There's nothing noble about the Patagonia play. A huge tax advantage. A nod to fake climate science. An endorsement of BLM, a self professed Marxist group that promotes racial hatred and division and intimidates businesses and the people who run them into adopting the WOKE agenda - all backed and endorsed by the Marxist elite and the governments they own.

Alvin seems like a good guy who is well respected and liked by many. I am saddened to hear he thinks about racism every day and that it affects his decisions and activities on a daily basis. My favorite movie of all time is The Shaw Shank Redemption - the story of a close friendship between a white man and a black man, in prison, living together and helping each other under a corrupt dictatorship (the Warden and the Guards). All races are victims of the racism narrative of The Left. There are small proportions of racists in all races around the world - White, Black, Asian, etc. In America, there are many successful blacks who are living the American Dream, in peace, right alongside their white neighbors. However, that's not the story that's going to be aired on the 6 o'clock News. The Liberal Left needs the division. They need the racism narrative. They need the black folk dependent on their "System". They need their votes. So they brainwash all of us into thinking it's bigger than it is, so some of us should feel guilty, and owe something because of the color of our skin - and some of us should be entitled to more equity or a racial advantage because of the color of our skin. The truth is, the Conservative Black American who pursues his/her own happiness and success and doesn't dwell on the ugly history or the ongoing Left Wing narrative is much happier and content than the Liberal-Left Black American who is dependent on "The Leftist Socialist System" that keeps him/her poorer and reminded of this so-called racial disadvantage and oppression that frankly does not exist anymore. Why can't we all just get along and help each other because we want to - not because we have to? We are not entitled to happiness. We are entitled to the pursuit of happiness. At least we are for now.

Climate change is a real thing, that has been going on since the beginning of time on Earth. We can't stop it, nor should we try to change the course of nature out of perceived necessity. Yes we should always strive to be better stewards of the environment and leave Earth a cleaner place when we die than it was was when we got here. But the non-scientific Climate change propaganda that's being pushed along with the extremely idiotic government policies that are scheduled for rollout within a decade, have nothing to do with saving the environment or controlling climate. Their purpose is solely for more control and less freedoms, to weaken America's standing in the world. America's industries operate cleaner than most other countries in the world. But that's not good enough? We must suffer and sacrifice more while other countries get a free pass and build new coal-fired power-generating plants faster than our government is able to shut our power plants down? And one more thing... we are told it's our fault that the weather is changing. It's another lie. Naturally occurring weather patterns like El Nino and El Nina have a far greater effect on the global weather patterns than we do. And while the government and large corporations tell us that we should change our way of life because it affects the weather, why do we allow the government and insurance companies to send flights of jet aircraft into the eye-walls of hurricanes to weaken and steer them, by releasing moisture absorbing chemicals that instantly dissipate the clouds? Is that not interfering with the natural balance in the environment? They've been doing this for more than 20 years.

All this yap, yap, yap about the Earth climate BS. If people are causing the demise of the planet--sobeit. The toothpaste is out of the tube. Those that want others to change their habits and they themselves can do what ever I say to you-GFY! If one is a real climate warrior, sell your car, sell your boat, go live in the woods, but don't burn a fire, or kill an animal, just hunt for tofu turkey and eat wild berries. BTW F**K George Floyd what about the political prisoners held in DC right now since Jan 6, 2021--this virtue signaling is noting more than pompous supercilious behavior.

RACISM. What is in a word? Look at Michael Jordan. Black man. Fabulously wealthy. Got there of his own volition. In other words finegan, he WORKED HIS BUTT OFF FOR IT. Do you honestly think he wakes up every day freaking out about how the evil white man has kept him down and repressed? Yeah me either. Saw a video of him on his awesome sportfisherman backing down to the dock, a white guy driving the boat, and all around looking at the guy with reverence. Did not look like to me there was much RACISM going on there at all.

George Floyd meets his demise in a drug addled out of control state. So is this RACISM also? Two black men, two way different outcomes. STFU about racism. All need to take responsibility for the world we create for ourselves period.

I wonder how many on this forum may have had waaay too many drinks at one time or another? There’s certainly a chance that said individuals were out of control and may have been a danger to somebody. I guess they should have been murdered also for the good of society? Give me a break!
Looks more like you have been drinking too much of the cool aid for quite a while. If anyone is a danger to society it’s you. I can see by your remarks that reality, reasoning and logic are not your thing. I just wonder what you are doing here in the Micro Skiff Forum. Don’t you have somewhere else to play?

That’s what I’m always wondering. I’d like to think Fin is just an instigator but now and then I think he’s truly brainwashed.

No, that’s the beauty of a public forum. If you don’t agree with my positions, you can always “ignore” me. I’m sorry if you feel uncomfortable outside your echo chamber!

Our biggest import from China is not electronics, crappy manufactured items or cheap clothes. It's arrogant climate virtue. If you look at worldwide carbon emissions you will see that China and India have increased theirs far more than we've decreased ours. In other words we've just exported the dirty work so the left can virtue signal. Like everything else with this administration, it's all a shell game, denial of fact or truth or an outright lie.

The government has been saying we’re all going to die from this or that for as long as I can remember and much longer than I have been alive and yet here we are! I thought all the glaciers were supposed to melt and we are supposed to be underwater over a decade ago? But...but...but the science has changed! Yeah the science only changes because it’s not science in the first place, it’s a bunch of false narratives to perpetuate trauma based mind control and apparently it’s working on many of you...I’m disappointed in a few of you that should know better by now but you’re too proud to back out now since you’ve based your lives around bullshit you’ve been lied to about to manipulate you.
News flash...the sea levels have not changed and “climate change” is propaganda. Before you talk shit, yes it has changed because it’s always changing. That’s how a cyclic system works and none of us have been on earth long enough to even see much of the parabola. It’s like trying to see the curve of the earth by looking at the horizon.

The mere fact that many of you bought the covid bullshit discounts your judgement. It wasn’t hard to see through that from day one and a few of us warned you it was nonsense from the beginning too. You don’t have to be a “scientist” or an “expert” to know better.
Well smack you are right and wrong. Science can change. Example the hole in the ozone. We were using cfcs like they were going out of style, hole getting bigger. Stopped using, hole getting smaller.
Climate is VERY complex. Scientist can estimate change, but everything is at a decadal scale. Our change last decade slowed climate change then things changed again. Our global leadership works on news cycles not decadal scales. Our ocean 72% of the surface of our earth chemically reacts to green house gases. Scientists understand the fundamentals of that, but have yet put a number on how much co2 is sequestered. Then we have people clear cutting the amazon .
I guess what I am saying is sea level rise won't kill you in your lifetime. Will the reshaping of our critical habitats happen sure. Just in time for the next ice age.

I’m all about being mindful of the environment but you know as well as I do that a majority of the crap the government and activists are pushing is not about science or helping the environment, it’s to control the masses. All I see is nonsense about eliminating oil and gas production and pushing towards green energy…but the green energy they are pushing is not green at all.

Wasn’t our Climate Zar recently in Africa telling the Africans not to use natural gas, which they have, as a fuel source for millions! By the way he flew over in his private jet, has several mansions, many cars, walls around his mansions, travels with armed body guards. This is our Government official representative for global warming.

I can see your science acumen Smack yes E=mc2 More and more humans using a finite amount of space will heat the planet! Global warming has existed forever. It’s true all is cyclical

Dang politics and fishing !! I fish so I don’t have to listen to the spewing of the ignorance I hear. The best fisherman I’ve met are the worst racists on the planet, but they sure can fish! They don’t even know the color of their own ancestors, but they are real good on the water. Politics ?? You might have voted for that crazy slumlord from New York because your a Republican, or because you hate paying taxes, or you don’t want that money going to anybody that looks different from you. I don’t vote party, I vote for people.. I get it wrong all the time.. but I am a so fishy!! I was raised in a poor neighborhood, about half white, and half a blend of cultures. I think it made me a richer person! 🐠🐠🐠

You and the other nine fools should start your own forum so you can bounce ignorant woke BS off each other and not catch any static from people who can think for themselves and don’t rely on CNN and radical left woke news corporations for their beliefs.

Whether you believe in his efforts, or not, that guy built one hell of a business out of nothing. It seems he has now figured out how to protect it from the pending IRS wave, at precisely the right moment. And, he avoided $1.2B in taxes while being applauded by the anti-corp crowd. That is pretty impressive.

Also, can the moderators make this post "sticky", as an example of a derailed thread? 😂🤣

Also, some of you really need more sex in your lives. A lot more.

Well you voted for someone clearly suffering from dementia chosen only to pick up enough moderate votes to let his big government, socialist handlers get a hold on the reins. They nominated a cabinet of incompetents including a secy of energy who doesn't know how much oil we use in a day, a secy of transportation who thinks roads are racist and a secy of defense who orchestrated the Afghanistan withdrawal. Their financial irresponsibility has resulted in historic inflation. Their preference for perpetrators over victims has led to record violent crime. They have created an illegal immigration crisis and cry foul when it comes to their neighborhood. It's not about race but that's the only way the one trick ponies on the left can rally the people they've held back with the misaligned incentives of their handouts.
