Things have stabilized around here and we should not have any surprise missing episodes moving forward. Thank you for your understanding last week, it really was unavoidable. Articles for this episode:

Articles for Episode 264: Hot Potato

Looking over the articles that were collected over the past week, it was rather difficult to settle on a single subject for this episode. I ended up picking three issues that are currently being bandied about by the media and political pundits so we could add our input to them.

Before I give the list of articles, I also wanted to share a new site that I found that isn't really an article. Pop Vox is a site that allows you to see bills that are going through the cogs of our political machine and share your opinions on them.

Here are the articles for this episode:
Like I said, there were a lot of articles to pick from this week. This show could have gone a number of different ways. Please, if there are stories you'd like to discuss that we didn't make it to, feel free to add your comments below!

Articles for Episode 204: Gone Too Far

Join us for the conversation every Sunday night at 8:30pm Eastern.

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 129: To mince or not to mince, that is the question.

Over the past week there have been a slew of news items with examples of people mincing or not mincing words. We've got orgies, bishops, politicians, judges and partiers.

This was my first night to run the show without being in SecondLife at all in a long time! As I mentioned last week, my computer is in the process of being repaired so things like live audio and snippets will have to wait for a while. All of the audio is post-recording which is adding to the release time for the show.

In tonight's episode we're talking about the obvious presence or lack of cajones that are expressed in the selection of news articles.

Episode 101: Another Election Coming Up

As the show reaches the beginning of its third year, we find ourselves on the eve of another election cycle. Normally yearly elections are limited to the back of page 4 but this time there is such a wave of interest in government and politics that things are being watched quite heavily. Tonight we've got some election and eduction items to talk about as well as news about the fruit of congressional labor.

Episode 98: They'll Let Anyone In These Days

I think the title of this week's show says it all. This week has seen articles about suicide bomber attempts, co-ed sub crews, Taliban leadership in Afghanistan, the suggested removal of Don't Ask, Don't Tell and the awarding of the Nobel Peace Prize to Obama. All of this is great discussion fodder! In tonight's show we were also joined by Caleb, owner of QuestionObama.com. He explains the purpose and direction that his site is going. We're going to be joining him in some of those efforts too! For those who normally listen to the show live in SecondLife or via the web, you'll already know that tonight was filled with technical issues. Talkshoe's recording system didn't work though it allowed us to call in so tonight's show had to be recorded a slightly different way. It all worked out in the end
