  1. What could be more wholesome and righteous than moms for liberty? You might as well be against the daisies on grannies apron…

  2. Even though I have a Concealed carry Permit, I have yet to carry it on me. If things keep going the way they are, I might start Carrying it. I’ll just have to decide which one to carry.

    How our Florida Governments handle Gambling in Florida and Leon County really baffles me. Several Months ago Leon County Raided and Shut Down two Internet Cafe’s, one just as you enter Woodville at Oak Ridge Rd. and one out Appalachee Parkway across from the old Mom & Dad’s Restaurant. 3 Days later they were BOTH back open for Business and both Parking Lots were FULL. The only Signs they have are the Neon “OPEN” Signs.

  3. Best recent edition to TR is Terry Ryan. Citizens, FDEP, city and county governments should listen to this man. He has a wealth of knowledge and could make a difference in our water quality among other issues. Everyone should listen to this broadcast and hopefully after the broadcast TR will give a full report.

    Thanks, Leon County Democratic Party as if being a mom for liberty is a bad thing? If that’s the totality of your work product you have a lot of work to do. How about a platform, a plan, an explanation of the Democratic Party failures with Biden, and here is some good advice you should put more energy into changing Curtis out as he is the bundled contribution contributor special interest agent that needs to be sent into retirement. But thank you for the free publicity for Laurie.

  4. More criminals should “Man-Up” and follow this guys lead, “ In Madison County a man died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound”. He is the only person, elected or citizen, to take a positive step to save the taxpayer’s money. Thanks Gee
