Video Comment 9: When is it Conspiracy?


So there are times when something sounds like a tinfoil-hat conspiracy, but what is that tipping point?  In this video I talk about the claim made by an attorney that police actions to confiscate his weapons weren't accidental, rather they were an attempt to see how far the NY SAFE Act could be pushed.


How much of this is real and how much is paranoia is something the general public may never know.  Here's a link to part of the story: http://www.wben.com/pages/16021389.php?contentType=4&contentId=12784239  I've tweeted other relevant articles as well.

Video Comment 8: Two Logical Questions

Well, the morning commute concept seems to work well and so I put it to use yet again.  Never fear, when you see both hands off the wheel, I'm stopped!

While I bring up two specific issues in this video episode, the questions I raise can be asked of any political response to "an issue."  It happens that as examples I use gun control and standardized testing.

Video Comment 7: Nerdy Dirty Words

I've moved the video comment recording from the house into the car and like the results.  In this video I share the concept of a game that my kids have been playing called the "Nerdy Dirty Word" where you take an every-day word and turn it into a game of verbal tag.  This seems to be a running game that politicians and the media use, though we put the label "hot-button issue" on it.

In Line at Wal-Mart

My good friend Fabian Story just posted the following on Facebook:
Ok, so as I am standing in line in Wal-Mart I am privy to a conversation that takes place between two very very verl large women who have carts full of junk foods and processed pre-cooked meals laughing and talking about the fact that the are now going to vote for Obama since they have received their new Obama phone and was able to drop their contract with Verizon and now pay 10.00 a month each for the same plan they were paying 69 for the equivalent services with Verizon. They then proceeded to tell me and another lady in the line that Obama is saving this nation by "giving" everyone healthcare, phones, paying off people's houses and making it harder on businesses to screw us.

I asked her where she worked and she told me she lives off of child support for 5 kids with 4 diff daddy's and she was not ashamed to tell me that she made more by lying in court and making them "pay" than getting a real job. She said that since she did not have to report Child Support as income she lived in "rent assisted" house, gets nearly 1600 in food stamps and other services and she sees this as her right. What are we becoming?
Now, if you talk to Democrats about those who leech off our public support system, they'll tell you these are "few and far between."  Unfortunately, this isn't the only story that I've heard that follows this same narrative. It seems to me like the exception, for some demographics, is becoming more and more the rule.

Even President Obama has said, "I think we should acknowledge that some welfare programs in the past were not well designed and in some cases did encourage dependency.… As somebody who worked in low-income neighborhoods, I've seen it where people weren't encouraged to work, weren't encouraged to upgrade their skills, were just getting a check, and over time their motivation started to diminish. And I think even if you’re progressive you've got to acknowledge that some of these things have not been well designed." (ref: President Obama Admits Welfare Encourages Dependency)

Apparently in some parts of the country, it's not just the past but also the present where this is the case.

Video Episode 4: Scary Games Politicans Play

I seem to be having more fun with this video stuff, so that means you'll be seeing more of it along with the weekly podcast recordings! Tonight I wanted to share my thoughts on two bits of absurdity. The first was the fact that a liberal candidate for State Senate in Maine was Slammed for World of Warcraft Fandom. The second relates to the recently release unemployment numbers. My apologies if I offended any of you WoW players out there. I'm guessing my students were the exception... unfortunately they're also the only experience I have in real life!

Video Episode 3: Post Debate Comment

After watching and listening to the first Presidential debate tonight, I had to record a quick comment and response.  What did you think?



I also assigned something of a homework question, which I'll see about putting up as a poll as well.  Did "candidate" Obama provide the same level of specifics and details for his plans in 2008 that his campaign is now asking Romney for?

Video Episode 2: Church Issues

It took a while but we finally have our second video issue out.  I took the opportunity of something that was mentioned briefly in Episode 248 regarding the 1,000 or so pastors that intend to make a political statement from the pulpit on October 7.



Here's the link to an article that covers what I'm taking about in the video: Pastors pledge to defy IRS, preach politics from pulpit ahead of election

Thanks for watching!

Episode 127a: It's News But It's Not That Much News

President Obama was in town and I had to record my feelings and observations on the over-the-top news coverage that he got.

I mean, seriously people!  It felt like I was listening to walking narrated.

Episode 120a: Dancin' Democrats

It's been three days since the Democrats pushed through the Senate version of "Health Care Reform" and we're still seeing our Commander in Chief in campaign mode trying to sell it!  In this morning's comments I reflect on the differences between reconciliation and amendments and I have a new phrase, gladly stolen from Michael Dinowitz of HouseOfFusion.com...

... is like sword-dancing blindfolded on a freshly waxed minefield.
This can apply in so many different areas today!

Episode 112a: Better Start Listening!

Yesterday's election of Scott Brown (conservative) to the seat formerly filled by Sen. Edward "The Liberal Lion" Kennedy sends a clear message to all elected officials: LISTEN to your constituents!

Episode 111a: Stay On Target

The first comment of 2010!  For those who aren't familiar with the Comments, they are short recordings that I make during my drive to or from work on some subject or another.  The subject for this one is something that we've said quite often - we need to keep "on target" when it comes to the antics and actions of this administration.

When I recorded this issue, the news was just breaking about the earthquake on Haiti. While both Ken and I agree that it is a horrible situation and one that deserves a lot of attention, the 24 hour news cycle has been completely diverted to it. Before that, it was Harry Reid's supposed gaffe. As much as I don't want to seem dismissive of the Haiti tragedy, I can't help but think that there are other things going on that are going unreported when it comes to the Health Insurance Reform bill or other nasty things like Cap & Trade.

Before the link to the audio, a link to something more humanitarian: support for Haiti. Click on this link to be taken to the Red Cross site where you can donate.

I will warn you ahead of time that the audio quality of this particular comment isn't the best - and that's after I edited the heck out of it!
