Since I started this column a few months ago, I have concentrated upon the quirky, the intriguing, the aesthetically pleasing. No cute animal videos, no heavy political messages. I have felt that OB Rag needs to expand its presence into the world of arts and culture because the arts are where we voice what it is to be free, to explore, to experience, unfettered of social convention and regulations.
I also exist in a very real world in which the left as well as the right has been exhorted to reconsider the rhetoric engendered by the shooting of 19 people (which left 6 people dead and a congresswoman wounded in Tucson.)
So take a look at this video and decide for yourself about the toxic environment in which we live and try to pass just laws. “If Ballots don’t work, Bullets will.” She really gets going around the 6 min mark.
This would all descend into the Florida swamp of bullshit if it weren’t for the fact that Joyce Kaufman initially served as chief of staff to Congressman Allen West and is a Florida Radio personality at 850WFTL.
