Episode 249 – Greta Thunberg, Joker, and Cable News Destroyed America

9/4/2019
More
It’s a tough week for current events commentary since the entire news cycle is consumed with Hurricane Dorian. The Bahamas got hit hard and it’s on the way up the East Coast and, as important as it is, the news acts like there’s nothing else at all going on anywhere. Greta Thunberg made her trip […]

Episode 248 – David Koch, Dave Chappelle, and Death Row Records

8/28/2019
More
David Koch passed away. Twitter did what Twitter does and lost their soul. Their comments about both of the Koch Brothers were borderline insane. We spend time discussing how this is representative of the current divisive nature in today’s politics. Many celebrated his death and many wished for his brother Charles to join him. We […]

Episode 246 – Clinton Body Count, Joe Biden, and Bulletproof Backpacks

8/14/2019
More
Jeffrey Epstein killed himself. Or did he? Was he suicided by someone that was scared about what he might say? Is he part of the Clinton Body Count? Or the Donald Trump Body Count? Some say that it’s a conspiracy theory that Bill Clinton and Hillary have had people that know things about them killed […]

Episode 245 – The Shootings, John Dillinger, and Yay We Banned Robocalls

8/7/2019
More
It’s a depressing time when we have one of these shootings. It’s especially disturbing to have more than one in an incredibly short period of time. Not only is the news depressing, the reaction from politicians and the media is depressing, too. No one seems to know how to handle it right or report on […]

Episode 243 – Mueller Again, Al Franken Again, and #MeToo Again

7/24/2019
More
Mueller is going to testify. Again. It’s his 89th time to testify in front of Congress. He has a history of being short in his answers to Congress and not providing them with any info that they don’t already know. We suspect it will be no different this time. Some news sources are talking about […]

Episode 242 – Peak Racism, Area 51, and Dropping the Kids Off at the Pool Car

7/17/2019
More
“The Squad” was busy attacking fellow democrats, but the “current occupant of the White House” found a way to draw attention from Democrats bashing Democrats and turn it into Democrats bashing Trump. He made some pretty clearly uninformed and racist comments, but continues to say that he doesn’t have a single racist bone in his […]

Happy Independence Day, Everybody! Olivia de Havilland one of the last (if not THE last) remaing actors from Gone with the Wind turned 103 years old. What a run!

Does anyone really pay attention to the expiration dates on food products? Best By. Sell By. Best if Used By. Use By. Does anyone pay close attention, or do they all just take a glance at the date on the package and just make a personal judgement? And what about nutritional information? Does anyone actually […]
