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

“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

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

La Gaceta Trashes Go Hillsborough

Patrick Manteiga, editor of La Gaceta, wrote a thorough analysis & major trashing of the county's push to raise our sales tax to pay for some transportation projects — mostly roads & road improvements, with relatively 
little for mass transit.

Hillsborough County Commissioner's Same Old Bullshit

The County Commission wants to add a half-cent sales tax to the ballot for 2016 and they only want 25% for transit and a guaranteed 60% for road maintenance and building. It's so much more of the same. Also, despite a $100 million dollar surplus this year, the Commission won't give anything at all to transit. $10 million dollars and we could have a high speed ferry system. $30 million and we could double the budget for HART. It's time for change! 
 Oh yeah - the consultants now have made $1.25 million.

Tampa Mayor Supports The MCM

Tampa mayor Bob Buckhorn is in no hurry to court Cuba. He has taken the position of the Uber- Right Wing "Miami Cuban Mafia". His aloofness is at odds with most in Tampa, from the business chamber to other elected officials, many of whom have visited Cuba already and have been actively pushing for better relations with Havana. Could it be that Buckhorn's antipathy is calculated for a speculated run for governor in 2018, where he would appeal more to South Florida's Cuban exiles? I am sure he knows that polls show a majority of Cuban-Americans say the U.S. should end its embargo of Cuba. 

On the other side of the pond the great mayor of St. Pete Rick Kriseman is a player. He didn't hide his glee earlier this week when the United States and Cuba reopened their long-closed embassies. "This can only mean great things for the Sunshine City and the Tampa Bay area," Kriseman said on Twitter and Facebook, where he repeated his intent to visit Cuba. He even wants to steal the Cuban consulate office from Ybor City. here
