  • UFUF 82: Fast and Loose with the Public Trust

    In coming up with the snazzy titles for our podcasts I usually peruse the script from the show. A lot of time the title jumps out at me. Today's script was not as forthcoming. But after staring at all the bullet points and thinking about what we said from them one thought hit home; Trust.
    It occurs to me that politicians, celebrities, and media are really playing fast and loose with our trust, the public trust, these days. The public trust is not to be trifled with in my opinion so it'll be interesting to see the ramifications, or if there will be any.
    Tonight on UF/UF the podcast: Fast and Loose with the Public Trust
    O'Lielly takes a bite outta Corn
    Fox News' Bill O'Reilly told some tall tales in his book about his Falkland War reporting. In a two for one deal, David Corn the editor at Mother Jones who broke the story, was clearly on a jihad against O'Reilly. Was Corn being a journalist or political hit man? We report, you decide!
    Legend of the Spin
    John Legend and Common won the best song Oscar for the movie Selma. Legend's speech cites stats showing more black men in "the system" than ever were enslaved. Is that supposed to be an apt comparison? What are we to take from the fact the slaves were innocent and most of the black men in "the system" now, committed crimes to get there? I have no idea. Do you?
    Don't drone me bro!
    In a chilling admission that sends world leaders scrambling, Martha Stewart reveals she has a squadron of drones she uses to spy on her guests. She intends to take over most of the developed world with her drone fleet. Can she be stopped? Hey Hupp has drones.
    Help us obi-Hupp! You're our only hope!
    ps Your paint still sucks you dirty communist.
    So public, your trust is on the open market, for sale to the highest bullshitter. What do you think about that, or about B Williams or Bill O'Reilly or any of it?

  • UFUF81: Bye Bye Brian. Hello Dana!

    Craziness abounds as Episode 81 of the UF/UF podcast takes shape. T-Nak the Magnificent is back along with Linardo's favorite game, Know Your Obama! We bid a crazy farewell to Brian Williams and speculate about the singularity of TN Gov Bill Haslam and SNL Alum Dana Carvey. No We're not off our meds, it's just Episode 81 of UF/UF the podcast!
    Click the crazy.
    Go ahead, we'll make you famous.
    Brian's Lyin
    NBC New Anchor Brian Williams is suspended without pay for 6 months. Will he back? How can he be? His lies about the helicopter appear to be the tip of the iceberg. Now his Katrina reporting is being investigated. Bye Bye Bri Bri.
    Haslam/Carvey 2020!
    Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam (R) is schooling politicians, both liberal and conservative, in the art of actually governing. Not afraid of compromise, Haslam is getting things done for the people of the Volunteer State. Is he White House material? Does he look too much like Dana Carvey? Is he Dana Carvey? We report, you decide!
    El Tigre Jr.
    A little shameless bragging here. A picture of Frank was featured on Tiger Woods' Face Book page. He has a great swing and has been keeping his own score since he was two. He happens to be Fran’s oldest child. Woods announced a leave of absence shortly after seeing this picture to "Get his game right." Coincidence? We report, you decide!

    Lots of questions to answer tonight. You want answers! You want the truth! Well my friend you'll just have to click to see if you can handle the truth.

  • UFUF80: Taxers, Axers and Anti-Vaxxers

    Big show tonight as UF/UF turns the big 80. That's right, 80 episodes and going strong. A new finish for you tonight as well as some old favorites. Who Said That is back! Sit back, click, enjoy. Your welcome America.
    Say it ain't so Nancy!
    Pelosi says she may write a book about the effort to get the ACA, aka Obamacare, passed in congress. Sounds like a snooze fest to me, a veritable word tax if you will. I wonder if we have to buy it before we know what's in it.
    Don't Wash On Me
    NC Senator Thom Tillis wants to ax the health care code that says food workers must wash hands after using the bathroom. It's gov't over reach he says. He prefers employees decide for themselves and the restaurant just place signs indicating such and then let the market just sort it all out. I got nothin.
    We want Polio! When do we want it? NOW!
    The anti-vax movement has been successful in reviving measles and mumps, two diseases that were all but eradicated years ago. The movement's gluttony of mis-information, outright lies, and conspiracy theories debunked years ago have found solid footing on social media. Because of that Tony and I are going into the iron lung business. That's where we're headed folks. Enjoy your vaccine free, dead bodies.
    All this and so much more. But you gotta listen to our measles free link.
