Re: Boaters vs. manatees in Florida

Was that article written by a journalist? I couldn't understand a word of it.

Further I can't understand your line with the link.

Care to explain as the Journalist sure can't

Re: Boaters vs. manatees in Florida

Know what you mean. I have a hard time understanding the thought processes of the tea-party movement, (not to get political here).

Re: Boaters vs. manatees in Florida

"We cannot elevate nature above people," explained Edna Mattos, 63, leader of the Citrus County Tea Party Patriots, in an interview. "That's against the Bible and the Bill of Rights."

Why does a response like this not surprise me?

Does that mean they were both set down by Moses?

Re: Boaters vs. manatees in Florida

Poor dumb animals, all they want to do is root around in the bottom sediment. Then there are the manatees..

I thought there were not supposed to be political comments on this site?

Re: Boaters vs. manatees in Florida

I predict that there will be Manatees in Florida long after the tea party has faded into history like the Luddites and the Know-nothings.
