Happy New year!!This is Repo's fourth year and we start this year with confusion and relief. The team gets together with a rapid fire recap of the events from the recount, insurrection and the inability of the democrats to fight back. This 2 part session starts the year off with our thoughts pinging off the walls and microphones.
We close out with what we think the Biden Administration will look like. Discuss what are options with dealing with the 72 million people who saw Trump was the right way to go. And just some off the top thoughts on how our country will be in 2021.
We flip from the basics politics of the day and talk about one of E’s favorite activity. Sports. So much of our everyday social and professional life circles around sports that we wanted to have a segment on it. We talk about school safety and the rent and mortgage moratorium.
The team starts back up with trying to define what states are more relevant than others and then we talk about the elephants in the room the civil unrest and the military occupying cities. We also give props to "On Tyranny" by Timothy Snyder and how we should follow this play book to look out for dictatorships.
We end with our personal contribution to Black Lives Matter and how anyone and everyone should do something
Today we talk a little on Kanye busting on stage once again to disrupt the news feed while thinking about how people with mental illness can effect other peoples lives. We also jump ready into the fear of not having your voice heard by not being able to vote.
With all of the nonsense going on, we talk about the humor and information that is out and the people who are looking at any reason to rebel using free rights and civil liberties as the excuse. But in the end there is no humor in racism and debating anyone who doesn’t understand there is privilege for some more than others. Also what's your thought about Black people with guns who just wants to protect them selves?
The team returns and gets into the impact of the Stimulus checks. How will our economy adjust and will our country collapse soon with the more we charge to the federal credit card. Also, should some businesses survive and should some businesses deserve to survive?
So, this looked like it was going to be some silly animal activist redneck documentary that wasn't worth my time. But some how, I started hearing about this guy Joe exotic that was plotting to kill people. So I sat down and decided to grin and bear this crazy so called king of the tigers. Boy was I blown away. It actually was so huge I wanted more. Here's my take on this Netflix documentary of Joe Exotic, the Tiger King.
This episode a question is raised on with the different generations that lived through World Wars, Vietnam, Civil rights and assassinations. What will Millennials be remembered for other than avocado toast as well as entitlement during a time when chaos inner nation is overwhelming.
