Re: Ring Doorbells In Cohoots With 400 Police Agencies

The PD in one of the cities I own a place sent out a notice asking for information about the number and placement of some Blink cameras I purchased to watch over the property. (Both camera systems are owned by Amazon)

I respectfully declined.

Re: LED Lighting

It's been a revolution in lighting. Only a few years ago, LED lighting was viewed by many as a conspiracy by tree hugging liberals. The only conspiracy that got me to change was having remodeling contractors leave EVERY DAMN LIGHT ON ALL THE TIME for months at a time while I was out-of-town during ...

Re: LED Lighting

The bluish light is actually WORSE for the eyes. The BLUE light from bluish LEDs and CFLs is much greater than for incandescent lights. It has to do with the spectrum of light. Incandescent light has a color temperature of 2700-2800 Kelvin. The higher the color temperature, the bluer the light. The...

Re: WOOD TV 70 Year Special

So where was Suzan Geha? Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk No kidding. Looked at their website with all the self-stroking celebration stories and not one word about her. Persona non grata. Banished. Love her or hate her and regardless under what terms she departed, the woman brought a whole bunc...

Re: Make no mistake about it - the media is rooting for a recession

Sorry, but a recession *is* coming. Might take another 12 to 18 months to officially arrive, but one is around the corner. We are due. We typically see a recession within a decade's time from the prior one. In fact, it is rare to go a complete decade without a recession. A lot of small cap & mid ca...

The title is correct. https://pagesix.com/2019/08/09/brooke-mueller-attended-eyes-wide-shut-type-sex-parties-in-the-hamptons/?_ga=2.21809659.1348235406.1565348809-664670421.1480009997 Disingenuous at best, certainly sophomoric. Page Six? That's not even making an attempt to find something clever.

Fine line. Can't be too peppy on tragedy.

Re: Trump’s Dead Give Away

Trump’s speech from the White House Monday morning after the weekend double shooting massacres - was devoid of emotion, passion, and feeling. That’s a dead giveaway that he was reading a script written by someone else - filled with sentences he did not really mean. To find out how he truly feels ab...

Re: Can A Statement Be Racist If It's True?

Trump attacked Cummings in response to Cummings criticism of the administration's handling of southern border issues. Had nothing to do with race. That said - I do firmly believe Donald Trump is a low life piece of shit. That may very well be true, but he still was a better candidate and has been a...

Re: Can A Statement Be Racist If It's True?

At what point are you going to realize I really don't have any interest in engaging in your or anyone else's rationalization of racist behavior? I don't know - we're now on the 4th page of this thread and you continue to respond. Mostly because I believe speaking out against a racist President is w...

No, one side was not made up entirely of white supremacists. If one actually takes the time to read the entire conference in context, an honest person, without a agenda, could not claim that to be racist.
But only one tribe had a member who murdered someone...

Re: Can A Statement Be Racist If It's True?

Anyone attacking people of color that hold office to lessen their political impact is racist. No "N'" word required. Again, there are TWO HALVES to the definition of racism, both halves of which must be met in order to meet the definition. You continue to fail to address the latter half. Nope. I fe...

Re: Can A Statement Be Racist If It's True?

If Trump proposes repealing the 13th Amendment (bringing back slavery), legalizing segregation, or if he starts calling black people n*ggers, then I'll be the first to come back here and call him a racist. Until then, I've seen nothing that rises above the level of bigotry - and even most of that a...
