Radio stations....

I live in a small town in the NW, and there is a large, wooded park behind our house.
I have a bear that regularly comes thru and destroys my bird feeder.
I put up a motion detector light - with two sockets. I put a spotlight bulb in one and a screw-in plug adaptor in the other. Plugged an old-fashioned radio in the adaptor and set it up to come on for about 30 seconds if motion was detected at night.
Works like a charm.
Only problem is... the loudest, most obnoxious station I can find is RW screamers. Two different stations. The rock stations drift off frequency, and the pop stations' music/talk is too subdued.
Why is it that the best radio reception is from the worst stations? Are they over-powered or something?

I think we SHOULD negotiate with the Russians.

Sit down across the table and calmly explain our "last and final offer".

1) Get out of Ukraine and stop shelling Ukraine cities.

Once that stops... once they are out... we can sit down again and discuss their actions to allow them back into the community of nations.

We don't need to make threats. The sanctions are crippling them, the whole continent is united against them (for now). And we can wait them out... might as well settle sooner rather than later.

Chyron on CNN just now: "Obama warns against focusing too much on trump's bad behavior"....

Holy Shit! Everything he has done...and is doing... is bad behavior.

Why do Dems always pull our punches?
I just don't understand!

Help... I cannot find the roll call vote on a bill...

...and yes, I have looked. Hard. I get everything but the names of the yays and nays.
Anybody find that roll call vote?
"On October 10, the president signed into law H.R. 7846, the Veterans’ Compensation Cost-of-Living Adjustment Act of 2022, which authorizes a cost-of-living adjustment (COLA) for veterans receiving Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) disability compensation, clothing allowance, and survivors receiving dependency indemnity compensation payments."

I know this isn't FB.... thank god... but I think this deserves a spot on GD...

Is this picture 'shopped? nt

Anybody know anything about the judge who signed the search warrant?

Repub?... trump appointee, I hope?

Chuck Rosenburg - on Rachel's show tonight - points out that a search warrant is different than asking somebody for their stuff. It shows lack of trust that the person will comply.... or destroy the evidence.

This is historic.

And my schadenfreude dial is maxxed-out.

I hate phones. Period. I have an old flip-phone for emergencies..

...but I reluctantly need to join the fucking herd that walks around staring at their devices.
Is the "Google Pixel 4a - Unlocked Android Smartphone - 128 GB of Storage - Up to 24 Hour Battery" a good place to start?
I am NOT going to spend $1500 for something that tells my my car warranty will soon run out 5 times a day, but if you have suggestions, I'd appreciate them.

The Secret Service. Beyond reproach? Dan Bongino was a Secret Service agent for 12 years.

That is all.

Poor old confused Biden....

He spoke from the heart, and in actual sentences. He made sense, too.

Poor old confused Biden.

He just lacks the speaking ability of his predecessor.

Sarcasm dial set to "MAX"
