In October 2005, A O U passed 500,000 hits , (honest numbers too, not one of those bogus counters). It took 6 months to make the first 1,000 (September 1996) and nearly a year to 10,000 (February 1997). Traffic has been increasing every month and now AOU is doing over 4,000 hits some months and climbing. Not too shabby, I'd say for a private unadvertised and unfunded site.

Anal Orifi Unwelcome Here

If you are uncertain of your status,
please check yourself against the lists below.
Find out just what any people
will quietly submit to

and you have
the exact measure

of the injustice and wrong
which will be imposed on them.

Frederick Douglas


Unquestionably Anal Orifi.

  • Any member of the National Marine Fishery Service (NMFS).
  • Any university types getting NMFS grants.
  • The Doctor Haskins of the world.
  • ALL of Sea Grant.
If you fit into any one or more of the above categories there is no question but what you DON'T belong here. Your input is neither solicited nor welcome. Nothing you will find here will be of any benefit for you (at least I sure as hell hope it won't) and may, in fact, even cause you to have doubt in your belief systems. You are living in a self righteous delusionary world, are firmly convinced of the RIGHTNESS of your position and truly cannot afford to have it challenged.

Nor do I have any interest in hearing from you.

(Note- If you are NOT one of the above and think it is immature petulant sour grapes, PLEASE check out the "Paper printed in the National Fisherman" or "The Fallacy of Scientific Evidence" or "Vindication" or "Overfishing" (addresses on left) before jumping to any hasty conclusions.)

Probable Anal Orifi

  • State Fishery Managers subsidized by NMFS - Decent people for the most part (with one or two notable exceptions here in NJ) but usually heavily indebted to NMFS for funding, support, etc. therefore generally unable and/or not allowed to be objective in their viewpoints and actions.

  • Tenured university types with an opinion and other "Hot Tub Evangelists" - Talk about insufferably arrogant blowhards shooting their mouths off from a safe haven with nothing to lose. They often remind me of the virgin who is an expert on sex..... ("I've read all the literature." Proclaimed in a deep pompous sonorous tone.

  • Producers of Environmental Specials who take the obligatory cheap shot at Commercial Fishermen. The Absolute Nadir of Political Correctness. Sanctimonious feel gooders ("who've also read all the literature") salving a vaguely guilty conscious by lashing out at straw men created by NMFS. "We can't do anything about urban or agricultural runoff, the paving/building over of the estuaries, industrial discharges, killing water from power plants....... , so we'll just take a cheap shot at somebody (who, incidently,has been the least culpable in the perceived destruction). It makes us feel better and keeps people's minds off the real problems."

  • Pompous pontificating "Save-The-Worlders" and other Eco-Nazis - All those extremist and alarmist Green Peacers, et al who are composed, in some (or at least the loudest) part by the above, and whose biggest trip is making the 6 o'clock news. Or raising money for the cause (which only incidentally has some pretty hefty 6-figure salaries at the top), or ....

    (Note- Received verbatim from a web surfer: "Long ago I tried being a 'greenie' and was a Greenpeace employee - it came as a nasty and educational shock one night when I was quoting the Greenpeace campaign figures and was pulled up short by a professional Fisherman who showed me how the way the info was presented was quite open to misinterpretation (shall we say) - It took me a while to figure out that the organisation pays it's big salaries to professional protestors - because when I went our national headquarters to try to accurately research what I was trying to talk about there was no accessible data - just a small collection of press clippings.

    "Needless to say it didn't take too long to see that if cameras weren't there greenpeace weren't - and the dose of reality therapy that fisherman provided made it a lot easier for me to leave Greenpeace - I still agree with the principles espoused by Professor Paul Erlich(I can never remember how that's spelt) but as YET have not enough education to find my own way of doing something useful - I may be land rather than sea based in my concerns but I am glad you take the effort to present your views here - you're bookmarked and I'll be back!")

    Note - Eco-Nazis are "Proscribers" - Their agenda is "Don't do it (unless WE regulate it) and we don't care what the consequences are to you, to your family, to your town, to your way of life, to ....."

    True Environmentalists are "Prescribers" - Their agenda is "You're doing bad stuff that hurts me. How about you and I sit down and figure out how you can do your thing without causing as much damage to me. That way there's enough room for both of us."

    I think of myself as a True Environmentalist and you will find a lot of "Prescriptions" on this site.

  • People who are uncomfortable thinking for themselves. They who unquestionably believe the propaganda put out by NMFS and its handmaidens and remain blissfully, comfortably and dangerously ignorant of the real truths in the world. It makes life so much easier to not have to think. Practitioners of The Pangloss Syndrome.
  • Rabid anti/pro-(Abortion, Censorship, Profits, Growth) and other compulsive controller types. Jeez, what a bore.

  • Flamers and Flamees without a sense of humor. Self explanatory. Those who do flame (and/or respond) with humor add oregano and jalapeno to our lives, and often bring light and knowledge an ignorant world.

    C A U T I O N -

    From this point on you may encounter language that some will find offensive. (note- not salacious, merely descriptive). You will find no pornography here, although you can read of far fouler obscenities.


    Well, if you've come this far, I expect it's only fair to let you know who I am and what this page is all about. My name is Gösta H. Lovgren (more widely known as That Fucking Swede in much of my universe).

    I am completely without guile and subterfuge. What you see is what you get. There are no ulterior motives nor do I want to start any militias (though I do believe our government is in the initial stages of incipient failure and needs a good enema or it will eventually collapse of its own weight.)

    Generally it will be about my experiences as a born-raised-retired Commercial Fisherman that began in the days of "Wooden Boats and Iron Men" (earning my first "full share" at 9 years old) and have seen it (d)evolve into what it is today - an industry populated by greedy opportunists fawning to (and in some cases manipulating) an even greedier, more hypocritical self-serving jealous government regulatory agency.

    No time consuming graphics displays are planned or anticipated (Well there are a few but they are absolutely necessary {grin}). What is planned (at this stage - April -1996) is to upload many papers, perspectives, opinions I have either written or come across and saved over the years. They will run the gamut from the deviousness of our government ( and the fears I have for my country) to politically incorrect economic papers (Keiretsu and Russian Land reform specifically) to just dumb humor that has tickled me (homilies and bromides included).

    Here's the good stuff:



    (Note- Don't try to read everything here at one or two sittings. There's an eclectic mix and a lot to absorb. Read one or two, take some time to think about it and come back at a later time and try some more, or email me and show me the error of my ways, correct me if you find me factually incorrect, criticize me if warranted (I'm sure it won't be {grin}).

    Some of the papers carry some pretty heavy economic analysis that is presented in a deceptively simple format. Don't be fooled. Think about it.

    If you have valid criticism, send it on. We're all adults here . Understand one thing clearly though. I consider NMFS, and its fellow travelers, as demonstrated enemies of the fishing industry and by extension our country. I make no apologies and feel no obligation to treat them civilly nor to respond. I will (and do) respond to all others though.


    Swede's Sshtuff


    Just two FACTS to keep in mind:

    1. After 30+ years of domestic "fishery management" total US seafood imports rose from about 25% in 1975 to nearly 70% in 1995, and are still rising.)

    2. There has NEVER NEVER NEVER EVER been a fish species or fishery that has been damaged beyond recovery by a commercial fishery or commercial fishermen. That is a sophisticated fabrication put out by people who know better (for their own interests and agendas) perpetuated by people who don't want to know better (for their own interests and agendas).

    Due to a request from a Christian Grandmother (and fellow Ponder), the papers that contain profanity will have a "sanitized" version prefixed by(S). I use strong language to convey strong anger, even outrage, that some people find offensive. For those people I offer the sanitized versions.

    Also comments in BLUE have been received by readers.)

    The way things work if you are in civil service
    is that you have much more to

    LOSE

    by screwing up than you have to

    GAIN

    by doing excellently.

    Therefore your #1 goal in bureaucratic life
    is to make sure you don't screw up.

    The easiest way to do that is become adept at both:

    passing the buck and delay.

    This is the way most of government is forever
    fated to work in comparison to private industry
    with its different drives and incentives.
