White House Names Asian Carp Czar (Not a joke!)
http://blogs.laweekly.com/squidink/fish/asian-carp-czar-named/ ^

Posted on 09/09/2010 10:05:24 AM PDT by Red in Blue PA

We have drug czars, energy czars, actual Russian czars (well, we used to), and -- perhaps a mark that we maybe need a nomenclature czar -- we now have an Asian carp czar. Yesterday The White House announced that a former leader of the Indiana Department of Natural Resources and the Indiana Wildlife Federation would become the first "Asian carp czar." John Goss will oversee the near $80 million federal response to the Asian carp, a particularly invasive species that is threatening the Great Lakes.

You can’t even take a carp in a stream without Big Brother getting involved.

So should I expect them to come knocking on my door to inspect my backyard pond?

Are they going to fine me if there's too much algae, or if my shebunkins aren't looking happy enough?

Oh I know. The Asian carp is a threat to our fishing industry..no joke. But you have to admit..Obama seems to take this ‘threat’ more seriously than the drug war in Mexico spilling over our borders or terrorism on our own shores. Do we have an Islamic terrorism czar yet? This whole thing makes Obama look even more foolish than he already does....LOL!

More foolish he looks the lower his numbers.

I’m lining up for the Porgy Czar position. It’s a lesser position than Carp Czar, but bigger than Guppy Czar. The least desirable of all is Krill Czar, although the title sounds impressive (likely because it sounds a lot like Krell).

Obama has named more Czars than the Russians ever had. Office space for them will become so cramped that they'll soon be packed in like czardines.

What does an Asian carp czar look like?

I think that since this is America, an Asian carp czar looks like a person from the Far East (Korea, China or Japan, etc). If this was the UK, and Asian carp czar would probably look like someone from India or Pakistan.

To tell you the truth, I’ve been a little worried about the Asian carps. But I don’t think it calls for a czar... a duke, maybe, but not a czar.

Foolish is hiring a great lakes czar, putting invasive species under his jurisdiction, and then hiring a carp czar.

More money evaporating down the drain.

The asian carp should have been dealt with a long time ago but Obama stepped into the court fight and made it go the way his Chi town homies wanted.

Well, yes, I think it is quite the understatement that the asian carp should have been dealt before they were, what, a couple of miles from the Great Lakes via the Chicago River.

People simply aren’t paying attention.

I expected at that at least one voice would ask why we need a carp czar when invasive species are among the listed jurisdiction of the great lakes czar. Cameron Davis got something like a 20 billion dollar budget as great lakes czar and I haven’t heard a word out of him since. (He’s a Chicago homie BTW)

I’m also a litte confused why we would choose two czars from the two states with the least stake in the great lakes.
