Hot Topics include a discussion on Attorney General Jeff Sessions, an apparent act of terrorism at a mosque in Minnesota, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg’s political aspirations, the American Psychoanalytical Association reassessment of the Goldwater Rule, and whether someone with genital herpes has a moral or legal responsibility to inform their casual sex partners if they are currently asymptomatic.     This week’s featured song is “Cloud Riders” by Tori Amos.

Addendum from Otieno :  it was  McCleskey vs Kemp, Sandra Day O’Connor not RBG, and the phrase was:

“The Court next states that its unwillingness to regard petitioner’s evidence as sufficient is based in part on the fear that recognition of McCleskey’s claim would open the door to widespread challenges to all aspects of criminal sentencing…Taken on its face, such a statement seems to suggest a fear of too much justice.”

Secretly Timid Quickie : Politicking

In this special quickie Jeremy Prince shares his twit-off with “Top Conservative on Twitter,” Mark R. Mathews. Later, the group talks politics and Danielle drops the Kim Kardashian bomb.

Episode 21 : Road Head

Jill, Jon, Diane and artist Andy Amato (who sits in for the vacationing Paul) snuggled together one rainy Tuesday morning to discuss the news which included: vandalism at a Planned Parenthood in California, a Floridian pastor’s controversial event planned for September 11th, and when multi-tasking can be taken too far. Lighter topics include an oopsie at a German grade school, and Kanye West “directly communicating” with Taylor Swift. There is also a follow up to a story mentioned on an earlier episode.

Episode 17 : Just Enough

To the cast’s amazement, Ms. Diane was on time. This week’s episode is chock full of creamy goodness. The quartet discuss the most dramatic exit ever to grace the interwebs, a criminal who prefers to squirt his DNA on his victims, the worst person in the world, and one politician’s affiliation to a secret society. It should be noted that a cast member may or may not be affiliated with the same secret society.

Today’s featured song is “Miss Marylou Carreau” by Mason Proper

Stand Back. There’s a Hurricane Coming Through

I swing to the left. Totally. I am all for equal rights. I am for gay marriage. I am pro a woman’s right to choose. I was hoping for a public option and I am against revising the 14th amendment.  I am a scary progressive, and in Texas I can feel somewhat alone when I watch the local news.

One of the great things about the interwebs and social networking sites is that you can feel that you are not alone, even if you are. Twitter, just to call one such social networking site out, can make you feel like your voice is twirling around the ether with others. Sometimes your voice sings in harmony…sometimes your voice is flat.

I know many of my peers laugh at the thought of me watching pro wrestling. I can’t help it. I was hooked the first time I saw Lita land a moonsault. I am not nearly a rabid fan as I was years ago, but I still watch TNA and WWE. Well, at least they are on my DVR record list…but with Lita and Christopher Daniels out of the limelight…I watch with less intensity.

Twitter is beautiful, and like many others, I follow my favorite pro wrestlers on it. I mostly follow women’s wrestling ( I know, how gay…shout out to Diva Dirt), but I follow some male wrestlers as well. Besides Christopher Daniels, I follow the Hardy’s, Shannon Moore, and Gregory Helms…aka “The Hurricane.”

Today, at roughly 6 pm central time he posted the following (a retweet)

Wow!! LOL I like!! RT @tmarnette: Who is more dangerous? Osama Bin Laden or Obama Been Lyin’?

Now, I was playing in a poker tournament at the time…but I was somewhat offended by this post. I mean…so you don’t like our Pres…let’s say you didn’t even vote for him…are you still going to laugh at someone contrasting him with a terrorist connected to an act of violence which resulted in the death of nearly 3,000 Americans??

I responded to him with the following :

@HurricaneHelms seriously? That isn’t funny at all.

I then felt it right to react to the source…to perhaps open a dialog. So I responded to @tmarnette with the following sequence:

@tmarnette On one side you have a terrorist linked to an attack killing nearly 3,000 Americans. On the other side you have our President

and because twitter limits you, there was a follow up

@tmarnette while I appreciate your play on words and near rhyme, the answer should be self evident.

Mr. Helms responded to me via direct message with the following :

Then don’t laugh, but don’t bore me with lame replies.

Roar tiger…tone the sass down! I feel sorry that I bored him, but at the same time I would be worried if I laughed at contrasting any American president with a terrorist that is still on the lamb. Different strokes I guess.

Twitter law denies me from replying to him directly, because Mr. Helms does not “follow” me. So I had to make my reply public. I typed :

@HurricaneHelms I didn’t laugh, whatevs, We are all entitled to our own opinion. I hope the rumor of you debuting in TNA soon is true.

And I was being honest. Even if we disagree, he is a talented performer and I miss watching him on T.V.

Since I walked right into a handicap match, Ms. Tina from Tennessee had already typed responses to me. She typed the following :

@jonleehart: Pipe down Peter Pan…it was sort of a rhetorical remark. I didn’t need your witty thoughts on that. But thanks.

The beauty of Twitter and Facebook and other Social Networking sites is that it is public, and since the Hurricane retweeted Ms. Tina’s post I saw it…and could respond. Shortly after her direct response to me she tweeted :

Some people have the intelligence of a street sign…

Now, I don’t know if she was referring to me or not. Just to be safe I tweeted :

@tmarnette “stop” can be very good advice

And it is good advice. She responded with :

So can “find something better to do with your time than respond to my tweets”

I haven’t seen that traffic sign.

I tweeted the following :

I’m as Democratic as they come, but I would never ask the question “who is more dangerous, Osama Bin Laden or George Bush?

And I mean it. I am not a fan of W, but I don’t think he is evil.

Shortly after she tweeted :

Andddddddd…. *block* 🙂

Just to test the waters I tried to follow her…and sure enough, that last tweet was referring to me.

The reason why I am blogging about this is just to share with you what I think is so frustrating about our society today, regardless of your political leanings. We are connected, but we aren’t. We could discuss and converse, but too often we just click “block.”

Episode 16 : Waiting for Diane…

After Diane finally entered the cat studio (after a cat fight between Paul and Jon) the quartet took to the mics and started episode 16. News items included one Republican’s twitter barebacking confessiona store manager using Jesus to dissuade a would-be robber, and controversy over the sale of an old confessional. Later, Jon gets emotional over the proposal on ‘The Bachelorette,’ Jill shocks everyone with her ‘Real World’ knowledge, and the quartet gives advice to a listener who constantly gets cockblocked.

The featured song for today’s episode is “Everyone’s Dead” by The Homophones.

Don’t forget to tune in next Tuesday (August 10th) and watch Jill, Jon, and Diane sit in on “Conversations with Rick Vanderslice” on Rational Broadcasting from 1 -3 ct.

Oh, and Prop 8 was declared unconstitutional! Drinks are on us!!

Episode 13 : Bang Bang!

In today’s episode Jon, Diane, Paul, and Jill discuss a number of different news stories. These stories include the murder/suicide involving the mayor of Coppell,  GPS being used to stalk, irony at a anti-violence barbecue, and a chastity belt made for your man (def NSFW.) Also, Jon calls Jill the “D” word and Paul and Diane compare Facebook friend requests.

The featured song for today’s episode is “Smoke” by Liz Phair.
