While still celebrating DOMA's end, I'll discuss Julia Serano's speech at Trans Pride in Seattle and will dive into talking about masturbation! I will not be discussing techniques of masturbation, so please do not worry this will be an explicit show. It is not. But I am promoting masturbation as a healthy activity.
Here are the links I discuss in the show:
A History of Marriage by Elizabeth Abbott
Julia Serano and her book Whipping GIrl
I will post more links after the show!
Tonight on Liberal Dan Radio:
After reviewing the headlines and going over some of the silliness that happened in Jefferson Parish last Saturday when it came to tolls and taxes, Liberal Dan Radio will actually start talking about the oral argumetns made in the Supreme Court about DOMA.
That, plus the tweet of the week and words of redneck wisdom, on Liberal Dan Radio: Talk from the left, that's right.
Talk about this show afterwards here:
GOP House Spkr John Boehner capitulated this morning as he announced his resignation as House Spkr, effective Oct 30th. The "Boner" man finally met reality and reality won! He had the balls to declare in his afternoon press conference that, of course, he would have survived a no-confidence vote. My ass!
He misses the point. It takes 218 votes in the lower house of the U.S. Congress to (1) pass a bill or (2) defeat a bill. John Boehner had long since lost control of the GOP House Majority (218) + 30-40 hard core ultra-conservative GOP members. At any given time 40-50 GOP House Conserv. could be assembled to completely stymie any legislation proposed by the House GOP Leadership! It was the case this time around. Conservatives had threatened to shut down the government unless Planned Parenthood was defunded.
Boehner and his top lieutenants simply did not have the stomach for another shutdown. Boehner made that known and even had a caucus this morning with obstinate GOP Conservatives, just a day after greeting Pope Francis in Washington, D.C. It was at this caucus that it became clear to Mr. "Tan-Man" that this unreachable segment of the GOP House membership would hold steady and go ahead and do all it could to bring about a government shutdown.
Knowing this and feeding off of his close pass w/the "Sacred" (i.e., Pope Francis) the Boehner man decided to call it quits to avoid a no-win outcome and the inevitable clusterfuck it would result in if he remained as House Speaker while his GOP contingent orchestrated yet another government shutdown.
Boehner's House Speakership was the most obstreperous & unproductive in U.S. history - he lost on Obamacare, DOMA, Gay Marriage, Climate Change, the Iranian nuclear deal & the Keystone Pipeline & the GOP stands to lose on Immigration reform. Still, Boehner was a great fundraiser and he cut quite a figure
