Where should I start? Horrible traffic, crime, poor schools, corrupt politicians, terrible summer weather, hurricanes, nazi HOA's, postage stamp size lots for the price of an acre anywhere else but CA, illegal aliens jabbering in spanish, and toll roads in every direction. What's to like, the beach that I never get to visit?

That would be good advice. I'm stuck though, I don't want to leave my family. Sometimes it seems worth it though. I actually want to be able to go outside in the summer. When the weather is finally bearable, daylight is shortened too much to do anything with the day.

Free Shoe University. This is going to be my backup med school. I want to go to a place where the beer flows like wine. A place where women wear bikinis year round. Gainesville, you may very well be the place I call home in two years.

Beer flows like wine at all schools. Women wear bikinis year round here, just underneath the clothing. Florida does suck. Although Pensacola isn't bad.

Tyranny by leftwing extremists. In Florida.
*****************************************
8/24/2011

Jerry Buell, a highly respected Florida public
school teacher, voiced his opposition to "same-s*x
marriage" on his personal Facebook account. Now,
the 22-year veteran teacher is fighting for his
right to teach - and Liberty Counsel has come
to his defense! Read the chilling details of
this travesty below - Mat.

When Jerry Buell, last year's "Teacher of the Year" at
Mount Dora High School in Florida, saw that New York had
legalized "same-sex marriage," he did what many people
did. He expressed his disapproval on the Facebook social
media network - on his personal time, his personal
computer, and on his personal page.

Buell commented that homosexuality is wrong and
that seeing two "grooms" kissing on a news story
revolted him.

A former student from his school saw his post, took offense,
and "reported" him to school system officials.

Now, Jerry Buell is fighting for reinstatement!

Citing an ethics code violation pending an investigation,
the Lake County School District responded by taking away
his teaching privileges and reassigning him to administrative
duties.

++Liberty Counsel quickly moved to defend Jerry Buell's
rights!

Liberty Counsel is now representing Mr. Buell and demanding
that he be immediately reinstated with an apology for
violating his First Amendment rights. The school district's
response to Buell's comments is unconstitutional, violating
his right to free speech.

Harry Mihet, Senior Litigation Counsel for Liberty Counsel,
is spearheading Jerry Buell's defense. Here's what our
organization said in a widely-distributed news release:

"Public school teachers are not constitutional
orphans. They, like all Americans, enjoy the
freedom to engage in discourse about matters of
public concern. Mr. Buell is being investigated
and punished for communicating his mainstream
objection to homosexual marriage, an objection
shared by a large majority of his fellow Floridians
who have outlawed homosexual marriage through a
constitutional amendment. If the First Amendment
does not protect Mr. Buell's right to voice his
personal opinion, on his personal time, from his
personal computer, on his personal Facebook page,
then the First Amendment means nothing."

Groups who are pushing "same-sex marriage" and "marriage
equality" are claiming ANY speech that is contrary to their
viewpoint is considered "hate speech" and should be censored.

The Lake County School District School is out of line with
their suspension and treatment of Mr. Buell. This persecution
must stop!

When I think of my Liberty Counsel team, I think of our
constant call for all Americans to display moral courage
in defending their God-given, blood-bought liberties.

Jerry Buell has been a teacher for more than 22 years and
served as the Social Studies Department Chair at Mount Dora
High School. Buell has always been open to students,
including those who identify themselves as being homosexual,
about his conservative principles. But he has never forced
his beliefs on anyone.

His suspension is an attack on the character and
integrity of a gifted educator and his First-
Amendment rights as a United States Citizen!

Please support Liberty Counsel's efforts to bring about a
quick resolution through our defense of Jerry Buell!
Jerry Buell is a gifted educator, a good citizen among many
others who are being persecuted in the name of "political
correctness" by a small number of pro-homosexual activists.

This type of assault on First Amendment rights - and labeling
pro-moral Americans' comments as "hate speech" - is becoming
epidemic in America. Such vicious attacks are creating an
unprecedented number of cases for Liberty Counsel as we
defend persecuted educators and others free of charge.

As I've said before, the reality is that we are
facing powerful and dangerous adversaries on the
battlefield for liberty.

I looked into moving to both Jacksonville and Pensacola. Neither one will do though. Jacksonville is kind of ugly. The only thing going for it is the bases nearby which I could use my retirement benefits. Pensacola is ok, but real close to Alabama and REDNECK good ole boys. I talked to a few of my friends who retired there and they said besides the beach, there really isn't much to do. Maybe I'll move to Colorado Springs. Have the Air Force Base, Mountains, and 4 seasons.

Yep, they have them down here. I think they started out as Taco Caliente. Good, greasy Mexican food ... not ideal for lunch if you share office space with a lady you are trying to impress...

Wait a minute.

I like Alabama.....just behind Tennessee and Florida.



Embrace Ala.....those are the folks that are going to save your ass.



With the shitstorm that's brewing, you better hope Southerners get riled up.



Somebody has to start the cause and save this country.
