    So it was your goal to get your *** kicked by chubby to the point you had to start calling names? If so, nice work.

    Ha Ha Ha - so no actual examples. I have discovered that all you really have to do to throw a fake conservative for a loop is ask for proof - they never have any.

    Fake conservatives are more disgusting than whacked out lefties to me now - at least the lefties actually believe their BS.

    Liberalism always needs an enemy to liberate from.

    So your expertise is bringing closet gays out?

    Anyone get their RS rebate check in the mail yet?

    After all, “It was never government’s money. It’s your money.”

    You have never met anyone you supported pedophilia, have you?

    Why do you feel the need to lie on a fishing forum?

    As is the case with many blinded with their biases, perhaps you are looking for it in the wrong place. The following is one proposed legislative reduction relative to your quote:

    Today, Governor Rick Scott applauded the Florida Senate for unanimously passing SB 156, which cuts taxes by nearly $400 million by rolling back fees on motor vehicle registrations.

    I'm very disappointed in FL for these two terrible candidates. I will vote for whoever is the independent or libertarian candidate.

    Medical MJ is on the same ballot, and they will turn out for that.

    Scott is missing an opportunity by not leading the charge for MM. I normally don't vote for amendments, bad mojo.
    I did vote Yes for the net ban though. I'll be voting yes again for this one but not for the pole smoker. That has to pain libs. :wink

    That could be true; however, in my humble opinion, the worst thing a candidate can do is to show support for something his/her heart does not agree with. It will routinely come back and bite him/her.

    Explosive email!

    Fernandez’s most explosive accusation remains in dispute, with the campaign saying it never happened. In his Feb. 20 email, Fernandez said a business partner, identified only as Luis, heard a Scott campaign staff member “mimicking a Mexican accent.”

    Pissing off a billionaire campaign donor is rarely a good idea, worse if he's Hispanic and you have a racist campaign staff.

    I wonder why Scott avoids the issue, particularly about a guy that raised a $1M for him.

    Especially when the evidence that his campaign staff is racist, is so overwhelming.

    Because he knows that regardless of how he responds, there will be no objective analysis of it's truthfulness. Similar to here on this forum.

    He can't cut a penny, that is the job of the legislator.

    I'll ask AGAIN, "We’re going give you back that 54 percent increase you saw in 2009"

    How am I getting back the 54% increase I paid over 5 years (my money) back? Lowering my fees does not replenish what was paid out. Are you bias to math?

    BTW this was not his idea as well, it was Joe Negon's and Scott never said a word about his plan up until it dies in the Senate.

    But already, Senate Appropriations Chair Joe Negron, R-Stuart, has staked a claim, once again, to reduce vehicle registration fee increases that lawmakers approved in 2009 by $230 million.

    Negron pushed for the same this year only to see the bill die

    They cut $400 million after raising $2.2 BILLION and you are giddy of a potential 1.2 billion surplus? Where's the rest that I am suppose to be "getting back" ??????????

    Then you explain it because you interjected this point on your own, and not from my post.

    "...By a vote of 40-0, the Florida state Senate passed S.B. 156, a $395 million tax cut which repealed a car tax increase signed into law by former Governor Charlie Crist in 2009. This was a top legislative priority for Republican Governor Rick Scott, who has made cutting taxes the focus of this year's legislative session. Democrat Charlie Crist's 54 percent increase in automobile registration fees raised the cost of annual vehicle registration from $46 to $71 back in 2009. In undoing this tax hike, Republicans will save Sunshine State motorists an average of $25 per vehicle per year.

    Upon passage of the Senate bill, Governor Scott had this to say:

    'This tax cut will let families keep nearly $400 million of their hard-earned money in their own pockets. It's critical to our "It's Your Money Tax Cut Budget," which cuts taxes, pays down the debt, and cuts government waste. Today's vote is great news, and we'll continue working with the Legislature to let families keep more of their hard-earned dollars.'

    Lawmakers who had set a goal of more than $500 million in tax cuts this year got even more welcome news recently when state economists predicted that Florida would take in about $150 million more over the next 16 months than current estimates called for. Republican House Speaker Will Weatherford immediately declared what would be done with most of that money: "Obviously...tax cuts" He is pictured on the right, thinking about which taxes will be cut next.

    Under Governor Scott's leadership and Republican control of the legislature, the state has gone from an inherited $3.6 billion deficit to more than a billion dollar surplus without higher taxes. The state's astounding economic growth has happened as a direct result of rolling back high taxes and sustained fiscal restraint, leading to massive new investments in the state by businesses and an influx new taxpayers from high tax states like New York and Illinois..."

    Just for those mathematically challenged: 71 - 46 = 25, divided by 46 = .5434782

    As previously stated, a politician actually striving to do what he/she promised to do. How shocking.

    A lot of people have opinions; such as this one about Politifact.

    “…The newspapers around the country that signed on with PolitiFact when it seemed like such a good idea ought to pull their support now. They can fact check the right way on their own if they want.

    If they care about their own credibility, they need to part ways with PolitiFact, which refuses to abide by a basic principle of journalism: acknowledging and correcting one’s errors.

    PolitiFact was stubborn enough when it was run by Bill Adair. Since Angie Drobnic Holan took over, it has become apparent that PolitiFact acknowledges no reality but its own. This is a woman who once said that it was “cherry-picking” for others to cite the total cost of Obamacare…”

    It's hard to believe anyone would defend Scott. I don't really care who the next governor is, it has no effect on me except occasionally it's embarrassing when I live in a state with a corporate criminal and carpet bagger as governor.

    It will be interesting to witness Crist on guns. Former NRA endorsed while GOP (carefully posing with Remington 870....never an AR....).

    Might be a good thing for Democrats and the state in general. Deal more effectively with the gun thing and we might even manage to put a conservationist or two back in office. Gun owning and user conservationists.

    I am not sure defending is the appropriate terminology. Someone else started a thread about Scott & I posted information about his success & that of other Republican Governors. Since then, several have gone out of the way to discredit him. I am just trying to separate the facts from the opinions.

    Interesting point. I won't speak to guns which is a non issue to all but the paranoid ,:hairraiser but conservation is a key discriminator between the two candidates.

    Crist was the AG who worked with us on the net ban and earned the respect of the recreational fishing community. In time that eroded to indifference to our being bludgeoned by federal fisheries mangers. He also moved more to the preservationist side with his diverting of funding for the northern everglades initiative, to placating anti-ag preservationists in purchasing unusable farmland for a mythic Plan 6 flow way, setting back stormwater protection for the St. Lucie and Caloosahatchee estuaries by a decade.

    This governor and this legislature put those projects back on track . Charlie unfortunately cannot play to both sides and he trammeled himself by doing so.
