Jobs and Wages
“Previous governors have said job growth alone was the path to prosperity. But Florida’s families have learned the hard way that’s simply not true. Working longer and harder for less is all that these empty promises have delivered for Florida’s workforce. When a mother or father has to work three jobs to put food on the table and a roof over their family’s head, something is terribly wrong.”
I cannot even give a reasonable response to this statement. Where in the US Constitution does it state that it is Government’s responsibility for the individual or family? It doesn’t – but that is a staunch platform in the Communist Manifesto. How many are working three jobs? Show us the numbers. He also throws around the term ‘living wage’, calling for raising the minimum wage to $15 – an economic loser. Who would pay the higher wage – business owners with a appreciable level of unskilled workers, meaning someone would lose a job to pay for Mr Greene’s charity. Changing our education system has merit but needs details.
“His vision for Florida prioritizes public education and ensures that every student in our state receives a world-class education. He is committed to giving educators a well-deserved raise. And he will stop the flow of public dollars to private and charter ‘schools with no rules.’”
Educator’s getting a raise while failing to educate does not help the child. Charter and Private schools have a reputation for costing less as in Washington when Barack Obama killed the school voucher system for good students. It was reported that the public school costs $11,000 per student, the charter school $8000 per student. Raising teacher salary only means Teacher unions donating to their favorite benefactors, Democrats.
“Sadly, only 54% of Florida’s third graders can read at grade level. Things only get worse: 64% of high school graduates aren’t proficient readers…and only 19% of that same group of students can perform grade-level mathematics. Florida is failing our students and slamming closed the door to future success.
That’s why Jeff supports two years of full-time Pre-K to prepare kids to learn when they hit elementary school – and increased resources so that they leave the K-12 system prepared for whatever is next.”
Aren’t those failing to teach our children the very ones Jeff wants to be paid more? Adding another year of to the educational system only smacks of more taxes and more donations to Democrats from Teacher Unions.
Criminal Justice Reform
“Too many Floridians are languishing in jail, leading to lost wages, lost jobs and broken families. As governor, Jeff Greene will work to expand civil citations over criminal ones. He will reduce penalties for non-violent crimes. And he will invest in diversion programs to help build people up – not lock them away.
Jeff will also reform the bail-bond system, which is unfairly applied. And he’ll work to eliminate private prisons that are mismanaged and not focused on rehabilitating inmates. Speaking of rehabilitation, Jeff will work to expand access to drug treatment programs and sentencing reform. That way we will help, not criminalize, those with addiction and mental health issues.”
Sir, people are in prison because they broke the law. What part of that do you not understand? “Invest in diversion programs” means more taxes and spending.
Standing Up To Trump on Immigration
“Donald Trump has taken our country hostage with dangerous rhetoric that is not only unacceptable, it’s un-American. He has sided with violent white supremacists. He has called Mexican immigrants “rapists.” And he has torn immigrant children from their parents.
Trump is ripping families apart by deporting good men and women who have been positive members of their communities for decades. He should be clearing a path for their citizenship instead.
Trump’s separation of infants and children at the southern border is a human rights violation and an international embarrassment. He made an executive order supposedly to end the separations. But in reality, he doesn’t show a commitment to family reunification. The president has done nothing to end the inhumane treatment of immigrants under his “zero tolerance” policy.”
The first paragraph is all lies. Trump never sided with ‘violent white supremacists’. Trump never called immigrants ‘rapists’ except immigrants that committed rape – and tearing children from their parents if the enforcement of a law passed by Democrats. He refers to children thrown in cages – an action taken during the Obama administration.
“He will work to ban bullying of students based on sexual orientation and gender identification while Donald Trump and his Education Secretary Betsy DeVos won’t.”
What the heck is he talking about? Anybody?All of the above must have been written by MSNBC as it qualifies as the biggest batch of propaganda since my research began. He is worse than Chris King. He can get away with it because Liberals don’t look to see if a person if telling the truth.
Women’s Rights and The Right To Choose
“But when Jeff becomes governor, he will fight for a woman’s right to choose and will veto any bill that infringes upon that right. He will also reject any legislation that threatens to defund Planned Parenthood and the critical health care that Planned Parenthood provides. He will work to repeal state funding for crisis pregnancy centers, which pedal dangerous misinformation about safe and legal family planning options.
Wages also are an important issue for women. Florida women make 87 cents for every dollar that men earn, and that gap is even wider for women of color. Jeff will make closing the wage gap a priority. He will ensure that workplace discrimination, sexual harassment and coercion are not tolerated. To learn more about his economic policies, click here.”
So Mr Greene is full bore for Abortion, even to the point of doing away with crisis pregnancy centers. Gee, what a great guy! “Which pedal dangerous misinformation about safe and legal family planning options” is propaganda. And if the voter does some research he or she can find why there is a pay gap and it has nothing to do with discrimination. This character is making me sick.
Common Sense Gun Safety Solutions
“From Travon Martin to the Pulse nightclub and the tragic shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, Florida has long been at the center of the gun control debate. But while politicians talk, more lives are being senselessly lost to gunfire. Jeff will take on the NRA (National Rifle Association) to make sure that Floridians’ lives and safety come first.
The tragedy at Stoneman Douglas spurred Floridians—especially students—to demand action on gun safety. State lawmakers took a long-overdue first step by raising the age to purchase all guns from 18 to 21, raising the waiting period for purchases to three days, and outlawing the use of bump stocks. But Jeff Greene knows that more needs to be done to keep Florida’s schools and communities safe.”
The weapon used at Parkland was purchased legally, Mr Greene. The NRA is a national gun club and had nothing to do with the perpetrator or the crime. Mr Greene should admit that posting a school as a ‘gun-free zone’ only means the evil person will not be stopped until someone is killed. What more needs to be done, Mr Greene?
Protecting Our Environment
“Jeff knows global warming is affecting Florida. As a resident of Palm Beach County, he experiences it himself firsthand. Rising sea levels are already bad. And they’re only going to get worse, unless we can come up with a solution…fast.”
Enough with the global warming and rising sea levels hysteria. I’m from Missouri, show me!
