Are the Senate Repugs are setting the stage for a 9/11 rescue next year…

And what I saw sickened me.  In the 111th Congress,
the Senate Republicans are still filibustering over the James
Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Act. After their continued use
of 9/11 in the past nine years, I am sickened at the acts of the
Senate Republicans and their insane delays. And then to note that
none of the major news outlets even set any time to this particular
outrage. Continue reading

Cynthia Thomas / David Kout for Broward Soil & Water Conservation District

Who would I choose for Broward Soil and Water District Seat 2? Truthfully, both candidates have strengths. I happen to like Ms. Thomas because when speaking with her, she was the most up-to-date on the issues at hand. Mr. Kout seemed to me to be an activist ready to help contribute to a cause, but not yet bought into it. While that may sound harsh, I know of where he speaks – and understand that involvement often happens when called to action. From his experiences, it seems like he could be an excellent contributor to the District and help them accomplish the goals of the BSWCD to our county’s betterment.

As I mention in another post – I think Dr. Snipes should appoint the loser to the BSWCD simply due to their interest in being involved, rather than having some political appointee taking the role for political benefit. Sadly, there will only be four members, and not five as should be meeting. Continue reading

Thoughts on Alex Sink for Florida Governor

Today, with her candidacy on the ascendancy in Florida, I think there is a true opportunity to have a business-minded person in the Governors seat. I am sorry – but Congressman Meeks is a solid politician, but when it comes to “CEO-like” experience, I have to go with Mrs. Sink who has demonstrated solid management experience both in the public and private sector.

I know I will be voting for Mrs. Sink in the Fall. Continue reading
