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.

John Stossel -Evidence of fraud in awarding of millions by U.S.D.A. after legit lawsuit by African-American farmers: Non-farmers are also getting $$$!

John Stossel of Fox Business Network -Clip from his Fox News Channel SPECIAL Friday night, March 25, 2011, on "Freeloaders."
Here, Stossel investigates increasing evidence of rampant fraud in the awarding of millions of dollars by the U.S.D.A. after their settlement of a well-publicized lawsuit against them by African-American farmers who WERE discriminated against, by ineligible non-farmers also receiving checks. According the the most accurate information, 18,000 Black farmers were actually eligible, but 97,000 sought the $50,000 payment. Surprise, the principal lawyers involved seem to just be shrugging their shoulders about the fraud against U.S. taxpayers.

What a night we had! #HollywoodFL based photographer/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 2016
