Comments: Good News: Obama's Eco-Nazis A Threat to a Million Sport-Fishing Jobs

I have a bud that works for the Texas Parks and Wildlife and he says this is all that they talk about. It is going to upset the apple cart as he says and make thousands of Texans lose their businesses and go broke.

Fishing on only on the coast is big business here in Texas

Nobody can believe that this is happening.

Should Say: "fishing, not only on the coast, is big business here in Texas

I will be very surprised if Texans don't simply ignore this. This could be the spark that starts a general repudiation of this crap on a grand scale. I cannot see how this big an action by executive order is Constitutional.

Not to mention all the state revenues that will be missed. This would just continue the downward spiral.

Oh, for crying out loud. This is the same argument used by the factory trawlers that sweep up colonies of tuna, including next year's crop which is tossed dead into the seas.

It is the same argument used in Newfoundland until they had no cod left to fish. A famous sign reads, "In Cod We Trust-ed".

It's shocking to me the short-sightedness. Have you even been to the Marine Spatial Planning site?
