  1. The Lesser Rusty says:

    Good morning Hal and all the good people at the NSA, FBI, DIA, CIA, NRO, NGA, TFI, and as always the BFD… Hashtag Watching US….

    I’ve got a fistful of comments on this Saturday a.m., as I’ve been Up All Night and just ended my day with Al Green’s Ocean Blue played so graciously by Audrey and Melvin Williams on request. BAM! I may become Brother Rusty in honor of the Williams’ kind treatment of my jabbering. They are beautiful!

    Hal – I heard the Randi Rhodes replay this morning (thank you – been awhile since I went to nights) and she was detailing some Pat Robertson nonsense. It occurred to me that Crazy Uncle Pat sounded like Salinas Joe’s older brother! The same kind of hyper-opinionated, disconnected-from-reality, cocksure-judgemental, I-love-Jesus-so-much-I’ll-punch-you-in-the-face blather. Speak to Joe like you would to a Fred Phelps Freak – “Does God hate Fags, Joe?” Get him on his heels every time and then cut him off.

    Hal – I was eager to call Sheriff Candidate Bernal, but was to busy. Here are my four questions for him (or any of the candidates):

    Would you say you believe in the concept of “Good Government”?

    Which popular view do you hold – that government is a vehicle of tyranny, or is an expression of a common agency in solutions to local problems?

    How will you handle the transition to the task of managing and disciplining your current co-workers, the other deputies, when elected sheriff?

    If the Sheriff Department’s budget became an issue in the future and needed to be decreased, would you strive to
    A. lower wages and/or pension obligations?
    B. Cut staffing while maintaining current compensation?
    C. Hold the line at current funding and refuse service cuts?

    Thanks for everything Hal, this has been a great ride! My talk radio journey started with the theft of the 2000 election. First KGO, then MZ’s disastrous handling of his Air America franchise, and then on to your station. The arc of KRXA’s terrestrial life has been important to me – thank you for taking the chance! There’s nothing left out there now, just sports and traffic and music and the fascists…. Back to the egg. I feel lonely, in a way, witbessing the demise of liberal radio across this nation. Maybe like Abbie Hoffman might have felt watching all his fellow leaders go Wall Street and become corporatized. A vacuum of the spirit, one has after the weathering the horror of the Bush years and then the excitement of the Obama years and then the dismal realization that we never had any power at all. Money didn’t like us and froze us out, Power didn’t like us and shut us down… hell – WE didn’t even like us. Bitch, bitch, bitch… You’re too much – you’re not enough…

    BUT -As I said months ago – I love the friends you’ve gathered together on this thin raft. We’ve made pyramids in honor of our escaping!

    Bests and good fortune Hal -Win the Internet!

    See you around, Cheers, The Lesser Rusty and Angus

    p.s. – When you go internet only, you’ll need a producer to get those phone calls set-up with that long delay.
