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

The MTA just enacted another fare hike.

There was immediate, understandable protest.

But this is a broken record and an indefensible system.

I picked up 1,400 books this week to sell in December as part of my temple's annual Bazaar.

The book sale routinely gathers collectors and dealers who spend three days going through beteween 20,000 and 40,000 books.

With my involvement, the organizers are hoping to get closer to 40,000. And if they continue to work me like the past few weeks, they might just reach that goal.

The CitiBike program is expanding into upper Manhattan and areas of Brooklyn.

Staten Island feels ignored, but then again, it wouldn't be Staten Island otherwise.

The 2nd Avenue Subway expansion (part one) has attracted riders. But will it ever get to Part 2?

Finally, board games are making a comeback in the Digital Age.

Our Vulgarian-in-Chief continues to be an embarrassment for the nation.

From refusing to shake hands with black ministers to not opening doors for his wife to signing orders preventing the EPA from announcing any changes to its policies (which means lessening of federal regulations of emissions standards is coming).

The disgusting reaction to his inauguration and the subsequent Womens Marches, plus the outrageous lying of his flunkies to the media and American Public.

It's a disgrace and it's going to get worse, folks. Much worse.

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.

If you believe Donald Trump is going to be a good President, this isn't the podcast for you to listen to.

Donald Trump is a venal, awful person, a lousy failed businessman, and a disgusting human being.

In this episode, I outline some of the more recent, egregious incidents of late from his planned administration.

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.

Both Governor Chris Christie (NJ) and Andrew Cuomo (NY) have problems with their electorates. It will be interesting to see how their next campaigns go.

Also a quick drive-by bashing of the President-Elect.

Happy New Year!

Hate crimes are on the rise 35 percent on mass transit in NYC since the election.

I witnessed a possible incident this past week.

Yet it did not draw any discernible reaction from commuters.

Are we all hardened to the treatment of our fellow man, or are we just hardended in our resolve to be left alone as we transport ourselves?

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.
