SeaWorld Orlando is expected to announce today what park officials call the biggest expansion in the resort's history, with three new attractions to be built over the next two years. New attractions include new sea turtle and manatee habitat, a 3-D, 360-degree movie, Antarctica themed area and a new area in Discovery Cove.

I guess they decided they needed the expansion with all those tourists from Missouri and Illinois coming to Orlando to spend their welfare checks.

If they needed expansion wouldn't it have already been built?

Will the whales be forced into building the new attractions or is Sea World planning on paying human workers to build them?

I think they'd probably opt for human labor, just as a political move in light of the recent lawsuit. Not sure whether or not the labor will be paid for, but that's no longer PETA's concern.

Maybe SeaWorld should hire the Missouri welfare folks that are in town?

If my tax dollars are indirectly funding this, then I should be able to pick the movie in the 3-D theater. It's only fair.
