Broward Democrats Keep On Smiling

20120507-191511.jpg

Broward Democrats don’t care. They’re running all over town with smiles on their faces. They’re holding fancy fundraisers at powerful law firms. They’re still collecting $500 checks from well-connected benefactors. They’re planning on filling more positions with family members of important lobbyist firms. They’re planning and plotting to manipulate their unmotivated base no matter the cost to society. They’re baking cakes and cookies for each others big parties.

They don’t care.

They’re shielded from reality by the big walls surrounding their governments offices. They’re insulated from the unwashed masses by their gated communities and security patrols. They erect video cameras to catch working class people picking up fallen fruit from the roadside.

They don’t care.

They gather in small numbers on street corners to rail against “evil republicans”; Then they proudly post pictures on Facebook to comment on their huge success. They limit their knowledge of the outside world to certain political blogs that pat the usual suspects on the back for a job well done. They say Republicans carry a genetic defect.

They don’t care.

They meet the union rank and file to fill their heads with stories of big bad Republicans, while ignoring questions from union stewards about criminal investigations of the union bosses. Then, when three more high level union officials get arrested they ignore it. They don’t resign in disgrace. They’re still in their union offices collecting their $120,000 paychecks.

They don’t care.

But, our kids care. Our neighbors care. Our co-workers care. We care.

And now, more of the folks with badges care.

They’re tired of criminal investigations dying at certain offices. And they’re tired of the same old suspects playing political musical chairs.

Brace yourself, Winter is coming.

Broward County Commissioners Mock US Policy Towards Cuba

At Tuesday’s Broward County Commission meeting, Democrats John Rodstrom and Stacy Ritter openly mocked U.S. policy towards Cuba. Bonnie Prince Commissioner Rodstrom called the Cuban embargo a “failure” and suggested a better option would be to “infiltrate” the island nation. Rodstrom admitted his knowledge of the issue comes from watching CNBC.

Stacy Ritter, a fan favorite of freebie-seeking seniors over the age of 90, wondered why the USA can trade with Vietnam and not Cuba. Ms. Ritter obviously spends more time driving around in golf carts than studying local history.

Commissioner Chip LaMarca slapped down her silly comments but recounting the plight of his wife’s family and their escape from Cuba. LaMarca stated his wife’s family left Cuba with nothing but the clothes on their backs. They left thriving businesses and family heirlooms in Cuba; They were forced to start all over again and their success helped build south Florida’s economy. LaMarca said one should appreciate this great sacrifice of local constituents before they talk about Vietnam.

Ms. Ritter, while not cutting a rug in local dance competitions, is running for re-election in November. She will square off against Robert Sutton, a teacher and local businessman. (No information on whether he’s a good dancer).
