Articles for Front Porch Political Talk #59: Inevitable Conclusion

There are some events that will have an expected or inevitable conclusion. This may not be what was forecast by most of the people involved but the world, politics and humanity all have a way of disregarding that. In this episode we are looking at a selection of examples from recent news.

Articles for Front Porch Political Talk #40: Pride and Responsibility

It is important for people to take responsibility for their actions and hopefully be proud of them. In this episode we are looking at articles where this should be the case. It isn't always but that's what we get to discuss along the way.

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.

Episode 355: Once It's There

This is one of those shows that you have to listen to more than once. Our goal was to talk about things that, once implemented, have proven very difficult to dislodge. The conversation didn't go quite the way it was expected but in the end became a very strong example of just that fact. It's also an example of where the participants in the podcast can have a disagreement and remain civil about it.

Articles for Episode 355: Once It's There

There is a concept with government that, "once something's in place, it's almost impossible to remove." That's not always the case but in this episode we're going to run with that theme. The articles we've got on tap point out programs, actions and mindsets that need to be adjusted before they are ingrained in America's mindset.

Articles for this episode:
More articles that I could fit in the regular list but worth reading!

Articles for Episode 340: No Need for Fiction

Over the past week I've found a number of parody or satire articles that made their way to Facebook and/or Twitter as if they were true stories. In this episode we're going to look at articles that outline why we don't need our blood pressure raised by those parodies, real news is bad enough!

Something interesting, in last week's episode we has a number of visitors in Second Life that meant to bring more disruption than discussion. Unfortunately they partially succeeded, as they brought the sim down. In doing so, however, they failed to recognize that their presence increased the traffic to the site, the podcast and the sim. Our numbers have hit new highs and this week I was notified that our Twitter feed was added to the "Top Political Brains" list at Ticckle.com which apparently is an opinion conversation site.

Articles for this episode:
These extra articles are also sources of ire for a variety of reasons.  There's more after the break...

Announcement: Expansion Opportunity

During the last episode of the podcast I mentioned that there is an exciting opportunity available for the show.  We have been contacted by the folks over at Boost Radio Network.  This is a new internet only radio station that is launching in January 2014.  They are creating a network of shows that spans the spectrum, from politics to money to home improvement and more.

This opportunity has the potential to grow the audience in a number of different ways.  Our show will be run live during it's regular weekly broadcast.  We will still be distributing via TalkShoe, iTunes, Stitcher, the website and the Red State Talk Radio Network.  There is also the ability to use their interface which allows for live call-in participation.  Additionally there are potential advertiser opportunities based on the association with the network that will be a better deal for our show than what has been available in the past.

Unfortunately, participation in the network is not free.  Like many networks there is a charge for using the software and bandwidth.  I'm not going to go into the specifics for this, these fees are negotiated and contracted with each participating production.

This podcast has been a passionate but largely unfunded project for Ken and I up to this point.  This opportunity is game-changing but it is not something that we take lightly.  Our focus in going down this path is more about spreading our conservative message and influence and less about making any kind of return.  It's also not something that Ken and I can absorb so we are reaching out to our listening audience to help.  If you are interested in helping out, please continue reading.

Video Comment 10: Leveling the Playing Field

This one was recorded a little over a week ago (springtime brings posting delays, as many know) but is definitely a relevant issue.

Whenever you hear the term "level playing field" come out of the mouths of politicians, ask yourself the two logical questions I posed back in video comment #8.  In this latest abuse of the sports reference, they're talking about the Internet Sales Tax.  Here are my thoughts on that:

Episode 278: Safety Precautions

A bit late getting this episode posted to the website, sorry about that. It was a good conversation about the events in Boston, while working hard to discuss new items and not simply go on about the same issues everyone else had been talking about.

There was quite the conversation about schooling, especially home schooling in light of some of the articles that have come out lately. Which camp do you fall in? Do you think parents should keep their kids in the system and fight the bureaucracy from within or pull their kids out and challenge the system on behalf of others?

Articles for Episode 278: Safety Precautions

After the events of the past week, what are we doing to keep things safe? What's happening in the government to maintain security levels and how are educators working to help our children stay safe? Based on the articles for this episode, it's a rather confusing and twisted answer. Join us to discuss these and other things!

While it's not on the article list, we will be talking about the bombing in Boston as well.  I am specifically not including any of the "liberals had their mind made up," "Bostonians gave up their guns" or any other of the rants that have been flowing around the 'net with reckless abandon.  We're really shooting for, "different words in a different order," this week.

Articles for this episode:
Twitter was a-flitter with a lot of different news stories this week. While we might not get a chance to talk about them, give the a read and add your comments to the conversation about them. Here are some of the other articles that were tweeted @ECConservative:

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.

A lot of fun in this episode, with David Oatney as well as a round-table of Shorahmin, Toawa, Joesf and Tom from Secondlife.  David is a Tennessee State House Examiner, Western Religion and Elections examiner for Examiner.com.

Episode 232: Dumb and Dumber

Well, this episode did not go the way I expected it to!  Yes, we talked about some brain-melting levels of dumb answers but the conversation and my concepts at the end of the call didn't really line up with where I thought they were going to.
