I could get Cleveland to watch the Monday Night Football Game blacked out in Detroit. It was the greatest invention for TV watching back i...

Re: RePack Phase 8 started

I did a re-scan and found I lost all of what was channel 19. They were there a week ago but now blank. TVO 32 registers as 19.1 due to their signal freq. One thing on the plus side was I added channels 6 and 53 out of Lansing.

Re: On a scale of 0-10, how worried are you about coronavirus?

Something to keep in mind is the use of antibiotics, some say overuse, the viruses mutate and try to outwit the current shots that's given to counteract it. The Spanish flu of 1919-20 took months to spread around the world due to what our transportation was. Today it can be as quick as 12 hours. It ...

Re: One Person, One Vote

17 States can elect the President.
IF California had the same ratio of people to electoral vote as WY it would have 270 votes by its self.
People count, cows and corn don't.

Fun fact... DC has more people than 3 other States and they don't get an electoral vote.

Re: 'Take her out': Recording appears to capture Trump at private dinner saying he wants Ukraine ambassador fired

The thug language is one thing but it shows that he (trump) knows Lev P. The guy who he says he didn't know and just hung around to get his pic taken. Sounds like the 'can I have a pic' guy is helping craft foreign policy. Has anyone read Fifth Risk by M. Lewis yet? It fills a lot of questions as to...

I worked for a company that wasn't into pollution but they managed to destroy the ground water for a large area. It was economics that did it. Cheaper to let the contaminates sat for 15 years when the safe life expectancy was 10years. Follow the money....

Re: Greta Thunberg

I found it interesting that Mnuchin says Greta need an econ degree to be listened to. Ocasio-Cortez HAS one and they said she didn't know what she was talking about. Which one is it then? This from the guy whose boss says he likes the poorly educated. From the guy who foreclosed on an old lady becau...

Re: How to interact with cops

I always try to asses if the officer has a sense of humor by asking, "Are you looking for trouble?"
It is amazing how many don't.

Re: Three CBS-Owned CW Stations Add Nightly News

Was in Tampa last summer and saw the CBS 11 pm news and I've seen 4th grade plays that looked more professional. The writing was like reading the text of a POTUS speech and people walking in front of the camera shot blocking the reporter. It was like watching a train wreck... but you couldn't turn a...

Re: Need Some Help Understanding

Didn't Ask this old house cover the toilet thing some time back? I think I remember them talking about the 1st gen. low flow had problems but better engineering has smoothed out the flow so to say.
Maybe the problem is that some folks are more full of shit than others.

Re: Iran shoots it's own?

This whole thing reminds me of the movie The Bedford Incident, where a sailor who is so stressed out from his superiors, that he launches a missile when he overhears the Capt say the word 'fire' in a discussion on the bridge. Sitting here it can be hard to imagine what is happening inside their asso...

Re: Iran leader killed!!!!

California probably has a bigger economy than Russia BUT Russia has a few things that others don't like nukes and a big intelligence network that can manipulate what others accept as truth. We had a hold on Iran from getting nukes but that was shot to hell. Now they have a chance to be just like the...
