A Message From Saint Petersblog

Dear Readers:
The Florida Department of Law Enforcement has alerted me to a comment which was published two days ago on I am not going to give credence to the comment by re-posting it, but it included a violent threat against Governor Rick Scott. I have more than willingly supplied
the FDLE with the I.P. address of the commentor.

As much as I may disagree with the politics and policies of Governor Scott, the man is a public servant and deserves a certain modicum of respect. If you don’t respect the man, then respect the office.

Accordingly, please refrain from making threats, of any kind, to not only Governor Scott, but to any politician. I cannot monitor every comment that is made on this site, so if this becomes a problem, I will have to modify or disable the commenting system, which takes away from the interactive nature of

Thank you.
Peter Schorsch

Speaking of threats, the FDLE should check this out.

Imagine What $4 Trillion Could Buy

A new report out of Brown University estimates that the U.S. wars in Afghanistan and Iraq--together with the counterinsurgency efforts in Pakistan--will, all told, cost $4 trillion
and leave 225,000 dead, both civilians and soldiers.

An Atheist-Free Polk County

The Atheists of Florida's filed a federal lawsuit Friday against Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd that alleges her recent arrests are retaliation against her secular views. EllenBeth Wachs, jailed twice this year, is seeking an injunction to stop Judd from arresting her or launching new investigations about her. She claims the charges she currently faces are a result of her "assertion of a non-religious,
atheist viewpoint in the predominantly Christian-oriented Polk County.

Jan Platt - Pam Iorio - Kevin Beckner - Linda Saul-Sena - Ed Turanchik
Imagine, a county full of mass transit, bike paths, pedestrian friendly, jobs, our environment protected, the homeless problem resolved with compassion. We need people who can look beyond their own stupidity, people with vision of the future. People who look out for everyone, not just the few. Who knows, we could get mention in the same breath as, Miami, Atlanta even New Orleans. Instead we are nothing but what the late great Neil Rogers use to call us a nose-picking town. We might even get a cool nickname.

Did You Know Hillsborough County

Is under federal supervision under the Voting Rights Act
Due to past practices that were found discriminatory to Hispanic voters;

the county must submit its new district map to the Justice Department for approval. Federal officials need to closely examine a map that waters down the clout of urban voters and minorities.

There is a way to draw fair districts, and this isn't it.


Republicans enjoy a super majority on the Hillsborough County Commission,

and they look intent on keeping it.
These People Are Shameless.

Meet Shabana Churruca
I have always had a love for the creative arts dabbling occasionally in painting on canvases and doing various arts and craft projects. Recently, I began painting on terracotta pots and found that I was able to combine my love for spiritual balance and whimsy on the pots. Professionally, I am a psychotherapist and work to help people overcome obstacles in their lives. For me, painting takes me out of my cerebral analysis and into cerebral creativity.

"Obamabots", The "Professional Left", And Total Fabrications
Regardless though, when push comes to shove in November, 2012, I'll likely give Obama my vote again. I remember the mantra on the Naderite hard left in 2000 that there wasn't a difference between Bush and Gore, and, well, they were wrong. I'd rather have a weak Democrat in office than a Republican of any stripe.

End The War On Cuba

Today i enter a new item in Stogie's bucket list. Ending the embargo on the Cuban people. We owe it to the two generations who stayed and have endured. It has been almost 50 years now, and nothing has changed. The old ways of The Miami Cuban Mafia do not work. This generation is old and passing away. It's time for
Cuban-Americans everywhere to say enough is enough. Also consider this:

"It's time to stop talking solely in terms of what's best for the Cuban people. How about the wishes of the American people, who are consistently in favor of diplomacy with Cuba? Let's stop the hysterics about the freedom of Cubans – which is not our government's responsibility –

and consider freedom of the American people, which is.".....Ron Paul

Fidel Castro had great plans for Cuba, and then he became a tyrant. Just imagine, being able to visit and teach them about Democracy and Freedom. Imagine the Possibilities.

David Caton Vs. DeGrassiIn

Back in November, we were very disappointed to learn that Kodak had pulled its ads from airing during Teen Nick's popular series, DeGrassi: The Next Generation. At the time, we heard that Kodak has received a slew of emails from the Florida Family Association (FFA) for supporting a show that "targets teens with gay propaganda and other immoral behavior." The FFA seems to really have it out
for the show because there's not only gay characters, but a transgender one as well.
"How many high schools have a gay first-string quarterback who becomes lovers with someone else on the team? This relationship is extremely unlikely and they shouldn’t open this to dialogue, and I think that it is statistically improbable that you will have a female-to-male transgender who is in love with a lesbian or bisexual in a school setting.".......David Caton

Tampa Smokers

The Tampa Bay Rays: A Bunch Of Gutless, Politically Correct Ninnies
So, the Tampa Bay Rays wanted to pay homage to the rich heritage of organized baseball in their region by wearing the jerseys of the 1951 Tampa Smokers, a minor league team which played in the fair city many moons ago, for a July 2nd game. There was only one problem: the jersey featured a cigar emblazoned on the front of it. In a typical, knee-jerk, gutless reaction motivated by political correctness, the Rays made the decision to remove the cigar from the jersey to prevent the 4,000 Rays fans likely to be in attendance the psychological trauma and possible suggestive nature of seeing an image of a nondescript tobacco product. Won’t somebody think of the children?

End Federal Marijuana Prohibition

For the first time since marijuana was effectively outlawed by the federal government in 1937, we have a chance to make marijuana legal at the federal level. Rep. Barney Frank's new bill would end federal marijuana prohibition, making marijuana legal for adults and allowing states to decide their own marijuana laws, just like they can with alcohol and tobacco.
