EZ4144 your statement was funny but it would have been better with a...little chicken :) Capitalism allowed us to become a superpower in a short time so I hope it is not too late to fix it. I do believe the gravy train has left the station and the middle class practically handed their ticket to the upper class. We never knew what hit us as the politics kept us all occupied with anger and fear. Whether you are Bill Gates or Jeff Bezos or Vladimir Putin it does not matter because wealth controls the economic system and breaks all rules of a free market system. Before getting upset with grouping these people together go take a look at the richest people on this planet. You don't get that rich without breaking some rules. Even Warren Buffet will tell you that and he is also in that group. Reggie, don't get excited I just believe in fairy tales right? Listen, I believe what I believe...until proven wrong...which happens on a daily basis :)

If you hadn't noticed the wolves are in the hen house and picking their teeth. Nothing but feathers left. I'm just waiting on the revolution.

Yes, the revolution. I don't believe I will be around when that happens. I hope it never happens but when you look back in history The People usually figure it out. It is not smart to hoard wealth and then boast about it. They believe The People are stupid and emotional and vulnerable to propaganda. I want to believe that Wealth has compassion but the truth is they want to be left alone to enjoy their bounties. Life is short and immediate gratification is human. I do understand what motivates this need to exclude people from their domain. You see it all the time behind gated communities that house both liberals and conservatives. I prefer neither political party where truth is a moving target. So, this thread started with some promise of community and common sense but in the end it was nothing more than a platform of deception and misdirection. What a waste of time!

BMBV why would you use "warfare" rhetoric? Revolution means a change or reorganization of political power. Yes, history is full of war but I am of the opinion that that The People prefer to peacefully protest until changes are made in economic, social and political systems and policy. It has more to do with "change" not war. When resources become limited because of an unfair and unequal distribution The People become oppressed. When enough people become oppressed because of corruption and lack of resources then society will demand change. Maybe you have not been reading my post but it is the reason why I believe BPO's should share their bounty not exclude it from society.

Most BPO posts in this thread are trying to blame the problems on local government and bad behaving people. They are actually boasting about owning the beach because they earned it fair and square and we the people just want something we did not earn. Apparently The People are not so sure about the fair and square part. I'm certainly not. Yes, property owners have rights but (yes there is a but) this is about a resource that is disappearing behind expansive buildings and now you want to exclude people from behind those buildings. I have repeated several times that my family and I do not go to the beach behind your buildings so I do NOT want something that you have. ONLY because of the attitudes (disconnected, deceiving and misdirecting rhetoric) by BPO's posting in this forum I and maybe a few others have decided to support CU. If CU loses in court this problem will not go away. I only have an opinion and I am not stating facts. One of the BPO's in this thread stated facts but they were not facts. Bad move.

Okay that is kind of funny but I know you understand my point: don't rock the boat unless you are prepared to swim in an ocean full of jelly fish...BTW it's a nice boat!

You do realize this lawsuit that has been cleverly sold to the innocent public under the banner of "customary use" is actually a wicked, greedy attempt to ROB thousands of innocent homeowners of ALL of key essential rights that come with property ownership.

It's a scary, socialistic, slippery slope, my friends. And don't think for a minute that power-brokers won't extend this "majority-want-for-themselves" land grab concept beyond the beach.

If you think you were already unhappy with the current over-development of Walton County, just wait till you see the HYPER DEVOLPMENT that will come with free-for-all, forced occupation (deceptively rebranded "customary use") of privately owned properties.

AF, this is not about over-development. That train has already left the station so that issue is irrelevant to the lawsuit. Robbing and land grabbing can be argued on both sides based only on my opinion so I consider that argument irrelevant to the lawsuit.

No one has a right to call anyone wicked. Who did that?

Greedy? Well that is a human trait.

There are slippery slopes within our precious capitalism. I want capitalism to succeed forever but it won't unless we become more critical of the flaws. This statement plays on our emotion and/or comes from emotion. Either the fear is within you or you are promoting fear. I do not fear socialism. I do not prefer or desire socialism. Am I a socialist? If you answer yes the fear is within you.

South Walton is over developed in relation to the infrastructure. I think BCC is aware. I agree with you they need to be more than aware. But again this is irrelevant to the lawsuit unless the Judge allows it relative.

Trust me a lot of people are unhappy. I wish we could come up with a simple compromise on the exclusion part to those property rights and address all issues on the beach. I just shake my head that we are not able to do this. Good leaders and not those that throw around fear of the boogey man if you don't agree on something, need to step up to the plate. NOW
