|[Trial of Big Pine Key Women for Euthanizing Key Deer] This trial was really about the Key Deer Refuge’s power over a local resident. The only thing this lady did wrong was originally denying being at the scene. The facts are simple, a deer was severely injured and in pain for an extended period of time. The proper agencies were called and there was no response. A group of local residents took matters into their own hands and agreed that the best course of action was to humanely put the animal down. What was done, was exactly what authorities would have done and have done many times. It has no effect on the Key deer population.
It simply put an animal out of misery that would not have recovered. Instead USFWS and the National Key Deer Refuge intimidated and threatened local residents for responding to the needs of severely distressed wildlife, and ultimately prosecuted the person who did what needed to be done. The same agency that has been violating the Endangered Species Act, by disturbing and destroying Key Deer habitat, that does have a profound detrimental effect on many endangered species, pretends that it is enforcing the ESA
The management of the National Key Deer Refuge used to be one of the most respected organizations on the island. Those days have been gone for many years. They should consider investigating their own activities, and evaluating what they are doing wrong. The monumental funds that are wasted are the real crime here.
I found some old records in the attic. I don’t remember this band, but this album’s awful and it totally messed up the record player!
|[Migrants] It’s bad enough that boatloads of migrants in chugs make it un-encountered to our shores, now migrants flying hang gliders?
Our border must become secure once more.

|Just Dropped In (To See What Condition My Condition Was In) — Kenny Rogers and the First Edition March 16, 1972
Lyrics: “I woke up this mornin’ with the sundown shinin’ in I found my mind in a brown paper bag within I tripped on a cloud and fell-a eight miles high I tore my mind on a jagged sky I just dropped in to see what condition my condition was in I pushed my soul in a deep dark hole and then I followed it in I watched myself crawlin’ out as I was a-crawlin’ in I got up so tight I couldn’t unwind I saw so much I broke my mind I just dropped in to see what condition my condition was in Someone painted “April Fool” in big black letters on a “Dead End” sign I had my foot on the gas as I left the road and blew out my mind Eight miles out of Memphis and I got no spare Eight miles straight up downtown somewhere I just dropped in to see what condition my condition was in I said I just dropped in to see what condition my condition was in Yeah Yeah Oh yeah” Link
|[We Need More Guns] To the sheriff, Bob Gusltieri. Will you explain why you think that law-abiding citizen of Florida are not responsible enough for open carrying guns when the citizens of thirty other states are. Do you have any documented evidence that Floridians are less than responsible?. I remember when the anti-gunners cried that it would be like Dodge City when the Stand Your Ground law was passed. It didn’t happen. It’s the same with open carry. You’re just paranoid, whining about something that might happen but never does. We’re no different than the residents of those 30 other states that passed open carry. Link|
|I learned a lot from my mistakes. So I decided to make more mistakes and learn even more.|
|[“Awful moles”] A few more facts you may be interested in: Although it is generally agreed papilloma virus is responsible, it is not clear at all how it spreads among the deer. Statistically, males get it more, which makes some scientists believe it is spread by direct contact during rutting, etc. – but the bottom line is we have no idea yet!
Good news: white tail deer get this usually early in life – just like the fawn pictured last week, but the growths tend to digress with age, not progress. So she’ll gradually get rid of them with age. As our deer age they gain immunity, so older deer are usually not affected.
Thanks for sharing your concerns! ~Save Our Key Deer

|Crashes of a car are considered fairly safe at 60 MPH. No matter how the vehicle is designed or how you are strapped in, when it stops from X speed to zero instantly, your body parts don’t — and you die or get messed up. Ask a race car driver.|

|[Migrants] Notice the ethnicity of the French protesters. I have said before, I believe that the real powder keg of social unrest in Europe is the immigrants from Africa and the Third World. They were promised a land of milk and honey—but now Europe is going broke. Video|

|Kudos to Nashville Police that killed mass shooter. That’s the only way to deal with them.|
|We now have a full composition of Beethoven’s DNA. Swifties, Jerry Garcia’s Deadheads, and Beyoncé’s BeyHive have nothing on Symphony No. 5 in C Minor composer Ludwig van Beethoven’s fandom. The composer is considered one of the most influential musicians of all time and he defied the onset of deafness in his mid-20s and went on to compose 722 works of music, including 16 string quartets, 35 piano sonatas, and 9 symphonies. Thanks to locks of hair saved by his devoted fans and collaborators, a team of researchers have analyzed his DNA to learn more about the composer’s ailments, almost 200 years after his death.|

|[Selective Regulations] Government overreach is a problem, you may not see it, but many do. As for the Banking collapse of SVB, the federal oversight failed to address the problem when it was noticed back in 2021, they were under review and in 2022 they were under more scrutiny but the FED did nothing. In other words they allowed it to happen. The Railway system, you seem to think deregulation was the cause of the train derailment in Ohio was not. The rule requiring a new electronic braking system for certain trains carrying hazardous cargo did not apply to that train. Trumps deregulation had nothing to do with it. You can believe the talking heads or you can believe the truth.|
