I have no problem with Protecting the Turtles by putting up a fence. Mr. Hoekstra get over it and put your fighting spirit like getting our troops out of a dead end war. Like fighting hunger & poverty here at home.
Remember someone has to put up the fence so we are paying someone money which helps the economy as well. Speaking of taxes - Helloo most don't have a clue how expensive it is to live in other states or countries. The fence money is not going to make or break us. The tax hike is not going to make or break us.

Protecting wildlife and saving our environment is not something we can afford to do only "when times are good." It may be costly or inconvenient but we need to work on environmental issues now.

Pete is being a fiscal responsible member of our nation. Go to Petersreport.blogspot.com and read how a CMU professor is getting a $60,000+ paycheck to work one day a week at CMU teaching Political Science. He is also running for office. This State is backward and we need to cut the budget big time to get rid of the corrupt practices of the Teachers union and State Govt.
