Liberal Dan Radio 04/28/2020: The Rona Is Making Everyone Crazy

On the April 29, 2020 episode of Liberal Dan Radio

Is it time to go back and resume normalcy? Many people would have you believe that this is the case. Some states are continuing the shelter in place orders, but other states are pushing way to hard to go back “to normal” which will have disasterous effects. 

A bunch of Bernie Sanders supporters want him to get back in the race and are upset over the fact that New York is cancelling the primaries. I will discuss why these people are jumping the shark.

I will also be going over a conversation that I had with a conspiracy theories (get a preview on the Liberal Dan Facebook Page). 

Those issues and more, Wednesday April 29, 2020 at 8PM central on Liberal Dan Radio, Talk from the Left, That’s Right. 

You are of course welcome to call in if you are listening live (or you can join the chat). If you are listening after the live broadcast you can leave comments on the show thread at liberaldan.com, on the Liberal Dan Facebook page, and @liberaldanradio on Twitter.

“But they’re the same!”

I know the majority of Bernie Sanders supporters will be voting for Joe Biden in the fall. They understand what is at stake. However, just like 2016 there is a large enough section of people who supported Bernie in the primaries who are threatening to jump ship. In some cases these people even voted for Trump in 2016.

So what do you say when these particular Bernie Sanders supporters try and claim that Biden and Trump are the same and that we are just “centrists”?

I bring up the Supreme Court.

Trump could very well promote Amy Comey Barret to the Supreme Court if RBG resigns or passes away.

That would kill abortion rights and LGBTQ rights in this country. Goodbye Roe v Wade. Goodbye Obergefell V Hodges. Hell, goodbye Lawrence v Texas!

Biden is not going to promote someone to SCOTUS who will overturn those rulings.

Are you gonna blame “centrists” if Trump is able to win and kill abortion rights in this country ? I am progressive and extremist AF on abortion rights. There should be no exceptions to when a pregnant person should be able to abort.

Would I prefer Biden be for Medicare for all? Sure.

Guess what? Bernie would have needed a Congress that would have enacted M4A. So work to elect that Congress. Get that bill on Biden’s desk with a way to pay for it. (Biden said he wouldn’t sign M4A if it is wasn’t paid for) Force his hand.

Bernie would have needed a Congress to enact legislation to ban fracking. Elect that Congress. Force Biden’s hand.

Bernie would have needed a Congress that would have passed green new deal energy bills. Elect that Congress anyway. Force Biden’s hand. But don’t sit by and let Trump name the next one or two SCOTUS nominees.

*This of course is irrelevant in many of the other safe red states. I see no evidence that Louisiana will do anything but vote Trump. So if you live in Louisiana, or any other safe red state, I couldn’t care less who you vote for.

But in states like MI/WI/PA/FL etc, voting third party, writing Bernie in, or doing anything other than voting for the Democratic nominee will set us back decades.

And if you want to label me a centrist for that? Then I question your definitions.

I will be discussing the horrible mishanding of the pandemic by this administration in the first half hour of the show.

Liberal Dan Radio 3/18/2020: Is Taxation Theft?

On the March 18, 2020 episode of Liberal Dan Radio I will be discussing the Corona virus outbreak. What is new and what is problematic. Why is Trump handling it so badly. 

I will also be discussing the 2020 Democratic primaries. Are they over yet? Is it worth it for Bernie to stay in the election? 

And at the bottom half of hour number one, I will be bringing on Dan “Taxation is theft” Behrman on the show. He is a candidate for President running in the Liberarian primaries. I have some questions about how the primaries work for the Libertarian party and I will also have a discussion with him about his platform, including how it relates to the Covid 19 outbreak.

Liberal Dan Radio 03/11/2020: Do you need to be educated on transgender individuals?

On the March 11, 2020 episode of Liberal Dan Radio I will be continuing the discussion of the Democratic Primaries. Was I right about Mississippi? Did Bernie Sanders continue to give up delegates at a 2 for 1 rate in the southern states? Who has the current advantage? Who has dropped out (if anybody)? 

And then at the bottom half of the hour, I will be inviting Evey Winters, an activist for LGBTQ+ rights, writer, political science major, and connoisseur of hot sauce, to discuss an array of topics dealing with transgender individuals, rights, and how to educate the cis folk out there on how to be better allies. We might discuss some hot sauce as well.

On the March 4, 2020 Episode of Liberal Dan Radio I will be discussing the results of Super Tuesday. 

How did Joe Biden have such a great night? Why did Bernie Sanders not do as well as he would have liked. 

Why am I referring to this as “Bernie’s Blunder”? Is there a better name.

On the February 26, 2020 episode of Liberal Dan Radio

The Democratic Primaries are heating up, and with Super Tuesday around the corner, what candidates are going to be getting the inside track on the nomination? I will discuss that here as well as a discussion about common misconceptions about how these primaries work and why I believe the primary states are still undemocratic. 

Also, I will be discussing a topic brought up by someone on Twitter as it pertains to the Corvid19 and today’s holiday. Trump has also made an announcement on who is in charge of handling the virus in the USA and we should all be terrified 

Those topics, Words of Redneck Wisdom, and more this week on Liberal Dan Radio: Talk From The Left, That’s Right.

On the January 15, 2020 episode of Liberal Dan Radio I will be opening the show to whatever topic you wish to discuss. If you don’t call, it will be just a bunch of rambling about Trump, ATT TV, and other topics I choose to discuss. (I will definitely be discussing Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders and I might leave Madow on in the background just in case anything fun happens there).
