Part 2: Bill Posey’s 2017 Constituent Survey

Yesterday’s Part 1 post. Today I pick up commenting on items 9-15 on my Congressman’s survey.

9. Local, state and federal leaders should work with LOCAL BUSINESS AND PROPERTY OScreen Shot 2017-03-22 at 6.55.52 PMWNERS to find solutions that protect the Indian River Lagoon.  

10. NASA should be tasked with a bold new mission for human space flight but it ought not be taxpayer funding of private enterprise or cultural outreach. 

11. I have no clue what this statement means so ask that you explain it or rephrase it: The federal government should create a more competitive regulatory environment to encourage commercial space 

12. Redirecting education dollars to the states to allow School Choice is a great idea and so is abolishing the Department of Education. Let states expand vocational and technical education as they see fit. Let the market in each state drive the need.

13. Yes to canceling billions in payments to U.N. climate change programs and instead of thinking ‘where can we spend,’ think about how you cannot spend it. 

14. Expand no. Reduce and Simplify yes. Reduce and Simplify policy so Veterans have choices to get the help they need without Bureaucratic interference or mandates.  Clean up the Veterans Administration, where expanded spending has done very little to help our troops and has become it’s own bureaucratic nightmare. 

15. Pass a FLAT tax and make Government run on a budget. Get rid of excessive and redundant entitlements and lift the restrictions on American energy. 

Remember: Opportunity for All. Favoritism to None. 

Thank you. 

Oh, and one more thing, Mr. Posey. Be #SassyWithMassie and vote #HellNo on #AHCA tomorrow.

Port Canaveral RAIL vs Country Residents

Tonight I attended the Brevard County Commissioners meeting where many wonderful citizens came out to vehemently voice opposition to the proposed Rail Extension Service. (See an earlier article Port Canaveral: Discover the Networks here.)

Commissioner Jim Barfield proposed a resolution and then citizens who will be greatly affected by the Rail Extension were invited to make their remarks. I used Periscope to broadcast LIVE some of that meeting and have linked the segments here:

Part 1: Brevard County Commission on Port Canaveral Rail 

Part 2: Brevard County Commission on Port Canaveral Rail or 2 

Part 3:  Brevard County Commission on Port Canaveral Authority Rail part 3

I learned tonight that TedLund.com is a great place to read up on the sore problems with the Port Canaveral Authority and the Rail issues, that seem more than severe, expensive, and has left residents wondering who is paying for all of the pie in the sky.

The Dubai Ports World controversy of 2006 is making a comeback, only this time the Arab principal has actually gained control of the container contract for a major U.S. port.  …read more

And this is disturbing news:

==>> Port Authority Responds To Request For Information On Potential Rail Extension Route …read more

  1. How much is this potential going to cost Taxpayers?
  2. How will imminent domain be used for this potential extension route?
  3. How much money has been spent and is there a money trail for pre-and-post extension costs?
  4. Where is the money coming from and who is it going to?
  5. And since there are alleged CLINTON money ties to this Port Canaveral project, isn’t that enough to warrant an investigation of the Port Commission decision making process?

Ask Congressman Bill Posey and Senator Bill Nelson where they stand on the Arab Takeover of Port Canaveral. Then ask the Brevard County Commissioners to take back Port Canaveral Authority before unrealistic tax burdens are heaped upon residents in Brevard County.
