If you think it is government manipulation, you got another think coming. I suppose you think it is the government that is affecting the music industry, it wouldn't be the music industry manipulation itself, would it?

How many battles with record labels and artists have you heard of?

If government manipulation plays no part, then why (without government manipulation) is the price increasing?

We hear that complaint from teh watermen all the time. Oh the tradition! Oh the poor watermen! They have been here for generations!

If stipulations were not put on oysters, rockfish and crabs, they would be eradicated. It is because the government interfered and said, if you want them to be here in 10 years, you are gonna have to suck it up.

Now crabs and rockfish have made a huge comeback.

Oysters are very important to water ecosystems. They need to be protected. Not antiquated jobs.


Ummm... These aren't Fisherman and this isn't open harvesting of wild Oysters. This is a closed, controlled and stocked farm specifically set up for the purpose of growing and harvesting Oysters.


Kevin Lunny says he and his wife, Nancy, run Drakes Bay Oyster Co. on 1.5 acres of Drakes Estero in Point Reyes National Seashore, northwest of San Francisco. They bought the farm in 2004 from a company that cultivated oysters there since the 1950s.



In addition to violations of the Administrative Procedures Act, the National Environmental Protection Act and the Data Quality Act, Lunny and Drakes Bay Oyster claim that the federal officials violated the takings and due process clauses of the Fifth Amendment, and that they unlawfully interfered with agency functions.

As the last part notes, they aren't even being given the gift of imminent domain seizure. That would at least compensate them for the business they've owned and worked since 2004. As it is, the Feds simply told them at the last minute they wouldn't be getting that permit after all ...and by the way, you have no appeal..now pack up and get out.
