Florida INC. Stealing Peoples Homes

Florida is ground zero of the foreclosure crisis. No other state even touches Florida when it comes to the number of foreclosures over the past decade. So you would figure that the Sunshine State's government would be first in line to take advantage of federal assistance programs meant to help regular Floridians. You would figure wrong. here

Jim Norman: Obama Can Go To Hell

At the Hillsborough county Republican party’s monthly meeting at MOSI he criticized the guidelines issued by the Department of Education last Friday requiring schools to allow transgender students to use the restroom and locker rooms that correspond to their chosen gender. “You’re going to have to take me to jail, because I would stand up against that, I think it’s absolutely wrong” Norman said, boasting about how he stood up and supporting removing gays and lesbian from the county’s Human Rights Ordinance back in the early 1990’s. “If my daughter, my friend, went into a restroom and someone with a beard tried to follow in, they’d have to run,” Norman said, adding angrily, “So Obama can go to hell.” here
Mr. Norman is a funny guy. Oh and he got crushed by Tim Schock in a straw poll.
