Mother Nature recently woke up on the wrong side of her bed. She didn’t realize that there would be loss of life, homes, prize possessions, devastation to many areas of Florida.

The very young don’t remember that we have been through this before, all the adults remember it all too well.

We mourn our loved ones and regain our strength and move on, Florida will rebuild.

Slowly the lights are on, thanks to the electric company and all the companies from other states that have come to help.

A free and just government cannot make and enforce enough laws to insure a high functioning and safe environment for its citizens. A viciously intimidating dictatorship or a sophisticated psychological “thought control regime” can create stability at the expense of freedom and innovation. These repressive societies gradually degenerate into police states using more physically and psychologically abusive methods of control.

Violent cities (measured in aggravated assaults)

Cities with a high number of residents on welfare”

By Governor Rick Scott

Just one day following the conclusion of the shameful Constituent Assembly aimed to empower Nicolas Maduro’s regime, the dictator and his gang of thugs have struck again. This time, during a cowardly overnight raid to seize two members of the opposition party, Leopoldo Lopez and Antonio Ledezma.

The world saw the devastating images from Venezuela over the weekend. Maduro’s continued brutalization of the Venezuelan people with violence and a total lack of democracy is atrocious.

Wildlife corridors: Where do they really lead?

Since wildlife corridors aren’t proven to work as intended, and may even harm wildlife, what is the true purpose? Wildlife corridor theory and reserves, are a part of the “Wildlands Project of America” (also global initiatives). In making a long story short, the United Nations sponsors many groups and actions to implement their Agenda for the Twenty-first Century. The IUCN (International Union for Conservation of Nature) was formed in 1946 as the primary scientific advisor to the United Nations on environmental issues.

If I were king for a day...

If I were king for a day...

My focus would be to help the people of my hometown. First, I would hold a town meeting to find out what was important to the people. Whether it was building new roads or buildings and stores. I’d show them how to lookout for each other-see a need fill a need, by starting funds for the homeless or the sick-important things like that.

People look up to kings. And even though I would only be one for a day, I’d like to show everyone what one person can do, whether you’re a king or not.
