Re: Superdelegate Drama

I think Sanders would be no weaker a candidate than Biden in a general contest. Right now, many of the public has a distrust of the Democratic Party Elite. I ponder the pros and cons of the Democratic "Good ol' Boys" publicly showing disapproval of Sanders. Bernie starts getting up on the stump say...

Re: Looks Like Toll Roads Are Being Tossed Around Again

How do you feel about weight limits? I think they need to be part of the discussion. Michigan's 164,000-pound gross weight limit is more than double the federal standard of 80,000 pounds. I know more axles are required here but why even have double weight over other states? While I do agree that ti...

Yeah, I seen this thread after it was started, with zero replies.
I left it alone. And quite frankly I was expecting everyone else to also.

Re: State of the State Address 2020: Anyone Watching?

Regarding fixing the roads. A tax hike would pass IF it only went to the roads. The voters rejected Proposal 1 in 2015 because just over half of the tax revenue raised by Proposal 1 would of actually gone toward road funding. 40% would of went toward schools, the rest to revenue sharing with local g...

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

China is a bassackward country. I friend went there to adopt a girl, she said "it's a dirty, nasty country". Have you traveled, or know friends or family, that have traveled in Europe? I am hearing more and more say that Europe is getting the same way. Filthy. Dirty. Not pleasant to be in. I've nev...

Re: Ink Jet Printer

Went out today and bought the cheapest HP in the store. $44.00. Paid an extra 5 bucks for a two year warranty that covers everything. And just keep buying them. As far as I'm concerned, it's cheaper to buy a new printer, than go out and get more cartridges for the one I got. Use it up, toss the who...

It's a broadcast station - you work a lot of holidays, comes with the turf. If you're low man on the seniority pole, you work the holiday. No matter what you're religion is.

Re: Clinton says Gabbard is Russian plant...

I still stand by the argument I made in another thread. Out of all the current Democratic candidates, Gabbard was the one with the best chance of beating Trump. But she's done. If you remember, she was starting to become a bit of a media darling until she dissed Clinton on The View. Since then, you ...

So the return of Emery King to local news has a zero percent chance at happening with this?
Hopefully it is zero percent.

Re: Gun rights rally, no violence

I need an explanation why so many of the folks who were passionate about gun rights showed up in "costume".
I'm not critiquing what they stand for.
But was the paratrooper, dressed to the hilt show really necessary?
Kind of takes the "take me seriously" off the table, if you ask me anyway.

No doubt. My brother lives in Fort Worth.
He says it get hot enough that if you forget and touch something outside that's metal, you get burnt.
That's too toasty for me.
