In this episode, I begin wondering why the Democrats continue to debate the filibuster and the Voter Protection Act. It was obvious from last week’s events, the attempt to federalize elections is dead. President Joe Biden was so mad about it he let a little bit of truth leak from his lips. He said the laws passed by the states wasn’t about who could vote, but gets to count the vote. Yet, Senate Majority Leader, Chuck Schumer keeps trying to debate the issue. Does he think he will wear down Senators Sinema or Manchin?
Then it occurred to me. They are setting the stage for their impending mid-term losses. They are sowing seeds of doubt over the integrity of the upcoming election cycle. On top of that, Schumer knows he has to play the game, pretending to push the radical Leftist move to keep AOC and the radical wing of his party from trying to primary him. So, while Senator Amy Klobuchar goes back on her own words from 2018 by saying the filibuster is not about forcing compromise, Senator Schumer is engaging in political theater. It’s every bit as scripted as professional wrestling, complete with sub-plots, good guys, bad guys and a predetermined outcome.
As a closing thought, a letter has surfaced from the National Education Association. It seems NEA President Becky Pringle asked social media platforms to “stamp out” the postings of critics over its support for Critical Race Theory and related teaching materials. Think about that for a moment. Educators in our country, once fervent supporters of free-speech, are lining up to embrace a modern version of book-burning. Our politicians are playing political games for show while our educators are indoctrinating our children behind our backs. And, having been caught doing so, rather than defend their ideas, would rather see any contrarian views expelled.

Actor - Writer - Director - Radio - Veteran | I like ‘guy’ things: women, sports, video games, dogs, drinking, football, shooting guns, war movies, action movies, sci-fi movies and playing the hero. I am a red-blooded, American male through-and-through. But, I have another side as well, a deep and entrenched creative side, which started with writing and evolved to include acting and radio. As a result, I have appeared in nearly 100 stage shows and been involved in dozens of motion pictures, including two independent features available on Amazon Prime.
I have also been in broadcast radio for over 20 years. Thus far, I have been honored to receive five GAB Awards from the Georgia Association of Broadcasters: Two for Best On-Air Personality and three for Best Talk Show.
It was only natural with these pursuits, podcasting would eventually be added to my plate. In late 2017, I decided to start a show with my buddy and co-host, Walt Murray, called, The Wilder Ride. We examine the films of Gene Wilder in the movies by minutes format. This has opened the door to meeting so many new and amazing podcasters from around the world and led to some amazing friendships! As Shakespeare puts it, “I am amazed and know not what to say!” Afterwards, my wife and I started a show called, 'The Marriage Fit Podcast" where we talk about our lives as a blended family. Our tag line is it's a show about trying to make things fit, staying fit, and not throwing a fit.
Of all the roles I play, though, I want to point out that there are two I consider more important than any I have ever played (or will ever play) and that is being a DAD and HUSBAND. I have four girls, ages, 26, 24, 23, and 21 and there is nothing I won't do for them. And, none of life's ambitions would be possible without the strength and support of my best friend in the entire world, my wife, Susan. Regardless of anything else, nothing will ever outshine them.
