We Welcome Bruce Chester

This week our exciting news!  The show’s new co-host is Bruce Chester.  Bruce is a faculty member in computer programming at Fitchburg State University, an entrepreneur, actor, musician and a former Republican candidate for MA House of Representatives.

We dove right in on presidential signing statements and executive orders.  Their merits as a mechanism of power for the federal executive branch of government.  The risks involved in using them more with each administration.

What are the consequences of gridlock in Congress on our political health?

Should the executive branch of government utilize this mechanism more regardless of the consequence to political representative government?

Is the democratic process important to you, listener and if executive orders offer you the solutions you desire from your government, are you willing to compromise on representative government.

How does the last 5 administrations compare in terms of the number of signing statements and executive orders used?

This and more on the latest Scotts on the Rocks Politica.

Scotts on the Rocks Politica is a political-centric broadcast that aims to lead through example.

Scott M. Graves is your host joined by a wide variety of guests from throughout the political spectrum and from a wide variety of disciplines.

Our intent is to provide rational and detailed discussion for listeners.  We’re proving we have more in common and that we’re better together than torn asunder.

Our weekly podcast features careful examinations  blendded with current events reporting from a national and local perspective.

If you appreciate local journalism with a global reach, if you want to cut through the BS and get right to the heart of the matter where it counts for your family our show was made for you.


With that in mind we’re launching an initiative we’re calling M The Media Project. This is a service of SMGraves Associates and over the months and years ahead we’re hoping to experiment with a variety of mediums, financial models and service delivery methods to deliver important news to a regional audience. 

It is our hope that we will create successful media services companies, incubated right here in central Massachusetts that have the potential of becoming replicable. 

The stakes for our society are too high for us not to take this endeavor on.  There are too many capable journalists across the country willing to take part in new and successful business enterprise dedicated to the smart delivery of local political, social and cultural stories.  The stories that tell us who we are and who we desire to be.
