The Butler

The Butler raised, for me, the biggest issues there are.  Forget, for a moment, how you feel about the Obama presidency if you want to delve into the bigger picture:
 
a.  how do we as individuals and societies deal with the reality that at least 50% and perhaps as much as 95% of our lives are predetermined by where we’re born and who we’re born to?
b.  how unenlightened we must be considering what passes for enlightened. 
c.  how uncivilized we must be considering what passes for civilized. 
d.  on a more domestic, here and now front, how the civil rights progress that’s been made over the last 50 years is being eaten away at, due, in large part, to the economic downturn. 

Job Fumblers, and Anarchy On the Horizon-7/6/12 “WOR710.com” PodKast

It’s another top 10 nationally ranked show out of 90+, and #2 out of the many shows emanating from an internet platform.  Thanks for listening and spreading the word.

Hour 1
Neither LK nor his listeners were surprised by today’s job numbers. LK begins a narrative with the numbers and winds up ruminating on the national psyche.

Listen

Hour 2
The states are flexing their sovereign muscles in ways that may be a prelude to some fundamental shifts in how we live and who we answer to . De jure takes a back seat to de facto, if you catch LK’s Latin..

No Dinner vs. Celebrity Dinners-6/22/12 “WOR710.com” PodKast

Hour 1-LK begins the hour by noting that Greeks are going hungry, and ends the hour by noting that the Germans  believe they’re the ones who’ve been doing the feeding, but are now feeling increasingly resentful about it.

Hour 2-Presidential candidates offering dinners with either celebs, or with buffoons who lucked into being tycoons, is what passes for political persuasion these days. The meals are making LK nauseous. And now Obama’s campaign wants your wedding guests to contribute to his campaign rather than kick-start your own new life.

Hour2-Listen

editor’s note: We’d like to thank you, the listeners, for vaulting LK’s show into the top 10 out of 90+ national shows that are available on an internet platform, as measured by Talk Stream Live.  Thursday’s show (6/21/12) reached #4, and was #1 among all the shows that emanate from internet only platforms. We’re very grateful that you’re listening, and appreciate your spreading the word wherever and whenever possible.  Enjoy.

24/7/365 World Needs A 24/7/365 Prez-6/19/12 “WOR710.com” PodKast

editor’s note: We’d like to thank you, the listeners, for vaulting LK’s show into the top 10 out of 90+ national shows that are available on an internet platform, as measured by Talk Stream Live.  We’re very grateful for your listenership, and appreciate your spreading the word wherever and whenever possible.  Enjoy.

Hour 1-If you run for the presidency, you can’t just walk once you’re sworn in. Vacations, friend’s daughter’s weddings, and shopping for lingerie need to be sacrificed. LK points out that it’s a 24/7/365 world, and we need 24/7/365 leaders.

Hour 2-LK has repeatedly stated that warfare will be unrecognizable if you picture it as millions of men in one uniform fighting millions of men in another. He’s found the best example yet of war taking place on an economic platform; no blood, no bombs, just a canceled insurance policy.

Expletive Deleted-6/7/12 “WOR710.com” PodKast

Hour 1-Tonight’s show might as well be titled “Expletive Deleted”. LK is steamed. Students pay banks 3 to 10 times the interest rate that banks themselves pay when they borrow from the Fed.

Hour 2-A homeless girl from NC gets into Harvard. LK is moved, and temporarily, his anger is quelled. The Democrats punish candor, and “Expletive Deleted” returns.

Hour 1-Listen

Here Comes Obama’s Nervous Breakdown

IMHO: Obama will have a nervous breakdown if he has to president (a new verb) for another 4 years.  No joke.  We may not learn about it until after he leaves office in 2016 (should he win in November), but the man looks and sounds psychologically run down; like he’s running for re-election for reasons he himself doesn’t understand and/or accept.

To be continued…

Opportunity Knocks-5/30/12 “WOR710.com” PodKast

LK wants to thank his growing number of listeners for making last night’s show the #11 most listened to show via the internet nationally out of 90+ shows, according to Talk Stream Live.

Hour 1-LK laments the paucity of information one can rely on, then concludes that it wouldn’t be a bad thing if we all paid greater attention to, and distilled what we could, from the media maelstrom.

Hour 2-With uncharacteristic optimism, LK posits that if Americans can hunker down, agree to disagree, and maintain a minimum standard of living and education for all of its citizens, we might emerge on top of the global heap.

Facebook Cry Babies-5/23/12 “WOR710.com” PodKast

Hour 1-Cry babies are suing Facebook because they, as investors, didn’t do their due diligence.  LK notes that economic numbers that look good on the surface aren’t as thrilling without their make-up.

Hour 2-The Prez had smaller margins of victory than Mitt did in both of yesterday’s primaries.  And Vice President Everyman is polling even less favorably Darth Cheney did.

Hour 1-Listen

Hour2-Listen

Cory Booker for President-5/21/12 “WOR710.com” PodKast

Hour 1-Cory Booker for President.  LK understands (but wishes he didn’t) why the Democrats are stifling candor wherever it rears its beautiful head.  Senator Mike Lee (R) should have imposed a bit more fiscal discipline on himself.

Hour 2-An nation’s ally is no longer one that shares essential values.  In 2012, an ally is whoever gets paid the most, and the duration of the ally’s loyalty is the duration of the payment flow.

Hour 1

Hour 2

LK’s “WOR710.com” PodKast-The 5/14/12 Show

Hour 1

The Eurozone debacle is hitting all of us in the wallet big time. LK strongly suggests that we exorcize our inner ostrich.

Hour 2

LK believes that the President’s transparent insincerity just bit him in his poll numbers. Mitt still doesn’t realize that no one forgets high school lowlights.
