    This is going to be my last post on this forum for multiple reasons. First I am tired of the never ending threads here denigrating those buying systems that most posting here can't afford as well as the constant berating of those with "subjective" opinions, unless of course the subjectivity comes from Chris which all his sycophants would never question. Second, I am tired of the "moderator" acting as some dictatorial figure, determining some of the most vile comments to be acceptable as long as it meets his political leaning; which is his right to do as this is his site, but I don't have to tolerate it. Third, the Progressives on these threads prove themselves to be the most intolerant, propagandist brainwashed drones I have ever encountered spewing their hateful polemics, platitudes and generalizations. Lastly, there really isn't that much regarding audio exchanges occurring here anymore and it has become mainly a forum for criticizing. And now my response to Terersa which will garner me another "never expiring penalty point" that is so petulant, I didn't even know what to say except to laugh hysterically when I got Chris' warning. "Sarah Palin may not be very intelligent, however that is not an excuse to slander her". Well Teresa you just did slander her. From your comments it seems like Palin is much more intelligent than you. "to have seen protections of the First Amendment expand way beyond its original intentions" Really, you have no idea what you are talking about and never have pertaining to the topic and it shows every time you and that other guy try to claim what is or is not covered by the 1st Amendment. Read the 1st and 14th Amendments and try to understand what you are talking about what the standard is I pointed out that has to be proven to be a violation of the 1st Amendment. Unless there is a new amendment or Constitution eradicating the 1st Amendment it is the law, except of course by Progressives who want to be the arbiters of what is and is not acceptable and single handedly rewrite the Constitution. "I feel that every heterosexual couple on Planet Earth should have only one child, at least until the world's population decreases to 1 billion. After that one child, both the male and female should be sterilized. And we should be encouraging the homosexual lifestyle since gay people cannot reproduce" I have to say of all the absolute absurd, hateful and depraved propaganda I have heard from Progressives, this may be up there with the most bizarre and deranged I have ever read. I recommend you get some help. Reading your post is like a trip through Bizarro World. Keep America Great! Trump Wins 2020

    Yes Teresa, no matter how your "attempts" lack facts. But in today's world, who cares about facts, when you can just "believe and know".

    "So you actually believe"?? NO, I know, it has nothing to do with "believing" it is understand the facts. It's bad taste just like just about everything coming out of Hollywood BUT it doesn't violate the 1st Amendment. As I said above and if you really understood the 1st Amendment and the court rulings that further defined it, any "violation" of must meet the standard of "imminent lawless action" Advocating murder is a common among pro-choice people, no? Your argument, no matter how simple, holds no legitimacy. Nothing would make me happier than to see Madonna, Maher, Behar, Kathy Griffin, BLM, Antifa, skinheads, etc jailed BUT what they are doing is not a violation of the 1st Amendment. Let me say, I don't support "hate speech" but even more I really don't support those who think it is in their purview to be the arbiter of what "hate speech" is. This is where we are with the left today.

    If I were you (thank God I'm not) I would do some research before doing copy and paste arguments. I can give you examples by one of your heroes that violates YOUR definition: Bill Maher: "Palin is dumb c-nt" Bill Maher : "Sarah Palin is a dumb Twat" Bill Maher to Milo: "impish British fag." Not only did he NOT violate the 1st Amendment, which according to your sophomoric cut and paste "factoid" claims he did BUT you guys think this is entertainment.

    WRONG. No matter how distasteful what you “believe” doesn’t make it so.

    Sorry the cut and paste debates so prevalent in today’s “all knowing” world doesn’t work and your cut and paste has no legitimacy no matter how distasteful the examples

    Whatever that inane comment means.

    It’s not “my party” but your pathetic bias and absolute despicable preconceived notion of what a Conservative represents. You should b ashamed of yourself for making these generalizations.

    Absolutely. Tolerance only goes one way today.

    Don't want to start a long drawn out left v. right argument here, BUT, let me just put a couple of things into perspective: 1. "you are prohibited from inciting violence" as not being in the purview of the 1st Amendment is not entirely correct. It has to meet the standard of "imminent lawless action" So the "speaker" has to be held to that standard. Just inciting violence is not a violation of the 1st Amendment as we have seen with skinheads, Antifa, BLM, etc. We can debate this all day and I would argue that there is a clear and unambiguous bias against Conservative speech and thought in the media, social media and the entertainment industry. I can go on, but.... 2. "1st Amendment only protects your speech from the Government" is not entirely true. It's a LONG debate, with a host of example and court rulings as to what is and is not ones free speech rights. 3. "other than the protected classes of people. Which I bet you don't like...." is making an ugly inference that so many of us on the right are really tired of. Why do you guys literally ALWAYS fall back on that argument? It's offensive and you are making assumptions and comments about people you have no right to make BUT it's your "1st Amendment Right" to do so.

    Article: Introducing the Wilson Audio TuneTot

    From my perch I was hoping these things were going to be a real “monitor” with a stand option and not some peculiar speaker needing a close rear wall “bookshelf/computer table” solution. Wilson broke their cherry in the monitor market and was one of my favorites years ago, that IMHO, they have never recreated. This would have, IMHO, been one of those products but instead they chose to make some limited 13k solution for something few of us want or can afford. This is could of been a rebirth of the “WATT” but instead, again IMHO, nothing but a niche product that has almost nothing to do with their origins.

    Article: Introducing the Wilson Audio TuneTot

    If you think they are hideous, try living with them. No matter how you dress them up, regardless of color, they are as you say "hideous". I usually don't care what things cost, what people spend their money the way so many on these threads seem to care BUT I just don't see or understand this product. Been around this hobby since the early 80s and these are one of the most bewildering products I have seen in the "high end". Just my opinion but I don't get it or the "ecosystem". I have owned many Wilson products and this one (and for that matter no other) has no future in my household.
  13. This was recommended to me. Not sure but another thing to consider. I have just gone the renderer route with my MSB and that part was recommended. http://www.emosystems.com/product/en-70hd-ultra-compact-network-isolator/

    Why? You have all the answers, no? The Government will save the planet, no? Taxes and mandates, that's the answer, so why do you care about my "constructive contributions" when you and progressive pals have it all figured out? As I said, debating you is a sophomoric masturbatory exercise, so it isn't worth my time. Take comfort in your ideas, propaganda and brainwashed notion of what works. I mean, who can debate you, surely not a me, a Conservative.

    Truth is Peter, I had you pegged from your post and really have no desire to engage you and your progressive "government is the answer" approach with you spewing some progressive talking points which has no legitimacy to the point at hand other than an "I know". Trust me I have many well thought out ideas about the environment, how man impacts that environment whether it be with polluting or otherwise, but to "debate" the likes of you, particularly on this forum, is just a waste. My thoughts of the topic require much more sacrificing with much more direct benefit than any phony tax and mandate scheme that Progressives spew for nothing more than garnering more power.
