Re: Is Homer Simpson Middle Class?

In Canada, working class income is from $40,100 to $120,400. He'd have to cook a lot of fries to even hit tho bottom end of that range. What does that come out to in USD? Even if it's $20K to $60K, most of that is still middle class (all but the lowest part of that range) Canadian statistics show s...

Re: Stock Up

Wonder if Biden will outdo the last guy who was the "best thing for gun sales since gun sales became a thing"? And yet here we are and everyone has their guns still. Everyone in the gun business scared people to death and got them to make a purchase and here we go again. Lots of money, unreasonable...

Re: Norway Warns About The Frail Taking COVID Vaccine And Dying From It

Since TT's only line of defense is to attack the source, here is a Bloomberg piece on this subject: https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2021-01-15/norway-warns-of-vaccination-risks-for-sick-patients-over-80?srnd=premium Norway said Covid-19 vaccines may be too risky for the very old and termina...

Re: Do station employees watch their own station?

If what you are asking if someone at the stations job is to watch the on air signal, I've wondered the same in the past. Some of the things you mentioned stand out from time to time. I'm certainly not expecting real-time feedback unless there's something egregious, and I would think the director (?...

Re: Anti Trump Jimmy Fallon Failing

Bring back John Stewart. And his field correspondents. This may be the only time I ever agree with SG in here, but I do miss John Stewart. I know most conservatives hated him, but I thought he was very good at what he did. I especially liked some of his "debates" with Bill O'Reilly. Jon Stewart wou...

Archie Bunker is middle class too.

You still haven't provided a solid definition of what you think "working class" is.

Re: TitanTV Listings

3.1 still shows up as LIGHT TV on the guide functions on my set (which just uses the PSIP tables in the transport stream), but the content definitely has changed over to the new format.

Do station employees watch their own station?

If they do, do they provide "first hand" feedback when they see things amiss?? Something like errors in the crawls, bad lighting, bad audio, etc... do they just expect that only the folks working those issues know about it and can't do anything about it? Is there normally a mechanism for them to rep...

Re: Is Homer Simpson Middle Class?

He is absolutely middle class. Suburban home, two car garage, expendable income, aspirations (remember "Snow King"??).

Re: Sex for money now ok in Washtenaw County?

As for the current prosecutor's decision to not prosecute cases, I have mixed views. For starters, is he violating his oath of office by making such a decision? Do we really want one individual subjectively choosing which laws to enforce and which laws not to enforce? EXCELLENT questions!! I think ...

Re: Anti Trump Jimmy Fallon Failing

What was fun on O'Brien and Ferguson was that they'd have different stuff all the time. Quirky and weird, but entertaining. Seems like the rest recycle the skits and just have different guests. Their monologues have been the same unfunny crap for the last 4 years.

Re: TC Talks - what do you have against white people?

Frankly, it's hard to take your opinion on racism seriously knowing you live in just about the least diverse area in Michigan. Tell you what, come on down during the week sometime. I'll take you shopping in the evening at the Save A Lot on Warren and Grand River. We'll have dinner at The Midwest Gr...

KM1125, Would you be willing to take anti bias, anti racism training? I have had to take it. And it's about as worthless as the sexual harassment training we've had to do too. I am sure there are some folks it might be applicable to, just like the annual network security training which encourages f...
