  1. James, did you become a Cubs fan because Billy Corgan is a huge Cubs fan? Haha~

    • Actually…yes. But having been a fan for 15 years now and having lived through the Steve Bartman incident in real time I now think of myself as a full-fledged fan. Oh well, maybe next century…

  2. Thank you for the comment. No thank you for your condescending attitude. For your information James and I have discussed the reasons behind the push for legalization of marijuana at least half a dozen times over the years. For example:

    James has also discussed the issue many times on his old MediaMonarchy podcast. I realize not everyone has listened to everything we’ve ever done, but perhaps you could give us the benefit of the doubt rather than assuming that we have never thought of such things.

    • Thanks for the reply, Gary. Rather than delete the comments I think it’s an instructive exchange for everyone (those reading as well). If I come across as curt it is only because I am told hundreds of times a day via YouTube comments, emails, voice messages and website comments what to say, what not to say, how to say it, how not to say it, how I should or shouldn’t dress, who I should or should not associate with, etc. etc. etc. Obviously given that I’ve been doing this for 8 years it’s mostly water off a duck’s back, but it can be frustrating when I perceive that a subscriber is implying that I or my guest have not thought about something that we have in fact talked about multiple times over a period of years. (Dan Dicks and I discussed the government’s ulterior motives for legalizing pot in Canada just four days ago if you’ll recall) It makes me wonder if we have to bring up every aspect of every topic we’re discussing every time we’re discussing it from here to eternity, no matter how much of a digression that may be from the topic at hand. As I say, I hope you can appreciate that such considerations can be frustrating, and again if my reply seemed curt it is only because your comment was the 78th such comment I have received today.

      Once again, that’s the human angle behind my seemingly curt reply. My apologies if it hurt your feelings, as that was not my intention. Hopefully we can both learn to better appreciate the motivations, intentions and humanity of each other in our interactions going forward to avoid such mis-communications in the future.

  3. The DNA database request by the Federal government is much like my experience with the Ron Paul “Campaign For Liberty.” I fell for the Ron Paul campaign in 2012. It was shortly after I had come out of the matrix mindset…still had some fog. Well, after he gathered all of his momentum, he broke his promise and bowed out of the campaign. Then began to send me warnings that the federal government was attempting to acquire his database of supporters. The only way to stop this was to “Donate money.” There was a preemptive apology from C4L for the feds getting my name and info UNLESS I donated money. I was like “F**K!” That bastard was working for them all along. So, if you donated to Ron Paul, your on the list.

    James, I am listening to your “Ron Paul Trap” podcast right now. I’m only 9 minutes into it and I am sort of relieved to hear that you too actually thought that Ron Paul was the real deal and supported his campaign. You seemed to have evolved away from the whole voting Selection process altogether now. I say that I am sort of relieved, because you are probably the most credible journalist I have ever “followed” and it gives me hope that my intellectual prowess may one day reach a level nigh unto yours. All that to say, we are not flawless.

  4. They should’ve allowed Billy Sianis to bring his goat into the game! They have to change their name if they ever want to win.
