On this episode of The Q, Justin Deming re-appears to bring his liberal views to the front and center of current events....yet everyone get cut off!Mike Barsel's the general manager of 1420 WINI calls into the Q to explain to Mark that he would like to bring him to his knees in a race for the (clears throat) "Patriot Cup". Mike challenges Mark to come down to DuQuoin, IL for a race to find out who is the better "Merican" in what Mike (and many midwestern's) calls GODS COUNTRY. Well Mark accepts the challenge and puts it out there that he will be in Duquoin, IL on DEC. 17th (2013) for the rollerskating race, and then leaves Mike and the good conservatives of Middle America with some choice words.
Then its on like Donkey Kong....The guys discuss this issue with drug testing for Welfare recipients. Where as Mark is moderate and doesn't mind, Justin is hardcore against it. Mark puts the words to Justin and the discussion becomes quite enthralling. But that is just the start as Mark brings up Jingoism and Imperialism and how today's conservatives tend to ring the bell for those ideals without fully understanding the value of what they are saying and how they will accomplish that.
Finally its time for a dose of reality and the guys get into the new GAME ON/GAME OFF for the week. Will Producer Bobby come through like recent with a flub on the Game Off, or will he change his ways and bring around an amazing example for a Game Off. Take a listen and find out. Plus Mark and Justin have some seriously interesting choices for this weeks game. All this and you get some extra in the OVERTIME right after the end of the show.
Mark and Justin are starting this weeks show off with the breakdown of the new budget plan proposed by the POTUS. Including raising the minimum wage to $9. All sound good and the guys discuss why Obama is so willing to work across the aisle since the way he was treated in the 2012 election by the vitriolic TEA PARTY and CONSERVATIVE members of Capitol Hill. This leads to discussion on the generational gap between the people that are hurting and the ones that have money. This leads to a letter from a listener about the whole "It takes a village mentality" that seems to be missing in 2013.
Then the discussion switches to new things that Mark Learned in the past week regarding everything from Mt. Everest to Mr. Rogers. And the two touch on the fact that Jeremy's challenge from Travis Cook was accepted.
Finally the show is rounded out by a discussion of Narcissism and Racism. The borderline vernacular people use to skirt their racist tendencies and where the line between a word that was once racist becomes desensitized to the population and becomes part of the common everyday speech.
Its time for THE Q....Taking talk radio and turning it up to 11!
