It's "Metaphor Monday" on The After Show. This is the day when we call things what they are. No Similes allowed. Nope. Not today.
West Virginia residents who were billed for poisoned water they didn't use, billed the water company for the cost of lost wages and profits when businesses closed, extra school costs, sewage bills from flushing pipes and the cost of additional taxes they’ll be forced to pay to manage the crisis; Tea Party groups collecting money to unseat Republicans they deem not conservative enough complain Republican leadership is playing hardball by fighting back; Conservatives are upset Obamacare allows workers to quit their low paying job and get a better one.
All that and more on The After Show with Wink & Justice.
Player and other info below the Orange Flourish.
The After Show with Wink and Justice broadcasts 9am to 10am Pacific on Netroots Radio.
Metaphor Monday, Hip Hump Day Wednesday, Thank God It's Giovedì! (that's what we call it) and Angle of Repose Friday.

Question: Who is your audience? What are you here for?~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Answer: Tribal Alliances, Heart-felt Convictions, Passionate Reason, Random Abandon, Sustainable Civility and a kiss; to comfort the sad and the mad Ones; the Ones roaming the International section of the American Supermarket at night; or roaming the neglected streets looking for an angry malaprop to sink their teeth into; the Ones who seek without seeking and learn as much as they teach; the Ones who embrace and kiss and embrace again; the Ones who sing the song of the city and the ballads of the forest; the Ones who chant the rhythm of the sea and hum the melody of the desert; the Ones who sing the prayer of Her name and Her name is the World. Yes, those are the Ones. -- JP
