This week’s archive radio show starts right off with the Toothless Old Grandpa stealing my microphone! (So where the hell else would we end up?)

After I steal it back, I first present both the problem and the solution to Ted Nugent! Then, we conduct a study on how false flags are used to promote fascism — and then the Toothless Old Grandpa explains to the citizens of Chicago why they have nothing to worry about! (However: I suspect that his salty old tongue was firmly ensconced within in his toothless old cheek whilst he was doing so…)

Next, we encourage all of our listeners to go F-%@# yourselves! Really!

After that (if you’re still listening, that is) we nuance evil by illuminating the fact that most of these folks are not so much evil at heart as they are merely adapting to their environment — just like any successful species does! If you find yourself in an environment that lavishly rewards incredibly vile behavior whilst simultaneously severely punishing honorable behavior — well — what’s an adaptating species to do?

The Toothless Old Grandpa then surprises us yet again by taking us to Greenland, where he provides a graphic example of how destroying communities also destroys people.

Finally — for the Grand Thunderbolt Finale — we hurl a high-voltage Thunderbolt at the American foster care system! (It deserves it! Believe me!)

As usual — I’m betting that this week we have a LOT of stuff that you didn’t know about.

As usual — you listen to the Thunderbolt at your own risk!
