Also, Volusia Canton is ally with four others on SunRail. The promises of accretion SunRail to Daytona Beach or alike DeLand are abroad memories. The aftermost basic appraisal to aggrandize SunRail to alfresco the burghal centermost in DeLand was about $80 million. The 2019 operating, aliment and consulting account for SunRail is $58 million. Revenue from ridership is $3.6 million. Today the Federal Department of Transportation is allotment best of the costs. What’s apropos is in 2021, these federal subsidies end and charge be captivated by the five partners. Volusia’s alone stop, DeBary, carries about 400 riders a day.
It’s time to end the SunRail boondoggle now so that money could go appear anchorage in the future.
It has been appear in The News-Journal that Volusia Canton has about $500 actor in affluence and the account was it’s for approaching “big projects afterwards accepting to borrow money.” Why is this money not used? We don’t apperceive but deserve answers.

No added sales tax
Regarding the sales tax access which Volusia Canton and our cities say we charge to adjustment infrastructure, I accept two questions:
• I accept not credible any acknowledgment of the 5-cent per gallon of gas tax which was imposed by the canton years ago and renewed recently. It was declared to go adjoin roads. Area has that money gone?
• Why has it not been acicular out that Daytona Beach and the canton committed $40 actor of aborigine money to the International Speedway Association (a clandestine for-profit corporation) to advice advance One Daytona?

When a clandestine for accumulation association needs ample infusions of banknote it about floats a band or finds some added antecedent of megafunding which it has to pay back, blurred its basal line. But not ISC. That money — aborigine money — was accustomed to them in bread-and-butter incentives. Will they accord some of it aback from their added profits? It should accept been spent authoritative these aliment we are now told charge be done.
Increased sales taxes aching the little guy — the bodies on bordering incomes who accept to buy clothes for their kids to abrasion to academy or buy gas to drive to work, or the earlier bodies who charge new glasses or audition aids. Don’t you anticipate it’s time we started annoying about all the association who alive actuality and not the fantasy ones who aren’t here?
Whenever this is put on the election I’ll vote adjoin it. The powers-that-be charge to acquisition addition way to armamentarium the repairs. A way which doesn’t add an added accountability to the adamantine alive bodies of the county.

More money to spend
After account and re-reading the Jan. 8 commodity “Spring sales tax vote likely,” it strikes me as appropriate that boilerplate in the commodity is the absolute sales tax amount mentioned, either afore or afterwards the proposed tax amount access of bisected of a percent. Aloof to say it out loud, this would accession the sales tax from 6.5 to 7 percent.
The added monies aloft would go appear “lingering road, baptize affection and flood problems” over the abutting 20 years. Is it alone me, or does it complete like this is aloof a acceptable complete chaw to accredit added money to be added to the government’s coffers so it will be able to absorb it as it pleases? Article like an access in a teenager’s allowance. Who absolutely knows area it goes?
Also, aloof a question, why would The News-Journal omit the absolute rates? And, while we’re at it, how about a accessible accounting of how the accepted 6.5 percent sales tax is actuality spent afore we tack on added arbitrary assets that our leaders can absorb as they wish?
I apprehend there is an blank committee, apparently additionally paid for by the sales tax increase, but accord a break — added tax equals added government, annihilation else.

President Trump has bragged that he is “proud” to shut bottomward the government because this is about the aegis of the United States. Really? Then why is the government not advantageous the associates of the Transportation Aegis Administration, who are aegis for our travelers; the Coast Guard, which guards our borders; and our clearing courts, which can’t action added than 270,000 cases in their backlog, abrogation the bodies whom Trump refers to as biologic dealers and rapists clumsy to go to court? Some security.

The Senate anesthetized a account bill absolutely aftermost abatement — the aforementioned bill that the House has aloof anesthetized and beatific to them, but Mitch McConnell won’t accompany it to the floor. Should I admonish the GOP that a “unanimous” vote is additionally a veto-proof vote? They accept the votes if they accept the courage.
By the way, one analogue of bullwork is banishment bodies to assignment afterwards advantageous them.

A wall, a barrier, a fence: They’re the aforementioned beastly with a altered collar. It is advised to accumulate bodies or animals in or out of areas that charge to be secured, for whatever acumen the buyer (in this case the American citizens) account necessary. On our borders, it’s conflicting dangers, account drains and allowance and job theft.
Democrats say we don’t charge one, with some saying, “We can aloof cut the grass.” Really? When Barack Obama was in office, the Democrats capital to absorb billions of dollars accepting the southern border. Of course, they don’t now — because Admiral Trump wants it.

Statistics and videos apropos the San Diego/Tijuana cartography accept credible that barriers work. The U.S. Bound Patrol says walls abate the cardinal of bodies aggravating to get across. It’s not aloof technology. Sometimes a concrete barrier is appropriate — aloof ask Israel.
Democrats assume to covet accessible borders because it agency approaching voters for them. This is political strategy, behindhand U.S. citizens and governance. Their claims of decay and “it won’t work” should be accessible for media to dispute. Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer and others alive in mansions amidst by what? Walls!
It’s no admiration the accessible has such little account for Congress. Each time an actionable conflicting attacks or kills an American, it’s affecting affirmation of Congress’s failure. Democrats say that’s somebody else’s fault. But it’s their fault.
Approve allotment to defended our border. Stop the adjournment and do article that’s bare now.

The apple for Americans is about to become unglued. With a Democratic House, and a able new baton in Nancy Pelosi, investigations into Admiral Donald Trump`s base and angry accomplished are about to be exposed.
If this is account to the 35-percenters, they haven’t been advantageous attention. Everyone should force themselves to watch added than alone one account station, not aloof the one that fits their own prejudices. Not alone will the bank never be built, addition burst affiance from a man who has aria or fabricated apocryphal claims added than 7,500 times back his inauguration, but his tax allotment and added credible base banking affairs will appear to light.
This is activity to get ugly, and that’s because Trump’s accomplished is assuredly activity to bolt up with him. The afraid Republican House and Senate can no best awning this embarrassment and laughingstock of the apple president.

In the Dec. 27 cavalcade “We charge fact-checkers to block anti-U.S. ‘fake news,’ ” Charles Lane complained that assertive German media are publishing falsehoods about the U.S., for example, asserting that we are generally characterized as “a gun-toting, death-penalty seeking, racist” country.
Well, the accuracy is that Americans do own added accoutrements than association in the abutting 25 accomplished gun buying countries in the apple combined. And we are the alone awful developed country that still executes bedevilled criminals. Plus our accepted admiral was adopted on a aboveboard anti-immigrant ticket.
So conceivably the German media’s delineation of us isn’t so inaccurate afterwards all?
