YMCA Cleanup Day a “Great Success “

The past year and a half have presented a great deal of challenges for all of us. It is no different for non-profit and commercial businesses alike. As the world went into lock down, the needs did not stop.

Groups like the YMCA and others experienced a lack of volunteers and events. The people and the money dried up real fast. This did not mean that there were not on going needs. So as time passed and the weeds became taller and the limbs grew longer, effort was needed.

Effort is exactly what the YMCA received today. As an Editors note to this story, we would like to take the privilege of thanking Tony Z (Zweiner) for organizing this effort. Weeks of planning and discussion took place way before the cleanup to insure a job well done. Thank You.

There is also credible discussion taking place regarding the awesome swimming pool at the “Y”. TAM has learned of an effort underway to secure a benefactor for the renovation of the pool. Wait until you hear this story. The pool is just the first part. So Standby !

To all the people in the community that helped, you are the best.

LDR’s & The Experts

Why does there seem to be such a resistance from Council members when it comes to listening to people other than those on the Village dole for advise on the LDRs?

Tony Z asks – Let’s see how the Council responds



 

Know Who You are Standing With

Maybe we should rename MLK Blvd. to BLM Road.

After all it seems MLK is a thing of the past. Maybe Malcolm X Lane instead?

What your Young Elected have been taught about America is sad.

In the broadest sense, Black Lives Matter refers to a protest movement spawned by recent and repeated instances of black men and women being killed under apparently controversial to outrageous circumstances. It traces its origins to the 2012 fatal shooting of Trayvon Martin by George Zimmerman (who was acquitted of Martin’s murder) and to “three radical self-avowed Marxist Black organizers—Alicia Garza, Patrisse Cullors, and Opal Tometi.

Critics blame BLM for worsening race relations in America. Even family members of Jamar Clark, who was shot by police in 2015, have urged BLM to settle the protests because “there’s a fine line between protesting a cause and hurting the community.”

One of BLM’s originating activists, Alicia Garza, has argued that black people cannot be racist, because “Racism is a system” rather than the act of merely judging people based on race.

Then you have Groups like the YEO Networks, that support the same policy platforms of Social Justice and Progressive ideology. They are another offshoot of funding and activism that develop and assist in cultivating young elected officials in small governments to continue the same policy track as BLM is using at State and National levels.

There seems to be a mantra forming here of We no longer need permission – we are just going to do what we want.

FROM THE YEO NETWORKS WEBSITE

The cross over of policy between these two organizations is amazingly identical. It shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone though when you look for example to how BLM is funded. Very much the same way that YEO is funded and by the same groups and radical far left Marxists that are currently trying to dismantle the American way of life.

Why is that important? Well, it is no longer just in the BIG CITY. Indiantown, you have a sitting Councilmen on the Indiantown Village Council that is a member of both groups. As a matter of fact he has brought BLM to our town. While the gatherings in Indiantown have not been violent, yet. They did espouse the same language of hate and fairytail topics like systemic racism, white privilege and a muddled view of diversity.

Systemic racism is the idea that anyone of NON-COLOR is naturally racist from birth. It is just built in they say. Really? Check your privilege they will say. Uh Huh.

Your Village Council railed on this during their STRATEGIC WORKSHOP as well. Other fairytail ideas like White Privilege and “forced equality through edict or law” were thrown into the mix. As well as forced diversity through contractual and ordinal edict.

They did more than just talk about it. They said it is the STRATEGIC MISSION of your elected leaders in Indiantown to advance these Social Justice ideals. This amounts to nothing more than forced Cultural Marxism through Critical Theory. This is what happens when you do not know the people you elect and then give them the keys after dark.

Long story short. It is unAmerican, It is Socialist at best and Marxist in the light.

So, are all people in the movement bad. No, there are a whole lot of people that are useful idiots that buy into the intersectional tripe that is espoused. There are those that are taking advantage of a situation for their own gain. Then there are those, a large majority, that support the BLM mantra of “Overthrow Capitalism Destroy the Constitution”. Regardless of which type they are, they are standing with an organization that is advocating the overthrow of the United States Constitution.

The same Constitution Anthony Dowling claims to have served to defend. What happened Anthony?

Now if you do not support those things I think it is time to denounce them and show otherwise in your words and actions.


If we have a race problem in this community it will not be solved by allowing elected to mandate your morals and actions in a matter of race relations. You will not solve it by bringing in outside agitators that are burning our Nation Down.

If you really believe their is an issue. Let’s talk. If you want to have a forum to support your radical Marxist and far left leaning BS, then take a hike. We have to begin in a place we all have in common first. We need to build on what we already agree on. Then we can start to talk about the things we do not. Without contrition and reconciliation there can be no Comm-Unity. It is a two way street.


So when your elected Council people start wagging their tongues and fingers telling you that all White people are born racist and that forced equality is the only way they can win, you better know who you are standing alongside. Because you will be known as one of them.


In my circles, we judge a man on the content of his character, not the color of ones skin. There is not a one of us who got to choose our skin color. God decided for us. There is a reason. Try and find it.

it starts with you

You get what you deserve

A Perspective of observation
The Village of Indiantown Council Workshop

The outcome of the recent Village of Indiantown Day long Strategic Planning Workshop should not have surprised anyone. Especially when you understand the underlying lack of maturity and ethical practice of some of the Council members.

Don’t be surprised when you ask yourself how this thing got so out of hand in Indiantown. When you, the citizen allow others to deal with matters for you and you do not oversee those people or their actions, well. You will get what you deserve. Especially when you do not take the time to know the character and philosophy of governance of those you elected.


For example, your Mayor yesterday could not understand why pushing official Government resolutions through five hours before the June 11th General Council meeting, as well as days after the official agenda had been published was wrong. It is not only wrong it is completely antithetical to the American Spirit.

So, Miss Janet let me explain this really easy for you. Because obviously, your education department at your after-school program failed to include civics as a part of your learning. Here we go:

  • You are elected (that means as a servant & voice not for – but OF the People) and can be recalled by WE THE PEOPLE
  • Before WE THE PEOPLE can decide if we want you to vote yes or no – we need to know about whatever it is you are voting on – regardless of the content.
  • That way We The People have ample time to thumb it up or thumb it down – we may even offer ideas to make it better
  • Then you know what We The People are saying so you can weight your VOTE for us accordingly.

Does that make sense? Probably not or you would not have made so many other ethical missteps along the way.

Let’s try this scenario. It may strike closer to home:

OK, so in this scenario Guy Parker and Tony Z ended up winning. Soon after Guy Parker decides to place a proclamation on the agenda 5 hours before they vote. He is also able to have Tony Z co-sponsor it. The content of the Proclamation was that Indiantown supported Confederate Memorial Day. Would you be as quite about how you were never asked then?

You would be running up and down social media crying about how your voice was not even considered and that its blah blah blah.

See this is the problem. When you automatically assume that EVERYONE agrees with you because somehow you have grown a new brain cell that no one else has because they are not Elected, well you are wrong. The people deserve better. Not doing so is an embarrassment to the American way of governance. You refuse to see how the PEOPLES voice was muted. Here is a deeper look at ETHOS for edification sake.

Not only that, the resolutions were copied from and tailored for the Village from a Progressive Socialist organization by Councilman Dowling. Then somehow you are able to get Anthony to let you co-sponsor, or did he ask you? Either way still the same. All of this happened though in a brief five-hour window without breaking Sunshine laws?  Or was there prior pre-planning that would have accommodated more time in the Sunshine with the matter at question?

Can you see how from out here it looks like this is a last-minute co-originated maneuver?

OK, great logistics, I guess. However, if there was such a fire to do this like you were so emphatic about, then why where you not prepared way in advance? Or where you and just decided until the absolute last minute so there would be no opposition?

These topics are not new. That veil of ignorance of fact you continue to wear is getting a little thin. At least you have a veil because our next Councilman is wearing the Emperors clothes.


The Honorable I cannot remember my name without my Title Anthony Dowling who insists that the Council just needs to drag you all along until they get you where he is going. That is NOT leadership – it is tyrannical. But when you elect a self-avowed Progressive Socialists like Dowling what do you expect.

Anthony may have served in the US Army but that does not mean he sees the Constitution the same way most Veterans do. It does not make him all of the sudden patriotic. No, your Councilman is siding with thugs and anti-American political leaders and organizations whose agenda is the over throw of capitalism and the US constitution. So, when he votes and speaks it should shine a little light on where he is coming from.

While he Drags you along as he likes to say, I hope the shackles are not too tight.


Then we have the self consecrated Ms. Clarke that thinks her relationship with God is somehow superior to everyone else’s. Hiding behind a self-declared false Virtue is not Godly and it is not Holy. So, when people of this nature are in charge it is what they emote. Her activity during the election process was beneath the office she represented and was shameful. But I am sure she will attempt to glorify it by demeaning me for pointing it out. One word – contrition.


Then you have Guyton Stone. This man is in and out of court for financial issues more than a Duncan Yo Yo goes up and down. He acts like a thug and threatens people, myself as one, then smiles at you like he is Mr. Family Man and all about being a Nice Guy.

No, the behavior of Guyton Stone is anything but genuine. He uses his office for personal gain and cloaks it as Virtue. Not to mention, he sat through at least two hours of yesterday’s Public meeting without his mask not even being around his neck let alone his face. Do as I say not as I do.

Wonder why you still have an illegal and unconstitutional face mask mandate in place in Indiantown? So do we.

If it is good enough for us then why do the same self-important people that passed it not honor it. You see, they think they are better than you and I. Somehow, they have a superior Brain Cell that they developed once elected.

No More Excuses – open the Village up and get back to business.


Then there is Howard Brown who is a lifelong career bureaucrat. He is trained in and subscribes to globalist practice and standards of Sustainable governance and he is transforming this once wonderful Indiantown community into a web of Global agendas and policy.

These are the same Global people and Organizations that want to tell you how you have to live your life in AMERICA the SAME way the rest of the World does. Guess what – NO !

We will not keep the secrets of anti-American agendas in the dark. They will be exposed and explained for what they are.


So, while the other reporters and pundits pen their articles, mine has taken a different look. Because, you see, what good is pointing out policy faux pas when the people creating them are who they are.

Systemic Racism along with Diversity where loud themes of Strategic Concern being trumpeted. First of all, DIVERSITY? Really, have you even bothered to look at your Council makeup, let alone the Staff? Give me a break!

Plain and simple – Systemic Racism is not REAL – It does not exist.

You see people do not dislike you or I because of our skin color – no none of us got to choose what color we are. What the anger and criticism have to do with is your short sided immature and arrogant approach to governance. I have seen High School Student Councils that have had more ability than the self-proclaimed little Evita’s, Che’s and Malcom’s.

When you read the other articles and try to figure out  some of the things those authors are pointing out, do not be so quick to blame them or me for automatic racism. Especially if you disagree. Racism is an excuse and a wedge.

These people are willingly elected. In the Public eye. They are open to these reviews and to these criticisms by virtue of their office. I cannot imagine being so weak that I am offended by words. I would like for my words to be used for praise but when there is no reconciliation or even admission of any understanding of blame, well, praise seems hypocritical. We cannot have UNITY without reconciliation.

There was a time when the norm was for men to act in the best interest of himself and his neighbor, it mattered not the wealth or power accumulated by one or the other. The outcome was beneficial to both when each takes consideration of someone besides themselves.

When the elected do right, we have a responsibility to bolster them. As we have done.

We can no longer wait for them to grow into their position. Without your oversight, questioning and involvement you will fail to recognize what is to come.

They rebuked or as they say “removed from the table” at their Workshop the formation of Citizen advisory Boards. Instead Anthony decided that they would wait until they developed everything before they give you a say. Otherwise, it was said, they would just have to drag that group around and it would become too much effort. So – they decided to table Citizen Advisory groups – they will drag you along instead. Anthony’s words not mine.

They decided not to let you see the agenda being created in the Sunshine. They opted to remain in a closed door out of the Sunshine process to develop and present the Peoples Business. Sounds more like Chicago than Indiantown.

What do you all have to hide?

Why do you have to meet behind closed door to develop the people’s agenda?

What are you afraid of?

Being held accountable maybe?


To address the obvious person missing in this review up until now, Ms. Susan Gibbs-Thomas. The primary criticism I have of Ms. Thomas is that she allowed the other four to steam roll discussion like White Privilege and Systemic Racism into a STRATEGIC Planning session for your Village. She showed grace under pressure from a systemic attack on her from the Council.

While I sat and watched how the demeanor and unapologetic accusations of racism where being leveled against Ms. Gibbs-Thomas and every other person of non-color, I began to see the true nature of what she has been subjected too.

Many in that room (Council Members) accused her of being on a side. They are fine ones to talk.

They have insinuated that Susan is somehow a leader of a group or tribe while the tribal nature of their actions are flagrant.

If standing on a ground of Constitutionalism and Grace place her as a leader with like minded people. AMEN. Where do I sign up !


Do not confuse leadership by example with leadership by edict.  The latter being openly demonstrated by Ms. Clarke when she speaks to White Privelage and Systemic Racism. Or When Anthony speaks to Systemic Racism. Then in turn say MY PEOPLE. Who needs to check their privilege?

Who are your people Ms. Clarke?

Are the White people part of that list?

I know we are on God’s list just like you.

So fellow citizens, when you get angry about things do not be surprised why this is all taking place. It is the actions and words as well as the behavior of the people you elected to represent you. When you elect Socialists, children and thugs to represent you, expect what they give you. Tyrannical self-interest is the agenda you can expect going forward.

We already know that we are going to have accusation leveled against us. We know what we say will be called heresy by many. However, what has been said has needed to be said for a long time. The people of Indiantown need to take back their governance and bring it into the Sunshine before the only people living here are like minded people represented by thugs, bullies, children and agenda driven openly avowed Progressive Socialists.

What you cannot do with a self-honest heart is ignore reality.

It starts with you.

Indiantown Council Workshop

CENTRALIZED -or- DECENTRALIZED

At a recent private gathering, the TAM had opportunity to discuss some Village issues with the First Mayor of Indiantown, Ms. Susan Gibbs-Thomas.

One of the more important things we learned involved her idea to change the way the Village creates their agenda. We asked a lot of questions and Ms. Gibbs-Thomas was more than happy to answer them in depth.

The video below is our takeaway as to what Ms. Gibbs-Thomas is suggesting.

We believe Ms. Gibbs-Thomas is sincere when she explained how she knows that this is real important for Indiantown. Please take the time to watch and consider the idea. It is important.

If you think that the Council should discuss this topic at their Annual Planning Workshop let them know:

OPEN OUR VILLAGE UP – CDC – Covid only 6%

OPEN OUR VILLAGE UP


E-MAIL Your Indiantown Village Council HERE and tell them you want in person meetings NOW


There is no death scare according to experts from the CDC. These are the same experts that Council Members keep saying are who they are listening to. Well the experts you sighted before just said “FALSE ALARM” The WuFlu is not as bad as they have been saying.

So, do they listen or do they keep the fear as a tool to manipulate you and the process of governance. Enough is enough. We the people demand you open the Village Hall and have in person meetings. NOW. We have spoken Will you listen?

The CDC’s website clearly and definitively states:

For 6% of the deaths, COVID-19 was the only cause mentioned. For deaths with conditions or causes in addition to COVID-19, on average, there were 2.6 additional conditions or causes per death.

What is unclear about this?

It is a really pathetic pandemic where only 6% of deaths are due exclusively to COVID-19. Stack that up against the Black Plague, TB or Ebola.

The freak-outs want you to instead focus on the 94% who died with a plethora of comorbidity conditions. Some of the most common ones mentioned in the study are:

Influenza, pneumonia, hypertensive diseases, heart disease, cardiac arrest, heart failure, diabetes, alzheimers, renal failure and on and on. 

Patients with these other conditions also just happened to test positive for COVID-19, and that’s all it took to be recorded as a COVID death. What’s more, the average patient had an average of 2.6 of these other factors when they died.

Even a motorcycle crash victim who died on the scene tested positive for COVID. His death was recorded as COVID until some locals pointed out the sheer stupidity of such a categorization and it was ultimately rescinded.

OK, Look. Dying WITH COVID is not the same as dying FROM COVID.

Only 6% died FROM COVID exclusively. The other 94% died WITH COVID.

Did anybody make an assessment of how many of the 94% would have died anyway, even if they did not have COVID? Nope. Not a one, so we’ll never know for sure. But even a baseball bat could figure out that there has been a significant number who were headed for their earthly exit no matter what else they contracted along the way.


E-MAIL the Indiantown Village Council here and tell them to get their act together and open public meetings – NOW.

Scott Watson Speaks Out

Scott Watson Speaks Out on Facebook


Engineered Incompetence

Dear Indiantown,

I can no longer hold in my frustration and disappointment with what has happen in Indiantown and where it is headed. With that said, I am going to be writing a series of Expose’ on what I see going on in Indiantown, I would put it all in one document but you would be reading for days.

This writing will provide short intro and then I will address the current and very important issue of the Comprehensive Plan and the Land Development Regulations (LDRs) that are being created as we speak.

When we as a Community came together to discuss Incorporation, I could have never imagined the scenario that is being played out today. We all had high hopes and dreams for Indiantown’s future as we knew we had everything we needed to be success right here in our community. I felt so strongly in our community I put my money where my mouth is and was the First person to invest in Indiantown’s future when I wrote a $3500.00 check as a down payment to our consultant to perform the Indiantown feasibility study. I have invested many thousands more and hundreds and hundreds of hours of my time to facilitate Indiantown’s Dream, which leads me to write to you today.

Unfortunately, Indiantown in its infancy has been plagued with incompetence. I, we who started this movement bare some of the responsibility as it was, we the founders who brought some of these people to the table not realizing they were not up to the task until we were well underway. Examples would be our First Village manager , who had no real experience as a Village manager and in my opinion was in way over her head, the same goes for Bonnie Landry who was brought in to head up Growth Management/Planning, and has proven in my opinion to be completely incompetent at all levels. This became painfully clear when she would not work with our Village Council Appointed Comprehensive Plan Committee, then went on to author our first Comprehensive Plan which was an absolute mess. Only after a huge intervention from town’s people and property owners was the Comprehensive Plan Corrected enough to avoid instant litigation and disaster. It was a terribly painful process which for the most part was handled outside of public meetings because we the people were not given ample time in open public meetings to air all of the obvious mistakes, many of which would have stripped property rights from the majority of Indiantown Property owners. Many property owners including myself had to go to extra ordinary lengths to help fix the mess and yet Bonnie Landry still works for the Village, even after repeated promises she would be gone as her conduct has never been and continues to be counterproductive to Indiantown’s wants and needs.

The same scenario is now playing out in the creation the Village of Indiantown Land Development Regulations (LDRs) . The Village has hired a consultant from Miami to write our LDRs. Parts of the first draft of the LDR document has been released and once again, as with the Comprehensive Plan the document is full of mistakes and does not reflect the vision of Indiantown. Quite frankly in my opinion they basically took something that already existed off the shelf, word-smithed the Village of Indiantown into it and sent it to us. So once again it is left up to the citizens and land owners to clear up a Poor document, we are willing and able to do so IF given the opportunity.

In efforts to those ends, the Indiantown Chamber of Commerce Government Affairs Committee has been reviewing the LDR document and submitting our comments etc. to the Village, with no idea if these comments will be acted on, the same scenario that lead to the Mess with the Comprehensive Plan.

It has become clear to all of us on the Chamber committee and other wise in the community that the only way to get this document right , protect our property rights and allow the Village to realize the PROMISE that came with incorporation, is to have a REAL OPEN Public Meeting or Meetings that could take an entire day or days with the village staff and the LDR consultant to hammer out the defects in the document while providing local knowledge of conditions that actually exist in Indiantown .

This is an absolute necessity, for the NEW LDRs as presented, will strip existing property owners of their property rights and make it even more difficult to develop affordable housing, the One thing everyone in Indiantown has been screaming for and It’s NOT addressed in this LDR document.

To add insult to Injury, the Property the Village just purchased to build the future Village Hall on, is not allowed to have Government buildings on it according to the NEW LDRs! I don’t know what else to say!

The Indiantown Chamber Governmental Affairs committee has been asking to have an OPEN PUBLIC meeting with everyone in town, where sufficient time is allowed to openly discuss the issues with the Village staff and the consultant, thus far that request has been denied. I personally called Howard Brown our Village Manager and had a discussion with him this past Tuesday 8/25/2020 in which I discussed to myriad of issues that exist with the LDRs as presented. Mr. Brown once again, as with the Comprehensive Plan tried to dismiss my concerns with the excuse, that I am just not used to looking at LDRs that are different from Martin County’s, which is a ridiculous statement to be making to me.

In making my argument I pointed out that the LDRs as written will not allow the Village to build Government buildings on the New Site they just purchased, to which Mr. Brown answered he really has not looked at the document. After the drawn out “Dodge Ball” of a discussion, Mr. Brown agreed to take the request for a Special Open Public meeting with Village staff and the Consultant to the Village Council for consideration at the regular Board meeting 8/27/2020. To make a long story Short, no real effort was made by Mr. Brown to facilitate this meeting and none was approved by the Village Council. This I find absolutely absurd! We the people of Indiantown are doing our best to correct a document that we are paying a consultant to create and yet we are being treated like an unwanted step child. I have spent thus far over 25 hours reading and preparing written comments to the Village yet have no idea if they will even be looked at or considered.

As I stated above, I have had Enough of the Engineered Incompetence! Why in God’s name does something this important to the Community have to be so difficult? Why are we letting consultants from Miami and a City Manager from Opa Locka drive our Village into a Ditch, with this insanity!

There is NO BOOGEYMAN lets have OPEN PUBLIC MEETINGS and get this right for Indiantown!

I guess Mr. Brown and a few of Our Village Council enjoy turmoil, I don’t know. One can only speculate as to why anyone would intentionally allow avoidable Problems to be created, I believe we all need to think REAL HARD about that.
