  • Liberal wasteoids trying to kill our congressmen and the complete BS explanation by the New York Times.
  • Filthy little traitors with stupid names
  • Traitors in transition
  • Fun at Disney
    • People that stop in front of you in a crowd and looking around like a pole axed cow
    • People that talk like Disney experts tick off the real experts (The Goon)
  • Former POTUS's Carter and Obama
  • Pres. Carter's Mom
  • People (Hillary) who don't listen to others and then don't take the blame when they fail
  • Useless people at work who do less than nothing
    • Goon invents a coping game ...
  • Immigrants that won't learn English and our culture
    • and by "our culture" The Goon means the one that came here and pushed The Chief's culture out
  •  

    Corrections

    • Pretty sure The Goon meant HW Bush, not HR Bush. Maybe he was thinking about this guy?  
    • Crutch got the 1980 and 1984 elections mixed up

    Episode 10: Georgia on our Minds The Boys are short one again and talk about the election in Georgia's 6th district. Who are Karen Handel and Jon Ossoff ?

    Follow the Money

    Ossof sounds like a Conservative

     

    S. Carolina 5th - Dems Lose

    Another more expected win for the GOP

     

    And we need to talk about the Russians!

    Well, actually those crazy Ukaines and their plan for a Reagan statue

    Maybe under this POTUS, the Minsk Accord will be upheld...

     

    So, this song has been running through my head ever since we did the show ... still great.

    Episode 6: What's with our schools? The boys discuss the state of our nation's school system, and the children in it. This video was the sparkthat lead us to the entire nights conversation.

    What the Trump Administration is doing ...

    Secretary of Education Betsy Devos' contribution to the new budget is discussed.

    The Kids How local schools are instilling a moral compass

    The Christian school in Maryland that is forbidding a pregnant student from walking across the stage at graduation is generating a great deal of conversation, even amongst the boys.

    Object Lessons

    The idea that action have consequeces had the boys exploring the Dixie Chicks incident in 2003, which pretty much killed their fan base.

    The Goon discussed the Station Nightclub Fire with the Goon-child as a lesson on being situationaly aware.

    Episode 3: Childhood Stories The boys relate childhood stories themed by the classical elements. Air, Earth, Fire, and Water. The classical four elements provide the inspiration for the stories of childhood experiences that in hindsight were pretty darn funny but today would involve law enforcement and child protective services. If you're old enough to relate to some of our stories then we've definitely hit the Centurm Silver crowd. For those of us whose parent are still alive we can neither confirm nor deny if these stories are true. Links to the few of the things mentioned in this episode are below:

    • Model Rocketry
    • Jarts - because toys should kill from above. Buy it?
    • Bleves - this is a great video on the subject
    • Caps - hours of fun for kids with guns. Check here
    • "Mae Wests" - A personal floation device described here

    Episode 2: Customer Service The boys discuss the state of customer service. The boys bemoan the current state of customer service in America. Crutch tells of his almost surreal experience at KFC and The Chief has a suggestion on how to handle it. The Goon tells what happens when an unstoppable force (his better half, The Hurricane) meets the immovable object a (possibly former) employee at one of those fine Marriott properties. The conversation veers into taxes and the boys discuss the new tax rates.

    Episode1: 4-13-2017 First one Our inaugural show. Seems this is a tough word for Crutch to say. Luckily there's only one. In this show we discuss Crutch's son's participation award for non-participation. . The Goon opines on how United Airlines beats the customer instead of their competition. We do a little politics about how trusting Russia depends on your agenda. We check in on the results of the Kansas special election.
