    I have had Christmas music since November 1st on one channel and it has been nonstop Christmas music for at least two weeks from what I can tell.

    And the bell ringers are out here too. At least they waited until the week of Thanksgiving to start.

    I'm ready for them. I don't have to be on Fox's side though. Christmas season is ideally December 1st but I can accept the day after Thanksgiving but I will fight back against anything earlier.

    For me it starts the day after Thanksgiving. That's when I like to put the tree up. :)

    They had many "experts" commentating how the new GOP House can impeach Biden for the crisis at the border. Fentanyl getting into the hands of children.

    Can a president be impeached over a policy? I thought impeachment had more to do with them committing an actual crime.

    I may have heard it wrong and they were talking about Hunter's laptop and it pivoted to border talk.

    Well I do know they wanted to impeach the Homeland Security guy over the border, but I think he may have just resigned.

    Republicans will make up something to impeach for, which will fail because it always does and there is literally nothing to impeach for but they are doing it to show off to their base and nothing else. It is literally going to be a show trial.

    I have seen this all over the place. Not one of more than a dozen stories I saw directly led with he was an active duty cop who murderd a teenage girls family. Many of them fail to even mention he was "involved" with law enforcement in the title.

    That's lame compared to what we had in Finland earlier in the year with nurses threatening to strike, even at ICU and emergency units. They were asking what pretty much everyone else in the country thought was way too much and considering the Covid situation. They did come to an agreement which ended up being pretty much what they were initially offered (the sam increase municipal workers were given throughout the line) and it turned out their union heads thought they were getting more but realized late they weren't. And the whole affair rubbed the union members the wrong way (they were not happy with threats to ICUs) so much that the union heads are in trouble. Though pretty much everyone agreed they deserved higher pay, the same people also thought they asking for too much and as a result the PR damage didn't benefit them.

    I can only assume it means investing in green energies and the like.

    "Woke" is now just their buzz word for everything that they don't like. Basically everything dealing with race, gender, rights, climate.... "Woke" is the new "SJW."

    So Tucker Carlson decided the NHL is attacking white people because they want more black players playing hockey... :funny: I'm watching the Majority Report video on it and....wow.

    If hockey were any more white you wouldn't be able to see the players on the ice. Being willing, even encouraging non-white players to join them is a good thing, unless you are Tucker Clansman.

    Most Americans under the age of 21 are not white in the United States. Where else is the player base and audience going to come from? They'll either become more inclusive or they'll shrink.
