It’s been a busy week
The Bear Hunt
I really hope the FWC who opened up this hunt on bears all over the state that were not bothering anyone saying they were saving our lives from nuisance bears that eat people garbage are satisfied with what happened yesterday. We have no idea what will happen but we do know what happened yesterday.
From a friend on Facebook: So a friend of mine with the county (Marion) Sheriffs called me today and asked me if I was going out to protest the hunt and I said I was planning on hiking this weekend. He wanted to let me know that the local sheriffs deputies were all given an FBI bulletin due to the “High Threat of violence.” Apparently hunters have threatened to open fire on anyone they see trying to disrupt their hunt.
Many reports of lactating mothers. One cub under 100 lbs.
My heartfelt grateful thanks to the volunteers from speak up wekevia who monitored the hunt and documented with video and photos.
To everyone who was just awoken to the travesty’s that go on in Florida. You may be outraged but I can guarantee that NO ONE is Tallahassee cares. Rick Scott has an agenda. He is doing what he set out to do. He cannot be impeached and he has no remorse about this hunt.
You can crab all you want but if any of these commissioners give you anything you want they will be replaced.
What can we do?
We can make sure the news is reporting correctly. I saw a report yesterday from CBS News. CBS this guy misreported the whole thing. I would ask for my money back. We can let our legislators know how we feel and we can let the people running know (the ones that don’t want to piss off the hunters) that unless we all talk and come up with a plan there will no land to hunt on.
I went through all the permits and only found one person from Martin County who bought one. I was hoping for none. This speaks volumes because I really did think there would be a bunch of people going.
Here is the list of all the permits
Unfortunately, while we’re busy fighting with each other you gotta know there’s bad stuff going on. Yesterday was a bad for Florida and a bad bad day for the bears and unless we talk to each other it will never get fixed.
Hunters there will be no hunting because there will be no land to hunt on so I suggest you start thinking about this.
News people: We are not animal activists. We are citizens of our state.
HSUS don’t use this as an opportunity to make money to pay your staff. All money should be going towards the lawsuit.
Here is the main facebook page. Please do not give any money to HSUS. It doesn’t help us.
Lost Dogs of South Carolina
Speaking of HSUS.
Last week I wrote this about the dogs from South Carolina and a local shelter claiming they were from the storm which I knew could not be true.
This week I was sent this message.
JUST IN: Hours after #BenghaziHearing debacle, Boehner names new House Select Cmte to investigate #PlannedParenthood
How much money will be wasted on fake videos? These people claim to be fiscally conservatives they have no problem spending millions of dollars on witch hunts? Riddle me that! I could sit here and write a blog on how many people got killed under Regan but it would make difference to the Hillary Haters. They are so stuck in their hate circuits there is no getting out.
Another Blog I wrote about the Anthrax attack in Boca Raton.
I have for years walked around with the knowledge that someone called and asked us to research Anthrax 2 weeks before the attack and I never knew why. The answer came from a friend of mine and it chilled me to my core.
So because the world is amazing a friend of mine shared this story with me. I have walked around with a lot things from when this happened and one the questions was why did we get the call to do research on this. It came from someone at AMI and I never wanted to get that person in trouble. I had some theories but I never ever ever expected this.
From my friend Victoria:
It was a very scary time for me as a mother. Our daughter, Summer, sat at the desk next to Bob’s. Summer was Bob’s photo-journalist assistant. Yes, there were at least 3 others who had spores within their noses. I got the phone call from Summer when Bob died. They knew what it was, they just kept it under wraps and out of the public. Her phone call to me was: “Mom, I’m to young to die! I had Sammy in here on Saturday to do some work. Bob got the Anthrax on Friday!” Yes, there were people in the building on MONDAY swabbing everything. When they found spores on the keyboards and hand railings within the building – they sent everyone home. They were not allowed to take anything but themselves out of the building. That very day, they began swabbing the noses of the employees – some were put on cipro immediately. Summer was one of those. I sat with her every day for the FBI updates. I went through the most trying time – she had an allergic reaction to Cipro. A very bad reaction. Then, the FBI decided that since Bob and Summer lived within the same neighborhood, an approach to the Lantana Municipal Airport, they began swabbing their homes and yards. Nothing was found at their homes. We were told at least a month before the press got hold of it, that the spores were throughout the building, compliments of the A/C. It seems so strange that the AMI people were working and having daily briefings at the Sun Sentinel building in Delray, yet they were continually told “Share nothing with the press!” Everyday after briefings, the parking lot was full of TV crews…… I will say this, AMI paid their employees in cash each week, even though most of them were not working…. It was a very sad time for our family. (Now that AMI has moved out of Boca, Summer is without a job since September. She worked for AMI since she was 17 – and she is 39 now.)
Let it be known that David Pecker, the owner of AMI at that time, went above and beyond for his employees. Everything, I mean everything was left behind by the employees. Coffee mugs, purses, their identification, personal pictures and things on their desks. When Guiliani had the building decontaminated, they asked if any of the AMI employees wanted anything of a personal nature back. All stated NO. There were thousands of dollars of photos in the photo-journalists storage which could not be used.”
So there you have it. We had anthrax in Boca way before we even knew it was there and it totally under wraps. So I have to worry about what else was under raps.
We’ll never know who was responsible and I think if Bob had not died we would have know about this at all.
A very disturbing week on my blog, in my world. People who are suppose to be doing the right thing are not.
I can only hope next week will be better.
