    Boycott Florida

    Interesting FL impacts….

    The Reverend Jesse Jackson, in the wake of the Trayvon Martin verdict, made
    this proclamation several days ago-

    "I want all African Americans to know that it is time to boycott the whole
    state of Florida!!! No concerts, conventions or ball games. No vacations in
    the sunshine state and no orange juice. Stay away from Florida. Boycott
    anything FROM Florida!"

    Fox News noted that almost instantly, the property values in Florida shot up
    and vacation spots began to sell out. The crime rate is expected to continue
    to fall to record lows until the boycott is over.

    I wonder what % of the population as whole and the black population actually listens to these race baiters?

    I mean other than being on the news for silly stuff, is he or Al even relevant?

    That and venomous snakes. I'm ok staying here in Maine where the only apex predator I'm even likely to see will be a bear thank you.

    My son lives down there. One night his dogs were acting a little funny. He notices some scratches on them the next morning but didn't know what caused them. That night he heard some strange noises on the back porch. Going out to see what it was there was a six foot alligator or maybe a crocodile (forget which one it is) on his back porch. I'll stay where I am at also.

    I'd be a lot more afraid of a bear than a crocodile or alligator... Crocs will just lay there and bake in the sun. Bear, might just decide you look tasty, or too much a threat to a nearby cub, or trying to steal their dinner... Not to mention, I'd feel much more confident in my handgun disabling a croc than a bear. Perhaps that isn't truth, but... Another point might be that you see plenty of croc wrestlers, but I've never seen anyone wrestle a bear and come out on top...

    Bears are a lot less likely to "intrude" on populated areas then snakes and crocs. Not to mention that bears don't hide under hoses, flower pots, ect.

    Two completely different animals. Crocodiles are VERY aggressive and have little fear of humans. Alligators are the exact opposite. They usually have an intense fear of humans.

    Crocodilian aggression is the reason cross and alligators only co exist in a few (I think one) place(s).
    No man alive can beat me in a fair fight: It's not fair to chase a man down and beat him.

    That is good to know... I still think I like my odds vs. a Croc better than vs. a bear. lol. Maybe it's not rational, but, most fears aren't, right? I mean, in addition to taking Crocodiles over bears, I'd take bears over spiders any day. That one surely can't be too logical.

    Boycott Florida

    Interesting story. However, I would also like some cites for the claims in the OP.

    I fail to see how this is a bad thing.....

    The only ones who listen to that J hole are the criminal types anyways.
    So replace "blacks" with "criminals" and that is who Jesse Jackhole is talking to.
    Provision for free medical attendance and nursing, for clothing, for food, for housing, for the education of children, and a hundred other matters, might with equal propriety be proposed as tending to relieve the employee of mental strain and worry. --- These matters obviously lie outside the orbit of congressional power.

    Crocnado!!! At least the crocs can keep after their food after they hit the ground, unlike great white sharks falling from the sky.
