Seriously Could You Whine Some More?!
After the recent episode 12 you will get the typical post election complainer views and attitudes from the two hosts. I am extremely disappointed in Paris having listened to his work since The Dark Knight movie review in '08. I have had enough and am dome with all related podcasts. The common sense person who is unbiased is tired of blaming problems on the Trump factor. Take responsibility and do something with your life without this fabricated excuse that all now seem to have ready to deploy for when their lives go inevitably wrong.
These hosts have the protester mentality and if you don't think the way they do then they would clearly call you out with insults and would intimidate with violence. You know how some cultures handle things. So much for acceptance by those who disagree, the whole reason for all your outbursts; to accept others. It's people like you guys who make me sick and I get the benefit of vetting out the slow and backwards thinkers types in my line of work and if I knew you acted this way you'd be gone.
Ive been listener of gamertagradio for a quick minute. Parris is a co host of that podcast and Ive enjoyed his thoghts on many different subjects(he also has a podcast called the balcony and remember when) The only way to describe him and hopefully sell you on to listening to this podcast is this. Parris is like a Mid-Season fanally on a hit tv show, Once your done with an episode you think "Wait. . . I have to wait how long for the next episode"?
