Heartless Florida GOP Cowards Will Ask for Your Vote

Rick Scott
Trump wants him to run against Bill Nelson 
Jackie Toledo
We could have Debra Bellanti
Shawn Harrison
We could have Fentrice Driskell
Two Tampa legislators and Gov. Rick Scott, all with undistinguished records of public service, this week gave voters more reasons to support their opponents 
in 2018.
State Reps. Jackie Toledo and Shawn Harrison along with the governor cratered to the NRA lobby and would not even discuss gun control legislation in the wake of the murders of 17 schoolchildren 
in Parkland, Fl.
Their cowardice contrasted sharply with the mettle displayed by classmates of the victims, students from around the state, Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum, and furious parents who marched on the Capitol Wednesday to demand positive action from an inert, Republican-dominated state government.
Anyone who values children more than money were angry at Toledo, Harrison, and Scott who, in their own way, committed political hara-kiri this week.  All are cozy with the shadowy forces promoting a gun-obsessed culture that places the lives of every Florida student 
in jeopardy.

The Citrus Taliban: Democrat Kimberly Daniels

Every Florida school and school administrative building will have to prominently display "In God we trust" under a bill passed by the Florida House.
Kimberly Daniels, a Jacksonville Democrat and sponsor of the bill, cited the recent shootings at a Florida high school. Daniels said that God is the "light" and "our schools need light in them like never before."

No More Porn For Florida GOP Ross Spano

There is research that finds a connection between pornography use and 
mental illness.
His colleagues are helping him out and they are declaring pornography a health risk. here
Florida Dem.  Carlos Guillermo Smith is curious and asked Spano why there was an immediate need to pass the resolution and countered that there are more important bills and topics that should be taken up by the Legislature.
Mr. Spano we wish you well and may we recommend

Fellow Berner Paul Stolc For Leon County Commissioner

I am heeding Bernie’s call. My name is Paul Stolc and I would like to be your next Leon County Commissioner for District 5.
In 2015, I started my political journey by volunteering for a little known Senator from Vermont who was running for President on a message of justice – social, economic, criminal, environmental, etc. He empowered the people themselves to join the political process, involve themselves in their communities, and to become the change we wanted to see in this world. He taught us that making the world a better place was not just for those at the top, but came from those fighting from the bottom up. He called on everyone to fight for justice, and to run for public office no matter how small. 
He grew up in Tampa and his dad still lives here. We can't vote for him but we can help him. Share and donate

Tampa's Booming Downtown?

We are always hearing how our downtown is booming. Since our mayor has spent all of his time in office concentrating on downtown and neglecting the rest of Tampa, I decided to get off the #360LX taking me home and see if I could find some action. I picked a Saturday night thinking that would be the best time.
Nothing on Florida Ave: 7 PM

Or Franklin Street 

Tampa Steet was also lifeless

Well lets try Curtis Hixon Park

Nope, no action here

Everybody is always talking about the Riverwalk.
Lets go there

Nope. nobody here either

The Taco Truck guy looks bored

Where is everybody?

America Do The Math

Voter turnout
Belgium 87%
Sweden 85%
Netherlands 81%
Denmark 80%
Australia 79%
Norway 78%
Iceland 76%
New Zealand 73%
Finland 73%
Italy 73%
US 55%
MOL 33% of Americans just don't get it 
and probably never will.
55 - 33 = 22
That means only 22% that do are voting.
Note: Most of the counties in voter turnout are in Scandinavia. Goverment can work, you just have to participate.

Florida GOP Votes Down Motion To Take Up Weapons Ban

This was a party line vote
Even with Douglas students in the gallery these demons still  voted down a motion to take up a ban on assault weapons such as the AR-15 used by Nikolas Cruz when he killed 17 people at the school on Valentine's Day. here
Still think there is no difference in parties?
 This November you can change this.
But you got to vote! Remember the only way they get elected is via voter suppresion, gerrymandering and their small ignorant base.
You must turn out in huge numbers to overcome this.
There are plenty of days for early voting plus election day. 
Don't want to get off your lazy ass to do it?
