We are not connected with Sunshine Empire of Singapore

Please review the statement on our parent site, but we will repeat here that this is a blog about politics and has no connection whatsoever with the Singaporean company called Sunshine Empire or any of their officials currently on trial for fraud. These people are crooks preying upon the innocent and will get what they deserve. Any name similarity is purely coincidental. Please also note that we are THE Sunshine Empire, not just Sunshine Empire.

A long overdue update

This blog is the prior version of The Sunshine Empire. This blog primarily concerns progressive political commentary, social satire, the occasional rant, and sports commentary. I had intended to write on local Jacksonville and Florida matters on this space, but the national Presidential election had pre-occupied me.

Florida though is again in the news due to the fight over the primary re-do. I was watching CNN this morning and Florida Representative Kendrick Meek was arguing that the people of Florida made their voices heard, which is an absurd claim. With nobody campaigning in the state it can hardly be viewed as fair. Locally the city of Jacksonville seems to be falling apart, and we'll see more as Charlie Crist's foolhardy plan to placate South Floridians turns northern Florida into Youngstown Ohio. No taxes will mean less police. Great.

The Jaguars however have made the moves they needed to in order to succeed past the second round of the playoffs this coming year. But the Titans improved as well. Maybe we'll see a repeat of the glory days of the late '90's. But this time the Jags better win.

For more national political talk please continue to visit our political commentary site The Sunshine Empire.

On the frigid Florida coast

It is freezing in Florida. We're used to shorts and t-shirts, but it it finally cold. It's weird when you start seeing figures on the news start wearing overcoats, and you have a vague indication that it is getting cold somewhere. Then it finally overtakes you. The foul frigid breath of our Canadian brethren. It's 39 degrees, and I don't care how much snow you walk through that is cold.

I'll be heading down to Gainesville to see the University of Florida play Florida Atlantic University. For our Singapore readers that is a gigantic deal in the southern United States. College Football that is, because that game I am attending has little or no meaning. Just one more week until Free Shoes comes to town. I don't care how down Bobby and the boys may be, I want to pound them into the turf.
