2PP109 – 23 July 2015

2pp_album_art_110x1101.jpgThis a NEW episode, recorded just a few days ago! Well, it had to happen sooner or later. Unfortunately, there’s a weird background noise at some points. I guess maybe we can have new, or we can have perfect…

We start out talking about the Republican Clown Bus, especially Trump. The news media’s obsession with Trump has meant that other stories are being missed. Also, other candidates can’t get any attention whatsoever. We even talk a bit about the Democrats. But, we also talk about some of the challenges that Republicans face, especially the party’s attitude toward immigration reform. It leads us to talking about making poor people peeing in a cup.

We thought we were done, but no! One more topic: The death of A&P. And also about Frango mints. It’s all about numbers on a balance sheet, the rest be damned. Arthur thinks there HAS to be a better way to raise finance for corporations.

One last thing! A site about all the candidates running for president.

Everyone’s welcome to leave a comment (agree or disagree!).

    Great show and I’m so glad to hear you both on the podcast again! I completely agree that Trump is turning the GOP Primary process into a clown show and reality show! I’m sitting back with popcorn watching all of the candidates drive the party into the ditch for 2016. Keep up the great shows!
