“When the program started in February 2019, 28% of the people slated to get the free money had full-time jobs. One year later, 40% of those people had full-time jobs. A control group of people who did not get the money saw a 5 percentage point increase in full-time employment over that same time period.”June 11, 2021 at 3:58 pm in reply to: “You Can Fool Some of the People All of the Time!” #50832
Reducing poverty is not necessarily creating dependency. Studies show it actually increases employment.
That’s great. Antenna TV is my favorite channel, with MeTV somewhere behind it. I never found anything of interest on Bounce.
John is a crank and anti-everything new.
I suppose I should get one, in case I have to go to a funeral or something.
Mom (92) and I (66) got the Pfizer vaccine at Walgreen’s, our second dose last Friday, and not a bit of after effect.
SiriusXM will make you a deal if you say you are going to quit. I pay $6 a month and it is very well worth it. I listen to 80s on 8 and Yacht Rock.
Not only was Limbaugh an asshole, but he worked hard at it, and was proud of the result.
He did a lot of damage.
I was mistaken, my Terk antenna is not a Yagi but a log-periodic. Illustration: https://www.terk.com/indoor-antennas/?sku=LOGTVAZ
I found clipping a wire between the elements at the base improves performance on UHF by 1 bar.
We had a power failure a few days ago and I got out a radio to look for some news, and couldn’t find any. Is there any any more?
When I was a radioman, my rule was: when the sun goes up, the frequencies go up, and when the sun goes down the frequencies go down, and the further you are the frequencies are higher. I was amazed how many radiomen did not grasp this basic principle. In Alaskan waters our comm sta was Kodiak though San Francisco would have been easier due to the higher frequencies, especially in winter.
The amplified Terk on the living room TV is on top of the cabinet, five feet off the ground, while my bedroom TV unamplified antenna is on a desk. That may be some of the difference. I am not going to swap them as the big TV works fine now and I don’t want to mess it up. I just fiddle with the bedroom antenna a bit when I change channels. The real test is when it rains.
Hi, 10 got better, 6 got worse, 2, 8, 12 and 32 stayed the same, actually they all got a bit worse. I took it off. I think it has a trap.
