It looks like Florida will be modifying Stand Your Ground. Specifically to make it void if someone starts a confrontation, like with an unarmed kid, and then shoots the *target* in a Dirty Harry fantasy scenario, commonly known as pulling a Zimmerman.

Is there any doubt that Dirty Harry wannabes are emboldened to murder people when they get their CCP? Is Stand Your Ground the New White Hood?

“I was emotional about governor Christie,” she wrote in a diary entry she provided that is dated May 17, 2013. “I thought he was honest. I thought he was moral. I thought he was something very different. This week I found out he’s cut from the same corrupt… Read full post »

Medicare was established in 1966. It was many years in the making, and was strongly opposed by conservatives, who warned that the government program would lead to socialism in America. Since Ronald Reagan was/is God, I assume that means we are now a Socialist Country, since not only is i… Read full post »
Diana Nyad post 2011 Cuba Swim
Diana Nyad has been heavy on my mind.
Yesterday morning, at 64 years old, she started what she says will be her final attempt to swim from Cuba to the Florida Keys.
I was involved in a minor capacity during her 2011 attempt, and… Read full post »
I wish I was broken up about leaving Key West because of the cool factor. It is very cool. I love the houses in Old Town, the ones that are restored to glory next to the ones that are funky messes, next to the ones all boarded up. I really like… Read full post »

We left Great Exuma on January 18th for Staniel Cay. We met friends who were already anchored there. It ended up being one of the highlights of our trip.
Thunderball Grotto was amazing. The entrance to the cave is underwater unless you go at low tide. We timed it… Read full post »

Black Point Settlement has no marina. They are a true Bahamian village. Not at all "touristy" but welcoming and friendly. We enjoyed our few days there, and made some new friends...

Left Bimini Dec. 19th and slogged across the Great Bahama Bank. It was strange to be in consistent 12' water when you draw 6'. Seas were 3' - 4' and wind 15 - 20 knots from the east. We decided to anchor near the North West Shoal, where it was shallow.… Read full post »

Because the blogs won’t load. Because I have tried to rate Myriad and James Mark countless times in the last while, and the rates do not stick. Because comments do not stick, either.

I laughed out loud at this comment. It was written after a post very early on during OWS after a police officer pepper sprayed a peaceful protester in NYC. There was a comparison to the treatment received by the Tea Party demonstrators who received a free pass for their… Read full post »
When did torture become a good thing? Why would Republican presidential candidates embrace the use of torture to win voter support?
