    Yup, Pete's right. Keep in mind these things are slow, under-powered and difficult to maneuver. Any well found passenger vessel would not have had nearly the trouble in riding out that breeze and sea, seas that are really nothing more than wind chop.

    That's called "isinglass", although a somewhat incorrect term. It's a heavy gauge clear vinyl, without a knife, you're not going to tear it open. It looks like it happened pretty quickly, and it's pointless to say "well I wouldn't have been in that position" but at the last moment, when it appears that the starboard deck is awash, I would have, literally, tossed people off after securing their PFDs. It's a lake, the water is warm, even if a non swimmer the PFD will keep you afloat and it looks like the shoreline was 100 feet away or less. Get them out of the enclosed vessel...I will bet hard money the investigation shows that most people drowned while stuck inside the boat, or being beaten up alongside the vessel while it sunk. Trained mariners cannot abandon ship under bad weather conditions...remember the El Faro.

    Making anything illegal only creates a Black Market for it. If you want any sort of control over it, it needs to be legalized. Trouble with this concept is that it isnt Mexico that is consuming all the drugs, its the US.

    I guess Minimum Wage is too expensive for the company to afford and still make a profit? Oh well, it seems to solve the problem of Livable Wage by rejecting all humans and also takes care of the problem of companies that exploit people with Minimum Wage being subsidized by govt thru Welfare... --- War on Cash. Debit Cards are as dangerous to Privacy as Cell Phones and Google and the NSA.

    Then the People have Rights, both at an individual level, and at a national level? Would that also mean (and yes, stretching here a bit) to collectively say "we dont want every immigrant that wants to come here"? Would the People have the Right to do such a thing? Again, extending, if one of the foundations of Rights is "I own myself", as a collective (and yes, being careful with that), would "The People" technically own the country? And same as Private Property Rights where if you own your Property like your house, you have a Right to say you may / may not smoke in my house, and that is MY Permission to grant. A homeowner would also a Right to say you may / may not enter my house. Abstracting to larger scale and extension, collectively you may / may not enter our Country? Abstract to small scale, I think what has happened is a homeowner allowed a person to come into their house, and the invited person is now inviting other people to come into the homeowners house, even though they do not have the Right to do so. I believe that concept is why there is a major difference between Constitutional Rights and Civil Liberties, where the Rights protect the Individual and Civil Liberties protect the community as a whole. Feel free to challenge the idea, but is that thinking rational?

    Lets play with an idea here... The idea is how to shut down InfoWars instead of how to keep them going, or if InfoWars is protected by First Amendment. And, lets do it legally. Easy concept that respects Freedom of Press, called Free Market. So, if we wanted InfoWars shut down, then people would not watch, and companies would not associate with InfoWars by advertising products. First, InfoWars would adjust their prices for Law of Economics, for Supply & Demand. If that did not work, then InfoWars would go out of business because no one listened and no one bought advertising or sold products or provide services. Free Market and Free Press both work as neither Right is even remotely infringed. The reason that Free Market has not worked in shutting down InfoWars is exactly because of Free Market, protected by Free Press. InfoWars has a Demand for people to get information that does not fit the MSM's Official Narrative about more war and bigger govt and terrorists and socialism / communism. InfoWars offers their own flavor with the exact opposite, that bigger govt is not the solution, socialism / communism does not work, more war hurts everyone, and individuals and small groups in high positions of power really are out to cause harm to people in various forms. Both Alex and MSM offer different flavors of Sensationalism. That Sensationalism is a drug that can get people addicted as it plays on Emotions. Trouble is, people stop watching for the Truth, but rather how much information is Sensationalized in the way it is presented.

    Hmm... If people are not given Rights from Govt, but rather their Creator, and Govts are created by people, would that make the People the Creator of Govts, and, in turn, again since Rights are granted by their Creator and People created Govt, can the People grant very specific Rights (really Privileges) to the Govts they create? I am sort of testing the concept of Abstraction at both Macro and Micro scale, so I need to hear both sides to the argument... The idea is that things which work at the small scale also work on large and very large scale, abstracting back and forth between very small and very large, so I am curious.

    YAY! I just made another sale!! Pretty sweet one too. I profited 20.00 on that one item - after fees and cost of good. I'm not even sure I should consider cost of goods on that item because I wore it quite a bit. I do remember picking it up for 2.00 because it was a mega score. Only 8 more to go to meet my goal this week. :cool:

    Already been done...for boats. The problem is not so much the enclosure, but the vessel itself, which was never designed to have an enclosure. These "DUCKs"... (the acronym is based on GM's model assignment: D Designed in 1942 U Utility K All-wheel drive W Dual-Tandem rear axles) ...are not the most seaworthy of vessels at all. They were yet another bastard hybrid that came out of WW2 designing, they can crawl on land or wallow through water, they exist only because they do both, rather poorly.

    Hey, check out Men Without Hats S.O.S (ABBA) cover. I love it. I know you appreciate disco so I thought I would call your attention to it. I went to Retro Futura last night and saw them. Really fun show. If they come to your area, go. You will have a blast. Mr A doesn't care for that kind of music and he even had fun. I think he was mostly just enjoying making fun of me for liking gay music but still...he had fun.

The oft-parroted sound bite – “we need herd immunity”- implies that if ninety five percent of the population can become “immune” to a disease via vaccination, target immunity levels will be met and diseases will either be eradicated or controlled. This sound bite is the most commonly pulled weapon used by the vaccinators, only second to “smallpox and polio were eradicated by vaccination.” “Herd

Amino acids are the components of proteins. These amino acids are strung together like the links on a chain, where they form the proteins that make our bodies work properly. There are a few exceptions to this rule, amino acids that perform their function individually, not as components of proteins.
