Heidi Harris Show Podcast #181: Amy Klobuchar whines about gender bias

Senator Amy Klobuchar, candidate for President, is whining about “gender bias” in the campaign especially related to Pete Buttigieg and his campaign. His qualifications are thin and yet he gets an inordinate amount of attention, but that’s because he’s GAY, not because he’s a MAN. And even when there is “gender bias” women whining never helps. WORKING does.

HHS Podcast #180: Atheist Richard Dawkins admits “God” makes people behave better

Atheist Richard Dawkins does all he can to eliminate God from public life, but even HE recently admitted that without God, people would behave worse than they already do. Ya think?

HHS Podcast #179: Good news! YOU are in charge of your life!

Economy up, economy down, good politicians in, bad politicians in….either way YOU are mostly responsible for your life and finances, and how well you leave within your means, good times or bad. Aren’t you glad they don’t have that much control?

HHS Podcast #187: “I ONLY listen to (fill in the blank) news…”

It’s astounding to me that anyone would listen ONLY to NPR, or Fox News, or MSNBC, or some right wing or left wing podcaster. Really? People say that with smug looks on their faces, clearly proud of their ignorance. Sad. 

You prefer to get your news from ONE source? And you assume they’re ACCURATE? You don’t want to ever hear a point of view you don’t agree with? What are you afraid of? How shallow are your beliefs? 

Heidi Harris Show Podcast #177: Two experts weigh in on Turkey/Syria

Trump’s policy change on Turkey and Syria has people on both sides of the aisle up in arms. Is he doing the right thing? Two of my favorite go-to experts weigh in: Robert Spencer from JihandWatch.org and Lt. Col Ralph Peters, a career Army Intel veteran.

Heidi Harris Show Podcast #176: The NYT thinks the GOP is dying. Is that true?

A recent column from Dem Strategist Stanley Greenberg in the NYT claimed that the GOP is dying. What he was really hoping for is the chance to have government solve all our nation’s problems. Here’s my analysis…

Heidi Harris Show Podcast #175: Tend to your marriage or lose it

Your marriage is more important than your social media profile. That should be obvious, but I just saw a YouTube designer who revealed that her husband fell in love with someone else after nearly forty years. She mentioned this as an aside, after she talked about how many subscribers she has, and ran a video retrospective of her designs over the years. I know nothing about her, but she certainly seemed to care a great deal about complete strangers, maybe while her husband was left to rot? Just something for ALL of us to consider as we are pulled in many different directions.

Heidi Harris Show Podcast #174: Dems whining about media coverage?

I have to admit I find it hilarious that the Democrat candidates are whining about the coverage they’re getting from the press. Welcome to Donald Trump’s world. They have honestly come to expect such fawning from the MSM that they are legitimately shocked when they don’t get it. Don’t they under stand that it’s all about clicks, and not NEWS? I for one, am throughly enjoying it.

Heidi Harris Show Podcast #173: What parent do or don’t owe their adult children

Why are so many adult children today acting so entitled? The more parents give them, the worse they are often treated by their ungrateful offspring. After witnessing the manipulation and guilt adult children lay on their parents, Linda Herman, a retired psychotherapist, has written a great book on the subject, entitled “Parents to the End”. She even includes a “Parents’ Bill of Rights” in the book. My chat with her was fascinating.

Heidi Harris Show Podcast #172: Do what you can with what you have, where you are

Teddy Roosevelt was quoted as saying, “Do what you can with what you have, where you are”. Great advice, and something I continue to tell myself when I don’t have the all tools I think I need to succeed. Like most people, there are aspects of my job that are out of my control.

Whether you’re a politician, a general, a musician, or a talk show host, you will at times be hindered by disinterested staff, small budgets, or poor leadership. And if you’re a person like me, who wants to make everything better, that can be a tough pill to swallow. If your name is on the show or the building, it’s worse.

Learn to do what you can with what you have, and smile when you’re asked about things you have no ability to correct. And a glass of wine might help.
