Front Porch Political Talk Episode 86: Pain, Rage and Trump

This was definitely an interesting examination of the articles, from reinterpreting things presented as negative to explaining the failures identified in concepts. Some good thoughts shared by all!

Two additional links were presented during the course of the show tonight. The first was a reference to the Adams vs Jefferson race of 1800 where some truly hideous character references were thrown out. The second is an interesting video about addiction shared in the chat. Both are worth reading or watching.

Articles for Front Porch Political Talk #86: Pain, Rage and Trump

As we draw closer to the end of this election cycle, it's time again to bring out the "Bitter Clingers" trope. In this instance it's not just guns and God, it's debt, jobs, food and in some cases common sense. In this episode we look at a number of those items from the week's news. Articles for this episode:
Of course other things were going on this week, here are some other articles for your reading:

Front Porch Political Talk Episode 41: Offense Taken

This episode was quite fun and thought provoking at the same time. Some questions were posed that we don't have perfect answers for and that leaves the door open for listeners to add comments of their own.

During the show, some extra links were shared. Listener Paul Scrabo mentioned Mike Rowe's reply to the article about "Hard Work" and Toawa mentioned that the same article remined him of the article about what to call theives in San Francisco.

Articles for Front Porch Political Talk #41: Offense Taken

It's difficult to find something that won't offend at least one small group of people these days. In this episode we are going to look at some examples of offense that were taken somewhere. Will we find the same insult or are these people just being dramatic?

Articles for this episode:
Some extra articles for this week. They either didn't fit the topic or weren't enough to make the list.

Articles for Episode 334: Save Us From Ourselves

It seems there are a lot of attempts by well meaning types to save the American people from their own actions. In this episode we are going to look at a number of these ranging from state to national issues. 

I have decided to move in a different direction with the changes I posted about last week.  For now things will appear and run as they have.  With the summer coming on, there are a number of initiatives that I have planned, including a platform migration and restarting the video comments.  I'll post more as those plans solidify.

Episode 330: Striking an Accord

This episode turned out to be a good example of how to look beyond the headline to the content hidden underneath. It seems like so many of the stories had more to tell than the title implied. It was a great conversation!

At the end of the episode is a dedication to one of the show's big supporters. Jimmie Jones, my step-father and role model passed away in April and I felt it only fitting to dedicate this show to him.

Articles for Episode 330: Striking an Accord

While compromise is not a dirty word, there are still concepts and beliefs that can not be given up on. In this episode we're going to discuss areas where reaching an agreement sometimes works and sometimes doesn't.

My apologies for the short notice on last week's episode. There were personal issues that had to be dealt with. An explanation will be made during this recording.

Episode 297: Discriminating Minds

The question of the night was if certain groups were being discriminated against and there was not a specific answer. We shuffled articles around a bit and had a good time.

Click Here to download the podcast, or listen using the Blubrry player (the blue ball on the right of the page).

I'm finishing up my listen of The Liberty Amendments by Mark Levin. They list not only the changes that Mr. Levin recommends but also the historical back-story for each one. We'll actually be taking some time during upcoming episodes to discuss these proposals at length, so if you want to participate in them take advantage of an Audible credit and get the book now!  What Audible credit?  You can get a free 30 day trial at Audible.com as well as a free audio book by going to http://www.audibletrial.com/eastcoastconservative and signing up.

Episode 296: Roles

This was a rather interesting episode. We didn't make it through all of the articles but that's not a big surprise. The articles clearly pointed out a point that government has expanded well beyond its originally designed role set.

I did assign a bit of homework with this episode. Write down the job descriptions for elected officials you can think of without looking them up, then go online and check your work. I mentioned President, Federal Senator and Representative, State Senator and Representative and Governor. If you have other offices you want to look up feel free!

Articles for Episode 296: Roles

When we look at current events through the lens of history, we see that that changes in our country have come from many places. Both those politicians that would push a Progressive agenda and citizenry that are either idly or actively complicit are to blame.

If you ask the "man on the street" what the job description for various elected offices are, I'm pretty sure you would get a wide array of answers. The same is true if you asked candidates or elected officials. The sad thing is, most of them would be incorrect. In this episode we're going to talk about the roles of various offices as they have been interpreted and implemented. Articles for this episode:
I filtered out the Twitter article list a bit for this episode. These are the other articles that seemed to scream, "read me!"

Episode 292: This Can't End Well

This was quite the lively episode! Apparently the articles I pulled illustrate more than just that specific issue of things not ending well but go beyond that. Most of the folks on the call were of the opinion that they shine a light on the plans that illustrate where the left want to take the country.

What do you think? Are these isolated or are they disparate parts of a larger plan? Is there a way for any of these items to end well? Let us know!

Articles for Episode 292: This Can't End Well

There was quite a bit that happened this past week and with many of the stories I read, I shook my head and said, "this can't end well." Those are the articles that are up for discussion this evening. With everything from the EEOC to Duck Dynasty to Jimmy Carter, you know it's going to be an interesting discussion!

Episode 257: A Season of Change

For a late recording show, we had a good turn-out when it came to the audience!  In this episode we did something of a panel with Ken, Shorahmin, Joesf and Toawa adding their thoughts to what happened in the 2012 election.  You'll have to listen to hear their take on just where the GOP took missteps and wrong turns!  We also talked about some of the upcoming "gotcha" items embedded in that lovely little bill we call Obamacare.

We actually used articles from the "other links" section of the show notes... I think more than from the main list!

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.
