On this episode of Carson's Corner, Bob discusses Ferguson and the race relations in America. How does this relate to capitalism as a whole? Can we use the events of Ferguson to raise class awareness ? All of this and more from a working class perspective.
Carson Buckingham knew from childhood that she wanted to be a writer and began, at age six, by writing books of her own, hand-drawing covers, and selling them to any family member who would pay (usually a dime) for what she referred to as “classic literature.” When she ran out of relatives, she came to the conclusion that there was no real money to be made in self-publishing, so she studied writing and read voraciously for the next eighteen years, while simultaneously collecting enough rejection slips to re-paper her living room…twice.
When her landlord chucked her out for, in his words, “making the apartment into one hell of a downer,” she redoubled her efforts, and collected four times the rejection slips in half the time, single-handedly causing the first paper shortage in U.S. history.
But she persevered, improved greatly over the years, and here we are.
Carson Buckingham has been/is a professional proofreader, editor, anthologist, newspaper reporter, copywriter, technical writer, novelist, short story writer and comedy writer. She loves reading and gardening; but not at the same time. Though born and raised in Connecticut, she lives in Arizona now—and Connecticut is glad to be rid of her!

The National Draft Ben Carson for President Committee is a political action committee formed to draft Dr. Ben Carson into the race for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination. It was founded in August 2013 by John Philip Sousa IV and Vernon Robinson, and works to raise awareness of Dr. Carson’s qualifications and to engage grassroots conservative activists in clamoring for Dr. Carson to run for president.
With over 20,000 volunteers nationwide, the committee has been able to raise more than $11 million dollars. The committee also has a goal of collecting 1 million petition signatures by January 1, 2015.
Tonight John Philip Sousa IV, the great-grandson of the great march composer, joins us.

On this edition of Carson's Corner, Bob flys solo this week, as he discusses some of the issues facing the working class. First, as Election Boycott Advocate and former campaign manager of Ralph Nader Christopher Driscoll said on this show, there are so many bubbles in the economy that are bound to burst. We'll discuss this, plus, the effects of income inequality are part of the new normal of capitalism; and of course, Bob will discuss why he is an Election Boycott Advocate, as well as some up-coming plans for a new show television show with a member/supporter of the Zeitgeist Movement.
After Dana White failed to deliver on the promised BIG announcement at the UFC's "The Time is Now" press conference event, MMA fans and media alike were quick to pronounce the event a time-wasting failure.
However, during the incident now known as "The Press Conference Fan Q&A Section Accusation of Nondelivery on Promised Audio/Visual Materials Heard Round the World," Dominique "The Fallen Angel" Robinson exploded onto the global scene with his direct callout of the man known as "Built Like a Fighter."
Now, in his most in-depth interview since that fateful event, "The Fallen Angel" sits down with hall-of-fame host Bob Carson for a wild and wide-ranging interview!
Tune in to hear Bob and Dominique discuss all of the following and much more:
Why did Dana White owe him DVDs in the first place? What if another MMA organization offered him a lucrative deal in order to capitalize on his notoriety? What's his real record?
Will he really be fighting Joe Stevenson at a zoo for an audience of celebrities and high society types?
In addition to talking to Domique, Bob will also be joined by his "Goon Squad" associate and infamous "Ultimate Fighter" competitor, James Chaney! Chaney discusses his dark nature as one of MMA's premiere horror movie villains, his impending drop to lightweight and the infamous biting incident on TUF's "LET ME BANG, BRO!" season.
Once again, Bob Carson brings you the most in-depth and detailed interviews in the sport.
