  1. Defending Obama's honor like that is so fucking cringe. It's beyond time to start judging him and his administrations like any other president. If everyone from both parties scrutinized presidents and poltiicans half as much as Trump was for example we might actually be in better shape.

  2. Sacks glad you are finally jumping on board with the vaccine and fear the government is trying to put in peoples mind – you rubbed the wrong way several months ago when you mention on a POD, criticizing people who didn't get vaccinated, when no evidence suggested it. This WORLD has become a joke – When you make a Vaccine Politcal (That shows it doesn't protect the vacinated) , you will have backlash

  3. Is it me or is Chamath now becoming like sacks? The former is basically making political calls like sacks now. Plus they’re both wearing luxury sweaters now

  4. What you are saying is all well and good but we still need to fix our infrastructure. Where is the money coming from? Once you stop kicking the can down the road how do you right the ship???

  5. Can't believe I'm saying this, but I'm with JCal on the politician grift. These people are striving to gain office because they know there is a MASSIVE pay day afterwards. Further incentivizing terrible "leadership" while in office, because the pay day comes after.

  6. 40:27 If teachers should be paid more, then you need to have a higher standard of who a teacher is but also what they are teaching. If you have a teacher who can't even balance their own checkbook or espousing that everyone is a victim, should they really be a teacher? There needs to be a much higher qualifying standard. Higher qualifier means higher quality which leads to higher pay. I know a ton of amazing teachers that are literally 10x teachers, and then some how I do not know how they got there.

  7. another great episode!!! The mRNA discussion and what May come ahead is very interesting…please add to the agenda for ongoing update thanks

  8. Such pragmatic yet detailed observations and opinions about the economic, socio-cultural and political loopholes and issues that are not discussed by the mainstream media is what the citizens, social groups and politicians need to participate in if we really were to grow as a society. Kudos to the besties!

  9. “"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat." – Theodore Roosevelt
