Bottling hypocrisy

Give-away to water bottling plant in Florida is on the wrong side of sustainability in many ways. We must follow the lead of those on the right path.

Good read by one of my favorites writers, Carl Hiaasen, on the irreparable and villainous damages being inflicted upon our state by the man who imagines himself our future President, Rick Scott. The alt-fact definition of political hero in our current world:  Sucking up to deep pockets while selling out your constituents (and sucking our Florida aquifer dry.)  Rick Scott takes his place among the pantheon of heroes who deserve a medal.

Dems and the insanity defense

Posted on

einsteinYou don’t need to be Einstein to understand that “the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, but expecting different results.”  So why are the Democrats continuing down this loopy path when it comes to elections in Florida (and elsewhere)?  Daily Kos tries to shed some light on the 2018 governor’s race shaping up in Florida.   If we’re being offered another DINO (Democrat in Name Only), as the piece says, history proves that is going to end badly, again.  Scott Maxwell, from the Orlando Sentinel, weighs in on the matter and gives the odds of winning the governorship to the Republicans (again) with the current likely candidates.  The disastrous Democratic leadership decisions of the past must not continue to haunt and hurt us.  We must demand the new leadership’s assurance that we will have access to a legitimate, fair and honest primary election.  An insanity defense isn’t going to cut it anymore.
