    This guy was going to be the moderator if the debate had take place... Now booted from C-Span for being a bullshiter… What other shenanigans would he have pulled? https://www.cnn.com/2020/10/15/media/steve-scully-cspan-suspended/index.html

    First, where have I ever mentioned the term "bootstrap"? Second, where have I ever said my experience works universally? Third, Why do you think that if you support one path that one must support it completely? That is asinine unless of course you are an ideolog. Which I am not, there are many references of me in this forum disagreeing with the hard right. You have an interesting habit of putting word into peoples mouths that they didn't actually say... You really should stop it.

    You obviously have not read my posts.
  7. That's encouraging. The correlation would be a woman came forward and accused JB of assault. Unsubstantiated, maybe but the vast majority of the idiots on this page believe Blassy-Ford and still do. Thanks you for your consistency.

    worked for me... Of course it's much less work to do nothing and shit all over those that did... Life is full of choices... Choose wisely.

    What's odd about it? The ability to come to this country with nothing and succeed is what makes this country so great. I'd love for more people to experience it, but it doesn't come for free... I hope creating something from nothing but one's will and talents does "catch on".

    Schock 35 vs J/35 - Redux

    -6/-9/-12. The sprit is 140% of J. About 5.5ft. ratiometrically wise this penalty would less damaging to a 120 rater like the SAN 35 than it was on my 72 rater but it's PHRF so it's a box of chocolates...

    How Republicans will try to destroy a Biden presidency

    Kinda pointless. There are no Fiscal Conservatives any more. I'd be thinking about a massive inflation jump in the next few years. Devalue the money lowers the debt ratio. All just smoke and mirrors at this point.

    Amy Coney Barrett Let the Knives and Shields come out

    No not really, The difference being that these fine folks get to choose to do so. Being forced by law and consequences is vastly different to choosing to do it...

    Schock 35 vs J/35 - Redux

    So for we love it. The rating seems fair and it's much more fun when it get's wound up. For a SAN 35 the foretriangle is so small. You'd have to figure if there was enough extra speed potential to offset the rating penalty. The SAN 35 is much lighter than the SCH 35 so it might pay. If it were me I'd add jumpers and run MH kites and make sure it had enough power. The other point to consider would the reduced forward floatation due to the lower bow angle on the SAN 35 Vs the SCH 35 in waves it may become a submarine! Maybe do a prototype with a big ALU tube strapped to the deck and see how it goes... The actual retracting sprit job is pretty straight forward if you are contemplating it you probably have the skill. I have plans vendors and a template I could PM you if you like.

    Not that it will ever happen but SS marriage and abortion are states rights issues and each state would have the job of sorting it out for their constituents.
