Morans o'plenty, including, but not limited to the Embarrassment-in-Chief in England. Mean people, as the bumper sticker says, suck. Spain caught and punished one. Also: a wonderful conversation with my old friend Steve Trash, who premieres his new PBS kids' show, "Steve Trash Science" next week.
We finished the first broadcast of June behind by $65 on Bruce's Memorial Challenge. If you'd help us knock that out and qualify for the challenge, it would be tremendous.

The NRA's Roulette Wheel o' Death stops in Virginia Beach. And round and round it goes until the NRA is no more. "No collusion" took a kick in the teeth with the release of the John Dowd transcript. The Front Porch roundtable further dissects impeachment, as well as the indictability of a sitting president.

Ohioans to be allowed the privilege of breathing more poison and shouting down windmills. Freedom gas! Trump confesses Russia connection, displays utter ignorance of the Constitution. More 5th Grade history. Another GOP House member trots out his own stupidity over Mueller.

A special Mueller-on-the-Front Porch Wednesday!

The important aspect of finding original sources and reading them from beginning to end is that you get a complete picture of the subject, who's involved, and why the outcome is what it is. This is the problem we face when we're talking about the Mueller Report. We've been given bits and pieces while the man behind the curtain tells us everything is all clear. It isn't. It's up to us, to history, and to our government, to right itself from a path, that for all intensive reasons, that's paving a road to hell. Let's work together and see that isn't the case. Communication and discussion is vital for us to change the course that's heading us down that barren path, and we invite you to share your thoughts on how we might change it.

Kentucky Republican screws America again as tornadoes bear down on Kansas and Missouri, faces no consequences. Nitwit Nero embarrasses us and endangers relationship with Japan. AOC threatened . . . again . . . this time by a baseball team in California. How about a little rocket fuel in your water? How about A LOT?
This is a broadcast experiment in the truest sense of the word "independent." It runs on the determination of the community to have a source not beholden to advertisers or the multi-millionaire ForProfit Media. It needs your participation. Just 10 bucks per month, forty cents per day, helps keep us going.

James Madison's essay on Property, dated March, 1792 reflects how our Founders knew exactly how to craft our Constitution. They understood the fundamental problems we would face, because man continually repeats history in hopes that the events will turn out differently. They didn't then and nor will they now. Our Constitution is being disregarded and it's our nation that suffers the consequences. "United We Stand or Divided We Fall" has meaning and one hopes the first line of that sentence is the one we'll face rather than the latter.

It's Memorial Day and most broadcasters take the day off. Not I, for the morans never rest. "Hell is for Children," as the song lyric goes, particularly when they're in a DHS cage somewhere in the Southwest. Pope Frank gets a nomination for his declaration that women should carry dead fetuses to term. The NY Times is up, as well, for Maggie Haberman's puff piece on the "existential crisis" of Hopey Hicks. There's a song Johnny Cash once sang, repurposed in the modern age to "Don't Take Your Gun to Lowe's, Son. Don't take your gun to Lowe's."
As ever, The H.O.R.N. relies on the community of people who want it to stay around, to keep it around. We need subscribers. They make it all the more sustainable. Got 40 cents a day? How about becoming a $10/month subscriber?

Late to the mic after the previous night's nasty weather, we jump right to the Extraordinary Ordinary Roundtable for a mix of pop culture, political insanity (is there any other kind these days), food porn, and the plain, old-fashioned neighborly conversation that marks Friday on the Front Porch as the unusually genial broadcast that it is and has been for years.
It really is an exceptional community that gathers for these broadcasts. If you'd like to join in, please do! If you'd like to part with less than 45 cents to help keep each show on the air, please become a subscribing member at $10/month.

We begin with a brief detour into general stupidity before drawing our focus into the Trumpian sort. Then: hail, high winds, and we bug out to the basement for a tornado warning, hence the shorter-than-usual program. The danger passed, as made obvious by the fact that I'm typing this. See my Twitter feed at HeadOn.Live for a couple of photos.
