Welcome to the Harvard Lunch Club Political Podcast for August 1, 2018 it is number 186!!! and we call it the “Illegal Printer” edition of the show. We are your 3D printed hosts – totally within the law – radio guy Todd Feinburg and A.I. guy Mike Stopa here, as every week, to read between the lines, dive into the text and explain to you the fine print of the events (some political, some not) of the day.
This week we give a brief account of California burning to the ground which, if you live here like I do, is pretty unfunny. And then we launch into our two topics. This week, we consider the Harvard-Harris poll, recently released, showing that the primary issue of concern to 38% of the electorate heading toward the 2018 midterms is illegal immigration. 51% of conservatives place it at number 1. 36% of swing voters do.
Of those concerned swing voters, how many are sympathetic to the illegal aliens themselves and how many are sympathetic to the Americans who have watched their laws being ignored for a generation, their jobs taken and their emergency rooms overrun (…you know the deal)? We will discuss.
Then, it seems that you can now print plastic guns that actually work. A childhood dream. But they don’t look like actual guns, so most kids would rather an M-1 toy than a real 3D printed piece of heat. Is it a big deal? Is this technology striking a blow for liberty?
But it is, for a variety of reasons, interesting. We ponder.
Our shower thoughts – well, you’ve come to expect them, right? to *rely* on them even, right? We do not disappoint. And last a hidden gem that, sometimes at least, captures it all: Love Hurts by Nazareth. Enjoy!
