Whatever you do don’t waste money on the sub $20 cheapies. Pure junk.

I've gone through a few pairs in the $30-40 range. They worked great. For a while.

I've been using Anker Life P3s for a while and like them so much that when I lost one of my earbuds (didn't set up the "find my earbuds" prior, my fault), I purchased a 2nd set.  When my German shepherd ate that, I purchased a third.  Awesome sound, bass, microphone, active noise-canceling, and battery life.

Currently, all color options are on sale at Amazon ($49).   I have had many earbuds over the years and these have impressed me most, especially considering the price.

Knowing how careless I am with earbuds, I purchased their "budget" version (Anker P20i) that unlike the Life P3's lacks ANC, wireless charging and I believe has fewer microphones, they still have excellent sound quality (especially base) but perhaps not as good midrange.  Those sell for $19.

I can't say enough about Anker's Life P3s.  Two coworkers who have purchased P3s at my suggestion have made it a point to get back with me and rave over the unbelievable value.

That sounds like a great recommendation. Thanks.

Mayhaps your opinion on this is not as ubiquitous across "conservatives " as you think.

But even if it is, what level of disagreement or, dare I say, diversity,  are you willing to put up with to build a coalition to battle the societal forces you want to defeat?

Are you serious? You should be asking the boys at Twitchy. Or this Ben Zeisloft guy. They're the ones trying to kick each other out of the movement.

And, yeah, we all know that lots of conservatives are social liberals. We know, because they've been talking down to us and telling us to shut up for decades.

To answer your question, I think I'm like most social conservatives in my tolerance for social liberals in the GOP. I've voted for Donald Trump twice. I've watched my fair share of Dave Rubin videos. I have gay friends. (Not really) Look, we know we need allies. That's why you don't see many comments like Ben Z's. Per his bio, he used to write for the Daily Wire. Do you think they'd let him say that on their site?

I’ve used a few different earbuds from SoundPeats. Cheap, durable enough, and work fine. I’ve killed a few pairs by dropping them and stepping on them or my dog chewing on them.
JPMorgan settles with Epstein victims for $365 million, Gates' ties detailed

The bank's involvement with Epstein included facilitating approximately $1 billion in transactions linked to human trafficking, despite Epstein being a known sex offender. These financial ties were highlighted in the recently published book "Controligarchs: Exposing the Billionaire Class," which also delves into the connections between Epstein and various prominent individuals.

Among those mentioned is Bill Gates, co-founder of Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT) and a notable philanthropist. Gates's interactions with Epstein have been brought to light, including flying on Epstein's private jet and visiting his home multiple times. Their relationship reportedly began around 2011 during discussions about a global health investment fund with JPMorgan. This association was notably referenced during Gates's divorce proceedings in 2021.

I saw this the other day.  Meant to post it sooner.  Just another reminder that stuff was pretty widespread with quite a few people knowing about it.
The Roundtable / Re: I’m getting too old but hunting anyway

Didn’t see charby’s hunting thread for this year, so I’ll park this here.

Went hunting this morning but didn’t see anything. A friend came over to hunt the afternoon.  We kicked up two deer hiking out, but didn’t have a shot. Later I spotted a deer running across a ravine behind a bunch of trees, but again no shot.

I was looking across the ravine a while later when I saw a doe coming straight for me from the other side. She was downwind from me but didn’t act like she had any idea I was there. I figured meat was better than no meat so I started to raise my shotgun for what was rapidly becoming a very easy shot. About that time I saw a second deer following her. Figuring it might be a buck, I held fire and waited. Sure enough, I saw the antlers and shifted target. The doe had made it to the small creek at the bottom of the ravine - only about 15 feet from me - and suddenly she noticed me raising the shotgun. She spooked and the buck stopped with just his head and chest showing around a tree giving me a quartering to shot. I aimed at his chest just forward of his shoulder and fired. He turned, then he and the doe ran up the hill together and out of sight. He didn’t jump or act like I’m used to them reacting when I put a slug into them, but I was pretty sure of my shot.

I waited for my hunting buddy to make his way over from the field he had been sitting on. While I waited I broke a stick and pointed one piece toward where I shot at him and another piece toward a tree at the top of the hill where I lost sight of him. When my friend got there we hiked off to where I shot him but found no blood at all. Another not great sign, but again, it wasn’t that long of a shot and I felt pretty confident about it.

We made our way up toward the top of the hill, but still no blood. I looked around and immediately saw the deer’s body. His feet were pointing away from me and all I saw was the brown back. When I got to him, my friend pointed out another deer skull not 10 feet away from the body. Weird. In total he only ran 40 yards or so, mostly up the hill.

I hit him right where I intended, and the slug went through his shoulder, breaking bone, deviated to the side a bit and jellied a lung instead of the heart, then stopped just after the diaphragm without punching into any guts. We found the slug (with a fragment of bone still stuck in it) when gutting. Usually I get passthroughs because usually I get broadside shots, but I guess it is not likely when it hits a big bone and then goes through it longways. Without a through and through and with the lung shot I guess he didn’t start to bleed until he lay down to die. There was some blood around his mouth but nothing coming out of the bullet hole.

Fighting the setting sun, we gutted it then dragged it down another ravine and back up to my neighbor’s field and the neighbor picked us up with his Ranger.

Good sized buck. Would have been an eight point if not for both brow tines being broken off to sharp nubs.

I have been using Raycon ear buds.  They work well enough that I never had an issue with them.  I may need to try others just to compare.  People like Donut Operator used to have discount codes.  The model I am currently using is above your limit.

I bought these last May:

I'm by no means an expert on earbuds (or any other music reproducing objects), but I like these.  They held up during a TX summer (hot & humid) while I worked in the yard.  They were loud enough to hear over the riding mower & chainsaw, and the sound quality was more than adequate.  I would run out of juice before the batteries died.  I'd buy 'em again.

You probably ought to be a lot more worried about the groomers and pedos than about normal gays who go about their own lives. Many of whom who despise said groomers and pedos and the “LGBTQ movement” itself.

Homosexual sodomy is not normal in a healthy society.  You are accepting sexual morality that our American forebears would have been revolted by, and, in fact, was illegal in every state of the Union.

We have groomers and pedos coming of the woodwork because homosexual sodomy has become normalized first.

The left trashed heterosexual marriage with divorce and bastardy.  Then they normalized homosexual sodomy.  They have almost finished this with transvestitism.  Pedophilia or polygamy is next is my guess, but who knows?

"Conservatives" are making inroads in the culture war

You are more optimistic than I am.
