The GOP’s War on Tea is a War on Me, Today at 12 p.m. PT (3 p.m. ET)

A warning to
the GOP
Your war on Tea
is a war on me.

As you know, the GOP leadership has made its deal with the devil this week. We’ll start this week’s show with some advice for preparing yourself, mentally and physically, for the work we have to do. Then, we’ll discuss the deal, who’s responsible for it, and what we can do to help Senators Ted Cruz, Mike Lee, among other decent politicians (there aren’t many). We need to turn up the pressure on the GOP leadership and their cronies, and then make sure Cruz & Lee get some serious backup in 2014.

Check out program notes, below, for links to the stories, etc., we plan to discuss today.

Common Core — Uncommon Danger? Today at 12 p.m. PT (3 p.m. ET)

We’ll start today’s show with a discussion of some of the week’s top stories and then continue our coverage of the Common Core — including a second-hour interview with C. Bradley Thompson, a professor at Clemson University who advocates the abolition — NOT reform — of government schools.

“Who’s In Charge?” Today at 12 p.m. PT (3 p.m. ET)

A recent Fox News poll says that only 8% of Americans believe that “the people are in charge of the government.” And, while the Constitution says the House has the power of the purse, Obama seems to think they should provide unlimited funding for him to create his egalitarian utopia. One NYT columnist is even urging Obama to ignore the rule of law and unilaterally raise the debt ceiling if the House Republicans demand concessions from him.

I don’t know about you, but I find this attitude unacceptable. Join in on the discussion today, either by phone or in the chat room. Or, if you’re listening to a podcast recording, chime in below.

Today we’ll also discuss the Common Core, a program that entails the Federal Government taking more control over the education of our children. And more. See Program Notes, below, for links to the stories we plan to discuss.
