Building Sandcastles Illegal On Florida Beaches

Put your plastic spade and bucket away if you’re heading to the beach in Florida. No digging means no sandcastle building. The Raw Story reports:

Ever go to the beach and not think of slapping together a sand castle? And who doesn’t enjoy the feeling of wet, warm sand between her toes?

According to federal authorities who recently intercepted an oil-hunting reporter on a Florida beach, those activities have been deemed “illegal.”

The officers’ legal revelation (which is not actually true) came as something of a surprise to Dan Thomas, reporter for WEAR ABC 3 in Pensacola, Florida, who was visiting the Gulf Islands National Seashore for a special report.

    this is the natural consequence of gubmint’s tendency towards expansionism, coupled with environmentalist laws.

    careful what you wish for. cuz when the gubmint regulates/bans/controls A, it’s not long before they apply the same rules to B, C, D, E and et cetera.

    And granting the gubmint the authority to enforce property rights and bidness contracts is no less slippery a slope.

    Actually it is the natural consequence of allowing the Blessed Free Market, in this case BP, to buy out the gubmint and make it nothing more than a taxpayer funded security force used to cover up the mess made by a private company.

    This is the natural consequence of a permissive attitude toward law enforcement…it winds up letting cops just make shit up and redefine any act as criminal so they can justify harassment and intimidation. Go left…fight the power.

          Me and a few colleagues of mine decided to create a society that fully embraces the radical ideologies of both leftism and rightism governments. Everything worked out fine because they all killed each other. Shit solves itself. wakre up.
