Episode 169 – Remembering Our Vets, Straight and Gay

The Tim Corrimal Show
Episode 169 – May 30, 2011

On episode 169 of The Tim Corrimal Show, I am joined by Dave (@D_v_E on Twitter) from “The Corner Tavern” Blog and the “Refudiate This, Sarah” Blog and our guests this week for Memorial Day are Jeff and Lori Wilfahrt, who’s son, Corporal Andrew C. Wilfahrt, was recently and unfortunately killed in Afghanistan.  Jeff shared a new site for the remembrance of their Son at http://www.andrewswall.org/

On today’s show, we start out with introductions and the “All A Tweetie” segment. Then we talk about the awesome work that Jeff and Lori Wilfahrt are doing in Minnesota and nationally on the issues of Gay Rights and Gay Marriage.  Jeff recently testified at both the Minnesota House and Senate hearings regarding the proposed constitutional amendment banning Gay Marriage in that state and then we discuss them both being featured on The Rachel Maddow Show. After a message from our good friends at BubbleGenius.com, we then talk about Michele Bachmann and her ridiculous belief that the Legislative Branch has the right to limit the issues that the Judicial Branch can rule on and Dave gives us an excellent explanation quoting the Constitution and explains why she wrong. We also discuss Sarah Palin invading the “Rolling Thunder” Veterans event in DC this weekend trying to pretend that she was invited and attempting to steal their “Thunder”.  And finally, we close out the show with the “Foxisms of the Week” segment.

Episode 157 – Union Busting, DOMA and Libya, Oh My!

The Tim Corrimal Show
Episode 157 – February 27, 2011

On episode 157 of The Tim Corrimal Show, I am joined by Dave (@D_v_E on Twitter) from The Corner Tavern Blog and the Refudiate This, Sarah blog, Sarah (@s_a_cosgrove on Twitter) from the Mashrabiyya Blog, David (@My1BlueEye on Twitter) from the One Blue Eye Blog and Ian (@iboudreau on Twitter).

On today’s show, we talk about the Justice Department deciding to no longer defend the Defense Of Marriage Act (DOMA) law, and how Fox News has been lying about the union protests in Wisconsin.  We also discuss the reporter posing as billionare, David Koch, calling the Wisconsin Governor, Scott Walker, and the recording of their discussion about the efforts to bust the public employee union and trick the 14 Democratic Senators into returning to the State so they can pass the union busting legislation. And then Sarah fills us in on what’s going on the situation in Libya.
