Florida GOP Voters Like To Take It Deep

Florida Times-Union
"Gov. Rick Scott — aka "Mr. Jobs"

Pensacola News Journal
"Welcome to Florida: the mentally unstable state"

Florida Today
"Plain and simple, it is a rip-off for patients, taxpayers and employers."

Miami Herald
"Memo to Mr. Scott: The Supreme Court said that states don't have to accept Medicaid expansion as part of the Affordable Care Act, 
but it never said rejection was a good idea."

Palm Beach Post
"Scott is looking more and more like 
a rebel without a cause."

Daytona Beach News-Journal
"This is pure brinkmanship by the House — staring down not only the Senate but also the Obama administration, 
and expecting one or both to blink."

Tallahassee Democrat
"Our state's leadership is embroiled in a kindergarten-style fight that would be laughable if it didn't have such serious consequences"

Slorida's Bill Nelson On List Of Disgraceful Democrats

Here are the others,
Sens. Ron Wyden (Oregon), Maria Cantwell (Washington), Tom Carper (Delaware), Ben Cardin (Maryland), Michael Bennet (Colorado), and Mark Warner (Virginia).

All voted to pass Fast Track authority for the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), easing the way for eventual passage of a trade deal corporations can read, but you are not allowed to. Passing fast track authority means that Congress hands over any rights to amend a trade deal, giving carte blanche to the negotiators and forgoing the democratic process. This is especially bad since the deal is being made in secret and the little we do know about it is awful for working families. here

Enchanting Creations in Miami Shores

Has been harassed by anti-gay activists for the past couple of months trying to get them to bake cakes with anti-gay messages on them. They have decided to make those cakes should they receive a real and valid order for one (they haven't actually received an order - just harassment to see if they'll "discriminate"). However, the owners say they don't want to profit from discrimination (against LGBT folks), so they will donate whatever profits they make from making these anti-gay cakes to the Human Rights Campaign. hereVisit them here

LA GACETA: The Advantage goes to Democrat Pat Kemp

    Democrat Pat Kemp filed to run for County Commission District 6 and named Mary Mulhern as her treasurer. She joins Democrats Brian Willis and Marisol Blanco. … That advantage goes to Kemp, whom we think is the favorite to win the Democratic primary and general election no matter who the Republicans pick as their candidate. In her last race, in 2014, she lost by just a half percent to Commissioner Al Higginbotham, who had the advantage of four times more money and the look of an incumbent.
    She’s already attracted big backers such as Betty Castor, Jim Davis, Ed Turanchik, Kent Bailey, Peggy Land, Sally Phillips, Sam Shah and Dale Swope. here

Brand GOP: Victor Crist and Al Higginbotham

Two years ago hundreds of people demanded that we start the conversation on transportation, the commissioners responded by creating Go Hillsborough to find out what the public wants. 
The number one selection of 16 categories: transit.

Yet, two Commissioners 
Victor Crist and Al Higginbotham 
told the Tampa Tribune they intend to derail the Go Hillsborough public input process before it’s over. What's worse the public proposal isn't line with what citizens have already asked for: there is ZERO transit included.

County Commissioners, We join others in asking you do three things:
1) Keep your promise and listen to the public: they want a balance including transit
2) Work with other leaders to come up with a transportation proposal for all citizens 
& for future generations
3) Stop trying to derail the process by making proposals before it is over

Tampa Police Targeting Poor, Black Neighborhoods

Tampa residents must be the lousiest bicyclists in Florida.They don't use lights at night. Don't ride close enough to the curb. Can't manage to keep their hands on the handlebars. In the past three years, Tampa police have written 2,504 bike tickets — 
more than Jacksonville, Miami, 
St. Petersburg and Orlando combined.
 Police say they are gung ho about bike safety and focused on stopping a plague of bike thefts. But here's something they don't mention about the people they ticket: 
Eight out of 10 are black. here
