    Re: Obama government to regulate sport fishing

    I don't fish - I don't even eat fish.

    But I can't help but think, every time a new regulation comes around, that what's really going on is someone's pissed because they're losing grocery food-sales to those who fish or hunt.

    I'm not sure how much things cost, now, but I know quite a few people who fish for food - and their catch is the main staple of their diet.

    What does that translate to in food they might have bought from the store instead? I think it would cost more to purchase the said amount of fish from a store rather than catch it yourself - even including tackle, license, etc etc.

    Of course, I'm just an outsider speculating, but I think part of the 'anti' crowd is populated with corporate hounds looking out for their actuarial dollar.
    A screaming comes across the sky.
    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    Read the reports of people that knew him when he got his adjunct position handed to him as a lecturer or during his stint in Illinois state politics. They will tell you...it's "he's just that stupid." Its actually quite what Joe Biden said, he is a clean, articulate, well spoken black man. Thats it...thats his qualifications. He can read a speech like nobody's business. Leadership skills? Nah...its obvious that the kids are in charge of the country and there IS no leadership.

    Closing a fishery for one species (like the snapper closing)does horrible things.. It massively increases one part of the food chain annihilating the lower parts of the chain and overfeeds that above it... what happens then is the "protected" species population soars temporarily, it's food species are wiped out.. It's predators expand first then the "protected" species starves as it's food source nears extinction, followed by it's hyper-inflated predator population... the entire system then crashes...
    I haven't endorsed closing a fishery for one species. Nor has Obama's government as far as I know.

    AGAIN this NOT about saving poor little fishies!
    Right, it's about socialism or black helicopters or something.

    I don't deny it requires action, but like I said they are NOT concerned about that, if they were you would see a comprehensive ADJUSTMENT to creel and size limits, which are historically, and undeniably effective. It does NOT require UN Governance!

    Then you simply have not been paying attention,. I don't blame you for that. You and MANY other Americans are being PURPOSEFULLY misinformed, and under-informed.

    See "Snapper Closures". This is EXACTLY what WON'T work and IS NOT working now.. like I said ask THE ONES who work there!

    NOT SOCIALISM (that is an over simplification designed to wake up the ignorant).. It IS however MARXIST-PROGRESSIVISM and one-world governance (Clinton's words NOT MINE!).. Refer to 1920's, American socialists (liberals) and/or nazis (conservatives)..

    It's all about "conspiracy" (another M-P tactic) until the cattle-car leaves the station... I am sorry we allowed you to become indoctrinated.. I WAS TOO! You must save yourself and your children, we can not do it for you.

    I wish you and yours the best, and pray you discover the truth soon.

    No, not yet, but this regulation--that is being done behind closed doors--will enable the government to do exactly that.

    You're exactly right.

    Re: Obama government to regulate sport fishing

    Won't be long before I put in at Hudson Bay and head out towards the Middle Grounds. I guarantee you I won't be 3 miles out before I cut my circle hooks off and put on J hooks. One red and 5 gag groupers? That sucks. Or has that reg's changed, yet again.

    That was "Bush government."


    Maybe I'll practice a little "fillet and release."

    Who is talking about the UN?

    The UN is not going to bother sport fishermen.

    Then you simply have not been paying attention,. I don't blame you for that. You and MANY other Americans are being PURPOSEFULLY misinformed, and under-informed.
    Then post a link that shows it.
