  1. Tallahassee has a crime problem and the one person who could unlock the do nothing mentality is also one of the people who caused it.

    Until City Commissioner Curtis Richardson makes a move to do a search for a nationwide search for a city manager who will focus on the crime problem, clean house, and make a difference he is not doing his job that he was elected to do and took an oath to do.

    Why is Curtis Richardson so important?
    He is one of the three who unwisely voted in the present city manager who is simply a pawn to the long corruption. The other two are commissioners who voted to put us in this position one is in federal prison and one has recently been indicted on 23 federal charges.

    Until Mr Richardson wakes up he is a coward and a political pawn himself and the inmates are running the asylum. His lack of leadership is feeding our crime problem.

  2. Biden, Harris, the Democrat Party, 17 RINOs and those that voted for them are directly to blame for the rise in crime and drugs flowing into the United States. The Southern border is wide open. Anyone can walk into our Country. Biden is sending airlines to pick up illegal immigrants.

    Biden and Harris should be impeached, repeatedly, for purposely harming our Country for political gain. “God, Country, Corps” as we say in the Marine Corps, isn’t the way Biden thinks. Biden’s priorities: flood the country with dependent immigrants/future democrat voters, get some ice cream and watch Matlock.

    Biden, Harris, the Democrat Party and 17 RINOs passed a $1.7 trillion-dollar spending bill that PROHIBITS any money being used to close off the Southern Border. The gigantic flow of illegal immigrants, many of which are prisoners, criminals and drug dealers, is by design because Biden and the Democrats see a political gain. The flow of drugs is also acceptable to Biden, Harris and the Democrats.

    You cannot vote for Democrats and expect any reduction in crime, inflation, drug use or welfare. Tallahassee liberals better wise up and think about the future. Liberal politicians are spending so much you can expect to pay a lot more taxes.

    How about the U.S Post office…$4.9 billion net loss in 2021 and the new spending plan includes $9.6 billion to buy electric cars to deliver mail. A Democrat will never solve the problems the Post Office faces. It shouldn’t be much longer before taxes take the majority of everyone’s income.

    Rubio, Scott, Dunn and the others that make up “The Washington Generals”/Republican Party are more than happy to simply hide behind saying they didn’t vote for the spending bill. Even though they did nothing to sound the alarm earlier in the year when a proper bill/budget could have been negotiated.

    I think the problem is the low-information voter buys off on our politicians B.S. They think because a politician introduced a Bill that something serious has been accomplished. The Democrats defeated Hershal Walker in part by attacking him for getting his girlfriend an abortion. Abortion is the Key Stone of the Democrat party. Democrats love abortion yet they successfully attack Walker for paying for one.

    So good luck liberal voters. Enjoy your increased taxes, inflation, interest rates, crime and drug use. You children have no future. And 2024’s elections will not change a thing. You can bet The Washington Generals will screw that election up, too. Until Republicans start playing to win, we are all screwed.

  4. The link in regards to the 107,000 Americans dead from OD’s links to an A.P. artical. Reporting from the woke, leftist, in the tank for Democrats is at best very unreliable for anyone seeking the truth.
    My take on the A. P. numbers is 107,000 X 3 = 321,000 dead Americans.
    And even there I am likely low balling the truth. Given what you know already about the A. P. , the fentenal, and meth coming in from the Biden/Harris southern border I hope you understand where I am coming from.
