Re: Is Verizon F-ing Me?

Traveling international can get odd with your cellphone. I went to Tokyo about a year ago and was all set to rent a WiFi hotspot to get me through the trip (I was advised to just pick one up at the airport) when I found out that as a Sprint subscriber I didn't need to do anything for internet servic...

Re: US behind Chna in global leadership

We've lost a sizable economic advantage now that the idiot is in power... We are now equal with Russia. "To complement its rise as a great economic power, the Chinese government has sought in recent years to expand its global influence in other spheres," the report said. Gallup cited China's "massi...

Re: Drummer Hal Blaine dies

Check out "The Wrecking Crew" movie on DVD. It was hours of footage and interviews, both in the film and as extras. Hal's interviewed in there, as well as many others in the Crew. It was fascinating, and I learned a lot about their work. I'm hoping to get the Muscle Shoals documentary next. The Mus...

Re: A CBS News anchor shake-up could be in the works

This will be fun to watch. Susan Z is something of a legend at CBS News. As their go-to producer, at one time or another she's handled just about everything in the building over the years, made a ton of money for the company producing the "48 Hours"-type programming and was the inspiration for the H...

Re: Drummer Hal Blaine dies

Yup. Blaine had his fingerprints on just about any recording that came out in the 60's & 70's. An astounding body of work. The stat that knocked me out was being drummer of record on 6 consecutive Grammy "Record of the Year". IIRC, after missing one year he followed up with two more consecutive wins...

Thought y'all might enjoy this piece on Howard's rather tenuous relationship with his alma mater Northern Michigan University.

Re: Trump’s Mental Illness Hiding in Plain Sight

It just means he suffers from Trump Derangement Syndrome... I've said it before. I have a gut feeling Screen Glare is a woman. She has posted disgruntled missives in the past about young and perky gals getting the premium shifts in front of the camera, over more mature women. What guy would do that...

Re: Will Cohen Survive This Week?

With respect to Cohen having corroborating evidence, I enjoyed seeing images of he and his team of attorney's showing up at the Congressional hearing wheeling in suitcases full of what are presumably supporting documents. https://assets.thaivisa.com/forum/uploads/monthly_2019_03/2019-03-06T223720Z_1...

Re: I hope you all can find new jobs soon

If fast food didn't accept tips to begin with, they would get at least minimum wage. What's the big deal? It's not the workers that put the tip jar out at the Dunkin Donuts or the Boston Market. it's the store. From what one gal told me at one of the Leo's, they can't keep people when they realize ...

I know this is a serious topic, but LL101 had to start by insulting the entire site.
That sort of took away from the subject...
I don't disagree.

Re: I hope you all can find new jobs soon

As much as I'm not particularly onboard with l101's methodology, this is a legit subject for a thread. It's definitely not acceptable* for a employer to overnight slash wages and replace the structure with some scheme that results in a significant reduction in pay to employees. Defenders might cite ...

AWayWorseThanOCD is a bloviating, brainwashed, Communist nut. She can't run for President until 2028. She's just a distraction now. Keep your eyes on Bernie and Joltin' Joe. I don't think there was any implication that AOC was running for President anytime soon, but I understand the entire Trump sh...

Re: Will Cohen Survive This Week?

Trump could be in trouble with SDNY. For Repubs who don't want to believe me, they should read up on Judge Napolitano's remarks on Neil Cavuto's program this afternoon. An earlier remark is on point - the true test will be the extent to which Cohen's accusations can be corroborated. I wholly believ...
