Another reason to vote against HRC

This meme has gotten a real workout over the past few weeks as a Hillary talking point. The implication is that if the Senate won’t confirm Obama’s pick for SCOTUS as a replacement for Antonin Scalia, we should all vote for HRC because she’ll put Obama in the position. *sigh* One of the problems I […]

anybody else feel this way?

First the political, then the personal.  Anybody else feel this way lately– like your brain is being eaten? That it ain’t the heat, it’s the stupidity?  That there are too many dumb and-or crazy things going on to address? The inspiration for this essay came to me a few weeks ago, when it was announced that […]

Quick note about open carry

Being that I’m ostensibly a good liberal, I’m getting the pictures and fundraising e-mails and Facebook links of the Open Carry ‘activists’ congregating at stores. Target is not the only such store–open carry advocates are packing heat in malls, restaurants and bars. Lots of outrage on the internets machines I thought I’d chime in. Two […]

Tangerine Bolen, the NDAA and the Surveillance state

This is a follow-up to my Sex and Politics radio interview with Tangerine Bolen the other night. You’ll be able to hear it at our podcast site over the next few days, but the important part is here. I say this knowing that some of what I put forward here will be dismissed as conspiracy […]

Tonight on Sex and Politics: Tangerine Bolen

Tonight on Sex and Politics, I’ll be talking to Tangerine Bolen, Executive Director of Revolution Truth, and a plaintiff in the critical case to overturn the military detention provisions of the NDAA.  Yesterday, an appeals court has overturned the injunction granted by Judge Forrest, which prevented enforcement of Section 1021 of the Act. THIS APPLIES […]

FIGMENT EVENT TOMORROW! (unless it rains like crazy)

Wow. So I was kinda/sorta invited to crash the Figment event tomorrow at Governor’s Island in New York. I’m doing a long version of my one-man show HOW TO STOP THE EMPIRE WHILE KEEPING YOUR DAY JOB. If you’ve seen me on YouTube, this will have new detail on another activity that will bring the […]

Don’t know much about a Cornucopia of Conspiracy Theories

In my play HOW TO STOP THE EMPIRE WHILE KEEPING YOUR DAY JOB, the character known as Jerry takes on the issue of the people who deride him as a conspiracy theorist–and those who use the phrase ‘conspiracy theorist’ as a pejorative term: “People call me a conspiracy theorist for saying that Obama signed the […]

the back-and-forth on the gun debate

A couple of weeks ago, I tried to line up the contradictions of the pro-gun lobby’s version of history. This was in reaction to two pro-gun guys being on WBCR Sex and Politics. Last night, we played host to another Second Amendment advocate, and I was able to bring out some of the more nuanced […]

My WBCR segment that went AWOL

So there we were Thursday night on WBCR, our second segment of 2013. And things were jumpin’. We had discussion about the Barghouti lecture at Brooklyn College about the BDS movement to sanction Israel for its continued ‘Palestinian Apartheid’. The lecture was going on as we broadcast, so getting into the station involved getting past […]
