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.

When you're already fighting tradition in your Congressional re-election race, OH-16, there's never enough time. Boccieri vs. Renacci


Politics: Bowled Over by a Wave Election by Ben Werschkul of the New York Times

First-term U.S. Rep. John Boccieri (OH-16), representing rural and small-town Ohio across the Ohio River from Pennsylvania, loses his seat in Tuesday's GOP tsunami to businessman and former Wadsworth mayor Jim Renacci, despite enthusiastic visits by Bill Clinton.

An example of the humorous comparative ads run against him.

So was it his record of voting for nearly every aspect of the
Obama economic agenda, or was he always more liberal than his district was, and simply an anomaly swept-in because due to Obama's popularity in 2008, and now, two years later, sent packing because he was always a bad fit?


Well, two years ago,
Boccieri became the first Democrat to represent that House seat in almost 60 years, so he was always fighting tradition. On Tuesday, tradition came roaring back in the Buckeye State.

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

Thumbs up! What a night we had! #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 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 way out in the horizon on the top of another mountain, to the left of her head. �� In case you forgot what the Christ the Redeemer statue looks like, up close, here's another Brazilian beauty to connect-the-dots for you: Gisele Bündchen, aka @Gisele.

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