Due to another work-related conflict, this week’s show will again air live, Saturday night, 11 p.m. ET (8 p.m. PT). I don’t have a title yet (watch this space), but rattling around in my head I have Prince and some ideas about Hope (which I have previously written about here). And of course I’ll throw in some discussion about the election, along with some outrageous news stories for good measure. With respect to this last, perhaps something like this (HT Rob Abiera).
I’ll fill out this post closer to show time, tomorrow, with Program Notes, etc.
Join in live, either by phone or in the chat room at BlogTalk Radio!

I hope you mention the overblown attention to Prince when our soldiers die at 18 and 19 everyday!! No attention to the military at all
I hope everyone who reads this will go to Google videos and search “America” by Prince and watch that live performance. It always blew me away that this was not a go to anthem for New Years and 4th of July Celebrations or sporting events. HOPEFULLY it will be now.
Some additional info on Prince that you might find interesting. Prince, according to that awful man Toure of MSNBC fame, was a Conservative Republican. Toure is a biographer of Prince. He lamented that Prince probably just wanted to keep his money and therefore took these views. But Prince was “progressive’ on issues of race according to Toure. Whatever that means. Also, Prince would not vote for President Obama because he was a Jehovas Witness at the time, and he felt he would show no deference to Obama by voting for him. Prince was very interesting and was my all time favorite. I listened to him ever since I got his Batman album when I was a kid. He reportedly has a vault of 2000 unreleased tracks which shows how prolific and amazing he was. RIP
Here’s a link to the Dave Chappelle Prince skit that I mentioned on tonight’s show.
And here’s an iTunes link to Prince’s song, The Beautiful Ones, which is the first song I thought of and played when I heard he died.
Highest praise for Cruz:
Boehner had these choice words for Cruz: “I get along with almost everyone, but I have never worked with a more miserable son of a bitch in my life.”
Latin America Needs Strong Liberty Advocates
Brazil Conference Highlights Need for Change Across the Continent
April 29, 2016 at 2:31 pm
The Atlantos Conference and the renowned Liberty Forum took place this week in Porto Alegre, Brazil. The event brought together more than 3,000 people in what makes up the largest meeting on principles and ideas of freedom in Latin America.
With that curious spirit, they searched and found the answer on the hidden part of the library, which few colleges and universities bring to light and exposes to students. And they discovered that in addition to Kant, Marx, Hegel, Sartre and Keynes, there is a different world of ideas led by authors such as Smith, Locke, Bastiat, Bacon, Rothbard, Mises, Hayek, Friedman and Rand, among many others.
Reading these authors, they realized that the virus that afflicts Latin America is based primarily on the adoption of a code of values that puts the collective over the individual, the whim over reason, needs over law and justice.
And on behalf of society, nation, common good, social justice, equality and many other grandiloquent but poorly defined terms, this code has transformed the individual into a sacrificial animal for the whim, desire or group-need.
The result of these ideas is clear: A region inhabited by infants waiting for “someone” to take charge of their lives — waiting for that “someone” or politician who, under his name, takes the opportunity to legally steal the wealth of others, fill their personal coffers and spread misery.
But in Brazil, these young people have made it out of the matrix, making it clear that what Brazil and Latin America need is a new code of values. A code that puts the individual on the pedestal, and their right to liberty, property and pursuit of happiness are fundamental and inviolable principles.
The work of several similar groups is needed across the continent. With their energy and enthusiasm to battle for liberal ideas that represent the only effective antibiotic for a system that has destroyed everything it touched.
Latin America shows what happens when you have a mixed race society. Whites living in their gated community and the mestizos in their favelas.
It’s coming to the USA.
