Good morning, friends, and welcome to the Tuesday edition of Kentucky Sports Radio, which is coming to you live from day two of the Republican National Convention in Cleveland.

What will day two hold? Tune in to find out.

Join in on the fun by calling (502) 571-1080.

    I’m with Drew – I have become so alienated by all the BS in politics that I am almost completely apathetic about this election. Wish Joe Walsh was running for office again!

    Yesterdays show was the best podcast you’ve ever done. Keep up the coverage in the most ridiculous manner possible.

    Forget Baio, I need to know what Ryan said to The New Yorker.

    Many years ago Letterman had a Don Kind Chia Pet on his show. I have wanted one ever since.

    There were a few guys leading the Anti-Trump protests in the streets that were really exaggerating the motions. That was entertaining to watch for sure.

    I can’t believe Marlana would sing at the RNC when their presidential candidate openly mocked a disabled person.

      And not to mention the Republican party platform of eliminating social safety nets for the less fortunate and blocking health care. It’s a shame actually

      Heard on the radio this morning that Bevin is backing off the elimination of KYnect, since there are so many people who would have nothing else if it was dismantled. It kind of goes back to a gripe I have with a lot of people running for public office for both parties – they are quick to criticize programs that were put in place by political opponents, but they can’t tell us what they would do to “fix” it in concrete terms – only that they will “fix” it and everything will be “great”.

      When Obamacare went into effect, I lost my health insurance at work. I’m now paying more money for less coverage for myself and more coverage for others. I’m all for helping others, but there are way too many that cheat the system and ruin it for the rest.

      Modern politics has become let’s criticize the opposition in order to get elected. Very few have any actual ideas anymore. Politicians all just want to scream at each other and point fingers while the country suffers. We really need to get out of the two party system. I read a really good article the other day that discussed how most industries have been taken over by a few major corporations who continuously cannibalize smaller companies. The result is a lack of actual competition due to monopolies in industries, which leads to poorer and poorer customer service combined with a lack of innovation. You can see this in the political system as well.

    • Obamacare is about control. If not, he would have designed something to get those without insurance covered rather than forcing us all into the same boat.

      As for Trump’s mocking the disabled man, I can’t defend him on that. Cruz was my guy anyway, but I am voting Trump even though it will be with some trepidation. All I can say is NEVER…EVER…Hillary!!! She should be in jail.

      Okay, got a couple things off my chest and I’m done.

      Now for something we all agree on (except for whichever UL trolls are lurking around the Show Thread):

      GO CATS!!!!!!!!!

    • I agree with a lot of thhat J-Dub. Most politicians in both parties are about protecting their perks and power, not working for us.

      J-Dub, you are preaching to the choir. The American Two-Party system is a complete farce. If you are running as an independent, you have no way of getting any shot at participating in a debate to put forth your ideas because the system is totally rigged.

      CG, I think the basic precepts of ObamaCare were well intentioned – it just needed to be implemented better. That being said, I don’t really recall seeing anyone propose anything that sounds like a better solution to the problem, other than doing it through “open market competition”, which to me just says take all rules and controls away and let the insurance companies, pharma companies, and healthcare providers have their way with us. I can speak from the viewpoint of someone who is familiar to the stigma of a pre-existing condition, since I am married to a cancer survivor. Even though she is 13 years out with no sign of recurrence (praise the Lord), the insurance companies will still use that as an excuse to raise our rates.

      I also work for a company that recently lost our Medicare business due to the new Competitive Bidding process, which was designed to lower Medicare costs. These changes are threatening to put smaller companies out of business in favor of big national conglomerates, who give patients the worst, cheapest equipment and well documented poor service. And this process started way before ObamaCare. No easy answers.

    Why would the KSR guys get thrown out? It’s not like they are disrupting the event or openly mocking the participants. The fact that ordinary Americans can attend the convention is part of what this country was founded on.

    • Maybe not disrupting but they just perpetuated the stereotype of all conservatives being racist with their “Lack of ethnicity” comments. Sorry but I couldn’t let one go.

      Now be fair: Not all conservatives are racist. Not all of them, surely. If it’s a stereotype, it’s because there is some basis for the characterization that does not apply to everyone. So no, all conservatives are not racist. Let’s be perfectly clear about that. I’m sure I could find one who isn’t. And you probably could, too.

      Okay? Glad that’s settled. Trump does openly court bigots by voicing some of their concerns. But that’s another issue, one that’s closely related to whether he and other conservatives are racist.

    • Thanks for the placebo! Glad to know I must be the only one! I’m glad not all Democrats are considered racist since you had a Grand Wizard as one of the heroes of your party for about 50 years! (Robert Byrd)

      Okay, now I’m REALLY done, starting NOW!

      Seriously (if anyone is reading this), look, I’m a Christian, and Christ taught us to treat others the way we want to be treated, no matter who it is. Am I perfect and do I always do that? Certainly not, but I try, and I try to do better when I fail. Thanks.


  10. Oops, that’s the 2nd time I accidentally posted with my alter-ego user name at number iv!

    Megan, I hope you take what I said at #iv in the spirit in which it was intended. I admit I let you get under my skin a bit and I try not to do that. Again, I don’t claim to be perfect, because there was only 1 who walked the earth who was perfect.

    God bless.
