• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

I have yet to talk to anyone who is benefiting from Trumps agenda. I did not see a tax break, mine went up. Maybe if your a single women with kids you see something. I am a small business owner and I saw nothing.

Where do you get your info from? Oh, that's right, Trump. The worst liar to ever occupy the WH.

Trump is right. While democrats are still going on about Russian collusion and stormy Daniels, he is easily ramming through conservative federal judges because he has the senate majority (they confirm judges). this year, 26 D senators are up for reelection, and only 8 R ones. (numbers from memory)

People who want more gun control, or hate that new Iowa abortion law should be humping hard for the upcoming elections. But no one is. Just a bunch of posturing. Dems will likely lose a few senate seats making matters even worse. Dems have given up.

You think so. That's because Hannity said so.

As far as judges, none of that effects me. Besides, a judge is supposed to rule according to the constitution, not their ideology. Judges don't bother me a bit. Even if Tillis rules against Mueller, the case goes on in the Eastern District as usual.

The real problem is DT. We'll get rid of him, sooner or later. Sooner I hope.

Maybe if you spent less time typing away about politics on a scanner forum you could spend time growing your small business and see tax breaks?

Most small business stores I pass by have HELP WANTED signs in their front windows. I never saw that during the last failed administration.

Millennials to Democrats: It’s the economy, stupid

But in fact, a new Reuters/Ipsos survey suggests that the opposite could be happening. More than 16,000 registered voters between the ages of 18 and 34 responded to the online survey. The conclusion? Millennial voters are losing their enthusiasm for the Democratic Party, and a growing number of them now believe that the GOP is offering better economic leadership. What’s curious about the Reuters/Ipsos survey is that it doesn’t suggest any change in the millennial generation’s negative perception of Trump.

So why are millennials embracing Trump’s party right before a crucial round of midterms? Three words: the tax cuts.

How about you all try and spin this. Michael Cohen receives $500,000 from a sanctioned Russian oligarch in 5 payments beginning in Jan. 2017.

I do believe we're seeing collusion. There is so much wrong with those payments, it can't be discussed in a few sentences.

As far as my business, I am in my sixties and would prefer to retire soon and not grow a business. You have no place commenting on my personal life or what I choose to do with it. My point was simple. No tax break for me. I am squarely in the middle class and seem to remember Trump touting the "Biggest middle class tax break ever" So where's it at????

Their closing in on Trump, bigly.

Where were you looking? in Russia? You guys got it all wrong. Trump may have made the biggest blunder yet with pulling out of the Iran deal. It's not pretty. He is an AH.

Of course you never saw it. You never looked. The economy had been steadily improving since 2010. Those who have failed to see that are deaf, dumb, blind, or stupid. Or more likely, a combination of all of the above.

Haven't the MSM been reporting that under Trump's administration, unemployment for African Americans has dropped to it's lowest level in 17 years? How does that jibe with your statement that Trump openly touts racial, gender and economic discrimination?

Could you post some policies or laws that back your statement? Or did you forget to add "I feel like..." in front of that? For example:

"I feel like they voted for (support) a leader who openly touts racial, gender and economic discrimination."

One issue his supporters face is people like zz running around going 'trump supporter!' Like the guy at the end of Body Snatchers. Calling them out in hopes they're lives are ruined an maybe they even get assaulted.

Just like the whistle blowers the Nazi party had.

Just like the whack jobs who condemned innocent people o death in Salem.

BTW zz, friendly reminder. Hillary lost, Trump is president. The progressives like you drove normal decent people to vote for Trump because they were sick of people like you.

Keep yapping and watch the dems get blitzed in 2018 because all they're doing is finger pointing and whining instead of coming up with an actual platform and agenda.

Sad that you're the reason the left is ****ed.

So Trump and Pompeo do get credit for getting the 3 Americans released from N. Korea. I will give them that.

None of that takes away from the Michael Cohen scandal. Or the fact that Devin Nunes and friends are trying to obstruct justice. Doesn't take away from the 800M that the congress is going to vote on soon to gut from Medicare. Or the 9 billion Trump wants to take away from the Chip program while his wife is preaching 'Be Best'. What a circus.

Soon enough most of the Trump supporters will realize that all this is hurting the very people that voted for him. The dems have an agenda. They are waiting for the opportune time to talk about it to maximize it's value.

Rudy just got fired from his law firm for comments he made publicly about the porn star payment.

Trump sure has a real genius representing him. What a circus. The only way I see to put a stop to all this chaos is for Donald to resign. It will only get worse fast if he sticks around.

That's what they tell you on Fox. He was asked to resign and in my mind, that's fired.

Ease up on the idiot comments.

Harley Davidson closes plant. 800 jobs moved to Thailand.

Fine job Mr. Trump. I thought the tax cuts were supposed to bring jobs back.

The fleecing of America is rearing it's ugly head. Trump is full of it.

Too expensive and inferior in performance, handling, and quality to Japanese motorcycles. Best Harley went bankrupt 50 years ago. My first motorcycle was a Harley XLCH in the early (Get your motor runnin) 70s. Replaced it with a Honda 750 four in 1974. Later a Honda Gold Wing. Never considered buying a Harley again. Seems to be the trend again for Harley Davidson. Plenty of Foxconn jobs available for ex Harley WI employees.


Foxconn Chooses Wisconsin

With 13,000 jobs and a capital investment of $10 billion, Foxconn’s investment in Wisconsin is by far the state’s largest economic development project and is the largest corporate attraction project in U.S. history, as measured by jobs.

The project will be one of the largest greenfield investments by a foreign-based company in U.S. history, as measured by jobs. It will employ 13,000 workers with an average salary of $53,875 plus benefits. The project will also support 10,000 construction jobs over each of the next four years as well as 6,000 indirect jobs from the construction. On top of this, there are at least 22,000 indirect and induced jobs expected to be created throughout the state.
