July 28, 2019 - Special guest and Baltimore mayoral candidate #ShannonWright joins us for this discussion. The media is abluster with claims of racism for calling out the problems of #Baltimore, and the failures of Rep. #ElijahCummings. But is stating a fact racism? Does that help Baltimore? And what does Baltimore MD need?

July 19, 2019 - There is a lot of bluster surrounding a national minimum wage of $15/hr. Sometimes (like in the case of Rep. Anthony Brindisi) the glib soundbites conflict. But we look at the issue from 2013 to the vote on HR 582, to see what it will mean to the future of America. Recorded on Facebook Live

June 11, 2019 - NO Soundbites Allowed - There is no shortage of #guncontrol and anti-Second Amendment fanatics in current politics. Sen. Diane Feinstein, #EricSwalwell, the Brady campaign and many others - all make their arguments quoting data from the Center for Disease Control, and they are wrong. Because the #CDC admits their numbers are flawed. Not that his is publicized. We wonder why there isn't more news on this?

May 25, 2019 - It was just over 3 years ago that we started NO Soundbites Allowed. One of our first supporters, and the first interviewee, was Dr. Giovanni Scaringi. A Binghamton City Councilman, professor at SUNY Broome and Binghamton University, and friend, he gladly returned for our 200th episode over the Memorial Day Weekend. We discussed Avengers Endgame and Game of Thrones. Then we got serious, talking about ethics in Government, the Electoral College, and importance of Memorial Day as we as the Constitution. Please join our conversation, add your thoughts, and share.

Having seen a growing number of text, tweets, and Facebook posts talking about lowering the age to vote to 16, we decided to discuss this. How do you feel about this? Do you trust 16 yr olds with you life and finances? Can someone with little or no life experience influence your freedoms and choices? Do you trust their unfinished basic education to be enough?

Global Cooling. Global Warming. Climate Change. Whatever title it has been given over the decades, the core thought is the same. As said by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, "A #GreenNewDeal is a common sense, moral solution to fix these issues with the urgency they demand." But the noted environmentalist who had the Obama Administration spend $150 billion in tax dollars on Climate Change has a very different opinion.
