Episode 287: Twisted Reality

2013-06-27 :: conservativepodcast@gmail.com (Hatton Humphrey & Ken Johnston)

A lively conversation from the start! Some of us were worried that the strange tales our articles explained would make heads melt while others said it was nothing out of the ordinary. Take a listen for yourself and decide which!

My apologies for the late posting. The end of the school year has had our schedules a bit twisted.

2013-06-23 :: conservativepodcast@gmail.com (Hatton Humphrey & Ken Johnston)

As the news week started for this episode, I felt my reality getting turned upside down. The articles for this episode reflect some of the reasons for that. We've got examples of people sounding like their ideological opposites and a view of legal rights that downright scary.

Episode 286: Modern America

2013-06-16 :: conservativepodcast@gmail.com (Hatton Humphrey & Ken Johnston)

After something of a soft start, this epsiode gets rolling on some of the more frequently discussed issues of the past week. That's something of a departure for us, but one that needs to be made from time to time. Even though it wasn't on the list we even got in some conversation about Syria and the NSA leaker.

There was a great turn-out both on TalkShoe and in Second Life. If you find yourself free on a Sunday evening, stop by and join us. We'd love to have you as a part of the conversation!

It's true that we're living in a different kind of America than the founders. Technology has taken the country places never imagined, yet that does not mean our current crop of professional politicians have no precedent for how to do the people's work. In this episode we're looking at how technology is challenging and changing the way America moves forward.

Episode 285: Addressing Growth

2013-06-09 :: conservativepodcast@gmail.com (Hatton Humphrey & Ken Johnston)

Quite the interesting discussion in this episode, first with Mike Garcar, Field Director for the Ohio College Republican Foundation and then with Fabian Story, a man with a lot of campaign experience under his own belt. Unfortunately Mike was not able to stay with us for the whole show and we hope he can join us again!

This was one of those episodes, however, where we didn't even make it into the opening article. This means that we'll need to take time during the week to talk about some of them.

As time marches on, one thing that has to be considered by any organization is how it can expand membership for the future. Tonight we have a special guest, Mike Garcar, Field Director for the Ohio College Republican Federation. We'll be talking with him about the challenges that the GOP faces reaching out to the millennial generation.

We've also got our regular round of articles that we'll be discussing, hopefully with Mike joining us to add his perspective, so it's going to be a busy show!

Episode 284: For Their Own Good

2013-06-03 :: conservativepodcast@gmail.com (Hatton Humphrey & Ken Johnston)

It seems I managed to pull in articles that got everyone's blood boiling! This episode has to be one of the more lively in some time, and not because of bad jokes. All of our callers and a few folks in SecondLife had thoughts to add to the conversation

In our next episode we'll be talking with Mike Garcar, a Field Director for the Ohio College Republican Federation, Romney campaign worker and upcoming author. We'll be talking about his observations about engaging the millennial generation.

One of the things we count on elected and appointed officials to do is act in the best interests of their constituents. In this episode we are going to look at actions that have been taken where this does not seem to be the case. From those who have won elections down to school officials, it seems that reactions and plans are more of an assault on sensibility than anything.

Episode 283: Disagreeable Listeners

2013-05-27 :: conservativepodcast@gmail.com (Hatton Humphrey & Ken Johnston)

This was quite the interesting show, with an opening conversation about Memorial Day followed by a very good discussion on the subject. Some of the conversation got rather interesting and there were some good points brought up. There are also some examples where the group didn't agree, yet we managed to follow our own rule of disagreeing without being disagreeable.

As we discussed during that opening segment, I hope everyone has/had a safe and happy Memorial Day!

It's no secret that there are lots of things we hear in the news that we don't like. That's part of the basis and material for this podcast! In this episode, however, we're going to talk what some of the things that elected and public officials are saying they are hearing and don't like. It seems that the distaste for the goings-on in the beltway (and some places beyond) are hitting people from all political bents the wrong way.

2013-05-19 :: conservativepodcast@gmail.com (Hatton Humphrey & Ken Johnston)

There are times when maintaining civility in political discourse is going to be a challenging task. This is one such week, as the articles for the show attest. We're going to try to get through a conversation about these with the best possible attitude. Should be an interesting challenge!

Episode 282: Making Life Difficult

2013-05-19 :: conservativepodcast@gmail.com (Hatton Humphrey & Ken Johnston)

Wow, talking about making life difficult indeed! First, there have been technical issues with TalkShoe for the last two weeks. Then we throw in my own verbal malfunctions during the show, and the subjects and excellent turnout made this an episode that was fun and frustrating at the same time. We had great input from all of our guests, both in TalkShoe and in Second Life. If you haven't been able to make a live recording session, I'd invite you to do so!

We did work very hard to keep the conversation civil. Sometimes we didn't stay on the list of articles but that just added spice to the conversation. Definitely worth the listen. One administrative note. Due to technical confusion, last week's episode did not make it to the Red State Talk Radio network on time. It will be running until Wednesday, when this episode will replace it. We'll be back on schedule there starting with the next episode.

This episode turned out well despite TalkShoe's best efforts! There were some technical difficulties causing the live recording to be delayed and I had limited control until the end of the show. Regardless, we had a good time talking about the popular issues from the past week from a different angle.

2013-05-12 :: conservativepodcast@gmail.com (Hatton Humphrey & Ken Johnston)

During the last episode I talked about keeping the conversation civil, not being insulting or defamatory and looking at examples of stories where that didn't happen. Those concepts only work if both sides are playing by the same rules. It's apparent that this isn't the case, as is pointed out in the articles for this episode. The question is, what do we do about that and how should it be addressed moving forward?

Episode 280: Communication Necessities

2013-05-10 :: conservativepodcast@gmail.com (Hatton Humphrey & Ken Johnston)

Administrative comment: Continually apologizing for the late posts and then posting late the following week is getting a tad repetitive, so I'll explain rather than make excuses. There are some big things being planned for the podcast as well as a new endeavor. Nothing is going to change for quite some time (in Internet terms of time, at least), however if you're a blogger, podcaster or vodcaster that is interested in hearing more about the rumblings of an interesting project, contact me directly.

This week we talked about the things necessary for a good, civil conversation. We also identified the real definition of the concept and also what it is not. Civility does not equate with watering down or with changing a message just to make it palatable to a wide audience. If you want to hear more, listen to the podcast!

Video Comment 10: Leveling the Playing Field

2013-05-05 :: conservativepodcast@gmail.com (Hatton Humphrey & Ken Johnston)

This one was recorded a little over a week ago (springtime brings posting delays, as many know) but is definitely a relevant issue.

Whenever you hear the term "level playing field" come out of the mouths of politicians, ask yourself the two logical questions I posed back in video comment #8.  In this latest abuse of the sports reference, they're talking about the Internet Sales Tax.  Here are my thoughts on that:

Episode 279: Are They Even Trying?

2013-05-02 :: conservativepodcast@gmail.com (Hatton Humphrey & Ken Johnston)

Another week, another late posting for an episode... I'm working not to make a habit of this, sorry again. This episode was a lot of fun, especially when it came to the jokes. I'm pretty sure we haven't had this irreverent of an episode in quite some time! Ken wasn't with us but Larry stepped in quite well.

We also had the chance to have a follow up conversation about home-schooling and some of the differences that were expressed between Larry and I. One of the great things about our show is the fact that we can disagree without being disagreeable and last week's episode left a something of a bitter taste that needed to be addressed.

A bit late getting this episode posted to the website, sorry about that. It was a good conversation about the events in Boston, while working hard to discuss new items and not simply go on about the same issues everyone else had been talking about.

There was quite the conversation about schooling, especially home schooling in light of some of the articles that have come out lately. Which camp do you fall in? Do you think parents should keep their kids in the system and fight the bureaucracy from within or pull their kids out and challenge the system on behalf of others?

Articles for Episode 278: Safety Precautions

2013-04-21 :: conservativepodcast@gmail.com (Hatton Humphrey & Ken Johnston)

After the events of the past week, what are we doing to keep things safe? What's happening in the government to maintain security levels and how are educators working to help our children stay safe? Based on the articles for this episode, it's a rather confusing and twisted answer. Join us to discuss these and other things!

While it's not on the article list, we will be talking about the bombing in Boston as well.  I am specifically not including any of the "liberals had their mind made up," "Bostonians gave up their guns" or any other of the rants that have been flowing around the 'net with reckless abandon.  We're really shooting for, "different words in a different order," this week.

Episode 277: Do You Hear What I Hear

2013-04-15 :: conservativepodcast@gmail.com (Hatton Humphrey & Ken Johnston)

This episode introduces a slightly different format, with part of the intro moved to the ending which lets us get started much faster. It was a fun episode, though there are a couple of areas where I should have censored Shorahmin. We'll forgive him his BS lines... though the media is offered no similar reprieve.

2013-04-14 :: conservativepodcast@gmail.com (Hatton Humphrey & Ken Johnston)

When you're listening to the news (or watching or reading), what do you hear? What do you see? There's an element of control that is being exerted by both the media and political groups. We've said this before but there are some really big examples of stories that won't be getting that much exposure but still need to be known.

Articles for this episode:
(Gun Control) Circus elephant hit in drive-by shooting (Margaret Thatcher) Like Her Friend Ronald Reagan, Margaret Thatcher Just Wouldn't Cut It In Today's GOP (Gun Control) New York Police Confiscating Firearms from People Taking Anti-anxiety Medication (Abortion) The monstrous abortion trial the media don’t want you to know about (Gay Agenda) Protect the freedom to criticize gay marriage (Hypocricy) ABC Hypes 'Startling Secret Tape' of Mitch McConnell and Aides 'Scheming' Against Ashley Judd (Taxes and Spending) Government Wastes More Than Sequester Saves (Investments) Fisker Auto founders, fires furloughed employees, preps for bankruptcy (Media Bias) What Bias?

Video Comment 9: When is it Conspiracy?

2013-04-12 :: conservativepodcast@gmail.com (Hatton Humphrey & Ken Johnston)


So there are times when something sounds like a tinfoil-hat conspiracy, but what is that tipping point?  In this video I talk about the claim made by an attorney that police actions to confiscate his weapons weren't accidental, rather they were an attempt to see how far the NY SAFE Act could be pushed.


How much of this is real and how much is paranoia is something the general public may never know.  Here's a link to part of the story: http://www.wben.com/pages/16021389.php?contentType=4&contentId=12784239  I've tweeted other relevant articles as well.

Video Comment 8: Two Logical Questions

2013-04-10 :: conservativepodcast@gmail.com (Hatton Humphrey & Ken Johnston)

Well, the morning commute concept seems to work well and so I put it to use yet again.  Never fear, when you see both hands off the wheel, I'm stopped!

While I bring up two specific issues in this video episode, the questions I raise can be asked of any political response to "an issue."  It happens that as examples I use gun control and standardized testing.

Video Comment 7: Nerdy Dirty Words

2013-04-07 :: conservativepodcast@gmail.com (Hatton Humphrey & Ken Johnston)

I've moved the video comment recording from the house into the car and like the results.  In this video I share the concept of a game that my kids have been playing called the "Nerdy Dirty Word" where you take an every-day word and turn it into a game of verbal tag.  This seems to be a running game that politicians and the media use, though we put the label "hot-button issue" on it.

Non-Political Rant: The Reality TV Farce

2013-03-27 :: conservativepodcast@gmail.com (Hatton Humphrey & Ken Johnston)

I put this on Facebook last night after discovering the latest "Celeb-reality" TV show.  I know it isn't political but for me it just points out that some people will watch anything!

I have to vent for a minute - not about politics, but about TV and the latest "Celeb-Reality" show. Folks, I'm talking about ABC's Splash. That's right, from the network that brought us great things like "Extreme Makeover, Home Edition", "The Sing Off", "Dancing With the Stars" (hey, I don't like it but it's apparently got legs for the market) we now have a TV show with stars in a *diving competition*.

Lately it seems like everything is being presented with some underlying tactical perspective. It's not about side or party, it seems more about staying in power and getting one in over the other guy. In this episode we're going to be talking about the tactics being employed by both political parties to achieve that goal. Whether it's for the good of the country or not is a different question that we'll try to raise as well.

Watching the news and events that happen on a weekly basis, I've come to the conclusion that there is some serious manipulating going on by either the President or someone close to him. In this episode we're going to look at some blatant examples of this.

After this episode's recording we are back to our normal Sunday night recording schedule!

 Thanks to everyone for working with us on the change and for your continued support! Articles for this episode:

2013-02-19 :: conservativepodcast@gmail.com (Hatton Humphrey & Ken Johnston)

We talk about having living in a free country, and over the years what that has meant has changed. It's been stretched, poked and prodded where some things have changed and others have stayed the same. In this episode we're going to take a look at the latest round of attempts to change things.

A quick administrative note: This week we will be recording at our usual time, however for the last two weekends of this month we will be recording on Monday nights at 8:30pm instead of Sunday nights.

2013-02-03 :: conservativepodcast@gmail.com (Hatton Humphrey & Ken Johnston)

This week we looked at a few different issues and proposals that are being discussed and asked the question, "but will it work?"

Episode 266: Moves Toward Change

2013-01-29 :: conservativepodcast@gmail.com (Hatton Humphrey & Ken Johnston)

The concept for this episode was to discuss some of the things that were moving forward with the GOP and conservative ideas. We looked at the question, "is it enough?" The answer came back an underwhelming, "maybe."  There's a lot more to talk about but we're somewhat encouraged by Rep. Ryan's concept of, "pick your battles."  The important question is whether or not the Republican leadership will follow through with this.

We've gotten some responses from our product poll and are working on designs for coffee cups, mugs, bumper stickers, and other non-clothing type items. Look for a link to our new store to be online starting in February!

Episode 265: Looking for the Reasons

2013-01-20 :: conservativepodcast@gmail.com (Hatton Humphrey & Ken Johnston)

This was a tough episode to put together, as can be seen with the flood of articles in the show notes page. We have our new listener and participant Naj to thank for the subject of tonight's show, trying to at least start a conversation on the reasons behind the violence that doesn't often make national headlines like the sensational stories do. It was an educational and encouraging conversation to say the least!

2013-01-13 :: conservativepodcast@gmail.com (Hatton Humphrey & Ken Johnston)

2013-01-13 :: conservativepodcast@gmail.com (Hatton Humphrey & Ken Johnston)

Looking over the articles that were collected over the past week, it was rather difficult to settle on a single subject for this episode. I ended up picking three issues that are currently being bandied about by the media and political pundits so we could add our input to them.

Before I give the list of articles, I also wanted to share a new site that I found that isn't really an article. Pop Vox is a site that allows you to see bills that are going through the cogs of our political machine and share your opinions on them.

Here are the articles for this episode:

US troops will end 'most' Afghanistan combat this spring Republicans should start acting like Obama Conservatives Take Aim at Pork-laden $50 Billion Sandy Aid Bill NRA Head: Registry Of Gun Owners Would Be Very Dangerous Connecticut lawmaker wants names of gun owners to be made public Quentin Tarantino Has Heated Exchange With UK Journalist On Film Violence, Says “I’m Not Your Slave”: Video SENATE REPORT: STATE DEPARTMENT 'FAILED TRAGICALLY' AT BENGHAZI INDICTED BUSINESSMAN NAMES HARRY REID AS ALLEGED RECIPIENT OF MASSIVE BRIBE Like I said, there were a lot of articles to pick from this week.

2013-01-08 :: conservativepodcast@gmail.com (Hatton Humphrey & Ken Johnston)

Well, true to the subject there were lots of "broken" things to discuss.  It was an enjoyable time but also rather eye-opening when it comes to the American standards that seem to be in serious need of repair.

We've made it to 2013 and it starts much the same way 2012 started: with a broken federal government. The only difference now is that things have gone just that much further down the path.

Here are the articles we're going to discuss tonight:

Episode 262: Lemmings or Thelma and Louise?

It's funny what happens when you plan out an episode like this one.  I wasn't sure what the call-in volume was going to be like and it turned out to be pretty big!  My co-worker Marshall joined us (he's the one that stated that, "know I know how Juan Willaims feels.") as well as just about the entire regular crew!  The show started off somber but when we started the political talk it turned into something else entirely!

It's the end of 2012 and it looks like our pals inside the beltway are all auditioning for the role of Enigmatic Good/Bad Guy. It appears that the nation is going rumble past that dreaded deadline for sequestration. We're going to try and figure out if it's because the folks in DC are more like Thelma and Louise or lemmings.

2012-12-23 :: conservativepodcast@gmail.com (Hatton Humphrey & Ken Johnston)

This episode is being recorded earlier in the day (2:00pm Eastern) due to a scheduling conflict this evening.

What can I say? There are some folks that just deserve coal in their stockings. We're going to be talking about them, and some that don't deserve it as well. We didn't want to talk about just the gun issue, but it is on the list today.

Something of an odd Christmas present, but the show's recorded and ready for download several hours early!  There was a scheduling conflict so Ken and I decided that rather than push the recording off we'd do the show at 2pm today.
We talked about the folks that should and should not get a lump of coal for Christmas this year.  I'll be posting a picture of my new voter registration card as well, following up on a promise made a few episodes back.

Episode 260: For the Children

2012-12-16 :: conservativepodcast@gmail.com (Hatton Humphrey & Ken Johnston)

This was, by and far, one of the most difficult episodes to decide to do.  In the end, I felt that we would be negligent in our duty if we did not.  As I state in the opening of the podcast, we are still coming to grips with the realities of what happened on 12/14/2012.  That said, there are political ramifications of the two "hot button" areas that are being blamed.

As heavy as my heart was going in to the recording, my loving son helped me in his own way - our "moment of silence" was interrupted when he decided he needed his daddy for something, and nothing can stop him when that happens.

After last week's episode I felt I had to come up with some avenue to start a conversation about truly effecting some level of change in our country.  There was a letter to the editor brought up on Facebook today and I decided to use it as a gateway for conversation about some of the cultural issues impacting the fiscal stability of the nation.

Articles for Episode 258: Failures At Home and Abroad

2012-12-02 :: conservativepodcast@gmail.com (Hatton Humphrey & Ken Johnston)

Back to our regular time, we've got a bit of a doozie planned. Heading into the end of the year we see the status quo acting exactly as expected. There are things that need to be dealt with both domestically and abroad and the handling of it leaves much to be desired.

Before we get into the articles, I have to ask a favor. Please go to Red State Talk Radio's 2012 Talk Show of the Year poll and vote for our show. We can't do this without your support. Here are the articles for this episode:

Episode 257: A Season of Change

2012-11-26 :: conservativepodcast@gmail.com (Hatton Humphrey & Ken Johnston)

For a late recording show, we had a good turn-out when it came to the audience!  In this episode we did something of a panel with Ken, Shorahmin, Joesf and Toawa adding their thoughts to what happened in the 2012 election.  You'll have to listen to hear their take on just where the GOP took missteps and wrong turns!  We also talked about some of the upcoming "gotcha" items embedded in that lovely little bill we call Obamacare.
We actually used articles from the "other links" section of the show notes... I think more than from the main list!

2012-11-13 :: conservativepodcast@gmail.com (Hatton Humphrey & Ken Johnston)

This turned out to be part one of two interviews that we had originally planned.  Tim Heald is a former Army LRS Scout, discussed his experience with a politicized Department of Veteran's Affairs.  His blog can be found at Intolerable-Acts.org.  Specifically he is working to correct, "The VA’s abuse of the fiduciary program, and the violation of veterans’ 2nd Amendment Rights under the Constitution of the United States of America."

Episode 250: More Scary Political Games

2012-10-07 :: conservativepodcast@gmail.com (Hatton Humphrey & Ken Johnston)


Yeah, I know we could have talked more about the debate, unemployment or other things that have folks riled up.  There's a lot of issues happening and rather than just throw our two cents after what other folks have said, I always like to look for the stuff not on the front page.

Tonight we had Tom Clement, current Chair of the Republican Party of Second Life as well as my previously "mysterious" co-worker, Marshall, on the call!

As I said in the show notes article, we started the show off trying to stay positive... and for the most part we managed to succeed!  There were a few times that I had to remind Ken (and myself) of our goal but according to feedback from folks during the recording session we did a "fairly passable" job.  What do you think?

Episode 244: Framing the Debate

2012-08-27 :: conservativepodcast@gmail.com (Hatton Humphrey & Ken Johnston)

Wow!  Tonight's episode went as planned but it definitely had a few explosive moments... in the interest of showing that we're not all mind-numbed robots, there's an interesting exchange that you'll need to keep an ear out for somewhere in the audio.
We talked about the concept of "Framing the Debate" and asked one homework question: What good sound byte can our side make to reset various debate issues.  These include taxes (specifically the concept of the 1%) and abortion.  Tweet your ideas to me at @ECConservative or post them as a comment here.

Episode 243: What They Stand For

2012-08-21 :: conservativepodcast@gmail.com (Hatton Humphrey & Ken Johnston)

Back to our regular format, with Ken back and more news to discuss. We actually managed to get through almost all of the news articles for this episode... even when Ken added one to the list!

Click Here to download the podcast, or listen using the Blubrry player (the blue ball on the right of the page).

During the recording, there were a few things that ended up getting added or mentioned. They included a news article that Ken added about "Crumb and Get It", who told Joe Biden's advance team 'no' when they asked if the Vice President could stop by.

I made reference to an economics video that is currently playing in the Conservative University in Second Life that goes over some rather disturbing facts regarding taxes, spending and what it might take to cover the budget deficit as it exists today. I'll include that video in a separate post.

Finally, Shorahmin also mentioned a 1956 book by Edwin O'Connor entitled The Last Hurrah that was provided as recommended reading.

Episode 242: Analyzing Decisions

2012-08-13 :: conservativepodcast@gmail.com (Hatton Humphrey & Ken Johnston)

Well, this episode turned out almost exactly as I had expected it to - we didn't get to a single article in the list.  We didn't even get around to running an analysis of the acceptance speech given by Paul Ryan!  What we had instead was a very lively round-table with myself, Tom, Shorahmin, Joesf and Toawa.  We were also joined by Ron Skytower, host of the Conservative Matters podcast from days back.

While each of us had our own thoughts and opinions, we'd love to hear your answers to our round-table questions.  Let us know what you think about this new R2 ticket and where the campaign will go from here.
