Episode 328: Say What?

In another case of, "watch what you say," this episode was fun and informative!  As it turns out, there are many different scenarios where what is said does not match up with the actions or policies implemented.

Episode 315: Freezing Out

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!

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 314: Reviewing the Year

This was an interesting review of the year with some new news, some old news and a bit of a diversion. We ended up spending time talking about the upcoming year's TV shows and what they represent in our country. Ken wasn't able to make the show due to a traffic jam but he did make it home safe and sound.

We've officially launched our funding campaign to join the Boost Network in January! We have a few days left to get to the first goal of $400 in order to officially join the network.

It's the last episode of the year and we're taking the time to look at some of the larger items that hit our discussions in 2013. There are new elements to some and reminders that others are still unresolved. This promises to be an interesting episode all around!

Our fundraising campaign to take our podcast to the next level is still going! We are still shy of the $400 needed to make the first quarter in order to join the Boost Radio Network. This represents a huge change for us and we're excited to see the results. If you would like to donate use the link on the right hand side of the site.

Episode 299: Mind Your Own House Part 2

0 comments
As promised, we continued going over the amendments proposed in Mark Levin's The Liberty Amendments. It's an interesting collection of history and suggestions for cementing the spirit of the founders back into the Constition. Again there wasn't one that every person on the call agreed with but the book brings out the way the country has changed substantially since its founding.

Be sure to be available for our 300th episode! We are going to be joined by Assemblywoman Jane Corwin for the show to talk about New York, Gun Control and what's going on to address the overreach that has happened in the state. It's going to be a special episode for a special milestone!

There's the phrase, "Mind Your Own House," which is typically uttered to someone that is too busy calling out the failings of another while their own situation isn't much better. We seem to be in that state in the US now. We are continuing the conversation around Mark Levin's proposed Liberty Amendments and some news stories that fit in neatly with his suggestions.

Very light on the Twitter feed again this week. Here are some other articles for your enjoyment and education.

Episode 296: Roles

0 comments
This was a rather interesting episode. We didn't make it through all of the articles but that's not a big surprise. The articles clearly pointed out a point that government has expanded well beyond its originally designed role set.

I did assign a bit of homework with this episode. Write down the job descriptions for elected officials you can think of without looking them up, then go online and check your work. I mentioned President, Federal Senator and Representative, State Senator and Representative and Governor. If you have other offices you want to look up feel free!

When we look at current events through the lens of history, we see that that changes in our country have come from many places. Both those politicians that would push a Progressive agenda and citizenry that are either idly or actively complicit are to blame.

If you ask the "man on the street" what the job description for various elected offices are, I'm pretty sure you would get a wide array of answers. The same is true if you asked candidates or elected officials. The sad thing is, most of them would be incorrect. In this episode we're going to talk about the roles of various offices as they have been interpreted and implemented. Articles for this episode:
I filtered out the Twitter article list a bit for this episode. These are the other articles that seemed to scream, "read me!"

Episode 295: Progessive Infection

0 comments
Every week when I post a new episode I try to come up with a different way to say that it was a fun one. While this week is no different, it wasn't just fun it was also educational. Looking at the current activities and how they all represent symptoms of this Progressive infection that has been eating at the concepts of our Constitutional founding has been an eye-opening experience. We even have to admit that many of the political planks espoused by both parties are rife with the stain!

Something else that I do in every episode is explain how folks can participate. This will become even more important as we continue to look at this infection and expose it to the light of day. Considerate and civil discourse is needed in every episode and all are invited to participate! Even if you can't join in for our Sunday night recording sessions, take some time and share your thoughts, even if they are simply to agree with us.

After my comment last week on the supposed good intentions of those proposing government action, I would be remiss in not talking about the opposite. This week we're going to talk about the counter to the concept of government intervention and discuss articles where the government has gone to lengths and depths that it was never intended to be found.

I've had a very eye-opening experience that I also wanted to share. As a part of my Audible subscription I've been listening to The Liberty Amendments by Mark Levin. In the book, he outlines Constitutional Amendments aimed at bringing the Federal government back into the shape originally considered by the Founding Fathers. More than that, he brings in Federalist and Anti-Federalist writings, court decisions, other historical backup and compares that to the actions of the government since it's founding.

More from the twitter feed this week.  There's actually other articles to be found there but I trimmed them down to a manageable gaggle for reading and commenting.

Episode 294: They Think They Know

0 comments
We had a fun time talking about what people thought they knew… on a variety of different issues. In most of the cases the concensus was that the people involved didn't think much beyond the "good idea".

One thing I mentioned in the intro that I want to reiterate here in text. That is your opportunity to be a part of the podcast. We don't care where you are or your "stated political leanings" so long as you're willing to join in the conversation and keep things civil. Our podcast isn't strictly about the East Coast, nor does everyone that participates have to be a conservative! If you feel you've got something to add and can verbalize it well, feel free to call in.

The recommended book for this week is "Sh-t My Dad Says" by Justin Halpern. It's an interesting look and a reminder to delve beyond the gruff exterior of people around us. Despite what Joesf says in the recording, we're not sponsored by Rosetta Stone... as funny as the bit was!

I have long thought that most government actions, especially when it comes to domestic policy, start with a nugget of good will or a good idea and then becomes corrupted as it makes its way through the system. In this episode we're going to be examining the actions that could cause such changes to happen to a good idea as to make them profoundly bad.

On rare occasion a story will break that other outlets don't get a chance to talk about before we do. With the timing of the Zimmerman verdict, we actually have the opportunity to be ahead of the "big names" with our thoughts and comments/

In this episode we are going to look at the results of the case as well as a number of other stories that focus on the American justice system.

Articles for this episode:
There are some other stories that caught our eye this week. Had the timing been different they may have been the main discussion. They deserve our attention as well, unfortunately that attention will have to be relegated to the comments section. Here are some other reading suggestions:

Episode 287: Twisted Reality

A lively conversation from the start! Some of us were worried that the strange tales our articles explained would make heads melt while others said it was nothing out of the ordinary. Take a listen for yourself and decide which!

My apologies for the late posting. The end of the school year has had our schedules a bit twisted.

As the news week started for this episode, I felt my reality getting turned upside down. The articles for this episode reflect some of the reasons for that. We've got examples of people sounding like their ideological opposites and a view of legal rights that downright scary.

This was another week where we could have gone several ways with the episode. Some other educational and disturbing news stories that deserve your attention and comment:

Episode 284: For Their Own Good

It seems I managed to pull in articles that got everyone's blood boiling! This episode has to be one of the more lively in some time, and not because of bad jokes. All of our callers and a few folks in SecondLife had thoughts to add to the conversation

In our next episode we'll be talking with Mike Garcar, a Field Director for the Ohio College Republican Federation, Romney campaign worker and upcoming author. We'll be talking about his observations about engaging the millennial generation.
