Class Today at NoBullU on WEBY

Listen to the voice of wisdom and reason in a wilderness of partisan rhetoric -- no political insanity, no conservative hypocrisy, no liberal foolishness -- Just straight talk, straight at you, and that’s no bull!!

NoBullU will broadcast today from 4:05 to 6:00 p.m. at 1330 AM WEBY and on line.


Local Business/Event Shout-Out: Happy Halloween!!, 2011 Halloween Light Show, and a reported Why Dogs Hate Halloween.

Follow-up: see below;

Fact-free fantasies of the shrieking hatemongers of right-wing rhetoric and partisan hackery: all part of the fundamentalist subculture of ignorance that embraces 'discredited, ridiculous and even dangerous ideas'

And America's preference for rhetorical fairy tales to unpleasant realities

One was gays in the military, funny thing, the world's still turning, not even a hurricane, earthquake or an oil well

Coincidentally enough it wasn't the end of the world, again, just after the Fact-Free Friday Show with our so-claimed viral Pastor.

And 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),

See The Fogbow, "your best resource for debunking the lies of the 'birther' movement and discussing the birther antics" and, there is even a Birther Case Scorecard, 0-80 for the birthers;

Local and regional: hasta la vista, when do I get my hurricane insurance refund, and
a local example of corrupt crony capitalism?;

National and international: I'm waiting, where's the balanced budget, don't hold you breath because the Republi-CONs Con the Tea Party, there'll be no $100 billion budget cut, and let's admit the obvious, the Republi-CONs are not serious about deficits, and who's responsible for the debt

To balance the budget, do nothing

Still no sign of those 'invisible [Republi-CON] bond vigilantes'

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.

Is the Republi-CON Race a Joke?

Is Cain "a mass practical joke of some type — 'Hey, let’s goof on the pollster and tell him 'Cain'!'

Or is Cain the 'none of the above' vote for those Republicans who haven’t decided to relent and back former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney but who can’t manage to utter the name of any other Republican contender for president?"

Read the Washington Post, A practical joke by GOP voters?, which concludes, "for those who think the presidential race is more important and more consequential than a reality show, they have to console themselves that Republican voters, when they actually get around to voting, will look for someone who seems to understand that comic relief is no reason to vote for a presidential candidate."

A Republi-CON 'My Family Escaped Communism' Myth

UPDATE II: Looks like Rubio also pressured Univision, a Spanish-language TV network based in South Florida to kill a story "on the 1987 drug-trafficking arrest of Rubio’s brother-in-law." Read the Washington Post, Marco Rubio on national ticket could be risky bet for Republican Party.

You may remember in 2010 it was reported that he "charged grocery bills, repairs to the family minivan and purchases from a wine store less than a mile from his West Miami home to the Republican Party of Florida while he was speaker of the Florida House."

That's why I call'em Republi-CONs!

UPDATE: Read more about it, at the St. Petersburg Times, Documents give shape to Marco Rubio's family history but raise new questions.

"During his rise to political prominence, Sen. Marco Rubio frequently repeated a compelling version of his family’s history that had special resonance in South Florida. He was the “son of exiles,” he told audiences, Cuban Americans forced off their beloved island after “a thug,” Fidel Castro, took power.

But a review of documents — including naturalization papers and other official records — reveals that the Florida Republican’s account embellishes the facts. The documents show that Rubio’s parents came to the United States and were admitted for permanent residence more than 2 1 / 2 years b efore Castro’s forces overthrew the Cuban government and took power on New Year’s Day 1959."

Read the Washington Post, Marco Rubio’s compelling family story embellishes facts, documents show.
