There are a lot of times when we can only guess at the intentions of others aren't exactly clear. In other cases, like those in the articles for this episode, the veil can thin or be lifted. We're going discuss these in this episode.

There has been an unexpected change for the podcast's presence in Second Life. We are getting more settled into our new home at Cheertopia as well as an outpost on the mainland in Ello. There have also been some delays on other initiatives as a more comprehensive plan is put in place for the show.

Front Porch Political Talk Episode 9: Forcing Their Opinions

No comments:
Another episode, another great conversation! We didn't agree on every issue and that's okay because we talked about the articles withot requiring everyone to be in lock-step. We spent a lot of time talking about Bitcoin and the regulation of that as well as how Planet Fitness might have caused some angst in its own customer base. Those weren't the only things on the agenda, so listen in to hear the whole show!

Articles for Front Porch Political Talk #9: Forcing Their Opinions

No comments:
When looking at the news there are times when it's painfully obvious that agendas and opinions are being pushed. In this episode we are focusing on articles that show this in a number of different ways.

There has been an unexpected change for the podcast's presence in Second Life. We say goodbye to Sunset River as the home of the Republican Party of SL and hello to a consolidated location on Cheertopia. Outside of SL we are also finalizing the options for folks to subscribe using either Patreon or Joyride. Articles for this episode:

Episode 357: Hearing Something Different

No comments:
There were some new things said and some great conversation points in this episode! We had a lot of fun trying not to say the same things that the other shows are.

I mentioned during the show but I'll put it here as well… we are taking a break next weekend. This means that our next scheduled episode will be the Sunday before Thanksgiving.  That should put us to the start of the new season as well!

We end our show with the tag, "different words in a different order." In this episode we're going to look at articles that break stereotypes in some cases and enforce them in others. It's going to be a fun conversation!

Articles for this episode:
(Edit:) One of our listeners also brought this up in an email to me at the same time that I was putting together the show.  We'll look at this article as well: GOP official goes off on NAACP for ignoring Mia Love and Tim Scott

This week's "extra articles" are truly worth reading! I wish I had time or a subject that I could include them in so please, if you have comments on these share them!

Episode 348: Doing Hard Work

No comments:
This episode was actually more difficult to post than most. That's not because of technical issues but rather because I think this one sets a record for how off-base the show premise was from the articles. The conversation was even more off-base from the articles. We had a lot of fun with the conversation and there's a lot of information... just not the information I expected as the show notes were being compiled.

Articles for Episode 348: Doing Hard Work

No comments:
Confucius said, "Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life." In this episode we're going to look at politicians that might have picked the wrong career path. Politics can sometimes be hard work and if your heart isn't in it then it's definitely not for you.

After careful consideration, the Madlibs are being scratched from the lineup for now. It was too much work for not enough humor. Thanks to those that participated, we'll work on different openings as time goes on.

Episode 347: Jumping the Shark

No comments:
We managed to talk about jumping the shark without doing so ourselves (unless you count the madlibs, I don't). It was fun but if you're Obama-sensitive you might want to turn away. There are a lot of interesting nuggets, including mentioning of an NPR story about the EU's regulation on vacuum cleaners and Happy Days.

For those of you who missed the MadLib during the recording, here are the results:
A recent scary poll shows that the majority of people are terrified of public governing.  They would rather walk across burning jacobites or swim in goat-infested waters than give a speech in front of nuns.  This hearty fear can be overcome in five easy voters:
1. Organize all of your gym teachers on a piece of plank.
2. Remember to start your speech with a funny Senator.
3. When speaking, look your audience straight in the feet and speak in a strong and stupid voice.
4. Be simple.  Never use damaged words that are over the audiences eyes.
5. Always keep a pitcher of mercury next to you, in case your shin goes dry.

Articles for Episode 347: Jumping the Shark

No comments:
The concept of Jumping the Shark is used when a production does something extraordinary in order to attract attention but instead signals its decline. The phrase came from the Happy Days episode in which Fonzie literally jumped a shark in a stunt.

These days, the term applies to almost anything and tonight we're going to look at politicians that have been doing an excellent job at it.

Episode 344: Your Policy is Showing

No comments:
I'm not sure if we made our point tonight or not. We definitely highlighted some policies that are showing and even brought up the concept of action in Iraq as a way to distract the media from domestic news. That said, there were a few odd tangent circles that might make folks look at certain concepts from a different angle.

Two shout-outs from this episode. First, to Joesf a mote in the eye award for playing devil's advocate so perfectly on the college age free speech concept. Also, a mention of Rat Nation which is a fun blog I've started reading. They are where I saw the article about the Tiny House movement mentioned in this episode.

Every now and then we have to take a break from questioning the intelligence or sanity of various positions and point out the policy, or at least the perception of policy, that is laid out in the news. The democrats have done a fine job showing us where their priorities lie and in this episode we're going to look at those. Articles for this episode:

Episode 323: Gearing Up Again

No comments:
This was an interesting episode, and by that I mean that it followed the initial plan of episodes. What made it interesting was the disagreements and in some cases heated exchanges that came out in response to some of the articles. Never let it be said that everyone on the call always agrees... but then again if we were all robots there wouldn't be anything to talk about!

Articles for Episode 323: Gearing Up Again

No comments:
It seems that the media can't wait for the 2014 elections to be done in order to start talking about 2016. We're going to oblige them and talk about the different candidates and incumbents and what they're talking about. There's also the current administration's foreign policy to discuss as things are gearing up for another showdown of mismatched wits.

Episode 317: In Plain Sight

No comments:
So many things that are hidden in plain sight and so little time to talk about them! We had a great time and a wonderful turnout for this episode. It seemed like the description mentioned "conspiracy theory" and everyone decided to come see if we would go off the deep end. We didn't, in fact the articles we discussed were all legitimate and verifiable. Where to go with this information is completely up to you, the listener.

Articles for Episode 317: In Plain Sight

No comments:
While the current administration and their friends in the media have given conspiracy theorists plenty of fodder to dig for hidden agendas and treacherous double-speak, there are plenty of things that are right out in plain sight to be worried about. In this episode we are going to be looking at some of the items that have come up lately that would give even the most grounded realist pause for consideration.

Episode 315: Freezing Out

No comments:
Suffice to say that there was nothing frosty about this episode beyond the weather references and the points that we were trying to make. There were also come interesting learning points about the history of education and the impact that it has on the perception of students about America's past. The weather also had an impact on the posting of this episode. We're thawing out now!

We're extremely close to reaching our goal of joining the Boost radio network! We only need to get to $400 to fully fund the first quarter's participation. If you want to help take the podcast to the next level, please click the "GoFundMe" button on the right.

Articles for Episode 315: Freezing Out

No comments:
The news seems to be tied to the weather these days, with frigid temperatures and a cold political scene (though those could be reversed). In this episode we're going to look at ways that conservative voices and the words of those that want to see something more than gridlock or status-quo are being treated. There are also examples where the left seems to be hogging the spotlight with sadistic glee. Hopefully we can bolster some ways to address the discrepancy.

While our fundraising campaign did not meet the level needed to join the Boost radio network for the first quarter, the fundraiser is still on! We are in discussions with the network about an abridged quarter, so the push is still on! If you would like to donate use the link on the right hand side of the site.

Episode 304: Thought Police

No comments:
This had to be one of the more vocal episodes that we've had in a while. Definitely on-topic and thought provoking! We didn't manage to make it through most of the examples and some of them appear to be, "business as usual." We also were thrilled to welcome Naj back to the show after a bit of a hiatus.
