Episode 117: Corruption and Health Care

0 comments
Tonight's show went quite long - almost 10 minutes over! There were a lot of things to talk about and... well... those things just happen some times!  I'll also warn everyone (and I do on the podcast as well) that the conversation about Toyota dips pretty far into the "conspiracy theory" gene pool.  Listen with your tinfoil hat tightly attached!

In tonight's episode we had to cover the obvious points. First off, a catch-up from something discussed last week about the school spying. Then we had Toyota, Rangel, Paterson and the Health Summit to talk about. It was a very interesting show with comments coming from SecondLife and TalkShoe, where we had a guest from "the other side" that spurred some of the conversation.

Episode 116: Beer, Branding and Bruising

0 comments
We're back after a week off with a few interesting tales to tell and articles to talk about. There is a particular graphic that I wanted to discuss tonight - one that I had mentioned two weeks ago.

Before we got into that, there were some other stories that had to be discussed - the links to them are below.

Tonight's show was a bit bumpy - Ken and I were both exhausted. Additionally, some of the articles I originally found were from previous battles between Kay Bailey Huchison and Rick Perry. We also had a great crowd in the Talkshoe chat room with had good comments and conversation. For those that can't join in on the live recordings, we are working on a way to deliver the transcripts via the web after the show. For now, you just have to put up with me reading those comments I feel bear repeating.

Taking a Weekend Off

0 comments
Everybody needs a vacation sometimes!  This upcoming week is one for me (Hatton) and things are playing out that the podcast can't be recorded.

So we thank everyone for following the show and invite you to join us next weekend when we pick things back up!  If you're dying for a conservative political podcast to listen to this week, here are a few that I listen to:

The Zoo Radio Show is a weekly show that records on Tuesdays at 8:30pm
Oatney on the Air is an off-schedule show by David Oatney
The Truth and Hope Report is a blog and podcast by Adam Graham

Additionally, here are some of the articles that have been shared in the past week - depending on the news cycle they may or may not make it in to next week's show:

After Sensationalized TV Report, Vandals Strike Nashville Mosque - This is an example of the fact that regardles of how well educated and "tolerant" a society can become, there is still ignorance, fear and hatred.

Cocaine found hidden among Valentine roses - I've heard of an intoxicating smell but come on!

Christian speech targeted as 'hate' - From the article - The note said, "You people are like the KKK but only in the form of religion ... you should be ashamed of yourselves." Guess the statement I made on the first article applies to this one as well - only this time the hatred seems to be coming from people that are demanding "tolerance."

NY boy, 11, faces charges over pencil attack - Right, let's arrest the students using pencils as weapons, not the ones using guns, knives and drugs. Great choice!

New York Senate Expels Monserrate Over Assault - Here's a lesson for anyone that wants to be in the New York Assembly - don't beat on your girlfriend... it could loose you your job!

Governor Paterson: "only way I'm leaving early is in a box""The only way I’m not going to be governor next year is at the ballot box, and the only way that I'll be leaving before is in a box..." BEST. QUOTE. EVER.

Comptroller: School reserves too rich - Given the economic crisis in New York, I don't blame the schools for stockpiling money. It's a bitch of a thing to have half your budget disappear.

Beer May Be Good for Your Bones - To quote Benjamin Franklin: "Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy."

Have a great weekend everyone and be sure to join us for the podcast next week!

Episode 115: A Tale of Two Parties

0 comments
In tonight's show we are going to talk about a few local items and then plow into a couple of articles about the movements being made at the Tea Party convention. We also have to make a few remarks about the President's plans for the near future and what impact that may have.

Actually, as the discussion moved forward, the Tea Party seems to be coming out less as a third party and more as a political power. This is good on a number of different levels. First and foremost is the fact that, as systems are set up today, any candidate that wants a chance of winning needs to have the support of either one of the majority parties (GOP/DNC) or have a LOT of personal prestiege. By working as a power, the Tea Party can back candidates that support a fiscally conservative platform regardless of the letter at the end of their name.

Ken kept an eye on the game (it *was* Superbowl Sunday, after all) and called the game for the Saints 3 minutes in. Guess they will come marching home after all!

One thing that was mentioned during the show that will be updated on the site this week - the show for next week will probably be postponed or potentially cancelled. We'll have to see how things progress.
