Amendment 4: Voting restoration amendment.

Remember the amendments #4 voted on and passed by Floridians?

Your Florida Congress does not know how to ‘Restore the Amendment’ that they implemented years ago?
Amendment 4: Voting restoration amendment.
Allows those who have completed their entire sentence to earn the right to vote back except for those convicted of murder or felony sex offenses. 
Voters Restoration, now Florida does not know how to restore the Voters Restoration act?
So
Why are they still being voted back into power and money on your tax dollar?
Because, most if not all are non-white voters!

Don’t you wish you were their customers?
Some are as big as your hand, while others could fit on the head of a tack. Regardless of size, butterflies are creatures of beauty that are a joy to watch. According to entomologists, there are 200 species of butterflies and moths with breeding populations in Florida. Many others visit or migrate through our State.
The most successful butterfly habitat includes plants which meet the needs of butterflies during all four stages of their life cycle: egg, caterpillar, chrysalis and adult. After mating, female butterflies search for the perfect host plant on which to lay their eggs. Not just any plant will do, and native plants are favorites. Females must find a plant that will provide food for their young who emerge as caterpillars with voracious appetites and survive on leaves of the host plant. Most caterpillars have defenses other than coloration. Some hide in curled leaves or silk webbing, while others emit an odor that is repulsive to an enemy.
A caterpillar’s best defense is quick growth, escaping would-be predators by shedding skin to change into a chrysalis. It quickly attaches to plant stems protected by surrounding vegetation. Inside the chrysalis, the adult butterfly is formed by metamorphosis and emerges to sip the sweet nectar from Florida’s flowers.
Time from egg to adult is five weeks. Adults lead a life of leisure, eating, mating, laying eggs, sleeping, and of course, escaping predators. Enemies of these gorgeous, day-flying insects are primarily human creations – vehicles, pesticides and parking lots. Others fall prey to disease and natural predators. Ants, particularly fire ants, along with other insects, arachnids (spiders) and birds are among the major predators of butterfly eggs and caterpillars.
Adult butterflies are capable of traveling considerable distances. During the fall, monarchs travel from southern Canada to central Mexico. In Florida, the monarch is not the only long-distance traveler. From August to mid-October, huge numbers of cloudless sulphurs, long-tailed skippers, common buckeyes, gulf fritillaries, clouded skippers and others come south with the rest of the snowbirds to spend the winter in Florida.

Red Tide has been coming to Florida since 1844

However, humans have been putting Sewer, trash, oil, gas, fertilizer, Blah, blah, blah, blah into it ever since human came onto Mother Earth!
Now we have Blue and green algae adding to it also,
pollution from humans! Scientists:
Lake Okeechobee runoff may enhance red tide
(WELL DUH)!
Mote scientists and an agricultural leader say there is no single cause or solution for red tide.
The first reporting of Red Tide in Florida
was 174 years ago!
We know what ‘Red Tide is,
what we want is for you all to stop talking
and
start fighting it!

Bla, bla, bla, bla, bla.
Red Tide has been coming to Florida since 1844.

However, humans have been putting Sewer, trash, oil, gas, fertilizer, Blah, blah, blah, blah into it ever since human came onto Mother Earth!
Now we have Blue and green algae adding to it also,
pollution from humans!
My Great Granddaughter knows what is needed to clean up our beaches and the Gulf of Mexico.
However,
scientist and politicians will never do anything to help
because there is no profit in the solution,
only money leaving their pockets
and
not into their pockets!
First
We need to clean the polluted, Red Tide, Blue Algae, Green Algae(People) from congress and the White house!
I said it before and I will always be saying it again and again,
we need to clone ‘Senator Bill Nelson’ and fill congress with
‘servants of the people’,
not a congress that
‘believing that people are to serve them’!
Please compare the last two political ads for Senator Bill Nelson
and
compare them to
the latest ads from Rick Scott?

I rest my case!

Voting Day in Lake County Florida

Voting Day in Lake County Florida

You can leave those ‘Republicans’ in the running as blank,
(If you dare, hint-hint)! 

Here is a few samples of why!

If I did not, who would be voting against ‘Gary Cooney’?
You ‘brag’ about backing a ‘Nazi loving’, ‘White supremest’, ‘Women hating,’ ‘Female abuser,’ ‘Over weight Slob,’ and also the backing of a ‘sly,’ ‘greedy,’ lying,’ Government official’!

Wouldn’t this algae problem be placed on the shoulders of Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam

the governor of Florida for not doing their job?
http://www.sun-sentinel.com/local/broward/fl-scott-signs-budget-20150623-story.html
Governor Pass the Buck Rick’ is trying to blame Senator Bill Nelson for our algae problem?
Senator Bill Nelson has to face a Republican controlled Florida Congress and a Federal Republican controlled congress just to try to get a bill to the floor let alone passed in congress.
Rick Scott has to get out of his own way to pass bills and does not need his republican controlled congress however, even he cannot because he has cut anything dealing with our climate!
Now ‘Governor Pass the buck Rick’ wants to replace the only senator in Florida working for the Floridians?
http://www.dailycommercial.com/news/20180710/toxic-algae-problems-impacting-election-year-politics
Republicans point their finger at their opponents and do nothing year after year after year!
DeSantis is blasting his GOP opponent — Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam — for his ties to the sugar industry, which often is blamed for contributing to excessive nutrient loads that feed algae blooms in Lake Okeechobee, water that is then discharged into the Caloosahatchee and St. Lucie rivers during heavy rain events, fouling those waterways.
The governor is coming under fire for his failure to curb the algae blooms and their environmental impacts since taking office in 2011.
There was a devastating bloom in 2011 that blanketed the Indian River Lagoon, killing 73 square miles of seagrass beds and coinciding with the death of more than 500 manatees, dolphins and pelicans.
That same year Scott pushed through a big rollback of state growth management laws, regulations that had helped control development and its impacts, such as fertilizer runoff and human waste that leaks from septic systems.
Scott also slashed funding for the state’s water management districts, which play a big role in protecting waterways, and appointed board members that critics called too deferential to polluters. And he signed legislation in 2012 that repealed a state law mandating that septic tanks receive regular inspections to ensure they’re not allowing untreated waste to seep into water systems.

The governor of Florida is taking advantage of you!

The governor of Florida is taking advantage of you!
This is not me being political, this is a fact!
Proof?

Was the governor of Florida (as governor), handing your tax money out to companies to receive their money into his personal Super PAC?
Just Asking?
Do you have the time to work and keep up with every political ad that he is pumping out?
I cannot and I’m retired and trying to keep up.
Only to help keep my neighbors, friends and family advised to what you should know to better your life.
That’s his plan; after all it got him into office that last time so why not spoof you again?
Your governor in Florida is taking advantage of the working Floridians with faults, fake and some ‘half-truths.’
Never the truth, because he knows that you are working, sometimes two or more jobs, just to keep your head above water!
Who is at fault making you work so hard, so often and hoping you can keep up?
Well which political party has been in the governor’s seat for the past 20 years?
Jeb Bush, Charlie Crist, Rick Scott!
http://pasileylfloridanews.blogspot.com/
Watch this, when the governor is not fooling you, his service –packs and/or the Republican Party are stepping in to keep you dizzy with their faults, fake and some ‘half-truth’ ads!
Even your media, while trying not to lose all of that free political money, are pointing out his faults, fake and some ‘half-truth’ ads!
Surprise this to a certain extent, even includes Fox News!

Was the governor of Florida handing your tax money out to receive their money into his personal Super PAC?
A super PAC led by Florida Gov. Rick Scott raked in donations from two private equity executives after Scott’s administration directed lucrative state pension investments to their firms, according to government records reviewed by MapLight and Capital & Main.
The donations were made to a committee that’s now supporting Scott’s U.S. Senate bid, despite a federal rule designed to prevent financial firms from bankrolling the election campaigns of public officials who oversee state pension investments.
Scott, a Republican, began chairing the New Republican PAC in May 2017 and announced his former campaign manager would serve as its executive director. Soon after, the group received $5,000 from New Mountain Capital Chief Executive Officer Steve Klinsky and $50,000 from Energy Capital Partners founder Douglas Kimmelman.
The contributions flowed to the super PAC after New Mountain Capital and Energy Capital Partners received a combined $250 million worth of new investment commitments from Florida’s state pension system in 2014 and 2015. Scott is one of three state officials who oversee the $160 billion pension system. During the most recent fiscal year, the Florida investments generated more than $3 million in fees for the firms.
https://maplight.org/story/rick-scott-super-pac-received-donations-from-firms-with-florida-pension-business/
Ahead of a likely 2018 run for U.S. Senate, Gov. Rick Scott has set up a political action committee designed to appeal to younger and Hispanic voters.
The super PAC, called New Republican and announced last week, is meant to sell the GOP’s philosophy to young voters who want less government in their lives, Scott said.
http://www.orlandosentinel.com/news/politics/political-pulse/os-gov-scott-political-committee-20170518-story.html
Less than 24 hours after Rick Scott announced his candidacy for U.S. Senate, he faces a Federal Election Commission complaint accusing him of breaking election laws by raising and spending unlimited campaign donations to prepare for his senate campaign.
Gov. Scott a year ago launched his New Republican PAC, which described its mission as re-branding and re-inventing the Republican Party to help Donald Trump’s agenda, as well as appealing to young and Hispanic voters.
