I’m Growing Grasshoppers!

These hatchlings were taking over one of my Bell Pepper plants. It was so unusual I had to take a picture and share. It would not have been long and they would have devoured the rest of the plants. All I can say is Sevin Dust! I am Tom Loury Publisher and know no one sees me as a Gardener, but I am really having fun with my garden. And the bell peppers and tomatoes are delicious.

Publishers Notes – July 2017

I am having a terrible time understanding why all of the Republicans are not rallying around the Trump Team. They don’t have to like the man to get things done for the people of our country. Furthermore the Left is committing borderline Treason. The BIG SYNDICATED NEWSPAPERS owned by the Left are printing Fake news. Also the big networks are producing Fake news. I believe when they do that it should be considered Treason because of the intent. It is being done to disrupt our country and even cause someone to kill our representative in the Republican Party. The election is over! One Congressman decided he did not sign up to be threatened and has decided to get out.

I was talking to a retired nurse and the conversation came around to the babies that are in trouble at birth. As I understand it, a mother that is on Crack Cocaine comes to the hospital in Ocala to give birth because where they live they will be arrested and the baby will be taken to Child Services. As it looks like to me, the baby beginning life under these circumstances, doesn’t have a chance. [Read more…]

June 2017 Publisher’s Notes

There is no sense in me commenting on the national news because it’s moving faster than the speed of light. Well at least Trump and his spokespeople can’t keep up. Of course the Left is stalling; it has to come to a head sooner or later. Some of these foreign countries have had their way with us for way too long. When the White House has a briefing, the left media twists the story. Somebody said just shut down the briefing room; don’t do press conferences. That will teach them a lesson.

It seems to me that you have to have a crime before you name a Special Prosecutor. It seems to me that the left has a wish list and I know what the first wish is. They are making themselves look foolish. First the call for Impeachment has to have a crime. So far there is no evidence, only accusations. The one thing that the Left is trying to get us to forget is the leaks, no matter where they came from, were true! First I think we need to pass a law that it is illegal to pay someone to disrupt a meeting, a rally or any public gathering. That is far beyond freedom of speech. [Read more…]

State Attorney’s Office Strikes Again – May 2017

By TomL

The State Attorney’s office was not satisfied that they took down Sheriff Blair, taking down the Lake County Sheriff, and  in addition putting four Marion County Sheriff deputies in prison. Brad King tried to prosecute the fifth officer that plead innocent. Now the State Attorney’s Office has ruined another innocent Deputy’s career. Deputy Parker, a 14 year veteran of the Marion County Sheriff’s Department, one of the World Winning Swat Team and a Canine Officer, was called into court to testify in a case. His testimony was different than his supervisor’s who was part of the Billy Woods transition Team. He gave his testimony to the best of his recollection and his written statement reflected  the same as his testimony. The records show he was accurate. The State Attorney’s office lost the case against the fifth officer and then it started… Deputy Parker, a Sheriff Deputy, just a witness in the case had his career ruined because he remembered something different than another witness.

The State Attorney. Brad King released a statement that his office would no longer trust Officer Parker’s testimony in any case from this time forward, which is critical in a Deputies job. Just a little harsh don’t you think? Of course the Press Release was printed by the Ocala Star Banner without collaboration, NO PROOF OF WRONG DOING! Flat out ruined Deputy Parker’s career. Sheriff Billy Woods called Parker in with the intent to fire him, but Parker handed him his written resignation. Parker was raised in the Agricultural World. He will come out of  this because he has a lot of friends. Remember they are voters. Parker has a wife, two children and third on the way. “What a shame!” [Read more…]

Publisher’s Notes April 2017

I have been saying for a very long time Washington has some corruption but never did I think that it was this bad. The previous administration was totally out of control. The Democratic Party is burying itself. The Republican Party is fractured into a number of power brokers, kind of like Humpty Dumpty. We are in the process right now trying to put the party back together again. People like Ron Paul are having fun making the party struggle to pass bills and move forward.

I keep hearing Trump said this and that. Everything I have heard from him has turned out to be true. Let’s just look at a few things.

Trump did not Say: You can’t have an abortion. He said you will have to pay for it yourself.

Trump did not say: Refugees are bad. He said we need to first make sure that they are not coming here to harm us.

Trump did not say: Mexican are not welcome. He said they can apply and come in the proper way.

Trump did not say: He was not taking away anyone’s freedom but he is cutting the funding on things that never should have been funded in the first place.   [Read more…]

Publisher’s Notes March 2017

Where do I start??? There is so much to talk about.

GAS LINE! Well one of the local things that is going on in my life is that the Sabal Trail Gas Line is all but finished, the 3ft diameter pipe is welded and buried. Let’s hope this is not where the real trouble starts. I see these people protesting carrying signs. To them I say you are a year to late. The Gas line representative held meetings for some two years, asking questions, answering questions, but very few were protesting. “I DID!” actually when they first came to talk to me, I refused them and ran them off my property. The next contact was to get permission to survey my property, I refused them again. They said that legally I had to allow surveyors to survey my property, I refused them again and hired an attorney because I could not do my daily business and deal with them. So from the day I hired my attorney on till finish I did not talk to them, I refer them to legal council.

When I realized that many people were not fighting they were rolling over and signing their papers. I saw that at that time public opinion was not protest. There was some obstruction but to no end results. [Read more…]

Publisher’s Notes

By Tom Loury

Alan Simpson, Senator from Wyoming, Co-Chair of Obama’s deficit commission, calls senior citizens the Greediest Generation as he compared “Social Security” to a Milk Cow with 310 million teats.

Publishers Note: The seniors paid their dues, if Alan Simpson and his political friends would have kept your fingers out of the Social Security fund and quit stealing money out of it, there would not be a shortage for some time.

You know what Alan, you probably did not pay your portion. Obama and his administration has millions of people on the teat on social security programs that they don’t deserve and they have not paid anything into it.

Many seniors have paid in for 50 or 60 years and don’t desire your kind of talk. You seniors out there watch for Alan to run for office again and vote him off the face of the political scene. How do you like that Alan??? What do you think???? [email protected] net
