Hillsborough County Fuck Fest: "Go Hillsborough" Focus Groups

  • Voters between the ages of 18-29 were automatically eliminated.
  • Taxpayers who did not vote in last year's gubernatorial election didn't get to participate in the focus groups were which conducted last November.
  • Consultants only talked to Republicans without any registered Democrats, but only conservative members of the GOP who always vote in Republican primary elections were included in the Republican group.
  • Those who labelled themselves as moderate or liberal Republicans were not invited to the GOP focus group.
  • Participants in the focus groups were chosen from Carrollwood, Westchase, Town and Country and Brandon which means which means South Tampa, West Tampa, Central Tampa, Temple Terrace, East Tampa, Plant City, South Shore, South County and Sun City were excluded from having their voices heard in the focus groups.
  • The participants were each given $75 to take part in the focus groups and among the major takeaways are , there is no sense of crisis in transportation; rail is not seen as a viable alternative; the bus system has a major image and usage problem. here
"Good luck with that," That’s what one Tribune columnist said about Commissioner Hagan talking about a balanced transportation referendum for more options.

Rick Scott, Is About To Be Given An Environmentalist Award

Florida’s governor has one of the worst environmental records in the history of the state. Not only has Rick Scott banned state employees from saying “climate change,” but he has also decimated funding for a number of important environmental departments and projects. Even with all of that, the Fish & Wildlife Foundation of Florida has decided that they are going to give Scott and award for his “conservation work.” No, this isn’t a joke. here

The foundation’s chairman Miami developer Rodney Barreto not only chairs the Fish & Wildlife Foundation, he also South Florida Super Bowl Committee and is a top lobbyist in the state. He was good friends with Jeb Bush, who appointed him to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.

Pathetic Subhuman Walter James Palmer

Cecil the Lion, the most famous animal in Zimbabwe, was killed on July 1 by an American named Walter James Palmer. The killers are said to have lured the 13-year-old lion out of a park after visiting hours. Palmer then shot Cecil with arrows, but the lion managed to get away, before being found weakened and injured 40 hours later, at which he point he was shot to death. here

Here is his phone number 612-825-9126 

“It’s not for food. It’s not the shooting, or tin cans would do. It must just be the thrill of killing. Mental.”  
Ricky Gervais

“Ohh the dentist ‘had no idea’ the lion was famous. Because had he known, he would never have murdered it without asking for a selfie first,” Olivia Wilde

 “SHAME ON HIM! I want them to take his citizenship away. I’m ashamed and horrified by what he did. #CecilTheLion.”Debra Messing

“This asshole. Why would anyone want to kill a lion for fun? What is wrong with people?” Alyssa Milano

“This #WalterPalmer is a poor excuse of a human being!” #WalterPalmer is Satan. I don’t know how anyone could go to this man for dental services after this. He is a killer. Beware!” Sharon Osbourne

“I’d love to go hunting for killer dentist Dr Walter Palmer, so I can stuff mount him for MY office wall.”  Piers Morgan

"How dare you #walterpalmer !!!! As a South African and as a human being I can't express how deeply saddened I am by this, what pleasure do you get out of doing such a thing! Seeing these animals alive in their natural habitat is such a blessing, you have to be so sick to want to kill such a majestic creature of God. You come to Africa with your dollars and euros thinking you can buy power by taking advantage of Africa's poverty and paying people to help you kill an innocent creature. Disgusting! I hope you get what you deserve #walterpalmer."
Candice Swanepoel

"What a pathetic human low life form. A coward and a heartless individual. May the taste of backlash cake be stuck in his throat and he chokes!" YCS

MaryJo Pezzi: An election rigged for Bush by Jeb Bush

The government of Florida tossed out thousands of African American Voters from the Registry in 2000 and also turned away thousands of African Americans from polling places. At the heart of this American political scandal was Gov. Jeb Bush and his Secretary of State in charge of counting the votes, who was also President of the George W. Bush for President campaign.

In fact, in ‪#‎Florida‬ a black person is 1000% more likely than a white person to have their vote thrown out.

Going into the 2016 elections, it is important to remember what happened in 2000 because Jeb Bush is now a candidate for President of the United States. here
