What is this word you’re reading off the paper instead of “Saturnalia”? SAT-OOM-MAL-YA lol

The word is SATURNALIA…after the planet Saturn. Some cultures have a similar day with many of the same scatological motifs, celebrated around All Saints (Souls) Day/Halloween.

Uh, oh! Having achieved Level 46 myself, I have a feeling that your eyes or contacts elided the R with the N for an M. At least that is what allowed this classicist to avoid cringing each time ;) I love your show and watch/listen in almost total empathy. Be well!

Thank you, Jimmy, You have a great show, and I am going to get more involved with spreading the best TRUTH I can find. I’m counting on you Forth Estates. I know you are AWAKE NOW. WE NEED ACCURATE INFORMATION TO MAKE THE RIGHT DECISIONS. Our world is on fire, and I don’t give a damn about what ANY POLITICIAN HAS TO SAY, right now.”Love is what we need”

Can we get citations for history of christmas?

Loved it!

I remember this SatuMalia mistake from some other edition of your podcast, is it the same section from a few years ago?

Hi again Jimmy, I love the show. But, I’m sometimes afraid that you’re going to uh, “rage monkey” yourself into an early grave. (That’s a “28 DAYS LATER” movie reference.) Please don’t.

Okay, the DEMOCRATIC PARTY has been taken over by somewhat “moderate” Republicans. And, it doesn’t look like that’s ever going to change.

Their job is to keep the ILLUSION of a TWO PARTY SYSTEM going, when what we appear to have is really a SINGLE “TWO-FACED” PARTY.

As CENK says, they’re PAID TO LOSE.


Corporate Dems are paid to “COCK BLOCK” Progressives and to thwart any real, lasting progress. #ProGrexit2017

P.S. I REALLY enjoy hearing from the rest of the panel (and it’s just my opinion), but MS. ZAMORANO should never “ASK” if she can make a comment. Just do it.

Hi, I saw your recent interview with JORDAN CHARITON on “Aggressive Progressives.”

He mentioned something I’ve suspected for a while, which is that the FLINT WATER CRISIS may really just be a LAND GRAB.

FLINT is conveniently located near several major highways. $$$

The Poor, as well as Working and Middle Class people live in older homes which have lead pipes. But, newer homes use PVC Pipes (at least in California).

Poison the water. Bring in the bulldozers. Hello Gentrification! Hello Creamy Lattes! Goodbye icky poor people. Buh Bye! Go die somewhere else please.

Flint today may be America tomorrow.

We know that the KOCH BROTHERS and the GOP are using certain cities and states as INCUBATORS to test out their wicked shit.

So, the game plan in Republican controlled states appears to be giving unaffordable TAX CUTS to the wealthy and corporations, STARVING THE CITIES of CASH, which leads to budget shortfalls.

And, that allows them to OVERRIDE DEMOCRACY with UNELECTED EMERGENCY MANAGER SHILLS, who sabotage the water and then LOOT PUBLIC and PRIVATE ASSETS. $$$

The only thing “trickling down” on the rest of us is PISS, SHIT, POVERTY, DEBT, and LEAD CONTAMINATED WATER. Where’s a GUILLOTINE when you need one?

So, I was watching the first of the EDMUND KEMPER “Murder with Friends” episodes and they showed the PSYCHOPATHY CHECKLIST.

And, …. then I thought of DONALD TRUMP. Scary. : )



• glib and superficial charm
• grandiose (exaggeratedly high) estimation of self
• need for stimulation
• pathological lying
• cunning and manipulativeness
• lack of remorse or guilt
• shallow affect (superficial emotional responsiveness)
• callousness and lack of empathy
• parasitic lifestyle
• poor behavioral controls
• sexual promiscuity
• early behavior problems
• lack of realistic long-term goals
• impulsivity
• irresponsibility
• failure to accept responsibility for own actions
• many short-term marital relationships
• juvenile delinquency
• revocation of conditional release
• criminal versatility

Someone at TYT should put together a “video montage” of DONALD TRUMP’s many, many campaign positions. It can show him going back on almost everything he ran on, and then filling his FREAK SHOW CABINET with STEVEN THE MUNCHKIN and GOLDMAN SACHS.

“Drain the swamp! Drain the swamp! Drain the swamp!”

The background audio can be TRUMP reading his “YOU KNEW I WAS A SNAKE BEFORE YOU LET ME IN” poem.

Great comments about Syria, Jimmy. You are one of the few people telling the truth about so many issues.

Sociopathic politicians don’t care about average people, and they never will. They only care about their DONORS. So, the only way to get their attention is to (nonviolently) go after the donors. #BlameTheDonors

Consider tying up a donor’s business line, day after day after day, by respectfully asking them to reconsider who they give their money to.

Cost the donors some MONEY and the message will instantly “trickle down” to the politician.

SHAME the politician by nonviolently protesting outside their worship services, and you’ll get their attention. “Governor Snyder, YOUR Tax Breaks Are Killing MY Children.” would look nice on a protest banner.

SHAME the politician by nonviolently protesting outside any Clubs, Restaurants, Country Clubs, etc. that they like to visit.

Make them PERSONA NON GRATA. Make them the PARIAH that they truly deserve to be. Make them pay the wages of sin.

And, it would be great if a TYT app could reach an “Army of Progressives” and have a million of them instantly flooding the CAPITAL SWITCHBOARD with calls.

We Are The Borg. We Are One. You WILL Be Assimilated. : )

The last line should probably have started with “We are Borg.” and not “We are the Borg.” I wasn’t 100% sure.

I know that the crew of the Enterprise refers to them as “The Borg” but I think they just say “Borg.” ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ.

Anyway, a progressive “hive mind” could shut these guys down. United We Stand, Divided We Fall. Together We Join, So Say We All.

Glad so many people enjoyed the Christmas episode, we do run the same Saturnalia segment every year!
