🌎After years of deleterious moves to outright harm the environment, why did Rick Scott take action and on July 9th and declare a STATE OF EMERGENCY because of blue-green algae blooms? 3 Reasons. Money, politics & urgency/necessity.…
👉These 7 counties were affected by the blue-green algae blooms: Palm Beach, Martin, St. Lucie, Glades, Hendry, Lee and Okeechobee.
⁉️And then on August 13, 2018, why did Rick Scott declare a STATE OF EMERGENCY because of “red tide” in the following counties: Charlotte, Collier, Hillsborough, Lee, Manatee, Pinellas and Sarasota? (Lucky Lee County! Red + Green = Grey—Brown)…

"Come on in, the water's fine!": #RedTideRick

How red and green slime (really) could swing Florida’s Senate race #FLSen
“I see Rick Scott wearing that Navy hat everywhere he goes. Governor, this hat represents what the Navy stands for: honor & integrity. My question for you sir, where’s yours?”

@votevets slams Scott's defrauding of the military's health care program #FLSen
A trust blind in name only: @FLGovScott transferred many assets to his wife and neither “blinded” nor disclosed them. And their investments – which mirror each other – included corporations and funds that stood to benefit from his administration’s actions

🗣️When you see #RedTideRick Scott in the #Florida panhandle helping hurricane (cane-ado? hurricane+tornado) victims wearing that all-important NAVY hat, remember what he said: “I made more money selling soft drinks on the ship than I did getting my pay."…
🔥🔥As Frank Cerabino from the @palmbeachpost points out, Scott made lots of money (1970-72) from buying lots of soda before setting sail, then price gouging his fellow shipmates who were very thirsty and had no other choice.
🔥Cerabino also points out that during hurricanes, a fair amount of price gouging goes on as well.

💥Cerabino: "Because in hurricanes, people also try to take advantage of short supplies and heavy demand in various unsavory ways."

🧢So please don't fall for the Navy hat act.

This is INSANE!!
Rick Scott is trying to RAM through 3 conservative Supreme Court justice picks BEFORE his term ends & AFTER they are forced to retire because of a mandatory age 70 limit—a window that could be only hrs. All 3 justices have opposed Scott in major cases.
👨‍⚖️👩‍⚖️👩‍⚖️All three justices: Fred Lewis, Barbara Pariente & Peggy Quince are scheduled to leave on January 8, 2019—Scott says midnight.

💣Scott's term ends the exact same day, but he believes his term officially ends the next day (1/9/19) at noon when the new Governor is sworn in.
🛑There's an intermediary step: the Supreme Court Judicial Nominating Committee (JNC) is supposed to come up with a list of replacement candidates for the three justices for the 7-member court before the decision is made.

🚅So Scott ordered the commission to start in mid-Sept!
