This Week On The Fallon Forum: Why Do Republicans Begrudge Poor People Food?

fallon forumMonday, Dr. Charles Goldman and I definitively answer once and for all the perplexing age-old question: “Why do Republicans hate food stamps?”

Tuesday, we discuss the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy one year later, and in other climate news, we look at the horrific wildfires raging across Australia. We also further analyze the proposed $81 million referendum for Polk County’s court system.

Wednesday, we get an update on the Immigrant Entrepreneurs Summit from Souvanna Southammavong. We also talk with at-large Des Moines City Council candidate Chris Diebel.

Thursday, we talk with first ward Des Moines City Council candidate Jean Minahan. Then Ed discusses Democrat Bill Knapp’s endorsement of Governor Branstad and ponders the question, “Why is it that Democrats with money are allowed to support non-Democrats whereas I still get the crap kicked out of me ten years later for supporting Ralph Nader?”

Join us live, Monday-Thursday, from 6:00-6:30 pm on the Fallon Forum website. Call-in at (855) 244-0077 and add your voice to the dialogue. Video and audio-only podcasts available after the program.
