But I hope it doesn't pass.
    That's just it, I dont see any new proposed legislation.

    Re: Obama government to regulate sport fishing

    I am an avid hunter and fisherman.

    I didn't believe the "Obama's coming to take your guns" crowd way back when, and go out and buy up all the ammunition, and I was right.

    I don't think the mean old "socialist, muslim, black-racist, Kenyan" is coming for my fishing rod either.

    Is this some of that "fear" tactic the GOP was teaching last week from their marketing playbook?

    The words out man.

    Get a new strategy. Don't think this one's gonna work anymore now that the cat is officially out of the bag.

    Just sayin'....

    Re: Obama government to regulate sport fishing

    I've never fished in my life, and I probably never will because its a boring-ass waste of time. Why should I care?

    See, someone could easily make that argument ... I guess ...

    I don't know why I'm posting this.

    very interesting, but i didn't see ANYTHING specific in this op-ed that tells us what exactly is going to happen.

    and interestingly enough, the word SOME was left out of your quote? hmmm....

    The Obama administration will accept no more public input for a federal strategy that could prohibit U.S. citizens from fishing some of the nation's oceans, coastal areas, Great Lakes, and even inland waters.

    You wouldn't happen to be a "gamer" would you?

    My kids are "gamers." Love to play computer video games.

    They don't like fishing with me either. They say it's a boring ass waste of time as well.

    Then they retire to their bedroom's 24/7 and sit in front of a computer monitor, hypnotized into a computer screen with some kinda "controller" in their hand. Scary.

    Point. It's very unique as to what people consider to be boring. Curling. Golf. Computer games. Fishing. Soccor. Hunting.

    I find fishing to be an awesome pastime and boring is never in the equation the way I roll.

    As a "gamer", I feel compelled to speak up.

    I also find fishing a boring pursuit, I find hunting (except for rare kinds) a sissy sport, golf to be the last vestige of people who WANT to seem athletic but cant anymore, and soccer to be far too regimented.

    It might also interest you to know I practice archery (Albeit at the beginner level currently), I play regular games of murderball (Not the "we use rubber balls" kind, the "there are fewer rules than players on a team" kind), and I full contact spar on a regular basis, I'm quite proficient with a spear at this point.

    Your Constitutional right to fish?

    By the way, this story is bull**** anyway. It's the latest in a long, long line of false, distorted stories the rightwing falls for every time. Yet they never seem to learn from the experience and they just go on to the next one.

    Right on. I also shoot my compound bow on a regular basis. I also agree with your golf analysis. I don't know where you hunt but I assure you there are no sissies in my deer camp. I don't understand soccor nor do I care. Nascar is 90% boring as watching paint dry (but that 10% keeps me tuned in.) I don't spar anymore but I wish I could (older age is a bitch.)

    However, from my personal perspective, nothing I have witnessed compares on the boring scale as high as gaming does. So I can understand how somebody else might consider fishing to be boring, even if I can't understand their reasoning. The gamer would probably disagree with my assessment of their pastime as well.

    But hey, some people get their rocks off sitting in a rocking chair reading a romance novel. I suppose we all have our selective boredoms.
