LK’s “WOR710.com” PodKast-The 5/7/12 Show

Hour 1

Elections in Europe this past weekend will have a massive effect on our lives here at home.   LK posits that the world may well be too interconnected.

Listen

Hour 2

Cell phones and their radiation are a thorn in LK’s side, or more specifically, in the blood/brain barrier within his noggin.  And Ted Nugent should stick to Cat Scratch Fever, rather than the dog eat dog world of politics.

LK’s “AM 970 The Apple” PodKast-The 12/5/11 Show

LK is sick and tired of the likes of Herman Cain, Eliot Spitzer, Mark Sanford, and John Edwards not vetting themselves prior to abusing our precious time and resources before being found out.  He proposes the CVC, or Citizen’s Vetting Committee, which will take 10% of all campaign donations and use it to dig up the dirt before we get buried in it.

LK posits that it’s only a matter of time before corruption goes inter-galactic, as it’s pretty much saturated this globe of ours, while musing on the co-existence of decadent gourmet food markets and an increasing number of kids needing the safety net of school lunches.

The Eurozone’s gone fascist; ain’t no other way to describe it.

Dr. John is nothing if not provocative, and LK delivers some sobering news about the Japanese and their nuclear denial.

A jolly good time was had by all.

Euro-Mess

The Germans are pissed. Some of their taxpayer dollars are probably going to be used to  bail out the Greeks, too many of whom buy 63″ plasmas before they pay their rent, and, in fact, expect the government to buy the big screens for them. So Chancellor Merkel has her hands full convincing the German legislature to climb aboard the bailout bandwagon.

It doesn’t help the cause of European unity and harmony that she’s speaking of the Greeks as if they were irresponsible children, but that may be the necessary posture she’s got to take to get her fellow citizens to begrudgingly share the risk and burden of lending money to a nation of people who aren’t good at paying loans back.

Making things even more difficult are the Greeks themselves, who have become so used to excessive vacation time, sumptuous pensions, and all sorts of other government goodies that, in protest, they’re currently shutting down airports, schools, hospitals and other vital public services to the point that the country’s paralyzed, which indicates they’re not having an easy time accepting the austerity measures required to slowly but surely climb out of their pit of debt.

Not exactly confidence inspiring to potential lenders, which is why the bailout that seems to be announced daily still hasn’t formally come to pass.

And waiting in the wings is Spain.  The government officials there are taking great pains to remind the world, and the Eurozone in particular, that their problems are nowhere near as severe as the Greeks, in the hope that no one will notice that their economic house has also crossed the border into the land of disorder.

This doesn’t bode well, economically or politically.  The delusions that national mind sets can be changed overnight (a year or two, historically speaking, is overnight) and that one nation’s citizenry won’t resent another nation’s citizenry for behaving less responsibly than they themselves have behaved, won’t last long.

The dissolution of the Euro is the least of their, and our worries.

And we’re all reminded that grown-ups, like kids, have an aversion to medicine that tastes bad.
