What a week. So far I’ve recorded interviews with 20 candidates for Legislature, which is barely a drop in the bucket out of the total number but it’s a lot for me.

Tim Pool hosted Adam Johnson, also known as the Lectern Guy, on his Thursday evening show. They discussed the increasingly lawless efforts of the Biden Administration and likeminded state governments to criminalize dissent:

Finally, whatever happened to Red Lobster? Growing up as I did, I always considered it on the higher end of restaurants, and still enjoyed visiting once in a while. Apparently there is no room for casual seafood in America anymore. Sic transit gloria mundis.
