She's read the criticism of the bill, but not the bill, and she's only read one side of the argument, but she's the one we should listen to? Don't get me wrong, she may be right, she just hasn't given us any reason to think that. She asks us to let the scientists make the decisions and then points to severally groups who wouldn't know a scientist if they saw one in its natural habitat. It's nice that you care about nature, but if you're going to take up my time with a letter, please give me something to go on.

I read this letter two times and cannot figure out if she is for or against the legislation. (maybe my coffee hasn't hit my brain yet)

Sham, Do you really think the rest of us are so stupid that you have to help us out with our internet searches? And why in the world do I need to know what a bunch of wackos in the Sierra Club think? Unlike you, I can think for myself and if I want to read the bill, I can find it without your help (which, by the way, is no help) Your constant reference to the opinions of others is tiresome. Just because someone agrees with you does not make their opinion authoritative.

You go get them MrShaman, they won't be happy until all the fish are dead and the birds drop out of the sky. All in the name of the all mighty dollar. Any repercussions will be handled by future generations.

Yeah when the PA F&G introduced the non-native Muskie in the Susquehanna, they caused the native suckers and bullhead catfish to go extinct in this area. Helped them loose credibility.

This is not a Tea Party issue. How we handle our water resources affect all of us, not just the fish. I will part with my conservative companions on this issue. The letter writer fails to convey a precise point to extract info from, as enigma has rightly pointed out.

but, to infer this is a TP debate is insidious. Progress has and will continue to impose threats (foreseen or otherwise) to our society. IMO, the federal agencies need to remove themselves from the state levels and let us determine what deems best.

Hey Texas, my husband last year caught a bullhead up behind F&S Lumber using chicken livers and caught suckers across from CAReed's with the same bait fishing at night.

BornHere,

Glad to hear that there are still some around. When I've talked with people around 7-10 years ago, they were never catching any in the river. That is where I used to catch them growing up or in the mouths of the streams that feed into the river.

"they won't be happy until all the fish are dead and the birds drop out of the sky."

Drink. See: rhetorical fallacy 101.

"Any repercussions will be handled by future generations."

They'll have to handle the debt (an actual problem) first.
