  • Good program on Fracking… Corporate entities have no compunction desecrating & decimating NE Iowa’s hills for profit.

    Concerns: 1. The silica sands being mined in Iowa are transported to OTHER states…used, NOT for our energy independence, but for corporate profits: US companies EXPORT over 100 million TONS of coal every year…and are preparing to export the “fracked gas,” as well.
    2. It takes over one MILLION GALLONS of water to “frack” just ONE shale-oil well ….depleting local groundwater and can also dry up nearby creeks. Plus, the wastewater produced contains high levels of radioactivity that can’t be treated in our wastewater treatment plants.

    People forget that Iowa/America doesn’t have an infinite supply of clean water & when it’s contaminated our health is adversely affected.

  • Good segment on gun violence today, Ed. Thanks for the window into the real world of the issue as gun killings continue to grow each day at the rate of 34 murders on average and 50 suicides.

  • Are we going to hear about NDAA and war crimes by this administration? pro peace people during Bush time are in deep scary silence now. Are the lives of those civilians and American soldiers are less important when the war crimes are committed by the administration you happened to support 4 years ago. Please people have some conscience

  • I subscribed to one of our Senators e-mail newsletters and afterwards I decided to voice my opinion on a certain issue in an e-mail to the Senator. It wasn’t very long after I sent the e-mail I received a letter from the Iowa Dept. of Revenue stating that I owed $170 and I stopped receiving the newsletters. After I paid the tax (about 8 wks. later) I began receiving the newsletters again. Just another one of those things that makes you go Hmmm?

  • The road to hell is paved with good intentions. Never trust anyone who says, “Trust me.” more than once.

  • when i lived in saudi arabia, i would get up at 4a.m. just to listen to him (hank jr) sing the monday night football jingle and then stay up to watch the game…now, i wouldn’t cross the street to speak to him…much less give him a dime of my money.
    i am thoroughly disgusted that the iowa state fair allowed this idiot to perform…who’s on the board? might be a need to do some house cleaning there.
    keeps ME from attending the fair, that’s for sure.

  • “Those who profess to favor freedom and yet depreciate agitation, are people who want crops without ploughing the ground; they want rain without thunder and lightning; they want the ocean without the roar of its many waters. The struggle may be a moral one, or it may be a physical one, or it may be both. But it must be a struggle. Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did and it never will.”
    ? Frederick Douglass

  • What is the caller “Frank” doing right now? Shouting down on the phone is still shouting down. Whether the tactics of CCI are your cup of tea, yelling when you are being hurt is a natural human tendency. Personally, I don’t find the tactic to be my way of being peaceful, but I can appreciate those who are comfortable in doing so.

  • Good job flipping the comments! Now you should move the “leave a Reply” to the top. Just sayin’. :-)

  • The Republic is offering the change that this country needs, no more mouth service obama bye bye!

  • How are we allowed to smoke cigarettes but aren’t allowed to leave our seatbelt off? Let me tell you why, revenue at the expense of our freedoms.

  • I agree with the comment below. Hope you read these comments Ed, because this one is a good one:

    You should reshuffle your comment section so that the most recent comments appear at the top rather than at the bottom.

  • Finally had the chance to listen in – great program, including the “commercials” and music. I also like the “just sayin’” guy. Thanks for providing the background on the effort to replace King.

  • Republicans think that the heads of corporations making windfall profits and bonuses are plowing the money back into the economy, improving it. But I can think of things they are doing with it that is not improving the economy, like using it to influence foreign governments to remove labor restrictions, Swiss bank accounts, yachts in Monte Carlo, etc. (given they don’t have to pay taxes)

  • Sorry. Human error, not a computer glitch this time. Will have it up and running tomorrow. Thanks for pointing it out.

  • It’s too bad this thing doesn’t work, or that FF is off the air today. Either way it would be good to give listeners some sort of heads up.

  • Ed how about we start charging bicycles a tax for using roads and trails?

  • Hi Ed – do you suppose part of the issue of division in our country is the presumption that we need to have parties with whom to affiliate? Why not be Americans?

  • Freedoms Conference in Wilkes-Barre, PA. Ed, you are in a great position from your experiences, especially from being a legislator because that has given you a MUCH more broad perspective of how local, state, and federal governments work with businesses, corporations, and communities for healthy growth and development. This gives you the ability to take a polar view, like abortion,that you are currently discussing with Frank, from DM, and ask viable, pertinent questions to think of the view of another and learn what has happened in their life to bring them to a position. Deliberation and dialogue are fabulous tools to work toward progressing TOGETHER toward positive, healthy growth. It works. We’ve done it! Thanks for balance. Take care.

  • Ed, why is it that most of the people who are supportive of nuclear energy also can’t seem to pronounce it correctly?

  • You should reshuffle your comment section so that the most recent comments appear at the top rather than at the bottom.

    Also, thanks for the segment on bees!

  • Bob Woodburn, Jr.

    Present and accounted for, Ed. :)

  • I’m looking at this home page and can’t find what station you broadcast on or what frequency.

  • Great show today, Ed. I think (and hope) you opened a few eyes to the Iowa judicial system and how it can be manipulated to sway the outcome of a trial. The thought of tax-payers money being spent by the so called “fiscally responsible” on a “crime” that has minimal consequences and fines is border line absurd.

  • See you at noon tomorrow! I have a bit about drones and F-16s.

  • Its all about industrialization. There are few mom and pop businesses. your food, clothes, furniture all come from huge multinational corporations.

  • Absolutely we can take Internet calls. But I have to figure out how it works to be able to explain it!

  • Looking forward to this endeavor.



  • Hi Ed

    It seems to me the large radio corporations don’t want competition. They seem to be owned by Republicans supporters who attempt to use radio to fight “liberal main stream media” even though radio is main stream media. Is it the moderates and Dems control TV and conservatives own radio? Regardless, radio is dead.

    Anyway, Ed, and you too Bradshaw, keep up the good fight.

    Dubuque, IA

  • Bradshaw, we hope you continue to make you views available to us folk. Maybe I’m just out of the loop but I’ve not heard much about you since your wow firing. Continue the fight! Good luck.

  • Way to go, Ed and Bradshaw! Keep up the great work telling the truth about the corporate media.

  • I’m listening from Sioux City. Will you take “calls” via the internet or only by phone? When I submit a comment, the broadcast is interrupted.

    “I’m not sure, Gerald, but will look into it.” – Ed

  • Your advertisements remind me of A Prairie Home Companion. Will they fade away now that you’re online video?

    “Thanks, Gerald. And the down-home ads will keep running. Hopefully, we’ll also attract some new business partners.” — Ed
