Rubio runs into Protesters

http://www.wpbf.com/news/rubio-tours-algae-area/40279850
<snip>
Rubio told reporters that what he saw during his tour was catastrophic and an ecological disaster.

Protesters held signs blaming "big sugar" for the bloom.

Rubio said that if he believed sugar was the only contributor he would do everything to stop it.


He said that before the problem can be fixed, several things need to happen:

-Convincing the Army Corps of Engineers to completely stop the flow of water for a short period of time to flush everything out

- Getting the governor to ask for an emergency declaration from the president

- Getting the CDC to access the long-term health risks

4. Buy the land!!

There was a contract to buy the land needed south of the lake.The Republican state legislature did not fund the purchase and let the contract expire.This was after voters passed a constitutional ammendment to fund conservation land purchases. Now Prick Scott wants to blame the President and funnel water to holding areas north,east and west. Paying Big Sugar to temporarily store the water.
I will attend the beach rally in Stuart tomorrow morning. This is a rare nonpartisan issue.( Unless you are Scott or Rubio who have been forced to respond to the outcry and have tried to make this partisan.) No one is buying that bridge.

6. I pity the people of Stuart when the new rail line is built, it's going to kill traffic. Of course

Scott couldn't care less. My brother lives in Stuart and is moving to Palm City as soon as he can.

Big sugar owns ReTHUGs - Rubio won't dump the Cuban RW expats.

5. Typical Little Marco, I can be what you want to pay me ... yet

Florida Sugar owns millions of acres by Lake Okeechobee. Millions of tons of nitrogen run off into the lake, When the level gets too high they open the flood gates to the St Lucie River and send it downstream.

9. btw don't EVER buy Bacardi products

 

5 years ago and still happening...one of the worst companies in the world?

http://www.ratb.org.uk/campaigns/boycott-bacardi
.....Bacardi Rum Corporation has launched an advertising campaign, based on a ‘macho’, untameable image and posing as victims of the Cuba’s socialist revolution. In fact, Bacardi are the perpetrators of violence and injustice, not the victims.

For 55 years, Bacardi has backed illegal and violent attacks against the Cuban Revolution, including funding the Cuban-American National Foundation, a right-wing Miami-based exile organisation involved in terrorism against Cuba. During this time, more than 3,400 Cubans have been killed by terrorism and sabotage. Many of these actions funded by this corporation.

Bacardi’s lawyers helped draft the US Helms-Burton Act, which extends the US blockade of Cuba to all countries, in breach of international trade laws. Bacardi served as a conduit for funds from the CIA to mercenaries in Nicaragua, El Salvador and Angola and to saboteurs in Cuba.
