GLENN: So what's opening up -- oh, by the way, I saw last night father daughter movie night last night, and we saw a dog's purpose. Did you guys see that? Oh, my gosh is that --

JEFFY: There's all kinds of dog movies.

GLENN: Oh, my gosh. It's so good.

PAT: What?

JEFFY: There's a bunch of dog movies that came out this past couple of years. I've seen a bunch of them.

GLENN: Yeah, this one is the one with Kevin Costner? Oh, no, not Kevin Costner.

JEFFY: No, I haven't seen that.

PAT: You're pulling our legs.

GLENN: No, I'm not. I'm not.

PAT: A dog's purpose is good?

GLENN: No, all those dog movies, Jeffy.

JEFFY: They're police dog, military dogs.

GLENN: I haven't wanted to see a single one.

JEFFY: I know. But I'm forced to see them.

GLENN: This one is worth seeing.

PAT: Ben goes to the beach, Ben goes to the a cappella.

GLENN: This one is great. It's really great.

PAT: It's on demand now. You watched it like that?

GLENN: Yeah. Cheyenne said to me buy it or rent it? And I rarely say buy it. And Tonya said that she had talked to somebody who was just raving about it.

JEFFY: So just buy it.

GLENN: And I said buy it. Your mom's going to want to see it, thinking, you know, that's going to be a mistake. It's a stupid dog movie. It was fantastic. I loved it.

PAT: Number one movie at the fox office is fate of the furious.

JEFFY: It's going to be knocked off, though.

PAT: By guardians of the galaxy.

GLENN: After it made its billions of dollars. How much has it made worldwide?

PAT: Last week it was something like 200 million.

JEFFY: Yeah, it's in the hundreds of millions already.

GLENN: It's going to make a billion dollars.

JEFFY: That's what they were pontificating, when it would cut the billion-dollar mark. In the first two weeks.

GLENN: Oh, my god.

PAT: It's the first movie that come out in a long time that I wanted to see.

GLENN: Fast and the furious?

PAT: No, guardians.

GLENN: Guardians. I'm telling you, Chris -- what's his name?

PAT: Pratt.

GLENN: Pratt. Is he so great? So good. So likable. And, Chris, even if you are here and you agree with everything I say, I don't want to hear your political opinion. Even if you agree with everything I say, I don't want to know it. He is so great. So great.

JEFFY: Not a lot of us like that left anymore. You know what I'm saying?

GLENN: No, I don't know what you're saying.

A website called Spinquark just released a chilling article that reveals exactly how many people who are directly connected to the progressive political machine are now working for big tech to control our conversations online — and they're unquestionably interfering with the 2020 election.

Social media slavery: The government has found a 'constitutional' way to sidestep 1A

Social media companies aren't held to constitutional standards because they're private companies. But they're also protected by the government because they're considered "platforms," not "publishers." Well, the government has figured this out and has seen the power of using social media to circumvent the First Amendment and silence conservative voices.
