Refugees hurl insults

Please mute this video if you don't want to listen to the Arabic...English is printed across the screen.

This is what's happening across Europe as these refugees invade countries. Obama will soon allow more of them into our country. We just don't hear all the truth from the liberal media.

A European woman’s horrifying tale of what she saw and heard while traveling with the Muslim migrant wave pushing north through Europe. Suffering a host of insults hurled her direction, she waited for the train among the mass of people, of which she estimates 90 percent were healthy fighting-age men, while witnessing people defecate in public, fight among each other and beat their women and children.

And on another note--
The conservative Tribune reports that the 16 states below have bills or are initiating bills to outlaw Sharia law: Alabama (two bills) Arkansas Florida (two bills) Indiana (two bills) Iowa Kentucky Mississippi (four bills) Missouri (two bills) North Carolina Oklahoma (seven bills) South Carolina (two bills) Texas (six bills) Virginia Washington West Virginia Wyoming (two bills) Some organizations, like CAIR, have opposed these laws, calling them “racist” and “Islamophobic” — in fact, this list was compiled by CAIR in the first place so as to label those who oppose the implementation of Shariah law in the United States Islamophobic.

Obama's on a Mission to get more Democrats

By law, a legal immigrant can apply for citizenship and begin the Naturalization process after five years.
  • There are over 8.8 million immigrants now eligible.
  • Another 5 million will become eligible in the next four years.
  • Approximately 1.5 million each year will become eligible over the next decade.
  • Between now and 2024, almost 20 million immigrants could become citizens and join the voter rolls.
Historically, only about 60 percent of legal immigrants eventually became citizens, and different nationalities have sought citizenship at different rates. Millions of legal immigrants have been content to work and live in the United States without seeking citizenship. Now, there will be a bilingual multimedia campaign to remind them it is their duty to become voters, and jumping through the hoops will be made incredibly easy.

Friday Night Football Sky

Unfortunately Lake Worth lost 3/7 to Santaluces but the sky was amazing. Read about it... and losing our chances for Play-offs. We had so many penalties. This was about the most boring game all season and it was Alumni night--no one knew it..


Great movie, exciting from start to finish, starring Emily Blunt (the one who said she didn't like America and then took it back), Benicio del Toro and Josh Brolin.

Quote of the Day - Glenn Beck on Obama and Guns

Comment Up
I just have to tell you this, and I believe I speak by commandment, stop listening to the liars.

This is the history of this man. It's obscene! And it's time we start saying those words. 'Mr. President, that is obscene. We deserve better than this. We demand better than this' ... This man just came out and said this needs to be politicized! I refuse to be divided by him anymore. He is a very small, sad man.

He is not worth your time. It is really, truly sad to see how little our president had made himself and how little he has made the presidency of the United States. It is truly sad and pathetic."

What's going on at the Lake Worth Shuffleboard Courts?

Comment Up

Well, this was leased out to the CRA on a 10 year lease with one 5 year renewal option that in turn sub-leased it to the Armory (we can't get enough ART in this city). It's still our property, as far as I know. In the back-up at the time, it showed all of the courts being removed. And just think, this excavation started exactly on the first day of the new budget cycle. The city has wanted these courts out for a long time because 1) they can't maintain ANYTHING and 2) a few years ago they wanted some sort of a park for those who live in and around the neighborhood. My guess is it will be a park where people can sit and watch the Crematorium?

This used to be a great place for Seniors and those who liked to shuffleboard. The city likes to tell us that no one shuffleboards anymore.  The truth of the matter is, they just can NOT or will not take care of our assets--none of them. The other thing that they do not care a fig about is listening to the residents and what they may want. We had several charettes about the courts and most everyone who attended wanted to either keep all of them or half of them.

The CRA is all about grants--spending state, federal money. They don't even have to pay the city for this building and the city picks up the tab for just about everything. Renovating shuffleboard courts for seniors and others to play must not be in any grant description even if we have had courts near city hall for 100 years.

We are assuming that they are removing the courts but it hasn't come before the commission. In order to remove these courts, the CRA must have had city approval.

“We’re not a traditional church and don’t want to be one. We want to be where the people are and that’s why we’re in downtown Lake Worth. There’s some brokenness here and we want to help people who need it.”

~ Pastor Mike Olive, Common Ground Church

Read the PB Post article....

Lake Worth City Manager, Mike Bornstein said, “It was a misunderstanding that got politicized and generated some confusion,” when talking about churches needing a special permit. Now the bully blogger and his sidekick can calm down, apologize and maybe even come on down for a little love and of course that invitation for a cup of coffee at Common Ground Coffee Bar.

Flags at Half-Staff

President Obama Has Issued Two Proclamations Ordering Flags to Half-Staff

*** Flags Should be at Half-Staff Until Sunset on Tuesday, October 6, 2015 ***

Presidential Proclamation: Honoring the Victims of the Tragedy in Roseburg, Oregon



As a mark of respect for the victims of gun violence perpetrated on October 1, 2015, in Roseburg, Oregon, by the authority vested in me as President of the United States by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, I hereby order that the flag of the United States shall be flown at half-staff at the White House and upon all public buildings and grounds, at all military posts and naval stations, and on all naval vessels of the Federal Government in the District of Columbia and throughout the United States and its Territories and possessions until sunset, October 6, 2015. I also direct that the flag shall be flown at half-staff for the same length of time at all United States embassies, legations, consular offices, and other facilities abroad, including all military facilities and naval vessels and stations.

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this second day of October, in the year of our Lord two thousand fifteen, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and fortieth.


Refugees - We don't know who the Terrorists are

Democrats say we're not doing enough.  Obama is allowing more refugees even well after he is out of the Whitehouse.

Yesterday, Sen Jeff Sessions during a meeting of the Refugee Resettlement Program pointed out from various press reports that Syrian passports can be purchased on the black market for as little as $200, and that nearly half of the refugees pouring into Europe are actually from Pakistan, Afghanistan, north Africa and other hotbeds of Islamic terrorism.

Read about it...

And on top of inviting terrorists into our country, we are feeding them and housing them.  Thanks, Obama. Thanks for screwing up the Middle East and diminishing our safety here at home. We have never had such a mess in 239 years.

Friday Night Lights - Lake Worth

Tonight Lake Worth (4/1) plays Santaluces (2/3)...home game is at 7pm.

Hudson Holdings Budget - "We want your casino complex"

Comment Up

For $3.7 million there are some who want to sell the soul of Lake Worth to the devil. 

We keep going round and round with the same people who have the same arguments that are an affront to our sensibilities. The bottom line is, we don't want Hudson Holdings anywhere near our beach or managing our casino complex for God knows how long. This is the amount of money they say that they will invest to destroy our pool and build out the 2nd floor space. So, their offer went from a 66,000 sq. ft. building and 3 story parking garage down to managing what we already have and building out the vacant space, taking over our lucrative ballroom business as well as bulldozing our pool that we just spent one-half million on just a few years ago. They just don't get it...we don't want them touching our property, especially our pool.

They have been around our town for some time buying up properties as well as the Gulfstream Hotel that sits there decaying. They gave the Lake Worth YES PAC a $1,500 contribution in August 2014. They knew who their friends should be in Lake Worth in order to get favorable treatment. The same people are behind them in their pursuit to "grab our beach"-- they want to gain control of our casino/pool complex.
Once they get what they want from the city of Lake Worth, everything could change as some people are never satisfied and always want more. Give them an inch and they always want that mile--once their foot is in the door, anything could happen depending on who is sitting on that dais... if they ever perform.  Could this be Déjà vu?

Tell them to hit the road and HANDS OFF OUR BEACH.

Hudson Holdings keeps pushing on

Comment Up

At the September 15, 2015 meeting, Commissioner Amoroso asked about putting the "ITN to bed" with the possibility of hiring a Realtor to address the 5,000 sq. ft. upstairs space. He wanted it as either an agenda item or for discussion.

Our City Attorney, Glen Torcivia, said that it could be added to the agenda.

Mayor Pam Triolo said that someone in the previous week wanted to add something to the agenda and they were turned down. She is into consistency and said that you need X amount of days to put something on the Agenda. Pam Lopez, City Clerk, agreed. It didn't matter what the city attorney said. Triolo did not want the subject brought up in any way shape or form that night.

It was agreed to bring back commissioner Amoroso's request at the next general meeting.

Now we have Hudson Holdings sending out an e-mail that indicates this is their third proposal in the ITN process even though they dropped out of the process on 9-15-15. Every newspaper around reported this as well as this blog and Hudson sent a letter stating it--they dropped out.  The ITN ended months ago.

But the above e-mail on the reference line says: RE:  ITN-LW-PT3-final. The city supposedly has 30 days to answer this latest proposal.
