| Political Talk|| I just heard a story about Greece on NPR. - Scoop on 2/27/15 at 7:10 pm|
Greece has met with their debtors and the results of the meeting were that Greece was going to provide housing and food aid to 300,000 destitute families while seeking ways to dramatically increase tax revenue.
Anyone see the vicious circle that Greece has found itself in and how it is a Petri di...

| Music Board|| Beatles worship - Scoop on 2/19/15 at 8:45 pm|
I am not a youngster and not a baby boomer.
I find Beatles worship annoying.
While I appreciate the role they played and how awesome they were 50 years ago, it bothers me that Paul McCartney is on some death tour where he shows up everywhere, sings horribly and everyone just falls all over the...
| Movie/TV Board|| Gettysburg (1993) - Scoop on 2/8/15 at 6:43 pm|
Haven't watched in many years until recently and didn't have anywhere near the knowledge regarding the battle that I do now when I last saw it.
Just a weird movie.
Who decided to have Sheen portray Lee as a checked out, clueless combination of an Alzheimer's patient/poet pot head?

| Music Board|| Great bands lumped in with hair bands that were not hair bands: - Scoop on 1/31/15 at 2:34 am|
Tesla was not a hair band. Tesla is the most underrated band in the history of music.
Cinderella looked like a hair band but their music was not hairbandish. Very bluesy.
Never liked Skid Row but not hair band.
| Political Talk|| The VA gonna VA. - Scoop on 1/28/15 at 4:54 pm|
Not for nothing and technically the VA has standing but this goes to the mentality of government run health care maybe.
A few years ago, my dad wanted to retire a few years early but needed some healthcare coverage to fill the gap for the few years until he became Medicare eligible. He is a Marin...

"A chipped up lawn mower blade. That's gonna bring $280."

Locally produced judge show in Shreveport.
I am assuming that your first impression is that it is ridiculous that a show out of Shreveport is called Cajun anything.
Your first impression would be wrong.
It is way more...

| Tech Board|| Question about Macbook to TV quality using TB/HDMI - Scoop on 1/7/15 at 9:50 pm|
I've never had a need to wire my MacBook to my TV until now. I've come across a shady website for movies that doesn't work on iPad but works great on my Air. I've never liked the quality for movies/TV when Airplayed/Mirrored from my Air. Always a little jumpy and grainy.
Question is has anyone he...

| Political Talk|| Re the police and the insurgents: Anyone else feel stuck in the middle? - Scoop on 12/28/14 at 12:26 am|
My conservatism with libertarian leanings cause me to detest the militarization of law enforcement, the increasing role of LE as fund raisers for government entities and a general discomfort with the growth of local LE in the absence of any particular reason for such growth.
Now we have the insur...
