Segment 1:
KEOS 89.1 FM College Station.

You are listening to the
Master CraftsMon, a program of debate and then
social activism from the Right. On this program we
will be exploring how to use the Internet as a means
of gathering resources to affect positive social
change in a community.

For I am but a voice from the velvet black calling to you across the
gulf of our mutual incomprehension.
I decided not to get involved in Christmas this year.

*** Individual Taste ***
*** Why is it correct behavior for a minority to enforce its will on the
majority? ***
*** A Minister talked about 88% of the people not objecting to Creches or
minoras ***
*** The same minister told the story of the early debates about Christianity
in the late 1800's and early 1900's. Transformative power of Christianity
Could the debater find 100 people who had been transformed by Atheism?
Could find none. ***
To All My Democrat Family and Friends:

Please accept with no obligation, implied or implicit, my best wishes for an environmentally conscious, socially responsible, low-stress, non-addictive, gender-neutral celebration of the winter solstice holiday, practiced within the most enjoyable traditions of the religious persuasion of your choice, or secular practices of your choice, with respect for the religious/secular persuasion and/or traditions of others, or their choice not to practice religious or secular traditions at all. I also wish you a fiscally successful, personally fulfilling and medically uncomplicated recognition of the onset of the generally accepted calendar year 2008, but not without due respect for the calendars of choice of other cultures whose contributions to society have helped make America great. Not to imply that America is necessarily greater than any other country nor the only America in the Western Hemisphere. Also, this wish is made without regard to the race, creed, color, age, physical ability, religious faith or sexual
preference of the wishee.

To All My Republican Family and Friends:

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

*** When did Christmas become such a big political issue? ***

Do I think Liberals have a case? Is it wrong that 20% of the populus is in
relative poverty? If I could be convinced that this was a chronic condition
where 20% of the populus stays in poverty forever, then that would be a
major problem. Liberals will not accept that 20% of the populus at some point
in their lives are in relative poverty.

*** Expound on Relative vs Absolute Poverty ***
*** Just because I do not want the government to do something, does not mean
that I do not want it done at all. ***
I perceive that the government has gotten too big. I perceive that the various
social agencies need to be carved out of the government and made service clubs
with an endowment.

I cannot figure out how this would be done, but I believe that the government
should do that, because the government cannot effectively do social programs.

*** Either the programs have worked or they have not. How do you measure and
how do you determine what is the truth? If all truth is just an opinion how
can you determine whether a program is achiving the goals that have been set
for it?***
*** EXPOUND ***
What irritates me about all this is that all the aguments have been made. All
the positions have been set in stone. Neither side will budge, because
idiologically both sides are convinced that they are correct.

Have the policies of the Democratic Party achived the goals they have set
themselves? If they have, great. If they have not, should they not get out of
the way and let the Republicans try to solve the problems facing the nation?

***Describe the Statue of Justice: Blindfold, scales and sword.***

Why does it make sense to use the Sword of Justice to force people to do
things without weighing the options? Because you feel you are correct?
Why does that make sense?

*** Conservatives know the cost of everything but the value of nothing. ***

Without weighing the costs, how can you get a just result? Should we spend
$10B to clean up a toxic waste dump or $10B to upgrade a 911 response system?
How many lives are going to be saved doing one or the other? If you say that
each life has an infinite value, then you ask for perfection.

Perfection is unattainable. If you stand on your high horse and demand
perfection, you put yourself in an unassailable position without solving or
even amiliorating the problem. All you do is make yourself feel good.

*** EXPOUND on perfection. Utopian dreams vs Reality. ***

If you ask the question: "What can be done to lessen a social problem instead
of alleviate it?" You come to a situation where positive change can be
implemented. By asking for a cure you encourage nihilism and pessimism.
