Ahhh October. That Fall air is in and temps start to drop. But this year it's even better because we have SCOTUS hearings and Presidential Alerts and all kinds of Fun. So Producer Bobby and Gary Weed join for this episode of the Q to discuss all of it.
First up, Mark and the Family cruised over to Six Flags for their first weekend of Fright Fest. The temps were great and Six Flags definitely has upped their game regarding this years Fright Fest. 5 Amazing haunted houses for the family to go through and even if you don't grab the Haunted house pass (extra cost), they still have scare areas throughout the park for the kids (little and big) to enjoy. Gary and Bobby also chime in with their experiences plus some basic theme park discussion!
Onto the world of politics, where Brett Kavanaugh is up against it on the SCOTUS nomination. He was grilled for hoursalong with Christine Blasey Ford regarding the sexual assault allegations brought against him. How is this boding for the judge? Well not as well as he thought it would, but that doesn't mean he's guilty. He's just really emotional while discussing these things.
Then Mark breaks down how you know that Conservative media just fills their bases heads with BS based on the latest findings in the Charlottesville, Virginia protests from almost 2 years ago. The FBI arrested 4 White Nationalist/KKK members in association with creating Mayhem and many other charges. But how does that prove Conservative Media is biased and mostly wrong all the time...Well listen to Mark break down his logic and explain. Also Mark discusses the Presidential Text Alert and the guys give Trump some much deserved credit.
Finally, Producer Bobby explains that he kinda agrees with Trump moves now and this brings us to how the SCOTUS nomination is important and how it'll shape the future. So we decided to bring up the Supreme Court's most recent decisions over th epast couple years and discuss here Bobby falls with the court. Does he lean conservative or does he stay moderate/liberal. Listen in and figure out what you agree with the court on and what you don't.
People talking into a microphone having a good time. That's what the Q likes to strive for. Well we have a doozy of a show for you. Anthony Rogers brings his unique style of comedy to the show with Mark and Jonathan May.
First up, Jonathan is having a hell of a time on Social Media because he feels Bill Cosby got what he deserved. But that doesn't stop people from being contrarians. Jonathan is getting lit up on Facebook so Anthony decides to add his two cents to the issue and bestows a very touchy position to the newly guilty comedy legend.
Next is the Brett Kavanaugh hearings and issue. Seems that Ford will testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee. She will explain he allegations of sexual assault by Kavanaugh to the Senators and they will either vote to confirm him or they will waive him. The guys throw around their thoughts on how this should fall out.
Finally a shooting in Texas between neighbors caught the attention of Mark and they discuss if it was a legit stand your ground argument or not. Was the guy with the gun in the right, or was it the victim in the orange shirt that was irate and escalated himself until he made a move that cost him his life.
All this and much much more on this episode of the Q!
Gary Weed and Comedian Jonathan May join the show to discuss the historical shift in the Supreme Court of the US after Donald Trump nominates Brett Kavanaugh as the newest "member of the team".
Mark has been fielding tons and tons of incorrect fake conservative outrage because of the SCOTUS nomination. But Mark is here to quell the fears and let everyone know....Kavanaugh is somewhat centrist like Garland and willing to vote liberal if necessary on some topics. This will do nothing to dissuade people from jumping down his throat, but Mark is attempting.
Also, Mark has been thinking of bringing a phrase back and wanted to get the opinions of his guests regarding that phrase. Find out what phrase and if he get's the go ahead or this is a no go. Plus 12 kids got trapped in a Thai mine a few weeks back and they got released. The guys discuss this heroic moment.

He also presides over 4000 people as well as thousands of other retired Union employees. Glenn discusses his career in the Union and with the auto industry, as well as his thoughts on the state of the union today.
This leads to a discussion about hobbies and things in peoples lives, when Mark, whose been searching for a rant he had, hears that Glenn is into crossfit which sends Mark off on a diatribe about crossfitters and their lifestyle and all of it (nothing personal to Glenn of course).
Eventually the original rant Mark had about Liberals helping each other out comes to the surface. Mark reached out to form some alliances and the response he heard was a telling sign of where the mindset of hardcore liberals and democrats are at. Take a listen and find out the results...
Finally Glenn hits the famous Q show Hot Seat to answer some questions and open up about himself a little more.
Enjoy all this and so much more on the new Q!
Producer Bobby makes his return to catch up and discuss all that is right and wrong with the world. Mark is immediately set to making the record straight regarding some things he said in the previous show because many angry conservatives (its always just angry conservatives) were mad he didn't detail the SCOTUS situation regarding the 2000 election out enough for their liking. Not that what he said was incorrect, it just seemed incorrect without the extra detailing...yet Mark is an honorable person so he brings it to the table to discuss and apologize.

Antonin Scalia has passed away and the candidates and the conservatives are just besides themselves with fury and anger over Obama possibly appointing a successor.
Mark is joined on the jaunt to discuss this issue with none other than former Q co-host and visitor Justin Deming! Justin also has a couple choice words for the conservatives of america that have decided to become a obstacle for the Leader of the Free World. Mark and Justin discuss the death, the conspiracies and finally the layout of what this means. Remember the 2000 Election and the need for the Supreme Court to step in and decide that Bush would be the president? Well that couldn't happen this year and the Republican Senate leaders have gone out of their way to explain that they will not allow Barack Obama to do the job he was elected for and pick a new replacement for Scalia.
This is a politics heavy episode as we are starting to see the primaries shake out and now with the successor needing to be chosen, this episode of the Q is very important for you to listen to.
