  1. Regarding the Fish and Wildlife bills. It’s not enough for the non-consumptive users of the fruits of our Fish and Wildlife policies to use our GMAs, fishing accesses, even our private property, and not have a fee involved. They want to be able to tell us how they expect us to utilize renewable natural resources on that land. There was a time in Vermont when you could have a civil discussion, have disagreements, and part as friends. That has changed in this state. Those that disagree with the way things are done, and have been done in this state for generations, are now using the legislature, and the courts to change the state that they have moved to. It’s sad to see a legislature that is almost 2/3s composed of naturalized Vermonters pushing the agendas associated with their liberal home states they came here from. Makes you wonder if they liked the policies of the state they came from so much, why did they emigrate here ? Is it the little fish in a big pond, vs. the big fish in a little pond theory ? It is probably a good thing that they speak English, or they’d expect us to learn their language. Sounds like the old, what’s mine is mine and what’s your’s is mine.
