Glenn Kage joins Mark Bland and Gary Weed to discuss UNIONS and their stance in the wake of the Janus decision by the Supreme Court of the US. 

Glenn is a veteran of the Unions in the state of Missouri and currently the President of the Local UAW hall in Wentzville, MO.  He also presides over 4000 people as well as thousands of other retired Union employees. Glenn discusses his career in the Union and with the auto industry, as well as his thoughts on the state of the union today.

This leads to a discussion about hobbies and things in peoples lives, when Mark, whose been searching for a rant he had, hears that Glenn is into crossfit which sends Mark off on a diatribe about crossfitters and their lifestyle and all of it (nothing personal to Glenn of course).

Eventually the original rant Mark had about Liberals helping each other out comes to the surface. Mark reached out to form some alliances and the response he heard was a telling sign of where the mindset of hardcore liberals and democrats are at. Take a listen and find out the results...

Finally Glenn hits the famous Q show Hot Seat to answer some questions and open up about himself a little more. 

Enjoy all this and so much more on the new Q!

"What About-ism's"....seems to be the only thing a certain section of political supporters can do to keep their shallow ideals and beliefs relevant. Cause everything for them is steeped in the past and what happened in ancient times that are not relevant to the present. 

Jason Kull and Jonathan May join the show this week to discuss these things that just refuse to go away from the past.  But that is on the heels of a historic week of keeping kids separated from the families while stuck in a foreign country they are not from and have no residency in. But then on the back side, and just two days after claiming "I don't have any power to help"...Donald Trump signs a executive order to fix the separation issue at the border. One that he kinda created as a platform and enforced. 

This leads to a discussion about how Trump tends to create issues and fix them so he can have a check in the win column. He also tends to prop up things that are useless as a win too, like signing a friendship agreement with North Korea who was never the issue. 

Also the guys discuss drugged up river eels and how their coke habits are getting way outta control.

Anthony Rogers and Gary Weed join the show to discuss how Trump met with Kim Jong Un in Singapore to sign a "friendship agreement" (not a peace treaty).  At this point, the North Koreans are more worried about peace with the USA than stopping the War between them and South Korea. So did it go well? We discuss all the intricacies and everything regarding this historic summit.

Gary Weed hit Mark up earlier in the week with meme from the internet that intrigued him. It said "You have $100 and you have to put a block party together with these listed bands and their prices, who do you pick?"  So Mark decided to discuss their picks live on the show, who would you pick...listen and figure it out.

But the most surprising moment was when Anthony Rogers, the actor extraordinaire, explained that he has access and the number for the famous Bill Murray 1-800 number.  It's well known that Murray takes voicemails off the line and makes his business decisions off of that. So the guys use Anthony's phone and call Bill directly to pitch coming on the Q and being interviewed.

Jonathan May and Gary Weed join the show to discuss the big topics of the week. So you ask, why is the show named Channing Tatum...what happened with him this week. Well nothing happened with him this week at all unless your Jonathan May and your head is stuck in the gutter.  Gary once again starts the show off with an interesting question that makes Mark question everything in his world. 

Eric Greitens decided that being a bad person and being watched and attacked for it was enough. He stepped down as Governor of the state of Missouri after being accused of raping and sexually assaulting a female. The guys touch on it but, in typical moderate fashion, there is really nothing more to say. It's in the past now and will stay there. Instead the guys focus on discussing Roseanne losing her show on ABC and how she could have avoided it.

Finally Jonathan May is not liking this Drake vs. Pusha T beef and Mark is clueless along with Gary.  Jon updates them and gives the newest piece of the beef. A child exists and has been outed....do Mark and Gary agree with Drake or Pusha T. Find out on this episode of The Q.
