… for the Christmas Army. That’s right, the war is on and you my friend need to grab your musket and get to the front line.
Yeah kids it’s real. I know, I know. I’ve been a denier for so long. But the latest attack on Classic Christmas cartoons has made me a believer. So I enlisted in Santa’s Army to fight in the war on Christmas.
If you were as savvy a musical aficionado as my partner (that’s podcast partner, not that there’s anything wrong with that) you would think the title of our post today is from the song Black Out the Sun by the band Sevendust. And you’d be right and you’d also be wrong.
Black out the sun is the new remedy by the current group of climate scientists to forestall the coming climate apocalypse. It seems spraying chemicals into the atmosphere to “dim” the sun passed muster and is now being considered by the people who consider these things.
Damn it Florida. Your ineptitude when it comes to elections is starting to rub off on neighboring states. Georgia was mired in a similar issue until the Democratic challenger for Governor graciously accused everyone except Bin Laden of stealing the election from her. An election she lost due to getting less votes than the other guy.
No matter. We press on. We’ve work to do, Speakers of the House to elect (yes, that’s how you say that), and forest floors to rake. We’ve no time for election shenanigans. There is a fictitious War on Christmas to prepare for! Tis the Season and all that.
Yeah well anyway Jim Acosta of CNN made an ass out of himself… again. This time the President took him on face to face until an aide from the press office tried to get Jim to give up the mic. He wouldn’t, she tried again, they sort of scuffled, he sort of got banned from the White House.
Well it’s finally here gang. Mid-term elections are upon us. This Tuesday, the 6th of November, Year of Our Lord 2018 is your chance to put up or shut up. I’m not saying you can’t complain if you don’t vote. You’re an American, it’s your god given right to complain. I’m just saying if you complain about current government but didn’t vote, I reserve the right to call you a jerk off.
So find your polling place, drive your happy ass down there, cast your vote, and then post your annoying little pic on Facebook with your I Voted sticker. Also don’t think for a second your little sticker is better than ours. The I Voted sticker in Tennessee is actually in the shape of the state. Suck on that!
Happy election Day from the staff at UF/UF The Podcast!
(Not to be confused with UF/UF the Blog or UF/UF the Twitter account. We all know we’re better than those other two divisions of the UF/UF empire.)
Hard to even recap what we witnessed this past week. I would like to tell you the Republic for which we stand is in good shape but based on what we saw or representative government do this week that would be a bald face lie.
Is help on the way? Is there a reckoning on the horizon? Have our feeble and weak and stupid Senators only encouraged enemies to attacks us?
EDITOR’S UPDATE: At the time of the taping of UF/UF 217 the Browns and Jets were about to take the field. We discussed this at length in 91 Seconds of Sports and the 5 Questions segments. After falling behind early to the Jets, rookie Baker Mayfield entered the game for the Browns and engineered their first victory in 2 years.
You read that right. BROWNS WIN! BROWNS WIN!
Liberals see doomsday on the horizon. Conservatives sense victory and possible chance to overturn Roe v Wade finally. It’s she said/he said time in the Senate conformation hearings for Trump’s Supreme Court Nominee.
Does he get confirmed? Does she derail the Republicans march toward a conservative court for the next 40 years? Does it matter what really happened 36 years ago at a high-school party where all parties were, by their own admission, drunk as to cloud their memories?
