    Let’s see if the anemic pinheads in the Senate can get over their brain-cancer, progressive leftist, Trump-hating selves and pass a tax cut/reform with meaningful ROI. That would be a new beginning for sure.

    P.S. Has anyone else noticed what a shrill harlot John McCain is these days?

    • TheChairman says:

      Those of us in AZ have noticed it for 30 years… yet he keeps getting reelected, probably due to the large contingent of military veterans and retirees here. An appropriate twist of his name: McCAIN is not ‘able’.

      • CC1s121LrBGT says:

        It is a shame that the Republicans nominated him for their Presidential candidate in 2008. The world would have been a better place if they had nominate a stronger candidate that didn’t brag that he was last in his class.

        The mainstream media for decades has cheered on the Republican candidates that they thought would have the worst chance in the general election. Often it works to get a RINO candidate that doesn’t inspire party members to go to the polls. After the nomination, the press pivots and replaces the favorable coverage with unfavorable coverage. It worked with Dole, McCain and Romney. They thought it would be a cakewalk by giving all the coverage of Trump’s comments against his Republican rivals… but turns it it backfired on them. They never knew that Putin would fund $100k of Facebook ads to defeat Hillary’s $1.2B campaign. LMFAO

        • Fred Stiening says:

          The Facebook angle is fading fast. At least for the ads I saw, they were not pro Trump ads – they were supportive ads for Socialist Bernie Sanders, which would have been logical. Meddling in US elections to elect Socialists would not be a problem. Radio Havana and the Communust newspapers from Cuba (printed largely in Red ink) were mailed to and eagerly read by college newspaper staff.

          • CC1s121LrBGT says:

            Radio Havana in the 1960s would use high powered directional antennas to beam English language programming to the US. The programming was easily heard in the southern states and focused on the US civil rights struggle and poverty.

            I had also heard their shortwave transmissions where they relayed English language broadcasts of “The Voice of Vietnam” from Hanoi during the US involvement in the Vietnam War.

            Bottom line, they, like all adversaries, benefit by increasing strife and discord here. I’m not saying never listen, I am saying to it is best to understand their motives and the motives of anyone telling you a story.

            • Fred Stiening says:

              My father found them particularly obnoxious as one of the frequencies they sometimes used drowned out KDKA-AM at night.

  2. CC1s121LrBGT says:

    Listening to Chris Plante this NYC/NJ/VA election day and laughing every time he does it. It never gets old. He keeps mentioning Donna Brazile’s new book “Hacked” and every time he does, he breaks into his impersonation of Hillary Clinton’s hacking cough.

  3. Fred Stiening says:

    Sweet Spirits of Nitre was banned by the FDA just because they could.

  4. CC1s121LrBGT says:

    Current Drudge headline (right column): “Parrot’s screams for help prompt emergency police visit…” I clicked on it thinking it might have something do with tonight’s VA election results. LOL The newspaper’s headline is “Parrot’s screams for help prompt visit from sheriff’s office ” Interesting story. Here’s the link:

    • Parrott says:

      HA HA thats a good one!
      Chris plante was hilarious today and yesterday ! Yeah, I am going to move from Virginia, to either West Virginia, North Carolina or Mississippi

      • CC1s121LrBGT says:

        Consider Tennessee – it is just down I-81 and not state income taxes. You might even be close enough to Virginia to buy the cheap gasoline. You can’t get much closer to Bristol, VA than Bristol, TN. 😉

  5. Fred Stiening says:

    Should news sources publish stolen financial data?

  6. Parrott says:

    Hey Countess: Did you see the nice story on CBS Sunday morning about the restaurant in Philadelphia that gives it profits to a church mission that feeds homeless people ? It was Rooster soup co. Me and Mrs Parrott must be in tune with all things Philadelphia since we had such a great time visiting there.

  7. Parrott says:

    Saturday night after looking at homes in Winston Salem, we watch ‘War for Planet of the Apes’
    Spoiler alert . Caesar, the talking ape, is Moses. There, you know the story.
    He sets his people(apes) free. They were captured by Woody the bartender from Cheers,
    Cesar was not allowed to enter the promised land. Nova( the girl ) is introduced.
    a lot of pain in that movie. I think I will down load Hawks friday show and listen to him

  8. Parrott says:

    Hey, guess what?Fairfax county (NOVA) allow Govt. huntsman use the ‘Evil’ AR-15 platform as the type of rifle used to hunt and clear out deer in their parks.
    Interesting, ‘the man’ is allowed to use .223. I don’t think there are any states that allow that small of a caliber for deer hunting. Punks.
    But rest assured they are ‘trained’ and members of the sniper swat team. Ummm hmmmm. I feel safer already.
    The ‘official’ went on to saw, Vince interview WMAL this morning, they use the Hornaday critical defense 55 grain fragment bullet.
    IF you have that bullet in your rifle, while you are in the woods in the state of Virginia and West Virginia during Deer rifle season , they will throw your ass in jail in a ‘New York minute!
    I would never use anything lower than a .308. but I don’t hunt the ‘Kings’ animals. The lightest .308 bullet I have seen is 129 grain, that is light and fast. Normal is 150 grain. Its pretty heavy. That bullet will stop a deer, and just about any Isis radical.
    If you are allowed by the King to hunt on his land and you are above the law, you can use what ever you want, obviously.

    • Fred Stiening says:

      Are they donating the deer to homeless shelters or just burying them in mass graves at the landfill?

      • Parrott says:

        hi Fred, you know, Vince didn’t ask that. That’s a good question.
        I hope they are at least doing that. The problem will be spending the money for the processing of deer carcass. Its a lot of work.
        I would be surprised they did, now that you mention it.
        probably landfill.
        I tried to call Chrisplante to ask him and stir that up. His line is busy.
        I remember my old man, my Grand dad and my uncle all working on Deer carcasses, every year, when I was a kid. I wonder if that is why I don’t hunt? I know what has to be done, but I have no interest. I doubt my neighbors would want me hanging a deer carcass from my oak tree. Its work.
        Speaking of Deer. Its black powder season right now here in Virginia. Me and mrs parrott were at the storage facility for the ‘AS’ ( airstream) Sunday. She looked up and spied a bullet hole in the outer wall sheet metal of the storage unit . Looked like .50 caliber, or .45 acp. It was pretty big. We looked all around for the bullet, its in there somewhere. I bet its laying on the roof of the AS. I looked on the roof but couldn’t see the everywhere, I need to spend more time looking. Its probably a .50 black powder rifle bullet laying in there somewhere. It didn’t go out the other side. I didn’t see any holes in the AS ‘skin’ or dimples.

        • Fred Stiening says:

          It used to be a big thing in deer season in Michigan in the 1980s that the state PBS network would visit the DNR checkin centers where hunters brought their deer in for inspection and the catch was hung from the deer pole while the guys bragged about how many points their buck had. The DNR paid farmers to grow corn and then not harvest it, creating a social welfare state for the deer population to make them weak and dependent in handouts.

          We have a family of deer that regularly wander through our parking lot here at dusk, completely unafraid of humans. It is against the law to discharge a firearm in the city limits. I think bow hunting may be allowed, but I doubt it is done much.

      • Linda S. says:

        The people that hunt for deer here where I live, eat the deer they kill. My neighbor gave us some deer sausage last year. It was not bad.

  9. Fred Stiening says:

    In 2015, WTVI (the local PBS TV station) sponsored the creation of the Charlotte Broadcasters Hall of Fame, whose inaugural class included Billy Graham and Charles Kurault. It appears that the first annual event may have been the final one.

  10. Parrott says:

    Charles Kuralt wasn’t that old when he died . Bummer. I remember him interviewing someone down in Rose Hill, NC about that Frying Pan they have, and the guy in Minnesota that was building a new road with his International Farmall.
    I don’t understand Minnesota, how they could ever elect Al Franken? But Virginia elects dorks also, ‘Timothy Kaine’ .


  11. Parrott says:

    Well I have been looking at radios on ‘e-pay’ again. I was doing an inventory and I couldn’t find a clock radio. Oh well. I remember a poll I think asked how many radio you have in your home ,not car radio.
    I have a couple nice ones, one of those GE super radio, I bought new in 1983. It works like a champ. I have a Sharp AM/FM/SW & Cassette like 1987 model that mrs Parrott bought from Singapore, as a wedding gift to me. It is nice. I have my Realistic, Astronaut 5, that was my uncle’s , he broke the telescoping antenna on it, but AM is really good. Very good sound too. I have a Panasonic ‘Panapet’ my parent got be in 1975 new, it works great. There’s a Panasonic National in the safe with a Kaito multiband. ( I should put the Panapet in there too) There is a Zenith table radio in the spare bedroom that was a great uncle’s and it plays great from the 60’s. One of those GE cathedral reproduction radio’s I bought new in 1989. ( I think). There are a couple others laying around. Channel Master Super Fringe range AM in the safe. Its classic.
    I have a GE clock radio that is vacuum tube, my other aunt and Uncle gave me in 1975, it plays great, its just AM though. Only tube radio I have.
    Mrs parrott says I have to many now, and they are obsolete, but they play good.
    What kind do you all have ?

    • Fred Stiening says:

      I may have one pocket radio in a box somewhere. I did have a dual casette DAK radio from the 1970s, but hadn’t used it in probably 20 years – it had D cell batteries left inside, so you can imagine why it went to the landfill. Mrs S. has a few that I know about, and probably a few I haven’t met yet. I don’t listen to over the air at all.

  12. CC1s121LrBGT says:

    ATTENTION CHRIS PLANTE FANS: You may also like the talk show of standup comedian Tom Shillue. I had seen him on Fox News and not been impressed, but I caught his radio show from 3-6 AM ET on Seattle KTTH and was. Turns out that is a repeat of his live show from 3-6 PM ET on Fox News Talk. You can listen live here or via podcasts. Enjoy:

  13. Parrott says:

    Hey CC, Is that the guy that replaced the previous ‘ Tom’ on Fox at that time? I can’t remember his name but he was pretty good, Low key but very logical.
    I will give him a try, Lynchburg VA has a radio station that carries the Fox lineup, and I can listen to them using VLC ( Yeah).

    I listened to John B Wells last night. He has a live show on terrestrial radio, Saturday nights now called ‘ARK Midnight’. It was good. I like listening to him. KLIF 11pm eastern. KYAH Delta, Utah carries it live too, but I cannot get them to load anymore, punks.

    I usually am listening to ‘The Spaceman’ on CFMJ Toronto on Saturday evenings when I am around, but he got into big trouble( Little china) last week.
    He said something allegedly bad, anti-technology, Catalonia should be allowed to go independent and something about the IQ of people that are migrating to Europe.
    So they spanked him & took him off the air last night. I hope its not permanent. He’s out there, but I can filter what is real and may not be real : )
    Google is the deep state, keep smiling, keep smiling !

    M-m-Mel Tillis has d-d-died

  15. Parrott says:

    Mel Tillis was good I kinda saw him at a concert at Lakeside amusement park in Salem Virginia. My parents went with my aunt and Uncle, and my cousins. we were in the park riding rides but every now and then you come back for a chicken leg and root beer, and there was Mel on stage singing.
    wow, I was just a 9 year kid , 70’s.

  16. Fred Stiening says:

    November 2017 – A time to give thanks for living long enough to collect social security.

  17. Fred Stiening says:

    Cumulus Media has exhausted all of its appeals and been delisted from NASDAQ. The management deliberately didn’t make a required debt payment on November 1st to provoke an official default on December 1st. If the parties don’t agree on a prepackaged bankruptcy, Chapter 11 will probably happen on December 1st.

  18. CC1s121LrBGT says:

    As a happy owner of the Grace Digital Internet radio, I got an email from them today (Black Friday) about a 25% off sale for today only ending at midnight PT tonight. Here are their internet radios They include free ground shipping. The Black Friday promo code is BLACK25

    They have indoor and outdoor (portable) models. Looks like they even have an HD radio and a SiriusXM radio if you are into non-internet digital streams.

    I am happy with my “Encore” model. The promo code should work for all their products, such as speakers and other non-radio products.

  19. Fred Stiening says:

    88 year old John Conyers, the Democratic Party House member from Detroit, has decided to relinquish his seat as the Minority leader of the Judiciary Committee

  20. Parrott says:

    Well CFMJ is gone. They decided to pull ‘Spaceman’ on saturday nights cause he said something about Illuminati, antisemitism and South Afrika on the November 11 show.
    well That sux.
    I guess I am going to have to buy a subscription to John B wells.
    I liked AM640 CFMJ I thought they were pretty good,

    • CC1s121LrBGT says:

      It’s Canada. If he grabbed ’em by the ass, he’d still be on the job. 😉

      Move up the dial from 640 to 740 to listen to Richard Syrett’s Conspiracy Show. He is a frequent host of Coast2CoastAM as John B Wells had been, but the show and the podcasts are both free, eh? Mandatory that you consume a Tim Horton’s product during the show, or down one of Toromto’s finast from Labatt’s. 😉

      • Parrott says:

        Thanks CC, Yeah I like Tim Hortons coffee. I really liked their little stores in Charlottetown on PEI a couple years ago.

        oh that was close! F-15 Strike Eagles playing reindeer games! Good Lord that was low. They are doing all kinds of twist-ies. I don’t see any chem-trails though : )
        I wonder if they are getting ready for ‘Little Kim’ ?

        Thanks for the recommendation on 740. I will try it out

        • CC1s121LrBGT says:

          Maybe that quake tonight, centered in Deleware, was someone dropping a coffee pot at the Tim Horton’s in Dover? lol A few years ago, they invaded the US. I live 2 miles from one in NJ. I see they are in Norfolk, Abderdeen, MD and have a number of locations in West Virginia. I know you drive around a lot, so this may help- they have 26 locations within 1000 km (it is a Canadian company, eh) of Norfolk.

          BTW- For you, it might be easier to buy their coffee on Amazon and brew it at home.

    December is lurking in the shadows

    • TheChairman says:

      All I want for Christmas are my two Bitcoins.

      • CC1s121LrBGT says:

        That’s a good one, TheChairman. I really got a chuckle from that. Thank you.

      • Fred Stiening says:

        As the value of bitcoins goes up, is that going to incentive more people to buy more computers to farm more bitcoins and drive the United States into an energy crisis?

        • TheChairman says:

          Oh wow Fred! This could be a long discussion… indeed, the energy and resources being expended is a form of irrational exuberance. How can something with such volatility be a ‘currency’? It trades more like a precious metal. Blockchain technology has a lot of potential uses. Bitcoin is an interesting start, but it has several flaws.

          China now does 30% of Bitcoin blockchain mining. Mining is mostly done in large warehouses full of chip-specific racks made by Bitmain. They also sell their hardware… newer power supplies require 240 volts. Bitcoin payout ‘halving’ and cipher difficulty fluctuates dynamically to incentivize mining, but the days of solo mining are over… look on Amazon, CL/eBay at all the ‘mining rigs’ and equipment listed for sale.

          As in the gold rush, the first miners did okay, but the real money was in selling equipment to prospectors.

          • Parrott says:

            How many Bitcoins can dance on the head of a pin?
            I no longer clean the Cat’s litter box. I mine for bitcoins. Its about the same. Let me know if anyone wants some ‘new’ bitcoins ? I’ll ship’em to you.
            Ponzie scheme. How I see it , they want Chairman to buy a bitcoin with a FRN, ( federal reserve note) at $50 and Chairman wants Fred to buy the Bitcoins at $100 and Fred wants ‘CC’ to purchase the Bitcoins at $150, and ‘CC’ wants Parrott to buy the bitcoins at $200. Parrott gives 401K ( the other Bitcoin) for ‘CC’s bitcoins. Then Parrott tells Mrs Parrott he bought ‘magic beans’, I mean bitcoins. Mrs Parrott files for divorce and says no more hobbies.
            She throws the bitcoins in the litter box. They grow a large vine, through the roof of the house, into the clouds. Parrott climbs the vine, waves at the F-15s as he climbs up.
            He get to the top, George soros is there and says ,”you lose. I will lock you in Matt laurs office”.
            Parrott jumps over the side of the cloud, and flies down the vine.
            Parrott gets to the bottom and sets the vine on fire.
            Burns vine and house down and becomes destitute.
            No, I don’t want any futuristic coin.

            • TheChairman says:

              What I don’t understand is how some of these crypto’currency’ startups are allowed to do an ICO (“initial coin offering” posing as IPO) and walk off with $250 million and no accountability. Where are FTC/SEC and consumer financial protection bureau?

  22. Parrott says:

    CC : did you feel the quake there in Jersey that was centered in Delaware ?

    Gomer Pyle is dead. 87.


    • CC1s121LrBGT says:

      Didn’t feel it at all. NJ gets micro quakes every couple years and I remember one waking me up in the 60s. Didn’t know what it was until I was in school later that day.

      There was only one that I really did feel, I think it was 2011. I was on the ground floor of a multi-story building and everyone around me started talking, “do you feel that? what do you think that is?” by the time we thought it might be an earthquake, it was over. I later told a friend from California that I was about to head for the exit. I got a stern warning to never do that. The shaking pops windows out of their frames and if one is coming down as you walk out, it will slice you like a knife.

      Gome is dead? Surprise, Surprise, Surprise. Gollllly! Shazam!
