The only way to peel away some Trump voters is if the economy declines.

The GOP is loyal to Trump because they think he created this economy, among other reasons.

We need to express our displeasure with the GOP and Trump by closing our wallets. Consumers drive the economy. Itís time to stop spending as a form of protest.

When Wall Street earnings decline itíll hurt the GOP. Time to cut back on spending. Donít buy that car you want until after the election. Donít buy a house. No new furniture.

This must be done to show how much we despise the threat to our democracy. Just shut down spending. Now.

Are there any nationwide pro-conviction rallies this weekend? We need to take to the streets.

Maximum pressure must be applied!

Phone calls, emails, and rallies are all needed to put pressure on the GOP.

Val Demings is being pushed as VP candidate.

She is from the all important I-4 corridor of the all important swing state of FL.

African American, female, and sharp as a tack. Would make FL even more competitive for the Democratic presidential nominee.

Congresswoman Val Demmings has a high profile stage right now in Congress, a great personal back story, an impressive professional background, preacher-esque oratory skills, a reputation for a sharp, no-nonsense, strategic and tactical intellect, a lifelong commitment to law and order and enormous popularity back home.

Oh. And sheís black. And a woman.

And sheís from a critical swing state worth 29 electoral votes in an area considered one of the stateís most crucial voting blocs.

New poll shows Biden with lead over Trump in FL.

One of the chief arguments that advocates for Joe Bidenís presidential candidacy tout is that they say he's the only Democrat who can defeat Donald Trump in 2020.

That's apparently true in Florida, at least according to a poll released on Tuesday. The Mason-Dixon survey shows that Biden is the only Democrat among four who were listed in a one-on-one matchup with the president who comes out on top.

Florida's 29 electoral votes are the most of any swing-state in the 2020 contest.

Biden has consistently fared best against Trump in Florida polls.

Another poll taken in October showed Elizabeth Warren leading Trump.

Orange County (FL) School District rejects union proposal for compensation

Teachers in OCPS are not happy with compensation based on bonuses rather than salary increase.

FL is now one of the least affordable states in the USA.

This shoots a hole in the claim that teacher wages, and those of so many others, can be lower due to the low cost of living. NOT!! If youíre thinking of trying to move here due to low cost, think again.

New teachers in Miami spend 72% of their income on housing.

How in the world do they eat? I guess when the state ranks 46th in teacher pay this is a result. Affordable housing for teachers is awful all over FL. It really doesnít pay to teach here.

Orlando area teachers being gouged on rent.

Thereís a reason why teachers in Orange, Co Florida rejected the Districtís ďpay raiseĒ. Itís not affordable for teachers to work and live in Central Florida! Donít even think about coming here to teach. In fact, one might want to reconsider teaching altogether at the current rate of pay!

Considering Florida currently ranks near the bottom nationally in public school spending and Orlando rental prices are increasingly getting worse, it really should come as no surprise that a new study found that local teachers can barely afford to live here.

According to a report released today from real estate site Zillow, starting teachers in the Orlando area are spending 50.4% of their income on rent, compared with 42.4% for mid-level teachers and 37.3% for the highest-paid veteran teachers.

I hope the people of El Paso show up to protest Trump's arrival.

This will be interesting.

We need another March for Our Lives. They are not listening.

We need Moms Demand Action or another organization to put another march together thatís twice as big. We need a massive voter registration to get the NRA sycophants out of office!
