Orlando Political Press Presents; Florida's Top 10 People Of The Year

The year 2010 has come to an end and what better time is there to look back on who stood out, made a difference and set a positive example for his/her fellow Floridians.

This Top 10 list is focused on the political spectrum, as to be expected and is not all inclusive. The challenge is generating a top 10 list is that you will inevitable overlook a crucial name or include a name that will make others cringe. Which is what makes such lists fun!

Video; News Service Of Florida 2010 Year In Review

An interesting review of the quickly fading year by the staff at News Service of Florida, plus a look at what lays ahead in 2011.

As expected, much focus on Charlie Crist and how his decision to run for U.S. Senate dramatically altered the political scene in Florida and an equal effort on Rick Scott’s sudden arrival.

There is also an interesting discussion on how drastically the political arena changed in Florida from the 2008 election – the Obama wave, to the 2010 election and the Republican resurgence.

Good Grief… Leading RNC Candidate’s Law Firm Supports Obamacare – Says It’s Constitutional

This will go over well with the conservative base…

If you thought the fact that RNC Chair candidate, Maria Cino, was an Obamacare lobbyist was outrageous wait until you hear the latest…

The leading candidate in the race – Reince Priebus‘s law firm supports Obamacare and says its constitutional!

Yes, you read that correctly.

Napolitano Plays Grinch With Pilot’s 1st And 2nd Amendment Rights

By Brad O’Leary

Anti-gun activist and Department of Homeland Security chief Janet Napolitano has now put her distaste for both the First and Second Amendments on full display.

Napolitano’s victim over the Christmas break was Chris Liu, a commercial airline pilot based at San Francisco International Airport, who had been posting cell phone videos on YouTube that give first-hand accounts of what appear to be serious flaws in our nation’s airport security.

FreedomWorks; 2010 End Of The Year Report

By Matt Kibbe

As this remarkable year comes to a close, I wanted to write and thank you for all that you have done personally to support FreedomWorks and the millions of activists who work so hard to make a difference.

None of us could have done what we do without your support. I can say, with just a little bit of pride, that together you and I made a difference for our nation, for our freedoms, and for the futures of our children and grandchildren.

Egad, Alan Grayson For President???

Alan Grayson…President?

Reminds me of a Jack Nicholson line in the movie ‘As Good As It Gets’;

“Where do they teach you to talk like this? In some Panama City sailor wana hump hump bar or is this getaway day, and your last shot at his whiskey. Sell crazy someplace else, we’re all stocked up …”

An Aggressive Agenda For A Newly Remade House

By Rep.-elect Sandy Adams

I am looking forward to taking the oath of office on Jan. 5. Now is the time for incoming members of the 112th Congress to make a difference for the people we were chosen to represent.

If we act selfishly or unethically, we will have failed our constituents and let them down. If we act with honor and conviction and in a transparent manner, we can restore credibility to Congress that has been lacking for the better part of a decade.

Socialism Has Many Faces

Twenty-first-century socialism in Latin America actually consists of five socialisms, as many as the countries that constitute that caudillo-led, anti-republican, chaotic and authoritarian little world.

They unite in anti-Americanism, in the conviction that individuals must be at the service of the State, not the opposite, in their contempt for the market and in the superstition that the caudillo knows exactly what benefits or hurts all citizens, but they’re very different.

Ring Out the False; Ring In the True

By George Noga & Alfred Tennyson

As 2010 fades, let’s take a final waltz down memory lane with Obama, Bush, Gore and The New York Times.

Let’s ring out the false and ring in the true with stanzas from an 1850 Tennyson poem.

Ring out the old; ring in the new,
Ring happy bells across the snow;
The year is going, let him go;
Ring out the false; ring in the true.

FL Senate To Introduce Statutory Legislation Against Federal Healthcare Mandate

Today, Carey Baker, recently acquired aid/consultant to Senator Haridopolos, announced through a FaceBook post that state Sen. Rene Garcia will be filing a statutory version of SJR-2 Health Care Freedom Act.

This announcement is a clear victory for the tea party movement in the state, which is now being recognized as one of the most active, well organized in the nation. It also indicates a strong show of respect toward the movement by state lawmakers.
