New Video Uploaded - Opposition vs Hate

I've finally had the chance to clean up and release the first full episode of Driving Me Crazy, the new commute-cast video blog series that ties in with the podcast.  I really want to use these videos as a conduit for conversation about a variety of subjects.

The first one on the table is the concept that disagreement with or opposition to an idea immediately translates to hatred for those involved in the idea.


What are your thoughts on this subject?  What do you think of the video itself?  Let me know!  I'm working on a second video right now and hope to have it released before the end of the week.

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:

Video Comment 9: When is it Conspiracy?


So there are times when something sounds like a tinfoil-hat conspiracy, but what is that tipping point?  In this video I talk about the claim made by an attorney that police actions to confiscate his weapons weren't accidental, rather they were an attempt to see how far the NY SAFE Act could be pushed.


How much of this is real and how much is paranoia is something the general public may never know.  Here's a link to part of the story: http://www.wben.com/pages/16021389.php?contentType=4&contentId=12784239  I've tweeted other relevant articles as well.

Video Comment 8: Two Logical Questions

Well, the morning commute concept seems to work well and so I put it to use yet again.  Never fear, when you see both hands off the wheel, I'm stopped!

While I bring up two specific issues in this video episode, the questions I raise can be asked of any political response to "an issue."  It happens that as examples I use gun control and standardized testing.

Video Comment 7: Nerdy Dirty Words

I've moved the video comment recording from the house into the car and like the results.  In this video I share the concept of a game that my kids have been playing called the "Nerdy Dirty Word" where you take an every-day word and turn it into a game of verbal tag.  This seems to be a running game that politicians and the media use, though we put the label "hot-button issue" on it.

Video Episode 6: Starting the Conversation

After last week's episode I felt I had to come up with some avenue to start a conversation about truly effecting some level of change in our country.  There was a letter to the editor brought up on Facebook today and I decided to use it as a gateway for conversation about some of the cultural issues impacting the fiscal stability of the nation.

Video Episode 5: An Open Letter to Republicans

This is my "response to the election" post.  It's an open letter to conservatives and Republicans.  I am including this post as both a video and the actual letter.  Some of the wording is a bit different but it's worth watching and then reading.


For those that have listened to our Election Night coverage final episode on the podcast feed (you can get it by going to our TalkShoe page), you will no doubt hear how I initially reacted to the election results.  I, like so many other conservatives, thought that there was a good chance for Governor Romney to win the election.  I've taken a few days to digest the truth and fiction of the election results and want to share my thoughts and ideas on where we as conservatives need to go in order to move forward.  This is especially true for the Republican party.

Video Episode 4: Scary Games Politicans Play

I seem to be having more fun with this video stuff, so that means you'll be seeing more of it along with the weekly podcast recordings! Tonight I wanted to share my thoughts on two bits of absurdity. The first was the fact that a liberal candidate for State Senate in Maine was Slammed for World of Warcraft Fandom. The second relates to the recently release unemployment numbers. My apologies if I offended any of you WoW players out there. I'm guessing my students were the exception... unfortunately they're also the only experience I have in real life!

Video Episode 3: Post Debate Comment

After watching and listening to the first Presidential debate tonight, I had to record a quick comment and response.  What did you think?



I also assigned something of a homework question, which I'll see about putting up as a poll as well.  Did "candidate" Obama provide the same level of specifics and details for his plans in 2008 that his campaign is now asking Romney for?

Video Episode 2: Church Issues

It took a while but we finally have our second video issue out.  I took the opportunity of something that was mentioned briefly in Episode 248 regarding the 1,000 or so pastors that intend to make a political statement from the pulpit on October 7.



Here's the link to an article that covers what I'm taking about in the video: Pastors pledge to defy IRS, preach politics from pulpit ahead of election

Video Episode 1: Partisan Hacks

Well folks, it finally happened.  One of our listeners posted a video comment and I took the opportunity to create and post our first video episode as a reply.  It is posted on YouTube and I have linked to it here as well!

This video was a reply to a video posted by Zack, a progressive listener on Facebook.

Let us know what you think!
