In this Bonus Episodelet, cut for content from Episode 022 - Dammit, Oregon, Knock It Off!, Brett tells his inside story about former governor John Kitzhaber and $700,000,000. Rob gives his theory as to why he thinks that Oregon keeps electing people like Kitzhaber (and Kate Brown). It's a good thing that the Crater Lake Rye is flowing...

The Dynamically Drunken Duo announce a new series of bonus episodelets titled, "Refuting Stupidity", with this audio release. What is Refuting Stupidity? Have a listen and find out.

In this episode, the Dynamically Drunken Duo lay aside the topic they were originally going to record (an Oxford-style debate on socialism in professional sports) in favor of addressing gun hysteria in the wake of the Florida high school shooting. Brett tosses aside many gun myths with well-researched facts, and Rob debunks politicians' and the media's definition of an assault weapon with the true meaning of the term.

Sit back, relax, have a drink if you can, and listen to Brett and Rob slay some gun myth dragons.

Ensure that you listen all the way to the end for an Easter Egg from the guys...

Rob apologizes for his audio. He was experimenting with reflective sound reduction via moving blankets whilst recording and he got his microphone too near the blankets. That's why he sounds like he's trapped in a box. He'll ensure that it is better next time or Brett will make him kiss a picture of Abraham Lincoln. Blech!

Holy Cow! The Dynamically Drunken Duo have stumbled into their 25th episode. Who knew that they had enough brain cells left to do so? They sure didn't think they did.

In honor of their 25th episode, Brett and Rob celebrate by drinking a whole bunch of whisky and discuss an episode in American history that is wrongly taught today: The Whisky Rebellion of 1794. They discuss how the rebellion was actually a wide-spread success for the nullification of unconstitutional laws, and how once the general government unconstitutionally steals power from the hands of the people, it sets a precedent in which it never wants to give up that power. The guys also discuss how important (and legal) it is to nullify laws today and ways it can be accomplished by YOU.

Sit back, relax, have a drink if you can, and listen to Brett and Rob extol the power of the people.
