Lobster Fisherman Get Ass Raped AGAIN!!!!

Posted on Thu, Apr 30, 2009 at 3:43 PM

Jesus Christ, when are these poor bastards going to be able to earn a decent living, without having to choke on all the bullshit rules and taxes the government seems to like imposing onthem at will. $40 for a license to sell lobsters at the side of the road, eh? Is the government going to require all the farmers in the valley to have a license when they sell their corn asnd pumpkins at the side of the road on the Bedford Highway like they do every year (maybe they already do, but that would be news to me). How is charginbg these poor buggers $40 going to ensure the publics safety andput some kind of quality control on lobster sales? Keeping records...yeah right. It's total and utter BULLSHIT to say that if you sell your lobsters from the side of the road, you need a forty dollar license, but if you sell it off your boat at the wharf, your exempt. That makes no fucking sense at all. I for one personally made great use of the fact that they were selling lobster in the parking lot around the corner from my house, and as afr as quality control, as long as the little bastards are still moving when they put them in the bag, I'm happy! If there going to apply a bullshit law, it should be applied to all, not just a few. fact of the matter is, it shouldn't be on the books at all. FUCK OFF GOVERNMENT and stop keeping the fisherman down!!
