Join Jim and Greg as they are pleased to see the December jobs report exceed expectations while many economists brace for a recession this year. They also unload on President Biden for his deceptive and disingenuous immigration speech downplaying the crisis, exaggerating his response, and blaming Republicans for the problems. Finally, they push back on the latest assault on reality – the “transage” movement – which suggests your age is not your real age but the age you identify as.

    My brain tells me I’m still twenty-one, but my body disagrees.

    “The Rockford Files” dealt with that long ago, in the episode “Quickie Nirvana” from 1977.

    Does anyone else get the Chumba Casino ad? It’s some online casino and I’ve always found it annoying. Mainly because of the cadence of the lady reading the winner’s copy. Lately that part is a different reading but now the text is triggering the pedant in me. Mary says, “I was playing for fun so winning was a dream come true.” Which is it? It was my dream to win the jackpot so winning was a dream come true or I was playing for fun so winning was a huge shock? 

    Yes I’m a nit-picking jerk, but it gets tagged to the Three Martini Lunch and Federalist Radio Hour podcasts so I hear it a lot and I have thought too much about it.

    Would it hurt Republican pundits to stop saying that Biden’s policies are failing? They are working as planned, so from their vantage point they’re not failing. Say that the policies are ruining the country, but from the administration’s point of view they are successful. If they wanted the border secured, they wouldn’t have done a 180 on Trump’s policies. These aren’t your Grandfather’s Democrats who might have wanted the best for America but disagreed on how to get there.

    Not an actual winner’s voice.

    I must be a nit-picking jerk too.  I’ve been irritated by that same statement.  Don’t ad writers look at what they write down?

    Greg and Jim are part of the unilateral disarmament wing of the Republican Party.

    They feel virtuous for denying the obvious truth that the Democratic Party is no longer a patriotic party.*   

    Today, Democrats always put the interests of the Democratic Party ahead of the country’s interests.   (See:  Border crisis, etc.)

    *Military veterans in the last House:   56 Republicans vs. 21 Democrats.   Those numbers were once roughly equal, I’m pretty sure.
