Tales from LaHood

You might remember a song from a few years ago by Bill Engvall, called "Here's Your Sign!" He could add a verse or two about the Department of Transportation. While most Americans are tightening their belts, a delegation from DOT was shopping for new ones during a 17-day jaunt to photograph billboards. The 12-member delegation, which is part of the International Scam Scan Program (ISP), is said to cost somewhere in the…

Sorry Baaaarack. We’re Not Sheep.

by: Trent Derr - American Exceptionalism

Those retiring from the Police Department are looking at $95,016, while the Police Chief gets a $264,000 annual pension. Fire Department retirees:…

The First Coast Tea Party and The Jacksonville Elections.

Eight months ago The First Coast Tea Party stumbled and fumbled through their first interaction with the Jacksonville City Council in an attempt to stop a second 9% tax rate hike in two years. It was initiated with a rally in front of City Hall. The Tea Party was told they are too late to stop the tax increase and it was passed with a .5% decrease at the September 28th meeting of the council. There were four or five television stations at that rally in Heming Plaza with news crews…
