Obama’s Fishing Ban Hoax Or Is It?
Websites all over are reporting Obama wants to ban fishing. ESPN started the ball rolling with a story posted on their website titled Culled Out
I was thinking this is a huge story. Why am I not seeing this in all the news outlets? Why are the talk radio hosts silent about it? So I did some searching. It took me a total of 1 minute to find out the banning of fishing is not true.
Obama is actually backing a plan to ban the fishing of the bluefin tuna. As much as it makes me feel queasy to be defending Obama I had a feeling there is no way this story could be true. Read here, Puggal
So excuse me while I get sick…
Update. I was sent a pdf file of the report. I’m not good at reading mumbo jumbo and it seemed to me the wording could be taken a couple of ways.
In the report…”Restore fish populations, control invasive species, support healthy coastal communities and ecosystems, restore sensitive species.”
Banning fishing would be a way of restoring the fish population.
