    On this edition of Lunch with Louden, host Jeanene Louden (Treasurer) and cohost Debilyn Molineaux (President) will be reporting on the retreat that was held in Boulder Colorado last weekend (September 19-21). We will be sharing upcoming projects and hope you will call in with your thoughts, reactions, and ideas.


    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. They also cover the happenings within Coffee Party USA.

    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!

    TIM DANAHEY SHOW 


    Jeanene Loudon of the Coffee Party and I share a lively discussion about news you may have missed. The stories are important but we have fun exchanging our thoughts. Today’s stories include: Hobby Lobby, buying a politician in Utah, another Elizabeth Warren-ish candidate for the Senate in South Dakota, t-shirts making fun of the NSA and Homeland Security are now officially legal, praise for the National Rifle Association, and much more. Sit back and enjoy the stories.

    Accidental Activist Charles Wheelan, Centrist Project, Lunch w Louden 8-14-14

    in Politics

    Where do people turn when common sense solutions can’t be seen on the political horizon? Our guest today has a very serious suggestion.


    As of April this year, Charlie Wheelan became an accidental activist when he realized that the concepts he taught and wrote about needed to move from thoughts and words to deeds. He added The Centrist Manifesto to his list of best sellers, and started the Centrist Project which is principled in fiscal responsibility, environmental responsibility, good governance, social tolerance, economic opportunity AND solving problems.  


    His plan is simple.  


    1.  Create a home for moderate voters.  


    2.  Elect five independent, centrist minded Senators.  


    Today we’ll talk with Charlie Wheelan about his activism, his books and maybe even a little economics.  After all, he is an economics professor and has written Naked Economics, Undressing the Dismal Science and Naked Statistics: Stripping the Dread from Data among others.  What’s up with the “naked”?  We’ll ask him on today’s Lunch with Louden.  Won’t you join us?

    GMOs, Voters, Money and Facts: Lunch w Louden 11/13/14

    in Politics

    Kate Wildrick and Manju Bassell will join host Jeanene Louden as we discuss GMOs, Voters, Money and Facts: Lunch with Louden 11/13/14. (Bios for our guests and many related articles can be found at the Lunch with Louden Facebook page.)

    The Oregon Mandatory Labeling of GMOs Initiative, Measure 92, was on the November 4th ballot as an initiated state statute, where it was narrowly defeated (at least "called"). The measure would have mandated the labeling of certain foodstuffs that were produced with or contained genetically modified organisms. 

    This ballot measure became the poster child for everything that has become a challenge for the informed voter.

    Voter Participation - With just under 4M residents in the state, 2.2M are registered voters. Even with the healthy voting rate of 69.5%, over 630K ballots were not cast, or at least not counted. Wednesday morning The results of this too-close-to-call race were NO 696,293 (50.5%), and YES 683,276 (49.5%). The 13K+ spread was down to just over 6K by mid morning. That means if 1% of the non-voters had voted, they could have changed the outcome.

    Money - The financial investment on this issue alone was record breaking. NO supporters spent just over $20M and YES supporters spent just under $9M. This pencils out to over $20 per vote. Most of the money for both sides came from out of state. Big money was well represented. 

    Information - "Information" flew fast and furious. Oregon felt like a battleground state (not normal for us) with ads that answered ads that answered ads and too many non-recyclable "post cards": the nature of GMOs, the costs of labeling, the need for "more law" had a ping pong tournament quality. 

    What was an informed voter to do? What shall we do in the future?

    How do We Heal the Heart of America? Lunch with Louden - 12/04.2014

    in Politics

    Breaking news has trumped our pre-planned program again!


    Let's talk about healing the heart of this republic's democracy with a little different focus: the grand jury decision to not indite an NYPD officer for the death of Eric Garner is on everyone's mind. The Lunch with Louden Facebook page has several perspectives posted.


    Our challenge today is not to be so right about something that, by definition, those who do not see things the same way are wrong. It is time to set aside our fear, our pain, and our anger so that we can un-conceal the problems that can only be solved together. 


    Join host Jeanene Louden and guest Christina Arechiga in this important conversation.
