DEMOCRATIC PARTY TO RUNDLE: "DROP....OUT"

At least it wasn't the Daily News Headline about President Ford and NYC. See below. But the Miami Dade Democratic Party (motto: "Remember Us?) called upon your State Attorney Kathy Fernandez-Rundle to DROP OUT of the primary on August 18,2020. 

The Miami New Times (motto: "Remember Us?") reported this:

During a meeting of the Miami-Dade Democratic Executive Committee last night, an "overwhelming majority" of voting members approved a resolution calling on Rundle to suspend her campaign, says William Byatt, the party's treasurer and author of the resolution.
The measure reiterates Miami-Dade Democrats' previous resolution seeking Rundle's resignation "if she cannot pursue justice for all victims of crime." The 2017 resolution slammed the state attorney for a pattern "in which she has repeatedly refused to hold law enforcement officials accountable for on-duty killings."
They didn't exactly cite the rampage Rumpole went on this week about Rundle not prosecuting cops who punch people in the face when their hands are cuffed behind their backs, but it couldn't have helped. Indeed, if you click on the link and read the article you will see that the SAO Spokesperson responded that the State Attorney cannot charge people without evidence. 
So here is our question we ask once again: WHY DID NOT YOU PROSECUTE DET ARCHER WHEN HE PUNCHED A WOMAN IN THE FACE WHEN SHE HAD HER HANDS CUFFED BEHIND HER BACK? 
Don't hold your breath expecting an answer. 
FORD TO NYC: DROP DEAD
It was a long time ago, when our country was in a different type of crisis. Nixon had resigned. Ford was running for election (not re-election because he was never elected)  and large cities in the Northeast were facing blight and flight. Crime was on the rise, and the activism of the 1960's faded into this sort of difficult nether period of the 1970's when things were blah, and the go-go 80's had not yet arrived. Sometimes nations have down decades, and the 70's was one of them. 
New York City was bankrupt and asked the federal government for a bailout. President Ford said no, and this is how it was reported: 

Now as history buffs know, it did not end well for President Ford in his question for election. James Earl Cater beat him. Will the same thing happen to our State Attorney?

It was the worst of times and . . .the even worser of times. Inflation, unemployment, crime, the SLA, porn, (really) bad hair styles, even worse clothes, George Steinbrenner, Son of Sam, cocaine everywhere and anywhere, and the list goes on. The only thing that would have made it better was if Billy Martin had actually duked it out with Reggie Jackson at Fenway instead of being restrained by players who just didn't appreciate an old fashioned brawl.

While the 1970's will go down as bad, it was not all done in poor taste. For Hollywood, it was probably the best decade ever. The age of the anti hero. Think Godfather I and II, Dog Day Afternoon, Deer Hunter, Coming Home, Bonnie and Clyde, and so forth.

A little entertainment in the Florida Supreme Court nomination games. Probably nothing will come of it, but still amusing to watch.
