MrJeff2000 Explains It All It’s a mad, mad, mad, mad, um what was I talking about again?

Happy 250th podcast!

This week, I put a brake on the politics and tell two quick stupid crime stories about idiots and their motor vehicles.

Thirty-two years ago last month, I attended my first professional wrestling card at the NJ Meadowlands with a few friends.

Last month, I took my two sons to a pro wrestling card at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.

In the intervening years, a lot has happened in the business. And I've been watching, as a minor obsession.

The MTA announced a bunch of new projects that will revolutionize transportation around New York City and its surrounding boroughs.

More than $27 billion (with a B) for new subway cars, a refurbished LaGuardia Airport, a system to replace MetroCards, and a streetcar system to connect Brookly and Queens residents are being discussed.

And I am surprisingly fine with all of it.

Don't call them by the buzzword-friendly "alt-right."

They are the second coming of the American Nazi party, and they are emboldened by the Republican victories. Since the GOP leadership refuses to repudiate their existence and verbiage, they are coming for their enemies – when indeed they are the enemies of Democracy.

President-Elect Donald Trump is not having an easy time.

Well, who knows what he expected. But it's no cakewalk.

And the band of family and sycophants that have been surrounding him are in-fighting like cats and dogs, desperately scratching to profit and remain in the mix.

Who loses? That's obvious – the American citizen, who voted for him or for any candidate. As well as the 48 percent of the American public that chose NOT to vote this year.

Yes, I know there was an election this week.

In the meantime, let's talk about illegally rented AirBnB apartments and a woman with a crazy number of driver's license suspensions.

Yes, it's another election-based podcast mostly about Donald Trump.

But as the GOP's candidate implodes, he is spewing lies about how he cannot lose, the election will be rigged due to voter fraud. Is this a thing? No. And I've got some articles to back up my thesis.

WikiLeaks released another batch of emails purportedly from Hillary Clinton's campaign chief of staff John Podesta.

In one of them, he received a NEWSWEEK article attachment about Benghazi from Sidney Blumenthal.

The Russian government-controlled news agency Sputnik then EDITED the email and released it as an October Surprise. Less than one day later, Donald Trump read their "news blast" at a public forum, as an indictment of Clinton as Secretary of State.
Except it was completely wrong.

But does it matter at this point? Who are these undecideds and are they really that blind to what is happening in this election cycle?

This week's podcast returns to the theme of minor obsessions.

There is (still) a free loyalty rewards program called viggle.com.

You get points for "checking into" TV shows and pop songs with your phone.

You can then exchange those points for merchandise or gift cards.

I decided to use those points to get my son an iPad several years ago.

And the minor obsession began.
