re: Frontline episode: " The Choice 2020: Trump vs. Biden" - LSUgusto
Frontline used to produce some of the fairest reporting in the world. I adored that show at one time. But, as a part of PBS, they’ve been compromised. I don’t expect them to be fair anymore....

re: Where were you and what were you doing. - LSUgusto
Working for a small-town daily newspaper that normally published an afternoon edition. The chief editor was making his final fixes on the last pages of the paper as we were wrapping up that day’s publication, which was already being plated up on the press. That’s when I saw the TV in the newsroo...

re: GA Secretary of State announced over 1000 double votes. - LSUgusto
There’s a chance these folks didn’t know an absentee ballot was submitted under their registration. Just like dead voters weren’t the ones who cast their ballot. But, as another poster pointed out, if an absentee ballot is counted, which should happen before Election Day, their name should be cr...

re: mayor of los Angeles is on twitter right now imploring his city to turn off appliances - LSUgusto
Fukushima was an old plant near the end of its life when it got hit by a worse-case scenario, not truly imagined by today’s lens of threats to nuclear production. Modern nuclear technology is so much more advanced, now, you don’t need nearly the same infrastructure for a very safe and efficient n...

re: Iowa, LA baw interviewed post Hurricane Laura - LSUgusto
By the way, I prefer the distinct pronunciation because many people who say I-O-Way pronounce the state name normally, I-O-Wuh. Makes it easy to differentiate....

[quote] I'm impressed with the SWLA community post storm. Just a bunch of people working to get their lives back in order[/quote] That’s why Lake Charles isn’t getting more constant media attention. If everyone was just sitting around begging and waiting for the government to save them, the nation...

re: Laura - President Trump visits Lake Charles, Louisiana for Hurricane Response Update - LSUgusto
Fair enough. There still must be things that can be done to make the system more robust. Perhaps more storm-proof poles down a few of the major corridors? I haven’t seen McNeese near Kirkman where there are big metal poles. But, if they did okay, perhaps that should be the case down Ryan, Broa...

re: Laura - President Trump visits Lake Charles, Louisiana for Hurricane Response Update - LSUgusto
SIAP, but seeing the complete rebuild of the electrical grid in the city got me thinking. This is about the third time in 30 years the grid has been substantially wiped out. The big ice storm in the 90’s was the first instance I was thinking of, followed by Rita in 2005, and now Laura in 2020. ...

re: Joe Biden has been trying for 32 years to be elected President - LSUgusto
[quote]This video of journalists cancelling Biden never gets old[/quote]Man! Seeing those old clips when media was merely “biased” instead of all-out corrupt... the good ole days? Loved the McLaughlin Group back then. Today? PBS won’t even allow comments on their anti-Trump YouTube videos. ...

re: Covid Restrictions Are Inhuman - LSUgusto
I’ll just add that, in Lake Charles, where people are literally trying to survive every day as best they can, the masks are gone. The only masks you see being worn are by store owners and government workers, who’ve probably been threatened by JBE to do so. frick him....

re: Internal Universal Films Memo Reveals Social Justice Agenda That Will Drive Content - LSUgusto
I attended a film industry summit and learned that “if you are diverse” (exact words), you should submit your movie script because it has a very good chance of getting picked up. Even though I’d wager that I was probably the most diverse mother fricker in the room, given my bizarre heritage, my sc...

re: Do any resident dems actually believe Trump disparaged our fallen soldiers? - LSUgusto
I’ll remind you what the leftist poster “VOR” said here back when this tactic of using made-up statements was used against Romney: “Well, It sounds like something he’d say, so in that sense, it is true.” Don’t hold your breath waiting on honesty from Democrat leftists....

re: A thought about Donnie Darko (kinda long -- spoilers) - LSUgusto
[quote]It's perfect as is.[/quote]I don't disagree because trying to explain what was happening would have made the movie considerably longer without editing things down. Given the "layers of an onion" we're talking about, that would have sacrificed and taken away from what makes this such a uniq...
