Talk Like A Pirate Day

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.

Last Week Tonight: Gene Editing

In today’s edition of “Last Week Tonight,” John talks about the latest trend in genetic engineering and neo-eugenics which is called CRISPR.

Genetic engineering and designer babies are nothing new. It’s pretty obvious who will be shelling out money for the DIY CRISPR kits.

Like anything else STEM-related, this technology has power for good. Unfortunately, freaks will use it for something sexual because the socially inept have an obsessive need to turn everything into a dating site.

Last Week Tonight: Mexican Elections

In today’s edition of “Last Week Tonight,” John talks about the upcoming elections in Mexico. Santa Claus also makes a special guest appearance.

Last Week Tonight: Xi Jinping

In today’s edition of “Last Week Tonight,” John shines the spotlight on China and its now emperor-for-life, Xi Jinping. The social scoring thing reminds me of the episode of “The Orville” titled “Majority Rule.”

Last Week Tonight: Stupid Watergate II

In today’s edition of “Last Week Tonight,” John revisits the Mueller investigation into the corruption and collusion of the Drumpf and his campaign. Giuliani makes the rounds and screams “witch hunt!” at every possible opportunity, ignoring the facts that the investigation has resulted in arrests and guilty pleas.

Drumpf’s fanatics receive their daily dose of propaganda from FauxNews, yet don’t see the irony of calling every other media outlet “fake news.” That’s cognitive dissonance in action. Comes from residing in an echo chamber which, more often than not lately, appears to be the comfort zone of far too many.

Those damaged people carry their baggage and spew their shit everywhere they can. Even in online games which are supposed to be a fun break from the real-life issues of others.

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: 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: Crisis Pregnancy Centers

In this edition of “Last Week Tonight,” John exposes the deception practiced by so-called “Crisis Pregnancy Centers,” which are vehemently against women’s rights to choose.

The tactics those places use are eerily similar to online sites which promise medical treatment and / or counseling, but are really a cover for some con artist to get money for nothing.
