I ran across this from the Standard via HuffPost.  Someone is pushing alternate reality to compliment alternate facts.

"But here's the thing: None of that matters. Obama was a terrible president who shepherded the American economy through a weak-kneed recovery, increased partisan divisions, diminished America's presence abroad, abandoned our allies, and emboldened our foes. He trapped his party inside a flaming wreckage so terrible that it enabled Donald Trump to get elected president."

Bike bar mounts work for paddles, there are a few threads on here about them. Search "paddle mount".

Not sure about the rest.

They are from the big island I thInk. I paddled one as a rental a few years back but couldn't really comment beyond that. Seemed like regular factory boards but they might have changed, as I said, been a while.

A few "sore losers" of our past prez, and not the brightest bulbs in the package.  I don't in any way shape or form believe the people in these pics represented the majority of those who didn't vote for and were not fans of our previous prez, but there were no shortage of them either.  I think referring to all the protesters now as sore losers is a bit childish.  And before anyone brings up the riots, anyone with a pulse knows good and well they do not represent the majority of us liberals.  In fact, the make us cringe.

The cold of the winter is a mental obstacle for me. I need to way ahead psych myself to pass it, commit to the session. Once suited up and in the water it's not that bad. Just gotta get up and over the idea of the cold.

I should have added that the only way I'm able to surf in winter is to put my suit on at home and drive to the beach in my suit. If I had to suit up at the beach, I would freeze before I got to the water. I don't know how people manage to suit up at the beach and still stay warm but many do. Board Stiff did it yesterday. Some people just have that inner furnace going all the time.

Those looked tasty on the initial drop, clean. What a shame they then walled up and needed an exit. But that's way better then not surfing at all. Great stoke.

I don't think the people out there reporting stuff took anything away from their stupid ass polls they so gleefully followed and courted up to that Tuesday last November.
It is actually pretty funny how that was interpreted.  The average of polls http://www.realclearpolitics.com/epolls/2016/president/us/general_election_trump_vs_clinton_vs_johnson_vs_stein-5952.html were only off to the actual results by 1 percent (well within the margin of error).  The polls weren't bad, people just read them as they wanted.
Hmmmm, 3.3 pre vs. 2.1 to end it. That is in the margin. No one should have been surprised nor thought a slam dunk based on that. Going down those numbers more seeing them broke out......Clinton seems to have far more favor in regards to Trump to make that small average (3.3) at the end. Not sure how that ends up that way. Maybe didn't look thorough enough. Doesn't really matter. Still a small number for anyone to consider something like an election a slam dunk. USA Today, Reuters, AP, ABC and others jump out as huge Clinton leads but many, many others as well. A few clicks more in and.......the little maps we kept seeing.

It is all about how they are looked at for sure. Anyways......

NPR I guess has been running a segment called something like "these divided states" for months.
"we are so divided" "the country is divided....." Oh my word. How many times have we heard that every day when you turn on or look at anything.
Weren't these for the most part women's marches yesterday?  I guess even in other places around the world as well but especially here?

I think anyone with some sort of sense would see the thinking and reasoning behind that, organizing women's marches so the new president would see.....I don't know...as a whole the group wants to be heard. It doesn't take a genius to realize there is reasoning to organizing such a thing considering things said. 
How did they turn in to just plain "protests" and "protesters". What am I missing? Something seems different here than say....something like the people up in the Dakotas. Those are protesters. I guess you get a bunch of people together to march for a cause then they are protesting but something seems different with this and it seems the flames are getting fanned and fueled by all sorts of other things.

I think the real voice for what this whole thing was supposed to be organized for has been lost in the tizzy turning it into an anti Trump rant and nothing else.

Obama was polarizing, Trump even more so I would say.
We'll be fine if people will just think with their own head and not with the one we are getting told to think with.
