And every family of the employees of FEMA will have a warm comfortable home to live in for the rest of their lives.
HOWEVER


As of April 20th about 3,000 of our neighboring families from Puerto Rico will be put out into the streets with hundreds if not thousands, of our veterans already in the woods!


Humans staying under the TSA program in 34 states and the island, including 937 families in Florida.
The FEMA spokesperson notes this number changes daily.

Hundreds of Puerto Rican evacuees could be evicted from Central Florida hotels by the end of this week after stricter eligibility requirements disqualified many of them from FEMA’s temporary housing program.
U.S. Rep. Darren Soto says about 1,800 evacuees staying in Florida will be denied extensions by FEMA for the Transitional Sheltering Assistance (TSA) program. The federal program provides short-term lodging assistance in the form of hotel vouchers for people displaced by disasters. 
Soto says many families were relying on FEMA to extend their vouchers until May 14 – but on Monday, FEMA told evacuees the aid would be cut off by Friday, April 20. The Orlando Democrat urged the federal agency and Puerto Rico’s governor to extend the TSA program without conditions until the end of the school year in Central Florida on May 31.

My question to Florida Governor Rick Scott?

Mr. Scott (soon to be unemployed), explain on TV if you can just how you a loner,

will be able to do what hundreds of senators and hundreds of House of Representatives have not been able to do if elected?
Remembering that the Supreme Court has already ruled on this!
Also
One cannot take this from the poor and give to the rich!
And
Lord knows one cannot take this from the rich to give to the poor!

Ever been caught between a rock and a hard place?

 As a Veteran I am extremely unset with trump and everyone that believes our veterans should be deported!
However, I am and have been extremely upset with the thousands of ‘veterans’ that voted for trump!
We had to stop going to my reunions both ships because of the language of the, so called, (Shipmates)!
If my shipmates did not work together while underway no telling what would happen?
I like to believe that it is like that in all branches of service.

Stop the Deportation of our military Veterans


Alex DiBranco started this petition to State Senator Juan Vargas 2 and 5 others
Service members sign up to put their lives on the line in defense of the United States of America. Veterans deserve respect and support for their willingness to take risks on behalf of the country.
But immigrant veterans are being deported from the adopted country they love, discarded after answering the call of duty.
Promises made that America would honor their service, provide a permanent home, and a path to citizenship, were utterly broken.

Portrayal Of A Deported Immigrant Who Served In The US Military But Who Became A US Citizen

Gronda Morin

Image result for photos of us military immigrants being deported

The following details tell the true story about the US immigration community where some are here without documentation. The republican President Donald J. Trump and his republican hard-line anti-immigration supporters would like to be paint them, mostly as criminals, rapists and drug pushers but all the credible studies, facts, evidence prove just the opposite. There will always be some bad apples in any community but the numbers of the criminal element within the undocumented immigration neighborhoods is much less than when compared to other groups comprised of mostly US citizens.

See: MOSTLY TRUE: Undocumented immigrants less likely to commit crimes/ PolitiFact …

This story is not about ordinary undocumented immigrants but those who have served in the US military, fighting in our wars at a tremendous cost against to themselves. They and all our hurting veterans deserve better.

Governor Rick Scott’s ad for term limits?  

What Rick Scott would need to pass his Term Limits on Congress?
There are two ways to change the U.S. Constitution.
Can this be done for Scott before
November 2018?
I think not!
The first way is the way we usually think of, passing a bill through congress with a two-thirds majority vote in both the House of Representatives and the Senate. 
The second part of Article V of the Constitution
allows us to bypass Congress,
call a Term Limits Convention.
Two-thirds of state legislatures (34) 
pass bills applying for the Term Limits Convention.
Congress is mandated to call the Convention.
The Convention, which features delegates chosen by the states, proposes one or more term limits amendments.
Three-quarters of states (38) must ratify the amendment, either by legislature or state convention.
With this process there are checks in place to make sure that there is a narrow agenda for the term limits convention to discuss ONLY term limits on Congress.
This will ultimately help us accomplish our goal as over 75% of Americans agree with term limits.
It means no other divisional issue can sneak in and prevent our progress. https://www.termlimits.com/do-we-need-congressional-approval-to-create-term-limits-on-congress/
Have There Been Attempts to Impose Term Limits on Congress?
There have been numerous attempts by some lawmakers to pass statutory term limits, but all of those proposals have been unsuccessful.
Perhaps the most famous attempt at passing term limits came during the so-called Republican revolution when the GOP took control of Congress in the 1994 midterm elections.
Term limits were a tenet of the Republican Contract with America.
https://www.britannica.com/topic/Contract-with-America
The contract called for a removal of career politicians through a first-ever vote on term limits as part of the Citizen Legislature Act.
https://www.thenewamerican.com/reviews/opinion/item/5481-term-limits-and-the-citizen-legislature-scam
AND
https://www.change.org/p/president-trump-congressional-reform-act-of-2017
Term limits never came to fruition.
What about the Congressional Reform Act?
The Congressional Reform Act does not exist.
https://www.thoughtco.com/congressional-reform-act-will-never-pass-3322269
It is a fiction passed off in email chains as a legitimate piece of legislation that would limit members of Congress to 12 years of service – either two six-year Senate terms or six two-year House terms.
What Are the Arguments in Favor of Term Limits?
Proponents of term limits argue that restricting the service of lawmakers prevents politicians from amassing too much power in Washington and becoming too alienated from their constituents.
The thinking is that many lawmakers view the work as a career and not a temporary assignment, and therefore spend much of their time posturing, raising money for their re-election campaigns and running for office instead of focusing on the important issues of the day.
Those who favor term limits say they would remove the intense focus on politics and place it back on policy.
What Are the Arguments Against Term Limits?
The most common argument against term limits goes something like this: “We already have term limits. They’re called elections.” The primary case against term limits is that, indeed, our elected officials in the House and Senate must face their constituents every two years or every six years and get their approval.
Imposing term limits, opponents argue, would remove the power from voters in favor of an arbitrary law. For example, a popular lawmaker seen by her constituents as being effective and influential would want to re-elect her to Congress – but could be barred from doing so by a term-limit law.
Governor Rick Scott’s ad for term limits?


Scott argues that, of the 41,000-plus zip codes in the country,
Just one opposes term limits:
Washington, D.C.?

Sounds like a normal statement don’t it?

Oil prices rise after Air Strike
Sounds like a normal statement don’t it?
Well to a normal person I guess it would.
However, I have never been accuser as being normal, no sense starting now?


Syria itself produces very little oil.
As a U.S. military strike against Syria grows increasingly likely, oil prices have slowly crept higher.
WHY?
Because it can!


Today, the U.S. actually gets most of its imported oil from Canada and Latin America.
And many Americans might be surprised to learn that the U.S. now imports roughly the same amount of oil from Africa as it does from the Persian Gulf.
African imports were a bit higher in 2010, while Persian Gulf oil accounted for a bit more last year.
What I do not understand is why my friends and neighbors are so contented with this greed?
As you know, I worked just shy of 40 years with oil and gas, working at keeping equipment working (Service Technician).

Sell it to Arab OPEC companies!

The Paul Ryan Story: From Flimflam to Fascism

 

By Paul Krugman
Opinion Columnist

Why did Paul Ryan choose not to run for re-election? What will be the consequences? Your guess is as good as mine — literally. I can speculate based on what I read in the papers, but so can you.
On the other hand, I do have some insight into how Ryan — who has always been an obvious con man, to anyone willing to see — came to become speaker of the House. And that’s a story that reflects badly not just on Ryan himself, not just on his party, but also on self-proclaimed centrists and the news media, who boosted his career through their malfeasance. Furthermore, the forces that brought Ryan to a position of power are the same forces that have brought America to the edge of a constitutional crisis.

Scam calls getting more frequent and less fun

LANE: My newest hero!
Thank you Mark.
laughter is the best medicine to end the day.

Mark Lane News Journalist
Scam calls getting more frequent and less fun
We need a better class of phone scammers.
They used to try harder. They used to pride themselves on adding the small personal touches that give a come-on some believability, a little verisimilitude.
These days it’s strictly a volume-based business. No attempts at boiler-room sales patter. None of the old con-man charm. Standards aren’t what they used to be.
I got a call from a Jamaican-based call center last week in which the guy cursed and hung up on me within no more than a minute and a half.
This was disappointing and, I felt, unprofessional of him. I’m used to being able to string along a scam caller for at least five minutes with false enthusiasm (“I must be one lucky guy to have won a cruise like that!”), unreasonable demands (“Could you leave the money I’ve won in a grocery bag by my front door? My religion demands I operate on a cash-only basis”) and questions to steer the caller off-message (I am a professional, after all).
A friend of mine with a most sincere telephone voice once offered to pray with a student-loan debt scammer. “I want to talk to you about your immortal soul. You must feel horrible doing this to people day after day,” she said before he hung up with her.
Like her, I feel I’ve kind of won when they hang up on me rather than vice versa.
An effective scam appeals either to greed or fear. I am a generally sunny and optimistic person despite critical claims to the contrary, so I respond more readily to greed than to fear.
Appeals to fear hack me off. You should hear me at election time.
And lately, the scam cell phone calls have gone from entirely greed-based to primarily fear-based. From fake winnings to fake prosecution. Instead of “you may already be a winner,” it’s “you may already be a felon.” I see this as a troubling cultural indicator.
Lately, my wife has been getting repetitive calls claiming that we are tax criminals and police are heading to our house at this moment to haul us away in handcuffs unless we call back this instant and arrange easy payment terms.
The script was written by somebody with a shaky and secondhand knowledge of English as it is spoken. But what was offensive was the fact that it wasn’t even a person talking. It wasn’t even a recording of a person talking. It was crude, computer-generated speech.
Robo speech in a robo call. So impersonal.
And here, I should be very plain: If you get a call from someone identifying themselves as the U.S. Internal Revenue Service — or more hilariously, simply “the government” — who wants fast payment over the phone, this is always a scam and an old one at that.
The same goes for warnings that you must pay fines right this minute now for failing to show up for jury duty.
Bonus hint: An agency of the federal government is unlikely to refer to its enforcement arm as “the cops.”
Language use, it matters. The scammers could be ever so much more effective if they’d only hire copy editors.
These calls are common enough that sheriff’s departments and the IRS are forever warning people not to respond to them. And with April being tax-deadline month, a lot more people are receiving them right now.
Which suggests I’m getting these calls because everyone else is getting them and not, as I’ve long suspected, because I’m on a special suckers list. Which is reassuring in its own way.
