|NO MPLA! NO CLOSURES!|
| by TC on Sat Nov 28 2009, 09:53AM
I believe that our planet’s most spectacular and ecologically important treasures deserve to be open to the public. That’s why I need your help before the southern California’s coast is closed.As you may know, California is in the process of creating marine protected areas (MPAs) along our coast. Recently, the Blue Ribbon Task Force, a group of academic and business leaders, recommended a preferred plan for Southern California.
We need your help in voicing opposition for this plan:
1. Send a message to voice your opposition for this plan to take away public lands.
2. Make a huge difference by attending the hearing on December 9th at the LAX Raddision in Los Angeles.
Joint BRTF/Fish and Game Commission Meeting
The California Fish and Game Commission will host a joint meeting with the Blue Ribbon Task Force, in which the BRTF will hand over their recommended network of marine protected areas for Southern California.
Your attendance will help send a powerful message to the Fish and Game Commission: that Californians oppose any marine protected areas.
We need to ensure that our children and grandchildren can experience wild, healthy oceans for the next 100 years to come. Thanks, as always, for your help.

IF THIS TEACHER HAS THE GUTS TO SEND THIS,
WE SHOULD HAVE THE NERVE TO FORWARD IT. SHE WILL PROBABLY LOSE HER JOB.
DO WE AMERICANS HAVE THE NERVE TO STAND BEHIND HER? IF WE AGREE, OR DO WE
JUST LET HER AND OTHERS LIKE HER CARRY OUR LOAD? INTERESTING QUESTION.
This 4th grade teacher has said it all, and
she was brave enough to attach her name to it.

I have had it with you and your
administration, sir. Your conduct on your recent trip overseas has
convinced me that you are not an adequate
representative of the United States of America collectively
or of me personally.
You are so obsessed with appeasing the
Europeans and the Muslim world that you have abdicated the
responsibilities of the President of the United States of America . You are
responsible to the citizens of the United States .. You are not
responsible to the peoples of any other country on earth.
I personally resent that you go around the
world apologizing for the United States telling Europeans that we are
arrogant and do not care about their status in the world. Sir, what do you
think the First World War and the Second World War were all about if not
the consideration of the peoples of Europe ? Are you brain dead? What do
you think the Marshall Plan was all about? Do you not understand or know
the history of the 20th century?
Where do you get off telling a Muslim
country that the United States does not consider itself a Christian
country? Have you not read the Declaration of Independence or the
Constitution of the United States ? This country was founded on
Judeo-Christian ethics and the principles governing this country, at least
until you came along, come directly from this heritage. Do you not
Your bowing to the king of Saudi Arabia is
an affront to all Americans. Our President does not bow down to anyone, let
alone the king of Saudi Arabia . You didn’t show Great Britain , our best
and one of our oldest allies, the respect they deserve yet you bow down to
the king of Saudi Arabia . How dare you, sir! How dare you!
You can’t find the time to visit the graves
of our greatest generation because you don’t want to offend the Germans
but make time to visit a mosque in Turkey … You offend our dead and every
veteran when you give the Germans more respect than the people who saved
the German people from themselves. What’s the matter with you? I am
convinced that you and the members of your administration have the
historical and intellectual depth of a mud puddle and should be ashamed of
yourselves, all of you..
You are so self-righteously offended by the
big bankers and the American automobile manufacturers yet do nothing about
the real thieves in this situation, Mr. Dodd, Mr. Frank, Franklin Raines,
Jamie Gorelic, the Fannie Mae bonuses, and the Freddie Mac bonuses. What do
you intend to do about them? Anything? I seriously doubt it.
What about the U.S. House members passing
out $9.1 million in bonuses to their staff members on top of the $2.5
million in automatic pay raises that lawmakers gave themselves? I
understand the average House aide got a 17% bonus. I took a 5% cut in my
pay to save jobs with my employer. You haven’t said anything about that.
Who authorized that? I surely didn’t!
Executives at Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac
will be receiving $210 million in bonuses over an eighteen-month period,
that’s $45 million more than the AIG bonuses. In fact, Fannie and Freddie
executives have already been awarded $51 million not a bad take. Who
authorized that and why haven’t you expressed your outrage at this group
who are largely responsible for the economic mess we have right now?
I resent that you take me and my fellow
citizens as brain-dead and not caring about what you idiots do. We are
watching what you are doing and we are getting increasingly fed up with all
I also want you to know that I personally
find just about everything you do and say to be offensive to every one of
my sensibilities. I promise you that I will work tirelessly to see that
you do not get a chance to spend two terms destroying my beautiful country.
Every real American
P.S. I rarely ask that emails be ‘passed
around’…………..PLEASE SEND THIS TO YOUR EMAIL LIST……it’s past time
for all Americans to wake up!

We had a bumpy ride out Friday night but made it to San Nick just after daylight on Saturday morning and put the anchor down on the 11 fathom spot.
We had a hardy group and most everyone was at the rail even thou there was about 20kts. of wind and a building sea. After an hour of just scratch bites and with the seas and wind coming up even more we made a move to the dutch harbor side of the island.
The sea conditions where much better even thou we still had about 20kts. of wind. It looked like we where going to just have to wait the wind out but we got a nice surprise and found a couple of shallow rocks that produced for us.
We where able to put together a nice catch of large white fish ,chuckle heads, lings and sheep head. It was cold out on deck but most of the gang held in there and made a catch of good eating fish for the freezer.
We got a report of a 6pack boat catching yellows at the west end of San Clemente so after every one had eaten we headed over to north west harbor.
During the night the wind backed off and at day light there was only a ripple on the water. We hooked a couple of large mystery fish in the anchorage but they found the kelp and broke off. We made a move out to the 9 fathom spot and found the yellows holding on the west edge. We managed to land 7 fish before the current backed off. With little current and some of the folks wanting to catch some more rockfish we moved out to deeper water and put some more rockfish in everyone’s bag.
After lunch we went looking for the yellows again and they where up on the surface this time along with the big bonito. We saw a lot more fish in the afternoon and managed to put 20 nice yellows and all of the bonito you wanted on the boat.
All in all it was a fun trip and as usual Doc was the hot stick with 4 yellows and he handed a few more off.
THANKS DOC AND COMPANY WE ALL HAD A GREAT TIME

THE OLD MAN!
As I came out of the supermarket that sunny day, pushing my cart of groceries towards my car, I saw an old man with the hood of his car up and a lady sitting inside the car, with the door open.
The old man was looking at the engine. I put my groceries away in my car and continued to watch the old gentleman from about twenty five feet away.
I saw a young man in his early twenties with a grocery bag in his arm, walking towards the old man. The old gentleman saw him coming too and took a few steps towards him.
I saw the old gentleman point to his open hood and say something. The young man put his grocery bag into what looked like a brand new Cadillac Escalade and then turn back to the old man and I heard him yell at the old gentleman saying,
‘You shouldn’t even be allowed to drive a car at your age.’ And then with a wave of his hand, he got in his car and peeled rubber out of the parking lot.
I saw the old gentleman pull out his handkerchief and mop his brow as he went back to his car and again looked at the engine.
He then went to his wife and spoke with her and appeared to tell her it would be okay. I had seen enough and I approached the old man. He saw me coming and stood straight and as I got near him I said, ‘Looks like you’re having a problem.’
He smiled sheepishly and quietly nodded his head. I looked under the hood myself and knew that whatever the problem was, it was beyond me. Looking around I saw a gas station up the road and told the old man that I would be right back… I drove to the station and went inside and saw three attendants working on cars. I approached one of them and related the problem the old man had with his car and offered to pay them if they could follow me back down and help him.
The old man had pushed the heavy car under the shade of a tree and appeared to be comforting his wife. When he saw us he straightened up and thanked me for my help. As the mechanics diagnosed the problem (overheated engine) I spoke with the old
When I shook hands with him earlier, he had noticed my Marine Corps ring and had commented about it, telling me that he had been a Marine too. I nodded and asked the usual question, ‘What outfit did you serve with?’
He had mentioned that he served with the first Marine Division at Tarawa, Saipan, Iwo Jima and Guadalcanal .
He had hit all the big ones and retired from the Corps after the war was over. As we talked we heard the car engine come on and saw the mechanics lower the hood. They came over to us as the old man reached for his wallet, but was stopped by me and I told him I
would just put the bill on my AAA card.
He still reached for the wallet and handed me a card that I assumed had his name and address on it and I stuck it in my pocket.. We all shook hands all around again and I said my goodbye’s to his wife.
I then told the two mechanics that I would follow them back up to the station. Once at the station I told them that they had interrupted their own jobs to come along with me and help the old man. I said I wanted to pay for the help, but they refused to charge me.
One of them pulled out a card from his pocket looking exactly like the card the old man had given to me. Both of the men told me then,that they were Marine Corps Reserves. Once again we shook hands all around and as I was leaving, one of them told me I should look at the card the old man had given to me.. I said I would and drove off.
For some reason I had gone about two blocks when I pulled over and took the card out of my pocket and looked at it for a long, long time. The name of the old gentleman was on the card in golden leaf and under his name……..
‘Congressional Medal of Honor Society.’
I sat there motionless looking at the card and reading it over and over. I looked up from the card and smiled to no one but myself and marveled that on this day, four Marines had all come together, because one of us needed help. He was an old man all right, but it felt good to have stood next to greatness and courage and an honor to have been in his presence. Remember, OLD men like him gave you FREEDOM for America .
Thanks to those who served..& those who supported them.
America is not at war. The U.S. Military is at war. America is at the Mall. If you don’t stand behind our troops, PLEASE feel free to stand in front of them!
Remember, Freedom isn’t Free, thousands have paid the price so you can enjoy what you have today.
LET’S DO THIS JUST 19 WORDS
GOD OUR FATHER, WALK THROUGH MY HOUSE AND TAKE AWAY ALL MY WORRIES; AND PLEASE WATCH OVER AND HEAL MY FAMILY IN JESUS ‘ NAME. AND PLEASE PROTECT OUR FREEDOMS AND WATCH OVER OUR TROOPS WHO ARE DEFENDING THOSE FREEDOMS.
IN JESUS NAME,AMEN
For those of you who don’t know, Col. Allen West is running for U.S.
Congressman Ron Klein’s seat in Florida . Attached is his article
regarding the shootings at Ft. Hood , Texas .
Please take a few minutes to read what he wrote.
“Tragedy at Ft Hood”
Lieutenant Colonel Allen B West (US Army, Ret)
This past Thursday 13 American Soldiers were killed and another 30
wounded at a horrific mass shooting at US Army installation, Ft Hood
Texas . As I watched in horror and then anger I recalled my two years
of final service in the Army as a Battalion Commander at Ft Hood,
My wife and two daughters were stunned at the incident having lived
on the post in family housing.
A military installation, whether it is Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine,
or Coast Guard, is supposed to be a safe sanctuary for our Warriors and
their families. It is intended to provide a home whereby our “Band of
Brothers and Sisters” can find solace and bond beyond just the foxhole
but as family units.
A military installation is supposed to be a place where our Warriors
train for war, to serve and protect our Nation.
On Thursday, 5 November 2009 Ft Hood became a part of the battlefield
in the war against Islamic totalitarianism and state sponsored
There may be those who feel threatened by my words and would even
recommend they not be uttered. To those individuals I say step aside
because now is not the time for cowardice. Our Country has become so
paralyzed by political correctness that we have allowed a vile and
determined enemy to breach what should be the safest place in America ,
an Army post.
We have become so politically correct that our media is more
concerned about the stress of the shooter, Major Nidal Malik Hasan. The
misplaced benevolence intending to portray him as a victim is
despicable. The fact that there are some who have now created an entire
new classification called; “pre-virtual vicarious Post Traumatic Stress
Disorder (PTSD)” is unconscionable.
This is not a “man caused disaster”. It is what it is, an Islamic
We have seen this before in 2003 when a SGT Hasan of the 101st
Airborne Division (Air Assault) threw hand grenades and opened fire
into his Commanding Officer’s tent in Kuwait . We have seen the foiled
attempt of Albanian Muslims who sought to attack Ft Dix, NJ. Recently
we saw a young convert to Islam named Carlos Bledsoe travel to Yemen,
receive terrorist training, and return to gun down two US Soldiers at a
Little Rock, Arkansas Army recruiting station. We thwarted another
Islamic terrorist plot in North Carolina which had US Marine Corps
Base, Quantico as a target.
What have we done with all these prevalent trends? Nothing.
What we see are recalcitrant leaders who are refusing to confront the
issue, Islamic terrorist infiltration into America , and possibly
further into our Armed Services. Instead we have a multiculturalism and
diversity syndrome on steroids.
Major Hasan should have never been transferred to Ft Hood, matter of
fact he should have been Chaptered from the Army. His previous
statements, poor evaluation reports, and the fact that the FBI had him
under investigation for jihadist website posting should have been proof
However, what we have is a typical liberal approach to find a victim,
not the 13 and 30 Soldiers and Civilian, but rather the poor shooter. A
shooter who we are told was a great American, who loved the Army and
serving his Nation and the Council on American Islamic Relations
stating that his actions had nothing to do with religious
We know that Major Hasan deliberately planned this episode; he did
give away his possessions.
he stood atop a table in the confined space of the Soldier
Readiness Center shouting “Allahu Akhbar”,
No one in leadership seems willing to sound the alarm for the
American people; they are therefore complicit in any future attacks.
Our Congress should suspend the insidious action to vote on a
preposterous and unconstitutional healthcare bill and resolve the issue
of “protecting the American people”.
The recent incidents in Dearborn Michigan , Boston Massachusetts ,
Dallas Texas , and Chicago Illinois should bear witness to the fact
that we have an Islamic terrorism issue in America . And don’t have
CAIR call me and try to issue a vanilla press statement; they are an
illegitimate terrorist associated organization which should be
We have Saudi Arabia funding close to 80% of the mosques in the
United States , one right here in South Florida, Pompano Beach . Are we
building churches and synagogues in Saudi Arabia ? Are “Kaffirs” and
“Infidels” allowed travel to Mecca ?
So much for peaceful coexistence.
Saudi Arabia is sponsoring radical Imams who enter into our prisons
and convert young men into a virulent Wahabbist ideology….one resulting
in four individuals wanting to destroy synagogues in New York with
plastic explosives. Thank God the explosives were dummy. They are
sponsoring textbooks which present Islamic centric revisionist history
in our schools.
We must recognize that there is an urgent need to separate the
theo-political radical Islamic ideology out of our American society. We
must begin to demand surveillance of suspected Imams and mosques that
are spreading hate and preaching the overthrow of our Constitutional
Republic……that speech is not protected under First Amendment, it is
sedition and if done by an American treason.
There should not be some 30 Islamic terrorist training camps in
America that has nothing to do with First Amendment, Freedom of
Religion. The Saudis are not our friends and any American political
figure who believes such is delusional.
When tolerance becomes a one way street it certainly leads to
cultural suicide. We are on that street. Liberals
cannot be trusted to defend our Republic,
because their sympathies obviously lie with their perceived victim,
Major Nidal Malik Hasan.
I make no apologies for these words, and anyone angered by them,
please, go to Ft Hood and look into the eyes of the real victims. The
tragedy at Ft Hood Texas did not have to happen. Consider now the
feelings of those there and on every military installation in the
world. Consider the feelings of the Warriors deployed into combat zones
who now are concerned that their loved ones at home are in a combat
Ft Hood suffered an Islamic jihadist attack, stop the denial, and
realize a simple point.
The reality of your enemy must become your own.
Steadfast and Loyal,
Lieutenant Colonel Allen B West (US Army, Ret)

Capt. Mike Jewett reporting in this afternoon.
Mike said they had a few hours to kill so they made a swing by San Martin this morning and found good conditions and some breezing spots of yellows on the 6 fathom spot. Mike said They caught a few nice yellows on yo-yo jigs and dropper loops.
Then it was time to head on down the Baja Coast. They should arrive on the tuna grounds bellow Cedros at first light in the morning.
