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.

Intimidation tactics of union-backed anti-Walmart goon squads in D.C. are ticking time bombs. "Boom goes the dynamite!"
Fox News Channel January 20, 2011
Megyn Kelly interviews Fortune magazine's Nina Easton about orchestrated union efforts to intimidate people in their own homes because of labor's opposition to a Walmart in to D.C. I actually saw this broadcast LIVE today, and knew I had to post it.
Speaking of liberal hypocrisy in-action - 'Hoisted on their own petard Dept.'- in conclusion, Chicago...
Before the first Wal-Mart store in Chicago was finally approved, some of the most vehemently anti-Walmart voices on the Chicago City Council used their city-issued office debit/credit cards to make purchases at suburban Big Box stores, even while they decried... oh, you know... the pernicious effect that having them located within the oh-so august Chicago city limits, blah, blah.
But when these same Chicago council members could save some money -and on city taxes- especially for office supplies and party favors, get out of their way!
Here they come with their taxpayer-funded cards!
If you never heard about that issue, much of that information emerged in Chicagoland news outlets from clever public records requests.
Well-timed, surgically-applied public records requests do a lot of amazing things when you know what to ask for and know what your rights are -and are keen to let others know that you're asking for, since it aligns with what others have done.
In the next few weeks and months, more than ever, I'll be doing a lot of PRR at Hallandale Beach City Hall, the Broward County School Board HQ, and the Broward County Commission, where in the case of the latter, I'll be zeroing-in on certain matters involving Stacy Ritter, Kristin Jacobs and the invisible presence that is-or-was Ilene Lieberman.
Three uninspiring, unappealing female elected officials in Broward County whom it's fair to say I loathe, and not just a little bit, for their actions, attitude, words and behavior.
Yes, more fun times are definitely ahead!
