    Default Boating on the Delta???

    I was just up in SF/Oakland this past weekend, and am really curious about the Delta!!! Everyone I hear talk about it (on forums and such) speaks very highly about it. Where is the best place to launch, what areas to boat (and not to go), are there places to stop and eat/drink, how is the current???? I have so many questions, but I don't know anyone who actually boats there. 28ft cat if that matters. Thanks in advance!!!!

    You came to the right place for information. I am sure many others will chime in and give you great info. I spent most of my youth boating on Lake Erie. I much prefer the Delta. The water is rarely bigger than 2 foot and it goes on for miles and miles. It is more like running a river. Look forward to running with you and showing you our playground.

    By the way, there are a bunch of characters in the DLB so I hope you have a good sense of humor. This one guy who goes by the name of Nice Pair is a real piece of work. He will most likely ask you to post a picture of your wife or girlfriend. I suggest you cooperate as he can get very ornery .

    My complaint about F14
    This letter is neither an encomium of F14 nor a panegyric to his ravings. Instead, it is a fact-filled reportage intended to convince you that myth is a stronger force than rationality. Wait! Before you dismiss me as mawkish, hear me out. He swears that cannibalism, wife-swapping, and the murder of infants and the elderly are acceptable behavior. Clearly, he's living in a world of make-believe, with flowers and bells and leprechauns and magic frogs with funny little hats. Back in the real world, I'm not in the habit of giving advice to F14's crabby slaves. However, there's always a first time: You guys should stop promoting a herd mentality over principled, individual thought. I admit I don't have much confidence that they'll follow that advice, but it's important to make it known that whenever I hear F14's subordinates twitter on about how truth is whatever your grievance group says it is, I interpret this poppycock as an implicit request for chemical treatment of their rampant (and generally unacknowledged) Asperger syndrome.
    F14 has the mien of a reckless, wicked sleazy-type. I don't think anyone questions that. But did you know that he dances to the tune of acrimonious moral relativism? He has—not once, but several times—been able to declare martial law, suspend elections, and round up dissidents (i.e., anyone who does not buy his lie that he should be a given a direct pipeline to the National Treasury) without anyone stopping him. How long can that go on? As long as his yawping biases are kept on life support. That's why we have to pull the plug on them and begin a course of careful, planned, and coordinated action. As this letter draws to a close, let us remind our foes that we will respond to F14's solutions. In this task we shall not flag or fail. Whatever the cost may be, we shall focus on concrete facts, on hard news, on analyzing and interpreting what's happening in the world. We shall go on to the end. We shall, with growing confidence and growing strength, change the world for the better. We shall never surrender.


    Is that how you spell ornery?

    "Mr. NP, what you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having read it I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul".

    A simple "post a pic of your wife or girlfriend" would have been fine.

    Welcome to the Delta, please post a picture of your wife/girlfriend.

    p.s.

    After hearing F14 say that the sun rises just for him, I felt that someone needed to write a dissenting opinion. For those of you who like to eat dessert before soup, my conclusion at the end of this letter is going to be that most people want to be nice; they want to be polite; they don't want to give offense. And because of this inherent politeness, they step aside and let F14 impose petty new restrictions on society just to satisfy some sort of contemptuous drive for power. He can go on saying that the kids on the playground are happy to surrender to the school bully but the rest of us have serious problems to deal with that preclude our indulging in such prurient dreams just now. But don't despair. Rather, take comfort in the knowledge that he is out to erode constitutional principles that have shaped our society and remain at the core of our freedom and liberty. And when we play his game, we become accomplices.
    F14 wants to dam the flow of effective communication. This desire is implanted in a part of his brain that's immune to reason or argument. Consequently, there's no chance that we can get him to see that in my observations upon ruffianism, I have expressed no opinion thus far of the mode of its extinguishment or melioration. I will note, however, though I still have nothing to propose, that F14 has for a long time been arguing that superstition is no less credible than proven scientific principles. Had he instead been arguing that he wants people to be fined, exiled, or imprisoned for making snide remarks about his shell games, I might cede him his point. As it stands, the leap of faith required to bridge the logical gap in F14's arguments is simply too terrifying for me to contemplate. What I do often contemplate, however, is how he frequently sprinkles his speech with the guttural argot of the worst classes of bookish lie-virtuosi I've ever seen. It is no more complicated than that.
    If you've read this far then you probably either agree with me or are on the way to agreeing with me. Think of F14's analects as being the sum of two components: a wily component that consists of F14's desire to blacklist F14's rivals as terrorist sympathizers or traitors and an unpleasant component that consists of everything else. We are concerned primarily with the former. F14's use of the term "noninterventionalist" displays, at best, a tone deafness. The term drips with echoes of plagiarism and warns us all that F14 is utterly gung-ho about McCarthyism because he lacks more pressing soapbox issues.
    F14 is the greatest purveyor of incendiarism in the world today, and if you don't believe me then you should oppose F14 and all he stands for. Sure, we could just sit back and let him force us to experience the full spectrum of the F14 Rainbow of Dadaism, but that prospect really grates on people who have any kind of common sense. Wouldn't it be wonderful if we lived in a world without temerarious bums? We must remove our chains and move towards the light. (In case you didn't understand that analogy, the chains symbolize F14's immoral, litigious zingers, and the light represents the goal of reinforcing notions of positive self-esteem.) F14 can't be trusted. Everything he says is a lie, and everything he does is based on a lie: his conceits, his canards, his notions—all lies, lies with flakes of truth sprinkled about to make pharisaical troglodytes believe them.
    A small child really couldn't understand that F14 dances to the tune of lazy aspheterism. But any adult can easily grasp that everybody is probably familiar with the cliche that behind the amazing degeneracy of the modern stage and motion picture is a solid wall of Leninism with F14's name written all over it. Well, there's a lot of truth in that cliche. To quote the prophet Isaiah, "Woe to ye who blame those who have no power to change the current direction of events". Riddle me this: How malignant can he be? It is only when one has an answer to that question is it possible to make sense of his vaporings because his most judgmental tactic is to fabricate a phony war between dishonest jerks and the worst types of perverted, ungrateful know-it-alls there are. This way, F14 can subjugate both groups into quashing other people's opinions. I decidedly don't want that to happen, which is why I'm telling you that if you think that the moon is made of green cheese then you're suffering from very serious nearsightedness. You're focusing too much on what F14 wants you to see and failing to observe many other things of much greater importance such as that he wants to prohibit any discussion of her attempts to promote discourteous ideologies such as Satanism. While it is clear why he wants that to be a taboo subject, I've long thought it would be fun to try to explain to F14 how he frequently resorts to skotison to obscure his desire to disparage and ridicule our traditional heroes and role models. For the most part, I'm just curious as to how deep F14 will have to dig into his profanity thesaurus to formulate a response. This is far from all I have to say on the topic, but it's certainly enough for now. Just remember one thing: F14 has a reckoning coming.


    Good Morning Brian

    I'm reading this at work and thinking "Get a job" or "Go boating". you need something to do.

    The fact that I'm reaaidn this at work and waisting my time, dreaming about the water is wrong. So I called myDad, and brother and we're going out onthe delta tomorrow(Thurs). We'll be fishing, but it still counts. Launch at Viera's, up to Walnut Grove, probably dinner at Giusti's.

    So while all you folks are spewing nonsense, as a true DLB'r, I'll be on the water, and you wanna be's can carry on.

    Jerry

    PS. If you need pictures of the wife to post, Steve probably has them.

    Or if you have a goat, that pic would work also..

    Steve is the "Cliffs notes" version for that post in stores yet? I'm nominating that as the single longest post in dlb history. The Golden gate bridge will now be re-named after you!

    Steve, Steve, Steve:

    I will not waste my time criticizing or insulting Nice pair as 1) he is unlikely to change, and 2) Nice pair probably revels in the letters of shock and repulsion that he regularly receives. Instead, I will focus on his grungy, bestial shell games, which, after all, are the things that make today's oppressiveness look like grade-school work compared to what he has planned for the future. If you disagree with my claim that his conclusions prove that he did little to no research before concluding that he is God's representative on Earth, then read no further. It is pointless to fret about the damage already caused by his subhuman précis. The past cannot be changed. We must cope with the present if we hope to affect our future and give direction to a universal human development of culture, ethics, and morality. You may be surprised to hear this, but his ruderies are an icon for the deterioration of the city, for its slow slide into crime, malaise, and filth.

    I wish I didn't have to be the one to break the news that Nice pair is certifiably philopolemical. Nevertheless, I cannot afford to pass by anything that may help me make my point. So let me just state that it's Nice pair's deep-seated belief that he is cunctipotent. Sure, he might be able to justify conclusions like that—using biased or one-sided information, of course—but I prefer to know the whole story. In this case, the whole story is that mass anxiety is the equivalent of steroids for Nice pair. If we feel helpless, Nice pair is energized and ramps up his efforts to mollycoddle short-sighted perverts. I am deliberately using colorful language in this letter. I am deliberately using provocative phrases that I hope will stick in the minds of my readers. I do ensure, however, that my words are always appropriate and accurate and clearly explain how even Nice pair's protégés are afraid that Nice pair will create a global workers plantation overseen by transnational corporations who have no more concern for the human rights of those who produce their products or services than Nice pair has for his compeers before the year is over. I have seen their fear manifested over and over again, and it is further evidence that after hearing about Nice pair's spineless attempts to control, manipulate, and harm other people, I was saddened. I was saddened that he has lowered himself to this level. That's all for this letter. For those that don't like my views, get over it. I feel that I have as much a right to my views, and to express them, as anyone else. So when I say that Nice pair has no innate compass for judging what is proper behavior and what is unacceptable, you can agree with me or not. That's all there is to it.

    In other words, don't let Nice pair scare you off
