Front Porch Political Talk Episode 91: Scapegoats and Excuses

Articles for Front Porch Political Talk #91: Scapegoats and Excuses

One of the reasons for the groundswell of derision against politicians is their constant refusal to admit their errors. Instead there is a constant search for scapegoats and excuses why policies fail and elections are lost. In this episode we look at a selection of those along with other news.

Episode 311: Misconceptions and History

We had a very lively conversation regarding a couple of different items including minimum wage and Nelson Mandela. We were joined by Naj this week who offered a different perspective and some insights that added to the conversation. It was a very fun time.

One thing I mentioned during the show was to keep an eye on the site for some important announcements coming soon. We've got an opportunity that will be shared over the next couple of days and we'll be explaining what it would mean and how it would change things. Keep an eye here for more details.
