HIGH SPEED RAIL: BACK ON THE TRACKS?

Just when you think you can move on to another issue, here come the dirty tricks! 

 

Senator Bill Nelson is evidently behind a lawsuit that will be filed Monday (tomorrow).  It will challenge Governor Scott’s decision to return the taxpayers’ money to DC that had been set aside for High Speed Rail.  Lawsuit alleges he has overstepped his authority to do…

CHARACTER COUNTS

Like everyone else in the audience, I listened intently to the three mayoral candidates in attendance at the FCTP event and I came away knowing who I would support and why. I am supporting Mike Hogan. For many years we citizens have failed in our duties and responsibilities to consistently select principled representatives that could be trusted to act in our best interest and to protect, rather than capriciously spend, our tax dollars. I trust Mike Hogan.

While Rick Mullaney is an…

Into The Breach

As a FCTP member well into my second year, I volunteered to assist in whatever way I could at the event last night. What I saw last night is exemplified by the battle going on inside of the Republican Party since the advent of the Tea party movement. We see the grass roots Tea Partiers vs. those who just want to co-opt the energy of what was started with Rick Santelli’s rant in February of 2009. The most insidious part of this attempt to co-opt the movement is an all out attempt for the…

VOTE LEE FOR MAYOR

I ask that you take some time out and listen to the forum and the interviews. This city needs Warren Lee for Mayor. I believe that Jacksonville needs a Mayor that's ready day one. Does it really make a huge difference that he's a conservative democrat and not a republican. Jacksonville doesn't carry a political party on its shoulder, it carries a deficit and that's neither republican nor democratic

Why I will vote for Warren Lee

Last night, forum was more than interesting. I wanted to hear all the candidates, and I had learned enough about Mike Hogan that I was leaning towards voting for him. Rick Mullaney I could not vote for because he was the general counsel that got us into this mess.

Hogan seemed nervous to me, he has had a tough week dealing with his ridiculous Bombing comment and the trial issue. I have concerns about his union endorsements.  I decided to blog here after I see names of people who are…

Mike Hogan Hit a Homerun!

Mike Hogan proved he could cut taxes and get Jacksonville back on track last night.  His ethics soared above the other candidates when one stooped so low as to "sling mud" and try to distort the facts!  Mike stood high above the others and said, "I stand before you as an open book. I'm not ashamed of anything I've done." 

 

Let's look at the facts:

1. Mike has streamlined the Tax Collectors budget and reduced spending over 20% in the 8 years he has…

What's Mine Is Mine, What's Yours Is Mine

The U.S. Constitution clearly states, that all laws must be dealt with in a uniform manner and that rulings based on our laws, must be uniform and consistent. It is very clear, the State Courts of our great nation are not treating members of the US Armed Forces in a uniform or consistent manner. There are outrageous tragedies created by various State Court rulings affecting our fellow brother and sister veterans. Rank, gender, race, time of rank while in service, ability or disability is to… Continue

Governor Scott Still Keeping Promises

Governor Scott is at it again - working to keep the promises he made on the campaign trail (and perturbing liberals while doing so). Florida has once again rejected federal funds for the high speed rail thanks to the efforts of Governor Scott, the State chapters of the Tea Party, and concerned conservative voters.



High speed rail was touted as a necessary project for a struggling economy and the ultra-high unemployment that we suffer in the great State of Florida. Countless…

Mike Hogan is the Only True Fiscal Conservative in this Race!

The records are clear. There is one candidate who stands out as the true fiscal conservative in this mayoral race. Mike Hogan’s experience and proven record show his capability to shine as our conservative leader. Our city will be comforted in knowing that this man will lead our city by cutting excess costs and helping our small businesses grow. The other candidate is simply a string of words and talk with an untested and untrustworthy conservative balance.

HOGAN for Mayor

What a fun event you hosted last night!  As a new FCTP member, I was really excited about what you all stand for and have accomplished!  So glad to be a part of an organization that stands up with a loud voice for what our founding fathers believed and started!  That said, Hogan was the only candidate to prove he will be fiscally conservative and has a track record to prove it.  He's shown us what he can do and I believe he is the man to get this city back on tract. He stayed positive when his… Continue

Cooter's Fired Up and Other Reasons Why Democrats are in Trouble in 2012

by: Trent Derr - Morning in America

 

The other day on a Southwest Airlines flight back to Houston, I saw him, Cooter. He was one big dude, and he was making his way down the aisle of the plane carrying his duffel bag and his hardhat. As usual, his hardhat was decorated with stickers from most of the…

CNS News: Do Wisconsin’s Public Schools Deserve to Survive?

2/23/2011

Should we be having the discussion about making unionized teachers pay more for their benefits and change union negotiation rules or should we be forcing the public school system in Wisconsin into the private market solution and an improvement in the education the children of Wisconsin gets.  Whatever way Wisconsin goes, the other states should follow.  In Wisconsin, public education eats up more and more tax dollars while the education system there gets worse and worse, and…

The Hill: Democrat urges unions to 'get a little bloody when necessary'

The comment was from Rep. Michael Capuano (D-Mass.).  Guess cleaning up rhetoric is only for conservatives.    The comments were made in front of a group of union members in Boston. 

As an aside, an interview was done last night about a group of school teachers in Massachusetts that were rallying behind Governor Walker and controls on their…

Beware of amendments!!!

A warning regarding all amendments.

My plan is to vote no on any amendment that contains a feature I do not like.  Even if said amendment has lots of things I like.

Please remember that if an amendment like that passes, it will take another super majority approval to attempt to later back out the ugly items you just approved, if it can ever be repealed at all.  It is best…
