On this episode of Friendly Fire we started out with an astrological reading by Bill from  Apollon Astrology where he did a “mundane” reading of LightningRod Radio Network as a being unto itself.  Anthony from SportsTalk joined us in studio to talk more about salary caps in sports.  We also talked about the sports team who showed solidarity behind Trayvon Martin, which segued into the case itself and gun control.

LP006:Fracking making citizens angry, and State Senator morphs into a flying toaster

On this weeks Longmont Politics, we started with fracking and how some people were unhappy with the 7-0 vote by city council to NOT extend the moratorium.  Recently retired City Manager Gordon Pedrow has become more vocal since retiring and citizens are letting everyone know how they feel about him.  Times-Call letters in response to other letters.  And finally, the bizarre YouTube sensation that claims Colorado State Senator Brandon Shaffer is a flying toaster and recently took on Godzilla in a fight to the death.

FF006:Global Warming, Climate Change Examiner, and Obama’s son might look like Trayvon Martin

On this episode of Friendly Fire we started out and continued our argument about
Global Warming, played an advertisement of Apollon Astrology including a free giveway of an astrologicaly reading.

Climate Change Examiner Tony Hake called in to discuss climate change, he can be found climate.exweather.com. BlogTalk Radio and Skype caused us all kinds of technical issues and some of the call audio dropped out.

It was then on to sports salary caps equaling socialism, then President Obama’s remarks how if he had a son he might look like Trayvon Martin – an argument about Barack Obama ensued. This then turned to gun laws in Florida and Colorado. We closed with “Every Little Thing” by Modern Science.
