Last Week Tonight: Mike Pence

In this edition of “Last Week Tonight,” John shines the spotlight on Vice President Mike Pence. The Drumpf is bad enough. Pence is almost worse, but that’s like comparing dying in a fire to dying in a building collapse.

His pet rabbit, Marlon Bundo, just signed a book deal. That shows that hard work has nothing to do with publishing a book. It’s all about who you know and who is willing to do the P. R. for you. The amount of remedial reading saturating the market proves it.

On a side note, Mike Pence must have done an online course on evading and avoiding questions, which seems to have been attended by a few bloggers out there. Just sayin’.


Last Week Tonight: Cryptocurrencies

In this latest installment of “Last Week Tonight,” John talks about cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin, the coders creating same, and how “pump and dump” isn’t unique to this latest get-rich-quick scheme. Interesting information.

Last Week Tonight: NRA-TV

In this edition of “Last Week Tonight,” John Oliver educates us on a little-known internet channel called “NRA Television.” I’d only heard about it over the past couple of days.

I used to be a member of the National Rifle Association. I had a 3-year membership 20 years ago. Propaganda delivered to my mailbox on a weekly basis. I had a three-inch stack of their ridiculous bumper-stickers by the time I quit, which I donated to the local Army National Guard office.

This bears repeating: The NRA is not a gun-rights organization, looking out for the interests of gun owners in America. Colion Noir, their token Black representative, should really take a closer look at the history of the NRA. He won’t because they pay him too well. Paid shills tend to ignore the obvious facts, much like Omarosa did.

Last Week Tonight: Italian Election

In this installment of “Last Week Tonight,” John Oliver points out the fact that America isn’t the only country dealing with conspiracy theories and neo-fascism when it comes to politics and elections. That shithole country, Italy, is the just latest one to do so.


Last Week Tonight: Drumpf vs. the World

I’ve missed “Last Week Tonight” and am glad that John Oliver is back with brand-new episodes.

In this first installment since November 2017, John takes a look at how America’s reputation worldwide has taken a major downturn since the orange-haired Commander-In-Cheat took over.

America isn’t perfect, but it is a damned sight better than some other countries: those shitholes of Italy, Australia, and Canuckistan, to name a few.


Net Neutrality Redux

Just in case you’ve forgotten what the big fuss is over net neutrality, here are three “Last Week Tonight” clips for your viewing pleasure.


Last Week Tonight: Little Donny’s First Year

In this installment of “Last Week Tonight,” which will be the last one of 2017, John Oliver looks back at the Drumpf’s first year in office. Has it only been a year since people completely threw intelligence and common sense out of the window? It certainly feels much, much longer!

I’d have to say that I’m a bit disappointed to have lost acquaintances due to politics, but not surprised. The people who claimed to desire open, civil dialogue are the same people who are using and normalizing the Drumpf’s tactics. It is what it is. Fortunately, this, too, shall pass! I remain hopeful, and will keep on keeping on.


Last Week Tonight: Economic Development

In this installment of “Last Week Tonight,” John talks about economic development. Massive financial incentives are offered to multi-billion dollar corporations in order to lure them to communities, with the hope that “trickle-down” economics will miraculously work this time around. With no accountability, however, are those corporations really beneficial? How many jobs have those self-described “job creators” actually created?

Are they jobs which will keep you in servitude for the rest of your life, or are they rewarding careers which will help you live, and enjoy, a happy, healthy life?



Last Week Tonight: Floods

In this installment of “Last Week Tonight,” John talks about flooding, how it will get steadily worse, and how insurance companies have benefited from those natural disasters.

Last Week Tonight: Multilevel Marketing (7 November 2016)

In this 2016 installment of “Last Week Tonight,” John talks about the predatory practices of multilevel marketing companies such as AmWay, Mary Kay Cosmetics, Herbalife, and Youngevity, to name a few. One of my brothers has fallen victim to these pyramid schemes, in spite of the warnings from myself and other siblings. It is sad to see that he lost an excellent job at a very large company to devote his failing energy to these scams. It nauseates me when I see people doing the exact same thing with sites like WordPress or Facebook – which is why I avoid those pages like the plague.
