2PP090 – 18 July 2013


At the start today, Arthur explains what’s been up with the delays and such. Then, we begin this episode with Jason telling us about his going to the Paul McCartney concert recently (video above).

We spend a little time talking about Internet difficulties. It should be easier to change email addresses. It’s been awhile since we recorded, so when we move onto politics, we have a lot to say. We begin with the Supreme Court rulings we missed out on talking about at the time. This leads to talk about immigration reform and Republican chicanery.

The last topic is THAT trial. We don’t agree about all aspects.

Everyone’s welcome to leave a comment—agree or disagree!

    I certainly understand going to the other side of the street when I see a group of black youth. I do, and I also move when I see a group of white youth or young adults. It’s the pack mentality I fear. http://gawker.com/video-of-violent-rioting-surfers-shows-white-culture-o-954939719

    I’m also jealous as hell of Jason getting to see Macca.

    Sad to see that William Scranton died. A moderate to liberal Republican, when such things were possible.

    My, your comments page, indeed the main page, was loading slowly. Ignore the first, but note the second comment (which are NOT identical.)

  4. Roger Green says:

    That said, Jason, that group of young black men walking down to street to work on that Habitat house, seeing you crossing the street, are going to sense your fear and think, “Nope, nothing has changed in America.” So you may have justification, but it still has unintended consequences. And they WILL see you, just like they (and I have) seen the merchant following them the minute they (and I) enter the store.

  5. Roger Green says:

    Jason- so DC is a predominately black city. Is it not statistically LIKELY that if you were to be attacked, it would be by black people? If you had been attacked by white people, would this make you afraid of THEM? (My this is FUN – I wake up with more things to ask.) And Arthur – this is harder because it’s theoretical. How would you f=react to being attacked by a group of Maori? Would this mean that THEY were more dangerous to you?

  6. John J Jewett says:

    Just wanted to leave a comment about Sir. Paul.
    I saw him in Boston on July 9th at Fenway Park. Like Jason said WOW! The only thing that would have made the evening more spectacular would have been if the sky had been clear and we would have seen the stars.
