for a government leader that announced his primary action for the U.S economy is to support peoples jobs and keep 4 million people in work, than this seems like a step backwards. There a decent number of people who sell and breed these animals to make a living, great idea to take that away. :footinmou:shakehead:headshake:wall::lock:

No, but they are trying very hard to be in complete control of the foods we are able to buy/grow/consume with something called
Codex Alimentarius

I love how somewhere along the lines people/government forgot that this is supposed to be the land of the free. It seems like every day that something is being restricted or taken away.

you know, if people just kept fish in their tanks, and were responsible fishkeepers, there would be no need for things like this.

don't get mad at your politicians for wanting to preserve the natural beauty that is the waterways of the US... blame your idiot neighbor that flushed that gar down the toilet... or perhaps your stupid friend that turned the pacu loose in the local river because it got too big.

we brought this on ourselves. you wanna do something about it? show the rest of the country that we can be responsible with our pets. crying about it on the internet won't do any good.

Do you think the people brought over the zebra muscles, no the came over on the bottom of ships.
How many invasive species were introduced by the Consevation Agencies. How many were brought
over the leaders who colonized this country.
To blame it all on the citizens is rediculous.
Next they'll want to control our every bowel movement. Its all about control.
Everything is about Lobbyist such as PETA who want to shove their beliefs down our
throats. Screw them and screw the government.

who are conservation agencies consisted of? sovereign parties? nope. what about the people who started this country? they're citizens too. the point is, PEOPLE in general caused this. the animals didn't fly/swim/crawl here and say wow... this looks cozy. lets destroy an ecosystem.

quit whining about your big brother BS, and come up with a valid argument if you're going to cry about something.

zebra "muscles" are hardly the root cause of this, and you know it.

Its about Lobbyist and extremist who want to shove their beliefs down my
and everyone elses throats as I stated before. Its not bullshibby.
Everytime someone doesn't agree with something they want to create legisltation
to create that change. Make laws to fix laws. It called over governning.
Instead of constantly creating more legislation, educate and teach from a
younger age.
This website is a good example how many young kids would not have learned to rehome
their fish responsibly if it wasn't for MFK or others like it. It didn't take a new law, or species restrictions.
