LightningRod Radio Show 2/24/2012

In the first episode of the LightningRod Radio Show, host Chris Rodriguez talks about the site that hosts the show, BlogTalk Radio, and all the ways to listen to the show either LIVE or On-Demand.  He then went off on certain types of people who are evident in Longmont, CO and probably most cities – the type that on one hand say how much they love their city, then endlessly bitch about and deride it, followed by threats of selling their undervalued homes, and on and on.  Recently it’s been the anti-airport and anti-fracking groups who have been playing this game.  Also mentioned is the continued dictatorial qualities of our current mayor and how he’s basically just checking off the liberal/progressive checklist.
