The Hal Ginsberg Show September 22 – 26

I’ve been stepping up my blogging lately.  If you have any interest in academic disputes and how costly an ill-considered tweet should be, you may want to check out my take on the decision of the University of Illinois not to offer a permanent position to former Professor Steven Salaita.

I’ll be posting more and more and letting you know on Twitter and at Facebook when I do.

This week on the Hal Ginsberg Show, I’ll be talking about Sunday’s People’s Climate March and Monday’s Flood Wall Street.  I’ll also continue my endless exploration into righty’s mind – specifically a look into why global warming is so destabilizing to righty’s world view and therefore why he cannot acknowledge its reality.

    Hal, I find you very confusing. You say things that appear modern and forward thinking. You address issues in an intelligent way, most of the time. Then you proclaim that you are a Zionist. A Zionist is a fundamentalist that accepts basic tenets of a particular religion. In Judaism one of the basic tenets is the belief in the genesis creation explanation. You can not be a Zionist without belief that the genesis explanation is truth. Creation myth is a very tricky issue.

    How bout captain brown of the. Oklahoma state troopers. He said if women don’t want to be raped by police officers they need to obey traffic laws and avoid being pulled over.
    Maybe our sheriff has some tips on how to deal with
    our growing population of out of control cops. He’s a cop, I’m sure he knows lots of nuts.

  3. Dave says:

    If you don’t know,, a captain in the state police troopers is the local boss. Basically, a branch manager. I would advise avoiding captain brown’s kingdom. Especially if your a women.

  4. Dave says:

    I suppose the subject of god, religion and pre creation is a little over the top for most people, in my cosmic book nothing beats a good “Let there be Light ” conversation.

  5. Dave says:

    All of the supposed Arab allies in fight against Isis are small countries , less than 10 million, except Saudi Arabia ,37 million. Bahrain has 1 million. Egypt , who is not a armed ally has a pop. of 87 million. It’s kind of disingenuous to claim there is a majority of Arab support.

  6. Dav says:

    Omama told us showing Osama bin ladan would some how make things worse.. Exactly how could things be any worse ?

  7. Dav says:

    What’s worse than psycho Arab terrorist or crazed nazis? How bout the Israelis tax man.. The poor Jews have the same problem we have,,, military industral complex.. Evidently, the billions the US gives Israel, including the iron dome isn’t enough. the leaders claim they need nuke submarines. And not just any submarine,, they need the best. Of course. Now the poor tax payer has to not only pay for the thousands of soilders, tanks, missiles , and assorted equipment, now they have to pay for nuke subs. All this on the budget of 8 million people. It appears the eminent threat is a lot closer than people realize.

  8. Dav says:

    Check out isrealis taxes.. The fundamental of a federal value added tax is that the other taxes go away. This is not the case in Israel. And I suspect will be the case if such a tax scheme were envolked here . Israel is grabbing a whopping 18%. At that rate I can understand why someone would think they could afford a nuke submarine..

  9. Dav says:

    Cell phone surveillance ,,, if the terrorist know the govt
    is listenng in , and they must.. It’s on the news everyday. What good can the effort be?. Our govt. response is almost childlike. It’s like their pretending the terrorist don’t know. The terrorist can take the govt. on a goose chase that doesn’t end.

  10. Dav says:

    A new game? The govt. ask citizens to say something if you see something.. A Internet game keeping score on how many times a person can get the police to respond to a “saw something call”. For instance. I just saw a heavily tattooed Latino man dressed in gang attire in a ally behind a store meeting with a man that appeared to be middle eastern..they were both looking into the trunk of a car. The middle eastern man was smoking and appeared nervous. …. The new game could be called “Stump the Chump”

  11. Dav says:

    If you are a Latino child illegally entering the USA, you are given lunch, a dentist, education, a free ride to your relatives home in the USA.—- if you are white and hiking around the border and cross illegally, you are given a $5000 fine. No lunch, no ride home.
    Equality seems to mean different things to different people.

  12. Dave says:

    A federal judge puts the hurt on eric holder last week , demanding fast and furious documents.. This week holder quits and what’s the bet the investigation ends?
    To mitigate the situation the excuse that he needs to quit to earn money is given.. This is one lame excuse.

  13. Dave says:

    On realnews now,, bill black’s article— Eric holders’s record at the justice dept.. I don’t know how Obama keeps a straight face,, this is ridiculous . Bankster fraud is responsible for more property loss than all other property crimes put together. Eric didn’t even try to catch one banker. If Obama is ever honored by a depiction of himself on our currency it should be on a 3 dollar bill
