first_imgMy Contract With Indiana’s 8th District – and AmericaWhere’s Larry, the Anti-Trump?By Richard Moss, MD Candidate for Congress, Republican Party, 8TH Congressional District, IndianaJasper, IN: Congressman Bucshon has been campaigning as if he is the greatest Trumper the world has ever known, citing some absurd factoid about being in agreement with the President “98.6%” of the time, coincidentally normal body temperature. But Bucshon is no Pro-Trumper, he is the anti-Trump.  On the issue of the day, which is immigration, he showed himself to be the opposite of Trump by endorsing “Gang of 8” amnesty-Rubio during the Republican Presidential Primary. He called Trump’s executive order to ban Muslims from dangerous countries “divisive” and “unfortunate.”  He is a Never-Trumper trying to rebrand himself as a pro-Trumper.  But he is no such thing. But this is what happens when you stand for nothing and don’t even know what you believe. He is not steeped in the issues and gets his cues from the GOP establishment, arguably the worse possible source.  He is, like the GOP, status quo, a big government, big spending liberal progressive Republican pretending to be a conservative.  It is not for nothing he has a Heritage Action Conservative Score of 52%, an F.  It’s not for nothing he votes every year for some massive Omnibus Bill that funds Democrat priorities like sanctuary cities, amnesty, DACA, and Planned Parenthood.  He ducked his debate with me, refusing to defend his record.  Finally and perhaps most telling, he has moved to DC, a swamp creature if ever there was one.  It is time to drain the swamp beginning right here in Indiana’s 8th district.  It is time to repeal and replace Larry Bucshon. In the context of Larry’s wavering and posturing, I present my Contract with Indiana’s 8th District and America.  Here is my ten-point platform on the critical issues of the day. You will know where I stand, and I will not waver or posture regardless of political headwinds.  It is time for a change.My 10 Point Contract With Indiana’s 8th Congressional District and America1. America First Immigration Reform. 2. Balanced budget. Cut spending, taxes, regulations. Reduce the size of government. 3. Repeal Obamacare. Support Free Market Healthcare Reform. 4. Rein in the Federal Courts.  End government by judicial fiat.   5. Fight the Opioid Crisis By Securing the Southern Border, ending DACA, “catch and release,” and the corrupt and abused “asylum” and “refugee” system. Deport Illegal alien criminals, drug dealers, and gangs like MS 13 that are overrunning our cities and towns and importing illicit heroin, fentanyl, Meth, and Cocaine from Mexico that is killing tens of thousands of Americans every year.6. End the War on Fossil Fuels and Nuclear: Confront the pseudoscience known as Global Warming/Climate Change.  Make American the dominant energy power in the world.  Refocus the EPA on real pollutants not CO2.7. Education Reform: First Amendment Protection on College Campus, Code of Ethics, End political indoctrination in schools and colleges. Lower costs through competition and choice.  Privatize loans. Two-tiered educational system (K-12), college bound and career training. Promote School Choice.8. Defend the Second Amendment. Crime Control Not Gun Control. Concealed Carry National Reciprocity9. Restore traditional values, culture, morality, faith, and the two-parent intact married family as the model for society. Promote Life.  Defend the Judeo-Christian tradition and Western Civilization. Oppose the transgendering of our military, schools, and bathrooms.  10. International: America First Foreign Policy: Unchallengeable Military Deterrent. Peace Through Strength. So what is Bucshon’s position on the issues? You would never know. He never says. After all, he has 90% name ID, as he said in defense of his decision not to debate me. These are the issues I would fight for on behalf of Indiana’s 8th district and the nation.FOOTNOTE-Dr. Richard Moss is a board certified head and neck cancer surgeon and was a candidate for Congress in 2016.

Fiumare – Kvarner Festival of the Sea and Maritime Tradition becomes a kind of time machine in the authentic locations of the Delta – Dead Channel and Verdi Street

first_imgFrom the first post, I emphasize the same thing, let’s respect ourselves, our tradition, identity, culture, history… because only if we respect ourselves, others will respect us. Especially when we talk about tourism, because the very motive of travel is to get to know a new way and culture of living, which draws the logical hypothesis that authenticity is the very essence of tourism.Exactly one such great tourist story takes place in Kvarner, more precisely in Rijeka, as part of “Fiumare” – Kvarner Festival of the Sea and Maritime Tradition, which takes place from May 30 to June 6 in Rijeka. Connecting the maritime and trade tradition of the past with today’s everyday life, Fiumare will once again be a kind of time machine in the authentic locations of the Dead Channel and Verdi Street, and along the Promenade, traditional boats will occupy the entire Rijeka waters and port.The goals of the Fiumara event are the promotion of Rijeka and Kvarner through the presentation and valorization of heritage potentials in the field of maritime, fishing and traditional shipbuilding by organizing a number of attractive events, but also the presentation of Kvarner destinations with their specific eco-ethno products. In addition to preserving and revitalizing the maritime heritage, Fiumari aims to strengthen the potential of cultural tourism in Rijeka, but also to connect Rijeka as a natural and historical center of Kvarner with other destinations, which further valorizes all heritage potentials of the region.Wooden boats on sails anchored in the Dead Channel, traders and craftsmen in traditional costumes from all over Kvarner, interactive workshops of maritime and fishing skills, promotion of old customs, gastronomic offer of indigenous dishes and wines, organized tours of historical locations of the city center, regattas of traditional boats on sails, exhibitions, lectures, open deck days and museums… are just some of the programs offered by Fiumare. Download the Fiumare festival program HEREFiumare – Kvarner Festival of the Sea and Maritime Tradition is becoming a kind of time machine in the authentic locations of the Delta – Dead Channel and Verdi Street – a junction with the market and harbor.Opatija guc OP 552 from 1895 was declared the most original boat of the 7th Fiumare festival”Opatija guc” is a characteristic boat for transporting tourists at a time when oars and wind were used to drive boats. The purpose of this boat was exclusively tourist, so its restoration is very valuable as a reminder of the centuries-old tradition of “barkariola”. Opatija’s guc deserves a return to the regular tourist offer of the Opatija Riviera as a kind of “gondola” of the Riviera, in fact, it is insane that it is not long ago.last_img read more

ValuJet passengers mourned

first_imgMIAMI – Maria Bafunno knelt and gently touched the name of her brother, Giuseppe, inscribed on a cemetery stone marker that lists the names of the 110 people killed when ValuJet Flight 592 plunged into the Everglades 10 years ago Thursday. “It seems like yesterday,” the West Palm Beach resident said as she attended ceremonies on the crash anniversary. “It’s good to be with all the people who went through the same things.” About 80 relatives and friends of Flight 592’s passengers and crew were joined by federal investigators, who talked about changes since the crash. Like many family members, Marguerite Dingle of Baltimore said she felt compelled to take part in the anniversary because there were no remains recovered of her sister, Frances Brown.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Passenger airlines can no longer carry as cargo the oxygen generators blamed for starting the fire that brought down Flight 592. The Federal Aviation Administration also ordered the installation of fire detection and suppression systems in cargo areas. The FAA’s inspector general at the time, Mary Schiavo, said the crash also spurred federal laws and airline policies that treat victims’ relatives with greater respect and provide them with more information. “These families sort of stood together and banded together like no other crash before it,” Schiavo said. “That was a major, major change in the law.” AirTran Airways, which arose from ValuJet’s ashes, now has one of the newest fleets of aircraft flying to 50 destinations. The maintenance contractor blamed for the mishandling of the oxygen generators was convicted in 1999 of state criminal charges of recklessly supplying the devices and went out of business. last_img read more
