WTW108: Tech takes over the news, let’s find common ground after voting day

In this episode, video games history is getting erased. Older games are well archived, but XBox era games are getting harder to experience.

Tech Sully breaks down the recent tech news from DDoS hitting the Internet to the most recent #PodestaEmails.

Tech rounds out the episode with a prediction about the next four years.

At this point the election is on rails, an unless either candidate is clapped in irons before the election one of these monsters is going to be president, strap in and enjoy the ride.

We’ve mentioned before how little politics should matter in our daily lives, and The Podcaste would like to remind you that losing friends or family over this stupid election isn’t worth it. Find common ground with your loved ones, and avoid the conversations that get toxic.

So keep talking it out, and for no reason here is a Corgi dressed as Captain America.

Tech and Gun are joined by Dr. Jason Arthur Taylor to discuss some real news stories.  What does the old lady shooting down a drone mean for property rights and technological evolution?  Hillary’s use of “Bleachbit” shows intent, but what was she hiding and did hackers get the goods before she could delete?  Does Uber just straight up hate people?  Should the government vet immigrants by social media?  Listen to the lively volley!

Gun breaks down 10 of the misconceptions that Americans, both Democrat and Republican have regarding The Islamic Republic of Iran.

♠ ♣ ♥ ♦  ●  ♠ ♣ ♥ ♦  ●  ♠ ♣ ♥ ♦  ●  ♠ ♣ ♥ ♦  ●  ♠ ♣ ♥ ♦


Show notes:

I’ve tried to stay apolitical with the #TopTenTuesday episodes, but in honor of my favorite director Mania Akbari, my professors who were refugees of the Iranian Revolution, the continuing “revolution” and the Iran Iraq war, Sgt. Kurosh of the US Army and author Reza Kahlili.

Top Ten Misconceptions about Iran

1. D Iranians are black or Arab
– Caucasian, Persian

2. R/D They Speak Arabic
– Farsi

3. D Iran always was a very conservative Islamic country
– Under the Shah the culture more emulated western, specifically French style and fashion

4. D Iran is now a Democracy.
– The democracy at the highest levels is a show. True reform candidates are not allowed to run and if they are in some respect allowed to run, they won’t win. The Ayatollah runs the country and picks the leader.

5. R/D Iran started the Arab spring. *facepalm*

6. D America installed the Shah.

7. D The IRI did bad stuff but they’ve changed and now they’re reasonable.
– You might read the book “A time to betray” and think, well, that was a couple decades ago, I’m sure they fine now.
– They are making WMDs
– They HAVE NOT claimed their Nuclear is for peace, that’s all coming from OUR GOVERNMENT
– They continue to support Terrorists both inside and outside of Iran

8. R Iran supports ISIS
– Islamic Republic of Iran does not support the Islamic State, IRI is Shia and IS Sunni, they fight, they are currently fighting against each other on multiple fronts.

9. D Iran, since they fight ISIS, are good guys and we have more in common with them the differences.
– We in America are a multi-cultural, socially liberal Democratic Republic, which means even our “Conservative” politicians are still pro-freedom of speech and religious freedom since those concepts were in the founding of our country. IRI is a Theocracy, Remember, the first I in IRI is Islamic- just like Islamic state, but as I pointed out before, they are a different kind of Muslim Theocracy, so that why they butt heads, it’s NOT because, like us they want freedom and civil rights to all, it’s because of hyper-conservative religious reasons, not to mention the baser concepts of territory and defense. They have a ZION FORCE (Neruye Quds) which is a special fighting force who’s ultimate goal is in their name, the Muslim religious term for Jerusalem. To put that in perspective, Israel actual is where Jerusalem is and are predominantly Jewish yet THEY DON’T HAVE A “ZION” FORCE, and haven’t since the time of the British Army Occupation.

10. D Islamic Republic of Iran should have all Iranian assets because they are the country
– this is not the government of Iran that had any friendly ties with, this is a criminal government. “The Revolution” wasn’t what American’s think a revolution is these days, a few protests and then voting in somebody you like- no, it was a REAL and BLOODY Revolt that put the Ayatollah’s government in power

Iran isn't the IRI

The world is kind of on fire at the moment. We would like to say that France breaks our hearts, Turkey is confusing us and the attacks in the US are infuriating.
Taking things issue by issue:
1. The Police Shootings and the Shooting of Police
America is a free country, not the freest but pretty darn free. When police use force, it’s a matter of record. Each incident is reviewed. As aggravated as people are with police in this country, they have no clue what a violent and corrupt police force really looks like.
This is what a violent and corrupt police force looks like:
See, in America, a drug dealer gets a hero’s welcome into martyrdom if he dies by the hands of the police in circumstances that are even remotely questionable. In the Philippines, just being known as a drug dealer could very well be a death sentence, and the same .38 revolver might be found on your corpse that was found on dozens of others shot by police earlier that same month.
If you don’t see the difference between that and here you’re a crazy person. If you aren’t a crazy person, you should be able to state your complaint against US Law Enforcement in a reasonable and logically CASE by CASE basis. Gun is up in arms about Philando Castille, Tech is still protesting the death of Eric Garner, but both of them know that those cases are unique and not all police officers are the same. If you think it’s okay to physically attack any or all police because of a situation that upsets you, you are a crazy person. Don’t be crazy, talk it out.
2. France, the Nice Attack
The Podcaste is disgusted by terrorism and we hope that death comes quickly to the enemies of France and Freedom. We whole heartedly encourage the mother of mohamed lahouaiej bouhlel to kill herself, being that a public and painful suicide is the only fitting way to apologize to the world for spawning and failing to raise properly such disgusting filth as her child.
3. Turkey
It sort of looks like there’s a military coup d’etat in Turkey. We are waiting for more info to make our conclusions.
Don’t like our take? Let us know what you think, we’re all in this together so let’s talk it out.
