Articles for Episode 288: Considering the Details

The joys of summer, frayed nerves, tears and yells, accusations and rebuttals. Then there's the political scene! As parents we have to consider the details before taking action in the daily activities in our homes. It should be no different when we look at the news from the week and the politics involved. In this episode we'll be looking in to the details (the reported ones at least) around a myriad of issues and sharing our thoughts on them.

Episode 287: Twisted Reality

A lively conversation from the start! Some of us were worried that the strange tales our articles explained would make heads melt while others said it was nothing out of the ordinary. Take a listen for yourself and decide which!

My apologies for the late posting. The end of the school year has had our schedules a bit twisted.

Articles for Episode 287: Twisted Reality

As the news week started for this episode, I felt my reality getting turned upside down. The articles for this episode reflect some of the reasons for that. We've got examples of people sounding like their ideological opposites and a view of legal rights that downright scary.

This was another week where we could have gone several ways with the episode. Some other educational and disturbing news stories that deserve your attention and comment:

Episode 286: Modern America

After something of a soft start, this epsiode gets rolling on some of the more frequently discussed issues of the past week. That's something of a departure for us, but one that needs to be made from time to time. Even though it wasn't on the list we even got in some conversation about Syria and the NSA leaker.

There was a great turn-out both on TalkShoe and in Second Life. If you find yourself free on a Sunday evening, stop by and join us. We'd love to have you as a part of the conversation!

Articles for Episode 286: Modern America

It's true that we're living in a different kind of America than the founders. Technology has taken the country places never imagined, yet that does not mean our current crop of professional politicians have no precedent for how to do the people's work. In this episode we're looking at how technology is challenging and changing the way America moves forward.

Another busy news week! There are many other articles that deserve some attention and while we'd love to have the time to discuss all of them, we simply can't. Here are the other stories that came across our Twitter feed:

Episode 285: Addressing Growth

Quite the interesting discussion in this episode, first with Mike Garcar, Field Director for the Ohio College Republican Foundation and then with Fabian Story, a man with a lot of campaign experience under his own belt. Unfortunately Mike was not able to stay with us for the whole show and we hope he can join us again!

This was one of those episodes, however, where we didn't even make it into the opening article. This means that we'll need to take time during the week to talk about some of them.

As time marches on, one thing that has to be considered by any organization is how it can expand membership for the future. Tonight we have a special guest, Mike Garcar, Field Director for the Ohio College Republican Federation.

Episode 284: For Their Own Good

Articles for Episode 284: For Their Own Good

One of the things we count on elected and appointed officials to do is act in the best interests of their constituents. In this episode we are going to look at actions that have been taken where this does not seem to be the case. From those who have won elections down to school officials, it seems that reactions and plans are more of an assault on sensibility than anything.
