Last Week Tonight: Drain the Swamp

In today’s installment of “Last Week Tonight,” John discusses how trump’s “drain the swamp” lie is just that. A lie.

Some people seem to love liars and the hateful bullshit they spew. Go figure.

Last Week Tonight: Family Separation

In today’s installment of “Last Week Tonight,” John talks about the unnecessary and racist policy of family separation, which has caused hundreds of children needless and long-lasting trauma.

Fear-mongering and racism have been the hallmark of this administration since the thing descended the escalator and announced that it was running for president. All of that has exploded now that it resides at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

Last Week Tonight: State Attorneys General

In today’s installment of “Last Week Tonight,” John discusses the upcoming election and focuses on State Attorneys General. The one in my state isn’t up for re-election this year, but over 30 other states will be choosing a new one or keeping their incumbent.

Last Week Tonight: Saudi Arabia

In today’s installment of “Last Week Tonight,” John puts the focus on Saudi Arabia and the uncomfortably close relationship between that country and the USA.

For decades, administrations have been turning a blind eye to the human rights violations that Saudi Arabia blatantly perpetrates. It all comes down to money, proving that a good number of people will do the most horrific things to others for a little bit of cabbage.

Last Week Tonight: Brazilian Elections

In today’s installment of “Last Week Tonight,” John talks about the presidential election in Brazil. Looks like that country is ready to have its own version of the Drumpf steering them off of the nearest cliff.

Last Week Tonight: Brett Kavanaugh

In today’s installment of “Last Week Tonight,” John discusses the shitstorm surrounding Brett Kavanaugh in more detail than Sam Bee did last week. Kavanaugh is clearly unfit to be on the Supreme Court, and his temperament and personality display that quite clearly.

His attitude is identical to the assholes and trolls one encounters in social media, online games, and other internet-based encounters. None of them are fit for employment in any public-service position, either.

Last Week Tonight: Facebook

In today’s installment of “Last Week Tonight,” John talks about Facebook and how it is being used to spread hate and misinformation in other countries, just as it is used here in the United States.

Most “social” medial platforms are full of toxic people spreading their hateful lies. It isn’t limited to Facebook by any means.

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: 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.
