What Recovery? Coastal Commercial Fishing Industry pay $3-500 a DAY for GOVERNMENT Observer on Boat

by Stephen Frank on 12/31/2013

Why has the cost of fish in the market and restaurant gone up so high?  Why have so many in the fishing industry lost jobs?  Why is the government trying to control the number of fish caught by forcing fishing boats to hire “observers” on each boat to count the fish caught?  Because government, State and Feds, have decided they own the oceans and control anything and anyone who goes out on a boat.

This has been going on for two years—and will only get worse.  Bet you did not know about this, unless you are part of the industry.  But, YOU pay for it.

““The catch share system is probably the worst thing that ever happened to the fishing industry,” said Jeremiah O’Brien, director of the Morro Bay Commercial Fishermen’s Organization. “We’re working within the system to survive as long as we can.”

The catch shares system enacted two years ago sets a yearly fish quota, then splits shares among individual fishers and companies. It’s meant to prevent overfishing while allowing fishers to earn a living.

Qualified monitors are required to go out on each fishing trip.

In Monterey Harbor, the skipper of a fishing boat that has trawled that area for decades says he’s been docked since spring, unable to earn a living. Jiri Nozicka says the quota system has problems that he can’t navigate.”

Do water woes help 2014 Water Bond?

Agriculture - California, Air, Climate & Weather, Klamath River & Dams, State gov, Water rights, Water, Resources & Quality

PNP comment: And we know that the “powers that be” want to sacrifice Siskiyou County economies, communities and agriculture by destroying four perfectly-functioning, well-maintained hydro-electric dams 200 miles inland in the Klamath River and California’s $250 million share will be attached to the State Water Bond. Destroying the dams will destroy the water quality, habitat and endangered salmon runs for years. Talk about phony lies. It is truly those with “special interests” that are demanding the Klamath dams are ripped out! Vote NO on any Water Bond! — Editor Liz Bowen

Do water woes help 2014 bond? Politicians and Special Interests Hope So

by Stephen Frank on 12/31/2013

Thanks to the Delta Smelt, environmentalists, other fish and phonies, California will have a certified drought in 2014.  The government has announced to the farmers of the Central Valley to expect no more than 5% of the needed water.  That may not be enough to save prime farm land from going bad.

Big government types are salivating that they will be able to pass “water bonds” so special interests can be satisfied, though little or no water will be produced.  For 3-4 election cycles, Sacramento has been trying to put an $10-12 billion water bond on the ballot—but knowing it will fail, held back.  Guv Brown wants to spend, as we now know, about $64 billion to move water from the north to south, without a single drop of new water.  Unions are begging for this one!!

“Joe Caves of the Conservation Strategy Group and the leader of three successful water bonds since 2000, says voters’ attitudes toward the government and economy are now on the up swing so bonds are polling more favorably than before. He also mentioned the growing impression that California is facing water shortages and that a potential drought situation could bolster investments in those areas.

“On both of those two fronts I think there is a good possibility that 2014 could be a year where it would be possible to pass a water bond,” Caves said. “The third big issue is the level of opposition, and bonds don’t really have any opposition—at least of any significance.”

Oh, how are they selling these bonds?  On the basis of a “flood”.  How dumb are the voters of California?  We will find out.

New year means new laws for drivers, gun owners, business

State gov

U-T San Diego.com

Guns, immigrants, abortion subject of new state legislation

— New state laws taking hold Jan. 1 address some of California’s most controversial and complex societal issues of the day, from gun control to immigrant rights to abortion.

But the long arm of the law also delivers less-controversial news for everyday Californians: beer-lovers will no longer have to growl over growlers, motorists won’t have to feed broken parking meters and disappointed fans won’t have to settle on watching the big game on TV because some scalper-run computer program hoarded all of the tickets.

All told, Gov. Jerry Brown and the Legislature produced about 800 laws, although a handful are postdated. The most sweeping of those coming into play later enacts a graduated increase in the minimum wage, starting July 1. Another banning the use of lead bullets while hunting does not become law for several years.

More information about the legislation can be found at

www.leginfo.ca.gov.

Here is a look at some of the most far-reaching:

DRIVING

• Low-emission and zero-emission vehicles with just a driver may continue to use car pool lanes until 2019. Assembly Bill 266 and Senate Bill 286.

• Drivers who find parking meters broken will no longer be ticketed. AB 61.

• Teenagers under the age of 18 may not text while driving, even if using so-called “hands free’ devices that allow voice-command messages. SB 194.

• Counties may voluntarily hike vehicle registration fees by $1 to pay for anti-theft programs. AB 767.

• Motorists may order a special $50 “Snoopy” license plate to raise money for museums. AB 482 (Carried by Assemblywoman Toni Atkins, D-San Diego.)

• Motorists are required to leave three-feet of space when passing bicyclists starting Sept. 16. AB 1371.

GUN CONTROL

• The Department of Justice will start retaining records of long-gun purchases, where previously those documents were destroyed within five days. AB 809 was signed into law in 2011 but delayed until 2014.

• Conversion kits can no longer be sold if the alteration allows a gun to shoot more than 10 rounds before reloading. AB 48

• Purchasers of long guns will have to pass a written safety test similar to the one now required of those buying handguns. SB 683. (Carried by Sen. Marty Block, D-San Diego.)

• Those found guilty of making credible threats of violence against someone must wait five years, instead of current six months, to own a firearm. AB 1131.

• Gun owners who do not keep their weapons securely stored can face criminal penalties if the gun is used in a shooting involving a child. AB 500.

• Hunters cannot use lead ammunition. AB 711. Effective no later than July 1, 2019, but may be in place sooner depending on Fish and Wildlife adopting the regulations.

It’s never too late.

In two days, the big ball in Times Square will drop. Confetti will fly. Champagne will flow. We’ll post new 2014 calendars on walls. It’s been quite a year.

 

American Land Rights has led a lot of fights to protect your private property rights since 1978. ALRA is currently leading the fight against the EPA and the Corps of Engineers attempted takeover of all the waters in the United States and all activities affected by those waters.

 

By stopping the EPA and Corps, American Land Rights protected the private property rights of millions of Americans, most of whom don’t know they’re in jeopardy.

 

We’ve got a divided government. A Republican led House with a Democrat led Senate and the Presidency in the hands of President Obama.

 

That’s way better than one party having the complete control as they did in 2009 when Congress passed the law creating the Affordable Care Act with no Republican support.

 

American Land Rights has continued to fight to stop massive land acquisition by the Federal Government and the expansion of land use controls affecting every American.

 

Americans continue to support a government that lives within the limits of the Constitution. They want a government that serves the people, not a country of Americans beholden to their government.

 

American Land Right’s mission — for nearly 35 years — has had a singular focus; to serve as one of America’s leading defenders of private property rights and the use of Federal lands. American Land Rights has continued to fight for rural America against those who would take your rights and your land and impose excessive land use controls.

 

ALRA is one of a number of “Davids” fighting the “Goliaths” of big government. But our work never ends. As long as those running government agencies from City Hall to Capitol Hill exert power they don’t possess to control the lives and liberties of Americans, ALRA and donors like you are needed to push back.

 

*Here Are More Threats Coming At You*

 

—–*New Endangered Species Act Land Grab* based on habitat for the *Sage Grouse* that could take over millions of acres just like the Spotted Owl did.

—–*More* *New National Monuments;*

—–*New National Blueways program *

*—–National Wildlands land grab;*

—–New Wilderness study areas;

—–Treasured Landscapes Initiative;

—–America’s Great Outdoors Campaign;

—–New BLM Land Use Planning/Wilderness expansion; and —–Expansion of the use of Eminent domain and Condemnation.

—–Expansion of funding for the Land and Water Conservation Fund to wipe out private landowners.

 

It’s never too late to help ALRA with a year-end contribution to cover the valuable consulting advice ALRA provides you throughout the year with our e-mails, letters, faxes and personal phone calls.

 

Time is ticking. December 31 is the last day of the year and the deadline for making a contribution to American Land Rights for 2013.

Your year-end contribution to American Land Rights is a contribution to freedom and individual liberty.

 

Our members send their support all the way from $10 to far larger amounts. Any amount is appreciated and helps the cause. You must do what is in your heart and what you can afford. Please write your check to allow American Land Rights to continue our work and mail it today.

 

Giving to freedom has never been easier. Your contribution for $1,000, $500, $200, $100, $50, $30 or any other amount will help American Land Rights protect you and hold back the flood of bureaucratic red tape the Federal agencies and extreme green groups continue to push.

Just Try and Guess How Many New Laws Take Effect in 2014

Just Try and Guess How Many New Laws Take Effect in 2014

The Blaze.com

As 2013 comes to a close, we turn our attention to 2014 and the nearly 40,000 news laws written by state legislatures set to take effect in the United States next year.

 

Happy New Year: Get Set for These New Laws to Take Effect in 2014

Getty Images

 

From regulations involving “lemon pets” to take-home placentas, 2014 looks like it will be an interesting year for new laws, several of which are poised to take effect on Jan. 1, as rounded up by the Daily Mail

 

In 2014, Americans should say hello to the following rules:

 

Illinois: Tanning & Pets

 

Approximately 200 new laws will go into effect next year in Illinois including a regulation banning minors from using indoor tanning booths. The new law makes Illinois the sixth state to ban people 18 and younger from indoor tanning sessions. The growing trend is part of an attempt to curb the risk of skin cancer.

 

Meanwhile, Illinois pet owners will soon be able to return “lemon pets” to sellers who fail to disclose the animal’s health issues. Further, the law will make it possible for the buyer to demand that the seller reimburse them for the cost of treating the ailing pet’s health issues.

 

Arkansas and Virginia: Voting

 

Starting Jan. 1, Arkansas residents will be required to show photo identification when they go to vote. Proponents of voter ID laws say the regulations are meant to reduce the possibility of voter fraud. For their part, opponents of laws similar to the one scheduled for next year in Arkansas say photo ID rules “disenfranchise” minority voters.

 

Meanwhile, Virginia voters will be able to register online to vote for the first time in starting in 2014.

 

Oregon: Babies

 

Oregon mothers will soon be allowed to take their placentas home from the hospital after childbirth thanks to a new law set to go into effect next year.

 

And if that placenta-carrying mother happens to spy on her way home an adult smoking in his car with a child in the backseat, she can call the police. It will soon be illegal for adult Oregonians to smoke in their cars if there’s a child passenger.

 

California: Gender Identity

 

California schools will soon be required to allow students to play the sports they feel are most “consistent with his or her gender identity,” meaning students can sign up for whatever sport they want to play regardless of their sex at birth. This rule extends to bathroom use as well.

 

Delaware: Sharks

 

It was a long time coming, but the people of Delaware should say goodbye to shark fin soup.

 

A new law will prohibit the sale, distribution, trade and possession of dish’s main ingredient starting 2014.

 

Colorado: Marijuana

 

Thanks to months of negotiations among its lawmakers, Coloradans 21 years and older will finally be able to purchase an ounce of marijuana for recreational use. Purchases can only be made from retailers approved by the state.

 

Connecticut, Rhode Island, New Jersey, New York: Minimum Wage Hikes

 

Minimum wage rates have in recent months been the center of a national debate regarding American workers and “income inequality.”

 

And at least four states have decided to get ahead of the argument by agreeing to raise their wage rate levels in 2014.

 

New York and Rhode Island will require employers to pay $8 an hour. Meanwhile, New Jersey will require its employers to pay employees $8.25 an hour. Connecticut will require its employers to pay workers $8.70 an hour.

Helping vets stay warm

Veterans & soldiers

By Kevin Dickinson
Posted Dec. 27, 2013 @ 10:09 am

Siskiyou Daily News

Yreka — Although the chill might suggest otherwise, winter is less than a week old, and the Veterans Foundation is pooling its efforts to ensure it is a little warmer for needy veterans in the brisk months to come.

“How many veterans do you know? How many veterans are in your many family; how many are your friends? Do any of them need help for one reason or another?” Kent James asked the Siskiyou Daily News during an interview Thursday.

James, along with Jennifer Bryan and a host of community members and professionals, founded the Veterans Foundation in October.

Since then, the foundation has begun working to lay its structure, creating a network of volunteers across the county, and assessing the most critical needs of local veterans to better assist them during difficult times.

One need the foundation is trying to meet as soon as possible is the depletion of firewood resulting from this month’s Arctic weather.

“With this big freeze we just had, people burned through their firewood,” James said.

The foundation has helped veterans, and in one case a veterans’ widow, secure much-needed firewood to keep warm during the harsh wintertime.

“One of those veterans was totally out of firewood when I got there,” James said.

Thanks to the support of individuals associated with the foundation, the veteran was provided some cords to get him through.

He added that, despite the aid, the upcoming months remain a concern, especially if another cold snap swings through.

Mentioning the foundation’s cross-county network, James said the goal was to have wood stockpiled and support ready in every community for quick assistance.

“We’re looking for people who are willing to cut wood, haul wood and split wood,” James said. “Or if they have wood that they want to donate.”

The Veterans Foundation does not yet have the ability to help those requiring oil assistance; however, James said that this doesn’t mean people cannot help each other directly to fulfill that vital need.

“If you know a veteran who needs serious help, if you can’t donate it or part of it, get several people together to take care of it,” James said. “Do it direct.”

In addition to firewood, the Veterans Foundation works closely with the Veterans Service Office to provide veterans information on what benefits and services are available and how to access them.

Looking toward the foundation’s future endeavors, James noted the organization has approached Assemblymember Brian Dahle on introducing a statewide veterans census by county.

It is also supporting a possible two-state retirement home with South Oregon.

Those wishing to receive aid from the Veterans Foundation need to be able to verify their veteran status with a DD Form 214.

Dan Walters: California politicians, interests play ‘economic impact’ game

Economy, State gov

PNP comment: The State o California is over $400 BILLION in debt. But, who would want to mention that little-known fact? — Editor Liz Bowen

Published: Sunday, Dec. 29, 2013 – 12:00 am

One of the games that politicians and interest groups play is called “economic impact.”

The sponsors of a particular project or program, particularly a scheme that involves public funds, pay some consulting firm to gin up a report purporting to prove that it will generate gobs of jobs and other economic benefits.

The consultants employ all sorts of arithmetic tricks to accomplish the predigested result, such as mysterious “multiplier effects” that take one dollar of “investment” (it’s never spending) and magically transform it into $10 worth of benefits.

One of the seamier devices that projects sponsors use has to do with the number of jobs that will result.

Most of us would assume that if 10 workers are hired to do the work, it generates 10 jobs. But the hype mongers count one worker for one year as one job, so if it lasts for 10 years, they claim it would create 100 jobs.

We got a dose of economic puffery recently when John A. Pérez, the speaker of the state Assembly, and Nancy Skinner, who chairs the Assembly’s budget committee, unveiled a “blueprint for a responsible budget” that includes a “jobs investment proposal” (once again, it’s “investment,” not “spending”).

Spending more state money on clean energy projects, parks and schools, creating a state-financed bank to loan money to local governments for public works and using anti-greenhouse gas “cap and trade” fees on business “to reinvest into our communities,” plus expanding various forms of welfare payments, they claimed, would be an economic boon.

How extracting money from California taxpayers and businesses and redirecting it to these other uses would be a net economic gain was not explained.

It was financial alchemy, one supposes.

We are seeing a lot of other “economic impact” hype these days from sponsors of public and semi-public projects, such as the north-south bullet train, a twin tunnel water project in the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta, a football stadium in Los Angeles and new basketball arenas in Sacramento and San Francisco.

But then there’s reality.

A final report on the America’s Cup races in San Francisco reveals that they didn’t have quite the economic impact sponsors had touted.

For one thing, they cost taxpayers an estimated $5.5 million, in net terms, to underwrite the indulgences of wealthy boat owners and their highly paid crews, most of which were from other countries.

And the projected $902 million in private economic impact turned out to be perhaps half that, while private fundraising that was supposed to offset the cost missed its mark by 75 percent.

We should keep the America’s Cup and failing, red ink-saturated sports venue projects in Stockton and Fresno in mind when someone purports to prove that his or her scheme will be a big economic gainer.

Rifle and Shotgun Sales Spike as Californians Prepare for 2014 Law

Many Californians are buying rifles and shotguns in preparation for the long gun registry law set to take effect January 1st. The legislation will require long gun owners to register the make, model and serial number of their weapon. Gun sales have risen 30 to 50 percent in the last week of 2013, according to CBS Sacramento.
