I called several senators and told them how bad the START is. I read down to the telemetry part and got sick. If you read it you would see that we will give up our telemetry decodes and then anyone can use our downlink data. They can track our satellites without us knowing it. They need to read it on the floor then point out the problems.
The first START (Carter) killed the
The second forced us to cut up missile launching subs (Our first line of defense)
Obama said weapons in space will not occur on his watch. WOW,
GPS is a weapon in space will Obama issue a EX ORDER to not use GPS?
I did not have time to read the entire bill (No one else has either) Bet it weakens our technology as Carter's bill did.
I worked at
After Challenger congress ordered a 2 1/2 year costly stand down. I was the one impounding data after the blow up and learned within hours what happened.
The congress fix was a slide pole and parachutes so the crew could bail out. DUMB: The slide pole can only be used in level flight, below 10,000 feet and a ground speed of under 300 mph. This does not happen until 30 seconds before landing.
This added hundreds of pounds to the vehicle decreasing the payload. It has cost billions.
RE: FACEBOOK CONSORSHIP:
the site is free, so there's not much to complain about really.
i know of 2 other cases of censorship on FB:
1) a missionary kid i grew up with had her name censored; they did not accept Gay as a first name, so she uses Gaye instead.
2) my ol' punk band's name OrgAsmO was not allowed as part of a URL, so the page name is http://www.facebook.com/punk.CENSURADO instead.
c'est la vie.

I have as much respect for the memory of the deceased, and as much sympathy for the sufferings of the living, if suffering there be, as any man in this House, but we must not permit our respect for the dead or our sympathy for a part of the living to lead us into an act of injustice to the balance of the living. I will not go into an argument to prove that Congress has no power to appropriate this money as an act of charity. Every member upon this floor knows it. We have the right, as individuals, to give away as much of our own money as we please in charity; but as members of Congress we have no right so to appropriate a dollar of the public money. …
We cannot, without the grossest corruption, appropriate this money as the payment of a debt. We have not the semblance of authority to appropriate it as a charity. Mr. Speaker, I have said we have the right to give as much money of our own as we please. I am the poorest man on this floor. I cannot vote for this bill, but I will give one week’s pay to the object, and if every member of Congress will do the same, it will amount to more than the bill asks.
Need I mention that no other member of Congress took him up on his offer. Skip
I just happen to be at the VA clinic yesterday when they announced the repeal of the don't ask don't tell policy. The reaction to the repeal was opposite of that of today's military personnel
Sitting just two seats down from me, a man made the comment that he would not want a “fag” in the same foxhole he was in. His next comment is acceptable to be broadcast. As I scanned the area, it was obvious the man in the clinic were against the repeal by the movement of their head in a “no” matter to the announcement. From what I have heard, it appears that today's military personnel accepts repeal more than the older military personnel.
The man next to me made a very interesting comment. He had said for so long we have had no problem with the don't ask don't tell policy, now they went and did this. I wish I would have had time to talk to him, but I was called for my appointment.
I don't think you will find a citizen out here that does not appreciate and support good officers who work hard to make our society a safe place for us, without usurping their authority and our constitutional rights.
There will always be those (in any career field) that will abuse their authority and power. Shame on them. People with these inherent personality traits should NOT be in any position of authority where they can become a liability to their establishment, the community and themselves. We can only pray these folks don't put innocent people in their graves.
On the other hand, Hats off to our law enforcement officers that continue to protect and serve us! We must remember, police officers and military personnel are people, individuals just like you and me. If we don't want them to stereotype us, it would be hypocritical of us to stereotype them. Let's not judge them all by the bad actions of a few. I have to believe there is more "good" than "bad".

1. How about asking Bill Posey if he would support a repeal of bills passed by the 111th, specifically the repeal, of the repeal of DADT, healthcare, etc.
2. Observation: “Scooter” Libby (Bush Administration) is barred from practicing law because he allegedly “outed” Valerie Plame. No one was hurt because her name was revealed – she was nobody in the CIA except a pretty face. The charges were all bogus, but anti-Bush hate groups prevailed and the main stream, lame brain, brain dead media supported the outrage. In contrast, wiki-leaks releases over a quarter million classified documents jeopardizing military lives and sensitive information. This warped and twisted administration wrote a letter. Wow – a letter – that will teach Assange not to tweak the

“The tax bill contains thousands of earmarks. It is estimated "1,924 pages of spending and an average of $575.13 million per page!!!! "
What is it you do not remember about the results of the Nov 2010 election? Stop the needless spending.”
On his web site page http://billnelson.senate.gov/ he is gushing about the millions he is pouring into the high-speed rail near I-4. He is the classic bad Santa Claus – someone who uses your money to buy presents you do want and puts you in debt. But he thinks he looks like an important benefactor.

I thought I remember hearing on your show a few years ago about the SJR WMD with regards to handing out fines. I received a violation warning yesterday for having my sprinklers on at 1:05am on Wednesday morning. The person knocked on my door yesterday to give me the notice and led me to believe that the next time it happens I could receive a fine. Do they have the power to levy fines? According to the violation, it says I violated the Water Conservation/Landscape Irrigation Rule. It's not even a law. I just wonder if their threat carries any weight.
Yes, Chris, sadly they can and do levy fines…not that they should be able to, but we have lset government hand off its responsibilities to these clowns!

Bill Mick I have been listening to you on and off for several years. I often do not agree with many of your opinions but I do believe you are sincere in your beliefs and at least can provide a rationale for your opinions. That is better than most can do. I am driven to write to you this evening as a great injustice recently happened and I believe you are someone with enough tenacity to bring it to light. On Tuesday the Brevard County Board of
1. Masson has worked for county government for 40 years. He retired once, was paid out thousands of dollars from the infamous DROP program, county sick and vacation pay. He currently draws a full retirement and his new Director salary. If you marry the two figures he is the highest paid director in the county system. If he has been around for 40 years and was never selected as Director before - why now?
2. Masson was Charles "Chuckie" Nelson's right hand man, (Deputy Director) during the years that the Parks Referendum monies were depleted and the projects were not done. Masson was right there when the simple horse barns were torn down to make way for the $2 Million replacement barns. He ran the committees of citizens who were supposed to be selecting park features and never once told them they were spending too much money.
3. Masson is not the best choice and could have only been appointed for political reasons. Why? Does Chuckie have that much power? Is Tipton really so stupid that he thinks Masson can do that job? Is Bolin needing something done? Has Infantini just stopped harping on the double pay for retired people isssue? Fisher and Anderson...what were they thinking.
At a time of shrinking resources in an overbuilt parks system and with an EEL program that we still have not decided can pay its way after the bonds expire.... Masson was a bad choice. I know this kind of bad decisions by county commissioners and Tipton does not shock you or your listeners, but I just had to get it off my chest. Thanks for listening to me.
Looked for you at Shell’s Sunday evening… This was the first time my wife & I have ever been there. I always heard you talking about it on the show. It was everything you said it was, and more! Wendy had the Godfather Pasta with shrimp, while I had the Godfather Pasta with Chicken. We both had a bowl of New England Clam Chowder. I only had sweet iced tea to drink. My wife had a pitcher of sangria! For desert, we split a slice of Oreo cheesecake. The food was delicious. The portions were good. (I brought mine home & had it for lunch today.) Our server was a guy named Robert. He was very good, & very pleasant, making you want to come back again.
Just wanted to let you know how good one of your advertisers were. If I ever run into you there, drinks are on me!
It is really wearisome to hear the continual jabs taken at the Brevard Republican Executive Committee. I am a member and have be involved with the BREC for the past year and have watched it change and grow. To have the expectation that the BREC would reach it's full potential the day the new Chairman took office is unrealistic and, of course, that's not what happened. What has happened, though, is that we elected a Chairman that is very inclusive and does not just tolerate the 9/12 and Tea Party activists, but welcomes them and understands that they bring a much needed element to the organization. And she has done so at a time when some Republican leaders in this country are dismissive and even disdainful of the Tea Party movement. Our chairman was elected right on the cusp of the primary election and to focus, at that time, solely on holding Republicans accountable would have been a mistake. Instead she instituted multiple training programs to teach members how to work their precincts and be active participants in upcoming elections including poll watching, which is a valuable commodity to candidates. Now, we can say to our elected officials and potential candidates, "watch your step, watch your votes because we are armed with the skills and knowledge to take you down".
Our Chairman, Barbara Davis, has done a good job her short time in office and has worked very hard. I don't know if Frank Zilaitis is completely unaware of this fact or if it just makes for better radio to not acknowledge the work the committee has done but to lead the listeners to believe that we are ineffectual is plain wrong. Just MHO...
P.S. Are you aware of the recent visit by Gary Johnson (former 2 term Republican governor of

As a foot-note to the past several day's dialogue re: Salvation Army bell-ringers, I hereby relate the following. As I was about to enter Publix "Where Shopping is a Pleasure" (full disclosure - my wife works there), one of two nice lady bell-ringers said "for a dollar my friend will ring the bell; for two dollars she won't." I gladly dropped the deuce.
On a more serious note, The Salvation Army has long been at the top of the list for being the most responsible of all charities in the sense that a very high percentage of monies donated actually goes to the folks who need help, with the administrators taking very little for themselves. This is in stark contrast with some other orgs that pay their top officials salaries in the high six figures and ride around in limos, enjoying a lifestyle that most of their contributors can't afford. I don't have the supporting figures readily at hand, but they're easily Googleable. God Bless, Skip B.
Crediting God - On the player who was penalized for his gesture of gratitude to God for enabling him to score, we should be grateful for the young man’s faith and his willingness to publicly express it. I personally find it truly heartwarming to hear news of this nature (the gesture, not the penalty) considering that nearly all of today’s news concerning our youth is of an opposite nature, i.e. stories of drug/alcohol abuse, violent gang activities, teen pregnancy and other behavior that literally destroys their lives almost before they get started. We are constantly presented with television and print articles of celebrities from many different walks of life (athletes, singers, actors, authors, scientists, inventors, war heroes, Obama, you name it) being publicly recognized for various achievements and feats of excellence, both real and imagined. When confronted with the microphone, it's extremely rare for the awardee (?) to brag about how wonderful he/she is, and that he did it all on his own – that would be considered boastful, rude, and lacking class. Almost always you hear credit given to a parent, mentor, best friend, Nascar pit crew, coach, teacher, Nancy Pelosi, whomever - it's simply considered good manners, and no one is ever offended. Remember the Roy Rogers movies when you were a kid? He couldn't a' done it without his horse, and said so quite often. The key question to be asked is “Why is it okay, and even expected, for one to share credit for the accomplishment with another person (or a horse), but offensive to give credit to Almighty God, the Creator of the universe, without Whose benevolence we wouldn't have had the skills to excel in the first place?” God Bless, Skip B.
This is a bad idea unless Congress wants to legislate the Mortage companies to migrate all such contracts to a simple interest formula. Otherwise, the individual is stuck paying all of the interest up front, and higher taxes. This will completely remove any incentive for anyone to buy a home as opposed to renting. If we think the housing industry as collapsed now, you ain't seen nothing yet.
Something tells me that this deduction was intended to facilitate the banks raping us by loading all the interest up-front on a mortgage.

You may already know most of this Bill...
House cats and feral cats kill BILLIONS of song birds and ground nesting bird hatchlings every year. House cats don't use their claws often for defense. They use them to kill. The minute you let a house cat out the door, it is hunting, hungry or not, its mission is to find birds and kill them.
Many birds are insectivorous so they help to protect crops and orchards from bugs and worms. This was the only mechanism nature had to protect crops before insecticides were invented and widely used. Still to this day, insectivorous birds play an important role in nature.
Feral cats also kill the hatchlings of quail, ducks and other ground nesting birds, many of which are game birds.
When I was young, my hunting license had a note on the back to kill house cats whenever you came across them.
You must really hate Ferals to bring this one out!
How about meeting sometime soon, so I can introduce you to my Ferals (did you know I care for Ferals?).
Everyone has a right to their opinion, and personally I’d rather have my cats around than most of the people in this county.
Let me know when you want to come by, and I’ll also introduce you to the cardinals, blue jays, hawks, woodpeckers, opossums, and squirrels, lizards and butterflies that live in our yard; which is designated a wildlife habitat.
Am I missing something? I contacted Bill Posey to express my concerns over s510. I asked not to be contacted unless it was Bill himself and gave my phone number. Again, I got the rubber stamp email “expressing his concern” and “I voting against it” because there was some last minute changes he did not get to review.
The fact that he would actually think about voting for a bill to expand spending and control is what is pissing me off!!!
Unfortunately, I voted for him because the alternative would have voted yes.

check my cars doors and for loose articles laying around in my vehicle at the Merritt Square Mall?
I went to purchase a copy of Windows Home Server Sunday and while leaving the Mall I spotted a Brevard County Sheriff putting a piece of paper on a car's windshield. This peaked my interest since I know that parking tickets are difficult to get while sitting still at the Mall parking lot. I watched the Officer walk to the next vehicle, pause by the passenger door, stoop and peak in for 5 seconds then proceed to the driver's door. This is where he placed a tablet on the roof and wrote something on it and then place the piece of paper between the windshield and the wiper. Since he didn't write down the license plate number on the form it could have been just a discount coupon for Obamacare! Either way - it pissed me off.
Why is my tax payer money being spent on such a program when the State & Local Governments are already strapped for cash? Doesn't the Constitution state you have the right to remain stupid while your unlocked car is vandalized? Would it not be simpler to mail out "My car is protected by Smith & Wesson" bumper stickers to all the local residents? Send two to Bill Nelson. In order to check for a locked door, you must pull on the handle to open and then close the door. A police officer has no right to do that.
