No, the point is why do the democrats and media love the anti-fa?

That's your assertion. Can you show any examples?

In case you never noticed, "democrat' with a small 'd' is what we're all supposed to be. I think you're disappointed that the media doesn't treat your fellow brownshirts quite as gingerly as you would prefer.

You can trust your president to treat you guys with kid gloves, though.

I've got a Griego-Bousfield I'd like to trade. It has been played less than 5 hours and is in like new shape. Really like the sound, but the rim is too round for me.

Looking to trade for a Laskey 59D in similar condtion or some DE XT components, a C or D cup with a matching 3 shank would be perfect. Got other stuff in that size range that you want to trade? Shoot me an offer at hvaage1991@g m a i l.com!
It's still up for trades! I will sell for 100$ plus shipping as well. And offers are still welcome :)

Because "anti-fa" means anti-fascist, and no one likes fascists (except other fascists). You can't reasonably argue that the alt-right, neo Nazi, white supremist, fascists (and, yes, these are all synonyms and refer to the same people) are "fine people".

Part of the problem here is the terminology being used in the "debate." 
Ellrod is (understandably) using "anti-fascist" in a general way, referring to all those opposed to the increasingly bold gang of neo-Nazis, white supremacists, Klansmen, etc. of the sort that obtained a permit and marched in Charlottesville.  MOST reasonable Americans (and yes, Canadians and others) are opposed to these jerks. 

Dusty Dickerson (and I, now that I have learned the term anti-fa) are instead referring to the (sort of) organized, militant leftist "Anti-FA" (Anti-Fascist Action) provocateur movement as described in this article from the September 2017 issue of The Atlantic:   
https://www.theatlantic.com/magazine/archive/2017/09/the-rise-of-the-violent-left/534192/
These guys, and their tactics of confrontation and violence, are abhorrent - almost as bad as the fascists they oppose - and represent a danger to our democracy. 

Where Dusty, in his paranoia, gets it wrong is that he thinks if you oppose the fascists (like most of us do), you must be one of the Anti-FA (few of us are).

Dusty, if by "the anti-fa" you mean the group of violence-inducing provocateurs who show up to do battle with the neo-Nazis, Klansmen, white supremacists and racists (e.g, the goons that showed up in Charlottesville alongside the peaceful, non-violent citizens) - I don't care for them at all, as I've said before - NOR do any Democrats I've met (I'm not one), NOR any mainstream media that I've encountered (I'm not one of them either), NOR does any Trombone Forum member who has participated in this lengthy discussion (mea culpa). 

Do you really believe that your assertion is true?
If so, based on what evidence?
If not, why do you persist on making these clearly phony claims?

You can't reasonably argue that the alt-right, neo Nazi, white supremist, fascists (and, yes, these are all synonyms and refer to the same people) are "fine people". And if you do respect and admire the fascists as "fine people, it likely means you're a fascist too. And that appears to be exactly where Don has put himself. There are no fake media reports of yesterday's press conference; it was all Don showing what he really thinks.

Not to belabor the point Gabe, and recognizing that the only real way to know is to personally try an instrument or combination, but which component would have the most profound effect on the upper register response and sound, a 7YM bell or a TW47 slide?  I know of a possible good deal on a 7YM so that might be a good first step but I wonder if I might notice more gains from changing to a TW47 slide. There's also a possibly good deal on a TB47YC slide but then wonder if that may play a lot like my 42 slide although I would be able to use a #1.5 or #2 pipe in it. To get an X taper tuning slide I may have to break down and buy new because I haven't noticed many of those for sale on the used market.

Thanks again for your insight into Shires history and bell designs as well as your own personal playing experience with these instruments!

Heh--awesome.
 
So no ... you can't unpack any of those comments, and obviously you didn't really want me to explain my challenges to them. And again your response was all about coming up with lines of text that seem vitriolic enough to communicate your sentiments in a way you think should somehow make me care and presumably regret challenging you.
 
Good luck with that.
 
Let me know if you figure out a way to make that post make sense (or even to indicate it's anything more than just another effort as described above, more or less).
And still no actual questions...

If you have nothing to ask, there must be nothing to "unpack". I can't read your mind, and have no intent to try.

Keep your Yamaha and add something like a King 4B-F, Benge 165F or Benge 190F.  Either can be had for around $1K.  I recommend the .547 since, if you have the choice, 3rd seat for concert band (or 4th in a jazz band) is more interesting than 2nd, unless you are doing traditional Big Band music, then 2nd is the solo seat.  The bigger horn will come in handy in 3rd or 4th and your Yamaha can play 2nd or 1st quite well.
