My First Protest [IS]

April 19, 2015

My first act of civil disobedience took place when I was five years old…
And then again at age 8.
By 13, I was already up on a soapbox.
What’s your history of activism?

What Do You Want from your State Representative? [IS]

April 16, 2015

Do you know who your state representative is? It’s ok if you don’t, most people are the same way. As I currently run my campaign for state delegate, I ask callers and the audience to think about what state and local issues affect them most.

In the largest free focus group I’ve ever assembled 😉 I want to know what would get you to the polls in June.
One caller from Washington State called in stating that he would like to see changes made to the post office. Another caller from New York said that he wanted to see the distribution of medical marijuana in the state clarified.

What about you?

Free the Children! [IS]

April 15, 2015

I think many of today’s parents are too overprotective. Yes there are child molesters out there, and we as a society have to do our best to protect children. (That’s why I’ve written legislation to protect children in foster care and boot camps. And I’ve also written laws to protect victims of domestic violence.)
But we also need to let children feel free enough to go outside and play, to explore the creek and try to catch that frog, even it means coming home crying with a skinned knee.  In my opinion, it builds character to give our kids a wee bit more freedom and let them learn the lessons of life. I rode my bicycle around my neighborhood when I was 10 years old.  And one time, I took a good tumble.  It hurt!  And the next time, I didn’t ride quite so fast down the hill.
And I really don’t think police should be scooping up our children and holding them for five hours without calling their parents.  How about walking the kids home instead? Not all parents are good parents, and molestations unfortunately are more likely to happen to children from people they know than complete strangers.  But I don’t think allowing your children to play in the park on a sunny day two blocks from home should be a case of criminal neglect.

Should Judges Be Elected? Should Children Be Allowed to Go Outside and Play? [ISLM]

April 14, 2015
Where do judges have an incentive to be racist and homophobic? In Alabama. Where they’re elected.  Listen as Billy Corriher and I explain why this is the case.  Billy is the Director of Research for Legal Progress at American Progress, where his work focuses on state courts and the influence of political contributions on judges.

In hour 2 I’m joined by good friend Leslie Marshall as we discuss whether parents should be allowed to let their children play outside alone.  Our disagreement on the issue led to an impassioned debate that callers got in on as well.  The conversation was spurred by the story of a Maryland couple and their 10 and 6 year old children. For a second time, the kids were taken into custody by Police and CPS after the parents let their children take a walk by themselves.  Here is a link to the full story:
