FIRST, IT WAS NO BULLET TRAIN FOR FLORIDA, NOW, IT’S AGAINST WOMEN,
PARENTS AND FAMILIES?
Florida Governor Scott rejected the money that was made available for the famous and dead bullet train project. Now, the Florida Legislature has sent back another piece of federal money: $ 4.9 million. Yes, another hit. Now it’s against programs around the state that provide in-home visits to parents in areas with high rates of premature babies, poverty, crime, substance abuse, joblessness, child abuse and other issues. These in-home visits are designed to combat those problems by deploying professionals who teach parenting and other skills.
Now you tell me what is wrong with this, especially in these times. The Florida Legislature decided to reject the money and have it given to other state. One legislator stated that private, faith-based groups should have a bigger role helping parents. This is probably true, but in these economic times these groups do not have the means to provide this type of specialized service.
So what is the REAL reason for all of this? DAMM POLITICS and DAMM POLITICIANS.
These people in Congress and most of our governors and state legislators, no matter what party you belong to only think of themselves and how far they need to go to “buy” votes. It is a true discrace and shame to have come to a point where the political discourse in this country has become more a fight between animals with no respect for humans at all. So, this will probably end the day we get rid of ALL of them. The owners of the circus and their animals are coming to town to show how fierce they are….the same thing will be repeated the week after in Charlotte. The end result: there is no hope for the poor and for those that can’t defend themselves in this country. Yes, WE ARE A THIRD WORLD COUNTRY!!
See you next week!
