Front Porch Political Talk Episode 27: A Fowl Sense

Articles for Front Porch Political Talk #27: A Fowl Sense

It has been a busy week and there are a lot of areas that need discussion. In this episode we are going to talk about some articles that are both serious and humorous at the same time. Many of them seem like the punchline to a bad joke somewhere. Articles for this episode:

Front Porch Political Talk Episode 26: No Place For It

A good recording with this episode, definitely worth the listen!  One of the best feats I think we managed to accomplish during the recording was to talk about the protests in South Carolina as an event without muddying the waters on the "right or wrong" of either side.  I mentioned during the podcast our affiliation with Red State Talk Radio but misspoke on the domain, the correct link for Red State Talk Radio is http://www.redstatetalkradio.com.

Articles for Front Porch Political Talk #26: No Place For It

The events of the past week have been interesting to say the least! In this episode we're going to look at some things that don't really mesh with the mindsets of the "average" American, whether they have a right to or not.

Front Porch Political Talk Episode 25: Inhospitable

Another interesting show with Naj and the usual crew. The last time we got on the subject of the flag I think we didn't handle it well.  This episode also has a conversation on both the flag and other items of historical context and seemed to be a bit more balanced.

Articles for Front Porch Political Talk #24: Expected Outcomes

I can't help but marvel at people that are surprised by recent events. Many of the issues that are now considered unexpected have been a part of the overall promise from the President and his party for many years. In this episode we discuss a few of these.

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.

Articles for Front Porch Political Talk #18: Love and Understanding

One of the challenges of political discussions is the lack of understanding that one side has of the other. In this episode we are going to look at some articles that should help us better understand the stance on a number of issues. Whether we are talking about political opponents, activists or terrorists there is some level of rationale, misguided as it may be, behind their actions. This is not to say that we're headed for some kind of "kumbayah" moment at the end of the recording, rather the goal is to glean the method to their madness.

These extra articles are worth including even though they didn't fall in with the show's theme for the night:

Episode 341: Yeah, They Went There

Man, when I say that we went there, we went all the way there! This episode covers the map including subjects that were and were not included on our article list. We hit on presidential candidates, computer games, the belly-button inspection (aka Selfie) trend among American citizens... and even some of the things we meant to.

Articles for Episode 341: Yeah, They Went There

Sometimes we look at something and ask, "did they really 'go there'?" This generally means that whoever was talking or writing took the thought to an unexpected conclusion or thread. We do this a lot with our friend Joesf, actually! Tonight we're going to look at some articles outlining where the political left has been taking things. We'll see if they garner similar responses.

These extra articles are also sources of ire for a variety of reasons.

Articles for Episode 337: Things We Learn

On this show we talk about learning things all the time. In this episode we are going to look at some very educational articles and discuss what we learn from them. One point of relief for some listeners, I've done my level best not to include anything about the dreaded Common Core subject!

A few other educational stories from the past week.

Articles for Episode 335: Missing the Point

There are times when we start talking about something and discover that one or more of us missed the major point in an article. In this episode we are going to look at a number of articles and hope that the point is not missed, either by ourselves or others.

Things have stabilized around here and we should not have any surprise missing episodes moving forward. Thank you for your understanding last week, it really was unavoidable. Articles for this episode:
Some extracirricular reading for the week.

Episode 331: Invoking the Change Mantra

Articles for Episode 331: Invoking the Change Mantra

Obama won in 2008 on a mantra of change. These days, democrats just seem to be changing anything they don't like or agree with. In this episode we're going to be looking at a wide range of subjects. We can expect to be different the next time we find them on our discussion list.

Articles for Episode 329: Can't Want That

One of the cutest things I've heard was my then 4 year old nephew say, "can't want that!" He was talking about a bad thing happening and he had the perfect answer for it. In this episode we're going to look at a number of different articles that would bring out the same response.

As an administrative note, I'm working on changing the way show notes, articles and episode posts are presented here on the site. It may be more advantageous to go back to having a single post per week with both the links to the articles as well as the audio file itself. I'd like to get some feedback before implementing this change so please let me know what you think by emailing conservativepodcast@gmail.com. Thank you!
