Episode 103 – The One That’s Two Days Late


About This Episode


In this SPOILER filled episode for almost every popular television show in recent memory: Impeachment whispers are blowing around the airs of DC almost as often as the rumors that Corey Booker is gay. Now it seems as though Trump is hoping for impeachment, according to Nancy Pelosi, as she gets upset about Trumps latest temper tantrum. All of the abortion debates and impeachment talks are overshadowing the cloak of fear we should all be feeling about the battle over free speech that is soon going to begin. Tune in tonight for a pantsless episode of Muddied Waters of Freedom.

and then meet us and then me and the new
06:30
and then Jason Lyon again and Jason Lyon
06:32

to be a recurring seems to be an issue

06:38
I kept having guests that said yeah and
06:43
then couldn’t make it at the last minute
06:44

06:48
we both fell off the map on Tuesday so
06:51
welcome to the show guys welcome to the
06:54
show yeah Tuesday I was like it was my
07:00
first day off in like two weeks and I
07:03
hope I woke up and was like I’m gonna
07:05
get all the stuff done for the show
07:07
early get prepared and I was like but
07:10
first I’m gonna sit down and have this
07:12
cup of coffee and watch one episode of
07:14
television one episode later next one I
07:20
knew it was 8 o’clock and I was still
07:24
holding the coffee cup and I was like I
07:27
wonder if we’re doing a show today
07:30
where am i what even happened it and I
07:33
was equally oblivious that day too so we
07:36
were both and we were in good
07:38
we’re in good company with each other
07:40
unknowingly we were both in a good
07:42
company of completely ignoring the other
07:44
purse on the day of the show so welcome
07:48
to the show guys welcome to a very
07:49
special pantsless episode is it as
07:53
powerful we s we tell people right we
07:57
have to tell people I guess so I mean I
08:01
guess that makes it more otherwise you
08:04
know it doesn’t mean anything to just
08:06
put it in YouTube it loses its power
08:08
really does like just to put it in a
08:10
description on YouTube doesn’t really
08:11
mean anything there enough the fact that
08:13
we’re saying it’s a pantsless episode
08:15
I hate listen I’m here with you yeah so
08:21
we’re doing this so guys just trying to
08:23
put it out of your head and especially
08:26
you listening on the various podcasting
08:29
apps that you you would listen to this
08:32
on the fact that we don’t have pants on
08:37
does not make us any less valid in our
08:41
opinions or any less deserving of love
08:44
and empathy
08:45
it’s pantsless Thursday answers Thursday
08:48
and moving forward if we ever do a
08:51
episode of the muddy waters of freedom
08:53
on a Thursday rest assured that we will
08:56
be doing it
08:57
sans pantalones I don’t know pants in
09:00
latin of pantalones in spanish yes and
09:06
rest assured that 90% of the episodes of
09:09
the writer’s block on thursdays are done
09:12
panceliss by at least one of the people
09:14
I cannot say anything for the other
09:15
person for the guests on that shows it
09:18
was at least 50% pants off 50% pants off
09:21
at a minimum Shane Sweeney was on last
09:25
week so there’s probably a hundred
09:27
percent pants I don’t know does he I
09:30
don’t think she never wears never wears
09:32
pants I don’t think he does I don’t
09:34
think he’s a pants when you have a beers
09:37
and that majestic you don’t need to wear
09:40
pants because all eyes are on the beer
09:42
and it covers your genitalia as well so
09:45
if there’s a there’s a there’s a you
09:48
know there’s a dual dynamic they’re one
09:50
they’re looking at your beer
09:51
– it’s all they can see anyway so true
09:55
so that’s good so that’s yeah so
10:00
speaking of awkward exchanges pants well
10:05
yeah I guess pantsless exchanges during
10:07
a what should have been another wise
10:10
nice get-together Donald Trump recently
10:14
met with congressional Democrats and
10:17
said that he s stormed out of a meeting
10:20
said that he was not going to negotiate
10:21
any more with him on infrastructure
10:24
until they drop their investigations of
10:27
him and then apparently Matt I guess he
10:30
then you know more about this I mean he
10:31
then went out for a thought unquote
10:34
impromptu so he doesn’t mean where was
10:38
this kid yeah so the meeting was a
10:40
scheduled meeting with Nancy Pelosi and
10:44
other Democratic leaders of the house
10:45
and while they were in the meeting Trump
10:50
apparently got fed up with the
10:51
negotiations and he stands up here we
10:55
are not we’re not having any more
10:57
negotiations until all crimes against me
11:00
have been dropped and he did I can’t
11:02
negotiate with you anymore he walks out
11:04
and he immediately goes to a press
11:07
conference in order to talk about the
11:09
negotiation right and that and as though
11:13
all of this was completely impromptu and
11:15
none of it was staged even a little bit
11:18
he already had placards with the
11:21
statistics just laying around just
11:23
laying around this lying around you know
11:25
just in case he would ever need them for
11:27
any reason for know when you might on
11:28
the Mueller report and all the
11:31
investigations that have been going on
11:33
for him
11:33
Oh real quick hey thanks as I always do
11:38
it I’m like crap crap anyway go ahead
11:42
thanks for the comment and allow me to
11:45
thank first and foremost Kroger this
11:48
delicious purified drinking water that I
11:50
drink on this in most episodes of things
11:52
that I’m on bula vinaka a little bit not
11:55
good
11:56
we’re 48 hours we are now 40 48 and a
11:59
half hours late to do that that’s right
12:02
so okay so okay so yeah so he
12:05
his he had his press conference he’s
12:07
he’s and what was on these plaques like
12:11
stats about the investigation about the
12:14
investigation how much the investigation
12:16
cost how much the investigation or how
12:18
long the investigation took right stuff
12:21
like that stuff we already know as it
12:26
said no collusion no obstruction things
12:28
like you know whatever and this was like
12:30
a rally when people are just holding up
12:32
these signs well it’s just like he had
12:35
them in front of his podium and you know
12:37
the Democrats wanna the Democrats wanna
12:40
I was just watching
12:43
Crowder’s livestream where he was what’s
12:46
his name Bernie and I keep kind of going
12:48
into a Bernie voice more than he was
12:53
like yeah we uh
12:53
he’s like the Democrats want to
12:55
negotiate but I don’t feel comfortable
12:57
negotiating them while they’re going on
13:01
when these investigations right I’m just
13:04
not going to negotiate anymore and I the
13:07
political move of a six-year-old of I’m
13:10
just going to take my yeah and I and I’m
13:13
I there must be because Andrew Jackson
13:16
was in many ways equally petty and and
13:20
and full of himself at times too I
13:22
wonder if there’s a precedent where like
13:25
a sitting president has said hey guys if
13:28
you know this you can you can comment in
13:29
the comments and let us know if there’s
13:31
a precedent as to like a president
13:33
saying drop the negotiation drop the
13:37
investigation of me or you know we’re
13:38
not gonna get anything done
13:40
maybe Nixon did that I I can’t see him
13:43
having the well no actually I couldn’t
13:44
see Nixon having the hot spot to do that
13:46
but I I’m curious if that’s if that’s
13:48
happen oh that wasn’t Andrew Jackson
13:51
that was injured Johnson no no I don’t
13:55
mean investigation wise I just mean in
13:57
terms of like telling people like no I’m
13:59
not gonna do that like when the Supreme
14:01
Court would rule that he couldn’t do
14:03
things and he’d do them anyway and tell
14:05
them and like say now come and get me or
14:07
whatever and there was nothing they
14:08
could do because he’s the president
14:10
right so um yeah I know it’s that’s uh
14:13
that’s an interesting thing so in
14:16
between Boomer tweeting at Iran
14:18
that you know he’s gonna take them out
14:20
if they ever threaten us again um
14:22
he’s also I guess making similar threats
14:25
to congressional Democrats regarding
14:27
infrastructure now as someone market as
14:31
an anarchist um I have the counter on me
14:36
on on my house II that’s your that’s I
14:38
can’t
14:39
I’m not hold responsible for what what
14:41
you do when you’re in but as an
14:42
anarchist second time I’m fine with the
14:46
government not building roads twenty two
14:49
minutes that sounds about right
14:51
for of that being music um so for that
14:56
doesn’t even we can’t say anything but
14:59
uh yeah I have no problem with um total
15:04
gridlock actually not just on roads I
15:06
have no problem with Trump saying I’m
15:09
not going to do anything with you until
15:15
you drop these investigations and I’m
15:16
equally have no problem with Democrats
15:18
saying we’re not going to drop this in
15:21
these investigations and if this led to
15:23
yet another government shutdown that
15:25
never ended I’d be fine with that as
15:27
well that’s actually this is the the
15:29
direction I want and that’s what so the
15:33
the article that I read the title said
15:37
no negotiating on new legislation until
15:39
all charges are dropped or all
15:42
investigations are right all right and I
15:44
was very excited about this super
15:48
excited about this I was like this is
15:50
like a shutdown without a show that a
15:52
shutdown without anyone going like oh
15:53
the children starving in the death
15:56
people who fondled my genitals are now
16:00
not getting paid at the airport that was
16:03
great League I was very excited about
16:08
this because most people probably
16:09
wouldn’t care maybe just feel like well
16:12
now everybody’s getting there the
16:13
government people are getting their
16:14
paychecks that we as taxpayers are
16:17
giving them and even if we don’t like
16:19
what they do right and don’t want to pay
16:22
yeah yeah National Endowment for the
16:24
Arts definitely needs my 32 cents right
16:27
exactly but so I was like this is this
16:31
is perfect and then I
16:32
I read the article it said no more no
16:36
more negotiations on monetary structure
16:38
yeah yeah well that’s just not the same
16:42
that’s not the same that’s a bit of
16:44
clickbait you gave me it’s a horse of a
16:46
different color listen it I mean again
16:49
mow roads we got to have more roads and
16:52
I think that I just want to see how long
16:56
this kind of stuff goes on because it’s
16:57
not gonna just be infrastructure that’s
16:59
just what they’re talking about now
17:01
right like I mean it’s not like he’s
17:03
gonna say all right well I’ll negotiate
17:05
with you on health care right but not on
17:11
infrastructure that’s where I draw the
17:13
line yeah the only thing that right now
17:17
it appears that he is willing to
17:19
negotiate on is Iran and that just
17:25
appears to be it so following following
17:28
this press conference speaker Speaker of
17:31
the House the the old drunk Nancy Pelosi
17:36
yeah what it’s you’ll have to explain
17:38
that because I’ve keep hearing
17:40
references to her being drunk and I
17:41
don’t trump’s been calling her drunk on
17:45
Twitter just out of just calling her
17:47
drunk I think it’s because of her
17:50
slurring and everything when she’s like
17:52
doing her press conferences and she
17:54
starts slurring and forgetting words
17:55
personally I think she’s having many
17:57
strokes but he’s been calling her an old
18:01
drunk and it’s very catchy if she’s also
18:03
like 900 years old like this is actually
18:07
a question I don’t know the answer to I
18:09
think I have to look she’s not whatever
18:12
her ages it isn’t Beijing well right but
18:17
who is older is it her Biden Bernie or
18:19
Trump so Google already know I literally
18:22
it has all the people you just mentioned
18:27
she’s 79 okay Bernie 77 Biden is 76 oh
18:34
that’s not Trump hold on Trump
18:36
he’s like 72 or something 72 I think
18:39
yeah he’s 72 so he’s the kid there he’s
18:42
a kid
18:45
whippersnapper snap
18:46
of DC with congressional leadership um
18:50
yes so she’s I mean god bless you no
18:54
listen if I if I’m 79 I’m still out
18:56
there slurring around saying stuffed and
18:58
you know that’s probably just as well as
19:00
probably as well as I could hope for
19:01
um but yeah so I so she’s drunk and and
19:06
she had she had a closed-door meeting
19:08
with some House Democrats about
19:10
impeachment and in it she said now is
19:14
not the time for impeachment but it
19:16
could be coming because Trump is just
19:17
being all trumpian and not you know
19:20
telling people not to show up for their
19:23
subpoenas and the investigations and
19:25
people just aren’t aren’t being there
19:27
and no this is Trump obstructing justice
19:29
right and okay whatever and she said
19:34
that a villainous Trump referred to him
19:38
as villainous Trump is hoping for
19:43
impeachment
19:45
because what every president wants the
19:48
hope that old yarn you know the the two
19:52
who have been impeached probably claim
19:54
that to be the highlight of their
19:56
presidencies just so but Trump wants
20:00
impeachment so the Senate can vindicate
20:01
him I mean that’s a I mean that would be
20:09
for DHS if you know when we talk about
20:11
for DHS that would be so also the
20:15
ramblings of a drunk woman uh I was
20:17
gonna say also the ramblings of a drunk
20:18
woman but here’s the thing I mean
20:20
there’s a little shred of truth to that
20:22
because he’s not going to get removed
20:25
the house could absolutely vote to
20:27
impeach him but short of him doing
20:29
something else really horrific um or
20:33
horrific in their eyes I think what the
20:35
government does every day is horrific
20:36
but short of him doing something else
20:38
that would get most Republicans or at
20:41
least half of Republicans to sign on
20:44
it’s Republicans and cent in the Senate
20:47
to sign on to having him removed she’s
20:51
not gonna get removed
20:52
he might get impeached he might the
20:53
impeachment trial might start that’s
20:55
happened before but in order for him to
20:57
be the first president removed from an
20:59
impeachment trial
21:00
you would have to get you have to get 67
21:03
votes in the Senate and that has to
21:07
include and right now the Republicans
21:08
control the Senate
21:10
they have 153 654 they they have the
21:15
majority so you’ve got a quite an uphill
21:18
climb so it listens it works very good
21:21
for Clinton yeah it worked for Clinton
21:25
Democrats came out and destroyed and
21:27
yeah yeah so I mean it really kind of
21:31
would be I don’t know with previous
21:36
impeachments if they happen during
21:37
election years or how that works but um
21:41
so I mean I I could see that working
21:43
really well for him with Andrew Johnson
21:46
it happens I believe in an election year
21:53
okay and this the Senate didn’t convict
21:56
right did he did he get reelected no
22:00
right well so that I mean what he did
22:06
I’ll admit what Andrew Johnson did to
22:09
get impeached was worthy of impeachment
22:14
he like fired everybody well this is
22:18
well the Congress was on break I kind of
22:23
like that though but I’m also not so but
22:27
you’re a Nana right yeah so I’m not
22:29
really the target demo for for good
22:32
decisions in government yeah I don’t I
22:36
don’t I don’t think he actually wants to
22:39
be impeached drunk lady I don’t think so
22:41
but I I do think if they did actually
22:44
move to impeach him against the backdrop
22:46
of the economy doing pretty well and and
22:55
Americans now being in this fear cycle
22:57
because Iran
22:59
by the way guys Iran this isn’t in the
23:01
show notes but Iran has made some
23:02
incredibly aggressive move recently they
23:05
have their country right next to our
23:07
aircraft carriers and I mean
23:13
people say Islam is peaceful and yet all
23:17
these Muslims keep putting their
23:18
countries next to our sometimes they put
23:22
their countries right on our bases and
23:24
and and and and right next to our
23:27
aircraft carriers and so you know
23:30
peaceful religion huh this is why we get
23:35
the recommendations that we do
23:39

26:51
16 17 counts of espionage for releasing
26:56
information that was given to him as a
27:01
reporter that is now considered
27:05
espionage yes because the information
27:08
was incredibly damning and embarrassing
27:11
to the government that is now espionage
27:16
now this is especially interesting
27:20
because right now he’s fighting
27:21
extradition he’s still in London he’s
27:23
fighting yesterday oh he’s not here yet
27:24
well he’s gotta go over to Sweden or
27:29
whatever oh that’s right for the rape
27:30
thing yeah so he’s got to go there first
27:34
and then after that trial so right now
27:36
he’s fighting extradition he’s still
27:37
over in London so he’s got the initial
27:41
charges against him that the US file and
27:45
then now he and it’s alleged that he and
27:52
Chelsea Manning conspired together to
27:55
release all of this damning information
27:58
on the US government having to do with
28:01
what many of us would refer to as war
28:05
crimes and the u.s. didn’t like that so
28:10
they were saying that’s it you know
28:12
we’re gonna charge him with everything
28:13
so they’re getting him on on espionage
28:16
laws and I don’t believe he is an
28:19
American citizen no no he’s not yeah I
28:24
don’t like he’s not an American citizen
28:26
oh he’s Australian
28:28
is he he’s Australian yes question mark
28:34
I thought he was Austrian I don’t know
28:40
why I thought that Australian okay close
28:44
you were only one two letters off yeah
28:50
so he’s Australian and he apparently is
28:56
a terrible houseguest if he stays at
28:58
your Embassy non-stop for seven years
29:01
but he has been indicted on 17 counts of
29:07
espionage and it is ramping up to be the
29:13
pivotal pivotal pivotal I wish I did
29:17
better notes this week so I’m not trying
29:19
to pull all this just right out of my
29:20
head it is – oh yeah no it is pivotal
29:23
pivotal pivotal free speech fight of
29:29
this generation yeah the biggest free
29:33
speech fight since fuck the police of
29:38
our generation yes right yes I mean so
29:43
again let’s talk about what he actually
29:45
did someone gave him information he as a
29:53
essentially a reporter
29:55
release that information not to an enemy
29:59
government and kept it secret and you
30:01
know what he released it to everyone on
30:04
earth for free and said hey you should
30:09
probably know this is being done by the
30:11
most powerful government on earth and it
30:14
was basically just an info dump arm you
30:19
so the the the precedent this would set
30:23
is that you can charge not just charge a
30:26
reporter for releasing information that
30:27
was leaked to them but a foreign
30:29
reporter so now the precedent here is
30:32
that now American reporters who are
30:36
reporting international news in
30:38
repressive dictatorships where
30:39
information is not allowed to be shared
30:42
they can’t share that stuff without
30:46
risking you know having to and there
30:49
would be a lot of precedent there for
30:51
you know those governments to push the
30:53
US government to arrest them and
30:55
extradite them to that country because
30:58
they’d say hey look when someone
30:59
released your info a reporter released
31:01
your info you demand an extradition and
31:04
charge them an espionage so we’re gonna
31:05
do that too and the US government would
31:08
have to face being considered
31:10
hypocritical which you know that never
31:13
happens but they’d have time it would be
31:15
hypocritical for them not to say okay
31:16
yeah I guess we have to release you know
31:18
US reporters to you and you know that’s
31:21
pretty much the end of reporting at
31:23
least in in in repressive countries with
31:25
you know countries with repressive
31:27
governments where they can’t you know if
31:30
you don’t have the if you don’t have
31:32
permission from that government to share
31:34
it then there’s no story and nothing you
31:37
know it’s just it’s a terrible terrible
31:39
precedent and it’s all entirely because
31:41
the government was embarrassed by the
31:44
the information that that was leaked and
31:46
information that we all should have
31:47
known so and so what is the difference
31:52
between okay besides the very very very
31:57
obvious differences between Chelsea
32:01
Manning and mark felt
32:06
who is deep throat for anybody who
32:09
doesn’t know besides the glaring obvious
32:13
difference between these two people
32:15
right what’s the difference that they
32:18
did both of them government workers both
32:21
of them knew about something that the
32:23
government was doing that they felt was
32:25
immoral both of them found a reporter
32:30
willing to report it and Mark felt he
32:37
found too my thighs are sticking to my
32:40
leather pants Thursday but he thought he
32:50
found two he found Woodward and
32:51
Bernstein and they reported so what
32:54
makes Woodward and Bernstein any
32:56
different than Julian Assange just like
32:57
what makes Chelsea Manning any different
32:58
but but from mark felt the biggest
33:02
difference I can see is that what deep
33:05
throat was releasing wasn’t resulting in
33:09
the deaths of many many many people like
33:12
it was a report and important thing that
33:14
was being released but no one was dying
33:15
and you know this was a people were
33:20
being killed and they were being killed
33:22
under extensively under against the you
33:25
know rules and conventions that the the
33:27
US military is has set forth for itself
33:29
so that’s the big one there um there
33:34
isn’t it I mean in terms of what they
33:36
actually did there isn’t a difference
33:37
they released information that was
33:39
leaked to them and read espionage is an
33:43
active so espionage and I don’t know how
33:46
the laws are written but I can just tell
33:48
you from like a dictionary definition
33:50
standpoint espionage is it isn’t is not
33:52
a passive is it’s not a passive Act
33:54
espionage is not someone tells me
33:56
something and I go oh man
33:58
I better tell someone I better tell the
34:00
entire world I better release that to
34:02
the entire world espionage is like i
34:04
hack government computers or I you know
34:08
you know dress up like a government
34:10
worker and you know infiltrate their
34:12
systems or whatever like you know I I’m
34:14
actually actively pushing in to try to
34:17
get information and seek information if
34:19
someone comes to me
34:20
says like you said it would have to it
34:22
would mean that Woodward and Byrd Steve
34:23
committed espionage um it just said it’s
34:26
it’s it’s just an absolutely and mean
34:28
that Mark felt should have gone to
34:32
prison for 18 years yeah
34:34
or whatever I don’t know what you’ll see
34:36
yeah and and and now she’s back in jail
34:38
um because uh she refused to UM she you
34:43
know narc she’s refusing to narc and
34:45
give her sources I mean this is
34:46
something she’s already been charged
34:48
convicted and imprisoned for and I know
34:52
a lot of our may be more conservative
34:56
leaning listeners will say things like
35:00
oh well you know it was classified and
35:03
it was you know it was it was you know
35:06
they did it illegally well it’s usually
35:08
illegal to point out that the
35:10
government’s doing something bad like
35:12
that’s not that’s not it’s not often
35:14
that that that that intersects with a
35:17
legal way to to release it it may or may
35:20
not have been classified but what they
35:23
were doing was illegal since we’re
35:25
saying illegal what they were doing was
35:27
illegal and so it was illegal to say
35:29
that what they were doing was illegal I
35:31
thought that there were we serve
35:32
whistleblower protection laws but I
35:34
don’t know how those work but apparently
35:36
they’re not much good because you disel
35:38
blow I think there are whistleblower
35:41
protection laws but they are not for
35:45
people like in the military I don’t
35:47
think you have them I think that they go
35:50
for corporations or the Department of
35:53
Agriculture or something like that that
35:54
is a far less consequence than the
35:57
military right who has nuclear weapons
36:01
as our future president Erick’s well
36:04
well is is quick to point out so because
36:09
of the chain of command in the military
36:11
going outside of the chain of command is
36:13
enough to get yourself kicked out right
36:16
since Chelsea by giving this information
36:21
to somebody not in her chain of command
36:24
right gave it you know she gave it to
36:26
Julian assumably she gave it to Julian
36:29
not somebody else who gave it but she
36:32
gave it to Julian she went outside
36:33
the chain of command which means that
36:35
she broke chain of command which is now
36:36
enough for her to get removed from
36:38
military and imprisoned so I don’t know
36:44
if whistleblower protection actually I
36:47
don’t think it’s a law that stands in
36:50
the military no clearly not or if it
36:52
does they ignore it yeah I mean no no I
36:54
get it and and and I guess my point is
36:56
that very rarely does an incredible
37:01
thing about the government doing
37:03
terrible things get released and it not
37:06
be illegal for them to have done that
37:08
I mean they’ve sort of pretend it’s you
37:10
know it’s sort of like we’re gonna do
37:11
this terrible thing and you’re all
37:12
forbidden from telling anyone of course
37:14
that’s what they do so for people to go
37:18
oh well you know they did it illegally
37:20
yeah that’s how that works
37:22
we wouldn’t know all the terrible things
37:24
about government we wouldn’t know that
37:26
the government was a you know spying on
37:29
it had a database of every single phone
37:31
call text message and email that you
37:35
know any Americans ever made we wouldn’t
37:37
know that if it hadn’t been leaked we
37:38
could suspect it but we wouldn’t
37:40
actually know that so it’s you know it’s
37:43
a huge problem that you know people that
37:45
say that their liberty you know it’s one
37:47
thing if you don’t if you don’t they’re
37:49
pointing people out there they’re like I
37:50
don’t care about liberty or property or
37:51
privacy or any of that you know I just
37:53
want the government to take care of me
37:54
and you know the common good and all
37:56
that great fine to say that you are you
37:59
know you want a small limited government
38:01
but you want to government that will you
38:04
know imprison anyone who releases the
38:07
fact that they’re murdering people
38:10
that’s not going to result in a small
38:12
limited government that’s going to
38:14
result in precisely the government that
38:15
we have and and it’s just crazy and like
38:18
they’ll say oh and then the left doesn’t
38:20
like Assange because WikiLeaks released
38:23
um the the emails that you know helped
38:27
helped although I still think she would
38:30
have lost actually I don’t know if I
38:32
think she would have lost that may have
38:34
just just helped seal the deal for Trump
38:39
getting election elected because he ich
38:41
by in states like Wisconsin and
38:44
Pennsylvania and Michigan
38:46
I don’t I want to say I don’t think that
38:50
it it would have made a difference but
38:51
in their mind in their whole Russian
38:54
collusion narrative that they’ve created
38:55
for why America said no to Hillary
38:57
Clinton or at least the enough of the
39:00
state said no to Hillary Clinton that
39:02
she didn’t win in part of that narrative
39:04
Julian Assange is one of the main
39:06
villains so there’s no love loss there
39:08
so he just doesn’t have a lot of friends
39:10
here um but it’s it’s sad because like
39:12
if we were to have a limited government
39:16
it would require that government well it
39:19
would require a lot of things that I
39:21
wouldn’t say on the air but it would
39:24
acquire a it would require a government
39:27
that routinely has stuff leaked so that
39:32
they can’t set when they try to get too
39:34
big they get checked and and you know
39:36
someone says no you’ve been doing this
39:39
and this is terrible and everyone should
39:40
know and the and the voters respond not
39:42
by going oh my gosh I can’t believe you
39:44
released that but by saying holy crap I
39:46
can’t believe that you’re doing this
39:47
what the hell is wrong with you and and
39:49
that’s what would release it so the
39:51
whole the whole thing is is absolutely
39:53
terrible
39:56
so yeah the entire situation is awful
39:59
and again I’m just I’m gonna make a call
40:03
out to you know anybody who watches this
40:05
thing babies who listen to us if you’ve
40:07
got a really good story that you’re
40:08
afraid might land you in jail we’ll
40:10
report it I didn’t check that spike
40:15
beforehand but I’m certain he’s okay
40:16
yeah I know we will definitely report it
40:18
we will report it will say it right here
40:21
on the air and we’ll promote the crap
40:24
out of it
40:25
just because word journalists ish you
40:32
know we’re part of that new media or
40:35
media adjacent yeah yeah Jason so you
40:39
know if you have something and you’re
40:41
like oh I can’t report this because you
40:43
know I may get in trouble tell us and
40:47
well fact check it yeah we’re not
40:48
releasing hot takes you know the
40:51
government as a Martian rate base or
40:53
whatever well you know you know what if
40:55
you if you if a government employee
40:58
tells us that the government
41:00
has Martian rape bases right I will
41:05
probably run with that I’m just gonna go
41:08
with it I’m gonna go with that yeah
41:10
those crazy Martian esteemed Martian
41:13
rate basis Alex Jones was right that’s
41:17
why he’s not on Facebook
41:22
anyway that’s why Alex Jones is on
41:24
infowars.com and that’s essentially it
41:28
at this play um so uh I put this note in
41:34
okay
41:35
so speak speaking of I hate him there’s
41:38
literally no there is no segue speaking
41:44
of Donald Trump has suspended steel and
41:50
aluminum tariffs from Canada and Mexico
41:54
in his ongoing negotiation with him with
41:58
with them to try to get this this new
42:01
version of NAFTA I always forget what
42:03
it’s called a past in the in the various
42:06
in in the US Congress and in the
42:08
Canadian and Mexican legislature there’s
42:11
been no movement on it at all
42:13
he has suspended the steel and aluminum
42:16
tariffs he’s also delayed automobile
42:18
tariffs from Europe and Japan for six
42:21
months and the people that are you know
42:24
kind of experts in the in you know
42:27
economics and I I would tend to agree
42:29
with them he’s feeling the heat of this
42:31
you know easy trade war that can be
42:33
easily won as he said I I I’m resisting
42:40
the urge to do the same tariffs grant
42:42
that I do on every show but suffice it
42:45
to say that I will say this this is a
42:49
new one trade protectionism is a idea
42:54
that is oddly popular among Republicans
42:58
it’s an idea that taxes should be
43:01
imposed on consumers American consumers
43:04
to combat income inequality that’s in it
43:10
oh and Bernie said oh it’s very popular
43:12
in the in the
43:14
I guess I would call it the hard left at
43:17
the old left most of the left that is
43:20
against trade protectionism right now
43:21
they’re against it because Donald Trump
43:23
is in favor of it but it actually is a
43:26
left-wing policy trade protectionism
43:29
comes from the idea that this zero-sum
43:33
idea that you know if this country is
43:35
doing if people if part trading people
43:37
in this country are doing well we must
43:39
therefore be doing poorly and if you
43:41
look at the arguments they are all
43:42
exactly the same as the income
43:44
inequality arguments they’ll say this is
43:46
hurting our manufacturers US
43:49
manufacturing is at an all-time high
43:50
this is hurting our exports US imports
43:54
exports are at an all-time high
43:57
exports of manufacturing are growing and
43:59
have been growing in the u.s. pretty
44:01
steadily I mean there’s been some dips
44:03
during times that the rest of the
44:04
economy was dipping but for the most
44:06
part it has been growing it has
44:08
continued to grow what they’re really
44:09
saying is that they’re upset that
44:11
China’s exports are growing faster well
44:14
that’s like when people say yeah we’re
44:15
all doing better but Jeff Bezos is
44:18
richer than me so he should be taxed to
44:20
offset that and and give me some of that
44:22
because it’s not fair that he’s getting
44:24
richer faster than me China is getting
44:26
richer faster because they’re providing
44:27
a better product for less money and
44:29
because there’s fewer impositions
44:33
ironically from a communist government a
44:35
communist government is taxing and
44:37
regulating their exporters less than our
44:40
government is ours there’s a lesson
44:41
there and that’s you know if you want to
44:44
be more competitive push your government
44:47
to reduce the taxes and regulations that
44:49
you can be more competitive you should
44:51
be able to sell your product for less
44:53
than it costs someone on the other side
44:56
of the planet to make it and ship it all
44:58
the way over here it should definitely
45:00
cost less for you to do it and ship it
45:03
10 miles away or sell it in your store
45:06
the reason it’s not is because of taxes
45:08
and regulations so get rid of those but
45:11
anyway so so our easy to win a trade
45:17
were apparently not so easy to win now
45:20
and the trade word that’s been going it
45:22
like when you have
45:26
some of the greatest economic minds who
45:29
have ever lived and Paul Krugman and
45:34
Paul Krugman and Keynes and Keane even
45:38
Kings Freeman that free trade is best
45:42
for the economy like you get Rothbard
45:47
you get milk you get everybody everybody
45:53
every economist ever it appears says
45:57
free trade is great for the economy yeah
46:00
and then you get Donald Trump and Bernie
46:04
Sanders who loud and proud talk about
46:10
free trade is bad it’s hurting American
46:13
workers just no it’s not yeah there
46:16
isn’t anyone in the economic sphere in
46:19
in left or right because I mean there’s
46:21
all sorts of disagreements in in the
46:23
world of economics and an economic
46:26
thought um on you know the best you know
46:28
when it comes to taxes when it comes to
46:31
whether centrally planned economies are
46:33
better than you know market dictated
46:35
economies and things like that where
46:38
there seems to be almost near it pretty
46:39
much as close to unanimity as you can
46:41
get you know across the the panoply of
46:47
economists and not just now but ever
46:50
they all agree that the less restriction
46:52
there is on trade the better the only
46:55
people that you will find that you could
46:56
even fix your lips to consider an
46:59
economist who was our against free trade
47:02
our Marxists those are the and I don’t
47:05
consider Marxist to be economists I
47:06
think that Marxist are trying to apply
47:09
their their their you know hackneyed
47:12
political philosophy into the world of
47:14
economics and it applies just as poorly
47:16
there as it does into politics but the
47:18
only people you could find that
47:19
quote-unquote economists that would say
47:21
that free speech is bad or poor or free
47:25
speech or the say that free trade is bad
47:27
are the same people that think you
47:29
shouldn’t be allowed to own anything
47:30
right so is this what we’re doing yes is
47:34
the answer that this is what we’re doing
47:36
and it’s just creates it’s it’s a a lot
47:40
of
47:40
one there but uh but yeah so I mean it’s
47:43
obvious that that that the the trade war
47:47
is very very winnable any minute now
47:49

53:14
extends anchored on FM guys speaking of
53:19
minimum listenership just in a mash a
53:23
mash uh a mash a mash I think it’s a man
53:28
a man I think it’s a matter he told his
53:31
minimum listenership that he he has
53:35
called did he call for Trump to be
53:36
impeach or did he just say that the
53:38
report proved I had all 20 tweets
53:42
because he went on a Twitter storm it
53:44
yeah and then Trump went on a counter
53:48
Twitter storm one of our listeners just
53:52
said speaking of muddied waters bling
53:54
you can own your very own shirts which
53:58
are available on Amazon if you search oh
54:00
yeah muddied watered muddied waters
54:04
clothing you can find multiple muddied
54:07
water shirts including life my I think
54:10
my favorite so far is the and we’ve
54:14
gotten some some purchases of it is the
54:16
words the the the the it work says the F
54:20
in foo
54:21
food is for communism who dfn communism
54:25
is for food oh that makes way more sense
54:29
yeah cause people would say I don’t
54:33
think that’s true the effing communism
54:34
is for food I’m the one who made that up
54:36
and I didn’t say it right so get the
54:39
shirt so that you know how it said yeah
54:41
money while there’s water is clothing
54:43
don’t complain about Amazon chiweenie
54:45
Amazon and change it from the inside
54:47
exactly Amazon is like the Republican
54:52
Party complain about it join it from the
54:54
inside that’s right so yeah some of the
54:58
stuff they’ve let me post I’ve been
55:00
really shocked I could Dave we are
55:02
changing Amazon from the inside and
55:04
speaking of joining and changing from
55:06
the inside just in a mash has tried to
55:11
change it from the inside he’s trying to
55:14
less affect than we have had with uh
55:17
before readings many many people on the
55:20
right are hating on Justin Amash yes
55:23
right now right for what I’m about to
55:25
read yeah now Justin Amash is probably
55:29
the most Liberty friendly member of
55:33
Congress yeah easily I think he’s got
55:38
something like a 92% rating from Liberty
55:43
AG advocacy groups which if anybody’s
55:47
beating him it’s Thomas massive I was
55:49
gonna say I was thinking him and Massey
55:51
are probably neck-and-neck there but the
55:53
bottom line is that if you had a
55:55
Congress of Representatives and a Senate
55:58
that were dominated by people who
56:03
thought like Justin Amash we’d actually
56:05
have a small limited government right so
56:09
if that’s what you say you want this is
56:12
who you should be supporting and not the
56:15
guy who’s not the president who’s added
56:17
three trillion dollars to the debt the
56:19
national debt and advocated for massive
56:23
growth in every sector of the government
56:25
you would say no no no orange man and
56:28
you would you would you would say orange
56:31
man maybe not orange me I’m bad but
56:32
words man no and then
56:35
and you would say Arab libertarian yes
56:38
that’s just an imagine that’s just a
56:41
mess yeah so Justin Amash went on
56:43
Twitter on the 23rd yeah today is that
56:49
today Wow okay so is breaking news this
56:53
is breaking news
56:54
yeah I can’t go up to her I’m not
56:56
wearing pants wheelers report describes
57:01
a consistent effort by the president to
57:03
use his office to obstruct our otherwise
57:05
corruptly and peed the Russian election
57:08
interference investigation because it
57:10
put his interests at risk it’s Twitter
57:14
so there’s multiple right the president
57:17
has an obligation not to violate the
57:19
public trust including using official
57:21
powers for corrupt purposes for instance
57:23
presidents have always had the authority
57:25
to nominate judges but a president
57:28
couldn’t select someone to nominate
57:30
because they promised the president
57:31
month it also revealed criminal activity
57:35
I don’t think that actually I think
57:37
that’s just a for instance yeah yeah it
57:40
also revealed criminal activities some
57:42
of which were committed by people in
57:44
Trump’s orbit and in the case of Michael
57:46
Cohen’s campaign finance violation on
57:49
Trump’s behalf the investigation began
57:52
before the president was elected in
57:54
inaugurate the Trump after Trump the
57:57
Trump after Trump assumed the powers of
58:00
the presidency Mueller’s report shows
58:02
that he used those powers to try and
58:04
obstruct and impede the investigation
58:06
which that’s gonna depend on who you
58:08
listen to Rand Paul disagrees with that
58:11
state right right right
58:13
and there was a great article in The
58:15
Washington Examiner written by my friend
58:21
whose name I’m blanking on right now
58:23
Jack somebody I can’t remember Jack I
58:30
can’t remember that well uh it who’s he
58:33
with the Washington Examiner okay but Oh
58:37
he writes a lot of stuff on WWE God what
58:42
does Jack’s last name it doesn’t but
58:45
where he’s lining out how both Justin
58:48
Amash
58:48
and his opinions and Rand Paul and his
58:52
opinions are both correct and it’s a
58:54
great article I we can link it in the
58:57
show notes Jack hunter yes oh yeah shout
59:01
out to Jack hunter hunter it’s a great
59:05
article we’ll link it in the show notes
59:06
on our website so you have to go to our
59:09
website to read it muddy waters of
59:11
freedom calm right but yeah check that
59:15
out
59:15
so Trump through his own statements such
59:19
as complaining about people who flip and
59:21
talk to investigators and who
59:24
communications between his personal
59:26
counsel and Manafort slash Cohen gave
59:29
the impression that they would be
59:31
pardoned if they did not fully cooperate
59:34
with investigators some of the
59:38
president’s actions were inherently
59:41
corrupt other actions were corrupt and
59:44
therefore impeachable because the
59:47
president took them to serve his own
59:49
interests the president has authority to
59:53
fire federal officials direct his
59:56
subordinates and grant pardons but he
59:59
cannot do so for corrupt purposes
60:01
otherwise he would be allowed to shut
60:03
down any investigation into himself or
60:06
his associates which would put him above
60:08
the law yeah so like you said there’s
60:17
some disagreement between Liberty
60:21
Republicans um between the I guess you’d
60:24
call it the libertarian light crowd um
60:26
oh man I shouldn’t say that should I
60:29
sorry between the Liberty Republicans as
60:36
to whether this is the case or not
60:38
whether what he did was impeachable or
60:40
not here’s what it comes down to do you
60:43
have the votes to impeach him so one of
60:46
my Facebook friends trey Sutphin he
60:49
wrote you could impeach the president
60:51
for jaywalking without witnesses if you
60:58
have the votes for it
60:59
if you have the votes in the political
61:01
will to do it
61:03
because of the unique nature of being
61:05
president it’s arguable whether he can
61:08
even be indicted at least while he’s a
61:11
sitting president and so it creates this
61:14
dynamic that it’s entirely left as they
61:17
pull it it’s left as a decision for an
61:20
entirely political group of people they
61:22
make their decisions based on getting
61:24
reelected there is no statutory function
61:27
here it literally just says and it says
61:30
you know for high crimes and
61:31
misdemeanors what’s a misdemeanor
61:33
misdemeanors like simple possession like
61:35
it pretty much says you’re leaving it up
61:38
to a bunch of people who have to get
61:39
reelected every two years and then in
61:41
the Senate every six years whether or
61:44
not to do it so it really relies mostly
61:47
on a combination of political
61:50
machinations public opinion a political
61:55
will of the of the the people in the the
61:58
actual body of Congress so I mean the I
62:07
so I haven’t read the entire report to
62:10
people that have whose opinions I
62:13
generally respect are Andrew Napolitano
62:15
and Justin Amash um
62:18
and they’ve said that you know this
62:21
stuff in there it’s impeachable i I
62:23
don’t that may be the case everything
62:26
technically some people being impeached
62:28
is impeachable just the the the the
62:31
getting enough votes being disliked
62:34
enough in Congress and in the general
62:37
public that Congress feels that they can
62:40
impeach you is impeachable um so III so
62:44
I don’t know but it again it’s
62:46
interesting to note that people who
62:48
ostensibly say that they are in favor of
62:50
you know getting this government down to
62:52
size here you have someone who actually
62:54
does that or tries to do that you know
62:58
he’s pissing in the wind most of the
63:00
time because he’s the only one there
63:01
doing it
63:02
or one of very few people doing it yeah
63:05
one of the handful I mean less than ten
63:08
people in in a body of what 535 people
63:12
between the House and the Senate that
63:14
are actually trying to reduce guv
63:16
and all much less or even trying to stop
63:19
its growth much less reduce it I was
63:22
gonna say it’s more so just trying to
63:24
like he’s trying to put the finger in
63:25
the dam yeah let’s let’s not have all
63:29
this wasteful spending but that’s that’s
63:31
all he’s trying to do yeah yeah and just
63:34
and he doesn’t have large hands so you
63:37
know much like Tron so like that’s a
63:40
pretty did to be fair you’d have to have
63:42
some pretty large hands to plug up that
63:45
particular dike right so I mean and
63:50
they’re angry I mean no oh he has you
63:53
know his family owns you know businesses
63:56
that do business in China have you
63:58
looked at your 401k recently and see
64:00
here’s the product so the people pushing
64:02
that they don’t even know how 401ks work
64:04
this feeds back to the whole that they
64:06
support tree that the you can’t support
64:08
trade protectionism without being an
64:10
economic illiterate in the first place
64:11
so to then go well you know he has some
64:15
investment ties to China if you have any
64:18
investment at all which you probably
64:21
don’t if you do it’s in China I got some
64:25
money in China it’s not because I said
64:27
I’m gonna restore a business in China
64:28
it’s because if you have any kind of
64:30
investments at all there’s some
64:33
adjacency to China there there’s some
64:35
intersection into China China’s the
64:37
second large account and second largest
64:39
economy on earth and the fastest-growing
64:41
one with a bullet you were gonna be
64:43
doing business in China now supposedly
64:44
his is more of a like there’s actual
64:46
family ties to China but he’s
64:47
consistently free-trade why wouldn’t he
64:49
have businesses in China it’s not like
64:51
this is some sudden thing that he you
64:54
know suddenly is in favor of you know
64:57
free trade free trade and suddenly you
64:59
know uh you know consistent about
65:02
whether something’s impeachable or not
65:04
regardless of who’s you know what party
65:06
the person that’s in power is this is
65:07
not new so if you’re if you’re if you
65:10
truly want a smaller government
65:12
you wouldn’t side with the guy who’s
65:14
constantly trying to grow government who
65:16
just had a State of the Union address a
65:18
couple months ago where he bragged about
65:20
how he was gonna out spend Russia and
65:22
out spend these people and and you know
65:24
child care for all and it you you that’s
65:28
not the path you take for limited
65:30
government
65:30
yes he owns the libs but that’s not you
65:33
don’t own the libs to freedom you you
65:36
grow government you you reduce
65:38
government to freedom and seeing the
65:42
conservative and even some libertarian
65:44
reaction to what a mash is doing tells
65:46
me everything I need to know about the
65:47
seriousness of most self-described
65:51
conservatives and and some
65:53
self-described libertarians in actually
65:56
reducing the size of government yeah and
66:00
man I had a really good point then
66:02
somebody pointed out a typo just
66:05
derailed you they pointed out no I said
66:16
I spelled that wrong actually I don’t
66:19
remember what I said maybe I said I’m
66:20
still hungry I am hungry mate did I dive
66:25
guys did I just verbalize that I’m
66:26
hungry
66:27
and anybody who feels like yeah just
66:32
like yeah drop a comment let it you know
66:34
cuz until I watch this again I won’t
66:36
know if I said that I meant to say I
66:39
spelled that wrong but I may have said
66:40
I’m hungry cuz I am everything in post
66:43
hours ago and my I didn’t see it until
66:47
maybe just before the show started and
66:49
my salivary glands just pantsless er say
66:56
um so so yeah Justin whoo yeah careful
67:01
Matt get his band on all channels say so
67:10
yeah Justin Amash he consistently stands
67:14
up for liberty he consistently stands up
67:18
for liberty yeah he Thomas Massie are by
67:22
far the two greatest people in Congress
67:24
they stand up for liberty as much as one
67:26
can eat in Congress right
67:30
and Thomas Massey is not at all nude so
67:32
even he and he stands taller than
67:34
everybody else he’s like this stuff but
67:39
he likes my shoes so you know he’s good
67:42
what’s it
67:43
that a name drop about Thomas Ness about
67:46
Thomas Massie yeah did he tell you that
67:49
while you were in a car with Rand Paul
67:51

67:56
building in DC he was like hey man nice
68:01

68:33
the Rolling Stones never mind we’ll do
68:35
that and then when they wanted to buy
68:36
drugs from you they didn’t want to buy
68:40
drugs from me oh they well there you go

68:46
facilitated it wasn’t specifically from
68:48

68:50
they asked me if I could get them and I
68:52
said yes the market provides that’s
68:55
right
68:57
somewhere Keith Richards is going crap
69:01
pretty sure pretty sure this is out of
69:04
the statute of limitations at this point
69:06
as is Keith Keith is also outside of all
69:10
statutory law yeah he’s aged past
69:14
statutory law at this point right he’s
69:17
like the opposite of a minor
69:19
he’s a post major yeah he’s like a post
69:25
graduate now and laws don’t apply to
69:28
Keith Richards that’s right yeah I
69:33
totally forgot where I was going just in
69:35
a match Thomas Massey Lectures sure it’s
69:39
Thomas Massie likes my shoes Judge
69:40
Napolitano taught justin mash they both
69:44
had read the read the report and these
69:48
are two guys that I respect the ever
69:50
living hell out of typically agree with
69:53
them across the board right now
69:57
creating moments across the board right
69:58
and Justin Amash is willing to do this
70:01
when he’s coming up for re-election
70:03
where he’s got a primary when he’s got a
70:06
primary somebody’s going up against him
70:08
he is still willing to stand out there
70:10
and say these things because that’s what
70:12
he believes and he believes that we as
70:15
Americans need to point out when bad
70:18
things are happening yeah this is a this
70:20
is a good go ahead
70:22
but with impeachment I remember what I
70:24
was gonna say so I can bring an old
70:25
background with impeachment we impeached
70:29
a guy for lying under oath about getting
70:32
a blowjob in the Oval Office from an
70:37
intern yes technically yes technically
70:42
correct yeah technically one could argue
70:46
that the entire government is under oath
70:52
at all times which means we could
70:58
impeach every president ever for lying
71:01
under oath which I’m fine with
71:06
do ya know I’m totally yeah okay even in
71:09
retrospect right the fact that somebody
71:14
gets impeached it’s only happened twice
71:16
before it would have been a third time
71:18
but Nixon had the foresight to resign it
71:24
only happened twice before if it happens
71:27
again all it’s going to do is impotent
71:30
Trump’s base yeah I don’t so unless
71:37
there is some smoking gun we haven’t
71:39
seen yet or some new action that hasn’t
71:41
been released yet to continue to drag
71:44
this out I think I think it’s gonna it’s
71:48
gonna hurt both sides in terms of voter
71:50
turnout I think it hurts Democrats more
71:54
than Republicans because the very people
71:56
you need to show up for primaries and
71:59
general election in specific areas are
72:03
precisely the people who will show up
72:06
for Trump on something like that you’re
72:09
gonna get massive voter turn
72:10
now in urban areas in coastal states
72:13
that he was going to lose anyway you’re
72:17
also going to get turnout from economic
72:20
illiterate in the Midwest who think that
72:22
the reason that they’re not doing well
72:24
is because of China and not the taxes
72:27
being imposed on their industries by the
72:29
US government and that you know and he’s
72:32
right now he’s throwing he just asked
72:36
for another 16 billion dollars to bail
72:38
out farmers that are being harmed by his
72:40
his his you know taxes and tariffs um
72:42
they think he’s on their side they think
72:45
it’s the the foreigners and the
72:47
Democrats that are hurting them
72:49
specifically on this and that you know
72:51
they’re trying to take him down the
72:53
narrative is perfect for him to get
72:55
reelected so I think and I think this is
72:59
what Pelosi wants to do just keep
73:00
investigating keep it out in you know
73:02
out in the public eye and keep
73:04
mentioning stuff but I think I think an
73:06
impeachment I think Bill Clinton
73:07
demonstrated what happens with
73:09
impeachment unless you have something
73:11
like hard you know ironclad it’s not
73:15
gonna turn out well and you’re gonna get
73:17
a ton of obstruction in the Senate side
73:19
because they’re Republicans they don’t
73:22
want to do it so it’s it’s I don’t think
73:26
it’s gonna work out well for them now
73:30
this is the time in the show real quick
73:34
before you which one are you goin with
73:36
are you going with the one the one
73:39
that’s not a real news story or the one
73:40
that is real new story they’re both real
73:42
news stories Matt I’m gonna I was gonna
73:45
do it I was gonna do the the what you
73:49
would call a real news story okay I’m
73:52
gonna end with the real news story it’s
73:55
not it is a real news story I didn’t
73:58
okay so I did not go and bitch about the
74:01
ending of lost or the ending of Dexter
74:04
or the ending of Seinfeld or the ending
74:08
I mean crayon I didn’t have a podcast at
74:10
the time or the ending of any other show
74:13
that has been disappointing that I spent
74:17
years of my lost I didn’t spend years of
74:20
my life I’ve been watch the crap out of
74:21
it and then watch the final season but
74:24
if I had had a podcast when Seinfeld
74:28
ended the damn world would have known
74:31
about that how I felt about that finale
74:36
anyway you said real quick before I go
74:39
on the real news story more states are
74:44
joining the National the National the
74:49
National popular vote as of recently
74:53
Nevada has passed through their
74:57
legislature the national popular vote
75:00
law the governor has not signed it as of
75:05
one day so my understanding is that and
75:12
obviously it’ll be challenged is that
75:16
you can’t have and I forget exactly how
75:19
its worded but you it’s not what they’re
75:21
doing actually isn’t constitutional
75:23
right so supposedly and I am NOT a I
75:27
they’re I would defer to someone who
75:29
would call themselves a constitutional
75:31
expert on this but that the Constitution
75:35
bans interstate pacts national
75:39
interstate pacts that don’t go through
75:41
the constitutional amendment process
75:43
right so you can all sign up and agree
75:47
to do this thing but without a national
75:50
popular vote constitutional amendment
75:53
you can’t do it anyway you have to
75:56
continue using the the electoral college
75:58
system it has to be amended within the
76:00
Constitution now if you reached a point
76:02
where you got you know 40 of the states
76:05
or 35 of the states that have done this
76:07
and the the public opinion was strong
76:09
enough then you could probably end up
76:10
also with the constitutional amendment
76:12
if you could get you know two-thirds
76:13
vote in Congress to do it but uh it is
76:17
it is very odd to watch people in small
76:22
states because some of these states are
76:23
small I mean yes California did it but
76:25
like Maine did it right
76:29
you’ve got five small states including
76:31
Rhode Island Vermont Hawaii DC Delaware
76:34
for mine not yep not me
76:36
for what well six medium states
76:39
including Maryland
76:40
ma ma is Maine Massachusetts
76:44
Massachusetts New Mexico Washington
76:48
Connecticut Colorado and four big states
76:51
Jersey Illinois New York California so
76:54
you have states that will lose influence
76:58
by virtue of the fact Vermont is not
77:03
going to matter at all like they’re
77:06
going on like they’re gonna have me of
77:08
zero consequence at all and it’s just so
77:11
weird to me to watch people that and I
77:14
mean I don’t favor any political system
77:15
but if I’m told okay how would you like
77:19
some in South Carolina I mean we
77:21
definitely would you know lose any kind
77:23
of say yeah how would you like your vote
77:25
to mean even less than it is now but it
77:29
means that possibly the guy you like
77:33
will get a you know the the side you
77:35
like will get elected because that’s
77:36
what’s pushing this this is because
77:39
Democrats win popular votes and lose
77:42
electoral college elections which is a
77:44
recent thing and it could change and
77:46
that would be hilarious if now
77:48
Republicans started winning and and to
77:52
be fair if it were routinely Republicans
77:54
that were winning popular votes and
77:57
losing electoral college elections there
77:59
would probably be momentum on the
78:00
Republican side too you know abolish the
78:03
Electoral College um but um you know
78:06
it’s entirely a political move so so
78:08
it’s why it’s not 15 states if the
78:10
governor signs it yes 15 states have it
78:18
I believe
78:20
Nevada could become the 15th state so
78:24
okay well it says according to the
78:27
National popular vote website 15 states
78:30
already have it sure they would be the
78:31
sixteenth yeah but according to CBS News
78:35
and the New York Times and The
78:36
Washington Post Nevada could become the
78:38
15th state oh because of DC oh so fit so
78:41
there would be 15 states plus DC if
78:43
they’d signed up so yeah so we’ll see
78:46
how that goes so here is a story so it’s
78:48
a local story but it
78:50
it’s a perfect example of how government
78:53
screws things up to benefit a specific
78:57
industry so in Raleigh North Carolina
79:00
they recently banned short-term rentals
79:04
of whole houses on using sites like
79:08
Airbnb and they didn’t even try to mask
79:12
why they were doing it they straight-up
79:14
said it was hurting the hotel industry
79:17
because that apparently hotels making
79:21
money is apparently more important than
79:23
private home owners making money and so
79:28
you so the the ban is I believe
79:31
effective immediately
79:32
um Airbnb was becoming incredibly
79:35
popular in Raleigh as it is everywhere
79:37
else and sites like Airbnb where people
79:39
are renting out their own homes and
79:40
people are getting much better deals and
79:44
not only are they getting better deals
79:45
from Airbnb but my wife and I travel a
79:48
lot and are in hotels a lot hotel prices
79:51
have gone down and they’ve gone down
79:54
because I would say because of Airbnb
79:56
you have increased competition you now
79:58
have sites like kayak and and other
80:01
third party sites that include Airbnb
80:04
submissions in there in there when you
80:08
look for you know lodging in a specific
80:09
area they include Airbnb and other
80:12
website listings on there and there are
80:14
often better deals than at the hotels
80:15
and the hotels have had to lower their
80:17
prices to match it this is entirely a
80:20
you know there’s a term for people that
80:23
are against government and big
80:24
government that’s called rent seeking
80:26
and it refers to when lobby groups for
80:31
industries Lobby the government to pass
80:36
laws that basically make more money for
80:39
that industry and they call it rent
80:40
seeking because they’re seeking to get
80:42
more money and this is literal rent
80:45
seeking they are seeking more people to
80:47
rent their rooms by eliminating
80:51
competition by telling private home
80:52
owners you know you own you own your
80:55
house we tax you every year and if you
80:58
don’t pay it will eventually steal your
80:59
house from you but you own your house
81:01
and you know we have zoning laws that
81:03
tell you you can
81:04
do this in your house you can’t have a
81:05
second kitchen in your house you can’t
81:06
do this you can’t do that in your house
81:07
but you own your house now we’re going
81:09
to tell you that you cannot voluntarily
81:11
agree with another consenting party to
81:14
have them come to your house for a
81:15
specific period of time and then give
81:17
you money in exchange for that because
81:18
it’s hurting the hotel industry so
81:25
absolutely that was something that they
81:28
were dealing with here where I live in
81:31
my suburb of st. Petersburg which is a
81:35
suburb of Tampa ok where I live they
81:40
were trying to get rid of Airbnb because
81:42
a lot of people were buying houses
81:45
running about as Airbnb zand they were
81:47
trying to get rid of that they didn’t
81:48
want it so now if you want an Airbnb
81:50
where I live you have to apply for a
81:53
business license you in a zone that is
81:57
zoned for business and residential and
82:02
those are the rules that they have made
82:04
and I think it’s stupid and I’ve thought
82:06
about air bein being out my room it’s
82:09
just it’s for what good reason there’s
82:12
no reason for it they don’t even try to
82:14
give a reason they’re like well it’s
82:16
hurting the hotel’s good good like what
82:21
do I care about the hotel industry
82:23
it increases tourism it brings it
82:28
increases revenues yeah it helps out
82:32
people it makes owning your home
82:36
affordable for a lot of people that are
82:38
you know up to here with their mortgage
82:41
or or you know they’re there or they
82:43
just why even if they’re swimming in
82:45
money they get more money out of their
82:47
home you tax their home
82:49
you already tax it like it’s a you know
82:51
as though it’s some business that they
82:53
have it’s their home it shouldn’t be
82:55
taxed you shouldn’t be taxing people to
82:56
live on their own property if you want
82:59
to tax them for school tax them when
83:01
they send their damn kids to school
83:02
don’t tax me because someone else sent
83:04
their damn gets to school tax the damn
83:06
kids tax the kids 2019 don’t tax anyone
83:11
but if you’re gonna attack someone tax
83:12
the damn kids tax the damn kid so 2090
83:15
there’s a there’s another story that i
83:17
sent you last week that we
83:18
totally forgot to put in the notes that
83:19
this story reminded me of Jim thickened
83:23
another local guy here in my in pinellas
83:28
is this another Sierra Peterson thing no
83:31
this is a real story okay all right okay
83:32
I sent you the story and I said hey can
83:35
we talk about this and you said yes and
83:37
I because I don’t remember any of this
83:40
so I’m gonna let you out about it until
83:42
just now okay I actually scroll back to
83:44
read it the article okay Jim and who
83:47
lives in Dunedin when you read that it
83:50
looks like it’s doomed in but it’s
83:51
Dunedin Dunedin Florida which is
83:55
literally maybe 20 minutes north of me
83:57
okay he admits that he let his grass
84:00
grow a little too little oh yeah and he
84:06
has now been fined by his City Council
84:09
thirty thousand dollars in code
84:13
violations that he accrued in 2018 the
84:17
city find him five hundred dollars per
84:18
day over the summer per day per day and
84:22
now the city has moved to foreclose in
84:27
him and wasn’t the reason that he wasn’t
84:29
responding because he was in another
84:30
state dealing with his dying mother or
84:32
something like that yes he was out of
84:37
state I would need to get back down to
84:39
that quote anything that happened there
84:42
he was in South Carolina ah nope sorry
84:47
that’s a different issue
84:48
how thick and was in South Carroll yeah
84:50
okay in 2015 well fit Goins in South
84:52
Carolina Dunedin sign him for having
84:54
grass that was too tall while he was
84:58
aiding his dying mother she died in the
85:03
summer 2016 thickened left uneaten for
85:06
two weeks in July of 2018 to manage her
85:09
estate and during that time the man who
85:13
mowed his lawn died so he didn’t know
85:17
any of this was going on he had no idea
85:20
any of this was going so he wasn’t even
85:21
just so I thought it was like screw my
85:25
lawn I’m dealing with my dying mom he
85:26
still thought that was being dealt with
85:28
yes not that that makes any of this I
85:30
mean when
85:31
mater he could just say I don’t want my
85:32
lawn to grow period I want my lawn to
85:34
grow up here anyway go ahead yeah so he
85:37
when he got back he tried to mow his
85:39
lawn his mower broke because the lawn
85:41
was too high right right right yeah and
85:44
it says that doesn’t even Dunedin which
85:47
is the name of the city not a person’s
85:48
gave vacant no notice it was charging
85:50
him 500 dollars every day for the length
85:52
of his grass and the fines be ft because
85:57
his ficken was a repeat offender you
86:00
know because he kept leaving he kept
86:02
having his grass exist on his lawn right
86:06
it was nearly two months before faking
86:08
knew oh that healed the city tens of
86:10
thousands of dollars he filed a lawsuit
86:14
and now they are moving to foreclose on
86:17
his house so this is this and the rally
86:20
story and and other local we often will
86:22
talk about local government infringement
86:25
on your right because it’s very sexy and
86:27
and and and you know popular to talk
86:30
about these like you know the federal
86:33
government is doing this and you know
86:34
the feds are doing that and the state is
86:37
doing that the and this to my to my
86:39
small limited decentralized government
86:42
friends who say well I just want
86:44
government to be more local this is
86:46
local government local government the
86:50
federal government for a myriad reasons
86:53
doesn’t even have the energy to try to
86:56
tell you what your lawn should look like
86:58
your local government absolutely will
87:02
take your home from you for the dumbest
87:05
garbage like this for your the length of
87:08
your lawn or that you tried to rent it
87:10
out to someone without getting a license
87:12
first on your own home again your own
87:15
home or you know you didn’t pay that the
87:18
the tax that you pay for the privilege
87:21
of owning your own land and and and home
87:24
um this is local government so you get
87:29
rid of the federal government or you
87:30
make it very very tiny and you take all
87:32
the power and give it to the local
87:33
government you said because I can walk
87:35
to City Hall and tell them how I feel
87:36
yeah and they’ll arrest you you’re not
87:41
gonna get the likelihood of you being
87:42
killed by a federal agent is in
87:45
readily incredibly low it is markedly
87:48
higher the odds of use is too low most
87:52
people don’t get killed by cops but if
87:54
you’re gonna get killed by someone in in
87:56
a form of government it’s gonna be local
87:58
it’s probably not even gonna be a state
88:00
cop it’s probably going to be a city or
88:03
county or region you know a town cop or
88:06
whatever and it’ll probably be over some
88:08
stupid crap it’ll probably be some over
88:11
something stupid so when we talk about
88:14
decentralized local government this is
88:17
decentralized local government it’s it
88:19
is a lope it’s a bunch of your people
88:21
that live probably within 10-15 miles of
88:23
you maybe even close maybe a few blocks
88:25
of you if you’re in a big metro area
88:27
look really you know within a you know
88:29
short drive or even a hefty jog away
88:35
from you telling you what to do with
88:39
cops who also live close to you who are
88:41
more than willing to use whatever level
88:43
of violence is required to force you to
88:45
comply with in this case losing your
88:48
home because you were in another state
88:52
you know with your dying mother
88:54
and that lawn not even you know you’re a
88:58
house caught on fire and you you know it
89:01
burned your other neighbors or there
89:02
were someone squatting in there and
89:04
committing crime your lawn yeah your
89:07
your grass your grass grew the weeds
89:10
that grow in your front yard that we all
89:13
cut to make look already pretty
89:17
grew too much too much and you’re
89:22
dealing with your mother’s estate in a
89:26
different state at the time you hire
89:27
somebody to take over and mow the lawn
89:31
for you and they die and they pass away
89:34
yeah and then you come back and like
89:37
well I need to fix this and after all of
89:40
the stress that you’re already dealing
89:42
with your mower brings and it breaks
89:45
because your lawn is way overgrown and
89:47
you need to have a professional come in
89:48
and whatever they’d steal your home
89:51
because of this what is the threat to
89:54
the public so I’m told well you know we
89:56
still need to have some government
89:57
because because other
89:59
who’s gonna protect us who’s gonna
90:01
protect us from the threats
90:02
what threat does this pose to the public
90:04
what threat does this even pose to his
90:08
next-door neighbor
90:09
it’s lon what is this dude this is
90:12
literally just people going well we
90:14
don’t like how it looks you don’t have
90:16
to like how it looks don’t steal my
90:18
house right and I say this is someone my
90:22
lawn stays manicured and I don’t even
90:25
like lon I want to pull it out and
90:27
replace it with clover so I never have
90:29
to worry about it again um that’s a
90:31
whole thing but I should be able to let
90:37
it grow six feet if I want it’s my lawn
90:39
my lawn does not stay as manicured as it
90:43
is supposed to based on my lease but it
90:48
stays managed it stays manicured its
90:50
manicured ish so so I mean so that’s
90:53
when you’re when when if you’re if
90:56
you’re not an anarchist like me where we
91:00
got now one hour 38 minutes if you’re
91:04
not an anarchist like me if you still
91:05
believe there should be some kind of
91:07
government okay great this is local
91:09
government this is small decentralized
91:11
local government this is what it brings
91:13
you it brings you stupid the that
91:17
smaller more local government will give
91:20
you the most dumb stupid little micro
91:23
regulations on stupid crap like this
91:25
that is what you were way more likely to
91:29
face problems with the state over then
91:31
you know some big federal law and again
91:35
federal intrusion is a real thing too
91:36
but let’s not pretend that if you if you
91:40
make government if you only have small
91:42
local government infringing on you that
91:44
it’s somehow less of an infringement
91:45
it’s actually a much more active
91:46
infringement because they’re right there
91:48
they’re not in DC and relying on you
91:51
know relying on on you know state police
91:55
to enforce compliance they’re right
91:57
there they are your neighbors so that’s
92:01
what I think about that right now let’s
92:04
end this show with orally with the real
92:09
start with the real story there’s some
92:11
disagreement here as to whether this is
92:12
a
92:12
idea or not but this is not a democracy
92:17
this is a republic Game of Thrones this
92:23
is a real news story Game of Thrones
92:25
which is the most popular TV show in
92:31
human history watched by over a billion
92:38
people billion people Game of Thrones
92:44
after an eight-year run this is real
92:47
news Matt eight Game of Thrones ended on
92:52
Sunday with after it was eight seasons
92:58
the first five seasons were absolutely
93:06
amazing best it’s why it was the most
93:09
popular show on TV best best best show
93:12
ever one of the best shows ever and the
93:16
cinematography was incredible the
93:18
storyline was incredibly complex
93:19
character development through the roof
93:21
this is real this is real news and the
93:24
sixth season was was good had my
93:28
favorite episode ever the Battle of the
93:30
bastards really good then the the
93:36
producers of the show David Benoit and
93:39
DB Weiss decided that they wanted to
93:43
wrap things up super super super quick
93:45
because they wanted to get to work on
93:48
their Star Wars project that they’re
93:50
doing for Disney because that shouldn’t
93:52
be ruined
93:55
Star Wars brought to you by Disney and
93:57
the people who ruined their own show so
94:01
the last two seasons have been with each
94:03
episode progressively worse while at the
94:07
same time so two things have happened
94:09
here the show writing has gotten worse
94:14
and worse and worse and worse and worse
94:15
and worse this show production values
94:17
and acting have gotten better oddly
94:21
enough because these were all relatively
94:23
unknown actors all any any actor
94:26
was like well-known prior to the Game of
94:30
Thrones
94:30
died in the first season which I love um
94:32
so these were all people that weren’t
94:34
known prior to Game of Thrones most one
94:36
were kids when they started they’re all
94:38
real quick I’m the production value that
94:41
has gotten better and better and better
94:43
and better how many times in the first
94:46
seven seasons did you see a Starbucks
94:49
cup or a water bottle right so that’s
94:51
that’s the that’s the real that’s the
94:54
problem is that the production oh he was
94:57
getting better and overall it has so
94:59
there’s this paradox where the scenes
95:02
that they’ve created are Marvel comic
95:06
universe movie level quality but then at
95:09
the same time there will be a water
95:11
bottle next to someone’s foot like you
95:13
can tell that certain parts of the
95:16
production have taken it to levels uh
95:18
never before seen in in a TV series and
95:21
other parts have just completely checked
95:23
out um and so it’s a really weird thing
95:26
the acting’s gotten better production
95:28
overall has gotten just more and more
95:31
elaborate and insane the writing itself
95:34
went from being some of the best to
95:36
being to not making any sense this is
95:40
what should have been three or four full
95:42
seasons to take to finish telling this
95:44
story and instead they wrapped it up in
95:46
thirteen episodes over two seasons that
95:48
they made us wait three and a half years
95:50
for between the two between one year
95:53
over a year for one season and then two
95:54
years so did it for the other season so
95:56
we waited three and a half years for
95:57
this they completely destroyed six and a
96:01
half years of character development I
96:03
could spend an incredibly long period of
96:06
time talking about all of the parts that
96:10
make absolutely no sense Jon Snow killed
96:14
Daenerys Targaryen who was the cow of
96:17
the Dothraki
96:18
she was the Khaleesi of the Dothraki
96:21
when a when someone kills the boiler
96:24
drop that with no warning it’s been
96:27
almost a week at this point I did it but
96:30
still if you don’t know that Jon Snow
96:32
killed Daenerys Targaryen I don’t know
96:34
what to tell you at this point I don’t
96:36
know what I’m gonna point a spoiler
96:38
warning
96:40
I have never seen game of Furman I’ve
96:44
seen a few episodes here and there
96:46
because it’s hard not to when you hang
96:49
out at the places that I hang right and
96:51
I am not like I’m not your anarchist
96:53
vegan CrossFit or non-game I don’t
97:00
CrossFit okay like I don’t have to bring
97:05
that stuff up right but I’ve never seen
97:09
Game of Thrones I also I knew how it
97:11
ended because immediately upon the
97:14
ending of the final episode I went to
97:16
one of the places that I hung out
97:17
because I got tired of having to be
97:19
really quiet for an hour and a half
97:21
while all of these idiots who won’t
97:24
watch it at their own house they are
97:27
their own HBO relying on bars to do it
97:33
for them so I don’t have to illegally
97:35
download it like the rest of like like a
97:37
normal person would right no no we can’t
97:41
be bothered with that we’re just gonna
97:42
go make everybody who wants to go out
97:44
and have a good time be quiet for an
97:46
hour and a half so that is funny well
97:49
you got is funny so I went afterwards
97:54
and I was talking to the bartender and I
97:56
was like how was the episode and she was
97:58
like well I really liked and she spoiled
98:00
the entire thing for me and I didn’t I
98:02
didn’t care right yeah so I don’t care
98:05
so John Keller
98:05
there’s mean anything to me and
98:08
apparently the little retarded kid ends
98:11
up as the king he’s because now he’s
98:13
all-knowing I don’t know he’s the one in
98:15
the wheelchair that doesn’t talk a lot
98:17
he might be a eunuch I’m not really a
98:19
hundred now pushed out of a tower on the
98:23
first episode
98:25
well then because he found the princess
98:29
and her brother having sex this is how
98:32
the show was introduced it was and that
98:34
was by Jon Snow’s dad not even close
98:37
killed who’s more of a king killer than
98:40
anybody there are so many bad things
98:42
happening that Matt is saying none of
98:44
that’s true he’s not referring I saw him
98:50
in one episode and he was talking and I
98:52
was like that kid must be
98:54
no they turn him into this like he
98:56
doesn’t feel things he’s this mystical
98:58
being who that who suddenly now wants to
99:00
be king never mention it before the
99:04
whole games
99:05
I could spend I might do a show where I
99:10
just vent am I sitting – do this to you
99:13
where I just vent about everything wrong
99:15
all of the the logical inconsistencies
99:17
of this dragon fairy show um the only
99:24
one I want to bring up that sentence
99:26
really slowly the logical
99:30
inconsistencies of this Dragon and fairy
99:32
and white and and and and an ice Tom B
99:36
monster show right when people were
99:39
going off on loss and I’m going to say
99:42
that I did not mind the lost ending
99:43
because if you’d been watching the show
99:45
you would have known they told you how
99:48
it was going to end the entire frickin
99:51
show right
99:52
they set the entire time this place is
99:55
too hot to be heaven it must be hell
99:58
they were insipid no spoiler alert
100:00
that’s in season three spoiler and they
100:06
said it a bunch of times throughout it
100:08
so when you find out it’s the afterlife
100:09
anybody that was freaking surprised by
100:12
it is a moron and just had their their
100:15
hopes high and that’s how I feel about
100:18
most people that complain about TV shows
100:20
and how they end it didn’t end the way
100:23
that you wanted it to so now you’re
100:25
gonna bitch and complain about it and
100:27
sign your petitions and beg HBO to
100:29
remake it oh sorry you didn’t like the
100:32
last Jedi sorry that you didn’t like the
100:34
fact that Luke Skywalker tossed his his
100:37
lightsaber over his shoulder in the
100:39
opening scene completely throwing away
100:41
any of the meaning that that lightsaber
100:43
may have held for the last three six
100:46
movies they don’t care they made a
100:51
billion dollars a billion people watched
100:55
that episode you think they give a crap
100:58
what sixteen thousand or a hundred
101:00
thousand people think about it no they
101:04
don’t so Jon Snow kills Daenerys
101:07
Targaryen
101:09
she’s the Khaleesi of the Dothraki okay
101:12
and what’s up his aunt his aunt yeah his
101:15
aunt that is that’s that’s true that is
101:18
true
101:18
his aunt the way it works with the
101:23
Dothraki whoever kills the cow or the
101:26
Khaleesi
101:26
becomes the new cow so he kills her and
101:32
the dragon comes rogue on comes down and
101:35
pushes her go oh oh you’re dead and then
101:38
he inexplicably burns down the throne
101:40
and people were saying oh this was a
101:41
deep he burned the throne because you
101:45
know he saw that that was why she died
101:47
because of her quest for her mad quest
101:49
for power I think if it’s anything like
101:51
the rest of the writing on the show I
101:52
think the dragon thought that the chair
101:54
the chairs made out of swords he thought
101:56
that the chair stabbed her so he burned
101:59
down the stabby chair and it carries his
102:01
mother away carries the woman away
102:03
carries Daenerys away it then fast
102:05
forwards to where he’s been held
102:07
prisoner by the unsullied in the dull
102:09
rocky for killing their leader that’s
102:10
not what should have happened what
102:12
should have happened was they went well
102:14
you’re our new leader and if the
102:15
unsullied said no no no our leaders
102:18
Daenerys and you killed her the Dothraki
102:21
should have been like diadem we don’t
102:23
follow that he’s our leader that could
102:25
have been a real series that could have
102:27
been a great way to end the series in
102:28
the battle between the Dothraki and the
102:30
unsullied for la blah blah blah blah but
102:32
instead we then have to watch nearly an
102:36
hour of of terrible writing where they
102:46
then decide that bran is going to be the
102:48
King who’d brand who’s doesn’t care
102:53
about anything and who shows up they
102:54
show he shows up to the first King
102:56
meeting and goes yeah I don’t care about
102:59
any of this I’m gonna go try to find the
103:00
dragon and then he leaves so that’s
103:02
what’s gonna be like now there’s so much
103:05
there’s so many there so it is sister as
103:09
an anarchy his sister says well the
103:12
north is going to be independent now as
103:15
we were for thousands of years right
103:17
next to her that varies they states they
103:20
pan over to
103:21
the next camera angle they show is of
103:26
the queen of the Ironborn and the Prince
103:30
of Dorne Dorne and the Iron Islands also
103:33
both independent for thousands of years
103:35
and then they go and I thought they were
103:38
gonna go yeah we’re gonna be independent
103:40
– I’m like okay this is you know a
103:42
constitutional convention everyone’s
103:44
gonna break away and there anything
103:45
gonna be a king anymore and instead they
103:46
go and that was and that was he an NFA
103:52
of course see him had a water bottle
103:54
next to him cuz why the fuck not at this
103:55
point this damn show let’s let’s
103:59
and this is why Breaking Bad is the
104:04
greatest show that has ever existed
104:06
raking bad great finale untold and this
104:10
late with Breaking Bad you get you get
104:13
your closure on pretty much everything
104:16
that you ever could possibly have wanted
104:18
to close your own you get and it may not
104:21
have been what you wanted but it told
104:23
you what happened and it made sense and
104:26
it makes an amazing sense that that was
104:27
the biggest problem this I I was upset
104:29
that the series was ending I was upset
104:31
that it didn’t make any damn sense you
104:33
spent six and a half years developing
104:36
these amazing character plots and you
104:38
throw have where’s the Lord of Light
104:40
where’s the however you say in Valyrian
104:43
the prince who was brought where is this
104:44
stuff it’s just the midget says give it
104:47
to the crippled and and oh here’s here’s
104:50
a hot take the dragon burned down the
104:52
throne because he knew that the new king
104:53
wouldn’t eat it let’s just throw
104:55
everything away at this point who the
104:56
hell cares it’s garbage it makes me sick
104:59
and I’m not gonna watch I’m gonna
105:01
continue my boycotting of Disney star
105:04
wars because Disney star wars Disney
105:07
star wars brought to you by the people
105:09
who just ruined the most popular TV show
105:13
in human history this is what I got most
105:19
animated about for this episode by the
105:21
way yeah I mean me too and I didn’t even
105:24
see it so Disney ruin the show
105:33
because they hired two people yes I
105:38
defer to the Star Wars purists on my own
105:42
in my social circles to give you the
105:44
specifics of why Disney has ruined Star
105:47
Wars because I don’t know but meanwhile
105:49
I said to them may any Star Wars Pierce
105:52
so I just want to say this Star Wars
105:56
Christmas special look it up it’s a
106:02
thing it is the first appearance of Boba
106:04
Fett it was before George Lucas started
106:08
taking this way more seriously entirely
106:12
because the before he realized it was a
106:14
billion dollar or four billion dollar
106:16
yeah before he realized that like the
106:18
world was taking this way more seriously
106:20
than he was Star Wars Christmas special
106:23
or holiday special whatever it is very
106:24
very Star Wars Christmas look that up
106:28
yeah so I will never not be angry at
106:33
this what happened in Game of Thrones
106:34
and and it sucks this Star Wars
106:39
Christmas special wasn’t Disney and I
106:42
don’t care what to be like the people
106:45
who say that the prequels are better
106:47
than the new the new movies the new
106:50
trilogy or the nor the spin-offs or the
106:52
one-off they’re wrong they are just
106:54
blatantly completely wrong
106:58
the storyline which was written by the
107:01
same guy who wrote the original the
107:05
storyline written by the same guy that
107:06
wrote the original plane doesn’t even
107:08
follow the storyline where he put into
107:10
place wait because we’re because well
107:18
he’s well in Empire when they’re sitting
107:21
there he’s like how did you know my dad
107:22
he’s like oh I met your dad when he was
107:23
a fighter pilot with with the resistance
107:26
right that’s what obi-wan Kenobi says to
107:29
Luke that’s what Coast obi-wan Kenobi
107:33
says to Luke right just so nobody’s like
107:34
no he didn’t because it was goes to
107:36
whatever no that’s what he says to Luke
107:38
in the prequels winded Anakin and
107:42
obi-wan me
107:46
when he was an obnoxious little child
107:49
who apparently had an immaculate
107:52
conception because the mom didn’t know
107:54
where he came from and then they brought
107:57
in meta chlorines and it’s not like the
108:00
force is just you having some
108:01
all-knowing power about being able to
108:03
like manipulate what’s around you it’s
108:05
oh you have these tiny little parasites
108:07
that live in your blood that give you
108:08
this power and it’s not about like being
108:12
a religion or having some sort of
108:15
spirituality no it’s just you are now
108:16
born with this and then they get mad
108:22
about the classist overtones in the last
108:24
Jedi like I don’t care
108:28
there were classist undertones in the
108:31
last Jedi I didn’t so I didn’t see the
108:33
last Jedi I just watched people vent
108:35
about it yes so the last Jedi they go to
108:38
I don’t learn the name of the planet
108:39
they go to a planet and it’s like a
108:41
gambler’s planet and one of the
108:43
obnoxious characters Rose who I will
108:45
admit Rose really messed up and she is a
108:48
terrible character and I wish she would
108:50
have died I do I wish you would have
108:54
died it would have made that story so
108:55
much better if she had died not just
108:57
because like she was a terrible
108:59
character but because of what she was
109:01
trying to do would have made a lot more
109:03
sense instead of almost killing the guy
109:05
that she allegedly loves she could have
109:08
killed herself and done the exact same
109:10
thing and it would have been a much more
109:12
poignant and poetic way to do what they
109:14
were doing but they needed to make sure
109:16
that they had the Asian in for the next
109:18
episode and I get that because it’s
109:21
Disney the same people who made Song of
109:24
the South gotta make her the payer
109:27
culturally appropriate
109:31
Jon Snow is the cow of the Dothraki and
109:34
I just no no he’s now he’s he’s he’s up
109:41
in the true north with the free folk the
109:46
Toth rocky would love it there anyway
109:49
instead they’re getting on a boat with
109:51
the unsullied and going to I don’t even
109:54
remember where who cares at this point
109:56
and whose boats are those
109:59
there’s just there’s like I actually
110:02
started to write notes of everything
110:04
that I had wrong with it and I thought
110:05
no I’m not gonna do that but then I
110:06
ended up doing it so I should have put
110:07
the notes John snows the cow of the
110:12
Dothraki and I just wanted I just want
110:16
to say that I don’t really care about
110:18
Star Wars I just I want to say here’s
110:21
the other thing I want to say about Star
110:22
Wars no I don’t want to say that it’s
110:30
fear I’m just very upset I’m not
110:32
watching anything else I’m gonna go back
110:35
and just watch the office again because
110:37
that that’s one that ended well
110:40
Parks and Recreation ended oddly but it
110:44
person Trek was weird it was weird but
110:46
it but it but it but you know what it
110:47
did do no one could complain that they
110:49
didn’t know what happened because you
110:50
know what happened like 60 years out
110:51
what happened so that that you know
110:53
weird but any office should have ended
110:56
when Steve Carell left yeah it should
110:57
have it should have it should the whole
111:01
Andy Bernard as manager thing was really
111:03
weird cuz he was gone for half of it
111:05
because he was filming one of the
111:06
hangover movies oh yeah so he was gone
111:10
for most of his tenure as manager and
111:12
then he was all upset that he was
111:13
getting fired and let’s just spoil
111:16
fucking everything every all this shows
111:19
and he gets all upset that he’s getting
111:22
fired and then Dwight and the short
111:25
little who I can’t remember her name
111:27
right now because I haven’t seen that
111:28
show in a week who Pam now the other one
111:32
hit the one he’s been hooking up with
111:34
like the entire oh I’m looking at her
111:37
face right I can see her face in my mind
111:39
the blonde one oh yeah Angela yeah
111:42
Angela he has this great relationship
111:45
with this really hot farmer chick and
111:47
then he finds out that the dad only
111:51
wants to marry her off so that way he
111:52
can like get part of the land or some
111:54
right right right family law and he’s
111:58
like no but I still love Angela and then
112:00
they throw together to this wedding and
112:01
the only good thing about it is where
112:04
Steve Carell comes back and says his one
112:05
line in the entire episode right that’s
112:08
what she’s yeah I can’t believe you came
112:12
that’s what she’s saying and that’s
112:15
literally all he said in that whole
112:16
episode yeah
112:18
the other thing he says more but you
112:20
don’t hear it’s all like yeah it’s lame
112:21
yeah talking on the background yeah yeah
112:23
yeah yeah the only thing he said in the
112:26
entire episode and I’ll assume that’s
112:27
because they at that point they couldn’t
112:29
afford the cost of having Steve Carell
112:31
say more than one line on the show maybe
112:35
I’m wrong but I yeah they just wanted it
112:38
to be he comes in he he’s not stealing
112:41
anything else he’s not stealing a scene
112:43
right words there he makes his one
112:46
classic joke right and then departs into
112:50
the ether but that was a better
112:54
appending than on Game of Thrones
112:57
Jon Snow is the call of the Dothraki
112:59
that’s all I want to say it’s it’s their
113:01
rules let’s see if you’re gonna have
113:03
rules then follow the rules
113:06
it didn’t say if someone kills your
113:08
Khaleesi then go go off to Essos with
113:14
the unsullied and I’m saying that I want
113:19
to get the huge shout out to the two
113:20
people who are still alive and the
113:25
hundreds of people that will listen to
113:27
this because we uh we do well with the
113:29
departing podcasting what other show can
113:35
we spoil for people The Sopranos now
113:37
that and English shit that was a garbage
113:39
ending now I’ve heard someone say that
113:42
the reason that it just cuts to black is
113:45
because that person kills Tony and
113:47
you’re seeing it from his point of view
113:48
but that’s not how point of views work
113:50
um because you’re not seeing it from his
113:53
point of view you’re seeing him from
113:55
your point of view so I don’t I don’t I
113:57
don’t because I guess an earlier up in
113:59
an earlier episode Tony says when you
114:02
die everything just fades to black
114:06
everything just cuts to blow oh okay
114:08
well then there you go so he got killed
114:10
now supposedly there was gonna be a
114:11
Sopranos movie but then Michael
114:15
Imperioli James Gandolfini died that and
114:18
you can’t do a Sopranos movie without
114:20
Tony Soprano they are are they really or
114:25
oh they are doing a prequel fair enough
114:28
um so yes happening that I’ve been
114:32
reading the casting updates on it so at
114:34
this point I am not gonna watch TV shows
114:36
until they are complete and I am told
114:39
that they ended well and thanks you’re
114:42
gonna get so the people who liked it and
114:44
there are people who like the ending of
114:46
Game of Thrones who well I would like
114:52
you to have them message me so I can so
114:56
I can tell them they’re wrong man I
114:59
would love to watch a show with you and
115:02
Shaun Simpson debating this okay so I
115:05
would watch that all day let’s book it
115:07
let’s hope I will send him a message and
115:11
be like hey man you wanted to bait
115:13
somebody on game of throne I’ve seen
115:19
I’ve seen people who enjoyed it and then
115:21
I’ve seen but you’re always gonna have
115:22
the vocal minority who are out there
115:25
yelling and complaining and we are not
115:28
the minority no whoa whoa wait wait well
115:30
we’re the vocal majority you don’t know
115:33
that Oh alien people watched it yeah and
115:36
a lot of us are mad a lot not all oh no
115:40
image or most most are mad most of most
115:45
people and you’re getting I know that
115:48
you’re gonna agree with this most people
115:51
are so complacent they’re just gonna
115:52
agree with whatever it is that the
115:54
writers did and they were just happy to
115:55
see whatever happened no because wrong
115:59
eight words this is not right this is
116:03
true average intelligence incorrect
116:07
are you above average intelligence I I
116:11
can’t see judged by human intelligence
116:14
standard so yes I transcend human
116:19
intelligence right so would you say that
116:22
the average human is intelligent this is
116:28
wrong if you’re not gonna logical
116:32
umi-friend
116:33
but yes no no I would not right the
116:38
average human is not until
116:39
the average human also likes Game of
116:41
Thrones I don’t like where this is going
116:45
at all right and therefore it’s wrong
116:48
there’s going to be accepting of
116:50
whatever it is that they do if you look
116:52
at it in political parties it doesn’t
116:54
matter that Obama bomb Syria and it
116:57
doesn’t matter that Trump is actually
116:59
doing socialist things the people who
117:02
support it blindly support these actions
117:08
and defend them the people who support
117:11
what happened in Game of Thrones blindly
117:14
will defend it
117:15
just because Game of Thrones is their
117:18
show and they will defend it’ll be wrong
117:26
so we’ll just agree to disagree and that
117:29
you’re doing yeah you offended our half
117:33
of our viewing audience just now so well
117:37
that wraps up this pantsless Thursday
117:41
episode that was as scripted as one
117:43
would expect such a thing to be so
117:47
what’s so is Jason back next week or
117:50
maybe you might be back oh we might be
117:56
back tomorrow so guys possibly tomorrow
118:02
on Friday there may be an episode of
118:06
there may or may not be an episode of
118:10
Jason Lyons pivotal show or SEP say
118:15
pivotal um mr. America the bearded truth
118:19
he’ll then possibly or not be on again
118:23
on Monday for mr. America the bitter
118:25
truth and then check us out on pants
118:30
with pants Tuesday’s episode of the
118:34
muddy waters of freedom where we parse
118:37
through the week’s events as as they
118:42
happened and then next Wednesday I will
118:45
have an episode because I’ll have a
118:46
guest hopefully and her name is Chloe
118:49
Val dairy and she is going to be talking
118:52
about her
118:53
series the theory of Enchantment theory
118:58
of Enchantment and then who do you have
119:00
next week in just as poorly as Game of
119:02
Thrones
119:02
no no because it sounds like a spinoff
119:06
no it’s not a TV show it’s a it’s a dark
119:16
has now gone to the West for anybody who
119:19
didn’t know uh real because that’s when
119:23
the people might actually not have have
119:25
known so we apologize for them I’m just
119:29
happy we had an episode where we didn’t
119:30
have to clarify that we’re against rape
119:33
which we are we are strongly we are very
119:38
much we are an anti rape production so
119:42
