Class on Thursday (Vice Friday Now) at NoBullU on WEBY

UPDATE II: For a primer on oil reserves, click here.

UPDATE: As discussed during the program, click here for the names of the individials who die in the oil rig explosion.

Listen to the voice of wisdom and reason in a wilderness of partisan rhetoric -- No political insanity, no conservative hypocrisy, no liberal foolishness -- Just straight talk, straight at you, and that’s no bull!!

NoBullU will broadcast Thursday from 4:05 to 6:00 p.m. at 1330 AM WEBY and on line, courtesy of Cyber Smart Computers.


Local and regional: no booze on the beach, is it deja prohibition?; the local bad boy Commissioner and the pretty dead blonde; robotix coming to a mailbox near you; Pace High School H. Frank Lay Stadium or not; the teachers sue, part II; are Morning Mike and Bobby sexists or a chauvinists; and

Nation and international: the Party Purge; told ya so re the health care lawsuit; Red Families v. Blue Families; who you callin a Neanderthal; the death of fairy tale government budgets and spending; know your terrorist; and oil spill fallout to date: anxiety, paranoia, ambulance chasing and political grandstanding, and Republi-CON 'less government' hypocrisy; as ye sow, so shall ye reap; would $500k have saved $1.6B?; why not bomb the spill? and other extreme solutions.

But I'll discuss anything. (Disclaimer: the host reserves the right to end any discussion and hang up on you.)

So tune-in, call-in, but only if you can handle some ass kickin' discussion of politics and current events!

The Death of Fairy Tale Government Budgets and Spending

UPDATE: More comparisons. Read The New York Times, In Greek Debt Crisis, Some See Parallels to U.S.

The graph show that the government deficit situation is worse in the U.S.

"Sitting in America, it’s hard to grasp the importance of the British elections and the Greek riots. Nothing to do with us, right? Well, I’d pay attention to the drama playing out here. It may be coming to a theater near you." Read The New York Times, Root Canal Politics.

Without spending cuts and tax increases, this fairy tale will have an unhappy ending.

Who Wants to Be A Terrorist

When it comes to terrorism, some think that ignorance is bliss. Not true:

"So it is said that if you know your enemies and know yourself, you can win a hundred battles without a single loss.
If you only know yourself, but not your opponent, you may win or may lose.
If you know neither yourself nor your enemy, you will always endanger yourself.

"The Times Square bomb suspect didn't create his "jihadist ideology" out of thin air." Read The New York Times, The Making of a Terrorist.
