i`m not talking about suicide rate by occupation. your occupation is your choice. you cannot choose which ethnicity or race you will be born into.
Native Americans (American Indians) are the racial/ethnic group with the highest overall suicide rate, but tribal differences exist.
notice the source at the bottom.
This douche got up at 2 am in the morning and decided to take a swim in a creek. Which he knows so much about. He obviously knows alot about alligators, seeing as how he complains about them...
Not such a bright idea to swim at 2 in the morning...
The guy`s a "KEEYUL THAT THAR KRITTER" type of guy.
Yes but should it pay taxes on the casino thats run on alternate fuel?
Yeah indians still have it good. Atleast the ones that know where to be. The Indian Micosukee casino is the largest casino in florida (last time I remembered) and the Indian population there isn`t that big.
My freind just said that but it`s not how it works. The gator will see any prey as food naturally, when it kills any other animal its fine but human? nah. We kill it back for being "bad". Should we kill all gators because they have the potential to kill humans? Do we really think we can control nature this way? We can control nature once we understand it, or at least confine these (other) animals better..
Now, Im glad this kid didn`t lose his life, really, I dont think he should have died, but I hope this is taken as a lesson. One that should have been obvious in Florida.
Just ignore him. He hasnt got a clue about half the crap he spouts.
As for the killing of the Gator..well think about it. Whilst the kid was at fault for swimming there in the first place, the last thing you want is the Gator thinking humans = food, which will be the case. Predatory animals that attack humans once, genrally will do it again given the chanceNot nice and I`m not saying it`s right but I`d rather see a dead Gator than a dead kid cos it moved into someones back yard!
And from what I`ve read, this algae is much more expensive to grow. So that`s still a big problem. We`re still forgetting that 80% of the combustion in octane fuel is still being unused... lotsa energy... think people think...
native americans do not have it all good. why do you think they have the highest suicide rate in america? because they`re so happy they don`t have to pay taxes?? seriously, would you be happy if someone came in and took all your land and stuck you all in a reserve like you were a herd of animals. and said oh, to make up for it you don`t have to pay taxes. that should make it all better huh?
next time just stfu.
Actually, you are very wrong about ethanol being the future of gasoline. If you read Time Magazine, you`ll find out that about 80% of the energy released from gasoline combustion is not used, and the reformatting of engines to use ethanol is costly and not very efficient. Also, no matter what, the formula of a combustion reaction will always produce CO2, meaning there will always be the release of Carbon Dioxide. And most people currently look at corn for their source of ethanol.
So back to the roaming part, other problems can occur with the gator such as it going to a nearby road and possibly causing accidents. Its standard procedure to kill it if it has attacked someone. Gators are overpopulated outside the everglades.
Casino`s aren`t meant for just NA`s. Casino`s will willingly take money from gamblers of any ethnicity.
Link says 10x better than maize. National Geographic says Cellueth 36x more efficient than maize according to the amount of input energy vs output energy. Thus CE > Jatropha.
On the gator, something to do with land and use being able to dominate.You: Indians shouldn`t be taken over. More Wetlands for gators. Gator should live.Me: Indians have it pretty good. More land for development/agriculture for people. Gator killed just for the fact he bit someone`s arm off.
..well that`s the point, isn`t it? The profit goes towards maintaining a good life for those living on the reserves and keeping the casino itself running and upated. I`m not really sure about the whole Native American tax/profit/casino laws though, so I`ve not got much more to say than that.
Okay, sales tax, not that big a deal. & the money from the casino`s is legally to be used to benefit the life on the reserves. So I don`t see the whole big deal about that...
Ughh, didn`t this start out as a conversation about an alligator? How`d we get to Native Americans and alternative fuel? -sigh-
Misleading. They fail to state that the majority of casino`s are near small indian reserves. Its basically for profit
and its not jerofah, its jatropha
& don`t be stupid. Google has this tendency to disprove those myths we`re always hearing about. http://www.bizjournals.com/twincities/st...
And native americans aren`t complaining. They dont pay taxes and have all of those casino`s. What I wouldn`t do to be indian.
Winning the claim land part? When was the war against the alligators? We`ve got the technology, so we can just drive them out, yeah? Look how well that worked with the Native Americans. Whole cultures lost, now we`re going for the `how many species can we wipe out` record?
Second they should get more land but someone has to pay for it. Very few humans (sorry all you nice people out there) wont do something unless it promises money. That sugar plantation that is moving out sold its land to Florida. The owner wasnt like "hey lets let the gators live here."
I believe we should set out more land for wetlands but unfortunately I have no money to do so but what I do do is let the state know my opinion. I have signed several petitions and written letters to the legislature for better widlife programs.
Maybe yall should do the same instead of debating on here. I highly doubt the governor checks this website for public opinion.
*woot* my first IAM rant :-D .... oops I mean >-(
And those are 180k acres we need. There is a new plant that is seen as the best fuel alternative that so far is only grown in florida. Any loss of land will make space more competitive
Florida only bought back 180k acres. Which the sugar company still has six years to use.
Gators outside the reserve? You mean the fenced off, incredibly minuscule, human designated area where the wild animals are forced to stay because we continue to use their territories to build houses and set up businesses? Oh, how silly of me, that gator must have simply missed the memo about staying inside those damned reserves.
Everglades are gaining land in 6 years when sugar cane company, along with people who are employed there, have to leave.
Who told the moron to take a swim in an /empty/ /canal/ in /Florida/? His lack of pure common sense cost the gator its life.
"Gators have there own land in the Everglades"
Oh, so they`re just banned to one spot and expected to stay there? It`s perfectly okay that the sugar cane company plows through and destroys that bit of land, though. The gators still have to stay RIGHT THERE no matter WHAT happens.
Anyway, it seems unfair to the animal to be destroyed after a human invades the animal`s territory first. He made a VERY foolish decision by swimming in any kind of open water down there. It`s GATOR COUNTRY. FLORIDA IS GATOR COUNTRY. SWIM IN THE POOL, NOT THE LAKE.
Are you seriously going to use college football rivalry as justification for shooting an innocent alligator? How absolutely pathetic.
He`s right handed.
Stemming of course from the UF-UM rivalry. Yes. Its that serious
