On this episode of AirWreckRadio, Stacey kicks things off talking about an absolutely ridiculous country song he heard recently. What song? “Redneck Crazy” by Tyler Farr! The song is about a man who learns that his girlfriend is cheating on him, and that sucks. Rather than approaching the situation like an adult, however, the character in the song instead commits several property crimes and harasses a woman, while also drinking and driving, and definitely intending to assault a person. While we at AirWreckRadio understand that it’s only entertainment, we also know that people identify with the music they listen to, and this song, like Carrie Underwood’s “Before He Cheats,” sets a very low bar for what is appropriate behavior for people in a relationship.
In the news: Newly elected Congresswoman, Rashida Tlaib made history when she was sworn into office last week… and then she kept right on swearing! Oh no! A lady said a dirty word, and she’s not even a white lady! You can imagine how Fox News reacted to this “Lady Locker-Room Talk.”
Also in the news, the 116th Congress is the most diverse congress ever, and that’s great! Democrats elected a rainbow of people, men and women, into office. Republicans, on the other hand, elected an almost entirely mono-chromatic slew of white men. Hey Republicans, you need diversity if you want a seat in the future.
Closing things up, the federal government remains partially shut down because Donald Trump insists on getting $5 billion to pay for a wall that we don’t need, and nobody even wanted until he started insisting that we do need it. Unfortunately, this little Trumpy-tantrum is costing thousands of federal employees their paychecks. Don’t worry though, the White House promises that your tax returns will be on time. This White House promises a lot though, and it remains unclear how Trump intends to keep this promise considering that the IRS is part of the shutdown, and is currently about 70,000 employees short of actually being able to process the tax returns of 175 million Americans.
