I missed this being uploaded on the day it was uploaded. I am glad I found it. I am on vcay so I won’t be able to watch youtube if you upload on it. I will be delayed with a lot of vids. I still find a way to listen/watch somethings. Nothing will keep me from being up to date with these awesome podcasts on this website. I just can’t listen to the past podcasts. I am hoping I won’t be behind more then 2 weeks. I am away for a week.

Thank you for all of the laughs. You are all amazing.

That reading rainbow guy was on youtube.com/scishow or youtube.com/crashcourse I forget what of the vlogbrother channels but it was one of those. That helped with the funding.

Its like Xmas morning, I thought there would be no Jimmydore show show this week and I wake up to find a new one waiting for me on this pleasant sun morning.

Jimmy Dore,

I appreciate that it’s more tactful to say that we just shouldn’t judge yet with regard to Bergdahl, because we don’t have any of the facts, and that’s true. We shouldn’t judge either way, yet. However, why does everybody treat it as though it is never ok to abandon your post in war? This isn’t some desperate war to defend our own country. This was a ruthless invasion of a nation for no reason other than the bloodlust that followed 09/11, a terrorist act perpetrated by zero Afghans. And even if it was all Afghans, what good does it do to punish the dirt poor people of that horrifically war torn state? It wasn’t good fighting the Soviets in a proxy war by arming the people who became the Taliban, and it isn’t good to invade in 2002, just because .. well someone had to pay for 09/11.
We don’t know anything about Bergdahl’s case yet, but some rumors are that he witnessed some horrible horrible shit, including babies getting run over by military trucks. That’s what happens when the world’s most powerful empire invades one of the least developed nations on Earth, you get babies run over. Now, maybe it makes you a good soldier to just keep looking away from that, but it sure doesn’t make you a good human being. Any moral human being should be disgusted by what we’re doing over there. Read Scahill’s Dirty Wars to find out just how sick and twisted shit is over there. It is a completely immoral war, not of defense, but of empire. If Bergdahl is found to have wandered off into the mountains to face certain death instead of carry on with the horror, I can’t see how that is something we should condemn him for.
Maybe instead of committing horrible atrocities yet again in a small, poor country like Vietnam and Afghanistan, all the military should “wander off” the base and come back home and secure our actual democracy which is under constant threat every day by billionaires with plutocratic agendas.

Here is that email he sent that ever one is talking about:

“The future is too good to waste on lies. And life is way too short to care for the damnation of others, as well as to spend it helping fools with their ideas that are wrong. I have seen their ideas and I am ashamed to even be american. The horror of the self-righteous arrogance that they thrive in. It is all revolting. In the US army you are cut down for being honest [...] but if you are a conceited brown nosing shit bag you will be allowed to do what ever you want, and you will be handed your higher rank… The system is wrong. I am ashamed to be an american. And the title of US soldier is just the lie of fools [...]The US army is the biggest joke the world has to laugh at. It is the army of liars, backstabbers, fools, and bullies. [...] The few good SGTs are getting out as soon as they can, and they are telling us privates to do the same. [...] I am sorry for everything here. These people need help, yet what they get is the most conceited country in the world telling them that they are nothing and that they are stupid, that they have nfo idea how to live. We don’t even care when we hear each other talk about running their children down in the dirt streets with our armored trucks [...] We make fun of them in front of their faces, and laugh at them for not understanding we are insulting them…I am sorry for everything. The horror that is america is disgusting [...] There are a few more boxes coming to you guys. Feel free to open them, and use them.”

How the fuck do you not A). agree with him just based on all the other stories of abuse during the war that have come out (which is what happens when you have a war with no clear mission and an unclear enemy fought by young men who have been whipped up into a frenzy) and B). not understand why, if he did indeed do it, abandon his post.

This whole thing is gross. His parents got death threats. DEATH THREATS TO A P.O.W.’S PARENTS! America is disgusting.

I love hearing Robert Yasumura scream OH MY GOD!!!

What does Stef think of Common Core?

This guy makes it look pretty bleak

And the white house response is vague and ominous. Will not answer “Will states lose federal funding if Common Core is not implemented?”.

I love the premium content. You guys are amazing and brilliant. You really make my life better with laughter. It is a great way to sleep at night. I am behind in youtubeland but can easily sleep to the podcasts/right after the podcasts.

Keep up the amazing work. ♥ it so much.

Meant to say that I went back to your old podcast just the premium content only because I love it so much.

I love the new official music used in the premium content it sounds like a news station music. I loved the old music to. I also finally was able to donate to this show. I gave you and wolfpac some extra money. I was finally able to do that. I want control over my own money but I still need to sneak it. I couldn’t do it while I was on vcay so I had to wait an extra week. I would have donated it last week but wasn’t really alone.

Thank you for the laughs. I love you and your friends so much.

Stef is not a fan of common core, it is more of the same, moving towards standardized tests and corp[orate control of those tests.

Yeah it looks pretty scary. Bill Gates wasn’t a good guy when he was in charge of Microsoft and I don’t expect he’s changed at all.

ps. Not to nick-pick, its no big deal and I don’t mean to stick my nose in where it doesn’t belong, but it looks like, maybe, your web site is missing an icon. This means that you have a blank square beside the bookmark and you are missing icon on the page’s tab. I only tested it with firefox, but I think your html tag needs a line like this
