It's time once again to look at articles that expose the bureaucracy and the chaos it creates! For a variety of reasons, these folks are busted! Sorry for the short notice on the delay and lateness of the show notes tonight, there's a lot going on in our household.

Episode 341: Yeah, They Went There

0 comments
Man, when I say that we went there, we went all the way there! This episode covers the map including subjects that were and were not included on our article list. We hit on presidential candidates, computer games, the belly-button inspection (aka Selfie) trend among American citizens... and even some of the things we meant to.

Sometimes we look at something and ask, "did they really 'go there'?" This generally means that whoever was talking or writing took the thought to an unexpected conclusion or thread. We do this a lot with our friend Joesf, actually! Tonight we're going to look at some articles outlining where the political left has been taking things. We'll see if they garner similar responses.

Episode 327: They're Not Even Trying

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.

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.

We have launched a fundraising campaign to take our podcast to the next level. The final goal of this campaign is $1,850 and will allow us 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 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

0 comments
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 302: Out of Control

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 300: Guns, Jobs and Money

0 comments
We had an excellent time talking with Assemblywoman Jane Corwin from New York.  A large amount of the conversation was spent discussing the New York SAFE Act but several other topics were covered as well.  While we didn't touch a single one of the articles on the list, we definitely covered the subject material very thoroughly.  It's interesting to hear the situation from the viewpoint of someone that's involved in the process.

If you want to learn more about Assemblywoman Corwin you can visit her website at JaneCorwin.com. The show notes also includes a short biography.

Tonight we are joined by a special guest, Assemblywoman Jane Corwin. Mrs. Corwin will be talking with us tonight about a variety of issues including the New York SAFE Act, Jobs, the New York economy and more. Along with the interview there are a number of other items that I've included in the show notes. We may or may not get to them, it all depends on the interview and the conversation around it. Articles for this episode:


More about Jane Corwin:

Jane Lewis Corwin was elected to the New York State Assembly on November 4, 2008 and represents what is now the 144th Assembly District.

Jane is a proud full-time mother of three, Melanie, Kellie and Will, and, like any mother, she wants to give our children the best opportunity for a successful future in any endeavors they which to pursue. She continues to work tirelessly in representing the voice of her community in Albany so our children have those opportunities and are not forced to relocate due to a struggling economic and business climate.

Since being elected in 2008, Jane has stood firm in her message of fiscal conservatism, accountability for lawmakers, and focusing on growing our upstate economy by supporting small businesses.

Episode 298: Mind Your Own House

0 comments
For this episode and the next we're 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 Constitution.  Our original plan was to cover all of the amendments in one show but it was decided to stretch them over two shows to give the concepts a modicum of justice.

It was definitely an interesting conversation.  I don't think there is one that every person on the call agreed with but it brings out the way the country has changed substantially since its founding.  The proposals in the book bring up the discussion points that have been buried in today's politically correct environment.

Be sure to be available for our 300th episode! As I hinted at during the podcast, we'll have a special guest 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. For this episode the conversation is going to pivot around Mark Levin's proposed Liberty Amendments and some news stories that fit in neatly with his suggestions. Articles for this episode:
It's been a very busy week for me and the twitter feed has suffered because of it. Here are some other articles to look at:

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.

Articles for Episode 295: Progessive Infection

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.

For whatever reason, there are always news stories that draw a "ho-hum" response from folks. That's unfortunate because the stories they tell paint a clear picture of the machinations of the left. We're going to talk about them and see what kind of response we get from our group tonight.

Articles for this episode:
There were other articles that drew attention this week, however there's not enough time to discuss them in the podcast itself. Here they are; if you want to comment on them feel free!
