It has hit home

City counsel of Hollywood, Florida decided to change the name of three streets. Lee, Hood and Forrest Streets. I wonder what they will be renamed to? Who will pay for the signage, loss of business because when a customer looks up their address and can not find it, new drivers license, checks, return address labels for residence? And on and on. Whats next?

    One of them will be Obama Ave. You heard it here first.

    I HATE when they re-name streets. No matter the reason. The cost and pain in the ass to everyone involved is huge. They talked about renaming a street here Martin Luther King boulevard. Thankfully they just ended up naming a bridge after him. That was some years back, but if it happened today I bet they'd change the street.

    LOL, I was going to say Obama Street, Obama Avenue and Obama Lane. South Florida has to be the biggest region of transplanted liberals from up north in the country.
    Political correctness is a liberal degrading of the freedom of speech. George Orwell's 1984 famously incorporated the notion of limiting thought through language (see Newspeak)." Meanwhile, the beatings will continue until morale improves around here.

    Every town in America has a Martin Luther King boulevard. It's more popular than "Main Street".

    Some towns cheated, they have duel street signs. "9th street" and "MLK Blvd".

    And not a single MLK Street is safe to walk at night. Ironic.

    Regarding who should pay for those street name changes, I have a proposal for you to forward if you live in Hollywood, FL. At the next city counsel meeting get up and propose that the cost to businesses, private citizens, and all signage change costs be paid out of the pockets of the members of the city counsel. Get up a petition beforehand to back it up. Then watch as the city council tries to pick up that turd by the clean end!

    When are they going to start giving MLK's harem of nubile young groupies who traveled with him the recognition they deserve? He was a randy old philanderer!
