DATE CHANGE: Here's a Thought with Charles Shaughnessy for Thursday October 8, 2015

Hey there Thoughters!  
CHARLIE WILL BE WORKING ON THURSDAY OCTOBER 1ST filming a tv show. We will not be able to do a live #HAT show.  WE WILL BE SHOWING THE RFK RIDE AGAIN ON TRADIOV.COM AT 
3 PM/pt THIS THURSDAY! HERE'S A THOUGHT WILL RETURN LIVE ON OCTOBER 8th.

Well, the 25 mile virtual ride for RFK Children's Action Corp in the Rodman Ride for kids is over, but the fund raising is not! November 16th, 2015 is the final day to help out, so for those of you who have asked, there is still time.  

Marianne added another $50 dollar donation to Charlie's fund raising page and as a thank you from Charlie, Janne, our brilliant cartoonist, made Marianne a special, personal cartoon of that time she met Charlie & Susan Shaughnessy at HARVEY!


For a $50 dollar donation to Charlie's fund raising page, you too can get a cartoon of your own choice. Above is an example of PART of the cartoon and the photo it was taken from! 

To see photo and media coverage of the ride check out the event page on Facebook, that is constantly getting updated! To watch Charlie's ride and the 1 hour event video, you can see that here at this link.

Charlie will be sharing photos and videos from both his ride and the riders in Boston on Here's a Thought this Thursday, October 1 at 3 pm/PT on TradioV.com.

The rest of the #HAT show will be covering current topics that are in the news.  If you have comments or questions for Charlie, either about the ride or what's going on in the news in the world, please post them in the comments section here on the blog.  

Charlie also has a great "WHAT IF?" question that he will be 'thoughting about' and posing to all of you, so be sure and watch the show LIVE on TradioV.com or the video on demand after the show.

Looking forward to seeing you all on Thursday, October 8th at 3 pm/pt.  PLEASE NOTE THAT WE CHANGED THE DATE FOR THIS EPISODE OF HERE'S A THOUGHT!

 "Here's A thought with Charles Shaughnessy" begins season two, LIVE online on September 17th at 3 pm PST from the studios of TradioV, that's RADIO . . . in TV!

Cartoons by Janne

I am planning to re-cap the summer this week with photos and clips of all the shows and talk a bit about each, talk about what's coming up, my virtual ride for Robert F. Kennedy Children's Action Corphow you can watch it LIVE on TradioV.com and donate to help me raise the rest of my pledge.

If there is time, also talk about what is in the news right now, on Thursday's first show. To that end, I wanted to 'throw' this THOUGHT out to you. 


To me, there is nothing surprising or shocking about the irresistible rise of Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders. When push comes to shove, I have always believed that the American people, as a kind of collective energy, will do the "right thing." Whether it be in jury trials or elections, they will, in the end, rise above the  cacophony, shrug off personal bias and make a reasonable choice. We may not always like it, but it will be an understandable choice given the evidence and circumstances. For decades Americans have been warning their politicians that they were falling short: focused selfishly on re-election, obsessed with the money/fuel to get there, cowed by small but LOUD "interest groups" and either ignorant or disinterested in the issues that actually concerned the "man in the street." Well, that same "man in the street," on both sides of the political street, has finally found a way to deliver the message once and for all. 

We are in the process of throwing out a dysfunctional political system. It is as profound and as revolutionary a process as the one that took place in 1776, but with less bloodshed. There will always be policy makers, bureaucrats, professional advisers to the President who will be responsible for the actual running of the government, gathering intelligence, steering the economy, managing The State, but the person in charge, the person with ultimate, decision-making responsibility could be someone who is making those decisions free of badgering special interest or personal ambition. It is almost like turning the clock back to the early days of this nation when politicians were made up of farmers, businessmen and lawyers who saw a civic duty to serve their country for awhile before returning to their real jobs. Trump or Sanders? Well, that depends on which vision, policy direction, future for this country you prefer. But I am excited that this is the choice we might have. It has been a long time a comin'.

If YOU have thoughts to share, please post them here on the blog in the comments section.
