    Just when I think this administration can't be any more stupid, dictatorial, and anti-freedom...they are considering enacting regulations which may ban fishing on much of the US waters--even inland!

    I guess catching a freedom-averse statist is about like catching a catfish: They both are bottom-feeders, they ingest great amounts of filth, and stink bait seems to attract them.

    Is it 2012 yet? Can we recall this dictator?

    "The Obama administration will accept no more public input. . ."

    The opening sentence of the article says it all. Obama doesn't care about what we the people want. He doesn't realize his job description is to be a public servant, not the other way around.

    When the POTUS doesn't care about public input, it's time for him to get booted from office.

    All I can say is, good luck, Barry.

    I live in Maryland on the Chesapeake Bay. Outside of the Florida Keys, the Chesapeake is the best and most popular fishing grounds in the country. In addition, the waters off Ocean City are world reknowned for their sportfishing waters. Good luck getting people here to stop fishing.

    Good luck getting me and my family to stop fishing. Mao-bama can have my fishing rod when he pries it from my cold, dead fingers.

    Overheard on the House floor.
    Any guesses of which member of Congess has such delicate sensibilities?

    No, it was a man that found fishing "ghastly" when he tried it once.
    Now which congressman would that be?

    Its all Thomas Jefferson's fault - he saw no need to add fishing to the second amendment! :smilewinkgrin:

    Well, everyone knows that unemployment is not nearly high enough yet here in Michigan.

    Banning recreational fishing my be just what Obama needs to get our unemployment rate to 20%.

    Based on his other actions to date that must be his goal.

    The congressman who said he found fishing "ghastly" wasn't Nancy Pelosi or Barney Frank.
    It was RonPaul:laugh:

    Was this in an interview, book, article? Got a link? Just curious about the context in which it was brought up.

    Thanks.

    Then Paul must be a vegetarian or a blatant hypocrite. Which means he is par for the course as far as politicians go.

    Bottom trawling should be banned because it destroys everything on the ocean floor.
