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. Photo in upper-left is Hallandale Beach's iconic beachball-colored Water Tower on State Road A1A, September 2008; March 2018 photo below of North Beach, looking left-to-right, looking north, HYDE Condominium, Etaru Japanese Robatayaki restaurant, and Hollywood Beach in the distance, with umbrellas.

Coming Sunday: Scott Galvin's FL-17 congressional campaign is using MY blog photos on his direct mail campaign ads without my permission

Coming Sunday: Scott Galvin's FL-17 congressional campaign is using MY blog photos on his direct mail campaign ads without my permission.

Pure and simple, on Thursday I caught Galvin engaging in unethical behavior even
BEFORE he ever got anywhere near Washington, which is certainly an Early Bird approach, I'll grant you, but frankly, I don't think even using MY photos will help him emerge on top on Tuesday, despite his appropriating something that's NOT his to use.

Just because a photo is on the Internet doesn't mean that you and your campaign staff get to use it for whatever purpose you want.

It doesn't belong to YOU!

Do I really need to explain this concept to someone who is running for U.S. Congress?

Apparently, in the South Florida of the year 2010, I do.

I'll connect-the-dots on this subject and show you the campaign piece he's so
clumsily using and show you the photos as I originally used them here on my blog.

And if you happen to have any Scott Galvin campaign mail anywhere in your house, don't throw it out -yet.
It'll come in handy on Sunday when you play a game of compare-and-contrast at home, though you won't have to put on your detective hat.

If this had been a tougher call and not such a slam dunk for my own brand of sleuthing, I might have needed to enlist the help of a top-shelf detective to handle the investigation.

There's a detective I've been hearing really great things about from friends out in Cali who might be of some help to us
in the future here in Hallandale Beach and Broward County, what with all the political miscreants and their lawyer/lobbyist acolytes hereabouts, though I should mention that he isn't cheap.

This cat goes by the name of
Joe Mannix.
Perhaps you've heard of him?


Now HE will get us the answers we want!

Plus, I'll also be analyzing campaign direct mail in Broward County for some salient signs the MSM has completely missed, and since South Florida's MSM has been particularly lazy and fact-challenged this particular summer of swelter, there's an awful lot to mull over.
All of that to come on Sunday.



I loved this TV show as a kid growing-up down here, as did all my friends!

#HOLLYWOODFL based photographer and entrepreneur Esther Chuang with Hollywood Mayor-elect Josh Levy
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
