Shit, that sounds a lot like the Affordable Cow Pie Act.

This does not include taxes, trailers, towing fees, licensing and registration fees, fuel, docking and storage fees, maintenance or repair costs.

This law has been passed, because until now, typically only wealthy and financially responsible people have been able to purchase boats. This new law ensures that every American can now have a "affordable" boat of their own, because everyone is "entitled" to a new boat. If you purchase your boat before the end of the year, you will receive 4 "free" life jackets; not including monthly usage fees.

In order to make sure everyone purchases an affordable boat, the costs of owning a boat will increase on average of 250-400% per year. This way, wealthy people will pay more for something that other people don't want or can't afford to maintain. But to be fair, people who cant afford to maintain their boat will be regularly fined and children (under the age of 26) can use their parents boats to party on until they turn 27; then must purchase their own boat.

If you already have a boat, you can keep yours (just kidding; no you can't). If you don't want or don't need a boat, you are required to buy one anyhow. If you refuse to buy one or cant afford one, you will be regularly fined $800 until you purchase one or face imprisonment.

Failure to use the boat will also result in fines. People living in the desert; ghettos; inner cities or areas with no access to lakes are not exempt. Age, motion sickness, experience, knowledge nor lack of desire are acceptable excuses for not using your boat.

A government review board (that doesn't know the difference between the port, starboard or stern of a boat) will decide everything, including; when, where, how often and for what purposes you can use your boat along with how many people can ride your boat and determine if one is too old or healthy enough to be able to use their boat. They will also decide if your boat has out lived its usefulness or if you must purchase specific accessories,(like a $500 compass) or a newer and more expensive boat.

Those that can afford yachts will be required to do so...its only fair. The government will also decide the name for each boat. Failure to comply with these rules will result in fines and possible imprisonment.

Government officials are exempt from this new law. If they want a boat, they and their families can obtain boats free, at the expense of tax payers. Unions, bankers and mega companies with large political affiliations ($$$) are also exempt.

If the government can force you to buy health care, they can force you to buy a boat....or ANYTHING else..

Yeah...it's that stupid...

I'm sorry, your current boat does not possess blue water capability, sufficiently large fuel tanks, or a comprehensive ELINT suite.

As such, your boat is not seaworthy, and cannot be used. However, call today about the 100' yachts we have available.

The ACA isn't about "health care" it's about "health insurance." Insurance that has no guarantee of being accepted by any doctor or hospital.

It irritates me that people conflate health insurance and health care. If people weren't so goddamn stupid they would have known before this piece of shit was passed that you CAN see a doctor without insurance, that you CAN have cheap high-deductible insurance for catastrophic events, and that you CAN have a pre-tax Health Savings Account to pay for the doctor's visits that you don't have insurance to pay for.

This is the same Goverment that destroyed the boating industry with the luxury tax in 1990. Closed the local boat factor. They made really nice boats. I worked there one summer.

You'd better put a "this is like an Onion thing" disclaimer on that, or some people here might think it's real and miss the humor.

As for me, I guess I'm off to buy a boat. Though, I'm not sure if the boats available now will be like the ones available when the deadline draws near.

You would think that in this day and age, with all of the information out there and the many ways there are to gather it, people wouldn't be as damned dumb as they are.

It seems the only time people are concerned about facts and data is when it comes to stripping away our 2nd Amendment rights, then they're all over that shit.

Great post OP, buy your friend a beer, or whatever beverage they prefer.
