    The Problem With Guns (and Domestic Abusers)

    The Problem With Guns (and Domestic Abusers)

    Domestic violence is a predictor for gun violence, yet we have a problem enforcing laws that strip firearms from domestic abusers. Jon talks with head writer Chelsea Devantez about her experiences with these issues, possible solutions...and also, somehow, puppet TV shows from the '70s. Jon then talks with bounce musician Big Freedia about her documentary, Freedia Got a Gun, and how gun violence has affected her hometown of New Orleans.

Fred and barneeee!

I’ve been listening to your show for close to a year now I’ve almost listen to every podcast it to you and then coming serenade even know Mr. coming has several for lack on joe only could be doing more so let’s say Dan has quiet a new accomplishment & substantial amount more than you have but you’re still a great comedian and very funny so I don’t know how it is your not on a solo project or more but I would add it to all my podcast listening devices . Spotify, apple(fav) ,pod-bean as well as apple stand-alone watches for this reason . And I will say I have all of the most expensive and powerful functioning mobiles outs to date Z Ike in the apple right now and then the most hacked . Why you may not care but I’ll tell . This iphone13 is a great phone and now has a processor completely diverse and a beast with only 4 gb of phone ram and 256 while Samsung ultras notes and the new s series with a pen have a 16 gb and half a tb of star age . 2 different types of phones and codes too . So if you a apple fan or an android fan then they are on league with each other hand in hand. Hit me up if you have any questions on tech issues it’s what I do and I’m not that bad since I’m opening my first store for not just screen replacement and operations but I’m backing myself so I’ll have full ownership of it all down the line. As we know it is the best way to start more than average product for any user plus I will be providing and algorithms to help pay a way to fully secure access to your phone and mail app .name and reverse course code for what trackers do and mostly google . The #1 . I’ve started to learn the fire base code and dart . Flutter and others that google code stolen from mid kids who were never payed . So the pixel is there best and now I’ll get a pixel 6 now it has alll google parts even whitchappel chip . I promise you will see me paired up with Elon or lex b to help pay the way for better cheaper machines .
Well thanks for listening for my bull crap for this long about tech stuff I’m just keeping you informed because U2 will fall be the first ones to receive some of my modified products the last thing modified Being as say anyone can bring me a phone like a Samsung 9 plus or note 8 and above I’ll be able to replace screens to the best like invictus or putting a 865plus or an 888 snapdragon processor and larger battery. Wireless charger with my own design of a wireless charging Center 20 in by 20 in pad with a space of max 3 ft away from plug in charging port for 3 way fuctunable plowed supply . NFC. Bluetooth and nano extenders .
Goddamn finally I’m done . Love you guys and always use protection……………………… vpn or vlan

Second Variety ,

10/27/21 Episode

The Our Not-So-Free Market Episode is factual and refreshing in the many truths presented which seems so difficult to find these days amidst the many thriving lies, propaganda, and conspiracy theories currently filling people’s heads.

This podcast offers topics like the October 27 Episode referenced that will further expand one’s knowledge, to become a more independent thinker, better informed on important economic matters without the need to stay a joiner, a follower of mindlessly lazy partisan tribalism beliefs.

Who is there? ,

Welcome Back My Old Friend.

It’s great to see and hear Jon Stewart. He has a way to get straight to the point and use a little humor here and there while being serious about the topic.
