    Just too many names and groups in this press release that have done everything they could to vilify US fishermen, starting with the Walton Foundation, Who of course granted millions to MSC, only to try strong arming the Alaska salmon industry into continue paying juice money for a British ENGO tax stamp. I can’t believe the WWF posed that person with a WWF T- shirt, but then, the producers of a cartoon mocking US fishermen about fishing methods like trawling, saying they don’t farm like that have no shame. They have revealed themselves to be lower than PETA with their outrageous antic’s.

    I won’t get into the unpleasant experience it was sitting through the evening news with teen aged daughters in the room during former President Clinton’s finest hour, but I will state President Obama has done absolutely nothing for US fishermen, ever, and only has insulted them with his not though out cabinet choices in the Commerce Dept, and under agency’s NOAA, and NMFS. Wish I could say one positive thing, but the history makes that impossible.
