Episode 158: And Miles To Go

Taking the title from a Robert Frost poem, it appears that Congress is not wasting a minute of their lame duck session before the "holiday" break. We've got quite a few things to discuss."

We had a good show this weekend, including what turned out to be a dodged bullet from a call-in and several refrences to popcorn... mmm, popcorn! There were many questions asked about how the repeal of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" would actually be implemented, including how Article 125 of the UCMJ would be impacted, what it would mean for fraternization rules and uniform design.

Episode 157: Sanctimonious Insanities

As the US approaches the insanity of Christmas shopping, I thought it would be fun to look at some other crazy things that have surfaced in the news. We also have to talk about the compromoise proposal between the President and the Republicans.

We opened the show with three "fun" stories, all related and all actually news. The biggest point was the breakdown of the President's briefing on the tax cut compromise and the fact that Bill Clinton had to come in to talk it up!

Episode 156: Enough!

It seems like there have been a few things coming to a boiling point with people. We had a swing of power at the midterms and now more things are starting to become rational... or are they? Tonight we discuss some articles where people are getting their "due" and others where they're almost there.

Episode 155: Pushing More Buttons

Tonight marks the beginning of our third year in the podcast! We celebrate by recording the show late and praying that everything comes together... which is how things started in the first place. Rather than ponder the past, we're looking at some current issues that are pushing more buttons with the general public.

Episode 154: Is Anybody Listening?

Episode 152: Eating Their Words

It's the weekend after the midterm elections and, as predicted and promised, the Republicans took back power in a huge way! This has left quite a few elected officials eating their own words. There is also a rather prevalent misconsception about what the elections actually meant that is being spread by the media at an alarming rate.

The Tipping Point - We’ve Been Here Before

by SecondLife Author Shoramin Femto


Despots, revolutionaries, and tyrants often come from different beginnings. They commonly begin their rise disguised as reasonable and law-abiding patriots. Their visible goal is to fix or heal some of societies many wrongs. And it’s all a noble under taking, a holy enterprise, in the service of the people.

They form co-ops, unions, community organizations, even political movements. And, they do good, lots of it. Wells are dug, roads repaired, clinics started and political campaigns begun. And they have success. Their movements become a rising wave. Soon there are many more parades and demonstrations than clinics and roads but no one notices. Along the way, it’s OK if a few “malcontents” get hurt or drop off the screen. It’s all for the movement. It happened in this country in 1966 - 1972, Venezuela a few years ago, and many other places you can name.

In most cases people eventually become worried. “Did they really do that? Did he really say that? I don’t trust them anymore. We need to do something.” And the “Movement” senses that it is approaching a high-water-mark. Soon they will reach the peak and be able to go no further. It’s “The Magic Moment, The Tipping Point”. It’s the moment that they have long anticipated – a moment that many have longed for. It’s the moment that Marx and Mao predicted. It’s the moment when they no longer need to work within the law. Lawfulness has carried them as far as they can go. It’s time for the next phase. They take to the streets and violence becomes a warning and a tool.

It happened in 19681. Our country descended into chaos. After the leftist rout in 1966, they took to the streets in huge violent waves. The peak came in 1968. The time is well characterized in the deaths of Martin Luther King Jr. and Robert Kennedy, and the 1968 convention riots in Chicago. The insurgents continued their efforts through the Carter years. The struggle only subsided when President Reagan finally lead us out. Sadly, it usually goes the other way. Instead of the defeat they found in 1980s America, they have recently succeeded grandly in Venezuela and the American 2008 election.

The current batch of American revolutionaries will reach their high-water-mark, their “Magic Moment”, this November. They will know that they cannot progress farther while staying marginally within the law. They have already begun the debate among themselves on what to do when the electorate turns against them once again. Some will want to return to 1968 or much worse. Others will counsel patience. They will want to wait for a better time. They will suggest waiting until 2012.

George Soros is now aiming past the 2010 elections and pumping millions into his propaganda outlets2. Juan Williams is swept aside to make room for Soros’ more radical voices. All this is now aimed at the all-holds-off struggle over the next two years.

America needs to prepare for the coming lawlessness achieving new heights. The SEIU and their ilk will no longer be fettered. Those who have waited desperately for the moment of violence will not be denied much longer. We will see a replay of the battles of the 60’s. Unless prepared, we cannot assume the same happy result.

Many times in the news, "we'll see you in court," is the response I hear from union leaders or activists.  It seems that the judiciary have more power than most elected officials.  To some, they can tell the sun to rise in the west.  Tonight we discuss a sampling of recent judicial activity and what it means to you and me.

Episode 147: Are we Justified?

Had to delay the publishing of lat night's show a bit - there were some technical issues beyond my control that kept the mixer from working.  Technical details aside, it was a fun show!  We actually ran out of time before we ran out of articles, so there are a few on the notes list that didn't make it into the episode.

We're almost a month away from the mid-term elections and it seems like every bit of new news on old things keeps crawling out.  We've got "Mad as Hell" Paladino, "I didn't do it" Democrats and "We're going to change" Republicans.  A lot of people are angry, many are indignant and quite a few are worried and weary about where November 3 will find us.  This and more will be discussed on tonight's show.

  • The Enraged vs. the Exhausted
  • "Pledge to America" Unveiled by Republicans (Full Text) (official site at Pledge.gop.gov)

Is Obama a Muslim?

By SecondLife Author QWERTY Beeswing


Obama’s religious affiliation has been a question since the beginning of his campaign for president. He claims to be a Christian but is that what we are seeing? Jesus Christ said, “By their fruits, ye shall know them.” If this is true then what can we make of the fruits in Obama’s life? What are his actions telling us?
There are several things that would lead us to believe that Obama is not a true Christian. His support for abortion and other things in society that are in strong contrast with Biblical teachings. These are hints to his lack of Christian faith. In June of 2006 he made reference to “The Sermon on the Mount”, 
    "Which passages of Scripture should guide our public policy? Should we go with Leviticus, which suggests slavery is ok and that eating shellfish is abomination? How about Deuteronomy, which suggests stoning your child if he strays from the faith? Or should we just stick to the Sermon on the Mount - a passage that is so radical that it's doubtful that our own Defense Department would survive its application? So before we get carried away, let's read our bibles. Folks haven't been reading their bibles."

Here, not only is he insulting to Christians but he also implies that the thought of practical application of the Bible is ludicrous. 
I don’t want to spend too much time disproving his Christian faith because I feel he does a good job of that on his own.
The real question is…is he Muslim?
Let’s look at some facts…
    In February of 2007 Obama was interviewed by the New York Times. He stated that the Muslim call to prayer was “one of the prettiest sounds on Earth”.  He then recited it "with a perfect [Arabic] accent," according to The Times!! 
    September 8, 2008, Obama slips up while being interviewed by ABC's George Stephanopoulos. He says 'my Muslim faith' in the interview!! 
    Obama has of yet to attend one National Day of Prayer event since his election but he clearly spends time at the White House observing Muslim religious holidays and practices such as his recent hosting of an Iftar dinner breaking the Ramadan fast.   
    He bowed to the King of Saudi Arabia and then lied about it afterwards.  
    He spent somewhere in the ballpark of $23 million promoting Kenya’s new pro-abortion, pro-Sharia constitution. (Sharia Law is the same law that is practiced in most Muslim countries. Sharia law encourages the harsh treatment of women among other civil rights abuses.) 
    Obama has also made disturbing statements about the United States denying it is a Christian nation. “Whatever we once were, we are no longer a Christian nation.” He’s also been noted as saying the U.S. is “one of the largest Muslim nations in the world.”  
A notable practice among Muslims is called taqiyya. This allows for total denial of the Muslim faith if necessary for Muslims while remaining faithful to Islam.
    {A} problem concerning law and order {with respect to Muslims in dar al-harb} arises from an ancient Islamic legal principle — that of taqiyya, a word the root meaning of which is "to remain faithful" but which in effect means "dissimulation." It has full Quranic authority (3:28 and 16:106) and allows the Muslim to conform outwardly to the requirements of unislamic or non-Islamic government, while inwardly "remaining faithful" to whatever he conceives to be proper Islam, while waiting for the tide to turn. (Hiskett, Some to Mecca Turn to Pray, 101.) 
    Volume 4, Book 52, Number 269; Narrated Jabir bin 'Abdullah: The Prophet said, "War is deceit." 
So you see…according to Islam he can deny his faith without consequence to deceive the infidel.
Over the few short months in office Obama has alienated Israel. Below is a verse from the Quran that gives instruction about relationships with Jews and Christians.
    From the Quran - 5:51 O ye who believe! Take not the Jews and the Christians for friends. They are friends one to another. He among you who ...taketh them for friends is (one) of them. Lo! Allah guideth not wrongdoing folk. 
If he’s not a Muslim, as he says, he’s doing a pretty good job of convincing the American people otherwise!! We can’t possibly know in all certainty whether he is or is not Muslim but as Jesus said “By their fruits, ye shall know them.”

Articles for Episode 144: Turning the Fold

Okay, so there's a pastor in Gainesville that (as of the writing of this intro) may or may not have burned Korans yesterday. I get it, but there's so much more news out there! In tonight's show we are going to talk about that and what's below the fold.

What’s Left to Say?

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 143: Yeah, They're Losing It

Tonight's show was a LOT of fun!  You're getting the unedited, as recorded version.  There is some chatter at the beginning about editing but things turned out that it truly didn't need any.

Click Here to download the show or open the Blubrry player on the right (the blue round thing). Thanks for listening!

Something else that we didn't really have was specific questions for most of the articles. That's okay though - there was a lot of audience participation and an lot of interaction when it came to the different articles.

Share your thoughts and answers in the comments for tonight's show! As I say in the podcast, if you like the show, blog about us and tell four friends and blog about us! If you didn't like tonight's show, we invite you back next week where you will hear different words in a different order.

Artcles for Episode 143: Yeah, They're Losing It

Here are the articles for tomorrow's show.  Join us for the live recording if you can!


Last weekend, I posted a commentary on the Hufffington Post Photo spread following Beck's rally.  I also received an article from a guest writer that said the same thing.  Tonight we're going to look at some numbers, statements and opinions that continue to make our point.

Opening & Local Stories:
Golfer's swing sparks 25-acre California blaze
Scott Picks State Lawmaker for Running Mate in Florida Governor Race

Attempting to threaten, harras or redefine their opponents:
Is the tea party becoming the new Grand Old Party?
AFL-CIO president to Sarah Palin: Change or be linked with McCarthyism
John Cusack Calls for 'Satanic Death' of Fox News, GOP Leaders

The truth comes out:
New rate hikes continue despite Obamacare overhaul
Proof These Bastards KNOW They're Doing the Wrong Thing

Voters and issues by the numbers:
Americans Give GOP Edge on Most Election Issues
AP-GfK Poll: Most attuned voters tilt toward GOP

They're Getting Desperate on the Left

You can tell someone is getting desperate in a debate or argument when they start name-calling and drop all pretense of trying to actually discuss policy and concept.  That is what has happened between the "left" and the Tea Party at this point.  Okay, Some might say that I'm writing this article a few months too late.  You may well be right.

It does not mean that I shouldn't write it!

Let's take the example I found today at a Huffington Post article titled Beck's Restoring Honor Rally: Rate the Teabaggers! (PHOTOS).  This 'Hot or Not' style line-up of pictures taken during today's events have been selected by the author/photagrapher to define his concept of the Tea Party.  Readers are further given the ability to rate the 'Patriotism' of the person or people pictured.

Seriously?  This is all that they can do?  Pick on people because of how they look at a rally.  I hear they're taking submissions at PeopleofWalMart.com too!

Okay, some of the pictures are funny.  I don't disagree with any of the shirts and the people are generally not posing.  What makes this comment-worthy is the fact that this guy took the time to pick on the people at the rally rather than comment on the rally.  He let others do that for him.  On the same site (of course, I would expect nothing less) I saw articles about turnout and interpretation of message by others.

In reading through the interviews and articles, I can sum them up with, "We went, didn't see many blacks.  Everyone was nice and we couldn't find anyone to back our concepts.  So instead, we'll focus on what (*insert name here*) has said in the past and how (*insert hate-conecept name here*) it was."  They don't even try to address the validity of the issue in most cases.  Even the title sets that tone from the very beginning.

This leads me to a simple conclusion - they know they've lost the argument.  Now comes the time when they have to attempt to invalidate the claims using insults, innuendo and false allegations.  This is why the recent t-shirt store went online with slogans that I refuse to reprint or link to.  There is no way that they can publically say, "no, America, the Federal Government has not grown too big."

Too many people already know that they are lying.

Episode 142: Talking Themselves Out of a Job

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!

Click Here to download the show or open the Blubrry player on the right (the blue round thing). Thanks for listening!

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?

Episode 141: Who Are You Going to Believe?

This weekend we are going to look at some statements that people are making and discuss who (or what) we do or don't believe.

Click Here to download the show or open the Blubrry player on the right (the blue round thing). Thanks for listening!

Tonight's show had a lot of participation in SecondLife and we had an absolute blast! I also have my computer back so no more text-only mode for me. The folks at the GOP of SL are in the middle of remodeling their Cafe but there was enough room for everyone there.

In the previous post I gave out the articles, here are the questions:
  1. Canadian police find bears guarding pot crop


    • What would PETA do?
    • The article mentions that the bears might have to be put down. Can you think of other ways to handle the bears?
  2. Paladino Unveils Welfare Reform


    • What do you think of this idea?
    • Is he saying that everyone on welfare has hygene issues?
  3. Jurors Fault Complexity of the Blagojevich Trial, Blagojevich: Let them retry me


    • This decision has the prosecutors swearing to re-try him. What do you think the chances are of him getting a different result?
    • Some have suggested that there was a "plant" in the jury. What are your thoughts?
    • What are your opinions of the statements that Blago made after the first decision was handed down?
  4. 'Obama is a Christian', Stained-Glass Ceiling: Would America Vote for a Non-Christian?


    • Why is the White House pushing this issue so much?
    • Do you think Obama is Christian? Do you think he is Muslim?
    • On a bigger issue and referencing the second article, do you think an openly practicing Muslim could be elected President?
  5. Charlie Cook to Dems: You know you’re going to get totally destroyed in November, right? Biden Urges D.N.C. to Reject Grim Election Forecast


    • Are these more signs of the Tea Party and general anti-incumbent attitude in action or is the media trying to send signals to core voters?
    • What do you predict for the mid-terms, a change of leadership in the House, Senate, Both or Neither?

Episode 140: New Direction or Wrong Direction?

Let's face it, folks, the current President is working very hard to fill as many promises as he can before November's election. He promised to take the country in a new direction. He promised to change things. Well, he did, and tonight we're going to examine some of those directions. Are they new or are they just wrong?

Click Here to download the show or open the Blubrry player on the right (the blue round thing). Thanks for listening!

Something we mention during the show but I'll also take the time to say something here - get ready for a slight change in the format of the show. As you can see in the show notes, we're discussing fewer articles and identifying specific questions to answer about each one. If you want to throw in your thoughts on a question, feel free to leave a comment or leave a voice comment!

This week's episode took a lot of editing! I sincerely apologise for the amount of time that it took and in the end I could not remove all of the extra noises, specifically the beep that seems to have been coming from my Verizon phone. I did edit out the dead air where we reconnected phones and talked about the technical issues. Thank you so much for your patience!

Tonight's show notes:
  • Good Grub Guide! The UN says eating creepy-crawlies will save the planet ... Our girl finds that hard to swallow

    1. How quickly do you think the American public would adopt such a concept if the Hollywood Left were to come out promoting it?
    2. The stated motive for this suggestion is based on this: "The UN is considering strategies to cut levels of meat consumption worldwide as part of its commitment to stamp out famine and cut global warming."

      Based on that:

      • How would the increased consumption of creepy-crawlies lower the consumption of animal, poultry and marine meat?
      • Given the US (and other countries) requirements for packaging, labeling, marketing, testing and distributing, how would adding this poor excuse for Escargot decrease global warming?
  • Socialists launch blunt clothing line against the tea party movement.

    1. How does this fit in wth the liberal defintion of hate speech and intolerance?
    2. What does this mean for those who would try to bring "bipartisan" back in to national politics?
    3. What is the proper response for this?
  • Voters Strongly Believe Most in Congress Are For Sale

    1. How do you think the recent ethics trials of two long-standing congress members impacted this survey?
    2. Does this mark a success or failure of the widely proclaimed promise to "change things" in Washington that have been made by current majority leadership?
    3. If the Republicans were in control of things do you think this would be any different?
  • Pentagon belt-tightening will cut jobs

    1. What does this do for the current operations in the middle east?
  • The Obama presidency increasingly resembles a modern-day Ancien Régime: extravagant and out of touch with the American people

    1. What could the Obama family do to change this assessment, and do you think they would do it?
  • Obama defends Ground Zero mosque

    Obama has since "clarified" his statements, saying "In this country we treat everybody equally and in accordance with the law, regardless of race, regardless of religion,” Obama said when asked about his remarks at a White House dinner Friday marking the start of Ramadan. He did, however, insist that his defense of the organizers' right to build the mosque did not mean he endorsed the project.

    "I was not commenting and I will not comment on the wisdom of making the decision to put a mosque there," Obama continued. "I was commenting very specifically on the right people have that dates back to our founding. That's what our country is about. And I think it's very important as difficult as some of these issues are that we stay focused on who we are as a people and what our values are all about."
    1. Is this evidence of someone in the administration actually looking at polls and instructing the President to safely backpedal or are these comments genuine?
    2. What do you think the media, both national and international, will do with this series of statements and sound clips?
Share your thoughts and answers in the comments for tonight's show! As I say in the podcast, if you like the show, blog about us and tell four friends and blog about us! If you didn't like tonight's show, we invite you back next week where you will hear different words in a different order.

Obama supports Ground Zero Mosque

By SecondLife Author QWERTY Beeswing
Article Reference: http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0810/41060.html

After weeks of silence on the controversial subject, President Obama finally speaks out in favor of building a mosque near the site of the September 11 attack of The World Trade Center.

In his speech, Obama says, “Ground Zero is, indeed, hallowed ground”. He made this statement at a White House dinner celebrating the Muslim holiday of Ramadan. He continues his statement with, “But let me be clear: as a citizen and as president, I believe that Muslims have the same right to practice their religion as anyone else in this country. That includes the right to build a place of worship and a community center on private property in lower Manhattan, in accordance with local laws and ordinances.”

Ground zero being hallowed ground...what exactly does that mean to President Obama? Do you think he means he has remorse for what happened or for him is it hallowed ground because of the Islamic victory against the west? Do you find this sort of talk coming from a Muslim offensive? Meaning; him saying that it's hallowed ground, and implying that he sympathizes with Americans when in reality he is probably standing with Muslims and enjoying this trophy to their victory? I think we all know that we have religious rights in this country and we also have the right to build a place of worship on any piece of private property we want. That is not what's in question here. What's in question is...is building the mosque “there” the right thing to do? I see this as an insensitive act lacking consideration for the American people and the families that lost loved ones in the attack.

Now I ask you, what does Obama gain by supporting this? 70% of U.S. citizens disapprove of it. That's a very unpopular stance for someone who's approval ratings are at their lowest levels since his being sworn into office. The only logical explanation I can come up with is the favor that this will bring him from Islamic leadership here in our country and abroad.

Wouldn't it make sense that a man promoting harmony among all religions would instead suggest that the mosque be built at another location to promote this peace?

I think the message Obama is sending is very clear. I will stand with Islam and not what is right or what the people want.

We have a chance to counter-balance this socialist/Islamic president in November. I hope that each and every one of you reading this or listening to the pod cast will take some time to research the candidates and find out where they stand before we blindly put someone into office, like Obama, who doesn't care who his boss is or what’s best for the country.

Monday Evening Announcements

Monday Started Early and is Way Too Long

Just a quick update on the status of Episode 140.  It's been recorded and is in the process of being edited.  Unfortunately time is neither my friend nor friendly.  I'll have that show online as quickly as I can.

In other news, I received the following group notice from the GOP of Second Life:
For personal reasons we will be closing the GOP Cafe in its current form on Sagamore Island. While we hope to be back in another form soon, for now we will be supporting our party virtually. I want to thank all of you who over the past 2 years have visited the Cafe. It was created on the concept that ideas and views could be discussed and debated without the acidic retoric seen in some places. We succeeded more than we failed. Our eyes remain on victory in November and a new Republican Majority.

As of this moment, Sagamore is closed an no longer the home of the GOP of Second Life. I'e been assured that this is a "for the momentThe group owners are in the process of identifying a new home for the group. In the meantime, we'll be finding a new home in Second Life.

Finally, keep an eye on the site in the future.  Tonight we post the first article by our guest writer.  For shows moving forward I'm going to work to post the list of articles and questions on the site before the show.

Episode 139: Acting as They Should

In this weekend's episode we're mostly going to discuss stories that didn't get attention. Call them the "stories behind the stories." One of the problems with a 24 hour news cycle and the ADD pubic attention span is that these things just get glossed over.

Episode 138: Consideration

We're back with a new location in SecondLife and somewhat refreshed from the vacation! Tonight's episode was a bit bumpy but a whole lot of fun.

I'm not going to ask, "why did they do this," for the articles tonight. Instead I'm going to ask, "did they consider the consequences?" In most cases the answer is a resounding, "no."

Episode 137: Unmentionables

We've asked, "why would they say that," before and in tonight's episode have even more unmentionables. No, we're not going to give a page by page of the Victoria's Secret catalog, we've got history, swearing, judges, signs, unemployment, ordination, animals and the pleasure police!

Episode 136: Patronizing Patterns

Back to our regular recording schedule, tonight's discussion is going to focus on the Arizona law. That's not the only thing on the list though, as we've got some Obama criticism and a liberal definition of news, "that should be ignored."

We got through the Arizona part but not much further than that! Toawa from SecondLife joined in and we exchanged interpretations and thoughts on the bill.

Episode 135: Supreme Pains

While tonight's show is a day late, we hope to keep it from being a dollar short! We've got quite a few goodies to discuss this evening - to the point that we may not get through them all in the time allowed! From Supreme Court decisions to Nominees, with medals and oil thrown in for good measure, it's going to get hairy!
