Hallandale Beach Blog - A common sense public policy overview offering a critical perspective on the current events, politics, govt., public policy, sports scene and pop culture of the U.S., South Florida and Europe, especially the UK and Sweden.
In particular, Broward & Miami-Dade County, and the cities of Hallandale Beach, Hollywood & Aventura. Trust me when I tell you, this part of Florida is NOT the Land of Lincoln.

Another Disaster for Broward's Ilene Lieberman. But's who's counting? (Me and many others!)

At 5 p.m. on the day of what I was assured by the Broward County Govt. Center would the LAST public meeting of the Broward County Courthouse Taskforce, the webpage the county specifically constructed for purposes of communicating with the public STILL didn't have today's meeting information on it.

The meeting's already over.

Another great moral victory(!) for Broward County Comm. Ilene Lieberman, who, last year, wanted to prevent the mass transit-riding public from actually populating a proposed MTA, since it would/could actually result in regular citizens using that group to occasionally holding her, the Commission and the Broward MPO to account for the disastrous transportation planning in this county that I've cited so many times.

The longstanding disconnect between connecting Tri-Rail and Fort Lauderdale Stadium for events there being the most obvious to anyone who's actually paying attention.

Of course, now, the Orioles have flown the coop, probably for good.

Paging Mayor Jack Seiler!

See my August 25th post of last year on how Lieberman's fingerprints were all over that particular effort, which South Florida's media completely ignored.


Naturally, right in the middle of things, because it's the way things are done in Broward County, was someone from the Broward League of Cities, one of the most ardent opponents in the state of grass-root citizen participation in any kind of oversight capacity.

In this case, the elected head of the organization for this year, Margaret Bates.

But they are just the two most visible targets of sheer incompetency and mis-management

on this effort.

Below is the rest of the list of today's culpable parties.

See anyone you know?

The next time you run into one of these characters, why don't you look them straight in the face and ask point blank: "Why should YOUR opinion count for anything if you're paying SO little attention to this matter, that you didn't even notice that your own group's webpage hasn't been changed in five weeks, and made accurate for the public?"

Thumbs up! What a night! #HOLLYWOODFL based photographer and entrepreneur Esther Chuang with a very elated Hollywood Mayor-elect Josh Levy at his Victory Party, held at Leo Anato's Atelier3/AT3 on Harrison Street & S. 19th Avenue, Hollywood. AT3's great environment and the amazing variety of food prepared by chef Kevin Dreifuss, former owner/chef of now-closed ENDS MEAT restaurant, was SUPERB! November 8, 2016 Esther Chuang, Morro Dois Irmãos, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, 2015
Above, perhaps my most-favorite photo ever of Esther, which is really saying something considering the THOUSANDS that I've actually seen of her, from all over the world. But despite the fact that you can't actually see it here, trust me, her amazing smile and inner and external beauty are there. This photo is an even more amazing achievement when you know the backstory of what it took for Esther to get to the top of the mountain, since it's NOT for the faint of heart. Next time you see her, ask her about that! Morro Dois Irmãos, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, on her birthday, July 10, 2015. That's the Christ The Redeemer statue atop Mount Corcovado way out in the horizon on the top of another mountain, to the left of her head. To the right is the world famous beach of Ipanema and to the left is the equally famous beach of Copacabana. In case you forgot what the Christ the Redeemer statue in Rio looks like, up close, plus the Amazon area of Brazil that Esther grew up near in Manaus, here's another Brazilian beauty to connect-the-dots for you: Gisele Bündchen, aka @Gisele.

Abençoado por Deus e bonito por natureza!✨ ������

A floresta Amazônica tem um papel fundamental no equilíbrio do clima na Terra e, portanto, na vida de cada um de nós. Nos últimos anos a proteção diminuiu e o desmatamento aumentou drasticamente. E o que já era ruim, pode ficar ainda pior. Se as medidas que o governo vem tomando não forem vetadas, nosso futuro estará ameaçado. Diga NÃO à diminuição da proteção da Floresta do Jamanxim! Diga NÃO à exploração de minério no coração da floresta! #TodosPelaAmazônia #342Amazonia #TodosPelaAmazonia Assine a petição: link na bio. ������✨���� The Amazon Rainforest plays a key role in balancing the climate on the Earth and therefore in each of our lives. In recent years, protection has decreased and deforestation has increased sharply. And what was already bad can get even worse. If the measures that the government has been taking are not vetoed, our future will be threatened. Say NO to the reduction of the Jamanxim Forest´s protection! Say NO to ore mining in the heart of the Forest! #togetherfortheAmazon
