  1. Your show has been a breath of fresh air. I work in social services in Minneapolis, so I feel as though I’m on an island in terms of my values and political views. Having a dissenting opinion is not an option with this crowd, and it definitely gets isolating. Although I do not agree with everything I hear on the show, I listen almost daily, appreciating the variety of discussion, rationality, and historical insights. Thanks!

  2. The first time I ever heard about Gavin Newsom, was in an interview that Adam Corolla posted ~10 years ago. I was living in Kuala Lumpur at the time and podcasts were my main connection with what was going on in the US. How he ever got elected as Lt. Governor of California baffled me.
    My current hypothesis is that there is something in the water in San Francisco.

      I think it’s more an example to prove what Alexander Fraser Tytler said about a republic. It’s been boiled down to a bumper sticker, and attributed variously to Franklin, de Tocqueville, and others, but in it’s original form, it’s still best:

      “A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largesse from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship. The average age of the world’s greatest civilizations has been 200 years. These nations have progressed through this sequence: From bondage to spiritual faith; From spiritual faith to great courage; From courage to liberty; From liberty to abundance; From abundance to selfishness; From selfishness to apathy; From apathy to dependence; From dependence back into bondage.”

  3. A few years ago in 70% black Baltimore a black business man said on local radio that he met with several city politicians of his race and asked them why all of the years of getting Federal and State money hadn’t fixed the many problems. He said “They laughed and told me that if they fixed the problems the government money would stop”. That covers everything failing; from the schools to all the other crumbling municipal services.
