    Donnie Has Another Stroke

    He's a douche and Im sure up to no good, but I'm having a hard time seeing where a large international hotel corporation doing business in China and having a Chinese bank account is going to raise much outrage over a few million dollars. Need more details. I think its easier to explain this politically than 'Where's Hunter?'. Wilbur Ross was actually partnered in a large U.S. based company with Chinese financiers as Commerce Sec. while he was making policy. There are plenty better things to point out and cause him a stroke. I read somewhere that alot of US companies do business in China. Oh yeah.. It was almost all of them. Thursday night should be fun.

    Scattering ashes at sea.

    We told the junior sailors the bodies were buried under the bricks. Gives us a kid free area to relax in.

    IRC 21.3 Sheeting of Sails, Sail Definitions, Bowsprits and Spinnaker Poles 21.3.1 No headsail or spinnaker may be sheeted from more than one point on the sail. 21.3.2 All sails shall be set and sheeted in accordance with RRS 50, Setting and Sheeting Sails, with the following additions: 21.3.3 RRS 50.3(a) is amended to the extent that a spinnaker or a headsail may be tacked to a bowsprit. 21.3.4 Deleted for 2016 21.3.5 Boats will be rated according to whether they use a spinnaker pole and/or a bowsprit according to the following configurations: (a) No spinnaker pole (spinnaker tacked on deck) or a centre line bowsprit only. (b) An articulating bowsprit only. (c) A spinnaker pole or poles either with or without a bowsprit. RRS 50 50. SETTING AND SHEETING SAILS 50.1. Changing Sails When headsails or spinnakers are being changed, a replacing sail may be fully set and trimmed before the replaced sail is lowered. However, only one mainsail and, except when changing, only one spinnaker shall be carried set at a time. 50.2. Spinnaker Poles; Whisker Poles Only one spinnaker pole or whisker pole shall be used at a time except when gybing. When in use, it shall be attached to the foremost mast. 50.3. Use of Outriggers No sail shall be sheeted over or through an outrigger, except as permitted in rule 50.3(b) or 50.3(c). An outrigger is any fitting or other device so placed that it could exert outward pressure on a sheet or sail at a point from which, with the boat upright, a vertical line would fall outside the hull or deck. For the purpose of this rule, bulwarks, rails and rubbing strakes are not part of the hull or deck and the following are not outriggers: a bowsprit used to secure the tack of a sail, a bumkin used to sheet the boom of a sail, or a boom of a boomed headsail that requires no adjustment when tacking. Any sail may be sheeted to or led above a boom that is regularly used for a sail and is permanently attached to the mast from which the head of the sail is set. A headsail may be sheeted or attached at its clew to a spinnaker pole or whisker pole, provided that a spinnaker is not set. 50.4. Headsails For the purposes of rules 50 and 54 and Appendix G, the difference between a headsail and a spinnaker is that the width of a headsail, measured between the midpoints of its luff and leech, is less than 75% of the length of its foot. A sail tacked down behind the foremost mast is not a headsail.

    You or the above mentioned fucktard whore make believe you have no options. If someone really felt 'guilty' they could simply take the money and donate it to a worthy charity of their choosing. Pay it forward. Like 'Christians for Hungry Yachties', the Catholic charities like Knights of Columbus, Operation Rescue or even Joe Biden's campaign, and still have your tax credit next year instead of buying one month's supply of chocolate frosted donuts.

    It was a welfare stimulus plan due to CoVid. The US Govt automatically sent every needy unemployed destitute person $1200 a few months ago based on their tax returns. Trump put his name on the check on the memo line which was unnecessary. The checks are also officially signed by the Treasury Secretary. There is another $1200 stimulus welfare check coming in a few weeks when it’s approved by Congress. BJ said on this forum he received and cashed one. Just wondering what he spent it on. Maybe a case of Stonyridge Cabernet and a NZ lamb roast? A new halyard? Ice maker? Or dried beans and hard tack?

    If you hate and despise the politics and governing and ethics and morals of your national leader, but are not so offended and ashamed to cash a $1200 welfare check he sends you on your yacht while you are pontificating about how well off you are, I think that is the definition of a whore. Hey, not judging. Those kids in college need books and Volvo spare parts are super expensive! Sure, I dreamed of achieving an adjusted income low enough to have my Govt automatically send me a welfare check. Right.
