Every one of us should keep in the back of our minds just who exactly is behind this in S. Florida. It has been pointed out before that this is obviously NOT about saving the Everglades, since this law will do nothing to that end, and does not even address the REAL invasive species which have already devastated what is left of our beloved National Park.

Just look who is behind this: Besides HSUS and PETA (whose motivation is obvious), we also have a variety of s. Florida politicians as well as the Water Management District. Is it a coincidence that these same folks have been stubbornly resisting the changes in water flow and use that would REALLY help restore the Everglades to some semblance of its former glory?

It seems to me that the pythons form a perfect "fall guy" that serves not only to distract attention from real glades restoration, but siphon away money and resources from that project as well. Or am I just paranoid?
