Today’s show comes with a TRIGGER WARNING!!!!

https://i1.wp.com/freethoughtblogs.com/ashleymiller/files/2014/01/triggerwarning.png

Be careful, you may not be treated with extra-soft kid gloves by the host of today’s show. Avoid listening to today’s show if you are easily offended by hearing points of view with which you may not agree.  Do not listen if you find the truth to be “discomforting, embarrassing, flirtatious, gender specific, inappropriate, inconsiderate, harassing, intimidating, offensive, ridiculing or a threat to your “self-esteem.””

I spent a lot of time on a single subject today, the current trend, both on-campus and off, to undermine freedom of speech and stifle debate. This is an insidious tactic used by many people to avoid having their opinions and theories be subject to scrutiny. Better to just not allow certain types of speech to be heard in the first place. And, not surprisingly, this most often seems to be coming more and more from the Party of Tolerance™.

It is to laugh.  The so-called open-minded, self-appointed “Speakers of Truth to Power” lately seem to be the first ones calling for the suppression of dissenting speech in nearly every single arena, be it education, politics or science.  Gee, I’m so old that I remember when dissent was patriotic.  Not anymore, I guess.

In between rants, I took time out to speak with Ben Mills of Transform Computer Repair and Dave from Ann’s Deli.

And then closed out with the Drink of the Week with my Personal Mixologist, MJ!

Let me start by welcoming my new producer, Joe Drane. Joe should bring a fresh and interesting perspective to the show and I am looking forward to working with him.

Great show today, starting with my first guest, CT State Senator Joe Markley. Senator Markley and I discuss the current legislative session and some of the recent bills that have been introduced, and take some calls from listeners.

In the second hour, Ben Mills of Transform Technologies joins me in-studio to talk tech, including a discussion of the Heartbleed bug.

And finally, as always, my personal mixologist, MJ Morland, calls in with his Drink of the Week, The Creamsicle.

Fun, busy show today.  Tom Hill III once agains helps out by acting as Steve’s producer.

After talking about a few current topics, Steve welcomes Ben Mills of Transform Technologies once again to discuss IT topics, including some of the smaller, helpful websites that are out there. To find more, you can Google “useful websites.” There’s all kinds of great stuff out there to help solve most any problem.

In the second hour, Dr. John McHugh joins Steve and Tom in-studio to talk podiatry, Obamacare and share a few laughs, especially when Dave Iannone from Ann’s Deli calls in with his JotW.
