Today’s Show 10-15-18

Today on the show we had two guests. Our first guest was Tom Patton and our second guest was Bruce Nagy.

 

State Representative Tom Patton

State Rep. Tom Patton

Tom Patton is a state representative and he was on the show today to discuss Issue 1 in Ohio and clarify the good and the bad about it, and also he talks about bringing in more younger people into the trades. When speaking about Issue 1, Patton stressed how important it is to help people get drug treatment rather than incarcerating them, especially if they are non-violent, young, and clearly are in need of help. It is much cheaper to the tax payers to have someone receive drug treatment rather than incarcerating them and not even helping fix their addiction. The second topic that Patton discusses is bringing more attention to the trades and apprenticeships. He talks about the benefits and opportunities that come with apprenticeships and how they should be advertised more so students who are uninterested in college or have trades-related skills know there are options for them out there.

BF Nagy

Author BF Nagy

Bruce Nagy is an author on many pieces that talk about clean energy and green technology. One thing that Nagy was talking about was how trades are beginning to go green by using cleaner energy sources. Nagy also talks about the higher acceptance of electric powered vehicles and how there is a higher demand for them. The last thing that he discussed during his time on the show is how Brad Pitt financed the design and rebuilding of storm-resistant and affordable homes in New Orleans after Katrina hit.

Other things that we discussed on the show today included the upcoming clean energy age, the Climate Reality Project, unions needing more people to get involved, and how the economy has fluctuated during President Trump’s first 18 months in office.

Today’s Show 10-12-18


On the show today we had two guests, Jimmy Cullen and Mary Jane Trapp.

Our first guest was Jimmy Cullen and we discussed his writing called “Mean Drunk Justice” and the Kavanaugh case. One major thing that Cullen discussed with us was how Justice Kavanaugh has a problem with telling the truth under oath and how it will affect him on the Supreme Court. Having someone that has trouble keeping their facts straight under oath on the Supreme Court is a little unnerving. He then goes on to talk about the administrations manipulation of the FBI during the Kavanaugh case, and finishes his time on the show talking about President Trump trying to frame the Democrats for everything that goes wrong or against him and seems to be trying to scare voters into voting Republican so that the Democrats do not “take away” our rights.

Our second guest on the show today was Mary Jane Trapp, and she came on the show to talk about different cases with us. She talks about the Cincinnati Enquirer Case, State vs. Vega (2018) , and ONU vs Charles Construction Services. With the State vs. Vega (2018) Case, Trapp explains what would give a police officer probable cause to search your car without a warrant during a traffic stop. With ONU vs. Charles Construction Services, Trapp explains that faulty workmanship cannot be covered in a claim and that before you hire a contractor that you make sure to review everything that is and is not covered. She finishes her time on the show today by giving her two cents on the Kavanaugh case and how she believes that electing him has “eroded confidence in an ‘impartial’ system” and how judges are supposed to be neutral or indifferent to political parties but she fears Kavanaugh will always favor Republicans.

We also discuss Cost of Living Adjustments, Consumer Price Index for the Elderly, the raised prices of stamps are a record nominal increase, and fighting the privatization of the postal service. For more information on the privatization of the postal service visit http://www.apwu.org/issues
