Last Week Tonight: Rehab

In today’s edition of “Last Week Tonight,” John puts the spotlight on the rehab industry and how it is a revolving-door of scams operated by bullshit artists out to con the last dime from any sloppy addict. They guy who looked like Matt Lauer fucked a pair of sunglasses was certainly not hurting for money, evidenced by his cocaine-fueled attitude and steroid-enhanced biceps! ROFL

I’ve seen the commercial for that Passages place. Pax Prentiss stating that “Passages works. I should know. I was an addict for 10 years. Now, I’m not.” Nothing said about the treatment they offer. Just scenes of people working out, doing yoga, and getting acupuncture. That should be a red flag for anyone looking for real treatment, yes?

Then again, there are plenty of scammers out there who offer help and claim to have the answer to anything. The only answer they don’t have is how much money they expect you to cough up before they deign to offer said help. Even then, it is only pretense.

Last Week Tonight: Venezuela

In today’s installment of “Last Week Tonight,” John puts the spotlight on Venezuela. That country is having an election next week and John shows us what the limited option is for the people there.

Last Week Tonight: Rudy Giuliani

In this edition of “Last Week Tonight,” John Oliver shows the clueless people that Rudy Giuliani’s unhinged behavior has been evident since before 11 September of 2001. Rudy the ghoul used the rotting corpse of “9/11” to maintain popularity and relevance. Reminds me of the needy, desperate attention-whores on Face-Twit-o-Gram and in the blog-o-sphere!

I love the way John has bought various domain names. Others do similar things for more sinister means.

They make navigating the internet an interesting experience. One has to look out for spam sites along with spam email notifications.

Last Week Tonight: Iran Deal

In today’s edition of “Last Week Tonight,” John Oliver talks about the Iran Deal and how Baby-Hands McDrumpf is most likely going to cram it down the shitter like everything else he gets his tiny hands on, including the presidency.

Happy birthday, John! Keep up the awesome work.

Last Week Tonight: Corporate Taxes

In today’s installment of “Last Week Tonight,” John Oliver talks about how corporations are able to pay less taxes than the average working-class American citizen.

Don’t forget this little fact, speaking of tax season: Churches are tax-exempt. Why, then, do they constantly ask for donations?

Just a thought to mull over.

Last Week Tonight: Immigration Courts

In today’s installment of “Last Week Tonight,” John Oliver puts the spotlight on immigration courts. If you think that the justice system in the USA is damaged, you ain’t seen nothing yet.

What a travesty.

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.

Spring Forward

Daylight Saving Time is upon some of us again. Had to set the clocks ahead one hour since it is time to “spring forward.”

Daylight Saving Time used to begin in April and end in October. Now it begins in March and ends in November. Here in the USA, two states don’t recognize this biannual time change. There are a few countries which don’t participate, either.

John Oliver has a short little piece about Daylight Saving Time which is pretty good.

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.
