RANT Segments & Headlines:


The Good:

  1. The President of the United States is an interesting man. He’s an excellent politician, as we have seen by how productive he has been in spite of the really productive actions the Democratic party has put though being systematically stonewalled by the GOP, he’s still guided dramatic changes. Now, seeing as how he can’t be re-elected due to term limits, he’s calling a spade a spade.  At a Democratic Conference in Nevada, he said,
    It’s hard for me to express how much I love Harry Reid, but it’s easier to do it in a room of people who love Harry Reid. Harry and I drove over here together and we were doing a little reminiscing, and then figuring out how we’re going to deal with the crazies in terms of managing some problems. And then we talked about riding off into the sunset together. Everything I’ve accomplished, I’ve accomplished because Harry Reid was there by my side. And I am forever grateful for his friendship and his strength, because the thing about Harry is he’s a great politician but he’s also a man with a lot of backbone and is willing to do hard things when it’s required, and that’s what you want out of a political leader.“ He hasn’t apologized, and I don’t think he should. The numbers are on his side. http://www.politicususa.com/2015/08/25/obama-speaks-mind-calls-mitch-senate-republicans-crazies.html

The Bad:

  1. John Oliver, and his show Last Week Tonight, has been a powerful force for putting a spotlight on the horrible and ridiculous things that are going on right under our noses. Lately he has taken on the prosperity gospel televangelists. He formed his own church, and this was all to highlight how stupidly easy it is to take advantage of the tax laws around religious exemptions, and went ahead and registered his own church with the IRS, called Our Lady of Perpetual Exemption. The IRS was apparently watching the show, or was like a dog that had its nose shoved in a pile of it’s own doo after take a crap on your oriental rug. Let’s see if anything happens. http://uproxx.com/tv/2015/08/last-week-tonight-irs-televangelists/
