I'm re-listening to the Reagan eps and I want them to do Kissinger, which was the original plan

So like a pimp I'm pimpin'
I got a boat to eat shrimp in

I'm sure they'll do Kissinger when (if?) he drops dead.

Every time he gets brought up I think of two things

Anthony Bourdain saying he wishes he could beat him to death after touring Cambodia

And the parody of him on Venture Bros, Henry Killinger

Also if anyone can point me to some video compression software thats free and easy to use I would appreciate it. I'm literally doing a screen record using my graphics card and the raw files are like 8+ gigs in size.

Wouldn't iMovie on Mac or whatever is baked into Windows work? I know I can export and change scaling and bitrate and all that kind of stuff. You could do that and then either archive the raw video captures or delete if storage is a consideration.

i mean i sorta get the line of thought but one, thats dumb to say on a public podcast and online and also loving look at the 6th. they would have killed mitch in a second. hell they were close to killing mittens, i honestly think if mittens had died that day, not much would have changed outside a slightly closer conviction for trump(he would have still been acquitted)

right now. it seems the dems are basically sideling the GOP because they realize Lucy won't play football and mitch already shot the hostages so the filibuster will probably get gelded when we push out hr1 and etc. the obama/clinton sorkin type poo poo has been sidelined hard so thats makes me happier.

also why does he hate america today? just same old same old? i don't judge but poo poo like that gets stale after a while. he really needs to log off.

I admit I havenít listened to most of the latest eps because the show has become mostly depressing as hell topics and even if they are not, they always end with Dave ruminating on how the world is hosed. That Miami Aerospace academy ep was pretty great but even there it ended with ď...yeah, America is basically just like this school, right?Ē

I don't think we can really say things are getting better when Trump was recently in the White House with white supremacists working for him directly, plus you still got cops killing unarmed black people with impunity.

Also, the only reason mass shootings cut back in the last 18 months was because of a pandemic that world leaders were warned about over a decade ago.

Dave's a father, he has every reason to be scared for the future. The environment is getting worse, nazis are running around, the cost of living is getting higher and higher.

If Joe Biden is considered an improvement, things are bad.

It's not that I disagree with, it's trying to say that he's wrong that I feel need to be correct. If you need a pick-me up and cant handle dark stuff right now, that's more than fine. Gotta take car eof ourselves and each other.

Itís not that itís wrong to be upset about poo poo being poo poo. Itís just the dude needs to take a break or something before he burns all his bridges or gets a knock on the door for making a threat, also the stimulus stuff was good and the infrastructure stuff coming looks good.

Anyone who thinks biden isn't better than trump is at best being obtuse, and at worst shouldn't have been allowed to graduate 8th grade.

Having said that, anyone who plans to live more than 10 years or has kids should probably be pretty panicked at the state of the world/the US.

Yeah, I don't think it's healthy to wallow in the doomerism, even if I generally agree with it. But it's pretty inevitable with a West Wing podcast (which is why I've put off picking it up). It's ground zero for the most obnoxious stuff in our political system and it's going to generally strike nerves.

If you're worried for practical reasons, I wouldn't worry too much. The line for actionable threats is pretty far off from what was quoted and it's well-established. The listeners probably like the anger overall and find it cathartic, like Dave. I know there used to be concerns about angry leftists having their Patreons pulled, but I don't think it's happened to anyone yet. And Dave's had similar meltdowns before so I don't know if it's anything "new."

Yeah, I donít disagree with him fully or his anger about the world. I just think you do need too look away from the hell vortex or twitter vortex for mental health. Going constantly doom fucks up your mind hard and isnít healthy for you or the folks your around. I know this from personal and second hand experience. Like I couldnít watch west wing or do a podcast on it. I tried for a friends and it makes me want to put a fist through a wall half the time.

What I think drives him particularly mad is having some historical context. If you're just living in the moment / near past, you can think, well, things will trend to the better eventually.

Except if you go back even 50 years you know that's not true and a lot of the worst problems we currently face aren't new and are only deepening and worsening. Trump, for example, isn't really that much of a rupture compared to Reagan when you really step back and look at it

Its tough to feel happy about incremental change when the long view seems pretty bleak. I know you have to look away from it before too long or else you end up yelling at clouds for 2 to 4 hours every week

I mean I am mixed. In someways, I absolutely agree, though I would push it back to Goldwater and Nixon and the Dixiecrats before them. But in someways we are better off than 50 years ago at least on social things. I was born disabled and if I had been born a few years earlier, Iíd have lasted a week. If I had some how survived I would have never been able to do anything and probably treated as mentally disabled at best. Things are a lot better for lgbt folks as well. And while shits still bad for black folks, itís better than 50 years ago, I think things can get better. I donít think some sorkin centrist incremental change is some magical cure or good. But I will be happy when progress still happens. I am not making GBS threads on anyone for wanting poo poo to be better faster because they are right, it should be. But acting like things are worse from then is kinda dumb.
