Undisputed King of Stuff, columnist, and longtime Ricochet Editor-in-Chief Jon Gabriel is in for Jim today. Jon and Greg tackle one good martini and two crazy ones to close the week.

First, they cheer Virginia Gov. Glenn Youngkin for his veto binge on many bills passed by Democrats out of the legislature (although he should have vetoed more). In addition to nixing a minimum wage hike and numerous gun control measures, Youngkin also rejected legislation to legalize marijuana dispensaries. And Jon and Greg have plenty to say in support of Youngkin slamming the brakes on pot shops.

Next, they highlight the stunning hypocrisy by New York City Councilwoman Amanda Farias, who is lamenting that more men won’t step in to protect women from attackers in the city. But just last year, she publicly denounced Daniel Penny, the ex-Marine who subdued a man on the subway after making many menacing threats to other passengers. What did Farias think would happen when people doing the right thing get prosecuted?

Finally, while Jon and Greg highly endorse reading the Bible, they cringe as Donald Trump endorses Lee Greenwood’s God Bless the USA Bible and the website proudly proclaims that it’s the only Bible endorsed by Trump.

    Today’s episode is dominated by a sneering tone.

    “Let them drink martinis” is the 21st century equivalent of “Let them eat cake”.

    And if you think reading the Bible is a good thing, you should applaud Trump for encouraging people to read it; especially members of the increasingly unchurched working class.
