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. Pictured in upper-left is Hallandale Beach's iconic beachball-colored Water Tower on State Road A1A; September 2008 photo by me, South Beach Hoosier. © 2013 Hallandale Beach Blog, All Rights Reserved.

Try to Remember - The Obama-Orbach Corollary: President Obama's self-evident flip-flopping on sequestration makes me want to sing, "Try to remember the kind of November when..." the Beltway media was praising Obama...; Jerry Orbach singing 'Try to Remember' as the original El Gallo in The Fantasticks

Try to Remember- The Obama-Orbach Corollary: President Obama's self-evident flip-flopping on sequestration makes me want to sing, "Try to remember the kind of November when..." the Beltway media was praising Obama...; Jerry Orbach singing 'Try to Remember' as the original El Gallo in The Fantasticks
Try to remember... yes, I was alive when President Obama said what he really thought the first time around about sequestration.
He thought it was great and even threatened to veto, which really meant threatening to let loose his zealous followers on anyone who got in its way.

The vast majority of American families have been forced to do their own version of sequestration for many years and the country won't fall apart now.
I support it.

Besides, Obama was the author of this one, and Leon Panetta wrote the Pentagon's chapter, so let them take a bow.
They aren't cuts, they're cuts to rates of growth. 
What we need locally is a sequester in Hallandale Beach to stop the tax dollars flowing out in a torrent with little tangible to show for it.
Well, that is, except for highly-paid city employees who aren't very concerned with the best interests of the taxpayers, residents and small business owners of this city.

Speaking of trying to remember... here's the versatile super-talent who starred as the first El Gallo in The Fantasticks, Jerry Orbach, with this clip of him singing the first song of the show, which premiered in May of 1960.

Me in the Summer of 2016
Above, me in June, pre-recent haircut, near acres and acres of orange groves off Scenic U.S. #17 in Frostproof, FL, while visiting hot/humid Central Florida, which I'm convinced is where heat/humidity goes in the Summer to get away from it all... The oppressive heat & humidity there is literally everywhere you go. :-(
