Things are getting edgy. People are on edge. Trump and the republicans choose to keep ignoring the Black Live Matter people and eventually someone gonna have to draw a line and play the "don't step over that line or else game".
Trump feels protected by the military, but BLM is deeper than some punk kids causing issues on the street and the liberals are gonna have to stand up to this man and his promoting of LEO in the face of what is happening in the country.
Jonathan May joins us on this show to discuss the Jacob Blake and Kyle Rittenhouse situations. Jacob Blake was shot in the back by Kenosha police after they were called to a disturbance that Blake was involved with in Kenosha Wisconsin. Jonathan and Mark discuss the situation and surrounding reasons.
This leads to the discussion about Kyle Rittenhouse. A 17 yr old boy that drove with an AR-15 to Kenosha where people are protesting the Blake shooting. When he arrives he links up with people he knew from a FACEBOOK group and they were there to Protect the people and businesses. It was his "job" he told someone before the shooting started. Rittenhouse then gets into his own melee with people where he shoots and kills 2 people and wounds another one badly.
Conservatives have been GLEEFUL with Rittenhouse and have claimed Self Defense. He was arrested for Intentional Homicide which is not "self defense".
Mark and Jonathan discuss all of this in glorious detail on this new episode of The Q!
(understand this was recorded before other pieces of info came out so the guys went with what they knew at the time)
KAMALA HARRIS. She is the pick for the VP slot of Joe Biden's campaign. She is educated and smart. Sticks by her guns and easy on the eyes. But is she who the Liberal's should have focused on.
Well welcome to this episode of the Q. Joining to discuss the Kamala Harris decision is none other than Jason Kull our resident hardcore liberal and definitely not a Trump guy. But also joining the show is a young man and professional disc golfer named Michael Sherman who came through to discuss video games and an event he has coming up.
But first the guys touch on Michael and Mark's relationship and how they became connected. This leads to some fun discussion about a recent Twitter thing that Mark had to deal with (1000 times a day). But then comes the real fun. Mark and Jason break down the Trump situation and the Biden situation. Who is good and who is bad. What is important and what's just not important. Sit back and enjoy as you find out if Kamala Harris helps or hurts Joe Biden.
Next Michael Sherman and the guys dive in head first to the world of video games. Michael plays a fun game called VALORANT online and they have a huge Labor Day weekend tournament coming up. They are trying to put together a league of people that like the game and their first major Scuffed Streamer Series is happening August 28-29. Each streamer gets 4 viewers to sit beside them as they play and showcase their talents and why they are the best VALORANT competitor in the world.
This leads to a discussion about the video game industry currently and the people that have become ROCKSTARS online for their streaming efforts. The guys discuss Dr. Disrespect, Tyler 1 and of course Ninja. Plus they dive into some backgrounds on gaming and how Mark and Jason being older don't always connect up with the younger video game set.
Finally a new guest and new game of The Hot Seat. Michael goes through the 5 questions and we figure out whats the best single guy/loner food that's cheap to make and you always like the taste. Plus much more. All this on the new Q.
Welcome to another one....Mark Bland and guest Gary Weed take you on another trip through the political landscape and talk the biggest stories of the week.
First up, Trump trying to grab the voters with his big Executive Orders to cut drug prices down. Executive Orders are usually immediate and your prices should come down now....but are they? No. Trump is CAMPAIGNING. We've talked about this on the show before. Conservatives will say anything for a vote. Trump included. Mark and Gary breakdown their thoughts on these decisions.
Next, Gary goes off script and talks about Joe Biden NOT BEING a good choice for President of the USA. Why, you ask? Well listen to the show and find out why Gary feels this way!
Your TRUTH is next up. Gary and Mark start talking about people and situations where the words "your truth" are invoked. Usually these are people that just want to live outside of normal everyday reality. They have their own "Truth"....aka beliefs. Are their "truth's" valuable to anyone other than themselves...nope. But Mark and Gary discuss these types of people.
Finally Mark and Gary take on some questions and this brings up the discussion about the Lady who sued McDonalds for spilling coffee on her lap back in the 80s/90s....but there is more to that story than you might know. Tune in and find out!
