Well, er, because people will be thinking about the economy and fall out of their boat. That's why.

Obama has taken so much money from the people, not many can afford to up-keep their boats properly. More sinking and crashes are going to be seen

The economy? Seriously? If that's the case, people better quit fishing, driving heavy equipment and using gas powered lawn equipment. I thought the reason would be that people need to fish because they can't afford as many groceries. Totally stupid to blame this on the economy!

Yeah.... if only we could have the booming economy that existed when Bush left the whitehouse...Remember how everyone was secure in their jobs, and had plenty of disposable income in their pockets? You don't remember how good things were when Bush left? Oh, sorry.... I was thinking of Clinton.

also with the lower lake level, more boats are going to hit rocks and debris and sink. the low lake level is due to the state selling the water, and the state is having to sell the water becasue the feds are taking all the money. the feds are taking all the money because Obama has spent it all. Its a trickle up effect!

You people are all idiots. I was being sarcastic. This accident has nothing to do with Obama or the economy. The feds are NOT taking CA's money. That's insane. Its the other way around. If you want to know who spent all the money, look at the president BEFORE Obama and the 2 wars he started. Oh yeah, and the tax cuts he gave everybody to make it even worse. Obama SAVED this country from a depression. You should all be thankful.

Anyway, since both of us are Morons, here's how it works. California sends shiploads of money back to Washington,D.C. A small aluminum boat brings California back its "share".
