Vinyard says despite fed shutdown, Fla parks still going strong

by John Kennedy | October 1st, 2013

When the federal door closes, a state door opens — or at least Florida’s state parks are sensing an opening when attracting visitors.

Florida’s Department of Environmental Protection Secretary Herschel Vinyard sent out email Tuesday reminding Floridians that the state’s 171 parks are going strong, even as the National Park Service shutters its greenspace because of the federal shutdown.

“While the national parks are being shut down because of instability in Washington, Florida’s award-winning parks, greenways and trails are available for all to enjoy,”  Vinyard said.

    It’s simply outrageous that today’s government shutdown, hitched to an unrealistic laundry list of demands by the tea party – or else – isn’t just a symptom of Tea Party ideology


    The Tea Party and its aliens in Congress have never been interested in using the government to solve problems or help anyone else other then the Tea Party Itself – Oh how selfish…

    YEP – Instead, the Tea Party truly believes’ that a functioning government is a problem in itself!

    And the it’s overly obvious that the tea party is willy to sacrifice economic stability and unnecessary and untold risk upon the American People to drive their disconnect discorded point of view – despite how regressive and toxic that unrealistic view really is…resulting in untold damage to the country the tea party patriots claim to love $ die for in order to get their regressive backwards way.

    Guess what …2014 is right around the corner and I don’t believe the tea party will be able to be elected to anything other then being a garbage man taking out the trash…their trash…

    Listen lady, just go back into the kitchen where you belong and let us men handle this real world business. I’ll share a word of advice my priest gave me as a young lad “If it’s yeelow let it mellow, if it’s brown flush it down.” Those words changed my life in ways women will never understand. It is not your fault, because g_d made you inferior to begin with. But enough about you broads, lets talk about men. Like most fellas, I enjoy having my urethra stretched out to the max. (I mean who doesn’t?) Anyway I was at Golden Coral the other day and i watched a grandpa jerking it like an angry Japanese soldier on Iwo Jima. Next thing you know BOOM all over the lima beans. To be honest, it seasoned them nicely.
