Most of Florida Supreme Court Justices Are Millionaires

Most of Florida's Supreme Court justices boast net worths of over $1 million, according to recent financial disclosures. Public officials are required by Florida law to report full financial disclosures each fiscal year to the Florida Commission on Ethics. Total net worths include “household goods and personal effects” like art and vehicles.

All through the Cold War, the Turks were among America's most reliable allies. 
Ron DeSantis and John Boehner
The latest conservative effort to boot John Boehner as speaker of the House could impact a Republican congressman running for the Senate in Florida. 
The Florida Senate violates the Constitution, lies about it, then admits what it did ... but don't worry, we'll call another special session and fix it ... I don't care which party is in the majority -- even my own, as it happens -- the Senate has acted reprehensibly and, more important, illegally.
Forty-seven years ago, the musical "Hair" opened on Broadway. Elderly mavens -- the core theater audience then, unlike the throngs of tourists flocking to cheap movie adaptations today -- were instructed that America was entering an "Age of Aquarius." The old moral rules were extinct: we were entering a new era of freedom, experimentation and self-expression. 
Welcome to The Dean's List -- an Ed Dean-style look at who Florida's political achievers were (and weren't) in the last seven days.
Can you imagine what fear a trip to a state park struck in a physically disabled person in Florida 25 years ago? 
People who entered the United States illegally may be called "undocumented" in politically correct circles, but what is all too well documented is the utter irresponsibility of both political parties in dealing with immigration issues.
Many years ago, policymakers were concerned with managing a scarcity of energy resources following the energy crisis of the Carter administration.
Current quibbling over what Jeb Bush meant when he said it's time to phase out and replace Medicare -- as opposed to "attacking the seniors," as one woman at a recent event bellowed out -- will soon seem quaint against the realities of our future.
The end of the Supreme Court term was depressing for conservatives. The double-whammy of a 50-state mandate for gay marriage and the upholding of Obamacare sounded the alarms for religious freedom. All that unease is measurable.
