MCM: Mario (Fredo) Diaz-Balart Blinded By Ideology

President Obama’s attempts at détente with Florida’s southern neighbor Cuba have been well-received throughout the nation and by many in Florida. Approval for the policy change has been wide-ranging and controversy at a minimum. That is unless a zealot has power in some capacity, as Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart currently has in the US House. here

Blinded by ideology to actually claim the Cuban embargo enacted in 1961 unilaterally by the United States 
has been successful.

"Go Hillsborough" Is A Sham

My survey form, Rail is not even an option.
When i asked why, they told me to write it in on the back.

As you can see here Transit routes and bike lanes 
 are our top priority.

Yet according to this, it is not.

Thank you to this very nice gentleman
(Brian of Hillsborough County)
For helping me out.

Tea Partier Sharon Calvert and Florida GOP Victor Crist were there.

Florida Medical Marijuana Campaign Effectively Relaunches Today

 Medical marijuana will be on the ballot in 2016 and the voters will pass what the legislature failed to.

The legislative session ended today - and with it the hopes of short term relief for thousands of sick and suffering patients throughout Florida. The House of Representatives decided to simply quit work, three days before the end of session, and with that, medical marijuana legislation is dead in Tallahassee. The same people who stood up against Amendment 2 last year, many stating that this was an issue better handled by legislature - simply turned their backs on patients, and ignored the will of nearly 3.4 million voters.  Despite courageous leadership from Senators and Representatives in both houses and both parties, Tallahassee has failed us again.

Clearly - the only way this is going to get fixed is through a constitutional amendment and our new petition. We have a donor - ready to match your donation through 
the end of May. here

"Today the Florida House of Representatives failed us, yet again. I never had much faith in Tallahassee to do the right thing. But I continue to have tremendous faith in the compassion of the people of Florida to do what the politicians refused to. Today marks the first day of the 2016 campaign for medical marijuana. We will put this issue back before the voters. We will win. Believe!" John Morgan

One of our last chances

"Good luck with that," That’s what one Tribune columnist said about Commissioner Hagan talking about a balanced transportation referendum for more options.

It’s a dare. Some think we won’t stand up to make sure we have options. 

We need to make it loud an clear to every doubter, naysayer, and tea party insider that it’s time to work together to create new transportation options for everyone. This is one of our last chances to be heard. Come out tonight for just 15 minutes:
Don't let these corporatist Republicans ruin our future.
If you Dems would of voted Pat Kemp would be in office and we would not be dealing with Higginbotham. No one even ran against Hagan.

Florida's Culture Of Corruption: The Florida Senate

As the legislative session stumbles to an end, the House and Senate have succeeded in distorting the will of the people beyond recognition. What these Republicans leaders have proven -- by failing to enact what the people expressed through Amendment 1 (that 1/3 of the documentary stamp tax on real estate transactions to be used to purchase environmentally sensitive lands) --  is that they are only concerned about their own security. here

The next time you vote, remember how you have been betrayed.

Racist At The Econo Lodge in Live Oak, Florida

A group of Flint high school students were wrapping up a college tour in Florida, on their way back to Flint, their bus broke down. They ended up spending the night at the Econo Lodge in Live Oak, 
Coordinator Blake Odum says right after dinner, is when the trip took a much different and disturbing tone."It was owned by white people. And they started taking pictures of all the kids as we were walking in and out of the hotel," said student Melissa Blacque. "They were calling us the N word. Odum says things felt so tense that to avoid any trouble, he tried to be proactive by calling police. When police arrived, they told the group to stay in their rooms for the night.
Odum says the officer left him with a chilling message.
"The officer pulled me to the side and said, 'You know, I just want to let you know this area right off the interstate, people aren't too accommodating to you all.' And he said, 
'If you know what I mean.' 

Dear Flint high school students,  we are not all racist in Florida, here we have a saying, the further north you go the further south you are. We don't consider the panhandle part of Florida, it is more like south Georga. visit us in Tampa Bay, we have great schools, (University of Tampa, USF, 
St Leo, Stetson University)
 and we would never treat you that way.

Shifty Florida GOP Ken Hagan exploiting term limits loophole

Commissioner Ken Hagan, a Republican, said he hasn’t ruled out leaving his countywide District 5 seat midterm to run next year in his old north-county District 2.  By switching back to his home-district seat, Hagan could avoid being forced out of office by term limits in 2018 and start a new clock — one that would allow him to stay on the commission 
until as late as 2024. here

“I don’t think anybody ever thought about that when we wrote the law,” said former Commissioner Jan Platt, 
one of the authors of the charter.

Florida GOP Voters Like To Take It Deep

Florida Times-Union
"Gov. Rick Scott — aka "Mr. Jobs"

Pensacola News Journal
"Welcome to Florida: the mentally unstable state"

Florida Today
"Plain and simple, it is a rip-off for patients, taxpayers and employers."

Miami Herald
"Memo to Mr. Scott: The Supreme Court said that states don't have to accept Medicaid expansion as part of the Affordable Care Act, 
but it never said rejection was a good idea."

Palm Beach Post
"Scott is looking more and more like 
a rebel without a cause."

Daytona Beach News-Journal
"This is pure brinkmanship by the House — staring down not only the Senate but also the Obama administration, 
and expecting one or both to blink."

Tallahassee Democrat
"Our state's leadership is embroiled in a kindergarten-style fight that would be laughable if it didn't have such serious consequences"

Slorida's Bill Nelson On List Of Disgraceful Democrats

Here are the others,
Sens. Ron Wyden (Oregon), Maria Cantwell (Washington), Tom Carper (Delaware), Ben Cardin (Maryland), Michael Bennet (Colorado), and Mark Warner (Virginia).

All voted to pass Fast Track authority for the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), easing the way for eventual passage of a trade deal corporations can read, but you are not allowed to. Passing fast track authority means that Congress hands over any rights to amend a trade deal, giving carte blanche to the negotiators and forgoing the democratic process. This is especially bad since the deal is being made in secret and the little we do know about it is awful for working families. here
