A tax-slave society where people not only work for minimal wages and no benefits but also where they have no voice in their government’s decisions – that is the world envisioned by the Koch brothers.  Florida is ground-zero for their anti-Democratic society and Rick Scott is their most enthusiastic minion, happily implementing their dogma and dictates.

Please read this exclusive story from Daily Kos about how Rick Scott ignored the Florida Constitution NOT ONLY WHEN HE FIRED FDLE COMMISSIONER BAILEY, but also when he gave the Koch brothers permission to dump tons of toxic waste into the St Johns River every single day from their Georgia-Pacific papermill in Palatka, FL.  The story is written by Florida Clean Water Network’s attorney Steve Medina.  He is representing Florida Clean Water Network and several others in a lawsuit against Scott and the Board of Trustees for giving away our rights under the Florida Constitution and the Public Trust Doctrine.  Please read it and pass it on!!!  Here’s the link:
