Illegal Aliens and boats have something in common...an anchor

Program Time: 8AM-10AM EST

Nothing can expose people's feelings about the illegal alien issue any faster than the topic of Anchor Babies.  Obviously, the candidates for President of the United States of America realize this is a hot topic and are hitting the circuit talking about what they will do about this issue when they become President. I wonder if they have ever heard of the 14th Amendment to the Constitution?

Trump vs Trump and everyone else

Since my first involvement in the political world I cannot remember anyone getting the media, the general public and both of the major political parties so, let’s say excited. I have to ask for help in understanding why all the commotion?

Why are people getting upset and jumping all over, even condemning, the one person who is saying things many of us want to say or at least have asked ourselves? Every one of us know “The Don” is a flamboyant, boisterous, in your face, brutal showman. There is no doubt he can be rude, crude and distasteful.

 

However, with all that said, I like Donald Trump.

I’m not saying if he were to win the election he would be the greatest President ever to sit in the White House. I am not saying I would or would not support “the man with the hair”.

 What I am saying is I like his flare. I like the fact he is not soft spoken. I like that he is not concerned about being politically correct at all times. Most of all, I like that by his words and actions he is making the rest of the political world take stock that someone is willing to speak up about the lack of true leadership and positive results that have plagued all political arenas for decades.

 Trump has proven there is a streak of being a human within him. He has made several remarks that did not come out in the right way. Like all of us, he has opened his mouth without thinking and said things that just were not right. When the spout is open sometimes it is hard to shut.

When that happens Trump and the rest of us have to do damage control while the media and those who look for reasons to pounce on our ever slip of the tongue make us look like lepers and sound like squealing hogs being prepped for the smoker.

 Trump has provided entertainment we would have never enjoyed if he was not in the race. Have any of you ever seen Senator Lindsey Graham do slapstick comedy as he did while destroying his antique cellphone? Don’t forget all the new hair jokes, political cartoons and social media discussions.

Trump made many people realize that although someone can be a hero (heroic deeds and actions can never be taken away) but, there comes a time when current actions, or in-actions, must be examined. 

We also know many people who have entered into this country from all over the world. Many are criminals and guilty of all kinds of atrocities. We also know many more legal and illegals have come into this country looking for the same things our ancestors were seeking: personal liberties, freedom of religion, opportunities and more.

 Let’s be honest and accept the fact that all of us have been waiting for someone to shake up the system. What’s that saying, “Be careful about what you wish for. It may just come true.”

Can the USA pass a Balanced Budget Amendment? Should we? - 3/24/2015 Show



[SHOW LINK AT BOTTOM]

Jump "In the Pickle Barrel" as we dedicated the morning to the slug-fest to get our country's budget under control. The Conservative Right is trying it's best to get a Balanced Budget Amendment passed.

The Liberal Left will hear nothing concerning a balanced budget. I am not sure anyone knows what a Balanced Budget means! Well, Tuesday, March 24, 2015 is Balanced Budget Day "In the Pickle Barrel".

At approximately the 8:30AM mark, Congressman Tom Rice (R-SC) will be joining us to give his take on the issue. At the 9AM mark, Congressman Renee Ellmers (R-North Carolina) will share her opinion on the issue.

Hopefully other invited guess will share Balanced Budget Day with us during our discussions.

Time for Speaker Boehner to exercise leadership

This next week the "New Congress" will take their seats at the big table.
One of the first actions will be the selection of the Speaker of the House. John Boehner, the current Speaker, has faced some very tough times over the past couple of years. 

There is a major push to replace the Speaker and this move is already causing "a split" in the GOP ranks.

I like John Boehner. I believe he has performed well, not very well, just well
during these troubling times; I think the time has come for a change.


The GOP is facing a new experience...control of the Congress. 

No, it is not the first time this has happened. But it has been a while since they 
have been "in control". Although there are conflicting opinions on what the 
2014 midterm elections mandated, one thing is for sure, The People want a 
change.

I want to encourage Speaker Boehner to take the high road and withdraw his 
name from consideration for the 2015 Speaker vote.

True leadership sometimes means taking one for the team.

True leadership means stepping aside to give others the opportunity to step
up and bring new ideas, spirit, and experiences to the table. 

True leadership, like being a good physician, is knowing how to heal wounds and 
save the patient.  Speaker Boehner's, "patients" are the conservative party, the 
House  as a whole, and the country.

It is time for a change. It is time for a new Speaker of the House.

Obama continues his goal to"Fundamentally change America"

Americans and the rest of the world are waking up to some shocking news. 
1) Emperor Obama (I refuse to disrespect the title and position of President) is again making moves to "fundamentally change America". One thing you can say about this guy, he is keeping his campaign promise. 
2) North Korean cyper-hackers have blackmailed the movie theater industry into yanking a political satire movie. Freedom of speech and expression taking another hit by communism.
Isn't it a great day in America?
America is truly "In the Pickle Barrel".
