Episode 73: Outrageous Overtures

In tonight's show we talked about some of the outrageous things that have been said by the media as well as the Obama administration. From the reporting about the Tax Day TEA Parties to Obama's insistence that Republican's be more cooperative, there's a lot to fit that description! There was a good crowd in both the SecondLife and TalkShoe chat room, including Jayspari who joined us on the call with some good questions and discussion points. I was a bit off my game because of the long weekend and busy day today, but that's something for my personal blog at http://hatton.blogspot.com We also unveiled a new network that our podcast is a member of. The Conservative Minute Network is a cross-promotional network that provides it's members with audio clips from other like-minded podcasts that are fixed in length and format. Visit the network's site for more details. Items/articles discussed tonight:

Episode 72: Liberal Lies and Half-Truths

In tonight's episode we are going to take a look at ways the liberals twist the truth or fabricate blatant lies to advance their agenda. Wheter we are talking about the past or the present one can find places where the truth is changed to fit the agenda of the media. Full show notes will be posted at http://www.eastcoastconservative.com Tonight's show was all set to go up until about 45 minutes before it was time to start recording. We didn't change the subject but I was rather humbled after talking with a well-respected person about the topics and articles. The show focused on looking at the way truth can be made to be fiction, the effect that history can have in a conversaiton and the ways polls can be interpreted. On tonight's show:

Why I Picked Education

There was a poll today over at RepublicanOperative.com that asked, "What is THE most important issue to you in politics?" The choices were Abortion, Marriage, 2nd Amendment, Foreign Policy, Economy, Education, Healthcare and other Government-funded programs or Other. I put in education - because our education system has been overrun by the liberals for so long that now every student coming out of the public school system is educationally twisted. A better educated student, especially one that is taught civics, history and simple accounting would go a long way of reversing the build up of liberalism. More to the point a better educated student will hopefully see the liberal lies for what they are and know how to work to change them with all abandon. Kids today don't know how to work, they don't know how to balance a checkbook and they don't know what it means to be an American. Popular culture has created this "me" generation that is self-centered to an extreme. Consider the email I received from a friend of mine:
My son has a Xbox 360 and iTouch and ATV 250. He is pretty set. He is turning 15 on the 20th and plays high school baseball 6 days a week he doesn't have time for fun unfortunately.

We have an educational system that tells kids that there are no losers in the game of life and bullies parents into accepting their socialist indoctrination on fear of peer retribution on the child. We also have parents that push kids into so many different activities it's not healthy. And then we bribe our kids with stuff. I'm a parent of two - my daughter is 6 and my son is 4. My wife and I have worked hard to actually parent our kids rather than let them just run us ragged. We have to bite our tongues when it comes to some family members that think their homes are little democracies where the kids actually have a voice in what they eat, how often they play on the computer or when they can have candy. The most hilarious thing is the reactions we get from other parents when we talk about this.

Episode 71: Pushing the Boundaries of Law and Decency

A really good show tonight with lots of input and a lot of information that can not go forgotten! We were joined in TalkShoe by Jim and Kirk of The Zoo Radio Show as well as Debra JM Smith of Informing Christians. In this episode we are discussed some of the statements that have been made by liberals in the last week. With these statements, they have managed to stretch the boundaries of decency and legality. We'll talk about things like the statement made by the new Dean of the Episcopal Divinity School regarding the sacrament of Abortion, Geithner's statements about the power of Treasury to fire CEOs. We also talked about the Fed's different grabs for power in print, speech, ownership, wages, contracts and the Internet. Articles discussed in tonight's show include:
