***Today’s Topics***


- The FCC is seriously contemplating putting the word "Redskins" on the list of words that can not be said and that could warrant a fine.

- Rob Astorino has a new AD out that is a rip off off the Daisy Nuclear AD. It makes no sense in this context and Astorino claims the correlation is that Cuomo has a cloud of corruption above him.

- We discuss issues with this AD and why, in Bill's words, it's stupid.


- There is a second person confirmed in the United States with Ebola. The way things have been going, we have to wonder if the CDC really has control over the prevention of it spreading.

The latest conspiracy theory is that ISIS is intentionally infecting people with Ebola and sending them to America.


- Aretha Franklin is 72-years-old and she has a new album coming out and Bill will playing something coming up later.

- Two teachers were having sex with a 16-year-old boy. The threesome occurred and it was found out by the fact the kid was bragging.

- Is there a double-standard? If it was two men with a 16-year-old girl, they'd be crucified. Now some people are saying, "Why would he brag? He had a good thing going!"

- Two attractive female teachers can get anyone they want probably and they carried this threesome affair for one year.
