Years of Living Misogynistically

misogyny Syllabification: mi·sog·y·ny Pronunciation: /məˈsäjənē NOUN Dislike of, contempt for, or ingrained prejudice against women:she felt she was struggling against thinly disguised misogyny Welcome to 2014 - the year Misogyny went mainstream. Yesterday, the highest court in the land codified women's place as second class citizens into law with its misdirected and horribly wrong decision in the Hobby Lobby case. But the five Christian men on the court took it even a further step by saying that corporations religious rights trump the rights of said corporations' actual living, breathing female employees'! And this isn't the first time the Roberts-Alito-Scalia-Thomas-Kennedy court has ruled [...]

Supremely Wrong

The Supreme Court has now adjourned until the first Monday in October. My only wish is that they all ride off into obscurity. Or at least the five of them who insisted on being on the wrong side of everything today. The justices decided to wait until today to render their final two opinions - one that sticks a knife through the heart of organized labor in the US, the other further eroding the separation of church and state - and underscoring the second class citizen status of women in America. The first decision offered this morning was in Harris v. [...]

Gone Insane!

The world has indeed gone mad. We have religious zealots going all the way to the Supreme Court, claiming their religious freedom is being violated because they're not allowed to impose their religious beliefs on their employees. We have political opponents of the president claiming he's both a wimp/pussy/weak/feckless leader and a dictator at the same time. We have a country on the verge of descending into pure fascism, and people are either too busy, too broke or too uninformed to take the action necessary to turn things around. Please vote in November. Please support progressive candidates, as they're the [...]

Enough!

It's a double header today, as I'm guest hosting the Randi Rhodes Show this afternoon (3-6ET)... But it's time we say enough. We're on the verge of the end of sanity, and we must take action to stop the hemorrhaging of democratic principles! Yesterday, I heard Randi mention the 14 Characteristics of Fascism - and if we're not there yet, we're awfully close! This morning on my show, I spoke with Claire Conner, author of Wrapped in the Flag (now out in paperback) her story of growing up with parents who were original members and top lieutenants in the John [...]

Two-Fer Tuesday!

It's another busy day in radio land... I just finished this morning's show (which you can hear by clicking the player at the top of this post), and will shortly head up to Randi Rhodes' studio to guest host her show this afternoon.  As her former XM channel no longer exists, you can listen on any of her affiliate stations via the TuneIn Radio app on your smart phone or directly from randirhodes.com. This morning on my show, I spoke with RH Reality Check's Adele Stan about how the Catholic Church is actively working with some members of Congress to [...]

The End of the (Unintentionally) Funniest Fall TV Series Ever?

At first, I thought I was the only one giggling at the inane things that came out of the mouths of these mental midgets, but then I checked the rating! The nation was laughing too. Historically, debates of this sort didn't garner much attention.  But when the inmates took over the GOP asylum, the debates were appointment viewing, with drinking games anew for each and every episode.  Perhaps some were watching, hoping against hope that the trap door would open beneath each idiotic contender as they were voted off the ballot by viewers in their living rooms. Alas, that didn't [...]
