Florida Government Official Speaks Out Against Diversity

“Florida faces constant challenges from invasive pests and diseases that arrive through cargo, travelers’ luggage, air currents, and plant and animal agricultural products,” said Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam. “Enlisting the help of the public in the early detection of these pests and diseases is critical to containing and ultimately eradicating them in our state.”

The snails, researchers warn, are potentially dangerous to touch, in part because they can carry meningitis. Scientists have warned anyone who comes in contact with them to wash their hands thoroughly.
"They also carry a parasitic disease that can cause a lot of harm to humans and sometimes even death," Autumn Smith-Herron, director of the Institute for the Study of Invasive Species at Sam Houston State University, told NBC Houston affiliate KPRC.

Demographic Change Equals Political Change

Political activists admit that demographic change means political change, so are incumbent populations allowed to protect themselves from the type of political change that would exploit them at the expense of the invasive population?  Or, even if it were not to exploit them, just because they don't want their community to change, should they be allowed to defend themselves geo-politically from the kudzu?

Big Democratic donors are setting their sights on Texas amid expectations that it might be up for grabs as early as the 2016 US presidential election because of its rapidly changing demographics, potentially creating a Texas-sized problem for the Republican party.

Texas Quarantine?

Imagine you are a Texan.  You are watching the rest of the USA in the economic doldrums while your state is thriving.  You watch the diversity and entitlement basket case of California, your only competitor as biggest and most dominating state, going off the rails.

Then you hear that Californians are moving to your state.
More than 363,000 Californians moved to Texas over the past five years, helping the state grow more than twice as fast as the nation as a whole since 2000, census figures show
What voting patterns will these new species have?  Will they be able to blend into the native ecosystem? Remember our definitions:
Introduced species (also called "non-indigenous" or "non-native") adversely affect the habitats and bioregions they invade economically, environmentally, and/or ecologically.
Will they vote for the policies that will adversely affect the economic and ecological habitats of Texas?

The UK has never had rabies because of its quarantine.  Should Texans quarantine new ex-Californians from voting for a suitable period of time, until they have acclimated themselves to the Texas political and social ecosystem?

National Invasive Species Week

Please mark your calendars for events in Washington, DC and around the country.
State, federal and local and tribal officials meet with NGO's, industry and stakeholder groups addressing invasive species to examine laws, policies and creative approaches to prevent and reduce invasive species threats to our health, economy, environment and natural resources including special places. Attend events in the US Capitol and in Washington, DC or host your own event that explores local problems and solutions to invasive species.

How can you help?

We would suggest catch and release... back to native habitats
