Oyster Farmer Gets a Raw Deal

Posted: December 11, 2012 in Agenda 21/Sustainable Development, Agriculture, Water Issues

This is a fairly detailed piece on the complete lack of science employed to destroy a business employing 30 people in a very environmentally friendly way. It clearly illustrates that the objective of the NPS is to destroy good stewardship and replace it with no stewardship whatsoever. This is a non-partisan issue. The action was begun under a Republican President and completed under a Democrat. Agenda 21 in full action here, folks. Science based accusations, without scientifically accurate data. Actually, the data used to destroy this family run business is entirely contrived.

The question, at an ever increasing rate, is who is next?

This was not the decision we’d hoped for and prayed for. Walking out of that room and onto the dock where our 30 employees were waiting — you had all 30 of us in tears because it’s a tragedy.”
