    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.

    Mrs Victoria Chitungu serves as the Director at the Moto Moto Museum located in Mbala which is in the Northern Province of Zambia. The Museum houses a collection of artifacts related to Zambian culture, first collected by Canadian priest Jean Jacques Corbeil in the 1940s for study and posterity, were stored in the Mulilansolo Mission until 1964, when they were moved to Serenje, Zambia until 1969, then to Isoka. The current site, a former carpentry and bricklaying workshop, was donated by the Diocese of Mbala in 1972, to serve as a museum. When it opened in 1974, it was named the Moto Moto museum, after French Catholic Bishop Joseph Dupont, nicknamed Moto Moto, who began the White Fathers missionary in northern Zambia, where he worked from 1885 to 1911. Mrs Chitungu joins us to discuss the rich history and artifacts the Meseum offers, the numerous tourist attraction Mbala and the region generally offers & what the Zambian community in the Diaspora can do to promote the area.

    Friday The 13th With The Ghost Town Hunter - Bruce A Raisch

    in Paranormal

    Friday the 13th, what a great day to talk about conspiracy theories, mysteries, dreams and the unknown.


    The incredibly creepy and gruesome case of Elisa Lam, a Canadian tourist who was found in a water tank at the top of the infamous Cecil Hotel, a hotel well known to have housed two serial killers and a myriad of strange deaths and suicides. The facts of the case initially left one almost certain that foul play was involved in this young woman’s death. Then a haunting surveillance video surfaced, showing Elisa in the elevator the night she disappeared.

    An abandoned lifeboat at world’s end


    Bouvet Island is the most isolated uninhabited place on Earth.  It is not Antarctica, but Antarctica is the closest piece of land to the island. Bouvet Island is situated between the tip of Africa and the coldest continent on Earth. It is not the sort of place where it is likely you would find yourself shipwrecked. It is hard for even people who know where it is to find it. How is then that an expedition discovered an abandoned lifeboat on Bouvet Island?


    The unidentified whaler or ship’s lifeboat found abandoned on Bouvet Island on 2 April 1964. The boat bore no identifying marks. There were signs that survivors might have made it to shore, but no trace of them has ever been found.

    Live:Deejay Jamaican icons Kojak and Mama Liza chat live from Jamaica

    in Music

    Kojak (b. Floyd Anthony Perch, kingston, Kingston, Jamaica, began his career chanting on various sound systems under the guise of Pretty Boy Floyd. He adopted the gangster image that had proved successful for Dennis Alcapone and Dillinger.He change stage name to Nigger Kojak. His debut, ‘Massacre’, proved a local hit. In 1978 Dennis Brown had an international hit with the remake of ‘Money In My Pocket’, which was followed by ‘Ain’t That Loving You’, featuring Kojak And Liza performing ‘Hole In De Bucket’. The partnership led to conflicting reports as to the identity of Kojak’s fellow artist, as there were in fact two Mama Lizas, Beverly Brown and Jacqueline Boland. His female partner was always labelled simply as Liza, which hindered the women’s careers,. The duo performed ‘Fist To Fist Rub A Dub’, a tribute to the soft drink Sky Juice, the modest ‘One Thousand Gal’ and the festive ‘Christmas Stylee’. By 1981 Kojak And Liza had become well established and the unprecedented success of ‘Nice Up Jamaica’ was endorsed by the Jamaican tourist board. The song, although on some pressings credited to the duo, was actually a solo from Floyd Perch that verged on the surreal. By 1982 he became known as Papa Kojak and was a featured DJ at the acclaimed Skateland show, recorded live as A Dee Jay Explosion. By 1996,  performing ‘What Time Is It’, was met with enthusiasm. The song was included on his distinguished comeback album of soul cover versions, which featured backing vocals from Nadine Sutherland, J.C. Lodge, Marcia Griffiths and Judy Mowatt. The paucity of female DJ performers has often been criticized, along with the fact that early performances were only in a supporting role. The pioneering efforts of the two Lizas have since been acknowledged on record as influencing the likes of Sister Nancy and Lady Saw.call in 661-467-2407

  • Tombstone Arizona

    in Travel

    We stopped In Tombstone Arizona on the way back from Los Cruces New Mexico. My wife and I had both finished reading a couple of books about Wyatt Earp, Doc Holiday, and the OK Corral.


    So we decided to make the detour and go see it


    First the Bad News, while the parking is free, any attraction you might want to see charges admission


    The Ghost town part of town reminded me to much “Knott’s Berry Farm” and or Calico. I would have preferred a deserted set of buildings and a walking tour


    Again I sort of figured it was a tourist place so was not expecting too much


    The road in / out of town is heavily patrolled so watch your speed


    The Good News 


    We ate at “Big Nose Kate’s Saloon”  the food was quite good , the service was great , the entertainment  was pretty good, and was a neat place to eat and let one’s imagination take over and be there with Doc Holiday, and the others.


    My wife and split a brisket Sandwich and a bowl of chili and each had a “Doc Holiday “to drink (Mr. Pub) but hey indulge me


    They had a gentleman doing some street dancing for tips that while not western was rather interesting to watch


    A lot of the residents are dressed in period clothing which gives the place that western look.


    My wife bought some earrings at a Native American store as souvenirs.


    Tombstone is a neat place to stop and visit , check off the bucket list, eat at “Big Nose Kate’s Saloon” and enjoy a couple of hours to break up that LONG I -10 drive BUT I do not foresee it has my favorite destination site yet
