Winning a Bronze Star in the World War II Battle of the Bulge won’t stop Florida’s Fraudster in Chief from removing you from the voting rolls. McClatchy has the latest effort to purge qualified voters from the rolls to help the Republicans to steal elections more reliably.

They don’t care that the last known incident of voter fraud involved a woman named Ann Coulter, who is apparently a celebrity of some kind, and a known Republican. They are going after people who are suspected of voting for Democrats.

The Republicans don’t think they can win honest elections, so they try to remove voters with their changes in the election laws and purges of voter lists.

Locally the smoke is real and caused by a burning swamp on Eglin AFB. Last night it was like the fog came in as visibility was down to a quarter mile in some places [like my house], but one whiff made it obvious it was smoke.

It is fundamentally wrong for swamps to burn.

Are there also mirrors about? Are you sure the smoke is not from Gov. Scott’s efforts to suppress the Democratic vote?

This is awfully reminiscent of 2000. A lot of us back then said, “Never again.” Did we believe our own words?

The Democrats don’t want Floridians to vote in primaries, and Republicans don’t want them to vote in the general, so a lot of Florida Democrats don’t care any more. That’s why I’ve been voting for Green candidates lately … at least they want me to vote.

Debbie Wasserman-Schultz was a real progressive in the Florida legislature, but she was turned to the ‘dark side’ by serving in Congress.
