Re: Lil Kim be getting jiggy wit it!

Question then is, does Trump blame Bolton for this, and if so, will he throw him under the bus? Doing so would certainly piss off a certain wing of the republican party.

Re: Lil Kim be getting jiggy wit it!

...I think Trump screwed up in that he should have waited for Kim to cancel the meeting... That was my gut reaction at first, but that's just not how Trump operates. If he waits for Kim to cancel, then Kim is the one calling the shots and any attempt by Trump to bring Kim back to the table looks we...

Re: Lil Kim be getting jiggy wit it!

I'm not exactly a big fan. His mention of the Libya model when publicly discussing North Korea was done either knowing that North Korea would react negatively (in which case it was sabotage of the talks) or was total incompetence not knowing what effect it would have on the ongoing talks. Neither is...

Re: Reel-to-Reel Rewind

What is frustrating about this whole analog vs digital debate is that it is not the medium that makes analog sound better; rather, it is the loudness war that carries on to this day and the fact that analog mediums can't be pushed as hard as digital. If engineers would just back off of the processin...

Re: Hey screen glare

Get over yourself already. This particular "calling out" has absolutely nothing to do with your political opinions and everything to do with basic facts. The definition of the word "majority" is not up for debate, nor is Hillary's or Trump's popularity - those are objectively measurable things (the ...

You know - when I saw a thread titled "Deadly Mass School Shooting" written by screen glare, I knew that he/she would blame the NRA before I even clicked on the link.

Re: Hey screen glare

Time to add to this list of things for which Screen Glare does not have an answer:

-What is the difference between a majority and a plurality?
-What evidence do you have to support the idea that Trump is vastly less popular than Hillary Clinton?

Didn’t a bipartisan senate committee just come out in support of the U.S Intelligence assessment that they interfered to help Trump get elected?

SG - when you show me your evidence that "The vast majority voted for HRC" and that "The vast majority despise HIM" (HIM being Trump), then I'll respond to the remainder. Otherwise, you can't just come in here, spew factually false statements, ignore the counter-evidence as presented, and move forwa...

Re: You Trump haters aren't trying hard enough

...The vast majority voted for HRC. *FAKE NEWS ALERT* Factually incorrect. 48.2% of all Americans who voted voted for Hillary. Not only is that not a "vast" majority, it is not even a majority. That, by definition, is a plurality. The minority despised her... The vast majority despise HIM. Nice try...

Re: Lil Kim be getting jiggy wit it!

How can anyone say how much Kim has to gain or lose when nobody really knows what it is that he wants in the first place? If it is legitimacy or a "seat at the table" that Kim is after, then it is his recent actions that have put North Korea in a weaker bargaining position (not Trump's actions putti...

At this point Killer Kim looks to the world to be more sincere and reasonable.

Is this article what passes for journalism these days? That may be the most unsourced drivel I've ever read (which, I quit reading about halfway through because I just got bored reading it).

Re: NOAA weather radio increasingly becoming a laughing stock

WX radio isn't very mobile without lugging a box with you. That got me to thinking - I know most of today's smart phones have a built-in FM chip for 88-108MHZ. That means it would be technologically possible to also include a WX frequency chip. Such a chip DOES exist (and has been around since 2013...

I'm just TRYING to make the point that putting life-safety ANYTHING on cellular is, at best, risky. It is not designed for that, it's not provisioned for that, it's capacity and resilience does not allow for that, nor likely will it ever be.

I 'get' your thought that one should try and talk to the technology most people have in their hands. Makes perfect sense. But just don't fool yourself into thinking it's mission critical stuff. Therein lies my entire point. And don't fool yourself into thinking that your hypothetical "well built, p...
