Kathy never expected a career in radio as a talk show producer. Born and raised in Atlanta, Georgia, Kathy was completing her nursing degree when in 2001 - in an emergency - she was asked to fill in as the producer of Mike's program. Within a few weeks she knew she'd found more than a temporary job. Since that beginning, Kathy has steadily grown more comfortable behind the control console, editing, engineering, and assisting in topic selection for the program while also retaining a fairly sizeable chunk of her sanity. Oh, and did we mention the utter (joyful) chaos of raising a daughter who, for some odd reason, only stops talking when she's asleep. Strange, that.

A life-long "talk radio junkie," Kathy takes her job with all the seriousness required, and thoroughly enjoys producing a talk show that's intelligent, factual, informative, and most of all entertaining. She takes great pride in -- and has great fun with -- the two biggest joys in her life: Their daughter Molly, and producing one of the most dynamic talk programs in radio.

The High Price of Cheap Gas The worst argument in favor of passing this legislation isn't the minimization of potential environmental impact, but that "somebody's gonna do it, so we might as well get our piece of the petroleum pie!" If we don't drill up the wilderness and ship that dirty sludge through our nation, some other country will! Editorials from the media have used this backward logic to defend the coming destruction.

Foxy The Fox Nation claims it is for those opposed to intolerance, excessive government control of our lives, and attempts to monopolize opinion or suppress freedom of thought, expression, and worship. Wow -- if it were any more fair and balanced, it would come with a firing squad.

State of Our Media Speaking of freaks, the real entertainment tonight won't come in seeing who kisses whom, or who stands and applauds, or who shouts "YOU LIE" during the main event, but it will be when neophyte Neocon Sen. Joni Ernst (R/IA) issues the GOP rebuttal. If the clip of her press preview on MSNBC is any indication, they better lower her mic; she's a surprisingly tiny little Teabagger.

Mixed Nuts One of the GOP Presidential hopefuls has already announced a major plank in his campaign platform, should he be selected as the nominee. Senator Rand Paul (R/KY) declared that dismantling the United Nations is a top priority. Rand Paul in particular has made some truly bizarre allegations about the world body in recent years.

And So It Begins... Well, that didn't take long. The Neocons have controlled the House of Representatives for what, a week? They are already busy busy at work, attempting to overturn President Obama's legislative efforts. Today the House voted to repeal many of the provisions of Obama's immigration reform plan, sucking away legal protections from millions of immigrant families.

Je Suis Jackass Grammatically-challenged Congressman from Texas-Rep. Randy Weber -- today apologized for comparing Obama to Hitler (he wasn't the first) in his oh-so snarky tweet that "Even Adolph [sic] Hitler thought it more important than Obama to get to Paris. (For all the wrong reasons.) Obama couldn't do it for right reasons." A cringe-worthy reference to Hitler's occupation of France.

Faux Pas No amount of native speaking from the semi-French Secretary of State will make amends for the lack of proper US official representation at today's march in Paris in response to the recent terror attacks. 3.7 million people in rallies in France and elsewhere marched to raise awareness of the dangers of terrorism.

Cuba Libre President Obama is not retreating into the shadows in the wake of the Republican revolution coming in January. His stance on normalizing relations with Cuba is giving his Neocon enemies fresh meat to skewer in the new year, and is not universally popular with Cuban ex-pats and exiles who oppose the Castro regime and its human rights violations.

SSDD (Same S**t, Different Day) So far this week is looking a lot like last week, other than the insane commercial orgy of shopping that captivated the media over the weekend. Congress remains typically divided, and is still debating the President's executive order on immigration. The Neocons are frothing with outrage and are (again) threatening to shut down the government in retaliation.

In Peace and Insecurity The events of the last several decades should be a clear demonstration that while we had a hand in creating the issue that divides the region, we have no power to affect a solution. And the events of the last 24 hours should be a clear indication that the divide between Palestine and Israel has never been greater.

Grand Jury The national guard has been activated to suppress any riots that might occur if the grand jury declines to indict Officer Darren Wilson on a wrongful death charge. If you remember, the city erupted in violence shortly after the fatal shooting when Office Wilson was not immediately arrested, but was instead placed on paid leave.

Gods and Monsters I remember the campaign to boycott Proctor and Gamble products in the 1980's because the moon and stars logo was purportedly another one of Satan's signatures. I've often wondered about the kooks who see spooky symbols hiding everywhere (Glenn Beck comes to mind), be they the Holy Virgin in a piece of toast, or Jesus on a billboard advertising spaghetti and meatballs, or Satan in a soft drink

Flanders Field We cringe at the sight of young men and women who've come home with missing limbs, permanent scars, feelings of guilt, and psychological trauma that may never be resolved. They limp home to a broken Veterans Administration and the empty promises of an indifferent administration. To confused relatives and poor job prospects.

Have You Seen the Bigger Piggies? Poor Rush Limbaugh. What a pig. A filthy rich pig who is now making the ridiculous claim that the DCCC is causing serious financial harm to his "small business." Like he's running a little mom-and-pop supermarket or something. Preposterous for a millionaire making over $25 million a year, from his wealthy backers if not direct advertisers.

Orange is the New Black Republicans know how to spend the taxpayers money on BIG weapons and take money from BIG pharma and the Frankenfood industry and the NRA and BIG oil and the Defense manufacturers and other merchants of death and destruction that make up the majority of their special interest groups. But govern? Fairly represent the will of the people and the best interest of their constituents? Not so much.

Judgement Day There are a couple of hopeful takeaways from yesterday's GOP senate takeover -- one, if the Congressional gridlock continues, then the GOP will only have themselves to blame, and two, we don't have to suffer through any run-off TV ads over the holidays. It's the little things ...

Balance of Power So when you're watching the election results dribble in tomorrow night (hopefully while listening to this program), see if the talking heads pay any attention to these crucial votes on abortion, or if they just keep their cameras fixed on the various Senatorial campaign headquarters for the usual victory parties and concession speeches.

Pat Robertson Is Birth Control Isn't it about time for Pat Robertson to rapture on outta here? His latest rant clearly indicates his mental condition is deteriorating.

Suffer the Little Children The Washington school shooting grabs national attention, but there are countless other gun deaths each day. So many, in fact, that they often don't make the top of the local headlines. With the Republicans expected to take control of Congress after next week's elections, is there any hope for meaningful legislation to stop this needless bloodshed? Or will the biggest winner next week be the NRA?

Vote For Me Most pollsters agree that the GOP will pick up seats in Congress and likely take over the senate. What will this mean for policy or legislation? Maybe nothing, given the current gridlock and lack of definition between the two parties. One big change would be the realization of Mitch McConnell's lifetime dream of becoming the majority leader in the senate.

Magic Undies The church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day saints -- aka the Mormons -- have their panties in a twist over the misconception of their magic underwear. Never heard of it?

Growth Industries Let's face it -- we are not seen as smiling liberators by most of the Muslim world. The US is a 3-D recruiting poster for ISIS terrorists, despite the propaganda the Bushies tried to force-feed the public about the oppressed Afghanis and Iraqis yearning to breathe free ... at least Saddam and al Qaeda left them free to breathe. Hellfire missiles -- not so much.

Bathroom Politics What is it about bathroom business that is so attractive to these Neocons? Remember the illicit "foot contact" under an airport bathroom stall that brought down Republican senator Larry Craig? For a party that claims to be about less government interference, they sure spend a lot of time peeking through keyholes, through bathroom doors and under our skirts.

Rapture Rifles North Carolina Rep. Walter Jones (R/Rapture) is ready to meet Jesus, and he's hoping the Prince of Peace is packing heat. He's calling for divine intervention in the form of a hybrid religious/Republican revolution to stop President Obama from sending troops to assist with the Ebola crisis in Africa.

Smallpox Day While the Neocons continue to point fingers at the Obama administration for somehow falling down on the job where it concerns the outbreak -- they conveniently forget that their Senators failed to confirm Obama's pick for Surgeon General, leaving that important post vacant, and they also cut public health funding to a point where efforts to contain an outbreak -- or create a vaccine -- are hampered.

Is There a Doctor in the House? The fact that Neocons are responsible for the lack of a Surgeon General has not stopped them from attacking the (nonexistent) Surgeon General for not speaking out about Ebola. Yeah, it's kind of confusing. They are criticizing an entity that doesn't exist and they are responsible for its nonexistence.

MadMen Silly season is upon us. It's almost time for the midterm elections, and at least one result is already in -- the political ads are crazier than ever. Let's begin with a truly nauseating ad for Rick Scott, which parodies the nauseating TLC reality TV show "Say Yes to the Dress."

First Monday in October The Supreme Court is back in session, and has announced that they will not be hearing any marriage equality cases. The bad news here is that Justice Ginsberg hinted that the court might take up the issue at a later date if, for example, one of the appeals courts in the Midwest or South upheld state bans on marriage equality.

Doublethink The family of George Zimmerman are redefining crazy. Seems George may just be the sanest of the bunch. Their antics rival the Palin's for sheer lunacy. Have you heard about this crew? Seems all the Zimmermans love their guns, suffer serious paranoia, and George's brother Robert wanted to get George a reality TV show that was some kind of hybrid of Candid Camera and Keeping Up With the Kardashians.

No Justice, No Peace Seems like everything is slow in Ferguson, except the trigger fingers. It took the chief a month to apologize for taking so long to remove their dead son's body in the street, where the shooter -- Darren Wilson -- paraded around the corpse for hours (as documented on multiple mobile videos). Sickening.

Freedom Players Another day, another story of a pasty white Republican politician who wants to legalize discrimination against a minority group.

Empty Desks -- Empty Lives Palestinian children finally returned to their schools in Gaza. Or what's left of their schools, anyway. With what's left of their schoolmates. Twenty-six schools were destroyed and 250 were damaged in the latest bombing by Israel. At least 20 schools still serve as temporary housing for up to 64,000 families left homeless when the bombs turned their houses to rubble.

Duesday -- or Doomsday? Another month, another set of sweeping stats on global death and destruction. As predicted, Israel is attempting a massive land grab following the recent Gaza bombings. Wasn't that always the ultimate objective? Each time Israel begins an air-strike campaign, it is immediately followed by a new "settlement" incursion. Israel will not stop until all Palestinians are forced off the remains of their lands.

Win Ben Stein's Racism Stein takes umbrage at the concept that Brown was unarmed. The way Stein sees it, Brown was armed by his size and weight, if not his attitude. He was a big kid, and therefore he had a built-in weapon that, apparently, was threatening enough for officer Wilson to fire at least half a dozen bullets into his body.

World War Three? The Obama administration is contemplating airstrikes in Syria against a group that is threatening the Assad regime, because of its territorial gains in Iraq. The end result being support of Assad. The irony is stunning. But so typical of our convoluted relations in the world. Looking at a regional map it's hard to find a spot where the US is not involved in some nasty business.

Long Tall Texan Speaking at the Heritage Foundation today, Perry declared that there was a very real possibility that the Islamist terror organization ISIS had infiltrated the US by illegally crossing our southern border. If this is supposed to bolster his long-standing position on immigration and border security, it comes across as proof that the governor could use a geography refresher course.

Police States Are these police officers trained in military weaponry, or are they just given these lethal, high-tech weapons and set loose on the civilian population? It seems the war on terror has spilled onto Main Street, USA. SWAT teams raid barber shops and reporters face rubber (and real) bullets and teargas bombs for simply reporting the carnage and brutality.

The Right to Remain Silent It's been three days now since Michael Brown, an unarmed 18-year-old black teenager, was shot multiple times by a police officer, and Ferguson Missouri officials have yet to name the officer in question. They cite fear for the officer's safety. This is rather ironic, as the officer certainly had no regard for the safety of this young man whose only crime was "walking while black."

Some persecuted Yazidis are now escaping the mountain and are seeking safety in nearby villages, but thousands more remain stranded. While US airstrikes may have allowed this minor exodus, airdrops of food and water missed their mark.

Nestle Makes The Very Best ... The fossil fuels used in the production of the plastic bottles further wreaks havoc on the environment.

The Long, Hot Summer Regardless of the claims made by Neocon Luddites, global climate change is a very real thing. The good news is there are specific measures that can be taken to reduce the rate of climate disruption, if not reverse, the current and future damage from decades of barely-regulated fossil fuel consumption, among other toxins.

Strange Bedfellows There are plenty of male candidates who are deserving of special observation, like Florida's Jake Rush. He is a devoted father, conservative christian, former police officer, capable lawyer, and possible vampire. Yes, he might just be one of the undead, which would get him Dick Cheney's endorsement, if nothing else. Mitch McConnell has proved than an unblinking zombie can successfully rise to the upper echelon of the GOP.
