The Company Memo: The spirit of Christmas

 Company Memo 
FROM: Patty Lewis, Human Resources Director
TO: All Employees
DATe December 1, 2011
RE: Gala Christmas Party

I'm happy to inform you that the company Christmas Party will take place on December 23rd, starting at noon in the private function room at the Grill House.

There will be a cash bar and plenty of drinks! We'll have a small band playing traditional carols... feel free to sing along. And don't be surprised if our CEO shows up dressed as Santa Claus!

A Christmas tree will be lit at 1:00 PM. Exchanges of gifts among employees can be done at that time; however, no gift should be over $10.00 to make the giving of gifts easy for everyone's pockets.

This gathering is only for employees!

Our CEO will make a special announcement at that time!

Merry Christmas to you and your family,
Patty

DATE: December 2, 2011
RE: Gala Holiday Party

In no way was yesterday's memo intended to exclude our Jewish employees. We recognize that Hanukkah is an important holiday, which often coincides with Christmas, though unfortunately not this year.

However, from now on, we're calling it our "Holiday Party." The same policy applies to any other employees who are not Christians and to those still celebrating Reconciliation Day.

There will be no Christmas tree and no Christmas carols will be sung.

We will have other types of music for your enjoyment.

Happy now?

Happy Holidays to you and your family,
Patty

RE: Holiday Party

Regarding the note I received from a member of Alcoholics Anonymous requesting a non-drinking table, you didn't sign your name..

I'm happy to accommodate this request, but if I put a sign on a table that reads, "AA Only", you wouldn't be anonymous anymore. How am I supposed to handle this?

Somebody?

And sorry, but forget about the gift exchange, no gifts are allowed since the union members feel that $10.00 is too much money and the executives believe $10.00 is a little chintzy.

REMEMBER: NO GIFTS EXCHANGE WILL BE ALLOWED.

To: All Employees
DATE: December 4, 2011
RE: Generic Holiday Party

What a diverse group we are! I had no idea that December 20th begins the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, which forbids eating and drinking during daylight hours.

There goes the party! Seriously, we can appreciate how a luncheon at this time of year does not accommodate our Muslim employees' beliefs. Perhaps the Grill House can hold off on serving your meal until the end of the party or else package everything for you to take it home in little foil doggy baggy. Will that work?

Meanwhile, I've arranged for members of Weight Watchers to sit farthest from the dessert buffet, and pregnant women will get the table closest to the restrooms.

Gays are allowed to sit with each other. Lesbians do not have to sit with Gay men, each group will have their own table.

Yes, there will be flower arrangement for the Gay men's table.
To the person asking permission to cross dress, the Grill House asks that no cross-dressing be allowed, apparently because of concerns about confusion in the restrooms. Sorry.

We will have booster seats for short people.
Low-fat food will be available for those on a diet.

I am sorry to report that we cannot control the amount of salt used in the food . The Grill House suggests that people with high blood pressure taste a bite first.

There will be fresh "low sugar" fruits as dessert for diabetics, but the restaurant cannot supply "no sugar" desserts. Sorry!

Did I miss anything?!?!?

TO: All F**king Employees
DATE: December 5, 2011
RE: The F**king Holiday Party

I've had it with you vegetarian pricks!!! We're going to keep this party at the Grill House whether you like it or not, so you can sit quietly at the table furthest from the "grill of death," as you so quaintly put it, and you'll get your fucking salad bar, including organic tomatoes.

But you know, tomatoes have feelings, too. They scream when you slice them. I've heard them scream. I'm hearing them scream right NOW!

The rest of you fucking weirdoes can kiss my ass. I hope you all have a rotten holiday!

Drive drunk and die,

The Bitch from Hell!!!

RE: Patty Lewis and Holiday Party

I'm sure I speak for all of us in wishing Patty Lewis a speedy recovery from her recent nervous breakdown and I'll continue to forward your cards to her at the asylum.

In the meantime, management has decided to cancel our Holiday Party and give everyone the afternoon of the 23rd off with full pay.

Happy Whatever!
Joan
 
 
 MERRY CHRISTMAS & A HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL WHO PLAY IN THIS SANDBOX!

Recreational Fishing Alliance: It's Time For Tackle Manufacturers To Step Up For Their Customers - Support HR3061

Recreational Fishing Alliance: It's Time For Tackle Manufacturers To Step Up For Their Customers - Support HR3061

As a freshwater and saltwater trade association, ASA claims it “represents the interests of 60 million anglers,” even though the organization has historically taken a mostly ‘hands off’ approach to working with individual anglers and their most pressing concerns. Between Catch Shares, marine spatial planning and sector separation one would think that money talks and the bullshit walks but in the ASA's point of view, they do not mind losing millions of dollars in the long run; why is this, a pay off?

Obama Signs NDAA Martial Law



Please consider what Edmond Burke said. “Enforcing stupid laws is the essence or tyranny.” I argue that forcing fishermen to torture fish to death and waste them in the name of conservation is a perfect example of a STUPID law that promotes tyranny rather than liberty, just as is a law that promotes McCarthyism. Is the loss of liberty any less tragic if it is taken with “good” intentions by fellow Americans, rather than by foreign enemies? Will Congress allow unelected bureaucrats to continue enforcing STUPID laws on American citizens through the barrel of a gun and violations of our Constitutional Rights?

While Americans shopped,
the Constitution was shredded


Obama Signs NDAA Martial Law
Not since the “McCarthy” era has it been so shaming and dangerous; fear for what you say as it might well Kill You! My saying this to putting it on this blog could, with this law, have myself disappear in the night as I have expressed my Constitutional Right to SPEAK OUT! This is Wrong America. Please donate to help me stop this madness; Gary A. Anderson Exploratory Candidate to the US Senate Florida 2012


AND AS IF THIS IS NOT ENOUGH: READ ALL THE DETAILS LEADING TO THIS SHREDDING OF OUR CONSTITUTION!

The Saltonstall-Kennedy (S-K) Act of 1954; No Permanent Appropriations?

S-K programs are funded through a permanent appropriation and no periodic re-authorization is required. In addition, no recent congressional oversight hearings have been held to review the activities conducted under S-K authority or how S-K funds are allocated; this is wrong as the monies used could be going into the pockets of the regional councils or into whatever NOAA wants. I demand a review of this fund. We the People demand a review of this fund! The Saltonstall-Kennedy (S-K) Act of 1954 was created to provide consistent funding for commercial fisheries research and development. Funds are derived through the permanent appropriation of a portion of fishery import duties. A congressional oversight hearing needs to be set in motion to make sure the funds are being appropriated as was intended, as it would seem with the introduction of Catch Shares, they may have found deep pockets!

A treacherous Act of Treason

This is one of the reasons I announced my intentions to Test the waters for US Senate FL., 2012 because The Presidents National Ocean Councils and the appointed Czars under NOAA/NMFS are putting hard working, law abiding citizens out of business in the name of United Nations rules and laws. Even though the President of the United States of America signed a treaty, without the 2/3 ratification of the US Senate, nobody has enough grit to call it a treacherous Act of Treason, to which it is! Now because of the treaty signage into law, unconstitutionally,Anglers across the country are out of work and countless millions of pounds of "Discards", dead fish, are dumped overboard in the name of conservation; when actually it is in the name of greed. If I were to be elected into the Senate, this Treaty would be reviewed and nullified to under go the process it should have in the first place but since The President did not trust the Senate or the process was too slow, he bypassed the whole process. If the President is still in the White House come next December, I will be screaming impeachment or at least invoke the 25th Amendment, before he signs that away too. The rules of conduct have not been applied here and thus the rulings under "Best Available Science" are illegal to unconstitutional. Why must we fisherman, too break the law? Until this is resolved constitutionally, I would follow the rules to laws of our Country before the signing of this document, LOST. If by going to jail is the order of the day because I followed my countries rules & laws; then so be it! I am an American and not a member of any standing to United Nations rules to conventions as they ALL ARE UNCONSTITUTIONAL!

 Below is one of our fellow anglers to which the thumb screws are being applied by NOAA/NMFS, the Councils and backed by President Obama and his National Ocean Council under the guise of Agenda 21.

My name is Chris McCaffity. I am a commercial snapper/grouper fisherman who has been offering simple solutions that would mitigate many of the SEVERE negative impacts associated with LAWS written by a bureaucrats that violate the Magnuson-Stevens Act. Fishermen have been forced to obey these laws through the barrel of a gun and threats of fines, seizure of our property, or even imprisonment. We pay the price for our obedience with our blood, treasure, and liberty. The gross incompetence of the bureaucrats who claim to have mismanaged almost every stock they control is rewarded with more money and power to rule us with an iron fist and the full weight of the federal government behind them.
Roy Crabtree is the SE Regional Administrator for the National Marine Fisheries Service and sits on the South Atlantic Fishery Management Council. He told me that if I did not like the way our fisheries are being managed, then I needed to take it up with Congress. I pray these Public Comments will find their way to every member of Congress. I pray these comments will soften the hearts of the fishery “managers” who seem to feel absolved of any personal responsibility for their actions that financially DEVASTATE our families, play key roles in the DEATHS of our fellow fishermen, and cause TONS of perfectly edible fish to be TORTURED to death and WASTED in the name of CONSERVATION! I PRAY the PUBLIC will STAND with me against the environmental “charities” and their bureaucrat puppets that threaten our God-given freedom.
I will be BOYCOTTING the December SAFMC meeting that will be held three hours away from the closest saltwater. This appears to be an attempt to disenfranchise a small minority group of American citizens. Many of us cannot afford to travel and stay at an expensive hotel since our businesses have been destroyed. I believe this is a passive aggressive ploy to restrict our freedom of speech. Will Congress allow unelected bureaucrats to violate our First Amendment Right to peacefully defend our God-given Rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness?
I previously mentioned how the laws written by unelected bureaucrats are enforced through the barrel of a gun and threats of heavy fines, seizure of property, or even imprisonment. The enforcement officers VIOLATE our Fourth Amendment Constitutional Rights as they ILLEGALLY search and seize our private property. A boat is considered a residence if it has a head and bunk. The CURTILAGE of that residence includes the ENTIRE vessel. Any WARRANT-LESS search or seizure of such vessels associated with anything other than safety violations (as ruled by the Supreme Court) is UNCONSTITUTIONAL!
EVERY member of Congress and EVERY unelected bureaucrat SWEARS an oath to uphold and defend the US Constitution against enemies foreign and domestic. Will Congress hold the domestic enemies of our Constitution accountable for their actions? Will our Senators and Representatives HONOR their oath?
The multiple layers of fishery bureaucracy are using tactics laid out in UN Agenda 21 which Congress recognized as a threat to our Nation’s sovereignty and to our Constitutional Rights. Congress refused to ratify that attack on our individual Liberty. Environmental “charities” have lobbied Congress and pressured bureaucrats to load environmental laws with Agenda 21 mandates like the Precautionary Principal. Every President that held office since Congress refused to ratify Agenda 21 has issued executive orders forcing these UN mandates on us. Will Congress do anything about these Presidential and bureaucratic actions that usurp their authority? Will the public realize what is happening before we lose 51% of our freedom?
I ask Congress to take these actions to help America’s fishermen and the seafood we harvest.
1. Give federal fishery permit holders the power to have final approval of any new regulation effecting their fishery with a 2/3 majority vote.
2. Give federal fishery permit holders the power to access ALL documents available to fishery “managers” and allow the permit holders to offer alternate management measures that follow ALL of the guidelines in the Magnuson-Stevens Act and use existing Total Allowable Catch numbers.
3. Set up an independent peer review panel to ensure that all past, present, and future management measures offered by fishery “managers” and permit holders abide by ALL of the Magnuson-Stevens Act mandates. Allow permit holders to offer alternatives to the past management measures that violate the MSA in any way or simply abolish them.
4. Give federal fishery permit holders the power to FIRE any fishery “manager” involved in their fishery with a 2/3 majority vote of no confidence and offer a replacement to be approved by the peer review panel and a 2/3 majority vote of the permit holders.
5. Create a federal data collection permit for every recreational and commercial fishery. Require all fishermen to purchase a twenty dollar permit for each federal fishery they participate in. Allocate those funds and 1% of the NMFS BILLION dollar annual budget to set up an independent data collection center. Require every permit holder to electronically report the fish they catch for each trip. The data collected should be used in independent stock assessments to support or refute the “Best Available Science” used by fishery “managers”. The data should also be used to PROPERLY manage the quotas with possession limits adjusted quarterly or after approximately 75% of a seasonal quota has been caught to levels that will fill the quotas without any long closures. The permit holders would have final approval of any adjustments with a 2/3 majority vote.
6. Set up a secure way for federal permit holders to cast these 2/3 majority votes electronically. This secure site could also be used to debate how we want to manage our fisheries. Any permit holder could offer their own management measures. We could have an open and honest debate and come to a compromise that follows ALL MSA mandates and can pass a 2/3 majority vote of the permit holders in the effected fishery.
7. Begin a full Congressional investigation into all levels of federal fishery bureaucracy. Their own stock assessments show they have grossly mismanaged almost every fishery they have controlled for decades. The evidence of corruption and abuse of power is mounting against the multiple layers of fishery bureaucracy every day. Congress set up the fishery bureaucracies to manage our fisheries for the benefit of all Americans and to insure that those public resources are healthy and sustainable for future generations. They have failed miserably. They have destroyed countless jobs. They have caused the deaths of many innocent fishermen. They have forced fishermen to discard millions of dead and dying fish to go to waste in the name of conservation. They have violated our Constitutional Rights as they force us to commit these atrocities. They have used UN mandates to strike down the freedom our Creator endowed us with and many brave American soldiers have defended with their lives. We could achieve the goals we should all have of healthy fisheries that can be responsibly harvested forever with very little waste without all of the Regulatory Discards, financial ruin, bloodshed, and loss of Liberty. We simply need to work together using SOUND SCIENCE, the slightest bit of COMMON SENSE, and remember the GOLDEN RULE.
The actions listed above would give fishermen a little more say in how we do our jobs and how our fisheries are managed while following ALL of the requirements Congress included in the reauthorized MSA. Roy Crabtree has publicly stated that the management measures they pass do not have to follow all of the mandates in the MSA. Will Congress allow these unelected bureaucrats to get away with blatantly refusing to follow the MSA mandates to limit waste, make efficient use of our resources, and promote fisherman’s safety at sea?
Please consider what Edmond Burke said. “Enforcing stupid laws is the essence or tyranny.” I argue that forcing fishermen to torture fish to death and waste them in the name of conservation is a perfect example of a STUPID law that promotes tyranny rather than liberty. Is the loss of liberty any less tragic if it is taken with “good” intentions by fellow Americans, rather than by foreign enemies? Will Congress allow unelected bureaucrats to continue enforcing STUPID laws on American citizens through the barrel of a gun and violations of our Constitutional Rights?
I have laid out plans in previous public statements about how we could limit waste and enhance our resources with things like Artificial Reefs that are the perfect union of aquaculture and commercially or recreation-ally harvested wild seafood. An aggressive Artificial Reef program would benefit the resource and fishermen while providing millions of people with access to delicious and nutritious wild caught seafood. I have also mentioned how the Saltonstall-Kennedy tax on imported seafood should be used to enhance our fisheries and promote the domestic supply of seafood. How are the funds being used now?
I would be happy to provide anyone reading this with copies of my previous public comments. I would also be extremely happy to testify before Congress during the investigation that I pray will begin before it is too late for the few remaining commercial fishermen who have suffered mightily as our fisheries have been grossly mismanaged.

Take Just One Minute



IN TRIBUTE TO THE ONES WE MISS & LOVE!

Making Change at Walmart

Back in 2010, the United States Supreme Court ruled that corporations were entitled to spend unlimited amounts of money to influence the outcome of elections. The court actually ruled that corporations had the same rights as people-- how ridiculous is that?

It's so absurd that the 2012 election cycle wouldn't be complete without a mock candidacy by the nation's largest corporation: Walmart! Of course, we already know that Walmart has spent millions of dollars supporting various candidates for elected office. That's why it makes perfect sense for Walmart to take things to the next level and become a full-fledged candidate for President of the United States.


Check out the announcement below to find out how you can get involved in the campaign.

Sincerely,
Walmart Watch

 
-------------

In the immortal words of Mitt Romney - "Corporations are people, my friend."

Unlimited corporate spending on elections is the driving force in our democracy. Yet, there is a growing movement in this country to deny corporations the rights afforded to them by the Supreme Court of the United States but Los Angeles, passed a resolution declaring that corporations are not people and money isn't free speech. South Carolina Democrats want to put a resolution on the ballot asking the public to vote on corporate person hood. There are even people who would blame the lingering recession and growing inequality in our society on major corporations, as they dump to bundle millions into campaigns representing a “person' as defined by law not science..

That is why, today, Walmart is officially announcing its candidacy for President of the United States, as defined by law, it is a person and as a person can run for election. It's time to take a stand and fight for those who have come under so much attack in recent months, the 1%. They need a strong voice in this race, and as America's largest private employer and the world's largest retailer, with over $480 billion in revenue in 2010, Walmart is that voice. Some might scoff at such a notion, since no major corporation has ever even been elected to Congress. But this is America-where corporations are considered people and any retail conglomerate can grow up to be a President. Welcome to 1984 in 2012! One World Government under one Corporation; meet Walmart, a neutered person of no race, color or creed; just a board of directors wanting to take over our great country!

https://twitter.com/#!/WalmartforPres What A JOKE! A Union organization saying a bid for President; it ought to be against the law, if a Joke, A BAD ONE!

Please take a moment to check out their website, like them on Facebook and follow.

We couldn't get into tonight's Sioux City, IA debate, so I'll be live tweeting my responses!

My Question is; How can an Walmart Union run for President? Is it a spoof or are they just really nuts?

CALL TO ARMS: CALL CONGRESS RIGHT NOW!

Notice in the news its all about the End of Iraq? What about the End to your Bill of Rights? TAKE ACTION NOW!

Today marks the 220th anniversary of the day the Bill of Rights were officially added to the Constitution.

Ironically, the U.S. Senate is set to kill the 4th, 5th, 6th, and 8th amendments of that Bill of Rights later today.

Last night, the U.S. House approved the Conference Report version of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), which includes provisions that would allow the President to throw American citizens in jail and keep them there indefinitely.

The Senate is set to vote on this bill around today, 12/15/2011, so I need your immediate help if we are to stop this dangerous legislation.

You can find your senators' contact information here

Please, call them right away and demand they stand up for the Bill of Rights on its 220th anniversary by voting "No" on the NDAA Conference Report.

A Virtual Candidate, I Endorse Myself; a Middle-Class Poor, Fl. Whig!





Hey Florida; I Endorse Myself! I am coming into this with something neither candidate, Connie Mack and Bill Nelson, mush less any candidate has; I am not a millionaire, I am of the real Middle Class Americans, scraping by day to day, trying to make it all come together. I am making a bold statement, in a Bold New World, the 21st century, where regimes have been toppled through the use of the internet! I am a poor to middle-class American and Proud to be! I am a disabled American Worker and Proud to be! I am a virtual Candidate, the First to be! I am tired of “The Rich Cats” telling me they know what it is like; they have not a clue! I too am upset and fighting back against NOAA/NMFS along to EDF & PEW in a battle for our oceans. They do not belong to you!




And while I'm on Oceans, about the only thing EDF & I agree on is the RESTORE ACT, there they are doing good for the country. Other than that one piece of Legislation, the oceans; they were made by god for Americans and to that the UN and all their Council minuends can leave as we do not recognize the Land of the Sea Treaty, LOST, its Agenda 21 conventions or the rules to regulations put out by the United Nations. If the Senate of these United States of America were to review LOST, they too would see it is Unconstitutional as it was never passed by a 2/3rd majority vote; it was just signed into law by Executive Order. For the first time, the President of the United States of America broke the law by doing such. Why is he not accountable? I, if ever elected into a position to do so, will impose the Prohibition of the LOST document and under the twenty fifth Amendment, should Obama be re-elected, be put under restraint and his powers of Commander in Chief under the scrutiny of Congress, with the Vice President in his place. Either way to whom is in office, with LOST rejected by the US Senate, the Councils to best available science go away; along with Catch Shares, IFQ, LAPP and on and on are gone.




To quote our Party Chairmen, “Principles before Party, Personality and Profits with Deeds not Words. Thus the Florida Whig Party (yes, it's funny to the ear but you won't forget it) is the NON-PARTY PARTY. Read those 10 words again.. It's about We the People, rather than the corporations and special interests. So the Non-Party Party wants you to step away from your comfort zone and protest the granola going on.” I am the middle class! I am Testing the Waters to the US Senate Florida 2012! It is time that “We the People” took back our government from those to whom have grown wealthy from their pickings.

If I had my way, Congress would advocate term limits, the line item veto, session limits, spending limits, removing Congressional exceptions to laws passed, subject Congress to Freedom of Information Act, "end the Constituent Service Racket," establish fair and open procedures, and cut committees and this would save more than we know, too include the nationally spending frenzy. Subjecting Congress to its own laws would resolve the entire issue of Congressional insider trading, too! All funding for Catch Shares to Rural watering policies would go under review and be thrown out as they pertain to part of the Land of the Sea Treaty, which is unconstitutional as it was signed into law without Senatorial approval; thus it cannot be. So why is it still obeyed? But I need HELP!

I need contributions to the campaign or it may just be smoke in the wind, this time. Please it is that time of year to give. Give and let us save a nation together.


I know I live in Florida but as a US Senator I would be beholding to the Nation first. I too am of a third party, so giving would not be out of your bounds to the same old same; as both the Republicans & Democrats were once Whigs! . I am the first known Whig [Florida Whig Party] since the mid 1800s to announce his intention to seek a seat in the United States Senate, as an Exploratory Candidate. If elected, I would be the first Whig from Florida to serve in the United States Senate since Jackson Morton (1849-1855). At the same time, as Senator Morton served in Washington, Governor Thomas Brown, the first Whig Governor of the State of Florida (1849-1853), and serving the state and was the driving force behind public funding for schools; which resulted in what is today's University of Florida. Abraham Lincoln, Thomas Jefferson and our Founding Father, George Washington were all Whigs, believing in smaller government, not social government and the country ran quite well until social injustices along with a civil war interfered with due process in government, like today. The Whig Party, based upon Economic issues, yielded its influence, to arise another day. That day is today.

Merry Christmas to all and God Bless each & every one of you. Gary A. Anderson

Pick Your Flavor; which alternative energy sources holds the most future potential?

Could 2012 be America’s Last Presidential Election? | Godfather Politics

Could 2012 be America’s Last Presidential Election? | Godfather Politics

Do not discount this idea as a myth or conspiracy theory; it is closer to the truth than I wish to think about if Obama is re-elected. If Obama was to be again, I really believe I would disappear, as to would many others who have spoken out for freedom! If you were to look at some of the past Executive Orders signed into law and some unconstitutionally as the US Senate was bypassed, it is a set up for martial law across our great land. Nobody in Germany saw it happening in Germany in pre-WW11 scenarios. The ones that did, disappeared quickly and the media quickly turned to state affairs. If social media, open websites and blogs had been invented in 1930, Hitler would be a name forgotten, as WW11 may have been prevented. Like today, with knowledge their is power; read the article! The worst you can do is learn something!

Investor Jim Rogers Gives Dire Warning ‘That Will Lead to the End of the World as We Know It’

Investor Jim Rogers Gives Dire Warning ‘That Will Lead to the End of the World as We Know It’


I have been screaming this from the roof tops to the back allies, yet the only ones who agree are those to whom have fallen from grace; are unemployed, under-employed, homeless or about to be. Now that somebody,Investor Jim Rogers Gives Dire Warning ‘That Will Lead to the End of the World as We Know Now that another of a higher magnate is saying it too, maybe you people will open your eyes. Look at our homeless problem, the wars, OWS across the lands, the market, the campaign trail, a president who is good at raising nearly a billion in a war chest for re-election but cannot manage his own backyard. This is why I became a Exploratory Candidate US Senate as I feel, I can help in turning things around. You have to know how to say NO!

Presidential Poll Decisions; Their Views on it all

Has your favorite candidate for the GOP presidential nomination expressed concern about the rise of Islamic law in America?

How about our support of U.S. membership in the United Nations and its Agenda 21 programs?

What position is held regarding U.S. support for Israel, closing down the Internal Revenue Service and the 2nd Amendment right to have and bear arms?



THE CORRECT ANSWER IS: READ THIS AND OPEN YOUR EYES BEFORE YOU MAKE THAT DECISION!

My Letter to Congressman Buchanan

As you may very well know, I am "Testing the Waters" US Senate Fl 2012 against the pack & Bill Nelson. I am just a Joe living day to day on a severe limited income and finally said, enough is enough, especially when Mr. Nelson was a NO SHOW at our rally earlier this year to which 1000 or more of his constituents were present. So too were many of yours? I Fish, I Vote as we are concerned of over regulatory burdens of NOAA/NMFS & its Czar councils. This year, 70,000 pages of new regulations have been added to the books from agencies like the Environmental Protection Agency and the National Labor Relations Board, oftentimes without any compelling justification for their existence. The last thing job creators in America need is more uncertainty from a powerful government agency like the CFPB that will receive a blank check for a half billion dollar budget with virtually no input from Congress. Consumer Financial Protection Bureau ; sounds like a waste of money to me. Richard Cordray to be Director if lip service from above gets his way, as this is who Obama wishes to command such a post. I say, why not, if he can recite from memory all 700 pages and to what each means to us, the general public; the mob wants to know also! What is the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau? President Obama promised that “transparency and accountability will be a hallmark of my administration”; I believe I heard that one the last time he ran for office, see where it got us? Too many questions in this article, I'm getting confused! Would love to know your responds to all of this as the RFA to the FRA are in unison when it comes to our Florida fisheries and too job discrimination of overseas products vs Fresh Florida Fish. I hope I get a answer back that is in first person and not a multiple responds as this note, along with any answer, if any will appear in my blog: http://thepoliticalsandbox.blogspot.com/ I thank You and best wishes, Merry Christmas & a Happy New Year...Gary A. Anderson

Well, AS EXPECTED, I got back a blah, blah, blah answer from the Congressman. I could have ask him his favorite brand of toilet paper as this is the answer to my above request, including the toilet paper, now:

Congressman Vern Buchanan rep.vern.buchanan@mail.house.gov to me



Thank you for your email. Your questions, comments, and views are very important to me.

I appreciate learning of your thoughts. As the 112th Congress moves forward on the many important challenges facing our Nation, I will certainly keep your views in mind.

You can find additional information about current topics of debate in the Congress, information about Florida's 13th Congressional District, and other services and assistance my staff can offer to you. I hope that you find it useful.

Sincerely,
Vern Buchanan
Member of Congress


GEE VERN, Thanks for the answer, it relieves me in knowing you give a damn!

Harrison's Eagle Scout Project

Harrison's Eagle Scout Project from Philip Kim on Vimeo.


Going back to my scouting days, I thought this would be a wonderful insight and slight change to the format as of late. Many a leader in this country today could “Learn” from this film of this young man doing his Eagle Project. It takes authority and delegation in leading. This young man had an idea, formulated a plan and followed it through. Kudos to Harrison's Eagle Scout Project!

Status of Barack Obama on Florida Ballot ?

Status of Barack Obama on Florida Ballot ?

FLORIDA NEEDS TO STEP UP TO THE PLATE IF IT WISHES TO BE A KEY STATE


According to the United States Supreme Court, Obama is ineligible to be the
President. That’s right, you read that correctly. The United States Supreme
Court has ruled that Obama is ineligible to serve as President.

It’s not that you haven’t been paying attention lately and yes, you can
be excused for missing the ruling as it came down, not in the last few days
but back in 1875.

This is the argument currently being made by the Liberty Legal Foundation.The Liberty Legal Foundation has filed not 1 but 2 lawsuits, one in Arizona
and the other in Tennessee neither of which have one single thing to do with
Obama’s birth certificate OR challenging whether or not Obama was born in
the United States.

There is no need for either in regard to these lawsuits.

At the core of this action is a simple request that Federal courts uphold the
Supreme Court ruling. Both lawsuits, and the Liberty Legal Foundation
promises there will be more, would render it impossible for the Democratic
National Committee to place Obama’s name on the 2012 ballot.


THANK YOU, Doreen Taft, for bringing this Tidbit to our Sandbox.

Welcome to: THE REPUBLIC TO WHICH I STAND

Saturday, October 30, 2010

I WROTE THIS; in October of 2010, LOOK HOW IT IS REFLECTIVE TODAY?

The Republic to which we stand...

Seal the Deal!
Built by an American, for Americans;
Getting back with the Grassroots of
Americanism!
'We The People'
Welcome to:
THE REPUBLIC TO WHICH I STAND 
Republican or Democrat are still Both Americans.
We must work to reduce the budget deficit, we must also reduce and recover erroneous payments made by federal agencies, we should hold Washington to be accountable and hold itself to the same standard of fiscal responsibility as you or I with our own personal checkbooks!

All Parties as individuals must Stop the Lies;

“Morality is personal as one can get. There is no such thing as a collective conscience, collective kindness, collective gentleness, collective freedom. To talk of social justice, social responsibility or a new world order, may be easy and make us feel good, but it does not absolve each of us from personal responsibilities”

Those to whom show disregard to lying and leading us down the garden path with promises that cannot or will not work need to be replaced with good people who will vote to repeal or replace Bills back to a results driven, free market reform to provide solutions to all of us, regardless of income levels and without default to our country.

The will Of The People must reclaim that to which has been taken from them! We need fresh ideas to consortium in seeing a future of our country in a vision of innovation and massive reform. The People are calling for a ‘well-balanced Government’. It is most important that we get the structure and the strategy right, in reforming our country Back To The People! It has always been a fight for freedom, one which many would take away but we can not nor will not let this happen on our march into this 21st century, holding our heads high with dignity, determination, innovative ideas and integrity showing a independence to our corner stone of our Republic to which we stand, one nation, indivisible to all.

Economic Security is what I want as well do all Americans.

We are on a renaissance to building a better future in Social Security Reform, Health Care, reformation within all Governments Federal to State, a better applied science and more data-based flexibility in our fishery management regulations,in keeping our fishing stocks healthy and being absolutely critical to accomplish this, we can’t base decisions on outdated science and abstracted to extremely poor methods. The current system used in collecting data with the Marine Recreational Fishing Statistical Survey not only falls short in achieving any goal, but it could take down our National and State fishing community by the year 2012. We need fairness and relief from flawed survey data now in order to make any recovery to both the fisheries and the anglers to whom depend on this. These are among our key goals.
Look to Join us soon!

SA@TheDC - The Terrorists Have Won



This scares the beeves out of me! To whom is a terrorist, under a law which has the power to say, “You Are!” Those in Congress might not even have the same protections, if they were to promote a bill which the Commander in Chief did not like and thus, in theory, could be jailed as those trying to upset the balance of Americans; a terrorist! Hell, for that matter, When I say “Give me Liberty or give me death,” a quotation attributed to Patrick Henry from a speech he made to the Virginia Convention, I could by definition of this Bill before the Senate, be arrested and get to what I asked, as my rights and yours; went right out the window! As I have poked to prodded our current Administration, to NOAA in its dysfunctional approach to our fisheries through “Best Available Science,” in creating an atmosphere where the ocean is privatized, sold off in shares and has put thousands of mom & pop business on the rocks; I could be construed as an agitator, if it were the 60's, a activist in the 70's, and now a full blown revolutionary threat to National Security, as I speak my rights; as in this blog. Look around you and just see to whom disappears off our streets. How many books will never be published, in fear, of the wrong sentence! You know, right now all texting, is gathered by a company, hired by the government, put on record and a file is set up on all who use the web to their phone, yet no one speaks out? If I want to live in fear, I'll move to a third world country, like Chad; that's in Africa!

Principles in Leading the Country; A Call For Help!

I too am on a crusade, where together we can overcome the obstacles set before us. Together, we can show that our system really does work, regardless of Party as long as there are Principles to which we stand by and Deeds to which support our words, from the heart. I am there for you and I hope you, too are there with me.

I am in a fight but not for the Tories! I am in a fight for one of those seats in the Senate in giving the country a choice and in giving Congress a mediator, so to speak because if elected, I would be the first Whig to be in the Senate in over 150 years. Suddenly, a chance for all, on both sides to take time to reflect the values of what is at stake and a time to make the right decision. As one alone, in the Senate I would reflect the standards to which our country was founded upon; freedom and as such would unite us stronger than ever before but I too am seeking donations; as this is what it takes to get into such. You ask of me, my dollars to achieve your cause, I ask of you, what can you do for me?
Sincerely,
Gary A. Anderson
Exploratory Candidate
US Senate 2012

Battlefield: America - Have the Terrorists Won?




TO WHERE ARE WE GOING? Please donate to my fund so as this stupidity will not even surface as we, together will crush this evil in taking away ANY rights, Ever as we as Americans still believe in Freedom. Listen to my words:"Principles before Party, Personality or Profit with Deeds not words! This evil must stop before we reduce ourselves to little more than cavemen with he who holds the biggest stick wins?

OPERATION: VIRTUAL CONGRESS; CUT, CUT, CUT!

OPERATION: VIRTUAL CONGRESS! Hi! My name is Gary A. Anderson and I am a Virtual Exploratory Candidate for the US Senate, Florida 2012 election, to which, when I announce, my opponent will be whom ever the Republicans pick from their primary and Senator Bill Nelson. My ideas are fresh and bold! Like the virtual Congress, in that most of our Congressional doings would be slated to be done on secured lines, online. The Commander in Chief can virtually do anything online and through TELNET-conferencing while aboard Air Force 1. We have the technology, we have the know how, yet we still waste monies on twentieth century methods, while working in the twenty-first century. Why is that? Government needs to go online in saving a bundle of needless expenditures! Paper to clips went out the window yesterday, the day of virtual go everywhere from bombs to governments are here to stay. Look at the Mars Rover; bet it is operated in a virtual reality too.

The whole world works online. Revolutions have been started and coordinated online; why cannot a government run online? Think outside of the box every once in a while and just maybe save a bundle in dollars, to which cuts to Medicare or Social Security might not be on the table anymore. At 535 members in Congress, that is a lot of expenses flying right out the window, needlessly! Mind you, due diligence needs to be thoroughly done before many of my following ideas may come to a reality but, in a time where we need to cinch up our budgets and belts, why would we not favor a new way of doing 21st century politics?

The House of Representatives alone minus its salaries spent $268,306,443 in April of 2011 on food & Beverages, travel,rent, mail, child care, printing, and two expenditures called “other” and “supplies.,” parking and Student Loans. Did they go back to school? And what of the “Student Loans” from Sallie Mae Servicing Corp.? I thought that group was broke and into housing, not education. The total Appropriations was $633,248,684. with Expenditures totaling at $304,027,488. To this each member of the House alone, 435 members have an allowance of anywhere from a million to a million and a half dollars on top of their salary. Added to this our .43 cants up to $1. 32 per mile drive times 64 for gasoline expenses but not allowed to charge less than $6, 200.00. Each member is to given monies to have a clerk at the rate of $944,671.00 and we wonder to why we are going broke; its all going to the heads of Congress! I believe not only do we need a more virtual government but a pay cut is in order too! This is just the House! Senate not included....

The Super Committee was looking to cut what? That number is a whole lot of waste at just over 3 trillion dollars for paper clips and such times 12 months a year to run a government! The same needed to do what is needed in Washington, on a laptop via SKYPE or whatever, I'll bet the farm, would be a whole lot cheaper. The expenditures I looked at were for three months of House Expenditures and they came to just over a trillion dollars. Look Ma! I ain't even in office yet and I found a trillion dollars of wasted expenditures. CUT, CUT, CUT! I think we need to take some bold steps and cut, cut, cut and while we are at it; we might want to get with the rest of the world an hop on board, the online magic craze, in creating our very own virtual government!

At least give me a good cookie recipe

This is a short comment, but one I could not stop myself from writing. It's about cookie recipes. Cookie recipes, you might ask? Cookie recipes. This is a political sandbox; a place where my dear friend, fellow wordsmith, and all-around cool angling master Gary Anderson works hard to distribute his and others' findings about the happenings behind the illusion we have been calling the governing body of our great nation. Cause they ain't governing anything. What they're governing in Washington DC, what they've governing in state halls, and what they're governing in cities around America is their own wealth.

So what am I doing talking about flour, crushed walnuts, and sprinkles? Martha Stuart. That's what I'm talking about. When I was a kid, a guy named Graham something was the first TV cook, and like a zombie I used to watch that guy cook great stuff. And I learned from the guy. I learned how to cut vegetables. I learned how to caramalize a pearl onion. He got me into the hearts of many a beautiful woman in my scouting days. Make a woman laugh, sweeten the onions, and you don't have to be Robert Downey Jr. Believe me, you don't. I married one of is very first (of lots, I am sure) girlfriends.

Graham used to drink a lot on TV. So much, in fact, that he smacked his car into a tree driving home from the set one day. That got him into God and off TV. But others were there. My favorite, though, was Martha. That babe had class. A businesswoman with the best of them, I admired her. She made a hell of a souffle, but she employed a lot of people. I've been there. I know how healthy America is to people like Martha. And me.

Martha knew about a trade. She was the insider, for heaven's sake. What do you think she did with the ill-gotten gains? Think she buried it in her flour canister, or spent it on something, somewhere, that put people to work doing something.

Martha went to jail for insider trading. Granted, it wasn't hard time in a hard place, but it kept her from going where she wanted and doing whatever the hell she wanted for a pretty long time. I hated seeing a stupid regulation/law send Martha to jail.

Now I find out that it's legal to dow what Martha did for our legislatures? It's ten times worse. They make the laws and regulations that -- the day their greasy hands sign the paperwork -- change the value of their prior investments. THe ones they make thursday afternoon increase 1,000 percent on Friday afternoon.

They need to go to the same 'country club' their laws sent our friend Martha Stuart to. This is so disgusting it makes me want to share in the misery. I want every American -- ever honest and hard working American -- to share the misery of my anger.

They are literally breaking their own laws. They make a law and then hide and profit -- dramatically profit -- doing things they sent Martha to jail for.

And they didn't give me one God Damned cookie recipe for the holidays.

Common-sense for Latinos

Common-sense for Latinos We need a 'humane' approach to migrants in America; we need Common-sense for Latinos! That is what makes us different than all other countries in the world; its not a threat to our security, its a declaration of others wishing to be free, too! Alabama's new law, HB56 reminds me of something you saw and heard of when I was a youngster and stories of horror were told on our black and white TV of those being shot at the Berlin wall. Now in America, I am ashamed. At 12 million undocumented Latinos in the US today, why not the proverbial carrot? Why would we not work out a way to embrace this new taxable additive into our system, as they are here voluntary are they not? By giving them the choice to become legal or leave, I'll bet my boots the only ones going back are those to whom are wanted somewhere else and wish not to be sent there. Those who do not support the influx of more registered real Americans do so because they wish to exploit those to who are not documented, ensuring a supply of cheap labor. That is Americanism reduced to Civil War era thinking, that is slavery. The Secure America Act, purposed by the late Ted Kennedy from 2005, would tighten the borders but award legal status to undocumented workers already in the country; giving both sides a plus, a win, win. I embrace Newt's comments in"restoration within the Republican party of common sense on immigration." It just makes good sense! You know the difference between most Latinos and us born here in America? They speak two languages, for the most part, as we but one. Maybe we ought to embrace our southern brothers as we too, could learn and together be a stronger America!

Latino's & Florida; Welcome All!

"The New Colossus" A Plaque honoring poet Emma Lazarus


“Latinos are increasingly frustrated with both parties,” as like the law in Arizona, reminds me of a Nazi-era Gestapo tactic or a film strip cut from Stalag 17! With a diverse array of immigrants from Cuba, Puerto Rico, Mexico, Central and South America, we here in Florida are the melting pot of the future to how our fellow co-cohabitants are treated. We should be the poster child of how to become an American, regardless of your previous nationality! A statue in the harbor states; "Give me your tired, your poor,Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free", is uniquely identified with the Statue of Liberty and is inscribed on a plaque, at its base.

To this why do we quarrel and make others feel second class? This is America, this is Florida and we are proud of our Latino's where ever they came from. Offering out a helping hand to anyone in need is the responsibility of citizenship to our country we call America. What is the difference of an immigrant coming from Cuba or Egypt? None, except it may have been a tedious journey to get here. For all who seek asylum, there should be a easy as possible way to enter our society in becoming an American. The land of the free and to that may be what they too are in need of; freedom, can you blame them for that? Putting the shoe on the other foot and I'll bet those screaming against immigration, would be the first in crossing the border.

Latinos y Florida; Bienvenidos todos!

"Los latinos están cada vez más frustrado con las dos partes", como como la ley de Arizona, me recuerda a una táctica de la era nazi Gestapo o una tira de película de corte de Stalag 17! Con una gran variedad de inmigrantes de Cuba, Puerto Rico, México, América Central y del Sur, aquí en la Florida son el crisol del futuro como nuestra compañera de parejas de hecho son tratados. Debemos ser el niño símbolo de cómo convertirse en un americano, independientemente de su nacionalidad anterior! Una estatua en los estados del puerto, "Dame tus cansados, tus pobres, Vuestras masas hacinadas anhelando respirar en libertad", se identifica con la Estatua de la Libertad y está inscrito en una placa, en su base. Para ello, ¿por qué se pelean y los demás se sientan de segunda clase? Esto es América, esto es Florida y estamos orgullosos de nuestra Latino donde quiera que viene. Ofreciendo una mano de ayuda a cualquier persona en necesidad es la responsabilidad de la ciudadanía de nuestro país que llamamos América. ¿Cuál es la diferencia entre un inmigrante procedente de Cuba o Egipto? Ninguna, excepto que puede haber sido un viaje tedioso para llegar aquí. Para todos los que buscan asilo, debe haber una manera más fácil posible para entrar en nuestra sociedad para convertirse en un americano. La tierra de los libres y que puede ser lo que ellos también necesitan, la libertad, puede culparlos por ello? Poner el zapato en el otro pie y apuesto a que los gritos contra la inmigración, sería el primero en cruzar la frontera.



En primer lugar de la Florida
Para mostrar el camino
Una Dirección para el Congreso a seguir;
Una unión de un,
La República de la que nos encontramos!

Haz que tu voto cuente; Dona aquí, la Florida Whig Party, el nuevo futuro de la Florida. Los principios a las Partes, la personalidad y el beneficio, con hechos, no palabras!

Goals For A Sustainable Florida


DONATE TO YOUR FUTURE HERE


Goals For A Sustainable Florida

Agenda 21 and all its components to include ICLEI in our cities and counties, to Catch Share initiatives involving Sector Separation, Coastal & Marine Spatial Planning and the implementation of all other United Nation protocols that relieve the American of the Freedoms to which we have fought and spilled blood for. Dues to the UN are unconstitutional as to which all protocols called for, in the treaty signed by Executive Order, Land of the Sea Treaty, LOST by President Obama earlier this year of our Lord 2011, are to unconstitutional as this treaty to and with the UN was NOT RATIFIED bu the US Senate, therefore making it nullified and void, Executive Order or not! By eliminating all aspects of Agenda 21, throughout Florida and the country, it will downsize bureaucratic government in additional rules to regulations and open our job market and bring new enterprises into the state in creating a business friendly market.

Rules and regulations of big government to banks that cannot fail are strangling our state in making it harder to purchase a new car to a new home. The Florida Legislature must come forward in making some bold statements to the nation in showing Florida will lead the way to a stronger nation. Bank fees in Florida must stop! Banks already make money off your money, why should they make more off the money you do not have extra to give them?

Here in Florida we have the DEP, Department of Environmental Protection, so why do we follow rules to regulations set forth by the EPA? We have our own protection and do not need a partnership in disasters. If the Federal Government wishes to ban the EPA, that is wonderful, less strangulation to small businesses but we, here in Florida must push our Florida Legislated group to press for State Sovereignty and end an era of dictatorship with the EPA.

Supporting an “idea” of creating a Florida Housing initiative, in that we have so many houses either in foreclosure or foreclosed on. With this bubble in houses sitting vacant, how could we allow those who want, to have, what we have; vacant houses? HUD is another failure gone wrong yet it still thrives and does nothing but impose more rules to regulations to those in need. There is no special mode of one size fits all. Yet, with HUD, a big governmental agency, it thrives while many a homeless in Florida are in need but do not fall with in their rules. Florida needs its own regulatory agency, not HUD, in that people could rent to own, sweat equity in fixing it up, to rentals in general. Why cannot the state work out a solution with the banks and put a roof over its peoples heads. Floridians have a vision, I have a vision and we together could make this happen.

Many are against the idea of “Drill baby Drill” off Florida's coast. I have respect for that but I too drive a car? Oil is a mainstay to the world from the plastic keyboard I am typing this on to the gasoline in my truck. Alternative fuels are being investigated and in some cases, used but oil at this time in our world is a mainstay, like it or not. Gas exploration is the new generation, as it is of a plenty but again one must drill to get it. If Florida is not to partake in passing State Sovereignty, oil exploration could happen with or with out our governments approval, as Agenda 21 kicks in, with LOST, as our State waters are now only three miles from shore and if say, Brazil wished to drill in Federal waters, it could and would off your Florida beaches. Florida needs to reject Agenda 21 and take our State waters back. If Florida were to get into the oil game, I would suggest the building of a new refinery at one or more of our deep-water ports. A refinery has not been built since the 1960's in the USA because of EPA rules and regulations. It is a gold mine waiting for somebody to strike it rich bring in jobs, jobs, jobs! To that, in Florida cheap prices at the pump and a new beginning.

In Florida we have the Florida Lottery. We have bingo halls in almost every city. We have gaming on reservation owned property. We have the dog tracks but we do not have open gaming or sports betting; Why is that? You cannot say, Florida does not want gambling, as we already have it. If we were to set a standard where a fair percentage went towards our homeless population and maybe, say, a fund in helping those in additional needs from medical to housing, why would we not allow more? It would mean construction jobs for the Gaming halls and hotels to roadways and maintenance. It would require servers, management, cooks, dealers, plumbers and on and on. A win, win with more jobs in Florida by Florida for Florida! On the other hand and food for thought, looking on the other side of the fence; Florida could probably generate more revenue by raising fees on license plates or increasing the sales tax by a penny or so, than through legalized gambling but I pay enough on my license plates and on my fixed income, do not want more taxes on my goods making my income smaller. I like the idea that thousands of jobs in the construction and service industries would be created, as I can think of a couple of people out of work where I live and I'll bet you can too.

Florida needs to step up to the plate with its internet sales, as other states have enacted this proposal, we too should consider this idea as it would expand our states coffers in more revenue; for every 10 percent of internet-only retail sales returned to Florida retailers (either through an internet sale or a sale at a physical store), total Florida retail sales will increase by between $2.8 billion and $3.1 billion by 2020 with an expected impact of 8,300 to 9,200 additional jobs. Expanding our immediate revenues between $449.6 million and $454 million in 2012. All of this in just making those online, in sales, to play by the same rules as bricks and mortar retailers. A tax Fairness rule is needed as it would encourage economic growth and foster job-creation in Florida while addressing the priorities the state needs in raising revenues. With additional revenues coming into the state coffers, the Florida Legislature and the Governor could then relieve the burdens of new business by offering lawmakers revenue-neutral options by eliminating the corporate income tax. More sales, more jobs, more incentives; Florida for Florida First, maybe the rest of the country could follow with such put through Congress too.

At anytime, anywhere, the President, while aboard Air Force 1, has full correspondence as well the capabilities to address the nation or the world at the touch of a button. We too, as Americans, with our Black Berries to I pads, laptops, whatever, too are connected to the world at the touch of a button. SO Why do Congressional Representatives have to travel to and fro in an attempt to run our country? Kind of archaic is it not, during this era in our lives of electronics! Think how much it would save us tax payers, if we were not paying for Room and Board to the renting of private jets to go to work, all while receiving a six figure salary? Sure, maybe for two weeks out of the year, a trip would be in order but the rest of the time; at home, tapping buttons on a very secure line!

And now that our Congress are tapping buttons on secure lines or not, they still work less than, in generalities, 140-160 days a year. A six figure salary for half a years work and this year, how hard are they actually working? I purpose that a ten percent or more salary reduction be in order for all of our Congress and the President. If the cuts start here, make them start at the steps to freedom; with the President & Congress! Making a statement the American people will applaud too.

Florida for Floridians! Nobody else is going to look after our affairs, so we better start now. I need your help in putting in a bid to run as the first third party on the ballot from our past, The Whig Party. Hence, I live in Florida so I am an ambassador of The Florida Whig Party and I implore you to donate no matter which party you are registered in because this is not about parties; just Florida and how it will effect you and I. These are but IDEAS! It is my CONVERSATION with Florida but if I cannot fill my coffers to get on the ballot, my thoughts for a better Florida, Country and wellness for all, will just be dust in the wind. Will You Please Give to help out your Country and State? Third Party Politics, with a back to the basics attitude; as it was the Whig party that started it all in the first place. Why not give a hand to the underdog? You never know where it may take the country but I promise you this: Principles before Party, Personality and Profit with deeds not words. It's just that simple!

Florida First
In showing the way
A Direction for Congress to follow;
A Union of One,
The Republic for which We stand!


Make Your Vote Count!

Governor Rick Scott: A Sustainable Delay in FWC Trout Needed!

From the Publisher: Fisheries are an integral part of our nation's food security -- or should be. It is time we began treating them as such -- albeit a food source directly tied to the protection of aquatic ecosystems and science-based harvest levels -- and not just the plaything of a science agency.

THE LETTER TO THE GOVERNOR OF THE STATE OF FLORIDA: RICK SCOTT


Governor Rick Scott Nick Wiley
Governor of the State of Florida Executive Director, Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission
November 10, 2011


Gentlemen:

In one way or another, each of us are involved with the fish swimming in Florida's beautiful yet environmentally vulnerable waters. On November 16th, a final hearing in Key Largo held by Florida Fish & Wildlife Commission (FWC) could have devastating impact on our State's fisheries, jobs, and environment. We need your help to delay an upcoming FWC decision that seems destined to pass without your combined and immediate help. I have spoken to Kumar Mahadeva from Mote about the issue and the doctor will supply any necessary scientific data we need to support our request.

At question is a regulation change that will open our shallow estuarine waters to the commercial harvest of spotted sea trout. The species is easy to catch and is the target of many newcomers to our beloved sport; both tourists and residents. The claim put forth by the commercial anglers seeking the change is that they're already killing the species as by-catch in mullet harvests. If that's true as stated, we ask what other species are being killed without all of us knowing? Furthermore, the proposed changes will promote the sale of spotted sea trout year-round at local fish houses. The flesh does not freeze well, and will end up as cat food or garden emulsions.

A recent media event that several of us attended in Sarasota included a presentation by Southworth Associates. In it Mr. Southworth estimates that saltwater (recreational) fishing in Florida represents 27% of all recreational fishing in the US, generates $3.3 billion in retail revenue, creates 54,000 jobs, and produces $345 million in State tax revenues. In our opinion, commercially netting those trout will have a direct measurable and negative impact on those numbers. The commercial value of those recreational trout must be compared to any unsubstantiated commercial harvests.

Moving on from the financial impact, the long-term damage to our fragile environment of the change cannot be over-stated. While many of us signing this letter do not agree on exactly how our vulnerable fisheries need to be managed, not one of us are opposed to sound scientific data resulting in sustainable resources.

We share many commonalities concerning commercial fishery management as well as recreational. We know the importance of commercial fishing to our tables, our way of life, and our state economy. In this instance, however, a small number of fishermen have much to gain and our state, our sport and related industries, and the species itself much to lose. The passage of this regulatory change doesn't pass the smell test gentlemen, and we ask only that the final decision be delayed until we can prove our point and do a comparison of financial and environmental impact with real numbers, not computer models.

To date we have been ignored by the FWC bureaucracy in charge. If you were to survey the anglers and scientists within FWC proper, we are confident they would agree with our request.

We hope for your immediate attention to this critical economic and environmental matter. I can be reached for questions in Saint Petersburg, Florida at (727) 480-2287.

To this, my name would have been added to but due to time constraints and permissions, from the above signings, of this letter to the Governor of Florida, I did not get that chance BUT I WOULD HAVE SIGNED BOLDLY; Gary A.

It's the Holidays And Some Americans are Hungry

End Poverty in America

Every time I hear a politician or TV ad about feeding the hungry of the world; I stop to pause because to How many are eating out of trash cans in America? How many have lost their jobs to homes with no food on the table. Those to have fallen through the cracks. I know, I've been there!

Now as a Candidate in “Testing the Waters” for the US Senate, FL 2012, I would like to see donations made for the right purpose, not to the absurd amounts raised to get into an office. Put my money to work now! I may not have enough to bid for election but we will have enough to feed a hungry American and American families! Will you not help Americans in need? I will and with a holiday season coming soon; you too can get involved!

Obama Casts His War Shawdow on Nigeria

As I have preached to deaf ears for weeks now, if we pulled out of Afghanistan and Iraq, it would be a savings of two billion plus per week, we were not there. Added to this, if we pulled away from Africa, we too could even save more; too include lives lost to battle. You want to stay, then leave a smaller footprint, like in Korea. But too this idea of withdrawal, instead Obama reached into the bottomless money pit and sent more troops to Africa, casting a shadow of war, in Nigeria, in search of the Lords Army & the Nigerian Taliban? A band of bandits who plunder to pillage everywhere they go! Funny how the countries to which we are to play police are rich in Diamonds, Gold or Oil! Nigeria seems to be the base target, though Uganda too may have large deposits of the black gold. When I was in Nigeria, it was for oil exploration and boy, Oh Boy, do they have this; oil!

Now, according to, The Guardian, a paper I use to read in London between classes, the Pentagon is casting a large shadow into the darkest spots of the Nigerian jungle. This is a shadow of war, to which we look more like Obama's Empire rather than a Republic, I fear, as U.S. troops are headed in to help local forces, in a battle with Boko Haram, an Islamic terror group, the Nigerian Taliban, that have killed more than 400 people this year. This escalating campaign of bombings and shootings by Taliban gave us the USA an invite to the party, too which Congress has yet to have a say? When is enough, enough? Congress can stop Obama if it wants too and the idea that it's an election year, is a bad excuse for American lives to involvement. They need to act BOLDLY and go over the Presidential powers that are floundering this country one dollar at a time, one war at a time, one soldier, at a time and now the idea of Iran is in his sights? Hell in a hand basket, is all I have too say and for what cost is it?

A Journey Backwards; Soyuz TMA-22

This Top Photo is of a Russian Space Launch to the Space-Station 2011; new Russian Technology, should be retired!



How do they get down? Drop and float again?



This is top Technology of the time, Apollo 15, The mission began on July 26, 1971: old technology, retired!


Apollo 15 Liftoff, A Journey Backwards?!


In 1971, The world was my oyster, as my dear friend Bob Briggs use to say and as a treat before going onward, my neighbor, Rich Samanski, a Universal News Team Reporter & Photographer, invited me as his guest to enjoy our worlds future from Houston Control to the Lift off of Apollo 15. It didn't end there as, I too who was keen into photography, was invited by a special pass for the splash down, also. I still have visions, as well, 12 X 16 inch black & White photos, I got to shoot way back when. To my amazement, President Obama killed our space program and again put just how many out of work in the progress of trickle down economics?

NASA takes a back seat to the Russians now! Had anyone suggested such back then; they would have been drummed out of town. This NEW technology of Russian ingenuity reminds me of Apollo technology. The Soyuz TMA-22 is a journey backwards in time of thirty years, at a cost of the lose of an industry and an additional million dollars plus a ride on a rocket tip. At least, with Endeavor, you flew home in style. Now while we thumb a ride with the Russians our space program is a circus for all to see at a museum. If President Obama was to scrap a program, why not the ones who use best guess technology; NOAA! NASA offered the moon and beyond, NOAA just sinks ships and ruins lives through the use of "Best Available Science." It is a good thing that when NASA was in service they were not using this best available science or we would have still been stuck here on earth, pitching rockets up, only to come down in failure. Why would we go backwards to get to the space station? Obama's share the wealth just reminds me of a little to close to communism and that is a direction we will not go.

NASA needs to be reinstated and cut NOAA as the President would get more in jobs to additional lost technology. I remember the Space Race and to say we are hitching rides on thirty year old rockets, tells me the Russians really did win the space race; as it now continues with China and we go to the space museum!

What would you rather be on, the Top of the Rocket (Top Photo) or


Riding in Style?

The Democratic Progressive Party Sees "Blacks" as "Useful Idiots"

BRAINWASHED and HUNG OUT TO DRY!

Think About it as you watch and learn some history. To remember with the Whig Party, to which I belong, it split into the northern Whigs, The Republicans and the southern Whigs, the Democratic, to which there was a great civil war......

Captain Sid Preskitt: the threat to American fishing industry by government

My friend and colleague, Captain Sid Preskitt, talks the truth in just what is really going on within our fisheries and the downsizing of our American Fisheries through United Nations protocols. Federal Policies signed in by "Executive Orders" to establish just who is allowed to fish in the commercial industry. We do need a trade policy that protects our fisheries from unfair trade practices, as well as from cheap imports from nations that don't abide by the same environmental standards we demand from our own fisheries. As important, we also need trade negotiators with the level of sophistication and competence to recognize differences in forms of government fisheries assistance -- between those leading to bad practices, such as overfishing, and those designed to help fisheries, such as with stock rebuilding or improving safety at sea. Listen to Captain Sid and make up your own mind, as we that fish, both recreational and commercial need the public's support. "The truth shall set us free." Sit back and listen, talk it about and contact your Representative and tell them you demand real data to support the fishing industry and we here in America want American fish, caught by American fisherman, not shrimp to grouper from Viet Nam!
