Here is the REDUX breakdown of the Aftermath Edition of the David Dorer Show.
HotSpot Links: Guest Speaker– Road Rage Shooting in Kennesaw, Georgia; Panel Topics: Shutdown; Bullying; Welfare Drug Testing; and Blogger Fodder.
First, our special guest Tassie Renee discussed her co-worker’s arrest for shooting a woman in the head over a road rage incident in Kennesaw, Georgia. Tassie explains that “Sparkles” was a co-worker with a violent past, but doesn’t feel the Sandra Rose article is overtly racist, and rather, says it calls a “bone a bone.” I tend to disagree with her and find the article to be very sweeping and race-baiting in its analysis of the tragic Kennesaw, Georgia incident.

Panel Topic #1: The Aftermath of the Resolution of the Government Shutdown
T-Bone, Anderson Lipscomb, and Nixrilla then joined the show to discuss the aftermath of the government shutdown over ObamaCare from October 1st, 2013 and the debt ceiling concerns subsequent thereto, which were resolved last week.
Mr. Lipscomb suggested that the long-term effect of the failure of the government to avoid the shutdown is that the GOP will not fair well in the 2014 election cycle. Criticisms of ObamaCare were discussed, as well as praises, but Nixrilla made a great point – the ACA is essentially a Republican bill from 1993.

Panel Topic #2: The Aftermath of Tweens Bullying.
the aftermath of tweens bullying that lead to the death of a Florida girl showed all of our respective “old man” stylings in child-rearing, but we also interwove the generalized condemnation of the parents of bullies that push young girls to the brink of suicide with some legal analysis of the heartbreaking issues.
T-Bone enlightened us on the elements of a criminal act and the likely failure of the Polk County Sheriff’s attempt to charge the parents with a crime.
Whether or not the parents are to blame aside, the “puffed chested” mentality that the insulation of the internet creates for bullies was questioned by all, and a consensus was reached that tweens are far too young to use social networking systems, and all that these systems do is create a willingness to vocalize otherwise suppressed thoughts of aggression and anger.

We were only able to really touch the surface of the ever-developing issue of the purported successes in the aftermath of Utah’s implementation of drug-testing for welfare recipients. Several States have moved for such legislation, with little reported financial savings.
I think Anderson Lipscomb misunderstood the assignment but he did indicate he was going to follow the polling data for the coming weeks, which is what he always does.
Nixrilla discussed the finding of a 1.8 Million Year Old Human Skull that calls into question once again the issues of evolution. Mr. Nixrilla posed a question: show me how this isn’t proof that we change over time.
I went straight for Football and the fantastic news that we can now buy stock in Football players, specifically, Arian Foster. [back to top]
