My, except for the spam that got through it's getting pretty boring around here.
Hey now, although there are some interesting people here, the forum is principally for education, not your entertainment.
You want thrills, then turn on Hee Haw.
Hee Haw baffled and frightened me a little as a child. In retrospect, I see it differently and admire the quality music, corny humor and girl next door sexuality it offered.

Hee Haw mined the same vein as The Dukes of Hazzard. Where Hee Haw provided a low brow showcase for important American Art, The Dukes of Hazzard provided a low brow redemption story that is as American as it gets: well-intentioned good old boys trying to escape their pasts while struggling against the forces of evil and incompetence that surround them.
MediumTex, seeing you post here is like seeing a unicorn for me.

Big fan. ;D ;D ;D

I became a PP proponent long after the epic thread on the Bogleheads forum. I've always enjoyed reading your posts and content.

Ditto re. Medium Tex - I still really like the Spyderco Delica knife he recommended to me. Excellent choice.
Its OK if some people don’t like you, not everyone has good taste.

Portfolio recommendation worked out pretty well, not so sure about the leather chaps.

Wow, if I knew invoking that title could summon you, Medium Tex, I would have done it years ago! O0 (or is it gold’s rise?)

Btw, it was mentioned the other day on the radio as the first really high-tech-produced show — no joke — to film everything out of sequence and then put it all together with computers. You and I are the same age and I have fond memories of the show from childhood.

Good to see you, MediumTex! I've taken the liberty of restoring something approaching your old avatar.

Yeah, Trump wants to reduce immigration from the current insane levels, and therefore he hates Mexicans, Africans, Asians, etc.

Trump points out that Democratic leaders are doing a terrible job at improving places like Baltimore, and therefore he is racist against African-Americans.

Ergo, we have a bunch of mass shootings.

It makes perfect sense.

And when he points out that the fake news is actually a big part of the problem behind the mass shootings, he is 100% correct. The fake news won't acknowledge that our current immigration levels are insanely high; all they do is stoke the flames by pretending there is no problem and blaming Trump for seeing that there is a problem. Same with Baltimore.

Right, but I'm not just talking about the reaction but also the causes. If the mass media would acknowledge some of our real problems, rather than papering over them, then some of those sick white boys might not be driven over the edge, and in addition maybe some of the problems with the inner city would improve.

I'm not holding my breath, because as I've started way too many times, the mass media is beholden to big business, which profits off these problems rather than trying to solve them.

As my favorite example which again I've stated way too many times, high immigration rates drive the native white boys crazy, and they also hurt urban minorities by making their labor less valuable. However, big business loves high immigration rates, so the slave of big business, which is the mass media, keeps promoting it.

Carlsbad Caverns, ooh. I used to visit family in NM, and went to the caverns in the 80s for the mass bat exodus at dusk. Kind of scary.
