Did you mean to use "you're?"PS If you want to learn how to be effective, contact me.
You are absolutely right. I've been doing this type of work for the last ten years because I'm driven by money.I helped form and guide Beautify CNMI for three years because every time we bring a pickup full of trash to the transfer station they give me a brown envelope full of cash.Your argument that I am driven by money is garbage. Don't you think I'd have a nicer car and better clothes, or at least some gold teeth, if I was rolling in money?
It's douchebags like pacificadave hellbent on stealing from future generations that has let a political atmosphere exist and thrive where a 10 trillion debt is acceptable, plundering the ocean is just good business, and thumbs remain firmly in asses while the planet heats up and big oil uses its influence to confuse the dumb people. Fortunately the reign of the morons should end in a few weeks.Angelo, there is going to be a sanctuary somewhere. How can you even put up with the ignorant and selfish asswipes this issue has drawn out?
Ah yes, the never fail, win all discussions, "Whatever dickless!"This round goes to Turbitt.
I love the.. "screw the environment - you're buying Chinese" argument. Whenever the "you're buying Chinese" argument is used, the one using it, is usually at a loss for anything real to argue on.Speaking as an unpaid citizen of the CNMI for nearly 5 decades, and one from a family of traditional fishermen myself.. I, and I'm pretty sure the thousands who've signed the pro-monument petition.. do not want to see "your industry" here. You say "we fish hundreds of miles out, so I have no vested interest in those waters".. so my question is.. why are you and the other representatives of commercial fishing, so against the proposal? I mean if it won't affect your business and all.
I enjoy reading your comments.
Are you sure you're a fisherman? You seem to spend an awful lot of time on the net. :}#1 - My family past and present, extended and immediate, has always been proud of me. #2 - The fishing industry is famous for talking about a good talk about the environmental measures they take.. until their stocks are low and they're whining or attempting to extend their range or lengthen the catch season.#3 - I stated "I'm pretty sure" folks who signed the pro-monument petition.. That's not "speaking" for anyone. It's surmising. I mean, if they were all for "your industry".. wouldn't that support not be on a pro-monument petition, but in a letter supporting Wespac? Comeon.. use your power of reasoning and deduction.#4 - Not everything should be about "the money". This is the case (notice I didn't say "seems to be"), this is the case where Wespac and the commercial fisheries are concerned.. all about the moola.Comeon "Pacifica (yeah right) Dave". That almost hurt writing that. As someone who's been out here for half a century.. you seem about as much "Pacifica" as McDonald's is Japanese.
McDonalds is Japanese. They invented the ebi-filet-o.
dave, welcome to saipan. you can have a blast out here as well as on the blogs but you need to pick and choose your battles...not to mention the worlds you choose to use."I guess that's where our kids get it from, or did you get it from our kids? shame on you Jeffy..."this coming from the guys who uses the word "retard" without sensitivity.you might not be a bad guy but you're digging a hole when using "retard" as an insult. there is a considerable segment of the population that suffers from disabilities. while in the states i worked with a number of both physically and mentally challenged youths and adultsthousands of children with mental handicaps suffer from brutal taunts with that word.you should remove that from your bag of insults or change your argument about caring for the kids.of course, you don't have to use my advice here, but i hope you think about it every time you use that word in the future.
There was little argument in there, so all I was left with the dickless comment. And didn't this putz who can't handle the higher skills like using "your" correctly already tell us we're not in school?
Yeah.. it still hurts.I've been to a number of McDonald's in Japan.. doesn't make it Japanese.Funny you skipped over the fishing industry and Wespac stuff.Maybe it's taking you a bit more time to construct your argument..I'll be around.
Anyone who comes to someone's blog and refers to that person's girlfriend as "poontang," needs to add:#9 Jackass
Your out there Dave. You may not mean any harm, but think before you speak.
Thank you for being the voice of reason, beachboyinthesand
..And I'm not "the voice of reason"?
I am sorry Angelo that I had to remove my comments, I am receiving hate mail. i plan on doing business here and need to get along, people take things out of context when you are not a good communicator on paper I have been called a douche bag, dickless, putz and Jackass and that was by a grade school teacher. I was just trying to have fun and get my point across, Sanctuary Vs MonumentThank you Brad for the welcome and advice on choice of words I took your advice to heart and I will think about it before i use it again.Hammerhead, it was fun, thanks for the banter but please change your picture i am having trouble sleeping. I am Proud at being a responsible fisherman, I am proud of my son being a Fisherman and proud of being a fisherman's son the whole world embraces their fishermen some even treat them like heroes upon their return, even supported financially by their government, but not in the U.S. we are treated like shit by our government and a lot of our people, i believe it is a noble profession. See you aroundPacificaDave
I was going to mention the same thing Brad said, but this guy doesn't seem worth it, and indeed turned tail and ran judging by all the removed comments. The Godfather Brad is indeed the voice of reason.
It's not an ignoble profession. However, when you have a constant battle by the industry to ensure that no areas are set aside for conservation.. and this is the case. Look at Wespac's record in the Pacific, and take a gander at the Western Pacific Fisheries Newsletters. They have taken an adamant stance to stave off any large monuments in the Pacific Islands regions. So anyway, when you have these fishing interests continuously fighting any REAL conservation efforts, and at the same time ignoring the reality of dwindling stocks of many species.. and the industry is doing both, than that noble profession over time becomes greatly tarnished.. and this is what has happened.You can talk about all of the great methods you use as a fisherman.. every commercial fishing company does. The reality is.. they aren't even close to being enough. At some point, the industry needs to realize that large swaths of the world's oceans need to be set aside.. to ensure that fish stocks grow, and there will be fish for food and fishermen well into the future. Right now.. the industry is in "defense mode", and refuses to acknowledge real measures need to be taken now.
