The GOP Loyalty Pledge and why we should all be afraid….how arguments of originalism and the intent of our Founding Fathers have been twisted from the words penned by George Washington.
Dave Bald Eagle Sr. WW-2 Veteran
So sorry for the delay by friends, personal reasons that could not be helped.
I’m at a loss for words.
It is with great sorrow that I must post that my friend David Beautiful Bald Eagle Sr. has passed at the age of 97 yesterday evening at home, on the Cheyenne River Sioux rez.
Dave was a wonderful man.
Gentle, kind, wise, with a lovely sense of humor.
What an incredibly rich life he lived!
He will be missed by many people from different nations and countries all across the world. Forever in my heart and sweet memories.
I’m sending comforting & loving hugs to all his relatives & friends.

The Everglades Trust
In the face of overwhelming proof that our waterways are under siege
and on the verge of collapse,
you would think your government could be trusted.
But you would be wrong.
The South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD)
Owned by Governor Rick Scott!
recently promoted a
“Myth vs Fact” sheet.
Maybe you received it.
This State agency continues to deny and deflect responsibility.
You deserve better.
What you will get from the Everglades Trust are the facts and the truth.
The Governor and Florida Department of Environmental Protection
provide daily control over the actions of the SFWMD Governing Board and staff.
Since 2010, shortly after they agreed to sell the land,
US Sugar has been lobbying Florida government to not go through with the deal – a written binding contract. They spent nearly 11 million dollars on campaign contributions in 2014 alone.
In 2014, 75% of Florida voters amended the state constitution again.
This time, to pass the Florida Water and Land Conservation Amendment, which: “Funds the Land Acquisition Trust Fund to acquire, restore, improve, and manage conservation lands… including the Everglades.”
The SFWMD is responsible for managing and protecting water resources of South Florida by balancing and improving flood control, water supply, water quality and natural systems.
Despite overwhelming evidence and independent scientific support from more than 200 scientists for additional storage south of Lake Okeechobee, the SFWMD has consistently refused to meaningfully consider any additional options for storage south of Lake Okeechobee.
The one CERP project that will provide the most relief to the northern coastal communities, the Everglades and Florida Bay (The Keys) is the Everglades Agricultural Area (EAA) reservoir. Without additional storage in the EAA, the Everglades will not be restored, Florida Bay will continue to suffer from a lack of fresh water, and the coastal communities will continue to receive harmful Lake Okeechobee discharges.
No more excuses. Just fix it.
This is a horrific symptom of years of water mismanagement that we are seeing play out in our waterways and oceans throughout South Florida today. Here is the solution: Buy the land in the EAA. Build the reservoir. Restore the flow of CLEAN freshwater into our Everglades and get it down to a starving Florida Bay.

Let’s skip words like,
“Make America Crayola Crayons Again!”
In other words,
let’s go back to the Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush, George W. Bush years.
all four presidencies were with a
(Republican Controlled Congress),
as was the countries problem with the President Barrack Obama, a
(Republican Controlled Congress)!
based on historical figures from the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office,
shows the total deficit or surplus for each fiscal year from 1990 through 2006.
Keep in mind that fiscal years begin Oct. 1,
So the first year that can be counted as a Clinton year is fiscal 1994.
Congressional Budget Office, “Historical Budget Data,” undated, accessed 6 Sep 2010.
President Ronald Reagan
President Reagan added $1.412 trillion in deficits, nearly doubling the debt.
He fought the 1982 recession by cutting the top income tax rate from 70% to 28%,
and the corporate rate from 48% to 34%.
He also increased government spending by 2.5% a year.
That included a 35% increase in the defense budget and an expansion of Medicare.
President George H.W. Bush
President George H.W. Bush created a $1.03 trillion deficit in one term.
He responded to Iraq’s invasion of Kuwait with Desert Storm.
He oversaw the $125 billion bailout that ended the 1989 Savings and Loan crisis.
The 1991 recession cut into tax revenue.
Although most other Presidents ran deficits, none comes close to these four.
Part of that is because the U.S. economy, as measured by GDP, was so much smaller for other Presidents.
For example, in 1981 GDP was only $3 trillion, growing by five times to $15 trillion in 2012.
See the table below for a year-by-year detail of each President’s budget deficit since President Woodrow Wilson.
President George W. Bush
President Bush is next, racking up $3.293 trillion over two terms.
He responded to the attacks on 9/11 with the War on Terror,
driving total military spending to at least $600 billion a year.
Unfortunately, the cuts did not sunset when the recession was over,
adding to the housing boom and depleting revenues during the 2008 recession.
Congress added it to the mandatory budget,
where it became the Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP).
Letter to the Editor
This is an interesting letter to say the least.
As you will learn by reading the following letter and books on our people, this government murdered hundreds of thousands of
unarmed, defenseless, innocent, old men, women and children from tribes throughout Indian Country (The United States of America).
While knowing this,
still no president, including President Barrack Obama,
will end the insult to an innocent man and free Leonard Peltier.
Yes, someone and no one really knows who,
shot two Federal Agents after someone, no one knows who,
fired a shot,
while the Federal Agents were trespassing on private land
Letter to the Editor
Native Americans’ treatment shameful
If the Ten Commandments are something from the Bible that should be taken literally,
I think it is logical to conclude that America has to be disqualified from the claim of being a Christian nation,
since the commandments against
stealing, murdering, coveting and making false idols
were heinously violated when the federal, state and local governments
decided to greedily take minerals and precious metals from the Native Americans’ lands
without compensation and then brutally expropriated those same lands.
“Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee,”
I was horrified to learn that when the U.S. Cavalry was tasked with removing Native Americans from their lands,
abominable methods were used that often approximated those of the Islamic State.
Basically, any and all atrocities imaginable were perpetrated against defenseless and peaceful women, children, babies and old people.
Furthermore, and perhaps more importantly,
what reinforces this notion that the U.S. cannot be thought of as a Christian nation is that the mistreatment of Native Americans is being perpetuated to this day,
with the continued existence of reservations where living conditions are tragically inhumane,
with unemployment rates reaching 80 percent,
where alcoholism and drug abuse are rampant
where hopelessness results in teenage suicide rates up to 10 times the national average.
It has been said that the measure of a society
is how it cares for the least of those in that society.
It is a sad state of affairs when non-profit organizations like Remote Area Medical
are needed to provide the services that impoverished people are entitled to by virtue not only of the principle of common human decency
but by being the citizens of the wealthiest nation on the planet.
I think it is high time this country atoned for its misdeeds in any and every way possible.
Robert A. Christiansen, Knoxville
Allan Webb on Sunday
And no dramatic measures have even been considered in addressing the problems that our indigenous people have.
I don’t have a solution but we owe it to them.
The politicians ignore them except for helping them get casinos on reservations.
They probably got a kick-back from the gambling lobby as a donation to the benefit of the members of the two houses of Congress.
might not be the sharpest tack in the package,
I for one have the answer

President Obama tapes television ad for Patrick Murphy’s U.S. Senate campaign
Jul 20, 2016
U.S. Rep. Patrick Murphy will begin airing his first Senate campaign television ad,
a 30-second spot featuring President Barack Obama.
The ad will begin airing statewide on Wednesday,
and it features the president speaking directly to the camera.
Obama says Murphy is a strong progressive who stands up to the gun lobby and supports social security and protecting women’s right to an abortion.
Obama also acknowledges Murphy is targeted by opponents
and tells viewers not to believe the negative attacks.
He ends the ad by saying,
“I count on Patrick Murphy. You can too.”
“I am humbled and honored that President Obama is proudly supporting our campaign to fight for Florida families,” said Murphy. “The President knows that Florida needs a leader in the Senate who shows up for work and fights for our shared priorities, like protecting Social Security and Medicare, fighting for a woman’s right to choose, and standing up to the gun lobby to reduce gun violence.”
Murphy is facing U.S. Rep. Alan Grayson in the Democratic primary Aug. 30. The winner will either take on Republican Sen. Marco Rubio or developer Carlos Beruff.
Governor Rick Scott said today,
“Trump will Fire all of the Washington Politicians!”
This is just some of the
“bold in your face lies,”
that Governor Rick Scott has been getting away with in Florida for years.
The president cannot fire anyone in congress or in the Supreme Court, the voters are charged with that right.
No one can fire the Supreme Court Judges!
Low and behold,
“the Legislative and/or the Judicial,”
cannot fire the president without just cause as in (Impeached).
congress, senate, House of Representatives
Supreme Court (nine justices) or the other Federal Courts.
I am choose the Kids.gov picture, so that Scott could understand.
This would be called Communism)!

Governor Rick Scotts company is Fracking and drilling in the Everglades Florida.
Rick Scott’s Florida: Fracking in the Everglades Now a Reality
Friday, May 23, 2014
Fracking is the process of taking millions of gallons of water,
mixing it with tens of thousands of gallons of chemicals
pumping the mixture underground at extreme pressure
to break up rock formations and release oil or natural gas.
Over 700 chemicals are commonly used in the process of drilling and fracking for oil and gas.
Of these, dozens are listed as
“chemicals of concern”
because of their link to myriad health harms, and several are known carcinogens or endocrine disruptors that have proven links to breast cancer.
Don’t Frack With Our Health
Jul 14 2016
We need ALL our elected officials—no matter what party they belong to—to know that we want representatives that are going to put public health before oil and gas industry profit.
Posted on July 14, 2016
By Alyssa Figueroa, Campaigns Coordinator This past weekend, the Democratic Party voted against including a fracking ban in their party platform. The Republican Party wouldn’t even discuss a ban.
No federal money to clean up Florida Rivers
Amendment One passed by a 75% Yes Vote
According to the Associated Press, Florida voters have passed Amendment 1, a measure that designates billions of dollars to conservation efforts over the next 20 years.
The Associated Press declared Amendment 1 passed on Tuesday. With about half the expected votes counted, the amendment had 75 percent “yes” votes to 25 percent no. It needed 60 percent of the vote to pass.
Amendment 1 will draw its funding from an existing real estate tax, and would dedicate 33 percent of it annually to conservation. That would be about a billion a year.
About half of the money will fund Florida Forever, a conservation land purchasing program that saw its budget slashed by 97 percent since 2009 dude to the Great Recession. The money was never restored after the economy rebounded.
It was to be used for our Lakes, rivers and Lagoons, whatever happened to the money?
Sugar companies pollute, Lobbyist pay money, Governor Rick Scott, Senator Marco Rubio, Florida republican controlled congress, and past governors, open their pockets.
