from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:
Every two to four years, sea turtles make the long journey to Florida beaches to lay their eggs in the warm sand, where they are sheltered by these various laws and regulatory edicts. Simply put, one cannot possess, disturb, mutilate, destroy, sell, transfer, molest, or harass marine turtles, nests or eggs. Protection is also afforded to marine turtle habitat.
In other words, there are absolutely no exceptions to taking the life of an unborn sea turtle.
Rush Limbaugh, whose humble abode is set on a South Florida beach, has spoken, or rather lamented, about these many restrictions, including a moratorium on outdoor lighting during the egg-laying season.
Every care and precaution is taken to protect the unborn turtles so they may survive. And all these laws and regulations were devised by leftist do-gooders. Fines and jail time may await you, should you engage in any of the aforementioned misdeeds. As much as a $10,000 fine and five years in the clink.
It’s a common misconception that we on the right don’t care about protecting wildlife – that this is strictly the purview of leftists, that they are the only ones who wish to save the planet and wildlife.
This couldn’t be further from the truth. We would just prefer a little consistency.
It seems that only where wildlife is concerned, the sanctity of life is sacred to the left.
