Pirate Nation

By Tidings Podcast Network

Welcome to the radio show your overlords hoped we would never make. The Pirate Nation Podcast is a Florida based community and political activism show that was set sail by a group of local frustrated peasants that found themselves represented by local scalawag politicians. What started as a grass roots movement began to organize into a group of friends with a common interest in Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness. We broadcast from parts unknown somewhere within the Tampa Bay waters. We are the voice of the resistance. Welcome to Pirate Nation. "Best of the Bay 2021" by Tidings Media

What's Wrong with Pinellas County, Florida?
What's Wrong with Pinellas County, Florida?
Pinellas County, Florida is considered a "bellwether" county for national politics.   The term derives from the Middle English bellwether, which referred to the practice of placing a bell around the neck of a castrated ram (a wether) leading a flock of sheep. A shepherd could then note the movements of the animals by hearing the bell, even when the flock was not in sight. But what happens when Pinellas County gets things wrong, and what happens when trojan horse candidates infiltrate our political parties? Why didn't Pinellas County get in on the RED WAVE that swept across Florida in the primary of 2022?  Was it intentional? Eric Lynn v. Anna Paulina Luna for US House of Representatives, which one is the abortion extremist?  The Pirate Podcast weighs in on the single largest issue facing voters in the 2022 mid-term elections, and this may very well control the balance of power in Washington DC
