I'm here in southwest Florida. They have Big Cypress National Preserve closed, so the Turner River can't be used!? The only Park Rangers I ever
see during the summer and this time of the year is non park rangers emptying the trash at the landing. Only Canoe's and Kayaks. They do nothing in
the park this time of year. No money is being spent keeping it open except trash pickup. Hey, just don't pick up the trash, or I will do it for
They have spent more money on the signs saying they are closed in all of Everglades National Park/s than the people paid to check to make sure people
aren't using OUR LAND and Water We Paid For!
I was at the East River Today(State Owned) and I talked to 2 real nice older Gentlemen that were fishing from Kayaks.
The one guy I spoke to had a soft spoken southern accent and very articulate. They had the right set up from the clothes they were wearing to the
fishing equipment on hand which told me they were very experienced and take their sport they love seriously. (I'm telling you these details because
this gives you an idea of their attitude and demeanor when talking to the ranger, obviously posing no threat!
These guys weren't drinking beer in tank tops and cut off jean shorts with any agenda. You know, it doesn't matter if they were, it is still ours and
we pay for it and they hire these buffoons.
He told me they drove to Chokoloskee Island (Part of the 10,000 Islands here on the West Coast FL) and were unloading their boats in the water and a
Park Ranger told them they can't fish out in Chokoloskee Bay because it is closed. They seemed to handle it well even though WE THE PEOPLE ALL pay
for our Parks. The guy said he had a big gun on him so they didn't press the issue. I know some of these Park people here and they know me.
We talked about the idiots(Gov) real agenda and how this makes no sense and we all kind of laughed at Morons in the government.
People, this is beyond stupid. I don't think I would have been so nice if this happened to me. Probably would have him call his supervisor and keep
going up the chain and who is giving the orders. I'm not one to hold back and will call people out, which is not to be self serving, but when I see
wrong doing, I say something.
Everyone that cares and has spine, do some investigation and call these people out, don't let them get away with this, this is ours!
Check this out and this will make your blood boil even more! This is related
