2 Angry Buds – July 2016 Edition

 

Mel & Vic contemplate recent massacres by both ISIS and plain old outraged men — are they perhaps just brothers from another mother?  The discussion then turns to the sorry state of the Republican party, as it launches its national convention in Cleveland, Ohio.  With a party platform that basically turns every federal thing (the FDA, the FCC, the EPA, public education, fresh water, federal lands, etc.) over to private corporations or state management, they wonder how that little issue of corporate profits might affect  we, the people’s future quality of life . . . not to mention the little problem of a Drumpf in the White House!

2 Angry Buds – June 2016 Edition

Mel & Vic return to the “airwaves” to recap their year of absence and agonize over how to spend millions of imaginary dollars.  Anyone else feel $4.8 million is a bit much to pay for a pair of speakers?  Hmmm.
