Tribune endorsement: David Jolly
for U.S. House District 13

Tampa Tribune, by Editorial

Original Article

Posted By:Hazymac, 2/9/2014 3:47:49 PM

Voters should ignore the distortions and name calling in the negative TV advertising for the District 13 congressional race and instead focus on which candidate is better prepared to represent constituents. (Snip) Both candidates are smart and capable, but we give the nod to Jolly because of his experience working with Young and his more conservative views. We also worry about a complete loss of legislative balance if enough Democrats are elected in this fall’s midterm election to have a majority in the House, leaving a single party to control the Senate, the House and the White House. District 13

Comments:
Carpetbagger from across Tampa Bay, Alex Sink, would be, if elected, a rubber stamp for Nancy Pelosi, a vote for accelerating the Nation into the socialist netherworld Obama seems intent on miring us in. The 13th District election is going to be a bellwether. This purple to blue county could go either way.

Beware the green decoys
wearing sportsmen’s camo
Tampa Tribune, by Will Coggin    Original Article
Posted By: Hazymac- 2/9/2014 3:40:13 PM     Post Reply
In nature, camouflage is often a defensive strategy. It allows prey to escape detection. But in politics, camouflage can be used by the predators just as well. And it appears many traditionally left-leaning foundations have now found their own camouflage among a traditionally right-leaning community: sportsmen’s groups. Many of these organizations started out furthering an agenda that ensured hunters and anglers could continue their favorite pastime for generations to come. But more recently, many of these groups have been co-opted by wealthy grant-making bodies notorious for their support of anti-gun, radical environmentalist agendas, all the while purporting to represent the

Bethany Mandel of PJMedia cites a New York Times article to argue that “women prefer manly men” by inferring from the frequent use in the NYT of the word “submission” some sort of innate desire for a masterful quality. (Snip) You can make the half-serious argument that in order to be a winner in today’s world it pays to be a loser. After all, you get subsidies. You get sympathy. You can play the victim card. Above all you get the girl. This inversion has been achieved by the counterintuitive method of degrading women. One website that endeavors to explain

In late January, 2014 four former US ambassadors to the Ukraine penned an open letter in the New York Times. In it they asked the leaders of the West to stop Ukrainian president Yanukovych while restraining immoderate actions from the opposition. (Snip) All on the back pages, yet taken together one can adventure the thought that a comprehensive failure has overtaken the foreign policy of Barack Obama. The irony is that Obama campaigned on the platform of “smart diplomacy”. But as things have turned out he was smart only in his own mind. Under his watch the 70 year old

Possible record-setting python

MIAMI-DADE COUNTY – A giant python that was found and killed Tuesday may be the largest python ever caught in the state of Florida. The man who killed the python, Bobby Hill, was on a levee 5 miles north of Tamiami Trail just west of Krome Avenue when he came across the 18-foot, 2-inch snake on the levee. Hill, who gets rid of the pythons for a living, shot and killed the massive snake. The body is now on its way to the University of Florida to be studied, which is where a lot of the pythons caught and killed

The companion piece to Spengler’s article on the bone-tiredness of the US economy is SFGate’s upbeat story on “funemployment”. While Spengler worries that the US economy is losing steam, SFGate says: don’t worry, be happy. (Snip) But maybe the problem with the modern world is that we’ve become too reliant on words; too dependent on spin. We’ve defined war, al-Qaeda and even unemployment out of existence. And we’ve redefined UKIP and Japan into modern day Hitlers. Therefore the problem is solved. Is it really? The description formerly applied to those who had lost contact with reality was “mad”.

The exhausted US economy,
and a lesson for Republicans

When employment hit an air pocket in December, most analysts brushed off the dreadful jobs number as an anomaly, or a function of the weather. They chose to believe Ben Bernanke rather than their lying eyes. (Snip) The Fed has insisted throughout that the treatment was working and the patient was getting better. Americans know better: in late January, 74% of respondents to a Fox News poll said the country still was in recession. Republicans have a once-in-a-generation opportunity to roar back to power given the miserable performance of the economy on Obama’s watch. But they still could fall on

The first quarter of 2014 is shaping up like this: the Obama administration is going entirely on the defensive. Its domestic goal will be to stave off the emerging counterproposals to Obamacare, which is clearly in trouble. Internationally the administration will try to save its Iran nuclear nonproliferation deal, together with its linked handmaiden, the Syria policy. (Snip) The administration is finally coming to the realization that the glory days of “fundamentally transforming America”, of rolling victoriously across the steppe runnng down Republicans in its path are over. The consequences of its errors are now hemming it in on every

When I was first elected, one of the first lobbyists to darken my door was a highly paid man who was lobbying for “highway safety” in Florida. He said he was representing a nonprofit group concerned that the recent conversion of highway signs to metric was a safety hazard as people took their focus off the highway to figure out how far 50 kilometers was. I was curious and did a little research. It seems this group was heavily funded by the company that sold the reflective paint for the highway signs. No wonder they were suddenly concerned with safety.

Pete Seeger: A Mean-Spirited

I first heard Pete Seeger perform when I was five or six, when I was a red-diaper baby and he was blacklisted and drunk. What I recall most about the encounter was that the tip of his needle-nose glowed bright red. He was performing for a children’s group of some sort at a time when his Communist background kept him out of public venues. His records — not just the Weavers albums, but the early Asch 78´s of the Almanac Singers — were daily fare in my home, along with Woody Guthrie’s children’s songs. My parents knew Guthrie casually; my

Max Boot notices that although “President Obama’s State of the Union included the following pledge: ‘Here at home, we’ll keep strengthening our defenses and combat new threats like cyberattacks.

Medical marijuana ballot called
´plan´ to help Crist beat Scott
Tampa Tribune, by William March    Original Article
Posted By: Hazymac- 1/24/2014 1:19:00 PM     Post Reply
TAMPA ­­— Some Florida Republicans fear, and some Democrats hope, that a November referendum on legalizing medical marijuana in Florida will drive young and liberal voters to the polls, helping Democratic candidates including gubernatorial challenger Charlie Crist. The initiative, still not certified for the November ballot, is generating charges of political motives from both sides. Some Republicans call it an expensive ploy by Crist´s backers to help him win. “It is no coincidence that Charlie Crist´s law partner and biggest supporter, John Morgan, is financing medical marijuana,” said Gainesville-based GOP consultant Alex Patton. “It´s a plan.” Some Democrats, meanwhile, say

President Barack Obama went one-on-one with NBC Sports anchor Bob Costas in an interview before the Winter Olympics opening ceremony aired for the primetime audience in the U.S. Obama — a tired-looking Obama, we should add — talked to Costas from the White House, not from Sochi (the interview was recorded Thursday). Costas addressed that in his first question to the president. Why didn´t he attend the Olympics? And why didn´t the vice president, the first lady or any other high-ranking members of the president´s cabinet? Obama´s response: Unfortunately, I haven´t had a chance to go to the Olympics since

It is one of the most common - albeit, ineptly used - elements of the English language. Now, an American academic has suggested that the comma could be abolished as a punctuation mark. Professor John McWhorter claims removing commas from most modern U.S. texts would cause ´little loss of clarity´ - meaning they may now be in a state of obsolescence. He adds that internet users are becoming increasingly carefree in their use of the punctuation mark - with some professional writers following suit, according to The Times. ´[You] could take them out of a great deal of modern American

TWENTY-ONE years ago, when I first heard Mia Farrow had accused me of child molestation, I found the idea so ludicrous I didn’t give it a second thought. We were involved in a terribly acrimonious breakup, with great enmity between us and a custody battle slowly gathering energy. The self-serving transparency of her malevolence seemed so obvious I didn’t even hire a lawyer to defend myself. It was my show business attorney who told me she was bringing the accusation to the police and I would need a criminal lawyer. I naïvely thought the accusation would be dismissed out of hand because of course, I hadn’t molested Dylan

Appearing on MSNBC, former Secretary of State Colin Powell savaged the Republican Party of which he says he is still a member for catering to “elements” that are overtly hostile to people of other races or nationalities. Powell told MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell that there are groups within the GOP who “demonize people who don’t look like the way they’d like them to look.” He added that, for this reason, he believes the GOP needs him more than the Democratic Party needs him. Speaking with Mitchell about the need for immigration reform, Powell said that reforming the system was critical. “We are

Cornyn for the GOP nomination

SAN ANTONIO — We recommend incumbent John Cornyn for the GOP´s U.S. Senate nomination, based on unmatched experience and decades of service to Texas. The theme among a bevy of challengers seems to be that Cornyn is a CINO, a conservative in name only. This is not just counter-intuitive but counter-factual. Various ratings — liberal and conservative — have agreed on one thing, Cornyn´s conservative credentials are genuine. Not conservative? Cornyn is No. 2 in Senate leadership and diverged only slightly from the conservative playbook in a year in which he offered a measure that would further beef up security at the

Number of Obamacare

Democrats from President Obama on down have been touting Obamacare´s sign-up numbers. Even after the system´s disastrous rollout, they like to point out, roughly three million people have signed up for private insurance, while 6.3 million have signed up for Medicaid. "Already, because of the Affordable Care Act, more than nine million Americans have signed up for private health insurance or Medicaid coverage," Obama said in the State of the Union speech. "Nine million." (Snip) But there is strong new evidence to suggest the administration's claims are grossly exaggerated and deeply misleading. Obamacare is not doing nearly as well as the

Geraldo Rivera took on Bill O’Reilly Friday night over whether O’Reilly was disrespectful to President Obama in their big Super Bowl interview. Rivera gave O’Reilly some benefit of the doubt, but other than that thought O’Reilly was a bit too confrontational and didn’t give Obama the kind of respect a president normally deserves. Rivera argued it was less like an interview and more like a meeting of the minds with the “President of Most of the White Guys of America” (O’Reilly) against the president of the rest of the country, and told O’Reilly that it was out of line for him

Count Polly Lower among those who quit their jobs because of the health-care law. It happened in September, when her boss abruptly changed her job description. She went from doing payroll, which she liked, to working on her boss’s schedule, which she loathed. At another time, she might have had to grit her teeth and accept the new position because she needed the health benefits. But with the health-care law soon to take effect, she simply resigned — and hasn’t looked back. “It was wonderful. It was very freeing,” said Lower, 56, of Bourbon, Ind., who is now babysitting her

It was one of the most coveted gifts of the festive period and turned up under thousands of Christmas trees last year. But now parents have hit out at popular must-have toy the Furby Boom after it emerged that some of the creatures have developed “inappropriate” second personalities which have upset their children. The Furby, an electronic robotic toy which requires children to talk to and stroke it, as well as feed and put it to sleep, was a major hit when makers Hasbro relaunched the 1990s classic last year. The cute creation made it into the toy hit lists

Guess bloviating Bill never takes the time to tune in to radio talk show hosts where John Boehner has been persona non grata for some time. Boehner finds no comfortable quarters from radio talk show giants Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity or Mark Levin, who continue to castigate the guy who’s a dead ringer for the cowardly lion in the Wizard of

The former Russian figure skater that lit the Olympic flame during the Sochi opening ceremony has deleted a racist photo of President and Mrs Obama that she had previously posted. Irina Rodnina is a triple Olympic champion figure skater and is close with Russian President Vladimir Putin so it came as little surprise that she was chosen to be one of the two athletes to have the key role in the opening ceremony. A scouring of her Twitter account by The Guardian found that she had posted a photo of Mr and Mrs Obama looking at someone who was holding
