In light of “International Women’s Day” are women still the weaker of the two sexes and in need of governmental and societal protection or are those in power using the long-standing myth of the patriarchy in order to keep women in a mental state of victimhood?
Join Danielle and Robert as they “marvel” over the fact that one of the most privileged and protected classes in society today still clings to the oppression card instead of appreciating the greatest amount of freedom they have ever experienced in the history of mankind.
Comments Off on 592 – Guest: Paul Lambert – A short wave with a long reach
Shortwave radio has long been a weapon in the war of ideas, and continues to be so today, much to the surprise of many. So powerful a weapon, at times throughout history simply being caught in possession of a shortwave radio could warrant imprisonment or death.
It is a significant fact that those threatened by shortwave signals have never been friends of freedom. So it is fitting that our guest, Paul Lambert, who sponsors Just Right on shortwave broadcasts heard around the world, should join us in a discussion about shortwave and about some of his European perspectives on many of the issues often raised on the show.
As a resident of Berlin, Paul’s views on the political environment within Germany offer some fascinating comparisons to the narratives heard outside that country in the major news media. From the disturbing social trends between men and women developing in conjunction with Germany’s mass migration policies, to arbitrarily forcing households, employers, and even car rental agencies to pay a ‘TV tax,’ these trends may well become the norm in a not-too-distant North American Leftist future as well.
At the heart of every issue discussed is, of course, the very ‘right’ itself to discuss any matter or issue with willing participants, and to share those discussions with willing listeners/viewers. A ‘TV tax’ is merely one contrived way to force the unwilling to finance views and values not shared or even opposed.Continue reading »
Comments Off on 589 – Instrumental in my own construction
Whether in music or in life, we are all ‘instrumental in our own construction.’ In this second of our two holiday-season shows, show host Bob Metz winds up his hands-on personal musical demonstration when he reaches an ‘epiphany’ applicable to both music and to life in general.
You accept the musical cards as they are dealt you, and just as in life, you then dance to your own drummer and play your own tune. And if the tune you play is what makes you happy, then you’ll know it’s the tune that’s Just Right for you.
Comments Off on 588 – The esthetics of music – On a personal note
The appreciation of music is a completely subjective experience and could not be otherwise. Music elicits an emotional response at the moment of apprehension, which is one of the things making it such a powerful force, both personal and social. In the field of philosophy, music is found under the category of esthetics.
Over our next two holiday-season shows, we’ll be presenting a hands-on personal music demonstration by Just Right host Bob Metz. As he performs a few original instrumentals on his 2014 Christmas gift – an electronic ‘piano’ keyboard – Bob also reflects on music’s parallels to the larger world of life itself.
It’s a personal story about a personal musical journey, one unlike any other we taken on the show before, but one we trust you’ll still find to be Just Right!
Comments Off on DMS 041 – The special Christmas episode
What makes this Christmas particularly ‘special’ is that Danielle is able to be here to share the season with us. Last year, as listeners to December 13th’s Just Right discovered, Danielle spent her Christmas hospitalized in an intensive care unit with little expectation of survival. This year, she opens the show with a reminder that “the corpse still has the floor” – citing a line from one of her favorite Christmas movies, The Ref.
Indeed, Christmas is that time of year when Christmas movies and music become a hot topic of discussion as people cite their favorite and least favorite entertainment representatives of the season. Added to the usual disagreements over which songs/movies are the best or worst, has been the inappropriate but inevitable racist/sexist narratives pushed by the social justice warriors who are oblivious to the original Christmas spirit underlying the targets of their criticisms.
From the controversy surrounding the song, ‘Baby It’s Cold Outside,’ to social justice concerns about the ‘bullying’ in Rudolf the Red Nosed Reindeer, the Christmas season is becoming the silly season.
And on the seasonal matter of giving and receiving, while Robert suggests that to say ‘it is better to give than to receive’ represents a moral inequity, Danielle interprets ‘better’ simply as ‘easier’ – which may itself ‘present’ an inequity of a different kind. Any way you look at it, whether giving or receiving, it’s always best to do so in the spirit that’s Just Right for the Christmas season.
Social justice warriors were clearly on the warpath at the Women in Entertainment gala earlier this month when comedienne Hanna Gadsby delivered a rousing speech defining her subjective boundaries of morality along gender and racial lines.
We are judged by what we find funny, begins Danielle, and cites the recent controversy surrounding comedian Kevin Hart. In 2010, Hart performed a stand-up routine about his personal discomfort at the prospect of being able to relate to his young son, should his son turn out to be gay. Not offensive by any means, nor considered so by anyone in 2010, it nevertheless became grounds enough for Hart to have to step down from hosting the upcoming Oscars. In today’s world of political correctness, Hart’s 2010 performance is considered anti-gay.
Comedy was once considered ‘the’ so-called ‘safe space’ for free speech – a refuge open to both testing and stretching the envelope of acceptable discourse and observation through the safety of humor. But today’s mainstream comedy has become a litany of political correctness and virtue signaling.Continue reading »
When Al Gore released his “An Inconvenient Truth” video the world was taken in by a science that neither they nor Gore truly understood.
With his book, “Inconveniently Screwed,” author Dave Plumb unravels the science behind climate change and in doing so debunks many of the myths and junk science promulgated by climate change alarmists, politicians, media, and yes, even some scientists.
This Just Right exclusive is a follow up to our interview with Dave Plumb on show #579 – The Frozen Debate on Climate Change which aired October 25, 2018.
