Skip to comments.Florida Voters..Know your judges
Posted on 10/28/2006 4:52:53 AM PDT by ThreePuttinDude
Upon receiving my sample ballot for the upcoming election, I noticed in the non-partisan section the names of the Florida Supreme Court Justices up for re-election. What I noticed were names that brought back memories of the 2000 election, and all of the nightmare antics we had to go through due to the state court.
Names to remember:
Justice Fred R. Lewis
Justice Barbara Joan Pariente
Justice Peggy A. Quince
I did that yesterday!
I voted two days ago in Florida and voted to not retain all the judges on the ballot. I know they all will be retained even though many deserve to be stoned in the public square.
I now they will be retained but voted against retention in the hopes that maybe they will feel some pressure to discontinue their judicial social agenda.
I am just flabergasted that more judges are not targeted by disgrunteled folks screwed by their activism.
Who the hell are judges to push social issues to their liking?
Why is it that freaks like sandra day insist we the people not criticize judges?
Too opften Florida judges like those in N.J. are just wrong and in disregard of our constitution.
Right, voted against them all.
R. Fred Lewis, liberal Democrat
Barbara Joan Pariente, liberal Democrat
Peggy A. Quince, liberal Democrat
District Court, Emerson R. Thompson, Jr., liberal Democrat
State Constitution #1, yes
And I voted "No" on all three.
Unfortunately, since I am not a Dem'crat, I cannot vote again on this issue in this election.
But those of you who have not yet voted, you can help out here.
And by the way, a kind word (and vote) for Katherine Harris, who was upholding the law in 2000, while these three were mangling it.
Does anyone have any info on the 4th district court of appeals in west Palm Beach.
Alex Sink is a typical Democrat, in that she will tell any lie in order to get elected. Her TV ads talk about "run away spending" in the Jeb Bush years! And DemoRat Jim Davis says if he were elected governor he "has a plan" to cut property taxes by $1 billion. This is of course total BS. Davis and Sink would be pushing a State income tax in the first 30 seconds if they were elected. They would attempt to turn Florida into another liberal welfare state with higher and higher taxes, huge increase in State government spending, and a resultant decline in business and employment. In short, they want to undo what Jeb Bush has accomplished.
Excellent points. Alex published an invitation to a rally supporting herself first, and her husband back in 2002. It was full of typos, from the candidate touting himself as "the education candidate."
Alex invited women to a Tampa Bay Really, and told us to "Bring all you friends." I'll never forget how hard I laughed when I read it. Rally, I did.
She is the female dog who would not change her name to her husband's last name.
Now SHE! is ussing a MAN's name to cause confusion!
So now we officially know who is the female dog to the female dog in that relationship.
THANKS FOR THE HEADS UP
BUMP TO THE POST!
Bump. Thanks, NautiNurse. That looks like the ballot I cast yesterday. Go Florida Pubbies! No to the Florida Supreme Court Judges. Here's hoping Governor Crist will be naming their replacements in January.
My wife and I already voted NO!!!! Besides that we didnt give a sh-t what the media said and voted for Harris
Harris is far better qualified than Nelson. Nelson doesn't represent the average Floridian. He votes in the Senate as if his constituents were all liberal Democrats. When the Clintonistas say "jump", Nelson says "how high?" Nelson is a pompous, air-head, has-been, blow-hard, good ole boy who thinks he can continue to vote like Kerry and still get re-elected in Florida. Space cadet Nelson will be retired soon.
If I remember these judges are the ones who violated Florida State Statutes by overturning the 2000 presidential election. They also violated Florida Statute and the Florida Constitution when they approved the killing of Terri Schiavo.
I am a Floridian and I will vote for their removal.
I have a question: how come no to the vets reduced homeowners insurance? Also the 'majority vote'. Thanks for your input!
