Thumbs down Well, it doesn't look good....

For the Florida Manatee or Power boaters!

http://www.floridacapitalnews.com/le...302manatee.htm

Notice how the STM Club had amendments that they WOULDN'T allow to be seen 24 hours before the the committee met. Maybe it's time to sell the boat/house and buy a ranch with horses?! At least I wouldn't have to worry about the Save The Horse club telling us how to raise our horses and where/how to ride them!
Man, this really sucks!
MD

PS The STM CLUB is root of the problem, notice this quote

"Working in constant conference with directors of the Save the Manatee Club, Sen. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Weston, replaced Posey's entire bill with her own".

Hi Dean ~

I tried to send you a private message a few weeks ago -- A friend of ours is in the final stages of opening a Marina in Florida and is running into some snags because of manatee laws.

He loves manatee, but wants to know who can help him out in his quest, where he can go for support, rather than sit back and see his project get shut down.

Let me know if you got the private OSO message, or tell me how I can contact you by email.

Thanks!

BK

Dean why don't you look at some of the other problems in you state..Like Jeb..He defrauded Broward federal savings in ft. Laderdale.....to the tune of 4 million...
The Great American Bank and trust for 9 million
or the gulf oil and drilling supply corparation...


Or maybe George jr. and his fraud..
The sooner defense development fraud
Harken energy insider trading
The MK industries fraud that all the bush family members profited from......Makes the manatee fight look like kids play...and the fraud is covered by the tax payer..US..

Why in the hell are you ragging on him????

Ya know Dean's got a nice house on the river that is slowly being taken away by the STM........maybe you should have something like this happen to you........and then some nobody can come along and belittle you.......

You simply amaze me.....Everytime you post.......

SC, What the FVCK does that have to do with the F'n manatee and the F'n STM Club...

---------------------------------------------
Sorry to hear that, Dean. I've been trying to support Harrington's bills as much as possible. They self-servingly interfere again!!!

BTW,
Did you look up the Tino Martinez OL thread since your return. I don't think you would have wanted it. L8R!

BD, Shor,
Thanks for the back-up, and don't worry, I don't even pay attention to what's his name?? BUT back to the topic, it is just another example of how Special Interest are affecting politics in Fl. This is an election year and I will make my VOTE COUNT!!! And all my local elected officals are behind this legislation, BUT all these others who voted against this bill, they need to be booted from office. I'm going to stay in the fight, because it's a the best thing for the Manatee and the Fl. boater.
BD,
The last time I checked that e-bay thread on the OL, the bid was like 140,000$ and climbing!! Definitely out of my $ range. But thanks for the info.
BK,
I'll check my private E-mail messages tonight when I get home, but I didn't see one the last time I checked. Have your friend go to:
www.cfwbrevard.org and
www.standing-watch.org
and see if they can give him any advice. I wish your friend all the luck in the world and if he needs more data, let me know.
Talk to you all soon,
MD
