They want us to trust them to regulate their own pollution, and to*****with the EPA.” This might all be just a stroll through the Wayback Machine if not for the fact that Scott is running for U.S. Senate. Scott recently declared a State of Emergency over the algae outbreak (because waterfront-dwelling Republicans might vote.) Among other things, it kindly provides loans to counties struggling with toxic green slime. Maybe Sarasota County could use the money. They had workers and tractors on the beach yesterday, scooping up thousands of pounds of deceased marine creatures. “Tourists weren’t scattered on Venice Beach Wednesday morning, but hundreds of dead fish were,” reported the Sarasota Herald-Tribune. “Visitors piled into the parking lot, got out of their cars, started hacking, coughing and sneezing, and then quickly left the beach, which had become a tableau of death.” Visit Florida, y’all!

Carl Hiaasen’s comments on our water situation, Rick Scott, Pam Bondi and Adam Putnam In one of the most brazen moves, Bondi and Scott filed legal action in 2014 to block cleanup of Chesapeake Bay. If you’re thinking WTF, I’ll let Florida author and Miami Herald columnist Carl Hiaasen explain it: “Why would the state of Florida try to obstruct the cleanup of public waters hundreds of miles away from our own?” Hiaasen wrote, “Because Bondi and Gov. Rick Scott are complete tools. They aren’t suing on behalf of the citizens of Florida; they’re suing on behalf of big agricultural and development interests that don’t want the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency enforcing clean-water laws anywhere. Among the lobby groups trying to dismantle the Chesapeake Bay Clean Water Blueprint are the American Farm Bureau Federation, the National Home Builders and those famously civic-minded folks at the Fertilizer Institute.

So DeSantis selects a Cuban woman to court the Hispanic vote. DeSantis has clearly aligned himself with Trump, but the Cuban woman he selected has tweeted her disgust of Trump (“Wake up Florida voters, Trump is the biggest con-man there is,” Nuñez tweeted. Now she deletes her tweet, but we aren't fooled by the deceptions of the Trump GOP camp. Vote for the Florida of tomorrow, vote Gillum!

Let's NOT forget, Gillum is still under investigation for wrong doing in Tallahassee. DeSantis has served our country and truly cares about our country. It's all about a photo-op for Gillum.

Gillum, FBI probe target & failed Mayor is simply a racist in the likes of Barack & mentor Al Sharpton appealing to the low IQ crowd and those voting skin color. Proof? Easy. DeSantis (that actually fought to protect us)when making his don't monkey-up recent progress statement meant nothing more than that. Just as O'bumo used the same term in his speeches. Gillum could have replied to the low IQ crowd salivating for racism charges.. "I will not lower myself to such nonsense, I realize it was not racial. I'm better than that..I want to win on the issues as a man with a plan!" BUT NO.. We got the low class race baiter extension of Barack and Louis Fake-a-Con joining in to imply DeSantis a racist. Open borders, sanctuary cites, against gun rights, high taxes, Corruption probe, a demosocialist backed by one of the USA's greatest enemies & haters, Mr. Soros. Unfit for ANY office.

Seafood -- You decry voting by skin color -- as you well should, but you seem to be OK with letting MONEY vote : HOW is that ? ? ?

You invent the term "demosocialist" -- but here is a fine descriptive term for YOUR sort : TrumPUTINIST.

THINK of THIS : Were our so-called "Conservatives" ever able to gain full non-obstructed sway, we ALL would definitely NEED Gun Rights for defense against the State ! ! !

Mr Wollschdts..grow a backbone... Stop assuming and putting your words in my mouth and then criticizing me for them. That's how a -COWARD- "wins" a "debate". If you knew anything about the US you would know that one of our fundamental rights guaranteed to us, the right to keep and bear arms...was for the sole purpose of defending the citizens from the State if the State became oppressive. If you would care to debate which you have proven 100000 times over that you are completely incapable of (only petty mindless harassment) first grow a backbone, stop putting your sick opinions in other peoples mouths and becoming their judge & juror.....Again, the slippery cowardly textbook "liberal" way of desperately trying to somehow "prove" a non-point. Go away - Harass someone else.

So much for business tax cuts will create jobs and will pay for themselves. The big picture: “The budget deficit is widening in a big way. In the first 11 months of the fiscal year, the deficit was $895 billion, which is $222 billion more than the previous year. Outlays have climbed 7% while revenue rose 1%.”

It is working so well, the Trump administration and “the Treasury Department are considering another tax cut for the wealthiest Americans through a change that would not need approval from Congress, officials said, a move that would follow a package of tax cuts last year that also benefited the super-rich. The agency is studying whether to allow investment income, known as capital gains, to be adjusted for inflation in a way that shields more of it from taxation. Most capital gains are paid by wealthier Americans, who disproportionately hold large portfolios of investments.”

This running our government like a business????

antico -- The Long and Short of it is that MONEY does NOT have a soul -- only a hunger.

Fortunately, with Full Automation, Money will gradually vanish. . You doubt ? . Think of the earliest humans, before Money was invented.

“Update | Florida Senator Marco Rubio admits that the Republican tax cut plan, which benefits corporations and the wealthy, will require cuts to Social Security and Medicare to pay for it. To address the federal deficit, which will grow by at least $1 trillion, Congress will need to cut entitlement programs such as Social Security, Rubio told reporters. Advocates for the elderly and the poor have warned that entitlement programs would be on the chopping block, but this is the first time a prominent Republican has backed their claims.”
