Episode 361: More Poor Choices

0 comments
I am not going to make the same poor choice I have for the past two episodes and think, "it's late, I'll post this later." We talked about some interesting poor decisions that have been made, some of them more than once. There were also some interesting tangents taken during the conversation. I swear I'm going to forward my emails to Joesf at some point in the future!

I'll admit it, anyone can make poor choices. When you're in the political "eye" those bad ideas can and will come back to haunt you. In this episode we're going to look at some recent decisions that will be regretted… in some cases sooner rather than later! We also talked about these back in June of this year with Episode 338 (Poor Choices).

As mentioned on the show, we're going to be pushing our Facebook page more this year. We are also asking folks to support us by listening to the show on Red State Talk Radio or Stitcher.com. Articles for this episode:

It's the beginning of the Christmas (or whatever holiday you prefer to celebrate, don't steal my thunder) Season and with that we are going to look at the insanity that is required or even expected. In this episode we're going to have a look at giving, taking and even some politics.

This is also the quasi-anniversary of the podcast! We are now rolling into our 8th season. There have been some bumps, some delays and a lot of growth over the years. Thank you to everyone for your continued support of this endeavor. Articles for this episode:

Sometimes people just have to be told when they're not welcome. In this episode, we're going to look at a variety of areas where people have had that message delivered in a number of interesting ways.

Episode 347: Jumping the Shark

0 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

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.

We're a little late on posting the episode this week. No mad libs but a lot of fun talking about the teachable moments that appeared in articles from the past month or so.

I'll be posting the words for next week's Mad Lib on Wednesday or Thursday. You can be a part of the show by adding your words! The more we get the more interesting the results can be!

In this episode we're going to focus on some teachable moments that have come up in the past few months. We're going back over a long period of time with these articles but they're still relevant today! No mad lib this week. Yes, some are disappointed but there were some personal items that prevented the proper execution of it this week.

Episode 263: Broken Standards

1 comments
Well, true to the subject there were lots of "broken" things to discuss.  It was an enjoyable time but also rather eye-opening when it comes to the American standards that seem to be in serious need of repair.

Please be sure to vote in our merchandise poll to identify those things you'd be willing to buy from the podcast.

Articles for Episode 256: Battle on the Homefront

0 comments
Another interview with a Veteran, this time with author and SEAL Carl Higbie, author of Battle on the Homefront.

 Ex-Navy SEAL Carl Higbie gives notice--and delivers a blueprint for success--to those who want to join him in saving the American Dream. Battle on the Homefront lays out his personal mission of saving the American Dream.

His mission is reminds Americans of what is important: tight focus on their own personal responsibility and accountability to shift the tide of the “progressively collapsing society” of the United States. “We are at a fork in the road. I returned from my tours of duty in the Middle East to a country I loved, but no longer recognized.

We've become an entitlements-centric society, and we can no longer afford for those of us working hard to foot the bill for those who are too comfortable accepting free money from the government. Let’s be honest. We all know someone who didn't even start looking for a job until his or her two years of unemployment was coming to an end. This insanity has to stop."

Well, this episode did run a bit off plan, however there was a lot of good conversation!  Instead of starting off right away with the normal flow of things, we began our show talking about the results of the Egyptian election.

I know, I know, the subject is somewhat nebulous, but with the range of articles we had this week, it was the best way to summarize them! We've got Kerry, Obama, the military, Holder, MSNBC, Romney, the NSA and even a cheapskate moment. This episode may end up a bit chaotic but we'll have fun getting it there, join us if you can. Recording starts at 8:30pm Eastern or you can listen any time at http://www.eastcoastconservative.com. Articles are posted at Here are the articles for the episode.
There was a lot going on in the news this week. I'm pretty sure I missed some things, but here are some other articles ripe for the commenting:

East Coast Conservative joins the SOPA Strike

0 comments
I have made the decision to "black out" the blog portion of the East Coast Conservative Podcast for the day in joining the "SOPA Strike".  You can find more information about this at http://sopastrike.com.

Why would a conservative podcast join in on something like this?  The answer is simple, it's not in an effort to promote piracy, it is in the simple fact that the legislation as written creates a set of federal powers that neither the Constitution nor the constituency would ever have thought of approving.  The legislation, as written, has the framework to create a form of legalized censorship that no individual or small business would have the finances or clout to overcome.

In short, the bills contain the ability for the freedom of expression, regardless of political or societal bent, to be censored.  This is at odds with the most basic freedoms that are guaranteed to all people.  Sites across the Internet have joined in with this protest and we are proud to add our voices to this day.

Okay, so the truth can sometimes be scary, especially when it reveals something other than what is considered politically correct or popular. Here we have a group of articles that point out the truth that some people would rather have avoided.
There were a lot of other articles that came up, including some interesting slants on the Occupy activities and official reactions and actions to them. They didn't make the list but of course we link to them in case you want to read them.
