This week, Josh and Parker discuss the largest education budget in Alabama history and whether it was a wise move for a state likely to see decreased revenue in the future. We then discuss Rep. April Weaver’s resignation from the Legislature for a spot in the Trump administration as well as the rejection of an LGBT charter school’s application to open in Birmingham.

In national news, we discuss the GOP winning congressional special elections in Wisconsin and California and whether or not that bodes badly for Biden in November. We also wonder if the Wisconsin Supreme Court has been listening to Liberty First (a member of the 1819 Podcast Network).

We wrap up the show with an engaging discussion about bible translations and oranges.
