Monday, February 23rd, Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson allowed a new law to block future anti-discrimination laws (to go into effect 90 days after the legislative session ends later this summer). While the premise of the new law known as SB 202 appears reasonable, in actuality this law allows legal discrimination for all non-protected classes.
In this episode, we hear from three Arkansas residents. Meet once again Scott Wyant, Founder of Straight Talk Arkansas, a website dedicated to Living liberally in the Mid-South.
We'll also hear from Cathey Shoshone and Christina Harrison. Cathey is the Co-Chair and Christina is the Founder of Arkansans For Equality.
Christina Harrison was born and raised in Arkansas. She founded Arkansans for Equality in 2011. As an ally, she had become frustrated with the bigotry she came across towards our fellow Arkansans in the LGBTQ community and wanted to do something to help. She began a ballot initiative to repeal Amendment 83 soon after. Christina is a combat veteran in the Army National Guard, and has just recently returned from a tour in Afghanistan.
Cathey Shoshone, also an ally, was born in Arkansas but has lived in several states around the South. She lives in Arkansas currently, She "liked" the Arkansan for Equality facebook page and volunteered to collect signatures for the ballot initiative. The ballot initiative became obsolete when Cheryl Maples and Jack Wagoner won their case in Judge Piazza's courtroom legalizing same-sex marriage. A federal case has also overthrown Amendment 83 to the Arkansas State Constitution. This decision has been stayed pending an appeal hearing.

February is supposed to be the month of love and romance. The year is 2015 and in January and February the lives of Trans Woman have not matter because 6 have already been killed. There is no national or local uproar for justice for the families, friends or the victims. There are no marches scheduled through social media with expecting crowds of 1000 or more expressing outrage. There are however organizations that are raising theirs voices and hoping you join them as this is a trend that MUST STOP NOW. Joining co-host Ina, Michelle and Terry Wednesday night, February 25th will be Monica Roberts, aka the TransGriot, is a native Houstonian and a trailblazing award winning trans community leader. She has lobbied since 1998 for trans human rights protections at the federal, state and local levels in Kentucky and Texas. January 2006 she founded the award winning blog TransGriot. We will talk about why the deaths of 6 transgender women have had little mainstream media attention, no community leadership out cry, nothing. New Orleans LGBT youth of color activist group, The BreakOUT stated in the Feb 10th news story, "The silence and lack of action from media on behalf of the Black transgender community sends a strong message that Black Trans Lives, in fact, do not matter." At last count 5 black transgender women and 1 Latina transgender woman have lost their lives. Where are the black and latina leaders that scream when a black or latina man or woman are killed for no reason? When does a human life not matter and who determines that?
We're back! And by "we" I actually mean "we" this time and not just speaking of myself in some sort of made-up collective effort as I have been known to do. No, "we"! That's right, yours truly has found a pertner in crime. The yang for his ying, the jelly for his peanut butter....shit, that all sounds a little gay, don't it? Ladies and gents, may I present to you, the Adamizer! He's a fellow conspiracy analyst and also hails here in FEMA Region 1 but to be perfectly honest, that's all we're allowed to say other than he'll be broadcasting to us from an undsiclosed location in the White Mountains,
Join the Adamizer and I as we begin this new chapter in the albeit brief but very sordid and murky but occassionaly brilliant history that is, the Front Row At The Freak Show. Tonight, we'll mostly be dipping our proverbial beaks in the freaky waters, getting to know each other a little bit and of course, espousing our views on probably a little bit of everything as we see it in the Front Row. Our main focus tonight will be sort of a "State of the Freak Show" address as we each see it and provide the jumping off point to wherever the hell it is where going with this.
Naturally, along the way we'll try to spice it up and takes some entertainement breaks. Comedy this evening will be provide by the one and only, Mr. George Carlin while the muisc portion is still yet, TBD but you can bet your boots it's gonna be something good. Actually, I have something in mind but want to surprise the Adamizer so, can't write it down here. Let's just say you can probably bank on a little, Man in Black.
OK you freaks! Wednesday 2/25 8:30, be there! FYI: Our regular show will resume on Mondays at that time.

Our guest will be Janine Blaeloch, Founder & Director of Western Lands Project, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that fights public land privatization in order to protect the environment and the public interest. Their mission is to scrutinize public land trades, sales, giveaways, and any project that would cede public land. Their goal is to keep public land public.
Janine will talk about the destructive utility-scale solar plants planned on 19 million acres of public lands open to industrial solar applications, instead of alternatives that would focus solar development on degraded lands and in the already-built environment.
Each year, approximately 200 land deals are proposed by the Bureau of Land Management and Forest Service, in addition to those introduced by legislation. The BLM & the Forest Service do exchanges of land with private parties, including timber companies, mining corporations, ranchers, and developers
While the two sides must get lands of equal market value, and the exchange must create a net benefit for the public, the appraisal process can be corrupted and the public interest is often ignored. For years, the Forest Service was trading lushly forested lands to timber companies in exchange for the cut-over, damaged land the companies had already exploited.
And in the U.S. Congress, members wheel, deal, carve up, and give away public lands with no regulations to hinder them. Frequently, the bottom line is the direct, pragmatic opportunity to reward friends or curry political favor through the gift of public land.
