We have become the Veruca Salt of the world. America has become spoiled in her ways and this has led us where we are today: with a billionaire, a Socialist Senator, and a corrupt ex-First Lady running for president. But these are the candidates we deserve. Currently, the voting age is at 18. But should it be raised? How much does an 18 year old fresh out of high school actually ‘know’ about the world? It is easy for these politicians and candidates to corrupt the political system and continue to spoil our lives. A young adult’s mind can be easy to corrupt if a candidate and/or politician says the right things and makes the right promises. And aren’t we all to blame for allowing this to go on?

There are a lot of pychopaths walking around in the world. Some countries even have psychpaths in charge. Nine countries together, have over 15,000+ nuclear weapons. What are the odds that a psychopath will one day find his or her way to control just one of these death dealers? In North Korea, there already is a maniac in charge of 6-8 nukes. Recently, London, England elected it’s first Muslim mayor. This guy may be a great guy. But it is no secret that England has an ever-growing population of Muslims. Some of whom rant and rave about taking over the world one day and flying the flag of Islam over Buckingham Palace. Could England’s Parliament one day be over-ran with Muslims who wish death upon the enemies of Islam? England posseses over 200+ nukes. It is not too far-fetched to ask that question. So the guys talk about this and how instead of worrying about the possibility of an all out nuclear war occurring in our lifetime, most people are concerned about who can use what bathroom and what transexual is posing for a magazine cover.

Coming off of the premiere of Captain America: Civil War, the guys give their thoughts on the film and tie it’s story into the current state of the nation and world. Most people see superhero movies for what they are: flashy characters fighting evil and injustice. But many of these movies have underlying themes which can relate very closely to the real world.

In light of recent events, CHADMAN welcomes his friend and fellow combat vet, Jordan Allman to the show to discuss veteran non-profits and how easily they can let their reputations and donations become more important than actually helping veterans. Especially when these organizations begin to fire employees for not wanting to play along and by chastising anybody who questions their actions. Both CHADMAN and Jordan were a part of one local organization in Bakersfield, CA and got to see how things are really done on the inside and away from the spotlight. They also discuss the ’22 a day’ veteran suicide statistic, which has veterans and civilians alike doing a push up challenge to bring awareness to veteran suicide. The only problem is that the numbers are inaccurate and the research does not reflect all 50 states. CHADMAN has been very vocal about this. Unfortunately, this has been proven to be upsetting to fellow veterans. But the facts and numbers do not lie. As seen here in this Washington Post article from 2015: https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/fact-checker/wp/2015/02/04/the-missing-context-behind-a-widely-cited-statistic-that-there-are-22-veteran-suicides-a-day/ This episode is intended to bring awareness of it’s own: That just because an organization has money, connections, and access to the media, that does not make them the BE ALL / END ALL for veterans. And also, that all of the good deeds that they do can be erased by a few bad actions or examples of unprofessionalism.
