Re: Fix the damn roads

Who can come up with the best parody lyrics for "Bring The Boys Home" by Freda Payne. A recording would be nice, by parody lyricist "Lady Gaga Gretchen". Well, off to the karaoke machines to record "Fix The Durn Roads".

Re: “Little Adam Schitt”, tweets Trump

Sounds like something out of Borscht Belt humor, Allan Sherman, Tom Lehrer, or even something Jared said late at night. Sarah Silverman, Amy Schumer, and Chelsea Handler make a ton of money with this kind of scatological humor. Are they mentally ill? Oh, don't answer that. Amy's a trainwreck.

Re: 2018 Election Results Thread

I just learned that Wayne County reported its results for those races absurdly late. We all know why. Those precincts are certainly no bigger than other areas, and shouldn't take any longer to count. In 2016 there was at least one precinct in Detroit where Hillary got more votes than there were tot...

Re: Switching to/from another station's signal for network shows

I think that WWTV had Microwave links directly from WKZO-TV. Both were owned by John Fetzer. I never saw off air links for WKZO-TV. This probably had to do with the prevalence of Sporadic E in the 60-66 MHz causing very bad and varying cochannel interference. Also, they could result in the same offs...

Well, he could have been channeling Fred Flintstone, or he could have been channeling Bill Clinton or JFK or Mel Reynolds. Probably not Barney Frank though.

Perhaps you have forgotten the leading Dem 2020 candidate's statement.

Re: The Enemy of The American People

Well, as the people in New York City and Hollywood always say, they don't know a single person that voted for Trump, Bush, Reagan, or other Republicans. You people are living in a social (and Socialist) bubble. It's difficult back up when they always throw all "college graduates" together with the u...

Re: The Enemy of The American People

I sense the same anger against the Deep State, the so called "intelligence" agencies, the Left Wing Media bias, attempts to illegally rig the election, etc., that I did before the 2016 Election. I am worried that they will prevail. But remember that R voters do not answer survey callers or put signs...

Re: Obama's War On The Suburbs

The problem with roommates is that even if you think you know them, you don't know them. I talk to college age kids every week, and about 90% of them have very negative experiences with roommates. If they are in college, they (90% anyway) can't wait to get out of dormitories. They want apartments an...
