The National Parks are not Disney World!
They're talking about state parks, not national parks.....although national parks might be next......

Bad idea.

It's bad enough a lot of the parks have private vendors for rentals, concessions, etc. At a non-private vendor park a canoe rental is $5.30 for an hour. At the private vendor parks it's around $30 an hour.

These state parks are supposed to be for the public to enjoy, and many times people can't even do that because it's an arm and a leg just to do anything in them!

Thanks for your replies, this is going to be a huge battle. Please go to Jack's fanpage and let them know how you feel, it works. At 3pm the Phillips Phile on Real Radio 104.1 in Orlando (XM Ch. 152 for those of you nationwide) began shouting this from the rooftops, within hours hundreds of comments were up protesting this and it got so bad that they started taking down comments and couldn't keep up. By the end of the show, the official website of Jack Nicklaus' Golden Bear Club had to issue a statement regarding the opposition.

Done....looks like they've stopped taking down comments on his FB page....I took the liberty of sharing this issue on mine, I'm sure my friends will take notice....actually, judging from the comment #s I can see on the FB tab, they've started already.

It was a big hit and I was on the news 3 times lol. Oh and we may have lost the battles for teacher merit pay, laid off workers, business tax cuts, public school funding, etc, etc, but there is good news:Smoke it if you got a scrip. Bill filed to legalize pot – Central Florida Political Pulse – Orlando Sentinel. Wooo hooo, after they destroy this state I'll need medical marijuana to deal with the depression and migraines.

Better add reducing the amount of time you can draw unemployment, I just heard that on Channel 27.
And youre right about needing medical marijuana.....I cant believe all this crap is happening here.
