PNW Banter Thread in '19-'20

California, Oregon, and Washington have MUCH higher gas prices that the rest of the country. Could it have something to do with these states being blue states?

 

Earlier on, California was the biggest robbery in the country, except for Hawaii, but now Oregon and Washington have caught up in the gouging.

Vancouver BC is up to over 4.80usd/gal. That’s around 6.50 Canadian.

Cost of living is higher in the west coast states right? Oil men figure they may as well stick it to the people who can fork over as much as possible, while the poor go broke because they can't afford to drive anywhere.  If gas ever gets so expensive that a critical number people literally can't afford to go anywhere, would that destroy the economy?

Never seen an episode. Is it good?

 

It's worth the HBO subscription and hours of viewing.

**** Bernie Sanders.

**** Hillary Clinton and the DNC. They did themselves and the country in with their arrogance and fakeness. They gave us Trump, not Russia, not Comey. It shouldn’t have even been close.

 

And I 100% guarantee you that Trump wins again if the Dems nominate another fake a** talking point machine like Harris or Biden. I said this in 2016 and I’ll say it again: it’s all about the message, not the messenger.

 

Trump’s ability to go out there and ad-lib on high octane for hours on end without a teleprompter has an element of authenticity to it that is hard to match and needs to be countered somehow. Running a fake a** politician out there with canned speeches and rehearsed, regurgitated one-liners is a recipe for complete and utter disaster.

 

An example: Kamala Harris..so fake..claiming to have listened to albums in college that hadn’t been released yet while smoking weed, only to be called out by her father the next day on her bulls**t. She sounds worse than HRC with her truency campaign and can’t seem to take a firm position on anything. Are you f**king kidding me? Is this what the Dems are trying to present as an alternative to Trump? If so, it ain’t gonna work.

James won in a squeaker.  Won by $18 for his 18th consecutive win. The guy who came in second had $53,999 which is the highest losing score in history. He went home with $2,000.

I literally half-fell asleep watching Biden’s speech the other day. Dude is barely even alive.

 

Please tell me this isn’t who we’re going to nominate? It’s a guaranteed loss, barring a recession or something else bizarre and unforeseen.

The only person who scares me (as far as beating Trump) out of all the Democratic candidates is Mayor Pete. That guy is A grade and although I don't agree with practically any of his policies, even I find myself going "Man, I like this guy" after watching a few of his interviews.

 

Honest. Intelligent. Not canned. Answers the question. Sure he might not be as fiery or scorched-earth as Trump, but I'm sure many people would welcome that - both Democrat and Republicans who are reluctant to vote Trump again in 2020.

 

The DNC is probably not smart enough to realize what they have in him but so far that doesn't seem to matter - he is getting growing support from everyday Americans and seems to appeal to a lot of blue collar people. Biden? Meh. Harris? Meh. Sanders? Too left. Warren? Ditto. Buttigeig? Watch the f*ck out.

Another blowout for James. Still staying above $77k so he is close to averaging the previous record high total.

Yep, the guy on the right looked like he had some potential at first, but James took control as usual. He answered a few questions wrong. If only he would get a Daily Double wrong.

Lots of Democrats don't want a straight white male. In 2016, some Democrats voted for Hillary because she is a woman.

Jeopardy is the highest-rated syndicated program right now. If James wins tomorrow, the show takes 2 weeks for the teachers tournament so the ratings will drop lol. Also, the winner of the teachers tournament will receive less money than like 6 of James’ wins.

James and Blazers both got Ws last night. James in a blowout and the Blazers in an unbelievable 4OT marathon that I have a feeling will demoralize the Nuggets.

 

James is off for 2 weeks for the boring teacher's tournament, while the Blazers will try to put the clamp down on Denver this Sunday.

That game was incredible. Nuggets had their chances to close it out and failed each time.

New late record for the OCTA bus tonight. 16 minutes late. They are smashing records like James Holzhauer, but in a negative way. At least you can track the bus in real time on Google Maps so you don't need to stand out there waiting for 20 minutes with no clue whether or not the bus broke down.

Teacher's Tournament was boring today. They missed a lot of clues.

 

So slow and plodding.  Drives me crazy seeing players use poor strategy after watching James write a book on how to do it.  I realize these players never saw James play but still...

We have this dumb neighbor. They first got one dog who barks like a maniac any time he sees a person less than 30 feet away from him. That dog was named Freckles. As if that was not bad enough they got another big barker and named him Liberty.

 

They will sometimes have their window open that faces the sidewalk and the 2 dogs are usually there barking at anyone who passes by. They jump all over the blinds too. Sometimes they make my dog mad and they will have a fight at the window. They don't realize it is their stupid dogs causing the problem and ring our bell and blame it on our dog. So I always need to have my dog on a short leash any time their stupid dogs are in the window and if she's in the front looking for lizards and hears their dogs barking I need to make sure she does not go over there.

 

This is not the only thing that makes these people stupid though. In their backyard they have a whole bunch of white lights, like Christmas lights, twisted strangely around the patio roof in the backyard. They have them on almost every night. They also have a very bright light that shines into our backyard which they keep on all night sometimes. Really dumb people.

 

Also, they often leave their dogs outside after dark even though there are coyotes in our area that could easily jump the fence and eat them for dinner.
