Episode 327: They're Not Even Trying

0 comments
This episode was a bit more sedate but no less informative and interesting.  We talked about some good examples of cronyism and chaos in the system being created only to serve the interests of those in power.

At this point you'd have to be either brainwashed or blind not to see that our elected and appointed officials are working the system. In this episode we look at several examples where the pandering is completely obvious.

I'm a bit late in posting this episode, I'll blame it on the polar vortex. We had a lot of fun with this episode discussing different articles that all come from the "you can't make this up" stack.

Every week we open with a fun or human interest story and through the recording we try to have fun with the conversation. In this episode we're going to look at some stories that fall under the heading of, "you just can't make this stuff up!" Whether we're looking at actual clowns, spending, marriage or climate change these articles will definitely start a conversation. How much of it turns into rolling punch-lines is up for debate!

There were a lot of these kinds of articles this week. Not all could make the list so here are some others.

Episode 313: Speaking What We Believe

0 comments
Merry Christmas! The days seemed to get away from me posting this episode to the site and for that I apologize. This was a much more lively episode and we had a lot to discuss. It's interesting to listen to the agreements and disagreements even among our own callers. For example, Larry asked what good it did to bring up Mark Levin's comment about the Republican party and Ken was there to disagree with him and point out that it's a valid complaint. This was a thought-provoking show in a few different ways

With the blow-back on the Phil Robertson "Duck Dynasty" comments this past week, I thought it would be good for us to talk about the impacts of speaking what we believe. We're going to take it from a slightly different vantage point. We're going to talk about what we believe, what we see liberals and those considered mainstream republican and the reflection on their beliefs.

Our fundraising campaign to take our podcast to the next level is in full swing! The final goal of this campaign is $1,850 and will allow us to join the Boost Radio Network.

Episode 312: Follow the Power, Follow the Money

This was a bit more sedate of an episode. These happen from time to time, the subject is a solid one and the information is good. There are some areas where Joesf and I had different takes on an item, especially with the budget bill that was recently passed by the House.

A common phrase that is used in political conversation is, "follow the money." It's more than that in today's environment, we also have to, "follow the power." In this episode we look at a number of articles where we need to follow the power and sometimes follow the money.

Episode 302: Out of Control

0 comments
Well, I managed to forget to post this episode to the website for an entire week! There's really no excuse for that and I apologize. I could be snarky and blame it on the shutdown... but that'd be inaccurate.

It's extremely obvious that those making the decisions about what's being hit by the shutdown are picking the most painful aspects of government services to close. Thankfully, it appears that the American public isn't taking this, "cause pain and blame the other guy," technique all that well and there's not a lot the media can do to spin it.

The government shutdown is here and in full effect. It seems like, as with the sequester, administration officials are working to make it hurt the American people as much as possible. Democrats seem to be turning at best a malevolent stare at the people caught in the middle of a debate that should have happened years ago. At worst they appear to be actively working to come up with new ways to cause pain.

In all of this there are other things going on, but the antics of elected and appointed officials again capture our attention. In this episode we're going to talk about the shutdown, the not-so Affordable Care Act and other news items from the week. Articles for this episode:

Episode 291: Getting Away With It

0 comments
In this episode we talked about how elected officials, media outlets and others are, "getting away with it," when it comes to pushing their own agenda rather than doing what should be considered their jobs. From the Texas abortion law to the Justice Department/NSA and even Obama and the media regarding the George Zimmerman verdict and Stand Your Ground, they're still getting away with it!

Episode 289: Still News But Not In It

This was an interesting episode, with a few tangents and some good conversation. Being on vacation my schedule got thrown a bit so my apologies in posting it late.

We didn't get through all of the articles (when is this ever a surprise?) but we did talk about things that for one reason or another have been taken out of the limelight for whatever reason.

The title may seem a bit incomplete, but when you look at the articles for the week it makes sense.  Watching the news this week, I got the distinct impression that some would like history to be forgotten. Unfortunately it can't be, so in this episode we're going to look at stories that aren't exactly, "top of the list" for conversation.

Not that many other stories this week. It's been a slow news cycle I guess.

Episode 280: Communication Necessities

0 comments
Administrative comment: Continually apologizing for the late posts and then posting late the following week is getting a tad repetitive, so I'll explain rather than make excuses. There are some big things being planned for the podcast as well as a new endeavor. Nothing is going to change for quite some time (in Internet terms of time, at least), however if you're a blogger, podcaster or vodcaster that is interested in hearing more about the rumblings of an interesting project, contact me directly.

This week we talked about the things necessary for a good, civil conversation. We also identified the real definition of the concept and also what it is not. Civility does not equate with watering down or with changing a message just to make it palatable to a wide audience. If you want to hear more, listen to the podcast!

There are some required aspects for effective communication, whether the subject is politics, the weather or a shopping list. In this episode we're going to look at some news articles that are examples of where these are noticeably missing from one side or the other. Let's talk about them and see how we can improve the conversation!

Episode 279: Are They Even Trying?

0 comments
Another week, another late posting for an episode... I'm working not to make a habit of this, sorry again. This episode was a lot of fun, especially when it came to the jokes. I'm pretty sure we haven't had this irreverent of an episode in quite some time! Ken wasn't with us but Larry stepped in quite well.

We also had the chance to have a follow up conversation about home-schooling and some of the differences that were expressed between Larry and I. One of the great things about our show is the fact that we can disagree without being disagreeable and last week's episode left a something of a bitter taste that needed to be addressed.

Sometimes you look at the stories in the news and ask yourself, "are they even trying?"

Articles for Episode 274: Tactics

0 comments
Lately it seems like everything is being presented with some underlying tactical perspective. It's not about side or party, it seems more about staying in power and getting one in over the other guy. In this episode we're going to be talking about the tactics being employed by both political parties to achieve that goal. Whether it's for the good of the country or not is a different question that we'll try to raise as well.
