We had a mention in the City Weekly’s blog today.
The Left Show’s J.M. Bell looks at how Eagle Forum president Gayle Ruzicka contradicted established research and killed an adoption bill in the Legislative session. The bill would have changed the standard so that Utah adoptions are considered open by default unless the birth mother specifically requests that they be closed. Ruzicka testified the change would lead to abortions, while other groups likes the American Adoption Congress have stated that if any effect is to be had by making them open by default, it is to actually increase the likelihood of adoption versus abortion.
“This particular bill pops up that would have made it easier for children seeking their biological parents to find them. Up pops Gayle Ruzicka, who lied her ass off to kill this bill … Ruzicka pops up and says that her fear is that if a single birth mother felt she could be contacted by her child later in life, she would be more likely to get an abortion, and all the Republicans were like, ‘Oh! That is such utter dipshit it must be true!’”—The Left Show
Hiya, folks! This is a “Best Of” The LEFT Show (The One With Brenda) as we get ready for our 100th Episode, our giant branding overhaul, getting Hold 322 moving to it’s new field of possibilities, and launching a couple of new shows for the network.
Basically, I’m busy as hell, and I’m going to start drinking in a few minutes.
This one has a Jason in it, too!
OMG, I think I’m hungover and I didn’t have a drop to drink. I finished off my bottle of 12 year old Glenlivet the Peter and Lisa Westbrook gave me for my birthday in 2009, a few weeks ago, and I won’t touch the Natural Light that Forrest left here.
Speaking of Forrest, he joined Jake and I in the studio for a Boxing Day Spectacular! Yay for boxing day!
We also covered movies that make Jake cry, movies that prove Forrest is a Robot, and the fact that I had a wee little weep at a Kevin Smith movie. Seriously!
Oh, yeah! Jason loses his temper in an all new Bat Sh@t Crazy, which is GREAT!
Oh, it’s Christmas Eve … so, hey, let’s talk about gun control, shall we?
There were so many different stories about gun control; like this, and this, and this, and this, and this. Oh, and, the NRA stepped out in front of some cameras and said some really dipshitty stuff. And the reactions were grand.
Look, oddly enough, we did have some fun, and shared some stories, and had a few laughs. Won’t you join us this festive eve of Jul (Yule, X-Mas, Christmas, whatever).
New News from the Walking Dead and Texas lets its ignorance bite it in the ass. The Boy Scouts of America continue to be just plain shitty and Bill O’Reilly tries to top them. The return of GOP Jesus (get it?) sees us stack the deck (with Satire) to make sure of the winner and Bristol Palin spends almost half a million dollars on her reality show.
Jason Williams is back to break down everything about health care … or something like that.
All this and more!
The downward spiral (in content) continues! Jeff, Jake, Jon, and Forrest are joined in studio by Alex Cragun from SLUG Magazine, who bears witness to yet another screwy, out of control episode. This Monday show feels like a Wednesday show … which should excite you for Wednesday’s show!
We begin with the sad stuff that quickly runs to anger and arguments. Helped by Bryan Fisher from the American Family Association and his asshat comments; Rupert Murdoch, and his startling comments; and the Rock Hill Herald just screws up in a massive EpicFail.
Gun Control beats Texas secession on the White House petition site, but, folks also want a giant Star Wars Death Star, so, for all our faults and horror, some Americans are still pretty awesome. Hostess CEO’s proudly admit to raiding pension funds before their Cut-N-Run; Senator Al Franken is the BESTEST; Romney Watch 2012 has yet ANOTHER epilogue, and one young man in California is a stand up guy!
All this and MORE!
