I have been very distraught about the Gulf and
the wildlife and the sand but there is clearly
child endangerment going on in Destin.

I am posting this so people will see just how
ignorant people are and how desperate they are
to buy the propoganda of "Come on in, the water's fine".

We have dolphins dying and wildlife dying and stupid
parents allowing children to swim inhttp://www.youtube.com/...

poisoned waters.  We need to spread this loud and clear
that this junk is not seaweed or kelp or anything natural.
The disbersements are not safe.  They are compared to agent orange according to a Tampa research finding.
This is petroleum.
Why are those beaches open?
Why is the Coast Guard not shutting down the beach?
I do not know how to post the U tube video except by link
so please watch this child cry in horror of this gooey
poison attached to her body and Mommie Dearest telling her
to get it off.  What a moran !

I hope and pray that everyone calls HRS and complains about
child endangerment with these beaches.  HRS is what Florida
calls their Dept. of Children services.

I suggest we also call HHS and the Governor's office.
This is beyond the pale and it angers me beyond belief.
The reporter also was not wearing footwear.

Make the call.  Do something.  Why don't Mama just bathe her kid in a tub of kerosene?  If one must be in the water,
there are pools.
This is precisely why we need a patrol on the beach, even the National Guard to guard people against going in the water and poisioning themselves and their kids.
The kids do not have a choice and the parents should know better.
Someone should be out there with a bullhorn if nothing else.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
