Podcasting Liberally

This week’s edition of the Drinking Liberally podcast was not quite as rowdy as last week, but with the final recommendations announced by the CAC a mere hours before taping, Goldy was still in rare form since his daughter’s school was left on the chopping block.

The usual suspects, Will, Carl, Lee and myself, were joined by Lynn Dodson, candidate for State Representative of the 43rd legislative district (my district in fact) who weighed in on the school closure debate and stated clearly that she is of course for marriage equality.

When Lynn had to leave us, Gavin valiantly filled the seat as we discussed Haditha, immigration, Bush’s problems with his base and Will proposed controversial escalator etiquette.

The show is available here as a 38.8 MB MP3 and you can visit Podcasting Liberally for RSS feeds and archives.

The reason Goldy's school is still on the chopping block is the same reason the Supreme Court has decided public employees have no right to voice objection or whistleblow. They are suppressing dissent. Goldy's school teaches problem-solving skills rather than rote memorization, monotonous number crunching and conformity. Neo-conservatives are dumbing down the population in preparation for their worst schemes. Remember, there are 2 kinds of people in the world: the Rich and the Workers.

Anonymous--Yes, critical thinking and problem solving must be stamped out at all costs. I'm glad that the Seattle School Board is on board with a plan that will do just that.

Lester--Yes we do drink on the job, I've made the mistake of having one too many with a mic in front of my mouth before (luckily this wasn't one of those times).

Leaster Bunny--I have to agree with Pat on this one (it happens every once in a while). I think he is correct when it comes to the Palestinians, he may reach his beliefs from a different place (anti-Semitism perhaps), but I find his conclusions right on.

Ansel--Thanks for stopping by. I had a great time doing S2D, I'm getting better at this multi-media thing (although I'm still not thrilled with television, too nerve-racking).

sidenote--my word verification "word" for this comment was lefdsz. You got that right!

lgnd- Pat's writing on foreign policy and his public persona are two entirely different universes. I always saw him as a pretty typical far right kook, but his stuff on this administration is simply outstanding. largely begining with the essay "who's war"? .

I think his secret is he simply knows how the world works and knows how to be pragmatic. When he worked for Nixon, he had to write the words for a toast nixon was giving to chairman Mao in beijing. even though he was a dyed in the wool barry goldwater republican, he did it.

He also put the reagan white house back together after iran-contra.

Plus, he's super intelligent. In his book "where the right went wrong" he begins the chapter on islamic terrorism by giving the history of islam and the history of terrorism. he's just on a higher plane.

if you couldn't tell, I'm a bit of a fan.
