45 days till midterm elections
with no new policies to improve the lives of Americans, the republicans run on fear and hate. they want to abolish medicare and social security for the working class. abbott cries about border crossings while offers no functioning program or policy to make it better.  
September 24, 2022
what direction are we going?
We are seeing the clearest pictures of galaxies outside of ours while in our own Milky Way we're seeing freedoms and choices disappear with each new ruling. it's a crazy time to be alive, but my whole existence has been one once in a lifetime experience after another

Dark days of America to come
In this episode I talk about my feeling on the current climate here in America and what comes next. spoiler alert, I don't know but I don't think it's good. 
July 04, 2022
95: f@ck Facebook
Facebook used to be a place to see your friends and family updates, it's become a treasure chest of anything but. 
February 12, 2022
94: she found her wig behind the couch
what's the state of affairs in texas, it's cold and damp and abbott is shitting himself, fearing the power stays on. rants about color contacts and natural eye color. addictions are a mother fucker, and more.
January 16, 2022
93: what does freedom mean?
what is the state of America? will we continue to have open and free elections or will the Republican Party, controlled by cooperate interests, finally win? As a nation we are so quick to determine the fall of democratic governments all of the world, but when it comes to our own, we are paralyzed. we have a two system party where the other believes in conspiracies. a country can't survive if half the nation thinks jfk jr is still alive. as if the most liberal democrat to hold office would have any affiliation with these folks. they literally tried to turn democracy pass tense.  
January 09, 2022
92: what does the future hold?
what does the future hold for us? we don't know till it happens. we can make sense of it once it's happened. in this episode I talk about the past couple years, the challenges and what it takes to make a change. 
January 03, 2022
91: dark days of texas
History doesn't forget. people forget, which is why we leave records. we have books, audio, video. what's happening in texas is what happened in failed states throughout history. the people in charge see the end times and do everything they can to hold on to power. it's always a sad and fleeting way to exit, but time and time again, the only way the powerful know. it never works. American history shows the power of people. when people rise up things change. half of this country is sleeping and we might finally bend the curve and end up in some dystopian form of governance. 
November 07, 2021
90: halloween edition
in this episode I give you a couple ideas on what to do this halloween weekend. I talk about the gay community and the importance of it. Why hating the 'gay scene' is just internalized homophobia. if texas legislation comes for us next, and they will,  I have a few ideas how to fight. as a community we've come so far so fast, we will not go backwards. not even in this state. 
October 28, 2021
89: Abbotts up to his bullshit again
Women across Texas woke up in a paradox of what the American Constitution stands for and what a handful of old white men want. Every women you know now has less rights than you. They no longer have control over their body, or as the right wing in this country calls it, a vessel. If this law isn't struck down, we are on a dark path to absolute rule.
September 04, 2021
88: Pride edition
happy pride y'all. lets see what we can get out of this capitalist economy while its offering best wishes, by July, they won't give a fuck about us. buy your rainbow shit from local gays. do not support these companies. we are not here for them.  we are also not here for the texas government, they taking back rights. it's not going to happen in this state. we fight. democrats are moving here everyday. you should hashtag #fuckabbott if you feel your rights are being taken away.   
June 04, 2021
87: Texas Republic of Dystopia
this week Paul talks about a recent poll from the texas tribune. how texas is much more progressive than its law makers. 
May 22, 2021
86: What will Fashion look like coming out of the Pandemic
Life spent in sweats and leggings is no life at all. What will become of fashion after the covid weight and lack of human influence? It's time to move past fast fashion and find a style that works for you. We've all outgrown the magazines and intsa influencers telling us what would look good on us. It's time to move on from fashion and find the style that lives inside you. 
April 29, 2021
85: dallas pride is back
beto is running, Beto isn't running? what's going on dallas pride is back, in person texas hates all you folks voting, so they'll stop you. so democratic.

Texas summer is coming.  did Ted Cruz grow a conscious? spoiler, he did not.  vaccines and get togethers, the future is now. 
March 29, 2021
83: the locals are pissing off the Abbott Monarchy
One year into this pandemic - are we the same people we were? Meghan and Harry - who's gonna have the last laugh, the monarchy or the exiles? the monarchy has a 1200 year history, little harry's only been around a couple decades. you decide.  Abbott Monarchy - he would love to think he has that type of authority. RIP Texas, Ann Richards needs to put this tool back in the shed. Imagine what it would have been like during the deep freeze if we had her at the helm. I didn't even live in Texas then but I know all about her. She'd never put texans in harms way the way this man-child does.  We're getting closer to the end of the tunnel. we are near the end of the worst year in generations.     
March 13, 2021
82: Why do we fall apart?
Texas fell apart with some cold weather Abbott continues to embarrass the people of Texas 
March 06, 2021
81: Texas froze over
how did Texas freeze over? how did Teddy Cruz run off to Mexico as soon as he felt. chill? we need answers, and this podcast has none, but I have plenty of hate for him and abbott, so if you like that kind of stuff I'm here for you.
February 21, 2021
80: Free Britney
Britney was in court this week about her conservatorship. things may finally be moving in the right direction. Framing Britney debuted on Hulu last Friday and it has a bit of new information we didn't know, ie-Justin is a pos. A little history lesson on the media in the late 90's early aughts, they were just trying to make a buck at any cost. And they hurt many on the way.  ps -  Happy V-day boys and girls!!
February 14, 2021
79: A little Texas history
Texas was it's own thing, for a minute, made a flag, made a pledge, then fucked up. asked big daddy for help. now we part of the usa. big daddy said you can't leave, baby gurl. so Texas said we'll be the unbaptized child   greg abbott, teddy cruz - why these people still running the government?  I bought a new iPhone - didn't even get to mention it in my haste for Texan politicians
February 07, 2021
78: new dog, old tricks

December 06, 2020

Who's out living their best holiday lives and who's in staying safe? food banks, covid, so much to be thankful for this year, am I right!?
November 26, 2020
71: Hope has arrived
A new President and a new day for America. President-elect Joe Biden will take the reins and lead us out of this tumultuous period of American life. I may have bought a thing.  There is lots of noise happening in government, and it's going to be more ramped up till the Georgia election in January but stay focused, we will get through this.  A little story of my personal relationship to Biden's hometown of Scranton
November 15, 2020
70: Chaos reigns
Three days after Halloween we can end the horror we have been living through these past four years.  Instead of candy this Halloween, the Administration is handing out the ronas.
October 10, 2020
69: the afterglow of what could come thrills me
it's time to talk about the purple elephant wearing his tennis shoes, who parades around with nothing but those shoes, and cares little for the visual you'll receive.  the president of America was diagnosed with the same virus he played down for all the months, the same virus that Americans were dying from in the thousands every day.  in his words, it hardly affects anyone, and it is what it is.  lets focus on some self care during this dumpster fire of an administration. what ever it is that you love, do it. lets move past this failure of a man and a presidency and move this country to a place of balance.
October 03, 2020
68: what has he done for you lately?

July 19, 2020
62: American Dystopia
Texas is a hotbed so yes karen, even you need to wear a mask, young folks are spreading the virus, says the governor that did nothing to stop the raging spread, deaths are piling up around you but go to the gym and work out, please.
July 11, 2020
61: Steady the flag (Pride Edition)
lets look at the roots of pride and get back to what it actually means (hint, it's not a cooperate float in a parade) BLM has shown white America that protests can change policy. as queer people we already knew this, but it has been forgotten. the last 50 years homosexual went from being an illness to the supreme court allowing same sex couples to marry. if anyone can carry a message of change it is us. there are communities out there that aren't as loud and don't get on the news. it's time to take our gay activism and start making this place better for everyone.
June 27, 2020
60: hope on hope
when everything seems dismal, what do you do? asking for a friend. juneteenth, Abbott, and everything that's wrong with today.  wear a mask

Why are white cops killing our black neighbors? Ftw failed. the killer cop lawyered up and quit before they fired him and is silent now. no one is above the law, we need justice. we need to feel safe again. we need police to fall back and protect us, not kill us.

April 27, 2019
23: I can smell spring in the air
Texas picks and chooses what history it likes to keep around, Mardi Gras is one they keep. Hints of religion and racism, it's no wonder it's lasted so long in this country. Our history is littered with racism, how do we move forward?

Has the drunken clam moved to dallas? for this month it has, if you haven't been yet you gotta hurry up, it's at the whippersanpper at 1806 McMillan Ave. it'll be there till 2 February. Facebook probably reads your text messages and follows you on all online activity. is it worth having?

January 03, 2019
15: manson has a song called f@ck frankie, my version is about teddy cruz
it's voting season and i'm all about shit talking teddy cruz. GOP has ballooned the national debt by giving tax breaks to the rich and now they are hunting for your social security and medicare. They also don't want you to have health care. they'd rather you go bankrupt and loose your house. Vote Blue, straight ticket. Whether you're in Texas or an outside listener, the world is watching us right now, they are scared.
