This is our Florida?

Why do I keep saying?

“This is Florida Don’t Ya Know?”

Well, besides a few

(born native Floridians),

saying this statement each time

I asked a Florida question.

The proof is in the postings!

There are two funds on going for the Orlando victims.

Lately we are only hearing about one?

Governor Scott has been in Orlando

so much since this tremendous tragedy ,

that he is growing roots!

You know that he and the rest of the politicians will find a way to get their

fingers into the “Cookie Jar!”

O.K. NOW!

Who is running for No Show Rubio’s Senate seat?

(RUBIO and BERUFF)

CcUc37RW8AAo-Rh

(No Show Marco Rubio for one)!

 

And

Only to help keep republicans in power over we the Floridians,

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell

urged Rubio to seek reelection, noting that he had “ample time”

before the state’s June 24 filing deadline.

Notice it is not what is best for the country, only what is best for the Party!

(Carlos Beruff)!

Beruff has a thirteen-year history of

bundling massive checks

to political candidates

and

Securing government appointments for himself.

Contrary to his claims that he’s

“sick of the status quo in Washington,”

he’s been the guy bankrolling that status quo.

Since 2001,

Beruff has given more than one million dollars in political contributions,

either directly, through his wife, or through his companies.

(Sources: CQ Political MoneyLine, The Miami Herald, and Florida Division of Elections.)

Beruff has dumped millions of his own money into the campaign to attempt to paint himself as an outsider,

but even though he may not have held elected office before,

he’s still the ultimate insider’s insider.

His campaign finance records tell the tale.

Beruff has been calling Crist a “con man” in interviews during this election,

but he had no problem writing that con man big checks for years.

Here’s a list (data pulled from Florida Division of Elections):

Unlike federal law,

Florida law

allows political contributions from companies,

and

Beruff has been able to bundle contributions from his many corporate entities

to get past the statutory contribution limits

(currently $3,000 per individual or corporate entity for most races; was previously $500).

Of course, the crucial issue is the recipients of those donations.

YOU ARE CORDIALLY INVITED

When he ended his presidential campaign,

Marco Rubio owed about $1.9 million.

Now, he is running for Senate

And as you may have guessed,

He’s raising money.

This is not all that shocking,

EVERY politician needs to raise money,

But this is an inside look at what people will pay to meet our elected leaders.

They’re Killing Us. Help Us Stop Them

This past weekend, Breanna, our Airedale,

th4D3V8U14

got a little too close to a Black Swan

and it, the swan, let her know

just as one did to this jerk(Sor Velez).

Just because he is homeless

is no reason to punch an innocent animal in the face!

Both Swans were just letting us know that we were getting too close.

Un like Sor Velez, I apologized from the bottom of my heart and Breanna learned not to be so nosy.

A homeless Orlando man was arrested, for punching a swan

Posted By Colin Wolf on Mon, Jun 27, 2016

So, tonight my wife and I took our son down to Lake Eola to look at all the

Pulse Lounge Massacre Memorials.

We were with our brother-in-law Forrest Price.

As we were walking, the Swan in this picture was guarding her babies.

A man walks by and this swan reaches out towards the man to protect her babies but does not touch him.

The man after about 8 feet of walking turns around comes back and punches the Swan.

Little does he know my brother-in-law and wife are Orlando police officers?

It was nice to be with them, chase this guy down, and have him arrested.

More importantly, the swan was not injured. I miss being a cop.

No hunting for you in Florida this year

June 22, 2016 9:18 PM

http://www.miamiherald.com/news/local/environment/article85428442.html

The change in attitude was made more remarkable by the venue for Wednesday’s all-day meeting,

the tiny Panhandle town of Eastpoint.

Where two of Florida’s five bear attacks on humans have occurred.

Commission executive director Nick Wiley said

that was just a coincidence.

(RIGHT Nick Wiley,

JUST A COINCIDENT!)

Coincidence a remarkable concurrence of events or circumstances without apparent causal connection:

Just like the report at Disney World

where 234 alligators have been sighted

and you knew nothing about it?

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission

voted 4-3 against a hunt.

th03TL3ZG2

Last October’s hunt, scheduled for a week with a goal of 321 bears,

ended after just 2 days because 304 bears had been killed!

Further study of issues related

to the bear population have been requested,

and a hunt in 2017 remains a possibility

No Show Rubio is running again

O.K. Floridians, it is once again time to refresh our memories of or past experiences with (no-show Rubio) in the congress of the state of Florida and his time, or better said, “Lack of time in the Senate to represent you in the congress of this country?

Marco Rubio is called “No Show Rubio!” for a very good reason.

He has done, did, and will always do, a half-hearted job

of being a senator for the state of Florida!

If you are a female living

in the state of Florida,

“Heaven Help You!”

Because, as usual, Marco Rubio has already proven that he

‘Will Not Help You’!

Even though he said just one month ago

that he had completely ruled out running for reelection in the Senate,

it looks like

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.)

has had a change of heart.

CC5lY8QWEAAZ9Ku

Per The Washington Post, 

Rubio on Wednesday announced that he will officially seek reelection for his Senate seat, which Republicans had feared would certainly fall into Democratic hands unless Rubio got in the race.

th1LPQ3CEZ

The announcement comes after Rep. David Jolly (R-Fla.) told CNN on last week that Rubio would be getting back in the race.

thCAYTQ39Y

Rubio’s likely opponent in the race will be Rep. Patrick Murphy (D-Fla.),

who has consistently lead fellow Rep. Alan Grayson in polls for the

Florida Democratic Senate primary.

Improper use of party credit cards: From 2005 until when he left the state Legislature in 2009, Rubio had access to an American Express credit card paid for by the Republican Party of Florida. During his time as speaker, from 2007 to 2009, Rubio often used this card to pay for personal expenses—and some of those expenses ended up paid by the state GOP. In early 2010, when Florida newspapers began to dig into these credit card records, Rubio said he had done nothing wrong and had paid American Express around $16,000 between 2007 and 2008 to cover personal expenses that he had charged, such as $181.56 at the Museum of Natural History in New York City. Rubio also put a $10,000 charge on a party card for a family vacation at a resort in Georgia before ultimately gathering money from family members and paying American Express directly, according to The New Republic.

ORLANDO

The mass shooting that pierced Orlando’s summer calm and stunned the nation also became a high-profile, and risky, platform for the state’s ambitious politicians.

For days, Gov. Rick Scott and Attorney General Pam Bondi joined Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer as regular fixtures before the banks of television cameras in the media village that emerged in the police periphery outside of the Orlando nightclub.

U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio used the event to announce he had “been deeply impacted by” the mass casualties from an act of home-grown terrorism and was therefore reconsidering his decision not to run for re-election. Democratic state legislators called for a special session on gun reform. And Donald Trump sent a Tweet announcing the massacre was proof he was “right on radical Islamic terrorism.”

But elected officials also used the event to show empathy and command the resources of their offices to help in the recovery and, when it came to meeting mourning families and traumatized responders, most officials kept it private.

President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden flew in Thursday to spend more than two hours talking with the families of victims,

but they banned reporters and photographers from recording their visits.

By Grace Dolan-Sandrino

The weekend of June 12 sent me on a rollercoaster of emotions I never thought possible.

The previous Friday, I was an invited participant in the first-ever White House Summit for African-American LGBTQ Youth. I felt amazingly supported, empowered, and valued — by my school, by my family and friends, by President Obama, and by my LGBTQ community.

I was inspired.

On Saturday, I marched in the Pride Parade in our nation’s capital. I sang and danced with neighbors from every race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, and gender identity. We celebrated ourselves, each other, our allies, and our bright futures.

We were so beautiful and full of promise. I was so proud to be an Afro-Latina-Anglo transgender teen.

Then came Sunday.

I woke up to find that a hatred-filled assassin in Orlando had brutally murdered 49 members of our young, innocent, beautiful, and beloved community, and injured over 50 more.

They say the murderer was a U.S.-born Islamic terrorist. But Omar Mateen’s hatred for my community echoes the headlines I see about right-wing fundamentalists of other faiths who call for discrimination against people like me — and for the erasure of my rights as a human being.

His hatred echoes the oppression, arrests, and killings of my black and Latino brothers and sisters on the streets, in schools, and in our prisons. It reflects the cruelty of those who want to keep Muslims and Latinos away from our country — by force — and who still want to keep LGBTQ people from marrying each other.

They’ll even deny us the right to pee in peace, if that’s what it takes to dehumanize and humiliate us.

I’m not trying to be partisan. But it’s hard not to notice that President Obama held a summit to tell us how valued we are, while Donald Trump and many conservative lawmakers want to erase us.

Many Republicans invoked fears of international terrorism, but most said nothing about the members of our LGBTQ communities, who were the very targets and victims. They vow more Islamophobia, but make no mention of the ease with which the killers get and use assault weapons.

I’m only 15 years old, but I know what it’s like to have deep love and support, and I’ve witnessed and been the object of deep hatred and ignorance. I feel angry and heartbroken by this massacre.

A culture of fear and bigotry is again taking hold of this country. But my generation demands our equality and our human rights. We want to lead, and to determine our own future. We want you not just to love us, but to support us and to listen to us.

So if you don’t understand who we are and what we need, ask us.

To start, you can fight back against laws aimed at hurting us or erasing us, like thosebigoted and ridiculous bathroom bills. Punish politicians who block sensible gun control. Stop supporting lawmakers who want to exploit and exclude immigrants. Stop the people who are expelling and suspending and arresting and incarcerating us.

They’re killing us. Help us stop them.

We’re stronger than you think. We’re Generation Z, and we come of age in 2018. Our future is majority black and brown, and more openly queer than any before us.

We know that many of you are allies.

We need you, and you need us.

Together we can stop the rollercoaster of fear and terror

and start the climb to the mountaintop of love and liberation.
