    I'm really at a loss for words.

    Mr. Rivera needs to take a field trip to Florida so I can put my foot up his butt. I would have to pull his head out of it first.

    I know this dead horse has been drug up and beaten many times, but it's funny how we aren't spending "Billions" of dollars trying to control the feral cat population. At least not the way they are running out with torches and pitchforks after these "aggressive" snakes.

    I love how everyone assumes they are a public safety risk and this ban on the interstate transportation will magically erase that.

    Almost word for word the same letter I got.

    How stupid I am, didn't I know how dangerous they are ? How many "top scientists" did I need before I understood just how badly we need this ban ? My opinion matters {} but I really need to be aware of just what a huge impact these incredibly deadly predators are, soon there won't be any wildlife left in Florida except these snakes, and after that they are going to take over the rest of the U.S. one state at a time.

    Is it any wonder why I hate politics and politicians ?

    Could be worth replying thanking them for agreeing that this is a Florida state issue and not national.
    They all singing from the everglades hymn sheet but constantly fail to acknowledge that this ruling has no positive effect in Florida to compliment the current legislation regarding large boids.
    If anything, all the large boids are now trapped in the state and as people cannot sell them over the state line there is an increased chance of release.
