SCOTTCARE (the health insurance that covers Florida's beloved Gov. Rick Scott) costs less than 28 cents a day for an individual adult or less than a dollar a day for full family coverage. The deductibles and co-pays are negligible. Other people do the paperwork for you. It is a blessing of goodness and light - at least.

Public school tax money pays a for-profit charter school corporation to pay for a public rally to promote use of tax money for charter schools. (Try reading that aloud three times fast without making your mind burst.)

Florida has Michelle Rhee, and Illinois has Jonah Edelman as front-line attackers. Other states have similar people with organizations bearing sweet titles such as Save the Children or Students First masking the real purpose of the corporate for-profit takeover of schools (privatization).
ALERT: Do you realize that these attacks are also occurring all over the world?

The Palm Bay City Council meeting on August 4 focused on the proposed Fire Safety fee (click here for details). SCPA president Joe Pishgar and SCPA member Ray Myers were among several citizens who spoke up against the Tea Party folks and in support of Michele Paccione, Ken Green, and William Capote.
