There are threats, and there are imminent disasters, but can there be imminent threats? What happens when a driverless car gets stopped by police? What does dark matter look like? These questions and more are discussed in this week’s episode.
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.
The holidays are looming closer. It’s November 14, so December 25 is imminent. Since we like to stay on the bleeding edge, we’re getting the jump on the winter holiday season of consumerism. We weigh in on the Starbucks scandal regarding their Christmas denial.
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, we did it, again, but there was so much to discuss, we weren’t able to fit it all in. Those Republicans really put on a good show, and Carly even left us with a teaser of an impending cat fight between her and Hillary.
One of the things we didn’t get to was Jeb Bush’s support of regulating Fantasy Football. Chris Christie went on the record to say that the government should stay the hell out of Fantasy Football. I’m with Christie.
Our biggest complaint was the CNBC capitalized on the debate by not letting anyone view it without a cable subscription, and they sold advertising at a rate of $30,000,000/hour. Don’t you wish you could make that?
We all know things get a little crazy at times, but what about when you break up with your girlfriend and she maliciously chews on your precious genitals? When that happens, it’s time for a PBS documentary. In this case, PBS stands for “please bite scrotum”. I’m not sure why anyone would want that, but sometimes nothing makes any sense. This may be one of those times.
Mr. Monday joins us by telephone for this episode, which just happens to be episode #12. That’s not to say it was the 12th episode we recorded. That would be way too logical for this production.
This episode (#11) was recorded a while back. I’m not sure, but I think we decided to can it, because the news stories were out-of-date, but I revived it because it’s a pretty good episode. We discuss things like rescuing puppies that can’t swim, and the proliferation/liberalization of bacon. As everyone knows, anything with puppies in it has to be good, and putting bacon on top just makes it better! You can download and listen, or listen/like/subscribe on Youtube.
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!
