Feds Force Oyster Factory to Close
Breitbart California, by William Bigelow

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 8/1/2014 11:37:05 PM

According to the San Francisco Chronicle, the closing of the century-old Drakes Bay Oyster Company, once called Johnson’s Oyster Farm, prompted quite an emotional reaction from its fans, with hundreds of them mourning its demise Thursday afternoon. The plaintive melody of “Auld Lang Syne” wafted from a bagpiper´s pipes as fans brought coolers, lemons, hot sauce, and cold beer to join the wake. Drakes Bay’s lease expired Thursday after the National Park Service previously decided it would transform the area into a marine sanctuary. The wholesale operation will stay in business through August, but the retail shop is permanently closed.

For those not family with the geography, Drake´s Bay is at the westernmost point of Marin County.

As my former neighbors, the holier-than-thou-in-every-way Marinites, are fond of saying, "What goes around, comes around, y´know?"

(and they were damned fine oysters, too, sigh)

there were picnic tables where you could sit outside and eat your lunch. chowder and crackers, mostly - for us. and the gulls would swoop in really close to beg or steal. A few very brave gulls would actually land on the picnic table to make certain they were first for any scraps. If you didn´t pay close attention to your food they would steal it instead of waiting.

We still love the CA that was. When we moved there in 1977 it was heaven on earth. A magical place to live and work. Not so much any longer...

Shutting down any oyster factory, farm, restaurant, sandwich maker is blasphemy. One of my earliest memories is the oyster stuffing my dad made at Thanksgiving. Why aren´t oysters a protected species?

I´ve never eaten a clam, I heard people who love them say they are delicious. But I´ll never eat clams. BUT closing down businesses is a very evil thing for America and I´m 100 percent against this evil. Don´t vote for these DEMONRATS or more will close and we will all have nothing left. It will be like Communist China or Russia. We will be standing in lines out in the cold.

President Barack Obama has declined to attend a dedication ceremony in October for a new memorial honoring American veterans who have been disabled fighting for their country in wars, according to sources close to the event. The American Veterans Disabled for Life Memorial (AVDLM), the first such memorial of its kind, is set to be dedicated during a ceremony on Oct. 5 near the National Mall in downtown Washington, D.C. However, Obama, who was first invited to attend the event in January, will not be among those in attendance, according to a source who is familiar with the situation. This

The Hangover: Anheuser-Busch

When Anheuser-Busch speaks, the NFL listens. The leading television sponsor of the last five Super Bowls has chastised the league for its handling of player misbehavior. Video of three-time Pro Bowler Ray Rice knocking out the woman he subsequently married, the indictment of 2012 NFL MVP Adrian Peterson on a child-abuse charge, and the suspension of Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay for driving under the influence with a large amount of narcotics in his car rank as a few of the more embarrassing headlines that have migrated from the sports page to the front page in recent weeks.

NASA picks Boeing and

WASHINGTON – NASA will turn to aerospace giant Boeing and "new space" startup SpaceX to launch U.S. astronauts again from American shores, ending a reliance on Russian Soyuz capsules that began after the last space shuttle landed on Earth three years ago. The selection Tuesday of two private tech companies to catapult the nation´s flagging space program marks a major turning point for NASA, which traditionally has led the nation´s expeditions into space. Boeing and SpaceX will combine to develop the rocketry and crew modules to ferry American astronauts to and from the International Space Station by 2017. The long-anticipated

Iran cannot convince the world that its current ability to enrich uranium is acceptable, the top US negotiator said ahead of new nuclear talks with global powers. After months of intense negotiations the two sides have "identified potential answers to some key questions," Under Secretary of State Wendy Sherman said in a speech at an award-giving ceremony at Georgetown University. But she warned "we remain far apart on other core issues, including the size and scope of Iran´s uranium enrichment capacity." As Iran and world powers prepare for new talks starting on Thursday in New York, Sherman said she expected

ISIS supporters urged to attack

Supporters of the Islamic State terror group are being urged to attack Times Square and other popular American tourist attractions with easily assembled homemade bombs, according to a disturbing report Tuesday. A message posted on an ISIS Web forum lists widely available ingredients needed to build a pipe bomb, and includes photos showing how to combine them into a deadly explosive device, Vocativ reported. The Arabic-language message cites Times Square — the scene of a failed car-bomb attack in 2010 by al Qaeda sympathizer Faisal Shahzad — and the Las Vegas Strip as prime targets, but also suggests striking sites

Obama: Ebola ´Is Spiraling Out Of Control´

President Barack Obama unveiled his plan to tackle the Ebola crisis in West Africa on Tuesday, promising to do far more to tackle the deadly virus he said could result in "hundreds of thousands of people infected" without US intervention. "More than 2,400 men, women, and children are known to have died and we strongly suspect that the actual death toll is higher than that," Obama said in a speech at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta, Georgia. "Hospitals, clinics, and the few treatment centers that do exist have been completely overwhelmed." The president was particularly dire

   

 



 
Democrats now have a 51 percent

Democrats are now (very slightly) favored to hold the Senate majority on Nov. 4, according to Election Lab, the Post´s statistical model of the 2014 midterm elections. Election Lab puts Democrats´ chances of retaining their majority at 51 percent -- a huge change from even a few months ago when the model predicted that Republicans had a better than 80 percent chance of winning the six seats they need to take control. (Worth noting: When the model showed Republicans as overwhelming favorites, our model builders -- led by George Washington University´s John Sides -- warned that the model could and

So the Kentucky Senate race, as Fixer Aaron Blake noted on Twitter, appears to have devolved into a contest over who is holding a gun and how. In his latest salvo, however, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R) has pretty convincingly won the debate. You may recall/do recall/should recall that on Monday, his opponent Alison Lundergan Grimes (D) suggested that McConnell wasn´t a real Kentuckian because he once held an antique rifle in the air. (See above.) The spot featured Grimes shooting skeet while talking about her campaign platform and how she is different than President Obama. Then McConnell responded

Dempsey raises possibility of

The chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff raised the possibility Tuesday that U.S. troops could become involved in ground attacks against the Islamic State, despite repeated pledges to the contrary from President Obama. Army Gen. Martin Dempsey told the Senate Armed Services Committee that U.S. military advisers are helping Iraqi government forces prepare for a major offensive to reclaim territory seized by the Islamic State in recent months. Although the advisers have been assigned primarily to assist with planning and coordination, Dempsey for the first time suggested that they eventually could go into the field on combat missions.

WASHINGTON— Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III was reportedly told by an NFL uniform inspector not to wear his “Know Jesus, Know Peace” t-shirt before Sunday’s postgame press conference. Michael Phillips, the Redskins reporter for the Richmond Times-Dispatch, posted on Twitter that Griffin was told he couldn’t wear the t-shirt because it wasn’t a Nike product. “RGIII was wearing a t-shirt that said ‘Know Jesus, Know Peace.’ NFL Uniform Inspector Tony McGee (former Skins DE) approached Griffin,” Phillips tweeted. “McGee told Griffin he couldn’t wear the shirt because it wasn’t a Nike product.

Nicolle Wallace, who must have been resuscitated back to partial life after a coma-inducing debut as co-host of ABC’s The View, said Tuesday that President Barack Obama appears ineffective as a leader because he does not “love” people. Wallace’s comment came as she and her co-hosts were discussing conservative commentator’s Charles Krauthammer recent remark that Obama is a “narcissist.” Wallace noted that as a former psychiatrist, Krauthammer was “offering a semi-expert opinion” on Obama and compared the president to Vice President Joe Biden who’s widely regarded as a people person.

Former President George W. Bush put together a 48 member coalition for the Iraq War in 2003. 40 of those members supported military operations and 37 provided some number troops. In April 2003, the list was updated to include 49 countries, though it was reduced to 48 after Costa Rica objected to its inclusion. Of the 48 states on the list, three contributed troops to the invasion force (the United Kingdom, Australia and Poland). An additional 37 countries provided some number of troops to support military operations after the invasion was complete. Despite these numbers the liberal media continues to push the lie

The Obama administration is preparing to introduce major steps to phase out production of a popular chemical coolant used in refrigerators and air conditioners, citing growing evidence that the substance is contributing to the warming of the planet. The White House will announce on Tuesday a series of voluntary commitments by some of the country’s largest chemical firms and retailers to move rapidly away from R-134a and similar compounds used in nearly every office, home and automobile in the country, according to current and former U.S. officials familiar with the effort.

The Department of Labor coordinated with the White House on whether or not to release hidden portions of former Labor Secretary Hilda Solis’ schedule as Solis battled an FBI investigation into her illegal fundraising for President Obama.

There’s a lot of competition for Barack Obama’s biggest lie. The man who could assure the American public with a straight face over thirty times that they could keep their doctor under his health plan, when he knew that to be completely false, is one hellluva fibber. But execrable as that serial prevarication may have been, it doesn’t hold a proverbial candle to his most recent whopper — that the Islamic State is not Islamic — not to mention its corollary, or perhaps subsidiary lie, that real religions do not indulge in murder. Islam has been doing that pretty much straight
