Articles for Front Porch Political Talk #4: Focus on Important Things

No comments:
The political games are back in full force and it's time to up everyone's "chill pill" prescriptions. While voices on the right (and some closer to the middle) are mounting their especially tall equines about the latest gaffe and sound byte, there are some major items that need to be discussed. We're going to look at some of those articles in this episode and try to ignore the honey-pot activities that seem to be captivating the mainstream.

Articles for Front Porch Political Talk #3: Freedom to be Ignorant

No comments:
There is always talk of freedoms and exercising rights in our country. What many people don't recognize is the fact that folks do have the right to maintain a level of ignorance. This has been perpetuated by governmental actions, a growing media and control of the news cycle. In this episode we are going to look at some articles that point this out.

Well, it seems that of my articles we didn't have a whole lot of noise. It was an energetic conversation to say the least!

Articles for Front Porch Political Talk #2: Serious Ponderings and Noise

No comments:
As we continue the transition into the new podcast, we take an episode to once again try and vet the important articles from those that are just so much more frothing at the mouth. To assist with this process we've got articles from both sides and are going to work on better identifying distinguishing characteristics during the show.

We are still working on the site and my own schedule has not lent itself to implementing comprehensive site changes yet. Thank you again for your patience as we make the shift to the new show. Articles for this episode:

Episode 363: Beginning to End

No comments:
This was a great summary show for us and for the year. There was also a big announcement that folks will start to see beginning tomorrow. Yes, I'm late on this episode and yes I have a good excuse. Two of them actually…

First, it's New Years and work is super busy. Second, it's the end of the line for our podcast under the title of "East Coast Conservative Podcast". Beginning with the first episode of 2015, there are a number of changes that are going to happen:

  • Show Title is changing to the Front Porch Politics Show.
  • Recording time will be starting at 9:00pm instead of 8:30pm.
  • Work is beginning on integration with a sponsorship model for content.  The more sponsors we get, the more content we can produce.

Click Here to download the podcast, or listen using the Blubrry player (the blue ball on the right of the page).

Thank you so much for continuing to support the show!  I'm making these changes "in-place" in order to keep the history of the East Coast Conservative Podcast alive but there will be a new site and other resources released as soon as New Year's Insanity is done with.

We would be remiss not to look back at the events of 2014 in this last episode of the year. Things aren't looking positive but they need to be remembered.

Episode 355: Once It's There

No comments:
This is one of those shows that you have to listen to more than once. Our goal was to talk about things that, once implemented, have proven very difficult to dislodge. The conversation didn't go quite the way it was expected but in the end became a very strong example of just that fact. It's also an example of where the participants in the podcast can have a disagreement and remain civil about it.

Articles for Episode 355: Once It's There

No comments:
There is a concept with government that, "once something's in place, it's almost impossible to remove." That's not always the case but in this episode we're going to run with that theme. The articles we've got on tap point out programs, actions and mindsets that need to be adjusted before they are ingrained in America's mindset.

Articles for this episode:
More articles that I could fit in the regular list but worth reading!

Articles for Episode 353: Say That Again?

No comments:
We see them every week, articles that don't fit the narrative and stories so absurd you wonder if they're planted for distraction. Generally only a few sneak by but they do crop up. In this episode we're going to discuss some articles like that. These stories shed light on concepts so far off what the media wants to broadcast that they make you do a double-take.

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 351: Filtering Distractions

This one was another fun show to record but very late in posting to the site. We got through most of the articles in the list and disagreed somewhat on what is considered a distraction.

Revisiting another theme from the past, this time we're looking at distractions that are being thrown around. Ignore the obvious, there are deeper issues that deserve the airtime.

Articles for Episode 350: Doing Their Job

We've talked about this in the past but the articles for this week call for another inspection of job descriptions and effectiveness. There are a few different areas that we are going to touch on and they should prove to be interesting at least!

Episode 348: Doing Hard Work

No comments:
This episode was actually more difficult to post than most. That's not because of technical issues but rather because I think this one sets a record for how off-base the show premise was from the articles. The conversation was even more off-base from the articles. We had a lot of fun with the conversation and there's a lot of information... just not the information I expected as the show notes were being compiled.

Articles for Episode 348: Doing Hard Work

No comments:
Confucius said, "Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life." In this episode we're going to look at politicians that might have picked the wrong career path. Politics can sometimes be hard work and if your heart isn't in it then it's definitely not for you.

After careful consideration, the Madlibs are being scratched from the lineup for now. It was too much work for not enough humor. Thanks to those that participated, we'll work on different openings as time goes on.

Episode 347: Jumping the Shark

No 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

No comments:
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.

Episode 346: Teachable Moments

No comments:
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!
