ANOTHER NEW EPISODE! “Seeds from the Suicide Tree”

We had a short circuit a couple of days ago that lasted, at it’s peak of operations, I wanna say three days. That’s what results if you overload a power conduit, a wire or a serial bus. The wire or the bus melts and we see some smoke, and that one broken link disrupts the communication, and the power goes out. When I started observing the behavior, I wondered if it was possible this was the cycle of conditioning being interrupted by the short circuit that caused what I can only call “shared madness.” I know emotions can run high. We’re human. I know that. In those three days, I was surrounded by people who … this is hard to say. I was surrounded by people who turned into … monsters, or maybe monsters is too harsh a word. Maybe they were robots, given the contradictory result of a calculation they were told was solved.

Now, we have the misdirected anger, the first stage. It’s like a laser in a mirror ball, with destructive energy indiscriminately aimed at everything and everyone, even friends and loved ones. How did it become so personal? Isn’t this a struggle between two candidates? Join us for a lively discussion of how it happened, and why seeming normal, reasonable people went mad on that chilly Wednesday last week.

“You Can’t Kill What You Don’t Understand”

You-Can't-Kill-What-You-Don't-Understand

 

Tonight, Andrew and I discuss the candidates, Democrats and Republicans, but as with every conversation about this topic, we eventually talk Trump, and nothing but Trump!  This is the second take of the conversation because our first talk got so heated we had to re-record it just for the sake of getting our divergent view-points on the record.

BlissVille Fridays: “I Pulled My Muscle For Michelle”

I Pulled My Muscle For Michelle

NEW LOST EPISODE!

Liberals (and liberal feminists) are once again caught in a sticky situation, tethered to old, outmoded concepts while simultaneously attempting to reach to the stars for more progressive attitudes. Of course, I’m talking about Hookers For Hillary.
This is from Daily Beast:
Nevada’s infamous brothel Moonlite Bunny Ranch has launched a campaign dubbed “Hookers For Hillary.” The lovable ladies have come out in support of our former first lady in a serious, potentially large-scale campaign. These Everyday Americans have chosen their candidate.
Or their “champion”, as I would put it.
The impetus of such a decision on their part seems to be that for the first time ever in the history of prostitution, health care concerns have become manageable, but this is where they lose me because it wasn’t Hillary Clinton who pushed through the first legislation regarding health care in this country, and also if you’ve read the Affordable Care Act as drafted by the Obama Administration, it isn’t about health insurance or health care – it’s about creating a marketplace, that’s really it.
Hillary Clinton is an old-fashioned lady, one of several in the Nation that views prostitution and sex work as evil and amoral, and should be stamped out at all costs, so she’s getting an endorsement from her enemies and this very much reminds me of the Cougars from 2007-2008.
Now, you know Hillary is not going to want to have anything to do with this, right? How does she ignore Hookers For Hillary? How does she pretend they don’t exist?

It should go without saying (at this point) that Andrew and I have fairly loose tongues and we tend to pepper our speech with obscenity and profanity.  This is because we record a podcast in an atmosphere where we like to be comfortable.  If you are easily offended by harsh or foul language and terse pronouncements, don’t listen.
