The Show / Re: Less Stephanie, Please
« on: December 10, 2011, 05:38:06 PM »
I've decided to listen to every episode of Free Talk Live a week, except Sunday.
Mr. Edge, consider another host or go back to the guest show format.

Huh. Thought I might be alone on this.

I have nothing personal against Stephanie. But this past Sunday, I looked at the topics list for the podcast, kinda sighed, and decided to just not listen. Eventually I suspect I may just stop checking the Sunday show all together.

You're certainly not alone on this. I usually fast-forward through most of the Sunday shows now because I don't want to hear Stephanie's constant insistence that various things are gender issues, or the phony "I'm sorry(s)" that she throws out every time someone mentions that they have parents (I'm exaggerating), and that because she was a kid; she knows what it's like to be a parent, etc. I still generally download the Sunday show - but I've started replacing my Monday-morning podcast with Marc Stevens & Dan Carlin.

Stephanie really stepped in it the first time (that I noticed) when Nemmy called in about a month or two ago, when Nemmy described her father's attempt to ostracize her, rather than beat her, because she didn't stand for the pledge in school - Stephanie derailed the normally-principled Dale and they both proceeded to talk about what an affront to individuality it was to be ostracized - WHAT?!?!? Don't non-violent people generally recognize ostracism as an acceptable behavioral modification option? At that point it became clear to me that there is absolutely nothing any parent anywhere could ever do for a child that Stephanie wouldn't claim is abusive.

I love free talk live because as a non-religious conservative, I never fit in with anyone and I spent many years wondering why everyone else was so damn crazy, and free talk live presented thoughtful, principled, intelligent people from various walks of life who frequently discussed topics of interest to me from reasonable perspectives - it was amazing & is why I am a consistent podcast listener. Stephanie breaks that paradigm for me, she introduces what feels like thoughtless, emotional grand-standing bereft of principle. She'd be a great occasional caller - but as a talk-show personality, she's really going to have to get in touch with her own gender and parent issues if she doesn't want to sound like a typical pseudo-intellectual hysterical feminist. I'm not calling her any of these things - I said "feels like" and "sounds like." I feel bad for writing so harshly, but...I'm just going to have to live with the fact that I'm a jerk sometimes and Stephanie really pushes my buttons.


I can't quite figure out why Stephanie irritates so many others but not me - I'm thinking it must be my mother.


When I was in my teens, it was black guys that were the most adamant to not have anyone ever call them "boy".  \

Is it different now with calling women "girls"?

She sounds smart to me and I don't get irritated at all by her.  Hell, Ian can get alot more annoying to me.   I mean every problem has ta hammer (no state) and it gets to me sometimes.

Oh don't get me started on Ian. I'm glad Mark has redoubled his efforts in calling Ian out for his horsepoo.

I believe in what Harry Browne advocated: the point of a libertarian running for office is to EDUCATE people, not to WIN. If you judge Ron by that measure, I believe he's been a huge success for our cause.

Of course, one of the biggest things I had to do was get over my 'Ron Paul Worship' and realize he's not going to change much of anything, if he even had the remote possibility of getting elected.

It's just like Ian points out with the courts: they don't care about their rules. They make it up as they go. If Ron did get close to taking office, the government would pull every dirty trick in the book to throw roadblocks and gridlock in front of him. He would be opposed by both sides of the aisle in Congress and essentially ignored. I wouldn't rule out Generals overseas from outright refusing orders to pack up and leave whatever country they were in.

ElGuapo, you really hit the nail on the head. I wish I could articulate my feelings on the matter that well.

(Good choice on Dan Carlin by the way, I'm also a fan)

Iím not suggesting that I know how to reach Scott, but I think Michelle Seven had some success reaching him.

What male couldn't be reached by Michelle Seven?  8)

Sorry for all the typos in my post.

Anyways, someone emailed Mark and Ian claiming they heard Scott the Bigot on another talkshow claiming to be someone who works on Wall Street and when confronted by this from Ian, Scott clams up for a second and tries to avoid the issue for the rest of his call.

My fiance LOVES your podcast. She got me to start downloading it. I've only heard a few episodes but its good stuff man.

He's very entertaining, by I think his recent appearance on Saturday's show (I think it was Saturday) where Ian caught him off guard with the accusation he'd be on another show claiming to work on Wall Street more or less confirms he's a troll.

Mississippi at number 3! Haha, this state is the textbook example of the "good ole boy" system at work.

I like Sam a lot, don't be jerks..............

I'd second that.  Sam may have his shortcomings (don't we all?) but he is a good guy.

I was just trying to be funny. I've never met him personally, I just know of him from Free Talk Live and he seems like a nice guy but he certainly believed in some kooky stuff.

Without the publicity of continuing to escalate confrontations, both if their streams of income slows down to a trickle.
That's a fact, not a theory.
I've volunteered to buy one-way bus tickets for Ademo and a few select others. Their antics are perfect for someplace hopeless like California or Mass. But those same antics work against us in NH.

Wrong, Ademo and Pete bring a lot of good people to NH.

Can you name one?

Will be me eventually. If we are just spouting out our opinions mine is as good as anyones. They repeatedly leave, gather attention then yoyo back to NH. They arent like Sam or Carroll where they do a bit of work, burn out, then bail. I think these guys will get older, settle down more, and the cycle of people will keep coming.

Sam didn't burn out dude. He decided to go live in a Hobbit Hole in Texas because a fancy fortune telling computer told him shit was about to hit the fan. Get your facts straight.

I freely admit I am. In fact, I look up to Larry David's character in Curb Your Enthusiasm as a guide to life.

I also think Frank is a real caller. The whole Mason/Illuminati thing is just him trying to be funny.

If you want to take up donations for a cause, why not take up some money to help Nick get out of his parent's basement.

I own a newer Mini-14 that can be pretty picky about ammo. It tends to jam a lot on .223s but will usually blow through 556 with no problem.

I also got a good chuckle from that as well --I plan on using that line next time I hear someone spout off about the military
