It is amazing what politicians say when they think no one will stop to listen to them. In this case, candidate Anthony Brindisi reiterates the threat of shutting down the Government - with a promise to harm the elderly, veterans and our military - unless criminals are rewarded like he wants. This is the pitch to gain votes. Not very attractive when you strip away the emotional shield and evaluate exactly what he said - but listen to the episode and see for yourself.

Had a great discussion with musician and songwriter Dan Pokorak about just about everything going on in politics at this time. Oprah for President, President Donald Trump, Haiti, Hawaii, nuclear arms talks with North Korea, regime change in Iran and more. Along the way we even agreed a bit. It was a great conversation, but please leave your thoughts and questions. If we get 100 likes, Dan is willing to come back for more - so like and share with all your friends.

Season 2 starts 2018 with the topic everyone has been discussing, Oprah for President. But is the hype justified? How much more will politics and entertainment mix? Plus, since we are talking about the 1%, just how wealthy are we in America?

"There is no intrinsic benefit because you check the box. What is intrinsically true is that because you are being categorized you are being minimalized. You're being diminished, because you are no more important than the box that you fill. That's an important thing to keep in mind."

Sorry for the delay, but as discussed in the podcast there were some health issues. But that is just one of the Public Service Announcements (PSA) in the show. Beyond that, the implications of the recent and on-going revelations on sexual assault are discussed, as well as plans for a bigger and better 2018. Let us know your thoughts.

Its not just the separate standards for sexual assault that is the issue. Examples like Hillary Clinton, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, Assemblyman Anthony Brindisi, and Dan Livingston so how deep this rabbit hole goes.
