This week’s archive radio show starts out by rehashing some of the central themes we have been propounding here at the Thunderbolt for all of these years. We then consider how the central meme of our culture is heavily weighted in a right-ward leaning direction, and we lament the fact that the liberals seem bent upon passing useless gun control laws rather than actually fixing the problem. Next, the Toothless Old Grandpa ‘goes postal’, Donald Trump asks a very disturbing question, and for the finale this week we reveal the tricks to influencing public policy.
