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: 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.

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.

Full Frontal Thursday: Q Anon, Printable Guns, & Male Sexual Abuse

In today’s installment of “Full Frontal Thursday,” Sam outs Q Anon, the most recent shithole site spewing out rancid conspiracy theories that mindless inbred shut-ins devour and believe without question.

Next, she points out the obvious fact that men can be victims of sexual assault, too. Men who have been assaulted are most likely to have been assaulted by other men, which is something that goes in the “no shit, Sherlock” file. Catholic priests and Penn State University employees are just the tip of that scummy iceberg.

A creepy, whites-only “space cult” calling itself Asgardia is also featured. The fact that people don’t realize that cults tend to come to bad ends and are eager to join these exclusive cliques continues to fascinate me. I wonder what mindset and psychology is behind that? Don’t answer. That was strictly a rhetorical question which I already know the answer to.

Finally, she does a great P. S. A. with Terry Crews, a man who has a great sense of humour and really knows how to be funny.

Last Week Tonight: Workplace Sexual Harassment

“Last Week Tonight” returns with new episodes and the first one is about sexual harassment in the workplace. In today’s installment, John talks with Anita Hill, one of the most well-known examples and they discuss the most rampant logical fallacies and roadblocks thrown up to derail the conversation.

The conversation about sexual harassment and the #MeToo movement gets derailed in exactly the same ways as the conversation about race does. Quite a fascinating parallel.
