It’s the Empire, Stupid with Phil Farrugio

In this new segment our regular columnist Phil Farruggio presents his thoughts on a different topic every week.


Mickey Z

Mickey and I discussed activism, elections, and how the responsibility for making change falls on each of us. We discussed the Fort Lauderdale actions against the feeding ban as an example of people getting involved.


Chuck Gregory and Mike Palecek

I opened with “Kill the Poor” with a new verse I wrote especially for Fort Lauderdale Mayor Jack Seiler. Mike and I did the following segments:

  • The new daytime TV game show that’s sweeping the nation … “Chicken Little Says” …
    Chicken Little Says … The Sky is Falling
    Chicken Little Says … Look out for Uncle Jihad with his big ugly finger pointing out from the poster on the sidewalk, saying “I Want YOU For Isis.”
  • The other new daytime TV game show that will be sweeping the nation tomorrow … “Beheaded & Buried At Sea”
  • Sitting On The Floor At Ward Cleaver’s Feet, Listening To Ward Cleaver
