Excerpt

Today, the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries, in coordination with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Fisheries, has ordered an emergency reopening of all fishing in 559 square miles of state waters east of the Mississippi River previously closed due to the BP oil spill. With today's action 92 percent of state waters are open.

Commercial fishing will reopen immediately today, September 23, to the harvest of finfish, crabs and shrimp in all state waters east of the Mississippi River north of the northern shore of Pass a Loutre and 29 degrees 12 minutes 40 seconds north latitude. The openings also include the recreational harvest of shrimp and crabs.

LDWF Secretary Robert Barham ordered these openings following the completion of comprehensive testing by the FDA. The FDA has advised that following extensive sensory testing and analytical chemistry results, the fish tissue samples tested from these previously closed areas are safe for consumption.

    Obama care passed 6 months ago today. Codex Alimentarius was passed into law on 6/10/10, the most dangerous bill ever signed giving control of your DAMN FOOD, VITAMINS, & SUPPLEMENTS to the GOVERMENT! While the media was silent and the oil was gushing. I HAVE DONE MY BEST TO WARN PEOPLE AND ALL I GET IS BLANK STARES OR DUMBAS_ COMMENTS. CAN'T YOU FUKING SEE YOU ARE BEING EXTERMINATED? GO AHEAD, EAT THE SEAFOOD, OR THE PORK THAT'S BEING FED GOM SEAFOOD. IT'S SAFE. BREATHE THE AIR, IT'S SAFE. THE DRINKING WATER IS CONTAMINATED, BUT GO AHEAD, IT'S SAFE. PUT ALL THE ABOVE TOGETHER AND THINK ABOUT IT! IT'S NOT ROCKET SCIENCE! AMERICA AS A WHOLE HAS BEEN SO DUMBED DOWN PEOPLE CANNOT EVEN THINK FOR THEMSELVES OR SEE DANGER WHEN IT'S STARING THEM IN THE FACE! I USED TO THINK IT WAS SAD, NOW I'M JUST DISGUSTED.

    I'm right there with you premurder. It's eugenics, depopulation, sterilization, land grabs... but listen, there are a lot of us out here, thinking like this. Don't give up. The energy behind truth is far greater than the energy behind lies. The people of the gulf aren't stupid. they won't be able to keep this one under wraps, it's just gonna take a little more time.
