Mar 26, 2014 Full story: KCRA-TV Sacramento 32

Millions of salmon are headed to the ocean in tanker trucks instead of swimming because of drought-caused lower river levels.

Wish they would do that here in Canada where the Indian has overfished to the point of salmon depletion. It is not the gillnetters who overfish because they have always had a limit. "The Indian does not, they over fish, they throw hundreds of fish away, they do not fish for personal purposes like feeding family, but fish and over fish as they say because they can.

Oh, and naturally these widespread, secular droughts are not the spawn of climate change, right, conservatives?

It's a good thing that there wasn't the usual bureaucracy f#$%-up where the fish might have wound up deported to mexico.

Harney I have my doubts about that comment, Indians are not known to waste anything -but-
then it could be they're getting even for the way they were treated by the one's that ran them off their land???

Actually HH, that is what the media and the politically correct would like everyone to believe, but Indians are well known for wasting things. I have lived near many reservations and Indians all my life, the reserves are a wasteland of endless wrecked vehicles, land, homes, I have also been witness many times to the Indian filling their trunks of cars etc with hundreds of salmon, selling them illegally, and also have been witness to them throwing them by the wayside when they are more than a few days old, and all have not been sold or consumed. Most Indians I know would rather have a burger than salmon..lol! It is true. They are not the enviromentalists people or should I say sheeple are lead to believe. Maybe a handful are, but like any race, that is the given.
Getting even????? There were many Indians when the white man landed, funny a fierce and strong fighting people could be "ran" off their land. Funny they made no land claims until the land was developed!!! They say they were here first, but cannot prove it, the only history they can relate is what they white man has recorded in last 200 hundred years, since arrival of them. The Indian claims to have been here for thousands of years, what the hell were they doing in all that time? Barely eating, pillaging, warring on other tribes etc. I am not prejudiced of these people, just tired of the false bravado they are given, the whining, the head in sand of reality of these people, and also tired of them getting, and never giving. Time to end the gravy train, I am tired of supporting these people. Strong people stand on their own, not take handouts, or whine of how hard done by they were. What about the black man, they were taken from their land. A lot of them seemed to have bettered their situation by moving on and doing for themselves and standing up for themselves. Just saying amigo!

Yes I can believe that, similar to the modern times white man.
Maybe 'we' were a bad influence? LMAO
MY experience comes based from my grandfather which was filled in by his grandfather. PopPa may have been somewhat biased since he was
a quarter Indian.
But that brings up you might be biased some too?
No, I did not take on any of my grandfather's physical traits.
Ahead full of white hair at age 80, high cheek bones, Indian nose,
and alittle white lightn'n now and then.
I guess I did take after him in some respects. LOL

I am half Cree blood on my mother's side, her great great grandmother was a medicine woman. My youngest brother is the one out of us all that really looks native. All races have been wronged in life, even the white race, more so maybe than any other, but we seemed to overcome those and move on to a better future. I am just glad to see the fish replenished, no matter how. Also I have heard that the Indian has restrictions on salmon fishing now as well, lets hope they abide as we are all ruled under the same laws. But in some cases, the Indian thinks not. I just see a lot of the Indian getting but not giving in this Country, and the balance between all Canadians is not equal. When they pay taxes, then they got a claim, until then, put up...
Wow a full head of hair at 80,, that is awesome! LOL! I prefer mamajuana to whitel lightning,,lol.

On second thought, the ride was probably free. Or in exchange for a little tail.

We don't owe them anything either FTW. It is time this war on "WRONGS" is over. It has now become a way of life, a career move etc. Was not me, nor my parents, nor my children involved in this. That is the way things were then, nothing we can do about it, or change. The main thing is to move on and do for yourself. Like many have done. Really we took nothing from the, as they really had nothing to take. Land is for any who can pay for it, or fight for it.
The list is long as to races that have been wronged in history. But as they say, those that whine the loudest get the mostest. I could have a status card, but I don't. This view I have is shared by many people.

Replenish our salmon, and cod, and then put limits on ALL who fish.

That's the thing. The Natives don't really get anything. I agree with you to a point but Natives aren't really given anything. There are other groups who have long been over compensated and to say the Natives have been given anything is a lie.

Not a liar. It is true, don't know about the USA, but here in Canada, they get a free education, they do not have to pay for school, the kids get money as long as they stay in school, etc, they get free tuition for trades etc, they get free medical, they get free housing, money given to reserves for improvements, but...they do not see a lot of it, as most chiefs take quite a bit of the money for themselves, much like our politicians. I don't know about now, but they have always got no restrictions on hunting, or fishing. In some towns where there are wood mills, the white men have been given walking papers, even though they have worked there longer. Really, they have and still do get more than enough. Yes others have been overcompensated in this lifetime too, the Japanese, the Jews. Why? Why are some people set up as special groups, set up above others? I do not understand this. Like I said we all races have been wronged in the past.
But lets just suffice it to say, we are going to butt heads over this..so lets agree to disagree, and still come out as friends. Okay? I hope so, as I do love your posts.

Hitchhiking is out. When you don't have thumbs, it limits your migration options.

(So long and thanks for all the fish)
