Front Porch Political Talk Episode 46: Political Ignorance

Just on the heels of what I feel was one of our best episodes yet, we have an example of what some can rightfully call, "agreeable disagreement." It's worth the listen and asking yourself the questions we pose.

Articles for Front Porch Political Talk #46: Political Ignorance

While the year draws to a close the political campaigns continue to heat up. During the stump stops and fundraiser dinners many things have been said that raise eyebrows and that's part of the subject for this episode. We are also going to look at some trends that continue to grow and raise concerns of their own.

This episode won't be especially kid friendly only because of some of the implications of language used both in the recording and the referenced articles.

Front Porch Political Talk Episode 45: Losing Patience

I think this was one of the most cathartic and complete shows that we've had in a long time. Every week we end up with a lot of questions, regardless of the conversation or subject. In this episode I started off rather angry and the conversation actually helped me put some of the things that I was getting emotional about in a different light. Often having a different perspective or deeper insight into an issue can invoke more thought and I think that's what happened here.

That's one of the big reasons we do this show. Sure, we have fun with different topics and try not to rehash the same stories that are brought up by other shows but at the end of the day it's about the sharing of ideas and insights. We don't have to agree on everything all the time; rather we respect each other's right to their opinion. Be sure to share your thoughts on the articles or our take on them using one of the many methods provided. We'd love to hear from you!

Articles for Front Porch Political Talk #45: Losing Patience

After being subjected to a wide number of political comments, debates and retorts I am beginning to lose my patience. In this episode we are going to talk about a few of the subjects that have raised my blood pressure and search for resolution.

Front Porch Political Talk Episode 43: Ed You Cate Shun

This episode went extremely well from a discussion perspective. Granted, we didn't get to as many of the articles as I had hoped. Such is the nature of things and we'll keep an eye on the news to see if they are worth bringing back in at a later date.

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.

Front Porch Political Talk Episode 42: Addressing Issues

We didn't get to all of the articles but in many cases the issues were addressed. We did have a fun time with some of the articles and Joesf has a "coming out" statement that went somewhere I didn't expect it to.

We've had our local elections for the year with some interesting outcomes. Even with a large number of incumbents winning there are several issues that appear to have been brought to the light of day which might be addressed. In this episode we will look at these issues and the actions that are being proposed to address them.

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?

I know there was a lot of sense in what was discussed, I'm not sure it would be considered "sensitive" for most. It was a good discussion though!

Articles for Front Porch Political Talk #38: Sense and Sensitivity

There are times when we have to be considerate about the sensitivities of those around us, whether it be food or environment or otherwise.  In this episode we look at some cases where doing this may or may not be the best idea.

Front Porch Political Talk Episode 37: Neither Now Nor Later

Well, this was an interesting show and didn't go exactly the way we planned.  Conversations that include Common Core can sometimes be tense and this one did not fail in that regard.  We also spent a lot of time talking about the Oregon shooting, the victims and the Constitutional challenges with either preventing or detecting activities.  It's not a light conversation by any means but one that must be had.

Another busy news week that brings a lot of conversation topics to the table. In this episode we are looking at the concept of how the past as defined by leaders of the present defines the future. Things may appear on the surface to be all over the place but by the end of the show we'll have a cohesive conversation that makes sense.

Front Porch Political Talk Episode 34: What to Believe

This was a great show and we had a lot of fun with it!  During the show, Toawa mentioned an interview about the Iran nuclear deals and followed up with a link to the interview with someone familiar with the IAEA standards.
