Is that supposed to be a burn or something?

duppy: Must be nice to have that kind of money.


I grew up there.  My guess is we're all looking at a lot of unregistered boats with unqualified people manning them, who don't pay for shiat.  For as rural as it is up there, things can get very weird and very loud, very quickly.

True fact: Buying a boat is a pretty stupid thing to do.

Another true fact: Voting for Trump is also very stupid.

Inescapable conclusion: Boat Owners who support Trump are most likely the dumbest people in any room.

I have no sympathy for any Trump voters.  They knew they were going to vote for him again no matter who the Democratic nominee was.  It could literally be the second coming of Jesus Christ himself and they will still vote for Trump.  They now have validation to care only about themselves and demonize everyone else.  They subscribe to Trump's credo:  Either the victor or victim, never the villain.  The US is going to have to have bold leadership, the willingness of its people to make sacrifices and a good amount of time to undo the damage Trump and his salivating horde had done to this country

Did these people feel this way about him before he was president? Is just because he's president and allegedly Republican? Is it his racism and superficial patriotism? WTF is it that they love so much about him? Why are his fans so ready and willing to make ridiculous displays to praise him? WHY?!

AND WTF IS A BOAT PARADE?

I grew up 20-30 minutes from two huge lakes and have never heard of a boat parade

KarmicDisaster: Biden should have a parade of Trans Ams.


Local car clubs have been doing Friday evening car shows at the local Dairy Queen every summer since forever. I happened to drive past while it was going on last week and it was packed out with people, none wearing masks or trying to social distance. What made me really mad was seeing a woman there who looked to be about 8 months pregnant with about 4 little kids swarming around her, the whole lot maskless. There was however no shortage of red hats among that crowd.

/might be worth checking estate sales for classic car deals soonish

SpaceyCat: Is a boat parade supposed to be something special?


Maybe we're misinterpreting the parade and they are rubbing it in Trump's face?

Huh, I guess we can add boats to another thing Trump is stupidly afraid of, the brave alpha male he is...

"It so terrified him when they weighed anchor -- the movement convinced him it was sinking -- that he would never sleep on it," wrote O'Donnell in his book Trumped!. "All the time it was docked at the marina, he went on board only to watch boat races or occasionally to entertainment important customers or business associates."

The glee they experience from pissing off the libs? The conviction that once they burn it all down, they'll claim their rightful places at the top of the heap? The prospect of proving to others and themselves that they're not sad mediocrities who never lived up to their potential?

What a missed opportunity! Trump should have climbed aboard the Trump Princess and taken her for a spin (the yacht, not the daughter.) What's that you say? The Princess was repoed and finally sold at a loss of $10 million, after he made upgrades including the addition of a pool, cinema and clinic? If only he'd bring his business savvy to bear on his Presidency, imagine what he could accomplish.

I worked at a marina for a few years. I met one truly satisfied boat owner. He bought a boat that morning and spent all day boating with his family. At the end of the day, while walking down the dock back to the parking lot he had a heart attack and died.

That man enjoyed every moment he had with that boat.

mrparks: NM Volunteer: mrparks: Glockenspiel Hero: A Trump boat parade sounds like a great idea.  Here's the best flagship for it

[Fark user image image 800x600]

Na, this one is better. Literally, the exact item which is pictured. I need to make that clear.

[3.bp.blogspot.com image 615x461]

A fictional pirate ship, versus a real flagship that literally sunk the first time they tried to sail it because it was too top heavy (and because nobody had the guts to tell the king that his prized flagship was a shiatty design)?

No...a plastic model of a ship.

/I also failed to grasp the symbology of the ship in the OP.


Glockenspiel Hero posted an image of the Vasa, a Swedish ship that sailed 1400 yards from the docks before sinking, because it was way too top-heavy.  It had the strongest broadside of any ship of the time, but the bits below the waterline were way too shallow for its length and height.  The Swedish admiralty was not willing to tell Gustav II Adolf that his brand-new warship was complete crap.  It was eventually found, brought up from the bottom of the harbor, and displayed in a museum.  It is a great allegory of the Tiny Dick Daughterfarker administration.

Mr. Parks posted an image of a snap-tite plastic model of a generic "pirate ship", that does not represent an actual specific ship.

I still think there should be a crowd sourced effort at mapping all the yards with Trump flags. Help to identify the neighborhood racists and if enough people do it I'm sure they would think it was a Bill Gates, Deep State surveillance plot to take their guns and or freedums.
