    Screw the NRA, Trump and Marco Rubio

    You have staff for that? He needs new staff for his posts, the current bunch are hopeless.

    Roger's Turn in the Barrel

    In public, at least.

    Boating Tariffs

    Speaking of tariffs, the Trumpian Trade War with China is a little off-focus these days. Chinese steel and aluminum imports have been seeking tariff relief, to the point that 40% of the steel and aluminum from China is coming in tariff free. However, Canadian producers have been uniformly turned down so virtually no tariff relief on those. Mexico is able to bid on US infrastructure work but Canada is specifically omitted. The USMCA sure is working well for somebody, but it ain't us.

    Torqeedo Pod - Placement of propeller

    You should install it just in front of the keel, with the propeller facing forward. That way, you won't be able to leave the slip and then be towed home by a powerboater when that stupidly expensive motor quits.

    The debate over assault weapons

    If they had been driven over by a van in their living room, nobody would be calling for a ban on living rooms. Or something like that.

    Craigslist - Not mocking

    I thought this might be a good idea, to post boats that seem like really good value posted on local sites. Figured it would be easier to keep track than mash it into the Mocking thread. I hope people will post legitimate finds and not try and use this as a sales tool for your own rubbish. I just saw this listed, looks like a good boat at a good price. http://www.usedvictoria.com/classified-ad/ESTATE-SALE--1981-CC-34-with-62-head-room_29378719 C&C 34, $22k CAD New forum won't let me post a link to a picture, WTF? I'll save it and upload it.

  8. From Esquire Translation From The Original Weaselspeak: They wanted me to do my job but I prefer to bask in the misbegotten devotion of my mouth-breathing base. Progress is being made significant. Now. What did happen? Is the Democrats were being hit really hard on the concept of releasing criminals into our society? That has not been playing well, so maybe progress is made, maybe not, but I had a choice. I could have stayed out there. Listen. I could have come out to the people of El Paso and Texas. I chose I chose so so we probably have some good news, but who knows us will learn we're setting the stage folks, you know what it's called right. It's called we're setting the stage we're setting the table we're doing whatever we have to do the walls being built. It will continue it's going at a rapid pace, the Rio Grande, it's happening, go check it out. Yes, I, too, sprained my ankle trying to get clear of that syntax, but let's move on. {Snip} There's more, but it's better to go read it yourself. I thought it was pretty humorous.

    What I learned in prison this week

    Give them MAGA hats, they'll fit right in.
  10. He also lacks any semblance of intelligence, but that has never stopped any of the Retarded Right from posting deranged bullshit.

    Craigslist - Not mocking

    You're thinking of the blue masking tape. Just like the label says, this is Performance Plus Duct Tape. The 8979 doesn't go gooey like Gorilla Tape so it comes off quite cleanly, as long as it hasn't baked in the sun for several months. https://www.3m.com/3M/en_US/company-us/all-3m-products/~/3M-Performance-Plus-Duct-Tape-8979N/?N=5002385+3293242024&rt=rud Also available in red.

    Cruising on a Trailer Sailer

    Nice little boat. But why do you have to beach it to pee?

    Craigslist - Not mocking

    It tends to get gummy over time, and under strain will creep. I much prefer the 3M Performance Tape, the blue stuff. Comes off clean inside a month.

    Stupidest Shutdown in History

    It looks like Presidents Hannity and Ingraham are making progress. I gather Americans are A-OK with a couple of right-wing "news" hosts running the country.

    Green new deal

    That has many variants, depending on whether you are talking to your wife or your best friend or your brother.

    It would be unfortunate if Mr. Manafort fell into a vat of hot sulfuric acid, but how likely is that?

    Beto killed his 2020 run today.

    It helps him find quotes to post-process.
  21. Right now? An albino elephant, a leaky tire, the funny sound the fridge makes sometimes, what's that wet spot in my pants, where the fuck are my keys, why is my left shoe full of urine, should I get my kangaroo neutered, And I learned the truth from Lenny Bruce, And all my wealth won't buy me health, So I smoke a pint of tea a day. Am I close?

    Sailing around the world in a San Juan 24

    In Rimas land, the erstwhile hero is seeing not much. When does he get new eyeballs?

    Yes, I think so. Rick was a real connoisseur of fine sailboats.
