Marco Rubio’s racist friends

There’s an old saying in Spanish, “Dime con quien andas, y te dire quien eres.” In a nutshell you are who you hang out with. There are somethings that you can overlook, wearing socks with sandals, or a coat and flip flops, all crimes of fashion but forgivable. There are other things that would be […]

Marco Rubio and the racism of low expectations

Watching the debate between Marco Rubio and Val Demings last night, it clicked to me why as a Cuban woman I take offence to Marco Rubio’s appearance and performance on the national stage for all these years. The racism of low expectations, I’m 57 have lived in Florida for most of my life. Despite all […]

It’s time for the Democrats to go after the police unions to promote public safety

The police unions endorsement of Senator Marco Rubio over a lifetime law enforcement officer and official in Val Demings is no surprise. The FOP & PBA have long become adjuncts of political power and conservative causes, in fact directly aiding the rise of the GOP in this state. The police unions support for Jeb Bush […]

Marco Rubio’s long history of anti-LGBTQ activism

As Floridians and Americans continue to become more tolerant and supportive of equality, Senator Marco Rubio (R-Florida) continues to double down on his record of opposing LGBTQ Floridians’ basic rights and freedoms. Just last month, he publicly attacked the right to same sex-marriage in a speech to a group known for pushing extreme anti-LGBTQ legislation. Rubio’s anti-LGBTQ activism goes back […]

Marco Rubio’s sorry history on Reproductive Rights

As a member of the Florida Legislature culminating in his time as Speaker of the House (2006-2008), Marco Rubio viciously opposed reproductive freedom and supported multiple efforts to chip away at those rights in Florida. Since becoming a US Senator, Rubio’s rhetoric has become more acidic on these issues. Senator Rubio has called Roe v. Wade a […]

What *%$# is Marco Rubio doing?

As my Twitter feed indicates, while slamming other Florida Republicans recently, I’ve been pretty soft on Marco Rubio because I think, unlike the rest of the party of DeSantis and Trump here in Florida, he’s been strong in condemning Russia and Putin (we will try to have more on the party of DeSantis’ Russian love […]

The level of cognitive dissonance among Florida’s GOP leaders is stunning

Senator Marco Rubio is either engaged in high-level trolling of us all or he’s really losing his marbles. This Monday morning tweet about the COVID situation followed several days where Rubio impulsively tweeted highly-charged politicized tweets that were quickly exposed as factually inaccurate. Rubio tweets come at a time where Governor Ron DeSantis’ and his […]

Val Demings, the Democrats rock star and the race against Rubio

Congresswoman Val Demings has announced her candidacy for US Senate. Despite Florida’s clear trend toward the GOP at the statewide level, national Democrats are crowing about this “get” in terms of candidate recruitment and now see the race as a potential pick-up in a 50-50 US Senate.  Demings is at least on paper about as […]
