Florida Democrats for Governor

Some bids for political office have merit… other do not. A couple of the Democrats running for the right to be on the November ballot as a candidate for the Florida Governor race come to mind as severely unqualified; The first is Gwen Graham… I guess if your father was once a State Senator and Florida governor that you must automatically have what it takes to be governor. She does have a two year stint as a US House Representative, but decided not to run for reelection when the district she was a shoe in for the 2014 election was redrawn and was going to be a challenge to win in 2016. She was a housewife and mother for 13…

Dirty Political Season

You expect the liberals to use the 23% consumption tax associated with the Fair Tax Plan, HR 25, as a talking point to smear a conservative opponent; However this particular ignorant tactic is now being used by one conservative Republican to smear another conservative Republican in the Florida Governor Primary. One of the Political Action Committees supporting Adam Putman is running ads accusing Ron Desantis of voting to add 23% to the price of everything by cosponsoring House Bill 25, H.R. 25 or The Fair Tax Plan. This is why I have a problem with PAC ads that only give you a small piece of information and use it to make the opposition look bad. It is true that the…

News Media So Bias Against Trump

The main street media is having a field day at the conclusion of President Trump’s face to face meeting with Russian President Putin. It’s nauseating to watch them drool all over each other with talk about treason and resignation because they didn’t like what or how President Trump said in the post conference news briefing by the two leaders. So what if he basically said he trusts the word of Putin equally as much as he does our intelligence agencies. In my opinion I think Trump believes they are both slinging bull shit and lying most of the time. Why have we spent the majority of the last two years investigating Russian interference with our election process, but so far…

President Trump, Great Leader Despite

The left just can’t stand the fact that President Trump is doing what a good leader does… lead. The Russian deal is unraveling, Hillary’s email scandal isn’t going away like they want and despite the Justice Department issuing a report that there was no political bias that drove the FBI’s actions it’s painfully obvious that a political bias was running unabated at the highest level of the FBI. The big issue this week is the separation of children brought across the US border by their parents illegally. If you listen to the main street media you’d think Trump was this cruel cold-hearted hate monger, which couldn’t be farther from the truth. The laws that the Trump administration are now enforcing…

Solution to Stop School Shootings

The Millcreek Township School District located outside Erie, PA has solved the school shooter problem by arming every teacher with a 16” souvenir baseball bat. That’s right some moron convinced the rest of the school board that the best way to keep someone from coming into a school with a gun is to put the fear of God in them that they are going to encounter a teacher wielding a tiny baseball bat. They spent $1,800 to purchase 500 of the bats so that every classroom has one available in the event the students need protection from a gun toting nut case. There is no shortage of idiots who think this is the way to go. Keep the sign up…

Privacy Rights

Facebook is in the hot seat on Capital Hill this week as congress takes its shot at the head of the beast Mark Zuckerberg over individual privacy rights. From what I’ve seen of the Senate committee hearing it was a joke. The big issue is the transfer of personal data of Facebook’s 87 million users to Cambridge Analytica. Most of the time the media refers to it as a hack or they say the data was stolen, which I feel is so far from the truth. Cambridge Analytica didn’t steal that data they bought it from Facebook. That’s right, surprise surprise Facebook is in the business of selling the personal data that it’s users freely give up when they accept…

Media Desperation

Wow! How desperate is the main street media to nail President Trump with an offense that will force him out of office? MSNBC’s Joy Reid decided to use her air time on Sunday exploring fictitious scenarios where Trump gets taken into custody by Federal Marshalls for refusing to comply with a subpoena to be interviewed by Robert Muller. They had the Federal Marshalls handcuffing Trump and perp walking him out of the White House on their way to jail where he’d be incarcerated until such time as the interview with Muller could take place… a process that one guest said could take as long as 18 months. The wet dreams were endless. If the media wasn’t so determined to make…

Big Break For The Media

The main street media got a huge break overnight when the news broke that police had identified and cornered the Austin Texas bombing suspect who ultimately killed himself by detonating a bomb inside the vehicle he was hold up in. It gave the liberal media outlets a great excuse for not having to spend more than a few minutes reporting on the school shooting that occurred yesterday that ended quickly when an armed resource officer shot and killed the shooter. The shooter only had time to get off a couple of shots before being taken down by what can only be described as a good guy with a gun. One student is in the hospital and another treated and released…

Gun Control…

It’s been three weeks since the shooting at the Parkland, FL school and the Florida legislature has managed to formulate and pass the ‘Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Public Safety Act’, a bill that when enacted into law will do some of the things the gun control advocates have been clamoring for. The biggies are putting in place a three day waiting period to buy any firearm and bump up the age to 21 for any firearm purchase. It also will, much to the objection of the gun control crowd,  create a system for some school staff to be carrying a concealed weapon. So our legislators and Governor Scott will be patting each other on the back and bragging about…

Amazon Paid No Federal Taxes…. Oh My

Drudge linked to an article by Emma Roller on Splinternews.com that reported that Amazon made profits of $5.6 billion in 2017 but is paying no federal income taxes. Amazon is owned by one of the richest men on the planet and the article never mentioned how much he pays in federal income taxes on a personal level. Amazon is a LLC, which for those of you who are ignorant with the tax laws means that the profits from the LLC pass through to the owners of that LLC and who then pay income taxes on that money on a personal level. So when they say that Amazon is paying no federal tax it is technically correct, however there are federal…
