THIS WEEK we get all depressed about coronavirus then el Sooper explains why Twitter is making us all doomed or maybe we’re not doom but at least he comes up with a new word and it’s amazing. Then we talk about our new show, Guess! That! Statistic!! [Applause!] Also el Sooper talks about dumb Twitter brain gotchas and unfortunately he criticizes Matt behind his back and behind his front, sorry about that Mattsparagus, and finally he makes a revealing sooper-gaffe! WOW!! You must listen now!!
So I know there’s a lot of debate about where we are at with the coronavirus pandemic and lockdown. Here’s one interesting tidbit to consider. Just four months ago, at the end of March, the IHME model was predicting 80,000 deaths from coronavirus, and that was their middle-of-the-road prediction.
Their worst case prediction on the upper bound of the graph was closer to 160,000 deaths.
And according to official accounts of the deaths, we are at 150,000 right now.
Now, that is just one prediction, one model. I know that many like to quote the 2 million prediction by another model in order to try to prove that it’s just not as bad as it could have been. Then there’s this:
If President Trump is keeping Fraud Fauci on-board, it is only as a useful idiot to set unrealistic expectations Trump can easily defeat.
This was a conspiracy theory by many on the left, that Trump was overblowing the predictions in order to say that it wasn’t that bad, and that he did a good job. But Bill Mitchell is a HUGE Trump fan! So even one of his greatest supporters was thinking he did it on purpose to inflate the numbers to claim a dubious victory. Now that is what I call 879th level chess…
THIS WEEK we got “fragile delicate flower of a woman” Jess and Matt!! And I yell at people because that’s what the people want!! We talk about Nick Cannon and someone keeps calling Jess on the phone then they don’t let me give them the facts. ALSO we talk about the Ebola bunnies and the murder hornets. Then we talk about how nobody wants to do Jess’s dystopian novel bookclub. Thanks Julia! Also Matt tries to cancel the Buffalo Bills, but I don’t let him. Then awful things happening in Mexico, and Cherry Diet Pepsi Zero, also Wayfair and fat people on diabetes. WOW!! You have to listen right now!! And why real Mexicans hate the Sooper Mexican. GO LISTEN!!
Well it happened. I got a notice from Zazzle that they had shut down my account after 3 strikes on my designs for sale on their website. I absolutely agree with the company’s right to do that. But, they also took all of my revenue from shirts and other items that I had sold on their website for years.
And that’s BS.
In addition to that, they didn’t give me a chance to download my image files, some of which were designs that I put a lot of work into and are now gone completely.
I’m not gonna cry that my constitutional right to free speech has been crushed. It hasn’t. As you can well see by you reading this message from me right now. I just want my damn money, Zazzle.
So if you would like to *politely* tell them they done me wrong, feel free. They are on Twitter.
If you use @Zazzle I’d recommend you stop. They hit me with a few violations, took down my shop and then took alll my money I had made through product sales. Nice huh? Seems kinda racist.
Now I *could* have posted all these screenshots of anti-Trump stuff and claimed that they cut my account because of political bias. And that might have had some small part in it. BUT I need to be honest – my designs were made to be a little edgy. So I understand that they have a right not to have my stuff on their website.
In the meantime, if anyone knows a better service with somewhat low standards for appropriate speech, let me know. I never got a shirt with my own Thomas Sowell design!! Terrible.
YES! This week we TRY really hard TO HAVE A HAPPY PODCAST after last week’s shameful drunken logic blowout. That’s why we tossed out Matt on his irrational beard. That’s right it’s a MATTLESS podcast, with Sooper and Jess!! We talk about the great great Twitter hack of 2020 and the revolution against all blue-checked elitist peoples! THEN Jess has a giggle aneurysm over the Clue movie. Then we talk about cancel culture some more and how its ruining the people. Aaaaand you’re gone.
So look it’s a done deal, the Lincoln Emancipation statue in Boston in coming down. The reason for this is that many people are, stupidly, upset that the slave is kneeling while Lincoln is standing triumphantly in the statue.
I have to admit, I understand why some people might find that questionable, but if they look into the history of the statue and what it represents, I think it’s just not that strong a critique. Certainly not enough to take down a great statue that represents a great moment in American history.
BUT, if you’re upset that the statue makes slaves look downtrodden, then someone needs to explain to me why this statue is still OK:
It’s at the The National Memorial for Peace and Justice, which is also known as the National Lynching Memorial, in Montgomery, Alabama. Now I want to make it clear that I don’t have a problem with it, it’s a great monument to a horrible time in America. But why is the top statue denigrating to slaves, and not the bottom one? Just because of the presence of Lincoln?
I learned about the latter monument during an MSNBC documentary that actually has a lot of interesting information about slavery and the statue controversy. But they seemed to love the existence of the slavery statue, so why not defend the Boston Lincoln statue also?
This WEEK we get a MATT back, we apologize. El SOOPER has a great idea for a YouTube series called “What how what how,” and you will love it. Then we talk about Europe and then el sooper drinks too much and starts yelling at Matt about his horrible terrible arguments and he quotes Aristotle and Plato and it’s GREAT! But then he has to apologize later. You WILL LOVE IT wow. Also the dystopian movie plans and how to bring happiness to the people! WOW! Listen right now!!
I finally did it. I deleted Tik Tok from my phone and anyone with half a brain should do it too. There are about a million reasons to do this, but let’s go over a few.
If you are conservative, it’s a slam dunk issue. The app has been identified by the U.S. government as spyware that steals your information, and reports are that the Chinese communist government stores all of this data from everyone in order to use it against them in the future. Why are we helping the commie government collect information on us?
If you’re liberal, it’s also a slam dunk issue. Of ALL of the racist accusations that the left loves to make against America in our past, most if not all of that crap is going on in China RIGHT NOW. Concentration camps, oppression of religious minorities, racial discrimination, just pick one, and the commies in China are gleefully committing it.
Here are some more reasons to delete the Chinese commie app:
China literally gave the world coronavirus and lied about it, allowing it to spread and kill more people
China is literally taking away the political freedom and liberty of all of the residents of Hong Kong.
China is literally spying on all of its citizens in order to oppress them and maintain despotic political control.
THIS WEEK we get rid of Matt, who is not woke enough and has been cancelled, so we have woke JESS instead! We talk about how to bring joy to the people and a little bit of politics and how Trump is blowing it right now. Also the rat story. WOW!! You have to listen right now!! No Matts.
