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

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!
