ABOUT THIS EPISODE

We break down the “Send Her Back” chant, Trump’s tweets that stoke division and fear and explore this topic more broadly within the context of our inalienable rights of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.  We also get in to the political style of The Squad, a delicatessen that is trying to capitalize on the Send Her Back rhetoric and the “Move to Somalia!” retort by many progressives.

Then we dive deep into the topic of the Death Penalty as it
re-emerges on the national stage.  We
look to the morality (or immorality) of the policy, the hypocrisy, the costs,
the deterrence effect,  biblical claims
of righteousness and government’s true purpose in securing individual rights.

We also discuss various other issues and people including Robert Mueller, Nancy Pelosi, Art Bell, Gordon-Michael Scallion, Kingdom of Nye, Pahrump, Area 51, Loch Ness, Nessy, Kabuki Theater,  Ilhan Omar, AOC, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ayanna Pressley, Rashida Tlaib, Bernie Sanders, Ron Paul, minimum wage, birtherism, Low Energy Jeb, Crooked Hillary, Lyin’ Ted, Li’l Mario, Justin Amash, Greensville, John Canesa, Canesa’s Brooklyn Heroes, free markets, low regulations, low taxes, individual liberty, Somalia, Win-Win, Win-Lose, Old Testament, New Testament, Eye for an Eye, Turn the Other Cheek, Love Thy Neighbor, Forgiveness, Poway, birtherism, birth right citizenship.

Quotes:

Tribalism is a product of fear, and fear is the dominant
emotion of any person, culture or society that rejects…reason. – Ayn Rand

The hardest thing to explain is the glaringly evident which everybody has decided not to see. – Ayn Rand
