A- South Florida's extreme right-wing blogosphere, represented by Gun Free Zone and Babalu Blog [via Google], have posts today that boldly suggest that they are ready to go to war against the U.S. government and their fellow Americans. From the former...
This administration and some extra gamers are playing with fire…and that is not a pun. My particular opinion is that they do want a confrontation and they are thinking they will win it. Not that they might, should or pretty sure they will: They have the absolute conviction that they will come on top and reign over the ashes.B- Eye on Miami questions the patriotism of the Tea Party movement.

In this country, people will shoot back.
C- IL Bellagio Italian Restaurant's pizza is below average, according to Worst Pizza.
Il Bellagio, if you are going to continue to serve pizzas like the one you served me, you might want to consider taking this food item off your menu. I was disappointed to say the least. This pizza could have been much better if the server paid attention and ordered my pie well done. Not sure if it was the servers fault, or the pizza maker, but there was an apparent disconnect.D- Burger Beast lists his favorite comfort food spots in Miami-Dade.
E- Eat It, Miami eliminates Yelp from his diet.
So here's what I propose, since I am a strong advocate of Gandhi's "Be the change you wish to see in the world." Like, if you hate when people drive recklessly, drive cautiously. You hate litter? Don't litter and pick up trash when you see it. Easy enough? If we all do that, we will have a better world. So, you don't think Yelp's bullsh*t is fair? Don't use Yelp. Don't post reviews and don't check it for suggestions.
