This column is a vehicle for a number of items in a bits-and-pieces, strictly opinion, sometimes irreverent format. Look for "Just Sayin'" to run once a week in this spot.

President-elect Donald Trump is known for his blunt approach. And on human rights, we are well past due for some hard truths. 
December 9, 2016 - 10:30am
No, Florida Democrats are not going to have a repeat of 2013. As you may recall, strings were pulled, arms were twisted, people were bought off in 2013 to get Allison Tant in as Florida Democratic Party chair.

The most amusing part of the Trump transition has been watching its effortless confounding of the media, often in fewer than 140 characters. One morning, after a Fox News report on lefty nuttiness at some obscure New England college -- a flag burning that led a more-contemptible-than-usual campus administration to take down the school's own American flag -- Donald Trump tweets that flag burners should go to jail or lose their citizenship.

Welcome to the dawn of the citizen legislator.

So, this is the new conservatism's recipe for restored greatness: Political coercion shall supplant economic calculation in shaping decisions by companies in what is called, with diminishing accuracy, the private sector. This will be done partly as conservatism's challenge to liberalism's supremacy in the victimhood sweepstakes, telling aggrieved groups that they are helpless victims of vast, impersonal forces, against which they can be protected only by government interventions.

That's how the headlines will read in 2018 if Sen. Bill Nelson doesn't stop playing around in the Florida Democratic Party chair race.

There is no "push" to evict the federal government from running the Arthur R. Marshall Loxahatchee National Wildlife Refuge. None. No matter what you hear Florida environmentalists say to the contrary.

Republicans say they are going to “replace” Obamacare, but they will come up with something very similar and at least as bad if they start with the same misguided objective: “universal coverage.”

Democratic leadership wants Annette Taddeo out of the way and just like that, she moves over. The former head of the Miami-Dade Democratic Executive Committee and former candidate for almost everything else is no longer running for state committeewoman.

December 17th marks the one year anniversary of the Libyan Political Agreement, making this an opportune time to review the administration’s policy on Libya. When this administration first participated in the intervention in Libya in 2011, many of us expressed concern with the administration’s lack of clearly articulated objectives, a post-intervention plan, or even an explanation about how it fit U.S. national security interests.

On the first stop of his "thank you" tour in Ohio Thursday, president-elect Donald Trump hit replay on several of his campaign tropes.

Judge Karen Gievers
For the last five days I've been asking myself the same question, and I can't stand it anymore. It's time I asked it out loud. Why didn't Judge Karen Gievers of Florida's 2nd Judicial Circuit recuse herself?

Twenty-five years ago -- December 1991 -- communism died, the Cold War ended and the Soviet Union disappeared. It was the largest breakup of an empire in modern history and not a shot was fired.
