Another case of “Affluenza?”

affluenza-the-newHo hum.  Nothing to see here, folks.  Move along.

The really shocking thing about the “trespassing incident” at former Miami Heat player Ray Allen’s home is not that seven college-bound adults felt entitled to walk into a stranger’s home, uninvited, for a look-see.

It’s not even surprising that no one has been charged in a case where the law has clearly been violated.

What IS surprising is that I agree with Miami Herald columnist Fabiola Santiago (more…)

Oh, darn! Too bad I have a day job.

Fist-pumping Pizzi

‘Cuz if I didn’t, I’d be camped outside Miami Lakes Town Hall at 9:00 AM waiting for the fireworks.

Y’all know by now that former-slash-suspended Miami Lakes Mayor Michael Pizzi was acquitted of corruption charges on Thursday, thanks to the cracker jack legal team of Ben Kuehne and Ed Shohat.

Governor Rick Scott, who suspended Pizzi after he was arrested, has refused to “reinstate Pizzi because the town already had a new mayor,” according to a Miami Herald (more…)

North Miami CTR Update Version 2.0

two-dot-ohHappy Saturday!

I know you’ve been hanging on the edges of your seats for the latest North Miami Campaign Treasurer’s Reports, so I’ll just get right to it.

I’ll start off with an amendment to my earlier CTR Update on August 13, 2014.  When I noted that candidate Kevin Burns was missing a report, it turns out that he did file both.  (more…)

Breaking: U.S. Attorney Wilfredo Ferrer (GASP!) lost a case!

Not guiltyAt the news that suspended Miami Lakes Mayor Michael Pizzi was acquitted today, I imagine Ben Kuehne thinking, “Aha!  It can be done!”

The Miami Herald reported in, Miami Lakes mayor acquitted of corruption charges:

“From day one, I always said I was innocent,” a jubilant, fist-pumping Pizzi told reporters outside the downtown courthouse. “Today, I have been vindicated and I have been exonerated.”

Fist-pumping?

Alrighty then. (more…)

BEN SHAPIRO IS MY IDOL!

I stand with IsraelVideo and commentary posted today by the Israel Video Network:

Surrounded by Anti-Israel Haters, Ben Shapiro did what we all Wish we Could do.

“Ben Shapiro, reporter and talk show host, makes the trip to his Alma Mater, UCLA, to make a statement against the BDS, a pro-Palestinian movement who supports boycotting Israeli products made in Judea and Samaria. “I have never been more ashamed to be an alumnus of this university,” (more…)

Ballot Broker Warning: Too little, too late.

It's behind meWhile Miami Herald editorials usually cause me to roll my eyes and shake my head in disbelief, I found yesterday’s op-ed, Voters beware of boleteras, to be absolutely side-splitting.

The line, “Ms. Fernandez-Rundle is taking measures to prevent electoral fraud,” had me in stitches.

I almost bust a gut when I read, “This year, Ms. Fernandez Rundle is taking measures to prevent electoral fraud, including the launching of a hot line (305-547-3300) to report (more…)
