4-27-12 This week was the 4th meeting of the Election 2012 Group. Again 15 people met, but a different 15 as some were absent and some were new. The format of breaking into 3 groups was maintained with each group giving a summary at the end of the meeting, and the length of the meeting has been held to 1 hour. The groups have identified goals, prioritized actions, and are beginning to work on implementation. But they could use many more members to attend with their thoughts, ideas,…Continue
This is absurd. We are giving unelected bur.... the right to remove the rights of the people without anything more than their word the person may have done something wrong according to them only? Everyone better wake up as it IS getting worse by the day.

This is a treasonous act. I wonder how much longer this congress will allow Mr. Obama to give money to the enemies of our country and Israel and do nothing. He is destroying us and giving aid and comfort to our enemies on top of that when we are flat broke.
President Obama has overridden Congress to lift the U.S. ban on financial aid to the Palestinian Authority,…Continue

Kenya, from what I understand has now been converted to a Muslim country and socialism with the support of our president (although he was only a senator at the time the tax payers paid for him to go there and meddle in the Kenyan government and get his cousin installed has the prime minister. His use of tax payers money to support another country's socialist system is rather a tell about how well socialism works (it certainly isn't the utopia being painted, is it if, Obama's…Continue

I found this poem in the comments section of a news article and thought it to be quite appropriate. The author is an unknown person known only by his/her nom-de-guerre "neverlickthehand."
What do we say?
What to our Founding Fathers do we say, knowing we just slept our freedoms away. Would those in Gettysburg roll in disgust, Knowing the price they paid for us
Or the million plus that in uniform died, Seeing WE THE PEOPLE just run and hide. Or Americans standing in a…Continue
The boundary lines for district 7 have changed. The new district includes Mandarin & the southside area that is south of JTB. The schools in district 7 include some of the best in our county. Nonetheless there is still work to be done in order to strengthen our schools.
As a mother of 4 I know first hand the frustrations of a school not having enough text books to go around and the impact of transportation cuts; as well as the budget cuts that impact programs such as…Continue
What will you say to your children or Grand children if they ask you,what did you do when our freedom was being taken away? It is time for the Tea Party to be focused with one goal. GET THE COMMUNIST OUT OF THE WHITE HOUSE" My personal battle cry is:Any Body But Barrack Obama. We have to be united to put a stop to the tyranny that is destroying our Nation.

This bill has already passed in the senate and has been sent to the house. This attack on our 2nd amendment rights is very much like what was pulled on the American people to get the 16th amendment passed (and then, they did exactly as they wished and greatly expanded on what they did as far as increasing tax rates on those they deemed as successful and wealthy along with everyone else.............and we have all suffered the results of that horrid mistake of voting in favor of…Continue

This really is an important issue, and Obama can't be allowed to toss the first amendment rights of any religious group. I am glad to see the church take a huge stand on this! Your feelings?

Roman Catholic leaders are calling for two weeks of public protests against President Barack Obama's policies as they intensify their…Continue
Government has once again created this problem by injecting themselves into the student loan program thereby increasing the costs, and now as a solution, Obama may use it to win votes for himself by sticking the taxpayer with the bill. In essense, even if you would not give this man a dime for his campaign, he may be about to reach out and steal it out of your pocket anyway. Many people lost their jobs when Obama took this over (and here in Jacksonville I know of roughly 150…Continue
Shame on me for being such a skeptic, but isn't this very similiar to the 2 million dollar slush fund the mayor wants for discretionary (unapproved by council) spending? We elect representatives from our area of town, and I prefer spending decisions rest on the city council with an opportunity for public input and a vote by each council member based on what their constituents feel is appropriate. I don't think spending money and huge sums of money should be a unilateral…Continue

First, I think thanks are in order to the Times Union and Mr. Harding for bringing these issues up and making the public aware of them. As always, I also have some thoughts on both these issues, and I hope you will share yours as well. I think the daytime homeless shelter will act as a magnate pulling in even more homeless people and adding to the problem they are trying to solve (which is what usually happens when a government entity gets involved in "charity work" or micro…Continue

I do not wish to transfer power from the city council and our representative government over to the mayor with no oversight and him making big money choices all on his own based on his beliefs about what we should and should not do. That is not representative government at all, and people need to be very concerned as this is not the first attempt by our new mayor to take power away from the city council and the people and invest in the mayor's office with no oversight from the…Continue

More than a word of advise about re-electing this man. He has meddled in things he should not have, and because of his ideologies, he has not made the world a better place or the people who will pay the price for him inflicting himself where he did not belong and should not have due to what could kindly be called a flawed belief system. Madsen has thought supplied information about almost everyone related to Obama and even some of what we believe may be what Obama was and has…Continue

As you may know, Beau Biden, yes son of Joe Biden, took away the right of his Sheriffs to arrest anyone. This is totally UNCONSTITUTIONAL. Our sheriffs have more power than the vice president. Jeff Christopher is the only one of three that is standing and he needs all of our help!! There are only three counties in DE. If you know anyone in DE get this to them ASAP and have them call, call, call. Thanks!!!!!!!
Here is HB 290 which will be heard on the 25th, tomorrow, Wednesday at…Continue
As you are aware there are many companies that have collected personal data on us for 30+ years. One of these is Spokeo. If you go to: www.spokeo.com and type in your name, it may pull up boxes to the left of all the places you have lived in the past 30-50 years!!!!! Click on each of the cities, see if this is really you. There are many things about removing yourself from Skopeo that are not fun. I tried removing me about a month ago and completely…Continue

This bill is a huge concern for residents of Duval County and the taxpayers as the original bill if passed with only 10 votes needed, would have given our city council the ability to just pass any spending bill when they chose to do so without meeting the current legal obligation of waiting until the budget or having the new spending included in the budget they operate under. This is huge as things like doggie parks would just get rubber stamped without a care or concern about…Continue
