It’s Christmas meets politics in a beautiful “Let’s go Brandon” light display in Florida. The Christmas lights display is at the home of Martin Hyde, a former professional soccer player and current business owner, and a Republican who is campaigning against the state’s 16th congressional district against current Trump-backed Representative Vern Buchanan.

Each day he keeps the display up, he is fined $150, according to the Sarasota Herald-Tribune. Hyde’s display caught the attention of his homeowner’s association which the Tribune reports sent Hyde a “friendly reminder” that signs aren’t permitted and then “dangled the possibility of a $150-a-day fine if he doesn’t comply.”

Each lit letter is nine inches tall, sitting on his second-story balcony of his Sarasota home above an American flag light display and next to an inflatable Santa Claus. “It’s fully in keeping with my personality and my campaign,” said Hyde. “Anybody who doesn’t like it, it’s one street…don’t come.” Hyde said, “did I know it was provocative? Absolutely. Did I expect it to take on this level? No.”

“I’ll take it down when it suits me” says Hyde, who has been endorsed by Trump’s first national security advisor, Michael Flynn. Hyde also hired Roger Stone, a former Trump advisor, as a campaign consultant.

Hyde, who is a Trump supporter, has said he will keep the display up through Christmas regardless of HOA fines posed on him. “They may well fine me $150 a day. It’s not really a terrible concern to me. I will take it down when the holidays are over. I’ll take it down when it suits me.”

    HOAs are a pretend authority that creates certain rules that they can’t enforce. Leave the lights up and for the HOA… GFYS

    Most HOA fines need to allow 15-30 days to correct a violation, before imposing a fine.

    LETS GO BRANDON

    So the HOA is giving the first Amendment the “Flying Fickle Finger” as “Laugh – In” used to say. One needs to see what is wrong with Buchanan. Might be a good reason. Actually I prefer Hyde but don’t like political pressure that tries to control our votes.

    HOA’s have taken too much power here in Florida and many people will not live in HOA.

CA to provide all low-income illegal immigrants health care at a cost of ‘$2.7 billion a year’

On Thursday, California Governor Gavin Newsom signed a $307.9 billion operating budget “that pledges to make all low-income adults eligible for the state’s Medicaid program by 2024 regardless of their immigration status” reports the Associated Press.

The guarantee of free health care for low-income immigrants here illegally, is a “move that will provide coverage for an additional 764,000 people at an eventual cost of about $2.7 billion a year” adds the AP.

According to the Kaiser Family Foundation, a health care nonprofit, people living in the country illegally in 2020 accounted for roughly 7% of the population nationwide, or about 22.1 million people. The border crisis and number of migrants entering the United States illegally has skyrocketed to historic levels since 2020 when President Joe Biden took office.

Medicaid nationwide is the current combination of federal and state governments assisting Americans and low-income adults and children to receive free health care, but the federal government does not cover those living here illegally.

“Some states, including California, have used their own tax dollars to cover a portion of health care expenses for some low-income immigrants” reports the AP. “Now, California wants to be the first to do that for everyone.”

“This will represent the biggest expansion of coverage in the nation since the start of the Affordable Care Act in 2014,” said Anthony Wright, executive director of Health Access California, a statewide consumer health care advocacy group. “In California we recognize (that) everybody benefits when everyone is covered.”

While 92% of Californians currently have some form of health insurance, “that will change once this budget is fully implemented, as adults living in the country illegally make up one of the largest groups of people without insurance in the state” the AP concludes.
