“I am not a scientist”

It is almost November 4th and I will stop write about them, when they stop telling me lies!

When will, if ever, this country wake up to the lying politicians running you, the public, around in circle while grabbing at your wallet?

Is it still so hard to say to your constituents that,

“Thank God we have Scientist!”

Because they are proving that you are still making a fool out of yourself

and the republican party as a whole, public and all!

“I don’t know the science behind climate change?”.

“I can’t say one way or another what is the direct impact from whether it’s man-made or not?”

“I drive a hybrid car, and my family recycles everything.”

GOP candidates treading gingerly on climate change

Republicans in competitive races are treading gingerly around climate change this campaign season, often saying they are not in a good position to make a judgment on the issue, then pivoting quickly to express concern for the environment, the economy or both.

“I am not a scientist,”

Senate Republican Leader Mitch Mc-Connell of Kentucky has said numerous times, a response that other members of his party have employed when asked if human activity is causing the earth to warm.

Former Rep. Frank Guinta of New Hampshire, running to reclaim a House seat he once held, says, “I think the science is not complete on this issue.” Senate hopeful Joni Ernst of Iowa, said recently, “I don’t know the science behind climate change. … I can’t say one way or another what is the direct impact from whether it’s man-made or not.” She prefaced her comments by saying she believes in protecting the environment, offering as evidence, “I drive a hybrid car, and my family recycles everything.”

Polls routinely find that climate change is far down the list of voter concerns, particularly in an era of slow economic growth.

Yet the issue has come up persistently in the fall campaign, including in debates and interviews as well as political commercials.

Surveys suggest there may be political safety for Republicans in straddling the issue, since doing otherwise could anger conservative GOP voters who deny climate change’s existence or offend the majority of the country that says it is an established fact.

“I don’t know the science behind climate change. … I can’t say one way or another what is the direct impact from whether it’s man-made or not.

I drive a hybrid car, and my family recycles everything.”

Hunter ‘Peters’ was leaving his dog food outside

If I believed this headline I might also fear the bears, except I know better!

Lady Lake man kills bear breaking into his home

Read on please.

This , 64-year-old hunter ‘Peters’ was leaving his dog food outside of the home, he was told to bring it inside, too late!

This hunter cracked the window from inside of his home and shot the bear that was outside of his house, Why?

Because he could!

The adult male bear was more than halfway back into the lanai when it encountered a ready Peters — armed with a hunting rifle.

A Lanai to a traitor

Wildlife officials believe a black bear might have been in search of food when it was shot to death during an apparent break-in of a Lady Lake home Wednesday night.

“It just kept coming at me, I was scared to death,” said homeowner Victor Peters, standing behind the giant hole in his lanai Friday.

A hunter with a hunting rifle was scared to death of a Black Bear?

RIGHT!!!!!!!!!!!

Lady Lake man kills bear breaking into his home

http://leesburgdailycommercial.fl.newsmemory.com/

The 400- to 500-pound bear initially ripped its way through metal windows in the screened-in lanai attached to the Bird Island Drive mobile home early Wednesday morning as Peters slept.

However, 64-year-old Peters initially thought he had been burglarized, according to his 911 call made Wednesday morning. Then he discovered the only thing missing was dog food and that his computer was still there.

Then he thought it was some type of animal. Apparently a “Beware Bad Dog” sign attached to the lanai hadn’t frightened the animal.

“I’m surprised he didn’t raise a fuss over the noise,” Peters can be heard saying in the morning 911 call.

Peters was then told to move the dog food inside the home.

But the animal came back about 8:30 p.m. — a black bear — apparently wanting to dine on the rest of a 35-pound dog food bag. The giant hole hadn’t been patched up.

The adult male bear was more than halfway back into the lanai when it encountered a ready Peters — armed with a hunting rifle.

“I cranked opened the window in the living room and yelled at it and it just kept coming at me showing teeth so I shot it,” said Peters in the 911 call made Wednesday night.

“I’ve seen a lot of black bears, I hunt and I’ve never seen one this big, but when I yelled at him he just looked like ‘Well I don’t care who you are,’ and just kept coming on so … ,” added Peters in a call recorded later Wednesday night to the Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation Commission.

Peters said he shot the bear in the head in the room and apparently a lot of neighbors took pictures of the bleeding carcass.

Greg Workman, a FWC spokesman, said it is illegal to kill black bears and the incident is under investigation. Peters has not been cited.

Workman added FWC retrieved the bear for evidence purposes until the case is closed and will conduct a necropsy on the carcass before donating it for scientific research.

Workman added determining why the bear came back is part of the investigation but at this time of the year black bears are trying to fatten up for the winter.

“They need to intake so much food,” he said.

Where’s the Manatees?

Remember the big rush two months ago for boaters rights against the poor helpless Mammals the(Manatees)?

That’s right my followers, Manatees are air breathing mammals and although they eat and play on the bottom, they must come up for air now and again,

‘Therein lies the rub’!

Boaters, boat manufactures and sellers of boats and equipment want to remove the speed restriction, not everywhere mind you, the restrictions are only at the mouth of rivers where our manatees eat, have babies and play!

While back tracking postings for my latest post I came across this interesting old one and there is one more before this if you wish to look?

No word on manatees life or death

Polling along party-lines

Associated Press-GfK poll

What is an Associated Press-GfK poll?

Is it a poll aimed towards people that the press favors?

Has the press talked to anyone who doesn’t make over 50k a year?

Are we now doing our polling about our president along party line?

It sure looks like it to me, you be the judge.

My opinion and this is only my opinion as shown in the following posting

3rd Debate, Big Deal

http://sachemspeaks.wordpress.com/2014/10/22/3rd-debate-big-deal/

There are more Republicans the Democrats in this country, plus many voters do not register with the debunked two parties however, many do answer polls, most do not like our president and, ‘for shame,’ it has little to do with his office!

Also, if we are polling CEOs of Big Business, of course they want us in wars, good for their pockets!

Sixty-five percent of Americans now say the threat from the Islamic State group is very or even extremely important, and nearly half think the U.S. military response in Iraq and Syria has not gone far enough, according to an Associated Press-GfK poll.

Most want to see America’s partners step up their contribution to the fight, Less than half, 43 percent, approve of the way President Barack Obama is handling the danger posed by the extremist militants.

Justice (integrity) for the victim

Wouldn’t you think that having anyone (only one person by the way) from Tallahassee, let alone an attorney from Tallahassee, ruling over a court case about a Star Quarterback in Tallahassee, be like

http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/ncaaf-dr-saturday/former-supreme-court-chief-justice-to-preside-over-jameis-winston-hearing-035940451.html

Harding began his career as a jurist in Florida with a 1968 appointment as a Duval County Juvenile Court judge.

When he was appointed to the state’s Supreme Court, he was the dean of the Florida Judicial College and chair-elect of the Florida Conference of Circuit Judges, according to his bio on the law firm’s website.

Retired Florida Supreme Court chief justice Major Harding who is currently a practicing attorney with the law firm Ausley McMullen in Tallahassee, has been selected to serve as the independent observer who will conduct Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston’s upcoming student conduct code hearing, a source close to the situation confirmed to ESPN.com on Thursday.

Winston, the reigning Heisman Trophy winner, faces as many as four student conduct code violations, including two related to sexual misconduct. The allegations stem from a December 2012 incident in which a former FSU student accused Winston of sexually assaulting her at his off-campus apartment in Tallahassee, Florida. The state attorney’s office in Tallahassee chose not to pursue criminal charges against Winston after an investigation last December.

Shameful Social Security benefits

Elderly United States of American citizens, millions are retired military to get a small hiccup in their Social Security benefits while known murders of millions of human beings are receiving $1,500 a month, and many, like Jakob Denzinger a former Auschwitz guard and one time Ohio businessman?

So only in America do you constantly get the shaft from people you are voting into office to protect you?

So, what political party is in control of our Congress?

Again, who are you voting for?

WHY?

Shameful Social Security benefits for expelled Nazis

Jakob Denzinger gets about $1,500 a month in Social Security payments, but the 90-yearold retiree isn’t a typical senior citizen.

He’s a former Auschwitz guard and onetime Ohio businessman who is now living comfortably overseas on U.S. Social Security benefits. His monthly check is nearly twice the take-home pay of an average worker in Croatia, where he lives. This for a man who patrolled one of the Nazi regime’s most infamous death camps. It is an outrageous affront; Congress should no longer tolerate it.

An Associated Press investigation published over the weekend found that the U.S. Justice Department secretly used the promise of continued retirement payments to persuade dozens of Nazi suspects in the U.S. to leave. If they agreed to go quietly, or fled before deportation, as Denzinger did in 1989, they could retain their benefits. In return, the Justice Department’s Office of Special Investigations avoided messy deportation hearings and increased the number of former Nazis it expelled.

Just how many Nazis cashed in isn’t known. However, it’s stomach-turning to know that Nazi war criminals are receiving retirement benefits, just like your father or grandfather who fought to end the Nazi reign of terror. No accountability. Just a quiet retirement with a steady stream of government checks for Hitler’s henchmen.

Americans deserve answers. The AP traces the program to 1979 and says at least 38 of 66 suspected Nazis removed from the country since then kept receiving their retirement benefits. By March 1999, the AP reports, 28 suspected Nazi criminals living overseas had amassed $1.5 million in Social Security benefits. That’s probably just the tip of the iceberg, but Social Security and Justice Department officials aren’t talking.

We acknowledge that there is scant appetite in Europe or the United States to bring these aging men to trial. However, neither is there good reason for the U.S. to continue subsidizing their golden years. The deaths of millions should never be forgotten or bought off. With anti-Semitism again on the rise in Europe, sweeping these cases under the rug is the wrong way to signal to the world that we will never forget Nazi atrocities.

Congress turned its back on previous measures to stop payments to keep from offending diplomatic sensibilities or slowing down the Justice Department’s expulsion efforts. It’s time for this insult to end. A White House spokesman says the president, rightly, wants the benefits stopped, and Rep. Carolyn Maloney, D-N.Y., has called for an inquiry into the actions of Justice Department and Social Security officials; she also plans to introduce legislation to halt the payments.

It is unconscionable to reward those accused of such horrific crimes. Congress should act now to strip them of their benefits.

$$$$$Millions against Amendment #2

 

Why would Sheldon Adelson throw millions against Amendment #2?

Sheldon Adelson, a Las Vegas casino magnate a high-profile Republican donor and CEO of Las Vegas Sands Corp.

Adelson has been seeking approval to build a resort casino in the state and guess what political party is in control of Florida?

Guess what political party is voting against Amendment #2?

Guess the only reason why that party is now against Amendment #2?

For the longest time this party was quiet about legalize medical marijuana?

Answer to the above questions came a short time ago in a few words spoken on WFTV News by Attorney John Morgan a Democrat.

Associated Press

The opposing campaigns battling over whether Florida should legalize medical marijuana are being largely funded by two wealthy individuals, who both insist their decision to open up their wallets is personal, not political.

Most of the money spent on Amendment 2 has come from opponent Sheldon Adelson, a Las Vegas casino magnate, and supporter John Morgan, the founder of a well-known Florida law firm whose slogan “For the People” shows up frequently on the state’s television and radio airwaves.

Florida’s battle over pot has been the sixth most expensive in the nation, according to advertising data on ballot measures assembled by the Center for Public Integrity.

So far, $3.4 million has been spent on more than 4,200 television ads, most of them encouraging Floridians to vote down Amendment 2.

To obtain marijuana, patients would have to get a doctor’s certification of their condition, which in turn would qualify them for patient ID cards they can use at licensed dispensaries.

Adelson, a high-profile Republican donor and CEO of Las Vegas Sands Corp., has given $4 million to the Drug Free Florida Committee. Adelson’s donations represent 84 percent of what the group has raised so far.

Adelson has been seeking approval to build a resort casino in the state, but Andy Abboud, vice president of Las Vegas Sands, said Adelson’s decision to spend his own money came after conversations with Mel and Betty Sembler, both prominent Florida Republicans who have long been involved in anti-drug efforts. Adelson’s own son died from a drug overdose, and his wife is a physician who has established drug treatment centers.

“It is a personal passion of theirs,” said Abboud, who called marijuana a “gateway drug.” Abboud added that the Adelsons intend to step up their involvement in other states to stop what he called the “mainstreaming” of marijuana.

“Pro marijuana folks have awoken a sleeping giant in Sheldon and Miriam Adelson,” Abboud said.

On the other side, Morgan and his law firm, Morgan & Morgan, are the largest donors to the group pushing the amendment, although most of Morgan’s nearly $4 million was largely aimed at helping collect the signatures needed to put the amendment on the ballot. Morgan’s firm hired Charlie Crist after he left the governor’s mansion nearly four years ago, and some have speculated that he pushed the amendment as part of an effort to boost turnout for Crist’s bid to defeat incumbent Republican Gov. Rick Scott.

The Orlando attorney, however, has said the catalyst for his effort to legalize medical marijuana came from watching his dying father struggle with cancer and the pain endured by his brother, Tim, who became a quadriplegic after he snapped his neck diving into a Walt Disney World lagoon while working as a lifeguard.

Morgan wasn’t expecting to spend as much as he did on the effort. He said his goal was to get the petition effort started, but didn’t realize he was going to do the bulk of the funding.

“All of a sudden you’re half way across the lake and the question is, ‘Do you swim back or do you keep going?’ That’s kind of where I found myself,” Morgan said recently.

He said at one point while waiting for the state Supreme Court to rule on the legality of the amendment, he questioned whether he should wait until 2016.

“Then I said, ‘You know what?

I’m just going to finish this bad boy off.

Write the checks. Take the hit,’” Morgan said.
