Bloggin' on WGPA 1100 AM With Young Republican Julian Stolz

Photobucket - Video and Image HostingI'll be bloggin' on WGPA 1100 AM today between 8 and 10 AM. During the first hour, I'll be joined by a fellow blogger. LVDem? MadBatter? GreendogDem? NakedLehighCountyBlogger? Nah. They give some song and dance about how "important" it is they preserve their anonymity. The truth? They fear my searing logic.

Chris "Blue Collar" Casey, founder of TrueDems, is an exception. He's no creampuff. He wants to come on the air, dressed like a leprechaun in spandex, and do some goofy step dancing. I'm sorry but Riverdance is the best proof yet that we Irish are idiots. It might interfere with all the chickendancers at WGPA. Also, I just can't seem to get through to Chris that no one will actually see his step dancing on the radio. They'll just hear some clicking noise and the sound of splitting pants.

So my guest is Republican Julian Stolz, a fellow blogger who publishes Right from Lehigh County. Julian represents the future of Lehigh Valley politics. He's a co-founder of the last remaining Young Republicans chapter in Lehigh County. He interned for State Senator Rob Wonderling in 2005 and was Desales University's Campus Chair for Santorum's failed reelection bid.

Now he's in the running for the East Penn School Board. But most important, today is his birthday!

I'd like to ask him how local Republicans have managed to keep a stranglehold in western Lehigh Valley while losing everywhere else. Maybe we can pick up a pointer or two.

Feel free to call in with your insults on Thursday between 8 and 10AM. You can livestream, and your calls are welcome at 610-866-8074. You can even post your comments here and I'll read them on the air.
Update: Many thanks to Julian Stolz, a very well-spoken and intelligent guest with interesting views. We obviously disagree on a number of important issues, but I really admire any young person who takes an interest in open and accountable government. I certainly would vote for him as a member of the East Penn School Board.

Truth: where's the conservative? I use no anonymity and never have to no credit (except from WB onlines Mark).

Not to mention that perhaps I am one of the more outspoken and well versed (which to liberals translates into fearworthy).

Doctor Rick, About a week ago, I asked anyone who wanted to try his or her hand at talk radio to drop me a line. Most bloggers are anonymous and can't come on. Now I've just teased them for that, but I do respect their decision to remain anonymous and understand why it has to be that way in some cases.

Julian Stoltz, a young conservative, asked to come on, and he's certainly welcome. Bernie K also is willing to come on the show when his schedule permits. You were certainly welcome to come on as well, but I never heard anything from you. Perhaps you didn't see the post in which I extended the invite.

Needless to say, you are welcome to share the airwaves tomorrow. Julian is on from 8 to 9, and you're welcome from 9 to 10. The addy is 5th flor, 528 N New St.

Bernie O'Hare said...

Dr. Rick, The invitation was extended from this blog on December 13. Sorry you missed it. You were probably reading the constitution or something. But you're certainly welcome tomorrow. Unfortunately, I'm booked on Thursday, and Wednesday's show is being run by Ralph Stampone.

Doctor Rick said...

Dude, this is extremely short notice, maybe I'll call in and discuss item of your choice?

email me

Bernie O'Hare said...

Dr. Rick, You can livestream the show and call in with whatever comment you'd like. Usually, people find a topic they like and that's what ends up being discussed. I usually throw out a few topics and am always surprised by what interests people.

Bernie O'Hare said...

Dr. Rick, One other point. It was not short notice. An invite was extended to one and all on 12/13.

I knew payback for the driving parody was coming, that's all right, funny man. Just for that, I'm wearing the spandex, and dancing outside the window during the show! i put new meaning into "full moon"!

Bernie O'Hare said...

Chris, I'll alert the police and expect to read about it tomorrow.

Chris Casey said...

You know Bernie, you could use a shorter opening theme

but we didn't vote for him for a reason!

Chris Casey said...

at least they didn't name him Jesus'

Here is some info:

East Penn Millage is .3916, so on a $300,000 home, your taxable value is $150,000, and the homeowner pays $5874. in school taxes.

In Parkland the amount would be $5286 on millage of 35.24

I believe both are going up next year.

Perhaps we need to abolish pensions for elected officials

Chris Casey said...

I was talking about state pensions, Federal are different.
I was an Army Vet, those folks earn their money

lvaddict said...

Woof! I want to be a Watchdog!

Chris Casey said...

Elected office should not be a career, it it supposed to be PUBLIC SERVICE

Chris Casey said...

Very diplomatically said by Julian!

It'd be a joke to pull out of Iraq immediately at this point, simply because anyone who stood and stands with us will immediately be slaughtered as soon as we leave.

However, Congress could easily have gone to war simply to take down an evil dictator. For while the United States doesn't have the best record of getting rid of evil dictators for simply the sake of humanity...we have an excellent record of taking them down because they no longer agree with our agenda under the pretext humanitarianism and raise a leader that better aligns themself with our current doctrine.
