RoleyShow (general)
A (multiple) personality driven improvised podcast about current events, culture, and life. New episodes M-F.
1. Followup:  FauxPseudo — FYI: you don't understand your opponent's argument unless you can explain it in words they would agree with.  Additionally, if you can't do this then you don't understand your own argument either.I know where you got that.  It was me.
 
See? I can be taught!
 
Followup:  Cody — "There's more to Canadian music than Rush."
YEAH LIKE SUM 41 AND AVIRL LAVIGNE AND JUSTIN BIEBER LOLOL
 
…Drake.  You forgot Drake.   Frankly, I forgot Drake.  It’s still hard to recognize him without the wheelchair. 
WHAT?
 
2."The Last Republican”   
 
PB: HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA So, when JFK advocated reducing tax rates in introducing his 1963 budget that makes him, what? I fiscal liberal? And when the economy improved after JFK's tax cuts, that was what? A coincidence? And when the economyvastly improved after Reagan's tax cuts (launching the longest period of economic growth in U.S. history), that was, what? A reaction to Jimmy Carter's big government tax-and-spend policies? And the unemployment rate falling to it's lowest point in 16 years, the job participation rate reaching it's highest level EVER and the stock market almost daily reaching new highs since Trump was elected is what? Companies deluding themselves that Trump's proposed tax reform will allow them to grow, sell more products and have higher profits?
 
Dumbass FOX News soundbite logic again.  Loves to throw out the grenades, but as always, you don’t know what in the fuck you’re talking about.  You know, but other than that, I’m sure your mother loves you. 
 
Just. 
 
So, let’s dismantle that stupid fucking argument, shall we?

The day started off badly with hearing about the death of Gord Downie of The Tragically Hip.  Truthfully, I've been listening to The Hip all day at this point.  I share a story about the time I saw them play live.  
 
The day ended wonderfully, as I got to have dinner with a good friend who inspires me.  
 
I'd rather talk about these things today, you can go somewhere else for all the Trumptasms.  I'm sure I'll be back to the grind tomorrow.  Maybe.

You'll have to forgive me, I'm channelling a ghost from the past. Or maybe the future. It doesn't really matter. Here I am, and here you are. I'm Alex, and I have some things to tell you.
