Synopsis:

The Debt Ceiling Can is Kicked Down the Road. Monday's national Coming Out Day

The national debt ceiling has been raised, thus averting a world-wide catastrophe. But the can is only kicked down the road to December 3.

We talked about the pandemic and the anti-vaxxers and others who are denying reality, and sometimes dying from COVID-19. Meanwhile, Alabama is using the COVID-19 money to build prisons.

In a flashback to 50 years ago R. Paul talked about the efforts to get a hearing for Intro 475, the first gay civil right bill, to happen.

National Coming Out Day is Monday. R. Paul's been out for quite a while.

Facebook is getting outed as a bad actor.

There is a Web page for this radio program.
