Well it happened....McGregor fought 40 yr old Floyd MONEY Mayweather and it delivered. Conor and Floyd put on a show up till the main event happened and then they put on one more show for everyone.  There was nobody that walked away unhappy with the fight at all.  Jason Kull and Producer Bobby join Mark to discuss the aftermath of the MONEY FIGHT and what it means for Floyd's legacy and where McGregor can go from here.

Then we move on to the pardoning of former Sheriff Joe Arpaio by President Trump. Trump had made claims multiple times explaining that he would not pardon the lawman, but that changed when during Hurricane Harvey hitting Texas, he quietly made it happen behind the scenes. This is Trump M.O. to a "T".  Arpaio didn't deserve a pardoning and the guys discuss how this was mishandled and why Joe should serve out the 6 month potential sentence on the table.

Tony Cabral joins the show for the first time in a long while.  First up the two guys discuss this whole Trump phenomena and how we exactly got to this point. Discussing Colbert and Kimmel recently taken it to Trump and whether or not they were just in their statements. 

Next the aura of the Confederacy still being a talking point after a lady was killed in Charlottesville and more protesting in Boston.  Is there value to that rag the Confederates call a flag?  What do statues have to do with 2017? And how long will this petulant baby whining the conservatives are constantly doing about their freedom of things.  At this point it seems like everything has been taken away from them and really nothing has. Plus INDIANS/NATIVE AMERICANS get discussed.

Finally Mark and Tony dig into a solid discussion of Jean Twenge new book I-Gen and an interview Tony saw regarding the breakdown of what this newest generation definition means. But where exactly does Gen-X, Gen-Y/millennials and the I-Gen start and stop. 

All this and much, much more on this episode of The Q!

Oh it is a good week according to White Nationalist trump supporters.  They came out in droves to the university of Virginia in Charlottesville.  All because a Civil War monument was being removed from the school grounds.  KKK, Skinheads, Nazi sympathizers and White Nationalist (aka ALT-Right) descended on the school grounds the night before and were dressed like yuppie college kids carrying Tiki Torches.  All because they can't reserve their racism and bigotry anymore.  They are out and they are quite proud. But then someone drove a car into a crowd and killed a person along with two cops that also died. Jason Kull and Producer Bobby sit in to discuss all the events.

Then we switch gears to World War 3 and the potential for it ignite with President Trump in a war of words and nuclear showing off with Kim Jong Un of North Korea.  KJU has threatened to destroy the island of Guam and is basically throwing a middle finger to the world.  Should we accept the invite and level their country or do we sit back and wait for what will happen.  The guys discuss at length the nuclear threats and this whole situation.

Mueller impaneled a Grand Jury  and Mark thinks this protects him against any chance that Trump could fire him.

Then, Mark brings up a facebook post regarding Sean Vincent and something he said to the affect of "people should handle their personal finances better". Jason, Mark and Shawn discuss how this affects people. It jogs Mark's memory regarding the 2008 crash and how a lack of handling personal finanace with a realistic view is what lead to the crash. Also Mark reads a note left to a waitress about blue lives matter.  Mark discusses the first amendment and the value of blue lives matter.
