Local Business Shout-Out: Holy Smoke LLC, 11532 Old Ganey Road, Stockton, Alabama, "Planning a loved ones final arrangements can be a challenging responsibility, one you want to do with care and consideration. Allow Holy Smoke to help you create a tribute to your outdoorsperson like no other."

Follow-up: for long-time listeners who remember this oldie but goodie, "a $1,000 five day vacation to a South Carribean island with private bungalo and food, fun, and surf provided could put their name on the list and be considered for selection by the Goodin Travel Agency"

Fact-free fantasies: my so-called 'obsession' with the shrieking hatemonger of right-wing rhetoric and partisan hackery, pandering to fear, anger and hatred,

don't be duped by the Birthers, including our very own Pastor Dred Scott (you may remember the infamous Dred Scott decision of 1857, which asserted that African Americans were "beings of an inferior order" who "had no rights which the white man was bound to respect." That ruling declared that African Americans could never be U.S. citizens and therefore could never be President), and

Church support for slavery and opposition to civil rights (4 major American Churches split over the issue of slavery, forming northern and southern factions, including:

The Methodist Church: In 1861, the North Carolina Christian Advocate wrote of "the demon spirit of abolitionism" and how Southern Methodists had "tested it fully, and found it to be heartless, inhuman and Christless." Although the two factions reunited in 1939 as the Methodist Church, they retained racial segregation.

The country's Presbyterian Church also split into two.

The Baptist Church: The Southern Baptists are the largest and most reactionary christian denomination in the USA. They split away from the Baptists in 1845 over slavery, because they thought that slavery was okay. After the civil war, some Southern Baptists founded the Ku Klux Klan. In the 1960s, the Southern Baptists supported segregation laws and opposed the black civil rights movement. In 1995, the Southern Baptist Convention issued an apology to all African-Americans and asked for their forgiveness.

Local and regional: park bait and switch, the GOB network at work in Podunkville-cola, the sad case of the Avalon Middle School principal, and the sadder case of Warren Williams;

Donate to a good cause: read "the story of a 9-year-old girl who teaches us adults about maturity truly renews our faith in humanity" at The New York Times, Rachel’s Last Fund-Raiser.

I'll discuss anything, but expect a no mercy take down if you are a shrieking hatemonger of right-wing rhetoric and partisan hackery, pandering to fear, anger and hatred, because the truth sure makes it hard out there for the party pimps.

So tune-in, call-in, but only if you can handle the truth and some ass kickin' discussion of politics and current events.

Ashes to Ashes, to 'Fully-Functioning' Bullets to 'Continue to Protect Your Home and Family Even After You Are Gone'

Believe it or not, "Alabama company Holy Smoke turns loved ones' ashes into real bullets that can be used to hunt turkeys on Thanksgiving." Watch Stephen Colbert, From Ashes to Bullets:

If you want "Holy Smoke to help you create a tribute to your outdoorsperson like no other", see their website.

Obama the One Term President, Hell Hath No Fury Like a Liberal Chumped Again

UPDATE III: Happy Birthday Obama! "The good news is that, although unemployment remains hideous, you, personally, are employed, which is always good for a man at the half-century mark in an economy that increasingly views middle-aged workers as health care time bombs. The bad news is that you may get laid off in just 17 months. I don’t think that’s the likeliest outcome, but recent events have made the 2012 election look very much in play.

[Of course, t]he Republicans may yet bail you out by nominating someone who wants to return to the Gold Standard, or who says flouride in the drinking water is a communist plot, or who has pledged fealty to a demon dwelling in the hollow Earth. But I think it’ll be Mitt Romney. Romney’s not the perfect candidate, but he’s not going to scare 2/3rds of the electorate like some of the GOP hopefuls. He’s the frontrunner and frontrunners usually win."

Read the Washington Post, Obama Five-oh.

UPDATE II: "When handling budget negotiations, Troll Obama should never have let the Republican billy goats clomp over his bridge." So says Stephen Colbert as he recounts Obama's negotiating style in a storybook adaptation he calls, "Three Billy Goats Gruff" Budget Negotiations:

UPDATE: Some Naive-ocrats now realize they've been chumped again by the Republi-cons.

"Jon Stewart, the most intellectually astute of the left's comic darlings, went after President Obama in hilarious fashion", in a piece called Dealageddon, A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Compromise:

The debt deal farce "will damage an already depressed economy; it will probably make America’s long-run deficit problem worse, not better; and most important, by demonstrating that raw extortion works and carries no political cost, it will take America a long way down the road to banana-republic status." So says the 2008 winner of the Nobel Memorial Prize in Economics. Read The New York Times, The President Surrenders.

And another commentator speculates that Obama is just 'playing the angles and wonders whether we are "living through yet another failed presidency." Read The New York Times, The Diminished President.
