Dj Gelner a well known STL lawyer/author jumps back on to the show to break down the arrogance and attitude of bicycle riders.  Their constant need to cut people off, tell you that you are #1 and many other things that get under the skin of both Mark and DJ. This also leads to a discussion about people with the "Please Watch for Motorcycles" stickers on the back of their cars.  All of them tend to have attitude that is misplaced especially considering the show down between a 2500 lb car and a 30 lbs bike.

Next up Mark and DJ break down the Democratic debate and talk about some of the highlights...but this brings Mark around to talk with DJ about who he's backing in the election and of course The Donald comes up.  Mark takes it to DJ about Trump and why republicans tend to favor this man.  DJ brings up Obama and some of his decisions versus the type that Trump could make.  Will it be better for nation? Is Trump a worthy candidate and someone that deserves a solid viable look when it comes election time? All this and more is answered on the newest episode of the Q. 

Finally we definitely do some Overtime and welcome our most direct and eye opening Letter from a Listener in quite sometime.  Listen in and figure out how you would answer.

On this episode of the Q, Producer Bobby begins his sabbatical so Mark has to dig deep and bring back Justin Deming (@deyemofo) and Andy Echele to resume hosting duties while the producer is away.

This is an interesting mix because Mark immediately takes ire with something that Andy and another social friend posted regarding POTUS and misinformation.  Andy being the Former military guy has an issue with Barack Obama not properly saluting marines as he disembarks from Marine 1.  Mark and Justin then dig deeper and the discussion goes past the video and into how good of a job POTUS has been doing the past 7 years.  Ofcourse everyone has a say and no one is backing down which makes this a intense half hour you don't want to miss.

Then the guys get back on format and talk about a school that refused an inhaler to a choking student simply cause they didn't know it had been prescribed and the school has a protocol to adhere to. Then its on to Edward Snowden whose in the news again cause he joined twitter and immediately started right back up influencing people via his new page.  This pisses Mark off cause he believes that Snowden doesn't deserve popularity for what he did.  

All this and Overtime where we discuss Retro Gaming! If you like video games and talking about old NES, the the Overtime is what you want to listen to.
