Each of us will collaborate with our fishermen and the Department of Commerce to develop a detailed spending plan to address the needs of our individual communities and states

My only question fisherynation is, are YOU being represented?

  • If you are not represented by Vito, and Carlos, and the boy's you're along for the ride, and I think it's gonna be a shitty ride!

  • The 1st step to ending the disaster is to repeal Obama in November.

    • Iwant this administration gone.
      The question is, will the wave of ocean industrialization continue?
