approval ratings

"A Quinnipiac University poll taken July 8-13 found that a scant 14 percent of likely voters approved of the way congress is handling its job. That percentage is below the 26 percent who approved of President Bush's performance"

fishorgolf, please provide us with a survey in the past 30 years where Congress has been approved of more than any president.

Gee fishgolf, somebody kick your dog today? Touchy touchy!

I *believe* your implication was "See how unpopular the Democrats in Congress are" & if you'd read what I wrote, my return implication is "Congress as a whole is always less popular than any horrifically unpopular president."

I feel much better now that I've spelled that out in black & white.

Maximum 12 fishergolf must be board he keeps repeating the same thing. He doesnt mention repubs have the same amount of seats as dems minus one and we have a repub president does he. Anybody that may fallow politics knows in a lame duck senerio nothing substantial gets done. And ofcourse people are frustrated that nothing is getting done. It would be same if the parties would be switched in positions. To insinuate it is one parties fault just shows hes trying to stir up confrotation.

No disrespect fishergolf, I'm a little smarter than I think I am to fall into that trap or did I just release that trap

You are ASSuming why I posted that quote. All I did was post a quote and I get accused of being bias with nothing whatsoever to back that claim up. I posted that quote to show that the people are not to high on how "both" the executive and legislative branches are doing there jobs right now and that it is not just a one sided problem.

    • We live in some sort of Bizarro world now - Sarah Palin calling Trump sinfully stupid.     Here's another one from Ann Coulter, who literally wrote a book "In Trump We Trust"    
    • You do realize that if the taxes were done that way, the cities would get $2.53 billion richer, and rural areas would get $2.53 billion poorer. The 7 county metro pays substantially more taxes (nearly 2/3 of the states total) than the other 80 counties in Minnesota combined, but only receives roughly half of the state expenditures.   Sorry to break it to you, but rural America is not fiscally solvent. Those citiots you speak of are bankrolling the entire country. It's easy to see on this chart: more urban states are to the left (givers) and more rural states are to the right (takers).  
    • I tried to purchase the screws yetti uses from Fastenal who is their vendor for the screws. They are only sold in large reels designed for a self loading screwgun. I finally called Casey at Glacial lake docks where I purchased my yetti and he sent me out the amount I needed. They work great to add additional fir strips. The plastic used to tie them together comes right off as you screw them in. Hope that helps. 
    • Sorry...was wrong on the specs.   Manufacturer is Core Ice.  It was 1450# for a 12' and 1250# for a 8'.  
    • I believe you want to use a zinc coated or galvanized steel according to the charts.  I'm sure someone will come along to correct me
    • In the back room there is a company that is using bonded foam panels (similar to garage door panels, but really clean looking), and had weights of 1250# for a 12' and 1450# for a 16'.  Aluminum trailer frames that could convert to a skid frame.  Can't recall the name.  I'm sure they were spendy, but I can see a concept like that going somewhere for the hardcore fishing crowd.   Yetti, Firebrand, Big Bite, and Glacier all had really nice display models.      Lots of campers (disguised as fish houses) out there at prices that make me want to jump into the business.  I was in two different manufacturers houses with prices well over $30k that had wire nuts for connections.  That is going to be a fun adventure for someone 2-3 years down the road when they find out their manufacturer saved $15 on their wiring.           
    • Thank you for all the help!  Ended up going with the Marcum VS485C.  After some research, there were a few other Marcums that were on the list (825 & 625), the Aqua Vu HD, and the Pan Cam.  The mini cams from all manufactures weren't what I was looking for, but they are cool and do have their place.     After seeing everything in person, I think the Aqua Vu HD had the best camera/screen.  The Marcums were a little bit behind, but the 825, 625, 485, and Pan Cam had similar real life clarity.  The 485 won out because of the $300 price point vs the others at $450-700, and was almost identical for resolution, other than the HD.
      I honestly think these cameras are all about 5+ years behind in technology in comparison to the broader camera/tv screen market.  Running off a 7-9ah battery is probably one of the limiting factors.  Another may be the cold.  The main reason (IMO) is that the manufacturers are hoping they can incrementally rape us by trickling out technology each year, similar to the computer manufacturers of the 90s/early 2000's.  For the price of a middle of the road underwater camera, I can buy a Chinese made 50" TV (these all have Chinese made 5-8" screens) and a GoPro or Sony Action Cam (which is 10x's the picture quality).
