By now, some of you have probably heard that I have resigned as Chairman of the Libertarian Party of Florida. I feel I owe many of you the courtesy of an explanation for my decision.
At least 18 Florida lawmakers started living on minimum wage this week to draw attention to the need to increase the state's minimum wage to $15 an hour.
It's all part of something called the "minimum wage challenge," a campaign by the Service Employees International.
These 18 lawmakers, all Democrats, will live on $17 a day for five days.
Or will they?
U.S. Rep. Dennis Ross, R-Fla., part of the congressional leadership as senior deputy majority whip, announced Friday he will run to become majority whip now that current U.S. House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, R-La., is looking to become House majority leader.
In recognition of the 75th anniversary of Naval Air Station Jacksonville (NAS Jax), U.S. Rep. Ander Crenshaw, R-Fla., who sits on the U.S. House Defense Appropriations Subcommittee, included the following in the Congressional Record on Tuesday:
Civility and calls for civil discourse have long been talking points for the Democrats. Their hypocrisy, however, has been pronounced.

Debbie needs to go. President Obama should have replaced her already as DNC chair, but since he hasn’t, it's up to the Jewish community and the African-American community to get the job done.

That message is: We put you in, and we can take you out.
It has come to my attention that some cities have been expressing concern in reference to SB 896/HB "Road391, utility relocation legislation of the 2015 session, and its potential impact on our local governments. The bill is likely to return again in 2016.
Over the last several months we’ve heard the continuing refrain from Hillary Clinton and her campaign that she has “never received or sent any classified emails.”
And the mainstream press continues to recite that chorus as if that’s the operative question surrounding the bizarre case of Hillary having used a personal email account while she was secretary of state.
The fact that Donald Trump is currently leading in national polls in the Republican race for president is interesting -- but hardly a predictor of the outcome of the election. In fact, based on the recent history of presidential elections, it is not likely Trump will be the Republican nominee.
Those of us who make it a point to stay up-to-date on foreign affairs took great interest in last month’s Iran deal aimed at stopping the volatile country from developing nuclear weapons.
