Show Notes - 07/26/2011

Tonight we were talking about politically incorrect terms. In fact we have no idea why the hell these terms or words had to be changed as they were, for the most part, FINE. Here is the promised list from The New Book Of Lists:

12 Politically Incorrect Terms and Their Alternatives

  • BORING - Differently Interesting; Charm-Free
  • DEAD - Terminally Inconvenienced
  • DISHONEST - Morally Different; Ethically Disoriented
  • DRUNK - Sobriety-Deprived
  • HERPES - His 'n' herpes
  • MAFIOSO - Member of a Career-Offender Cartel
  • MEAT - Processed Animal Carcasses; Scorched Corpses of Animals
  • OLD JOKE - Previously Recounted Humorous Narrative
  • PANHANDLER - Unaffiliated applicant for private sector funding
  • SHOPLIFTER - Nontraditional Shopper
  • SNOWMAN - Person of Snow
  • WHITE(person) - Melanin-Impoverished

We also updated the latest news about President Obama demanding compromise on the debt ceiling issue and also threatening to veto plans that he basically does not like. It is OUR OPINION that he is only interested in plans that allow him to keep spending blank checks and not really caring how it affects WE THE PEOPLE. What are your thoughts?

Show Notes - 07/24/2011

Our friend Sean Sublette the Chief Meteorologist at ABC-13 in Lynchburg, VA joined us on the show to talk about the recent heat wave and explained that although we feel hot here on the East Coast, we probably are relatively cool compared to some other areas. Also, he said that the heat index calculations may need some updating and we figure that right now heat index allows us to share with each other whose number is bigger. Sean also says to be on the lookout because Hurricane Don will be next so that means we can prepare to ceremoniously give Don Beam his new name.

Joel swept off the old soap box and got on top to discuss the debt ceiling problem with President Obama's new scare tactics or threat about suspending Social Security checks in August. So now he has beaten down the poor, he has bitch-slapped the middle class and now he will mug the elderly. It seems that he is asking for an escort right out of the oval office. Stay Tuned...

Tonight was the monthly segment with Kay Stout that we call Ideas For A Challenging Economy. Tonight we ask the question: If someone is looking to possibly relocate geographically, where are the best opportunities? Kay says that number 1 on her list is Texas. She said that as a whole, the State of Texas is growing very large in business and is a great place with a great diverse people and climate. Second choice is North Dakota which she states if you can stand freezing winters and hot summers, they have a very attractive 3.2% unemployment rate. Kay was then joined by voice artist Brian Richy and discussed with him his art of doing voice over work and they shared resources for people to perhaps tap into that inner self to draw out that outer voice. Find out more about him by visiting his website below.

Check out the video below on how to use it:


Question From Chat Room: How does heat affect a computer? It affects it very much in a negative way. You must ensure that a computer or laptop is kept cleaned inside and out so that air can move through the chassis and keep the heat moving out.

Not Guilty!?

Tonight on the show, we discussed the verdict which was handed down today on Casey Anthony, the mother accused of killing her two-year old child in 2008. The verdict was not guilty after 10 hours of deliberation by the jury. How do you feel about the verdict? If you need some background on the events, see the links below.

Then we discussed the 15 year old Winston Charleston who took his mother's car keys and her keys for a middle of the night joyride around Northeast Philadelphia causing an accident which left one dead and 7 injured. Now he will be tried as an adult. We really lost control over the youth of America, agreed?

Show Notes - 07/03/2011

Happy 4th Of July Weekend!

Tonight on the show, Joel and the gang were semi-officially off celebrating so madman producer Tony Richards was allowed to choose what got aired on the show.....ut oh, right?

We opened the show with a musical tribute to freedom followed by a rebroadcast of a special presentation of CBS Radio's "You Are There" series with host John Daly. By the way, should that name sound familiar to the older folks, there is a reason for it. John Daly, in particular, most remembered by the Wartime America audience as the first voice to describe the events of December 7, 1941 to an anxiously awaiting public, was chosen to 'host' the initial series. He was depicted more as the Chief Correspondent for the series. However, he is probably more recognized as the host using his full name of John Charles Daly on the TV game show, "What's My Line?" which followed about a decade later.

CBS went on to create a total of sixty-four unique historical docudramas during the program's three-year run. Many of the scripts were so accurate and realistic that they were employed almost verbatim once the Television version of You Are There eventually aired over CBS from 1953-1958. The Television version was 'hosted' by Walter Cronkite
.

After that, we ran an earlier guest appearance by former FBI agent now turned book author Jack Owens, who wrote the book "Don't Shoot Us - We're Republicans!". The book, and Jack both are full of some of the fun times you will never hear about while being an FBI agent and what it was like working in the FBI for thirty years as a field officer. It is a fun, fast paced read and what happens to Jack along the way is....well... listen and find out!

A link to purchasing his book can be found below in the Links section.
