Episode 09 – More Rand than Jesus

Listen

In today’s episode, host Jaye Pool updates listeners on the status of Affordable Care Act (ACA) repeal / Trumpcare efforts in the United States Senate. Will the Senate vote on Obamacare repeal and replacement, or repeal only? Why, in the words of Donald Trump, is health care reform “so complicated?”

Episode 08 – Compromise

Listen

In today’s episode, host Jaye Pool analyzes how the Third Way of the Democratic Party and the Religious Right, aligned with the Republican Party, have led to a fractured, broken political system and democracy in peril. Delving into the histories of both movements that span several decades, Jaye argues that while these movements are different ideologically, both are rooted in a common choice to compromise on core values. Have these choices Democrats and white evangelical Christians made to compromise generations ago led to their logical conclusion in 2017?

YouTube Exclusive – NRA Ad: Their Answer to Philando Castile?

WARNING – VIOLENCE/GRAPHIC CONTENT

YOUTUBE EXCLUSIVE!

Philando Castile was a 32-year old school worker from St. Paul, Minnesota who was killed during a traffic stop after he declared he had a gun on him, one that was legal for him to carry. After the incident, and after the officer who shot Castile was tried and acquitted of wrongdoing, many people called on the National Rifle Association (NRA) to speak out against the killing. They did not make any substantive statements on the incident. Many criticized the group for failing to speak out about a legal gun owner who died because he exercised his Second Amendment right to bear arms.

The NRA promoted an ad a few days ago that many observers believe is a thinly-veiled call for the right to attack the left. But is this ad the NRA’s way of answering the question – Why won’t the NRA speak out regarding the death of Philando Castile?

Episode 07 – Riverside Chats Part 2: Big Grain of Salt

In Part 2 of our two-parter first installment of Riverside Chats, host Jaye Pool is joined by her husband Chuckles as they share with listeners just a little bit of their lively political conversations – as a couple with differing political views. Today’s episode includes a conversation about the usefulness of historical parallels to describe current political conditions. Jaye and Chuckles discuss the politics of fear and the framing of today’s leadership in reference to past events. Do even hyperbolic comparisons have value in political discourse? The Riverside Chats special format is brought to Potstirrer Podcast on occasion to include some diversity of thought to the show and to encourage learning and discussion outside of the “echo chambers” of the right and the left.

The Senate has just released a draft of their version of Trumpcare – and it is no better than the House version. This is an $800 billion cash grab and will leave more people uninsured than BEFORE the ACA (Obamacare). In other words – this is worse than health care was before the ACA was even enacted. Call your senators NOW and tell them to vote NO on the BCRA/AHCA (Trumpcare).
