A Break from the Fluff, Time to be an Outlaw!

Below is my commentary on an article being circulated through Linkedin, that I found absurd at best. I have to call this what it is. Misogyny with a different color suit and tie. A Letter to Men Who Trust Women How about women who trust men? What I would like to see is a movement to get the responsibility off of the backs of women and let's start talking about reproduction in an inclusive format. So, gentlemen I want to see someone move to the point where you take reproduction and the responsibility therein and do something to stop the rate of abortions. You want to show you believe in equality, then equally take responsibility to prevent unwanted pregnancies. What are men willing to do to help women? Does the vast majority of people understand that birth control for women is actually killing women? That the debate over and acted upon abortions are destroying who women are? Does anyone understand that women remain by and large in poverty because of reproduction and the failure of men to take responsibility? So, the comment Men who trust women is in and of itself "misogynistic!" Words send messages! So women need men to stand up and say "we get to take on even more responsibility to end pregnancies?" Put your money into research and go on the pill, or stop your little swimmers from invading our ova! Show us that you care! (it should be a purple ribbon in honor of the purple pill regime. Nothing like pharmaceuticals to find a way to keep it up, while not finding a way to keep the swimmers out!) So what are you entrusting to women Mr. Newmark?

Noam Chomsky an Interview With Douglas C. Rapier

Today was an extraordinary day at ArtSees Diner Radio. We welcomed Professor Noam Chomsky to the "Diner." Douglas delivered questions with the grace of a Rapier, and Noam Chomsky returned with the smooth knowledgeable delivery of facts, insight and unsurpassed wisdom. Douglas and I stayed on the air for an additional 45 minutes discussing the interview, corporate greed, and other situations that keep us from proclaiming all is well! Noam Chomsky, one of the world's leading intellectuals stops by the "Diner" to talk with guest host Douglas C. Rapier. Noam Chomsky, is a noted philosopher, political critic, activist and long-time professor at MIT. Noam has written extensively on politics, war, corporatism and the mass media. Prof. Chomsky has been described as a prominent cultural figure and prolific "Voice of the People." Topics might include: Snowden, the NSA, Manning, Wiki-leaks. D.C. Rapier is an outspoken relayer of truth, and proclaimer of justice. Along with his very vast musical background, spanning over 45 years, he is a writer, blogger, teacher, and regular contributor to and ArtSees Diner Radio. Douglas is the founder of Blues Society of Taiwan, and involved in the International Blues movement. We were especially delighted to learn that Blog Talk Radio chose this interview to be in a place of prominence respecting the presence of Professor Noam Chomsky on the network. Thank you Blog Talk Radio for that honor.

Rachel Gladstone-Gelman, Activist, Writer, Poet!

I had a delightful time getting to know Rachel. She points out the goings on in our world and incites a desire to stop, look, listen and then respond. How much we overlook in our day to day being. When the rest of us are settling down for a good night's slumber, Rachel has just begun to wonder.

Littles & Lydees, Zoe's Jerk Does a Girl Right!

Being a member of Chicago Food Bloggers has its perks and one that I am so thrilled to share with you is Littles & Lydees absolutely to die for Zoe's Jerk Sauce!
So, the package arrived as promised by Littles & Lydee. Our first question was, "do we go chicken or pork?" We settled on some amazing Amish Chicken breasts. At first Steve said, "I think I will pass on the sauce and just go plain chicken." Then he said, "oh, let me have a little taste." The second his finger touched his lips, his eyes lit up and he said, "Give me that sauce." I heard him sighing and slopping down that chicken and sauce and was cooing like a baby. He could not wait to eat leftovers today for lunch. He made sure I did not get my hands on it. Not only is this sauce the best, the absolute best that I have ever had, the concept behind Littles & Lydees is awesome. They are worth looking into! Congratulations Littles and Lydees, and thank you Chicago Food Bloggers for the hook-up. Listen to Brother Doug's Blues Hour to hear the "SHOUT OUT!"
