  1. A note on the Catalina 30. You want the Tall Rig version (it has a short bowsprit) and you want the Fin Keel. Do not get the shoal draft version as it kills the boat's performance, and the tall rig does much better in light air venues.

    Protestors Catch Up to Mitch

    As long as the people are exercising their right to peaceably assemble, there is no hooliganism. There seems to be a big difference in how the First Amendment is interpreted by members of this forum. There is Speech, there is $peech, freedom of the press and freedom of religion. In this environment, only two of these appear to be protected. I'll let you figure out which two, but I'll give you a hint: if you belong to a certain group, your rights are more equal than others...
  3. His qualified head of the DOE didn't even know about 90% of what the agency does, claimed during his own presidential bid that he would do away with it, and was a buffoon as Governor of Texas. That fact Texans kept him in power for so very long is what makes me cringe at the thought that these same morons will be voting for Trump again.

    For all his faults. TR was not Trump. This sentiment sums it up - from his speech at the Sorbonne in 1910: It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat. If you want to consider Trump in this light, and he comes up beyond short, you have to give Clinton, Bush and Obama the same credit. Although in my mind, the three of them did far less damage to the US and the global ecosystem than Trump, and they had eight full years compared to Trump's less than two.
  5. Can't wait to see how the faithful will spin this.

    My thought as well, but may a bit outside the price range.

    Frankly, I don't believe you.

    It's the Supreme Court - Stupid

    Don't know or care about any of that. What is abundantly clear is that you do care what letter precedes the state from which a politician hails, as in: B. Smith, R. Illinois = good whereas B Jones, D. Illinois = bad.

    Flaying the left.

    Please feel free to refute the troll if you so desire, but don't quote him. He admitted that his job is to foment discord, and that he seeks to discredit rational thought and factual discussion on this forum (and quite likely numerous others.) He is a partisan shill, a liar and a propaganda spinner of epic proportions. It's a pity that he is so bad at his chosen work. Clearly he doesn't get paid for results, but probably by the view or by the quote.

    What's Trump going to get for the US from Putin?

    Rosy cheeks is what from, Putin cock slapping him from side to side.
  13. Sadly, that is just no so. Yes, you have the Malarkeys and the Doggies that will suck on the Trump dick no matter what he does, but I visited a contractor of mine recently, and this is guy with multiple degrees in engineering, architecture, design and so on, and one of the smartest and nicest persons you could ever hope to meet. And yet, on the wall in his office is a Trump, MAGA poster. We've never talked politics as I don't engage on that level when discussing business. This is a deeply red state, and much of his business is predicated on State contracts, so I wonder if this is just for show or if he actually believes this crap? For what it's worth, a substantial portion of his workforce is immigrant labor, and any tariffs on metallurgy will have a huge impact on his business going forward. Unless the Trumpsters in what is left of the GOP get moving on the kind of infrastructure projects this man and his company are best suited for, I just don't see him being in a position to bid for the kind contracts that support his business. Unless of course Trump backs down and doesn't impose all those steel and aluminum tariffs after all.
  14. For God's sake, I hope that is sarcasm...
