Floridians demand Gov. Scott’s appointees initiate US Sugar purchase
Residents will wear stickers saying: “I’m not an actor”
When: Thursday, April 9, 2015
Time: 9 a.m.
Where: South Florida Water Management District Governing Board Headquarters Auditorium: 3301 Gun Club Road, West Palm Beach, Florida, 33406
What: Large turnout to Buy Sugar Land NOW!
Florida Senator Joe Negron (R) said he is planning on introducing legislation asking for $500 million for land purchases, money that could buy U.S. Sugar lands.
Supporters of US Sugar purchase will once again convene at the West Palm Beach headquarters of the South Florida Water Management District to demand that Governor Rick Scott’s appointed water managers purchase 48,600 acres of US Sugar land to restore the Everglades and protect the coasts from pollution. The state of Florida has an option to purchase the land by October, but water managers must take action now for the process to begin.
Last week, actors were paid $75 to attend a Tea Party protest against the purchase.
**VISUALS** Residents wearing “I’m not an actor” stickers. Signs. An enlarged photo of hundreds of Buy the Land supporters from Tallahassee.
Why: The South Florida Water Management District and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers are dumping more about a half billion gallons of highly polluted fresh water a day into the St. Lucie and Caloosahatchee rivers, polluting critical marine habitats and harming communities.
Residents are incredulous that Governor Scott and his appointees will not consider the 48,600 acre purchase option in the US Sugar contract in spite of algal blooms and massive marine die offs that occurred in Indian River Lagoon in 2013 and are now threatening. According to the University of Florida, the land purchase must be considered to stop marine life die-offs.
As polluted water is dumped to the coasts, the Everglades subject of a multibillion restoration project, is starving for water. The solution, according to University of Florida scientists, is to pursue 48,600 acres of sugar land to store and clean the water. Governing board members have largely ignored those pleas and appear intent to allow Big Sugar to walk out of a deal and let restoration evaporate forever.

Whatzup Tea Party! Free Will or not? What would Henry David say?



It is a characteristic of wisdom not to do desperate things.     Henry David Thoreau

It is a characteristic of wisdom not to do desperate things.
Henry David Thoreau

When a person’s free will is taken away it chill’s me to the core. As humans we are morally responsible for our own behavior.  If someone take’s away a person’s free will they take away their freedom.

So it cracks me up when people spout off about freedom but have no issue taking that freedom away.

What is to act or choose freely?
What is to be morally responsible for one’s actions or choices?

So last week when Karen Donahue under the direction of Everett Wilkinson  called Jason Wool to wrangle up actors to be in a piece  that was supposedly to be the  background of a documentary for the Tea Party and spun this off for Jason to be the middle man, a huge lie, she took away his free will.

Then when the actors showed up to do their job and hold their signs and yell and make noise based on this lie their free will was taken away.

Stolen. What’s the price for stealing people souls?

Because when you take away free will, you take away a person’s freedom and freedom is what I thought the Tea Party people stood for?

What do you think?

Henry David Thoreau


Thoreau’s writings went on to influence many public figures.

Political leaders and reformers like Mohandas Gandhi, U.S. President John F. Kennedy, American civil rights activist Martin Luther King, Jr., U.S. Supreme Court Justice William O. Douglas, and Russian author Leo Tolstoy all spoke of being strongly affected by Thoreau’s work, particularly Civil Disobedience, as did “right-wing theorist Frank Chodorov [who] devoted an entire issue of his monthly, Analysis, to an appreciation of Thoreau.”[70]

Actors Duped in Tea Party Protest at South Florida Water Management

To ALL my friends:





I just want to give you everyone an update on this situation with this issue with actors protesting at SFWMD last week. Karen Donahue called Jason Wool to wrangle up actors to be in a piece that was suppose to be the background of a documentary for the Tea Party.  When Karen put out her add the it  said to contact Jason.  Karen spun this off for Jason to be the middle man.  People responded to Jason, because they  know him , because he is a trusted member of the acting community and frequently helps  his fellow actors get gigs.  He had recently gotten Karen a gig. So Jason thought she was just returning the favor. Fifty people were given what they thought was an acting gig. There were sag actors involved but no sag contracts. And no water was provided as required by SAG. NO WATER!

Karen will not talk to Jason. He has tried to call her and she refuses to talk to him.

So it seems the whole thing was set up by Karen Donahue and

Everett Wilkinson.

But who paid the money to Everett?

"I don't know anything about people being paid! These are real protestors"

“I don’t know anything about people being paid! These are real protestors”

Everett   was brought into the meeting and greeted by a friend on the WRAC board. Who was that? And is that person who paid these guys to do this. To trick them.

You have to be a real bottom feeder to do this.

Anyone who knowingly tricks people into doing something by presenting it in a different way is truly a bottom feeder. I

Jason is now receiving nasty emails. They should not be directed at him. Please do not direct your anger at the people who were tricked.

The people you should be harassing is South Florida Water Management to get to the bottom of who hired these guys. I doubt they even care.

We demand an investigation!

Bad Actors hired by Tea party for fake Protest at SFWMD!





Attention to all my film friends: Can you help us Save the Indian River Lagoon:

I miss all the fun.

This was the add on Facebook that was posted by a person named Karen Donahue who apparently was on her way to Michigan  later that night. Probably to her new job at Fox News or some kind of great payola for selling her friends down the filthy, dirty, polluted river last week at South Florida Water Management.  When I  checked her out on Facebook we had 50 or so of the same friends. Since we have many mutual friends in the film industry who have watched me post about this issue for the last three years I’m sure they were quite surprised that one of their own basically screwed them and intentionally used them in a protest to hurt the Everglades.

In the end. Its didn’t hurt that much.

After I  posted the article on Karen’s Page she said this:

“Don’t take the Bait.” This is how I know she is not innocent.

Then she posted  “You know dear Karma is only a bitch if you are.”


Then she deleted all the posts

So I  guess Karma really is a bitch if you are!



Here is the add:

“Political Rally Protesters needed!!
We could use up to 40 people for Rally Protesters this Thursday, April 2nd at 8:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m.
We will pay CASH of $75 per person at end of shoot. NO BREAKFAST
South Florida Water Management District
3301 Gun Club Road
West Palm Beach, FL 33406
Details: Basically to stand behind fence, holding banners or signs that will be provided. Clothing is almost anything!! Use common sense and don’t wear “club” outfits or gym clothes. Just wardrobe for a Political Rally. This couldn’t be any easier…………the only down side is an early start for West Palm Beach location. That is why we’re paying so well!!

Also Jason we have many friends in common.

“I don’t know anything about people being paid! These are real protestors”

Here are some of the great articles that followed:


“Big Sugar supporters hiring actors to pretend to protest is pathetic,” said Progress Florida Executive Director Mark Ferrulo. “Someone should ask who is paying for artificial sweetener to make polluting the Everglades and our drinking water easier to swallow.”
Please see the below screen grab of a Broward Acting Group’s Facebook post offering to pay for pretend protesters to back Big Sugar’s attempt to get out of the land deal they made with the State of Florida.”
Hysterical but pathetic.


More than 50 actors from a Broward County acting group were paid $75 each to protest outside the South Florida Water Management District on Thursday about a controversial land deal they knew little about.

A great article by our own Zaimarie De Guzman.


They were protesting about stopping the land grab! This is not a land grab. Its like opposite. If your going to be against something why not learn about it.


The protest was called by the Tea Party of Miami and Florida Citizens Against Waste, a recently formed group that has no contact information on its website and is not registered to do business in Florida.

I had a conversation with a person who was at the rally and very confused. He thought he was protesting the selling of the land because he didn’t want Big Sugar to make a profit and he was concerned about the “poor and homeless.” which as an actor in South Florida where the pickins are thin I’m sure he’s knows a lot about this. I felt badly for him  but I also saw the light bulb go off in his head when he realized what a messed up thing he did.

Apparently, people pick up these jobs all the time through their group of Broward Actors. These guys need these jobs to make ends meet and I am in no way upset with them with the exception of two people.

How much of this has gone on. Is the Tea Party really a party or a bunch of hired actors? I hope so!

The big questions I have right now are these?

Who paid the Tea Party to pay these people?  That needs to be investigated. Not the actors. Some of them thought they were filming a reenactment for a Tea Party Documentary.

To the people at

@sagaftra. Is there anyway to investigate this?

I also think it’s important that people step forward anonymously and let it be know what else they were told about the gig.

And thirdly, I’d like to know why there was no Craft Service Table. This is very bad form Tea Party. We all know part of the gig is providing good food for all.

Feel free to email me at clenz@mac.com.

The whole thing is really pathetic but funny and very telling. For the future if you want to know how to put on a great protest we can totally hook you up.
