a friend of mine used to "hunt" manatees down in belize. It was legal there till the mid 80's. He says it tastes like chicken.


FYI .50 calibur anti-aircraft guns available at www.puder.com

Dean Ferry;
Austin,Texas has a strong group of tree huggers that may have met have met their match. It seems that the concept that the environment must be saved at all costs is under scrutiny. The Office of Management and Budget is asking for economic justification as part of the evaluation of environmental issues.
Call me 512 657 1104 or give me a fax number and I will send this article I saved for you.
Sometimes, the least likely party to these impasses will come in to be the deciding factor and it seems this may be the answer. Really, it comes down to the simple question, "What is a manatee worth, and are the current costs to enforce these new policies worth the expense to the society?"

This waste of resources is ridiculous .Especially in these times when there are threats to the United States from the terrorist Filth! They should be watching the nuclear plants or Sea Ports. I wonder what the outcome would be for these Pseudo protection programs would be if we all were to vote on it??

Default Thank God I am reasonalble and Republican

Lube 42....HAHAHAHA. Well, you guys already covered the bases, just speaking up and putting my .02 in the bucket. We have only seen the beginning of this radical, marxist behavior by people who operate under the horribly misguided perception that as individuals we want/should live assymetrical without seperate tempermants, talents and convictions. Lord help us, the liberal nazi left is alive and kicking. The time to cage this 3% of the population is now. It's just a matter of time before we get to squirrels and automobiles......Mean Dean, my hats off to you and your efforts. If I can be of any help in battling the radical goofball tyranisits, let me know. Later.

Thumbs up Boaters Rally last night

Here's the article from the local tree-hugger newspaper.

We wrote a check for $150 for the legal defense fund.

"If we keep putting the pressure on, we can put the power back in the hands of the many and out of the hands of the few. What it's all about is simple common sense, and you're all standing up for it and I applaud you for it."


Thanks Dean, Good Stuff! Looks like you had a nice turnout of 600. Excellent! Too bad it's such a long drive and on a Thursday, I would like to attend one of these rallies.
