THE NEW YORK TIMES PLAYED THE RACE CARD ON BUNDY AND THE VERY EXTRA CAUTIOUS REPUPPIES RAN FOR THE HILLS. BUT NOT BEFORE DENOUNCING BUNDY AS A RACIST. O'REILLY THE FENCE SITTER PATTED HIMSELF ON THE BACK FOR FENCING. KRAUTHAMMER RAILED AGAINST BUNDY. A DNC STOOGE PRETENDING TO BE FAIR TIED BUNDY INTO THE TEA PARTY, CHRISTIANS, WHITE MEN AND VETS. HANNITY AND GLEN BECK EXECUTED THIS GUY WITH EXTREME PREDJUDICE. THE ONLY ONE WHO STOOD UP FOR HIM WAS A BLACK MINISTER WHO SAID HE WAS BORN PICKING COTTON AND KNOWS EXACTLY WHAT BUNDY IS SAYING. ONCE AGAIN THE COMMUNISTS WHO TRICKED ALL THE ABOVE INTO BELIEVING RUSSIA LOST THE COLD WAR HAVE PLAYED THEM FOR THE DNC. DON'T FORGET RED CHINA IS OUR FRIEND. NOT RUSSIAS ALLY. HARRY REID STRIKES AGAIN. HE BUFFALOED THE RINOS, SPLIT THE DECK, SCATTERED THE SISSIES AND NOW BUNDY STANDS ALONE READY TO BE LIQUIDATED. COMMUNISTS ARE GREAT DIVERSIONARY CREATORS. THE FOCUS IS GONE FROM FROM KGB CATTLE RUSTLING AND LAND GRANTS TO THE CHI COMS. GESTAPO AGENTS ARMED WITH 4 SNIPER TEAMS. GERMAN SHEPHEARDS THAT WERE LAST USED AT SELMA AND TASER GUNS THAT DREW BLOOD. NOT TO MENTION A HOLDING PEN FOR FREEDOM OF SPEECH HOSTAGES AND THE MURDER OF CATTLE INCLUDING TWO PRIZE BULLS AND MOTHERLESS CALVES. I'M SURPRISED PLANNED CATTLEHOOD WAS NOT THEIR WITH A BOVINE ABORTION CLINIC.

Selma is, triumphantly, known for voting rights. Newtown is, tragically, known for gun violence. Tonight we connect the issues and the towns thanks to Chellette and Darren, our guests on The Middle Ground.
From the North, Darren Wagner will make his second appearance on The Middle Ground, and his first since he launched the Newton Action Alliance. He is a former Deputy Sheriff who has become a leading voice on the issue of gun violence after he and his family were shaken by the Sandy Hook Elementary massacre.
From the South, Chellette Henderson is a retired aerospace executive who has returned to her childhood home just south of Selma, AL after her husband and her mother passed away. Having participated in the famous voting rights marches in Selma 48 years ago, she is getting reacquainted with Alabama after raising a family, making her career, and helping to institute MLK Day, in Mesa, Arizona. We'll get the two of them on the phone to discuss issues such as gun safety, voting rights, marriage equality, and how to overcome cultural division and gridlock in Congress.
We'll also ask Darren and Chellette to comment on each other's work, and give us their advice on how to be an effective and active citizen.
NOTE: We started an hour early and ending the show at 8 pm so our listeners can participate in a strategy call for the "Don't Do Koch" initiative.
Presented by Coffee Party USA, "The Middle Ground" is co-hosted by award-winning filmmaker Eric Byler (center-left perspective) and political author Michael Charney (center-right perspective).
