Re: Trump admin to move to relax school meal standards

If local folks can't find it important enough to vote in folks they think are representative to their local area then shame on them and they get what they deserve. So the children get what they deserve, in your view? I was going to ask the same thing... that’s a hard sell... The PARENTS and constit...

Re: Trump admin to move to relax school meal standards

Just because someone in Washington doesn't say "you must do it this way", doesn't mean you should not have the freedom and control to do what needs to be done locally. So are you advocating for no federal standards whatsoever? Just curious. I know how local school boards are run. The politics insid...

CKLW 20/20 News

Just stumbled across this youtube about the "Golden Years" of 20/20 news. I remember it but it's interesting to hear some of those involved in it describe the evolution:

Re: Trump admin to move to relax school meal standards

The federal government should have NO BUSINESS dictating what kids eat in schools. If YOU want your local schools to have decent meals for the kids then YOU should go to school board meetings or run for the school board. It should be the LOCAL SCHOOL BOARD that dictates these actions, not someone fr...

Re: Trump Planning To Take $7.2 Billion More From Pentagon For Border Wall

I don't have any problem with them building the wall, or getting funding for it. However, I do think it is ridiculously expensive. I'd like to see some effort at some cost control. Some folks are getting pretty rich slapping up that wall.

Re: FOX2 Mornings hit with the Lue Flu

Derek Kevra and Allen Longstreet give me the creeps . Especially Kevra. I think I figured out Longstreets "creep" factor. I never really saw it but have heard that from many folks, so I've tried to look for things that might make me feel that way. Today I noticed his posture (shoulders leaning forw...

Re: November 2019 TV News Ratings

No. Devin Scillian is one of the oldest anchors and he’s still number one. Oh wait—you’re referring to the women. Of course you are. Jerk. Can we agree the #1 goal of a local newscast is to get as many people as possible to watch? So, and I'm honestly going extreme here to make a point: Let's say o...

Re: Weather hysterics

Well, I liked what Kevra said the other day when referencing the precipitation estimates for Fri-Sat. He said "the models are all over the place and are saying it could be zero or it could be 3... I'll say it could be more or it could be less... too early to tell!!" At least he was being honest.

Re: Passive Repeaters On Hilltops

I'm not familiar withe those movies. You sure you're not talking about a community antenna system (precursors to 'cable tv')? They would put a large antenna on the top of a hill, to pull distant stations, then run twin-lead down to all the houses on the other side of the hill. There were amplifiers ...
