Fishie Hosts Saturday Night Cigar Lounge
I had a great time filling in for Taylor on Saturday Night Cigar Lounge on Vigilant Liberty Radio this week! Special thanks to Dustin Hoyt for producing and both Dustin and JD Bryden for sitting in with me and playing along for the entire show – I had a blast, guys! If you missed it, you can listen HERE.
Here’s a hypothetical situation for you: Say there’s a kid who defends his mother’s point of view at school. And let’s say that that point of view was that guns weren’t bad, and in fact, could save lives in certain situations. And finally, say that because of his defense of that point of view, and the mere hint that his mom might own an unregistered gun, he was taken aside, interrogated by police, and then sent to Child Protective Services while his house was searched for what the school reported as a “Possible Unregistered Firearm,” which the police eventually found, and subsequently arrested his mother for possessing.
When Rights Collide
How would you like the courts/government taking sides and dictating what you can say, do or who you associate with? How would you like to have one group have their rights valued more than yours? We have the right to NOT be discriminated against based on age, national or ethnic origin, color, sex, religion, mental or physical disability or sexual orientation. But what do we do when one group’s rights are being attacked by another group? What are the courts/tribunals, governments and societies responsibilities in this matter?
Basics of Media Bias
I don’t remember much about my first appearance on television. I was down somewhere near the Medical Center about ten years ago, pretty much the only counter-protester to a couple of dozen protesters, and I can’t even remember what the issue was that they were protesting. A news crew covering the protest approached me and asked me why I was there across the street. Of the five minutes or so that I spent talking to them, maybe ten seconds aired that night.
