The Company Memo: The spirit of Christmas

---Read all the way through...very funny

                                 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,

Company Memo

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,

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?


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.

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?!?!?
Company Memo

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!

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.

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


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.

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!!/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?


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?


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: 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:

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 ?


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.

The Republic to which we stand...

Seal the Deal!
Built by an American, for Americans;
Getting back with the Grassroots of
'We The People'
Welcome to:
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!

We've been Gored

For those of you that still harbor the belief that Al Gore and his sweaty ilk have somehow served mankind, read this. It is the latest exposé of the real facts behind the myth - neh scam - of Global Warming and man-induced climate change.

Told you so. Next time you need to relieve your white guilt just send the money directly to UNICEF. And support Agenda 21 without the middle-man :)
