Politicians use liberal logic on local voters

Media tactic: keep repeating it until it is believed

Chamber of Commerce gets out of their lane, again.

Chamber of Commerce gets out of their lane, again.

Let me start this post by saying you should Google the words "change school names" and you will find this is an issue all across America. Same strategies. Same tactics. Same type of players. It's not just here and it's an indication that someone somewhere is pulling...

City Council has a lot of spare time on its hands

Public policy on transportation isn’t easy to understand

Public policy on transportation isn’t easy to understand

Like a broken record, it is time to renew downtown again

Grab your wallets. Another plan to “revitalize” downtown is in the works. Taxpayers have been diverting money they need for their families to the city treasury for decades in order to “invest” in the downtown area. The effort began in the late 1940s under Mayor Haydon...

Sonny B calls out Jax Public Library on their racism

Sonny B calls out Jax Public Library on their racism

This post is from Sonny B regarding the Jax Public Library sponsored Zoom call with Frederick Joseph discussing his book The Black Friend: On Being a Better White Person. He isn't happy and none of us should be. Is this appropriate for a Public Library to approve the...

Is Jacksonville destined to become the town of Cowford again?

Is Jacksonville destined to become the town of Cowford again?

Voting on the issue of changing school names is being held throughout the city, but there are indications that it is just political theater. Some are convinced the liberal School Board will change the names of nine local public schools no matter what the voters say....

Fernandina Beach: The day the music died?

Knee-jerk news stories again appear in liberal local media
