SFR 476: After the Shutdown

–Hey, we’re back after our hiatus and guess what? Tech problems were waiting for us. Typical SFR, in other words…
–So why did we go on hiatus, anyway? It centered on Bobby’s job interfering with our recording times. After he spent half of our 10yr anniversary podcast either away from the mic, or mentally checked out, we knew it was time to step away until things cleared up.
–Are Jason and Bobby going back into ghost hunting? It’s possible! Not because we believe in ghosts again, but because an acquaintance of Bobby’s is reporting some classically interesting issues at a house he has been working on. Might be get the chance to experience it ourselves? If so, it will definitely make good show fodder.
–A new Ghostbusters movie, this time an actual sequel to the 80s films, is in production and set to be released in the summer of 2020. We’re definitely pumped. As Jason said, “it’s what I wanted all along.”
–Bobby got caught up in one of his wife’s favorite shows on Bravo. Learning that it was a true crime story, he read more into it and find out there is a podcast telling the story, and he’s really enjoying it. Today he recommends that podcast, Dirty John.
–A smorgasbord of topics, be it the “controversy” of Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, and the Baby It’s Cold outside song, Jason tells Bobby that it feels so good to be a lone wolf, without a club, and not feeling the pressure to defend your tribe when they are being stupid.
–We also get into the government shutdown and its ramifications, and the possibility that Trump will not be delivering a televised State of the Union address. Bobby doesn’t think that’s such a bad idea, and Jason openly hopes for a return to the days of Thomas Jefferson.
–Bobby brings up the “toxic masculinity” ad that Procter and Gamble recently released, and doesn’t understand why people are angry about its message. Jason thinks it is because people are tired of being lectured to by corporations. “Corporations aren’t your friends,” they just want to sell you stuff. And if you buy into it, you’re a mark. Bobby does have one criticism: where are the Mexicans?

    You are upset about 20% tax???? WOW. OK UK taxes:-
    £0 – £11,500 0%
    £11,501 – £45,000 20% (basic rate)
    £45,001 – £150,000 40% (higher rate)
    Over £150,000 45% (additional rate)

    National Insurance
    Roughly add 12%. So 20% tax becomes 32%, 40% becomes 52%. It is capped eventually.

    I am quite happy to pay that. I retired 6 years early on a private pension. I get a Govt pension in 5 years from now. I have free health care across the board. Apart from dental where prices are capped. I was paid to go to university and given a living allowance but right wing, trickle down governments have ruined that . They also ruined the unemployment payments system and the effectively free housing. We need a dose of socialist government to redirect the tax money from the super rich back to the working people.
