Obama has now closed the Ocean.



LINK

quote:

Just before the weekend, the National Park Service informed charter boat captains in Florida that the Florida Bay was "closed" due to the shutdown. Until government funding is restored, the fishing boats are prohibited from taking anglers into 1,100 square-miles of open ocean. Fishing is also prohibited at Biscayne National Park during the shutdown.

The Park Service will also have rangers on duty to police the ban. Of access to an ocean. The government will probably use more personnel and spend more resources to attempt to close the ocean, than it would in its normal course of business


FORWARD, BITCHES !!!

Waiting on tuba or Decatur to say that it's no big deal because there's a big storm out there anyway.

So out of curiosity, are there federal officials who are usually there to do something when there isn't a shutdown?

Or is this the same as WW2 Memorial to where there are Capitol Police who patrol normally and are still patrolling even though there is a shutdown, thus nothing has changed except for them barring people from walking around?

I don't get it. How do they keep people from going 12 miles out and out of Federal waters?

Have they shut down the rigs in the gulf that are under BOEMRE management?

Please tell me this is real because its the most stupid thing I heard in my life... Unfortunately there is definitely an unhealthy population of environmental extremists down there who would be full on board with this policy.

About the only thing they can shut down is the park run marinas like Flamingo and maybe a few between Homestead and Miami along the Bay.

They would back down, because they know they are wrong, and because they are cowards.

Also, there is a ton of maritime law that has jurisdiction over navigable waterways.

This might be a real interesting fight if anyone's up for it.

a want says you're just ignorant of the workings of such things and/or admitting here that you really need the big federal government more than you'll ever admit.

More convinced than ever that there is a directive from on high to make the people "feel" it.

False economics is what I expect from Chicago politics. Sadly people who voted for this douchebag could care less as long as government dependency continues to expand.

That's exactly my point. They cannot enforce this bull shite. People need to just go ahead and do what they would normally do. I miss the older liberals that would say "stick it to THE MAN!" I hate these progressives.

So the guys who police fishing prior to the shutdown are being PAID to enforce no fishing?

re: Obama has now closed the Ocean.


quote:

Charter guides received a message from the National Park Service this week informing them that they are not permitted to take clients fishing in Florida Bay until the feds get back to work. That means that more than 1,100 square miles of prime fishing is off limits between the southern tip of the mainland to the Keys until further notice.

What would you expect from the government with a history of paying people not to grow crops and paying people not to work?

So are the fishing boat captains being paid not to fish? I am guessing not.
