Welcome to the site where the owners and members have had it with playing "nice" and being "inclusive" and "tolerant" of points of view that are destroying the fabric of what made this country great. The members here are sick and tired of politicians of all parties lying, deceiving, stealing, and pretending they are doing it all for the good of the country while selling out to special interests who have the set goal of destroying this country. We have had enough of career politicians who use their office only for personal gain, and who refuse to listen to the people who put them in office. The membership is no longer part of the silent majority who play nice and get along while getting screwed by anyone with a loud voice and an agenda. We will no longer allow anyone to piss down our back and tell us it's raining. And we like guns too.

Default Michigan to offer prize in fight against invasive Asian carp

My idea - create a scientific study that says Asian carp livers in the US have mutated and are aphrodisiac. Get the study out to the Chinese and Japs and they'll have those carp extinct inside of 5 years.

Quote:
Faced with the threat that Asian carp could enter the Great Lakes, Michigan is turning to the public for new ideas and plans to offer a prize to whoever comes up with a way to stop the voracious fish.

Michigan's global search challenge comes after the U.S. government and others have spent hundreds of millions searching for a solution to stop the carp from entering the world's largest freshwater system. If they aren't stopped, officials fear the aggressive fish will crowd out prize native fish and hamper recreational boating in large sections of the lakes, which stretch from Minnesota, Wisconsin and Michigan in the west to New York and Pennsylvania in the east and from Ontario, Canada, in the north to Illinois, Indiana and Ohio in the south.

"I think in the fight against Asian carp, there aren't really any bad ideas," said Molly Flanagan, vice president of policy for the Alliance for the Great Lakes. "We have to try a bunch of different things."

Michigan alone has a $38 billion tourism industry, much of it focused on the outdoors, and the Great Lakes region has a $7 billion fishing industry. Asian carp have been spotted 45 miles from Lake Michigan. If the fish make it into that lake, they could make their way into the other Great Lakes.

Once those Asian carp get close to the great lakes it will only take one bird of pray to accidentally drop a breeder into the lake waters. That is all she wrote.
We have the Armored Catfish destroying stuff here.

"Armored catfish wreaking havoc in South Florida lakes

"A species of "armored catfish" are damaging South Florida's lakes, causing coastal erosion and even burrowing holes that trip up humans walking along the water's edge."

https://www.yahoo.com/news/blogs/sid...182812663.html

They undermine the banks of lakes and rivers and erosion sets in. Half a dozen of the damn things can destroy a few hundred square feet of your backyard.

Good luck controlling those damned carp. Seems to be an impossible problem to solve.
Soon there will be only ONE selection in the Fish Market. Those damned carp.

The best way was rejected by the government before they got that far North.

There was a proposal to poison all of the water downstream and then restock the waters. But that plan was rejected by environmentalists.

Convince the fish they are black, then they will kill each other.

Yeah, but then their breeding rate will skyrocket.
