An Example Of The Good

Can you imagine the outcry here if something similar was done that impacted certain businesses and crazy's who scream bat shit crazy crap about government intrusion or what ever else they dream up.

Costa Rica is a leader in Eco-Tourism. This decree signed yesterday banning shark finning, as well as the importation and transportation of shark fins is just huge.

At 10 a.m. Wednesday morning, President Laura Chinchilla, flanked by Environment Minister René Castro and noted conservationist and billionaire owner of the Virgin Group, Richard Branson, signed a presidential decree that bans the practice of shark finning, as well as the importation and transportation of shark fins.

    1. I've stopped there so many times. There's another place east of Dinosaur as well. The town is a bit interesting and I sure wouldn't want to see a casino there or in Hayden. There's one going somewhere as there are $ $ going round in peoples heads like a slot machine on steroids.
