This week, I take a break from the current news and look back at the subprime mortgage crisis, which led to the Great Recession. I talk about the things that lead up to the crisis, and how we didn’t learn from history and, sadly, might still repeat history in the future.
I meant to get to a lot more than I did this week, but I kept going on tangents and spent more time talking about some things than I had expected. This week, I touch on more Amazon stuff (their pullout from NYC and their tax bill), Mueller vs. Trump, and a couple of other tidbits.
This week, I talk about various inconsistencies on various issues such as gun control and abortion, the death of Payless Shoes, Amazon’s decision not to locate in NYC, and the deal to avoid another government shutdown with a side of national emergency and subsequent lawsuits.
This week, I am kind of all over the place as I talk about Trump and the Mueller investigation, how well AOC’s Green New Deal Resolution went over, and the political mess in Virginia.
This week, I talk about local government. I get into the lawsuit that California Governor Gavin Newsom filed against the City of Huntington Beach. Also, I talk about the 2019 Financial State of the Cities report from Truth in Accounting. How much “truth” is there to their accounting? Listen to find out! (Hint: This week, liberals nor conservatives are safe this week…)
The government shutdown appears to be ending. But is the re-opening only temporary? And is there a better way to deal with immigration? Also, Rep. Ocasio-Cortez predicts that the world will end in 12 years. Do I give “zero” f—s?
It’s a quick takes episode! This week, I follow up on a couple of points from last week’s show, the LAUSD teachers’ strike, an update on the shutdown and the peeing contest between Trump and Pelosi, what Trump really meant about Mexico paying for the wall, and the new “controversial” Gillette commercial.
This week, I discuss the APA’s take on “traditional masculinity,” Trump’s first Oval Office address, and the lofty goal that was discussed by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on 60 Minutes.
In the first episode of 2019, I get into what I think will happen with the government shutdown, why moderate politics is really the prevailing political philosophy but won’t take hold, as well as some other news and notes, as well as a tribute to the late, great “Mean” Gene Okerlund. Happy New Year!
First we have some business as I follow up on the previous episode regarding charter schools and I cover some of the new California laws coming January 1. Then, it gets fun with interviews with all three of my kids!
