    they can bite me

    first of all this is where um going to go off because im tired of this bs. Virginia where i am stationed is already working on this too. Not on all pythons just rectics, burmese, anacondas ans boas. Still bs. First of all i will keep my snakes and they cant do anything about it, second of all what gets me heated up the worst is that they want to consider boas a dangerous animal, but what that stupid cocker spaniel living next door that tries to rip my kid's feet off. This is bs lawmaking by animal hating retards that dont know the difference between a garter snake and an earthworm.

    I pointed this out before it is interesting that they don't even have the names correct. Boidae is one Family and Pythonidae is another. I understand this is the way it is written so I expect if it is passed this way it can be challenged at least for the pythons. It is a mounting problem!

    So we challenge there flaw and throw Boa's under the bus? I'm not trying to be mean but that is probably what MOST would assume by that... I'm starting calling tomorrow... THIS LAW IS BS... It's just to Earn revenue

    Then again is all those people in IL weren't living off MY TAXES we wouldn't need this... :\

    What we need in IL is a bill on Food Stamps..... I'm one of FOUR...Four people at my work that DON'T get food stamps. I only get 20-25 hours a week as well,.... I'd go further in to this BS....BUT our more important fight in this "permit system"

    Do they care about hearing from people outside of the state? I'd love to support you all but I don't know if my opinion would matter to them.

    23 and the date the animal is to be acquired.
    24 (b) The applicant must comply with all requirements of this
    25 Act and the rules adopted by the Department to obtain a permit.
