    Trump should fire entire FBI.

    Better still have no FBI or CIA..... use Vlad’s FSB. Trump prefers to believe them anyhow. Think of all the money the US would save!

    DEBT, DEBT, DEBT

    In most countries of the free world, including Australia: A convicted fraud or an undischarged bankrupt would be legally barred from running for any high public office. Trump is both, many times over. A leader who prefers the statement of a known lying head of an enemy authoritarian country to the advice given to him by his (own selected) security advisors would be regarded as untrustworthy and hostile, if not a traitor. A politician whose campaign manager, personal lawyer and accountant who have all been convicted or plead guilty to criminal charges by acting directly or otherwise on his behalf would at the very least, have to stand down until he was cleared of any wrong doing. A leader who openly ridicules the justice system, whilst doing deals with his convicted campaign manager for his own “innocent” defence would be criminally perverting the course of justice. A leader who stays, entertains dignitaries and plays golf at his own establishments and charges the tax payer would be deemed as having a conflict of interests and receiving emoluments and would have to step down or be stripped of any high public office. And pay back the money.

    X 24 class is a simplified J 24

    Second hand J24s are cheap enough, instead of messing around with minutia, which still cost money, go for the bigger main and scrap the Genoa. Savings on sail replacement will pay for the mods pretty quickly. And you woud have a faster better balanced all round boat.

    X 24 class is a simplified J 24

    As you are modifying a standard J24, just get a two foot longer boom and mainsail foot. Plenty of helm balance then and faster all round....

  9. Funny that, I thought it was the other way round? Russia was doing it long before Trump could speak (properly)..... That and how to turn a democracy into a one party dictatorship 101. Trump was pretty poor on that, so the Russians are helping with online tutoring...... Although Trump was top of the class for barefaced lying 101, he has a natural aptitude for it, it comes easy to him.

    You are absolutely right, apologies. You are beyond help.

    My understanding is he has been convicted/ fined at least twice for frauds relating to Trump University, and at least four bankruptcies, none of which have been discharged. Happy to be corrected, not that it makes much difference in the totality. https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/2016/live-updates/general-election/real-time-fact-checking-and-analysis-of-the-first-presidential-debate/fact-check-has-trump-declared-bankruptcy-four-or-six-times/?utm_term=.c093125c14d7 And you are aware of all the other stuff which could be heading his way with regards to charitable trusts etc. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Legal_affairs_of_Donald_Trump Best POTUS ever.... Everyone is saying it.

    America already is.... In most countries of the free world, including Australia: A convicted fraud or an undischarged bankrupt would be legally barred from running for any high public office. Trump is both, many times over. A leader who prefers the statement of a known lying head of an enemy authoritarian country to the advice given to him by his (own selected) security advisors would be regarded as untrustworthy and hostile, if not a traitor. A politician whose campaign manager, personal lawyer and accountant who have all been convicted or plead guilty to criminal charges by acting directly or otherwise on his behalf would at the very least, have to stand down until he was cleared of any wrong doing. A leader who openly ridicules the justice system, whilst doing deals with his convicted campaign manager for his own “innocent” defence would be criminally perverting the course of justice. A leader who stays, entertains dignitaries and plays golf at his own establishments and charges the tax payer would be deemed as having a conflict of interests and receiving emoluments and would have to step down or be stripped of any high public office. And pay back the money. Anyone: a) With such a high disregard and turnover of his own selected staff shows dysfunctional leadership. b) Who is an inarticulate, impulsive, erratic, habitual liar and serial philanderer shows a complete lack of any commonly accepted (pick any religion you like) ethics and morality, sets a poor standard for public office, if not private, behaviour. c) Who shows such a complete lack of tact, diplomacy, respect or care for neighbouring and allied countries is unstatesmanlike. Any one of these traits in a free (great?) democratic country, should disqualify someone from selection by his party, let alone be tolerated as leader. Trump has all of them and more...... And then there is the gerrymandering, vote rigging, even asking for foreign county interference..... YCMTSU.

    When We All Vote

    Not to mention that a political party chose Mickey Mouse as their Presidential candidate and continue to support him no matter what now that he is POTUS. YCMTSU.
