Love Night:
By Terri

Valentine's Day with all it's fragrant flowers, calorie dripping candy and little stuffed "I Love You Bears" can't begin to express the love this liberal, tree hugging, over sexed, peace not war gal has for The Rev.

This is how I envision a Neocon Valentine: Con man rushes out at the last moment to get his woman a diamond bracelet, a new fur coat and a dinner reservation at an elegant restaurant. First he stops off a local restroom to tap dance for pleasure with the guy in the next stall.
::tap::tap::tap:: Fifteen minutes later he rushes home to prove to the little woman that he's a real man. Dumb bitch neocon woman ooh and ahhs at his thoughtfulness and drops her chastity belt for a painful duty to her man. Let's not forget how he prays during his climax... Jeeezus.. oh Jeeezus... as his thoughts wander back to the bathroom stall.

The flowers will wilt, the candy will be devoured and the I love you bear will collect dust but the neocon man will always drag his penis back to the bathroom stall for another ::tap:;tap: tap:: session.. Ahh Love in grand for the neocon man.

Rev. Bookburn - live broadcasting from the End-Zone

next show:

Love Night 2008


Showtime: Sunday, February 10, 9:00 to 11pm, Eastern time USA @

RADIOVOLTA.ORG


Love Night 2008 will provide a necessary alternative to the offerings of the corporate entertainment industry for 'Valentine's Day.' In light of the scandals of moralizing hypocrites who cannot admit they are sexual beings, as they go through life with a schizophrenic love/ hate relationship with their own sexuality... we cannot resist all of the radio material they so generously provide us. This is going to be one Love Night that will never be forgotten!


Flash Foreward:


If Bush and gang haven't destroyed the planet by August, we'll plan a very special 40th anniversary celebration of the Yippie! Festival of Life, that was in Chicago during the Democratic Convention. The historic outcome was even identified by the official Walker Report as a 'police riot.' That was followed by the notorious Chicago 7 trial.


We are aware of the tech problems with the Immaculate Climax show. Gawd spoke in a voice heard by some Bookburners that He thought the show and Volta's technology were going too smoothly. So He decided that it would be fun to fuck with everyones' heads and create tech problems during the killer playlist of songs and comedy. But since the Reverend was conceived through the Holy Spirt, it was decided that some of the show could be salvaged. At this time, we are still figuring out if some of the show can be saved for Radio4All.


Jesus spammers who were freaking out about the Immaculate Climax show: our tech problems were proof that you were right all along. Therefore, we are all converting and shall be in your churches. Since it is Erotic SuperBowl weekend, we shall be especially horny. We think you'll like our outfits. Like Linda Lovelace, I'm now ready to change my image and declare that I was forced into all this silliness from the beginning and didn't mean any of it. We shall think of special ways to thank you.


We are unable to schedule the traditional An Erotic Interpretation of the SuperBowl show this year. For those who have difficulty getting through such an event without the Reverend's unique form of broadcasting, the 2005 SuperBowl show remains in the Audio Archives.

Speaking of holidays, Love Night will also provide special acknowlegement of Hash Wednesday. After Love Night, we'll need to schedule spontaneously as some temporary projects keep the Reverend tied up. We'll be announcing the forthcoming shows on this site. We are already accumulating goodies for future shows. Dr. Greed has also promised to introduce his henchperson Igor-in-drag.


Richard Mellonfondling Skank was a great guest on the Immaculate Climax show. He eventually came clean about his agenda. It was also fun to tear into him during the Asshole of the Week presentation.


Anti-choice lie of the month (they are still heavily spamming the Reverend): "Hitler was pro-choice." The truth was actually the opposite... Hitler was totally anti-choice, preached 'morality' and 'family-values,' presented 'motherhood awards,' and announced a program of fatherland security. In other words, he was nearly identical to the anti-choice, moral crusaders of todays Republican Party and 'pro-life' movements. The lies sent by 'Covenant News' also contained an incredible amount of bullshit regarding the late Margaret Sanger.


Sanger came from a strong union/ labor/ social justice background and was inspired by the reproductive freedom speeches of Emma Goldman. The backlash against both was perpetrated by the racists, and anti-women conservatives who resembled those who slander Sanger today.


On the Love Night 2008 show, we will also review the origins of the modern 'religious right.' Before they discovered the political mileage and fund-raising potential of the abortion and gay issues, they were experiencing challenges to their tax-exempt and non-profit status. Under then-President Carter, some evangelical kingpins, most notably Bob Jones University, vowed a holy war fight if their racist policies were challenged. The challenge to them effectively communicated that if they were pushing racism, then they were not being charitable. They vowed to organize evangelicals into an effective voting block and organizing network to unseat Carter and promote their agenda. The rest is theocratic history.


Thanks to the following for advance assistance for the Love Night 2008 show: Pastor Rex Cat, Mr. Z, Hippie John, Heidee Helper, Ms. Terri, Lord Cheezus, Pastor Whoremaster, John the Craptist.

The Governor is proposing a 10% cut across the board for social services. Loni Hancock is fighting to stop the cuts, but her office said that it is not looking good. They are urging everyone to call the governor's office, and anyone who lives in a district that has a republican state senator should also call that senator's office. They need all the democrats and some of the republican state senatorsand assembly people to vote against the proposed cuts in order to stop them. Hancock's office also said that they are urging people to start talking to city and county officials about getting funding to cover the shortfall should the budget cuts succeed.

Tom Waits Meets Super-Joel

by Paul Krassner

A recent obituary in the *Los Angeles Times* began: “Bernie Boston, the photojournalist who captured the iconic image of a young Vietnam War protester placing a flower in the barrel of a rifle held by a National Guardsman died...The photo known as ‘Flower Power’ became Boston’s signature image and earned him acclaim in the world of photojournalism. Taken during an antiwar march on the Pentagon on Oct. 22, 1967, the photo was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize.”

The protester, not identified, was Joel Tornabene. In my autobiography--*Confessions of a Raving, Unconfined Nut: Misadventures in the Counterculture,* published by Simon & Schuster in 1993--I described him as “an unheralded Yippie organizer known as Super-Joel. His grandfather was Mafia boss Sam Giancana, but Super-Joel had dropped out of the family business. Instead, he let his hair grow long and distributed LSD. The intelligence division of the Chicago Police Department warned Giancana that Super-Joel shouldn’t hang around with me. The cops were telling the *Mafia* that *I* was a bad influence. It could’ve been worse. The FBI planned to ‘neutralize’ Dick Gregory by alerting the Mafia to his verbal attacks on the crime syndicate.”

Super-Joel once told me, “If it wasn’t for acid, I with my Sicilian ancestry and you with your Jewish ancestry, we would never have become such close friends.” And he kissed me on the forehead. But that was okay. It meant love now, not murder.

Super-Joel was arrested during the 1968 Democratic convention. He yelled and gave the cops the finger through the caged door at the back of the paddy wagon. He got arrested three times that week. He was just another anonymous Yippie. FBI files indicated that the government wanted to indict twenty individuals for conspiracy to cross state lines for the purpose of inciting a riot at the convention, but the grand jury woudn’t go along with such a wholesale indictment.

I wrote in my memoir that “Super-Joel’s indictment was dropped when an attorney for...Sam Giancana, managed to persuade them that not only did Super-Joel come from ‘a socially prominent family’ in Chicago, but also that he was mentally incompetent to stand trial.” However, in 2006, I learned that his sister, Fran, had said, “Our grandfathers were a Sicilian doctor and a Norwegian Irish carpenter. I can’t imagine how anyone would actually believe that Giancana relationship.”

I contacted her immediately, apologizing “for passing on false information,” adding that “Although I included that story in my autobiography, recently I’ve had the rights reverted back to me, and I plan to have it re-published in an updated edition, so I will certainly include a postscript revealing that hoax.”

She replied, “I think that Joel must have had quite a good time with the ‘Giancana connection hoax.’  I was first made aware of this story after his death in Mexico in 1993.  His attorney, Dennis Roberts, came to Chicago to meet with my mother and our family. He seemed to be quite surprised to see a simple middle-class family home in Franklin Park, rather than a River Forest Mafia compound.  I wasn’t aware of the extent of this story until Prairie Prince, who I know Joel was close to for years, asked me a few years ago which side of the family was Giancana.  Since then, I’ve seen your tale regarding his being moved to the unindicted co-conspirator list due to the ‘grandfather connection.’”

“I’m embarrassed to admit that I believed it,” I confessed, “simply because Joel was extremely convincing when he told me--so I'm a professional prankster who got pranked himself--but I really had no way of double-checking his personalized put-on.”

And I’m not the only one who’s been fooled like that. Another sister, Felicia, has located an interview in which Tom Waits is asked who Joel is.

Q. “Who's Joel Tornabene?”
A. “He's in the concrete biz. Mob guy. He was the grandson of Sam Giancana from Chicago. He did some yard work for me, and I hung out with him most of the time. He died in Mexico about five years ago. He was a good friend of [producer/composer] Hal Wilner, and he was a good guy. He had an errant--I don’t know how to put this--he used to go around, and when he saw something he liked in somebody’s yard, he would go back that night with a shovel, dig it up and plant it in your yard. We used to get a kick out of that. So I stopped saying, ‘I really like that rosebush, I really like that banana tree, I really like that palm.’ Because I knew what it meant. He came over once with twelve chickens as a gift. My wife said, ‘Joel, don’t even turn the car off. Turn that car around and take those chickens back where you found them.’ He was a good friend, one of the wildest guys I’ve ever known.”

Waits has written a song--“How's It Gonna End,” on his album *Real Gone*--that includes this lyric: “Joel Tornabene lies broken on the wheel....”

And the ten-year-old son of Joel’s cousin recently used Joel as a topic for a history project--he centered it on the ’68 convention--titled “Someone Who Took a Stand.”



more NOW funnies:

"Ultimate Betrayal?" NOW-NY Promotes Sexist Stereotypes

by Joshua Holland

A little biological determinism from the professed feminist org.

I suppose we should be proud to be lumped together with Teddy Kennedy and Democracy for America, but there's little reason to be joyful about the ugly identity politics that have marked this primary season.

If you haven't yet seen it, this is the response -- "unhinged" is not an inappropriate adjective to use in this case -- to Ted Kennedy's endorsement of Barack Obama by the New York chapter of the National Organization of Women. This is not a hoax -- its authenticity was confirmed by NOW-NY president Marcia Pappas, who may have been its author. I've added a few comments …


Women have just experienced the ultimate betrayal. Senator Kennedy's endorsement of Hillary Clinton's opponent in the Democratic presidential primary campaign has really hit women hard.


Consider how arrogant an organization has to be to claim to speak for 51 percent of the country like this. My question for NOW-NY is simple: how is Kennedy's endorsement a betrayal of "women" when 54 percent of women in South Carolina voted for Obama -- he won among white women as well as black -- as did 35 percent of women in Iowa, 34 percent in New Hampshire and 38 percent in Nevada?

The answer is simple: it isn't. NOW-NY has a preferred candidate in Hillary Clinton, as they have every right to do, and instead of honestly endorsing that candidate -- and perhaps making a substantive argument about why women should support Clinton -- they claim to speak on behalf of all "women" as if they're biological automatons genetically pre-programmed to support a female candidate regardless of whether they prefer that candidate's policies.



Women have forgiven Kennedy, stuck up for him, stood by him, hushed the fact that he was late in his support of Title IX, the ERA, and the Family and Medical Leave Act to name a few. Women have buried their anger that his support for the compromises in No Child Left Behind and the Medicare bogus drug benefit brought us the passage of these flawed bills. We have thanked him for his ardent support of many civil rights bills, BUT women are always waiting in the wings.


Credit where it's due: reading that passage, it sure feels like they wanted to throw a reference to Chappaquiddick in there, but perhaps realizing that it's a singular obsession of the Limbaugh Right, thought better of it. Would that they'd showed a little more restraint in the rest of this screed.


And now the greatest betrayal! We are repaid with his abandonment! He's picked the new guy over us. He's joined the list of progressive white men who can't or won't handle the prospect of a woman president who is Hillary Clinton (they will of course say they support a woman president, just not "this" one).


As a progressive white man, I'll speak only for myself here. I think the best argument for Clinton is that she's a woman and it would be nice for us to catch up to Pakistan and break our current streak of 43 male presidents. I harbor no hatred of Hillary Clinton -- while not great, she hasn't been a bad Senator in the larger scheme of things -- but I would never dream of supporting her, and there are several reasons for that. Primary among them is her take on foreign policy. Clinton's eaten every bit of Iran propaganda the administration has run up the flag pole, has suggested -- like Shrub in 2004 -- that if her opponent wins the election Al Qaeda might hit us again, and while she talks publicly about ending the occupation of Iraq, I'm not able to get past this story [from AfterDowningStreet.Org], via David Swanson:


On Monday, Ted Koppel offered a report / commentary on National Public Radio's "All Things Considered" which can be found online with this headline: "A Duty to Mislead: Politics and the Iraq War," and this introductory text: "Democrats are telling voters that if they are elected, all U.S. troops will be pulled out of Iraq. But as Sen. Hillary Clinton privately told a senor military adviser, she knows there will be some troops there for decades. It's an example of how in some cases, politics can force dishonesty."



In the audio report, Koppel points out that in a recent debate Senator Hillary Clinton said that her first priority if elected would be to "bring our troops home." She did not say ALL our troops, Koppel points out, and she does not mean ALL our troops. She told the New York Times three months ago that some forces would have to remain. And Koppel adds that he spoke with someone from the Pentagon who briefs Clinton, and that she had told this person that if she is elected and reelected, she expects to have troops in Iraq at the end of her second term. Koppel notes that that's 10 years away.


The possession of an X and Y chromosome does not prevent women from reading the news or understanding the candidates' positions. NOW-NY apparently believes that policy is immaterial -- women, in their view, universally and automatically back the woman in the race because … well, because that's what women do, and any deviation from their orthodoxy is a de facto "betrayal."

More …


"They" are Howard Dean and Jim Dean (Yup! That's Howard's brother) who run DFA (that's the group and list from the Dean campaign that we women helped start and grow). "They" are Alternet, Progressive Democrats of America, democrats.com, Kucinich lovers and all the other groups that take women's money, say they'll do feminist and women's rights issues one of these days, and conveniently forget to mention women and children when they talk about poverty or human needs or America's future.


What bullshit.

AlterNet is very highly-regarded by at least the non-institutional feminist community, in large part because we're the only publication that works overtime to give women a relatively equal voice. Our lineups tend to have about 40 percent female bylines, whereas less than 25 percent of political writers are women. It's no accident -- we work hard to make that happen.

As our own Jill Filipovic wrote on Feministing:


Not only am I not a die-hard Clinton supporter,* but I work for Alternet, which is apparently on the release-writer's Organizations to Kill list. I suppose I must have been psychologically gang-banged into whoring for the patriarchy - it's the only possible explanation.


AlterNet has a seven-person editorial staff -- four are women; two are white males.

And what about Earl Ofari Hutchinson, AlterNet's African-American columnist who's spent the better part of the last year and a half lobbing blistering attacks against Obama on Clinton's behalf -- I guess he doesn't count.

The truth is that including AlterNet in this rant gives away the game. NOW-NY are not behaving like political pros representing their constituents; they're Clinton partisans who, like many of our commenters who are backing a candidate, see bias against their guy or gal in every story and post we run. As best I can figure, the rule among a lot of strong partisans goes like this:

* Any article that doesn't shred Obama proves AlterNet's stunning pro-Obama bias.


* Any article that doesn't shred Clinton proves AlterNet's stunning pro-Clinton bias.


* Any article that doesn't shred Edwards proves AlterNet's stunning pro-Edwards bias.


It's really very easy -- you just have to believe that the article you're reading at the time is the only one we've ever run. This is perfectly normal for readers in a hotly-contested primary, but NOW-NY is supposed to be a professionally-run advocacy group -- not a Clinton fan club.

Back to NOW-NY:


This latest move by Kennedy, is so telling about the status of and respect for women's rights, women's voices, women's equality, women's authority and our ability -- indeed, our obligation- to promote and earn and deserve and elect, unabashedly, a President that is the first woman after centuries of men who "know what's best for us.


No, women should follow the leadership of NOW like little sheep, because they really know what's best. A simple question that I would very much like NY-NOW to address is this: Ted Kennedy has fought for the rights of women, minorities, gays and every other group that faces discrimination. If he had endorsed Clinton, would it be a "betrayal" of the African American community? Would it be de facto evidence of racism?

The bottom line is that this group is just pitting blacks against women, and that's simply incredibly short-sighted and destructive.

The irony here is that for decades feminists have rejected a whole range of arguments based on biological determinism -- the idea that biology pre-ordains decisions, political preferences, work habits, etc. And here comes NY-NOW with a release that doesn't contain a single word about why women -- or Ted Kennedy -- should support Clinton. They're effectively in full-throated support of the idea that the 'little ladies' should vote a certain way -- in this case for NY-NOW’s preferred candidate -- simply because they happen to own the same kind of reproductive organs.

I won't pretend to speak for women, but I sure wouldn't want this bunch claiming to represent me and my interests.
