The Collins Center for Public Policy* has provided a guide to the many amendments that will be on Florida ballots this year. Each amendment has its own page with a synopsis, history, pros and cons. It is an objective guide to what the amendments are, what they might mean and the history of why they have been added to our ballots.

*Named after Gov. LeRoy Collins (served 1955-61), the nonprofit Collins Center for Public Policy was established in 1988 to seek out creative, nonpartisan solutions to Floridas toughest issues. Our work exemplifies Governor Collins desire for objective analysis and his vision for a better Florida. http://collinscenter.org/
The first round of voter purging wrongly informed hundreds of legal voters in Florida that they were ineligible to vote. Governor Rick Scott seems to be planning a second round. Can you sign our petition that lets Governor Scott and Secretary of State Ken Detzner know that Floridans are against any measures that would prevent eligible voters from voting?
That's why I signed a petition to Governor Rick Scott, which says:
"Governor Rick Scott and Secretary of State Ken Detzner,
Please do not interfere with fair and legal voting in the State of Florida. Misleading voters who have the legal right to vote into believing that they do not is wrong and unpatriotic. Any manipulation of a voter's rights is underhanded and against the principles that our American democracy was built upon. Please cease and desist these illegal practices."

Got stung on the face by one this afternoon. Right next to my nose, just below the eye.
I swell when I get stung, so my husband hustled me down to the walk in clinic. They shot me up with prednisone and benadryl which stopped the swelling, but my entire face still hurts. My TEETH hurt. My ear hurts.
At least my husband sprayed the nest before he took me to the clinic, so that nest is DEAD.
I'm headed to a Benadryl induced nap. Later.
On the Alex Wagner Show (Alex is off today) it was used as the banner to introduce a story about campaign finance!
No link - just now on air. Maybe it will be on a video later.
When I first saw it, I expected a Tea Bagger type comment - it had all the indications. Home made, poor color choices, American flag.
But then I realized all the words were spelled correctly and the meaning was completely against Tea Party types:
for whoever put this sign up!
