It's last entry is April 2012. If someone was looking for information it looks like the group is inactive.

Just curious.

I emailed him requesting he push for Cut Cap and Balance to come off the table and vote yes to help the senate pass it. A long shot I know. Then it is all up to Obama. I watched Rubio speak on the senate floor on CCB so convincing and completely correct! Watch it on UTUBE It makes me proud he represents FL!

What is physical education?

running ,swimming , excercise  .A chance for KIDS TO BE KIDS AND EXERCISE .THATS IT .

NOT A COMPETITIVE ,ELEABOATE SPORTS PROGRAM FOR PARENTS TO SIT ON SIDE LINES AND FIGHT.

LETS PUT COMPETITION BACK IN THE CLASS ROOMS ..BACK TO THE BASICS....LETS COMPETE THRU ETHIC CLASSES TO LEARN HOW TO ACT AND CIVIC CLASSES TO LEARN ABOUT OUR GOVERNMENT .

LETS THEN LET THE KIDS PLAY ON PLAYGROUNDS AND A PLAY A SIMPLE BALL GAME DURING RECESS FOR EXERCISE TO GET THE BRAIN FLOWING WITH BLOOD FOR MORE LEARNING,  NOT FOR  THE AFTER SCHOOL TO TRAVEL TO OTHER SCHOOLS,and fight over who has the best player.

WE LOST OUR PURPOSE FOR EDUCATION !!!

WHAT WAS WRONG WITH THE OLD WAY EDUCATING A CHILD. The basic education grades 1 to 12 was provided BY THE TAX PAYER SO EVERYONE HAD A EQUAL CHANCE TO GET A EDUCATION WITH PHYSICAL EDUCATION , then AFTER 12TH GRADE  a student of 16 would be OF AGE TO GET A JOB,TO WORK FOR COLLEGE AND FILE FOR FINANCIAL AID IF NEEDED.THE VOTE FOR LOTTO MONEY WAS ORIGINALLY TO SUPPORT BASIC EDUCATION .LETS STOP THE LOBBIST,AND GO BACK TO WHAT WORKS.

We however allowed lobbist to direct the money to a Bright Schlars program that  now we are hiring coaches for 4.5 million ay a university, OR TO SELECT B OR HIGHER STUDENTS instead of giving all the money to the ELEMENTARY AND HIGH SCHOOL SYSTEM ,AS THE VOTERS INTENDED.We need to keep PHYSICAL EDUCATION SIMPLE AND WHAT CAN BE AFFORDED AND MOST EFFECTIVE TO STRENGHTEN ALL CHILDREN WITH A WORKOUT  AND NOT CREATE ONLY SUPERSTARS.

Lets get back to the basics.Give the all KIDS  a chance to be KIDS AND SIMPLY EXERCISE and LEARN.Lets put our LOTTO money ALL back into the lower education and if you want to go to college then you work and find a way to pay for it [ thru family or financial aid].THAT MY FRIENDS BUILDS CHARACTER in a child ,FAIR PLAY for all ,LESS GREED to a select group AND IS ETHICAL for all.

Can someone tell me why we can't change the WAY the lottery commission and the state legIslators to DISTRIBUTE  the lottery money ALL BACK TO THE ELEMENTARY AND HIGH  SCHOOL systems?

For example ,the lottery supports BRIGHT SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM AWARDS  B students or higher.

This program was lobbied for by the universties to attract the lottery money to them , AND FAVORS A SELECT GROUP OF FAMILIES WHO  MAY BE FORTUNATE  to have a child with a higher IQ OR MORE ABILITY ,OR  CAN PAY FOR A TUTOR,OR GO TO A PRVATE SCHOOL,OR may HAVE A SOLID FAMILY WITH A MOM AND DAD [ NOT DIVORCED] ,OR JUST HAVE THE BASICS LIKE FOOD AND HOUSING AND IN MOST CASES LIVE AND CAN AFFORD MORE THAN IS LESS FORTUNATE STUDENT WHO JUST had NO OPPORTUNITY,because they are AVERAGE.

Ma'am I cannot be at the school board event if given the chance will you broach the subject below

I have been on a writing campaign since before school was let out trying to prevent the school board from shutting down the JROTC program at Mandarin High.  Its very involved but centers around CNET 1533.9k, a Federal law enacted by Congress that governs all JROTC programs, all branches of the military across the county. This law prevents Military Instructors from teaching outside of military science.
Dr Richardson, the Principal of Mandarin High, and the school board say there is no money for the program but you have to remember the Navy pays a great deal of money for this program and everything the cadets need.
To the parents of the children in the program it is a vindictive move because Commander Hibbard who runs the program for all of South Georgia and North Florida will not allow his instructors to teach non military courses but Dr. Richardson did exactly that last year so the Commander put the school on probation for breaking that regulation.
The school board in return shut the program down.
Shutting down the program in a military town is unconscionable and beyond comprehension. Many cadets will be hurt by this move. The Seniors and Juniors will hurt the most that already have years invested in the program and need it for scholarships and placement in the military and officer programs.
Please help bring the problem to top of the pile
Thank you very much for your time
CJ

I am proud to be a part of theTea Party. We have to take the hammer out of Mr obamas hand and send him back where he came from and who knows where that is?

Billie: If you are interested in a speaker who exceeds all standards of being a genuine American hero in every sense, I recommend my friend Bill Byrnes.  Bill is the recipient of over 100 military decorations, including a Purple Heart, three Distinguished Flying Crosses, etc.  He was shot down over North Vietnam, captured, force-marched in his underwear for 30 days to a North Vietnam prison where he was tortured, beaten and starved for nearly a year.  And yes, he saw "Hanoi" Jane come through.  He has an awesome testimony as a Christian in which he explains how God answered their prayers in an unquestionable manner.

If you are interested, let me know and I will put you in touch with him.  I had him speak to my college government class, and one of the students said, "It's not often you get to meet a real American hero!"  I think that said it all.

It is a sad day for Jacksonville.

If the republicans would have voted and not been the "silent majority" Hogan would have won.

This needs to be a BIG WAKE-UP CALL for 2012.

After watching Mr. Brown profess this to be a 'Jacksonville' election and its about Jacksonville, I received a recorded call this morning from Bill Clinton urging me to vote for him. Didn't know Bill Clinton know where Jacksonville was.
