Roy G. Callahan, USN, Ret.

1529 NW 143rd Street Gainesville, Florida 32606 Tel: (352) 332-9144 Fax: (352) 332-9144 call6603@bellsouth.net Sunday, February 02, 2014 If Americans in general and Floridians in particular are wondering why their personal freedom is supplanted by laws and regulations limiting their liberty all they need to do is look at the bills their state representatives author and co-sponsor In preparation for the 2014 legislative session, Representative Keith Perry authored three bills and co-sponsored five bills that follow. Examination reveals most set up a system or bureaucracy that grows government and micromanages the lives of Floridians. Most support and enhance the Administrative State that is destructive to American freedom.  HB 225 Child Safety Devices in Motor Vehicles requires parents  If the child is 7 5 years of age or younger and less than .4 feet 9 inches in height, provide for protection of the child 19 by properly using a crash-tested, federally approved child 20 restraint device.  For children aged through 3 years, such restraint device must be a separate carrier or a vehicle manufacturer's integrated child seat  For children aged 4 through 7 5 years and less than 4 feet 9 inches in height, a separate carrier or, an integrated child seat must, or a seat belt may be used ―Any person who violates this section commits a moving violation, punishable as provided in chapter and shall have 3 points assessed against his or her driver license as set forth in s. 322.27.:‖ In lieu of the penalty specified in s. 318.18 and the assessment of points, a person who violates this section may elect, with the court's approval, to participate in a child restraint safety program approved by the chief judge of the circuit in which the violation occurs, and, upon completing such program, the penalty specified in chapter 318 and associated costs may be waived at the court's discretion and the assessment of points shall be waived. The child restraint safety program must use a course approved by the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles, and the fee for the course must bear a reasonable relationship to the cost of providing the course. Representative Perry and his cohorts use the mantra ―it’s for the children.‖ The problem is it’s not their children they are talking about; they are talking about your children. They arrogantly believe they have a solution and a right to micromanage your life using the force of law to do it. In this instance, the first seat belt law was a federal law which took effect on January 1, 1968. It required all vehicles (except buses) to be fitted with seat belts in all designated seating positions. State legislators willingly take federal money that comes with laws like this Page 1 of 7 CODING: Words stricken are deletions; words underlined are additions.

making themselves complicit to tyranny and ultimately irrelevant. They work for the federal government, their own aggrandizement; not you who casts the vote. HB 395 Growth Management – This bill attempts to mitigate the effects of Agenda 21, a United Nations Program that that violates Article 1, Section 10 of the U.S. Constitution HB 395includes  Regional Planning Councils (Regional Planning Councils bear a likeness, purpose, intent and replicate the Soviets in the Soviet Union)  Adds a new subsection that does not eliminate vestiges of Agenda 21. 163.3167 Scope of act.— 1 9. Each local government shall address in its comprehensive plan, as enumerated in this chapter: (a) The water supply sources necessary to meet and achieve 19 the existing and projected water use demand for the established 20 planning period, considering the applicable plan developed 21 pursuant to s. 373.709. 22 (b) The protection of private property rights. Section 2. Paragraph (i) is added to subsection (6) of section 163.3177, Florida Statutes, to read: 163.3177 Required and optional elements of comprehensive plan; studies and surveys.— (6) In addition to the requirements of subsections (1)(5), the comprehensive plan shall include the following elements: (i)1. A property rights element that protects private property rights, in recognition of the legitimate and often competing public and private interests in land use regulations and other government action. The property rights element shall set forth the principles, guidelines, standards, and strategies to guide the local government's decisions and program implementation with respect to the following objectives: a. Consideration of the impact to private property rights of all proposed development orders, plan amendments, ordinances, and other government decisions. b. Encouragement of economic development. c. Use of alternative, innovative solutions to provide equal or better protection than the comprehensive plan. d. Consideration of the degree of harm created by noncompliance with the comprehensive plan's provisions. 2. Each county and each municipality within the county shall, within 1 year after adopting its property rights element, adopt land development regulations consistent with this paragraph. This bill is a dichotomy. Representative Perry knows what Agenda 21 is. I furnished him all the information he needs, including a copy of the Alabama Law rewritten for Florida that forces Florida to obey Article 1, Section 10, U.S. Constitution as it pertains to individual states and their dealing and interactions with foreign powers.2 Agenda 21 and ICLEI are both United Nations programs designed to corrupt and destroy the American concept of property rights.

Representative Perry’s attempt to mitigate the effects of Agenda 21 does nothing to eliminate Agenda 21 or ICLEI from Florida’s landscape. The attached PDF regarding this issue speaks for itself. Mr. Perry asked me to call him regarding this Article 1, Section 10 violation. I made the call and the following appointment. Representative Perry decided Common Core (Communist Core), the new rage at the time was more important than discussing this issue. I stupidly let him change the subject. Ultimately, two other Birchers and I gave Mr. Perry all the information he needed on Common Core (Communist Core) and he kept telling us his wife was against it. His secretary Caroline Anderson told Walt Boyer and me he wasn’t going to do anything on ―Education‖ let alone common core. I called his cards by adding one sentence to a message I sent him from the John Birch Society regarding Communist Core. He anointed me with the name ―bigot‖ and other expletives because I object to dumbing down of Florida students and the trash common core condones and teaches. It is within this contest that we now come to HJR 613 – a bill he titled ―legislative term limits.‖ HJR 613Legislative Term Limits. This bill seeks to revise Article III, Section 15, and Article VI, Section 4, and Article 12 of the Florida Constitution into something Floridians would find in California, New York, and like environs. This bill is written by a progressive politician living in the People’s Republic of Alachua County. He labels himself conservative but this bill says otherwise because it turns the Florida Constitution on its head. Representative Perry knows the founders gave the House of Representatives two year terms because the house has the power of the purse and two year terms are designed to make members accountable to the people that elect them. The host of laws that limit individual freedom and property rights are written by politicians who run for reelection every two years. If Representative Perry and his cohorts can do this kind of damage with 2 year terms, just think of what they can do with four years; SECTION 15. Terms and qualifications of legislators.— (a) SENATORS. Senators shall be elected for staggered terms of six four years. The legislature must divide the senate districts as evenly as possible into three classes, those from oddnumbered districts in the years the numbers of which are multiples of four and those from evennumbered districts in even-numbered years the numbers of which are not multiples of four; except, at the election next following a reapportionment, some senators shall be elected for terms of two years when necessary to maintain staggered terms.

Proposing an amendment to the State Constitution to increase the terms for which state senators are elected from 4 years to 6 years, increase the terms for which state representatives are elected from 2 years to 4 years, and increase limits on the period for which a person may be elected as state senator or state representative, generally from 8 consecutive years to 12 consecutive years. BILLS REPRESENTATIVE PERRY CO-SPONSORED CS/HB 73 Sexual Offenders. - An Act relating to sexual offenders;  Amends s. 948.30, F.S.;  Prohibits certain probationers or community controlees from viewing, accessing, owning, or possessing any obscene, pornographic, or sexually stimulating material, regardless of such material's relevance to the offender's deviant behavior pattern; Representative Perry’s co-sponsorship of this bill represents a dichotomy since he has no problem with public schools teaching the smut under the guise of sex education that generates the problems this bill supposedly addresses. CS/HB 89 Threatened use of force which is An act relating to defense of life, home, and property; creating s. 776.001, F.S.;  Providing legislative finding and intent; providing that the defensive display of a weapon or firearm, including the discharge of a firearm for the purpose of a warning shot, does not constitute the use of deadly force; providing immunity from prosecution for persons acting in defense of life, home, and property from violent attack or the threat of violent attack through certain displays of or uses of force;  Creates s. 776.0011, F.S.; providing definitions;  Creates. 776.033, F.S.; providing for the justifiable defensive display of a firearm or weapon in certain circumstances;  Amends s. 776.06, F.S.; limiting a provision authorizing use of deadly force by law enforcement or correctional officers;  Creating s. 775.0878, F.S.; providing an exemption from minimum sentence requirements related to use of a weapon or firearm for persons acting in self-defense or defense of others;  Authorizing a departure from minimum sentence requirements related to use of a weapon or firearm for persons convicted of certain offenses who meet specified requirements; providing an effective date. This bill should make it harder for race baiting politicians like Senator Smith, Al Sharpton and others to tie up the courts with frivolous law suits and legal maneuvers. It also undermines the efforts of likeminded prosecutors who use their position to push an anti-gun and anti-second, agenda. HB 147 Concrete Masonry Education - An act relating to concrete masonry education;  Providing a short title;  Creating the Florida Concrete Masonry Education Council, Inc.;  Providing powers and duties of the council  Providing restrictions;  Providing for appointment and terms of the governing board of the council; Page 5 of 7 CODING: Words stricken are deletions; words underlined are additions.

 Authorizing the council to accept grants, donations, contributions, and gifts under certain circumstances;  Authorizing the council to make payments to other organizations under certain 10 circumstances;  Providing for collection of a voluntary assessment on concrete masonry units;  Requiring manufacturers who elect to pay the assessment to commit to paying the assessment for a specified period;  Requiring the council to adopt bylaws This bill creates another bureaucracy that spends tax money using the label ―education.‖ HB 367 Financial literacy in Instruction in Public Schools - A bill to be entitled An act relating to high school graduation requirements;  Amending ss. 1003.428 (High School graduation requirements.)  1003.4282, F.S.;  Revising the required credits for high school graduation and a standard high school diploma to include one-half credit for instruction in personal financial literacy and seven and one-half, rather than eight, credits in electives; providing an effective date. WHEREAS, many young people in this state graduate from high 11 school without having a basic knowledge of financial literacy and money management, and WHEREAS, the Legislature finds that, in light of the recent economic challenges nationwide, sound financial management skills are vitally important to all Floridians, particularly high school students, and WHEREAS, the Legislature also finds that requiring educational instruction in financial literacy and money management as a prerequisite to high school graduation in this state will better prepare young people for adulthood by providing them the requisite knowledge to achieve financial stability and independence, and WHEREAS, adoption of this act, which may be cited as the ―Personal Financial Literacy Education Act,‖ will make Florida the sixth state in the nation to require instruction in financial literacy as a prerequisite for high school graduation and a standard high school diploma, A bill to be entitled. This bill adds curriculum to FS 1003.42, a statute that mandates teaching and provides for the indoctrination of Marxist-Humanist-Secularism to future generations of Florida’s youth. Researching FS 1003.42 reveals this statute was created for No Child Left Behind (Bush’s program), the precursor to Communist Core. Both ―programs‖ are designed to dumb down, eradicate, and manipulate teachings about this country’s history and heritage. Both create a pathway to render the Declaration of Independence meaningless and both subvert with the goal of destroying our Constitution and Bill of Right thus extinguishing American exceptionalism one generation at a time. Representative Perry is a member of the house education committee. His support for this bill does not surprise me since he commissioned me to do the research on FS 1003.42, and when completed, refused to act on or discuss the findings. HB 581 Flood Insurance
