Thankfully, this country seems to have reached the tipping point on guns. I say thankfully because we can't take another Newtown or Aurora or Tuscon or Portland or Ft. Hood .... Yesterday, on the second anniversary of the Tuscon shootings, former gun rights advocate and shooting victim, former Congresswoman Gabby Giffords and her husband Mark Kelly announced the formation of a new group (PAC) called Americans for Responsible Solutions for the purpose of raising money to fight back against the NRA. Today, VP Joe Biden and his task force begin three days of meetings with different groups from all [...]
**Update... today's podcast is now available. Just click the player above to listen, or go to the video page to watch. Also, today's TRNS update came from the wonderful Victoria Jones, who wrote "Sharron Angle -- Bill of Rights? On Her Terms Only" for Huffington Post today. Definitely worth reading!*** Depending on what report you're reading, Google has gone evil (we already know Verizon is!), or they've come to their senses. Unfortunately, I'm leaning toward the former. The Daily Beast can try to paint this as nothing to worry about: Google, Verizon Back Net Neutrality You can turn off the [...]

No, I won't be bouncing my boobies today. Not that there's anything wrong with that... but that is Randi's thing. So, I'll defer to her on that one. But I also thank Randi profusely for allowing me to speak into her microphone this week, and trusting me with her wonderful listeners. To close out the week, we once again have a stellar line-up of guests... We'll start off with the peace mom herself, Cindy Sheehan. Cindy's in DC these days, leading Peace of the Action- -still working toward a peaceful world. John Nichols, Washington correspondent for The Nation, will be [...]
That's what Randi Rhodes says each Friday as she launches into "Bounce Your Boobies" to start her show. Well, Randi's off today, and I'm guest hosting. I hope you don't mind, but I shall not be singing the customary Friday song. I simply could not do it justice, so we'll all just have to go through boobie withdrawal until next Friday. I'm sure you'll understand. We do have a busy show for you today... Lots to talk about, including my theory that most of the Republican party and their followers tend to live in some sort of "opposite world" or [...]
It's a Tuesday that felt like a Saturday to me. That's only because school's out this week, so I have my kid under foot. And my sister is in town for a photography event called After Dark. So, today, my daughter Alison and I headed down to South Beach where she was a model. My sister promised to turn her into a mermaid and a fairy. 'Nuff said! I'll post the pictures when I get them back. In the meantime, here's one I took with my cell phone while we were waiting... (Yes, there's a reason my sister [...]
