The miracle of fuzzy math at work

Facts don’t lie, people do!

By Daniel Tilson

Wake the kids, time to celebrate “Cut My Taxes Week” with Rick Scott!

Um… “Hip-Hip…Hooray?”

Or is that, “Hip-Hip…I broke my damned hip and your crummy little tax cut can’t help, I need health insurance!”

You could ask why that $43 compares so unfavorably with the $3-4 billion in corporate tax evasion he and his legislative allies let Florida’s biggest, most profitable businesses get away with each and every year.

The main event features Gov. Scott and special guests (pinch yourself) that include University of Florida mascots Albert and Alberta Gator mingling with the general public at

a special “Tax Cut Calculator” booth in the Florida State Capitol.

There, you can see the miracle of fuzzy math at work.

Just enter the amount you pay monthly for TV and phone services, say $100, and wait for the magic.

Holy Cow, look, you could save a total of $43 in taxes and fees on those services next year!

Before you go rushing out to book that special family vacation you’ve been unable to afford for years, you might as well take advantage of the rare opportunity to talk economic turkey with the governor.

Chances are he’ll start by saying something like:

“Florida families know how to spend their hard-earned money better than government can.

But you’re smarter and savvier than he assumes.

Ask how that adds up, when so many low and middle-income folks with 10 grand in credit card debt spend so much dough on slot machines and lottery tickets.

Ask why so many got trapped into mortgages from Hell, and lost their homes.

Oh, yeah…

Don’t get discouraged when he doesn’t acknowledge or answer your actual question.

It’s his thing.

Any question threatening to disrupt his rendition of

“Everything is Awesome”

will be met with answers such as:

context Florida

“This year, Florida has a $1.8 billion surplus and we have the resources available to continue to cut $673 million in tax cuts, including our proposal to cut the cell phone and TV tax. Every Florida family will be able to get back real money back with our cell phone and TV tax cut.”

You could ask why that $43 compares so unfavorably with the $3-4 billion in corporate tax evasion he and his legislative allies let Florida’s biggest, most profitable businesses get away with each and every year.

But why worry about tax fairness, when you “will be able to get back real money back” —

to quote the governor word for word.

Forty-three bucks!

The way Scott and Republican legislators insist on making a big ballyhoo about tossing us economic table scraps

(remember how last year’s big “It’s Your Money Tax Cut” turned out to be a $25 annual reduction in auto fees?),

you’d think they take most of us for ignorant and/or stupid.

But you can prove otherwise this week, when you visit the governor at his propaganda booth

Ask how dare he try tricking a Florida middle class just treading water into thinking Republican economic and tax policies have done anything but create a record-breaking and ever-widening income gap between the rich and everybody else

– thanks to placing unfair burdens on working families and retirees.

Ask about the recent release of yet another major study, this one from a nonpartisan economic think tank, ranking Florida as having the second most unfair tax system in America.

Just don’t expect real answers; at least not ones that make sense or are based on actual factual information.

Try not to let frustration take over.

But, if you are ordered to stop kicking the “Tax Cut Calculator” and told to vacate the capital by Scott’s security guards, remind the governor of an old adage on your way out.

Facts don’t lie, people do.

“It’s your money Florida!”

$400.00 an hour Florida

“It’s your money Florida!”

Governor Rick Scott’s favorite saying this time around is

“It’s your money Florida!”

What he is not telling you my Floridian neighbors is

“How he is spending your money!”


You read this right, that’s four hundred dollars an hour of our tax money for ‘outside attorneys’ to defend the government officials that ‘YOU not ‘ME’ voted back into office to spend your money on themselves!

9 Investigates Florida cabinet members use of outside attorneys

All four members of the Florida cabinet have hired outside attorneys and are passing the cost along to taxpayers.

Responding to an open records request by 9 Investigates, CFO Jeff Atwater, Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam, Attorney General Pam Bondi, and Gov. Rick Scott supplied agreements between each and outside legal counsel.

State workers in Florida banned from using ‘climate change’

Florida banning climate change or global warming

By the way, another sinkhole opened in Florida today!


State workers in Florida banned from using ‘climate change’


Can Florida prepare for climate change without saying the words?


The Florida Department of Environmental Protection, the agency responsible for setting and enforcing conservation guidelines for the state of Florida reportedly issued directives banning other state workers from using terms related to climate change or global warming in reports.

Say What?

The privileged class‏

Give me a few minutes and you will read this on my blogs and websites

From a friend in California to all of my friends on my blogs from me!

I don’t normally send this stuff on but this is really important that we do something about it!!!!!!!!!

Asking me to overlook a minor Safety infraction is asking me to compromise my belief in the values of your life.

Must feel good to be in a privileged class.

28th Amendment, 35 States and Counting

It will take you less than a minute to read this.

If you agree, please pass it on.

It’s an idea whose time has come to deal with this self serving situation:

Children of Congress members do not have to pay back their college student loans.

Staffers of Congress family members are also exempt from having to pay back student loans.

Members of Congress can retire at full pay after only one term.

Members of Congress have exempted themselves from many of the laws they have passed, under which ordinary citizens must live.

For example, they are exempt from any fear of prosecution for sexual harassment.

And as the latest example, they have exempted themselves from

Healthcare Reform, in all of its aspects.

We must not tolerate an elite class of such people, elected as public servants and then putting themselves above the law.

I truly don’t care if they are Democrat, Republican, Independent, or whatever.

The self-serving must stop.

Governors of 35 states have filed suit against the Federal Government for imposing unlawful burdens upon their states.

It only takes 38 (of the 50) States to convene a Constitutional Convention.


Each person that receives this will forward it on to 20 people, in three days most people in The United States of America will have the message.

Proposed 28th Amendment to the United States Constitution:

“Congress shall make no law that applies to the citizens of the United States that does not apply equally to the Senators and/or

Representatives; and, Congress shall make no law that applies to the Senators and/or Representatives that does not apply equally to the

citizens of the United States.”

You are one of my 20.
