Drakes Bay Oyster Company Killed by Bureaucratic Fiat

Share

Imagine that you run a business.  Also, imagine that the business had been in existence for nearly 100 years.  Then, imagine with the stroke of a pen, an unelected bureaucrat ended your likelihood.  I did happen, the Drakes Bay Oyster Company was killed off.   Moonbattery has a video describing the families plight, as well as the intentional lies used by the government to shut it down.

In the end, the government did close down the business. And, apparently, the government simply made up “evidence” to justify it.

I would also reinforce the point made by the scientist in the video. Once people think that the ends justify the means, all sorts of horrific things can happen.

    Stories like this make me sick. They did everything right and still lost. This is what the progressives and environmentalist call social justice and environmental justice. There is no justice in ahy of it.

    This is just disgusting but I fear it is going to get more frequent. This is a little off topic, but not really; I am an officer of the Plaistow Fish and Game Club and I learned over the weekend that we can expect to gain new members because the Haverhill Fish and Game Club has been forced to stop all outdoor shooting. When the Haverhill club opened many, many years ago it wasn’t in a residential area but over the years houses have been built around the club. Even though these people knew they were buying houses near a gun club they have been trying to shut it down because they didn’t like the noise. This has been going on for years and it had been unsuccessful so recently they changed their tactics and started fighting the club for environmental issues, they claimed the lead was bad for the nearby pond and they won. I don’t see how the club can exist for much longer and it is a sad day when we see these people forcing others to adhere to their radical beliefs.
