Who IS this guy?!
Political Talk Show Host and Internet Radio Personality. My show, In My Humble Opinion, (original, huh?) airs on Tuesdays at 10:PM and Sundays at 3:PM, Eastern time on RainbowRadio. (And it usually starts a few minutes early, so don't be late!)
I cover politics from all over the map, much as I used to do on this blog, and have a particular focus on LGBTQIA+ issues in general, and Transgender rights in particular. The show frequently features guests, including cartoonists, authors, musicians, filmmakers, etc... either from the LGBT community, our who are producing media relevant to that audience. Other topics of interest to me include Electoral Politics, Economics, Racial Justice, Health Care, Feminism, keeping Religion out of Politics and Politics out of Science.
I'm always keen to hear from fans and critics alike, so please feel free to contact me at email@example.com with any questions, comments or suggestions for future guests or topics. You can also friend me on Facebook, follow me on Twitter, Tumblr and if you miss an episode, you can catch my podcast either here, on the Radio Page, or by following me on Mixcloud.
Finally, the Brick-and-Happy Gun logo was done by Munky Wrench, of Bent Wrench Studios, whom I heartily recommend for ANY of your graphic-art needs, and I'd like to thank Barbara Sobel for taking a chance on me, and giving me the opportunity to take my message to such a larger audience.

He said I didn't honestly answer his [goofy, IMHO] question about aborting homosexuals, and that he really wanted to know how I felt. Well... that's odd, seeing as how I've written extensively on both topics over the past three years, and have permanent tabs at the top of the page on both Abortion and LGBT Issues, giving a quick rundown of my feelings on both of these matters, if anyone is interested. So I don't know if this accusation comes from either laziness or illiteracy, but there is little more I can say about Abortion or Gay Rights at this point that I haven't said a dozen times already. So... RTFB, if you honestly can't understand the answer I gave you.
He also accused me of HYPOCRISY. See... I guess I say a lot of BAD THINGS about people that I think are bad people. No.. .I take that back. State it more honestly, I should say that I take GREAT PRIDE in the things I say about VILE, BIGOTED, GREEDY, DISHONEST People. And by some wild universal coincidence, it seems that 90-some percent of these people are Conservative, or Right-Wing, Public Figures.
OMFG! HOW DID THIS HAPPEN?!
Now I get the hypocrisy accusation a lot. I do. And I invite it.I really do. Because in truth, I'm fairly outspoken about the fact that there is scarcely a vice I can't tolerate, save for hypocrisy. I loathe hypocrisy above all else. I could even forgive a murder, and yet happily kill the accused myself, should he walk out off death row on a technicality and then go on to become an agressive death penalty proponent and fourth ammendment opponent. And so: Should anyone ever manage to catch me in a bit of hypocrisy... WELL, HEY... They've WON, haven't they? And typically lacking any actual evidence to support their arguments, that remains the ONE WAY, the one SUREFIRE way, that a Conservative could actually BEAT ME in an argument.
So I'm not shy about the fact that I get that. A LOT. The problem is?
Conservatives don't understand the first fucking thing about hypocrisy. They couldn't properly identify hypocrisy if it turned itself into a snake and bit them in the ass. Which is probably why their more prominent spokespeople are all such raving, intellectually dishonest HYPOCRITES.
But what about me?
Well... IF I UNDERSTAND his accusation correctly - and I'm sure he'll need no encouragement to clarify things if I'm missing something - it appears that it is hypocritical of me to say bad things about people who I believe are bad because they say bad things about people.
And, yeah, I suppose that can look like hypocrisy... if you're an idiot.
Because to follow that logic? You can never judge ANYONE! Suddenly, magically, ANYTHING GOES! Someone could go around calling every Black person he saw a Nigger right to their face, and no one could say that this guy was being an ignorant racist, jackass, because THAT... would be hypocritical.
But... of course that's completely idiotic.
The fact is? That there is no hypocrisy in calling a vile person, a vile person. When they say vile things about otehr people, you do not become a vile person in pointing out that they are a vile person! DUH! One does not need to be tolerant of intolerance in order to avoid hypocrisy. Now... I'll give you a BE-YOU-TIFUL example of what I'm talking about...
Starting yesterday, and continue on to today, Rush Limbaugh actually had the audacity to refer to a Law Student, who was advocating up for women's health care a "SLUT" and a "PROSTITUTE." His misogynistic vitriol continued today.
Limbaugh: "I Will Buy All Of The Women At Georgetown University As Much Aspirin To Put Between Their Knees As They Want"
Limbaugh Lectures Georgetown Student: "Ms. Fluke, Have You Ever Heard Of Not Having Sex?"
Limbaugh Demands Women With Contraceptive Coverage Post Sex Videos Online "So We Can All Watch"
Limbaugh To Sandra Fluke: "Who Bought Your Condoms In The Sixth Grade?" (holy fucking crap!)
Limbaugh's Misogynistic Attack On Georgetown Law Student Continues With Increased Vitriol
Limbaugh: Sandra Fluke Is "Having So Much Sex, It's Amazing She Can Still Walk" (OMFG!)
Limbaugh: Five Dollars For A Month Of Birth Control? "That Makes PMS Almost Worth It" (Really, Rush? Really?)
So... here's my answer: Rush Limbaugh is a vile, despicable, chauvinistic, misogynistic SCUMBAG.
Now... let recap: Limbaugh said some mean things about Sandra Fluke. And I said some mean things about Rush Limbaugh for doing that. Shame on me? Shame on my hypocrisy?
Did you have a fucking brain tumor for breakfast?!
READ THOSE. LISTEN TO THOSE. EVERY ONE. And you know what? If you do that and DON'T come to the conclusion that Rush Limbaugh is a vile, despicable, chauvinistic, misogynistic scumbag? Then, sir or madame, YOU are a vile, despicable, chauvinistic, misogynistic scumbag!
I and I will only be revealed as a hypocrite the day I post such vile, misogynistic trash on this blog. (Or chastise people over either foul language or typos.) Well, sir, you will be waiting alongside Adlai Stevenson until hell freezes over, because I am not a misogynist, and I am no hypocrite.
All I can say is that I hope Rush's fourth wife was listening. This is who you married sweetheart. I hope it will be worth it to you. (That's NOT mysoginy, BTW. I don't think she's a bad person. I'm merely pointing out her abysmal taste in men.)
