    Florida town plans to use eminent domain...

    RIVIERA BEACH, Fla., Oct. 4 (UPI) -- Officials of a poor, predominantly black Florida town plan to relocate about 6,000 residents to make room for a billion-dollar yachting and housing complex.

    Are they going to build reservations to put these black people on?? No such thing as ownership of property anymore, not with greed staring public officials in the face. I'm sure the black populace think they really need a yacht club to house all of the large boats they own. Some of the things being allowed to happen in this country are really upsetting. More large companies are getting in line to default on their pension plans; not to worry though; the Federal Pension Default Corp, or whatever they call that thing, which is the reposnsibility of us taxpayers, will step in and save the day, and make it right for everybody. It's getting uglier all of the time in this country---seems only the wealthier are prospering; and that will become a more select group as time goes on, as more of us drop through the crack, or maybe "are forced through the crack" would be better terminology..

    Riveria Beach is in a SERIOUS state of disrepair.



    Personally I think these people will benifit by holding on to their land until there is no where else as close to the beach to build in Florida and then sell it for a mint. For the Town or County to get involved and force it for a housing developement is BS.
