Re: Where's Our Stimulus Checks?

.... This thread has nothing to do with Unions. Nobody even raised the subject. But when I expressed the belief that Big Al may have been around here before under a different name, instead of trying to refute my idea, you launch into an anti-Union rant .... Go back and re-read what I posted. I thin...

Re: Where's Our Stimulus Checks?

In case you didn't know that Big Al is a lowlife, here is your proof. I believe he's been around here before under a different name. Some union workers are lazy shiftless no good, don't want to do nothing keener hoser douchebags. There I said. Did I call EVERY union worker a lazy shiftless no good,...

Re: Bravo, Alabama Amazon workers!

In my opinion, unions have been shooting themselves in the foot by fighting tooth and nail to get the f-ups their job back. Some clown keeps messing up on the job time and time again. Comes in drunk for the sixth time. Is late or calls off at least one every couple of weeks. 95 percent of union work...

I have a good friend that live in a "mobile home community" near me. His wife gets livid when I call it a trailer park.

I like Josh also. Once Lue returns, it would be nice to see him stay, and let Lee Thomas do some street reporting.

Re: Ken Jennings as Jeopardy! Host

Seeing as they have chosen to have so many people guest host until September, I would of like them to give a try out to the three that Alex himself suggested would be good choices to replace him: CNN’s Laura Coates, LA Kings announcer Alex Faust and TCM’s Ben Mankiewicz. Maybe he seen something in t...

Over here on this side of the pond, showing ID to deposit depends on the bank. Chase makes me show it. TCF does not. My credit union does not.

Newsy should be renamed Lousy. What a terrible news source.
I must be the only one on here that finds Newsy interesting. I'll often have it on while I'm putzing around doing stuff. Seems more interesting than the news on Scripps local OTA station. To me anyway.

Re: Canadian Priest Stands Up To Turkeytop's Exalted Bully Boys

This pastor in Calgary needs to find out which of his parishioners called the 5-0. I'm thinking the Gendarmerie got a call from someone in the service. Since they were called, they had to make an appearance. And then do an "exit stage left" as soon as they were asked, without giving any grief to any...

Re: Using 75 ohm CCTV coax for ham radio

If it is cut to an even number of wavelength(s) the match will be not be affected at one frequency. Zin = Zout If it is odd 1/4 wavelength then it will act as a transformer and cause impedance to be increased to 115 ohms at the radio. In summary on single frequency use, when the cable length is cut...

Re: Using 75 ohm CCTV coax for ham radio

I wonder if you could make modifications to the antenna to give it a 75Ω characteristic impedance. I do know that short lengths of coax are sometimes used to adapt one characteristic impedance to another. What we are wondering is, using 75 ohm CATV cable, if the length of the antenna can be so that...

Re: Vaccine passports

Would it be mandatory to carry the passport and present it to authorities on demand? Me thinks, based on what I've read so far, authorities asking someone to show it probably won't happen. However, I do ponder if it could become a condition of employment. That can happen absence of any legislation ...
