    I once had a project for when I eventually retire: to transfer recordings on 78rpm to digital format. However, these days a lot of the songs are available in good quality on youtube; it doesn’t take 1 minute to get the file and separate the audio. :sad:

  • Ratboy

    I am back and I apoligize! I left the darn door open and now we have……………………………..IDIOT ALERT!!!!!!!!!

  • usa8888

    I invite coffee and all right wingers to tell me how cutting spending will grow the economy and increase jobs. The fact is, like Mitch McConnell, your only objective is to get Obama out of office and you are willing ruin the US economy to do that. Of course, this didn’t work (getting Obama out of office) but you are intent on ruining the economy as a result of lack of economics knowledge. It’s so bad that your own moderates in the GOP disagree with you AND you have NO plan for growth whatever. The right wing is gripped in racism and backward thinking, but fortunately you lost the election BIGTIME and the American People agree with obama on virtually all policy issues….

    The truth about GREEN cars and why you see more of them on the west coast.

    The Prius the best performing Green car only gets 20 mpg city and 30 mpg highway when the temp is below 32 degrees.

    Also, Prius and other hybrid explain that MPG is based on how you drive their car. Well, that is the same for every car. When I drive my 2002 Buick Park Ave in the same method they tell you to use with Hybrids, I get 27 mpg city and 32 mpg highway no matter the temp, with my 6’8″ husband, 6’3″ son and 6’1″ son sitting comfortably in the car.

  • usa8888

    the recist, backward thinking right wingers are incapable of answering my questions…and if they can’t answer my questions, how can they win elections…The answer: they can’t…

  • usa8888

    Please, right wingers, keep talking absurdities—this is really helping us to win elections. 2014 is looking good. the only chance the right wing has is to suppress the vote and gerrymander districts, but the courts are addressing this ruse….

  • usa8888

    Are there any right wingers who have the brains or the fortitude to state the right wing GOP accomplishments or how cutting spending will grow jobs and economy? So far –no takers–it’s been 2 weeks. That’s why the right wing consitently loses elections. Feel free to call slimebaugh and ask him….

  • Cathy

    Mikey O, Benghazi is a big one against Hillary too. I believe the reason Bill come to save Obama was truly to save Hillary. They had to win the election or Benghazi would have been exposed.

    Ratboy you are worse then my kids. When will you learn to keep the door closed?

  • Raz

    USA8888, dude whatever you are smok’en I want some. The company I work for sent an email out today about our government contracts and how they may be effected by the sequestration. It’s not good for us, and prolly not for a lot of companys with government contracts. Medicaid is in a bind, they are trying to go around it by putting most of the recipients on hmo’s but it’s still medicaid.

    On a happier note, it’s free coffee day at Xtra-mart. So you in the New England or NY, get yourself a cup.

    @Mike W
    d.d. & Coffee Steve

    If you have access to today’s WSJ there is an interesting article on how some of the pricing for the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) is being determined

    I read yesterday’s but not today’s because I no lonber buy the WSJ , so, I pick up stories a day , or so , later. There was a time, a few years ago, I subscribed to 5 daily newspapers.

    – –

    Featherweight 4 8’s might like to get his health care at one of these.

    WSJ reported yesterday :

    Rite Aid will open 58 stores, across four markets, which contain in-store clinics providing virtual doctor visits conducted via Web camera. Doctors can write prescriptions after the 10-minute consultations. Maybe, he has jock itch.


    Biden Advises Shooting Shotgun Through Door

    US News & World Report

    Local TV station WAVY 10 reports that the man observed two masked men leaning into his bedroom window. The men allegedly had weapons and told him to close his bedroom door. He stepped outside of his bedroom and did as instructed, then fired his shotgun through the closed door and then several more times at the window.

    Virginia Beach man charged for doing exactly that

  • Raz

    And if you know anything about medicaid, you don’t wanna be on it.

  • Chriscee

    I invite all my fellow conservatives on this site to start ignoring the likes of usa8888 and a few others. They wouldn’t know the truth if it slapped them in face. So it’s best to just ignore them…rather than argue with them.

  • usa8888

    Rax–yes, you can blame the backward thinking right wing (even boehner tried to stop it but caved to the right wing).

  • usa8888

    D.d.’s arguments are completely vacuous. Please tell me how an assault weapon has ANYTHING to do with your 2nd amendment rights……
    The world is changing but the right wing is caught in a time warp in the 1880’s….

  • usa8888

    Chriscee–you are a perfect example of the right winger I was alluding to…..you are helping us win elections….

  • usa8888

    The American people will blame the right wing GOP for any problems with the sequester……that’s as it should be and a GOOD thing……

  • 1966

  • Ratboy

    Do you smell all that dung from the Dung Beetle???? It is REALLY full of it today!!!

  • usa8888

    This just in: Michelle Obama’s campaign for healthier kids in schools is working. She appeared on Dr. Oz’s show yesterday. This is already making a difference in keeping kids healthy and helping them eat the right foods for proper health–which will DECREASE healthcare in the future………

    Fox Fake News and Rupert’s WSJ have not run this story yet…..

  • usa8888

    Thanks, Rat, for helping us win elections!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
