I know the human being and fish can coexist peacefully

Thankfully, it's nearly over.

And yet, the man has managed to surprise me.
According to this astonishing piece, POTUS is establishing the World's largest Marine Protected Area in the Pacific. As usual, I really know very little about the details but it looks like for once, he's managed to withstand both the Vice President and the Fishing Lobby, that in itself a more than remarkable feat.
Time to give Honor to Whom Honor is due - reluctantly!

Speaking of which, I feel that we must also thank him for his legacy of Bushisms.
All were stupid, most were funny, some were even prophetic.
Like this one, from Oct 4, 2001: "There's no doubt in my mind, not one doubt in my mind, that we will fail".

Bula BAD,
Firstly I would like to thank Mike for the comments he put about Aquatrek Beqa[We Are NotAquatrek]
You must be a really a hardworking guy,it takes alot of hard work to create all those lies and the few half truths that were in it.well, i guess thats how you run your businesses. wow, you must have been one spoilt little brat or daddys favourite pet, come on man, you sound like naggy old gossip woman. we would believe in your claims on that article ( we are not aqua trek) once you post some pics or other hard evidence about what aqua trek is doing at lake reef.

You obviously like Aquatrek.
Good on 'ya and good for them!

What is equally obvious is that you really have no clue.
The post was written two years ago in response to a defamatory and dishonest press release by Aquatrek. At that time, the statements were 100% correct.

What has since changed is that Lake has been made a MPA under FLMMA. That in itself is great progress and they need to be commended for that.

Alas, everything else remains unchanged, especially the dishonest marketing.

Have a nice day.

Hi there Da shark,
you're very wrong about me being clueless my friend, that article was posted in feb 2007, lake reef was officially declared mpa in november 2006, so really, that article was wriiten after lake reef was already an mpa,ive been a regular diver in the beqa area before aqua trek and bad started, am also an enthusiastic follower of shark dives. as for the dishonest marketing, i remember reading a bad pamphlet stating shark diving since 1998, and i thought bad only started in 2004.

nice day to you too...
