Gary Weed and Mark Bland are lonely this week but Trump made sure to give them something to talk about. Well not Trump himself, but Robert Mueller delivered the long awaited Trump Russian Investigation to William Barr the AG of the US. Barr then put out a 4 page summary explaining what the gist of the findings were. Trump did not collude with Russian regarding the 2016 election. So he is clear. Which is fine. But Mueller also stated that he's not exonerated from anything either. He was basically a wash. 

Now this leads to a discussion about "not being exonerated" and how people should handle the news. Mark also explains about his reaction upon first hearing about it and what he wrote on social media. We have rules we agree to as citizens to aide by. It went through the proper channels and was investigated. If he comes out clean, then he comes out clean. Simple. But this does not exclude Trump from being sued through the states. 

Next we discuss Brexit, how it is working and what we should be focusing on regarding England. Theresa May decides that she will not be Prime Minister anymore if they pass her plan. So the world waits as England took a Trump-esque extreme stance with their voting and didn't have a strategy in place. Now they are in a shit or get off the pot situation and it looks like things will only get worse. Mark discusses making extreme decisions.

Gary explains he's thought about running for office which takes Mark of his tracks and gets him to breaking Gary down for the inevitable vetting. Mark gives some solid advice to Gary for his political aspirations.

Finally the guys discuss some TV shows and movies that they are currently into and Gary says his wife beat him to the punch on a movie...but what movie? Take a listen and find out!

All this and more on the Q!

There are so many ways to say so many things. Jonathan May joins Mark on this amazing journey we call the Q.

First up Mark decides that he needs to explain what being a liberal raised in the Midwest is truly like. Most people think being liberal is a national stance and all Liberals tend to fall from the same tree. But this is not true. Liberals in the Midwest are way more centrist than east/west coast liberals because the Midwest is so conservative, the liberals are raised with a conservative understanding and edge given to them from their parents. Mark and Jonathan discuss.

This leads to question about Police and Jonathan's person views as an ex military police officer. Jonathan has seen both sides of the coin and the question is "Where is your current stance on police." The guys discuss.

Then we get into the goods. Jonathan and Mark both have been asking questions of black and white culture on and offline. The response has been good and Mark has some questions for Jonathan and vice versa. Mark asks a question about the style of hair that people in black culture have. This leads to a convo about words you can and can't say to people in general. Also the pronunciation of words can alter the vibe of the word. The guys discuss these words too.

Finally a letter from a listener that thinks Prisoners are not being used to their potential like they should be. Mark and Jonathan discuss if the listeners stance is the proper stance or not to have. 

All this and much much more on this episode of the Q.

Did you know that the pilgrims are technically the founding fathers of our nation and not the dudes from the Revolutionary War that we love to put on our money and hold to the highest regard? 

Well the guys discuss this and much more on this new episode of the Q. Jason Kull is back and not happy about Trump calling for more randomly ridiculous "National Emergencies"...but the fun doesn't stop there because Mark invited a friend he grew up with named Steve Richards to show. Steve has been listening for years and stated that he wanted to come guest on the show, so Mark made it happen.

First, Mark and the gents discuss the new national emergencies Trump has been lining to be the boy who cried wolf. None of them are gonna pan out but it won't stop other crazier things from happening. All of this leads to a discussion about the Salem Witch trials and how one of the states has decided to setup new rules making abortion a punishable crime. The guys talk about going through with this and how it would be received here in the USA and across the globe. Also, would sentencing someone to death for having an abortion become the new Salem Witch trials? All this culminates with some talk on the death penalty and where we are at with it mentally in 2019.

Mark then moves on to the Hot Seat since Richards is a new guest to the show. 5 Questions, all random and some discussion is in store. And then Finally, we take some questions from the listeners. Should "retarded" be considered a bad word? Is it already? This and so much more is bantered about on this new episode of the Q!

Who is the Grand Trivia Master of the Q?  Well we set to find that out on this episode of the Q. Gary Weed, Producer Bobby and Jonathan May join to discuss a couple of topics before we get down to the brass tacks.

First up...R. Kelly and Michael Jackson have been hit heavily lately in the media.  Kelly is fighting for his freedom after being accused of once again talking to and sexually abusing underage females. This is the same thing he was accused of a few years ago with the "pee on her" video tape that surfaced. The new accusations basically make Kelly out to be a forceful and manipulative guy to a host of women. On the heels of that, Michael is back in the news because the kids that didn't come forward originally in the 90's have decided to come forward now on a new documentary that has radio stations pulling Jackson's music. 

This leads to an interesting discussion of NDA (non disclosure agreement) and hush money...and whether the death of one party in the agreement should or should not change the scope of the agreement. Should all rules be forgiven once one party dies in the relationship? Can the person come out after the fact, but also after spending the money they took to be quiet originally?

Finally, after a challenge from Mark to Gary regarding Trivia...Jonathan decided to jump in and we have or first Grand Trivia Master contest. Producer Bobby put together 25 questions and tie breakers (if needed) to decide this first ever champ. All the questions are general in nature. Multiple categories and varied levels of difficulty...Can you keep up with the Q crew? Are you truly a Grand Trivia Master...follow along and find out on this episode of the Q.
