SORT BY Relevancy
November 4 was election day. Although there were some decent candidates, we have elected in some idiots. Who's to Blame?
Can we blame the apathetic voter? What about non voters who are doing it to protest the system?
I love Blaming the Kochs. Can we blame them and SuperPACs like them?
What about the candidates? Who else is tired of lackluster democrats or batshit far right republicans?
Issue: The United States does not need the Keystone XL pipeline. Who's to Blame?
This pipeline is the bain of our existence. It infected our politics during this month's elections and some people fell for it. There are a number of reasons the pipeline should not be approved. Frankly, I don't know why we are still discussing it. Join me as I do a little pipeline bashing.
Do you think this pipeline should be approved? Why?
Do you hate the pipeline as much as me? I get it if you do.
Issue: I am not certain America is prepared for any wide scale Ebola outbreak. Who's to Blame?
Ebola has touched down in the United States. Thomas Duncan, the first person to be diagnosed with Ebola in the United States died last week. This week a nurse, who treated Duncan, has tested positve for Ebola. It seems like the people who treat those with Ebola, keep coming up with Ebola.
Are the individuals who get Ebola while treating patients not being careful?
Is there a sound procedure for handling Ebola patients?
Is the government to Blame for not requiring better Ebola training of medical professionals?
Is there something I am missing?
Issue: Many of you do not know this about me, but last week I went to the emergency room. I am lucky to be covered. Who's to Blame?
Listen in and I will tell you why. Since last week, I have actually been taking advantage of my health insurance that gives me privilege in the medical word. I will tell you all about my experiences among the insured and some observations I made. I will also take your calls about being insured or uninsued.
Issue: The NFL promotes violence, Who's to Blame?
Over the past two weeks it has become glaringly apparent that the NFL is a violent entity with violent men. In a week following the press nightmares in connection with Ray Rice and Adrian Peterson the NFL is fighting off a violent image. But who's to Blame?
Is it the Game? The game is inherently violent some say.
Is it the jock culture, with steroids, strength, no girls or lots of girls?
Is it the absence of women? Is it time to include more ladies in the NFL?
Issue: ISIS is out of control! Who's to Blame?
The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) is out of control and it seems like they are gaining more power in communities Southwest Asia. They are recruiting Americans, Egyptians, Syrians, British and anyone else who supports thier message to join them in chopping heads. But why do they grow stronger?
Is it the religious message ISIS spreads?
Perhaps some find the political power they have come to possess attractive?
Could America be to Blame for intervention/non-intervention?
Issue: Black America has a police prejudice. Who's to Blame?
When black people see the police, they usually have negative feelings. Some black people want to run and some are compelled to do something that alerts the authorities to the fact that they are law abiding. Many blacks are afraid and think the police will harm them. And lately, like in the case of Michael Brown instead of protecting and serving the police have been shooting and killing, unarmed black men.
Does every American have this same prejudice? Are black people just overly sensitive to police brutality or are these negative feelings justified? Are black people just more criminal than the average american?
Issue: Church > State. Who's to Blame?
In Houston there is a heated debate over restrooms. In our progressive world some cities like to accommodate the minority. HERO is an ordinance that accommodates transgender individuals bathroom choices that passed a few months ago in Houston. Recently, churches are being accused of encouraging the congregation to go out and get signatures to repeal the ordinance. The City through pro bono attorneys have subpoenaed the suspect churches' sermons; after uproar had to change the language from sermons to speeches. Now the repeal is tied up in litigation until the new year. Churches usually go unchecked when they preach politics in the pulpit. Why?
Are people afraid to challenge churches?
Churches so protected when it comes to free speech. Does that make it difficult to catch them?
Is it because we are really a Christian nation?
Issue: People are RECOVERING from the Ebola virus in the United States?? Who's to Blame?
Were you a little afraid when you heard that America had contracted two Ebola patients? Did you picture Outbreak or the Walking Dead?
Did you know there was a potential cure? I bet no one did, until two Westerners got it. Mabye it's just me.
I will be discussing facts about the Ebola virus, the Americans who contracted it and the possible cure on Who's to Blame.
Issue: Corporations, job creators and even some workers do not respect our labor. Who's to Blame?
Though both corporate productivity and corporate profits climb, workers' wages remain stagnant. CEO's continue to see big payouts, even during economic downturn. Corporations are being accused of wage theft. America can't even get our legislators to respect our labor through increasing the minimum wage.
However, without the productivity of the worker you don't have profits. Why don't workers get paid more for their productivity? Laborers, they get no respect.
Is the government to Blame for not raising the minimum wage?
Would a $2.00 wage increase kill business and force them into layoffs?
Do you feel that a worker's productivity is not always worth a certain wage?
Do workers even know what their labor is worth?
Issue: Bill Cosby is beloved no more. Who's to Blame?
Blame: Bill Cosby has a whole new wave of critics, and he's not even performing. Is it because in 2004 he was accused of raping 13 women? Or because comedian Hannibal Buress has brought attention to an old issue? Or is is because the media has jumbed on the bandwangon, interviewing the accusers and profiting off the stories?
Are you still a Cosby fan?
