I have been blogging online since before there were blogs. I continue blogging from time to time on various subjects here and as much of my past blogging as I've been able to recover is found here as well.
Last week, the Reaper overdid it by taking from us three headline acts. This week, we return to our world tour of the obscure, including rap from Mexico and Nigeria, American ska, English country-rock, a triple shot of jazz, some Christian Rock, and pop singers from the Czech Republic, Turkey, India, and France.
As UNC goes into its second active shooter lockdown this semester, I explain how progressives need to treat the 2nd Amendment like conservatives treated Roe v. Wade, with a half-century plan to couple ownership of modern arms with membership in a county militia.
Some weeks the Reaper takes us on a trip into the obscure. This week is definitely not one of those. The Reaper was busy Labor Day Weekend and took from us an All Star, a Dream Weaver, and the King of the Parrotheads, each of whom could be our headliner.
Now that Republicans have succeeded in overturning Roe v. Wade and establishing abortion bans in most of the red states, they’re concerned that being “pro-life” is going to abort their chances of re-election, so they want to re-brand as “pro-baby.”
I often hear folks say Republicans and Democrats are “two wings of the same bird” or “two sides of the same coin.” I demonstrate the statistics and policies to show how only one side of the coin makes us more coin and only one bird is shitting all over minorities.
It’s Labor Day Weekend and the Grim Reaper is ushering in Back to School season by taking the game show host you watched staying home from school. We’ve got backing musicians, producers, and songwriters from some of the biggest acts in the US and UK, as well as international acts from Trinidad, Sweden, Nigeria, and Brazil.
Alabama and Idaho want to prosecute women who obtain abortions in other states. I explain how that sounds a bit like the case of Dred Scott, the Black man who escaped his enslavement and moved to a free state, only to be returned by a Supreme Court that declared him property.
I used to be a Twitter power user, but since Elongated Muskrat has turned it into a Nazi pub, I have since migrated to Threads. Whaddaya gonna do? It’s the social media run by the lesser-evil billionaire. I’m on Mastodon (or maybe not, if that mstdn.plus server is no more), Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, and TikTok as well, just not as often.
