Eat, Drink and Smoke – Episode 19 – Is Fast Food Really Racist? Two Marches, But Only One Gets Coverage and the Florida Sun Grown Cigar

The President invites the Clemson football team to a feast of Big Macs and Whoppers. Is that racist? Tony Katz has the same feast with April D. Gregory and Fingers Malloy to figure it out.

The latest episode of Eat! Drink! Smoke! reviews Prichard’s Tennessee Malt Whiskey and the Florida Sun Grown toro cigar from Drew Estates.

There’s no deal on the shutdown, and the Women’s March took place. So did the March for Life, but you didn’t hear about it…unless you learned that Ben Shaprio lost two sponsors because of his speech.

And a New York restaurant has barred women from sitting at the bar, because they may be confused for hookers.

Eat! Drink! Smoke! – Snack Size! – Motley Crue Will Not Get You Out Of A Speeding Ticket and Stop Taxing The Poor!

A water tax? Really?

The new California governor wants to institute a water tax to help others get access to water. Yeah…it’s just an excuse to add yet another tax in the state. Unfortunately, California is not alone in raising taxes. Check out Indiana…and France!

Speaking of water, is it drinkable yet in Flint, MI?

And a guy in Canada gets pulled over in his car for speeding. His excuse? Motley Crue was on the radio, and he just had to drive fast. Do you think that excuse would work? April D. Gregory says she never had to blame the music to get out of a ticket.

Tony Katz hosts Eat! Drink! Smoke! The podcast is recorded live at Blend Bar Cigar in Indianapolis, IN. Tony is joined by April D. Gregory and Fingers Malloy.

Children Need Protection. Childism Is The Opposite.

A random tweet on Tony’s twitter feed exposed Tony to a new concept called Childism, wherein so-called activists advocated for the rights of children to not be treated like children.

“I’ve noticed, way too many times, where adults think children should have agency. They think children should be able to make choices that no child can make.” says Tony. “That’s not helping children. That’s not advocating for children. That’s child abuse.”

Hear Tony’s take on the cultural breakdown that has led to adults failing to protect kids.

Eat! Drink! Smoke! – Episode 18 – The Shutdown Continues, 27 Pounds of Mac and Cheese and April’s Tom Shilue Moment

The Shutdown continues, but what is it all about? Yes, it’s all about politics. But has America even answered the question of whether they want border security? Tony Katz hosts Eat! Drink! Smoke!

The Drink? Redbreast 12-year Irish Whiskey
The Smoke? La Flor Dominicana Ligero Lancero

Eat! Drink! Smoke! was recorded live at Blend Bar Cigar in Indianapolis, IN. Joining Tony are April D. Gregory and Fingers Malloy.

QUICK HIT – Ocasio-Cortez’ Green New Deal is Actually Really Dirty

Dem. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has the idea for a Green New Deal, in the mold of former President Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s New Deal, that, in her words, will bring about racial and social justice.

But, as National Review’s Jim Geraghty points out, the “deal” cuts military spending in half and might put an end to non-electric cars.

Jim speaks to Tony Katz about the details, and how dirty this “green” deal really is.

Quick Hit – Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez On Morality, Facts and How She Wants To Be Judged By You

On 60 Minutes, Dem Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez told Anderson Cooper that more important than getting the facts right on policy, is that the policy is “morally correct.”

Tony Katz explains how Cortez has opened herself up to an entirely new line of questioning. “Rep. Cortez has done a great job of avoiding criticism and making those who attack her look bad.” says Tony. “But now, she’s let all that go. She doesn’t care about facts, which is exactly the argument progressives make about President Trump. And she has asked people to question whether, morally, her Socialist policies have value; people get to question her morality. I don’t think she realizes what she’s done here.”

Conservative, but not ‘pissed off,’ Indy radio host Tony Katz enters Lafayette market

LAFAYETTE, Ind. – When Tony Katz, at the time doing odd time slots from a home base in Los Angeles, lost a 2013 tryout at Indianapolis radio station WIBC to “The Chicks on the Right,” he said he struck a deal with the management that passed him up.

“I said, ‘Listen, I think we had a good relationship,’” Katz said last week. “‘You’ve got a 9 (p.m.) to midnight slot. Let me do that from Los Angeles, and I’ll do it free.’”

Eight months of that arrangement led to a morning shift on the news and talk station.

“Like I tell people,” Katz said, “now I live in America. … I’m thrilled to call Indianapolis home. I’m thrilled to be building the empire from right here.”

281 – So A Guy Got Locked In A Burger King Bathroom, It’s Now Speaker Pelosi and Apple Gets A Bite Taken Out Of It

With Democrats taking control of the House, the Night of 1000 Subpoenas is upon us. Tony Katz discusses what will happen, and why Speaker Pelosi has her hands full with Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

And why is President Trump not aiming for the head of Senator Mitt Romney after his op-ed in the Washington Post?

280 – White Women Wish For Wokeness, LeBron the Activist has A Lot To Learn and Mitt Romney Swings Wildly At Trump

The Women’s March in Eureka, CA has been cancelled, because of too many white women. Tony Katz breaks down the progressive cannibalism that is the very concept of “wokeness.”

Sen. Elizabeth Warren is running for President. And Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s inauguration speech shows that he’s running as well. Unfortunately for him, the speech is just awful. Sen-Elect Mitt Romney takes President Trump’s character to task. Unfortunately for him, his Washington Post op-ed doesn’t do him any favors.

LeBron James may be the best basketball player in the world, and he might be the best who ever played the game. But activist LeBron James has a lot to learn.
