Observations: The QandO Podcast for 9 Sep 16

Podcastlogo 150x150The Seattle Seahawks may do an anti-flag protest on Sunday…the Anniversary of 9/11. Because justice. Donald Trump loves black people. Europeans have much better banking and cell phone technology than we do. The Big Short is a great movie that explains how deeply cronyist corruption has spread in our financial system, and also has Margo Robbie in a bubble bath explaining credit swaps. Wells Fargo fired 5,300 employees for creating 1.5 million fraudulent banking accounts to collect service fees from unknowing customers. Apple announced the new iPhone this week, along with the fact that they no longer do innovation. But, really, who does, anymore?

This week’s podcast is up on the Podcast page.

  • Up front disclaimer allows Dale to dodge Gary Johnson ‘gotcha question’ moment? That was highlight of the week, imho.

    • “What is a lleppo ?

    • Holy shit! We totally forgot to talk about that. Contrary to popular belief, Dale literally call me and then we start. There is no prep. We decided quite awhile ago that we would just talk about whatever came to mind. Sometimes, the most obvious things don’t. It’s a shame, too. I would have enjoyed riffing off of “What’s ‘a Leppo’?”

  • Wells Fargo fires 5300 people and their boss, who evidently knew nothing even though she is Not Sgt. Schultz, gets a 125 million dollar bonus. Another of the well-paid 1% who earned every penny.

    Incidentally, I am changing my nom de net until the election.


  • I-l-l-l-l-e-e-e-p-o-o ! ! !

  • Mystery solved …

    Former McClatchy Washington Bureau Chief James Asher says he was personally pitched the “born in Kenya” story by Sidney Blumenthal, a Clinton surrogate, in 2008.

    #CNN says #Hillary team in 2008 never raised #birther issue. #SidBlumenthal, long-time #HRC buddy, told me in person #Obama born in #kenya
