Liberal Dan Radio 10/14/2015: Louisiana Election Season 2015

On the October 14, 2015 episode of Liberal Dan Radio I will be discussing many of the races going on in Louisiana. From the Governor on down I will discuss who i support and why. I will also talk about some of the issues being brought up in this race, from who stood up to Barack Obama the most to David Vitter and his “serious sins”.

And at the bottom half of the hour I will be interviewing Kara ‘Apple’ Washington, candidate for the Board of Elementary and Secondary Education in district 2.

Those issues, headlines, tweet of the week, and more this week at 8pm central on Liberal Dan Radio: Talk From The Left, That’s Right.

Liberal Dan Radio 4/8/2014: #CancelEverything

On the April 9, 2014 episode of Liberal Dan Radio:

Hashtags galore have been created dealing with the dissapointment some twitter users have with Stephen Colbert and Bill Maher over jokes made on their shows. Common consensus among those who are angry is that as white men they shouldn’t be making those jokes. Supporters of the shows suggest that perhaps intent should matter. I will go into my opinions of the statements made, including where Suey Park lost me, and about the backlash against hashtag activism.

Tuesday was #equalpayday. But what does the main point of #equalpayday leave out?

Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal was rebuked by the courts who affirmed the stance of Liberal Dan Radio that he has no idea what the first amendment means. I will go a little more into this.

Finally, Louisiana Congressman Vance McAllister was caught on film making out with one of his female staffers (who he fired on #equalpayday). When will the GOP stop being taken seriously as the party of “family values”?

Those topics, tweet of the week, headlines, and more at 8pm Central on Liberal Dan Radio: Talk From The Left, That’s Right.

Louisiana Family Forum: A David Vitter Prostitute

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.

Liberal Dan Radio 1/22/2014: Hookers For Vitter

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.
