The Way I See It

Cabana Club Wins Decision – In a recent legal ruling, Belleview Biltmore owners won a decision to develop the Cabana Club on Clearwater Sand Key. This ruling will help support development plans for a new multi-purpose building with condominiums and a restaurant. The current Cabana Club is expected to close by June 1, 2009.
LA Times Columnist Rosa Brooks - Most Americans would be shocked to learn that the Obama administration is planning to appoint a radical leftist columnist from the LA Times to a top advisor position in the Department Of Defense. Columnist Rosa Brooks was special counsel to George Soros Open Society Institute (also of liberal group MoveOn.Org.) and wrote in support of the Iraqi who threw a shoe at the former President George W. Bush.
How have career staff members in the Department Of Defense responded to this news?
They are shocked.
Imagine, close friends of George Soros and the LA Times sitting in "high level" Department Of Defense meetings!
Is this the change Barack Obama promised in Washington?
What the H _ _ _ is going on with the Obama administration? We will now nave a leftist radical operating within the Pentagon.
LA Times Reported – “Fox News dominated the rankings of the top 10 cable news shows, locking-up every slot except seventh place.” The LA Times report went on to add that Fox News drew an average of 2.4 million viewers on prime time shows.
Why do so many Americans view Fox News?
Fair reporting of the news.
Where can you find Fox News? Cable Channel 37.
The Masters - If you were like many golf fans last Sunday afternoon, you were watching The Masters Golf Tournament won by Angel Cobera of Argentina.
However, and for much of the broadcast, the "star" pairing of Tiger Woods and Phil Michelson resulted in an incredible comeback ... until the seventeenth and eighteenth holes. Tiger surprisingly fell apart and Phil expectedly pulled another Phil. The real shocker was Kenny Perry losing the match after hitting an amazing shot on the difficult sixteenth hole (almost made a hole in one.)
The Masters Tournament was clearly a winner as several golfers made a run for this prestigious championship, including a wonderful come-back by Tiger and Phil (and Shinto.)
Credit A Strong Military - Pirates off Somalia have learned a tough lesson: Don't mess with US citizens. As everyone knows, the kidnapped American Captain of a large cargo ship passing Somalia in International Waters was recently freed due to aggressive military action taken by the US Navy and its expert Navy Seal snipers who shot and killed the pirates. Three shots -- three pirates killed -- one kidnapped Captain freed.
Even though the well-equipped modern-day pirates have threatened retaliation, the recent action taken by the US Navy sent a tough message to these hoodlums from a lawless Somalia.
The Peter Principle - Do you remember when a certain academic named Dr. Peter wrote a humorous book about workplace incompetence? The book's premise was commonly referred to as "The Peter Principle" and many American workers nodded in agreement with the author.
Dr. Peter explained in his treatise "that every employee would ultimately rise to his/her level of incompetency in the workplace." The book became a best seller 40 years ago.
The good news?
There will be a 40th Anniversary Edition.
The bad news?
Dr. Peter explained 40 years ago what has happened at AIG, GM, Chrysler, Bears Sterns, Merrill Lynch, and a host of other large corporations. In fact, when recently talking with one retired top AIG officer, she explained that, in her opinion, there indeed was "a layer" of top managerial incompetence at AIG.
Nationwide Tax Day Tea Party - There is a growing group of disgruntled Americans who have become involved with supporting an organization called "The Tea Party." This group of citizens believe it is time to protest the manner in which both Republicans and Democrats have wasted taxpayer funds. In fact, on April 15th this "Tea Party" group is planning protests in front of government buildings across America. In Clearwater, a protest on April 15th was held in front of the Courthouse. A "Tea Party" protest in Orlando recently reflected over 4,000 citizens in attendance.
On April 15th Fox News host Neil Cavuto broadcast his show live from Sacramento's Tea Party.
Tax revolt in America?
Yes, and the list of sponsors are groups such as Citizens Against Government Waste, Institute For Liberty, etc., etc.
Florida's Tea Parties?
You could check the Tea Party nearest you by going online to: FLTeaParties@gmail.com (Jason Hoyt.)
Everyone Has Heard About The Bird - "Bird, Bird, Bird, Bird is the word, everyone has heard about the Bird." Yes, that was the music tune of a young Detroit Tiger's pitcher named Mark Fidrych, who was often referred to in baseball circles as "The Bird."
Mark Fidrych died last Monday while working under his 10-wheel dump truck.
Even though he only played in the big leagues for a few years, he attracted national attention because of his pitching antics and free-spirited emotions. Mark Fidrych enjoyed his brief time in baseball, in fact, those who knew him said he was a great person on and off the playing field, always friendly.
Obama Drops Conditions To Talk With Iran - When President Obama said he would not impose conditions on Iran to begin talks regarding nuclear weapon development, many Americans thought it was mere campaign rhetoric that would pass much like other unfulfilled campaign promises. Not true.
The Obama administration has recently stated they would not impose nuclear program conditions on Iran, much like European nations, before agreeing to talk with Iran. Iran, on the other hand, has remained steadfastly against any nuclear program bans.
Thus, President Obama is leaving Israel, America's loyal ally in the Middle East, to possibly deal with Iran's nuclear weapon development. And, Israel will most assuredly not allow Iran to develop nuclear weapon capabilities.
In a recent reversal, Obama and Rahm Emanuel have opted not to confront gun control laws and the NRA (at this time). There had been plans by Obama and Emanuel to push tougher gun control laws in America. However, current issues with America's falling economy has replaced their interest in controlling gun sales and ownership. Call it a brief reprieve for those citizens who support gun ownership rights.
