Saturday Night Video - The "Stand Up Economist" Explains American Politics and the National Debt
If you are not familiar with his work, The Stand Up Economist is Yorum Bauman, an actual PhD Economist who decided a few years ago to try stand up comedy as a side gig. In the video below, he does a brilliantly funny bit on American politics and the real reason why the national debt is out of control.
Choice bit: "If you don't know the difference between a communist and a fascist, you're probably a swing voter."
Bonus video: I'm not sure where this is, but someone just recorded out their windshield as they were driving around in a very dilapidated neighborhood. There is no commentary. The images very powerfully speak for themselves.
