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

Wall Street could care less about Trump or his BS. He's single-handedly tanking Obama's economic turnaround with his ill-conceived trade war and promoting the underemployment crisis as a boom. The truth is that when 2-year notes yield better than 10-year, trouble is coming. Sorry facts are getting ...

Re: Picture Collage Of 2019 Mass Shooters-Surprise! Surprise!

TC Talks has a guilt complex because he REALLY has White Privelege. The rest of us grew up in more modest means, and have no reason to feel guilty. Maybe TC Talks is descended from the worst, most brutal slave owners, so that white guilt is understandable. The rest of us grew up more modestly, and ...

Couldn't have happened to a better piece of crap. I hope he's burning in hell right now.
There is no hell... the concept was created by Germanic Christians. The center of the Earth is a metallic core. Is Brooks there?

Re: Internet over the Airwaves?

You know that is the Russians, correct? R-T has been running that. https://www.facebook.com/watch/?v=330272074488725 It's not just the Russians. John C.

Re: Retro Technology

So how do you conclude that I'm on one of two sides in your politics . I don't have any skin in the game. Looking at it from the outside, I see very little difference between your Democrats and your Republicans. They both share the same pro-capitalist, anti-working class ideology. The only real dif...

Re: Retro Technology

Besides... the UAW people are going to prison. Just like Trump campaign workers and former Trump, White House officials. Does that mean the entire GOP is rotten? That's not a game your side should want to play. I believe the ratio in Michigan right now for incarcerated politicians is 7:1 Democrat t...

Re: Internet over the Airwaves?

I had service via microwave (looked like an STL) for about a year. It was faster than ISDN but not hugely reliable. 5G will be here soon. We got a flyer from a local company that provides microwave internet. The speeds are comparable to our current DSL provider, which is also a local mom-and-pop co...

Re: Retro Technology

I have a number of Luddite friends who insist on their CD's

My best advice as a long time "audiophile", car stereo freak and music fan is to put her files on her phone and bluetooth that stuff.

I put a $150 bluetooth / tuner into my daughter's Honda and was shocked at how well it functioned.

Re: Continuous reporting of off topic banter, no results

Trevor's Axiom has it that you'll eventually irritate one or more of the other users MORE that the party of which you complain. You will become a victim of disdain that will be redirected from LL101 to you. Remember the words of Weev, "the internet is serious business".
