“The Consequences of Cowardice,” TODAY at 3 p.m. ET (12 p.m. PT)

Philosopher Ayn Rand was quoted as saying “I am not brave enough to be a coward. I see the consequences too clearly.” What have been the consequences of cowardice with respect to North Korea? What might be the consequences with respect to Antifa? This and more on today’s show. See Program Notes, below, for all the stories, etc., I plan to discuss.

“Charlottesville and the American Sense of Life 2,” FRIDAY at 3 p.m. ET (12 p.m. PT)

More on the aftermath of Charlottesville and what it says about the state of the spirit behind American Exceptionalism–what Ayn Rand called the uniquely American Sense of Life. A couple other topics planned, too, see Program Notes below for all the stories, etc., I plan to discuss.

(NOTE: Due to technical difficulties at BlogTalk Radio, I had to abort today’s show. (I was disconnected after 2 minutes in and could not reconnect no matter what I did!) I’ve rescheduled for Friday, so I hope you can join me then. The link below is the updated link.)
