Re: Report: Rick Snyder to be indicted

Kinda looks like a bad year for big shot business types trying to run governments like a company.

Re: Good Recommendation for Car Air Compressor?

I have a Black n Decker model that plugs into the lighter. You set the pressure you want, turn it on and it stops when desire psi is reached. Only thing I wished I had done was to get the plug in/battery model that uses the same lithium batt. as all my yard tools.

Re: Fascists' storm The US capital.

The Hill reports that 13 arrests were made today.
For reference, there were 14,000+ arrests at the George Floyd protests.

Can it be white privilege that means nobody cracks any heads and just waves them in?

Re: Sensual songs

Ian Whitcomb's 'You Turn Me On' it actually made it to no. 8. It was meant to be a joke recording.

Re: The Olympic Games Have Jumped The Shark

Maybe just me but I lost interest when the PRO'S started competing. It was amateur's not million dollar folks. I was paid for coaching high school track several years after I had competed and the AD, as he paid me, said, "If you want to compete again you'll have to pay this all back." Then the rules...

Re: Stimulus Package is Done - 900B

Twitter says that the deduction for the '3 martini lunch' was a GOP request and it got put in. That will help all the folks facing eviction.

Re: Evolution of Cable TV Channels.

AMC took some heat for airing the old B/W movies and they decided about the time TCM came around that they would take on commercials and show newer color films.

Re: WJR "Kaleidoscope" Host Mike Whorf Dies

Every Sunday morning 9:15? was the Kipplinger sales pitchman. 15 minutes of trying to sell you a subscription and always closing with the "Opportunity will knock, but YOU must answer the door."
Anyone remember the show about 6pm Sun on JR called "Hawaii Calling" ?

Re: Telegraph?

I remember spending time in the small town train depot sitting just outside the office window so I could listen to the telegraph clicking away and marveled at the operator being able to talk to people and still read the code coming out. That was maybe '57? The traffic was rail related in nature.

Re: Dirty Harry / Movies! TV Network 2.2 Censor Screwup

Some years ago for some reason CBC was going to replay a classic hockey game late night. I set the VCR and the next day it was nothing but infomercials. I called CommieCast and got the run around. I tried to explain to the lady that CBC is Government owned and they don't run paid for shows like that...
