I knew that one day I would eventually get around to creating a podcast. It’s the first step toward getting my TV show out of the notebook and into something real. But that’ll be done another day. Right now, podcast. Why now? I had a close encounter with a seemingly closed mind on twitter. Someone I had thought was level headed, fair, balanced and all that.
Someone whom I now see as perhaps overly sensitive, quick to judge and possibly paranoid.
I wonder ((?)) what would she think of Alyssa Milano’s “Evolution” video posted on my tumblr at http://dave-lucas.tumblr.com/
iAuthor Tom Hobbs @Kindlemojo has written an e-book he often promotes with the tweet “The Novel that proves: You can’t cure stupid!”
Perhaps that’s applicable here.
It all started with a pop music video.
Below you’ll find the link to my podcast which details the events and my stance.
UPDATE January 6, 2016 ::: Just got this email —> “Since you are on the FREE Buzzsprout plan, episodes older than 90 days will be deleted. The following episodes are scheduled for deletion before the end of your current cycle on February 5th.” So if it is past that date and you are reading this, you’re out of luck. If I re-post the podcast elsewhere, I’ll link to it here.
Are you concerned about “Cultural Appropriation” ?

Think sandwiches! we’re witnessing history, a brave new world of leisure for those of us who struggled so long in menial jobs! We’re heading up, up, up!
Forget everything they’ve told you. There is no reason why you can’t live and lead an absolutlely wonderful life! Now that the $15 minimum wage is nearly upon us, make it a priority to get a job at one of the places offering the new rate. Chances are, once you become known around the facility, you’ll meet a suitable spouse! With both of you raking in $15 an hour, you’ll have it made!
Once established as a couple, find an apartment in your city’s downtown, where you are sure to have amenities like free wifi (they laid the fiber for ‘disadvantaged’ neighborhood folk so they could learn computing and apply for jobs online!) Do not try to buy a house. You’ll get stuck paying taxes. Let the landlord do that. Remember how well the rally for the $15 ‘liveable’ wage worked? Think of rallying for ‘liveable’ rent – force government to act and order those evil landlords to lower rent across the board! And living downtown may even net you free medical care! If you have kids later on, send them to public or subsidized private schools. Never pay for their education yourself!
As a young modern, you won’t need to save for the kids’ college. Your children will go from high school to workforce, and by that time, you’ll join them in the #FightFor30! Yes, you CAN make it in the new America! Never forget: THEY owe US because we struggled for SO LONG!
Well it happened again. Despite government’s best efforts to scare the crap out of everyone just prior to Independence Day in the USA, there was NO terrorist attack. Nothing happened. But we did get to hear all about that “increased chatter” that “authorities” were aware of. And we got glimpse of highly militarized police.
Notice that before real terrorists strike nobody picks up any chatter. No worries about Charlie Hebdo. No warnings to beachgoers vacationing in Tunisia. The police are doing their normal chores of upholding the law by answering 911 calls and writing tickets for various infractions.
If authorities in the USA really thought there was going to be an attack of some sort, they’d be way ready and may not even bother to scare ordinary citizens about it.
Perhaps someone somewhere decided that every now and again we need a little spookin’ … Just enough so we can’t feel 100 percent alright at a fireworks display. Just enough so lots of police can walk around with big menacing weapons for all of us to see and for the TV news to report.
I hope we never again have to bear an attack like 9/11. But if one were to happen, you can safely assume we won’t get any advance notice.

Come to think of it, I blogged about this as well!
