To those who say it’s ‘just natural red tide’

It’s more than just “red tide,” a naturally-occurring microscopic alga that has been documented along Florida’s Gulf Coast since the 1840’s. Floridians are upset about the overall treatment of our environment.

Mainstream media tends to downplay the effect of dumping phosphorus-laden pollutants into our ecological water system. Water moves freely along the peninsula, carrying all its sickness and impurities, so what we do in one place affects another.

Here’s a video taken in a North Fort Myers canal, August 9, 2018 at 6:05 pm:

From the video’s post:

I took a stick, and flipped over one of these floating blobs… what lies within looks like it is straight out of a septic tank, and smells like it too. Maybe worse. Like an outhouse in the sun.

There are hundreds and hundreds of these blobs. And that’s just MY canal

Completely grossed out even more now. Nothing can live in this.

Politicians helped slash environmental regulations while getting an applause from conned Floridians who were happy with “less government.” Those eliminations only helped huge corporations while hurting Floridians. The same rich, greedy Transplants that Florida Natives despise reaped all the benefits of the cultural warfare against environmentalists.

Real Floridians care about their water, their lakes, their springs, their beaches… we care, and that’s a great thing. Don’t be ashamed to love Florida and the planet we live on. Let’s work together, educate ourselves, and start fixing things.

Many politicians, Democrats and Republicans, are to blame for the current water and climate crisis, but blaming people doesn’t help. We’ve already caught and exposed them (which is important too), but nothing changes as a result of that. They just don’t care. “So what, you caught us,” is the attitude they exude with impunity. Just vote them out and try a new round of fresh possibilities.

Work with local government in your county and city to make agreements to preserve Florida forever. The EPA isn’t going to save us, but they can certainly help fund our projects and actualize our goals if we start voting in the right people. Until then, make every effort you can to inform others of the reality of our situation. Do what you can to treat our planet with respect.

As we learn new things, we should be eager to admit it. As we see others learning, we should not judge them for the lies they once believed. While it’s easy to ridicule the victims of propaganda, we promise to be nice. Sorry if we insulted you before. We just get upset when our magical little peninsula is under attack. One Florida. One Love, everybody.

Dump Truck Full of Sand has an “Inedible” Warning

This Lee county dump truck full of sand working in Glades county reads “Inedible” on the side. “I mean seriously do they really need a warning not to eat the sand?” asks Raschell T., who took the photo. The answer is probably yes.

Also, here’s a “dumped dump truck…”

Reportedly, the driver just chained it up and drove it back to Miami. Some true hustle.

Let’s Make Florida Slightly Less Fucked Up

Let's Make Florida Slightly Less Fucked Up
“Let’s Make Florida Slightly Less Fucked Up.”

Dear Floridians (and everybody else),

Florida’s a fucked up place. From animal abusers to angry ex-cops to Zimmerman to horse fuckers, we have plenty of issues. WTF Florida is your source for these fucked up news articles, and we encourage hysterical laughter at the zany headlines coming out of the Gunshine State.

After the laughter comes tears. The victims of Florida’s insanity aren’t laughing (unless they’re truly demented, which happens sometimes). We have a responsibility to improve Florida as much as we can.

WTF Florida would like to state a new mission:

We are dedicated to becoming a Karma Neutral State.

We want Florida’s karmatic number to be perfectly balanced at zero. Laughing at other people’s misery brings negative karma. Doing fucked up shit brings negative karma. Helping people who have been fucked over by Florida’s insanity brings you positive karma. We are still going to make fun of everybody who shows up on this site, but we are also going to start getting more serious about fixing stupid shit.

From this point on, we will occasionally start petitions to bring about justice, and to fix things that are unfair or that defy morals. We encourage our readers to help, not only by signing and sharing these petitions, but to also create them yourselves and to contact your representatives when appropriate. Please contact us if you have an issue that is important to you.

Send us info about your non-profit group or activism group, and we will try to get you more views (if you don’t mind being associated with us). Use the Contact page and let us know what you’re about.

All big problems start small. You can make a difference today by doing little things. Give a homeless person a bottle of water. Ask a local school what supplies they need and gift them with what you can afford. Use your fucking turn signals. The list goes on.

Help us help our state.

Let’s work together for the greater good.

Let’s make Florida slightly less fucked up.

Floridians For Freedom

fff-smokey

Only the “Right Of Adults To Cannabis” amendment can secure your RIGHT to possess, cultivate, and use cannabis in a manner similar to your 2nd amendment right to “keep and bear arms” … think about that for a minute.

Whether you agree or disagree with Americans right to gun ownership, the strength of this protected right is clear and viewed my many as absolute. Floridians For Freedom​ believes adults right to whole plant cannabis should be comparable and hopes you agree. Full Story »

Florida Golfer Fights Off Alligator with Putter

NORTH FORT MYERS, Fla. Every golfer needs a putter he can rely on — especially when an alligator decides to play through.

North Fort Myers resident Tony Aarts used his Cleveland Golf putter to subdue a 10-foot gator that attacked him Wednesday as he was approaching the fourth hole at Magnolia Landing Golf & Country Club.

“As I was walking about 5 to 6 feet away from the water I heard a splash, and as soon as I heard that splash I knew it was an alligator, and he got me,” Aarts said.

The gator grabbed Aarts by his right ankle. He wound up on his back and rolled into the nearby water hazard as they struggled.

“I remember having a club in my hand, and as soon as he had me in the water up to my waist, I started hitting him over the head,” Aarts said. Full Story »

Florida Man charged with kidnapping after mistaking a bike for his son’s.

A Lehigh Acres man is facing felony robbery and kidnapping charges after he took a teen’s bike and forced the youth to come to his home, claiming the bike was his son’s.

The Lee County Sheriff’s Office said that Christian Javier, 43, stopped a 15-year-old boy on Xelda Avenue in Lehigh Acres around 5:30 p.m. Monday.

Javier, driving a white Ford F150, forced the teen to stop and told him “That’s my son’s bike.”  He tossed the bike into his truck and forced the youth to ride with him.

The report said Javier then drove to his home. Once at the Crawford Avenue address, Javier asked his son if the bike was his. The son told his father that the bike was not his.

The report said that Javier then put the bike back in the truck and drove the teen and the bike to another spot where he told the youth to get out and threw the bike onto the road.

The teen’s 12-year-old brother, who had been riding a bike with him, followed the truck for a time and then rode home to tell his mother. The teen’s mother signed a desire to prosecute affidavit.

Javier, whom was arrested at his home Tuesday, remains in Lee County jail on $125,000 bond and is scheduled for a Feb. 27 court date.
