monologue for 8/19/12.. Helen Gurley Brown, Pussy Riot, I Fought the Law….

helen, pussy riot, monologue

welcome to anything anything, I’m rich russo,

this is your weekly two hour, ass kicking band breaking, genre busting, multi station eargasmic free form radio extravanganza broadcasting in New jersey,

and two sides of the female coin, begin us off, Helen gurley brown, obviously an influence to the women of the world with cosmopolitian magazine, which of course led to sex and the city, she passed away this week at age 90, we heard from her 1963 album, a spoken word masterpiece of sorts, yet a somewhat disturbing view of that time in our country regarding women, as she talks about affairs, secretaries, some brute force amongst other things and later on we’ll hear an even more baffling and disturbing segment from the album..

and then pussy riot from Russia with putin lights the fires, there has been endless coverage of their plight, and social media is abuzz with the perceived injustice to them. And here’s where I stand on this, and it’s not the same belief as many of those who feel these girls were wronged

and as usual, I will step in and be the voice of logic. And let’s be perfectly clear, regardless of how we feel about the laws of another country, their laws are their laws, and do I believe they got these girls on a technicality,

yes,

but it’s just like catching Al Capone on tax evasion to a degree. They broke a law and regardless of whether that law is inane or not, it’s still on the books there. I’m not quite sure if a bunch of people in ski masks walked up the the altar at st patrick’s. or at temple or a mosque, would be received very well, or how about in an airport or on a plane.

This is from legal expert peter maggs: Russian legal code identifies two types of hooliganism: petty and criminal. Petty hooliganism is more or less like disorderly conduct —90% of those convicted for this offense are “obnoxious drunks.” The punishment is usually a fine or brief imprisonment
Criminal hooliganism is more serious. It has to be “a gross violation of public order, showing a disrespect for society.” It must involve weapons or objects used as weapons,

OR

be done for motives of political, ideological, racial, national, or religious hatred, or hatred toward a social group. It can carry a sentence of up to 5 years if committed by an individual, or 7 years if committed by an organized group.
The band was convicted of criminal hooliganism because their performance in a church “disrupted the peace of a religious institution.”

And yes it did, that’s the law, the band knew exactly what they were doing, they premeditated it, they had film crews on hand, and even released that song we just heard by them the day they were sentenced. Kim Kardashian would be proud of their PR prowess coming from being a no talent nobody to becoming a world wide buzz celebrity…sadly in pussy riot’s case there was no sex tape.

The band easily could have done their thing elsewhere but a church,

withOUT breaking a law that they were admittedly aware of ,

one of the members even said she didn’t think the sentence would be this harsh, therefore knowing it was a crime. And by the way they have small children, and what mother knowing commits a crime they are planning on publicizing, which has the possibility of separating them from their children? This isn’t a welfare mom stealing food from a market to put food on the table for her children, this was a premediated crime, with video shot, a PR firm lined up, and a song ready to release…

laws and sentencing are deterrents, or at least supposed to be, and yes as inane as this is to us, there will not be many other Russian protests like this, the precedent has been set, it’s jail. Unlike here where we are spoiled by high powered lawyers and the more affluent you are, the better you are treated in the legal system, which is why Paris Hilton can get busted for possession of Cocaine and not get any jailtime and it becomes a late night tv joke, but the guy on the gritty streets of low income urban area will get jailtime for possessing less coke than paris did..

that is an injustice.

And with twitter etc with it’s retweet after retweet free pussy riot, it’s just a lazy way of piling on,

but if this is such a grave inhumane justice that a country has a law that someone intentionally broke as a publicity stunt, yes if you film a crime and circulate it yourself, it’s a pr stunt.

So Where’s the kickstarter campaign to raise money for a planeful of people to fly to Russia, don ski masks, and replicate what the band did, come on put your money where your mouth is, celebs, go to Russia and do it,

well we know that ain’t happening… so there you have it, it’s not very punk at all…

Tuesday is the birthday of one of the most important punk rockers of all time, Joe Strummer, and he let his songs do the talking, and in this case we’ll let one of his cover versions with the clash doing the talking about pussy riot..

This is the clash covering a song made famous first by the bobby fuller 4, I fought the law on anything anything…

Monologue from Opening 08/05/12 “Gore Vidal, Psycho Chicken, Everything is Broken”

On the radio shows sunday, it was the first time that i’ve done the same intro and opening songs across both stations, i felt it was important and worth repeating here too…especially with all of the emails i received about the opening…

and more so with Gore Vidal dying and the Chick-Fil-a Drama, i really couldn’t have done anything but open with an Gore Vidal interview where he is dismantling the Christian faith, saying they portray God as a blackmailer. into some weird song called God made the Chickens into Psycho Chicken, into my monologue about it all, into Dylan’s Everything is Broken….

you can read the transcript of my monologue below and listen to the segment from Gore’s Interview thru the beginning of the Dylan song here…

welcome to anything anything, I’m rich russo,

this is your weekly two hour, ass kicking band breaking, genre busting, multi station eargasmic free form radio extravanganza broadcasting in New jersey,

and what the hell is going on in this country….and like anything else it all comes down to religion and the skewed interpretation of peoples beliefs of things written thousands of years ago,

gore vidal passed away this past week, a great writer and thinker, we heard his philosophies on the Christian faith which in essence portraying god as a blackmailer. A fascinating take on it and then we launched into god made the chickens by snack music into the inevetible psycho chicken by the fools,

and this whole chicken thing is baffling, disturbing and a sad representation of where this country is right now for tolerance and human rights.

The Christian belief based on John 1:9 in the bible promises that if you confess your sins, “that He is faithful to forgive and to cleanse you from all unrighteousness.”

Note: This includes ALL sin,

Psalm 103:12 also promises, “As far as the east is from the west, so far has He removed our transgressions from us.”

So that being said…..

why does anyone care in the Christian faith care what other people do with their lives? if anyone sins they can ask for forgiveness, it’s not the Christian faith’s mission to determine WHAT is a sin, their mission is to let everyone know what they believe in as a God, offers you an UNCONDITIONAL opportunity to be forgiven for anything you do.

This whole chick-fil-a saga is not about freedom of speech, it’s about the support of organizations that want to suppress other people’s right to the life they choose.
if any organization or business, supports the KKK or a Neo- Nazi foundation, or something against women’s rights, or anything that hinders the lifestyle of a gender, or nationality or beliefs of another human’s rights, it is something they deserve to be called out on….

and in those situations they always are. this situation is the same, yes, this is comparable to women’s suffrage in the early part of the last century, and the communist witch hunts and racial segregation of the 60’s.

It is.

And this isn’t solely about same sex marriages, it’s much more than that.

In this country, in 29 states, someone can actually be fired or not hired for being gay or transgender.

Yeah that’s true.

There are actually countries where being gay is illegal with the penalty of life imprisonment or even death.

Chick-fil-a has supported organizations that are pushing for the criminalization of someone being gay as well as organizations that support “trying to fix gays”

If this sort of thing went on against any other minority group, you wouldn’t have people in line buying sandwiches, there would be FOR RENT signs in the window.

The chick-fil-a people and Mike Huckebee have the right to believe in whatever they want, they can spend their time and money any way they choose. They have that freedom..

but they also now walk the line with those who mistreated women, blacks, jews, or any other nationality, religion or gender that’s been peresuceuted in this country…

which ironically this country began as a group of people leaving England because they were persecuted for their beliefs.

I understand that all Christians do not hold these extremist beliefs but sadly they get lumped in with the ones that do, because if you do NOTHING you are in essence doing SOMETHING.

As we head into another election year, with the country getting worse and worse and more divided on everything, and lobbyists and superpacs making decisions for us and making our votes less important, I could only think of one song to sum this all up…

Here’s Bob Dylan, Everything is Broken on anything anything
