Carl, this is wonderful but would you be able to work on something banning the use of gill nets completely from Little and Big Bay De Noc? I'm sure as you have seen, these nets are part of the reason our fishery has been depleted by a tribe that does not put money into helping maintain the local fishery. The priveledges outlined in the treaty have constantly been severely abused. Keeping the nets in the bigger waters would help greatly.

I'm not disagreeing with you, but the only people getting caught are the same ones over and over. Put those guys in prison and also change the laws. Works for me.

Well, Carl,

tackle the small fish, if you will...

while the big fish get away with

the entire destruction of the middle class, while you

continue to look at small fish

while the rich promote increasing class separation between the

have’s and the have not’s .

If that’s all you can count on

as your accomplishment in Washington and for wall street financials,

good luck with your retirement and

lobbying efforts to better your civil servant income accounts.

Someone has diverted your attention to fish, instead of concentrating your attention to the demise

of the American standard of living

in favor of the rich

is overwhelming and incomprehensible for the wage earners, working by the hour class.

Carl,

Invading Asian carp are “small fish”

compared to you propensity to

ignore illegal alien invasion(s).

Would that you should have spent more time protecting 330 million Americans

against the loss of their jobs,

loss of their standard of living,

loss of their income, and

the ever increasing burden of taxation caused by the rich and their corporations abdicating any sense of

moral obligation or

economic obligation

for paying more than their share of taxes,

because, after all, they robbed the poor

to enhance their own economic well-being.
