Front Porch Political Talk Episode 68: Confusing Compassion

I think the subject of this episode might have been lost somewhere along the way but that doesn't mean that we didn't have a great discussion and share some insightful points. We did manage to get through the truly important articles with only a few tangents.

While we didn't specifically express it in the recording, our prayers go out to the families of those involved in the shooting in Orlando.

Articles for Front Porch Political Talk #11: Rendering Opinions

While we take time each week giving our own opinions on what has happened in the news, some decisions rendered this week bear discussing. We are going to look at these items and more in this episode.

There has been an unexpected change for the podcast's presence in Second Life. We are getting more settled into our new home at Cheertopia as well as an outpost on the mainland in Ello. There have also been some delays on other initiatives as a more comprehensive plan is put in place for the show.

Other articles that could have been included in the list tonight but didn't make the cut due to time constraints:

Episode 303: Cracks in the Facade

Yet again we have a case of an episode post lagging the recording by a week... I have plenty of reasons but again I apologize.  Maybe I should take a pay cut...

It turns out that folks didn't really disagree with the premise of this episode, that more and more of the American public are starting to see through the cracks at what's really going on in Washington.

Articles for Episode 303: Cracks in the Façade

There is so much media coverage about the failing health care websites and continued shutdown that we're going to be looking at other things in this episode. We're looking deeper, past the posturing and endless press conferences at some of the signs that the government is starting to crack.

Be sure, there are those stalwarts that will stick to their… positions. There are also articles that are coming out showing very disturbing events that, if done by anyone else, would generate calls for termination if not prison time. Their façade is starting to crack all over the place and even their usual cheerleaders can't patch everything up. Articles for this episode:
Those that watch our Twitter feed at ECConservative will notice that not all of the articles tweeted over the past week are showing up here this time. We had something of a "twittersplosion" and the articles below are the more relevant (or less repetitive) of the activity.

Episode 299: Mind Your Own House Part 2

As promised, we continued going over the amendments proposed in Mark Levin's The Liberty Amendments. It's an interesting collection of history and suggestions for cementing the spirit of the founders back into the Constition. Again there wasn't one that every person on the call agreed with but the book brings out the way the country has changed substantially since its founding.

Be sure to be available for our 300th episode! We are going to be joined by Assemblywoman Jane Corwin for the show to talk about New York, Gun Control and what's going on to address the overreach that has happened in the state. It's going to be a special episode for a special milestone!

Articles for Episode 299: Mind Your Own House Part 2

There's the phrase, "Mind Your Own House," which is typically uttered to someone that is too busy calling out the failings of another while their own situation isn't much better. We seem to be in that state in the US now. We are continuing the conversation around Mark Levin's proposed Liberty Amendments and some news stories that fit in neatly with his suggestions.

Episode 284: For Their Own Good

It seems I managed to pull in articles that got everyone's blood boiling! This episode has to be one of the more lively in some time, and not because of bad jokes. All of our callers and a few folks in SecondLife had thoughts to add to the conversation

In our next episode we'll be talking with Mike Garcar, a Field Director for the Ohio College Republican Federation, Romney campaign worker and upcoming author. We'll be talking about his observations about engaging the millennial generation.

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.

Articles for this episode:
This episode is truly a tale of two podcasts. There was a completely different episode that could have been put together in the articles listed below. Take some time and browse them at your leisure, and if you want to comment on an article feel free!

Articles for Episode 271: Challenging Times

There's no doubt that times are challenging for American citizens. The economy's bipolar approach to recovery, gun rights being challenged and educational standards in the tank. Tonight we're going to look at these issues in a bit more detail.

For this episode we have with us Bob Schulz and Judith Whitmore of We The People of New York. They have filed suit against the state of New York on the constitutionality and process related to the passing of the New York SAFE Gun Control Act. Learn more about their organization and petitions at WeThePeopleofNY.org.  You can read the press release about their lawsuit by clicking here.

Articles for this episode:
Again, another short list of other articles. Definitely some that bear more conversation though.

Episode 269: It Drives Me Crazy

The premise for this episode started with a book about pollution that flowed with waste about fecal matter and other things. From there, the show's content hilighted some examples of the mental sludge that passes for policy and position.

We've added a link to our new Zazzle.com store to the website. Right now there are only two products but we'll be adding more as time goes on. If you have ideas for products please email them to us at conservativepodcast@gmail.com.

Episode 231: Conjuring Perceptions

Another late post, the joys of spring, right?

The episode was a lot of fun to record.  Shorahmin and Joesf from SecondLife joined in and we had ourselves a "grand old time" talking about the concepts of family security, the perceptions that are made based on actions and words as well as a few other fun things.

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 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?
