John Gifford, a University of Miami marine biologist was quoted in a newspaper article and stated, "The Florida peninsula was two times its current size back then [12,000 years ago], and the Gulf of Mexico was more than 100 miles west." He said Florida was not a desert, but it was an arid climate. Each Florida spring was an oasis.
"Restoration" is a slippery word that eco-nuts use to mean destroying
modern progress. "Restoration" could maintain modern progress if the everglades
are enlarged. It would be restoration project that restores the size of
the everglades to conditions similar to before modern development.
Similar ideas have been urged regarding reefs.
My ancestors helped settle Key West and the
Curry Mansion is still on the local tour. Nearby, Smathers Beach
is a man-made beach, and one of Florida’s top ten. As a sixth generation
Floridian and a lifelong resident, I treasure Florida’s environment.
One key to success will be to keep government
out. Much of Florida Bay is part of the Everglades National Park,
so the Bay needs to be privatized. Much Florida water is socialized and
Florida land is 30 percent socialized (government-owned). All freedom
is founded on the private ownership of property.
The former U.S.S.R., East Europe, and China
prove that socialism is environmentally disastrous. The Everglades prove
that socialism is environmentally disastrous for Florida. Government built
roads through the Everglades, straightened rivers, drained wetlands, cut
canals, and subsidized cattle and sugar with taxes and other socialism.
The government has already done more damage than private enterprise could
ever have afforded to do.
Fish farming is lauded, and government waterways are panned in new specialty license plate proposals (at http://rexcurry.net/ecotags.html and below). The specialty tags call for privatizing socialized waterways, and for protecting private aquaculture. Florida would lead the nation as the first state to have the libertarian license plates.
During my legal career, people have asked me if it is wise (or constitutional) for government to own and control so much water. Water is far too important for the government to be involved.
The tags referenced here help fight antidisestablishmentarianism.
The first car tag celebrates the farming of snook (& sturgeon) at the Mote Marine Laboratory in Sarasota, an effort to save the fish from the “tragedy of the commons” that snook have suffered under socialism in waterways. Mote also is raising Gulf and short-nosed sturgeon and has plans to include pompano, flounder and snapper in its program. Funding is through the William R. Mote Scientific Foundation.
Another tag commemorates the farming of bass, including the popular Chilean sea bass that is enjoyed at many restaurants.
“Farm Snook: End Soggy Socialism”
“Privatize Waterways: Protect Wild Dolphins”
“Fish Farms: Go Farming”
this tag celebrates the farming of bass, including the popular Chilean sea bass that is enjoyed at many restaurants.

ENLARGE THE EVERGLADES http://rexcurry.net/tageverglades6b.jpg http://rexcurry.net/tageverglades6b.jpg
The government must be kept out of any project to enlarge the Everglades (and otherwise removed from the Everglades) or the Everglades will end up like the Aral Sea. http://rexcurry.net/everglades.html
The Aral Sea was once the world's fourth-largest body of fresh water, covering an area the size of Ireland. But then the nation around it were enslaved by the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. With their looney planned economics and leviathan schemes, the socialists diverted the rivers that fed the inland sea and used them to irrigate vast cotton fields where socialist slaves were forced to pick cotton (This is not a joke). Many of those socialist slaves actually were slavs (the etymological root of the word "slave" due to the fact that even farther back in history, slavs were slaves. http://rexcurry.net/wordmaster.html
The result for the Aral Sea: it shrank by 90 percent to a string of isolated stretches of water. http://rexcurry.net/tageverglades6b.jpg

Manatee Farms http://rexcurry.net/tagmana1.jpg
Manatee Farming http://rexcurry.net/tagmana1.jpg
Environmentalists and public officials must be prevented from interfering with the building of more electrical plants.
More manatee can be saved if they are
farmed where warm water is discharged. One
way that capitalists can farm manatee is
by fencing them in where warm water is discharged
(another method is by using “homing” tags
to own and track manatee as private property).
If “sea cows” were farmed like other cows then people could eat them, they wouldn’t be endangered, and the many “manatee festivals” in our state could then provide culinary delights from their namesakes, as does the strawberry festival, tomato festival, rib festivals, seafood festivals, et cetera.
Manatee were used in history for meat, bone, hides and fat. manatee were relied upon among ancient Indians and manatee hides were made into leather shoes, cords and shields, and the ivory-like bones were thought to have medicinal value. Florida Indians hunted manatee to supplement to their diet and may have sold excess meat to the Spanish.
In the seventeenth century, shiploads of dried manatee meat were shipped from the Guianas to feed sugar plantation laborers in the Caribbean. Pioneers arriving in the nineteenth century shot manatee for meat, oil and hides, and poaching was common in parts of Florida during the Depression and World War II. Cowpens Key in the Florida Keys is thought to be so named because manatee were once penned in a small cove there as a food supply [from The West Indian Manatee in Florida, Copyright 1989, Florida Power & Lights Company].
Despite the foregoing, actual farming of manatee has either not been tried, or has been outlawed. Environmentalists are endangering manatee with misguided, anti-capitalistic statism.
The lack of property rights in sea cows and in so much of Florida’s waterways makes it difficult, if not impossible, to farm manatee.
Socialism is killing manatee. A more Libertarian approach will save the manatee by bringing it closer to everyone’s heart (deep inside everyone’s stomach).
Private property rights and farming keep chicken, cattle and many popular forms of restaurant fish off endangered species lists. Tuna is the “chicken of the sea” and the manatee is the “cow of the sea” and their cow-like qualities make manatee ideal for farming.
Farming will produce manatee meat of greater quality and flavor, and insure that manatee never face extinction.
Everyone should look forward to the day when there will be real manatee festivals, when manatee are included in all the seafood festivals, and when manatee will be as popular and abundant as other farmed seafood, meats, fruits and vegetables.
As the bumper sticker says “I love manatee. They taste just like chicken.”
