From the comments or from Donna because from the picture and the caption it seems that she is full of hate for the President. 

And..?

...it's quite brilliant. Her and Burton will benefit hugely from the tax cuts.  She can then also shit talk the President so the dipshit neo-liberals can eat it up and feel good about themselves buying Burton products.  I am by no means a Trump supporter, but talking shit about any President is not my thing. I will however talk shit about liberals...lots and lots of shit...especially the "super" progressive ones...

not a terrible idea to know what a term means before you use it, especially when name-calling. 

as matty said, this should make too much sense to even draw interest. 

the real question: how many mm of taper does it have?

1. Her and Burton will benefit from tax cuts

>> There's lots of other ways she and Burton can do this. 

2. She can then also shit talk the President so the dipshit neo-liberals can eat it up and feel good about themselves buying Burton products.

>> Where did she shit-talk the president??

Dipshit neo-liberals? huh?!

....It seems YOU are more into shit-talking a 'group' than her post was. Literally.

3. I am by no means a Trump supporter, but talking shit about any President is not my thing.

>>hahahaha suuuuuure. But again... where did she talk shit about the president? 

I recommend you read her post again. It's called protest. It may not be YOUR thing.... but it seems it is hers. And I think the law is more on HER side than it is on yours.... at least the law in the U.S.A. 😉 you know... democracy and all that.

4. I will however talk shit about liberals...lots and lots of shit...especially the "super" progressive ones...

>>Case in point.

 

So i went into her Instagram and gave her the snowflake and peace sign. $5 to POW and $5 to Camber...

Because I like Pow. And I like Camber. hah!

Anybody who is genuinely not into criticizing their national leaders belongs to a very small minority.  Anyone who seeks to stifle others' criticisms of their national leaders is asking for tyranny.  Democracy can't thrive where scrutiny is reviled.  

I think they should sell it as a late, late-release.  They could call it the Pissface.

I'd buy one in a heartbeat.   I've already checked and they are not selling them.   My "TRUMP SKIS IN JEANS" sticker will have to do for now.

at least they are transparent with where their money is going in this instance and they are empowering people to take a part in their donation via commenting if said person also believes in those organizations/principles (POW and Camber).  There is a lot of wealth and therefore influence that isn't always quite so transparent.  They may secretly donate to Monsanto too, who knows, but I would like to think a post like that is beneficial to the POWs, Cambers, Surfriders of the world and perhaps motivates others to give a few bucks to something they believe in.  We judge others a lot and go negative pretty quickly, but last I checked the NRA and NRDC both still exist and the pendulum is always swinging in society; but hopefully we keep progressing (......to Mars cuz Earth is fucked)

 Courier dropped off a '19 Burton Custom 166W today whilst I was at work. Couldn't wait to get home. Been doing heaps of O/T lately so thought to myself..., mate you deserve a little treat.

It felt like Xmas opening the box. Still wrapped in plastic, only just arrived in store. Grabbed it at almost 20% off RRP. Looks soooooooo sweet.

So a few more months of waiting for winter to hit in Australia but can't wait to Christen it. Gave it a good iron up with Hertal FC739. Feels like it's ready to launch.

Will mate this board up with '18 Genesis EST "Painted Wood".

Will do a riders review in a couple of months.

  

Burton Custom 166W 1

Fresh out of the plastic. Looks really good. Top sheet colours so sweet. Love the timber.

 

Burton Custom 166W 2

Base profile looks great as well. Sort of a charcoal like colour.

 

Burton Custom 166W 3

 Traditional directional camber. Can't go wrong here.

 

Burton Custom 166W 4

Added a little bit of artistic flare for some of the kit I use.

I convince myself of a lot of things, but this is just great.  I'm going to start justifying things to myself with this exact wording.  What a great mantra lol; also board looks great in the real-life pics; way better than catalog pics imo; nice pickup!

Yeah agree, but I think I got lucky and got the best top sheet design. Not as much of a lover for the white and timber nose combo.

(The guys who were working for the independent reps get benefits and are salaried now from B, from what I’ve heard..?)

What does that mean?  I'm not an industry guy, so I don't know what would distinguish an independent rep from any other rep, but I'm interested.

I think Custom is set back either 10 or 12mm.
