If you haven't done so yet, I urge you to pay a visit to the American Heathen (r) website and check out the journey of "America's Angriest Atheist" (and ShockNet Radio station manager) as he campaigned and lobbied in Washington DC alongside other broadcasters for Internet radio rate equality.
Yes, ShockNet's fearless leader and foxhole atheist went to Washington and stood alongside big syndication companies and religious broadcasters and small broadcasters and Pandora and they all went up against the great brain drain that is Washington DC itself. And, surprisingly enough, he was able to escape unscathed. Nobody's face melted when self-righteous theists shook hands with an atheist. And even though some of RJ's most despised enemies were in town (including Ted Nugent) for the State of the Union Speech, we didn't need to start a bail fund for him. The only casualties were a hotel pillow, RJ's neurons, and a bottle of aspirin.
But that got me thinking about the discussion topic for this week's show, especially since it WILL be on "President's Day". So here it is...
That's right, our favorite topic: the games politicians play! Budget Sequestration, No Budget No Pay, Fiscal Cliff, Spending Ceiling, Filibusters, Lobbying Reform, the MYTH of equal blame, the MYTH of "unintended consequences", whatever it is that p#sses you off about politics, I WANT YOU TO CALL IN ON IT!
And IS one party to blame more so than another? I want to know what you think about that! Call in on our toll-free number and let us know! I made sure our call-screener Gladys has plenty of smelling salts this time around.
Got you fired up? Good. And I also got some really positive feedback about our "sponsored products", so we'll probably have a few more as well. Oh, and will the "new" Mister Anonymous be back? You'll just have to tune in to find out!
Join me LIVE on Monday night (2/18) at 8pm ET, 7pm CT, for another week of commentary that is social, political, and in-your-face!
It's BRUTALLY HONEST - LIVE! on ShockNet Radio and simulcast on iTunes.
