Our Congresswoman Has More Balls Than Your Congressman County
She pulls no punches. She attacks with a smile. She once pissed off Allen West so bad he called her a vile person. President Obama loves her. She's Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman-Shultz. And her balls are bigger than your congressman's, punk!

Remember when Miami-Dade briefly changed to Miami-Wade during the summer of free agency? I suggest a permanent change to Broward-Bosh County.


This change could benefit local tourism. However, the cost of changing building signs, park signs, stationery etc would be borne by the public. It's much easier to quantify the estimated cost than the number of additional tourists. Same old story: socialized costs for privatized profits. If the beneficiaries of this expense had to pay for it by some kind of surtax, my guess is that it would be soundly rejected. Now, if somebody could make an argument that changing our brand name would raise all of our property values, the cost could be negligible compared to the overall benefit to the County in higher tax revenues.. The problem is that its pure speculation this change would have that kind of benefit. Did Miami-Dade benefit from the change? If so how much and who were the beneficiaries? How was it calculated and is the figure reliable?That same money could be spent on homeless shelters, school busses, park improvements etc.
