The Asian Carp are making their way to the Great Lakes, and the Obama Administration doesn't seem to care.
Experts believe this voracious and highly destructive fish is now within 25 miles of Lake Michigan. Once the Great Lakes are breached, the $7 billion commercial and sport fishing industry will be quickly and irrevocably impacted.
Last week, a federal judge turned down a plea from the five Great Lakes states to order the immediate closing of the shipping locks on Chicago-area waterways. The Obama Administration declared it was pleased with the ruling. Pleased! People, you need to be angry about this.
