Hillary Clinton and her campaign will fly into South Florida Friday to jump-start the local troops -- a job she knows how to do well. But you have to wonder how many of those troops will be black, and how many will know how to deliver critical black votes in 13 months?

In November 1964 a crowd of 5,000 attended the opening of the Verrazano Narrows Bridge, then the longest suspension bridge in the world. Presiding were New York Mayor Robert Wagner, Gov. Nelson Rockefeller and transportation and parks czar Robert Moses. Also in the crowd was a teenager named Donald Trump.

When the liberal media is berating the conservative government in Florida – which is pretty much every day – it often borders on the ridiculous as they strain for a point.

They call it "bacha bazi," translated as "boy play" -- Afghan militia men throwing boys into sexual slavery. What's worse yet, the U.S. military has turned a blind eye to this obscene practice. The front page of The New York Times carried the headline "US Soldiers Told to Ignore Sexual Abuse of Boys by Afghan Allies."

Richard Corcoran
Tom Lee loved it, Don Gaetz loved it, now here comes Richard Corcoran peddling more lobbyist reform. It's such a crock, this business of "special interests." As the main legislative goal for this year, next year or any year, it does not one thing to move the needle for the Florida economy, for education, for child welfare, for expanding economic opportunity, anything that might improve Floridians' lives.
