This Week’s Topics:
–Ned Ryun, President of AmericanMajority.org, joins us to discuss how to spot a Tea Party crasher posing as a teabagger.
–Craig Melin, President and CEO of Cooley Dickinson Hospital, joins us to discuss how the recent healthcare bill affects hospitals, whether hospitals get reimbursed in an ethical way, and more.
–Producer Louis has a makeover at Jackson and Connor, and might start dressing his age.
–Have we seen the first murder influenced by the Arizona immigration law?
–Immigrant basher Ed Kowalski claimed in 2007 that illegals committed 9000 murders, and in 2010 claimed the number was 2200. If you believe him, then you must believe the US is doing incredibly well with regard to illegal immigration. Otherwise, he must be making up his numbers.
–Times Square bomber Faisal Shahzad, including his background, bombing attempt, and controversy over whether he should have been Mirandized and where he should be tried.
–Senator Kit Bond seems to think there is no reason to Mirandize and try people in US courts if it seems “there is enough evidence to convict them.”
–Ann Coulter suggests that liberals always support those who are against civilization, including Nazis, while Sean Hannity proposes the Iraqis pay the US back for the cost of an occupation they did not ask for, and wanted to end years ago.
–A protester gets into a taping of Pat Robertson’s 700 Club and, as you can imagine, it is hilarious.
–More on the hilarious George Rekers scandal, where an anti-gay Baptist minister who went out of his way for years to make life more difficult for homosexuals turns out to be hiring gay male prostitutes.
–New stations and audience emails about George Rekers, Arizona immigration, Congressman Dennis Kucinich, Glenn Miller, and more.
