An unforced error by the Biden Admin begins our discussion. Rep. John Yarmuth of Kentucky stands up (again) for the suffering people of Appalachia. The Extraordinary Ordinary Roundtable group delves into the source of the homicidal rage of the man who murdered eight people in Atlanta.
Stickers! Thorns! Briars! How is it that everytime something awful happens in the South, there's some law enforcement Bubba there to make it worse? Senator Shelley Moore-Capito exposes the infamousness! There's a pretty wild story in here somewhere. Dan Fisher talks Oscars, how films are made, and what's new.
The murder of eight Asian women by a good, god-fearin', Bible-believin, upstandin', Christ-centered EVILgelical Gundamentalist Ammosexual Southern Baptist takes center stage
The morans overflowed onto the Titanic Tuesday decks. MAGAT loses it in Vegas Chipotle. Fox has a suessy over "cancel culture." Another state attacks trans kids, THE front in this year's vicious Republican culture wars. Sen. Whitehouse goes after B-b-b-b Bratt Kavanaugh and the FBI. Rep. Jamie Raskin eviscerates GymShorts Jordan. Nitwit Nero pleads for attention.
"Beware the Ides of March." OK, sure. But why? Meanwhile, two of the possible killers of Officer Sicknick have been arrested. Of course, one is from West Virginia.
Another fantastic discussion around the extraordinary, ordinary roundtable. Biden's speech, Cornholio's stupidity. Bobblehead Boebert is a mendacious twit
Joe Manchin is a thorn the size of a Common Railroad Spike. Look that up.
We're joined in the Cathedral of Common Sense by activist (and all-around great woman, and my good friend and mentor) Terri Ellen as we discuss the nearly nationwide assault on trans people and especially trans kids. You'll know everything you need to know to refute any booger-eatin' anti-trans MAGATS with whom you may (unfortunately) come in contact.
One of the joys of doing what I get to do is the opportunity to have a relaxed, un-scripted, freeform conversation with engaging conversationalists. This was one of those evenings. Barry Friedman, author of "The Joke Was On Me," without a doubt one of the most intense, personal, unsparing memoirs I have ever read was generous with his time and covered ground you've likely wondered about, but never knew.
Enjoy. I did.
We have a new administration, it's a new year, and yet we're still dealing with what the last four years has conditioned us to, a certain ideology that isn't working well with reality. The cult of Trump is leaving a decided dent in our relationships with each other and creating chaos in how we work together as communities. We can say it's a Party problem, but is it? Given the current trends among the GOP one might consider it's most likely a people problem. The people involved in the Party seem to have a very poor view of the people they serve and they want it all while taking away from the people they represent.
Not a good way to run a business and that's exactly what we've become. We the People need to form a more perfect union and establish domestic tranquility quickly or we're going to the end of the line in the world scheme. Is this where we truly want to be? Just remember, China has been waiting for just such events to occur that will propel them to where we once stood.
