The government protects nature--by putting poison in water
scholar - 4-12-2009 at 03:37

In the Chicago area, near Lake Michigan, dead fish were plentiful today, floating to the top of the water.

Why were dead fish plentiful? The government poisoned the water.

Why did the government poison the water? To kill the fish.

Why did the government want to kill the fish? They included asian carp, an invasive species. In waters they take over, they destroy the ecology and displace other fish. They are known as flying carp because they jump out of the water with great force when vibrations (such as those from a boat motor) excite them. They have been known to hit people in the face, knock them down, even knock them overboard.

The government wanted to kill them, because they had come so far upriver that they were close to invading Lake Michigan.

Why were they so overflowingly plentiful? BECAUSE THE GOVERNMENT DID NOT ALLOW FISHERMEN TO CATCH THEM OUT OF THE NORTHERN WATERS, TOWARD LAKE MICHIGAN.

How is that for government thinking? The invasive, deadly-to-others fish are PROTECTED so that fishermen cannot intercept them, or even thin their ranks (most people don't care to eat them, but they are worth something for lesser commercial uses, like a pet food ingredient or fertilizer). But when their numbers grow to overflowing in the waters in which they are protected, the government poisons them--along with every other fish that has not yet been crowded out of the same area.:(:(:(

I wish America did not have so many politicians who are STUPID. No fishermen could not earn money from these fish, they were protected, until the government poisoned every fish in the water.rant0000 rant0000 rant0000

Bloody Obama!

Obama fish killer!

But I didn't object because I wasn't a fish.

Obama had nothing to do with this.

But, this morning's news report brings worse news.

When the news yesterday said all the asian carp were killed, I imagined it was a lot of asian carp fish. This morning's report says that the state workers went through the dead fish to count just how bad the asian carp problem was (to what extent the invasive fish had gotten into the canal waters that were poisoned). Of all the dead fish floating on the water, they found exactly ONE ASIAN CARP!shocked_yellowshocked_yellowshocked_yellow

What was the cost of this program which poured poison into the water, killing all the fish? Three million dollars, according to the news. (That seems a suspiciously high figure to me. If someone is padding the figure to make the government look worse, they are bad in being dishonest.) rant0000 rant0000 rant0000

It certainly sounds a bit fishy to me.

Is this one of those Obama stimulus make work programs? Where in Chicago did they find people who could count? Or is that the reason for only 1 Asian Carp they reached the limit of their abilities?waveysmiley

Perhaps the other Carp were too coy.

People in Chicago can count.

You mean God allowed the fish to be killed? Or can you finally accept that it is people that are the problem and God has given us freewill to use or abuse this planet?
