The STUPIDITY of govt (Florida) ---> Department of Environmental Protection Proposes to Close 53 State Parks
Florida Park Service

In what has become an annual exercise, the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) along with other agencies, yesterday presented to the Legislature reductions they would make if ordered to reduce their budgets by 15%. In a year when the state faces a nearly $4B shortfall, this is likely to be more than just an exercise; and with the high proportion of freshman members, there is less familiarity than past years with the importance of Floridaís environmental programs.

Part of DEPís proposal last year, which was not adopted, was to close some parks to public access to result in expense savings. This year, this proposal includes an unprecedented 53 state parks which garner the least attendance and do not have camping, despite being economic engines in some of Floridaís smallest and most rural communities.

Personal Comment:

The stupidity of this... one of the parks for example, Peacock Springs, is a super popular cave diving site. It is not staffed and there is an "Iron Ranger" (a place for people to self drop payment in a metal lock box) and costs like nothing for the State to Maintain. Most of the "maintenance" is handled by US... the people that go there and keep it clean...

Now these assholes propose closing the park...

UNREAL..... how about cutting useless expenses like locking up people for smoking weed and other stupid shit... cut the costs of jailing people... NOOOOOOOOOOO we can't have that... instead close the fucking park...

I am SOOOOOO tired of the STUPIDITY in govt...

I am very fucking pissed.

:(
