  1. Phil - Congratulations on finding Wally! He's super cute. I would suggest dog couriers as well. There's been too many incidents of late with airlines and dogs. Kathleen
  2. @TimS I did all that typing and I feel like you ignored the important part! From the government archive site itself, archives dot gov/presidential-libraries/laws/1978-act dot html, the listed tenets contain the one I included in my post above. She is a senior adviser to the President. Therefore any scheduling or communication she has with other govt employees, etc. about WH schedules, initiatives, ideas are in fact on behalf of the President, and required to be archived as part of the Presidential Records Act. And these 3 words, which make a very important distinction: "that her voluntary role gave her all of the access and perks of the White House — but none of the legal responsibilities or constraints." "When she joined the White House on March 30, Trump pledged to comply “with all ethics rules,” responding to complaints that her voluntary role gave her all of the access and perks of the White House — but none of the legal responsibilities or constraint" Not that it was in fact all access no responsibility. But that people assumed/complained that it would be. Like I said, paid or unpaid, her position as adviser requires her to adhere to certain rules. This is one of them. I'm not saying we should start chanting lock her up or congressional investigations. Waste of time and money. But she f***ed up. Willfully or accidentally. One would think that she would know better, having been standing by her father's side whilst he raged on about Hillary's emails.
  3. The Presidential Records Act actually goes much deeper than the Wikipedia entry. All official White House communications and records are meant to be preserved as a permanent archive of each administration, as well as in case of any FOIA requests. This is a tenet of the Act itself, straight from the archives site: "Establishes preservation requirements for official business conducted using non-official electronic messaging accounts: any individual creating Presidential records must not use non-official electronic messaging accounts unless that individual copies an official account as the message is created or forwards a complete copy of the record to an official messaging account. (A similar provision in the Federal Records Act applies to federal agencies.)" As far as this one goes, here's the full context of what you wrote: "When she joined the White House on March 30, Trump pledged to comply “with all ethics rules,” responding to complaints that her voluntary role gave her all of the access and perks of the White House — but none of the legal responsibilities or constraint" Which is a completely different situation. As a senior WH adviser, volunteer or paid, any government business/communication she is conducting must be done through official government accounts. As bad as Hillary? We're all gonna have our opinions on that. But the fact remains what she did was immensely hypocritical, and a violation of Congressional law. Entitlement or stupidity, I have no idea.
  4. So for clarity's sake, are you saying it makes no difference that she was using a private domain?
  5. I caught more schoolies than usual, but nothing big. So it averages out, I guess. My most productive plug was the bomber, and I also did well with the teaser. The usual spots produced, but there was an awful lot of kelp and seaweed to deal with this year. Edited to add that I did not catch a single blue all season! Weird.
  6. Hate is a strong word, but there are certain plugs I cannot for the life of me catch anything on. The needlefish - I hear constantly that this is a go to plug. I’ve tried floating and sinking and giant and every color of the rainbow. I’ve fished needles in RI, NJ, LI, and Cuttyhunk. Never even a tap. Bottle plugs - sure, they cast great. But again, I’ve tried all colors, weights, and lengths. Nada. Despite all of the above, I still always keep them in my bag, because I enjoy punishing myself. Anyone have any plugs that they just can’t seem to connect on??
  7. Fished NoMoCo from 3:30-6. Water wasn’t too dirty. Cormorants everywhere and birds on busting fish way beyond casting range. Not a bump. Not a tap. These are soul-crushing times, my friends.
