American Consequences Editor-in-Chief and best-selling author P.J. O’Rourke joins Trish in this episode and they dive into a variety of topics, including his updated blockbuster book Eat the Rich that he’s giving away for free at freepjbook.com.

P.J. talks with Trish about the current resident of 1600 Pennsylvania Ave, the state of small businesses, masks, shutdowns, and inflated prices of goods and services. P.J. isn’t President Biden’s biggest fan and worries that the administration will impose more lockdowns should health concerns continue.

Human nature shows us that people in power like to exercise that power, says P.J., and while politicians are attempting to uphold the health and safety of our country (no easy feat), they’re still human and delight in shutdowns… perpetuating said power.

With COVID-19 variants on the rise, small businesses can’t withstand another shutdown, and the country can’t continue to print money and prop them up… It’s a recipe on how to tear this country apart, even more so than it already is. President Biden needs to show leadership that unifies.

Inflation, a pandemic, human nature, and general discourse has us all on the edge of our proverbial seats.
