South Floridians eager to cash in on their clunkers

Sure, now please define an "American made" car. How about that Yukon, is that one? Where is it made? Or maybe a Camry, or a BMW M3, or a Honda Civic, or a Nissan Altima? The "foreign " cars are more American than the GMC. Wait, Yukons are built in Mexico, that is part of North America.....ohhhh, I get it  (Jun 30, 2009 | post #112)

FPL defends proposed rate increase

Is he actually trying to say that my rate has not increased since 1985? Ummmm, I call BS. We should be amongst the cheapest state wide, it's the economy of scale. It costs more to provide power service to rural parts of the states, therefore their bill should be more.  (Jun 25, 2009 | post #11)

Sorry, didn't clarif. Where do you plan on getting an analog broadcast signal from which you can watch your local television station? I'm sure watching your VCR, DVD, video games, video camera, etc etc etc, will occupy your time after the storm, but I doubt you will get much information from them (unless it's an old tape from a previous storm). Try to follow along  (Jun 23, 2009 | post #76)

I know exactly what the point of the article is, go back and read my original posts. You're responding to my response which had to do with OTA antennas. Regardless, power usually comes back well before cable which tends to go in a strong breeze  (Jun 22, 2009 | post #61)

I didn't say they weren't fine for an analog signal, but where, exactly, did you plan on getting an analog signal? Where you going to be dragging around an external OTA digital tuner? That just spells p-o-r-t-a-b-l-e. Enjoy that at the next dolphin game  (Jun 22, 2009 | post #60)

True, and you'll be the idiot I'm watching waiting in line for ice because: a) you didn't prepare, b) you didn't have access to a TV or radio to find out where you can go to get ice, c) somehow you think ICE matters. Your ignorance is dumbfounding  (Jun 22, 2009 | post #59)

Please forgive me, I hadn't realized that wins are now categorized by the margin of victory. I was still under the impression that a record was WINS and LOSSES. Silly me  (Jun 22, 2009 | post #52)

How are they obsolete? Serious? Did you read the article or just the comments? Let me try and help: During and following a major storm it is very likely that cable service and satellite will be unavailable. Most satellite dishes would have been removed prior to the storm or by the storm making satellite service unavailable (for a time). Without either cable or satellite service, most people will rely on over the air (OTA) television broadcasts. If there is no power, people would expect to watch TV on a portable device. Since the old portable televisions contain ONLY an analog receiver, they will be obsolete considering analog television transmission no longer occurs. I'm neither of your stereotypes yet I DO rely on an antenna. I have an antenna in my attic which is used to capture local digital broadcasts, I've used it for digital TV since 2003. Most HD sports broadcasts look better on antenna instead of HD Satellite or HD Cable, I have and use all three. So while your sitting there, staring at a screen of snow or a message "Searching for Signal" I'll be sitting back, relaxing, enjoying one of the 30 or so locally broadcast digital channels, many in HD  (Jun 22, 2009 | post #33)

I was wondering how long it was going to take before someone realized that most portable TVs are now obsolete.  (Jun 22, 2009 | post #16)

Sniff, sniff. I'd love to know where and when I said it was okay to torture an animal? This entire debate is very simple, keep DOMESTICATED animals indoors or within your own yard or risk losing them to some psycho, a wild animal, animal control, or someone protecting their own animals or property. Pretty simple, even you should be able to understand....then again, maybe not. What makes you think the animals were tortured, they were mutilated, if that occurred AFTER death, it is not torture (assuming they were killed expeditiously). By the way, if these cat owners had a heart they wouldn't have let them roam the neighborhood  (Jun 14, 2009 | post #483)

Thomas Jefferson recording the words of Cesare Beccaria: "Laws that forbid the carrying of arms . . . disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes . . . Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man."
