I know a farmer who is paid by the Feds NOT to farm. Any one know how this situation came about in our country?
Don’t give them any ideas!

It appears to be a study for the rationale for higher license fees. Read how the story is worded.

Hey Charlie ... gett'a load o'THIS ... !
Gee, the same government has been trying to destroy the small,one boat commercial watermen for years....guess the sport fishing industry isn’t giving enough $ to the Obamanation

Jeeze! Barry thinks we’re as stupid as his base!
