Jim Greer, the former GOP chair who's trial was scheduled to begin this morning has instead changed his plea to guilty on some of the charges.
Greer's trial was expected to cause tremendous damage and embarrassment to many Florida (R) and former (R) politicians including, Crist and Rubio and perhaps spinning off criminal charges against others.
What will he say that we don't already know? I doubt he will have any affect upon Charlie Crist. What do you think?

F ck the constitution! The mere fact that you people think a piece of paper written over 200yrs ago can guide America into this unknown future is retarded in itself. How can America ever have peace & equality living under thee rules of another time/ history where in life was far from equal & thee writers of that old ass paper of rules were racist themselves. It's true, you people are stupid & & slave minded!
Please post under your real name, Barack.

Solar energy is far from free. The capital investment per kilowatt of capacity is huge, as are the maintenance costs. Plus, added investment in backup fossil-fueled power is essential to reliability.
Solar energy is free. We just ignore it so we can dig coal, & drill for oil,which we pay for.

It may be expensive to get set up to retrieve it. But once the expenditures are made,the energy is free.

Just like the costs to retreive oil, gas & coal, infrastructure, etc cost money.

(D)Charlie Crist looks the liar in the Jim Greer trial. Every gift from Greer is a wish for Charlie's happiness..
Greer just plead out rather than stand trial, Greer's business partner admitted guilt three years ago.

Crist has not been charged nor have any other Florida lawmakers.

That would require a person to think about what he is saying. Doesn't make for sensational headlines meant to scare the feeble minded. They'd rather believe that the black President is going to drone them to death, get whitey!!!
Obama's drone policy is sufficiently vague that it allows a "high-ranking government official" to take out anybody he chooses. Only you fools believe that it might not be used in the future by this ruthless tyrant against political opponents.

(D) Charlie Crist has not been charged yet nor have any other Florida lawmakers is correct. Charlies doesn't regret the things he has done. Charlie will regret the things he didn't do when he had the chance.

Probably won't affect Crist or anyone else now. Greer had Cheney Mason of Casey Anthony fame representing him and turned down a plea agreement just a month or two ago.

He's off to jail now for sure__there could have been a lot more charges__the Florida GOP execs all had side deals going on.

Carlson — who noted yesterday that she, too, didn’t have an issue with Obama’s policy — then went on to ask Peters about the criticism that American citizens should be given due process. Peters deemed it “absolute nonsense.”
“Throughout our history we have killed Americans who took up arms against their law-abiding fellow citizens,” he asserted.“This is not a legal issue. It’s not an issue at all.”
“If an American turns his back on Americans and tries to kill Americans, you kill the sucker, period,” Peters added.“No legal issue. Kill him.”
“Agreed, from this point of view,” Carlson noted, asking whether he feared it would “go beyond that.”
“Obama is doing one sensible thing,” he replied.“Let’s give him credit for the one smart thing he’s doing, whatever his motivation may be.”

it's funny watching the local nutjobs attacking Obama for drones while they're being blasted out of the water by the right wing media.
Gretchen Carlson does a morning news and feature show and is hardly "right wing media", or very political at all.

Group insurance policies, which most employees have, do not consider any personal habits. They consider only the claims experience of the group.
Lots of healthy-eating and extremely fit people have chronic illnesses and/or drop dead of heart attacks at a young age.
They would consider location & look at the group as a whole. Too many fat employees would raise their rates.

Why do you think some companies offer incentives for employees to get healthier.

If those young people have chronic illnesses, insurance companies will either opt not to insure or charge more.

GOP Rep. Peter King Dismisses Concerns About Drone Warfare:‘So Much Liberal Hand-Wringing’

MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell asked King for his thoughts on the Obama administration’s legal justification for drone strikes against American citizens involved with terrorist groups.“Do we have enough information that can be made public about the tests – the legal tests – before the administration decides, unilaterally, to take action against citizens overseas?” Mitchell asked.

“I fully support targeted operations that have been carried out,” King replied.“I think the president has done the right thing.”

“I’m not trying to minimize this, but I think there’s been a lot of liberal hand-wringing going on,” he continued.“We’re engaged in a war.”

King said that there is nothing moral in not taking action against an imminent threat to the United States because “we wanted to feel good about ourselves.” He added that, during the Civil War, every combatant was an American citizen and no court order was required to kill Confederate soldiers on the battlefield.

King concluded by saying that he felt that if an American citizen were to join Al Qaeda and engage in terrorist operations,“that makes it all the worse.”

There's an atmosphere of Constitutional disregard permeating our country.'They' don't come out and say "fcuk the constitution", the smart ones don't anyway, they just push it's boundaries back incrementally. With liberals providing oversight, and liberals disseminating information, nearly all levels of protection have been breached, they can seize power, little by little, without alarm and with the full cooperation of the Moron Coalition. The coalition has been told "you are the future, they are the past, old is bad, young is good." Once their overly hormonalized ego's have been sufficiently stroked, they march along arm and arm, chanting the mantras, eagerly jumping into the cauldron.
