Pro-Truth Pledge

Pro-Truth Pledge

The Wayward Willis podcast has taken the Pro-Truth Pledge and committed itself to providing only factual, verifiable information and, wherever necessary, providing corrections or retractions in a timely manner.  Although this podcast deals in opinion and is intended to entertain and amuse, certain segments of the show present perspectives on politics and social issues that require careful and thoughtful examination and presentation of facts.  As hosts of this podcast we’re committed to stopping the spread of misinformation.

In an age where opening a browser window or picking up your phone may result in an overwhelming flood of news and information from an overwhelming number of sources we feel it’s particularly important that we hold the sources of this news and information accountable.  There is a tangible benefit to society when public voices deal in facts and there are notable consequences when they don’t.

We feel that the Pro-Truth Pledge is an appropriate movement with which this show should be associated and we’re helping to put the word out to other public figures as well.

Respect Revisited: Drumpf

Make Donald Drumpf Again

Back in 2011 I wrote a blog post titled “Respect For Respect’s Sake” detailing the reasons why a request for respect without good reason is invalid and not worthy of consideration.  Over the weekend I was told I needed to stop calling Donald J. by his original family name, Drumpf, because he obviously changed it and I should show him some respect.  This imperative was given to me by a Drumpf voter in my immediate family and I said I would neither do it on the grounds of a legal name change nor on the grounds of showing respect.  I’d like to detail my reasons, as though any reasonable person would need help figuring it out.

Drumpf Middle Finger
Fuck you, America! I’m president and you’re not!

First let me outline the reasons I don’t respect Donald J. Drumpf:

  1. He behaves like a spoiled child
  2. He revels in his ignorance of how the world works
  3. He uses the words, “Trust Me”
  4. He continues to demean women
  5. He never tells the truth

Now, to my main points regarding respect:

Drumpf Needs a Hug

Joshua Feuerstein is a “Christian” pastor who has completely lost his mind over Donald Drumpf and has been reveling in the new era where bigots and morons are emboldened to speak what’s on their tiny little minds.  In fact, I honestly don’t think you can call him a Christian anymore; he’s something more like a Drumpfian™.  This has clearly become his religion.  None of his posts to date have shown this to me more clearly than a recent picture he put up with Jesus hugging a dejected-looking Donald Drumpf in the Oval Office:

Feuerstein's Drumpf Hug
All the cluelessness of a Christian encapsulated in a single image.

Wrestling With Politics

Greg Gianforte

On May 24, 2017 in a high-stakes Montana Congressional election, Greg Gianforte (R) “bodyslammed” Guardian reporter Ben Jacobs and broke his glasses. If you’re asking yourself what Jacobs could have done that was deserving of physical violence, the answer is this: he asked Gianforte questions.  Gianforte was apparently fed up with reporters dogging him about the American Health Care Act (AHCA) and its dismal Congressional Budget Office (CBO) score.  Jacobs’ was unfortunate enough to be the question that sent Gianforte over the edge.  Fox News reporter Alicia Acuna (yes, Fox News!) witnessed the occurrence and documented it the following day here.  Gianforte won the election at the same time as charges were being brought against him for assault.
