June 1, 2019 - NO Soundbites Allowed - There is no anger, it seems, like the anger from the memory of #slavery. But without that memory, history is doomed to repeat itself. Though the question is if it is harmful to address the subject with the modern snowflake in the #education system? And I mean the teachers and parents, not students.

June 1, 2019 - TECN TV New York - (Excerpt) The sad news of the #VirginiaBeach shooting is a stark reminder that no matter the intent, #guncontrol laws like Red Flags and magazine bans always fail. Each time the core reason for the shooting goes without question. There can never be a serious change without ignoring the political emotional games. But what do you think?

April 6, 2019 - Continuing the celebration of my birthday, we took to Facebook Live to investigate the titular question. Could it be illegal immigration or Identity politics? Could it be socialism or Red Flag laws? Maybe drugs? Or something completely different? What do you think?

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.

Who is Hoda Muthana? Why should we care? With the reality that Jussie Smollett arranged the well-publicized "hate crime" hoax that had Progressives and the Left in arms, a new victim of choice is needed to push their agenda. Enter Hoda Muthana, who joined ISIS in 2014 but now wants to return to the US. This may well be the next major emotional story to fill airwaves.

We could have talked about actor Jusse Smollett, but instead we focus on an example of how Congress is failing the public. Like many in Congress, Rep. Brindisi makes a lot of promises. But how serious can we take the promise based on what he has done. Or rather the only thing he has done. A gift of 7 words - and they aren't even his own.

The unspoken issue hiding in the background of the Green New Deal (GND) is 100% compliance. What if you don't want to comply? What will the Democratic Socialist do to you? What freedom do you have if the Government compels you by force? It's an issue Americans must discuss, so tell us your thoughts.

February 7, 2019 - Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is unveiling her $7 trillion Green New Deal, and the details are eye opening. From replacing the electric grid to eliminating gas powered cars, all at the cost of freedom of choice and the US economy. It even stretches to create union jobs, a living wage, Medicare for All, each in the name of climate change and renewable energy. But does it make any sense? Is it even possible? What about China, India, and the 3rd world? Who is Rep. Ocasio-Cortez really trying to help?

We hear about the "evils" of owning a gun in mass media all the time. We are told we need to be more like "civilized" nations like United Kingdom (England). But what does that really mean? Is England more or less violent? With more or less weapons? Featuring interview with Ken McClenton of Exceptional Conservative Show in DC.

In a surprise that wasn't, Gov. Andrew Cuomo revealed on Feb 5, 2019, that New York State had lost $2.3 billion in tax revenues. A culmination of the efforts to enforce the path to a Progressive capital in the nation. While Cuomo tried to deflect the cause, it cannot be denied that bad economic policy coupled with demands that public comply or leave the State is the cause. We highlight the reality that led to this falling domino of consequence, sure to be followed by many more.

Jan. 21, 2019 - Binghamton NY - Gillette has made a clear case that they think men are an intrinsic problem for humanity - thus quoting toxic masculinity? But what does that mean? And why should we accept their definition of men over any other definition?

Egard Watches: https://youtu.be/x_HL0wiK4Zc

Men make up 93 percent of workplace fatalities. Men represent more than 97 percent of war fatalities. 79 percent of homicide victims are male. Men make up 80 percent of suicide victims. 75 percent of homeless people are men.

Sometimes there is a great reason why the internet focuses on a single issue or event. In this case it is Gillette (owned by Proctor & Gamble), and an ad attacking their customer base. To say that this caught our attention is an understatement.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi has run through several excuses on why the State of the Union cannot happen on January 29th. Each reason refuted but the one left unsaid. That this is political and embarrasses the Democrats. She should be honest, but like funding the border wall, that won't happen.

Senator Chuck Schumer slipped into the Southern Tier for a quick announcement before bouncing away today. He spoke about hemp, and the EVENTUAL benefit it may bring to the region - but aren't NYers tired of the big promises that never happen (like Nano, Buffalo Billions, and Drone Testing Center). Plus, how dare Schumer forbid press to discuss the most important issue in America, the shutdown.

This episode we addressed the problem of deception trickling down from the Federal level to local politics. Secret recordings, ethics violations, and misrepresentation to the public. Serious problems that need to be stopped. Is this happening in your local Government? Are you sure?

Without an attempt to be subtle, Sen. Feinstein in the Senate and Gov. Andrew Cuomo in NY are working tirelessly to deprive citizens of their Rights. The goal, in several proposed laws we discuss, is to punish 2nd Amendment owners for the crime of excersizing their Rights. All reviewed in about 15 minutes.

A new format we are trying is our "speed podcast". One issue, in about 15 minutes. Do let us know your thoughts.

 

Of the very few arguments made to justify not funding a wall at the southern border, cost is one of the big excuses. But the very same Dems who say its just too expensive to build want to spend trillions on social and environmental experiments. It just doesn't make sense when you think about it.
