Radio and Podcasts / Re: George Noory Sucks! - The Definitive Compendium
« on: November 13, 2017, 08:24:13 PM »
I took classes in the language of love!

If you took all that driven emotion about George, and applied it to men who drive Acuras, the vehemence we both feel would be a huge similarity.

But, just because I feel venomous toward men driving Acuras doesn't mean the manufacturers, sellers, or purchasers of Acuras do.  Likewise, just because listeners disapprove of George Noory, doesn't mean writers, publishers, sellers or purchasers of George's books do.

I hadn't realized how opposed to George you stand.  Are you an Art Bell fan? I never knew Art Bell, although not too long ago, I listened to some recordings and looked up his bumper music.  I didnt get very far though.

To me, George sucks, but like a frustrating pet, I have not entirely forsaken him.  And you *ARE* still here!  But you don't listen at all??  Don't you even love it when he steps in it or falls into his own messes?  You don't ROFL?  He is an inadvertent comedian.

Well, to avoid boring you "ad nauseum", I have tucked my new 15-paragraph suckage summary into an old, obscure suckage thread where appreciative avatars requested such posts.  Although, I had thought that suckage is what this here thread was for...

And gees lady, the good comes with the bad.  I might rant ad nauseum, but I try to inject humor, contribute to a variety of topics, and am usually able to support my claims,  instead of grandstanding and twisting things like that other verbose poster we all know here.  And I take the heat in back rooms from Swishy so he will leave contributors in peace out here!

I never said George isn't a good person.  His money is going somewhere and he burns his credit into the ground, and we can tell it's not for a new Mercedes every week, meaning that the dough is probably going toward good causes.  Everyone knows that giving in private is more honorable than giving publically, just to receive acknowledgement.  Although, in public, he participates in office and radio station charity fundraisers all the time.  He supported that International child, who is probably college-age now, and he helped that senior heart patient with her back mortgage as she was getting back on her feet, and after she had sort of been swindled, I gather.  Did Art publically support charities too?

I like listening to Nori for the same reason that Statler and Waldorf stayed in the balcony box watching the Muppet Show.

What's next from you--a deep analysis of the ongoing struggle between Ronald McDonald and The Hamburglar?

Don't know about The Hamburglar but Ronald McDonald served time for child rape and Mayor McCheese served time for embezzlement.  I'm amazed actually that McDonalds survived these scandals.

There are those who believe that the Ronald McDonald child rape cases go back to the beginnings of the McDonald's restaurant chain and that Kennedy was killed to distract public attention away from this.

Like all fine Newfies, I am most proud of that time the two seater plane went down in the Newfie graveyard, and we spent the whole night digging up bodies from it.

Trumpers, your blind devotion leads to ignorance.  Take the tax bill for instance. Under either the current House or Senate bill, some middle income taxpayers will have to pay more. So I suggest that you run your own personal numbers to see the result for you.  When administration officials are asked about it, they immediately pivot and suggest that this tax "reform" will have so many other benefits (e.g. file your taxes on a postcard - a lie) that if some middle income people have to pay more that that's OK.  They further pivot to the "argument" that a lower corporate tax will result in higher wages.  The only poll on the subect seems to suggest that large corporations will pay higher dividends or buy back shares - no one is on the record suggesting that they will increase wages. So unless you already file on 1040EZ, there's a good chance Republicans and going to fuck you over in favor of lower corporate taxes. But, Trumpers, I realize your blind devotion to Donny means you really don't care.  Oh, and BTW, let's hope that pervert Roy Moore ends up in one of sheriff Joe's prison camps in a tent full of gay guys who think he's real purty.

Do you have a collection of RUSH albums thumb-tacked to the walls of your home-office, and a Wayne Gretzky pewter next to your lava-lamp? 

I don't like RUSH.

Uh huh.  Thought so.

If you actually believe the lies you say to falsely attempt to defend Trump, you're even more pathetic.

Please tell us what I have lied about.

Your dishonest excuses on behalf of Donald Trump for one thing.  Your ignorant comments about Justin Trudeau for another.

It is inherently dishonest and flies in the face of all that is irrefutably true with respect to human biology.  Emotions and preferences are not facts.  If the society that I am a part of allows for the obscuring of essential facts simply to make it more comfortable for the <4% of the population to alter their plumbing or pee in the opposite gender’s bathroom it effects me in that it countenances a lie.

Why would you care about that?  You lie all the time.

Some days I want to hit people. I have absolutely no problem calling somebody by their preferred pronoun (he / she.)  But I draw a line and I cannot believe that my country is really going to be this stupid.

Gender-neutral birth certificates could be issued in Ontario as early as next year,

"If it doesn't happen until 2018, this is definitely a problem for me personally, because it would continue to cause me emotional grief over having a birth certificate and all my other forms of legal documentation that are currently discriminating against me, because I'm not a male or a female," Ferguson said.

Poor snowflake.  He must really be sad.  :'(

I can see a problem with record keeping if a lot of people start wanting gender neutral birth certificates.  But, I think the rest is a matter of perspective.

It could be as easily argued that you're the snowflake for having a problem with what some other person is doing when it has no effect on you.

Oops. I tuned in for an hour tonight.  What a massive waste of time.  First off, Art Bell was 100% correct.  There is no way to make radio LESS stimulating that doing individual readings.  It is great if your audience consists of three old cat ladies born April 10th 1943.

I only caught the last part of the "blockchain" man.  He seems to believe that a truck driver will not be replaced any time soon (idiot), but that blockchain will give drivers a way to find backhauls.  I have news for the jackass.  There already exists entire boards and companies doing exactly that.

Oh, and stucco suppliers will use block chain to market their goods.  ::)

I was really hoping for more.  There is lots of potential.  Cryptocurrencies are interesting, while other block chain have potential to do some actual good in the world (using computing power for something worthwhile.)  Block chain will be deployed by private companies more and more. But my local building supply depot will not be selling their stucco supplies and arranging delivery using block chain any time soon.

It was good to see that despite my having exceptionally low expectations, C2C can still fail to deliver.

I have a friend who has done some work in block chain, I don't pretend to fully understand it.  Interesting though that Lisa Garr mentioned the guest 'doesn't own block chain' or something like that, instead of the more logical statement of 'the guest doesn't own any bitcoin.'  In the first hour he spent much of his time pushing bitcoin which made it sound to me like he owns some, but in the second hour he mentioned a couple things that could drive the price of bitcoin down, which made him sound like an honest analyst.

I personally don't see how governments can accept crypto-currencies as legal money. The claim that 'fiat currency has failed wherever it has been used' is a rather dishonest argument, one that has been pushed by the gold bugs for a long time.  First, the world has only been off the gold standard for less than 50 years and in the vast majority of those nations it has not failed.  It's kind of like arguing 'crypto-currencies may fail everywhere in the future, so we shouldn't trust them.'

The problem with his historic argument against fiat currencies (he gave the example of France after the French Revolution) is that the only times historically nations went off the Gold Standard is when the Gold Standard was failing in their nation as a result of a 'flight' of gold as it was sent off to either a more secure nation, sent off to pay for a war, or was hoarded.  So, fiat currencies were introduced historically into already unstable national situations.

Contrary to what the gold bugs lie, the Gold Standard itself is far from stable.  First, as the guest hinted at on a couple occasions, the amount of gold needed to back a unit of currency can be altered at whim by a government, this is known as 'debasing the currency' (or 'debasement.')  Second, especially over the short term, the value of gold, and therefore, the value of currency can shift greatly from year to year depending on new gold finds.  Check out the website and check for yourself.

The guest was also incorrect that fiat currency can't be trusted because governments refuse to limit the amount of currency. What governments and independent central banks do that is the same equivalent is limit the amount of inflation (or increase in CPI) from year to year to a 1-3% range.

In regards to crypto-currencies, if their is no central authority to limit the increase in the total units of crypto-currencies from year to year, I don't see how that would not be inflationary.

Have you been paying attention to his Asian trip?  It has been a positive trip so far and he is garnering support against North Korea and building alliances on the economic front.  Damn shame if you are too arrogant to see that.  Sure he hasn't been successful on the domestic side yet but the Republican Congress is not blameless.  Yes, he should not be going on these Twitter campaigns against politicians but again the behavior of Congress has also been contemptible.

The reason the behavior of the Republican Congress has been contemptible is because they also don't have any policies.  Saying 'no' and ending things are not policies.

DT cult here, Uhura?  Let's see.  PB and I don't like Trump and point out his faults all of the time but we think his policies are for the most part good.  Gd5150 voted for Bernie Sanders.  I'll give you MD and starr.  What we have been saying all along is he's better than Hillary or Obama.  That is not a high bar to reach. LOL.  Hell, he's better than 90% of Republicans on the Hill.  Yeah, he's an arrogant dick but move on from your hatred.  You need to learn to Stop Worrying and Love The Donald.

Whatever you say about Dr Wallet, the second half guest on crop circles was hilarious. 

Not an exact quote, but it sums up her thinking:
"Those who think aliens are the cause of crop circles are just silly.  Crop circles are the living earth communicating with us."

Then Nori started referring to the earth as 'she' and 'her.'

« on: November 08, 2017, 05:52:17 PM »,_Medicaid_Expansion_Initiative_(2017)

After all the Governors wins in Virginia and New Jersey , and Virginia house seats wins by Dems a story that gone under the radar was Maine having a Ballot Measure in Maine to Expand Medicaid. It passed by 59%

Maine (crazy) Governor LePage who has vetoed this 5 times says he not going to implement it. Not sure how the laws say about a vote from the public. LePage is not running for re-election.

An interesting side story is that this certainly not going to help Susan Collins change her vote from no to yes when he state is backing a more liberal plan.

BTW is Maine the strangest political state out there, they have a cool independent like Angus King, a moderate Republican in Collins and a total right wing nutter like LePage all representing them at the same time

Republican Rob Astorino, the Westchester County Executive (upstate New York) and 2014 Republican nominee for governor lost nearly 60-40 for reelection.

In special elections, Republicans lost their supermajority in the Georgia State Senate, and Democrats look very much like they will take back the majority in the Washington State Senate. (A lot of mail in ballots are still outstanding.)

However, the Republicans can console themselves that most of these are 'blue'states and that they are now 5 for 5 in U.S House special elections for open Republican districts.
