SORT BY Relevancy
So I did another debate, this time on morality. Is morality objective or subjective? I wasn't too impressed with how the debate went down, mostly because I didn't get to do all the talking. If I HAD done most of the talking, this is what I would have said.
Plus your calls. The awesomeness returns tonight
BACKROOM POLITICS is a weekly political roundtable of former politicos and Washington insiders who believe that political statesmanship and civility trumps the strict party line.
Guests on the show include some of the country's top political leaders and thinkers.
For the REAL INSIDE THE BELTWAY take on politics as they affect you....listen every week to BACKROOM POLITICS!
How long is too long -- or not long enough -- when it comes to a soap character mourning their beloved partner, ala GENERAL HOSPITAL's Patrick and Sam? How important is it for a character's morality to either track or, at the very least, make sense (ala Brady finding God on DAYS OF OUR LIVES)? And how do you move a great character past a horrific mistake made by a writing regime (ala THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS' Adam kidnapping Sharon's baby or DAYS' Sami shooting EJ in the head?) This will be our kicking off point tonight as host Richard M. Simms, executive editor of Soaps In Depth magazine, takes your calls on these and other topics. Rememer, as always, where the conversation goes is up to you! Got something you want to contribute or an entirely different topic you'd like to discuss? Call in!
Tonight's show Joel Heller and I will discuss a number of issues. We will talk who should be the city council VP, also who is now for sure out of the Duluth Mayor's race. Two big names are off the list. Also we may talk a bit about the ferguson issue and race in America. You can call and take as always, at 1-516-387-1778/.
Prgram note we will have a show next Tuesday with Duluth City Councilor Zack Fillpovich.
America the Beautiful! White men have lost their place at the top of the hill. It's called social order. They think they lost it when slavery was abolished in 1863. That is not when they lost it. They actually begin to lose their place in the social order, when they waiting 18 months before notifying slaves in the southern states, namely Texas and Louisiana that salvery had been ended by order of the Federal government. As time progressed, white men did less and less, or should I say more and more to try to keep blacks as slaves. Instead of abiding by the new laws, they chose to create new laws to keep their desires legal. The Black Code Laws became part of American policing. The KKK carried out the Black Code Laws. The Freedmans Bureau established to assist slaves in transitioning into citizenship became nothing more than a sham. Peace was not to come between the races based on the pride of poorer white men. Politics was in complete control of legislating what would and could happen to blacks. Police were allowed to create as you go laws and administer judgement as they saw it should be. Prosperity was able to continue based on the desires of those with property ownership. Poverty began to spread even more as a tool for the wealthy to maintain ownership of former slaves. People began to segregate even more than had been during slavery. Power was once again seen in the wealth of the white men. Is there anything different today than in 1863 when slavery was abolished in America. If you have to wait for the approval of politicians, courts, and merchants to have social justics, judicial justice, and economic justice, than not much has change. The change must therefore come by way of we the people. We the working class people of American
