Episode 12 - Socialism and Communism, CA vs. AG and more.
In this episode we talk about California Governor Jerry Brown standing up to US Attorney General Jeff Sessions on immigration, how socialism is completely different from communism and the USSR flag represents the latter not the former, and I'm terrified that Trump is the president setting up the talks with North Korea.

Episode 10 - Our Democracy Needs Saving
Our democracy needs saving. Russia, Egypt, and China just to name a few countries with fake elections. We need to make sure the US doesn't go that direction... ever. Republicans, along with some Democrats, are rolling back the bank regulations put in place after the financial crisis in 2008. What could go wrong? And, again, we need common sense gun laws and we need to support our children and students as they say never again and fight the NRA.

Episode 9 - We Need Common Sense Gun Laws and other stories
I've had enough. We need common sense gun laws NOW. Enough is Enough. Also with Russia's new threat of nuclear annihilation via cruise missile, the Pentagon is evaluating the US missile defense systems and the Supreme Court is hearing a First Amendment argument about political paraphernalia at polling places on election day.

Episode 8 - New Cold War? Mueller v. Trump? Georgia v. Delta
There is no rest for any of us. Putin tells the Kremlin that Russia now has a ICBM that can evade anti-missile defenses, Mueller is looking into Trump's actions where he tried to get rid of Attorney General Jeff Sessions last July. And the Lt. Governor of Georgia is threatening Delta Airlines with taking away huge tax breaks if the airline cuts ties with the NRA. I told you the craziness keeps coming.

You can now privately bookmark tweets, Trump, again, goes after Sessions, who is trying to do his job, somewhat, and Jared Kushner is manipulable.

Episode 6 - Unarmed Rambo Trump vs. Armed Gunman and more
Our "brilliant" president said something stupid as hell the other day. The Vietnam-dodging Donald Trump said he would have charged unarmed into the Parkland Florida high school to take on the armed gunman.

Episode 5 - Some Big Brands Are Sticking By The NRA and more.
Some big brands including YouTube, Amazon, FedEx, Bass Pro Shops and others are sticking by the NRA despite calls for them to drop the controversial gun organization in the wake of the Valentine's Day Mass Shooting in Parkland Florida. Also in the news, EPA head, Scott Pruit, says the Bible is guiding him to harvest our natural resources (*He's referring to Natural Gas and Coal).

Episode 3 - Marijuana and Net Neutrality
The two topics of legalizing marijuana and Net Neutrality might not be all that similar, but with the Trump administration in power, both are very relevant.

Episode 4 - The Janus case is at the Supreme Court and more.
The Janus v. AFSCME Council 31 is getting underway at the US Supreme Court, Trump has some reckoning to do with his base and WTF Trump is musing about killing all drug dealers in the US.
