How many members of Congress are willing to shout "you lie" when tRump speaks to them?

Assuming that he makes it to a State of the Union speech, it may be an epic opportunity.

If I were a member of Congress, I doubt I could help myself from keeping my mouth shut.

So typical down here...profile stop


Aramis Ayala, Florida's first African-American elected state attorney, has been no stranger to racially charged insults, especially after she declared in March that she's not pursuing the death penalty for violent felony cases. For instance, in April, she received a noose in the mail.

But now footage has emerged where two white police officers are having a tough time explaining why they pulled over Ayala, the Orlando-area prosecutor on June 19 at about 8:15 p.m.
They do this in the South all the time. I was working as a teacher, and went to a school basketball game. There was a family emergency, and I had to drive one of the players home (he was black). I got pulled over near the school and the officer literally asked me why there was a black kid in my car!

I explained I was a teacher and showed him my school ID, and I was taking the student home. He said I didn't do anything wrong so I was free to go.

That was years ago, but it hasn't changed much. They pulled over Ayala because she was black.

Bar fight at 20,000 ft? Don't they screen people in 1st class any more?


Fists, bottles flew after man tried to open door on Seattle-Beijing flight, charges say

SEATTLE A 23-year-old Florida man on a Thursday flight from Seattle to Beijing tried to open an exit door on the airborne Boeing 767, sparking a wild brawl with flight attendants and passengers who used wine bottles and zip ties to subdue the combative man, according to a federal complaint.

Meanwhile, Hudek allegedly punched one of the attendants twice in the face, hit a male passenger in the head with a red dessert-wine bottle and punched him several times.

A flight attendant grabbed two wine bottles and hit Hudek with both, breaking one over his head

I think this is interesting, and it's here in Florida of course...

....some of our craziest RW "friends" have moved to the Villages. We've visited once, and even though there are pockets of resistance I didn't like it at all. At any rate, if you don't know, the Villages is a very conservative haven for upper crust retirees with the houses, stores, and entertainment of an entire town built from scratch. I'll throw in some links of tRump at the Villages. Many residents don't drive (cars), and they get around the town on golf carts. Some of the carts are pretty high end too.


THE VILLAGES, Fla. -- Five people have been arrested after a police raid of a home in a central Florida retirement community uncovered drugs and golf cart parts, according to the Sumter County Sheriff's Office.

Deputies raided the home early Wednesday after receiving reports of suspicious activity, including possible drug use and golf cart thefts, at the home located in The Villages, a sprawling senior community with a population of more than 150,000. A SWAT team executed a search warrant obtained after a confidential informant helped orchestrate three drug buys there, reports the Village News.

Drugs were in "plain sight" in the home, deputies said, and investigators uncovered golf cart parts including windshields, seat cushions, wheels and tires in the garage in attic, reports CBS affiliate WKMG. Brannen told the Village News the property may have been used as a golf cart chop-shop.

Golf carts -- many souped-up and customized -- are a popular method of transportation around the massive community known for its golf courses, CBS News' David Begnaud reported in 2015.
