Episode 301: What Are We Fighting For?

0 comments
Most of the time we welcome input from people of all sides, in this episode we had to take the time to discuss a variety of areas that we feel are important enough to fight for. These weren't points for debate, rather they are things that we see the government, the democrats and the media are doing to try and change the nature of our country.

In our last episode we had a great time interviewing Jane Corwin, a conservative Republican Assembly member in New York. She pointed out many things that she is working or even fighting for in Albany. In this episode we're going to take a step back and look at the larger stage to see what else is being fought for (or against) at the national level. Articles for this episode:

Articles for Episode 298: Mind Your Own House

0 comments
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!"

Articles for Episode 273: It's About Control

A common phrase in the gun control debate is, "it's not about guns, it's about control." That rings true there, but it's true in almost every area the government is taking special interest in these days. In this episode we're going to talk about a number of different areas where this is starting to be more plain.

Back to our regular time, we've got a bit of a doozie planned. Heading into the end of the year we see the status quo acting exactly as expected. There are things that need to be dealt with both domestically and abroad and the handling of it leaves much to be desired.

Before we get into the articles, I have to ask a favor. Please go to Red State Talk Radio's 2012 Talk Show of the Year poll and vote for our show. We can't do this without your support. Here are the articles for this episode:

A lot of fun in this episode, with David Oatney as well as a round-table of Shorahmin, Toawa, Joesf and Tom from Secondlife.  David is a Tennessee State House Examiner, Western Religion and Elections examiner for Examiner.com. We didn't manage to get through all of the articles but rather jumped through two different sets of subjects.

I've said the phrase, "words mean things," for quite some time. This time it was the subject for the show.  We got rather side-tracked on a couple of articles but made the point.

Episode 171: Paying Attention to the Edges

2 comments
It’s time again for us to look at the news stories that are being overshadowed by Japan, Lybia and the associated fallout.

Tonight was a fun show and an example of how Ken and I don’t always agree. We had fun talking about a number of different issues, pontificating the concepts of 2012 and got stuck on the concept of what to do about the Somali pirates.

Episode 154: Is Anybody Listening?

Sometimes I look at the news and ask myself this question - is anyone truly listening to what the news folks are saying? We have an ethics conviction, a terror acquittal, waivers, pat-downs and outright admissions of failure and all people can focus on is the royal engagement!

What’s Left to Say?

0 comments
by SecondLife Author Shoramin Femto
Obama and his team of carefully selected insurgents have been inspected, commented, identified, and revealed. He and they have few secrets left to hide. Their agenda is clear. It is nothing less than the gutting and abandonment of the Constitution; all this in the service of the destruction of the capitalist system. Numerous commentators have explored the implications and pointed their fingers. The only remaining support outside
their revolutionary movement lies with those who share that agenda, most of the media and the entitlement generation.

During the final stretch of this election season, we must repeat the warnings and their unveiled comments and actions constantly. On election day, no one must allowed to forget things like the Mao ornaments on the White House Christmas tree, Van Jones, ACORN, and the SEIU and Black Panther thugs; all endorsed and supported by AG Holder and the White House. But ... is there anything new to say? It seems that Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh have fully exhausted the subject of the left’s evil intentions?

So, besides ensuring that no one can forget as they vote in November, what else should we be doing? I’m afraid that we are playing chess one move at a time without looking ahead. We are generals who only plan for victories with no thought to what comes after. (Think Iraq, Rumsfeld, and Tommy Franks here.) We should seriously and publically be thinking about what to do if the right a) Takes both houses of congress, b) takes just the House of Representatives, c) gets its ass kicked again.

We should be making a list and checking it twice. What are the major problems? What should be our goals? What is within our reach? What should come first? So let’s start with the list. Here are my choices for the top.

The United Nations: This is the most pressing problem we have. We should assume an observer status only and stop all funding until it rectifies its many problems. Congress has the power to do this through its checkbook. If the UN doesn’t correct itself over the next two years, the next administration should leave the UN entirely and insist that they move the damn thing to Geneva or Mecca.

Iran: We should take out their nuclear capability completely using what ever means the job requires (Boots and bombs). When they have the A-Bomb, they will use it. Remember, they are insane. Next we should aggressively persuade Iran’s client states (Syria, Lebanon, and Afghanistan) that they have made a very bad choice. I doubt that Obama has the balls or inclination but congress should go on record supporting any nation that undertakes these actions.

Energy: We should place a substantial import tax on all imported energy ($30.00 a barrel sounds right). This will encourage domestic production and drive international prices down. Our costs will rise only slightly. All generated revenues should be invested into rapidly building nuclear plants based on Traveling Wave Technology. This construction should proceed as a national emergency and be managed as a critical defense project. No preference to union labor should be allowed. Obstructing construction in any way should be a serious felony resulting in long prison terms. Again, congress has the power to do this.

Labor/Management Relations: We should pass a national Right-to-Work law making all union membership optional. Coercion to join or not to join unions should be made a serious felony resulting in long prison terms. This too is within the power of congress.

That’s my list. Clearly there are other things in need of attention. But these have the shortest fuse in my opinion. Note I did not include the economy. My suggestion… leave it alone do nothing. We’ve screwed it up enough.

Lastly, all these plans MUST include effective and firm responses for when the world (Friends and enemies) try to thwart us or dissuade us. In many cases our response should be to just ignore them. But we should be prepared for very serious countering moves that will cost us severely. We should be prepared to pay for our own lunch and to retaliate in Kind. For example, what should happen if the left stages a general strike and most unions comply? What should we do if Iran blows up the Vatican or invades Iraq? What should be our response when/if Saudi Arabia unleashes jihad from its radical mosques planted in the US to punish us for loss of oil revenues? All these scenarios must be fleshed out and understood. And we should make plans several
moves ahead that do not include caving, apologizing, or surrendering.

Episode 142: Talking Themselves Out of a Job

0 comments
It seems like the Democrats are hell-bent on talking themselves out of a job... at least that is what it seems like, based on the articles we have to discuss tonight!

We had a great turn-out tonight, both in SecondLife and in Talkshoe. Thanks to everyone that showed up to be a part of the podcast!

Bikini-clad strippers protest church in rural Ohio (Courtesy of listener Alan Dennis)

  • What do you make of the offers of assistance for the protestors by the church members? Were they simply showing compassion or trying to look good for the media?


Philadelphia wants bloggers to start paying taxes

  • Philadelphia is trying to enforce a business tax against hobbyists. What are the chances that other cities will try to follow suit?
  • Why would a city try to impose on a group that, as one person in the story mentions, "picked the one group that is guaranteed to make a public stink about it in ways that, for example, high school kids mowing lawns couldn't."?


Six Months to Go Until The Largest Tax Hikes in History

  • Should we look for a congressional call for a raising or abolishing of the Alternative Minimum Tax?
  • These increases include the front-loading of taxes for "Obamacare." Some elected officials have spoken to the concept of defunding the process. What does that then do with the taxes levied here?
  • What happened to the statement that the Obama administration has made about not paying more taxes?
  • On his show today, Bob Brinker identifies the mosque issue as a "red herring" as an attempt to distract the public from the fiscal issues. What other red herrings could they try to throw out?


Medicare drug plans may change for some (Hat Tip to FreedomProject.org)

  • Medicare officials dismissed the Avalere estimate without offering their own number. "Anybody who is producing that kind of analysis is simply guessing..." Does that mean that those officials are also guessing?
  • Does this add fire to statements by those on the right about what is in the health care bill or will it be hidden by the media?
  • How much of a bump do you think this will make in Tea Party or anti-incumbent sentiment numbers?


EDITORIAL: Obama administration indicts America (Hat tip to The Impeach Obama Campaign)

  • Can this be considered yet another apology by the Obama administration or is it another blame-Bush session?
  • The authors claim that the United States does not, by filing the report, "acknowledge commonality with states that systematically abuse human rights." How will other countries react to this report?
  • Some identify this report as a hit-piece by the Obama administration against Arizona. What authority does the UN have over a state or provience of a member state?
