BLACKS NEED NOT APPLY

The following six names have been sent to Governor Scott for consideration to replace both Ed Merrigan and Joe Murphy:

Keathan Frink, Thomas Oates, Abbe Rifkin, Richard Sachs, Maxine Streeter, Steve Zaccor.

A surprising and disappointing list.  Dan Kanner, a rumored favorite, was not sent up.  And despite the woeful lack of diversity in the 17th Circuit and the large number of qualified minority applicants this time around, Keathan Frink appears to be the only minority chosen.  Qualified applicants Doug Harrison  and Donald Gelin were outright blanked, despite Harrison having been previously vetted and appointed by the Governor’s office to his current position on the South Broward Hospital District, and Gelin’s years of service with BSO’s legal division.

    It is obvious that diversity is a joke in Broward County. Imagine the message that would have been sent if all nominees were black. Once again a missed opportunity to have our judiciary reflect our community.

    So typical. They set up the people that they want so surround them with red herrings. Frink and Streeter. Frink is black and Streeter is affiliated, like Liz, with the god of gods on wall street. Right firm, will be a judge. Those two are my guess. They couldn’t put in other strong people because it would mess up the plan they had all along. We all could figure that one out when we saw the names. Maybe I will be surprised, but very disappointed. There were some real winners for this community that didn’t make it up there for the wrong reasons.

    There are plenty of minorities on that list. It sounds like three Jewish people. Exactly what is needed to form an ultra super duper majority voting block of 95% to ensure another term for the imaginary current Chief Judge.

    It’s their own fault. If they weren’t so busy being athletes and rappers more of them would have become Judges in the past so there would now be more relatives and children of black judges who would meet the rigorous criteria of being appointed to the 17th.

    I fell sorry for those who sat through the white wash meeting recently with Antonucci and co. The looks on those faces the glint in the eyes of the attendees, you could almost hear the words “free at last, free at last”. NOPE!

    FYI the Governor of the State of Florida thinks Broward County is shit on the bottom of his very expensive shoe. We are a County full of liberals, minorities, children with special needs, elderly people and the mentally ill. Those who in his book are nothing more than a drain on society.

    What does this mean, Gov. Scott knows he could appoint Dan Marino or even Jesus himself (not contini mind you)and he is going to lose Broward by 65% or more to Crist.

    So in the end why would he appoint a minority or a democrat to the Bench in Broward? He won’t, but keep asking heck for a laugh he will imply he may…not!

    I feel bad for those sitting through interviews of the belief it wasn’t the usual pig fuckers convention.

    What is with all the racist pigs on here bemoaning “hey, the selection proceas should be based on the color of the applicant’s skin” ??!

    I applaud the committee for not adopting Gelin’s skin color approach to selection. That rich, Northeastern guilt approach of “hey they need special help” is blatant.

    Remember the words of MLK, Bill: “ask not what your country …” (oops, wrong speech)

    Here it is: “I dream of a day when men are judged not by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character”

    “It’s their own fault. If they weren’t so busy being athletes and rappers more of them would have become Judges in the past so there would now be more relatives and children of black judges who would meet the rigorous criteria of being appointed to the 17th.”

    This comment is just way out of line. More than thirty-eight million (38,537,000) blacks are working and employed in the U.S. There are about 343 black players in the NBA. There are about 1,187 black players in the NFL. There are about 1,159 known successful rappers in the U.S. Add the NBA, NFL and rappers together and you get 2,689 (about .007% of blacks working in the US).

    What does this have to do with the price of oranges? Since the other 99.993% of the working black world are doing other things, I think it has more to do with racist attitudes like yours.

    Paulie and Whiney are the to biggiest meatballs sitting. They’ll suck it till there’s nothing left and then want to come back and suck it some more. Haven’t figured out what they are all about yet? Go ask Laz the Spaz. HE’s the expert.

As it stands now, the Governor has three highly qualified minority lawyers to choose from, so at least things have …
