Bill and Randy are back with their heathen "New York Values". In this episode we sift through the recent Democratic and GOP debates with a segment we call "Bravos and Bullshit". Tune in to see who takes home the gold...(hint...it could be the GOP). We discuss the disturbing habit of racists who feel they no longer have to censor their bullshit in public. We serve up some fantastic clips from this month's cavalcade of political comedy and finally crown a new set of tin foil hats. It's a show brimming with unclean "New York Values". Take the circle line to the Empire State and hop on board!!!!
Bill and Randy are back from the holiday break in America. We crown our 2015 Tin Foil Hat of the Year (hint...he wears a ferret on his head). We play the disturbing new parlour game...you decide..."Is It Trump or Hitler?" Its a fun game, guaranteed to depress the entire family. We focus on a bunch of lonely cowpokes in Oregon, who just can't seem to attract any interest. Finally we hear Obama's mild suggestions on gun reform and the putrid response by FOX and the GOP candidates. Finally we seriously come to the conclusion that to save America each every one of us...MUST STAND.
Trump jumps the shark and goes fascist while the GOP establishment stands back in terror. We look at the true scariness of a party which is deliberately making the country less secure and more crazy. Bill and Randy also look at the Bible and the Koran and come to the conclusion that there's more than enough insanity to go around. Finally we discuss something a bit more fun....the marketing Godzilla that is the new Star Wars movie. We glory in the fabulousness that IS...Carrie Fisher. It's a long distance visit to Crazytown from Boston Massachusetts and Long Beach California, as Bill and Randy take a trip to the home country. Climb into your economy seating and come along!
Bill and Randy investigate the questions in the media after the terrible terror attacks in Paris. We answer the vexing question, "Why do they hate us?" We also stop laughing as Trump shows us the ugly face of the American Right. We discuss why Trump is following a policy that would make him Isis's best friend. We look at Ted Cruz and ask...where's HIS birth certificate? Finally we have a short moment to discuss the many questions we receive as a Progressive Podcast overseas. It's getting ugly on the campaign trail...
Bill and Randy discuss another debate in crazy town. We ask the eternal question, will the economy collapse if your waiter gets 15 dollars an hour? The GOP says yes. We take a look at the facts. In Randy's Rant, we take a look at the Loony Right's beef with Starbuck's Christmas Cups. We include some wonderful comedy clips. Finally we discuss the craven irresponsibility of GOP candidates who endorse a man who cites the Bible when inferring that all gay people should be put to death. Its our new one hour format WEEKLY Bill Show. Climb aboard!
Yes, Hillary destroys the GOP in the Bengazi hearings, sending her poll numbers soaring. She also starts playing fast and lose with her attacks on Bernie Sanders after the Democratic debate. We ask the absurd question...is Sanders a misogynist? We also look at the the gradual destruction of Jeb Bush during the second GOP debate. We discuss the amazing work of crazy performance art that IS...Ben Carson. (Hell0, Doctor Nick!). And finally we discuss Halloween with our favourite senile old Uncle. It's show #132....Climb on board!
The Democrats had an intelligent discussion of relevant issues facing the country in the next four years....you know...a debate. Bill and Randy discuss a Democrat debate that made you proud not to a Republican. We investigate the post debate beltway response that seemed divorced from EVERY SINGLE post debate poll. We discuss the question...is Hillary a "progressive"? We also go over the record and analyse the claims made by the candidates. Randy's rant investigates the origins of the second amendment and how the right of your crazy Uncle to own an UZI is a fairly recent development. (Thanks Supreme Court...great work...) We share a giggle with all the recent political comedy clips. Finally we end with two certified heroes! It's a Honeymoon in Vegas for Democrats...climb aboard everyone!!!!
Bill and Randy inspect the GOP reaction to the most recent mass murder in Oregon. We discuss the experience in Australia and Obama's passionate speech from the White House. We discuss the possibility of Hillary using the gun issue to appeal to progressives, after her solid policy statements in the past week. We salute the spin doctor of death, Mike Huckabee and his rehearsed FOX talking points after every act of carnage. We look back on the amazing visit of the Pope to Washington and the right wing attacks on the pontiff. We haul out two incredible tin foil hats. Also, as a Bill Show special, we "Meet the Outback" as we travel through Australia and get the Aussie take on the American election. We talk with Nick Seidenman, the actor and activist who has been in the middle of a showdown between a small Australian town and McDonald's Corporation.
Its back to the freak show. Trump mutters some gunk about why vaccines cause autism and Carly lies herself silly about Planned Parenthood. Yes, its a three hour leak of toxic waste that made you want to steal Ronald Reagan's airplane and fly to Cuba. Rick Perry ponders whether to return his PAC money as he skunks back to Texas with a cool 13 million. Clinton yucks it up while Uncle Bernie goes to the home of Jerry Faldwell and delivers the best speech of the Primaries (so far). Texan school administrators get crazy over an alarm clock from Radio Shack. We finally round up our tin foil hats. Hop aboard for the "The Bill Show"...Trumpnado Edition.
Its panic in the Hillary campaign as Bernie tops Hillary in New Hampshire and draws within the margin of error in Iowa. A Clinton pollster is quoted as saying,"It's 2008 all over again". We discuss the new poll results in the last two weeks and talk about what is becoming the craziest Democratic Primary since...well...2008. We discuss where mainstream candidate are getting their money, thanks to a new report from the FEC. We take a look at the new the GOP conservative dummy spit about Kim Davis, the crazy Kathy Bates look a like from the heartland. We reflect on Trumps plans to Nuke the Middle East in his first 100 days. We help Scott (Koch boy) Walker build a wall around Canada. We also check in with clips and comedy from the last two weeks in politics. Finally we turn down the comedy and discuss the terrible refugee problem facing the world, and the politicians who condone brutality.
