LP014: The public sounds off to council, and voter ID laws

On Episode 14 of Longmont Politics, we condensed 2 hours of public testimony at the May 22nd Longmont City Council meeting about oil/gas regulations down to about 25 minutes.  “Exceptional benefit”, aka the McCoy Annexation Extortion Scheme, was done away with at this meeting as well.  Longmont Area Dems (@longmontdems) goes on the attack of those they disagree with, and fraudulently pretending to hyperlink to this site – Longmont Politics.  Notice how we actually link to them, unlike them we’re not afraid of the competition, as unhinged as it is in this case. Finally I further expanded on my Times-Call letter about voter ID requirements.

Music played in this show was “Whatever You Say” by Modern Science – courtesy of Music Alley.

FF010: Confederate flags, crack, snakes, gum swallowing, sadistic dentists – and the student loan debate

Tonight on Episode 10 of Friendly Fire, Stephen continued with his new series “Weird and Wacky News” or “Hillbillies in Space” – take your pick.  We had fun with dresses made of Confederate flags, Say NO to crack, say YES to rollerskating,  real “snakes on a plane”, the trials and tribulations of swallowing your gum, withholding sex due to political persuasion, scorned dentists removing ex-boyfriends teeth, and shooting oneself with a dumbbell.

S.S. (Socialist Stephen) makes a pilgrimage to the capitalist mecca/monument of Las Vegas, NV – and gets pranked by Chris on the way home.

Oh, and in the more serious debate part of the show we talked about the recent events surrounding student loans and how Stephen believes the federal government should pay for it all (actually, just loan money for it).

We will be hosting a LIVE event of the Friendly Fire season finale Monday, June 11th at “A Bit of Billiards” in Longmont, Colorado.  On tonight’s show we had a call-in from one of our favorite fans/chatters Alissa and she talked about the karaoke providers and the venue.
