Sarah Palin: What Does She Mean?

Posted in Salon Episodes with tags , , , , , , , , , , on September 20, 2008 by Rick Vanderslice

This salon was recorded on Sunday, September 14, 2008, at Dallas’ Buli Cafe on the Cedar Springs Strip. Our issue is the Gov. of Alaska, and vice presidential running mate to John McCain, Sarah Palin. Two weeks ago she was unknown to the vast majority of Americans. Today, she is one heartbeat away from the possible President of the United States. Everyone is engaged in a crash course on this self described “maverick”; “soccer mom”; “religious conservative.” What is her political, social, and religious philosophy? Is she qualified to be on the world political stage? What are her views on Separation of Church and State? Gay Rights? Choice? Morality? Joining salon host RICK VANDERSLICE around the square table in the cafes’ Library Nook are: writer/blogger/poet RJ JACKSON; social/political observer ROY CALHOUN; writer/podcaster JOHN SELIG.

Posted in Salon Episodes with tags , , , , , on July 20, 2008 by Rick Vanderslice

This Buli Salon was recorded on Sunday, July 13, 2008 in the Library Nook of the Buli Cafe in Dallas. Today we debate the death penalty in the United States. With the close 5 to 4 decision from the Supreme Court, finding it to be cruel and unusual punishment to apply the death penalty to child rape convictions, unless the victim dies, our salon members consider the impact of this emotional ruling and consider the larger social and moral dimension of todays question: Should America Abolish The Death Penalty? Joining RICK VANDERSLICE are two regular salon members: writer and blogger RJ JACKSON and activist, writer, and podcaster JOHN SELIG. Also joining in for the first time is real estate executive THOMAS GARCIA.
