    BTL #163 - MAVERICK TWITTER WARS - 7/20/15

    In Which We Discuss:

    1. Heartbreak in the war hawk community as Iran nuclear deal robs them of a reason to rumble

    2. As if just living in Tennessee isn’t its own brand of terror, their standard American-issue mass shootings are now getting complicated by non-redneck political ideologies

    3. Donald Trump picks fights with “maverick” John McCain, but luckily for everyone he also picked a fight with Mexican drug lord El Chapo so somebody may rid us of the Trump problem soon anyway

    4. Democrats first “cattle call” gives Iowa party activists a look at all 5 candidates, leaving many of them to wonder...Hey, what are most of you guys doing here?

    5. Phoenix feels the Bern with the biggest campaign rally of the season.  For anybody wondering, that does mean Sherrif Arpaio's Arizona just had the biggest rally of the season for a Socialist.

    BTL #162 - THE DEFINITION OF UNITY IS HATING TIME WARNER - 7/12/15

    In Which We Discuss:


    1.  Bernie Sanders hates your cable company just as much as you, and that’s why he’s can be the President.

    2. Alan Grayson has a novel idea: running as an actual Democrat in a Democratic primary.  Guess who the establishment people are supporting…

    3. Donald Trump reminds us that he’s, “like, a really smart person.”  His surge in the polls proves that Republican primary voters are, like, really dumb people.

    4. Jeb Bush currently has all the money but don’t worry, if you work longer hours it’ll trickle down.  That’s worked in history, right?

    5.  If Germany can Shock Doctrine Greece, does this mean that California can Shock Doctrine Kansas and get rid of Sam Brownback?

    6.Why can Republicans never remember the third thing?  Now even Texas border states are suffering from this scourge.
