Welcome to my World. By Geniusofdespair
Without my glasses, this is what I see. When I meet you, if I take off my glasses, I am trying to amuse myself, looking at your face with my double vision. The only thing that bothers me is seeing two horizons. Would I text while driving? NEVER EVER, I have enough to contend with...and so do you.
Speaking of nothing important, I am going to switch to something I think that is VERY important to Miami Dade County residents: The County Mayoral Election. I want to emphasize voting in the Mayoral race.
I am not a fan of the current mayor Carlos Gimenez as I think Privatization is really bad (imagine trying to give Donald Trump our Key Biscayne Public Golf course to manage -- yes Mayor Gimenez tried to do that). He said in a debate that privatization can be done "better, faster, cheaper". But, can you imagine Trump managing our golf course? The golf course would become more private, our costs to use it would sky-rocket, or why else would Trump be interested? The County Commission stopped this boondoggle. Privatization is"Better, faster, cheaper" my ass. And if privately things can be done better, faster, cheaper what does that say about your Management skills of the County Mayor Gimenez?
Mayor Gimenez has Pepe Diaz, the dumbest and most clueless County Commissioner, doing a robocall for him. Really, Pepe? I had high hopes for Gimenez in 2011 but he immediately came into office and gave obscene salaries to his hires and little by little, he has become the lobbyist's dream machine. Gimenez has made his friends rich and given them special favors. He doesn't do competitive hiring, he picks insiders and shuffles them around. Gimenez is arrogant to people at public meetings (like the meeting that were held when he tried to cut funding to libraries). It is unbecoming. He acts as if he knows it all. He doesn't.
I have voted for Raquel Regalado. And I stand by my vote. I saw her in person without my glasses and she still looked pretty good!
Not convinced? Try this one.
