A list of things that dont actually exist but are alive and well thanks to cons...

I will start, please add on:

1. Voter ID being legal

2. Cancel Culture (why is accountability called something else?)

3. Violence by BLM

4. Antifa (was gonna say violence by Antifa, but there is no such organization in the first place)

No Rodney, I dont think we can, sadly...


I was visiting my son last couple of days for the first time in almost 2 years because of Covid, I was dying inside not having seen him. I had a heart scare and wasnt sure if I would see him again before I died, as I feared another heart attack (doing better now, got a stent, my 3rd, I should be good now as long as I do my exercise and watch my diet, yes I can still eat pizza, just not all the time .)

We both love Quentin Tarantino movies, especially "Once Upon A Time In Hollywood" and "Django Unchained", among others.

We watched them together last night and during Django we repeatedly looked at each other and said we were back to those days, with trumpers Maga, GOP, etc.

They want slavery again, sure as I am sitting here typing on an LG laptop.

They want "Mandingo" fighting again. In fact that disgusting practice helps explain why so many ignorant white folks are overly afraid of Black men, these days. Why cops shoot first, if it is a Black man, all too often.

Yes, I know Tarantino is controversial. Using the "N" word the way he does in his scripts and his obvious misogyny. But I admit I like the movies.

It is a LIE that logging would help prevent forest fires or spreading of fires.


Myth #1: Regularly logging forests prevents forest fires

A common assumption is that logging, or removing some trees, would prevent fires. In fact, many forest experts say that logging is ineffective. This is because the tree remnants left over after logging, such as stumps and branches, provide a super-fuel for fire – one that is even drier (and more flammable) in the absence of a forest canopy.

My closest friend is former hotshot Captain, firefighter, USFS.

I was telling him how I believed that logging might reduce fires, he assured me no, not at all.

Power companies use this as an excuse.

Up until now, for the most part, GOP stole elections by voter obstruction, gerrymandering.

Flipping votes didnt happen (Yes, I said it did and I was wrong) and fixing voting machines probably also didnt happen.

None of this matters, however, in red states now, because if the GOP loses the election they will simply say there was fraud and they will begin the end of Democracy in America and someone please tell me WHAT in the FUCK can we do to stop it?

Cuz I cant thing of a god damn thing.

Well, if I had a time machine we could all go back 5 years and people on the left could NOT trash Hillary all day everyday, THAT would have avoided most of this. But I dont have it this week, my ex-wife has it and she is not speaking to me right now because I took the grilled cheese machine she wanted when we split up.

Imagine how many people either did not vote at all or voted but not for Prez or voted 3rd party because every time they correctly heard someone describe trump as a complete idiot and prick, someone chimed in with anyone of the following:

"Well Hillary isnt much better"

"Hillary is a terrible candidate but I will HOLD MY NOSE and vote for her."

You retired cats, how many annual miles are you now driving with the opening up

of everything but assume you are still driving less than before Covid and what are you telling your car insurance company because the lower miles annually driven means lower premiums, by the way.

(cats as in folk, I am an old musician and I like to talk that way when I can)

I love Randi Rhodes intelligence and research, but...

I love Randi Rhodes intelligence and the homework she does, but her condescension with her audience is almost too much to take anymore.

When she explains something she always says “you” and she never says “us“, what this means is she knows the information and we don’t and she is superior to us and is educating us.

She can barely tolerate talking to someone who calls into the show unless they have a perfect cadence and question or comment.

I have earned the right to make these criticisms because I have listened to her for years and have been very involved in her message boards and I have financially supported her show also.

If you listen to her and you do not hear what I am hearing then check yourself, because it is painfully obvious.

Having said all that, her intelligence and research are more important and valuable than her faults. Oh, and I also wish she would admit her criticism of Hillary in 2016 didn’t help matters.

I also wish John Fugelsang would admit he didn’t help matters either

I was wrong, votes weren't flipped or prevented from being counted in 2016.

I said for 4 years that I simply did not believe traitor got more votes in those 4 states than Hillary, but I was wrong. If I am to believe this last election was valid and there was no election or voter fraud, then I have to believe it consistently.

Now, those who said crap like "I will vote for her but hold my nose" and other shit like that, can you admit you were wrong?

Relentlessly TRASHING her, repeating bullshit about her, convinced how many NOT to vote? Just because someone votes for her but then trashes her, causes so much damage.

So sad.

Any Lexus NX or UX owners here?

Both come in hybrid, we want the UX for mileage reasons but to get the features we want we will have to special order and it takes 3 months. There are several NX we could choose from and get one now.

On Consumer Report the UX gets high marks all the way around other than they drive unimpressively but SUV's are like that.

The NX has a very low "owner satisfaction" rating, 2 out of 5.

Why? Anybody have one?

Are any of you Californians waiting MONTHS to get unemployment benefits?

A relative received an ID verification request around January 10 after receiving benefits for several months, my relative completed the request and is qualified for benefits and still has not received any since December.

Is owed around $6000 at this point.

I read articles that this is happening to many others, but it seems SO LONG that I wondered if this person did something wrong.

Anyone else experiencing this?

Goes online to UI whatever and certifies every two weeks, but no money.

iPhone ideas, and does anyone know if this is available now or not?

1. when your phone auto-locks after 30 seconds or five minutes depending on which setting you have it on...if you are like me you have it on 30 seconds so in case it is lost or stolen they cant get into it, but 98% of the time you are at home, especially now, and this is not an issue...so how awesome would it be to have a setting that allows you to change it to 5 minutes for instance but then it automatically goes BACK to the 30 second setting 30 minutes later or an hour later...

2. to make the red 1 go away from a TEXT message you have to open the text message, most of the time I dont need to open it to see what I want to see but I always want that red 1 to go away...I dont suppose there is a way to do that? To be clear, anytime you get a text you can see it in preview or whatever but to make the notification go away you have to click on it and go into messages to see it then go back out...
