I think Mister Sink, like myself, have grown very tired of the Trump bashers.
Bunch of sore losers and crybabies imo.
I wasn't a supporter of the last president, but didn't whine about it.
I put on my work boots every morning and headed off to work my construction job,
like i have for the last 46 years.

Funny, you pick up a newspaper and you would think Trump was an abominashon (sp). Yet, everybody I talk to says they will vote for Trump next election, no matter who the Dems hose down and put up for a candidate. Thing is can support from Washington, NY, and Boston Pravdas swing enough votes to defeat Trump? They couldn't last time so why would they do better next election?

My local paper...I call "The Substandard Times", has one editorial after another, bashing Trump and America in general. I havent subscribed for years, but my mother in law, who lives here, reads it cover to cover. I saw a full page editorial that said that we should be ashamed of America. . Freedom of the press is good, easier to spot the jackasses writing this garbage.

I was disgusted with the July 4th "coverage", rather lack of coverage, of the celebration in DC. All week they said Trump was going to politicize the event.
Yet, on the day, it turns out not only didn't he "politicize" it, but had by all
accounts an amazing, patriotic, celebration. No coverage of the live event
up here. NADA.



Just stupid "concerts" leading up to fireworks. I can't call most of what they push out
nowadays music, so hence the quotes.

The newspapers are conspiring together against Trump. I think it scary that they have become "the enemy of the people". How can we hope to continue as a nation with all this acrimonious division? I read two newspaper daily and I don't trust or believe anything I read. I am also hearing similar assessments from my acquaintances.

I can understand our forefathers need to have a First Amendment but they failed to anticipate all the abuse of that 1St Amendment that is taking place now. Seems to me that they should be able to say what they want, but doesn't it have to be true?

NBC and CBS did not cover the DC celebration. We saw it on CNN and it was worth watching. Also these conspiracies between news sources is not healthy either.

I think you would have to be a Destroyer (tin can) sailor to get the full meaning and feeling of the book. I had the advantage of having served on a tin can so I knew more about what was being described. When not in the ship's office, my battle Station was an anti-aircraft gun mount. I was a loader on a twin 40. Way back, before my time, those guns were called "ack-ack".

I know the answer already, but post your thoughts on the trendy "fishing the flats" in the striper surf (and you know where the sun is when they do this). You must have addressed this multiple times in threads but wondered if there was a "best of" you could think of.

Hope all is well, Frank!

Yes and no. My health is okay but I have grown increasingly disenchanted with the lack of posting by what few members we do have. Therefore, if nobody talks to me, I won't talk to them. What can I say if nobody has anything to say?

That is more like it. We are getting posts and more views this past week. Previously we went a week without a solitary post.
