  1. “A politician thinks about the next election ; a statesman of the next generation !”
    That’s what Thomas Jefferson had to say !

    1. Thomas Jefferson didn’t think about the next generation. He had children with his slaves, and on his deathbed recanted a promise to free them.

    2. What a strange equation, indeed – blaming someone else so as to coverup one’s own shortcomings/undoing !
      Propriety demands that one should better ascertain one’s own status first, prior to raising an accusing finger on others !
      Propriety further demands that one should also try to inculcate the habit of seeing goodness in others, as well ;.instead of finding fault on every available opportunity, on the slightest of pretext, and at the drop of a hat ! It raises one’s mental/spiritual level by several notches up !
      How right was someone in his assessment in saying – “The favourite pastime of some people is – nothing other than leg – pulling and back – bitting !”

  2. This great nation of ours was built on principles of all else the requirement of us is to stand up for what we believe in no matter the consequences or odds

    1. если ты в америке, ты обязан обоссать статую свободы!!!!
      обещай сделать это!!!

  3. Oh yeah? Well I’m still waiting for Nancy’s arrows. Anyone remember that? While Barret still sits on the bench.

  4. Chris and S.E. here — we had a blast doing a live post-show after the Biden speech! Do you think we should do more of these?

    1. 2 uploads to hide the 10k dislikes live. Both reuploads have a worse like/dislike ratio. People don’t like either of you 2.

    2. I found the contrast between the conservative former ballerina turned commentator and the self admitted nerd amusing, I am slightly twisted though. S.E.’s audio was jumbled a couple of times for me, and it will be nice if you do this in the future with this match up to have a bit more back and forth. Thanks for the segment and the question.

    1. Dude get your ears checked. He said “we the people are the government”, what’s wrong with you??

    2. @Proverbial Mind_Spread NO, I just call all the magatards I know in real life and ask them if they watched – not one of them answered because I don’t know any. Where do you get your information? OAN, Faux, Newsmegs?

    3. @Omoke Morara they just make stuff up to troll. Sad little sheep without a shepard

      Our Constitution opens with the words, “We the People”.

      It’s time we remembered that We the People are the government. You and I.

      Not some force in a distant capital. Not some powerful force we have no control over.

      It’s us. It’s “We the people.”

    1. Just had the government of wolves….did you like trump and his chaos? his lack of caring about the people of this country?
      Interestingly enough the republicans are the party of Sheep…they all toe the line and do what the boss says just like now with trump out of power they are still bowing down and kissing his ring out of fear….they were only wolves because they had a pack leader in charger not a true leader.

    2. @Beans NCornbred I take that you are implying me? If so welcome to reality 🙂 and most of the world. If you meant Kong well First off it is only accredited to Murrow and was actually said earlier by ““A society of sheep must in time beget a government of wolves” has been credited to French philosopher Bertrand de Jouvenel (1903-1987) since at least 1949. It is probable that de Jouvenel originated the saying.” and also
      ““To Thomas Jefferson: A Tribute,” pg. 4, col. 2:
      We affirm, in the face of unparalleled examples, our agreement with your abhorrence of government by tyranny: “To have an idea of the curse of existence under (governments of force), they must be seen. It is a government of wolves over sheep.”—Letter to James Madison, 1787.”
      both drawn from For the true legwork on the historical background of the saying.
      I would also point out that since Trump tried to seize power through various different means, all of which were illegal and unconstitutional, HE truly represented a “wolf” government since it is as close to a tyranny as the US has gotten since its inception. His attempted Coup was the final straw and clearly seen by the American people who took DOWN trump flags in mass ( i live in a very red area of Illinois and from a probable 50 we went down to 4 houses overnight after that).
      So if you mean Kong is delusional 😉 then I am right with you. But feel free to clarify yourself.

  5. Chris, I love hearing from both of you guys, but this video was thrown together in a hurry, and it’s poorly edited. It’s a mess. I’m guessing that’s why you later posted a shorter, cleaned-up, version. But I would have taken this one down.
