Boss Man Troi “Star” Torain acknowledges Atatiana Jefferson’s father Mr. Marquis Jefferson for his stance on postponing the funeral of his daughter. He then goes to the other topic of what it means to be a freedom fighter, in particular, a black one. Star talks about his Skype session with his girlfriend in California. Boss Chick Ronnie joins the show with her spirited voice. The two discuss the bizarre Cuba Gooding Jr. video that has resurfaced on the internet. Mr. Torain said that he looked like he was allegedly on “some good s––.” Ronnie says that to raise $250,000 is questionable. Star says that these family members want to purchase “C-Classes and take trips down to the Canary Islands”...allegedly.
Dr. Yaron Brook brings his expertise in parsing through newspapers to his show. He claims that the best paper, The Wall Street Journal, still has errors, flubs, and outright “nonsense.” He disagrees with economists like Thomas Sowell who contends that economics is about “scarcity” but still holds him in esteem. Dr. Brook challenges the scarcity notion. He says that economics is about production and trade. He finds that we live in abundance. He offers the example of how you can take “gunky stuff” like oil and make it into something that can be made into a human value to be consumed. Epistemology (respect for facts, reality, and the mind) and ethics (defining a proper code of morality) ought to drive economics to the good doctor.
What Dr. Brook gets right (amongst a whole host of other topics) is economics. It’s his strong suit. He swings open the door to the show by redressing a commenter about the fallacy of how the standard of living has gone down in recent decades. He holds that an individual can do “fantastically well” today as opposed to the 1950s. Dr. Brook admonishes a YouTube commenter for not displaying sufficient grammar and spelling skills. He asks how someone determines their wages in the marketplace of worth. The good doctor concedes that while we’re in a good place across the world, things can be much better.
Steady knocks of the ping pong ball on the table tennis table nearly lulled Lance Corporals Ellis Firth and Justison Haley into a stupor. Rather than a vigorous game of back and forth, the match seemed listless, dull. But the conversation remained energetic.
Mr. Torain flies right into the topic of whether Sammy “The Bull” Gravano is a model citizen or a SOB. He includes the other topic concerning the time it takes for a loving relationship to turn sour. Lenard McKelvey is “big mad” at the Hater. What this side topic reveals is that Star is aware of the media landscape and conveys a message that brings to light the foul-ups in the industry. Star says that he will rock solo if Ronnie never checks into the show. Mr. Torain wonders if his viewers and listeners care about The Bull opening up on some shady dealings from Cosa Nostra. Star says that he “gave it up sweet.” He takes a call to get input from an audience member.
It’s an exclusive tonight on a Wednesday for the original Objective Hater. Mr. Torain talks first about a Walmart health center which opened up in Georgia. Next, he flips to the other topic about the word being used by actress Gina Rodriguez. Again, the show incorporates three stories with the Cuba Gooding Jr. mess.
