You were just saying: No got a cold you're! Fine! Yougood! It's GOINNA, go away! Yeah your crapping blood! It's fine! It's a it'sa coax! It's a hoax! Not quit! Let's gostart our own facebook gap. Oh Parlors, yeah start our own AP whitepeople meet Yeah Christian mingle to point out. Realit's the whatit be a be christome.I, the cresades sponsored by OAM dfucking dude. Oh Aen scares me at first. I was like oh ha, Haa fuckthem, but like now, they're gaining like clout, and it's like, let's guyslike people like, Oh Fox News, n't like trump anymore yeah. We need to go ithYo and like they baned, they jump ship, it's all, even though they still gotfucking Tucker Carlson over there, but at some point they just had it like.When do you gave to go to like another like yea? Oh Ann is like. I don't evenknow what you could call that. That's like that's that's gurbles level,propaganda, Kay yeah, because they're talking about how like yeah that's lota video. Today they were like we in a in a computer hacked into hacked by themilitary. They discovered the true results of the election that have trumpwinning forh four hundred and ten electoral votes, and it was hidden byleft Ist extremis step up up up up about yeah it'slike. What the fuck ever? That'sthat news, literally Cropagana Yeah, that's yeah! That's that's! Now we'retotally winning the war. That's fine! Yeah America, Sucks...

Yeah, Jews they're! Coming for you! That's that'sall it is yeah. I thoug Bright Bart was bad yeah. They make Braht Bark Look, look likefucking, BS, yeah, Antique Road Show, I'm just waiting fora fucking Maga, Maga fucking flag, Git, be on the Antique Rod, show like howmuch is the showbel war, Ralic wor, southern Civil Warwele, that's worthShit stitching is impeccable and I noticedit still got the metal ringlets for attaching it to the to. The hoistprobably gave you ten bucks for it and some store credit. I fucking last time we did this. The election wasthat week, wasn't it yeah it was. We did the night before the election. It was right. It was the night beforeso we were like we're going to talk about shit, ands Gon to be fucking. NotI we weren't. Even I listened back to we weren't even fucking. We were so offat w because I think I think I because WM, my guess was that hit Wen. The wasOkihe was at bide, would win popular trump weld win the electoral. I think you were expecting a bit. Ithink why mean the everybody in general was expecting a bigger gap between what we got yeah. I expect a morepopular vote. Five million is a lot, but I expected like more than that,like gues, they it like ten billion more people. Oh Yeah. I expect youthink, he's going to win the popular, but it's going to be by a shit load andit in it really is it's the five billions of big number, but when yourtaling about it's, the biggest gap you know is that the biggest we've had it'sthe biggest gap between frinpopular boat yeah. That's the craze really that feels sosmall because Y, because because we're talking about hundreds of millions ofpeople, so five million in the grand scheme in things feelsmall, but I can't believe that's the biggest gap wow, so they so they've been closerthan this. Before that's insane shit, you figured it but like. If youlook at you like Holy Shit, like the fine million is a lot it is. I think ahundred fifty million people voted or something like that yeah because theyboth got like seventy something million. So you gotta figure like Jesus. That'sa lot, but I thought you went my like tenmillion yeah. I watched Fox News and Sein an ECAUSE. I was on vacation for five stree days yeah and that's notgood for your psyche. I work at EMEMBER. I work at a at anaffiliate station. So were one part ABC one part Fox, so I was gettingbasically two different usal points of view on the exact same fucking election and I was it was crazy. I didn'trealize how, like stingy like compared to everybody else, ABC like waits untilevery fucking vote has been counted before they'll call a state, that's oseein that was doing yeah. They were they were. They were Fox like it s.They were e, whether it was blue or red. They were calling shit like immediatelyyeah. They called at Tarizona Super Fast Bebous. The airs ton they gottigter than they thought it was yeah. They called Arizona before anybody else.Did I always look at Associated Press there.They tend to be the most reliable and they're thorough and also they do theGoogle thing. So it's real time so that was constantly just refresh howverPennsylvania, refresh Oe River Pennsylvania ohthat. So it was weird that night. By Way, I haveallergies. That's why sound like I'm allergic to cats, long story, yeah!I have two cats. I have one now it's I'vm been trying tokeep her ound of here for obvious reasons: There's cords and cableseverywhere, and it's not covid yeah, it's literally my allergies, a killingme at the hot second, but so Dowt di the election like Ohio and n. Howhappened they counted? Oh yeah, the early voting first because like when Iha like Olly Shit like minds up like...

...five hundred thousand boats, but thenwe twit yeah. We were blue for a little while there, then it dwindled away yeah.U, then, PA hit. I remember, reading about Pennsylvania, how they had theirvoting set up and the stuff like that. For a while, because there they're acommonwealth they're, not even a state yeah, so they've got all kinds of weirdrules and laws and shit so that happened. I Wan the bet like for them threemorning. That's how late I stayed up it's aboutyeah me too, and I was like siting there. I was like I before I went thobad Kae. He was ut by like four hundred olar or something something like thatand then whet. I notice it dropped and I was like, I think, they're countingthe the Maland ballots now yeah. So I was like if I wake up it's down evenfurther, I think he's going to Woond Pensiwa yeah yeah, so they halreadysaid the debers like to point five million people voted Malind and most of the Malan ballotslike or diar for Biden. Well, yeah, that's that was. That was a big thingthat people have been trying. That's been the big discrepancy, as where didall these votes come from s? They were mailind ballots trump spent the lastthree months. Tilln everybody don't do Malin ballots, so everyone who did wasdoing it for Biden. Well and Wen ul my mind is: I woke up like the leady evendropped. You more. I was like awesome like that's like I'm for sure no body'sGon, Wi Pensylvaia, I messith my friend Dan, you don't know. Damn N he's likeyeah he's like it's more likely, hit's gong away like if he did the how hisbidens get like at the time. Like I try to do the math before I went to bed, Iwas like it's like sixty sixty five percent of mailanis going to him, butend up being like almost eighty per like seventy five yeah. So like 'meter thinking of my head, I'm like I for I was going with this like when I woke up. I was like HolyShit like this. Is this is fral he's gonna win this like it was wild but CIO in my head, like to point five million million people voted like balltwis. Like he's, gonna WinPennsylvania, it's Gon a be super easy, but people on facebook mm, like Oh, myGod by it all Suden. They found on the hundred thousand plus votes for him. Iwas like keep in mind if you think about trump was also getting mal andballot boats, but they're like Oh only bin. I got themail about. He got a hundredk. I like no trump was also getting like you. No,you got like ten percent of them. You just didn't get very many people whomailed in ballasts for trump were people who, like literally couldn'tleave their house, which is weird because those people respect science,yeah right but voted for drum yeah. That was. That was the thing that blewa lot of people away was, like you know, th, because I was when they when theyfinally called the election. that Saturday I was at, I was out shopping aChristmas tree shop. I was getting Catt Shit and Al Soden. You heardeverybody's phones in the store go but TS. I thought like a fucking. Amberalert was going off or something pull my phone, and I was like. Oh look atthat cool. I remember he took the lead inWisconsin Yeah. I was on the toilet, taking a shit like ei the morning. Ourfreshness he's down to like three thousand votes alsoas like he was up bylike a THOUSANDOF thee. A lot of the Midwest went from red to Blu in thespan of a couple F hours. It was insane, I will say the best thing to come outof this election. So far has been the nevadamimes ogay. The navadomes havebeen like, where it's a Nevada replaced with, like the Internet explorer logo.What the reason they won't tell is is because what happens in Vegas Tay, Ibig good shit and Ana we ven nd, he didn't even need. ABATA. L Think Ithink the reason because everybody was so focused on Thevat and I think thereasons because at that point he was at wo and sixty four and Nevadaas worthsix votes yeah and he they were like if he gets Nevada. He wins. Everybody kindof was like not even paying attention toPennsylvania. They were so focused on Nevada, especially because what I love s theykept showing the map. wherets, like you, look at Nevada, and it's like all isjust. It was just two counties that were blue but thit's, because the restof Nevadis desert is all that. All that Layo A it's been.The big thing is land doesn't vote...

...people vote, it's like yeah. You gotall this red, but it's like it's like a person, FerSquare Mi, no fucking Iremember, going to bed thatI think in like think it lik actually w an like that's what Pennsylvania I waslike. Ou Act, wont Pennsylvania like and I woke up and everything droppedand then Wisconsin was the next. I think West conser votes flipped on notWednesday as Thursday, Thursday yeah DA's like. Ah That's why I scraped onthe couch and fucking he won Georgia. Georgia wasInsayne. Georgia was nuts yeah. I don't think anybody saw Georgia coming yeahwell, Stacy Abrams cause that to happen really yeah. She got eight hundredthousand people registered to vote. Oh, I did hear about that. She wentlike Dor, ador and shit for her. You O they get hert. You know, yeah US skiphe wens for Froit, but she was also running at the time like two years ago.She didn't get it obviously right, she's running, for, I think governor. Ican't remember hat. I think I was governor. Yeah Sheidn't get it, but sherezured eight hundred tousand people, so if it wasn't Fer Literaly, stacy,avrams yeah, it's true, I read she was like driving people to the Poles and,like that's more people like that, yeah whatshitthat doesn't Gan they're going to vote for her right. She wasn't. She wasn'tgetting people to vote for buyit and she was getting people to vote they'reregister like the practice, the right yeah American citizen. Well, this wasthis was one of those years where I mean I hink. We talked about this brieflylast week like a people, they really the last few elections. I don'tremember there being this much easily accessible information about votinglike like voting rules. Oh yeah, like like, like people, were putting upwebsite lengths like if you need to know like all the different ways youcan vote like go to this link and they, like they spoon, fed it to you. I don'tthink I've ever seen that before, but I think that's also like people were so adamant about like theywant to trump out of office, so they were trying to encourage people to votebecause they know that, like if the people who really actually like don't like this guy votednumbers wise, you know, Biden, would probably win just most time. They don'tgo vote yeah, which was the biggest problem. Did WE ACAI? I think we, Ithink we thought about. I think this was the highest voter turnout of alltime. Yes, because I know trump because aolbecause agg is bidinis now the most devoted for person in any American election and en's trumpand trump is second yeah, so yeah. So we had we have to because Ithink I think number one previously was it was Abama was Obama mckain? I think that's got to be right, but it was wild, wisch e Wa, a beinghis administration, but he's not going to be. I Don, no ion't think hes allowed to be bigdudbecause of order of succession. I have no idea, I mean I would make sense.Yeah just be Hilarious, I don't know I've heard some early,some early rivers about about about who's, going to be and WHO'slooking forr to be in the cabinet. Some of the names don't thrill me like, like John Casicks, one of them,I'm like really like, I know he's trying to. I know,he's trying to play both sides of the fiddle a little bit here, but I'm likewhy him yeah. The thing is, I think, at the point like they ned there's need touse some bipartisanship yeah and that's like I just feel like. If you're going topick a republic and there's other Republicans, you can pick yeah but he'salso very democratic, leading right now. It's true you got to have like. If youlook at somebody he's like he was at a DNC. He spoke it. The DNC, that's true!I forgot about that. Yeah! You know he hasn't like ifucking Senate is so fucking split. Well, they don't want like whena bob in Wan abomos, they didn't pass it they't, let anything at DOMAPA.

Last two years it was the house yeah, not let anything get tothe Senate. Yeah so tet needs to be some bipartsonship. I think okay, six,a good yeah! Well, you start by getting Ria f the Polosian Schumer Yeah God,I'm saying that is a guy who typically votes blue. I hate them so much so well,they they look like Adaf family retire at like they'd play more Tissus mom anddad or something yeahyeah. Now it's PTIT's in there yeah. It doesn't matterthat they're on the on the blue side, they're an inherent part of the problem,theyre those career politicians. You were so out of touch with the realworld and well, even even we saw wha like inthis past week, like a bunch of, like you, know, middle of the roaddemocratswe're going after the progressive saying. The reason theydidn't win by more is because the progress is fucked them and I'm like me,go fuck yourself yeah, because in about ten years you're going to be dead andthe PROGRESSIV is going to be e onces coming in anyway. So Yep, you know e.That is that one thing Shilam millenial run for president like it's going. NoHAPP Like Hee are yeaoly Shit. Remember that, though, wevear that yeah, likethat somebody, like Fox News, brought it up and you're like. Do you don'tunderstand how the concept of time, sooner or later, that's all there willbe, but also like, I think, they'vepeopleagain, e millennial is one of those terms that everyone throws around. Theydon't realize how big of a group that really is, I mean you're, a millennial.If you were born in eighty five yep people who are in their ies now areconsidered millennials. You Know Yut see it was on twitter. I don't know how UCtraction. It's getting? U Binin talking about somebody'stalking about Buina, doing an executive order to to kill up to fifty housenddollars a studen Lon dept per person. Can we do that? Please no Oto, my thatgogod almos crying. I would because that's almost all my student, that, like that's well, is Tom, like theeconomy like crazy, well, yeah, I'm tired of having to pay out five hundredplus bucks a month for a degree that took me years to get me ajob that barely pays me enough to survive. You know, and that's just Eritlike irritating, was like people don't like Oll people don't realize, like itwas way cheaper to go to college yeah. You CANL get a parttime job as adishwasher and afford to go to college yeah. Now it's impossible and myparents, I think, were had WT, didn't really understand that until mybrothers and I went to college and were done and saw just have shitty becausethey were like. Why haven't you found a job in your field? Again, it's likethere aren't any granted. I went into a into the digital media field, but youknow regardless it's. You know we ar you know I've seven iave overseventy grand and student that right now and it took me three four years tofind a job in my field I make just under thirty Fivek a year as AI forfive years, Af work in there with itwith the promotion. It's Pe, kids are Liv, people are living ahome mom their s because they can't afford and they did the right thingthey did. They did what everyone told us to do. Yeah we got the jobs and saved the money andgot the loans and the scholarships and did the time in school, and now youknow they're working at no ffence but they're, working athorizon and Walmart and pizza shops, and I don't have my Agi Collegeegucagent. So, like I understand, I am very fortunate,like out of my age group that I actually get to work in my field. Ohyeah, like I know, I'm fucking lucky, but I also know I had to put up withsome shit long before I got there. I May, when I was a kid I was likefourteen. I looked at the steelent lone I was like this is the biggest game ofalt like I was fourteen. I was like so what you're saying is I put myself ondebt for the ext twenty five years? Hopefully, get a job in my feel because,like I kind of noticed it as like, like fiw years, hopefully get a job when Ifeel it's not gonna pay off a load or...

...twenty five like yeah that doesn't makeany well, not only that they student loan companies aren't beholding to thesame rules as any other lender in the country. You can't R, I don't think youriht him off tem yeah. It's only thing that doesn't go away with Likh. Like F,you go Youd, plar bankruptcy. All your deck goes away, except student loans.They might go into like state of forbearance for a few years, becausethat my my parents coastigned a couple of my loans and they had to clearbankruptcy at one point, so those ones got frozen for a while. Now it startpaying them back again, because after a while that goes away, that's fucked up.It's like yeah. You declare bankruptcy. You still have to pay those loans back.They can garnish your wages. They can. If you die, that debt goes to your toyour family. They don't have any of the same rules that credit card companiesand auto lenders have it's like. There's been stories of people likeit's social security living like Gra, yeah security like retirement havingtheir wages garnished from studeloads yeah, which is like crazy. How fucks IT'S FUCKED UP! It's like Ou, said it'sa huge scam and part of it's because collegshave gotten away with racking up tuition costs exponentiallyin the last twenty thirty years. I mean it costs thirty to forty grand a year to go to college nowadays. Butmeanwhile, you know people still making minimum wage still seven twenty five anhour whatever the fuck. It is now eight and eighty or something like that.THAT'S NOT ENOUGH! It's not! Now it hasn't been enough. In fifty years Ijust blows my mind: Yeah, my wife almost pays a thousand dollars a monthand student loans. THAT'S THAT'S INSANE! That's that's a that!That's a whole paycheck for M, like Nin, nine hundred likeninety Somehin Bucks,I'm, like God, O Gou, just kids right now, yeahshe's, paying for. Obviously it's like income based now like how UC she makesit yeah, but, like I wou she has' e, paying that when she's Han n, herfucking Su loans for ten plus years like and she still ow seventy granditibecause, and that's that, because a lot of times you make the minimumpayment that barely goes to cover just the interest Andre making like you'repaying like this year. So in Covid hit they froze everyone' student loans, soany payment she made once to the principal which was cool. You know youput put a little bit of a dent in that, but, like I got the email yesterday,like the shit ends, you know in January an ready, bitches get ready, you'reabout to get fucked. I just don't God it's Iritating Yeah, I'M! I'm so glad I didn't go to college. My wife said she wanted Ov. She had douit all aagain she wounded. Have I don't know I honet. I honestly don'tknow if I thought about that like if I could go back to it again, whon. I havegone to school again because I think part was because I loved whereI went. I love the people I met and I got to have like I got to have someamazing experiences a and learn some really cool shit like I couldn't dothis. If I hadn't gone gone to school, where I did, but at the same time likeyou know, I look at. I look at my. You Know My budget at the end of everymonth and it's like fucking student loans, man, but I also wouldn't have the job rightnow that I have. I don't have my degree. So it's lie. I don't know it's the end.If you do damned, if you don't with thes shit and but that's also a position, I feel likethat. We shouldn't be putting people in well, I twenty thirty years ago, if yous like,would you go? If somebody said you I graduated college like would you go?They would be like. I would have done it all over aain yeah its like it's aFINANCEA burn. Toer, like I don't fucking know like yeah, it's it's. It's an impossible. Cancel our studenton Yeah, so we can afford avocado to it's every time I heard some ma madethat Argu es okay, I don't eat avocado toast.
