222 The LEFT Show – Flu and Regrets

Bit up a mixing up this week, as we sent Bob home sick, and then, later, sent JC home sleepy, but I had Melissa here, and we welcomed Chis Hoffman of Hoffmangler Studios and The Salt City Stranger in the studio. JM is in a better mood this week, and things move along at their weirder rate.

Ernestine Johnson

This young woman speaks a truth that I can only recognize, but can never know with this intensity.

Big guys – it’s always thought that big and strong = dumb, and while that’s been a peeve for all of my years, I can always sit down; Ernestine Johnson doesn’t have the option, and that’s why I can never know. Never know the feeling, though, doesn’t lessen the level of my understanding. Understanding, unless you’re a total jerk off, should lead to working toward a solution. Share this with your shit head relatives, firends, and those asshats at work.

I Believe: The Lie and Delusion of the LDS “Big Step”

The LDS Church’s “Big Step” yesterday was nothing more than a well crafted, sugar coated move to legalize bigotry and discrimination; you know, as long as you sprinkle enough Jesus on your hate. This is poison. This is bad, and the number of people jumping on the Kool-Aid train is not only startling, it’s mind mindbogglingly worse.

Beliefs are tricky. I believe that the LDS Church should pay taxes. I believe that my pals on the left that think something amazing happened yesterday, need to catch the shuttle out of Stepford, and settle into some serious rational, intellectual thinking; casting aside the feel good fiction they’re helping to manufacture.

From the Huffington Post:

The new Mormon position is like that candy with a razor blade inside that your mom warned you about on Halloween. While calling for LGBTQ people to be protected from those who hate them for non-religious reasons (and who are those people, anyway?), they have hidden their real agenda, which is to legalize such discrimination by anyone who claims their prejudice is backed by faith.

I believe that the Republican dumbing down of America was engineered for exactly this kind of thing – an ignorant population, blissfully cheering their own repression, ’cause the pretty talk sounds like nice words, even if they don’t know what the words mean anymore.

I believe that using the Oxford comma is what separates us from the animals.

221 The LEFT Show – I Just Don’t Get It

I’m having a rough time keeping my energy up, but I was rescued this week by Taylor, Bob, and Kristal Starr Nelson from the Hello Sweetie Podcast. We cover all the things we normally do, including President Obama’s State of the Union address, more wackiness from the Gun Nut Lobby, another insane Cop Murders Unarmed Black American, and the most insane video of white privilege you’ve ever seem (heard).

All this, and, oh, so much more! Clean your poopers, folks! It’s time for The LEFT Show!
