“Some Men Just Want To Watch The World Burn,” today at 12 p.m. PT (3 p.m. ET)

The title of today’s show was inspired by smoke I smelled during my morning walk. I heard at least some of the fires raging in So. Cal. this week were attributed to arson, and thought about the pure nihilism arson represents. HT to Bosch Fawstin for recalling the apt movie line from The Dark Knight!

Don’t Let It Go! Today at 12 p.m. PT (3 p.m. CT)

Today we will revisit Ayn Rand’s essay, “Don’t Let It Go,” which was the inspiration for the name of my blog and my podcast. We’ll look at our nation’s actions, culture and sense of life, and ask: How are we doing in 2014 vs. in 1971, when Rand published the original essay?

In the process we’ll be discussing, as usual, some recent news stories. See Program Notes, below for all the stories, etc., we plan to discuss.

Dude! A Pro-American Administration Is, Like, So Three Decades Ago!

Today we can’t resist talking about the Obama Administration lackey who called Brett Baier “Dude” on Fox News yesterday. It’s a perfect encapsulation of the Obama Administration: Its conviction that it has the media in its pocket, its contempt for the American people, its lack of decorum, its refusal to be held accountable—both for its failure to do its job, and for its insistence on doing a whole bunch of things that aren’t its job. A number of the stories we will discuss today touch on this theme, but there’s a lot more as you’ll see in the program notes, below.
