We take freedom for granted and we don't actually realize how free we really are. Sure we might be fighting for our rights. We might be fighting for our livelihood, but we have the freedom to fight. In this episode I talk about a movie that I was in called "Don't Shoot! I'm The Guitar Man" a true Story about rock and roll legend, Buzzy Martin, who dedicated his time to teach the prisoners of San Quentin music. As I read Buzzy's book and the script my eyes were opened and the precious gift of freedom is what we need to take care of.
I also talk about the Podcast of the Day which is "Barley and Me" with comedian Ben Rice, a wonderful podcast about beer. Do I need to explain more?
In case you were wondering who made my theme song, it was created by Mike Glyphix Abdelmessih who will be coming out with some phenomenal beats for some promising artists. To see his work, go to his Instagram account @shubrawi.
And finally, I want to thank Wacist Webb (who isn't a racist and thinks racism is wack) for being my producer today. You can also listen to him on the Videogame BANG! podcast.

The holiday season is finally here.. and no I'm not going to take a dump on this or ridicule the meaning of Christmas.. I actually love the Christmas Season, minus the shopping, plus drinks and holiday movies equals happy Mike. In this episode I talk about what my favorite holiday movies are... Die Hard, enough said. I also talk about how actor/comedian Ryan Boyd and comedian/veteran Isaac Ames took it upon themselves to drive to Standing Rock and be one of the many on the front lines protecting the Sioux Tribe.
These two guys are local heroes and we should follow in their footsteps. Whatever you need to do to get involved, get involved. Dont worry about Donald Trump taking our rights away, Just act like Kevin McCallister from Home Alone and protect your rights with a bb gun, some paint cans, and a tarantula.

Trump.. Hillary.. Millennials and Protesting.. What do they all have in common? They are not harnessing their energy to protect Standing Rock. If you have been living under a rock the past few months, I don't blame you, but you need to know whats going on with Standing Rock. There is a pipeline being drilled into their fresh water supply. Over 17 million people will be effected by this. This is important, this is what we need to focus on. You can hear my rant as I make fun of all the stuff I said in the beginning. I also talk about the history of Thanksgiving, how we should unite with Native Americans and also be F'n thankful for what we have.

Who is Bishop Bullwinkle? He is the man who created a song called,"Hell Naw.. To the Naw Naw Naw". This is the song you want to listen to when you see B.S. coming from a mile away.. like this years election. I'm so glad that this election as almost done, over, and out of our heads for another four years. We need to focus on better things like the Chicago Cubs, Standing Rock, and Batman: Return of the Caped Crusader.

What makes us who we are today is from our parents. Good or bad it made you who you are and you have the choice to take your gifts and share it with the world or keep it for yourself. In this episode I talk about the World Series being a wonderful distraction from a horrible election. If the Indians win they join the Cavs as champions which means the Cleveland Browns need to step up their game and become vicious and start ripping peoples face off.
I also talk about the wonderful Podcast of the day, and a secret underground club called the "Dead Dads Club". If you lost your father, I'm sorry, but you are now apart of that a lot of people have in common with. You are not alone.

Creepy Clowns, Racism, World War 3, Greed... all comes from one thing: Bad Parenting. If everyone had good parents or at least a good role model our world wouldn't be where it is right now. All this can change if parents sat down with their kids and spent some quality time with them, such as a family dinner. Sit down and eat with your kids, that isn't very hard to do... baby steps to save humanity.
Topics Include: Ric Flair, Halle Berry, Bill Burr, Monday Morning Podcast, Comedy, Clowns, Creepy, WW3, World War 3, Discipline, Responsibility, parenting, entitlement, stand-up, Sacramento, Facebook, Macho Man, Mike Betancourt, podcast of the day, WWE, wrestling
Life is so much better being a political atheist. I'm not taking sides, I'm not yelling, and I don't care. I do care about our future and if our votes actually mattered (Super delegates sabotaging votes) Then I would vote for Jill Stein because she has great views that actually make sense, but no one is listening and Hillary Trump and Donald Clinton regime has taken over.
I don't believe anything my government says anymore and I'm okay with that because there is more to life than politics, such as PPAP. This weeks POD I tell you about a podcast that I challenge you to get through even a minute of. I couldn't even get through 30 seconds. I talk about the importance of family and life being more important than the value of the dollar. I also talk about how TV can change the way you think.
