The Florida Keys: How Did We Come to Destroy So Much of Paradise?

July 22, 2015 - 8:00pm

The Florida Keys. Even if you live in this magical paradise, when you hear those words it is hard not to think about margaritas, shocking sunsets and Jimmy Buffett crooning on a bar stool. As the Tourist Development Council would say, “close to perfect, far from normal.” It seems to describe us pretty well.

Jeb's Florida Experience Instills Confidence He Can Pull off His 'Reform D.C.' Plan

July 20, 2015 - 3:30pm

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush returned to Tallahassee this morning, site of his greatest accomplishments during eight years in office.

Proclaiming “voters want to know what we believe in, but also what we’ve accomplished,” he went through a litany of his policies that made Florida a better place to live, work and play.  

He cut governmental bureaucracy by more than 10 percent, he tackled the systemic problems of child welfare by creating the cutting-edge Community Based Care system, and he vetoed more than 2,500 budget items, thus earning him the nickname “Veto Corleone.”  

Supreme Court Murders Rule of Law

July 8, 2015 - 7:15am

Morality is always higher than law. Any sincere system of law, beginning with the Ten Commandments, is the human attempt to express morality in language. Law is itself higher than whim.
When law expresses “malus in se” it expresses that an offense against that law is “evil in itself” as determined by human experience. “Malus in se” laws include those against murder, robbery, bearing false witness, adultery, child abuse, and so forth. “Malus in se” is distinguished from “malus prohibitus.”

POINT: Supreme Court Ruling Devastating, but This Isn't Over

June 26, 2015 - 11:30pm

This sad day in history will forever reflect that the highest court of our land ignored the rule of law and the will of 51 million people in over 38 states in an illegitimate act of raw judicial power and arrogance.

Natural Disaster Recovery: Prevention is Key

June 18, 2015 - 12:15pm

The extra trips to the hardware store for plywood and nails to board up windows.‭ ‬The stocked pantries and cupboards with canned goods and water bottles.‭ ‬The spare batteries and flashlights stashed around the house.‭ ‬The safety drills to take shelter in hallways and bathtubs.‭ ‬These are all-too-familiar precautions we Floridians practice when hurricane season rolls around.‭ ‬Because,‭ ‬it is all about prevention.‭ 

Florida Needs Seismic Testing to Assess Offshore Energy Possibilities

June 10, 2015 - 5:00pm

In recent weeks, Florida has created quite a bit of political news as it relates to energy production, with members of Congress filing legislation both to encourage and discourage Florida as a contributor to our nation’s energy portfolio through offshore energy production.

Understandably, politicians are protective of our beautiful beaches to where tourists flock from around the world, and the great military presence in our state where men and women train to protect our country. Everyone will agree these are important priorities and economic drivers that should be protected.

Energy Production Should Be an Election 2016 Issue

June 1, 2015 - 8:30pm

It seems like just yesterday we recovered from the deluge of political ads to hit the airwaves and our mailboxes. If you have paid attention to the news, you know that the cycle never really stops and it will soon be back in our faces with presidential and congressional seats open in 2016.
