Episode 310: Mob Violence is Always Wrong

Mob violence at the US Capitol

The attack on the Capitol building in Washington, DC was wrong and anyone involved with it should be punished to the fullest extent of the law.

Vast majorities of both Democrats and Republicans agree with that statement. But if we distill it down to it’s base argument — mob violence is always wrong — the opinions diverge.

In this episode, I talk about why that is, and suggest who might be to blame for normalizing mob violence.

How do you choose?

While the presidential race is still in litigation, things look quite good for Republicans down-ballot. At the very least (assuming good turnout in Georgia for the 2 Senate seat runoffs), Democrats’ more radical agenda items may be stopped.

How do you choose your news channel? Is it that it shows you the slant you want? If so, maybe “news” isn’t what you’re looking for.

Episode 306: 2020 Election Thoughts

Defund the Police?

I have 3 topics this time, all suggested by listeners.

First, a description of how the pandemic has affected one listener.

Second, an email wonders what “defunding the police” will do to taxes; will they go down or will the government find somewhere else to spend the money? 

And third, another email alerted me to a group on the Left that is planning to react to any election shenanigans of violence from the Right over the election. At least, that’s what they claim.

Nope, they’re not the same

The largest study of transgender people, and how gender surgery affects their mental health, has reversed it’s results. The original study said that such surgery was helpful to their mental health. That was covered by the news media. But 10 months later, it turns out that the results were not as they were sold. Has that been covered?

Dan was the last of his kind, but now he’s been cast aside. What was it that caused his demise?

Many of my friends on Facebook have been conflating absentee ballots with all-mail (or universal mail-in) ballots. They are not the same, and yes they do have serious fraud risks. That’s not just me saying it.

Thoughts on Super Tuesday

I have a few thoughts about Super Tuesday (regarding events before, during, and after it), as well as a question from a listener.

Imagine touting the benefits of unionization to your audience, but when your employees want to unionize, you get upset. Teachable moment?

Next stop on the slippery slope

“Just because same-sex marriage is legal doesn’t mean that other changes will be made, like polygamy!” That’s what they told us. And yet we keep slipping down that slope.

Democrats say the dardest things! Sometimes they’re funny and sometimes, well, let’s just say they’d never let a Republican get away with saying that.

The app that napped

We might still not have 100% of the votes counted in the Iowa Caucus, and the chairman of the DNC is calling for a re-canvassing of the results. What a nightmare that has application in other areas of government.

With the impeachment of Donald Trump behind us, I finally have some thoughts about it.

And Hillary Clinton is getting sued…by another Democrat. Get out the popcorn!
