Re: Brandon Roux..WTF is his problem?

I know Brandon has some quirks. However it appears he is struggling with his health. He has diabetes, his son also has it..... About a month ago he was doing the weather from home. The weather map was up. He wasn't on screen. He quit talking mid sentence. About maybe 7 seconds of silence. Then Rhon...

Re: Trust In Media Is At An All Time Low

The entire industry suffers from incompetence and bias that they won't recognize enough to make an effort to correct it. Suck it up snowflakes. It's a wonderful time to be an American... That makes no sense. Are you proud and excited that the industry has fallen to such incompetency? I agree with k...

I honestly think the country would benefit from many parties. I see liberals branching out and the Moderate Democrats and Republicans merging.
I ponder if many parties may result in more gridlock. No one would have a majority.

Re: The MAGA Party

.... As the Biden administration gets some successes under their belt, the threat of a 3rd party will fade just like all the others before it .... I may disagree with this. It's true a Trump led, or Trump inspired platform don't stand a chance. But I think back to Perot dropping out twice and still...

Re: Misuse of Ham Radio

The Capitol insurgents were carrying radios capable of being programmed for ham radio frequencies. Literally every two-way radio used by any business or government is capable to be programmed for ham radio frequencies. Don't confuse the Beofengs that preppers carry around as ham radios. OPP radios, ...

Who do you think would win?
I wonder. I'm thinking it would put a serious hurt on the votes the Republicans get. But not much of a dent (if any) on the Democratic vote. Truly would be an interesting process.

Re: The MAGA Party

So your thoughts on the success of a MAGA party in 2024. Either Trump or a Trump endorsed candidate. Even if impeached, he can still give his seal of approval to someone else.

A three way race.
The Democrats vs. what's left of the Republicans vs. those who voted for Donald.
Interesting.

Re: My Christmas Present Has Arrived!

I was looking at the models on CCrane's website, but the radios they have with SSB run about twice what this one cost. Looking on the 'net, you have a DSP version of the Kaito KA1103. I found the manual for the KA1103. You may or may not (I could not find any side pictures of your radio) have a SSB...

Keeping the price of gas low

So I read someone posting something on another blog. I'll not get it exact, but here ya go: Even the slightest reduction in gas consumption will make the price of gas fall. Everyone just doing the speed limit would make the price of gas fall. This person (don't know if it was a guy or a gal) says ev...

This is just the first move on what will become an ongoing war on oil and coal. Say goodbye to our current state of energy independence and 2.20 a gallon gasoline.
I'm going to start another thread on how some think we could keep gas under $1.

Re: Harris & Pence 2024??

...and I think if she does take the reigns for a year or two that she'll be an utter disaster of a President, even by Democrat standards, hence, why I think she'd be primaried. But that's the thing. No one else in the party is going to want to run against her if she's the sitting president in 2024....

Re: Harris & Pence 2024??

... On the Democrat side, I don't see either Biden or Harris as the nominee in 2024. I don't know who it will be, but if I had to bet on it, I would say someone other than either of those 2 ... I dunno about all that. I'm in agreement about Biden. He won't run. But it sure seems to me that Harris i...

With any luck, we will get some good pictures of her having a good time at the inaugural festivities today. Those photos will make good content for campaign ads against her.

Be careful going to that website you linked, Freak.
My Black Ice Defender had some issues with it.
That site may be a little more intrusive than you think.

Re: Harris vs Pence 2024??

Me personally, I can't shag the feeling Pence has no desire to be an elected official again. Maybe run around suck up some speaking fees. Serve on some high paying boards. Write a book. Be a commentator on Fox News. That sort of thing.

But not run for office.
