Articles for Episode 240: Spaghetti Campaigns

It seems to me like both campaigns are in the habit of using the spaghetti theory when it comes to campaigning. For those not familiar with this concept, it's the idea of throwing a lot of different accusations, talking points and sound bytes out and whatever sticks is what they go with. Here are the articles we're going to be talking about tonight:
Here are the other articles that came up. Yes, there's a lot here. Feel free to discuss in the comments:

Episode 239: Justice

I'm not exactly sure if justice was served, but we certainly had a good time talking about the articles this week!  Ken and I were joined by Shorahmin and Joesf from SecondLife.  We're also going to be back on our regular schedule for recordings, Sunday nights at 8:30pm Eastern, starting with our next episode.

Articles for Episode 239: Justice

In this episode we're going to be talking about justice, not the court kind but what has been reported and handed out by individuals or organizations. Yes, this week we're recording on Monday instead of Sunday. As I mentioned in an earlier post, that time schedule worked out better given schedules and vacations. Here are the articles for this episode:
And yes, there's more!

Episode Recording Delay

Hey folks, just wanted to let everyone know that this week's episode will be recorded a day later than usual. Given travel and time zone changes, we thought it best to make the adjustment for this week.

I am going to try to get the show notes out today. This is only a change for this week. Thanks for your understanding and I hope to see you there!

Episode 238: Personal Responsibility and Required Activities

We had a good time with this episode and were joined in the last 15 minutes or so by Dr. Paul Ibbetson to talk about the Tea Party (and specifically the Kansas Tea Party) and learn about the documentary he has produced about it.  You can learn more about Dr. Ibbetson at his website, http://ibbetsonusa.com/.  More details about the documentary can be found by going to THE KANSAS TEA PARTY: A HEARTLAND STORY.

After the fiasco that was last week's attempt at recording, we decided to simply postpone and "redo" Episode 238.  This episode had some bumps as well, as is indicated as my referring to myself as "time addled"... seems I don't do too well with time zone changes and vacations!

No Podcast This Week

Our apologies for this week, folks, but there is not a podcast episode to post.  There was a serious technical issue with Talkshoe when we went to record on Sunday night and there is no time this week to do a make-up.  Unfortunately these things happen from time to time.

So... next weekend's episode will still be #238 and Dr. Paul Ibbetson has agreed to join us for the recording session.

Thank you for your continued support of the show!  Join us for the recording session if you can and if not, email any questions you might have for Dr. Ibbetson to conservativepodcast@gmail.com.

In the mean-time, here's a video my loving wife found that speaks truth from the past.  Make Mine Freedom!


For those that would rather watch in YouTube: Make Mine Freedom!

Articles for Episode 238: Personal Responsibility and Required Activities

Tonight the article count is lower than usual because of a special guest, Dr. Paul Ibbetson, award winning radio host, author and so much more. Dr. Ibbetson will be joining us to talk about his new documentary about the Tea Party in Kansas and more!

Here are the links and articles for this episode:
We don't have an "overflow" list this week.  Join us for the recording session every Sunday night at 8:30pm Eastern if you can!

Problems with file download

It appears that the server hosting our file downloads is experiencing technical difficulties.  Right now episodes cannot be downloaded.  I will post again when the files are available.

*** UPDATED 7/3/2012 3:23pm Eastern ***

I was just notified of the following message on TalkShoe's home page.  This is what's impacting our downloads:


Dear TalkShoe Users,

In order to provide a better user experience we are increasing our storage capacity for your recordings (MP3s). As a result some users may periodically experience a delay in hearing the recording play back begin. If you experience a delay please consider downloading the recording at a later time. The storage capacity expansion is expected to be completed by July 6th. We appologize for any distruption this may cause for you. Thank you for your continued use and support of TalkShoe.

The TalkShoe Technical Team

Episode 237: Follow-Up, Decisions and Beyond

I purposefully did not want to make the Supreme Court ruling on the Health Care mandate the primary topic of the evening... for a number of reasons.  First, there are other news items out there that need to be discussed and second because it's been talked to death.

While Ken and I are in agreement on our opinions of the ruling, not everyone that participated in the call was.  You know what, that's just fine.  We'll continue to watch the situation because I think it's universally accepted that this is not the end of the line for the fight against the left on this front.
