The ironic thing about the post at this time, is that I spent about 20 minutes argueing with 2 guys and a gal while in Office Depot today about the manattee protection over kill.

One question/statement I have found to be quite successful when confronted by a manatee weenie is ask them to explain "why in the last ten/twelve years when boat registrations and boat use has skyrocketed, has the manatee population increased by over 300% at the same time"? It would appear that we are doing something right.

we had the same scumbag treehuggin azzholes in the north country, trying to bann snowmobiles, because they said that they destroyed the trails, totally not realizing that we are the ones that spend countless man hours and ten's of thousand's of dollars
every year to maintain these trails. without snowmobilers the trails would not even exist. I hated these people up north and I hate them down here. what they need to do is get jobs, smoke a little less pot, and mind there own friggen business, and for god sake take a shower!

Finally a step in the right direction. Maybe government is finally realizing the hidden agenda for some of these organizations.

I believe that this is a form letter sent to all members of this association....any reprisals would be best served if they were sent to Mr. Delvecchio I would imagine....if Dean is still around the board maybe he can chime in and let us know if he has had any dealings with this group....
