Sometimes life intervenes in the everyday chaos of a mostly political radio show.
Ouch! A handy tool to gauge how serious a Senator is about the Climate Crisis is making its way (apparently rather quickly) through the Senate with the blessing of Moscow Mitch. The explanation is in the filibobster. Also: some discussion of last night's CNN candidate pageant. Pay no mind to the thunder in the background. It's that time of year.
A new month has begun and the first program of every month always features Bruce's Memorial Challenge. We met half of it and need the Overnight Crew to pick up the slack to the tune of 10 people at $10 apiece so we can qualify for the match. If you can help, please click this linky.
Glory! The Deacons got the night off thanks to everyone who keeps The HORN on the air. Nonetheless, the white-wing Religion Industry gets all wrapped in knots (supposedly) over pedophilia. Yet, as you'll learn this evening, they fulminate over imaginary pedophile rings while remaining as silent as the graven images they allegedly deplore when it comes to the real thing, the actual horror. Oh, and Michele Bachmann is back. Get the bucket. Also: a deconstruction of Tuesday's CNN Candidate Pageant.
Today's program follows up on yesterday's conversation with regard to Nationalism and a discussion on the second Democratic Debate and highlights from last night.
Full steam ahead! Trump USDA worried that too many poor children are eating too much free food. The GOP are who we thought they were, and have been for generations. There's even audio evidence. It's not enough to say "Trump is a racist." We need to say "Reagan was a racist," and "Nixon was a racist." It is, however, getting WORSE. BONUS: the stupidest, funniest thing Nitwit Nero has ever said.
A continuation of Monday's discussion. Everything from Jared Kushner's disgusting real estate holdings to Lincoln's thoughts on Karl Marx (HINT: he thought Marx was correct).
Trump is a white supremacist *and*, QED, a racist. Here's the question, though: is being a racist POTUS an impeachable offense? Why, as it turns out, yes, yes, it is! But wait, there's more! Rats!
What does Marxism and Abraham Lincoln have in common? A lot more than you know. What does it take to make America apathetic to the human condition? Misinformation. There's so much more than we can begin to cover in just a post, so we invite you to join in the conversation, whether it be on Social Media or joining us live on The Virtual Center, this is where we leave the stream open for you.
At the end of what feels like the longest week in a parade of long weeks, the Extraordinary Ordinary Panel gathers around the roundtable for the usual broad-ranging discussion of whatever's on our minds. There were a LOT of things on our minds. Also: Meagan McCain is still an idiot. Also, also: thanks to everyone who gives us a week of fund-raising-free radio!
A thorny filibobster. Nitwit Nero gets mocked by a mole at the Toilet Paper-USA conference. Hilarity ensues. GymShorts Jordan and Chippy Roy have a no good, rotten, very bad day in Congress. Meghan McCain gets a personal Civics lesson from Rep. Adam Schiff. I get repeatedly interrupted in the studio and have to cut the program short at 2.5 hours.
