WindBlue Power - The best wind generator parts and PMA Permanent Magnet Alternators on the web

a link to cheaper wind power generators, add a can of corrosion inhibitor and you have a good setup for a lot less than the cost of a airx

this is in response to the question of power on the hook or the ball. I have one on my boat.

A long time ago, my mother said something about not being able to sleep at night worrying about me. I told her, "Don't be foolish, I don't skydive at night."

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

It is if he is associated with said website. And if he is associated with the website, he should say so in his signature and title, per the Special Interest Disclosure rules in the boat buying forum.

i have nothing to do with the site, i have talked with them and didn't even really like them that much there was a topic of power while on the hook. the link is a great resource of info for the people that like doing things for themselves. Wasn't trying to spam and you can get rid of it if ya want just trying to help others.

Southernwind,

Have you ever considered that your signature could be incredibly offensive to a great many Americans that have lost family members and loved ones to terrorism?

LB...that bumper sticker is what you find offensive? Or did he change it?
If it is the bumper sticker....then I must ask HOW SO?
Is it not true that terrorists would rather see Barack in office than McCain? How is that offensive to families of soldiers?

No longer posting. Reach me by PM!

Yes it was the bumper sticker.

I have no problem with political debate. In fact I believe it is invaluable. His written signature is fantastic (though applicable to ALL politicians IMHO).

I don't know. I haven't asked any. I know that there are two schools of thought however.

Quote:

I made no mention of soldiers.

The bumper sticker (which is now gone) strongly suggested that the Democratic Party of the United States supports terrorism. While there are clearly many viewpoints on how to deal with terrorism, I find it difficult to believe that the Dems want more terrorist attacks in this country.

Republicans, Democrats, Libertarians, and Independents died as a result of the attacks of September 11, 2001 and the subsequent wars.
