Our Klamath Basin Water Crisis
Upholding rural Americans' rights to grow food,
own property, and caretake our wildlife and natural resources.
11/25/06: Dear Mr. Secretary:
Below this message is attached the latest on the West Coast Salmon Disaster Aid available to displaced Oregon Salmon Trollers in two counties.
I must say you were able to drag your feet like all good bureaucrats. You said a lot, you did nothing! Shame on you!
Now is the time to get off the dime and make the disaster aid package happen that provides "Direct Payment To" displaced West Coast Salmon Trollers for their loss.
I won't go into the details as to what caused the disaster, that has been made quite clear and it is also quite clear that you and your assistant secretaries don't have a clue.
You now have members of the Oregon Salmon Troll Fleet about to be evicted from their houses and their utilities about to be turned off.
Mr. Secretary you might try it yourself. Move out of your home until May 1 2007 when there might be another opportunity to fish for salmon. Off with the lights, heat, all your conveniences and on to someone's boat here in Oregon. I'm sure an Oregon Salmon Troller would move you right on if they haven't lost their boat already and aren't behind in their moorage.
You Mr. Secretary really disappoint alot of people out here in the West.
Push the Disaster Legislation through Mr. Bush's Lame Duck session so the West Coast and the Nation can get on with real business instead of monkey business.
503 537 0976
P.S. Those people on the cc list are either working to fix your debacle or they helped cause it. They will be able to determine if they are working to fix it or if they helped cause it. I know who they are, do you?
