17: Gender-Bender Chemicals are Real and Wide Spread – Does This Justify All the Confusion?

This episode I talk about how a large percentage of the country want to split off and become regions “of like-minded people.” Why does that premise sound so familiar …? Hunger Games anyone? Also, did you know there are gender-bending chemicals that make men more feminine and females more aggressive? Do you think that’s contributing to all of this gender dysphoria and confusion? Hhmm…. Book review this week is an ARC – “The Girl in Block 49B” by Dorian Box. Hopefully you have power and can hear this podcast – stay warm!

Podcast: Biden’s Dog Says Joe Will be a Great President

This was published 12-6-20

Sorry, it’s a little blurry. We’re still learning. We are currently using three cameras so that’s why the lighting is off. There is a camera on me, a camera on Kevin and a camera on the both of us. I’m still not sure how I feel about filming our podcast but here we are, in all our flawed glory.

Please be patient as we (and by we I mean Kevin) works through camera issues. He’s getting better and better and he learns a little more each time. He is playing around with transitions and I think he taught himself how to insert pictures/graphs.

Our channel is Right From Us on YouTube. I know at some point he’s going to make an account on Rumble simply because we can’t trust YouTube to eventually find us and censor us as we’re right leaning and obviously critical of radical left wing agendas. I’ll link that account when that happens.

Anyway. I hope you enjoy two mature (ahem) people shoot the breeze about today’s politics. We are working on making our podcast more lighthearted and fun as we don’t want it to just become a bitch fest. And we’re also working really hard to challenge ourselves to think objectively and present ALL sides to an issue, not just OUR side.

Thanks for watching!

Fun Facts About Language #2

In case you didn’t know, I love language. So bare with me as we (I) explore the meaning behind words and phrases …

I’m so glad you asked. Read on …

Ax to grind – The creation of this phrase is attributed to Benjamin Franklin, who used it in an article entitled “Too Much for Your Whistle.” It means a private or selfish motive behind a request or action – something which is not obvious at first glance. The story is that of a man who had an ax which needed to be sharpened. He pretended to young Franklin that he didn’t know how a grindstone worked and asked Franklin to show him. Many turns of the handle later Franklin was weary, the ax was beautifully sharp and the man, having gained his objective, only jeered at Franklin for having been hoodwinked.

As the crow flies – means the shortest distance between two points. The crow flies straight to its destination.

All Greek to me – goes back to Shakespeare. The line was first spoken by Casca, one of the conspirators against Caesar in the first act of Julius Caesar. He was speaking of the comments made by Cicero after Caesar three times refused the crown of emperor. Cicero actually did speak Greek, using that language as a device to make sure that casual passers-by did not understand his remarks. Today the expression, “It’s all Greek to me” simply means that what has been said is beyond the speaker’s understanding.

16: The One Where Trump Was Acquitted – Twice

I don’t know about you but I’m tired of living in historic times. Novel virus, insane lockdowns, “peaceful” riots and a president who is impeached and acquitted – twice. Can we just go back to plain ole boring, please? Book review this week is “The Girl Beneath the Sea” by Andrew Mayne – and I’ve determined that Mayne may be my new favorite author. As usual, I offer stranger than fiction story ideas including soaking a pair of jeans and shaping them so they stand straight in freezing temperatures to preserve a parking space, of all things. Also, I’m ready for warm weather.

Fun Facts About Language #1

In case you didn’t know, I love language. I studied language in college and I suffered through an Aristotle class on the origins of language.

It was a painful class, but I learned a lot about language and the art of communication in that class.

So when Kevin brought home the Morris Dictionary of Word and Phrase Origins, I was pretty excited.

Have you ever wondered where a word or phrase came from? No? Just me? Well …

I’m going to share some of the ones I found interesting with you because, well, I like you … (can you imagine how I would treat you if I didn’t like you! You’re welcome).

I’m so glad you asked. Read on …

American English – Why was English chosen as our language after we broke from England? Why wasn’t it Indian or something else? At first glance these look like frivolous questions, but it may surprise you to know that at the time of the founding of this nation many of its leaders debated very seriously whether or not English should be carried forward as the official language of the United States, as it had been of the colonies. Never was there any serious consideration of an American Indian language as a substitute for English. For one thing, the various Indian dialects were spoken tongues. Not until Sequoyah, in the early nineteenth century, devised an alphabet for the Cherokee language, did an Indian tongue become a written language.

But the bitterness of the colonists against the British was strong enough for many to feel that they should rid themselves of the British tongue, as well as of “the tyrant’s rule.” So some members of the Continental Congress solemnly proposed that English be banished and Hebrew substituted. The fact that few colonists could read or speak Hebrew and that it had not been a living language for centuries sufficed to kill that suggestion. Another proposal was that Greek be adopted as our official language. That idea lasted only long enough for one patriot to remark that “it would be more convenient for us to keep the language as it is and make the English speak Greek.”

What finally happened, of course, was that we continued to speak our own brand of English, which, after a century or so, became known as “American English,” or “The American Language.” The differences between our version and that spoken in the British Isles are great. Even the influences of movies, magazines and television have not removed many of the inconsistencies between the two versions of the language. In the end Britain and American find themselves, in George Bernard Shaw’s paradoxical phrase, “one people divided by a common language.”

A-O.K. was invented by a NASA public relations officer, Colonel “Shorty” Powers. The occasion was our first suborbital flight in May 1961 and the astronaut involved was Alan Shepard. But Powers, relaying to newsmen and the radio audience what he heard from Shepard, mistook a simple, “O.K.” for A-O.K. He fancied the sound of the term so much that he repeated it several times and it caught on with newspaper headline writers, if not with the astronauts themselves. According to our best information, no astronaut ever used the term and it was been notably absent from radio and TV reports of subsequent space flights.

Apple of One’s Eye – The first apple of the eye was the pupil, which in ancient days was thought to be a round object similar to the apple. As recently as Anglo-Saxon times, the same word, aeppel, meant both “eye” and “apple.” It goes without saying that the pupil of one’s eye is very previous indeed – and that’s how the expression the apple of one’s eye came to mean something greatly treasured.

14: Ultimate Revenge: Name a Rat or a Cockroach After an Ex-Lover and Watch it Be Fed to a Larger Animal

This is not a drill: Black Lives Matter organization gets nominated for a Nobel Peace prize, the media claim there’s only one side to a story – their story, Dr. Fauci recommends wearing THREE masks and Senator Hawley stands up for the right – FINALLY. Book review this week is an ARC called “The Last Goodbye” and as always, I offer a few story ideas. And yes, the title of this podcast is a REAL thing.

Podcast: Where Do You Fall on the Oppression Matrix? Marxism For Everyone!

Antiracism comes to the heartland – Marxism is knocking on our back doors and our teachers are being forced to find where they are on the “oppression matrix.” Our world has gone truly mad. Also, why is everyone so obsessed with skin color? What happened to the content of our character? This obsession will not promote unity. This week’s book review is “Trust No One” by Debra Webb. (Which perfectly describes our political environment right now). As always, I end the podcast with some story ideas, along with a prompt for romance, horror and mystery.

Podcast: Trump is Banned from Twitter – Resorts to Smoke Signals

Censorship is a cancer that seems to be spreading every day. I still can’t believe it’s happening and we’re either unaware of it, and/or are too afraid to stop it. I spend a considerable amount of time trying to wrap my head around this issue. This week’s book review is “Flowers for Algernon” by Daniel Keyes and it’s been around for quite some time – I had no idea. I only have a few story ideas for you this week, but they’re good ones.
