    Obama's Popularity

    Strange,isn't it that he is far more popular here than in the USA. It must be his charisma-----our pols are sorely lacking in any of that asset.

    The Proposed 10 dollar Cable Tax

    Any serious opinions on this new money grab? Personally,as we have no local programming here, I plan on cancelling my cable if this goes through..the 4 hours per week [only 4 shows I like] isn't worth the 40 something i shell out each month.

    TV Networks In Financial Trouble

The CBC has had its...

    The American Undecided Vote

    One more day before this edition of the endless election takes a breather and there are between 6 to 9 percent of the voters still undecided on how to cast their ballots.

    Needed:Better Class of Hookers

    :smile:Judging by the photo of one in the local rag,it's little wonder that she left the business to find more profitable work.
