Article Headline: Vote, Even if You Have to Hold Your Nose


Comment:
Remember to Speak out as The Voice of the People. On Election Day you are the Voice of the People and you have The Equalizer. Your Vote does Count. Your Vote becomes the Voice of the People. Without your Vote the Voice of the People is not heard.
You may not be blessed with power or blessed with money or you may not have any Power or Money, but there is one thing you are Empowered with and Blessed with that Stripes away All Power and Money, you do have the equalizer. On that one day a beggar stands shoulder to shoulder with the President as equals.
You have the One Vote. On Election Day everyone has the one thing that gives them Ultimate Power and Extreme Wealth, That one thing that levels the playing field is guaranteed as a right to all Citizens.
On that One day you are the President of all that you survey. The Vote causes all people to be dressed in white linen and makes everyone equal in the eyes of God and man. On one day we are all equal, there is no class distinction on that day.
That one thing is the Vote. It is not only a right but also an obligation to yourself, your family and your fellow citizens to vote. That one vote either extends the misdeeds and corruption or corrects the problems of the past. It is your right to chose which will become your destiny and your future. On Election Day you chose what lies behind the Door of your Future.
On Election Day you chose which door is opened, or which door is Closed. What are your future and your destiny? Your Vote will determine??

Article Headline: Cortez Bridge Causes Ruckus at MPO Meeting


Comment:
And so the game Ends. Developers ?Winners? vs. People of Manatee County, People of Anna Marie Island, People of Cortez Village ?Losers? and the ?DOORMAT?
Be sure and wipe your feet on the people before you proceed with your development.
I am sure beyond a reasonable doubt that the Judge gave very careful consideration to every possible facet of contempt for the citizenry of Anna Maria Island, Cortez Village, and the People of Manatee County in the position he has taken.
He surely has closely examined that position before considering such a volatile act such as this in a well rehearsed and planned move much like a ?chess game?. This will be nothing more than hiccup or a small bump in the road for the developers and soon the little people will lose interest and lose again and the little game will be over and to hell with what the people want or for that matter what the laws of physics say is possible.
I am also sure the Judge carefully considered just how it is you put a Thousand pounds of Potatoes into a five pound sack. It makes no difference as long as the Developers are made happy.
I am sure the Judge has made every possible effort not to in any way include the judicial position in or part of an illegal act but one wonders just how close to the edge of that abyss one can come without stepping over the edge and I am sure that careful, deliberate, considerate, decisions concerning this matter with the letter of the law and not the intent of the law were found in that decision making process. He finds he can live with being held in contempt, but he cannot be held liable or charged as part of a criminal conspiracy, payoff, backroom deal, part of an elite foursome on a country club golf course, kind of like good old honest Tricky Dick Nixon, "I Am Not A Crook".
It is imbecilic, idiotic, senile decisions like this that prompt people to action even when they might remain uninformed, on the periphery of the decision making process, and basically docile and passive.
People are tired of always being stepped on and of being used as Doormats. They are Mad as Hell and are not going to take it anymore.

Article Headline: Cortez Bridge Causes Ruckus at MPO Meeting


Comment:
What more evidence do you need to judge Bustle as a servant for developers? Everyone knows that the horrendous traffic jams created by the projected Manatee Fruit, IMG and Long Bar Pointe developments not only threaten the lifestyle of these adjoining communities, but pad the already fat wallets of Neal, Beruff and Gang. Thank you John Chappie for standing firm for Cortezans. We shall not forget your support. And woe to any commissioners running in 2016 if they think they can ignore our communities by defending the wanton destruction of Old Florida that some commissioners like to sell, but ignore when The Neals & Beruffs come calling with their latest demands. Another reason to vote for Wonder and rid us of Whitmore. It's sad to see how disrespectful Bustle is towards voters. Lt. Col. (ret.)Bustle's arrogance gives the US military a bad name. Surely Bustle forgets to respect and only remembers to obey his bosses wearing those fancy suits and shiny shoes. Once again John Rehill's reporting accurately accounts the misdeeds of Bustle. Keep it up, John. Make Larry's day. It's not too late to edumacate him, is it?

Article Headline: County Commissioners Need to Find Their Political Courage on Medicaid Expansion


Comment:
Yes, Dennis Cohen,Obamacare should have covered the indigents'healthcare. Most of us were not cynical enough to believe that the Republicans on the BoCC and our legislature would not permit our federal tax dollars to come back to us.If the complete Obamacare package had been implemented, our indigents, health care issues would be largely resolved in a cost effective manner rather than have them using the ER.

Article Headline: County Commissioners Need to Find Their Political Courage on Medicaid Expansion


Comment:
In the Middle of this question and controversy and even possible criminal action is Carol Whitmore receiving almost 40% of Campaign funding from Health Care Resources. The other question is where did the Money go for the Health Care go leading up to the bandruptcy, there has never been a proper audit? Gwen, John, Betsy, and Carol need to address the Bankruptcy issue before any action is taken. Does this mean the Axis of Evil, "The Mean Girls" Gwen, Betsy, and Carol, will have their way and dump the indigent into the streets and the gutter, and grease the palm of Corporate Health Care? Only the Vote in November will tell who wins this issue. You or Corporation, who will win? Money is not the equalizer, but the Vote is an equalizer. The vote levels an otherwise slippery slope. BE SURE AND VOTE!

Article Headline: Letter to the Editor: Buy Land in Times Like These?


Comment:
"The Present" will always have challenges, most of which will be eased when people have available to them adequate safe drinking water, the joy of wildlife and the tranquility of natural surroundings. With today's threats to all of these valuable assets to the human condition, it is more imperative than ever to ensure the survival of same by setting aside a small percentage of EXISTING funds to preserve the land required for these essentials to a safe and peaceful future. I say YES to amendment one.

Carol Whitmore is not an truthful & decent person. She also is not honest & reliable. She brushes most citizens off as if we are nothing & of no use to her. Donna Hayes has always been a caring honest individual. Thank you for stating the obvious.

Article Headline: Your Flag Lapel Pin Won't Get You Into Heaven Anymore


Comment:
If it were not for financial need, I doubt that we would be able to recruit an adequate volunteer military, due to the repeated mistreatment of its members. This information connotes another dismal failure of our political system and the self-serving attitude of elected officials.

Comment:
Thank you Dennis for the info. Sadly I am not surprised by this , during the Vietnam war the U.S. government exposed the troops to agent orange and then denied it for quite some time, claiming Monsanto didn't tell them of the risks. Shame on our government and most of all shame on Monsanto!
FYI the EPA just approved use of enlist duo , a pesticide for our crops that has the same chemicals as Agent Orange and them some...nothing much has changed.

Comment:
RED, WHITE, AND BLUE DOES NOT MEAN THEY WORK FOR YOU.
All Candidates pull out the Oldest ploy in the book to get your votes, RED, WHITE, and BLUE. Playing the old ace of cards trick, Bunting and Sign arrayed in the Colors of the Nation, they are suppose to appeal to our sense of patriotism, but they are JUST COLORS and meaningless without the soul of ethics and honor and truth to follow through on the pledge to office and representation. They are just COLORS to HIDE THE DARK SIDE that lurks off stage and behind the doors.
When they take that pledge to hold office do they honor that pledge or is it merely put forth as lip service.
Nothing Grows in the Garden of Government. The Plants are Sterile and fruitless and the garden is choked and overgrown by weeds and it strangles the fruit of the garden. The Weeds of Government have been there longer than most of the Plants. It is past time to remove the blight, cut down the weeds, pull the weeds out by the roots, Weed the garden, and pull those nasty weeds out by the roots. It is ?Time? plow the garden under and to put in some new healthy plant stock in the Garden of Government that can bear fruit and produce abundance. Surely we have some healthy Plant Stock Somewhere.

Comment:
I applaud Donna for standing up and saying what most people in this county are scared of saying. Donna has never been a liar,a citizen oriented fact finder; yes... Liar, NO. If nonbelievers want facts then please contact Terri Wonders' campaign office. We have Documents galore showing CW lying, backpedaling, and playing the unaware game. You can not dispute facts, you may try & distort them, but the truth will & has surfaced. Unfortunately, some Manatee county residents... "Can't handle the truth" !!
