B/s obama is a joke has already taken banks next 6th biggest money maker in us healthcare and you think he will listen. Just like he is listening to us on healthcare. Man is a puppet for a bigger cause for the dem they can control his dumb ass then control us in a box and tell us what to do. come on and be serious these people dont care about us just the almighty dollar and the dollar has been winning for centuries.
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.
Thats because he has a perfect board and knows what the people need. He has no reason to listen to the people or what they want. He is the Messiah! Dont question him.:eek:

Hands up to snag recreational fishing funding
Millions of dollars in Community trust funds are now available to fund projects that improve
recreational fishing, NSW Primary Industries Minister, Steve Whan, said today.
Minister Whan said the NSW Recreational Fishing Trust is a chance for recreational fishing
groups, individual anglers, councils and other community organisations to improve recreational
fishing in their local areas.
“Fishing is one of the most popular recreational activities in NSW, with around one million people
dropping a line in every year,” Minister Whan said.
“This trust funding comes from the sale of recreational fishing licences to anglers and the money
raised is placed into two trusts, one for saltwater and the other for freshwater.
“This is a great opportunity to get some worthwhile community fishing projects happening, which
will benefit recreational fishers in NSW.
“Anyone can apply for funding from the Recreational Fishing Trusts, including keen fishers, fishing
clubs and organisations and universities. Joint applications are also encouraged.
“Anglers can rest assured that the fees they pay for their licences are reinvested into worthwhile
recreational fishing projects that directly benefit them.”
The NSW Recreational Fishing Trust has already allocated over $3 million to new and ongoing
freshwater projects while around $9 million will be spent on saltwater fishing projects, next financial
“Committees of expert fishers allocate the funds as part of a five year strategy that includes
projects with immediate and long term timeframes,” Minister Whan said.
“Projects funded in previous years include artificial reefs, fish stocking programs, fish aggregating
devices (FADs), Fishcare volunteers, fishing platforms, fish cleaning tables and science and research.”
Applications for funding close on Wednesday, 17 March 2010.
Funding applications must benefit recreational fishing. Contributing funding and in-kind support,
such as voluntary labour, is encouraged.

just what our economy needs. F*&$%*%ing geniuses. Take away a passion for millions for thousands of years, lets shut down 90% of boat manufacturers, seafood restaurants (I wonder how many supporters get fat on fish shrimp and lobster without a thought about where it comes from), put hundreds of thousands ouf of business, devastate florida's, Louisiana's, California's and many other economies that rely heavily on fishing and seafood.
SBH2O Hunter posted this in the other thread, I love this quote, sums up my feelings perfectly:
A wise and frugal government, which shall leave men free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned - this is the sum of good government.

The following received from "keep america fishing" this morning!
Tell the White House to Safeguard Recreational Fishing
Help Ensure That the New National Policy for the Ocean, Coasts and Great Lakes
Includes and Promotes Recreational Fishing
Your input is needed to ensure that this new national policy does not unnecessarily restrict people from enjoying saltwater and freshwater recreational fishing
Within the next 30 - 60 days, the Obama Administration is planning to issue a final report, and possibly other management guidance, intended to govern the management of the nation's oceans, coastal areas and Great Lakes. The plan originated in June 2009, when President Obama created the Interagency Ocean Policy Task Force. The Task Force, led by the Chair of the Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ), was charged with developing a national policy for conserving and managing the United States ocean territory and the Great Lakes. The policy will govern ocean and Great Lakes resource management and coordinate efforts among the many federal, state and local agencies that oversee a significant portion of our nation's waters.
The White House is in the final stages of developing the final report, which must balance sustainable uses with ocean and Great Lakes conservation. It is important that the administration recognizes and promotes the economic and conservation contributions of outdoor recreation, including recreational fishing and boating. Without such recognition, decisions made under this national oceans and Great Lakes policy could be used to unnecessarily close saltwater and freshwater recreational fishing areas.
Anglers and boaters are the original stewards of our environment. If you take us off the water, this country will lose a vital element in the conservation of our fisheries resources. Outdoor recreation is a part of our way of life and we need to ensure that it remains an option for all Americas.
Click here or visit www.keepamericafishing.org to send a letter to President Obama and other key policy makers urging the Task Force to include recreational fishing and boating in the national policy. When you send this letter to President Obama, it will automatically be sent to your Members of Congress.
Make sure your voice is heard so that anglers' and boaters' conservation, economic and social contributions are recognized as a key component of the policy.
