The Constitution Revision Committee (CRC) is a 37-member commission which convenes every 20 years to review and propose changes to the Florida Constitution for voter consideration.

The CRC will be traveling the State of Florida to listen to input from Floridians about potential changes to the Florida Constitution. All interested persons are invited to attend CRC public hearings and speak to Commissioners about their ideas for revising the Florida Constitution. If you’d like to speak before the CRC at a public hearing, please complete an appearance form and bring your copy to the meeting. Forms will also be available to complete at the meeting location. Appearance forms may not be submitted in advance of a public hearing. Individuals requiring an accommodation to participate in these hearings (such as a sign language interpreter) are requested to notify the CRC five days prior to the scheduled hearing date by email to admin@flcrc.gov or by calling (850) 717-9550.

UPDATE on crisis legislation for bailout…

1 Comment

 

It was reported this evening that the original three page demand from the Bush administration laying out what Bush believed was another slam dunk, has now ballooned to more than 100 pages.  Voting is expected to take possibly Monday, September 29, 2008.

 

Voting to take place with no public hearings, no publication on the net of the actual text of the bill, and no chance for the American people whose money is being stolen to shore up corrupted corporations and companies to voice their opinion or make any demands.

 

The theory put forth by those writing this odious piece of legislation is that if they threaten us enough with not being able to get a home loan, a car loan or credit for small businesses (those worth 5 million minimally) somehow we are all going to suffer.  I think not.

 

If we can’t buy homes, cars and some of this other cheap foreign made crap that fills the shelves in all of our stores, so what?  That might make us unhappy, but it won’t hurt us.  But think about this….If we can’t buy homes, cars or get credit we will still survive.  On the other hand, if THEY can’t sell homes, cars or extend credit, they’ll go broke.  It all goes back to the guys at the top. 

 

We are tough and can survive a depression.  It won’t last long.  The greed is too engrained, the corruption to great to pass up the greatest consumer market in the world.  After all this is supposed to be what this is about, isn’t it?  Those great, wonderful economy boosting free markets that were going to grow the economy at such a rate it would be nearly impossible to keep track of it?

 

I find myself still asking why those in the upper 3% who enjoy those special tax cuts and who more than likely profited from this corruption of the markets, and those who raped and plundered these companies driving them into the ground, and those who knowingly acted unethically and illegally…..why aren’t they being tapped for this bailout?

 

Those who became wealthy or increased their wealth won’t be losing anything.  They’ll still be wealthy.  And we’ll still be struggling to pay for their retention of their wealth.

 

We are being blackmailed plain and simple.  If this bailout isn’t enough to vote the bums out of office…what is?
