  1. My neighbor caught a 21 inch red off his dock in the creek the other night. That used to happen a couple of times a week. First one in at least a year. Maybe they shouldn't have killed so many each week. Can anyone else see the problem? Not sure which "they" you think you're talking about. The fish referenced in my post were mostly undersized and have been under a moratorium for years now, so virtually all were tossed back. The problem here seems to be another ignorant Aussie who jumps to conclusions because he thinks he knows everything
  2. Meet the Cattle Ranchers Working to Preserve Southwest Florida's Wild Side Interesting that Strickland has never actually seen a panther in the wild. I'm one up on him, having caught a glimpse once back in the 90's. Friend of mine said another guy we know has a hunting lease and catches LOTS of panthers on his game cameras. He won't share any of the pics because he doesn't want the official attention they would bring.
  3. Well, I took the plunge and bought a 120 aH 48 volt battery from Lithium Battery Power. They're a couple of hours away from me and offered a deal on a battery that was used for promotion but tests and has warranty as new. So I look at the cables leading from my existing battery bank to the controller and the negative side leads straight to the controller but the positive side leads through this little box: What is that? The several little wires lead around to the big plug with dozens of little wires in the end of the controller. I'm wondering if it has something to do
  4. Why did one piece of fruit get a separate bowl?
  5. Down at the creek last night one neighbor was catching catfish as usual but another was throwing a spoon and got half a dozen little snook, a little jack, and a little red. My wife, who has tossed a spoon where he was fishing thousands of times with little luck, was extremely jealous.
  6. It's not really water. It's goo. Doesn't flow like water but does corrode things like salt water. The dealership where I worked was a Tohatsu sales/service center prior to ethanol. It went like this: sell people a new Sun Cat with a new Tohatsu. People in this area with that money are snowbirds, so they leave. And leave the vented fuel tank in the garage for the FL summer. They come back down, put the boat in the water, fire it up, go for a while until the goo arrives at the carb, then stop. They come to the shop complaining that the brand new engine died. We take it apart, find the goo a
  7. So you confined your concerns to an anonymous sailing blog ?? Not very valiant of ya. Among other places. You clipped out my question instead of answering it. Not very valiant of you. I'll try again: Vote for any Iraq war supporters for President lately? It's not a hard question, is it?
  8. Right here, getting excoriated by warmongers who vote for people who support the wars I oppose. Where were you? Vote for any Iraq war supporters for President lately? Or even not so lately?
  9. The same proseclerker sent a man to death row. That conviction was tossed and the man is out awaiting a new trial.
  10. W is a Dem? Wow, I didn't reaiize a professor of political science could be that ignorant! By the way, I've previously called out McCain for refusing to listen to Ron Paul about Iraq when it mattered. Do you think he's a Dem too?
  11. Dumbest question ever posed on the internet! Tom, you've earned a red flag and I will be on the phone when they open. LMAO what a maroon
  12. Yeah it's too bad that poeple like W, Hillary, and Biden didn't listen to Ron Paul about the Iraq war when it mattered.
  13. Prosecutor Clerks for Judge I agree with the quoted nutjob.
  14. Yes. Do you have any such history, or for that matter any history of commenting on this issue at all. Do you agree with Trump and Biden on it?
  15. Hah! Joy Behar is in a PANIC about outdoor militias
  16. It would look cool but I avoid cutting metal if possible and I don't weld. It was too wet and full of cypress knees where one of the piers was supposed to land so the boys had to move it and drill a new 3/4" hole through the beam for that one on the left in the foreground of the pic. He asked me if that plan was OK and my only comment was when it comes to drilling big holes through big pieces of steel, better him than me.
  17. Seriously? Debates should follow your wants and not that of the electorate? Actually, on the issues I mentioned the electorate has come to agree with nutjobs like me, but Duopoly politicians still don't. Yes, I think it would be nice to hear both sides of those issues in a debate instead of what we have been offered.
  18. My neighbor caught a 21 inch red off his dock in the creek the other night. That used to happen a couple of times a week. First one in at least a year. In other news. FWC was actually up at the dam last night. Gave my neighbor Antonio a warning because he was fishing from the dock and his license expired a few days ago. Except for holidays, I don't remember ever seeing FWC up here in the creek. Neighbor boy says the snook are thick under the RR bridge. Cast nets are on the long list of things I'm not allowed to pick up, let alone throw, since my hernia surgery.
  19. Semites did it. Interesting. I don't think there was a controlled demolition at all. I assume that's the "it" in your sentence?
  20. Let's test that theory. Do you agree or disagree with him that the Jews conducted a controlled demolition on our buildings on 9/11?
  21. This database. People here have invented the notion that I've built a duplicate but I lack the technical and organizational skills to do something like that. I just know how to use the search function, which I guess makes me appear supernatural to those who don't, so they make shit up. I'm curious, Meli, do you think that posting material from the Anti-Defamation League makes me a "Jewish shill" as randumb said?
  22. I'd like to see a debate with more than one view of police qualified immunity, the stupid drug war, drug war looting, eminent domain, Section 230, and authorizing unitary military forever. But the CPD will most likely continue poling the electorate. If there's a debate, only the Duopoly view of those subjects will be presented.
  23. Complete with a link. That's a lot of trouble considering I provided the source, but OK. I take it from your response that they're not a randumbly-approved source? Ah well, we don't count things said when in full paranoid upswing do we? I remember that thread I think. Rando was in full laced Buddha sticks mode. Calling me a "Jewish shill" for posting material from the Anti-Defamation League is "full paranoid upswing" huh? Nah, excuse it all you want, but randumb is an antisemitic asshole and his conspir
  24. SCOTUS asked to look at qualified immunity again in Cope v Cogdill Really? You've decided to strangle yourself and you have in front of you a phone cord and a sheet. Does anyone pick the sheet? Or, more on point, if you know that a sheet could be used for that purpose, do you also know a wire could be too? I think the answer is yes, of course you do, everyone does. But that answer doesn't give benefit of the doubt to cops. Now we have another Justice who looks to cops like she might just need stopping and frisking. I think it's no coincidence that the two Justices w
