Let's see, 44 years ago when I first moved into my home the pines had all been cut down. Over the years my reception got worse and worse as the pines grew. Pines trees, and the 70 foot high oaks mixed in, do absorb TV signals. As for the mountain ranges I bet there are TV repeaters on top of those ridges.
I am 90 miles north of the Orlando transmitters and 50 miles south of the Jacksonville ones. Trust me, an antenna won't work. And yes I want to watch what I want, my sports and The Walking Dead. And before you say it I am not using a 44 year old antenna, Ten years ago I got a new extreme range one, didn't help.
It's not greed, just survival. For some unknown reason antibiotics have a synergistic growth effect on animals that are not sick so antibiotics are feed to healthy animals. In the real world most businesses are barely profitable so any action that can increase profits is used to avoid bankruptcy.
With population pressures and increasing antibiotic resistant bacteria our whole food producing system may have to be overhauled. This aside from the massive carbon dioxide emissions from modern agriculture that must be addressed.
In many ways Capitalism is destroying the Earth and with all of us dependent on a healthy world more socialism will be needed. As a Conservative Republican this pains me but our very survival depends on this. Instituting this without concentration camps and killing fields will be difficult.
Does Bill know that the S in NASCAR stands for STOCK? For safety and completive reasons they no longer actualy use production street cars. They also race vehicles that resemble pickup trucks. It is a speed show with specific rules. You want American high tech racing watch Indy cars.
I wonder if Bill has any advise on how Pro Golf can improve their game? I'm sure science can devolve a ball that travels farther and the clubs they have to use are ridiculous.
As a conservative I hate the premise of Obamacare. Unfortunately it was necessary. If group plans had never been allowed this would not have happened. With me on disability insurance for my wife is subsidized and I pay $2.20 a month. No way could we afford the whole $660 monthly premium.
She is finishing her training to be a nurse so next year she will be paying a full premium when she gets a job. Personally I think medical care should be considered a utility and either be publicly owned or if private highly regulated.
