The Hidden Hand

Certainly you've heard by now about the posters placed downtown in Lake Worth with the message, "Black Lives Matter" and other related messages. Let's be clear - All lives matter.

To my knowledge those responsible haven't been contacted by the Sheriff as yet but the pair is clearly shown on video. These posters will have to removed by the city and FPL at some considerable expense. Of course, many say that these posters are part of free speech and even going so far as to compare these posters to taped notices of lost dogs and neighborhood yard sales. There is a big difference here: these posters were affixed with glue and very hard to remove. So, was this pair engaged in free speech or vandalism at 2:00 a.m. in the morning? Some people like pushing the envelope as far as they can.

As I perused the local blogs and websites came across this from the Anarchist element in Lake Worth in the Everglades Earth First! site:
Read here how the Anarchists caused the violence in Durham, North Carolina.

As one famous political tactician and current Chicago mayor, Rahm Imanuel once said, "You never let a serious crisis go to waste. And what I mean by that it's an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before."

There are some in our city, we need to honest here, who will take advantage of the current national unrest to their own political advantage and attempt to play it out here, in our city. Those of us aware of their antics expect nothing less. Opportunists all.
