#108 – Guns and Butter
An episode of Lewis Black’s Rantcast
Our host checks in with us from home again this week as he returned from his vacation in Vermont. While in Vermont, Lewis ate at an absolutely terrific restaurant called the Reluctant Panther. All compliments go to the chef, Segal Rockland. It was a spectacular Thanksgiving meal. It really feels like Christmas up there.
When are we going to realize that our current gun laws don’t work? It’s astounding how after the recent slate of mass shootings nothing will still get done. It’s all just senseless, senseless violence. The topic of gun laws is just a never ending argument that just goes in circles. It’s never going to change. 63% of the American people live paycheck to paycheck. How is that possible? This is the richest country on Earth and over half the country is struggling to get by. And yeah, yeah, we know about inflation. Here’s an idea, and this one helps with leviating the cost of living in this country. Free healthcare. Canada, and a lot of countries in Europe, already provide the citizens free healthcare. We should be able to do it too. Adding on to this week’s bad news, 2,700 people were from a furniture factory in Mississippi. 2,700 people. Every single one of those workers are going to have a really difficult time recovering from that. And that’s just not right. As we are about 25 days out from Christmas, our host reminds you to take care of another. It’s the most important thing we can do for each other. Especially during the Holiday season.
This week’s live rants come from the Waterville Opera House in Waterville, Maine and the Paramount Theater – Rutland, Vermont
