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.

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.

The Tone of Timber

I have solved the great Zen riddle; if a tree falls in the forest and no one hears it, did the tree really fall?  The answer is, if the tree didn’t fall on me, I don’t care.

That, I think, is the answer that works in the world that we inhabit.  How else do we make it through all of the incredible ugliness of what is all around us and not snap our collective noggins?  How do we sit through the recitation of horrors in the Charles Taylor trial?  How do we absorb the slaughter by Assad’s regime in Syria, as they actually make a game out of following the UN observers and popping off a fresh group of their own people as soon as the UN guys move to the next village?  The answer again…if the tree didn’t fall on me, I don’t care.  Translation:  If the mayor of my town is not setting up the Chamber of Commerce on the roof tops of shops along Main street, and arming them with sniper rifles, or – - if the Governor of New Jersey is not chopping hands off and collecting little kids to be in his revolutionary army, I’m not effected.

We shake our heads and sigh in disbelief, as we go back to waxing our cars and trimming the bushes.  Me?  I give some money to Amnesty International.  I give some money to the International Red Cross.  Man, I even bought some mosquito nets so the African kids don’t all die so fast from Malaria.  Yeah.  I’m one of the good guys.  Of course, it takes me about 17 seconds to ‘internet’ my part and then I get back to the important stuff, like the cars and lawn.  But, hey… power to the people, I say!  I will strike my thunderous blows to evil and tyranny everywhere!

To be fair, denial is salvation.  Should we all be absorbed in the misery that is painting most of the 3rd World, we would shrivel and wilt like the daisies we are- – having been born here in the Civilized West.  We are not made of the same stuff…at least not that we are aware of.  Yeah, somewhere deep in our darkest recesses we feel it…that black, ugly sense that if pushed, we could turn into a Charles Taylor, but we spend every minute of every day – according to Freud at least – pushing that down, as we attempt to fit into some societal model.  I guess that’s best, so remember, if you actually do hear the tree fall, pretend it was thunder or God’s bowling ball and get out of the way!

Kill-adelphia

It’s time to call in the National Guard to Philadelphia.

Out of the nation’s 10 largest cities, Philadelphia’s homicide rate is the worst. Last year ended with 324 homicides, up from 306 in 2010, and as of January of this year, 34 murders and counting.

Philadelphia’s mayor has made it clear the city is waging an all-out war against violent criminals.
“If you want to act like an idiot, if you want to be an a-hole, if you want to be a low-life in this town, we will track you down like the dog that you are.  At the news conference announcing the measures, Mayor Nutter put it this way: “To every criminal out there: I just put a $20,000 bounty on your head.” He raised some eyebrows last summer when he took to the pulpit to call out the predominantly black youths involved in the attacks:

“You damage yourself, you damage another person, you damage your peers, and quite honestly, you damage your own race,” said Nutter, who is black and has two children, and is the only way he could get away with making such an inflammatory statement.  Blacks make up nearly 84% of the homicide victims, according to police data.

We’re blue in the face from calling on people of all stripes to take responsibility for their children, stop letting them run in packs; calling on education and more programs focused on gang mentality, calling for more positive social outlets, and locating absentee fathers.  Obviously none of that is working because none of that is a reality.  What is real is Northeast Philadelphia where, unless you are armed, you can’t even cross the street, much less stop at a traffic light without being killed for your pizza or your car.  It doesn’t matter which, as the ultra violent street crime is there simply to show who’s in control of the streets.

Instead of spending lives and money in Libya, Syria, and Afghanistan, we need clean up our own messes, because otherwise this is only going to turn even more Mad Max and start spreading to , gasp, the suburbs!   Mayor Nutter, I suggest you phone up that urban peacekeeper, Marshall Law, and call the national guard into our own war zone here in Philadelphia.

LK’s “AM 970 The Apple” PodKast-The 10/31/11 Show

LK’s got what’s been variously described as a character flaw, a gift, a pathology, a knack, or simply a compulsion, which is to incessantly and possibly productively connect dots that lead him to be something of an early warning system, which both benefits those around him AND drives them crazy, and maybe can be helpful to you.

Tonight he turned his gaze to OWS, which he compares to a TV channel programed by random hackers (WOWS), how Greece is not just Europe’s, but our very own canary in a coal mine, as well gambling in Florida with what he posits as the hush hush approval of the Mega-Church types.

Not to mention the guy who firebombed the Taco Bell because his chalupa didn’t haven’t enough meat, the Tobin Tax, and aspirin negating the need for any additional health care whatsoever.

Enjoy.
