    Interstate 4 Transformation = Increased Taxes and More Gridlock

    in Politics

    FACT.....I-4 Transformation is NOT about relieving gridlock and improving transportation.  It is all about political money for the special interest cronies, higher taxes and higher cost of living for working Americans



    I-4 Tolls Violate Florida Constitution
    I-77 Lawsuit
    Opposition to Toll Taxes Nationwide
    Modern Day Highwayman


    Alternative Funding for Transportation


    Alternative sources of funding – if needed.  The following sources of highway revenues would have no new collection costs associated with them and do not limit access to the most efficient highways. 



    Increase gas tax.  Compare the increased revenues of a 2¢ per gallon vs. 2¢ toll tax.
    Annual Motor Vehicle Registration Fee/Tax.  A once a year flat “highway tax” of $5.00 for every registered vehicle.  Calculate the net increase in highway revenues for a onetime annual fee/tax.
    Tourist tax allocation.  Tourism has a major impact on traffic and vice-versa.  Allocate a portion (5%) of the tourism tax revenues to the highway fund.  This also promotes tourism by making travel easier and less expensive for the tourist.
    Rental car tax allocation.  Rental cars have a major impact on traffic.  Allocate a portion (5%) of the taxes assessed to rental cars to the highway fund.
    A Portion of state/local sales tax should be allocated to transportation.  The state/local economy drives sales tax revenues.  Transportation of people and goods & services has a significant impact on local sales activity.  Thus, an impact on sales tax revenues.

    Stop Child Abuse Now (SCAN) - 1086

    in Self Help

    Tonight's special guest guest is Chuck Prinzen from Fairfield California, a survivor and activist who, as an educator, has worked with youth for many years. His current project, Me Inc Now, is being developed to offer guidance to teens (and their parents). Chuck says whet he survived "cycles of life," and says his story of abuse is no different than many others who have experienced abuse, the same torment, pain, feelings of loneliness and despair. "My journey from nothingness to a fulfilling life was not altered by one specific event," he writes, "but a series of events over many years, change came one thought at a time. It was not till I was older that I could clearly see the past; they say that hindsight is twenty-twenty, mine was not, it was blurry." He goes on, "The first step to seeing the past clearly was when a kindhearted gift of love was given to me by a stranger." Chuck's principal goal to help instill self-worth, self-esteem, and self-respect in today's youth, and that's that Me.Inc.Now (me expressing I need change now) is all about! The mission of Me.Inc.Now is to instill self-worth, self-esteem, and self-respect in today's youth. A brighter future can be achieved by incorporating cultural change in our youth of today through understanding lessons of the past to bridge the ever growing generation gap. Change is built upon a foundation of communication, listening, and love. Me.Inc.Now is committed to inspiring positive thoughts and breaking cycles of anger and resentment that prevent young individuals from being the best version of themselves. "I am thankful for learning that “love” is most the powerful tool in my emotional toolbox," Chuck writes, no more sorrow and loneliness, no more bruises, no more pain, no more fear.

    Stop Child Abuse Now (SCAN) - 1085

    in Self Help

    Tonight's special guest is Jay Lore from Laurel. Maryland, child abuse survivor and author  of the book "Sometimes You Lose, Sometimes You Learn: How I went to a party one night for twenty years and lived to tell about it." Jay is transgendered from woman to man, and agrees this was a part of his recovery, of "being comfortable living inside his own skin." That wasn't always the case. "I was 4 years old when it started, I don't know at what age the physicality stopped. I was 32 when I first spoke it out loud to someone." Because of the abuse, Jay turned to drugs early on. "I did my first drugs at age 11. LSD, to be exact. It escalated from there. In group my councilor used to get me to read my drug list because it was so extensive and there were things she'd never heard of. There were three suicide attempts. "I was a cutter. I loved the feel of the blade, the sting as it pierced my skin, the pain told me I was able to feel .. something. I lost my kids." Eventually Jay called an 800 drug line. That was in 1987, and Jay's been clean now for over 28 years. "I've been telling my story every chance I get," he says, "to anyone who will listen and some who don't want to hear it." He offers his book for free. Jay now lives with his oldest daughter and her family. He attends and serves at church faithfully. "It's about reaching that one someone that needs to hear my story as only I can tell it. To get that one to realize there is hope and love and light. And most importantly, that they need never walk alone again."

    Stop And Frisk: Citizens Fight Back With A Lawsuit Against Police

    in Women

    Have you ever been pulled over by police and made to get out of the car? Have you ever been "patted down" for weapons, in other words, frisked? Have you ever been ordered to pull down your pants and spread the cheeks of your posterior? Unwanted touching is sexual assault, and yet police have been allowed to inflict this kind of abuse on citizens with no consequences. Refusal to submit can lead to further abuse, arrest, even killing. Citizens in Chicago are fighting back, with a lawsuit against the police for racially motivated "stop and frisk" procedures in which there is no probable cause for being stopped and no reports even filed of the incidents. In the city of Baltimore the people are rioting int he streets and across the nation, victims of police brutality are boiling over when officials refuse to punish acts of violence and assault committed by police officers. Right thinking people are coming together to remove bullies with a badge from positions of authority. Join with those who are standing up, speaking out and fighting back and will not stop until the practice of police abuse of citizens ends.
