them know just what the Cuban Socialism did to their relatives and country under Fidel Castro and Company. South Florida also contains many white retirees from the Northeast who remain active in politics. Democratic strongholds in places like Jacksonville are among the most impoverished areas in all of Florida, and we can expect to see them turning red in 2012 also. With it’s totally diverse population, huge amount of retirees, and the emergence of the Tea party across Florida, the Hurri-Cain  beat out Romney and Perry in the Florida straw poll by a whopping margin. Before that reality happened, most insiders thought Florida would be a Romney nomination win over Rick Perry. Now it remains a complete toss-up once again, yet one can not deny the conservative message Floridians sent to the country with Cain’s win, and now the moving up of the Primary date much to the dismay of the GOP establishment. This will make the GOP candidates scramble for the Florida Primary vote even more intense. 

    Here is a tip for all of the whining and crying establishment GOP operatives and assorted pundits that deem themselves so self-important as to denounce the state of Florida for taking a stand against the GOP’s elitist pattern of dictating to Floridians, and other states across the country as to how and when they will hold their primaries: Get over it, the Florida Republican Presidential primary of 2012 will be held on Jan 31st, period. 

 

 

 

Gov. Scott Creating Jobs in Florida/ What About the Corruption?

    Florida Governor Rick Scott sent out his weekly email letter that I received today which included some good news on the jobs front here in Florida.

This week we learned that Florida added nearly 10,000 jobs in July. This is welcome news. In fact, since I became Governor in January, Florida has gained 71,600 jobs. I continue to work my hardest every day to ensure that this trend continues. Although Florida is heading in the right direction, we still have a long way to go. Our states’ unemployment rate is 10.7 percent. This is simply unacceptable. 

While this has to be very encouraging news for the state of Florida, as Gov. Scott states, it is still at an unacceptably high level. At least we are moving in the right direction during the current Obama recession, which is a lot more than we can say for some of the higher unemployment states listed here. Nancy Pelosi’s Calif. is at 12.1%  and Harry Reid’s state of Nevada leads the nation in unemployment at a whopping 13.4%. In comparison, North Dakota currently has the nation’s lowest U/E rate at a wonderfully low 3.5%. 

While Florida’s U/E rate remained stubbornly high at 10.7%, we did add over 9900 jobs in July. Today is September 17th and in all fairness, we have to wonder what the most recent jobs data will show. If we added a significant number of jobs in August, I am sure the Governor’s office would already have made that information available this late in September. Looking at the bright side, at least we are no longer bleeding jobs by the thousands as we saw in recent Florida jobs history, when it hit 12% last December. Note: It now appears possible that the Governor’s email letter misstated the month for which he is referring to there, as this article  says those numbers are for August right in their headline.

The Florida Economic Estimating Conference says that the future of Florida’s jobs picture doesn’t look too optimistic,  in a revised outlook, the group of statewide economists now predicts unemployment will rise to 11 percent by the end of this year and only drop down to 10.6 percent by the end of 2012, essentially where we are now.

“Their overall optimism has been pulled back to some degree,” said Rebbeca Rust, chief economist with AWI. They list the main reasons for what appears to be a stagnant Florida jobs picture for the next two years as the troubled housing market in Florida which saw foreclosures rise by 5% between July and August, a stalled manufacturing sector due to concerns that we are still in a recession, and more government cutbacks that are expected as more state and local governments budget for a low or no growth environment. Keep in mind that that information comes via the far left St. Pete Times that rarely publishes anything good about Governor Rick Scott. They instead, seem content to continue crying about how their much- hearalded candidate, Liberal Alex Sink got voted down by the informed voters of Florida in 2010.  While said Liberal media-puppets constantly whine about conservatives criticizing Barack Obama and demanding that they respect the office of the President, how about the misfits at the St. Pete Times trying what they are dishing out and show some respect for the Governor of Florida, Rick Scott’s office for just once? 

   I have worked and lived in the Tampa Bay of Florida area for over 25 years, and I am hear to tell you that the stubbornness of the recovery from this current recession in the Tampa area is a direct result of big government meddlers creating an unfriendly business atmosphere from within in the local and county governments. This is the reason Governor Scott has created a group that’s only job is to eliminate the thousands of job-killing regulations that have been enacted by past big government authoritative administrations. From Washington DC to Tallahasee Florida, and every town in between we are seeing thousands of over-bearing government regulations that are creating a climate of uncertainty and are in fact cost-prohibitive to business creation and expansion. Governor Scott understands this as much as any businessman, and that is why he is trying to walk back decades of big government gone wild in the State of Florida today. Thank you Governor Scott.

      Governor Scott has made major advances towards improving the Florida economy and business atmosphere in his first half year in office. He is also fighting against the mainly Liberal media and nanny-state worshippers here in Florida on a daily basis who think it is the government’s job to support them through the usage of taxpayer dollars. Tampa’s problem was they they had an over-abundance of ill-advised  investors that bought into the mortgage scam, making Tampa especially hard-hit by the housing mortgage crisis. Because of this, many areas of  Tampa now look like the Detroit of the South, with abandoned homes that have been stripped of everything by thieves, and are in abundance in many neighborhoods. To add to the problem, many, many of the local politicians enriched themselves and their relatives during the mortgage crisis, yet none of this was reported in the news here.

  Does Florida have a huge political corruption problem? Considering that the prior two governors have called for grand jury investigations into Florida’s political corruption, we have to say yes we do. Myfoxtampabay has a great explanation on it here.  You may also want to meet a Democrat from Hillsborough county Fl, one Kevin White, who is on trial for more corruption felonies than I have time to put into this article. It may/should anger the hard-working folks of Florida when they see that they are paying for this corrupto-crats lawyer also. There is also the case of former RPOF Chair Jim Greer’s current corruption trial as reported here. While those felonious corruption trials are ongoing in Florida, we see several instances of Florida politicians getting off scott-free in the past: Florida corruption denies Congress the ability to ever to win the people’s trust. U.S. Congresswoman Corrine Brown has gotten away with her corruption there. And in the ultimate example of Democratic Party corruption here in Florida, meet the impeached Federal Judge, one Alcee Hastings, whom is now serving in his 8th term in the U.S. House of Representatives! 

    Do we have a corruption problem in the state of Florida today?  YES. Are politicians above the law in America? Apparently so, if you look at the examples above.  What does it say about the state of Florida when this political corruption goes unpunished for decades? How in the world is an impeached Judge who was caught on tape accepting 150 grand  to throw a case before him in court by the FBI, allowed to serve in the U.S. Congress? Ask the people in Alcee Hastings district who keep on reelecting him about that form of ignorance and denial of us having honest representatives from Florida in our Congress.

 How about the Grand Jury being called up to investigate all of this corruption in Florida Governor Scott? Where does the Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi stand on this obvious epidemic of corruption in Florida?  Career politicains who never get prison time and/or heavy fines for their corruption just invites more corruption. Let’s call up a Grand Jury investigation and DO IT NOW !
