John Oliver on Felon Disenfranchisement Sep 10, 2018 | 11 comments Here’s another classic from HBO’s John Oliver: Facebook Twitter Google+ 11 Comments Jerry on September 12, 2018 at 7:41 am Yes Death seems to be a goal to look forward to instead of this life in constant fear that unknowingly something was forgotten and then thrown in prison for a technical violation. Reply J.G.in AZ on September 10, 2018 at 4:30 pm If convicted felons were allowed to vote a lot of these politicians would be out on the street, because a lot of ex felons either guilty or not know how the system truly is. I do not live in Floiduh anymore,as I read some posts it makes we wonder how society would stoop so low and scrap the barrel on choosing certain people for public office. I had to deal with floiduh before… Get Out when u have the chance!!! Reply Capt Charles Munsey Jr. USN (Ret) on September 10, 2018 at 6:30 pm J.G. in AZ I spent 29 years serving my country. My family and my home is in Florida. I have numerous great associates in my life here. I love my churches and church families. I have activities that fill my life with a reason to get up each morning. I was trained to be a fighter and no Florida politician is equal to a Viet Cong or mid East terrorists. I am here to stay until I am called home to be next to my wife in her eternal rest. No sleazy politician is going to run me out of my home, my community, or my “world”. I will stand to fight this lunacy, paranoia, innuendo, ‘fake news’, and political craziness as long as God lets me. I am not one to run from evil and injustice. My friends say I’m good at ‘poking the bear in the eye with a stick’. I like to see politicians and their minions squirm in their stupidity. I so wish that Gov Scott, AG Bondi, and the Brevard County commissioners could see this comment. Reply J.G.in AZ on September 11, 2018 at 3:30 am Capt C. Munsey Thank u for service. It is good that you have family and friends there in that State. I did not! Your choice to stand your ground, is admirable But for me It was a call to leave.I haven’t been in the service but an R.O.T.C program myself for two (2) years. I was taught even a leader such as myself and others know when time to retreat, I chose to retreat. I am just on here for two reasons I was asked to sign the”Petition to abolished the registry.” and asked if I could donate monies for the “Out of state challenge” I come to love the unlovable because I relate in ways that I could reach out to others to give and offer comfort. I believe in GOD but do not have church families as you had mention, This good for you, I do not play church and will not step foot in any church. I do not need any church member telling me how I should live while they can’t get their own life together, nor tell me what I need to do because none of them pay my bills.. I like to say Kudos to you for staying there and fight the ” politic craziness” I wish and anyone else the best!! Reply Jm on September 10, 2018 at 8:46 pm Florida is a kingmaker. If there were 1.5 million disenfranchised people all of a sudden allowed to vote: imagine the tipping points of the politicians: each one with platforms od in aceratione etc. The dogs would be unleashed and the politics of the nation truly affected. Reply Capt Charles Munsey Jr. USN (Ret) on September 10, 2018 at 12:57 pm Other than the foul language opening this video lays out well the situation in Florida. I have sent it to numerous friends to review. I would not support Rick Scott for ‘dog catcher’ even in a race against Bill Nelson…and I believe Nelson would make a lousy ‘dog catcher’. Reply Fight ex post facto on September 10, 2018 at 10:17 am Every time its except six offenders Reply JZ on September 10, 2018 at 10:16 am “…….except in the cases of murder or sex crimes.” This only reinforces the fallacy promoted by rabid feminists that say being the victim of a sexual assault is “a fate worse than death.” THERE IS NO FATE WORSE THAN DEATH, YOU ARE DEAD! I expect the puritan$ of Floriduh politic$ to start a campaign blitz to encourage “the good people of Floriduh” to vote against restoring voting rights. I have no faith in Floriduh’s illiterate electorate. Reply Bobby on September 10, 2018 at 12:33 pm Rick Scott telling that man that he doesn’t feel comfortable right now with a decision for him and for what reason ? ” just because “…. Nothing is more frustrating than to work hard to get your life in order the way it used to be – everything done perfect and there is literally no room for objections and then to have some pompous religious right wing nut says he doesn’t feel comfy right now – just because . I applaud the gentleman who was denied for his composure after what Scott told him. Takes a lot not to react emotionally considering everything a felon goes through in society trying to get his or her life back. Reply Capt Charles Munsey Jr. USN (Ret) on September 10, 2018 at 3:47 pm Bobby, I’m in total agreement with you! Reply Dan on September 10, 2018 at 8:46 am So every other class of fellon has potential to score a win except SO’s? Drug dealers that sell to kids. Crack heads that carjack and break into homes etc but not SO’s.. Seems like my only safe place will be 6ft under..
