Full Frontal Thursday: Brett Kavanaugh, Universal Health Care, & Chuck Jones

In today’s edition of “Full Frontal Thursday,” Sam talks about Brett Kavanaugh and how we don’t need another ’90s reboot of something completely gawd-awful. Anita Hill survived the shitty gauntlet she was run through. Has anything been learned since then? I think not.

Sam also makes the case for universal health care by debunking the bullshit spewed from the talking heads on FauxNews and other Nazi-supported state television and websites.

Last but not least, Mike Rubens travels to Indiana to speak with candidate Chuck Jones – and possibly get his ass kicked in a game of rummy.

Full Frontal Thursday: New Set, Minority Rule, and Gamifying the Midterms

In today’s long-awaited installment of “Full Frontal Thursday,” Sam is back with a new set and an app that will reward people for voting.

She also addresses the overt racism of gerrymandering, the oldest trick in the handbook of voter disenfranchisement.

Last Week Tonight: Felony Disenfranchisement

In today’s installment of “Last Week Tonight,” John discusses how people with felony convictions have to struggle to get basic civil rights back. Some states allow non-violent felons to regain some of their civil rights, including the right to vote. Florida is not one of them.

A person with a felony conviction for rape or murder is in a far different class than a person who has a felony conviction for possession of, or distribution of, marijuana. Yet, a white murderer is given a slap on the wrist and a conveyer belt back to “proper” society, while a black drug dealer gets shoved in a hole for the rest of their lives.

No surprise there.

Last Week Tonight: Trade

In today’s installment of “Last Week Tonight,” John talks about Trump’s ridiculous trade war. Trump doesn’t understand trade or basic economics. He really doesn’t understand much of anything relevant.

That’s what “great genes” and “high education” looks like.

Full Frontal Thursday: Fascist-watch & Food Carts

In today’s edition of “Full Frontal Thursday,” Sam acknowledges the fact that fascists have been shoving their alternative facts and alternative realities into mainstream things for some time, including politics. She decides to shine the spotlight on some of the up-and-comers who finally removed their bedsheets and pointy hats.

She also points out the fact that undocumented immigrants work in the hospitality industry, which includes cleaning up hotel rooms and preparing food. If you hate immigrants then here’s a suggestion: cook your own fucking food at home and don’t go out to eat anywhere. I would love to have a dining experience which didn’t involve seeing some fat, inbred, Trump-supporting tub of goo shoveling mountains of mashed potatoes into its slobbering gob.

Sam ends the show with a little hint about her show’s look. I guess she’s changing the set in September and called on her extended family to help.

Last Week Tonight: Astroturfing

In today’s installment of “Last Week Tonight,” John discusses the shady, deceitful practice known as astroturfing. This occurs when organizations hire fake advocates who then create an elaborate illusion of supportive numbers for their cause or message. This practice is something that a lot of bloggers utilize, from what I’ve observed.

Full Frontal Thursday: Bad Boy Roundup, Pregnancy Discrimination, & Crashing Sean Spicer’s Book Tour

In today’s installment of “Full Frontal Thursday,” Sam talks about Paul Manafort’s trial. Jackets made of ostrich or python skin which cost more than a small car? Classy.

Next, she talks about pregnancy discrimination in certain workplaces. I was never pregnant during or after being employed 15+ years in various office environments, but was definitely discriminated against. The women who did get pregnant had no problems getting time off or promotions, either. That doesn’t mean that pregnant women aren’t regularly given the shaft, but the corporations I worked for seemed to have no issues with pregnant women.

Former White House press secretary Sean Spicer is working on the next chapter of his life by writing a shitty book about his time spent lying to the press and the American people on behalf of his corrupt, criminal former boss. Sam’s team followed him on his book tour.

Last Week Tonight: Prosecutors

In today’s edition of “Last Week Tonight,” John Oliver talks about prosecutors and the ways they use or misuse their powers in the criminal justice system.
