Riding a sea turtle is totally illegal.

Riding a sea turtle is totally illegal.

If riding endangered species is in fact illegal (Sea turtles and Manatees for starters), what happened to those two girls and why did those boys jumping on a manatee get off with a little slap on the wrist?


How much trouble this woman could be in
 

MELBOURNE BEACH -- Pictures on social media show what appear to be girls riding a sea turtle on a Brevard County beach during the critical sea turtle nesting season.

One picture shows what appears to be a young girl looking as if she's riding a large sea turtle, either sitting on or hovering over it with her hands in the air.

The other picture shows another girl, but her hands appeared to be pressed down on the turtle's back. She was either sitting or leaning over its shell.


These pictures of what appear to be two girls riding a sea turtle, allegedly at Melbourne Beach, have sparked outrage on social media and prompted an investigation by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. It is illegal in Florida to harm or harass sea turtles.

Save Lake Eola Park Petition


One of the very few parks left in central Florida and maybe all of Florida where a pet lover can walk with their pet in peace and enjoy the day with friends and Florida is about to chop this off and hand it off to developers?

Local group fights high-rise proposal in Lake Eola Park

City planning board to discuss proposal Tuesday

UPDATED 7:22 AM EDT Jul 21, 2015

The new tower would go up at East Central Boulevard and North Rosalind Avenue but the project has strong critics who plan to make their presence known Tuesday in front of the city planning board.

The 28-story high-rise is designed to have residential units, shops, restaurants and a parking garage. It is the brainchild of Chicago developer Mark Bortz, who owns the two buildings that would be taken down to make way for the high-rise.

The proposal also includes outdoor seating, a water wall and other park enhancements.

But a group called Save Lake Eola Park Park said the land that the new building would take up was deeded from St. Luke’s Cathedral to be used as a public park only.

The development is ultimately subject to City Council’s approval after the municipal board reviews it.

The city planning staff recommended that the proposal be approved, but only under 10 pages of conditions, including everything from trees to lighting. They are meeting at 8:30 a.m. Tuesday to discuss the proposal.

into your language for all to read.


9 Investigates: Is Florida's bear hunt necessary?

It started out being 250 bears?

Now it is up to 320?


Black Bears food tupelo, saw palmetto, blueberry are being gathered up and sold faster than it can grow!

But 9 Investigates discovered that FWC doesn’t know exactly how many bears live in the state.

“Most animal populations should be estimated every generation, which is roughly every eight years for bears,” said Sarah Barrett, of FWC’s Black Bear Management Program. “We have updated numbers on four of the subpopulations and are collecting the data for the remaining three subpopulations.”

“If they’re going to hunt, they may as well kill them all because they have nothing to eat,” Lake County resident David Baumgardner said.

Baumgardner’s family has lived in Lake County for three generations. He said his family has always shared the land with the bears, but recently they have had far more interactions.

“I have seen more bears, morning, noon, afternoon and night in the past six years as the bears scurry about trying to find native food sources than I have in the previous 65 years,” Baumgardner said.

Immigration and crime


See if any of this sounds familiar to my friends/followers?

In recent weeks, there has been an upsurge in controversy over crime committed by immigrants.

Fact!

Both legal and illegal immigrants have far lower crime rates than native-born Americans do.

Even if they did not, it does not follow that immigration restrictions and deportation are the right solution to the problem.

Claims that we could lower violent crime rates by reducing immigration or deporting more illegal's are fundamentally misplaced.

Indeed, if reducing violent crime is really the goal, we could shift some of the vast resources currently devoted to keeping out and deporting peaceful


Numerous studies show that immigrants have lower crime rates than natives, a finding which holds true even if you focus solely on Mexican immigrants – the main objects of Trump’s ire. Indeed, Mexican-born immigrant males aged 18-39 who lack a high school diploma actually had a lower incarceration rate in 2010 (2.8%) than all native-born males of the same age group (3.3%), regardless of education level (the incarceration rate for native-born men without a high school diploma was 10.7% in the same year).

Now try this if you will?

All Florida Black Bears are the cause of pet food being eaten by wild life in central Florida and all of the trash containers being invaded in central Florida?

If we kill innocent Black Bears all over Florida our trash will be safe if left out all day and all night and we can feed our pets outside anytime that is convenient for humans?

As with, shifting some of the vast resources currently devoted to keeping out and deporting peaceful migrants and reinvest them in combating violent crime and terrorism.

We also should/could shift some of the vast resources currently devoted to unnecessary meetings and hunts to laws the will deeply punish the habitual offenders leaving their pet food out, feeding the bears and placing their trash containers out the night before trash pickup day?


 

Lets face the truth, if deporting legal and illegal immigrants will do little to effect our crime rate?

How is it that killing innocent Black Bears all over Florida except in the problem areas will solve that problem?

And with this my friends/followers, the Defense Rests!

Lets hold another Hunting Season

Coyotes killing cats in central Florida
Well, I say,
 "Lets hold another Hunting Season and Kill all of the Coyotes!"

This way stupid, selfish, pet owners will have no need to bring in their pets at night and maybe

'HITLER'

would still be outside trying to round up something to eat?

Why not it worked on the poor innocent Black Bears so that stupid, selfish, Floridians will once again not lock up their trash and can now start feeding the Florida Panther and/or our Raccoons and get ready for their own personal

'Hunting Season'!

When if ever will this foolishness stop?

Soon, very soon, central Florida will look like the rest of the

 "Cement Cities around the country!"

One small step from the Florida Supreme Court System!

Florida Court throws out districts, Maps
Well this ever end?
One small step from the Florida Supreme Court System!
One giant step for Floridians!
Or is it?
Only time will tell.
This has been going on since long before I arrived in the state so I seriously doubt it!

Remember my Floridian Democratic and Republican Friends, if you keep voting your political party because your parents did, your grandparents did and your great-grandparents did, you will be getting the same shaft that your parents did, your grandparents did and your great-grand parents did?

Wouldn't it be better for you, your children and your grandchildren if we all joined in, dumped all of our congress both parties and start fresh with better Floridian Laws?

If you had more of your rights, money, health and home, your family, your children's family and your grand-children's family will sleep better, have more money to enjoy life better, because you will be healthier?

Florida Supreme Court throws out Congressional districts, Maps will have to be redrawn before next year's election


Lawyers duked it out in the courtroom Wednesday over Florida's new congressional maps.

TALLAHASSEE, Fla.

The Florida Supreme Court is throwing out the state's congressional districts, saying the Republican-controlled Legislature violated a constitutional amendment approved by voters in 2010.

The ruling Thursday means new maps will have to be drawn for most of the state's 27 congressional districts

before next year's election.

A coalition of groups that including the League of Women Voters challenged the maps, saying they didn't adhere to the amendment approved by voters that dictates political districts can't be drawn to benefit incumbents or political parties.

A lower court agreed that GOP operatives worked behind the scenes in violation of the amendment, but approved a second map that changed only two districts.

Challengers said that wasn't enough.

Bear Clan Native Americans


 

 
Welcome São José do Rio Prêto, Sao Paulo Brazil


To one of our

Black Bear Clan sites


I believe that just about, if not every tribe through-out Indian Country has a

"Bear Clan?"

Our village (tribe) changed the Bear Clan somewhat in the early 1940's thanks in part to a youngster being a youngster.


The land that our Mohiigan's call home has many Black bears also living in and around the land.

We call them our neighbors and they look it is as their land also.

When our ancestors arriver there were many more animals, bears included.

However, since first contact their as with our families have been to a point or almost extinct!

Un-like the Black Bear, we are being called 'extinct' by this government and most Reservation Indians because thousands of our elders/ancestors were declared extinct by either "Rape" or "Marriage and no longer being called "Mohiigan or any other tribe for that matter?"

The Black Bear is systematically becoming extinct because they are in the way!

Come to think about it, so are we?

Do not mistake adaptation and survival with "going extinct".

We are simply learning to beat you at your own game.

The bear family is being extinct because of being killed!

BLACK BEAR HUNTING


BLACK BEAR HUNTING
The state of Florida still has no idea of how many Black Bears are in Florida?

No limit on how many hunting permits are to be sold by the state of Florida starting on August 3rd for a October hunt?


No restrictions of where a hunter is coming from?

No bear hunting in the area where humans refuse to control their trash, stop leaving their pet food out all day and night and/or stop feeding the bears?

The hunters can come to our neighborhood to shoot our bears with a high powered weapon with a silencer.

Do you know how far a bullet can travel fired from someplace around our home/your?

Depending who you ask, between 1 and 15 miles.

Our town is 3.4 square miles and people have been hunting inside of this for years! :-(

What this means to my family and any family in a small town anywhere around this

"Bear Slaughtering Grounds!"

"When anyone gets a gun buys a permit and shoots?"

"We are all in the line of fire from their bullets!"

Guess this does not matter as long as our politicians get their kick-backs?
P.S.
Our town is a minimum, 45 miles from the towns with a bear problem?

Can your pet do this?


 
A true "Believe it or not."

This morning at play Breanna's mom found an unused string tie pouch and gave it to Breanna for play after tying four knots and pulling them tight.
 




 within minutes she, Breanna, had untied the knots.

Mom did this a few more times and each time Breanna untied the knots.
So Dad, the old navy salt, tied the knots with four square knots, same deal. so I tried it with one square, one granny, one square, and one granny knots,
 

 same thing Breanna holds the pouch with the two front paws and untied the knots with her teeth!

She has been doing this to by native bandanna's for years.


Give it a try, I dare you?
