I have to start by thanking Sue Woltanski, the Democratic Women’s Club of Florida, Trish McGrath and NOW for cranking up the publicity around the issue of female high school students health forms. You all helped force the FHSAA to back up! I know many of you sent emails to them to express your feelings on this issue. I was copied on a few and they were quite clear! Thank YOU! Can we relax? Hell No! There is plenty more to pay attention to!

For instance, the continuing effort to defund Public Education. HB1 will take more money away from our public schools. (Florida is ranked 42nd in per student funding) IN Monroe County alone we could lose about $900 per student in state funds. But education is not their goal, indoctrinating, brainwashing and grooming is the goal. Heaven forbid we should arm them with the truth, or facts about our country!

And even worse, the new GUN legislation is being sold as new “safety standards” and they still want armed teachers in schools. No wonder real, devoted teachers are leaving Florida. (Teacher pay in Florida is 47th out of 50 states.)


Here is a comment from Kareen Abdul-Jabbar regarding Ron DeSantis’ disdain for the Florida Constitution. “Ron DeSantis knows he’s violating Florida’s constitution, but he does it anyway because he knows no one in the state has the guts or integrity to defy him. He knowingly breaks the law for his own political gain, ousting anyone who opposes him, whether prosecutors or school board members. Still, he has the nerve to have people arrested for voter fraud at gunpoint DeSantis’ crime is much worse, yet who will arrest him?
This is the man who would be president. Drain the swamp? He IS the swamp.”

Our Democracy is still under assault. But this time from within. These traitors want to burn everything down and do not care about anyone or anything but their own power and ability to make the news.

President Biden was not intimidated by these bullies and called them on their lies. It was genius! We must continue to do just that. Call them out like we did with the FHSAA and their bogus “health” forms!
