Almost forgot something pretty important — Wyoming Equality Rocks will be raising money on a donation basis for Laramie Reproductive Health, so there’s a huge reason to bring a few bucks. PLUS, Will Welch of Queer Advocacy Network is going to stop by the show to discuss THREE bills before the Wyoming Legislature for non-discrimination, marriage equality, and domestic partnerships. Fun fact: They all have bipartisan support!

In response to bill to drug-test welfare recipients, Ohio Democrat proposes testing lawmakers

An Ohio Democratic lawmaker is proposing to drug-test elected officials, in response to a Republican-backed bill calling for drug-testing of welfare recipients.

Rep. Robert Hagan’s bill would require statewide officeholders, legislators, members of Gov. John Kasich’s jobs board and recipients of federal bailout money to pay for their testing for un-prescribed pharmaceuticals, illegal drugs and alcohol. Officials testing positive would have to undergo treatment or be booted from office.

Hagan says it’s hypocritical for lawmakers to say they’re protecting taxpayer money by testing welfare recipients for drugs if they themselves won’t submit to testing.

Well, well, well… isn’t this just marvelous? Of course, I’d prefer not drug-testing welfare recipients, but let’s make it more equitable, shall we? He suggested anyone who receives taxpayer dollars should be tested if welfare recipients are tested - simple as that. Let us not forget how drug-testing folks applying for welfare turned out for Florida

Oh, and he supports the Occupy Movement. He spoke at Occupy Youngstown:

"Wall Street started the war, and we the people will finish it," Rep. Robert Hagan of Youngstown told a fired-up crowd.

BAMF credentials established, sir.

My #OccupyAmerica #OccupyTogether playlist

I feel this is a work in progress, so feel free to suggest more songs.

#OccupyAmerica #OccupyTogether Music List
For #OccupyCasper or anyone else

Some of these songs are sarcastic, or just general expressions of angst. Some others, well, the message is pretty clear. You’ll find multiple genres and decades too.

Assembled by Meg Lanker-Simons, host of Cognitive Dissonance on 93.5 KOCA FM

(Since this list is long, it’s after the jump)

These people who are making a big deal out of gay marriage? I don’t give a fuck about who wants to get married to anybody else! Why not?! We’re making a big deal out of things we shouldn’t be making a deal out of.

They go on and on with all this bullshit about ‘sanctity’ — don’t give me that sanctity crap! Just give everybody the chance to have the life they want.

Clint Eastwood being a BAMF while discussing same-sex marriage in GQ's October edition. He boils down the arguments for marriage equality to a beautiful simplicity - Why not?

He really means this:

I dare anyone to disagree with Clint Eastwood. For fuck’s sake, he was Dirty Harry! He makes Chuck Norris look like Justin Bieber. I don’t know about you all, but his quote literally made my day better.
