    That other board will never admit they were wrong, all they do is bash Obama for letting the Iraq war become a disaster. They don't realize that's what it was from the beginning.

    You go to war with the rebar you have.

    So how do you guys keep up on this Iraq stuff?

    I admit to being too busy working followed by too busy fishing to keep up much less even care about the **** is going on there.

    I've fished so much the past 2 months that most of the days are a blur (one fishing trip runs into another) and I haven't watched any TV or read many news sites due to lack of interest the past 2 months.

    Thanks. Going to do some bass fishing in it tomorrow.

    Found it on Craigslist $450 less than new and it's less than 1 year old

    Nice kayak. Does that chair make it hard to paddle though?

    Not at all. Just need to make sure you have the right paddle length. Because of the adjustable chair, I need a 240 cm paddle.

    2:53 shows the hi/lo seat, 4:00 and 4:30 shows some paddling shots.

    Joe's a grandpa now so maybe he can strap his Jazzy scooter on top of the kayak?

    PS. Screw Iraq. They'll either get this under control or they won't.

    What emerges from Obama’s remarks is a portrait of cold-blooded realism. He thinks our invasion was reckless. He thinks we gave too many lives and spent too much money. He sees ISIS as a threat to regional stability, our oil supply, and our security from terrorism. He’s willing to use force, but only to the extent necessary to quash that threat. Beyond that, he’ll leave the restoration of Iraq to Iraqis. And if that means replacing Maliki, Obama won’t shed any tears.

    Pretty much nails it.
