Obama Once Again Doesn't Care What We The People Think About Fishing Freedom

It all started here this morning:
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.
I had to read that 3 times before it sank in…and then I did a little research. Guess what old Barack (I’ve never had a fishing rod in my hand a day in my life) Obama has been up to since last year? Plotting a Federal takeover of all our bodies of water (freshwater…saltwater…doesn’t matter), in an effort to set up MORE bureaucracies and circumvent the rights of the States to determine fair use and access rules amongst themselves based on the local interests of everyone involved.
If he was out to ban recreational fishing this piece would be easy enough to write; scream a little, stomp my feet, vow he’ll have to pry my fishing rod from my cold dead hands, etc…and be done with it. Problem is, this is much darker and more corrupt than that.
The White House plan would establish 9 regional planning bodies (bureaucracies) whose job would be to bring “Federal, State, and Tribal Partners together” to look for ways to “decrease user conflicts; improve planning and regulatory efficiencies and decrease their associated costs and delays; and preserve critical ecosystem function and services.”
It should come as no surprise that the Administration is no longer accepting comments or input from the public (though you should click through to see some of the doozies that WERE accepted), and it should come as no surprise that a member of Obama’s Administration (Jane Lubchenco, NOAA administrator) has some interesting ties with a couple private charities and goofy greenie groups whose interests will be very well served by a Federal takeover of our various bodies of water:
While she possesses impressive academic and professional credentials as a marine biologist, she also has close ties to those who produced the November document. For example, she was a trustee of the Environmental Defense Fund, and served on the Pew Oceans Commission.”
More below the “who needs jobs and successful multi-billion dollar industries anymore, anyway?” fold…

More info here, and a call for some Asian Carp-killing love here. Don’t miss the policy pdf here if you really want your head to explode. Read between the lines folks…this will lock down oil exploration faster and farther than the moratorium Congress JUST let expire ever did, and allows the greenies to set policy for fishing AND boating (at the expense of millions of jobs and billions of boating and fishing industry dollars).
ALWAYS worry when you read this from Obama’s people: “The planning process would be fully transparent and participatory.” and don’t forget to laugh out loud when you follow up with this timeless classic: “Places Science-Based Information at the Heart of Decision-Making. Scientific data, information and knowledge, as well as relevant traditional knowledge, will be the underpinning of the regionally developed plans.”
How’s that “settled” climate change science mumbo jumbo working out again?                                                                                                                                                              My fishing and hunting buddy(Gramps) used to tell me stories of how my great grandfather used have to take carp from the Tzars waters when he was a young man. There was no fishing and hunting unless the Tzar said it was OK. That is one of the main reasons why Gramps felt it was so important to enjoy that freedom to fish here in America. These waters and the fish in them are ours not the govenments. We the people had to be good stuards of the land and waters God has intrusted us with. But it is common knowlege that sport fishing has no negative impact on fish populations. In fact sport fishing and the industries that surround it have had a possative impact on the fishing. It was the tax $ that bought the lands,cleaned up the waterways and planed the fish in those waterways. But to the Obama admin we don't matter to them. We are here to serve them not they serve us in their minds. I have been fishing my hole life and so does my wife and two sons. Fishing and hunting is a part of our lives and our birthright as an American. Good luck stopping me from my hunting and fishing. I put in my time to help clean up the messes I didn't make so that I and my kids would have trout running in the rivers again. We need to pray for this country and pray hard because Obama is becoming a true enemy of the state when he takes away the rights of me and my state for the rights of fish.


  1. This Administration Along with The Left Wing is Going to Apparently DO All It Can Before NOVEMBER To Try And Control All Aspects of Citizens Freedoms and Rights! Every Day Something Else That CHIPS Away at Constitution and States Rights. As Far as Transparentsy I Beleive They Have Played That CARD and Citizens Will Not Fall For that Again! This Socialist Administration Would Love to Get Into OUR Houses and Private Life. Look At Nobamas Tunnel Vision Regarding Health Care. Majority of Citizens Want NOTHING to Do With It and Yet He Has NO Other Priority Other Than This Massive Economy Killing Bill. Jobs Are NOT His Priority and NEVER Has Been. How Can You Control Citizens When They Are NOT Dependant on Government! Answer You CANT and CONTROL Is Their Objective!

  2. i missed the part where their banning fishing. Where exactly is that part?

  3. Yeah well here is what the Press Secretary said...

    "You had input. The American people have input every four years, and that’s the way our system is set up."

    However, that was Dana Perino and the President was Bush so it must be acceptable.

    Of course, Perino also said "We did not have a terrorist attack on our country during President Bush's term..."

  4. What are you talking about Grung?

  5. Quite simple, anonymous. Obama is President shut up and wait until 2012 when you get your vote and after you lose in 2012 shut up and wait till 2016. If it was good enough for Bush it's good enough for Obama...

  6. Grung has been in Grandpa's "cough medicine" again ....

  7. Tough "Guy" Anonymous... Clearly you're nothing more than a coward grow a spine internet hero...
