Any suggestions? I find I just flatline when I start writing anything political these days. It's all clatter and din. Does anyone have any ideas for this little piece of real estate? Hit me.
I've followed you since you began. I wish I could offer something concrete, but only wanted to say I'm flat lining too. We are not alone. I'm consistently frustrated with the perpetual false hope. Can't take it any more and just must get out of game for a while. Robert

Same here -- the whole political scene just seems mind-numbing to me right now.

Eh, politics... Lets talk about cars, we need a new one as our truck is going to need some major work soon.
What do y'all think about buying Toyota's now? I have always liked the cars, has this whole thing convinced others to stay away?
I drive a Corolla, have always been a Toyota fan, and I'm hoping to find some good (great?) deals on one, like the zero% financing deal they got going, but really would like to see some $$$ off ....

Hoff, talk about your radio, TV, and gadgetry experiences. I have already learned a lot about things in the electronic field from you. Help us old timers to keep up with the new fangled things in the internet world so we won't be fuddy duddies. Also, you have given us some movie reviews that I found useful.

Maybe something about selling the broadcast part of the spectrum to the wireless folks? Battle of the Lobbyists in terms of either Celebrity Deathmatch or one of the 1960s Japanese Monster Movies? (Which industry is the turtle with the flaming orifices? Which is Mothra?)

you're doing fine, Hoff!
whatever you do or don't do is fine with me.
I've still got an axe to grind, I suppose I always will. I've been belly aching about the world going to hell in a handbasket too long to do anything about it now.
I get where you're coming from, though. I mean, take this Stupak stuff. well, how can you counteract stuff like that? everything has become "he said/she said" with so little regard for what's true and what's hooey. what's a brother to do? I still know people who act like the HCR bill is some deep dark masonic secret. you tell where to go to read it and they just look at you with blanks that say "didn't you hear me? it's a deep dark secret" you've hit a wall. I know when I'm licked.
CNN hired the guy who runs Red State and they're real proud of themselves. you think about this stuff too much you get gloomy. who needs gloomy?

This is the standard effect before the rise of the third candidate. Party A(a) and Party A(b) both have slowly twisted themselves into a Gordian knot of mutual action and loathing. Start looking around for the guy/gal whose going to become that shot out of the blue.

... and if you want to farm a post or two out to a few posters here (with your editorial approval, what with your name on the blog and all), feel free!

Please talk about the Catholic church. Hammer these animals and get them to pay their share of the freight costs of running a civilization from which they have taken so much treasure. They are the world's richest business and I am sick of them. 7 of 9 US supreme court justices are catholic. What a shame. Cobbnek.

Has anyone else noticed the new wave of commercials on the radio these days touting the "credit card bailout program" if you have $10,000 or more in CC debt? These spots really offend me because the make it sound like they are part of the government plan to re-energize the economy. I mean...how sleazy can you get?
They are everywhere, each one more misleading than the rest. Blood sucking parasites looking to make a buck off of other peoples misery. I'm sure there are some legit firms out there but "the banks got their bailouts, now it’s your turn" makes me puke.
Just my pet rant of the month.

More gadget stuff would be fun and a nice change of pace. I just got myself an iPhone and love it....other than the crappy crappy battery. What is the point of having a handheld gadget that does all this but can't hold a charge more than six hours?

Catholic nuns vs. bishops
Mormons vs. Glenn Beck

How about information on how to have a more gentle impact on the earth - the info is out there, but not in one easy place. It needs to be mainstreamed, not only available to the alternative set. Everyday folk need to know they can do some of this and it has to be reasonably priced - links to where you can get the best deals.
We lived for 7 years in a self-built home - totally solar and water collection in the desert of Arizona. It was a great demo project in that the home didn't look or feel any different from any other new home - had a dishwasher, etc. I would like to see this happen in city living so that people could cut down on their impact, but also save on utility costs.
Most of the available technology is expensive, but prices would come down if more people utilized the products.
I agree politics are just too ugly these days - so anything that would be positive in nature and more grass roots.
