HLC-138 You May say I’m a Dreamer

Welcome to the Harvard Lunch Club podcast for Septembr 5, 2017, it’s the You May Say I’m a Dreamer edition of the podcast with your hosts, Todd Feinburg, radio talk show host and Mike Stopa, nanophysicist. This week we are inclined, nay, veritably forced into the two topics of the week – (1) the end (or not the end) of DACA and (2) the end (no, no not the end!) of Western Civilization as brought to you by Kim Jong Un.

Mike makes a prediction that Trump will – as planned – announce the end of DACA in six months and that Congress – in Congressional best form – will do nothing during that six months and that (maybe) DACA will end uneventfully. Of course, the only time I predict continued Congressional gridlock may turn out to be the only case where Congres actually gets something done.

Todd and I each discuss what we (haters that we are) would be willing to give up in order to be willing to swallow DACA amnesty.

Then, he’s back! No, he just hasn’t gone anywhere. Kim continues to strut his stuff on the world stage. As mouse plays with cat we ask: what is the “psychology of appeasement” and how do we ever get to the point of unleashing the dogs of war?

We will have as usual our shower thoughts and in honor of Walter Becker we will have Steely Dan’s Razor Boy as our hidden gem.
