Want to hunt alligators in Florida?
More permits go on sale Tuesday

If you ever wanted to hunt alligators in Florida, here’s your chance. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission said it will make more than 1,300 gator hunting permits available on Tuesday. “In response to updated alligator population management objectives, the FWC is making 1,313 more harvest permits available in 2018 for county-wide alligator harvest units,” the agency said in a news release. “These permits will be available at GoOutdoorsFlorida.com or in-person at a license agent or county tax collector’s office beginning Tuesday, July 10 at 10 a.m. Eastern time.” Alligator hunts in Florida resumed in 1988 to help control the population,

Comments:
As of an hour ago, there will be 1,000 additional permits. I wonder if the (usually) bow hunting Madman from the Motor City will apply for one. He got a bear permit the last time bear hunting was briefly allowed (quota fulfilled and season ended in just over a day).

This week a naturalist estimated that there are 1.3 million alligators in Florida. My 8-Ball says 2mil.

Breaded with panko and deep fried is good.

I am at my place near Apalachicola and, not two minutes ago, was at the edge of the pond behind my house (literally 75 feet from my back door). I only saw turtles this time, but I know there´s a 4 foot gator in the and and some smaller ones too. Usually, if I go to the pond´s edge, the gators swim towards me because the previous owner threw food scraps out there (on septic here).

But the gators don´t bother me (maybe in a few years when they´re larger). Its the water moccasins that freak me out. I am always very alert when I go near the pond. You won´t find me back there after dark.

"Want to hunt alligators in Florida?" No. (The gators all over the place in Florida freak me out.)

Those permits should also include hunting pythons.

As far as I know, there´s no limit on pythons. Shoot them on sight (with a shotgun). Take all you want. Lionfish, another invasive species from the Far East, now surround the state from Pensacola to Jax. Divers cannot possibly take enough of them. Now restauranteurs have discovered that lionfish are very good tablefare. The same isn´t true of Burmese pythons, but their skins make really fine shoes.

Last night I had a dream about Godzilla devastating a city we were in. Very vivid dreams since I´ve been on CPAP. Attribute this one to the gator stories I´ve been reading.

Sarasota man dies from infectious
bacteria after eating raw oysters
Tampa Bay Times, by Devin Rodriguez    Original Article

A Sarasota man died of an infectious bacteria after eating raw oysters. The bacteria, called Vibrio vulnificus, is often associated with eating raw or under-cooked shellfish or entering into warm coastal waters with exposed wounds. The 71-year-old Sarasota man was said to have eaten the contaminated oysters on July 8 and died two days later, according to the Florida Department of Health. The name of the restaurant was not released. Vibrio vulnificus is a rare disease but infections will lead to vomiting, diarrhea and abdominal pain, according to the department’s website. If the infection is contracted through the skin, it can lead to

Palestinian Authority: We Have

The *international community* considers the Palestinian Authority to be Israel’s “peace partner.” Or used to, anyway. Unfortunately, the facts keep getting in the way. The Palestinian Authority has long paid bounties to the families of terrorists who murder Israelis. Israel has been trying to deal with this incitement to mass murder for quite a while. Recently, Israel passed a law under which amounts paid by the PA to the families of convicted and deceased terrorists will be deducted from tax collections remitted by Israel to the PA. Seems reasonable. But in this video, Hassan abd Rabbo, Spokesman for the PLO Commission of

Last Friday, Lisa Page testified in closed session before the House Judiciary and Oversight committees. That’s the same body that publicly grilled Peter Strzok, with whom Page exchanged venomous texts about Donald Trump. By all accounts, Page was a cooperative witness. Rep. Mark Meadows, head of the House Freedom Caucus, called Page “credible.” “There is new information,” he said, “and that information is credible.” Rep. Louis Gohmert, also of the Freedom Caucus agreed that Page “has given us more insights to who was involved in what.” FBI lawyers instructed Strzok not to answer a goodly number of questions

President Trump offended the entire political spectrum with a tweet this morning blaming the U.S. for poor relations with Russia. “Our relationship with Russia has NEVER been worse thanks to many years of U.S. foolishness and stupidity,” the president said, and he is entirely correct. By this I do not mean to say that Russia is a beneficent actor in world affairs or that President Putin is an admirable world leader. Nonetheless, the president displayed both perspicacity and political courage when he pointed the finger at the United States for mismanaging the relationship with Russia. Full disclosure: I was a card-carrying

LOS ANGELES — Officials say a man accused of attacking his wife with a chainsaw in front of their children at their Los Angeles-area home had been deported from the U.S. 11 times. Immigration and Customs Enforcement spokeswoman Lori Haley says 32-year-old Alejandro Alvarez-Villegas is a “serial immigration violator.” Alvarez-Villegas was arrested on Thursday in a stolen vehicle in Chula Vista, a few miles from the Mexican border. Police said Alvarez-Villegas is suspected of attacking his wife at their Whittier home, leaving her covered in blood. She is expected to recover. It was not immediately clear if

At some point the populist rebellion will outgrow its personality roots and be asked to articulate a program. It is never enough in the long run to merely be against something; it is always necessary to be for something. Inside the chaos of the last decade a few themes have appeared to risen above the bedlam. The following is an attempt to speculatively predict these trends in the knowledge the estimate may be completely wrong. The basic premise is the populist crisis has been created by the 21st century itself. As the post World War 2 order aged the existing elites simply evaded the question of quo vadis secure in the belief they were

Ocasio-Cortez: Occupy Every Airport!

The more I learn about Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the happier I am that she is the new face of the Democratic Party. Ocasio-Cortez is an ignoramus on foreign policy, and is devoted to socialism, an ideology detested by all who would rather hug their pets than eat them. This news makes me even more glad that Ocasio-Cortez is officially Ms. Democratic Party: she is urging Democrats to shut down all American airports: (Snip) Yes, please! Please go straight to LaGuardia and shut it down. But don’t stop there! “Every airport” needs to be occupied and shut down by Democrats. Between now

Former GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney tore into President Trump on Monday after Trump challenged the intelligence community´s assessment that Russia meddled in the 2016 election, calling Trump´s behavior "disgraceful and detrimental to our democratic principles." Romney´s comments came hours after Trump held a joint news conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki, Finland, in which he questioned whether Russia was behind efforts to meddle in the 2016 election. "President Trump´s decision to side with Putin over American intelligence agencies is disgraceful and detrimental to our

The Trump-Helsinki summit brought new accusations in Congress Thursday, as GOP Sen. Jeff Flake of Arizona accused the president of providing ´aid and comfort´ to the enemy. Flake´s choice of words evoked the Constitution´s definition of treason – at a time when President Trump is facing a new level of scrutiny for his refusal to forcefully condemn Russian President Vladimir Putin for election meddling during their summit meeting Monday in Finland. ´By choosing to reject objective reality in Helsinki, the president let down the free world by giving aid and comfort to an enemy of democracy. In so doing he

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. — Three-year-old twins Zyler and Kadyn Sharpe scurried around the boys and girls clothing racks of a narrow consignment store filled with toys. Zyler, wearing rainbow leggings, scrutinized a pair of hot-pink-and-purple sneakers. Kadyn, in a T-Rex shirt, fixated on a musical cube that flashed colorful lights. At a glance, the only discernible difference between these fraternal twins is their hair — Zyler’s is brown and Kadyn’s is blond. Is Zyler a boy or a girl? How about Kadyn? That’s a question their parents, Nate and Julia Sharpe, say only the twins can decide. The Cambridge, Mass., couple

President Trump has now been in office a year and a quarter. President Trump’s results when compared to those of President Obama at the same time are stunning. In every economic measurement, President Trump far out-performs President Obama. The mainstream media and Democrat Party continue to smear President Trump with the fake Russia collusion narrative. In doing so they also continue to ignore President Trump’s many accomplishments. When compared to Obama [and most presidents], President Trump’s efforts to shore up the economy are historic. President Trump’s economy is just plain on fire! Barack Obama was the worst economic president since

Former FBI Director James Comey on Tuesday said “history has its eyes on us” and encouraged Americans to vote for Democrats in the upcoming midterm elections. Comey, who was fired by President Donald Trump in May 2017, issued a tweet urging Americans to snub Republicans this November. “This Republican Congress has proven incapable of fulfilling the Founders’ design that ‘Ambition must … counteract ambition,’” tweeted the former FBI director, a longtime supporter of Republicans. “All who believe in this country’s values must vote for Democrats this fall. History has its eyes on us.” James Comey ? @Comey This Republican Congress has proven incapable of fulfilling the

Whoopi Goldberg exploded on Judge Jeanine Pirro in a fiery on-air debate about president Donald Trump on Thursday´s episode of The View. Towards the end of the show, Pirro praised Trump with lowering the unemployment rate for the first time in 50 years for ´minorities, Hispanics and African Americans´ but Goldberg and fellow The View co-host Sunny Hostin said the credit should be given to former president Barack Obama. Pirro fired back saying: ´You´re suffering from Trump derangement in this room.´ When the View co-host and Trump opponent Meghan McCain said she wasn´t deranged, Pirro pointed at Goldberg, setting the
