      If you have a smart phone you can get the app and create an account through the app.

      When I do these interviews, it is only through the microphone, there is no camera involved.

  1. I think that kid was a prime example of ‘deer in the headlights’. He didn’t have a clue what to do. That Native American guy is a professional shit disturber. Piece of scum – he’s just a riot whore. Modern day mercenaries. They’ll sell themselves to the highest bidder so fuckum.

    1. bottomlesscoffee007

      Voice for hire. I never thought of that parallel Britchy. Have drum, will travel. You bring up an aspect that never crossed my mind.

      If there are professional protesters, then is the protest even legitimate or is it simply theater?

        1. bottomlesscoffee007

          You’re absolutely right. What is the point of protest if you have to outsource the mass?

          It’s a pointless protest at that point. I can’t believe that even exists.

      1. If people are being paid to protest, the content of the protest is irrelevant. The reasoning behind the staging is. There’s far too much puppetry of the people going on. The media is yanking everyone’s chain and some nameless, faceless power crazed twats are yanking the media chain.
        Whilst we’re all busy fighting over irrelevant shit like ‘rich kids’ and ‘smug looks’, Bills that allow termination up to birth are being passed. We need to stop fighting each other, stop being led by the nose and see what the fuckwits in BOTH parties are hiding from us and take our country back.

        1. bottomlesscoffee007

          That’s what the hell im talking about!

          Gosh dang it, Britchy I’m so happy you’re an American citizen.

      1. Great discussion between you guys. My politics are definitely more liberal than yours. I was born and have lived my entire life in Southern California. California is more liberal in general.If I find the time to talk with you we might wanna steer clear of politics. Then again I’m not a rabid idiot so it might be a great debate.

        I will say I hate those stupid hats. I hate Trump and every whining, bullshit, self-aggrandizing word that comes out of his mouth.
        Also, living less than a half hour from the border, the wall is a useless waste of taxpayer’s money. There are miles of tunnels under the wall we already have.

        1. bottomlesscoffee007

          Thanks Granny. We could talk about anything really.

          So, is that you’re take on the border/wall or do you speak for everyone who lives along the the border

          1. I wouldn’t say everyone. I live in the San Diego area so there is a lot of military here, Navy & Marine Corps, and they probably support it. I don’t know because I haven’t asked them.

            We already have a wall. There are tunnels under it. Those are facts. The vast majority of people that cross to US aren’t terrorist or criminals, they just want to make money. It’s doing jobs that most Americans won’t lower themselves to do. I have seriously heard people say they wouldn’t pick food, cut grass, be a janitor etc. It’s “beneath”American them.
            Building a wall won’t increase security, we already have a wall.
            And why only Mexico? Why not Canada too? Can terrorists not cross from open areas up north? Is it only brown people we’re worried about?

            1. bottomlesscoffee007

              How do you know that a wall wouldn’t help? Where do you draw that conclusion?

              Do you cite any actual data or sources? Have you done any of the research yourself?

              1. I haven’t done any research. I’m just saying we already have a wall. There is already a huge wall built along the border and there are tunnels under it. I can look for the links to show you the tunnels. The $5 billion or whatever could be better spent on other things. I’m not saying don’t secure the borders. I don’t think building another wall is the answer.

                1. bottomlesscoffee007

                  Granny, you need to be on the next episode with me and Steve. I think it would add another element and a different perspective.

            2. bottomlesscoffee007

              I guess the crime statistics for towns and cities along the northern border compared to crime statistics compared to towns and cities along the southern border should be spoken about.

                1. bottomlesscoffee007

                  I have no idea, but it would be a starting point. If the crime was higher in those areas, then stop the migrants and see what happens. If crime doesn’t go down, then open the border again and continue to search.

                  1. I’ll assign my 24yr old SJW daughter the task of finding crime stats in San Diego area.
                    Also the latest census. I think, I think Hispanic people outnumber Caucasians in CA. Actual legal citizens. I might be wrong but I read or heard that somewhere, I’m almost sure.

                    1. bottomlesscoffee007

                      Intersting. So, what is a hispanic? What is the criteria, a certain hue of the skin, Spanish speaking, catholic?

                    2. No clue what the criteria are.

                      I think Steve made a great point in the podcast about the guy in Boston being removed from the whole wall thing. Someone in New England or Wisconsin will see the Mexican border a lot different from those of us who live close to it. I think there is a lot of misplaced fear.

                    3. bottomlesscoffee007

                      You said it right there, “I think”, not I know or I can prove. Im not saying that is bad, but it is more honest.

                      Isn’t fear subjective though? If someone is scared or if someone feels pain, all of that is personal, is it not?

                    4. Absolutely everything is subjective when it comes to feelings, thoughts and things like pain. By misplaced fear, I mean the media and Trump hyping how “unsafe” our border is. People who’ve never been anywhere near the Mexican border only have that hype to base their opinion, thoughts, fears on.
                      That’s all whatever until you’re asking for support to spend a ridiculous amount of taxpayer’s money for a wall that”will keep us safe”. Most people probably don’t realize that there is already a wall at the border.
                      I’m guilty of not always having all the facts before I form an opinion. I’m human, same as everyone else. I’m just exercising my first amendment rights here. I think the wall is a bullshit waste of money.

                    5. bottomlesscoffee007

                      So, its only people why haven’t been near or lived on the border that feel this way? So, only Trump and the media play up this fear?

                      Is the world a dangerous place or is it safe? Is America a rape culture or is it safe and people are good?

                    6. Well yeah… Once people become personally insulting and rude, I stop listening. I expect the same. There’s no reason people can’t have different views and be civil about it. I love a good debate. I’ve played Devil’s Advocate many times just for the fun of it.

                    7. I enjoyed it too. I’m surprised at and proud of myself for being able to generally make sense since I had Ben yammering and making demands the entire time. Not only is he 10yrs old, he’s autistic and has ADHD.
                      Triple gold stars for me🌟🌟🌟

            1. bottomlesscoffee007

              That is a generalization Granny. How can you make such a grand statement?

              What about the people who do want a wall?

  2. Steve: Thank you for the shout out!

    As far as my having a sexual assault conversation with two dudes, well…the jokes here are painfully obvious.

    Seriously though, can we talk about the MAGA gear a second? Do we know whether or not the kids bought that stuff as souvenirs while in DC or has it been confirmed they all actually were sent from home with it packed already? From my views of the videos, all of it looks pretty pristine and new. I think you’re possibly making an incorrect assumption that the kids’ parents sent them on a school trip to make that particular political statement.

    Also, I like Nickelback. ::shrug::

    Gotta get to sleep, so I’ll try to listen to the rest later…this one is super long, BTW.

    Heather, after seeing the conversation between you and coffee in the comments section of his blog on harassment and assault, I think we have very similar opinions. Also I think there is a real value in a girl and two dudes talking about harassment and assault versus two dudes talking about it. But your opinion is irrelevant now because you like Nickleback. J/K.☺

        You just love to question me. lol I know her blog. She follows me. I have mostly a TrueBeliever(Christian has been watered down to much.) blog but I have looked and if I ever can afford it, I will get a private blog on here and get serious with her help. 🙂

  5. Hi there!

    First, I just wanted to mention that I found you in my spam folder yesterday night, and I want to appologize for the delay that caused in my replying to your kind words! Thank you for the comments, I’ll get back to you shortly.

    This conversation with Steve was very interesting, and I must say I hesitated a lot before deciding to leave this comment. See, being a Northern neighbour, my reality is very different from yours. For a long time, I have wanted to chat with a pro gun American about the importance of firearms in the States. Not to debate, because to me there is no wrong or right side, just two very different ways to look at it. I’d just really like to understand.

    Living in an almost gun-free province, I don’t get that need for guns, and hearing sentences like ”guns are essential” gives me goosebumps. I don’t feel entitled to say what the U.S. government should do, because I am not an American. I am just glad that our legislation doesn’t allow this much liberty to every Joe Blow with a clean record here.

    I knew when I started reading your posts and listening to your podcasts, that some of the topics would shake me a little. But if I have sized you well, so far, I think that we are alike in the fact that we like to understand points of view different from our own.

    So if you’d like to discuss that, it’d be a pleasure to read your thoughts on the subject 🙂

    1. bottomlesscoffee007

      That’s the thing Cryanny. It’s not about what is right or wrong for any nation. It’s about what is right or wrong for each individual.

      Our states and nations have and are slowing taking away the right of the individual. If you don’t like guns, then you should not be made to have a gun. On the other hand, if someone feels the need to own a gun, who is the government or even more the corporations to tell anyone they are not allowed to have a gun?

      We are either independent individuals or we are ruled by beurocrats and corporations. We don’t elect the beurocrat or the corporations, yet they are the ones dictating our laws

    2. bottomlesscoffee007

      That’s what I was saying about here in America. If a state wishes to ban something, whether that’s guns or anything for that matter, I have no issue with that. It’s the people that live there, they should be the ones to make that decision.

    3. bottomlesscoffee007

      If I want to maintain my freedom, then I must grant that same freedom to those who disagree with me to the core.

      That is the only way to remain free.

      1. As I said previously, I found the episode very interesting. Very thought provoking on many subjects… Some points I agree with you two, and for others, we’re not on the same page at all, but I’m not going to comment on everything you discussed, I don’t want to break your comment box! Mouaahahahahaha

        I agree with you on the fact that we must keep our individual liberties, and that a country’s people should have a say about laws and regulations where they live. That’s the very basics of democracy. But I think there are limits, and sometimes, it can’t work that way. I remember a line from an American comedian (I forgot who said it, sorry) that went like ”Look at the average American man, and remember that half of the population is dumber than that!”

        I am going to be extreme here, but it is just to explain my point. Let’s say a majority of people in the States decides that it is necessary to be allowed to have nuclear weapons, do you think the society, as a whole, should give every American man and woman the right to buy and use them?

        And that brings me to the question I had for you. Because it is not really the political side of that question that really interests me. What really makes me curious is why people like yourself feel the need to own guns. Why is it necessary, as a simple citizen, to have such weapons at home?

        I am not anti-gun. I get that shooting a gun can be fun. When I was younger, my father had a hunting rifle and he showed me how to use it. I enjoyed shooting cans in the woods with him, and I get the power feeling it gives you to hold one in your hands.

        Here, in Canada, some people like guns, and some people don’t, just like South of the border. But as a society, we don’t feel the need to own one. What do you think makes a majority of people in the States feel that need? And again, I am not talking about the ”should you have the right to own firearm” question, but beyond that, why do you feel like it is important to have guns?

        1. bottomlesscoffee007

          Well, that’s the question then for everything isn’t it.

          Just because I believe abortion is murder, does that mean everyone has to have the same outlook?

          Society justified slavery before, does that mean we look to society for answers?

          Is society the final authority, has society throughout our history shown to be an accurate measure of what is truly right and what is blatantly wrong?

          We could go back and forth over what is extreme and what is not, however, who we or anyone for that matter to tell anyone how they should live their lives and what they should value?

          Is homosexuality a mental disorder? Is gun ownership based in paranoia?

          All of this and much more focuses solely on people control. It is meant to take the independence away from the individual and form dependency on society and government.

          If we as individuals don’t have the freedom to decide for ourselves, how will that work out on a larger scale? Flags and nations change, yet it is and always has been the individual that remains.

          If I do not live your life and vice versa, then whenever I would dictate anything, I would not have to deal with the ramifications of those decisions.

          We as individuals are either independent or we are not. If we are independent, then me and me alone will suffer the consequences or pros of my decisions.

          I think that if people were truly independent and free to decide for themselves, they would always choose what is best for themselves, on a larger scale I believe that alone would bring about more peace and understanding.

          This constant push and pull, from one direction to the next is what causes this type of devastation. And only because we as individuals are not steering the ship.

          1. If I get what you are saying right, in an ideal world, each individual would be independant, and free to make decisions, based on their own beliefs and principles… No established rules or laws that applied to mankind as a whole.

            One sentence in your comment really caught my attention. ”If we are independent, then me and me alone will suffer the consequences or pros of my decisions.” I have to disagree with you on this, unless you are thinking about living as a hermit.

            As Jean-Paul Sartre said, ”One’s freedom begins where another’s begins”. I think that the moment you live among other people, your decisions impact others around you wether you want it or not.

            If you are a good person (which I believe you are), you’d probably set yourself personal rules to live by, that would make sure you live a good life, and make the most out of the time you have to live on this earth. But, unfortunately, there are a lot of people who I think, wouldn’t bother with acting good. And if people like that hurt you or your loved ones in any way, revenge would probably the only way out, wouldn’t you say?

            I am not saying that either the U.S. or Canadian governments are ideal, or that all the laws in place are necessary, but I think that giving every individual absolute freewill would probably create more problems than those it would solve.

            But maybe I am wrong… Would this ideal idea of a ”free to make your own decisions” world have a minimum of common rules? I hope you find this exchange as interresting as I do 🙂

            1. bottomlesscoffee007

              You could be right. I realize, that what I propose is fantasy, really. It would depend on how each and every individual interprets it.

              I guess, look at the Indians or any aboriginal tribe of people. They war, they have laws, they still have crime. But relatively speaking they are free. Savagery still would happen, as people can be savage.

              I don’t think that anything will ever be perfect, I just think that we are too constrained today. I realize that in America we are freer than any other nation, yet it seems as time continues to tick, we are being strangled as well.

              If I had my way, I’d live on the side of a mountain, cut off from society, but that’s just my preference.

              The laws would be what they always have been. Rape, murder and theft would remain as the taboos.
