What? A release on a Monday? Memorial Day, even? Yes. In a first, the guys recorded so much material for this episode that it could be split into two full episodes. The second half is slated for release later this week. Hopefully it sounds OK as Rob has been rage-editing whilst crying in his beer over the Champions League Final (he doesn't want to talk about it...).
In this episode of Half-Hour Liberty Hour, the Dynamically Drunken Duo tackle who they believe is the worst leader in American history (and it may surprise you). Brett and Rob spend this episode busting a lot of myths concerning the man's actions leading up to his presidency and the time period just prior to and during his first year in office? Who is it? You'll have to listen to find out.

Two bonus episodelets on the same day? Say it ain't so...
This bonus episodelet was a segment cut for time from Episode 028 - Oregon, Have You Lost Your Mind? Brett and Rob discuss Oregon's Senate Joint Memorial 201, which is a resolution begging the General Government to ban firearms based upon scary-looking components, ban bump stocks, ban "ghost guns", expand the definition of firearms to include non-firearms, and ban our universal right to defend ourselves in the manner we choose.
Brett and Rob completely destroy the Memorial using logic, which is in short supply in the Oregon legislature. The really funny thing is, the state of Oregon could choose to ban all of these things within the state, but once again they pass the buck because they know that if they enacted these measures, it would cause 2/3 of the state to secede. Secession is a beautiful thing...
A twofer today. These segments were cut for time from Episode 027 - Common Objections From The Christian Right. Brett and Rob discuss how legislating morality can come back to bite you in the end, and how Rob taught his students how to think about making ethical decisions, as well as a discussion of Christians in the military.
It's a good thing The Sexton was flowing...
In this episode of refuting stupidity, Brett and Rob lay into the stupidity of the "young adult-led" gun control/confiscation movement since the Parkland shooting. The Dynamically Drunken Duo tear into the movement and the money behind it; Rob gets diarrhea of the mouth when comparing these children to the suffragette movement of the 1910s; Brett calls out David Hogg by name; Morpheus and Neo make an appearance; and the guys drink a lot while pointing out the stupidity of these children and the movement.
In this alcohol-fueled episode, the Dynamically Drunken duo step away from their beloved whisky and consume brandy, a high-fallutin' drink for this high-fallutin' topic. What is that topic? Capitalism. Brett and Rob explain true free market capitalism and defend it from common complaints. They admit that there are some downsides to it (those will be released in Bonus Episodelet 017), but defend it as the best economic system that we have yet discovered.
Sit back, relax, have a drink if you can, and listen to a very simple explanation and defense of capitalism.
