Fishing Opener – Elite have “played out” the rough fish

Fishing Opener - in Minnesota, the land of 10,000 lakes and taxes, is upon us. This weekend Minnesota Lakes, Rivers and Streams will be filled with anglers looking for a great shore lunch. (And working on excuses to be fishing during the opener rather than doting on mother for Mother’s Day – Happy Mother’s Day moms J) Fisherman, Fisherwomen & Fisherfolks will be angling to play out and land their trophy trout, walleye or other monster trophy fish.

Definition of “Trophy Fish”: Trout, Walleye or other desirable Game fish that Anglers (Fishermen, Fisherwomen, Fisherfolks) want to catch and suitable for mounting. (Game Fish as opposed to Invasive Species and Rough Fish that most anglers do not want to catch like Carp and Suckers.)

Definition of “Running”: A fish swimming, moving and/or maneuvering after being hooked, in a manner intended to make escape possible.

Definition of “Play out”: The original definition of this term came from the activity of fishing. Playing out, Played out, Play out refers to letting out line while a fish runs and exhausts itself, before reeling it in. This avoids the fish breaking the line while running.

Usually this requires a series of events consisting of:

    1) Hooking the fish with a jerk of the rod;
    2) The hook fish then “running” to escape;
    3) Giving the fish slack in the line so it does not break the line while running;
    4) The fish tiring and exhausting itself and resting until exhaustion passes and it feels reinvigorated;
    5) Reeling in the fish while it is exhausted and not “running”;
    6) The fish becoming reinvigorated and running again
    7) Repeat steps 2 to 6 until the fish gives up or is close enough to shore or the boat to be landed or netted.

Essentially the fish goes through a series of maneuvers aimed at achieving its goal of escape but actually do nothing but exhaust itself, and make itself easier to be caught.

The Fishing Opener brings to mind the strategy of the two major political parties in managing the politics of our nation. To begin with, the two major political parties no longer look upon WE THE PEOPLE (aka rank and file Americans) as citizens. Instead the 2 major political parties look upon us as livestock; Livestock to be managed and manipulated to the benefit of the of the largest and/or most powerful campaign contributors. (We never lived in a Democracy. The USA was founded as a constitutionally-limited, Representative Republic. We now live in a Plutocracy – Government by, and Justice to, the highest bidder.)

In Closing:

Thank you, my fellow citizens, for taking your valuable time to read and reflect upon what is written here.

Please join with me in mutually pledging to each other and our fellow citizens our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor to our mutual endeavors of restoring liberty and economic opportunity to WE THE PEOPLE as our Founding Fathers envisioned and intended.

This article is written with the same intentions as Thomas Paine I seek no leadership role. I seek only to help the American People find their own way using their own “Common Sense”


Keep Fighting the Good Fight!

The Conundrum: WE THE PEOPLE are forced to work part time without compensation for the cause of #liberty with what is left over of our time, money and energy, while our #Government works full time with compensation and funded with our money for the cause of #Tyranny.
