Yes, folks, the show recorded a night early! Sorry for the short notice but there was a schedule conflict that would have made a Sunday recording impossible. So tonight we talked about the Presidential Cabinet, their roles and who Obama has picked for their seats. The general observation - it's Clinton's third term except for Defense, and that's only if Gates accepts. Also we talked about the Fairness Doctrine that is now being touted by the Democrats. Thanks to the Republican Party of Second Life for allowing us the use of their theater! Be sure to check out their podcast, Conservative Matters with Ron Skytower!

In keeping with the 4 stages of mourning, we decided to talk about shock and numbness... mainly because that's where we've been while watching the news and reading the blogs. Here are the things we talked about (or most of them at least):
- Shocked by the naive presentation of opinion by MSNBC's "Terrorist" guy when talking about the Al-Queda tape referring to Obama as the "House Negro" (which can be found here).
- Shocked by the final realization of Anderson Cooper that Hamas is antisemitic.
- Numbed by the results of a recent Zogby poll.
- Numbed by the fact that it appears the Fed is going to bail out Citigroup.
- Shocked that people still don't understand that just because they can get news instantly, a war and a financial crisis can't be fixed instantly.
- Shocked by the pure hatred that is coming out of the GBLT community in California.

Tonight's show marks a change in the direction of the podcast. We are moving away from discussing news articles and leaving the campaigns alone. With the Obama victory, we as conservatives need to identify what we need to do to bring the Republican party back into power! In addition, we are going to examine the statements that are being made at change.gov and hold them up to the light. Tonight we brought in our new show format - we have decided based on traffic analysis and download counts that our audience wants to hear about conservative stances on issues! Our most popular shows by far have been those where we were talking about the issues, not when we were waxing eloquently about the failures or successes that were identified in the news. Each week, we will be taking about two or three main things. Tonight, we talked about the following things:
- Conservatism and it's place in the Republican Party - McCain and the "moderates" have done a wonderful job screwing up the GOP, now it's time to rebuild it. I agree with Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council when he says, that conservatives need to take back control of the GOP if the party is to return to its winning ways..
- We reviewed the statement made by Mr. Obama regarding "National Service" and how he used this platform to sway many young Americans to support him by promising them a college education. We also mentioned the quote by Mr. Emanuel (Mr. Obama's Chief of Staff) in his new book, which identified that "Anyone between the ages of 18 and 25 would be compelled into public service". Where does this make things stand when we then look at the text of the 13th Amendment?
