    John and Deuce Talk Politics | Episode 119

    In this episode titled "John and Deuce Talk Politics" on the Brand X Podcast, hosts Deuce and John Jamingo delve into various political topics and share their opinions and observations. They discuss their presence on Discord, a platform they describe as a Facebook-like space without censorship, and encourage listeners to join their Discord server by using the invite link in the show notes. They also mention their availability on Twitter and through email.
    Throughout the episode, the hosts express their criticism of a certain individual for not taking a particular action, suggesting that this inaction has led to the current situation regarding the COVID jab. They argue that if an alternative treatment for the issue had been available, emergency use authorization for the jab wouldn't have been granted. They imply that the person they are discussing backed down and started promoting the jab instead, cautioning that negative consequences associated with the jab could be used against them.
    The hosts believe that there are hidden motivations behind the push to administer the jab to as many people as possible and share their distrust of Democrats and Communists. They also speculate about the physical capabilities of the current president, referencing incidents in Vietnam where he struggled with using a microphone and appeared disoriented on stage.
    Deuce, who sometimes avoids political discussions, joins in this episode, showing an interest in talking about politics. The episode is split into two parts, with the first part focusing on politics and Republican candidates while the second episode covers different topics. The hosts emphasize their reliance on hard data to make decisions and discuss the challenges of having 50 states with varying approaches to the COVID situation. They commend Governor DeSantis for choosing a similar approach to that of Sweden.
    They address criticisms directed at Donald Trump, acknowledging his mistakes but disagreeing with some of the backlash he received. The hosts recount a situation where someone was forcefully removed and fired for not upholding the Constitution, and they reference discussions by Megan Kelly, Glenn Beck, and Alan Dershowitz about Joe Biden and ongoing impeachment proceedings.
    Amidst their political discussions, the hosts express their desire for a long and happy life for themselves, their children, and others. They mention Tim Scott and suggest that he should openly admit his homosexuality, asking to speak to his girlfriend in Canada. They praise Donald Trump for his accomplishments and assert that he was tricked into fast-tracking the COVID jab, suggesting that he could have promoted alternative treatments instead.
    In an unexpected tangent, the hosts share an anecdote about a situation involving eating a banana that did not belong to them, highlighting the importance of not taking what isn't theirs. They also delve into topics like the opening of the country's borders and the perception that the Democratic Party historically needs a permanent underdog, particularly the black population.
    Ultimately, while critical of certain individuals and political parties, the hosts acknowledge that mistakes can be made by anyone. They express frustration with biased discussions, desire more open debates, and question the media's coverage of COVID deaths, arguing for a broader perspective on causes of mortality during this time.

First up, we have a special treat for you!

    As we venture into the episode, Deuce and John explore the evolving music industry. They discuss the limited number of modern artists who can fill large concert venues, such as Taylor Swift, Beyonce, and Kanye West. They reminisce about their own experiences growing up when many artists had the power to pack stadiums. They even touch on the legendary "dinosaur bands" like Aerosmith and The Who, who can still draw massive crowds. Plus, they talk about Metallica and Kiss's farewell tours, making it a conversation you won't want to miss.
    Switching gears, our hosts bring their unique perspectives to the world of dating. Deuce shares his own experience with dating after divorce, particularly in the realm of online dating. If you're looking for some first-date advice, Deuce suggests skipping the usual dinner routine and opting for a casual atmosphere like a bar or coffee shop. Discover why he believes this can set the stage for a more enjoyable and relaxed experience.
    In the midst of all the music and dating discussions, Deuce and John don't shy away from current events. They express their concerns about Congress and its handling of a bribery allegation against Joe Biden. With an impeachment inquiry finally initiated, they discuss the potential consequences and the panic surrounding this political development. As always, our hosts take a trip down memory lane. Remember MTV? They discuss how MTV revolutionized the music industry and changed consumer behavior. Before MTV, kids were spending their money on video games like Space Invaders, Space Wars, Gallica, and Defender. But with the introduction of MTV, the focus shifted back to buying albums, cassettes, and CDs. It's a fascinating exploration of the impact of music videos on popular culture.
    But wait, there's more! Deuce shares some intriguing anecdotes from his past, including encounters at the Philadelphia Electric Company and a Monday Night Football game. He reflects on how times have changed and how his comments would be received differently today.

Favorite podcast

Even tho I drive a green Kia soul I am smart enough to know this is the best podcast around.

BoomeR_BoB ,

He’s no BoomerBob but…

Deuce flexes his unfair advantages to spite Bob in every episode. Deuce is far more informed, way more accomplished in life and a much better speaker than Bob is but… Bob does those parodies.
If you’re from south Jersey and like to hear a phone call recorded and released as a podcast, this is a must-listen.
