Remember, remember, the 5th of November … yup, it’s V for Vendetta time, again. Given the Friday the 13th attack in Paris and other recent developments, it seemed only appropriate to discuss one of the greatest movies of our time and the message it has for us, as citizens of a country that is slowly stripping away our freedoms.
This is Episode #15. Can you believe it? We almost manage to stay on a theme with this podcast. That theme was supposed to be consequences of poor judgment. Since I am the king of poor judgment, I can speak as an authority on the subject.
One of the silly assertions we didn’t have time to report in the podcast was that the Muslims blamed a recent earthquake on a group of young people who got naked on a mountaintop and “angered the gods”. They claimed the infidels who got naked on their beach more recently were likely to cause a tsunami. Now those are some serious consequences for some pretty frivolous and innocuous behavior.
Don’t miss the video trailer we recorded last night.
This episode is our reaction to the debacle at Spring Valley High School in which Deputy Ben Fields, the school resource officer, dragged a student from her chair and threw her to the floor for not responding quickly enough when he ordered her to get up.
This episode of police brutality started with a minor infraction on the part of a teenage student that got her teacher’s panties in a wad, causing him to call an administrator, who, in turn, called the resource officer, a.k.a. police deputy, who had to prove his manhood by manhandling a teenage girl. Fortunately, someone recorded it and made it available on social media.
Well, that was… something. The potentials for the 2016 Democratic Presidential nomination lined up last night like Ms. Hannigan’s orphans for a good ol’ fashioned whoopin’ delivered by Hannigan herself (Anderson Cooper) and the rest of the foster care bureaucracy, CNN. It’s certainly a hard-knock life for a Democrat these days. The Republicans have had two debates already, and Jim Webb didn’t get any time to speak at their debates either. Sanders hurls profanity, Chaffe has no clue what he votes on, O’Malley is too damn cheery for no good reason, and Hillary is as institutional and robotic as ever. Here’s our recap!

I’m pretty sure I have done more intros than just the Halloween episode, but Mr. Sound Guy says he does them all. Having not received a single comment at comments [at] lifeishardpodcast [dot] com, we speculate that maybe there’s a configuration problem, or the Russians have hacked our e-mail. Of course, we must discuss the 11.5 year old boy who got banged by his 20 year old babysitter, with the approval of his father, and the judge who presided over the case. As you might expect, all of the adult men thought the 11 year old was getting off (no pun intended) to a jolly good start and the child welfare people felt the babysitter got off too easily (45 seconds!). We discuss the details, and take a few minutes to discuss the recent shooting of an 8 year old girl by an 11 year old boy (warning: very disturbing story).
