    Customary Use and Our 30A Legacy

    I'm laughing at you. I'm now retired, but have always worked in the private sector as a business owner or partner. I'm happy to say my life has been satisfying. I call people socialissts who espouse socialist ideas. I'm a capitalist and I'm not ashamed of it.. And "PapaJ", why would I reject...

    Customary Use and Our 30A Legacy

    We've always had a public sector that provided services such as law enforcement, defense and many other public services. You socialists want to expand public enterprise. When railroad travel became obsolete in the US, AmTrak was created and has been a complete failure. I support national parks...

    Did construction companies that build roads and bridges "grab" the land that was required to 4 lane Highway 331?

    Customary Use and Our 30A Legacy

    Yep, I'm in favor of those things too. I also supported the purchase of Camp Helen by the state. Capitalism doesn't mean privatizing everything. Funny that you mentioned the police though. Law enforcement seems to be a target of the socialists these days.

    For one thing, I'm not in favor a a border wall. Secondly, did I say anything about boycotting a business? I still use the USPS when I send out Christmas cards. And I even rode on AmTrack once.

    Customary Use and Our 30A Legacy

    Just think, if the socialists win enough elections, eventually there won't even be private property, much less private property rights. While they're confiscating stuff that they think we shouldn't have, why not just confiscate our land, houses, businesses, and everything else. Then, in theory...

    This forum seems to be a court of public opinion with a bias toward Old English Common Law, which isn't the law of the land.

    Perhaps you didn't understand what I wrote. My wife signed the anti-Hampton Inn petition, not a CU affidavit. She's very intelligent and she knows that any sworn statement has serious implications and is not to be taken lightly.

    I'm still chuckling about the affidavits that were given away like Halloween candy that people from all over the country signed. It reminds me of the petition that people were talked into signing, demanding that a Hampton Inn not be built in Seagrove Beach. My wife even signed the petition...

    Wait a minute here. You're insulted by something Kayti said but you have no problem with someone telling her that she's stupid? I think some on this forum just have a problem with the idea that everybody doesn't agree with what you believe.

    Customary Use and Our 30A Legacy

    I'm no lawyer but my understanding is that a plaintiff must prove his case. How do the plaintiffs prove their case against several thousand people? And what are they trying to prove?

    I certainly hope the judge doesn't even read the bravo sierra on this forum. I'll also be glad when he rules on it and the issue can be put to bed.

    Customary Use and Our 30A Legacy

    Do you suppose that there are beachfront property owners who actually aren't fighting customary use or do you just assume that since they do own beachfront property that they're bad people? You seem to be rich, so all rich people can't be bad, right?

    Are BFOs also expected to pick up trash that slobs leave behind if their back yard is ruled to be a public beach?

    Customary Use and Our 30A Legacy

    Those of you who are so confident of a win in this case are aware that the burden of proof is on the plaintiffs, aren't you? Frankly I don't know what your proof is? Enlighten us. This isn't exactly a slip and fall case where some slick plaintiffs lawyer impresses a stupid jury.

    E-scooters in SoWal?

    Maybe they can ban stupidity in Atlanta. Banning things and certain kinds of behavior always solves problems doesn't it?

    E-scooters in SoWal?

    And how many bicycle fatalities in Atlanta? Maybe a better question would be how many bicycle fatalities have there been on the Emerald Coast? Any time people on small vehicles collide with large vehicles there will be injuries and fatalities.

    The "City of South Walton" that so many South Walton residents say they wanted?

    CU is a moot point for me. I don't care to vacation or spend time in South Walton anyway. Too crowded and too much traffic and it gets worse every year.

    I can't help but wonder if this all will be settled before the next big recession that's supposed to be worse than the 2008 meltdown.

    You tell me. You're the one who wants to "turn the tide" with county officials that think like you do. You implied that I was bring national politics into the discussion by my mentioning the names of two left wing extremists from other states. I was only suggesting that you and some others want...

    Tweedledave and Tweedledan

    What does local government have to do with left or right? Government is elected officials who are politicians. In the panhandle the elected officials are mostly conservatives (right). And sometimes you can't separate national politics from local and state politics. Some issues, particularly...

    I used to love spending time on the beach in South Walton but that was another time. I'm amazed that people want to come to such a hectic crowded place. I'll be glad when the matter is finally settled. While I don't have an interest in it, I tend to side with property owners.

    Tweedledave and Tweedledan

    You're probably right. But my observations are that you and others would love for local politics to take a hard turn to the left. Now you can demand that I be banned.

    Tweedledave and Tweedledan

    So, bashing the local politicians and business owners has nothing to do with politics? and the regulars here are always suggesting that local politicians be voted out. Please explain. It seems to me that some who post here want to elect county officials like the left wing loonies that I mentioned.

    Did I imply that you said that? I don't think so. I really didn't remember who made that stupid observation.

    Freeport Dec 11th RCC Mayor calls community member a B

    Name calling is not appropriate, unless you happen to be superior ot those you disagree with. Fpr example, if you didn't vote for Mayor Gillum fo governor, it's ok for someone to call you an uneducated redneck.

    Supporting Property Rights

    Does that mean that we rednecks can go back to some of the beaches that we used to enjoy? Can we now hang out on the beach at Seaside, Rosemary Beach and other places in South Walton?

    Quit claim of beach front land

    I always thought that quitclaim deeds were worthless in most jurisdictions except maybe in places like the People's Republic of Massachusetts.

    A Bit of SoWal History

    It's amusing that "SoWal" seems to be an elite entity, unrelated to the rest of Walton County. You people need to secede from Walton County.

    My view in traffic today !

    I don't think any one elected official is to blame for the growth in northwest Florida. The TDC certainly did it's job by making it a popular destination. So good that Walton County doesn't even need a TDC any longer. Frankly, South Walton was a lot more appealing in it's "Redneck Rivera" days.

    Customary Use Changes July 1?

    It's a bigger deal to me that continuous over building, development, and marketing keeps bringing in more and more tourists and traffic to Destin and South Walton. As far as I'm concerned, the area has lost it's appeal.
