  1. Two to the center of mass, one to the head. That’s what I was taught.
  2. And still one of the best!
  3. Spend most of my freshwater fishing time pulling lures behind a boat for trout. Use rapalas, spoons, spinners, and streamers usually. Use lead core when necessary. As to rapalas, f5/7/9s on smelt-based lakes and sr4 and 5s on alewife based lakes. Maybe I’m over-simplifying things, but using this as a starting point has put a lot of fish in the boat over the years.
  4. Nothing wrong with teaching kids about communism. There’s also nothing wrong with teaching them about fascism. Or the teaching them about whatever the fook Russia is calling itself these days. If fact, they should probably spend more time just teaching history. The kids are smart enough to figure it out themselves.
  5. Once upon a time, Republicans were actually the progressives. Not so much today.
  6. I’ve been using a similar flipping stick for years, Berkeley 7’6”, 3/8-2 oz, 12-30 lb with an old daiwa reel, and 20 lb mono. It casts 2 oz great; not so much with 1 oz!
  7. Back in 2006 I worked for a company that built assemblies to refit our atomic submarines. Anybody here ever hear of DFARS? It states that any product used in a defense related product must be produced either domestically or by a NATO ally. If you can’t get components under those conditions you can’t use them unless you apply to the defense department for a waiver. Then wait up to six months for the OK to come through. Anyone willing to guess how many waivers I had to apply for to rebuild assemblies originally built in the 60s thru the 80s? This was in 2006. We haven’t been self sufficient for a long time, even when it comes to defense related materials.
  8. Oil was cheap pre-Biden largely because the pandemic greatly reduced consumption. Commodity markets are global and way above the pay grade of a US president.
  9. Nope. I’m saying that private industry will sell to whoever pays the highest price. We can promote anything we want, but corporate greed is the controlling factor, not whatever party controls the White House at any given moment.
  10. Actually, it’s Capitalism Capitalism Capitalism
  11. That’s what communist countries do. So are you a communist?
  12. The way I see it, the response to the OP’s question is this: Do you really think we should nationalize the oil industry? Because that’s what it would take to do what he suggests.
  13. I’d use it to toss chunks in the river for stripers. I probably don’t know any better though.
  14. The concept that the rich get richer and the poor get poorer is nothing new!
  15. I realize that. When they maintain their margins on rising commodity prices their profits rise. Bottom line is that rich corporations profit while the pain is borne by the bulk of the population. Not being political, just an observation.
