On the April 30, 2014 episode of Liberal Dan Radio:
Words of Redneck wisdom makes a triumphant return but this time not from our good old boy from CPAC. I will give you three guesses on who it is.
And then from Rednecks to older businessmen and racism. LA Clippers owner Donald Sterling has also, allegedly, come out making some horrible comments about race. I will go over some of the words made and discuss why this is worse than some people are giving him “credit” for.
Finally, Liberal Dan Radio continues the #RetakeCongress segment by inviting candidate for Congress in the 6th district of Texas David Cozad.
Those issues, headlines, tweet of the week, my Kickstarter campaign, and more at 8pm Central on Liberal Dan Radio: Talk From The Left, That’s Right.
There is a new anti-Landrieu campaign ad. Megyn Kelly discusses it here. (The commercial is aired in the interview).
The first lie that Kelly brings up is the “keep your plan” lie. (Check out a previous Fat Man Rants to see why they are lying about the whole “keep your plan” comment by Obama). I have no need to debate that issue, again, here. I talk about it many different times.
Let us ignore for a second the fact that previous people who the Koch Brothers have trotted out as anti-Obamacare advocates have been proven to be incorrect in their statements on how they are suffering under the Affordable Care Act. Let us just assume for a second that everything he says in this video is true. What he is saying is that as a veteran of the armed forces who served two tours in Iraq, he is unable to get TRICARE or VA benefits. This would mean that he served less than 24 months and was not discharged for injury (according to the VA) . This would also mean that he is not currently on active duty or fall under any of the other categories that would enable him to receive TRICARE. This is just obscene. It is well known how we are failing our troops, especially those who served in combat. This is just another example of us failing our military. If you serve in one combat tour, let alone two, you should absolutely be qualified for the VA once you leave the military and move on to the private sector. There is absolutely no reason why we should be denying our troops these benefits on any sort of technicality. It is just wrong.
Now, as to the implied insult that the GOP is suggesting here about Mary Landrieu and how she is attacking a marine? Well, that is just silliness. If the Marine wanted to be taken seriously about this issue of health insurance and how it may have impacted him in a negative way, he would have used another avenue to spread that message than the Koch Brothers who have already been shown to present false information in their ads about Obamacare. When asked by the press, Schiff (the marine) has not responded to any calls for additional comments by nola.com. The Koch Brothers also wont say if Schiff tried to get a plan over an exchange, if he qualified for a subsidy, or to generally verify the information cited in the ad.
As you can read the response from Senator Landrieu, she does not attack Schiff in any way, shape or form. She just attacks the Kochs (and rightly so). Anyone who believes the ads they put out after they were previously embarrassed should remember the whole “fool me once, shame on you” line. Or perhaps the boy who cried wolf…

I have relaunched the Liberal Dan Radio Kickstarter project for 2014, this time with more Kickstarter goodness. I will discuss it a little bit in more detail.
Later in the show I will be talking to Alex Becker from NextDoor.com. Find out what NextDoor.com can do for your neighborhood.
I will also be commenting on various other current events as time allows.
That, plus headlines, tweet of the week, and more on Liberal Dan Radio: Talk From The Left, That’s Right. Wednesday’s at 8pm central on Blog Talk Radio.

On the April 16, 2014 episode of Liberal Dan radio.
SCIENCE! I went to Tulane University on Monday to see Neil deGrasse Tyson speak about a plethora of different things. He was really great. If you have seen him speak about science before you would know that he is really awesome but in person made it that much better. I will review some of the things that he went over in his presentation and why I believe he could go into a career in politics and be awesome at it. He is not only brilliant, but he also has a love for this country that allowed his genius to grow.
As Dr. Tyson seeks to make our nation smarter, the Food Babe is helping to dumb down our nation. She is responsible for getting Subway to remove the “yoga mat ingredient” from their bread recipie. She is now trying to claim that the Doubletree Hotel has anti-freeze in the free cookies given to guests. I will explain why her tactics are irresponsible.
Finally, I will also talk about poker star Phil Ivey. He is facing potential charges for what a casino calls cheating. But is it really cheating? Does government go too far to protect casinos? I will go into that as well.
Those topics, headlines, tweet of the week and more, Wednesday at 8pm central.
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.
On the April 2, 2014 episode of Liberal Dan Radio:
More discussion on the SCOTUS case about oral contraception and the Affordable Care Act. New information now shows Hobby Lobby is quite hypocritical in its issues is has with oral contraception being offered as a benefit in the health insurance policies it provides in lieu of salary.
I will also be having a conversation with Ronny Richards, candidate for Congress in Ohio’s second district as part of my #RetakeCongress campaign.
Finally, as a last minute addition, I will be talking about today’s Supreme Court ruling on “free speech” and campaign finance law. Just how dumb are the drab five?
All that, tweet of the week, headlines and more on Liberal Dan Radio: Talk From The Left, That’s Right. Wednesdays at 8pm central on BlogTalkRadio.
