    Yup. And with a 501(c)4, they have a special IRS obligation that even 501(c)3s don't have about any of the people involved in the company receiving special benefits from the revenue.

     

    Can you explain this statement? I am not a bk lawyer but I review bk docs frequently and am not aware of the “special IRS obligation”.

    same number as Ben. Grant, Max..based on the inclusion of TH you are going for skipper role suitability? 

    by some weird logic you should only drive an AC boat if you have won a foiling championship*

     

     

    *moth only or at a push A class ;)

    I’m not disparaging any of their bona fides at winning sailboat races. I merely point out my longtime mantra when forecasting future performance: its best indicator is past performance.  Luna Rossa selected their “skipper” and unique driver setup for branding and political reasons. Magic, Ineos for trust and ego reasons. I know which team my money is on, though I’d be equally happy for ineos or NZ to win it.

    Of course it is. Now if you want to play plaque nazi and argue over a piece of paper sticker I can go find a high quality  copy machine and get you one LOL. 
     

    After all it is the original Laser. It’s the ILCA that has strayed from its original roots. 

    Careful, it is felony counterfeiting in some places.  Those plaques are same as currency or a stock medallion. They’ll add that to Wess’s indictment along with taking that picture with Viking hat guy in Nancy Pelosi’s office.

    The helmsmen responds to the information coming in. Spotting that gust should have been THs job. Goody gave good info but it was not definitive. Up until that capsize AM was flying a good 4 knots faster than prada. DB had the boat going fast. Your problem is TH being skipper and grinding. It is a dumb set up and will solve many of the problems. 

    how many foiling championships does TH have under his belt?  I haven’t updated myself.

    He was one of the first foilers. I agree you have an after guard problem. The weakness if you ask me is TH. Move Goodison to tactician just like Giles and take TH off the boat and replace . The set up on INEOS seems to be about the best way of doing things.

    The fuck does “first to do it” have to do with performance? Goodie is one of the most talented 3 foiling helmsman on earth yet the aged guy who has never won a foiling event as a helmsman is driving.

    I suspect he is devastated. I hope he can come back because he is world class.

    Not in foilers he ain’t. 
     

    of course let’s just leave the multiple moth world champ on the main and deano on the helm  

    Makes sense.

    A few outlets trying to avoid losing TOO much money.

    It was wrong for us to publish these false statements. We apologize to Dominion for all of the harm this caused them and their employees. We also apologize to our readers for abandoning 9 journalistic principles and misrepresenting Dominion’s track record and its limited role in tabulating votes for the November 2020 election. We regret this grave error. 

    This is better

  8. I have a strong suspicion that Newsmax, OANN, Gateway Pundit, and Epoch Times are going to have a very Gawker-esque year and I would predict that all four either disappear or move offshore this year.  
     

    Fox want to go harder right but their lawyers may not let them depending on what the Smartmatic and Dominion suits allege. My understanding is that plaintiff’ counsel are researching all the ownership and corporate/affiliate structure so they can properly plead all the special damages  with respect to these entities.

  9. Fairness doctrine ain’t the answer. Laws imposing penalties for unprotected speech that incites or misleads are the answer.  Doesn’t even need to be the government who brings the action though civil enforcement actions and asset seizure would be appropriate. 

    Call it treble damages for intentionally misleading statements plus punitives, with any audience member holding the right to bring a civil action. Class action expressly approved. Whistleblowers get 1/3 of any recovery.   Watch how fucking fast the news goes back to being fact based (and me hang out a new shingle)

    Donald Trump’s term is 1,460 days long. 
     

    On day 1,449 Dorsey and Zuckerberg finally grow a pair and throw Trump and his delusional followers off.

     

    Could the fact that Schumer is going to be Majority Leader have anything to do with it?  

    I can’t possibly think of any reason Twitter and Facebook would suddenly start enforcing anti-violence rules and moderation requirements. It’s not like anything major happened over the last week. 


  11. Apple served a case and desist already for publishers claiming “collusion” regarding action against Parler. Knowing their law firms ima guess there was a specific focus by the players to not do anything that would resemble collusion. 
     

    “but they did it at the same time!!!!”

    crazy, right? There can’t be any other reason these companies would turn on parler at the same time!!

    Ah, BG.  You were a punchline under your previous ID.  And, you are only slightly less insufferable under this one. 

    This "I don't need to wear a mask when I go to the gym" is selfish and obnoxious.  Two characteristics we've come to expect from you. 

    Just remember he is the original Florida man


  13. You seem to think there is some authority that has made the decision for us. That is not correct. 
     

    For instance, at what point did Christianity cease to be a cult and become a religion? Mormonism? Scientology? 
     

    Is there a legal test for what is a religion and what is a cult? How does it vary from nation to nation?

    the idea that there is something absolute and dispositive separating the two concepts is just silly

    There is in fact a definition for the word "cult."

    No, there are many definitions of both cult and religion. Those written by the religious say that their religion is not a cult. Those written by those in a cult say that their religion is not a cult. Those written by scientists, policy wonks, and lawyers say there is no way to tell the difference.

    We can define it quite well, you just don't like the definition. Feel free to make up your own definition, you'll just sound like an idiot/snowflake

    - DSK

    Mikey is only correct once in 450 posts, but he’s sure correct here. It’s an old exercise to challenge believers to explain the difference between a cult and a religion. They are literally just different sized but otherwise identical things. Otherwise, feel free to come up with something that actually distinguishes any of them.
