He’s back! James Tiberius Kirk, Captain, USS Enterprise, United Federation of Planets is back in space.
Well actually it was William Shatner went into space, at 90 years old no less. A short flight aboard a Jeff Bezos sponsored Blue Origin flight took Shatner and 3 other passengers into space.
A publicity stunt? Of course. But these flights, devoid of “professional” astronauts, are becoming more and more common place. Shatner’s flight will provide some info on what happens to the aged in space. Again he’s 90. Add that to the effort by Elon Musk to create vehicles that can get to and colonize mars, and old Captain Kirk could very well be contributing to a world that eventually looks like the show he was on in the 60s.
While here on earth fans from the University of Tennessee trash their own stadium because they were unhappy at the placing of a football by the official. God bless America.
All that and more on tonight’s’ episode of UF/UF The Podcast.
So not for nothing, but we predicted this way back. I mean like prior to Biden taking office. His problems would not come from conservatives but from within his own party. And now almost 10 months into his first year, here we are.
The Squad as they call themselves, the radical left wing part of the democratic party, has taken Biden and Pelosi head on and won. Stopping a 3.5 trillion dollar bill aimed at infrastructure that had plenty of republican votes to pass.
We deep dive in what this means for both parties and the mid-term elections creep closer.
Also tonight, robot-dogs – man’s best friend or humanities’ extinction?
The house of the Mouse may have gone too far this time. Disney screwed over one of it’s starts for one of if not the biggest franchise they’ve ever owned.
Disney released the new Black Widow movie, staring Scarlett Johannsen as Avenger Black Widow, to it’s streaming platform one week after the movie debuted in theaters. And by the way it was raking in the cash the first week it opened.
The release to the streaming platform some 6 months early has cut the profits of the movie and Scar Jo’s profits considerably. Mickey may have stepped in it this time. Give me the smart hot tough chick over the stupid mouse any day of the week.
Oh yeah and Trump is running for president in 2024. So there’s that.
A new fad is on the horizon. You’ve not heard of it? Surely not.
You better get on board. Every dictator will be styling it this season. It’s the Un diet. As in North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un. The would be moronic despot looked markedly thinner in his first public appearance in some time.
Now word comes, from Un himself, that North Korea is facing a “tense food crisis.” Word on the street is it’s likely that around 3 million North Koreans have died from starvation over the last several years. If true that number may balloon now that the most dishonest man on the planet is admitting to a food shortage in his own country.
Is the Un story believable? Yeah kind of. You know if the food is short, Un is getting the lion’s share of it and he’s still dropping weight like an aging swimsuit model stung out on Cali’s finest blow.
Well gang, someone beat us to it. Something we’ve all dreamed about doing at some point in our lives; slapping the French people. Of course you can’t slap them all. So what’s the next bets thing? Slapping their national representative.
That’s right, Damien Tarel was all of us when he busted the French president Macron in the face at a rope line. Here’s the issue, from the initial pics we saw, the slapper looked like a woman. Sorry Damien. And he was eventually captured and charged to 4 months in the slammer.
Totally worth it.
Nice work Tarel.
We talk about other stuff too. Click.
UF/UF 329: Saint gifle heureux !! Macron Slapped Silly!
It was reported Macron surrendered France right after this. (Not really)
If you’ve followed us at all you know we are always here for the rough stuff. And finally the two young guns in congress are getting after it.
It’s North vs South, Georgia vs New York, MTG vs AOC. Good looking members of congress with names so long they both go by their edgy monograms.
This could be a solid bout. AOC is more diminutive but feisty hailing from the mean streets of the Bronx and part of Queens. MTG is a sexy gym rat, chiseled and toned on her own training business ironically enough also in the 14th district. In this case that means Dade, Polk, and Catoosa counties in the northwest corner of Georgia.
Tough to pick a philly in this race. In the octagon I’m going MTG; a trained fighter with a good history of living in the gym. In the streets I’m going with AOC, the former bartender from the Bronx.
We’ll see how this plays out, but you know what we’re hoping for. Fingers’ crossed.
We at UF/UF the Podcast would like to wish all the Moms out there a most happy Mother’s Day.
On to the show.
Yeah man it’s on like Donkey Kong.
What started out as a small dispute over fishing rights is escalating quickly. Navy ships from both sides came to the fore and it was about to break out when the French fishermen fired off a few flares, yelled some obscenities’ and sailed away.
Sainte vache! Where have we seen this before. I think we all know how this movie ends.
Bitten by the hand that fed him. Hoisted on his own petard. And any other euphemism that applies to the situation America’s Mayor finds himself in at the moment.
Rudy was raided by the Department of Justice under a warrant that does not require his consent or knowledge before or after it’s executed. But Rudy knows the score. He used to execute these all the time and has long been a champion of their use.
Until the other day.
They got Rudy, they got his files, the got his Cloud, they got it all. The question remains what will all that data and info tell them?
It’s over. After 20 years, finally and officially over.
The war in Afghanistan is done. In what no one will recognize as a truly bi-partisan effort, President Biden officially ended the war and set the date for the troops to come home. Paying off on a promise President Trump made during his campaign in 2016 and set in motion in 2020.
As 24 and 22 year veterans ourselves, of course Hupp and I are biased and all in favor.
Presidents Bush and Obama both made threats/promises to get the troops back but it was Presidents Trump and then Biden who managed to actually get it done.
This is clearly not getting nearly the play it deserves. Go figure. Neither side can manage to turn it into a political missile to fire at the other so of course no lip service from the “media”.
Not a problem. As per usual, Tony and I will carry the water for those so called professionals who have long since forgotten what professionalism means.
As if the case against NY Governor Andrew Cuomo wasn’t bad enough, now both NY Democrats in the Senate are calling for his ouster. Senators Kristi Gillibrand and Chuck Schumer have told Cuomo it’s time to go. Andrew’s response: I ain’t going nowhere.
So yeah that should make for a fun summer as more sexual assault/harassment victims come forward to accuse the embattled Governor. Stay tuned.
Also tonight, Tucker Carlson goes after pregnant women in the military and it goes exactly how you’d expect. So slide FOX NEWS into the “We no longer back the military” column. Definitely stay tuned on this one.
All that and more on tonight’s episode of UF/UF The Podcast.
