This week, with special guest, Semi-Colon, we hit 3 majors: Cheney not playing nice in the party; Trumps Facebook ban continues; and the silliness, and danger of the AZ 2020 election audit. Then SC opens my mind to the brutal world of the chicken sandwich wars. The beer this week is Short’s Brewing Big Bird Blood. A nice fruity summer beer, that’s almost there.

Episode 89 – What A Relief! / What Is Your Normal
This week I discuss the Republicans unwillingness to compromise on the Covid Relief Spending package. Even when it’s their ideas they won’t vote for it. Is Biden doing the right things at the border? Trump is at war with the RNC – Grab some popcorn! Republicans know they cannot win elections unless they reduce participation. Some scary times are unfolding in right-wing controlled state capitals. Do the MAGAts really care that much about the Royal family??? Seriously? Finally, what is the new normal, should we go back to the old normal? Beer this week was Short’s Brew Space Rock.

Episode 84 - A Failed Coup
We very quickly established a recurring theme involving the number “84” this week. Semicolon returns to help us discuss the events of the last few days. It starts with both Democrats winning the Georgia Senate runoff late Tuesday night. Midday Wednesday Trump gives a speech to his cult saying they are going to walk down to the capitol and show their strength. Shortly after that the horde storms the capitol building and forces their way in. How was something that has been talked about for so long been allowed to happen? Trump, many hours later, condemns the riot but still says “I love you”. Trump makes one final speech where he finally commits to a peaceful transfer of power. Then gets banned for just about every major social media platform including Twitter. What a wild ride. All within the first week of 2021.

Episode 83 - Merry Pod’ems UP! \ Busting Clays
A lot to cover this week as Trump starts to pardon everyone who helped him break the laws of the country. Should the president’s pardon power be restricted? The House and Senate both agree to a new COVID stimulus package however it only includes $600 per person and a lot of pork. Trump, of left field, wants $2000 per person. Is he finally trying to help the American people or just putting the Republicans between a rock and a hard place? Knobs talks about going to the range and shooting clay pigeons. Is that a part of the 2nd Amendment?
