Episode 112a: Better Start Listening!

Yesterday's election of Scott Brown (conservative) to the seat formerly filled by Sen. Edward "The Liberal Lion" Kennedy sends a clear message to all elected officials: LISTEN to your constituents!

Episode 112: Multi-Tasking Majority

In tonight's show we're going to have to jump all over the place! We've got news on the health care front, news on the race in Massachusetts senate seat, articles from across the world and items on the continuing efforts in Haiti. We've got articles for the show but to be honest if we stray from script tonight we're not going to be too upset.

We actually didn't stray 'too bad'... the show went rather well and we even managed to keep things relatively on time!

Episode 111a: Stay On Target

The first comment of 2010!  For those who aren't familiar with the Comments, they are short recordings that I make during my drive to or from work on some subject or another.  The subject for this one is something that we've said quite often - we need to keep "on target" when it comes to the antics and actions of this administration.

When I recorded this issue, the news was just breaking about the earthquake on Haiti. While both Ken and I agree that it is a horrible situation and one that deserves a lot of attention, the 24 hour news cycle has been completely diverted to it. Before that, it was Harry Reid's supposed gaffe. As much as I don't want to seem dismissive of the Haiti tragedy, I can't help but think that there are other things going on that are going unreported when it comes to the Health Insurance Reform bill or other nasty things like Cap & Trade.

Before the link to the audio, a link to something more humanitarian: support for Haiti. Click on this link to be taken to the Red Cross site where you can donate.

I will warn you ahead of time that the audio quality of this particular comment isn't the best - and that's after I edited the heck out of it!

Episode 111: Those Wacky Terrorists

Tonight's episode starts with a follow-up to last week's show, hopefully withotut the need for the verbal acrobatics that came to play before. Then we each actually have a couple of local issue to discuss. Finally, some discussion on the state of the War on Terror and how the current administration has decided to deal with it.

A special thanks to everyone that joined us in the Talkshoe chat room! This show would not be what it is without the "live" feedback of the listening audience! Also thanks to my mom for joining us on the call tonight!

Episode 110: Starting with a Question Mark

For our first show of the year, we decided that we would hit the ground running with some questions of our own. In short, we dediced to begin with a question mark. In some
cases it will end that phrase, "what tha..." and in other cases the
question is more like, "what was the point?"

We were joined by a large and active chat audience, both in TalkShoe as well as SecondLife. On the call we also had a guest caller, Jeff from Anna, TX. While the conversation went off the planed track at that point it still was an enjoyable one! The joy of live shows was evident tonight.

Here are the questions and their related articles:
After these, Jeff joined in and we had a conversation about term limits, professional politicians, Constitutional amendments and welfare systems.

As I said to Jeff (and say every week), if you liked the show, blog about us and tell four of your friends. If you didn't like the show, come back next week - where you will hear different words in a different order.
