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

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?

A bunch of stories about how the MTA is still as broken as it was last year, when I recapped stuff in a podcast I reprised last week.

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.

So the verdict came in shortly after my last true crime podcast and the defendant was found....well, real guilty.

Also, some talk about the environment and why it's worth five cents per one-use bag to help clean up the planet.

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?

It sounds like a broken record but it's more indicative of a broken political system.

Donald Trump is losing the Presidential race. But to listen to him and his surrogates, he is in the lead and Hillary Clinton is doing everything underhanded to steal the election from him.

Newt Gingrich, Chris Christie, and Rudy Giuliani, the Three Stooges of the Apocalypse, will say any reprehensible thing because they crave power. Power that the next President of the United States could bequeath to them.

Luckily, at this rate, it won't be Donald Trump.

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.

My standing workstation is two cardboard boxes.

I've been using my office chair for 16+ years and it no longer rises, yet I have yet to request a replacement.

The chair before that was broken, but I avoided trashing it by simply not leaning backwards until building services forcibly removed it from my office.

In other words, health in the workplace was not one of my primary concerns until this year.
