This Week’s Lie from the President
-I was personally offended by the President the other day. He thinks I’m an idiot. He thinks most Americans are idiots. He is of the attitude that when he says something it automatically becomes true and automatically becomes the law of the land. Unfortunately for the President the patience of most Americans is wearing quite thin.
Years after declaring, “If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor,” and telling Americans how his signature law will bend the cost of health insurance down the President is spouting yet another set of lies. (more…)
Friday is the day in Washington, DC when things come out that people don’t want to answer questions about. They hope that by Monday all will be forgotten and the American public will be on to something new. It’s like the suburban game of ‘Ring and Run’, when adolescents ring a doorbell and run away before anyone comes to answer.

The teachers are excited to work there, the students are excited about learning, and the parents are excited there is finally some school choice for high school. (more…)

The other shoe dropped on the residents of St Lucie County. After seeing that Port St Lucie City Hall was not burned down to the ground on the news of an 18% tax hike the County figured it was okay to announce their own tax increase.
The County has been dipping into reserves for the past few years to cover the budget deficit. Those from the County will tell that they’ve been cutting government to the bone. To the bone I tell you.
