New England is beyond a doubt the most socialist section of the country. For all their talk about “Boston Strong” and “Hearty New Englanders,” they are the most committed supporters of Democrat liberals. Last Wednesday their loyalty to Barack Obama was rewarded with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) crushing blow to New England’s cod fishing industry.
Obama’s henchmen at NOAA placed a, “six-month ban on most cod fishing off New England this week and are threatening to cut next year’s catch by up to 75 percent.” Given the extent of the damage this ban will do, observers have estimated that it will destroy the livelihoods of people in and out of the fishing business throughout the deep blue region.
The cynically timed, post-election NOAA edict, which takes effect immediately, shuts down fishing from Provincetown, Massachusetts to the Canadian border. No cod trawling may take place in the Gulf of Maine until April 30, 2015.
On hearing of this crippling announcement from Obama’s NOAA, a Gloucester fisherman gasped, “It’s all over! I’m done. My grandfather’s done it, [cod trawling] my father’s done it. I brought my kids into doing it.”
Now stuck in Obama’s web, he explained that his craft is not equipped to continue operations. His boat, which he uses to haul in between 700 and 2500 pounds of cod a day, is too small to make the round trip far enough away from NOAA’s clutches to continue normal operations.
This assault on New England’s economy is nothing new; their allowable catch was cut by 77% in 2013. The liberal suckers in the region should have known better but of course they just can’t figure out the connection between voting Democrat and seeing their lives destroyed.
Recent history shows that the federal government has issued wide fluctuations in its estimate of the size of the cod schools off the coast of New England. As usual the Obama Administration uses whatever numbers it thinks it can get away with as it tightens its grip on every aspect of our economy.
By reflexively voting Democrat, the dupes in New England empower their tormentors to walk all over them.
