Perdue's behavior

Reading press coverage of Sen. Perdue's hiding in the bathroom instead of listening to women trying to express concerns to him.

I was GA voter and member here for years before I moved to Florida. Hope you all have better luck with this year's election to give some balance in the Senate to his cowardly self.

Bradenton Confederate Monument update

checked this today(I live in Venice). Also posted the original statement here as a reply in TheFerett weekly wonderful remarks:

Trump has not commented ...
...yet
.i saw press coverage of Bradenton cops handling pro and con protestor to remove confederate statue at courthouse. Spending most of my life in Georgia and every informed on most Waaah shit, I was surprised I was unaware of this. Although seceded with the rest of the South, the soldiers pretty much kept control of Florida need and crops helping to feed the fighting army. Also tried to help shut down northern blockade of ports.

I wanted to learn what the monument memorialized. A statue put )up by USC in 1924 to commemorate the confederate soldiers. Also has names of Lee and Jackson.

I am posting this in Florida group but just thought it was fun enough to share with your fabulous writings!

Tampa pro sports team actions

For those not,aware, the three Tampa pro sports teams, baseball, football and hockey contributed the money to take down confederate statues at Hillsborough County courthouse.

Request to remove was approved but had to be funded privately not by county. Our pro sports teams do some AWESOME things. Thank you!

Nazis - Terrorists

just reading a variety of items about the current Charlottesville conflict with hidden agendas surfacing all around to justify it. I found this quote from Nazi Germany:

Joseph Goebbels 😲
“There was no point in seeking to convert the intellectuals. For intellectuals would never be converted and would anyway always yield to the stronger, and this will always be "the man in the street." Arguments must therefore be crude, clear and forcible, and appeal to emotions and instincts, not the intellect. Truth was unimportant and entirely subordinate to tactics and psychology.”

– Joseph Goebbels, Reich Minister or Propaganda Nazi Germany , 1933-1945

This is exactly what we will always see in this behavior. Let us not fail to be aware of this.

finally I can post! Need help with Florida general election ballot.

I joined DU about 10 years ago and it wonderful. I lived in Georgia and enjoyed the state level as well as national communication on political issues.

Been gone about 4 years as I moved from Georgia to Florida and changed voting and residency to Florida. (Side note: I went to college in Florida MANY years ago when I was a proud Young Republican and before the party went nuts and went down the road with Reagan, only to get worse since then). At present I am in Sarasota and the Republican party has a pretty powerful majority in this area. I see very few national candidate signs - a few Trump and Clinton - but that is it. Most signs are for local candidates which is encouraging to me that these people at least care about local races.

I need help with Florida issues. Right now, the most confusing one is Constitutional Amendment #1 which is about solar power and the media coverage has me so confused I don't have a clue whether the amendment that is on the ballot is good or bad. Any advise is welcome!

Look forward to being and staying active. I am going to put this same info in the Florida section and hope to get help with some answers. Thanks.

WARNINGS! BE CAREFUL ABOUT VOTING PROBLEMS

I live in Florida, already have sent for absentee ballot. I used to live in Georgia.

there are four states (Georgia, Florida, South Carolina, North Carolina) that are in the path of Hurricane Matthew. Depending on the levels of damage and confusion therein, there is SERIOUS OPPORTUNITY FOR VOTER MANIPULATION AND FRAUD IN THOSE LOCATIONS.

It would be my perspective such fraud would likely benefit Trump and the Republican mess.

Please make sure that if you can't get absentee or accurate polling location information after this event in this coming week, put some people to work on the problem from all the Democratic get out the vote people AND

RAISE HOLY HELL IF YOU ARE AFFECTED BY ANY TYPE OF FRAUD.


PS - I was on DU for years but was away long enough I have to re-set my ability to post myself. I am still limited to replying to other posts. Anyone who sees this and can post themselves, PLEASE post this as an original post to get this message widely read. Thanks.
