    Got this in a email. Dont know if its true so i did a search. Can't find the exact story but i did find plenty. I think it's coming.

    Here is the email



    Here comes Cass Sustein........the Czar for the Department of the Interior, which controls Federal Dept. of Fisheries and Wildlife.

    You know, this is the guy that published that hunting should be outlawed and animals given rights to sue in the court systems.

    F'n bozo.


    IRVINE, Calif. USA - October 5, 2009 - A recently published administration document outlines a structure that could result in closures of sport fishing in salt and freshwater areas across America.

    The White House created an Interagency Oceans Policy Task Force in June and gave them only 90 days to develop a comprehensive federal policy for all U.S. coastal, ocean and Great Lakes waters. Under the guise of 'protecting' these areas, the current second phase of the Task Force direction is to develop zoning which may permanently close vast areas of fishing waters nationwide. This is to be completed by December 9, 2009.

    Dave Pfeiffer, President of Shimano American Corporation explained, "In spite of extensive submissions from the recreational fishing community to the Task Force in person and in writing, they failed to include any mention of the over one million jobs or the 6o million anglers which may be affected by the new policies coast to coast. Input from the environmental groups who want to put us off the water was adopted into the report verbatim - the key points we submitted as an industry were ignored."

    Recreational fishing generates a $125 billion annual economy in the United States and supports jobs in every state according to government figures. Through the Sport Fish Restoration program, anglers have provided more than $5 billion through excise taxes on fishing tackle to fishery conservation and education for decades.

    In addition to the economic aspects, anglers lead the nation in volunteer conservation efforts on behalf of improving fish habitat, water quality and related environmental areas.

    "There was no mention of the fishery conservation efforts which anglers have led for over 50 years in every state - an environmental success story that has no equal in the world", said Phil Morlock, Director, Environmental Affairs for Shimano. "The Task Force did not make any distinction between the dramatic differences between harmful commercial fishing harvest methods and recreational fishing, even though we spelled it out for them in detail."

    Claiming to be the result of a public consultation process the report states, "Having considered a broad range of public comments, this report reflects the requests and concerns of all interested parties."

    The original White House memo and not surprisingly the Task Force report contains multiple references to developing a national policy where Great Lakes and coastal regions are managed, "consistent with international law, including customary international law as reflected in the 1982 United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea" - a 300-page treaty the U.S. has never ratified.

    "We question what implications there will be for state authority and jurisdiction in the Great Lakes and coastal regions if the U.S. adopts the U.N. Treaty," said Pfeiffer.

    The report makes it clear that future authority for implementing the policy for coastal and inland waters will fall under White House jurisdiction with a new National Ocean Council comprised of over 20 federal agencies at Cabinet Secretary or Deputy Secretary level. No reference to Congressional jurisdiction is indicated.

    "This significant change in U.S. policy direction is the result of a 90-day fire drill process as ordered by the President that, not surprisingly, lacks balance, clarity and quality in the end product," said Morlock. "People who simply want to take their kids fishing on public waters deserve better from their government," he added.

    Shimano is joining with other members of the recreational fishing industry to urge anglers to contact their members of Congress and the administration to request this process be required to adopt the economic, conservation and social contributions of recreational fishing as key elements of the policy. It is critical that we ensure Congressional oversight and state jurisdiction and management continues.

    E-letters can be sent to the administration and members of Congress by visiting KeepAmericaFishing.org. The future of fishing is in your hands

    Ban Fishing? This will kill the economy further. Decrease tax revenue. Cause more unemployment.

    I suppose that the government thinks we all sit at home and stare at the boob tube tuned to the only channel left.... the government brainwash channel. I dunno about anyone else, but i guess i will be an outlaw, because if i want to hunt and fish , I AM GOING TO DO SO, with or without the blessing of the almighty government. I am not going to take this sh!t any longer. I am sick and tired of all the new proposals of this current administration. Heck the darn government can't even run a car giveaway program without loosing money, how in the heck can they do anything? Just a bunch of thieves, liars and bozo's in washington.



    I'm so mad i can't think of anything to say!

    After some more thought this actually may be good. Since the Democrats are a bunch of sharks in essence they would be banning themselves. :D

    Sunstein needs to go, NOW! Him and Holdren both. They are much worse than Van Jones ever was or will be. Sunstein just wants to use regulations, taxes, and fees to "nudge" us into making the "proper" choices because he thinks that we can't think on our own. Well, he might have a point with that. 53% of the voters in November were unable to think for themselves:rolleyes::rolleyes: You know, I'd like to "nudge" my foot straight up Sunstein's a**!!!:mad::mad::mad::mad:

    Uh oh, am I on a DHS list now?:rolleyes::rolleyes:

    Looks like Ginsberg is having health problems. And Barry has already said he's grooming Sunstein to be his next appointee to SCOTUS. Think about that one for a minute:mad::mad::mad::mad::mad:

    I suspect none of these people are aware - if they even care - of the plunge in Pittman/Rodman revenues resulting from this proposed pogrom. Or the consequences of enforcing their ban, FTM... Like prohibition all over again.... >MW

    Destruction of the economy is the focus of everything this administration does. I suspect that with the destruction of the economy poaching will be the new sports economy. I think the near future will not be good for game wardens. With the Black Bears in S. La. a H. S. Auditorium was filled to standing room only and over 150 people spoke out against the Black Bear Habitat. 6 speakers from LSU supported it. The Feds on the stage were bored. Guess what happened. Washington has decided that it is going to do what it will do, the people be damned. This administration is taking up where the Clinton admin. left off and they are better prepared and more committed to the destruction of America.

    At least it's a better reason than the last weirdo nutjob that proposed a ban on fishing. He said he had proof that hooking a fish was inhumane and actually hurt the fishes. Let's see, I think he was from ugh, California.
