This salon was recorded on Sunday, September 14, 2008 at the Buli Cafe on the Cedar Springs Strip in Dallas. We continue our discussion on the 2008 Presidential campaign with an important question for all critically thinking voters: Can Object Reality Be Found In American Politics? How can voters find object facts to better inform their voting? Are there sources available to find objective information on the candidates and the issues? Do facts always matter in American political campaigns? Joining salon host RICK VANDERSLICE at the square table in the cafes’ Library Nook are three talented and engaging thinkers: writer/blogger/poet RJ JACKSON; social/political observer ROY CALHOUN; writer/podcaster JOHN SELIG

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.
