    in Politics

    BREAKING 


    Just before airtime, Lunch with Louden connected with Dan Johnson, PANDAA Founder and citizen journalist with time on the ground in Fergusen. He, Bobby Rodrigo, and host Jeanene Louden discussed the drama (information and misinformation) as well as the social/cultural issues surrounding the pending grand jury decision regarding the legal fate of Darren Wilson, the officer that shot Michael Brown. Mr. Johnson's comments were insightful and informative.


    Articles referenced in our conversation are now posted on the Lunch With Louden Facebook page.


    If you tuned in to hear the advertised topic, "Where Do We Go From Here" fear not! The episode will be available to stream Thursday, November 27th (yes, Thanksgiving).


    LUNCH with LOUDEN


    Jeanene Louden and co-host Debilyn Molineaux talk about current events and look for opportunities to bridge political divides, expose corruption and share information not covered in mainstream media.

    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!
