F.D.R. (F*ck Da Rich):  9/11 20th Anniversary

F.D.R. (F*ck Da Rich): 9/11 20th Anniversary

September 15, 2021

Warning: Explicit Conversations About Politics, Culture, & Sexuality

9/11: A date almost everyone knows, yet it’s still shrouded in mystery, like it was a dream, a myth or a movie. It sure looked like a movie, something no one had ever seen before... and hasn’t since. The appalling spectacle of passenger planes flying into the World Trade Centers crumbling to dust live and on repeat—one fiery, phantasmagorical special effect after another—from every different angle, felt totally surreal.

Unfortunately, it was real.

It was also very deadly. At least 2997 human beings lost their lives that dreadful day, and thousands more were poisoned by the fumes. And it was traumatic. Certainly, the harrowing experience is seared into the psyches of the actual survivors who somehow escaped the Nightmare on Fulton Street. But you didn’t have to have been there to be traumatized. Millions of us were shocked senseless, and we still exhibit symptoms of 9/11 PTSD: chronic fear, anxiety, despair, delusion, confusion, anger and terror, and even a kind of sexual trauma, a peculiar feeling of impotency, pain and rage from having witnessed America’s biggest phallic buildings—Dick 1 & Dick 2—virtually castrated by box-cutters and blowback.

Have we healed from the wounds of 9/11? Not really; how can we? Though it was the Crime of the Century, 9/11 is one of America’s greatest (mostly) unsolved mysteries, partly because “Da Rich” cover their crimes. So, on this special, almost sacred 20th anniversary, when most mainstream media is just feeding us the usual hogwash, F.D.R. explores the truth of 9/11, such that we know. We're not “Truthers" - it wasn't an "inside job," though it turned into a con job... And we have questions: Why did it happen? Why was the Bush administration so ill-prepared (despite warnings), and yet so ready to wage wars in response to 9/11 against peoples that had nothing to do with 9/11? With 15 out of 19 hijackers Saudi, plus Osama bin Laden (plus more), why is the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia one of the only Middle Eastern countries America hasn’t attacked? Why haven't we solved or tried the terrible crime of 9/11 instead of just waging perma-wars with drones and bombs? Bombing never helps anyone but the bomb-makers. 

Unfortunately, the bomb-makers are in charge… 

We are asking obvious questions, and yet they are so taboo that Reddit censored this show, shutting it down twice as we broadcast live. But we have other platforms and we will not be intimidated, so the F.D.R. Love Train rolls on down the tracks of truth.

We also talk about the generally lousy effect that 9/11 (especially coming right after the Clinton Impeachment) had on good consenting adult sexuality. Sex took a beating, while beating became “sexy,” and torture in Abu Ghraib and Guantanamo went off the charts. On the one hand, our APA-sanctioned “enhanced interrogations” destroyed innocent people, and on the other, now we can’t even try the self-confessed 9/11 mastermind, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, because we tortured him too much for his confessions to be admissible.

Of course, 9/11-inspired sex doesn't HAVE to be bad... for instance, when I fly through the air and make Max's tower explode. Wheeeee! 

Put on your headphones to listen to the show and celebrate Self-Love September! Make Self-Love (or any kind of love), Not War. It's the Bonobo Way. 

And don’t miss our fabulous star-studded throwback, 9/11 Anniversary Eve Bonoboville Bacchanal, from exactly five years ago (when we also went to the Emmys which we missed this year due to Covid-fears), on the 15th anniversary of the greatest American Crime Story never (fully) told.

F.D.R. (F*ck Da Rich): Texas Taliban, Biblical Climate Change, RIP Ed Asner & Happy Labia Day!

F.D.R. (F*ck Da Rich): Texas Taliban, Biblical Climate Change, RIP Ed Asner & Happy Labia Day!

September 8, 2021

Warning: Explicit Conversations About Politics, Culture, & Sexuality

As the Texas Taliban begin their crackdown on female sexuality, virtually outlawing a woman’s right to choose with the help of a right-wing extremist Supreme Court, floods, fires and plagues rage—rather Biblically—while heavily armed, deeply confused, ammosexual incels roam the land, some in uniform, others not—shooting it up and beating the drums for war in the streets and overseas. Meanwhile, as we broadcast live from our beautiful little village of Bonoboville, the 20th anniversary of America’s greatest unsolved mystery, 9/11, looms before us. 

We also say farewell to the late great “Ed Asner: Man of Spunk & Socialism,” loveable curmudgeon star of “Lou Grant,” “Mary Tyler Moore,” “Up,” and more, seven-time Emmy and  Eugene V. Debs award winner, SAG Union President and courageous nemesis of Ronald Reagan. And we talk about how the new FX “Impeachment” movie might skewer Bill (again!) over consensual adult sex, victimize Monica (a co-producer) and reflect the “Vast Right-Wing Conspiracy” that Hillary warned us about, and that has since metastasized into leagues of ammosexual MAGAts spouting QAnonsense, at the highest and lowest levels.  We also take a call from Chris in New Jersey who praises Ed Asner’s activism in the autism community and tells the harrowing tale of surviving the horrific floods of Tropical Storm Ida. So many sad, disturbing topics for this Love Train… 

But it’s also Labia Day 2021!

Like a vibrant Georgia O’Keeffe pussy flower blooming in a toxic junkyard, Labia Day opens us to pleasure, giving us something beautiful to celebrate (as well as the great labia-loving, senior sex we had that morning), as we assess all the misery, insanity and sex-negativity that is now flooding, burning, drowning, droning and oppressing the world. So, if you’re looking for sexy sex education, don’t miss this week’s throwback, our very first Labia Day in 2015 when, fed up with the Da Rich exploiting our labor, I decided to read between the lines—and lips—of Labor Day to find a similar, onomatopoetic, but far more suitable and bonoboësque name for this early September time off from the daily grind.  It’s a celebration of female sexuality, but since labia can be transformed into testicles in trans men, this could be Testicle Day too, which takes me onto a tangent about testicles and testament having the same root that I’m sure all the testifying-on-their -testament, anti-abortion, anti-woman, anti-sex Bible thumpers appreciate. “Dubai Guy” on Reddit wishes us a “Happy Testicles Day,” one of many comments and questions on this ride through time on the Love Train. 

Oh, and sorry for the video glitches on this one, but the audio is fine… and quite eargasmic!

F.D.R. (F*ck Da Rich):OnlyFans Flips! Wars Suck! Bonobos Rock!

September 1, 2021

Warning: Explicit Conversations About Politics, Culture, & Sexuality

We start with the Good News: OnlyFans surrenders! It may not last, but it’s a victory for sex workers. Also Good News: U.S. troops are finally leaving Afghanistan! Though ending a misbegotten Perma-War is like trying to straighten out a bad perm; it’s a mess. Biden is no genius, but Dubya and the Dick are the big adult babies who made this mess. Also Carter arming the muhajideen against Soviet Russia kickstarted it 40 years ago, around the time I was in Afghanistan. So, we #GoBonobos for pulling out now, better late and messy than never and messier!

Other Questions of the Night include: Will the U.S. finally learn its lesson (the one about not invading other countries that we didn’t learn in Vietnam)? Are suicide bombers the ISIS version of ammosexual incels? What about the no-vax, no-mask folks who willfully spread Covid? What’s religion got to do with it? Why is censorship almost always bad for society, not to mention ineffective? Why do we need sex education? Why are some people identifying as “asexual”? What’s better—flipflop politics or flipflop shoes? How can we get the billionaires to pay their fair share? Are we communists? Am I cosplaying Lady Dimitrescu Mods from Resident Evil Village? Is she cosplaying me? What is Generation Q? Is humanity going as bananas as it seems like we’re going—or does the media just emphasize the crazy for clickbait? Or is the media driving us bananas? 

Don’t go bananas; go bonobos! Listen and learn the Bonobo Way of peace through pleasure in all kinds of weather… and this is some crazy weather… Climate Change is real, and the Coronapocalypse is in the thick of it. We also talk about some of the wild shows and orgiastic bacchanals of Bonoboville’s pre-pandemic past, including this week’s amazing, orgasmic throwback, Labia Day 2018 featuring “Most Bonobo” and “Most Sapiosexual” SUZY award winner Riley Reyes and adorable Eva Yi.
