Replay of my interview on 104.9 FM this morning, 04-10-2014

Trish Causey - Liberal Democrat, Mississippi 4th District, running for U.S. House of Representatives 2014Hey, everybody!

I didn’t realize 104.9 FM was a conservative station until just before the interview when there was some message from Sean Hannity.  So I’m surprised and thrilled they let a progressive liberal hippie such as myself on the air.

Though an interview at 7 a.m. is a rarity for this theatre person, I thought it went okay.  I touched on the topics of women’s rights, pro-choice, LGBT…

comment-sound-bites-anonI received this message on my Facebook page last night:

Hi Trish, Your sound bites are catchy and are point on. I’d like to edit your blogs, though, to soften up the rough edges and present your ideas respectfully. I like what Delores Huerta says in defining Peace. “Peace is respecting other’s civil rights.” Please contact me.

Thanks, but no thanks.

Did it ever occur to you that I write what I…

Mississippi’s GOP allows “Religious Freedom” for Hate and Intolerance

Mississippi’s GOP allows “Religious Freedom” for Hate and Intolerance

Mississippi Governor Phil Bryant Signing Religious Hate Anti-LGBT Bill into LawDear Self-Righteous Fake Christians:  Go spew your hate-filled, intolerant drivel elsewhere.

Last week, Mississippi Governor Phil Bryant signed into law SB2681, the so-called “religious freedom” bill, which is in fact a license to hate and discriminate.

While many activists have rightly spoken out on the motivations of this bill’s initiators — to allow even further discrimination of LGBT, this…

Do not leave Mississippi because of the bigots, misogynists, & homophobes

Do not leave Mississippi because of the bigots, misogynists, & homophobes

Trish Causey - Liberal Democrat, Mississippi 4th District, running for U.S. House of Representatives 2014I hear people talking about leaving Mississippi because of the legalized bigotry and misogyny being enacted by our state legislators and US Congress representatives.  I understand how you feel, after all my “day job” is covering Broadway theatre in New York.  The grass always seems greener, as it were.  But I’m asking all of you to stay and “be the change” with me.

Why?

We can’t make change if we…

Bring on religious discrimination. I’m ready for battle.

leonardo-da-vinci-vitruvian-man-pentacleIn honor of the hate-sponsored religious discrimination bill passed by the Mississippi legislature, I will start wearing pentacles again just to see if I get discriminated against.  I would take a case to the Supreme Court if need be.

FYI: the pentacle (5-pointed star in a circle) represents the 4 elements (earth, air, fire, water) and Spirit (universal energy/god, whatever you call it, etc.). …

The Race Is On

The Race Is On

Trish Causey - Liberal Democrat, Mississippi 4th District, running for U.S. House of Representatives 2014Now that the race is officially on, let’s review.

I am not a politician.  I am an activist.  I am not here to play games.  I will not change who I am for anyone.

The government is supposed to be here for the People.  NOT the corporations.

The First Amendment, the philosophy of Separation of Church and State, and the Treaty of Tripoli are very clear on keeping religion out of government.

Women are…

A Well-Funded, Viable Candidate…

Trish Causey - Liberal Democrat, Mississippi 4th District, running for U.S. House of Representatives 2014I just had an really great conversation with a fellow MS-04 Democrat.  Because I’ve been talking with the other residents of Mississippi’s 4th Congressional District, I know I’m not the only one past ready for change in Mississippi.  I also know I’m more progressive than what even some of the Democrats want.  Well, I’m no DINO.  I’m a true blue, progressive liberal Democrat.

What’s more, I…
