How the 'Save the Internet Act' Makes the American Dream an American Nightmare for Small Businesses

March 27, 2019 - 7:15am

Jeff Bezos, Bill Gates, Steve Jobs. Although they are well known today, they all started on the same level playing field. They were all small business owners striving to succeed. During the creation of their respective companies, the Internet was wide-open, enabling their creativity and innovations, and allowing them to embody and exemplify the “American Dream.” Be innovative, work hard, get others to believe in you, and you can achieve great success. Fast forward to today and the Save the Internet Act being pushed by Democrats is threatening that same American Dream.

Over the last several years, Florida’s property insurance consumers have experienced some of the largest rate hikes of any group in the country, and it’s not because of extreme hurricanes or floods.

Supreme Court Needs to Stay at Nine justices; Dems’ Court-Packing Plan Is All Wrong

March 20, 2019 - 4:00pm
America’s institutions are far from perfect. But over the past two centuries, they have provided a framework for our nation to become the most dynamic, most vibrant, and most exceptional nation in all of human history.
At this moment though, our institutions are suffering a crisis of confidence as families fragment and communities crumble. And most Americans view every branch of government with disdain.

Amendment 4 Needs Clarity, in Spite of What You Hear from the Media and Proponents

Shameful Spending Part of an Abusive Union Relationship

March 20, 2019 - 9:00am
It’s time to stop applauding the efforts of union-funded special interests -- masquerading as “teachers” --- working to deny students the opportunity to pursue their dreams. 
We all have fond memories of a teacher who changed our lives. The FEA knows this and is exploiting our love for teachers to bully legislators and suppress the will of families for one reason: MONEY. Specifically, the money they collect from hard-working Florida teachers. Now they are using this money to run a self-proclaimed “six figure campaign” against Florida families.

Betting the White House on President Donald J. Trump

February 16, 2019 - 7:00am

Does anyone recognize the Democrat Party anymore?

It is not the party of John F. Kennedy any longer.  In fact, it has become a platform for extremist voices to amplify their message of far-left ideology that was once considered taboo even to the most liberal activist within their party.

Millennials Are Environmentalists but We're Also Realists about Energy

February 5, 2019 - 8:30am

Coddled. Delicate. The “tea cup generation” that doesn’t know or appreciate where things come from, takes more than it gives back and must be handled with extra care.

As a millennial, born in 1997, those are my generation’s stereotypes.

Recently, a friend’s father said environmentalism was my generation’s new religion, that millennials wander aimlessly looking for a cause. That cause, I was told, is defending Mother Earth.
