Ed The Sock’s FU Politics. No pundits, no jargon, no zealots - honest talk with knowledgeable, opinionated people w/sense of humour

Episodes

He's got a solid record of community involvement at the highest levels, care for the needy, a business background and graduated from Princeton & Yale. Taleeb Noormohamed is a smart guy. So why would he want to run as the new Liberal candidate against former Attorney-General and deified avatar of truth, newly independent (read: kicked out) candidate Jody Wilson-Raybould?

The local race, like many around the country, is neck-and-neck.

Steven talks to Taleeb about why he chose to run, what his values are, his feelings about black/brownface, facing real racism and the feeling among constituents that issues that matter to their community have been sidelined in favour of the JWR circus. Also, why an independent MP may as well be an empty seat.

Laura Budd is a Canadian, active in her community, and happened one afternoon to bump into her MP (at the time) Andrew Scheer. She asked him a question about whether he'd protect trans rights. His answer: he wants to 'cure' them.

He said he opposes Gay Conversion 'Therapy'. Apparently he supports Trans Conversion 'Therapy'? 

Short interview, but important look into the mind of the man who wants to be our national leader.

Liberals and Conservatives are neck-and-neck in the polls. If Liberals get most number of seats, but not a majority, they form a Minority Government.

If the Conservatives get most number of seats, but not a majority - The Liberals may still become the next government!

Facts: Trudeau is PM until he resigns or is dismissed by the Governor-General. If he says he intends to form a government with help of smaller parties, or if Governor-General determines the Conservatives, even with highest seat count, can't effectively gain confidence of the House, Trudeau would remain PM - even if the Liberals win fewer seats than the Cons.

It's all legal, proper and constitutional. We've just never experienced in our lifetimes (last time was 1919). Canadians won't understand what happened. And Scheer & his partisans will be apoplectic! If you think they fought dirty and misrepresented facts DURING the election (they did) wait'll you see the Conservatives when they are denied government! 

The rhetoric, the lies, the rage - it'll go to 11. And may rip this country apart.

The 2019 Canadian election was not only the ugliest one in memory, it was also a field guide on how NOT to run a campaign. ALL of them - Liberal, Conservative and NDP! Though one of them was, in the opinion of host Steven Kerzner, "brilliant" in how it used ugliness & disaster to make unwarranted gains.

You will hear many media discussions about the 3 main parties' campaigns. But none of them will be this blunt, honest & brutal. And damned funny.

There's no shortage of boutique hate groups for men to join - from racist Proud Boys to women-hating Incels. What's their frikkin' problem? Why are these men so full of rage, piss & vinegar? Is it crippling fear? Weren't hugged enough? Too much chess-club? Are they just a bunch of whiny asshats or is there something to their feelings of disenfranchisement?
