How to win all access tickets to an International Film Festival -call a rightwing talk radio station

Yes I listen in to their insanity.




Two all access tickets to the Richmond International Film Festival. We'll take caller #11.

I call...you are caller #4. I call back....you are caller #8. Damn. Call back....you are caller #11.

How many conservatives are calling in for free tickets to a film festival let alone an international one?

April 21-26. All access to any films (all week) I want to go to. There's music too.

Public Enemy Fire Flavor Flav After Bernie Sanders Rally Spat

“ Public Enemy and Public Enemy Radio will be moving forward without Flavor Flav,” group says. “We thank him for his years of service and wish him well”

Public Enemy announced they are permanently “moving forward” without Flavor Flav, firing one of hip-hop’s most memorable hypemen after more than 35 years. The abrupt dismissal comes just two days after the rapper sent a cease-and-desist letter to Bernie Sanders over Chuck D’s concert at the campaign’s Los Angeles rally Sunday.


The group reiterated that Public Enemy Radio — a Chuck D-led offshoot featuring DJ Lord, Jahi and the S1Ws — would still perform at the free, livestreamed Sanders rally gig at 6 p.m. PST at the Los Angeles Convention Center.

The cease-and-desist letter, sent to Sanders Friday by Flavor Flav’s lawyer Matthew Friedman, accused the campaign of using the hypeman’s “unauthorized likeness, image and trademarked clock” to promote the rally, even though Flavor Flav “has not endorsed any political candidate.”

Republicans voting in S. Carolina? Maybe 5%

I was going to ask this as an open question but then I found this.


Despite Trump’s urging, an exit poll from the Washington Post showed just 5 percent of registered Republicans actually voted in the primary, a number too small for pollsters to give details on which Democratic candidate received the most votes from that group. Registered Democrats made up 70 percent of everyone who voted in the primary, while independent voters accounted for 26 percent, according to that poll.

Both South Carolina Democrats and independents voted for former Vice President Joe Biden over Sanders; 54 percent of registered Democrats voted for Biden compared to 18 percent who voted for Sanders, and 35 percent of independents voted for Biden, compared to 23 percent who voted for Sanders.

But that support apparently has limits. If Trump’s theory was that he could get his supporters to juice Sanders’s South Carolina numbers enough to change the outcome of the Democratic primary, he was wrong. Biden’s South Carolina victory was decisive, especially among black voters, who made up over half of the voters on Saturday. Overall, the former vice president received nearly 50 percent of the vote.

So while Trump remains an overwhelmingly popular and influential figure in South Carolina politics, the Democratic primary also served as a reminder that there are limits to what Trump can convince his Republican supporters to do.

Scam calls - answer and hit 2. Learned this from a coworker.

I was letting it ring then adding the number to contacts and then blocking them. Come on Apple! Can't you give us a Block button?

A co-worker got one of those area code - your first three - then some random set of last four number phone calls. I asked what he was doing and he explained "if you were to actually listen to the whole thing, at the end selecting 2 is the take me off the list option".

I have to say it has greatly diminished the lack of calls I get. I told my mom about it (older people get these all day) and she has seen a huge reduction in scam calls.

Mike Pence Calls For Urgent Research Into Which Sin Coronavirus Is Punishment For

Coronavirus czar Mike Pence has wasted no time getting down to business as he met with leading medical experts today to learn the scale of the task he has been entrusted with by President Trump.

“The experts have informed me it is critical we understand the origins of this deadly disease as best we can which is why my first step will be to create a taskforce to identify the sin against God responsible.”

“I want no potential contributing factor to this epidemic ruled out – homosexuality, killing babies in the womb, wasting seed in the manner of Onan, and all forms of fornication of course.”

He is also calling for private entities to join in the research and commended Pastor Pat Robertson of Regent University for agreeing to apply his keen analytic mind to the health crisis the country faces.

“Pat is always at the ready to identify the causal nature of the worst disasters we face, from 9/11 to the AIDS crisis to the Orlando nightclub shooting. I expect him to be no less diligent in his scientific investigations here.”

A message from Bloomberg 😆

COVID-19 litmus test. Ironically, keeping your head in the sand isn't a bad idea.

It's a social/political/news source litmus test

We had a staff meeting yesterday and at my urging we discussed COVID-19. I wanted to know what our plan was. Apparently we do have a pandemic protocol.

But...

We are very good about not discussing politics but I have a good feel as to co-workers leanings. Everyone at the meeting who I'd guess is to the right or believers in the cult News was dismissive. "Hysteria" "news media" "the flu is worse" etc. are clear give aways. I heard that from several people.

My response to a Facebook posting - Ironically, keeping your head in the sand is not a bad idea.
