    WHY A MARCH AGAINST MONSANTO: LUNCH WITH LOUDEN 5/14/15

    in Politics

    Why a March Against Monsanto: Lunch with Louden 5/14/15


    Monsanto is the poster child for INDUSTRIAL agriculture. Not alone in this mind set, Monsanto has shown us a corporate will to pursue profits on the world stage. Some say this is the future of food production, necessary to feed a hungry planet. Others say this is the end of our ability to produce our own food at home and around the world, the more sustainable of the two options. 


    I don’t have to go far to witness the controversy over Factory Farms and Industrial Ranchers. I have a ballot on my desk today that asks the question, “Should voters enact an ordinance prohibiting cultivation of genetically engineered organisms and creating rights relating to local food production?”


    This is a big enough issue to merit the national call for the March Against Monsanto on May 23rd. Will you participate? 


    Weigh in. This is America's conversation.

    "Open Discussion: Riots, Race, and Reality" on "Lunch with Louden"

    in Politics

    "Open Discussion: Riots, Race, and Reality". Recent events in Baltimore and elsewhere have brought racism to the front of our dialogue again...but what are we failing to address when we frame the issue as one of race? How do we talk about those other issues without appearing to ignore racism? How does focusing on racism allow many people to ignore the other issues by treating the whole thing as "someone else's problem?" What's your perspective on all this? Guest Host John Henry will be taking YOUR calls TODAY at (646) 929-2495, 3pm Eastern, 12 Pacific, on Lunch with Louden on Coffee Party Radio!"

    Freedom From YOUR Religion: LUNCH with LOUDEN 4/2/2015

    in Politics

    Why would religious freedom NEED to become breaking news? There is a powerful public and civic response to a rash of so called religious-freedom-laws. And, the fact that this wave of legislation has all the trappings of an organized movement has people asking who is behind it all and what purpose these laws serve. 


    What problem do these laws address? What problems do these laws create? Is there a "man behind the curtain" or is this a change whose time has come?


    Guest Bob Woodburn and LUNCH with LOUDEN will offer some findings, some opinions, and the opportunity for you to weigh in on your support for or concerns about the trending conversation about religious freedom in this republic's democracy.

    Opportunity for the People? SJRes 19: Lunch with Louden 9/11/14

    in Politics

    What kind of opportunity is today's anticipated Senate vote on a constitutional amendment to regain the right to legislate money in politics?


    It feels like some bit of irony that on this anniversary of tragedy this concept will be publicly judged. Some say it is just another photo op, sound bite fest, waste of time (Congress as usual these days). Some, like me, consider it a chance for the will of The People to show its face in the halls of Congress.


    What do you say?

    Democracy for the Next Generation: Lunch with Louden 10/30/14

    in Politics

    Earlier this month Jeanene Louden and Debilyn Molineaux attended a three day conference in Washington DC entitled “Democracy for the Next Generation” sponsored by NCDD (the National Coalition for Dialogue and Deliberation).


    The National Coalition for Dialogue and Deliberation (NCDD) is a network of more than 2,100 innovators who bring people together across divides to discuss, decide, and take action together effectively on today’s toughest issues.  NCDD serves as a gathering place, a resource center, a news source, and a facilitative leader for this vital community of practice.


    We saw how ripe the country was and continues to be for the mission of Coffee Party USA.  As we progress on our mission to “Building, nurturing and connecting communities to reclaim our government for the people,” participating in events like NCDD conference and others helps in two ways.  First, we gathered with the larger body of people working toward similar goals and, second, represented Coffee Party in the community of connectors.


    On today’s show, guest Sandy Heierbacher, Director at National Coalition for Dialogue and Deliberation, Jeanene and Debilyn will share their experience and how it will play out in the day to day “life” of Coffee Party USA and maybe you!
