Why not just shoot them? I can't imagine the croc being very happy about being dizzy all the time. More over how does this stop them from wondering in to town?

I don't see the need to mod this -1. I'm from Florida, and "Why not just shoot them?" was the first thing that popped into my head too until I realized that they were really talking about crocs and not alligators - which unfortunately most people don't realize are very different. There alligator population in Florida is in the millions, but there are only a few thousand crocs. Anyway, I thought it was a valid question that deserved a proper answer, not a "fuck you".

50% in taxes is about $60K to me. That sounds like extremely expensive heathcare. I already have healthcare for everyone in my household that costs me about $4500/yr. I prefer not to buy coverage for your family as well, which is what it sounds like you are proposing. No thanks, I'd rather keep the extra money and put it in my 401K like I do now.

An adequate bootstrap is a contradiction in terms.
