These threads about religion and politics are so wierd in that I sometimes can''t resist jumping in and adding my totally profound and meaningless drivel like the rest, but it''s not a good thing. Not at all. It''s like instinctively snapping your head around and looking up the shirt of a fat woman: hormones demand it but the brain carries the vision forever like a scar.
I think it''s beter to ask why so many people claim to prefer the Bruce anchor yet the CQR commands the higher price by a factor of two to one. I don''t get it. If the Bruce is so good, why don''t they get what CQR gets? And the ''lower cost to manufacter'' argument doesn''t make sense as anyone holding a Windows XP CD in one hand and an AOL CD in the other surely knows. Same item, same cost to manufacture, one free, one vastly overpriced. I think the CQR must be twice as good.
And sailboats with two and three hulls. I don''t get it. What are they thinking? Fast? Please! It runs by wind! Fourteen knots isn''t fast! Mach 3 is fast! Micheal Schumacher is fast! A woman with a lawyer can drain your bank account fast! But multihulls are just silly. I don''t get it. Faster than my 6 knot tub might be good, but not at that price. There''s something spiritually wrong with it, like voodoo or proctos. It''s just wrong.
Is there such a thing as a safe offshore bank account? Just a thought, what with all this talk about privatization of social security. I really believe the president. Oh yes. I think people who spent a lifetime working in MacDonalds, or as hospital orderlies or as public roadcrews have the intellectual wherwithall to manage private investment accounts without being made victim to both scam artists and the IRS. After all, the exact system the president is suggesting already crashed completely in Britain and they are now looking at our social security system as a fix. I hear the republicans, but I don''t get it.
Are there any train wrecks out there we can watch?
Are Norseman fittings better than Staylock? One seems better but I can''t decide.
