I do believe this goes into the "Only in Umerica" bucket.

Not at all.

Did you miss the part where global corporations run the global economy - on their terms?

Their fish don't get bought and distributed in the marketplace.

Which means:

If they DO sign the waiver, their fish get bought, distributed, and sold in grocery stores.

THEN, when people get sick from the toxins in the fish, they have to sue little-guy practically-bankrupt fishermen instead of the Big Rich Parasite Corporations who feed on little guys.

...And that's how it works. Nifty strategy, dontcha think?



What do you want to bet that some giant commercial fishing conglomerate isn't licking its lips, waiting to snatch up all the bankrupt fishing fleets that fail. More of the war against the working man in this country.

BP owes over a Trillion to people on the gulf -- and THIS is why. Nobody should be fishing those waters so 100% of their livelihood is in question for perhaps a decade. The co-opted government, will turn a blind eye but will let these people hang in the wind with lawsuits -- as if the Shrimpers somehow put lead and toxins in their catch.
