Solving the Unemployment Problem

Sheriff Rich Nugent

An article in Hernando Today caught my attention. You and I know that despite the attempts by the Obama Administration and their Democratic allies in Washington to spin the issue in a way that will benefit them, the unemployment situation in Florida and particularly the 5th Congressional District of Florida remains grim.

Fiscal Responsibility is What Government Needs

Sheriff Rich Nugent

I call on Congress to introduce legislation to freeze spending at 2008 levels, before all of the bailouts and stimulus projects were funded. Some Democrats here in Florida say that this is for “political show.” Well, I can promise you nothing could be further from the truth. These same Democrats say that they have no real issues with how the Obama Administration has led our country these past 18 months. All it took was a quick read of what our government is spending money on.

The Recession is Over?? Really?

Sheriff Rich Nugent

I don’t know about you, but every once in a while I read something online or in the newspaper that makes me ask “What planet are these people living on?” Just the other day, the news media trumpeted the headline “Recession Ended in June 2009.” They were referring to a report issued by the National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER), which several members of the media said were “the arbiter of the start and end dates of a recession.”

Have You Read The Constitution?

Sheriff Rich Nugent

On this day in 1787, 39 brave and forward thinking men signed the U.S. Constitution. This document was and still is the center piece of our great nation. At the signing of this historic document, these men could not have conceived what was in store for this nation. The Constitution has seen our nation through times of economic expansion and depression and times of peace and war. Currently a renewed vigor has been placed on the understanding of this great document but still too many people have never taken the time to read the Constitution. That is why I encourage everyone to take a few minutes out of their busy day to sit down, read the Constitution, and truly appreciate its importance as the blueprint of our nation

It’s Time For the President To Take Responsibility

Sheriff Rich Nugent

President Obama and his administration continue to blame President Bush for our nation’s economic woes even though he’s been running the show with full support of both Democrat led Houses of Congresses for almost 2 years. It’s time for President Obama to stop blaming someone else for his own failures and take responsibility for the ineffective actions of his administration.

September 11

Sheriff Rich Nugent

When you hear those two words – September 11 – a flood of memories and raw emotion come rushing back. I remember the first plane hitting the twin towers and thinking it must have been some sort of horrible accident. Then the second plane hit, and we all knew that this was a deliberate act. By the time we learned that a third plane had struck the Pentagon and a group of heroic Americans caused yet a fourth plane to crash in Pennsylvania we knew our nation was under attack. We also knew that America had changed forever.
