Then, Florida State College at Jacksonville launches a new "Diplomacy Lab" in partnership with U.S. State Department.

Proof and evidence for your claims of "continuing" civil rights violations? Does the Florida DOC operate here or something? It's not a civil rights violation to send your emails directly to ye old spam box after ten years of bombardment with impossible demands so you can complain about it publicly. Let's get some proof and evidence for your bogus claims and libel.

Proof is on this blog and in public meetings, 2005-date. Who else dumps a landfill in a lake and hires lawyers and managers who don't apply and don't get background investigations? You sound like an angry cognitive miser. Identify yourself, please.

It's a right wing police state marketed as a "free state." Yeah right. Freedom for the grifter and freedom t-shirts for everyone else. Good luck making it out of whatever class you were born into down here. Next stop, cameras at every intersection and in every neighborhood. Already they've got feeds to many businesses here.
