It's Memorial Day and most broadcasters take the day off. Not I, for the morans never rest. "Hell is for Children," as the song lyric goes, particularly when they're in a DHS cage somewhere in the Southwest. Pope Frank gets a nomination for his declaration that women should carry dead fetuses to term. The NY Times is up, as well, for Maggie Haberman's puff piece on the "existential crisis" of Hopey Hicks. There's a song Johnny Cash once sang, repurposed in the modern age to "Don't Take Your Gun to Lowe's, Son. Don't take your gun to Lowe's."
As ever, The H.O.R.N. relies on the community of people who want it to stay around, to keep it around. We need subscribers. They make it all the more sustainable. Got 40 cents a day? How about becoming a $10/month subscriber?

Late to the mic after the previous night's nasty weather, we jump right to the Extraordinary Ordinary Roundtable for a mix of pop culture, political insanity (is there any other kind these days), food porn, and the plain, old-fashioned neighborly conversation that marks Friday on the Front Porch as the unusually genial broadcast that it is and has been for years.
It really is an exceptional community that gathers for these broadcasts. If you'd like to join in, please do! If you'd like to part with less than 45 cents to help keep each show on the air, please become a subscribing member at $10/month.

We begin with a brief detour into general stupidity before drawing our focus into the Trumpian sort. Then: hail, high winds, and we bug out to the basement for a tornado warning, hence the shorter-than-usual program. The danger passed, as made obvious by the fact that I'm typing this. See my Twitter feed at HeadOn.Live for a couple of photos.

This Prayer Meetin' Wednesday interrupted by the TrumpSlump. Oh-for-2 this evening in cases he insisted be filed and no likelihood of breaking the slump anytime in the near future. Slumps will mess with you: just ask any athlete. They're obviously messing with the Nitwit Nero. His tantrum in the Rose Garden approached the kindergartenic (yes: I just made that word up).
We keep The H.O.R.N. going half a hasbrown patty at a time. Yes! That's right. For less than half the cost of half a McD's hashbrown patty per day, you can keep independent, liberal conversation radio ad-free and free to everyone who wants to listen. Beats the daylights out of SuperBeets ads and BuyGoldNow ads, doesn't it?!

Chaos in our country seems to be a prominent theme with everything from the border issues and immigration to Women's Rights. We discussed the issues being faced in Alabama with the Abortion Ban and the cruel and unusual punishment involving execution. How do we as a society exist in such a manner when basic human rights are under duress? Please join us next week to pick up where we left off on all these issues and more on The Virtual Center. Again, from all of us to you, thank you for your time and support.

The Trumptanic sails dead-ahead into an iceberg named "Justice." Ben Carson has a bad day. Ben Carson wants an Oreo. Understanding Impeachment, part the billionth.

Morans! There are more of them than we think. Terrorist numbers! Aiyeeeeee! "What chu readin' fer," as the woman once asked the Prophet Bill Hicks. Fox hosts wonder if the Jefferson Memorial will be torn down. Because morans. Trump's lawyers know he's one, too; but the checks keep clearing even as he keeps losing.

"Property" It's a simple enough noun, or so we think. Oops! Dr. Bill makes clear how much more complicated the Framers considered the term to be. Inequality becomes an even greater issue when you know what Madison, et al. meant.
The H.O.R.N. stays on the air, and is able to bring you Dr. Bill's incisive examinations of our national character, because people are willing to share less than 45 cents per day to keep it all going. That's what a $10/month subscription works out to be. Join the community in making sure this knowledge is available to all who want and need it.

From Alabama to Texas to Missouri to Ohio, the white-wing War on Women is fully engaged. Alabama has a slight edge, but only for the moment. Texas, seeking to punish women for controlling their own bodies, is coming up fast. The Extraordinary Ordinary Roundtable discussion is, as ever, not to be missed. The group assays Biden's candidacy, and there seems to be a consensus "Meh."
Want to help keep The H.O.R.N. going? It's easy, and it's cheap. A $10/month contribution works out to less than 45 cents per day. You can start the process here. PayPal or Patreon, either one is fine.

Busy program! House MAGAT has Pharma freak-out. AOC remains calm, blisters Pharma CEO. "No such thing as an incorrect opinion," claims MAGAT who's covered in them. Mohammed Bin Bonesaw stalks another victim. Republican senator tries the bully approach to bellicosity. Senate Republicans refuse to protect American elections. Julius Geezer proposes citizenship test neither he nor Melanoma could pass on a dare with a cheat sheet.
Independent liberal media is free at The H.O.R.N., but it's not free to produce. We need subscribers! Please help keep The H.O.R.N. accessible for everyone who wants it. It's as easy as less than 45 cents per day. It's all quick and easy right here.
