About Me

I'm in my 50's. I served 6 years in the Air Force. I've worked in the following fields: Military; Civilian Meteorologist; Dial-Up Internet Service Provider; Equipment Rental; Information Services; Currently working as an electrician. Married for just over 30 years. Was a registered Republican for the first election I was involved in and voted for Reagan. I changed my affiliation afterward and have voted Democrat ever since. I am a Bernie Sanders supporter. Any person that promotes a platform that supports the greatest portion of the American people is a person that I can support. Why would anyone have a problem with that?

Your thoughts on Paramount+

I bought a subscription a couple of weeks ago and started watching Star Trek Discovery. I've since finished that series and Star Trek Picard. I've watched a few episodes of Frasier.

The 10 bucks was well spent for the Star Trek series, but I'm not really finding anything else worth watching and I plan to cancel my subscription.

I believe I've seen a positive post about Paramount+ at some point, and am wondering if I'm missing something?

There is a billboard in my part of the world warning

us that marxism is the threat. On the billboard is this URL:


I haven't looked at everything.

America, a "3rd world nation"?

I spoke with a Brazilian man this morning who stated that in his travels across the US building Dollar General stores, he has encountered areas in our country that resemble the devastating poverty that he grew up understanding from his country. He's now a citizen of the US and fears that we are fast becoming a nation of haves and have nots. Much like where he grew up.

He also spoke to me about the dancing women in Rio during Carnival. He wanted me to know that the dancing women dressed in, well, not much clothing, are actually professional dancers (not strippers) who are hired to dance during Carnival.

He also mentioned, when I told him how much I would like to go to Rio some day, that he's never been to Rio De Janero. He told me that he was a southern Brazilian, and laughed as he's now a southern American.

Star Trek Discovery - Paramount+ Anyone?


If you're a Star Trek fan, the 9.95 a month is worth it for this series alone. At least until I've binge watched all of them. I see that there is a Star Trek Picard series as well. Has anyone watched that one?

I've finished season 1 of Discovery and am watching the 1st episode of season 2 now. I'm so impressed. It's as impressive as any big budget science fiction movie I've ever seen. It brings in information from ST Enterprise, as well as early original series.
