Another Social Media-Heavy Show This Week!

I loved focusing on tweets, posts, comments and emails on the show last week. It helped me bring a wide-range of original thinking to the audience & raised the level of the discussion…many thanks! Let’s do it again! This week I want to talk about education… It’s graduation week for many colleges–UGA’s commencement is Friday. (more…)

A Libertarian Take on School Loans & International Students

This is part of a series I’m testing out called: The Propaganda Report, Your MSM Companion. Here’s what it’s about: I read the WSJ to keep up with the official narrative–if we know what they’re trying to feed us, we might be able to figure out why. I have concluded that nothing in The Wall (more…)

Guilty verdicts reached for 11 of 12 in APS cheating trial

Guilty verdicts reached for 11 of 12 in APS cheating trial. Should these people go to jail? Did they do it to defraud the government out of bonus money or was the “pressure to perform” just too intense? Did they harm the kids? How much did the kids lose out but not spending more time (more…)

Campaign for Liberty Wants You!

I was tickled to find that Mary Barbee, a fan of the show and a local political activist, decided to open a Bartow County Chapter of the Campaign for Liberty, the organization founded by Ron Paul in 2008 to keep the momentum going after his inspiring presidential bid.

An Interesting Passage from Quigley’s Tragedy & Hope

On Saturday’s show I mentioned a concept I picked up from Carrol Quigley’s Tragedy and Hope: that culture changes when children’s values are disconnected from their parents;’ this can happen in any of a number of ways from technological progress to outside cultural influences.

Tomorrow on the Show 3PM-6PM ET….Elizabeth Warren Floats Another Lead Balloon

Well, in a rational world it would be a lead balloon, but knowing Elizabeth Warren’s Midas Touch, it’s more likely this will be the next cause célèbre for the Democrats. Her plan? Elizabeth Warren wants to further subsidize student loans by implementing the Buffet Rule…In her words, “It’s billionaires or students.” See for yourself… I (more…)

The Story of Stuff: Propagandizing Your Children
