Moranona Monday, Head-ON With Robyn Kincaid, 12 April 2021

I guess we’re gonna be awhile clearing the MAGATs from our national consciousness. Insurrectionist’s lawyer complains his client is being held along with people charged with “inner city crimes.” Been awhile since we heard from uber MAGAT and world class moran Uncle Ted Nuge. Not long enough. Another school shooting. God amighty. Another another shooting. Godamighty.

Prayerona Meetin’ Wednesday, Head-ON With Robyn Kincaid, 7 April 2021

The NRA bankruptcy trial just keeps getting better! A single word during testimony confirmed what we’ve been talking about now for years. Marsha “Goodness!” Blackburn is sick of all those Elders needing Care! Our “partners in peace” move to scuttle talks designed to stave off a nuclear apocalypse. What a difference an election makes! Biden DoJ, under Merrick Garland moves to affirm LGBTQ+ rights. Too, also: ZOMBIES!

Titanicorona Tuesday, Head-ON With Robyn Kincaid, 6 April 2021

Moscow Mitch has a sad, decries “woke mob,” punishing companies for not being as racist as he, Moscow Mitch, wants them to be; conveniently forgets he used to like it when the “Free Market” did as it wished. And too: isn’t it interesting that the MAGATs oppose “wokeness,” when it’s a term to describe enlightenment? Oops. Capitol mob turns out to have been (gasp) white and make and racist af and came from little burgs where they believed their white way of life was “under attack.” Speaking of attacks, a new attack on trans kids arises in North Carolinastan, this time with a new wrinkle. And finally, a stone-cold (literally!) giggle from Talibama. 

Thorona-in-the-Side Thursday, Head-ON With Robyn Kincaid, 1 April 2021

No April Fools here. Too much too bizarre reality to risk mixing them up. Good vaccine news and a nagging question answered. The Saga of Gaetz getz weirder. Who knew and when did they know it? Who were the GOP creeps to whom he showed nude photos of young women and said nothing? What did his staff know? Hula hoops? Warm weather approaches. Careful who you listen to for sunscreen advice. Ten hours post-second vaccine and all is well. Knock wood or something.

Titanicorona Tuesday, Head-ON With Robyn Kincaid, 30 March 2021

In which we peek inside the DJ mind. In which we note (with perfectly honest, genuine pleasure) the transit into Hell of G. Gordon Liddy. In which we ponder why anyone would be investigated by the FBI for “having sex,” as cartoon bubble-head Matt Gaetz claims (Hint: Sex Trafficking ain’t “having sex”). In which Rand Paul gets taken to school for lying about, because of course, science. In which a macho Georgia State Trooper explains the bowel-watering fear he felt watching a little black lady knock politely on a door.

Dr Bill Obrien’s Virtual Civics, Tuesday, 30 March 2021

We welcome our special guest, Dr. Kevin Shanley, and appreciate the discussion on China and U.S. relations. Where does China stand on Taiwan? And in the event of war, where would we stand? We also had book recommendations by author and historian, Margaret MacMillian, who is a professor at the University of Toronto and an expert in history and international relations.  This is definitely one conversation not to be missed!  

Dr. Bill Obrien’s Virtual Civics, Monday, March 29, 2021

Today’s program covered issues with the Filibuster, unity among the parties that’s necessary but non-existent, and what we might expect along the lines of voting regulations that impede rather than encourage voter turn-out. We have an opportunity to change the direction we’re heading if we just work together. Please join us tomorrow for another discussion with Dr. Kevin Shanley on the global relationship with China and where we stand among it all.

Thank you for your continuing support of the Virtual Center!
