Like a Rubber Biskit, I have spent my life bouncing from here to there and back to here again. I have created, guided, and been the inspiration for many people, projects, and events. I cannot sit still and must be constantly doing something, going somewhere, and being involved. Writing, Art, Tattooing, Photography, Video, and my Podcast affords me an opportunity to release the madness that transpires within my mind.

    The Rubber Biskit Road Show Presents: "We Versus I"

    Welcome to Season Two of the Rubber Biskit Road Show! In this inaugural podcast episode, The GYPSY takes us on a journey through three interconnected subjects that have captured his attention and sparked his contemplation.

    Firstly, The GYPSY dives into the absurdity of a recent assertion by the Catholic Church. He discusses the notion that the use of "We" instead of "I" by a priest during the sacrament of baptism could invalidate thousands of infant baptisms. This perplexing interpretation highlights the intricacies of religious doctrine and the potential implications of language in matters of faith.

    Moving on, The GYPSY sheds light on a troubling development within the Kansas City, Missouri Police Department. He brings attention to a proposed seminar that unfairly targets Romani People, commonly known as Gypsies, as criminals and provides guidance on how to identify them. This practice underscores the importance of confronting and challenging stereotypes and prejudices within law enforcement.

    Lastly, The GYPSY addresses a pressing issue that has become increasingly prevalent in the United States: the lenient sentencing of police officers involved in unjustified shootings. He offers insights into the systemic factors at play and calls within the criminal justice system to address this troubling trend.

    Join The GYPSY for a thought-provoking discussion that delves into the complexities of religion, prejudice, and justice in today's society. He challenges listeners to confront difficult truths and engage in meaningful dialogue on issues that affect us all.
