    You're right, why bother with history when you have "common knowledge?" I was never worked up, were you?

    You're exactly right. The Republicans entire philosophy on spending can be summed up in your last sentence, with no room for debate since it is "pretty much accepted" (by whom? how many people were sampled? where are these numbers coming from?) There are far more than 2 or 3 D's who did/will/may vote against it.

    Yes, she is a Republican, in name. And I know she has claimed she has the votes. And as you know, all politicians are always honest. The votes are on flsenate.gov (SB 1212). You can find them there, its all public record.

    Your first sentence and last sentence in the first paragraph are both arguable. Look at the committee votes so far, and you will know what party is trying to pass this, and what party is trying to block it. So, I guess I just told you

    Isnt it ironic that the "mass-transit friendly Democrats" are the very same Democrats who are blocking SunRail?
  6. ^ You're right, Yon Hall is on the east side of the stadium, but hasnt been a residence hall for almost 15 years. http://www.housing.ufl.edu/housing/about_history.html#yon Although the article says it was funded by the Athletic Dept, not the school itself. The Athletic Dept uses private money on many things, so I'd be interested to know what the public/private monies spent on the hall actually were.
  7. You are wrong. No public money has been used to build any part of the Swamp. Bright House Stadium is ok for UCF football, but inadequate for major college bowl games.
  8. Tallahassee comes in 4th on the list as worst cities in America to find jobs. http://www.myfoxtampabay.com/dpp/news/loca..._florida_031309 (pdf link included in above page for complete listings) Why do you think this is? Is it just the fact that the massive amounts of state employees here are holding on to their jobs as opposed to constantly changing positions as they did in the past? Is it the fact that COT and Leon County leaders (read Bill Proctor) refuse to bring more industry/business to this town that so goes the state goes Tallahassee's employment opportunities? Discuss.

    1212 is being heard in the Senate Transportation Committee now. If anyone is online now and wants to watch the committee meeting, here's the link. Click on the "Watch Broadcast" next to Transportation. http://www.flsenate.gov/Session/index.cfm?...amp;Tab=session

    haha no, but everything is looking good up here. Almost done.

    The commuter rail looks like it may have an easier "track" this year (ok, corny, I know). http://blogs.orlandosentinel.com/news_poli...ets-a-favo.html Its a good thing Sen. Gardiner is chairing the Committee on Transportation, and that he has some clout as a freshman senator.

    haha no. There has been a lot of negotiating/talking about this project during the "off season." Dockery is trying to get what she wants out of it, which will likely be that it is named the "Paula Dockery Commuter Rail System."
