NEWS: Special The Big Takeover Show - November 14, 2016 - Unusual Election Speech & Theme

Jack Rabid - office - 2010
18 November 2016

Jack Rabid at his office – 2010

“This week’s The Big Takeover Show – Number 95 – November 14, 2016 is a special 2016 election-themed broadcast about sadness, anger, resolve, and intelligent history. It is a special show for me, especially my opening speech about the election that goes on for five minutes, which I am hearing people are really struck by (I didn’t really think that much about it before-hand; just speaking from the heart, as I do at times when something is really on my soul.) I offer it in the hopes that it might be of some help to those still reeling from last week’s travesty/debacle/horror/farce/bitter taste.”

- Jack Rabid
