Florida CS/HB 1355

Think voting is too easy now? If you do, the Florida Legislature is on the case to make it much more difficult. If Republican leadership in the legislature has their way this will be Florida’s reality. A sweeping elections bill (CS/HB 1355) that is being fast-tracked through the GOP-controlled legislature would, if passed, trample democracy and impact Florida’s elections in devastating ways.

Ron Paul's take on Cuba

"If we wouldn't have had this embargo for 40 years, Castro would have been gone a long time ago, history shows you're more likely to get rid of a dictator if you undermine his support by trading with him."

Fight For Florida: "First"

Florida Mayor Blames Atheists for World’s Problems

Mayor Sonny Nobles of Live Oak
"The main point is that if people around the world truly had God in their lives, there would not be any of the things that atheists point to in order to discredit a belief in the Almighty. God is caring and loving. He is not a mean God. If people were to turn toward God and not away from Him, there would be a heaven on earth.
God bless us all."

Charlie Sheen Trumps The Donald In Tampa

Charlie said that a few years back he went to dinner with Trump and Donald told him “I like you, so I’m giving you this gift from Harry Winston.” It was a pair of silver and diamond cufflinks that Trump bragged was “worth $100,000.” Charlie was surprised and grateful and a few years later happened to have the cufflinks appraised. He was informed that the links were cubic zirconium and worth “about $60.”

Making The World Safe for Hypocrisy

Making the World Safe For Hypocrisy
Is a chronology of the largely suppressed history of the United States. It is the history that good upstanding Americans are not supposed to know. Almost everything you read here is based on publicly available information and most historians know all about it. And yet they remain strangely silent, allowing the fantasyland, propagandized version of American history and the fatuous pseudo-patriotic nonsense spewed by politicians and the mass media to stand unchallenged.
