On guns, Mr. Scott signed legislation protecting gun owners from foolish prosecution...
On spending, Mr. Scott has paid down the debt by billions...
On abortion, Mr. Scott signed laws cutting off state funding for abortions
On regulation, Mr. Scotts administration has eliminated some 2,300 burdensome rules.
On state pension reform, Mr. Scott fought to require state employees to contribute to their pension plans, and won the fight...
On public education reform, Mr. Scott signed laws that eliminated tenure for new teachers, and instituted merit pay based in part on student performance. The governor also signed an opportunity scholarship law making it easier for students to transfer from failing schools...
Just some perspective....sff
The writer had some good points on Scott but was downgraded by the East German judge for a hard-to-read website and a questionable command of the language, i.e. principal vs. principle.
Gov John Kasich did the same thing (accepoted Obamacare) in Ohio and not a peep against him. I think he did it to curry favor with the Dems to not come after him hard in 2014 reelection bid.
true....the guv needs to understand that normal decent folks have HAD it and are on the edge. The slightest move to cave on principles...even though false can set folks off.
After the election folks in Florida were in a state of shock/anger....as you know. Voter fraud, scumbags and gutterwhores were out celebrating....we lost Alan West and others. Even the sheriff in Broward county.
I left Florida shortly after the election...but will be returning home soon. I plan to get VERY involved with the S Florida/Broward Tea Party and like groups!
See ya around!
Forget it. Republicans can never outbid Dems on government spending.
“once down the dark side you walk, forever your destiny it will control.” Scott walks down the dark side when he takes federal money in hopes of winning the bidding war with Crist.
Its either him for another term or Charlie Crist, seems to be a pretty darn easy choice.
That's why "Democratic-Lite" loses every single time.
Thank you for this view point.
I still think it was a bad idea, but certainly sounds LESS bad now.
And the Florida rumor mill is whispering that Christie, the new demorat, will run in the demorat primary for governor thinking he’ll win and run against Scott. We’ll see how much money the ambluance chasers at Morgan & Morgan put in for Christie.
. . . and then there is the little matter of the special persecutor named in re: Trayvon Martin. I could have said, in re: George Zimmerman, but that wouldnt cover the reality of the issue. Because in reality that isnt about George Zimmerman, who in any event is a Democrat himself.
In reality the Democrats have turned Zimmerman into a caricature of Republican white men nationwide - and that is who is being persecuted in this case. We should be joining the Zimmerman suit against NBC for their egregious edit of Zimmermans discussion with the police dispatcher. But we should be extending the case to the Associated Press and its entire membership - and we should sue under RICO for triple damages, using the Duke Lacrosse perjury case as a notorious example of nationwide coverage of what was, within a week of the alleged incident, patently a case of prosecutor Nifong currying favor with political constituents, knowingly and intentionally against the interests of justice, let alone due process. Thereby showing a pattern of activity intended to demonstrate the influence of the members of the Associated Press.People of the same trade seldom meet together, even for merriment and diversion, but the conversation ends in a conspiracy against the public, or in some contrivance to raise prices. It is impossible indeed to prevent such meetings, by any law which either could be executed, or would be consistent with liberty and justice. But though the law cannot hinder people of the same trade from sometimes assembling together, it ought to do nothing to facilitate such assemblies; much less to render them necessary. - Adam Smith, Wealth of nations, Book I, Ch 10The AP has a rendezvous with oblivion, and this would be an excellent opportunity to cause it to keep that rendezvous.But I've a rendezvous with Death
At midnight in some flaming town,
When Spring trips north again this year,
And I to my pledged word am true,
I shall not fail that rendezvous.
