    Interstate 4 Tolls Violate Florida State Constitution

    in Politics

    Americans across the country must work together to stop the quadruple taxation and foreign control of our Interstate Highway System. We must not allow our national highway infrastructure to be sold-off to foreign corporations like Cintra.

    The Tolling of Interstate 4 is being done with "Public Private Partnerships". 



    Public Private Partnerships violate the Florida State Constitution.  Public Private Partnerships are the collusion of government and the private sector (see below).  Federal funding is being used for I-4 and the Wekiva Parkway Toll Road.  
    Florida SR 408 Toll Taxes equate to a $2.00+ gallon gas tax.  Toll taxes equate to highway robbery, AND they increase our cost of living and harm our national security.  The Interstate Highway system was designed as part of our national defense and here it is being sold off.  We must unite and stop this.

    American Infrastructure ....AKA Corruption Boulevard

    in Politics

    American Infrastructure - Highway Robbery!


    Toll Roads.....Taxation without representation


    "Article on FDOT project to connect the Jacksonville East I-295 (Buckman Bridge) bypass to I-95 and extend capacity by Tolling Express Lanes.  (There is loads of real estate available from original development)"


    "Of note last paragraphs .. Local Resident questioned why "they" couldn't simply make it a "free"way as Federal Tax Dollars pay 75% of the bill anyway."


    "The FDOT response" "Through those studies (by road engineers) and working with the Federal Highway Administration, the determination was made that the best option for expanding capacity would be express lanes."


    "My Cynical Opinion refers me to the Florida Investigative Reporter Eric Barton's story of how the Governor brought in Mr. Poole & the Reason Foundation (?) to "plan" roadway expansion as the real cause for the decision to toll our system of "free"ways."  http://fcir.org/2014/09/14/floridas-toll-lane-boom/

    Response from Terri Hall....Yep, Bob Poole is behind all of it. Why would government turn down a revenue stream they don’t have to ask permission for and that voters can’t control?

    LIVE Interview with Christopher Dancel, CEO - IV Pitstop, Inc.

    in Entertainment

    Media Nite Radio welcomes to the airwaves CEO, Christopher Dancel of IV Pitstop, Inc.  We will discuss this new inventive way to replenish the body on the go for extreme athletes


    Mr. Dancel is an avid Superbike Track Day enthusiast and has attended many track days in California. During these events he, frequently found that staying hydrated was quite difficult—consuming enough liquids to prevent dehydration left him feeling bloated, which was extremely uncomfortable in the tight leather protective suit.


    On a particularly hot day at Big Willows in Lancaster, the combined heat from his bike and the reflective heat from the asphalt was extremely tolling. He moved into the pits in attempt to cool off and reenergize. As he sat in a chair, rehydrating from the ride, a solution occurred to him: IV rehydration.


    Through his experience a Police K9 Handler, he was familiar with the IV rehydration process; the method is used to relieve officers who endure heat exhaustion on the job. To determine whether this alternative method would work at racing events, he consulted with a close friend and physician, then tried the method at his next racing event. The result: he felt more comfortable physically and did not suffer from dehydration symptoms he encountered at previous races. Thus, IV Pit Stop was created.

    The Great American Highway Robbery aka America For Sale

    The American Toll Road....... The Great American Highway Robbery aka America For Sale American Politicians Selling Off American Highway Infrastructure to Foreign Corp. American Automobile Assocation Abandons their Members at the Toll Booth. Call AAA 407-444-7000 America for Sale to the Highest Bidder Public Private Partnerships-Collusion of the Government and the Private Sector. Stop I-95, I-4 and I-75 Tolls True Cost of Toll Roads to Every American True Cost of Toll Roads to Our Economy True Cost of Toll Roads to National Security True Cost of Toll Roads to Emergency Services True Cost of Toll Roads to Law Enforcement Key Articles
    Reason Foundation - Give me a Break. Alexander is Right....Toll road contracts are set up as public-private partnerships, which are not the same thing as privatization. Public-private partnerships (PPPs) result in government-sanctioned monopolies granted to one or more favored companies, essentially crony capitalism. Copied from http://reason.org/blog/show/alexanders-concerns-over-tolling-ar President Obama’s proposed budget shows the administration’s commitment to funding transportation and infrastructure. But while the numbers look good for roads and bridges over the short term, critics say the document lacks a long-term funding solution and gets off track in areas such as sharing highway money with rail and expanding the cross-border trucking program.  http://www.landlinemag.com/Story.aspx?StoryID=25032 "On this day, within South Africa, no roads should be privatised." http://www.citizen.co.za/citizen/content/en/citizen/local-news?oid=362309&sn=Detail&pid=334&Marchers-will-take-down-e-toll-gantries--nicely--

    For Women Veterans, the Battle Continues

    in Lifestyle

    On, Veteran’s Day, we Americans pause for moments of silence, listen to bells tolling and guns firing and remember the deaths of thousands of our troops in Iraq and Afghanistan (let alone wars of the more distant past). It’s a day of meditation and sadness–but it must also be a day for feminism and activism.
    For too many women veterans, homecoming represents a whole new battlefield–one strewn with warriors suffering from homelessness, mental disorders and a still-rankling sexism.
    Sometimes the sexism is as simple as a lack of tampons in the bathrooms at the VA hospitals–a small yet definitive reminder that women remain on the fringes of the care the Veterans Affairs department provides. Other times it takes the form of a discriminating policy for diagnosing post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), a scarcity of VA homeless shelters that offer separate housing for women, and the  devastating rate of sexual assault within military ranks.

    AAA Abandons American Automobile Motorists

    in Politics

    Per AAA "Mission includes protecting and advancing freedom of mobility and improving travel safety"  If that is true..Where is AAA on Interstate Toll Taxes and Public Private Partnerships of our Public Infrastructure? The fact is AAA has abandon the American Motorist.   It is time for the American Motorist to abandon AAA. The NRA is out there fighting to protect our Second Amendment and the rights of the American gun owners. The American Automobile Association - aka - AAA is nowhere to be found when it comes to protecting the American Freeway, the American Motorists or the American Truck Driver. AAA is completely silent on the issue. AAA claims to be against tolling taxes, but they do nothing to help block or defeat the massive takeover of our public infrastructure. AAA is completely silent on the issue. Maybe AAA is in collusion with our corrupt government and is working against the American Motorist and the American Truck Driver in support of political friends and foreign corporations? What game is AAA really playing? AMERICAN MOTORISTS MUST SEND A LOUD MESSAGE TO AAA We Will ABANDON AAA JUST LIKE AMERICANS ABANDONED AARP! AAA has over 50 million members. Call AAA today!
