October 23rd, 21014 – Zoning in Zoning Out – Vote No on Amendment 2 in Florida!
Oct 23rd, 2014 by Rob Smith, Jr.

Amend2-ZoningProblems2

Something not being talked about is that the attempts by local government to limit “medical” marijuana stores in Florida will be met by lawsuits. The amendment is very clear about stores and the pro-2 crowd lawyers have been very clear they will sue any attempt to alter the language of the amendment.

As someone who worked in planning in government, I can tell you these stores have to be considered low-impact, retail stores, as with any pharmacy, if the constitutional amendment 2 becomes law. These will appear in areas near schools and residential areas. That cannot be stopped unless other medical facilities are also rezoned. Imagine kicking out Tampa General, Raulerson Hospital, Baptist Medical Center, any of the Sacred Heart or Florida Hospitals. These are all beside or very near residential areas and schools. So can the “medical” marijuana stores.

You may have noticed little pharmacies popping up in your area of Florida in the past year. They are preparing for amendment 2 to pass. Expect most to convert to also selling “medical” marijuana.

Likely this will cost taxpayers millions and millions as foolish politicians try to fight where “medical” marijuana shops can go. And you wonder why lawyers are trying to get it passed?

July 19th, 2014: My Political Cartoon today: Putin’s Power.
Jul 19th, 2014 by Rob Smith, Jr.

2014-0719-Putin2

I do feel that Putin is challenging the power of the west. He’s doing it well do to the West being so lost in poor leadership and home based problems. At this rate Putin could rightly take the mantel as the world’s leading power.

The version above was not the first I did. I was listening to The Five and the Kelly File on Fox News and I pictured this scene and started drawing it. As I got close to finishing the cartoon, I realized it just didn’t work and went back and did the version above. With a head for sequential storytelling, I want to layout a meaningful stage to place the characters in with lots of detail.  These days, I need to work as simple as possible and get the message across. Hope the cartoon above worked!

I’m, backed up with cartoons to send. And the brilliant Ken Culotta called me today with more ideas! I’ll get a few out in the next few days. Tomorrow’s will be one that Ken called me about.

Please feel free to forward and post these as you would like.
I’m also on Twitter, where I tend to post the most about politics:

July 17th, 2014 – Activist Judge trumps Florida voters and homosexuals can marry in Florida.
Jul 17th, 2014 by Rob Smith, Jr.

Judges continue to obliterate the votes of the Citizens of Florida. We vote for a ban of homosexual marriage in 2008 and some judge way down in Monroe County decides for everyone from Key West to Okeechobee to Tampa to Jacksonville to Tallahassee to Pensacola that we don’t know as much as he does.

You must pay attention to the judges you vote it! That and any judge who thinks they can trump the majority will of a state needs to be removed from their judicial seat.
