    Iowahawk is suggesting de Blasio go all in with the groundhog killing, at least initially. He might win Iowa because of their competition with the Minnesota Gophers.

    Ricochet Audio Network: professional TV Rob Long

    Rob Long is a professional transvestite? I always suspected…

    Ahem.

    Anyway.

    “TV professional” might work better.

    Thank you, Mr. Long! I would rather listen to you, Mr. Goldberg, and Mr. Magazine discuss emptying vacuum cleaner bags for an hour than have you talk about Game Of Thrones. What an overrated show.

    We interrupt this podcast to gratuitously bash Trump supporters as equivalents of selfish, ignorant and small-minded Hollywood types…

    It’s hard to like people who insult you, and it’s hard to listen to people who still miss the point and focus of a giant ( and non-monolithic) movement as having much insight in general. Yeah De Blasio is ridiculous. We know that. Oh, and he smokes weed. Ha ha.

    This was my first listen in a very long while. I guess I’ll take another break.

    Regarding mispronouncing words as came up in this episode, Dennis Miller used to sometimes say that something was the epi-tome of hyper-bowl.

    If your break included skipping 116 and 117, those were both really good.

    (They aren’t really 116 and 117, because GLoP numbering has been off by one for a long time. But that’s how they show on the site.)

    Not as good as 6/13/17, but they can’t ALL be that good.

    As Jonah has discussed on The Remnant regarding other candidates, DeBlasio is probably hearing that he should run for president from consultants that he’s paying to tell him that he should run for president. Mostly because the consultants will make a lot of money from it.

    It’s straw-manning and it’s boring. Couldn’t he at least preface it, “The most hysterical and the most anti-capitalist Trump people, the equivalent of lefties who are worried about the U.S. invading Venezuela because they don’t want the U.S. to mess up Venezuela.”

    Jonah is guilty of this too. I am well aware that people who like Trump are very mean to him on twitter and many of those twitter people don’t have a well thought out philosophy. But there are seriously smart and decent people who are into Trump and it would be more interesting if you addressed their critiques then complaining about social media because social media is always dumb.

    I think the democrat field is full of people so deep into their own bubbles that they can’t find sunlight. They have the durable misconception that in order to win in 2020 all they have todo, is not be named Trump. So in their minds their policies do not matter – their past records do not matter. All they have todo is win the democratic primary and they’re in like Flynn. This is why there is no sunshine between the candidates, one loonatic suggests that felons should vote from jail and all the other loons fall over themselves to agree. Carelessly leaving behind miles of video tape and juicy quotes for the general election’s negative ads. They all running so hard at the far left of the democratic primary voter demographic, that they’ve completely forgotten about how their lunacy plays for the other 97% of the country.

    Look at Beto, Mayer Newman, and Mayor Blazo, they’re all failures. Beto couldn’t win his home state against Cruz (not a Texan btw) who is radioactively unlikable, and outspent Cruz 3:1(?) only to loose.The mayors run high tax, high crime cities that have both seen better days, have no inking of a better days dawning, and yet find it possible to run for president? Failing upward. Is there a single candidate in the field that has a record of success that they can run on?

    (I know Biden has a long record in the senate, but can he really run on those crime bills of the 1990s that resulted in the current prison populations?)

    And when it comes to stuff like foreign policy, I’ve heard even Democrat big-wigs admit that Biden has been wrong on every foreign policy issue for at least 40 years.

    Even with all of that, though, we should realize that a large number of people will vote for whoever the democrat nominee is, no matter what.

    This was my first listen in a very long while. I guess I’ll take another break.

    This is so tiresome.

    In that case, dear, I’ll elaborate. Rob was making perfect sense describing a problem that is a fundamental issue in economics, I forget the label – is it the tragedy of the commons? Probably not, but it’s a sad, near-term, shallow way of seeing the issue. Here I am working on my lawn mower in my garage, unable to fast-forward through the lengthy ( and tiresome) live-reads but trying not to let it bother me ( not because ad revenue isn’t justified, because there’s a point of diminishing returns for a listener’s patience and it can become counterproductive- something I’ve told them directly several times) agreeing whole heartedly with Rob, when he suddenly feels the need to equate this trait with Trump voters.

    I don’t quite understand the reference but Rob didn’t elaborate and the other two seemed to know what he was talking about. Does he mean the people who voted for Trump as opposed to, you know, Hillary? How shallow and short-sighted! Does he mean people like me, a guy who is agreeing with his every word on this matter?

    Is there some aspect of Trump and his voters who generally are looking for short-term, selfish solutions which are self-defeating and ultimately will affect everyone negatively? You mean like how we should have had Jeb, or Chris Christie, or Marco Rubio who won’t challenge ossified institutions? Is the argument these systems and institutions (like talent agencies) have fully justified and unassailable mandates to continue unchallenged, or is it he really thinks Trump voters are stupid anarchists?What exactly? 

    Whatever. Some people are in positions they never are required to explain themselves, but they are usually Democrats in the media.

    Next there is the very tiresome practice of my right-leaning (tilting?) friends on Giggling Lads of Presumptions of making fun of all things cannibis. This is more hackneyed, low hanging fruit that exclusively comes from people who have no knowledge of the experience. So De Blase’ – O smokes weed. Is it the weed that makes him whacky or do whacky people smoke weed? It doesn’t matter because it works for them either way. They don’t. There ya go.

    In 1967, James Coburn starred in the superspy parody movie IN LIKE FLINT, in which Coburn played the part of Derek Flint, superspy attempting to thwart mad scientists.

    Thus, it’s possible that @OccupantCDN is using “in like Flint” to add a satirical note to his analysis mocking the Dirty Two Dozen Dem candidates.

    The phrase, “in like Flynn“, was first recorded in the 1940s, when Errol Flynn was notorious for his romantic conquests. Twenty years later, the producers of a James Bond parody chose a title that was a takeoff on the famous phrase.

    I agree and sincerely hope that @roblong has a positive experience when he’s away. Having both experimented with LSD* and Psilocybin (decades ago as a teen) and recently listened to Michael Pollan’s book on microdosing, I think that experiencing the effects of such substances in a managed environment could be truly enlightening. So, good luck with that, Rob.

    *Per Pollan, the reason the new research focuses on Psilocybin rather than LSD is that the latter’s viability was destroyed by its association with the mixed bag that was Harvard professor Timothy Leary.
