Show Notes - 08/01/2010

On the big show tonight we covered a myriad of topics including:

Remember the 21 year old Philadelphia Phillies fan who intentionally vomited on another fan and his two children at Citizen's Bank Park? Well, PUKIE-MON, better known as Matthew Clemmens, has been sentenced to 30-90 days in prison + 50 hours of community service + 2 years probation. In fact, his 50 hours of community service have to be cleaning urinals at the ballpark. I say justice was served. However, he should have been required to work every home game of the Eagles at the Linc walking the concourses dressed head to toe in Dallas Cowboys garb screaming that he is a devout Cowboys fan.

Also out of Philadelphia, 27 year veteran of the police department Kenneth Crockett was arrested and charged for his involvement in the theft of $825 from a Northeast Philadelphia Tavern. Really? You stole $825? Even more importantly than that is the fact that this man..this POLICE OFFICER swore testimony to uphold the law and to serve and protect. So he did the exact opposite of this. Oh, wait..perhaps that particular Tuesday was "Opposites Day" at the Philly PD. You never know. You're FIRED, Jackass! If you cannot serve your oath, get OUT!

Up on the soapbox, Joel argued that there is far too many unconcerned people who are still choosing to operate motor vehicles under the influence of alcohol, drugs or using cell phones. The problem is that any and all of these can seriously and do seriously inhibit your ability to properly function at the wheel and you do not give a damn that you may kill yourself or worse..someone else. You can kill yourself all you want if you have that much of an issue with this beautiful thing called LIFE. In the meantime, our families and friends are out there on the roads and if you cannot control your urge, then do us a favor and GET THE HELL OFF THE ROAD!

We did a new segment called DEAR VIDA where a listener email was read and she wished advice from Vida. The letter will not be reprinted here so you have to listen to the show to hear the letter and Vida's (and Joel's) advice that was given. Letters for DEAR VIDA should be emailed to Studio @ BehindTheMike.info.
Finally, The Obama administration is seeking to make it easier for the FBI to compel ISP companies to turn over records of an individual's Internet activity without a court order if agents deem the information relevant to a terrorism or intelligence investigation. Did you get that? Like the Patriot Act, here is another display of an UNCONSTITUTIONAL law being created to suit the government's needs to take control over us. This is another reason that we have to go out on November 2, 2010 and TAKE THE TRASH OUT! We have to stop this band of miscreants operating under the guise of the US Government from taking over every single solitary aspect of our lives. Who is with us?
