Comment Re:Thanks Obama! (Score 1) 373

It's going to happen sooner or later. There are too many states for the current Federal system to function properly. If we combined them together into 13 or so new states, I think we'd find the Federal system would start to work a whole lot smoother.


The US has been working just fine so far, and is just fine currently, no need to change.

If it does, I hope it is LOOOOONG after I'm dead and gone. I've been 101% happy with it as it is so far.

Comment Re:Well Trump has one thing right (Score 0) 530

Yet that madman and a wildcard managed to overcome the challenge from sixteen politically smart guys and the Republican party machine to become the candidate and then go on to defeat the Democratic candidate, who was supremely qualified and politically adept ; she was fully supported by her party, the media and Hollywood and yet she was beaten by Trump.

You obviously have no idea what you are talking about. Remember Obama, and Clooney telling us that Trump would never, ever, be elected President and they are very smart and full of political nous.

Remember all the political pundits and pollsters telling us Trump had got no chance against the eminently qualified and capable Clinton?

Well here we are with this "madman and wild card" as president who is now setting up to rearrange the relationship with China to America's advantage. He is doing the same with NAFTA, TPP and TTIP. He intends to make sure America becomes energy self sufficient. All this to bring jobs and wealth to AMerica for the national benefit.

You, and all of your ilk, can witter on about Trump as much as you like but the hard fact is that he has never been a politician yet he has rolled over the political class in America and he is about to do the same to China. You, your friends and the Chinese are making a big mistake to underestimate Trump. You think you understand him and make glib pseudo-psychiatric analyses of him but you actually have no understanding of him at all.

Yep, the illiterate rurals have enough guns and ammunition to stop the million+ hoards of urban zombies. Nice fantasy

I have to imagine they actually ARE pretty well armed, moreso than folks from NYC that pretty much ban guns.

And if you talk more N vs S...I'd posit that we are WAY more heavily armed, so, don't zombie your way down here.

Well, if you aren't dealing with them...and it doesn't directly influence your life, why should you give a shit?

I mean, there are LOTS of problems and injustices in the world, but if they don't effect my life, I pretty much ignore them.

I have plenty of things that DO effect my life that I need to spend time dealing with and caring about.

I'm just glad that it appears people are starting to wake up and realize it. Part of it is the rise of the internet and alternative sources like Breitbart.

...And the fact that so much of the media's lies recently are being proven as such -- Michael Brown's "Hands Up Don't Shoot" was a complete lie, the Orlando shooter used an AR-15 was a complete lie (it was a SigSauer carbine, and NOT an AR-15)...

Now look at how the media is largely ignoring the fact that the Ft. Lauderdale airport shooter converted to Islam...

I think the tide is finally turning against these left wing propagandists...

Hey, if they are going to ever develop "fuck robots", they'd damned sure better be as convincingly real as possible....

Then again, if they ever do get to that level, that will pretty much solve overpopulation and perhaps put humanity itself into jeopardy.

I mean, if a guy can have a convingly female robot he can fuck, that never ages, whines, talks back, argues, or tries to divorce and take half his shit when he upgrades to a newer model....well, why would any guy ever deal with a real woman again..?

It could prove to be a scary future indeed!!

I still have my old Nakamichi cassette deck. If I recall, it needed to maybe have the heads adjusted a bit.

But, back then, you didn't BUY pre-recorded cassettes...those just sucked.

To get the best quality out of them back in the day, you recorded your vinyl album onto them....I used to get the Maxell high bias tapes...can't remember the exact model, but those sure sounded good for the day.

Now.....if they brought back Reel-To-Reel tape and tape decks again, I might be interested in that.

I never got one back in the day, but I sure wanted one...

Journal Journal: "Don't be rude. YOU ARE FAKE NEWS" 22

I honestly don't think I'll get tired of watching President Trump smack the MSM over the next 8 years.

And "fake news" has been a huge problem ever since the days of Dan Rather's "fake, but accurate" George W. Bush AWOL fake memo.

I see the same thing as Sling -- packaged cable channels that mean I have to pay for a lot of channels I don't want to watch just to get one that I do. It's tied into a Playstation, which I don't have.

I was just mentioning VUE because it addressed the same short comings in sling that I also found...

And no, you do not have to have a playstation unit to use Playstation VUE.

I'm currently running VUE on my Amazon Fire TV boxes....

Yes, I try to keep my computing in the office. I work there all day and when I want to relax, I usually want to be away from the keyboard for the most part.

My first actual viewing of kodi, was from it being on an amazon fire stick a friend brought over and plugged into my main living room tv.

I'd since loaded kodi on my amazon fire tv boxes, but I've not yet tried any plugins, that I was concerned about legality...well, mostly traceability of content that might not be 101% legal.

I've just never been able to figure exactly WHERE the content from those plugins is coming from....
