QUOTE OF THE CENTURY, MAYBE EVEN THE MILLENNIUM Continue
Some people have the vocabulary to sum things up in a way you can understand them. This quote came from the Czech Republic. Someone over there has it figured out. We have a lot of work to do.
"The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far…

It was one of those mornings. I was awakened by the sound of thunder and flashes of lightning piercing the darkness of the room. It was 4:30 and I didn’t want to get up. As I laid there watching the window light up and the booming sounds of thunder, I was taken back to my childhood. …

What are you going to be doing on Tuesday, Nov 6, 2012? You may not have it marked on your calendar yet but I’ll bet mentally you are saying “That is the day we vote conservative Americans into elected office and vote President Obama out!”. I’ll bet you are firmly committed to that action. Are you going to do anything between now and Nov. 6, 2012, to help conservatives get elected?
If you are from Jacksonville, you just got “shellacked” in the mayoral election by the national… Continue

There is a victory here and we wanted to thank those in the tea party who stood up and did something about this important issue. You are all great patriots and a great example to what it will take to make a difference in our city, state and union...Standing up and getting… Continue

This post may be a day late for Flag Day, but it's never too late to be reminded of the heritage and history of our great flag.

On Tuesday, June 14, 2011, Senator Marco Rubio delivered his maiden speech on the floor of the United States Senate. Focusing on themes of "The New American Century," Senator Rubio celebrated the "American miracle" that allows so many to achieve their dreams and resolved that we all continue to fight for America's role as a shining city on a… Continue

I am concerned that the main stream media will dictate the terms in our selection of a good elect able candidate for president in 2012. Last night’s debate questions seemed to be aimed at those litmus issues over which a president has little control; issues such as abortion and gay rights and gays in the military. The real issues that must be brought to the forefront and openly discussed should be what are we going to do about unemployment, onerous federal… Continue

I am high in the sky flying home from New Hampshire after last night's Presidential debate. What a wonderful experience it was for me personally and even more so for the tea party members.
Last night we saw a renewed sense of love for America and the values we stand for. Prior to the event starting at 8:00 we had a pre-program session where we learned how the evening would work with the production team. We also were welcomed to the debate by the university President and heard… Continue

I watched, very intently, last nights Presidential candidates debate, every time the tv cameras panned the audience I looked for our beloved Billie.
Finally a 2 second flash, there she was in all her glory, looking very absorbed, with the debate.
It was a very good snapshot of the various candidates.
In my opinion, Mitt Romney did very well, so did Michele Bachman, and I was impressed with Herman Cain.
I know Billie will be back home soon, filled with renewed… Continue

I got off the plane, picked up my bag and stepped outside to meet up with my ride to the hotel. I was not expecting the blast of cold air that hit me and immediately caused shivers that served as the opening conversation with the driver.
Reminder to self...check the weather before your journey and throw a sweater in your bag just in case. Always be PREPARED.

Howard Troxler is retiring from the St Pete Times this weekend. He has been a voice for Floridians for many years. His willingness to represent working Floridians interests as a journalist is unparalleled.
This story reflects one of the last issues he took on before retiring. These leadership funds are toxic to our state government. These guys should be responsive to their constituents, not leadership that has its own agenda, securing leadership fund… Continue

In case anyone is under the delusion the city council can appoint and micro manage the ethics commission, you need to read this opinion piece written by an attorney who served on the Jacksonville Ethics Commission for 3 years and what he encountered. I have also included an opinion piece supported by all the heirachy at the Times Union in support of a strong independent ethics commission and could not agree with them more.
