Is Miami On The Brink Of A Nuclear Disaster?

We have been made aware…

THE INTERNET POST

New reports indicate a Fukushima-style nuclear disaster is inevitable in the Miami area, and need to be investigated immediately.

Concerns over the possibility of a Fukushima-like nuclear meltdown event in the U.S. have been growing, with the most likely next disaster predicted in 2011 to be surprisingly close to Miami Florida, at the Turkey Point facility 20 miles east of Homestead.

According to a July 23rd NPR story, the Turkey Point facility was found to be (literally) in hot water, over its cooling system, which caused federal regulators to be so concerned, that they upped the nuclear plant’s cooling system allowable temperature to exceed the 100 degree limit for 10 days – up to 103 degrees if necessary. The plant has come close to 100 degrees, which should mandate an immediate shut down. But instead of exercising precaution, regulators simply increased their legal limit causing environmental groups in nearby Biscayne…

Photos of wild mares (& bison) on BLM’s contracted feedlot in Scott City, KS

This kind of killing is nothing short of pure evil.

Straight from the Horse's Heart

Yesterday it was about 97 degrees with no shade on this flat feedlot in Scott City, Kansas.  There may also be thunderstorms and lightning this week.   The BLM recently shipped almost 1,500 wild mares to this feedlot from the Teterville long term holding pasture in Kansas.  80 wild mares have died in a short period of time.  As you know, the BLM only invited CREDENTIALED PRESS on a tour of this facility.  The BLM did NOT invite representatives of any wild horse & burro advocacy groups, or members of the public.   However, the public (who cares) posted these photos and comments on the internet:

20 -30 horses in one pen beside bison.

No shelter, in small pens, with extremely hot temps.  It seems that some of the horses had no freezebrands or tags on their necks.

This is a lagoon for this feedlot.

Editorial: East Coast’s wild horse herd deserves protection

Straight from the Horse's Heart

by the Editorial Board of the Winston-Salem Journal

Tourists still cherish the sight of the horses.

Corolla Wild HorsesAs coastal wild horses live their untamed lives, they face challenges to their very existence. It’s time for our lawmakers to take action to preserve these natural wonders.

For hundreds of years, Spanish mustangs moved freely along the Outer Banks. In these days of heavy development, they roam around the northern Outer Banks town of Corolla, which only in the last several years has seen that development.

Tourists still cherish the sight of the horses. Several tour companies make money off them. But they are now threatened by overexposure to man and federal policies that leave them severely inbred, The News and Observer of Raleigh reported recently.

Some tourists, perhaps not accustomed to nature, have taken to trying to chase the horses down for photographs or to feed them foods…

“I’m not looking for someone who has everything, but someone who has time to spend with me more than anything.”

This lady has it right, and this is a beautifully written story of her struggle to be herself– to honor what she knew was right in her heart. If you love horses, you know this is true. And if you don’t believe they are cognizant, you should definitely read this.

Passing by a stall at the horse show today something caught my eye. I went back to check it out and found a girl sitting in her horses stall. It was such a I'm not looking for someone who has everything, but someone who has time to spend with me more than anything.beautiful picture, both literally and figuratively, that I ask to photograph her and now I am writing about it.

The image took me back in time over twenty five years and gave me a glimpse of a much younger me. Me, when I knew that my happiest moments were with my horse. Me, back when I believed that my horse also felt this way.

Fast forward to my early adult hood when I was told, through actions more than words, that horses didn’t really care…that horses were just horses and that if I imagined anything more,  it was all in my head.

So much of the other things I was learning from these people were true; they could train a…
