This week: the Patient Right-To-Die act, my psychotic neighbor assaults someone with a bottle (and I brought in the audio of it), and I'm joined by satirist, Rucka Rucka Ali who moderates the debate.
In short, the Patient Right-To-Die act is a law that lets people who are terminally ill and suffering to end their lives legally (or for doctors to prescribe them lethal, pain-free medication). The law passed, but has 15 stipulations and requirements before people can exercise this right (legally anyway). I give a hearty argument for both sides of the debate, and suggest the law should be extended to people suffering from non-stop Game of Thrones tweets. But all joking aside, if you or someone you know is having suicidal ideation, please call 1-800-273-8255.
And the saga with my neighbor continues... my psychotic neighbor who, in the past has sprayed water into my open car window, punched me in the chest and chased an Amazon delivery girl around the block has, now sunk to a new low: she assaulted someone with a bottle. It's easy to dismiss her as simply being "crazy," but there's method to her madness because when I've called the police on her in the past, she immediately pretends to be normal as soon as the cops arrive, but the second they leave or even turn their back to her, she goes right back to being a bitch. I suspect her shitty behavior has more to do with alcohol than dementia.
Also Rucka gives us a sneak-preview of his new song, "Everything is Racist." Very funny and apropos song for the climate we live in today. Rucka moderates the debate and has his own buzzer to use when he wants to call me out. Spoiler: there's no need to use the buzzer ever, but he finds a way. VOICEMAIL NUMBER: 1-562-58-I-RULE (1-562-584-7853).
