    I like what you have to say but its hard to hear with so many lame unecessary jokes just shoved in the script. You really ought to consider pacing and editing to make these more effective and less mind numbing. Look at it this way: would you listen to yourself if you met yourself at a party talking like youre on coke one run on sentence bleeding into another with all kinds of jokey sidenotes? seth, cmon you are better than this. Just talk to us, man. You really dont have to make us laugh anymore ok?

    Really amazing explanations in here. Nothing to disagree with. If you do, you’re braindead

    So, it’s not “defund the police” (which is unnecessarily reductive and inflammatory). It’s “reallocate resources (into soft power community strengthening initiatives) and retrain the police.”

    Reminds me of the diplomatic foreign policy efforts of Barack Obama and Bill Clinton, or Thomas Barnett’s calls to streamline the bloated military budget into leaner special operations focused on immediate threats rather than destructive, protracted deployments of occupying forces to secure foreign oil reserves.

    The Lexus and the Olive Tree meets religious extremism. Facebook vs. Jihad. The interests of the people vs. entrenched power. Local customs and cuisines vs. modern palettes and McWorld. Soul food and body image vs. updated health education programs.

    Animal cruelty and coronavirus.

    Time’s are changing. Everything’s getting ramped up into HD. It’s almost as if we expect entrenched problems to change. Ahh, young people. Such an inspiring time to be alive.

    I usually think Seth is spot on but “Defund the Police” is a dumb slogan because English. It’s not like “Black Lives Matter” where conservatives tried to twist it. Defund the police means abolish the police even if that’s not what the activists intended.

    Trump will always have his deplorables. His base would vote for Hitler over a Democratic candidate. 35% of the country has been brainwashed by right-wing propaganda.. WE NEED TO VOTE!!! It’s the only way!
