  1. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yCPcM8GlptM The problem with socialism is that once somebody has something... they do not want to just give it to somebody. So then you need a BIG bad government to take it away from them by force. And of course, the big bad government gets their VIG in order to fund themselves. The bigger they get, the more they need and then at some point.... Venezuela!!!

    Ivanka emails

    They should punish her just the as the left wanted them to do to Hillary. But only AFTER Ivanka erases all the emails, bleach bits her computer and them smashes all of her cell phones with a hammer.

    National Debt Hits $21 Trillion

    First of all. Don't you all remember... This is Bush's fault. Not Obama or Trump. Second of all, why should most of us care, its not our money being spent, its other (future) people's money right. Third of all, my daddy used to say, you got to spend money to make money.... so lets just give everyone what they want. open the boarders, give the military what they want and give everyone a $100K per year for life, all children get free college. Oh, free heath care also. I'm happy to trade somebody else's suffering in the future so that I can feel good now!!!

    J/133 heavy air gybe

    Jibe the chute first. stay pretty DDW. When the chute loads up on the new jibe, the main will unload a bit and you can just flop it over to the new jibe with out too much of a crash. Then drive goes to the new jibe heading while main sail trimmer follows. The timing and the drivers ability to hold the boat close to DDW until the main jibes are very important.

    Bacon Anarchy

    Bacon Bacon aroma set to end Bacon Bacon will be closing Friday following a dispute with neighbors. The eatery’s food truck is also shut down. Few food items have enjoyed a more surprising recent resurgence than the savory strips of pig fat known as bacon. It is being wrapped around entrees, used to swizzle cocktails, and even serves as a flavor of ice cream. But now a popular pork-focused restaurant in the Upper Haight must close its doors Friday following months of failed negotiations with neighbors over neighborhood concerns about porcine aroma and grease disposal. Department of Public Health officials say the owners of Bacon Bacon, located at 205A Frederick Street, have had months since opening the space to address these and other concerns. But following their failure to do so, the restaurant must shut its doors. “We allow businesses to operate for awhile under change of ownership,” said Richard Lee, director of environmental health regulatory programs, Department of Public Health. “But they didn’t meet the deadline.” The announcement has created a swell of online support for the cafe, including an online petition on the Bacon Bacon website with more than 1,600 signatures from Bay Area residents who support the operation. Owner Jim Angelus said he’s overwhelmed by the support. In August, the restaurant was given a notice that it lacked the proper health permits, according to the letter from The City’s health department instructing it to cease operations. That letter gave the restaurant 75 days to resolve the issue. A public hearing must be held before Bacon Bacon can continue operating, but one may not be scheduled until July, Planning Department officials said. Angelus said that he has tried to meet with neighbors to resolve their concerns since last year, but the parties have failed to agree. “It’s frustrating,” Angelus said. “Two weeks ago, the health department showed up saying we had no permits. So we had a hearing and one person showed up saying they were opposed. They told us we had long enough to resolve these issues — and as a result, we have to cease operations May 17.” Residents were able to express their concerns following the location’s change in ownership. Neighbors took the occasion to raise concerns with the lack of a filtration system to alleviate the aroma of bacon, illegal parking of a related food truck on a residential street and claims that bacon grease was dumped directly into the sewer system, according to their attorney Ryan Patterson. The neighbors — whom Patterson declined to name — have been willing to work with the new business owner, but they’ve not seen the same response, he said. “My client offered to pay the restaurant owner money to install an air filter,” Patterson said. “To date, the owner has not accepted that offer.” Ted Loewenberg, president of the Haight Ashbury Improvement Association, said his association does not oppose the small business, but that it needs to play by the rules. “It makes the people who go through the process — as painful as it is — look like chumps,” Loewenburg said. “The purpose of this regulation is that the government is there to provide a basic level of safety.” But the trouble for Bacon Bacon doesn’t stop there. Angelus was able to replace the store’s food truck recently, but he can’t operate that either unless he secures an approved kitchen location where he can prepare meals.

    J/111 Goes Sailing...

    Nice looking boat. I'll take one. And when I say "take" I mean "steal" as there would be no other way for me to get one. I'm not an engineer or designer, and I am sure there are plenty of people who THINK that they are and will say something about my post..... but to me, the main looks kinda small for the size of the boat. Maybe it is just a optical illusion or something as I have not seen the design specs and compared it to other similar sized boats or other past J-boat designs.
