The Corrector would like to thank Fishneedbikes for pointing us to today’s story.

Even though the present Obama administration clamors on about saving jobs at every turn they apparently don’t think the fishing industry needs any protection. Hundreds of anglers protested the closing of various saltwater fisheries by the Obama Administration’s National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. An Interagency Ocean Policy Task Force was appointed by President Obama to create a plan for managing ocean and coastal waters as well as the Great Lakes. What has recreational anglers worried is an Administration that has given the power to arbitrarily close fishing as they see fit without regard to the jobs that would be lost due to such closures. Anglers also worry that this will likely lead to Federal intervention in local States fish and game laws.

Take a look at the articles on ESPN Outdoors and read about this dastardly plan to shove yet another government dagger into free enterprise and our personal rights under the guise of “big brother taking care of the people”

    Share Comments 2,432 PHOENIX — Nearly half of the Arizona Legislature wants to force President Barack Obama to show his birth certificate to state officials if he runs for re-election.

    A state House committee on Tuesday approved the measure sponsored by 40 of the state's 90 legislators. It would require presidential candidates who want to appear on the ballot in Arizona to submit documents proving they meet the requirements to be president.

    All 40 co-sponsors are Republicans, comprising 75 percent of the GOP caucus. Two of them have since resigned to run for Congress.

    The idea was proposed by Skull Valley Republican Rep. Judy Burges. She says if people have to prove their citizenship to apply for a job or get a passport, they should have to prove it to run for president.

    On Feb. 12, the New York Times reported on that "President Obama and his team are preparing an array of actions using his executive power to advance energy, environmental, fiscal and other domestic policy priorities."

    Click here for archiveMorlock fears that "what we're seeing coming at us is an attempted dismantling of the science-based fish and wildlife model that has served us so well. There's no basis in science for the agendas of these groups who are trying to push the public out of being able to fish and recreate.

    "Conflicts (user) are overstated and problems are manufactured. It's all just an excuse to put us off the water."

    In the wake of the task force's framework document, the Congressional Sportsmen's Foundation (CSF) and its partners in the U.S. Recreational Fishing & Boating Coalition again voiced their concerns to the administration.

    "Some of the potential policy implications of this interim framework have the potential to be a real threat to recreational anglers who not only contribute billions of dollars to the economy and millions of dollars in tax revenues to support fisheries conservation, but who are also the backbone of the American fish and wildlife conservation ethic," said CSF President Jeff Crane.

    Morlock, a member of the CSF board, added, "There are over one million jobs in America supported coast to coast by recreational fishing. The task force has not included any accountability requirements in their reports for evaluating or mitigating how the new policies they are drafting will impact the fishing industry or related economies.

    "Given that the scope of this process appears to include a new set of policies for all coastal and inland waters of the United States, the omission of economic considerations is inexcusable."

    This is not the only access issue threatening the public's right to fish, but it definitely is the most serious, according to Chris Horton, national conservation director for BASS.

    "With what's being created, the same principles could apply inland as apply to the oceans," he said. "Under the guise of 'marine spatial planning' entire watersheds could be shut down, even 2,000 miles up a river drainage from the ocean.

    "Every angler needs to be aware because if it's not happening in your backyard today or tomorrow, it will be eventually.

    "We have one of the largest voting blocks in the country and we need to use it. We must not sit idly by."
