    This is the first time in a very long time that my itemized deductions didn’t exceed the new higher standard deduction, $13,300 in my case.

    “Repubs must not allow Pres Obama to subvert the Constitution of the US for his own benefit & because he is unable to negotiate w/ Congress.”

    BUT IT’S A NATIONAL EMERGENCY!!!! Trump will lose Coulter and Hannity and what remains of his base supporters if he doesn’t get this!!!!

    You can probably deduce something useful from a community non-profit station’s public financial disclosure files.

    For example KQAC: https://www.allclassical.org/wp-content/uploads/2012/10/2017-ACPM-Financial-Statements-FINAL.pdf

    In FY 2017 KQAC spent $2.5M on “Program Services”, of which $1.26M was “Production”. That’s a heck of a lot of “Production” expense if a significant percentage of their on-air staff is unpaid volunteers. That “Production” expense is about 2 x the entire annual budget of KRVM.

    Someone alert the media. KRVM AM-1280 is back in HD again after a lengthy hiatus.

    Back in the day I’m sure Boss Radio KHJ’s competitors considered it to be a radio market crushing machine.

    This Oregon dipshit had a solid HD lock on KSL for about 5 minutes yesterday around 5:30PM, in the car near UO.

    I had a TRS-80 Model 1, and later a Model III. The floppy storage systems were notoriously unreliable. I wrote a floppy diagnostic program for them called The Floppy Doctor, in Z-80 assembly language. I loved the Z-80. Floppy Doctor is still the go-to diagnostic tool for collectors of those old systems.

    I also had a Tandy Color Computer. The only thing I remember from it is the game Dino Wars.

    Considering there’s something crazy going on with Trump every single day, whether it’s ludicrous tweeting or bizarre cabinet meetings, the lack of discussion here is an indication that we’re all just worn out by it all. Possibly a little speechless as there’s nothing left to say. Mouths agape, words fail us.

    I think it’d be a good deal for everyone if Trump were offered incremental payments of $500M per month for one year toward his decorative steel slats, but on one condition: He cannot tweet for that month. If he tweets even one time, he forfeits that month’s $500M. Very simple. He potentially gets more than his $5B, and we get relief from his insane tweeting.

    It’s definitely getting real for anyone with a 401k or other retirement money that’s being decimated almost daily by dear dotard’s ill-advised and unnecessary tweeting.

    After some friendly back and forth emails with KLCC’s engineer about their dropping HD, I emailed KLCC “management” to express my opinion. Instead of replying to me (a subscribing member-listener), they handed it off to the engineer to deal with.

    We’re into Week 3 of Herb’s prediction. Has it gotten real for Democrats yet? Maybe that court ruling declaring Obamacare unconstitutional (as a result of the individual mandate being dropped by Trump & Friends) is it?

    Age discrimination is still very real. And unfortunately very hard to prove.

    We’re halfway through Week 2. Has it gotten real for Democrats yet? Was that Tuesday circus-themed reality show of a meeting between Trump, Pelosi and Schumer where it got real?
