Cenk Uygur

As you can see I have a lot of political books mixed with some Game of Thrones and Hunger Games. Yes, I want to decide to play great poker and I also want to know the real untold history of the United States. We have a couple of “intellectual” books on Pervs and Sluts. We even have an old Elvis cassette that my wife found recently and stuck in there. What does that show you – how old I am. I still have cassettes!

I want to know how we can fight back against the assault on reason, I want to know how we can fight back against the Koch Brothers and I also want to know how to fight back against the Capitol (whether it’s in Hunger Games or This Town). Throw in a couple of books on how to make your company better and make yourself better and you have a decent snapshot of what I care about. I’m just keeping it Marcus Aurelius.
