Dave Smith came over to my apartment to catch me up on the state of America over the last year or so. We’ve gone through a lot of change as a country. Gay marriage was legalized, racial tension with the police came to a head, government spending reached new heights and much more. Dave broke down all the important American stories and we analyzed them together. Ahir Shah, Alex Kealy, and Alex Smith are my roommates for the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and they weighed in on the intro as outside observers of what’s going on in the good old US of A.

Ron Paul’s What If speech


Ron Paul leaves Congress with a few last words.
 

The clip of Hillary Clinton laughing during an interview about getting a child rapist off. I don’t think this is nearly as bad as Dave does. She’s laughing about the system. It’s not fair to expect people to feel as grave as you’d like for decades.
