Another exciting week on the Q. Mark Bland is joined this week by an old friend of the show and our co-host Gary Weed. The guest of the week is none other than Sam Arcobasso the head of Sarko Industries. 

Sam came to us a few years back with an interesting story and has returned as a man of comfort and ease. Sarko is a company designed to put high end marketing professionals and businesses with clients looking to take their projects to the next level. Sam has been in the industry for a few years and and decided he could help businesses where others couldn't. From Hospitals to restaurants to everything in between, Sarko has been helping businesses for a while and successfully...which is what leads to the second topic. 

With the ability to market to many places, Sam also wanted to start helping high school students close to graduating but needing that final credit to get the diploma. So with Sarko and including some great minds, Sam setup a HS graduation program and reached out to local schools to get it started. The students can come work like and intern for Sarko, gain their final credits and walk with their graduating class (which is a big deal for many students). Kirkwood School district has signed on and other schools are currently being talked with about the opportunity. Either way, a great way for kids to get help and learn...all this and more in the discussion about Sam's current doings. 

Finally Gary, Mark and Sam discuss some world politics and stories, shortly before finding out that Sam doesn't believe in the government as a body for the people and to help the people. This turns into a discussion about political beliefs and what people should focus on rather than not focus on. 

An amazing episode of the Q all primed up and ready! 

Sep 7, 2021

This is an interesting show. First up Mark and Jonathan May welcome Tuffy Brandon to the show to discuss the current stories of the day. 

First up, the guys breakdown some common misconceptions about race and culture in 2021. Mark and Tuffy discuss prejudice and racism, helping map it out better for people out there that might not understand the focus and reasoning for why they boxed and framed the way they are in society. 

This leads to the Trump supporters and conservatives newest favorite thing to do....taking Ivermectin, aka Horse Dewormer. Joe Rogan the well known podcaster and UFC host recently went online to explain that he had Covid 19 and was taking ivermectin to kill it off. Of course, the information and proof that it works is always up in the air, because anything that works, gets rerouted into a money making medicine that the FDA approves for the corporations. This is how Mark and the guys know that this Ivermectin is not working at all. 

Mark knows all this talk always leads down one road in non-election years...taking the stories and things happening and trying to make the president look like a bad guy. It was much less difficult with Trump since he shot himself in the foot more than anyone could, but with Biden they are throwing everything at him hoping something will sick similar to Obama. Mark realizes that conservatives hate people that are squeaky clean because it means only they (conservatives) are thinkers of bad decisions and ideas. 

Finally as with all new guests, Tuffy plays on the Hot Seat to a bevy of questions that he didn't see coming. This leads to more interesting discussions! All of this and much much more on this new episode of the Q show! WHEW!
