  • The Rev. Bill Hybels, 66, announced his immediate retirement at a meeting Tuesday with members of the Willow Creek Community Church in South Barrington. He has said since 2012 that he planned to retire in October.

  • Juxtaposition: Do we need social media regulation?
  • Don’t blame the social network (gun), blame the bad actors.
  • Welp, this is a thing. This is a group of self-proclaimed “elite female gamers” are fighting abuse and harassment online by beating toxic bullies at videogames right now as we record this podcast. The start time was at 7pm. Im sorry…how does this help anyone? If you can’t take the trash talk, why play games? Long story short, women can’t take trash talk and apparently don’t report death threats to the police. I’m putting my notes on the next page. It reminds me of the story of the father that hired videogame assassins to kill his son’s characters so it would make him stop playing and do better in school.The best part? The YouTube video has the comments section disabled. https://www.pastemagazine.com/articles/2018/04/what-bully-hunters-gets-wrong-about-harassment-in.html
  • The war on guns continues. Bank of America to sever all lending ties to companies that make “military-style” rifles. My hot take is that businesses are allowed to choose who they do business with but the optics don’t make them look good, in my opinion. http://thehill.com/policy/finance/banking-financial-institutions/382521-bank-of-america-will-stop-lending-to-assault
  • This has to be for publicity more than anything. Aside from Remington filing for bankruptcy I doubt that the The other rifle companies are banging on BoA’s door for loans. Also, they should maybe consider giving back any govt bailout money they’ve received over the years since our nations military is he number one weapons facility in the world.

Our Notes:

Easter was on April Fool’s Day and that’s way too easy of a joke to make, so I’m not going to.

Screw this kid in particular. David Hogg, the kid that’s the face of anti-gun activism from Parkland is complaining that clear backpacks infringe on his Constitutional Rights. Why are we listening to kids about this stuff?

Stormy Daniels and Donald trump. Here’s the thing: I’m being told as a Christian I should be offended. And some Christians don’t care for the wrong reasons. Of course he had affairs. Do I care about his business. Not at all.

WTF ZUCK?
Of course are information was being used for this stuff.  IDK if our names are attached to our data, if there were profiles or what. But NONE of this is a shock. Previous candidates and at least one President DID THE SAME THING.

Comedian Hannibal Buress has his mic cut after making offensive jokes at a Catholic University. His joke was about child molestation and presumably the Catholics:

Student is suspended for not participating in the student walkouts over the gun debate. The story is that instead of wanting to pick a side and remain neutral, he stayed in the classroom instead of going to either the walkout or the alternative study hall. He was suspended because he refused and the school couldn’t leave him unsupervised.

Much better than the last one but I still can’t stand Michael Sweets voice.

Trump’s coming for our Vidya Gaymes (probably/probably not). I know, I know, it’s a Breitbart article, but I’ve read through it and it’s a really good article that pretty much echoes most of the things that I’ve been hearing for the past 10 years about all of this stuff. I’ll put my notes to the article on the page below to keep this page orderly: http://www.breitbart.com/tech/2018/03/09/trump-plays-compilation-of-violent-video-games-during-meeting-with-entertainment-executives/?utm_source=facebook&utm_medium=social

Don’t Be Sexist On International Women’s Day

Hosted by Ashley, Britton, and Nick.
Recorded on 3/8/2018

  • It’s woman’s day! So for the first time in CVC history, Britton does not open the show.
  • Its a slow news week. Either that or we just stopped caring.
  • We may have caused the destruction of Third Day
  • Bill Graham: The prophets strike!

Can Matthew 20 tell us anything about unions? Or am I just a republican instigator. This coming on the news of multiple strikes going on now.

Matthew chapter 20 when Jesus tells the story of the workers in his vineyard being paid the same no matter what time they started. Is this Jesus’s response to communism? –

“But he answered one of them, ‘I am not being unfair to you, friend. Didn’t you agree to work for a denarius? Take your pay and go. I want to give the one who was hired last the same as I gave you. Don’t I have the right to do what I want with my own money? Or are you envious because I am generous?’ “So the last will be first, and the first will be last.””
‭‭Matthew‬ ‭20:13-16‬ ‭NIV‬‬
http://bible.us/111/mat.20.13-16.niv

Hey look no one got kill or maimed at the protests… and there were no weird body part hats. Although there were some weird signs……

Facebook asked users if it was ok for Men to receive sexual photos of children. This brings up a topic of a terrible trend in Silicon Valley where the three big “town square” websites of Google, Twitter, and Facebook have all had pedophilia scandals. Google had its Elsagate scandal with YouTube kids, Twitter has/had accounts on it that openly advocate for child porn (some of which I’ve had to flag in the past), and now this crap. “There are a wide range of topics and behaviors that appear on Facebook,” one question began. “In thinking about an ideal world where you could set Facebook’s policies, how would you handle the following: a private message in which an adult man asks a 14-year-old girl for sexual pictures.”

Welcome to the Gun Show!

 

  • Vans Warped Tour will be ending next year: http://vanswarpedtour.com/2017/finaltour/
  • Nick Defends himself from last week’s shenanigans
  • Papa John no longer official sponsor of the NFL. Now we’re hungry for Pizza Hut.
  • CNN publishes more fake news. This time on guns. https://twitter.com/LeahRBoss/status/968686117871587330
    • Nick’s Notes
    • What the heck is fully semi-automatic?
    • Headline reads: “Trump appears to be backing away from 21 year age limit for assault weapon purchases.” Please, define for everyone what an assault weapon is? Just as a point of contention with Trump here: What would a 21 year age limit even stop? Because in our state, a parent could just buy it and then hand it down to someone younger.
    • This guy has clearly not shot a rifle before. That thing is kicking him like a mule because it’s not up to his shoulder.
    • “This is what an AR-15 sounds like.” No, this is what a .223 sounds like. It sounds like a gunshot. It’s no scarier than any other gunshot. If it was shot out of another gun that shot .223, it would sound nearly identical.
    • This little fairy in the video leans away from the gun as he shoots it as if he’s terrified it’ll take on a life of it’s own and shoot back at him.
    • “Now those are single shots. If I wanted to fire this on full-semi-automatic all I do is keep firing.” No kidding, numbnuts. You keep firing it the same way you just did. He’s inventing words.
    • “Now I won’t probably hit the target.” Why not? Because you’re trash? What point is he proving? I thought this was the god-tier gun that could kill any person regardless of where it was aimed and at any distance?
    • “It’s designed to inflict maximum damage.” What? .223 isn’t going to inflict maximum damage. It’s only going to inflict the maximum damage of a .223 round. It won’t do as much damage as, say, a .50 cal round.
    • “In my personal opinion, you have to receive a whole lot of training to use this weapon. And this weapon, in the wrong hands, can be more dangerous than most weapons because of its capability to do a lot of damage in a short period of time, and be irreversible.” He says this right after he let a poor excuse of a man shoot the gun with no training at all. His personal opinion isn’t worth a crap because he literally made up words to describe the process of firing the gun. Why does this weapon do more damage than a .308 or the 7.62×39 which is what most AK platforms use? .308 is a very common hunting round. Also, what gunshot isn’t irreversible?
  • Does the AR platform inspire crazy people more than other rifles? Or do crazy people use this weapon above others because its copy cats.
  • Everyone is losing their stuff on NRA. Companies are “pulling support” but what I want to know is what the hell the NRA has to do with an airline. I already don’t like their lobbying because i just don’t like lobbyist. But what else are they in?
  • Trump said that the government should take your guns first and then give due process of law. “ I think they should have taken them away anyway, whether they had the right or not.” In regards to the Florida shooter. No. Not at all. https://www.dailywire.com/news/27706/betrayal-trump-says-government-should-take-guns-ben-shapiro#
  • Wanna get weird? It’s the AR-15 episode apparently. “Worshippers clutching AR-15 rifles hold commitment ceremony” http://www.mcall.com/news/breaking/mc-nws-pennsylvania-church-blessing-ar-15-rifles-20180228-story.html

Anyone watch the Super Bowl? Whatcha think of it and the half-time show?
It was the lowest rated Super Bowl in the last 8 years. However, it still drew in large numbers of people because it’s the Super Bowl.
