Liberal Dan Radio 07/17/2019: Our Racist/Bigot/Xenophobe in Chief

On the July 17, 2019 episode of Liberal Dan Radio

I was planning to discuss the gender wage gap in US Soccer in detail, but so much has happened this week with “Dear Leader” that I have decided to cover my thoughts on that in the opening segment and then go on to discuss the deplorable nature of this Presidency. 

From telling people with brown skin that they should go back to their countries (despite 3 of them being born here) to the GOP circling wagons around him to protect him, we should be able to prove once and for all how the GOP has overstayed their welcome. 

Those topics, headlines, words of redneck wisdom, hypocrite of the week, and more on Liberal Dan Radio: Talk From The Left, That’s Right.

A Hard Day For Patriotism

Remember when the Fourth of July was a day of family and patriotism? People from all backgrounds would get together and cook out on the grill, spend time with family, and perhaps watch a fireworks show on TV or somewhere close to where they lived. It was a day where we would celebrate the idea of what America is supposed to be, even though attempts to stick to those ideals have many times missed the mark.

This July 4th is, to be frank, a joke. Donald J. Trump is taking a day that is supposed to be a celebration of our country and is instead putting on a vanity show to stroke his own ego. His so called “Salute To America” is nothing more than a Soviet Bloc party. He has requested tanks in the streets of Washington D.C. as well as flyovers by several different aircraft. The National Park Service is spending $2.5 million on this event when it already has a backlog of projects that need to be completed. That amount of money is likely far less than the total costs that will be incurred today.

Who is attending this event? There is free access for the public. However, there is also a VIP section in front that will require tickets for entry. Both political appointees of this administration and major Republican donors will be receiving tickets to this event. The Democratic National Committee has confirmed that they have not received tickets to hand out while the Republican National Committee has. Ego stroking aside, this event will serve as a political tool to reward people supporting Trump’s reelection. I hope nobody is still holding their breath for a swamp draining to take place in D.C.

The most hypocritical portion of this is that our founding document states that people have the right to “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness”. While this administration spreads money across the capitol like a bachelor at a strip club, people who have come here simply to live free and pursue happiness are locked up in cages and are being denied basic necessities of life. Desperate families, like Oscar Martinez and Angie Valeria, have died simply trying to get into our country. At least seven children have died in U.S. custody after being detained. These facilities are overcrowded and lack the basic items needed to survive.

What we have today is one giant propaganda tool meant to mask the violations of civil liberties being perpetuated by this administration. A large portion of Americans will applaud Dear Leader as he cozies up with our enemies and seeks to emulate them. Make no mistake. This is not making America great. The salute I share today is for Donald Trump and it consists of only one finger.

Liberal Dan Radio 8-8-2018:

On the August 8, 2018 episode of Liberal Dan Radio:

I make the case against Kamala Harris and why she shouldn’t be the person we flock to for the Democratic Nomination in 2020.

I also called my shot last week when it came to how Conservatives will respond to my argument that they should get over Obama’s “57 states” comment now that Trump has made his little snafu as well. See if I am the Babe Ruth of podcasting.

Liberal Dan Radio 7/25/2018: Music4More and Mapmaker

On the July 25, 2018 Episode of Liberal Dan Radio:

Music 4 More is a 501(c)3 charity organization that launched in Baltimore in 2007. Their primary focus is collecting instrument donations and reintroducing them into struggling school and community music programs. Since their launch, Music 4 More has donated over 600 instruments to schools, after school programs, and community initiatives. I will be discussing the charity with Deidra Stevens and what you can do to help students and veterans (with their Music4Vets program.

In the bottom half of the hour I will be discussing the issue of Gerrymandering with Josh Lafair, one of the developers of the game Mapmaker, a boardgame about gerrymandering inspired by their own home district in Texas. I am excited that the Kickstarter is already funded and I wanted to help promote a game that intends to educate people more about how lines are drawn in our political process and what we need to do to make voting more fair.

The show won’t have many bits this week. I just have too much room for all the good topics.
