It's been a minute, but DJ Gelner (author) joins the Q for another round in the world of politics and pop culture. Immediately the show starts ripping and roaring right out the gate with Gelner telling guest Andy Echele about his work with GothamClub.com, a dating site for guys to get tips about women. Andy then lets on about how he is the kink master of all kink and starts describing all his sex capades in an attempt to make Mark and DJ impressed. They seemed like they were!

Then Mark asks the question of the show...Is the country more divided than ever, or is the media trying to make it look like that.  Mark, Andy and DJ discuss which leads to what the breakdown divide looks like and some of the components.  Do they figure out if it's truly divided or not, find out! 

Finally the guys discuss some questions with Gelner since he hasn't been to the newer studio, so he needs to be run through the ringer. This brings up an interesting story that perks Mark back into the idea that there are natural dividers in society and Gelner's topic is one of them.

Halloween is just around the corner and Jason Kull joins Mark to discuss some of the greatest horror films of all times.  The guys read through a list of the greatest horror movies you should know about and add in those films they think you should see.

Plus, Trump is on a tear again and it's discussed about his need to repeal and replace healthcare.  Signing executive orders just like Obama did (and all the presidents before him), Trump takes away the ability to have pre-existing conditions guarded from disclosure while signing up. So having one means that they can drop you from coverage or deny you coverage at a new company. It's a dagger into the heart of many and the guys discuss it in glorious detail and explain how we got to this problem in our country. 

Finally, Taxes are a hot issue and should we pay them? Are they too high?  Mark and Jason discuss why we have them and how people should look at taxing in 2017.

Las Vegas was the most recent outbreak of gun violence the entire country is talking about and Mark and Andy Echele break down whether there should or should not be gun control. With so many people discussing each time something happens, it's hard to turn away and say nothing. Mark breaks out the idea that this will never go away and how much it will affect the Presidency of Trump.

Next up, Mark discusses how the word "snowflake" is improperly used in the lexicon of 2017 and why conservative voters gravitate towards using it. Mark then discusses with Andy about DACA kids and illegal immigration and why there shouldn't be as much focus and worry about illegals as the media and Trump would like for you to believe. 

Finally mark discusses the whole vibe of our forefathers and how they landed in our country. People usually stop at Washington and 1776 as their forefathers, but Mark makes a valiant plea for the forefathers to be the Pilgrims. 

All this and much more on the new Q!

Have you ever been to Reddit and looked around on the subreddits out of interest? Well Mark has and talks with Jason Kull and Producer Bobby about the justice porn subreddit. Mark discusses how the video and ideals on the subreddit are interchangeable with certain blog stories from Conservative blog websites. There is a ton of correlation and Mark explains how they use it in regards to keeping their fan bases close by and primed for anger.

Also, Trump doesn't really care for Puerto Rico's mayor or the people of the country.  He has tweeted out many times since the hurricane disasters to other locales but not until a week later did Trump finally get around to helping the people of Puerto Rico...then he called them lazy and wanted everything done for them.  The guys discuss a little about this because honestly it's difficult to keep up with Trump constantly starting issue and fist fights with everyone daily. 

Finally, the guys stumble upon a game when they try and guess the User rating score for a Fast and Furious movie.
