Mitt Romney for president
Tampa Tribune, by Editorial

Original Article

Posted By:Hazymac, 10/21/2012 12:01:27 PM

Mitt Romney is the man who can lead the nation out of its lingering economic doldrums and restore faith in the United States. A successful executive in the public and private sector, Romney is a committed capitalist who understands that the nation's prosperity is driven by free enterprise, not government. Under President Barack Obama's liberal and inconsistent leadership, the country has limped along, barely a step ahead of another recession. The deficit soared, government expanded and the prospects of more regulations and taxes chilled corporate investment.

Comments:
Not totally unexpected, this endorsement is nonetheless a relief. You can be doggoned sure that the hyperliberal Tampa Bay Times (formerly the St. Petersburg Times) across the Bay will endorse Mr. Potato Head. There's no intelligent life in those editors' offices. I think Romney is going to win Florida.

Another fatal wrong-way crash on I-275
Tampa Tribune, by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: Hazymac- 2/21/2014 3:10:35 PM     Post Reply
For the second time this month, a car heading the wrong way on Interstate 275 in Hillsborough County was involved in a fatal crash. Early this morning, a wrong-way driver from Riverview was killed when he struck a box truck just north of Bearss Avenue, the Florida Highway Patrol said. Two people in the truck received minor injuries. At 2:35 a.m., Chase Kaleb Leveille, 25, was driving a 1993 Honda Civic north in the southbound center lane of I-275, when he crashed head-on into an unloaded rental truck going south, troopers said. Leveille died at the scene, the patrol said.

Ukraine defense minister ignores
repeated phone calls from Chuck Hagel

Ukraine Defense Minister Pavel Lebedev has refused to take multiple phone calls made personally by Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel, the Pentagon said Thursday. "Secretary Hagel has been trying, himself, since early this week," Pentagon press secretary Rear Adm. John Kirby told reporters. Lebedev refuses "to communicate, to accept a phone call" from Hagel or the Pentagon. "We haven´t been able to connect with anybody from the Defense Ministry there in Ukraine," he said. "We´ve been trying pretty diligently here in the Pentagon, we´ve been trying pretty diligently this whole week. I´d say it´s pretty unusual." Perhaps Hagel´s team thinks that

Jailed leader channels Venezuelans’ ire

CARACAS, Venezuela — Leopoldo López, the defiant Venezuelan opposition leader taken into custody Tuesday in front of thousands of anti-government protesters, spent last night in a prison on a military base. But even there, the government couldn’t shut him up. In a prerecorded video message released hours after his arrest, López urged Venezuelans to continue a campaign of “resistance” to force the resignation or recall of President Nicolás Maduro, a goal López calls “the Exit.” Seated on a sofa beside his wife and appealing directly to Venezuelan youth, López told viewers that what the country needed more than ever was

Lessons of World War I

This summer will mark the 100th anniversary of the beginning of World War I, and we should reflect on the “lessons” we have been taught so often on how to avoid another such devastating conflict. Chief among them seems to be the canard that the Versailles Treaty of 1919 that officially ended the war caused a far worse one just 20 years later — usually in the sense of an unnecessary harshness accorded a defeated Imperial Germany. But how true is that common argument of what John Maynard Keynes called a “Carthaginian peace”? Carthage, remember, was truly emasculated after the

The press reports that thousands of Muslims are fleeing killings in Central African Republic, hunted by Christians. (Snip) Their differences are explained away in terms straight out of Oprah: ‘religious bigotry’, ‘lack of understanding’, insufficient ‘love for your country’ etc, instead of what they really are: the vicissitudes of conquest, the maintenance of identity, the lure of greed and the imperatives of survival. This fairytale stuff is peddled because nobody wants to open the real can of worms: regional rivalries, the spread of al-Qaeda in Africa, the collapse of African states or the sordid competition by great powers for diamonds,

Obama’s Foreign Policy: Enemy Action
FrontPage, by Bruce Thornton    Original Article
Posted By: Hazymac- 2/18/2014 6:34:36 PM     Post Reply
It’s often hard to determine whether a series of bad policies results from stupidity or malicious intent. Occam’s razor suggests that the former is the more likely explanation, as conspiracies assume a high degree of intelligence, complex organization, and secrecy among a large number of people, qualities that usually are much less frequent than the simple stupidity, disorganization, and inability to keep a secret more typical of our species. Yet surveying the nearly 6 years of Obama’s disastrous foreign policy blunders, I’m starting to lean towards Goldfinger’s Chicago mob-wisdom: “Once is happenstance. Twice is coincidence. Three times, it’s enemy action.”

Snakebite death of Middlesboro pastor was

MIDDLESBORO — Snake-handling preacher Jamie Coots, who never backed away from his beliefs despite derision, criminal charges and excruciating bites, died Saturday night after being bitten by a rattlesnake during a church service. Family members of Coots, 42, refused medical treatment for him. He was pronounced dead about two hours after the rattler sank its fangs into his right hand. His son said the poison overwhelmed his father within minutes of the bite. "It was the quickest snakebite I ever seen in my life," Coots´ son, Cody, said Sunday. Jamie Coots´ death appears to be the first from a snakebite

The $2.2 Billion Bird-Scorching Solar Project

A giant solar-power project officially opening this week in the California desert is the first of its kind, and may be among the last, in part because of growing evidence that the technology it uses is killing birds. (Snip) BrightSource wants to build a second tower-based solar farm in California´s Riverside County, east of Palm Springs. But the state Energy Commission in December proposed that the company instead use more conventional technologies, such as solar panels or mirrored troughs. One reason: the BrightSource system appears to be scorching birds that fly through the intense heat surrounding the towers, which can

Daniel Mitchell at Cato makes the trite but shockingly simple observation that it is only necessary to stop increasing expenses to balance the budget without raising taxes. (Snip) Being caught on a Ponzi treadmill is no fun. Pretty soon you start throwing even your close associates to the wolves. Anything to live for one more second. Perhaps that is why even Democratic candidates are engaged in the remarkable spectacle of distancing themselves from a program their president supported. They don’t want to be flattened by the rock.

Busch Gardens roller coaster stops mid-ride

TAMPA — Everything was fine on the roller coaster - at first. Every seat was taken on the Cheetah Hunt ride at Busch Gardens at about 2:30 p.m. The 16 people on board, ranging from teenagers to those in their 70s, braced themselves for the rush that comes with defying gravity. Then, unexpectedly, the ride stopped, with the cars about 60 feet up in the air. The ride operator tried to nudge the cars back to their station, but that didn’t work. To make matters worse, a storm was heading toward the park. For one of the few times in

STARKE, Fla. — A man was executed Wednesday night in Florida for raping and killing a 9-year-old boy 18 years ago, a death that spurred the victim´s parents to press nationwide for stronger sexual predator confinement laws and better handling of child abduction cases. Juan Carlos Chavez, 46, was pronounced dead at 8:17 p.m. Wednesday after a lethal injection at Florida State Prison, according to Gov. Rick Scott´s office. Chavez made no final statement in the death chamber, though prison officials said he had submitted something in writing. He moved his feet frequently after the injection began at 8:02 p.m.

Investigators are likely to close the file on Michael Schumacher’s skiing accident in the next few days - according to a report in Germany. After a four-week inquiry newspaper Bild reports French investigators have passed their conclusions to the office of investigating prosecutor Patrick Quincy And, sources say, in all likelihood the file will be closed. That means the makers of the equipment Schumacher was using, the manufacturer of the helmet he was wearing and the authorities who put up signage on the slopes around the rocky off-piste slopes near Meribel will effectively be cleared of any involvement in the

First conservative icon Thomas Sowell turned on Ted Cruz, now it appears that Ann Coulter is souring on the Texas Republican as well. Sowell published two columns this week slamming Cruz for being self-serving. Coulter praised the first of Sowell’s columns in a tweet Wednesday. Later, in an appearance on Fox News’ “Hannity” Wednesday night, Coulter doubled down on her praise of Sowell’s anti-Cruz column: ”I never push anyone else’s column but mine. Today everyone has got to read Thomas Sowell’s article.” During the “Hannity” segment, Coulter attacked tea party groups for being filled with “shysters” and “conmen,” naming specifically the Senate Conservatives

Singer Ted Nugent apologized on Friday for calling President Obama a “subhuman mongrel” last month. “I do apologize, not necessarily to the president, but on behalf of much better men than myself,” Nugent said in a radio interview on “The Ben Ferguson Show." The rocker said he was sorry for using “street fighter terminology of subhuman mongrel,’” and admitted "I did cross the line.” Nugent said he should have used a term such as “violator of his oath, the Constitution” instead. The apology came just a day after Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) urged Nugent to apologize for the remark. “Ted

Sarah Palin has made an endorsement in Texas. She’s backing tea party leader Katrina Pierson over Rep. Pete Sessions. In a Facebook post, Palin notes that Pierson’s “life’s story is full of hardships she has fought to overcome, which taught her firsthand the importance of self-reliance, hard work, and the blessings of liberty.” One of those hardships includes a 1997 arrest for shoplifting. As the Dallas Morning News reported on Valentine’s Day, “In 1997, five days before her 21st birthday, Katrina Pierson, then named Katrina Lanette Shaddix, was arrested on a charge of theft of greater than $50 and less than $500.” Pierson,

Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, may be the brightest light to adorn the Republican Party in many years. He knows how to make the case for conservative ideas, pointing, for example, to the contrasting fates of Detroit and Houston to illustrate the superiority of conservative policies. So it´s particularly galling to see that rather than train his fire at President Barack Obama and the liberal machine that cocoons him, Cruz has become a one-man wrecking ball against Republicans. His most recent foray into sabotaging his colleagues concerned the debt limit increase. Because Speaker John Boehner sent over a "clean" debt limit bill,

I repeat: I’m not a global warming believer. I’m not a global warming denier. I’ve long believed that it cannot be good for humanity to be spewing tons of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. I also believe that those scientists who pretend to know exactly what this will cause in 20, 30 or 50 years are white-coated propagandists. “The debate is settled,” asserted propagandist in chief Barack Obama in his latest State of the Union address. “Climate change is a fact.” Really? There is nothing more anti-scientific than the very idea that science is settled, static, impervious to challenge. Take

How much more are black people in this country supposed to take? On Saturday, a Florida jury failed to convict Michael Dunn for the callous murder of Jordan Davis. Though he was convicted of three counts of attempted murder and also on a gun charge, a mistrial was declared for the first-degree murder charge. He will face substantial jail time – perhaps up to 75 years on the four charges for which he was found guilty. Prosecutor Angela Corey has also publicly declared her intent to seek retrial on the murder conviction. However, she is the same prosecutor who oversaw the Zimmerman

Listening to pundits talk about the potential 2016 Republican field, you’d be forgiven for forgetting about Rick Santorum. The former senator’s strong second-place showing in 2012 shocked—even scared—the GOP’s kingmakers, who saw in him an abortion-hating firebrand with no chance of beating Barack Obama. So it’s no surprise that today, the party’s mainstreamers are acting like he’s old news, again dismissing a Santorum presidential candidacy. Not that he cares. He’s too busy plotting another possible run at the White House. In recent months, Santorum has gathered his inner circle of longtime advisers to sketch out a presidential campaign. He’s scheduling trips to

FRESNO, Calif.- Federal officials say many farmers caught in California´s drought will receive no irrigation water this year from a vast system of rivers, canals and reservoirs interlacing the state. The U.S. Bureau of Reclamation announced Friday it will continue to monitor rain and snowfall, but at this point there´s not enough water in the Central Valley Project to give water to farmers. Last year, Central Valley farmers received 20 percent of their normal allowance, and that figure is now set at zero percent. This marks the third dry year for the state, and Gov. Jerry Brown last month declared

The Federal Communications Commission is trying to reassure House Republicans it has no plans to restrict the freedom of the press. In a letter released Thursday, FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler told Republican leaders of the House Energy and Commerce Committee his commission “has no intention of regulating political or other speech of journalists or broadcasters.” Wheeler defended new FCC research as the first step toward pinpointing “market barriers” that might affect the “diversity of media voices.” Republicans expressed concern the FCC´s study was an attempt "to control the political speech of journalists” by reviving the Fairness Doctrine, now-extinct rules that required radio and

Is there room for Perry this time, though? Perry, a potential 2016 presidential candidate, will be in Des Moines and Davenport on Feb. 27 and Feb. 28. He will be sitting down with business leaders to discuss a wide range of issues, according to Bob Haus, an adviser in the state.
