Saving the Fish to Kill the Fish

Saving the fish isn’t about saving the fish. It’s about preventing fishermen from making a living selling the fish. Otherwise, our moonbat rulers wouldn’t blow the fish to bits:

A federal mandate to remove old, abandoned oil and gas rigs in the Gulf of Mexico is blowing up a lot more than just the rigs.

Undercover video obtained by Local 15 shows thousands of pounds of dead fish, mostly red snapper, floating to the surface after one of the controversial demolitions in the Gulf.

According to marine scientist Bob Shipp, the “abominable” demolitions occur as often as three times a week, even if they aren’t normally videotaped.

The killing of the red snapper is also infuriating charter boat captains and anglers. Federal restrictions keep cutting the red snapper season shorter and quotas smaller to protect the species from over-fishing. …

The confidential source who provided Local 15 the video estimated 10,000 pounds of fish, mostly red snapper, were killed after that one demolition.

With the price of gasoline at record heights, why are there so many abandoned rigs in the Gulf? A safe bet would be because of the government.

For blowing to bits, not eating.

    The government wants to make damn sure that someone can’t come along with new technology and pump more oil out of wells that have already been drilled.

    Dear Leader knows nothing but destruction.

    Ah, it’s all about saving the planet- if a few eggs have to be broken, we’d prefer it to be Republican Bitter Clinger Racists Unbelievers- but whatever gets in the way will meet the same fate.

    SIEG OBAMA! DEATH TO THE CAPITALIST DOG RACIST WHITE TRAITORS! – This message brought to you by 50 years of Marxist infiltration into the public school system.

    Just lovely. An administration that consistently does exactly the wrong thing at every decision point, and people questioned me back in 2007 when I said it would be like electing the enemy president?

  4. Justme says:

    I said in 2008 that we’d be missing the days of the nasty peanut farmer and that he would be looking like a great president in four years. It only took one…

    An “enemy” President would be a step in the right direction. Remember what happened to all the collaborators in France came May 1945? The Vichy French were trotted out for public beatings and executions. Obama will be trotted out for a public adoration.

    Conservation only matters if it destroys the economy. Too bad, Snapper, but I bet you wish you were a California delta smelt! Then you could live and farmers could starve.

    Man I have to wait until chicken is 1.99 a pound and stock up because I can barely afford anything. The liberal overlords jack up the prices of gas, which jacks up the prices of food all in the name of saving the planet…then they go and do this. So many Americans would be really happy to have that fish they just wasted. ARG!

    I’ve read that things like unused oil rigs and shipwrecks make great breeding grounds for fish, like an artificial reef. In fact, they often dump things like sanitized subway cars and old ships for just that purpose.

    When life deals you dead fish, make fertilizer.

    @James McEnanly

    Like Carrier Reef for example:

    Libs never care about doing the right thing. They care about their agenda and they will walk over dead bodies to get there.
