Very well put..Why don't we ask all in politics to do there job at half the pay which would help the economy and see if they are all in it for the people or for their own wealth..........
How about we educate people on the proper uses of "their" "they're" and "there"?

Do you think it's hard to find a job these days?
How long have you been out of work?
The Obama administration is ready to legalize 12-20 million illegals and
give them work permits. Do you know what is means?
You thought that maybe you can find a job for $10-14 / hour.. huh?
Not anymore ! Those legalized illegals will take that job for minimum wage.
Jobs for American Workers, NOT Illegal Aliens !
Push your state rep to make a change. Sign the Petition.
Once you are registered, go to the "action board" to send FREE faxes now.
They are all typed up and ready to go, you just need to click your mouse to send.
Forward this to everyone you know.
Don't let them ruin your state like they've ruined Arizona.
Not only is this a lie, it is the opposite of the truth. The republicans have pushed to let the illegals stay (for cheap labor) and the democrats have stalled them.
Makes me wonder what happens when you go to the web site, get hacked maybe? After all you are lieing to us so you can not be trusted!

When bush took over he was handed a country with no wars,lots of work for every one. Life was good. 8 years latter over 40.000 factories had shut down or moved out of the USA,2 wars and in hock over our ass. But he did do what he said he would lower tax. If you can't make money then you don't owe tax. He also helped with the cost of a home. Fl has lots of cheap homes now. Let us all enjoy the after mess of bush and his little buddys. ENJOY!

So, obviously, something needs to be done, fast.
But what?
Any suggestions?
What about Scott being mentioned in that now-famous phone call that Walker had with that reporter a week ago? Walker claimed that he was part of a GOP plan involving other governors, including Scott. They decided they would all do the same thing in their states as Walker is doing in Wisconsin. They even went so far as to discuss the idea of planting "troublemakers" at rallies to help bring more negative attention to the cause of the teachers, police, firefighters, etc.
It's pretty much a sure bet that once the Florida house is back in session in two weeks, everything they are trying to do in Wisconsin will also be attempted here.
Can they be stopped?

From what I understand, it was actually those who did not show up to vote that allowed this to happen.
Whatever it was, we better correct it, fast.
This guy thinks he is diabolical and omnipotent, and will stop at nothing to get what he wants.
On the other hand, I would imagine that Scott is paying very close attention to what is going on in Wisconsin and Ohio, especially since his buddy Walker told the world that there was a plot between him and Richard Scott (and several other new governors) to destroy collective bargaining in this country.

You can bet,that Fl will be next. But I don't think the people in Fl has the balls to stand up to it. I sure hope so.
