Barack Obama Had a Really Terrible YearISIS, Ferguson, the Senate, Ukraine, Ebola, border kids. Really, this was a pretty awful sixth year for the president. Not that he's acting like it.
You can make a compelling case that 2014 was the worst year for President Obama since, well, the year before. And, in fact, the president spent much of this year trying to recover from some body blows he took in the final months of 2013, when, in short order, Congress rebuffed him on Syria and the federal health care exchange imploded.
Cedar Falls, IA became Ground Zero for launching a Presidential drive for gigabit community-owned broadband throughout the U.S. Learn how this 20-year old network took center stage last week as the latest beacon leading cities nationwide on the path to faster, better public-owned broadband.
Broadband is driving Cedar Fall's economic activities. Listeners get a detailed breakdown of the city's progress since upgrading to a gigabit network a year ago from Bob Seymour, Planner III/Economic Development. Curtis Dean, Broadband Services Coordinator for the Iowa Association of Municipal Utilities provides insights to expected developments in the state's broadband future.
President Obama held up Cedar Falls as a great example of the value of public braodband networks in helping to meet America's highspeed Internet needs, and why we need giant service providers to stop blocking communities' ability to become the next gigabit success story. Our guests offer listeners advice on how their communities can overcome the challenges of these statutes.
The state of our Union is . . . glad that speech is over....is it over? It's only been eighteen hours, Obama's probably still on his first breath; Obama's Cloward-Piven success: the tale of the tape; Illegal aliens overrun State of the Union show; but guess who the GOP has coming to give the REAL State of the Union address on February 11th?; and last weekend in San Francisco, leftists turned on leftists; and they're all coming for your omelets.
SOTU: the Obama Strategy (read Gaius here); GOP Congress's assault on reproductive justice; Newsweek calling out "Christians" for trying to make policy based on a seriously faulty reading of their own book. Will non-fundamentalists – religious or not – take them on?

As the stereotypical Italian Mother in the Prego commercial said ....."It's in there!"
Obama gave the speech his Liberal Regressive Smurf base wanted to hear (except for trade) as Elmos balked that Obama had not gotten the message the electorate sent him last November.
I say that Obama did indeed give the speech he needed to give ..... he just buried in rhetoric, partisanship and class warfare. The message he needed to give, got lost.
I will identify that part of the speech tonight .... the part I'm proud of ..... the ONLY part Obama should have given.
We will also revisit Ferguson, Missouri .... briefly.
We will also jump ahead to 2016 because the Elmos are showing signs of making the very mistake that I warned them not to make (like they really listen to me anyway).
All this and more on tonight;'s show ...... I hope you will Jump Right In!
