Articles for Front Porch Political Talk #43: Ed You Cate Shun

Given the events of this past week, I felt we needed to focus on education and learning some more about the world around us. To that end we are looking at a number of articles that we can take at least something away from.

While our thoughts and prayers are with those that have been impacted by the terror attacks in France, I made the conscious decision not to focus on them in the podcast. There are a few reasons for this, including the fact that the details of the situation are still being sorted out. There are plenty of people that have already jumped on various bandwagon topics and that's not where I want to be right now.

Articles for this episode:
I had enough articles this week to come up with two complete shows. I've included more than usual only because there was a lot going on this past week. They either didn't fit the topic or weren't enough to make the list.

Articles for Front Porch Political Talk #22: It's Not What It Looks Like

The famous words of those caught in unexplainable situations often come out in some form of, "it's not what it looks like!" In this episode we are going to examine some articles where that seems to be a mantra of sorts. Tonight's recording may be a bit delayed depending on traffic and other scheduling.

Episode 344: Your Policy is Showing

I'm not sure if we made our point tonight or not. We definitely highlighted some policies that are showing and even brought up the concept of action in Iraq as a way to distract the media from domestic news. That said, there were a few odd tangent circles that might make folks look at certain concepts from a different angle.

Two shout-outs from this episode. First, to Joesf a mote in the eye award for playing devil's advocate so perfectly on the college age free speech concept. Also, a mention of Rat Nation which is a fun blog I've started reading. They are where I saw the article about the Tiny House movement mentioned in this episode.

Articles for Episode 344: Your Policy is Showing

Every now and then we have to take a break from questioning the intelligence or sanity of various positions and point out the policy, or at least the perception of policy, that is laid out in the news. The democrats have done a fine job showing us where their priorities lie and in this episode we're going to look at those. Articles for this episode:
Just a bit of extra reading for the week

Episode 290: American Justice

Summer time, as those that have stuck with the podcast over time, leads to episodes being posted extremely late. Thank you for your patience!  We talked about quite a few different cases, including what's happened since the verdict from the Zimmerman trial was released.

Articles for Episode 290: American Justice

On rare occasion a story will break that other outlets don't get a chance to talk about before we do. With the timing of the Zimmerman verdict, we actually have the opportunity to be ahead of the "big names" with our thoughts and comments/

In this episode we are going to look at the results of the case as well as a number of other stories that focus on the American justice system.

Articles for this episode:
There are some other stories that caught our eye this week. Had the timing been different they may have been the main discussion. They deserve our attention as well, unfortunately that attention will have to be relegated to the comments section. Here are some other reading suggestions:

Episode 246: Polar Opposites or Verbal Nuances

Well, not only was I not able to find a good media breakdown of the DNC platform, I completely fell short on posting the episode to the website.  My apologies!  We did record on time and the show has been available on our Talkshoe and iTunes feeds as well as on Red State Talk Radio.

Articles for Episode 246: Polar Opposites or Verbal Nuances

Folks, I tried, I reall did! I wanted to have a three week series on the two platforms and then a final comparison. Unfortunately the news and my own research wouldn't comply with my ideas for the DNC, so I'm left with shortening the series to two weeks.

Tonight we are going to look at the results of the DNC convention and compare them to the GOP platform. Here's how this is going to work. Since we used the Politico story Tampa platform's 5 flashpoints as our diving board for the conversation last weekend, we'll use it to identify the starting comparison points tonight. We'll see where things go from there!

I'm not segregating a "made" and "didn't make" list tonight. Here are the links for articles tonight:
