About Chris Scott:

By the time I was a teenager I had gotten a bit rebellious. At 17 I ran away to join the Marine Corps. I was a bit of what you might call a disgruntled teenager. It’s not that I was bad I would say I was more like aggressive. And the Marine Corps was a perfect fit. And, in a lot of ways maybe it was my destiny. Because both my parents were Marines and I was born in Beaufort South Carolina which is where Marine Corps boot camp, Paris Island is located. So in a lot of ways I went back to my roots and I still consider myself a bit of a Good Ole Boy. What I mean by that is common sense thinking, plain talk and telling it like it is. I try to bring some of that to the show.

​While most other podcasts are resorting to foul language, name calling and, even spreading rumors I’ve resisted all that. So, I try to be nice but sometimes when people don’t make sense – IT’S HARD. That’s kind of the point of the show – common sense. I laugh at some of the stuff I see and hear because, as us good ole boys sometimes say, “that just don’t make sense”.

​When I came home from the Marine Corps I was just 20 years old. I was a lean, mean, combat veteran and to say the aggressiveness of my teen years had reached a new level would be an understatement.

​I was a serious young man, very serious and approached everything that way. I was anxious to have a successful career in real estate development. I tried some college for a few semesters but I just couldn’t fit in. The kids seemed so immature to me and I was so serious that their carrying on and lack of discipline bothered me. But I was driven, very driven and I worked hard. It was during this time I was influenced by another voice.

Jewish Perspectives on the News and Politics with Burt Siegel

This program will not hold back on what the host and his guests believe is wrong with an American society in which anti-Jewish sentiments as well as racism have become too often tolerated, where cooperation across party lines is treated as treachery, where immigrants and refugees are seen as a threat to the “American Way of Life” and the gap between the ultra wealthy and the average American is ever widening. While it will reflect the values of Judaism and the Democratic party all are welcomed to share their thoughts regarding how we can achieve the dream of what our nation aspires to be about.
