    Author Carson Buckingham

    in Books

    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!

    in Politics Progressive

    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.

    Carson's Corner with Bob Carson.

    in Politics Progressive

    There has been a lot of speculation on the future of Canada’s Maximum Fighting Championship. Since 2001, the Maximum Fighting Championship has been operating primarily in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. In that time, MFC President Pavelich notes that the organization has had 20 consecutive sold out shows, signed a huge television deal with Mark Cuban’s AXS TV, and has had a total of 79 fighters go from that organization to the UFC- a fact no other organization in the world of MMA can claim. However, since their last show in October of last year, many have wondered whether MFC President Mark Pavelich has walked away from MMA completely.  Also since that time, Pavelich has turned down over 100 interview requests except from one person, Bob Carson.


    Veteran MMA Journalist Bob Carson was the very first journalist to grill Pavelich, as he was a guest on Carson’s Corner Wednesday evening.  On the issue of whether or not the MFC is done as an organization, Pavelich opines, “Since my last show, we renewed our show with AXS TV and the Fight Network, and ya know, it’s funny because I’ve been doing this for almost 15 years, and after the show was over I felt like I didn’t want to do it anymore. Everything seemed boring to me. I’ve got to step away from the sport for a little bit to see first and foremost if the fans miss me, and if I miss it.” Pavelich further states, “I always knew in this business that I was going to go out on my terms. I am not like these other MMA organizations that are borrowing money from banks, and hedge fund companies and things like that, that was never the Maximum Fighting Championship.”


     


    Pavelich also weighed in on the Pat Reid controversy, the greatest MFC memories, and fighters that exceed or fell short of his expectations.

    Carson's Corner with Bob Carson.

    in Politics Progressive

    On this episode of Carson's Corner, we will continue our analysis of the issues raised in Paul Street's new book, "They Rule: The 1% vs Democracy." We will discuss the dominance of the financial sector, and how we went from industrial to finance.


    Yesterday, host Bob Carson wrote this statement for http://electionboycott.weebly.com/


    In 2008, I supported President Obama (although I didn’t vote, and have never voted in an election) under the belief that President Obama was the alternative to the conditions we faced at that time. Shortly after his election, it became apparent that Obama was indeed a more effective evil in advancing the corporate agenda of the ruling class. He famously told Wall Street executives, the very people that melted our economy, “I am here to help.”
    A wise man named Jacques Fresco once said, “Politicians are not elected to change things, they are elected to keep things the same.” Keeping things the same entails a furtherance of the corporate state, which makes life in America unbearable for those not in the ruling class. Since it is obvious you cannot work within the system for change, boycotting the elections is the most effective form of dissent. The very definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again.


    Bob will break this down further.
