Every person you think is full of shit is full of shit. But so are you. And so am I. What's up reddit maniacs? Ask me anything about my new hour standup special ‘Libertas’ where I shit on Trump and Hillary, I move Israel to Canada, and I tell Isis they're not scary. You can also ask me about my podcasts Part of the Problem and Legion of Skanks or whatever you'd like.
Here are some clips from the special:
whats it like dating jay lenos chin's daughter? ; do you get to ride the chins cars?
So many meanies here on the reddits
Hey Dave, can ya loan me $5? C'mon, I'm dyin' ovah here!
Is Luis right next to you? If so can you tell him to give up his dumb skateboard lifestyle because it annoys everyone and creeps out kids in skateparks
I've tried everything I can. He won't stop.
When will you finally marry Luis for the show?
NOT. GOING. TO. HAPPEN.
Hey, Dave, reddit maniac here, can you ask Luis to stop stealing my fucking material?
Parallel thinking bro
What's the story with Michael Malice's grandpa? Why won't Michael take his calls? I heard he may be hiding in Portland.
I'm not aware of the situation
How annoyed are you when Sherrod Small forces himself on GaS shows? Even Che looks annoyed by him. Does Luis let him stay because he doesn't want his ass kicked like Mark Normand?
Luis is intimidated by most of our guests.
Hey, Dave, big fan and reddit maniac here. Are you aware Dave Smith rhymes with Gay Bitch?
Not really a clean rhyme
If you had to taste one mans cum would it be Luis or Jays?
Every day I ask myself that question and I still haven't figured it out.
Hey Dave, it would be awesome to hear you debate someone from antifa on Part of the Problem. Any chance of that happening?
I'm down, but I don't know where to find one who is willing.
Recently on the Real Ass Podcast Nick Mullen said that Libertarianism is inherently morally bankrupt, and you can't admit it because now you're a libertarian ideologue. Any chance you can get him or others on the show? You keep talking to alt-right and libertarian people, but 99% of the people I talk to are liberals. Some of us would like to hear how you would talk to a lefty. Love you Dave and just bought the special!
I'm down to have Nick on. I few people told me about that, I didn't hear it. It sounds like Nick is confused abut my position, but it wouldn't be the first time.
Do you still blame Dan Soder for Legion of Skanks impending demise?
No, that's silly. It's half jay's fault too.
Why don't you just rename it Gash Digital?
Not my call
Why is Thomas_Daly such a cunt?
I don't know who that is.
Dave, around 2008-2009, you and a girl came to my apartment in downtown BK to hang out. I wanted to hook up with her, but you wouldn't leave and just kept smoking weed and eating dominos. Eventually I think she either decided to leave or passed out on the couch, I can't remember. Did you do that on purpose or were you just oblivious that I was trying to smash? C'mon bro.
Edit: you were also playing Madden
That didn't happen.
As a libertarian what can you point to as the last major victory for advancing liberty? That tends to be my biggest issue with the entire philosophy as it seems that every major policy decision goes the other direction and I don't see many libertarians with actual practical solutions that will move us towards a freer society.
That's not a problem with the philosophy, but it is a big problem. Nobody is moving us towards a freer society, that's the problem. libertarians are far from the only ones who don't have practical solutions for this. If anyone does, I'm all ears.
Also tell him to stop having Jimmy Martinez on LOS, he stinks and nobody likes him.
I thought that was a great episode.
Hey Dave I'm a huge fan of yours and of the gas digital movement. Legion of skanks is my favorite podcast.
Do you think there will be a more main stream showing of podcasts? As in car companies coming loaded with podcast packages or more mainstream advertising coming into the podcast world.
I think it's happening. Look at what Rogan is doing, that guy has a bigger audience than jesus. Maron interviewed Obama! The podcast revolution has begun and will continue to grow.
How many people has Hillary Clinton personally killed?
maybe a dozen, probably millions through votes.
If you had the ability to go back in time and speak with yourself, would you tell past Dave to not do this AMA?
No, I'm having fun answering questions.
Did you watch the Fairly OddParents when growing up and we're you sexually attracted to the Crimson Chin?
I'm too old for that show. I watched Bugs Bunny.
I had to stop watching 15 minutes in when he started acting like Luis getting bitten by a dog was the wildest story he'd ever heard in his life. He's nearly as bad as Sherrod.
Luis didn't get bit. you should listen to the rest of that story, it was great.
In your opinion, what is the most widely misunderstood libertarian position?
The whole philosophy is so misunderstood it's hard to say. I guess it's the central issue that all the government can do is throw people in cages or threaten to. That's all that they do.
if Jay and Luis had a 3 round MMA fight, how much money do you put on who, and why?
It's interesting. Jay is crazy strong, but Luis is in much better shape. Jay would probably crack jokes that got in Luis' head. Jay by 2nd round TKO.
How do you manage to discuss politics in your routine without alienating everyone?
I focus on the funny. If it's funny enough, people can't fight it.
I can't get Libertas to download. Tell me, do you think this is the work of the deep state trying to limit the freedom movement?
I am married into a Jewish family, and more and more I realize Jewish people especially the women being very rude, not hostile but treating me as if I were their employee. Why does this happen?
You might just be married into a family of cunts. I haven't noticed the problem.
Love Part of the Problem. Listen religiously. I plan on buying Libertas later.
My question: Would you ever consider coming to Ireland for a show? Love to see ya over here!
Thanks for the podcast!
Thank you. Sure, I would love to go to Ireland. I've never been.
Why did Bush do 9/11?
What's your free market solution to DACA. Should we let the government figure out the legality of it and have private citizens donate for the kids college?
The free market solution is don't force tax payers to subsidize other people's kids. The charity idea seems good.
Who is your least favorite famous Libertarian?
i hope the hurricane swallows your home and children
I'm not in that part of the country
Why does Nick Mullen look like Ned Flanders now? Is he trying not to get pussy?
I don't understand it
Have you noticed that your girlfriend Lauren is starting to develop a genuine sexual and romantic connection to the character Chip Chipperson?
I'm not joking or trying to do cute subreddit memes for upvotes. I genuinely have noticed this.
Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying she's into Norton. But the role play between her and Chip is crossing the line into something real.
In the first few podacast episodes, she seems cold and unimpressed towards Chip. As the show progresses, she begins to show genuine signs of attachment and attraction. Her eyes light up when he enters the room. When he flirts with other women, she shows genuine jealousy, even if under the guise of a joke. Her sing songy voice and sparkly eyes while interacting with him in general are also a red flag.
Are you okay with this? And does the fact that Norton DEFINITELY jerks off thinking about Lauren bother you?
Dave your thoughts
hahaha I'm pretty sure you jerk off to her, and it's fine, you can continue to. It is fucking fascinating what a thrill it is for you guys.
When can I find Libertas on Google Play? Checked a few times this morning and haven't seen it.
I feel bad when I get these questions because I'm no help. You have to ask gasdigital guys the technical stuff, I have no idea.
Hey were you scared/uncertain about releasing your special on GaS digital? (I know Luis J Gomez is your brother and Ralph is tall and sexy)
No, that company has changed my life. I really believe in those guys.
Hey Dave, new Part of the Problem listener here. As a disaffected liberal, I think libertarianism might be dealing with a communication problem. I was liberal b/c I was convinced of the faux solutions they preached (pro science, pro intellectual, utilitarian ethically). Libertarianism convinced me with superior arguments. If libertarianism preached it's methodological superiority in HELPING the greatest # of people (effectively match the left's moral posturing but w/ additional rationality), I think you'd win more disaffected liberals. Speaking in the language of utilitarian ethics is what would have gotten through my thick liberal skull. What do you think? P.s. big fan and can't wait to see the special.
Thanks for listening. I do this we need a moral message. Big government is evil and we're living through proof of that. I'm not sure it needs to be a utilitarian argument.
Why is Louis J Gomez a Puerto Rican "rattlesnake"?
Only he knows
Your dick jokes paved the way for me to Tom Woods and the Mises Institute, I never set out to lean Rothbardian - but here I am, so thanks. As far as a question.. I have a fantasy scenario to pitch you. What do you think the chances are that we can get a Cantwell/Woods debate on White Nationalism - moderated by you? I see you as the the guy to bridge the gap, but I don't see Tom ever going for it. In my amateur mind, I see a lot of overlap between the two ideologies and really am not sure where I stand.
I don't see that happening for a number of reasons but it would be fun. That white nationalism shit is a bad path to go down. It dissolves into left wing identity politics real quick.
Of all the subhuman races, which are you most glad not to be a part of?
I love all of gods children.
Dave Why won't you mouth kiss Big Jay?
Just doesn't feel right
What was your comedy like before you started discussing politics? How did that transition go?
I joked about drugs and sex and pop culture. It was a smooth transition because I didn't force it in. It happened naturally.
Come on...be a bold comic and make a stand against Amy Schumer joke stealing. Why won't any comics say anything?
The sketch stuff got the attention it deserved. I've never been convinced she stole any stand up bits. I have problems with Amy but not her "stealing".
Dave, if the US gov't said they would either end the Fed, free all non violent criminals and stop locking up further non violent criminals, or stop bombing the shit out of foreign countries and you got to pick which of the 3 that it was, which would you pick?
end the wars
I am a midwesterner that never planned on visiting NYC, but I would love to go for a POTP live episode. Any chance that happens?
PS. I loved when you called out CNN for leaking Hillary debate questions on their affiliate station. You have been killing it lately on the podcast and cable TV. Keep up the good work
Thank you, I think we will do a live show at some point.
Fuck, marry, kill.
Amy Schumer, Kaytlin Bailey, Alison Klemp?
Marry Amy, easy call she's rich. Flip a coin for the other two.
