    Because 32 indictments and 5 guilty pleas, including 3 from top Trump campaign staff, does not already constitute a "bone"?

    Protesting other fleets

    1. Yes, you can protest a boat in another division if they foul you. 2. Yes, it sounds like you were ROW boat, provided that you met your obligations under rule 16.1 3. Just because you CAN protest them doesn't mean you SHOULD. In this case, under spinnaker, you probably didn't have to change course very radically. It probably only cost you a few seconds. When dealing with boats from another fleet, sometimes waving them through and making a small course alteration will be paid back to you in spades when you meet again on a future race course. 3. It's a dick move to purposefully dump bad air on a boat in another fleet, even if you think they fouled you earlier.

    How to solve the trade deficit

    Trumpy somehow believes that trade deficits are a bad thing. Some small minded followers believe him. Sad.
  4. The trade deficit with Russia was over 10B in 2017. I wonder why Trumpy has never mentioned that.

    What's not true is your theory that the FBI had an agenda to favour Hillary over Trump. Their very public announcement 11 days before the election disproves your theory.

    No matter how many times you repeat it, it will never become true.

    Why does it really matter what prompted it?

    WTF is wrong with Pruitt?

    And he's out. Just saw on CNN, he's resigned. EPA deputy Andrew Wheeler takes over as interim administrator.

    When an investigation begins, should investigators not include information already gathered?

    Michael Cohen

    That would be subject to a 25% tariff these days.

    Mitch McConnell being a cunt on gun control

    This is what happens when Russian campaign funds are funneled through the NRA to the Republican party. Probably.

    Why We Are Leaving The GOP

    Around the same time, and also during the same administration, Reagan fired striking air traffic controllers, rendering their union effectively null and void. This was the end of the GOP's representation of the working people, and signaled to corporations that they could run roughshod over their employees. The subsequent rise in corporate power decimated the income of the middle class and created the 1%ers. The growth of corporate lobbyism during the same time frame is no coincidence.

    What is America?

    I think what we are seeing now is a speed bump on the progressive road to equality and freedom for all. I see it as a temporary backlash by the insecure, mostly-uneducated, white minority who are scared that their privileged status in society is threatened. The republican party has grown this base for 40+ years in return for their vote, and it has culminated in the scenario we see today. What happens next is vital. If it is, indeed, a speed bump, there will be a giant backlash against the GOP, Trumpy and the racism/sexism/bigotry that they have come to represent. We'll know more after the mid terms, and for sure after the next general election.
  15. It's coming. A friend has recently ordered a brand new 43 foot sailboat with all electric power. The target for this boat is 10 hours per charge at nearly hull speed.
