Cousin Carmine is back with Jeff and Tony to discuss NJ’s new Governor, Phil Murphy, who was inaugurated on January 16, 2018. Murphy brings his 23 years of “experience” working for Goldman Sachs, and a stint as Ambassador to Germany during Obama’s presidency (Obama gave Murphy lots of juice when he supported his campaign against Republican Candidate Lt. Governor Kim Guadagno).
Some of Murphy’s stated agenda: social justice, equal pay for women, a $15 minimum wage, legalized recreational marijuana, immigration reform, tougher gun laws, and making NJ the California of the East.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions is using his position in order to bring attention to his old-fashioned, dangerous view that marijuana is a BAD drug that needs to be prohibited and controlled by the Federal Government.
Jeff and Tony discuss the growing trend of Americans becoming cannabis-friendly. Also discussed:
1. A comparison of the War on Drugs to Alcohol Prohibition
2. New Hampshire’s attempts to legalize recreational marijuana
3. The failure of the Drug War and the damage it has caused over the decades
Jeff and Tony discuss the fact that people are remaining in a state of childhood entirely too long. Remember how everyone’s grandparents were married with several children by the ripe old age of 25? Nowadays, it’s hard to find a 25 year old that has a real career and does not live at their parents’ house.
Part of the problem is education. We tackle this, with a special emphasis on a subject near and dear to our hearts: Outrageous College Tuition. Enjoy.

Part 3 of Jeff and Tony’s rambling session with Rob of RBV.

Later, we move on to microgrid energy technologies being explored by states, municipalities, and even hospitals and residential complexes to create disaster redundancies, and the potential for such a movement to pressure the long standing government granted monopoly system entrenched around much of the US.
