In this edition of The Social Spitball Show, Bram Sarkowski leads a discussion on topics discussed in the previous shows or brand new topics.
There will be no featured special guests on this show, but all past guests are invited to call in and participate in the discussion. This is a caller-oriented hour long Follow Up Hour show.
Bram is looking forward to talking with you!
This follow up hour will start out with talk of medicaid expansion efforts in "red states."
Following this informative talk, Bram will welcome co-hosts George and Barbara to talk about the latest events of the North Carolina Democratic Party.
Show host Bram Sarkowski will be joined again by co-hosts George Fisher and Barbara Dantonio as they welcome Chris Hyepock, Democratic candidate for Governor of Nevada, as our featured guest for this episode.
Other newsworthy guests will be joining us as well.
We will discuss a variety of other issues related to candidate filing periods and upcoming primaries in many states across this nation.
Having hosted three programs with the co-founders of a group called PETV: People for the Ethical Treatment of Voters, Bram Sarkowski continues to have a conversation with George, Barbara (of PETV) and any callers that join the conversation.
Being that this is a big Election Year, the conversation will most assuredly center around Voting Participation and issues that will motivate voters to go out to the polls in both the Primary and General Election seasons.
Join Bram and his guests and weigh in with your thoughts!
Primaries, International turmoil and party infighting...OH MY!!!
"Your Man in Amsterdam" Bram Sarkowski will guide you and other listeners through these potential topics and more.
This follow up hour show format doesn't automatically have special guests because the special guest is YOU when you raise your voice.
Call (646) 478-3349 to listen in or to get on the show. Bram is looking forward to hearing from you!
Let's get the conversation going...
In this inaugural Thursday episode of "The Social Spitball Show Follow Up Hour with Bram Sarkowski," Bram Sarkowski will lead a discussion on three topics of great importance to him.
*The repeal of the Racial Justice Act in NC and why it was important
*Voting Rights for Ex-Felons who have served their time
*ALEC-sponsored "Stand Your Ground" laws and the recent verdicts in the trials regarding the murders of Trayvon Martin and Jordan Davis.
There will be no featured special guests on this show, but all past guests are invited to call in and participate in the discussion.
Bram is looking forward to talking with you!
Halloween treat -- Bram Stoker, author of Dracula, perhaps the most acclaimed horror novel ever. Born in Dublin in 1847, Bram Stoker published his masterpiece, Dracula, in 1897. The book was a success, and its popularity has grown for over a century. A classic horror novel, Dracula inspired the creation of adaptations such as the 1931 film Dracula, starring Bela Lugosi. Stoker introduced the vampire character of Count Dracula and tells the story of Dracula's attempt to move from Transylvania to England and the battle between Dracula and a group of men and women led by Professor Abraham Van Helsing. Written in the Victorian era, the novel touches on familiar issues: reason and science vs. religion and superstition, the rise of feminism, race, world domination, and breaking sexual taboos. Stoker did not invent the vampire, but he defined its modern form. Dracula has many supernatural abilities. He has superhuman strength equivalent to 20 men. Like all undead, he is immortal, but he can be killed by traditional vampire methods of wooden stakes, iron and/or steel weapons, wild rose, or holy water. The definitive way to kill him is by decapitating him preceded by impalement through the heart. The Count can defy gravity and has superhuman agility; he can climb upside down vertical surfaces in a reptilian manner. He has powerful hypnotic and telepathic abilities and is able to command animals such as bats and rats. Dracula can manipulate the weather, creating mists to mask his presence. He can take the form of bat, wolf, large dog, or fog. He can vanish and reappear somewhere else. He requires nothing but fresh blood, which rejuvenates him. “The blood is the life!” Dracula has not been out of print since it was published in 1897. After the interview, check out After Hours at Jersey Coastal Live.
Please join host Bram Sarkowski and PETV co-hosts Barbara Dantonio and George Fisher as they discuss the legacy of the Civil Rights movement, the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King's vast contributions to advancing our society and the civil liberties of all and the Voting Rights that are essential to this Democracy.
We encourage you to attend MLK Day and Weekend events to honor his memory and legacy.
On our last show, we hosted a Texas trio of candidates who had great visions for representing the people. We had such a great time, we're heading down to Lone Star state again this Sunday!
*Our first guest is Steve Brown, candidate for Texas Railroad Commission. Steve considers himself a public advocate for the Railroad Commission (RRC). He has 5 pillars for reforming & improving the RRC: establishing an Office of Public Advocacy, Adequate Funding, Staff Training & Development, Environmental Stewardship, as well as Job Creation & Workforce. Tune in around quarter after 7pm Eastern to learn more about these pillars of strong and safe railroad advocacy in Texas: http://www.electstevebrown.com/
*James Cargas is man with Capitol Hill & White House experience, along with progressive ideals and a legal mind, running for Congress in Texas. Mr. Cargas has vast experience in environmental law and advocacy. His voice is quite needed in a state that has a private sector that has made $Billions and has scarred the environment in the process. Catch James' wonderful voice for the environment and other issues about a quarter to 8pm Eastern: http://www.jamescargas.com/
*Our final guest and second Congressional candidate of the evening is running in a very famous Congressional race. Wesley Reed's opponent is in Bill Maher's Final Four in the #FlipADistrict contest. Wesley is already a "friend of the show," having appeared on our show back in April. Wesley is a Marine veteran from a working class military family. As a current FedEx pilot, Wesley has some great insight on terrorism and job creation. Catch this amazing candidate around 8:20pm Eastern: http://www.wesleyreed.com/
I'm excited about this Lone Star crowd. Aren't you? Let's get the conversation going...
It's been awhile since The #SocialSpitballShow visited the Lone Star State, so with the help of Texan Barry Sensa of Facebook (as well as Robin Conrad & Crystal Stephens), we were able to make this a Lone Star Show.
Our first guest from Texas is Dr. David Alameel, who won a March Democratic primary to run against U.S. Senator John Cornyn. The Texas primary was so contested, that there was a need for a primary runoff. That just confirms the great worth of Dr. Alameel as a candidate for U.S. Senate. Alameel is ready to take on Cornyn and fight for the people of Texas who deserve (at least one) sane representative in the U.S. Senate. Listen for Dr. Alameel's conversation with us shortly after the start of the show: http://alameelforsenate.com/
Our second Lone Star candidate is Louie Minor, who is running for Congress from Texas' 31st district. Louie is an Iraq combat veteran, a current Captain in the Army Reserves and a third generation Latino-American. As he says on his website, "Like the rest of the country, I am dissatisfied with congress. Our government, our economy, and our families are hostage to inaction. Elected officials place their personal beliefs and their party above the people they serve, and it’s time for that to change." Catch his conversation around quarter to 8pm Eastern: http://www.louieminor.com/
Our last Texas guest is Kathy King, who is running for Texas Board of Education, District 7. Kathy is running to provide a voice for quality education in Texas. This means factual text books for history and science and increased support for Special Education. Tune in to hear Kathy's fight for good education after 8pm Eastern: http://www.kathyking2014.com/
Let's get this Lone Star conversation going...
Missouri has made the national headlines for very tragic and upsetting reasons within the last week, with the unnecessary shooting (murder) of young man Mike Brown. This is one of the many issues that 3 great Missouri candidates will tackle in this episode.
Arthur Lieber, running for Congress in Missouri's 2nd district, has been an educator in the St. Louis area for over four decades. He helped found the Crossroads School, which is now the Crossroads College Preparatory School in 1974. He was director of the school for 15 years. He founded a non-profit organization called Civitas Associates in 1991, which provides opportunities for students in the area to strengthen their thinking skills in the area of such subjects as international relations, human rights and urban studies. Learn more about Arthur's resume of positive influence just after 7pm Eastern: http://www.lieberforcongress.com/
Dr. Bill Hedge is running for Congress in Missouri's 6th district. Dr. Hedge believes in a few key things on his journey to Congress. Among them is the goal of rebuilding the middle class. As he puts it, "when the middle class wins, we all win." He also is ready to fight for women's equality. This means equal pay for equal work, women controlling the conversation about their bodies and allowing their powerful voices to be heard loud and clear. Learn more about Dr. Hedge's practical and positive approach to governance around 8pm Eastern: https://elect-hedge-to-congress.com/
Our final guest is Susan Cunningham, running for Missouri House, district 119. Susan believes in a living wage and expanding Medicaid to save lives and rural hospitals. Learn more about her campaign around 8:30pm Eastern: http://www.cunningham4staterep.com/
Missouri needs these voices. Let's get the conversation going...
My homeless friend Matt is back to update us on his situation.
Since we last talked to Matt (when he was in New Orleans via Florida), he was arrested for trespassing and locked in the county jail in Pecos County, Texas in Fort Stockton.
Bram & Barbara tried their best to get him out, but before they could, Matt was released on time served.
We'll talk with Matt about his further experiences. We'll find out how he views the world at this point.
Along the way, we'll talk about Homelessness in America: What causes it? What can be done? How close are we all to it?
Let's get the conversation going...
