In this episode, Brett and Rob have a third discussion of questions they have been asked in the past by people who are curious about libertarianism. They get liquored up and try to answer the following:

  • Can I Be a libertarian and Support Public Schooling?
  • Can I Be a libertarian and Work for the Government?
  • Can I Be a libertarian and Be Conservative?
  • Can I Be a libertarian and Support Gun Control?

Due to the whisky being consumed, Rob goes on two mini rants and Brett promises a topic for a future episode. Have a drink and listen to the Dynamically Drunken Duo answer these questions.

In their first (real) purposeful bonus episodelet, Brett and Rob discuss and respond to the recent terror attacks in Europe. They explain how both the left and right want to violate the NAP and bring a whole host of the same type of economic migrants that are causing trouble in Europe to the United States. They have their own reasons for doing such, and the guys discuss these reasons. Nothing good can come out of it.

It's been a while since Brett and Rob dusted off the ol' Two Cows joke, so here's another discussion using the joke. In this alcohol-fueled episode, the Dynamically Drunken Duo revisit it, but they focus on the mythical wonderfulness of Pure Democracy. Listen as Brett and Rob smack around Pure Democracy and unmask it for what it truly is (hint: it is very close to another form of governance that rhymes with "Bocialism").

In this Bonus Episodelet, trimmed for content from Episode 014 - Liberty Definitions, Brett and Rob got sidetracked when talking about negative vs. positive rights. Rob reads from FDR's Second Bill of Rights, a progressive statist dream he launched in 1944, that has had yet another rebirth in the past couple of years. Brett and Rob talk about how terrible these "rights" are and how what was once new is new again. It's a good thing that the Auchentoshan is flowing...

Sorry for the delay in uploading this episode, but Brett and Rob, as they explained in Episode 016 - Why We're Different, are working stiffs, and work and life got in the way of getting this episode out on schedule. Rob is working to get the other two recorded episodes edited and ready for release, as well as a few more bonus episodelets.

In this alcohol-fueled episode, Brett and Rob, in the spirit of Episode 007 - Common Objections from the Left, are back and slaying common objections from the Right. The Dynamically Drunken Duo tackle:

1. Libertarians are too liberal

2. Libertarians will allow drugs to flow through the streets

3. You can't just let people do what they want

4. Libertarians are isolationists

7. Libertarians don't believe in a strong national defense

8. Libertarians don't support the troops

9. Libertarians wouldn't waterboard a terrorist to keep Americans from dying

10. What about patents and copyrights?

You may have noticed that #5 and #6 are missing from this list. They were trimmed in order to keep the length of the episode to a reasonable amount of time. They will appear in a future bonus episodelet.

If you are wondering if the audio quality may sound "off", and/or if you happen to hear scraping sounds, you are correct in your assumption. The guys were unable to record in their usual location and had to record in Brett's kitchen. The scraping sounds you may hear are Brett's dog on his hardwood floors. The more you drink while listening, the less of those sounds you will hear...

Relax, have a drink with us, and see that the Right is just as loony as the Left.
