    DT,

    Good research on the slimy way Dems passed 0bamacare. I did not know (or forgot) that it was passed via reconciliation.
    Since the major media covers for them at every turn, it is easier for them to get away with this sort of stuff.

    It looks like you are correct about the Dems laying a repeal trap for the R’s.
    Your strategic advice to the legislative branch R’s allowing 0bamacare to self destruct is 100% correct.
    The R’s should make a “repeal” attempt they know will fail, letting the law auger-in, then use it for additional leverage
    in the 2018 midterm elections.

    Hey DT,

    You used the original version of this song for the intro, thought you might like a restyling and to look into what else that group does.

    In regards to your series on nihilism I recently read “Watchmen and Philosophy” and the author argues that Nietzsche developed the theory in order to argue against it in “Thus Spake Zarathustra.” He uses the characters/archetypes presented in the movie to develop his arguments for different philosophical perspectives and in learning how people decide to live their lives and make moral decisions.

    I enjoy the podcast, keep on keepin on, enjoy your family and the weather up there.

      My wife is really into Ellie Goulding – if there’s a metal version send it my way! \m/

      I’m just starting to get into Nietzsche – his ideas are fascinating and his blunt writing style is great. I have read him enough to know he never endorsed nihilism but believed it was a transitory stage to something else. I think we as a society are transitioning right now- we’re all trannies!!! đŸ˜‰

      Thanks for the comments!

    If you like Watchmen it’s a good movie to explore all kinds of social issues and philosophies, plus Jeffrey Dean Morgan plays the Comedian, and he plays Negan in Walking Dead.

    I forgot to add the link, there’s a band called Postmodern Jukebox (PMJ) that does classical musical (jazz, big band, etc) stylings of modern rap, metal, and pop songs. They partner with people like Puddles Pity Party for vocals.
