Larry Metz Needs to Represent Lake County

Larry Metz Needs to Represent Lake County

Metz Continues to Make One Bad Decision after Another

When Representative Larry Metz was on the Lake County School Board, he joined Jimmy Conner and other big spending School Board Members to crush the Lake County School District with over $600 million in debt.  Most of the district’s money woes of today and the consternation created by that board still permeates.  Metz was a disaster as a School Board Member.

While in the Florida House, his primary focus was on national and state issues to get attention and when he focused on local issues his decisions were costly.  He led the opposition to the North Lake County Hospital District property tax based on a small group of naysayers and his efforts were soundly defeated in last November’s election.  Yet, he continues to meddle in a matter that the people have spoken on.

Now, he is pushing an effort to undo economic development funding in Florida and defund the state’s tourism department.  His little band in the House calls it corporate welfare despite voting to fund these agencies in the past.

Someone please tell Representative Metz that tourism and economic development is a big deal in the state of Florida and a lot of jobs depend on tourism.  In fact, Lake County’s burgeoning tourism industry is finally seeing some real growth and Metz’s efforts will sledgehammer funding from the state.

You know, it is about time Larry Metz represents the people of Lake County instead of his handful of special interests.

  1. SHOOT THE PIANO PLAYER – A washed-up classical pianist, bottoms out after his wife’s suicide — stroking the keys in a Parisian dive bar. The waitress, Lena (Marie Dubois), is falling in love with Charlie, who it turns out is not who he says he is. [Maybe it was Bob McKee who knows?] When his brothers get in trouble with gangsters, Charlie inadvertently gets dragged into the chaos and is forced to rejoin the family he once fled. Fooled about like the Lake County Marie!

    Where do people like this come from? They float up from the south retired way before their time. And they settle just outside the Town of Howey. You know the neo-con quasi-government that among other things abuses old decorated veteran’s. They know absolutely everything and if you don’t believe that, just ask them! But more important than that the join the closed shop union called the Lake County Republican Executive Committee and hob nob with all it’s secret little clubs scattered around the county working to install and keep their chosen one’s in office so as to share the wealth so to speak.

    Remember the summer of 2008 when ole Joe come sashaying down from “up nawth” looking like an old mafia Don with all those body guards? The first thing they did was over throw our local REC leadership and take control of Lake County. It reminded me of when Jeb Bush floated up from Venezuela to Miami-Dade County in the summer of 1980 where he had been running a bank for close family friends and leveraged the takeover of their REC in preparation for his Poppy’s run for president that year. There is absolutely no doubt whatsoever that was a major shift in the morals and ethics of Florida politics’ in both so called parties.

    Those old enough to remember the day when we humans were at least cordial to each other in public are probably wondering what went so badly wrong over this last half century can certainly see the semblance of people like REC member Marie Dubois and other political hacks like Nancy Pelosi, Maxine Waters and so many more from both parties. Remember Jimmy Conner and the REC went with Cuban Mobster offspring Ted Cruz as a savior of last resort for their dark side antics. It failed because the people are sick and tired of this!

    Believe it or not, which is hard to understand for those who do not know the truth, Lake County once had a long history of ethical statesmen for whom the real people of Lake County was very proud. Lake County like Florida as a whole was primarily Democrat long after Eisenhower had to import Republicans into the state to fill his political patronage positions of post master’s.

    In fact Florida remained primarily Democrat until the early 1980’s when a cadre of Communists became disgruntled with the Florida legislature because they refused to cave in and allow single persons and known homosexuals to adopt children and raise them into their lifestyles. Herein was the birth of the so called RINO’s the same kinds who just last Friday showed President Trump that they are really just as Democrat – Communist as their Democrat so called counterparts. It’s not necessary to lean across the isle when you are sleeping in the same sack!

    In 2017 Lake County Florida can be proud to claim their own Nancy Pelosi type idiot. Marie Dubois with her statement “It is a shame that Henretta took up so much space that other comments may be overlooked.” When everyone with brains who reads this publication can see as plain as day the comments are stacked first one last and last one first. But, that is the lack of mentality in politics today! The truth is the Communist want to control our tongues like they control the lame stream media outlets! A REAL American Patriot would be Proud of Herlong!

    And, her remark “It is also a shame that her comment appears to have no relationship to the article on Representative Metz” While the comments and Communist Goals are not directed at Rep. Metz the facts go directly to the culture he thrives in. And her remark goes to prove just how successful the Communist party of the USA has been in the last greater part of a century.

    For those real patriots of Lake County looking for a real old hero who tried to save our country – one who most likely would be standing beside and behind President Trump if he were alive today regardless of his party affiliation perhaps you would like to know the man and his accomplishments.

    Albert Sydney Herlong Jr. (February 14, 1909 – December 27, 1995) was a U.S. Representative from Florida.
    Herlong was born in the small community of Manistee, Alabama in 1909, and moved with his parents to Marion County, Florida in 1912. He attended the public schools of Sumter and Lake counties and graduated from Leesburg High School in Leesburg, Florida. Herlong attended the University of Florida in Gainesville, Florida, where he was a member of Pi Kappa Phi Fraternity (Alpha Epsilon Chapter), and graduated in 1930. He was admitted to The Florida Bar in 1930 and started his law practice in Leesburg.

    Herlong was elected county judge of Lake County, Florida, and served from 1937 to 1949. He served as city attorney of Leesburg from 1946 to 1948. He held a reserve commission as captain in the U.S. Army and was called to active duty in the Judge Advocate General’s Department in August 1941. He was discharged in 1942 due to physical disability. He served two enlistments in the Florida State Guard. He served as president of the Florida State Baseball League in 1947 and 1948.

    Herlong was elected as a Democrat to the Eighty-first and to the nine succeeding Congresses (January 3, 1949 – January 3, 1969).

    On January 10, 1963, Herlong delivered a speech outlining what he believed were 45 goals of communism.
    He was not a candidate for reelection in 1968 to the Ninety-first Congress. He resumed his practice of law, and was appointed as a member of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission in 1969, and served until 1973.
    Herlong died December 27, 1995.

    America and Lake County needs a lot more Sid Herlong’s and Donald Trump’s and a lot less programmed useful idiot’s – always ready to destroy the truth’s and debunk the evidence of their long history of the destruction of America and our youth.

    AND GEE, what a shame it must be for all these people who have been born, raised and trained into an environment of control, control and control some more with all those little cliché’s and titles designed to make the real people either keep their mouths shut or pay the consequences for telling the truth and nothing but the truth so help them GOD. You might be a conspiracy theorist or even worse, you might be a racist. You might be anything except a red blooded American Patriot who loves their country, salutes their AMERICAN FLAG and reads The KING JAMES version of the Bible. And oh yea – keeps a gun handy for snakes!


    We have plenty more facts to share just as soon as President Trump gets his DOJ up and running with his own people.

  2. This is an excellent list for readers who have enough patience and intelligent to read every word in order to achieve a better understand what is happening. The Democrat Party is the flying carpet for the communists, Fabian socialists, Marxists, progressives, liberals, Islamists, left-wing radicals, anti-capitalists, un-American union thugs and cultural Marxism is also the glue that holds them all together?.

    Keep in mind the RINO leaders/followers in the Republican Party are hell-bent to help Obama and the Muslim Brotherhood add America to their list of nations they are moving towards a global caliphate.
    And, the media is their public relations group helping to destroy us.

    In fact, they BOTH are a party to our destruction however, for different reasons; it all revolves around our Constitution, National/Homeland Security and they placed Cultural Marxism above each one.
    Ask a RINO about Shariah/Islamic law in the United States of America and you will get a “deer in the headlight look like Sen. Graham has when asked about Islamic Doctrine. Go to YouTube and watch Sen. Graham publically admit his ignorance when he states, “I Don’t Know What The Islamic Threat Doctrine Is”… which is the title of a video.

    Why is this important? Sen. Graham sits on the Armed Services Committee and has failed to do his job or he would know all about the Islamic Threat Doctrine, Muslim Brotherhood, global Caliphate, and the extent the Muslim Brotherhood has infiltrated our government in the White House, agencies, congress and our judicial system.

  3. It is a shame that Henretta took up so much space that other comments may be overlooked. It is also a shame that her comment appears to have no relationship to the article on Representative Metz.
    Representative Metz is one of the most principled people in politics that I have ever encountered. He is consistent in his belief that limited Constitutional government is the proper government. He is consistent in his belief in free market solutions. He is consistent in his belief that every problem or situation does not require a government program.
    Corporate welfare is when government through taxes and fees takes money from hard working citizens to pay entities that should be paying their own way.Why should we require citizens and families pay taxes to encourage tourism to places that they may not be able to afford to visit? These corporate interests make huge amounts of profit (even those like the Hospitals that are designated non-profit) and people of little or no means are helping to pay. Theme parks, sports arenas, hospitals,hotels and the like can well afford to pay for advertising to entice folks to visit.
    I am a huge fan of Larry Metz and I wholeheartedly support his efforts as an elected Representative on behalf of my District.

    The Communist Takeover of America – 45 Declared Goals – From Greg Swank – 12-4-2002
    You are about to read a list of 45 goals that found their way down the halls of our great Capitol back in 1963. As you read this, 39 years later, you should be shocked by the events that have played themselves out. I first ran across this list 3 years ago but was unable to attain a copy and it has bothered me ever since. Recently, Jeff Rense posted it on his site and I would like to thank him for doing so. http://www.rense(dot)com

    Communist Goals (1963) Congressional Record–Appendix, pp. A34-A35 January 10, 1963

    Mr. HERLONG. Mr. Speaker, Mrs. Patricia Nordman of De Land, Fla., is an ardent and articulate opponent of communism, and until recently published the De Land Courier, which she dedicated to the purpose of alerting the public to the dangers of communism in America.

    At Mrs. Nordman’s request, I include in the RECORD, under unanimous consent, the following “Current Communist Goals,” which she identifies as an excerpt from “The Naked Communist,” by Cleon Skousen:

    [From “The Naked Communist,” by Cleon Skousen]

    1. U.S. acceptance of coexistence as the only alternative to atomic war.

    2. U.S. willingness to capitulate in preference to engaging in atomic war.

    3. Develop the illusion that total disarmament [by] the United States would be a demonstration of moral strength.

    4. Permit free trade between all nations regardless of Communist affiliation and regardless of whether or not items could be used for war.

    5. Extension of long-term loans to Russia and Soviet satellites.

    6. Provide American aid to all nations regardless of Communist domination.

    7. Grant recognition of Red China. Admission of Red China to the U.N.

    8. Set up East and West Germany as separate states in spite of Khrushchev’s promise in 1955 to settle the German question by free elections under supervision of the U.N.

    9. Prolong the conferences to ban atomic tests because the United States has agreed to suspend tests as long as negotiations are in progress.

    10. Allow all Soviet satellites individual representation in the U.N.

    11. Promote the U.N. as the only hope for mankind. If its charter is rewritten, demand that it be set up as a one-world government with its own independent armed forces. (Some Communist leaders believe the world can be taken over as easily by the U.N. as by Moscow. Sometimes these two centers compete with each other as they are now doing in the Congo.)

    12. Resist any attempt to outlaw the Communist Party.

    13. Do away with all loyalty oaths.

    14. Continue giving Russia access to the U.S. Patent Office.

    15. Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States.

    16. Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions by claiming their activities violate civil rights.

    17. Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers’ associations. Put the party line in textbooks.

    18. Gain control of all student newspapers.

    19. Use student riots to foment public protests against programs or organizations which are under Communist attack.

    20. Infiltrate the press. Get control of book-review assignments, editorial writing, policy-making positions.

    21. Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion pictures.

    22. Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all forms of artistic expression. An American Communist cell was told to “eliminate all good sculpture from parks and buildings, substitute shapeless, awkward and meaningless forms.”

    23. Control art critics and directors of art museums. “Our plan is to promote ugliness, repulsive, meaningless art.”

    24. Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them “censorship” and a violation of free speech and free press.

    25. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.

    26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural, healthy.”

    27. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with “social” religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity, which does not need a “religious crutch.”

    28. Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of “separation of church and state.”

    29. Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis.

    30. Discredit the American Founding Fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the “common man.”

    31. Belittle all forms of American culture and discourage the teaching of American history on the ground that it was only a minor part of the “big picture.” Give more emphasis to Russian history since the Communists took over.

    32. Support any socialist movement to give centralized control over any part of the culture–education, social agencies, welfare programs, mental health clinics, etc.

    33. Eliminate all laws or procedures which interfere with the operation of the Communist apparatus.

    34. Eliminate the House Committee on Un-American Activities.

    35. Discredit and eventually dismantle the FBI.

    36. Infiltrate and gain control of more unions.

    37. Infiltrate and gain control of big business.

    38. Transfer some of the powers of arrest from the police to social agencies. Treat all behavioral problems as psychiatric disorders which no one but psychiatrists can understand [or treat].

    39. Dominate the psychiatric profession and use mental health laws as a means of gaining coercive control over those who oppose Communist goals.

    40. Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce.

    41. Emphasize the need to raise children away from the negative influence of parents. Attribute prejudices, mental blocks and retarding of children to suppressive influence of parents.

    42. Create the impression that violence and insurrection are legitimate aspects of the American tradition; that students and special-interest groups should rise up and use [“]united force[“] to solve economic, political or social problems.

    43. Overthrow all colonial governments before native populations are ready for self-government.

    44. Internationalize the Panama Canal.

    45. Repeal the Connally reservation so the United States cannot prevent the World Court from seizing jurisdiction [over domestic problems. Give the World Court jurisdiction] over nations and individuals alike.

    Note by Webmaster: The Congressional Record back this far has not be digitized and posted on the Internet.

    It will probably be available at your nearest library that is a federal repository. Call them and ask them. Your college library is probably a repository. This is an excellent source of government records. Another source are your Congress Critters. They should be more than happy to help you in this matter. You will find the Ten Planks of the Communist Manifesto interesting at this point.
