This Week In Jackassery, Ep. 6

This Week In Jackassery, Ep. 6

Shane BarnhillFriday,17 April 2015

In the sixth episode of This Week In Jackassery, Adrienne Boettinger and I discuss America’s eroding trust in law enforcement, Intuit’s lobbying to keep tax filing as difficult as possible, California’s drought, presidential declarations, and proof that everything in the world doesn’t suck. We also play a brand new game called “Rad or Bad.”

You can listen to the full episode of This Week In Jackassery above, but here are 4 quick takeaways from the show:

1. A political solution is required to end California’s drought problems. Yes, that means we’re all fucked.

2. Now that Hillary Clinton, Ted Cruz and Rand Paul have formally announced that they’re running for president, we’re ready to snooze through the rest of early run up to the 2016 election.

3. Russia’s anti-meme policy = Rad. The Apple Watch = Bad. Wait, what?

4. Despite all the things that are driving us to drink this week, there is some good in the world. In fact, we found two things in the entire world that don’t suck this week, including a CEO who is taking a seven-figure pay cut to improve his employees’ standard of living. Fire up This Week In Jackassery now, and then hit up TSD, Adrienne and me on Twitter with your comments.
