HOW NICE....A FEEL-GOOD STORY, DESIGNED TO MAKE AMEWRICANS DISREGARD THE FACT THAT.....many other Haitian refugee's have gotten rich, commiting medicaid and medicare fraud in S.Florida....and now they have added insurance fraud to their talents.....GOD BLESS AMERICA.....

Haitians are becoming the fastest growing prison population in Florida. How a western society can embrace a 5th world culture is beyond me. Headless animal carcasses are washing up on shore daily. Precious pets are "disappearing" daily that are being used in animal sacrifices. Yea This is a feel good title used in the article alright, if the Overall public really knew the "mindsets" of many of these cultures? They wouldnt allow them within a hundred miles of our shores. You can Thank Bill and Hillary Clinton for throwing Florida under the bus while standing on a podium playing the kind and compassionate good guy politicians. You can liken it to the Mariel boatlift under Carter, where the term "car-jacking" came into existance.

Worst move this country ever made was.....While Canada was recruiting the wealthy chinese, that wanted outta Hong Kong before the takeover.....We were welcoming the Haitians with AID's , that were washing up on our shores....Great Logic there.....

The Coast Guard should sink the garbage scows bearing these animals while they are still at sea... before they have a chance to dirty up American shores.

We just should'nt allow anymore....even the churches that sponsor them coming here, with all their good intentions....eventually lose touch on what they are up to, and many begin taking from our entitlement system....if this government is to really cut spending, i would think this situation a fabulous start....Also, those born in Haiti, that are convicted of a felony, get to be forcibly re-patriated.....

So happy that most of you negative contributors to this thread are marginal at best. You probably didn't vote for Obama which means that you lost twice. Let me sum it up for you racists. You don't matter here in the good old USA. If you did, Obama would not be President, again! The good white folks, like me, who got burned by Bush's policies helped send a message to you fat cat racist republicans. You skrew us, and we will give you what you hate the most...A black boss!

It's this huge, once really nice swap meet/flea market in Fort Lauderdale on Sunrise Blvd......it has slowly turned to sh*t, as the haitians have slowly taken it over...now it is something to be avoided....

Thanks for the info~~
Nothing better than a good OUTDOOR flea market on a nice weather
day.
One of my pet peeves with some flea markets is the piles and piles of cheap junk from China that couldn't be sold at the dollar stores or WalMart.
Next stop...our landfills are brimming over with it.
