  1. Replace the word Liberal with Secular Progressive Globalist. There are no Liberal Leftists anymore.
  2. When I run into a person asking me to use their plural pronoun I figure that person has a multiple personality disorder and it it best to leave and minimize contact.
  3. I have had similar experience with Grand and X4 and don't like either. I guess I should try some of the newer braids, but it sounds like you have had mixed results with the coated lines holding up. Our mutual friend got me to try what I think was the original braid offering from YGK that had a woven sheath over a braid core and it was a disaster with the recoil guides. The sheath started to slip and stretch like the woven cover on parachute cord and it bunched up. That was a number of years ago and at this point I am no longer sure it was YGK braid. I have not gotten my hands on a newest Steez and I am not surprised that Daiwa has refined it. Our mutual friend had one of the earliest models and I was not that impressed with its somewhat moderate action, ergonomics and sensitivity, however it was an incredibly light and versatile rod that cast extremely well. It sounds like the engineering on the blank and action on new Steez is similar to the NRX.
  4. I get it and sorry I misinterpreted your point. Yeah we all had our sophomoric moments especially while under the influence.
  5. Well I missed the dorm room chatter part, but it is still an incredibly dumb and thoughtless idea even if it was a joke or chatter. I guess that was your point and it was a duh! moment on my part.
  6. That is probably the dumbest comment I have seen in a long time. How would you know which of the unborn to abort. Based on your logic you would have to abort every unborn child and maybe that is a good idea for Dim Wits while the rest of us keep and cherish our children and grandchildren. Slacker is the type of person that Margret Sanger's eugenics movement thought were to dumb to reproduce. The goal of the Eugenics Movement was to stop idiots and low functioning morons from reproducing because they would be a drag on society and hurt the genetic pool.
  7. They are widely available medicines that can induce an abortion that don't require a medical procedure and there is only one State that I know that might ban most abortions so you are either trying to gas light us or are totally ignorant. My guess is the latter. I don't see the Dems trying to protect the thousands of Immigrant children that are being sexual abused and sold into sex trades. They don't even want to acknowledge it.
  8. The vaccine mandate was also the leading cause of the trucker shortage and our supply chain problems. When you combine the trucker shortage will the ridiculous price of diesel fuel the problem is only getting worse because most independent truckers can't make a profit. The law of unintended consequences is biting the Dim Wit Party and the rest of us on the arse big time.
  9. Thanks for the input Buddha, however I am casting 100' or more with the J-Brain X8 and I have found it to be rounder, slicker, quieter, softer, ties great knots and handles better than the coated braids I have used. I also like the fact that J-Braid handles great right out of the box without any break-in, the color doesn't fade and J-Braid lasts a long time. Since I have switched to the improved Alberto knot for my leaders I have no problems with knot damage from the recoil guides and my leaders last for days of hard fishing even when I am blasting my casts to get maximum distance. The only time I need to replace leaders is when they get too short from retying lures a number of times. I have found a 12' leader is all I need with a 7-1/2 rod to fool wary wild trout in gin clear water and when I used the Steez rods and they were not nearly as sensitive as the NRX and don't feel as good in my hand, or have the hook setting power or the new NRX +. The main advantage of the Steez rods in my opinion was the fact they were lighter and cast a wider range of lure weights than the original NRX, but the new NRX+ rods are as light or lighter than the Steez, have more power and have a rock solid more comfortable feel combined with the great sensitivity of the original NRX rods. There is a reason the NRX and NRX + 901S and 902S are considered to be two of the finest spinning rods ever made. If using a extremely light powerful rod with almost no memory and great sensitivity is important to you and you can get your hands on a NRX+ I think you will agree.
  10. The last information I read indicated new Republican Party Registrations were up 176% compared to new Democrat Registrations in a number of States, including Purple and Blue States.
  11. I think you are right Pleco. My brother and I used to catch a lot of White Catfish in brackish rivers and they looked like the fish billthe5th described. The wide flat head combined with the forked tail sounds a White Catfish. If I recall correctly the white catfish is the biggest member of the bullhead catfish family and they grow to about 10 to 11 lbs. Some States stocked White Catfish in rivers and lakes many years ago. I have not heard about any recent stockings of white catfish because Channel Cats have become more popular with the warm water fish hatcheries and catfish anglers.
  12. Rivershoulders, The Varivas Super Trout Advance Max Power X8 PE size PE 0.6 Champaign Gold sounds like would perform well for casting for micro jigs. I am curious to know how long you have been using the Fluorocarbon X8 coated braid because in my experience the coatings wear out much faster than the braid. I have not had good experience with coated braid because my rods have recoil guides. I typically get 4 to 5 years of hard use out of a spool of Daiwa 8X. I have had the same challenges with the super small diameter braids. They are very susceptible to line twist and other issues that affect their casing performance and durability.
  13. Over 60 Secret Service Agents were injured when Leftists burned the church in DC and tried to storm the Whitehouse to get Trump.
  14. If gays want to get married that is fine with me, but I think they had the best of both worlds before the marriage thing. If their marriage doesn't work they have to get a divorce and suffer the consequences just like the rest of us. The primary reason marriage became an institution and a sacrament was to protect the children and the Left could not care less about children, especially the unborn. With modern conception being effective, cheap and often free bragging about 1 in 4 women getting an abortion is evidence of our current society's failures and depravity.
  15. Hey, I resemble that remark.
  16. The wading staffs certainly come in handy when you are fishing high gradient rivers with lots of current where a third point of contact can save your arse if you make a bad foot placement or a rock moves when you step on it. They also come in handy when the water is turbid and you can't see boulders, sloughs and drop offs. IMO they are a must have for wading at night, unless you are intimately familiar with the area of the river you are fishing. In any river a wading belt is a good idea because it can prevent your waders from immediately filling with water if you take a fall and if the river is especially dangerous you might consider wearing one of the new inflatable life preservers. Tail race rivers are notorious for their uneven bottoms with lots of loose rock and boulders and if they have a high gradient with heavy currents they can be especially dangerous.
  17. The Dems don't care about the sanctity of life and the unborn are a powerless vulnerable minority that can't vote, so they could not care less. The Dems have declared the progs need to be supporting the state and paying taxes and can't afford distractions like caring for children. A number of Dems have said as much and one in Florida even declared that she wished some of her relatives had been aborted. What nice folks. I wonder if any of these Dems realize they had a mother. Maybe they think they arrived on this planet spontaneously.
  18. Geez, Maybe the Dem Dim Wits should have tried to pass that Federal Abortion Rights Legislation they promised their constituents if they got control of both houses of Congress and the Presidency. Once they got power the Dems did not even try to submit any legislation regarding abortion. I wonder if anyone is going to ask Pelosi and Schumer about that.
  19. Brandon would not recognize a Constitutional Right even if it kicked him in the ball sack. Leftist just got smacked in the face by the Constitution and they still don't know what happened.
  20. The Dems promised to pass legislation to make unfettered abortion on demand the law of the land and they never even tried. If the Dems believed in body autonomy they would not have mandated the mRNA vaccines as a requirement for prenatal care which hurt many pregnant women and their babies. The CDC and the regime refused to accept any exceptions for pregnant women regardless of their medical circumstances, so cut the BS about body autonomy. Everything the Left says is a lie.
  21. When the Roe versus Wade ruling was made years ago the Dems promised abortion would be legal and rare. Since then they have been promoting abortion on demand for any reason at anytime up until birth which is barbaric. It was never supposed to be a form of birth control and there are drugs available that are cheaper and easy to get that do the same thing early term without a medical procedure. The Dems promised to Legislatively make abortion the law of the land and they never did it because they know the majority of Americans are Pro-Life, especially now that we know fetuses feel pain at 15 weeks and suck their thumbs and actually fight abortion instruments and fight for their life in the womb at 18 weeks. Any medical student that has watched an ultrasound images during an abortion procedure knows this. At 21 weeks fetuses AKA premature babies can survive outside of the mother womb with some assistance. They Left had their chance to pass a federal law and they never even tried. Now they are trying to claim that this decision also endangers birth control and gay marriages when the SCOTUS decision actually states the ruling only applies to Abortion because human life is a special case. The fact that the Leftist protestors are demanding the abolition of the Supreme Court and forced vasectomies for men shows how out of touch their death cult is with the rest of the nation. Some Democrat leaders are even saying they wished some of their family members had been aborted. I wonder if they ever plan to see their relatives again. Probably not a good idea. It is clear this is about eugenics and nothing else. If it was about controlling your health and your body the Dems would never have mandated the mRNA vaccines that hurt many pregnant women and their babies. At this point the Dems can't even figure out what a woman is so nobody trusts them or takes them seriously. This will no go well for them.
  22. Hmm, I don't see that happening. How do you figure that is going to happen when many folks voted for Trump because he promised to appoint SCOUTUS picks that would support Constitutional Jurisprudence. Its a huge win for Trump.
  23. The violent irrational reaction of the Wing Nut Left Anarchists will hurt the Democrat Party far more the Roe decision will help them.
  24. What the Left also does not seem to understand is that medical science has created new drugs that will induce an abortion and those drugs are easily to get and accessible to just about anyone. There is no good reason to have a late term abortion even if you are lazy, stupid and amoral.
  25. Most people do not support abortion after 15 weeks including independents. It is up to the voters and their Legislatures to decide and in most cases the existing State Abortion Laws will remain the same. I think you will find the equivocal independents support Democracy far more than the Left does.
