Outstanding episode

Tonight I learned how to discuss politics with my wife. How to compare the current political situation to what it’s like to deal with a toddler. This might work! This isn’t a sexist statement. I’m the house manager.

Thanks!

Excellent discussion of 12 Angry Men and parallel to issues today!

LOL The only answer to the Fox Network view of the world.

How else can any US citizen make any sense of the insanity that we define as the presidency. Laughlin brings some respite from the fear mongering we are all exposed to.
A breath of fresh air ( at least until the air becomes unbreathable due to presidential regulatory action). Always a diverse offering of commentary on the events of the day/week/month. These are truly gifted journalists that shine light into the Dark abyss of our duly elected president activities. Always look forward to the next episode.
