Just had another meeting with our Senator. He has a plan A and a plan B and a plan C. I trust him totally. He says relax,but I can't. If we get thru Wed we should be OK. Time and public opinion seems to be on our side but we will probrably be faced with the same thing next year. But we will be ready then. The money folks tried to blindside us this time.They won't do it again.Did everyone catch the comments about the "cigarette boats"? I kept trying to explain the difference but just gave up,guess it doesn't really matter,but kind of humorous in a serious situation. I asked the reporter if he always ordered a rum and coke or a rum and cola Or if he asks for a Kleenex or a facial tissue. He didn't understand,so I just said OK,call them Cigarette boats.

They already have in some places . Can't disturb the dune grass Can't go too fast . Can't make too much noise. Can't talk on a cell phone. Can't smoke. Gotta wear a seat belt. WTF. The United States of Russia
How the hell did we survive all these years without all these laws to protect us from ourselves?

No kidding. And just remember what a BETTER place the world was before all these GD phucking protect us from ourselves laws went into place.

It is pathetic how the "common legislator" thinks that we are such idiots we need protectiing when in reality it is the legislator who is the phucking MORON.....
