Our entire government needs to be completely cleaned out, reduced in size and replenished with real people - not the Muppets!

This sent a message and actually stopped terrorism but in this world of PC / Political Correctness my dad's old methods are not allowed now sorry to say . Take care cause we care .

Russell Archambault April 16, 2014 at 10:43 pm
What Rhode Islanders Can Do to protect ourselves about zebras. WE MUST INTRODUCE LEGISLATION NOWRead More As of early 1993 (4), no zebra mussels have been found in Rhode Island waters. However, zebra mussels have rapidly expanded their range and are predicted to invade New England waters. Ultimately, zebra mussels will infest most regions of North America. They could threaten local water supplies and become a costly nuisance to boaters, anglers, and industries. It is possible to slow the spread of zebra mussels into New England waters by becoming aware of how these mussels disperse themselves through human activities. Boaters or anglers may inadvertently transport zebra mussels from infested freshwater bodies to noninfested lakes and rivers. In an effort to control zebra mussels from spreading to Rhode Island waters, take the following precautions after boating or fishing in infested waters: 1. INSPECT and CLEAN any zebra mussels and aquatic vegetation from the boat hull, trailer, anchor, anchor rope or chain, and motor. If you see any "hitchhiking" zebra mussels, scrape them off and discard in a trash can. 2. DRAIN all water from the boat and its components. Before leaving the infested area, drain bilge water, live wells, bait buckets, and engine cooling water. 3. DRY the boat, trailer, and equipment. Allow the boat and trailer to dry thoroughly in the sun before transporting to noninfested waters. If it is hot and dry, leaving the boat out of the water for two to four days will effectively kill the mussels. 4. LEAVE any live bait behind. Bait used in infested waters should not be transported to noninfested waters. Give the bait to someone headed out on the body of water you are leaving, or discard at the boat launch.

Tom you are obviously an internet TROLL! And Genius I never said she would be a GOOD Leader!!! IRead More simply stated she might have put a stop to or slowed what has happened to this country. Given the fact that she certainly was well aware of all the players in Washington DC. But this of course of my own opinion and I am a realist and understand that there are those that believe there is NOTHING WRONG with the state of this nation. Of course I might also believe those individuals are living in Egypt on Denial!!! (Hint: Read it fast it makes a funny kind of sense!) But again that would be MY belief. Shhhh Please don't tell anyone in the Government though that might disagree!!! Lest they send 5 fully armed Swat teams to my little spot in the world all of those Swat members being fully armed with the latest in Anti Terrorist weaponry to storm my little home that doesn't have any kind of a weapon unless you consider my 1.5 year old clownish French Bull dog some kind of evil canine??? LMFAO And after they kick in all my doors and windows all they will find is an old kitchen scale that measures food weight and calories!!!! OMG and you know it's the likes of individuals such as myself, middle-aged women that are most certainly the biggest threat to this Country!!!! But take away all the sarcasm and right here you will find a person who will die to protect my civil rights and those of my fellow American. Because I am one of those American's that when I see the someone's civil rights being violated by the Government, or Federal Law enforcement, or even local law enforcement officers. I will stand up and speak up for that person. And I will not shut up and just go away and mind my own business. Because I do believe and Know that to do NOTHING means I am freely agreeing to give up my own rights. And that is never going to happen!!! So YA I am a very proud 54 year old troublemaking military vet that is also a staunch supporter of the US Constitution and will commit civil disobedience making sure it is not blatantly violated in my presence. And there never is a bad day for a REVOLUTION!!!
