    Since when do you need to be related to the little old lady getting beat up by the thugs outside the grocery store?

    FIFY Nobody bitches when they work in a nice place, unless they're treated like shit, but I treat my guys as well as I can, I think. I've worked in a lot of dirty shops, I much prefer my method.

    Immediate withdrawal from Syria

    The only people who wanted america stirring up terrorists in Syria was america. They would rather you weren't doing dirty work either, but unfortunately it seems to be a bit of a hobby.

    Good point about it being a cruise to Hobart. Why does she need insurance for the "race". Surely Bottman has insurance now that would apply.

    Immediate withdrawal from Syria

    Trump does what he always does. He lies. "We're bringing our troops home from Syria!" "Well no, actually, we're just putting them in a more dangerous place, fighting the same people, but w/o our Kurdish allies to get our back......"

    I'm not sure why people continue with the delusion that AS is there for the grass roots. Over 75% of funding is taxpayer largess. More than 70% of that figure goes to employees. From the 2017 report: income $15M. membership $2.4M Service fees (regattas, certification, courses) $4.3M Various taxpayer grants (AOC, AIS, ASC, etc) $11.4M Expenses: employee payments $8M supplier expenses $5M

    The onslaught of radical Christianity

    Pompous is one of those raving lunatic catholic types as well. A pence, pompous, Barr triumvirate would be most troubling.
  13. Hillary was McCain's favorite opposition senator. They had similar views in this area, and that was demonstrated by the fostering of color revolutions in the Ukraine when Hillary was SOS. Hillary's "reset" with Russia was based on the same assumption the neocons had...that Russia would eagerly adopt our vision for their future...that they would be just another nation...like a Germany or a France. That they would never again be a world power...that they would happily accept a Pax Americana. This is what makes a neo-con to me. The notion that everybody is either with us or against us, and those who disagree are must be either ignorant or evil. I don't think it highly likely the Russians would do this. Someone suggested they would try to make a third party out of Gabbard. The why if it was to try to split the opposition vote against Trump. I merely think it more likely they would pick someone else, and particularly someone more popular. I think it somewhat more likely that if the Russians bother at all they will limit themselves to sliming his opposition, not supporting anybody. They would be wise to butt out at this point. They aren't stupid and thereby have assessed Trump as a probable loser. The most likely outcome of getting deeply involved this time around would be a pointless antagonizing of the next administration.

    Time to impeach?

    nah, it might asymptotically approach zero, but zero is the chance tomballs will accept fucking responsibility for being a dumbshit enabling the duopoly.

    The USAs darkest/brightest days

    Interesting post, Jeffie. You are technically correct (while crowing, and while employing personal ignorance). What MJ said offered us great value. This failure of reconstruction, mentioned by MJ, was the development of rednecks. This failure first created (and now protects) the framework, the foundation. the psychology and the POV of JBSF, IMO.

    I think it'll depend on how their on-board boat management responsibilities are assigned. Raises some interesting possibilities on the crew make-up: Max. 11 crew member: 2 dedicated 3-man grinding crews, helmsman, sail trimmer, navigator, tactician, foil trimmer?

    Canadian election time

    I get it about economic diversification, but billions upon billions of taxpayers dollars have been invested in any number of job creating schemes and dreams in Atlantic Canada. Everything from the lousy Bricklin car, to Mulroney's pal AFVs, to growing tomatoes in massive greenhouses, to a now abandoned tidal power plant, to the abandoned heavy water plant at Port Hawksebury. The one scheme that actually worked well was Hibernia. Therefore I don't know that Alberta can find some industry that will replace the oil patch anytime soon. I am skeptical about "green jobs" because I think it will end up like aerospace. Every developed nation will have its national champions. Those national champions will be subsidized up the ying-yang and try to run the rival national champions into the ground , just like Bombardier sucks at the taxpayer's tit to build corporate jets for maybe...oil companies.
