"The Obama administration will accept no more public input for a federal strategy that could prohibit U.S. citizens from fishing the nation's oceans, coastal areas, Great Lakes, and even inland waters."
Many have felt that the discussions were simply a ruse from the start. The very vocal, frog licking, tree hugger lobby stood solid to help candidate Obama win election, and now they've come to collect on environmental promises. These powerful "Big Green anti-use" organizations arm twisted the Ontario Canada govt. recently
"to end one of the best scientifically managed big game hunts in North America (spring bear), the results of their agenda had severe economic impacts on small family businesses and the tourism economy of communities across northern and central Ontario..."
They're now importing those same arm twisting "Big Green anti-use" tactics here in the U.S. to shut down the commercial and recreational fishing industries, which employ millions of people.
"As ESPN previously reported, WWF, Greenpeace, Defenders of Wildlife, Pew Environment Group and others produced a document entitled "Transition Green" shortly after Obama was elected in 2008. What has happened since suggests that the task force has been in lockstep with that position paper.
Then in late summer, just after he created the task force, these groups produced "Recommendations for the Adoption and Implementation of an Oceans, Coasts, and Great Lakes National Policy." This document makes repeated references to "overfishing," but doesn't once reference recreational angling, its importance, and its benefits, both to participants and the resource.
Additionally, some of these same organizations have revealed their anti-fishing bias by playing fast and loose with "facts," in attempts to ban tackle containing lead in the United States and Canada."
Obama can implement all of this radical, frog licking, tree hugger agenda with an executive order.
Give a man a fish, and you feed him one day, but teach him to fish and he feeds himself for life.
Guess which best describes the Obama administration?
