I am back on the radio & taking calls on Saturday morning

To The Daily Sun,

Recently, Tony Boutin called to alert me of a gathering of writers/activists for lunch. While it might have been interesting, breaking bread with folks who dislike conservatives, and tend to say some nasty things — no constructive debate – and resort to name-calling, is not discussion. As for taking it and dishing it out, no problem for me, but it is a waste of time and life is short. It would be nice if more Americans could get involved, but many of those who share my political views are working. Or, perhaps, their employer does not want them to attend meetings or pen letters to the editor.

Someone tried that with me in 1974, in my first term as a city councilor. This was a good customer for my courier business. They found that I would lose their business before stabbing my constituents in the back. And, we did lose the account.

After 18 years (this week) of hosting my radio show I am back this Saturday from some repair work to take calls from like-minded listeners from across the country, and take calls from some of those writers/activists to have a conversation, if we are talking about issues.

It was most enjoyable State of the Union speech I've watched

To The Daily Sun,

A couple of years ago I read of a 25-year study's findings that adults who were very conservative were very whiney children. Crybabies. I know it's no surprise to folks who don't live in "Teabagistan."

After the burn our fine president put on the GOP at the State of the Union, we should all write our Republican representatives and suggest maybe its nap-time. I know The Daily Sun's conservative clown-car riders need naps. It's one temper tantrum after another.

It was the most enjoyable State of the Union speech I have ever watched. What's even funnier is to watch the post-speech reactions of the Tea Bag Brigade and the Christian Taliban. If you haven't seen the clips of Texastan's John Cornyn whining on "Fox and Friends" or Ted Cruz's epic fail at a rebuttal, they are must-sees.

Did I mention the Hog Whisperer? And the online memes are collectibles. Adding to the hilarity are the various fake news outlets that are raging about the president doubling down on his policies. As I said in November right after the election, "get ready for the hissy fits."

The extremist GOP agenda is DOA in the next Congress. They won't be able to get their pipeline of poison built. They won't be able to chip away at women's reproductive rights. They won't be able to put more sanctions on Iran at such a sensitive time in the talks. They will not be able to kill Dodd-Franks bank laws. They will not be able to take away people's health care. They will not be able move the country to the right. And if the Supreme Court decides against the federal subsidies of Obamacare, it will mean certain disaster for the GOP in 2016 as swing states turn bright, bright blue.
