Episode 303: Cracks in the Facade

0 comments
Yet again we have a case of an episode post lagging the recording by a week... I have plenty of reasons but again I apologize.  Maybe I should take a pay cut...

It turns out that folks didn't really disagree with the premise of this episode, that more and more of the American public are starting to see through the cracks at what's really going on in Washington.

Articles for Episode 303: Cracks in the Façade

There is so much media coverage about the failing health care websites and continued shutdown that we're going to be looking at other things in this episode. We're looking deeper, past the posturing and endless press conferences at some of the signs that the government is starting to crack.

Be sure, there are those stalwarts that will stick to their… positions. There are also articles that are coming out showing very disturbing events that, if done by anyone else, would generate calls for termination if not prison time. Their façade is starting to crack all over the place and even their usual cheerleaders can't patch everything up. Articles for this episode:
Those that watch our Twitter feed at ECConservative will notice that not all of the articles tweeted over the past week are showing up here this time. We had something of a "twittersplosion" and the articles below are the more relevant (or less repetitive) of the activity.

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.

Episode 230: So Much For...

Wow, "Sprummer" (spring/summer) is here and life has gotten a lot busier around here.  My sincere apologies for those that use the website to track the podcast, here is last week's episode!

There was a lot of fun to be had with the concept of applying the phrase, "so much for..." to each of the articles discussed in this episode.

When the show notes get put together for an episode, normally there is a common theme. This time it's more of a common phrase applied. Tonight we've got a number of items to discuss that cover a wide range of topics.

 Here are the articles, like I said, the subject range is pretty broad tonight!
More interesting reads, just not enough time to cover them all!

Episode 195: This is Supposed to be Organized?

This was a fun episode to record and, as has been the case lately, we didn't get through all of the articles!  There's a lot to discuss beyond the items we managed to cover here.  Be sure to check out the show notes for the articles and video we reference in the show.

Two links I mentioned that I'd add when I posted the show; first was for an article written by one of our listeners and posted here in October of last year entitled The Tipping Point.  The second was for a sci-fi short I recently listed to over on EscapePod, entitled Union Dues – Sidekicks in Stockholm which I listened to and then heard about the September 17 stuff.

We often hear the President referred to as a, "community organizer." Unfortunately, I think he may have lost his skills in the organization department long ago, as the articles we have on tap for this episode point out a large amount of confusion and discontent, even within his own power base.

Also, you may notice a poll on the right-hand sidebar of the site. We're looking at a new way to create high-quality silk-screened t-shirts at an affordable cost. It's my own opinion that the shirt designs may sell better if we don't rely on an outside service for the production and delivery. Unfortunately for that to work we need to know what kind of demand we have from our listeners. Please take a moment to answer the poll before it closes on 9/19 so we can get a good idea of what folks want. Thanks!

Episode 128: Smoking, Voting, Spending and Judging

In this weekend's show we are joined Bob and Brandon, hosts of the Laid Off Podcast. For the subject, we've got some interesting Marijuana stories as well as a recap of the President's visit to Buffalo and where the elections seem to be headed.

This was a really fun show tonight! We actually had to drop the articles that we had about Buffalo and the Kagan nomination to stay close to our time limit. We also had a lot of interaction with the folks in SecondLife as well as in the Talkshoe chat room.

Episode 89: Angry Mob or Concerned Citizens?

0 comments
Tonight's show is going to have to center on a few things that we've talked about before but have to be touched on again. First off, some updates to things that we've talked about before. Also, the events of this past week cannot go without some discussion. We've been called an angry mob and been asked to snitch on our neighbors... and still people don't see the actions of the administration as dangerous. This episode is being released unedited - there are some distractions and one restart but to be honest that's one of the things you have to deal with when recording "live". Maybe it's part of that raw, angry mob mentality but I'm going to leave it in this week. We now have a discussion forum at RepublicanOperative.com thatyou can access it by going to http://www.republicanoperative.com/forums/ecc-podcast-episodes/. Also, our facebook page is up and running and of course we have our store at Printfection.com/eccstuff. Thank you for your continued support and participation with the show.

Episode 65: Call me A Coward One More Time

0 comments
I had to start the show tonight with a comment that I received via IM - that a friend of mine is getting more and more hostile when it comes to politics and where the Democrats are taking this country.

 My comment to her, and in general, is that while Thomas Jefferson did say "I hold it that a little rebellion now and then is a good thing, and as necessary in the political world as storms in the physical", he was also talking in a time when people did not have the right to express themselves. As with war and taxes, the way we must conduct ourselves in the return to Conservative principles must be thought about carefully. 

Tonight we paid special attention to the statement of Eric Holder, who called the American people "cowards" when it came to race issues. Ken and I discussed his comments and the absurdity of them at length. In addition we brought in the comments of Lawernce Fishbourne from The View to get another interesting take on the comments and the "state of the races" as he saw them. After that spirited conversation we decided to mention the slipping memory of Senator Burris, who admitted that he did try to raise money for Blagojevich and that now he's done with the media. Ken's only reaction to this - it's Chicago politics, why are people surprised? Finally we did have time to talk for a few minutes about the Mortgage Bailiout and try to understand the what's and why's of this plan.

We had to mention the 4 minute rant by Rick Santelli and talk about the concept of what the bill is proposing and how the "group A" foreclosures are affecting the "group B" home values. In order to close on a good note, the home owners in the neighborhood affected by the crash of flight 3407 are going to be allowed back into their homes soon. Also, the people in charge of the mainly volunteer recovery effort have been approached by organizations asking how they were able to so effectively organize resources! Thanks to all who joined in and listened in! If you want to send comments, please email them to conservativepodcast@gmail.com or post them on the web site.
