This IS A LOT OF MONEY! Unfortunately, the Damage to the native fish and ecosystem will COST A LOT
MORE if nothing is done. These Asian carp are truly a Biological Weapon. They MUST be eradicated as soon
as possible. To put this into perspective, consider The Zebra Clam, The Asian Longhorn Beetle, The Gypsy Moth,
The Emerald Borer, Dutch Elm Disease, The Japanese Beetle, Kudzu Vine, etc. the list grows longer with each
International Free Trade Moment. Most people are clueless until it trickles OUT of their wallet. At that point of
economic dispersion, the damage is unfortunately irreversible. It should be pointed out that this Will create
Some American jobs on a local level. I am sure the folks in these parts of the U.S. will be happy to have them.
It would be a good Idea to put a bounty on these carp. That way you would really get communal effort. At 2 dollars each, that would be 40 Million
Carp. Is there that many to catch? Prices may vary then . The
danger lies in the possibility that these funds will end up in a prolonged "Study". Because you know what happens
then right? Well I'll tell you, the money disappears, and in return the U.S. taxpayer receives a stack of neatly
typed white paper. Sometimes several volumes, inches thick with lots of references.
Then you know What? In the meantime those Asian Carp have multiplied and are now living in your pool.
By the way, to remind us all, this is but a drop in the bucket in proportion
to what was funneled to The Wall Street Black Hole. Don't EVER forget that, because your children wont.
