What makes a story scary is that it contains enough elements of the truth to be plausible. The latest craze is the bug eyed Obama administration wants to ban recreational fishing. This administration has shown a tin ear when it comes to the lives of regular folk vs radical faculty lounge activists.
The administration is considering banning recreational fishing of some severely depleted Tuna Species. This is a rather misguided effort as this problem is likely caused by commercial fishermen.
The administration is not about to take little Ed's fishing pole. Moreover, if it ever did than it would be the end of Obama. Americans would probably start some type of civil disobedience. I have not fished in 35 years, but would pick up a pole and allow myself to get arrested. This would be Obama literally telling some very poor people let them eat cake.
The story is more about creeping Marxist incrementalism. First the far left demanded cigarette taxes and now they want to tax soda and junk food. I want the government to
stop playing nanny and get out of my refrigerator.
The left is fond of saying don't tell a person what to do with their body when it comes to abortion, but wants to tax people who have a Mountain Dew. Of course these busy bodies will soon move onto coffee and everything other than water and tofu.
