Today’s Events & Food For Thought

Today’s Events & Food For Thought

Greetings Everyone!

Two events going on today:

Today Independent liberal blogger Yvette Carnell & I host our first webinar to discuss the political hot topics of the day! We are two black, female bloggers/thinkers from opposite ends of the political spectrum, coming together to have a “calmversation“. We will begin at 6:30pmEDT/3:30pmPDT. Please feel free to invite others/share. You may listen via the internet by clicking here or by telephone by calling (309) 944-9515 We decided to discuss the following topics live instead of our blogs (although we may follow-up via blog) and instead of only one topic we will be covering four briefly:

Topics for discussion:
(1) Romney released his 2011 tax return, now what?
(2) Chick-Fil-A vs the city of Chicago
(3) Should Jesse Jackson Jr step down from his seat in the House?
(4) Team Re-Elect Obama & the economy.
Then at 8:30pmEDT I’ll be on KIRP Conservative radio with host “Pudgy” Miller. Listen here via the internet here,   on BlogTalk Radio www.blogtalk.com/kirpradioshow or via telephone  (619) 638-8559. I look forward to having all of you!

Today’s Food For Thought

Some people simply cannot see beyond political labels & quite frankly, this way of thinking impedes the progress of our great nation. Many conservatives think that liberals carry all of the of the blame for our economic & social downfalls, and many liberals think the same of conservatives. I say, it is those, whose own intellectual development is in such a retarded way & whose moral reckoning has succumbed to decline so great, that not only will said individuals be forever enslaved to & distracted by labels, but any society whose democratic body mainly consists of them, will continuously collapse.

~Talitha~

Everyone have a blessed & wonderful Sunday!

Introducing the “Bloguement” (Conservative vs Liberal)

Introducing the “Bloguement” (Conservative vs Liberal)

One of the things that troubles me as I participate in & observe the plethora of political discussions throughout social media is the manner in which conservatives & liberals argue at one another & engage in name calling, instead of healthy, respectful dialogue. So a few months ago I asked for recommendations for a liberal with whom I could have such civil discourse with, even though we are ideologically opposed. I was specifically looking for a liberal blogger and after several recommendations, I was introduced to Yvette Carnell through our mutual Facebook friend Charlie Harris, who is also a Christian Conservative. After several discussions we both agreed that it would be a great idea to host this “bloguement”, featuring honest, civil debate in blog form on the political & social hot topics of the day.

Yvette Carnell is a self-professed Independent Liberal who is an editor of African-American news site yourblackword.net and also maintains her own popular blog breakingbrown.com. She is a former Hill staffer, writer, editor, social media enthusiast & I consider her a very worthy “opponent”.In all honesty, in my view, debating her is sort of like debating the liberal version of myself (if there were such a thing). She is also a fellow native of Atlanta, Georgia and a young black woman as am I. Her erudite commentary on social & political topics is well known throughout the liberal blogosphere. Yvette is a political analyst for the African-American business and politics site Madame Noire (formerly atlantapost.com) and she also contributes to internet newspaper giant The Huffington Post. Yvette is also a featured video commentator, in the popular videos of yourblackworld.net creator Dr. Boyce Watkins on Youtube.

I’m a Christian Conservative blogger, Republican & member of the Tea Party. My articles have appeared on numerous political blogs & websites including the Yahoo News Contributor Network,  KiraDavis.net, former GOP presidential nominee Herman Cain’s CainTV & of course my own blog, Conservative Calmversation. I’m known throughout the conservative blogosphere for my provocative topics, candid opinions, humor & apologetics for the Conservative cause & the Christian faith. I am also featured on the Facebook page dedicated to highlight minority women within the Conservative movement, Conservative Black Women. I am also an editorial writer for Black Literature Magazine. The first novel of my fictional series, The Elements Book I is due for publication in early 2013 and my website is here. On Sundays, I host a 30 minute BlogTalkradio show called BookReads, highlighting authors of fiction.

The first topic that Yvette & I will be “blogueing” on is “Design your Ideal Healthcare Plan for America”. We both agree that the current state of healthcare in the private sector has not, is not & never has worked. We both dislike Obamacare, but for different reasons. Yvette is in favor of true universal healthcare run by the government and I am in favor of true healthcare reform, finally repairing what is wrong with the broken system we have had. Stay tuned, it’s going to be a very interesting endeavor on both of our parts! Input your email address (and confirm) on both of our blogsites to receive each edition of our “bloguement” to your email inbox!
