HR511

Post  gatsu7 on Sat Feb 05, 2011 8:20 am

This is the new python ban that we have to fight this year. It looks to be the same bill as HR2811 and S373, which were killed last year. One major difference is that this one is being pushed by Tom Rooney from Florida, a Republican who was just re-elected for another term in November. This is the first time, to my knowledge, that one of these anti-reptile, anti-small business bills has been introduced by a Republican. Usually these bills are supported by democrats and fought by Republicans. This just reinforces my belief that ALL politicians are idiots. No politician should be allowed to have more than 1 term. Period.
USARK will give instructions on how they plan to fight this, with our help, in the near future. In the meantime, please write and email our Republican senators and representatives and urge them to talk some sense into Mr. Rooney. Attacking businesses for no good reason is not what the Republican party is supposed to be about. We have to let these new and re-elected officials know that we didn't elect them because we like them, but because we want them to fix this country, not screw it up further. You can find our senators and representatives on www.opencongress.org.

Sorry for getting a little political. At least I'm mad at Republicans for once Laughing .
