Heroic Gainesville woman calls Rick Scott an asshole in a Starbucks

From YouTube user Stephen Bender, 04/05/2016:

Cara Jennings, a heroic and caffeinated former Lake Worth city commissioner who “has been called an anarchist, a feminist, a radical and a troublemaker,” gave Rick Scott an earful about his recently-signed bills.

  1. Notice Scott didn’t have the courtesy to listen to the woman he just walked out. How rude, he couldn’t listen to a person who was expressing her views. A decent man would have listened to her and at least give her an answer. It didn’t even phase him.

    Hillary Clinton has stated that being president is about “Hard Choices”. She’s right…but most of her hard choices, by her own admission, have been wrong.

    Hillary was opposed Gay marriage as late as 2013. She has since “evolved” on the issue. Bernie, in 1985, as Mayor of Burlington set aside a day to be known as “Gay Pride Day.”

    She aggressively promoted Fracking while she was Secretary of State. She supported the Keystone XL Pipeline until the polls indicated she needed to change her position. She pushed for TPP and referred to it as ”the Gold Standard” many times. Bernie Sanders has always opposed all of the above.

    She supports the death penalty and private, for-profit, prisons. She is against Free College Education.

    Hillary has received millions from Wall Street. Hillary’s top contributors: Morgan Stanley $636,564, Lehman Brothers $362,853, JP Morgan Chase $696,456, Goldman Sachs $760,740, Credit Suisse $318,120, Citigroup $824,402. Bernie’s top donors are labor unions, teacher unions, and nursing unions and has received over four million individual contributions averaging $28.

    Hillary was a supporter of the Iraq War. She has since said that choice was wrong. Bernie had the foresight and good judgement to oppose the war, repeatedly called out Bush for his deliberate misinformation and accurately predicted the catastrophic outcome. He has stated that he will, absolutely, defend the United States but that war should always be the last option.

    Hillary is against bringing back Glass Steagall Act, the repeal of which contributed to the greatest recession since 1929. Bernie wants to bring back this essential legislation.

    Hillary participated in Republican campaigns for years. Bernie has always been an independent and has always caucused with Democrats.
    Bernie Sanders marched with Martin Luther King Jr. and was arrested for protesting segregation. Hillary Clinton campaigned for Barry Goldwater, who opposed the Supreme Court’s power to enforce school integration, voted in the Senate against the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and whose campaign platform included his promise to repeal the legislation. The Clintons also celebrated “Confederate Flag Day” every year when Bill was governor of Arkansas.

    Hillary is against a $15 minimum wage. Ever since he became a United States Senator, Bernie has made it one of his top goals to get workers a $15 minimum wage.

    Hillary wants to “loosen” marijuana penalties. Bernie wants to completely abolish the federal prohibition of marijuana.

    Bernie’s health care plan is predicted to save each American $1200 a year plus in insurance and pharmaceutical drugs costs. Hillary opposes single payer healthcare and has received millions of dollars in contributions from pharmaceutical and health insurance companies.

    Bernie received the highest VFW award in his fight for veterans’ rights and services. Hillary Clinton has a documented history of being a warmongering hawk and as president would pursue the failed policy of endless war.

    Bernie has over 30 years of experience fighting for working Americans and is an honest and authentic candidate. Hillary…not so much.

    When you are President you don’t get a second chance. Fatal decisions send young American soldiers to war and often, disastrously, effect the course of events and destabilize the world.

    Ours is not a “Hard Choice” at all. We have Bernie Sanders – the leader who has made the right choices throughout his career. The choice is between a corporate sponsored and controlled candidate who will say and do anything that she believes will get her elected and an honest, compassionate and highly ethical man of consistent, unassailable integrity.

    Bernie has fought for the Middle Class, Labor, Women, Gay People, Civil Rights and Veterans his entire political career. He has demonstrated a profound, consistent and rare moral conviction to do what is right by the people he represents rather than corporations.

    No super PACs, no secret donors writing checks for tens and even hundreds of thousands of dollars, no private jets…just a sincere conviction to do what is right for the American people and the world.

  3. Totally LOVE this. Scott needs to get scared – and protested about EVERY CRAPPY THING HE HAS DONE!!

  4. OK, let’s break this down… This woman starts out by saying “we depend on these services” then goes on to saying her Medicaid was cut. Even then goes further saying “poor people like me.”
    So let me get this straight. She’s sitting in a Starbucks with a $5 drink, a laptop, and an iPhone and screaming she needs Medicaid and services. What I think she needs is a clue! You are not entitled to anything and this woman is what’s wrong with this country. Get off your A$$ instead of surfing the Internet with a $5 coffee and start pounding the pavement. As an employer, I can see a hundred reasons why this woman doesn’t have a good paying job. Instead of blaming the governor, she needs to look in the mirror, adjust her attitude, and learn to show some class.

    1. Someone under oath testified that he was approached by a Floridian official to flip the vote via software, he turned the job down but its obvious somebody else took the money. Rigged

  5. I LOVE her. And I love that she shut down Scott’s employee… who moved in to shut her down… but failed. We need MORE Americans like Cara Jennings… and less lying Politicians, who line their pockets… while hurting the People.

  6. Sorry, but this was not a conversation. Yes, Scott may well be a truly wealthy and souless fuck head, but really, what is gained by ranting in a public place. Even fuck heads deserve a chance to drink a cup of coffee. My challenge to whomever cares is can we actually find ways to talk to each other without ranting?

    1. he’s an elected official, out of his comfort zone. he had that coming and more. and how often is he in a position to hear regular everyday common folk? she should’ve tossed her coffee at him. i would have. sure, it’s a crime, but i would be a national hero.

  7. Everyone who sees him should now just say “SHAME!”… Even more for the preventable disaster that is Okeechobee because he accepted sugar money instead of following through on what the amendment called for! destroying the environment , killing off fish ,the fishing industry and the tourism industry all in one shot.
