Marble Halls & Silver Screens w/Sarah Lee Ep. 7: The 'Impeachment, American Dreamer, and Hard Street Drugs' Edition

Homelessness and open drug use are rampant in the Golden State.

Morning, gang. Recorded a good show last night that I hope tells you all you’d ever want to know about what’s going on with this “impeachment inquiry” the Democrats have come up with to make it look like they’re serious on impeachment. For the record, I’m not sure they are because they don’t seem to have anything impeachment-worthy, including these new allegations about Trump and Ukraine. If the transcript is released to Congress today, we should know more about the alleged inappropriateness of the phone call between the two world leaders. I have a feeling it’s not going to go the Democrats’ way…

I took the opportunity to review Jim Gaffigan’s newest film, the gritty and uncomfortable “American Dreamer” (trailer below). Ooof…it’s a tough watch, but probably an important one if you’ve ever been sitting at the bottom of your life, looking up, and wondering what you’re capable of to get yourself out of the hole. I get into all that in the show.

Finally, there’s a lot in last night’s show about Twitter user and English rapper Zuby’s visit to the United States. If you’re unfamiliar with the guy, he’s an English musician who also opines quite a bit on policy (usually American) from a very English libertarian perspective.

He’s been tweeting his thoughts on the cities he’s been visiting and let’s just say his questions about what exactly is going on in California (San Francisco specifically) have been eye opening. I try to answer some of his questions.
