    How many challengers will there be?

    There typically is never a rule prohibiting any number of innovations that have made their way to AC since the dawn of time, that doesn't change the fact that the original innovators were the original innovators. Based on your logic the NYYC invented composite material boats over a century ago when their 12 Metre class rule didn't rule them out... They must have also invented the winged keel!

    How many challengers will there be?

    I was merely stating the close relationship between Melvin and OTUSA had endured for long before AC72 class and continued into drafting the rule. He was not some distant, independant consultant working behind a chinese wall. He was, naturally as it always the case, working deeply with the defender and "CoR" on the rule. Are you genuinely suggesting that OTUSA did not hire Morrelli & Melvin to write the AC72 class rule? To suggest that Melvin (and thus Oracle) intended all along for the AC72 to foil is hard to square with the cold hard facts that despite writing the rule themselves a) Oracle hadn't designed or built a foiling cat and b) that they complained the class rule they wrote themselves prohibited it. Of course Melvin suggested it much later on that the rule never prohibited it, post ETNZ foiling of course, for the reasons I've already explained. That's twice with the facts, here's hoping you won't need thrice... ;-)

    Special Counsel Mueller's appointment letter says: any links and/or coordination between the Russian government and individuals associated with the campaign of (Shitstain) In fact, collusion was your boy Shitstain's word because it isn't actually illegal to collude. So Michael Flynn wasn't convicted of collusion with the Russians. He was convicted of lying about his collusion with the Russians. What your boy needs to worry about now isn't collusion (although lying about it will be worrisome). Shitstain needs to worry about conspiracy and obstruction.

    Trumpworld continues to attack former friends

    Disagree, Trump is such an over the top clown that i'm not sure anyone has really taken him seriously. With a new responsible President, the world look at us with a much kinder eye and hopefully things resemble normal again.

    Do you think it is even possible? Trust, once lost, is almost impossible to regain. And nobody trusts the States anymore.

    Thanks for supporting my post. I taught special needs kids who had more happiness and compassion than you will ever experience. I feel very sorry for the hatred and ignorance (not sure which should be first) you experience. If I was correct about your daughter having issues, I wish her the best, she didn't pick you.

    Nope, we told you that all along. You are just profoundly stupid and incapable of grasping it.

    I always said here that clarkey was posting against TNZ, but he is not lonely if you consider the number of likes he gets from the fans. That said, if A4E is Clarkey, that would be hilarious, and it would make sense.

    Uh, no. It was the word of choice for your *resident. It’s not “the media’s” fault for reporting what the idiot said.

    Collusion was the watch word of the media and all of you lefty commie retards for two fucking years. Do you mean to tell me you all arsehole pricks were confused? Asking for a friend.

    Not much of a seabreeze from the NW..... They get a pretty good north east seabreeze in summer. Much lower transmission losses when producing power close to where it will be used. Petition here-

    Backstay w/ Tylaska?

    If it needs to be removed quickly, either soft shackle, bone loop or eye/bone setup. Trigger shackles on high risk components are usually a bad idea. HW

    It would be a proof that Melvin was an employee of OTUSA before and not when he wrote the rule.

    He outed himself months ago. I was wondering why you guys weren't taunting him more. I guess my idea that him and SClarke are the same guy is out the window.
