Alt Center 4: Recent News Static
George chats about listener feedback and news from the last couple weeks. Andrew attempts to join him, but is changed into a Cylon about twenty minutes into the episode. Seriously, people, we had some great conversation this week, but Andrew’s mic failed 20 minutes into the show. We’re releasing this episode because of the great conversations, but be prepared to hit pause or turn down the volume about 20 minutes in. We’ll be back next week with FAKE NEWS! and better audio quality.
- Ben Carson and Slavery
- Honestly, we think the media is overreacting. What he said was dumb, but how is that new for Ben Carson’s political statements.
- New immigration order
- Mostly the same. Still unnecessary and spiteful. Gives 10 days of warning. Doesn’t block green card holders. Still blocks refugees. Still doesn’t block any of the nations where the 9-11 attackers came from, or many other nations where terrorism is a significant threat.
- ACA/ObamaCare Repeal
- Trump’s Nominations
- As of January 25th, over 2000 nominations have not even been made. Many are at agencies which Trump wants to downsize anyway, so it’s not really an issue… unless you think those agencies matter.
