Ryan Burns of the Lost Coast Outpost will join me to discuss the cast and characters of the Presidential race in the wake of two Republican campaign debates and as the first Democratic Party debate approaches.  We’ll talk about each of the candidates and their policy positions – to the extent that they can be ascertained.  If you’re someone who views the race as “politics as usual” and don’t like “horserace” play-by-play analysis – this might not be the show for you, though we do intend to approach the subject from a vantage point which differs from most press coverage and analysis.

7:00 p.m. this Thursday on KHSU’s Thursday Night Talk.

I really don’t care which Republican gets the nomination, but Fiorina is being credited by some for “winning” the debate CarlyWednesday night.  But she lied through her teeth in slandering Planned Parenthood.

So why is the mainstream press covering up for her?

This is really horrible.  Just let them in.  Deal with the problems as best we can, accept that there will be huge problems, but let them in.

Bob Froehlich and I will discuss/debate the value of faith as a means to truth and understanding as opposed to reason, and whether they are mutually exclusive.  Listeners will be encouraged to call in to address the following question:   “What specific things do you currently have faith in, and what evidence would it take to change that faith, or is your faith completely unshakable?”

Thursday evening at 7:00 p.m. on KMUD.



Absolutely.  But I think there would be a week or two of a honeymoon.

This writer thinks he would be on our s— list immediately.

Sanders himself has warned about the limitations of his power even if he wins.

THURSDAY 9/10 AT 8 PM: Local Constituents in Eureka to Hold Vigil For Peace and Diplomacy in Support of Iran Deal
VigilsEUREKA, CA — ​On Thursday, September 10, local constituents will hold a candlelight vigil in support of peace and diplomacy as Congress prepares to vote on the historic nuclear agreement with Iran. The vigil is one of many that will take place nationwide. The vigils build on the grassroots activism over the past six weeks, including a national day of action with more than 200 events nationwide outside representatives’ and senators’ offices.
Over the August congressional recess, thousands of pro­diplomacy activists turned out at hundreds of town hall meetings, rallies, demonstrations, and other events to make visible their support for the deal.
WHAT: ​Humboldt Bay ​Vigil for Peace and Diplomacy
WHERE:​Boardwalk entrance at the foot of F Street, Eureka
WHEN:​Thursday, September 10, 2015, 8 PM
On Thursday, we will join with others across the country to gather and light candles in support of giving peace and diplomacy a chance,” said Mitch Trachtenberg, one of the vigil’s hosts. “It’s crucial that Americans tell Congress we must stand for diplomacy and peace and not another unnecessary war.” Attendees will also be thanking 2nd District Representative Huffman and California Senators Boxer and Feinstein for courageously supporting diplomacy over war.
