On the March 5th 2014 episode of Liberal Dan Radio:
Good old Vlad Putin is at it again, this time invading the Ukraine. Of course this means the Conservatives are at it again as well. The warmonger side of the party just wants to blow everything up it can. The tea party side finds fault with everything Obama does. And some people who are sandwiched in between the establishment GOP and the Tea Party are proving themselves to be major hypocrites (beyond the normal Conservative hypocrisy).
In news related to the Ukraine, people are now hailing Palin as a genius for supposedly predicting Putin going into Ukraine. They are also suggesting that Obama is handling the situation irresponsibly by “missing” security meetings. I will go into why that is a bunch of rubbish as well.
A student in New Jersey is suing her parents to cover tuition for High School and College and for other expenses pertaining to her being dependent on her parents for support. She does seem like a spoiled brat but I will discuss why many people are missing some very important facts here and how the parents are no angels either.
I will discuss what I am giving up for Lent and discuss if the lenten season is really a sacrifice to those of use who are not land locked.
Finally, I will go over some of the shootings I have discussed from Merritt Landry to Marissa Alexander.
That, headlines, tweet of the week, words of redneck wisdom and more tonight on Liberal Dan Radio: Talk From The Left, That’s Right.
This time on Fat Man Rants I discuss the recent veto of the Jim Crow type laws proposed in Arizona for gay people.

Old E.W.E, otherwise known as Edwin Edwards, the former governor of Louisiana and convicted felon is apparently mulling a run for Congress. When asked, Edwards stated that he didn’t have any comment at this time. This is otherwise political speech for “yes, I intend to”. Until we get a final answer from former Governor Edwards, I have some thoughts on the issue.
Last year the Louisiana food stamp program had an error which caused to some people to overcharge their cards for food. I will talk about how many people were punished for what the GOP calls rampant fraud and abuse.
Mardi Gras is coming up next week in the City of New Orleans. Some new laws have been passed to cover some activities along the parade route. I will talk about some of those and if they are good for the city.
And finally I have to talk about the Michael Dunn case. He was found guilty on most charges. I will explain why this isn’t the travesty of justice that some are claiming as well as why it also doesn’t mean that Florida is in the clear.
Those topics, tweet of the week, words of redneck wisdom, headlines and more tonight on Liberal Dan Radio: Talk From The Left, That’s Right.
Rush is my favorite band. I feel they are oft overlooked for their talent. That they only just recently made the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is evidence of how long it took for them to get respect by the business. So I am always happily surprised when I hear their music used in ways other than entertainment.
The song Working Man is one of my favorites. Watching the Sochi Olympics I heard the song come on and was wondering what this ad might be for. Turns out, it is for Walmart.
Here is the commercial:
On the February 12th Episode of Liberal Dan Radio:
I will be throwing the topics to you guys. If you feel like talking about something, bring it on. Open lines, open chat room… as long as you have open minds I welcome you to the debate.
If you do not call in I can talk about a variety of issues like the conviction of Ray Nagin and what it means for Louisiana and the perception of corruption and how that is often skewed.
If there is time I will also discuss today’s ruling in KY requiring them to accept gay marriages from other states. I will discuss why the ruling doesn’t completely overturn the KY marriage ban and what needs to happen from here.
All those topics plus tweet of the week, headlines, words of redneck wisdom and more tonight on Liberal Dan Radio: Talk From The Left, That’s Right.
Also, I have enterred the small business, big grant contest by FedEx. Please remember to vote once a day, every day, until the end of the contest for Liberal Dan Radio.
On the Wednesday January 29, 2014 episode of Liberal Dan Radio:
A recap of the State of the Union address. What was good? What was bad? How many GOP responses did they have and did they bring any discussion worthy of merit to the table?
Also, what was called the “sneauxpocalypse” was more like the “neauxpocalypse” (at least in New Orleans). I will talk about how the south is embarassingly incompetent in dealing with winter weather and why we should reconsider private control of our entergy infrastructure.
All that, tweet of the week, words of redneck wisdom, headlines and more tonight on Liberal Dan Radio: Talk From The Left, That’s Right!
David Vitter is running for Governor. His involvement with prostitutes in his past is bound to be a major issue that opponents bring up. In the most recent episode of Liberal Dan Radio I even brought up why Vitter is violated his own stated principles by not resigning from office and by continuing to seek elected office after cheating on his wife, especially in the illegal way that he committed adultery (i.e. with prostitutes).
I also think it is important that we expose the prostitutes that David Vitter does business with. No, I am not speaking of the sex workers. I am speaking of the political opportunists and hypocrites who swam to support David Vitter who would otherwise not do so.
In regards to the Vitter candidacy, Gene Mills (President of the Louisiana Family Forum) stated:
Sen. Vitter has been a stellar example of the conservative legislator… From a biblical standpoint, David sought counseling form his church (after the 2007 DC Madam scandal). He sought counseling and reconciliation with his wife…I think it’s probably a healthy example of how imperfect hearts — how this world is made up of only that.
Now, are we to believe that such a statement would have been made for a liberal who had been caught up in a sex scandal? Even in Louisiana, Republicans who drift from their path that they are supposed to follow are shunned. So what is going on here? Why is this ultra socially conservative group support a “whoremonger”?
The answer is clear: Money. In FY 2008 Senator Vitter earmarked funds for the Louisiana Family Forum in the amount of $100,000 to help them promote faith based creation “science”. After the controversy over that earmark, the funds were moved to Ouachita Parish School Board, an entity that consistently promotes creationist ideas and has close ties to the Louisiana Family Forum. Vitter has also hired members of the Louisiana Family Forum on his campaigns, showing an additional financial closeness between himself and the LFF.
It seems clear to this blogger that the Louisiana Family Forum is willing to bend over backwards (or forwards) for any sinful politician that sends money their way, especially for one Senator David Vitter. This is why they are clearly one of the David Vitter Prostitutes.
On the January 22nd, 2014 episode of Liberal Dan Radio:
The worst kept secret in Louisiana politics was revealed this week. Louisiana’s junior senator David Vitter has announced his candidacy for governor. Current governor Bobby Jindal is term limited and has to sit out a term before running again. Vitter is already pushing a “family values” campaign via his surrogates and that means the gloves come off when it comes to his involvement in the DC Madam scandal. Regardless of his “serious sins” I will go into why Vitter is bad for Louisiana. I will also explain why his own words make him inelligible to serve office according to his own standards.
Florida is at it again. Yet another shooting has taken place for no reason. Curtis Reeves, a former police captain, shot somebody over him sending text messages during the previews. And, of course, Reeves is claiming “self defense”. Now, nobody can say if that claim will be successful in court until the trial happens. However, if it does, this will be evidence that Florida law is absolutely ridiculous.
A Milwaukee couple was running a private, Christian, voucher school and that school abruptly closed down last month. What students did they serve? What happens to them now? And where are the owners? The answers to at least some might surprise you.
All that plus and update on the New Orleans noise ordinance, headlines, tweet of the week, words of redneck wisdom, and more this week on Liberal Dan Radio: Talk From The Left, That’s Right.
On the January 15th, 2014 episode of Liberal Dan Radio:
There is a proposed noise ordinance in the City of New Orleans that will be debated this week at City Hall. It will cover loud music in the French Quarter. Are local businesses allowing their music to play too loud? Or are people wanting to change the culture of New Orleans from what it is to something different? Is there a constitutional right to make noise? I will go into those issues and I plan to have guests on to discuss the issue.
I also plan on discussing the West Virginia chemical spill. Could it have been prevented? Why does this help prove that Republicans just don’t have our best interests in mind.
Those issues, tweet of the week, words of redneck wisdom, headlines and more on Liberal Dan Radio: Talk From The Left, That’s Right!
On the January 8th, 2014 episode of Liberal Dan Radio:
First a shout-out to the Good Men Project for republishing my post about Phil Robertson and his comments about marrying 15 year olds. Go check out their site.
There is a picture going around Facebook that supposedly proves why Walmart cannot raise hourly wages to a minimum of $15 an hour. Perhaps you have seen it or not. Either way, I will debunk the image and show why none of the information on it should be believed.
Rapist from Steubenville, Ma’lik Richmond, was released from prison this past week. The statment from his lawyer was one of the most disgusting piece of rape apologia I have ever read. I will go over what was said and why the statement was completely irresponsible.
Finally, as a gag gift for the holidays, I received a coloring book that told me all about the wonder that is Ted Cruz. I have posted a few images on the show slideshow. Any parent who gets these kinds of coloring books for their children should be reported for child abuse. It is really sad.
