Ethan Explains 4/15/16

Senator Bernie Sanders and Secretary Hillary Clinton battled last night in the Democratic Party debate in New York City. And the Belgian Transport Minister stepped down because of security failures at the airports in Belgium. Isn’t it time we expect people in our government to step down when they fail at their job?

We are Fat or Plus Sized and Obese April 14, 2016

Husky size used to be the exception now we are fat, why? The Washington Post is reporting today that retailers are expanding their plus sized offerings, just like our waistlines.

“These findings may help explain why still more retailers are looking to expand their plus-size assortments. Teen-centric retailer American Eagle Outfitters says it working toward offering extended sizes on its e-commerce site later this year. And department store chain Bon-Ton expects to roughly double the number of stores that carry its “young contemporary” plus-size line this spring.”

In other words we just keep getting fatter.

TALKERS 2016 #87 in All of Talk Media

Talkers 87

Thank you to TALKERS Magazine for ranking me the #87 talk media host in the United States for 2016! I am deeply honored to be in some great company.

For those keeping score, that is up 9 places from last year and the third year in a row of making the Heavy Hundred!


The editorial board of TALKERS magazine announces the posting of the 2016 installment of the publication’s annual feature, “The 100 Most Important Radio Talk Show Hosts in America.”  This is the 21stconsecutive year that the talk media trade journal (that is about to mark its 26th anniversary) has been compiling and publishing the list – also known as “The Heavy Hundred.”  According to TALKERS VP/executive editor Kevin Casey, “This year’s list includes a number of familiar faces (and voices) as well as new up-and-comers and some radio pros who are in new situations.”  Casey continues, “Needless to say, compiling this list is extremely challenging – especially since it draws upon both objective and subjective factors – and is the source of heated debate every year among our editors for months leading up to its release.”

Trump and Charity April 11, 2016

So Trump gave zero dollars in cash to charities last year. Should a billionaire give less than an 8 year old boy?

Fox News Red Eye with Tom Shillue February 13, 2016


Fox News Red Eye with Tom Shillue February 13, 2016

New York City was a cold, but welcome place yet again on February 13, 2016! I had a great time chatting with host Tom Shillue, Joanne Nosuchinsky, comedian Justy Dodge, The Daily Beast Washington Bureau Editor Will Rahn, and of course Andy Levy on Fox News Red Eye about:

  • Kanye West and his odd Twitter feud with Taylor Swift
  • Kanye and his odd demands of models in his show
  • Senator Ted Cruz and his ad with a soft core porn actress
  • Cruz’s brilliant Office Space ad
  • Hillary Clinton’s longtime top aide Huma Abedin had an awkward moment pushing away a supporter who wanted to hug her
  • and a brand new Titanic, the Titanic II, is being built. Would you ride on it?

Take a look at three of the videos, leave your comments below, and please share with others!

United Technologies Moves Carrier Jobs To Mexico

Do you support free trade? What about labor unions? Or how about environmental and labor laws?

Another 1,400 manufacturing and distribution jobs lost. I am angry, I understand the pain of the workers. Why did the giant military-industrial supplier United Technologies think it was best to move the jobs to Mexico?

The cost of energy, taxes, transportation, environmental mitigation expenses, and actual labor laws here in the United States. Oh yeah, and greed. Corporations don’t have loyalty to anything other than money. People are who have ethics and need to be in charge.

There is also the fact that many workers at this facility are in the United Steelworkers Union. What did the union do to help keep their workers competitive? Did they constantly ask for more money or less work? Or did they spend the dues collected on political donations and other crony actions?

Think about those factors are you support “free trade” in conjunction with labor and environmental laws we pass here. When we protect the environment and workers rights, we become uncompetitive in a global market, working against manufacturing jobs in the USA. And no, a centrally planned economy for you Socialists and Communists, will never work either (see Venezuela and their rationing of everything since their re-nationalization has broken their economy).

Look, I want Mexico to have a growing economy with jobs for their people. What I don’t want is American jobs lost for that result. It does not need to be a zero-sum process, their is room for both countries to grow manufacturing jobs.

However, the contradictory stances of people here in the United States is pushing this process along. Either stop supporting “free trade” or stop supporting labor and environmental laws. They ARE mutually exclusive unless the trading partner supports labor and environmental rules as well.

If you are unhappy with this move to replace American workers with workers in Monterrey, Mexico, then boycott Carrier & Bryant heating and air conditioning systems. But, you also have to be consistent in what you are supporting.

My thoughts are similar to some of the expletives said by workers in this video.
