It’s Memorial Day weekend so in fine Steel on Steel tradition we’re kicking back from news in order to do a conference call focusing on mental self-defense attitudes: physical, mental, legal, financially et al. As the proverb says, a fool sees danger coming but keeps right on going, whereas a wise man takes appropriate action. We distinguish between being paranoid about the world’s dangers vs. being stupid about it. There’s a healthy, comfortable balance between the two, which can become a way of life.
John’s boralogue drums the fact that all the official Washington numbers — social security, GDP, inflation, job creation and loss –
– are all cooked and unreliable.
Much controversy this week over the approval of judges by the Senate. Republicans say it’s Democratic judicial activism to promote left-wing causes, but has anyone noticed some of the anti- Christian decisions that conservatively-appointed judges are making? Colorado talk show host Bob Enyart (www.kgov.com) has written an open letter to Dr. James Dobson, which is now making the rounds in conservative circles.
Jenny Stokes of Salt Shakers (www.saltshakers.org.au) in Australia joins us next to look at the effects of Victoria’s Racial and Religious Tolerance Act of 2001 three years after it was enacted with special emphasis placed on freedom of speech issues.
Finally we do another Steel on Steel vignette with an anonymous listener to give you an idea of the incredible load state and local fees are placing on taxpayers.
John’s boralogue examines the Culture of Death emerging in the medical profession in the light of a new case in Great Britain, where a man does not want doctors to be able to determine if food and life support should be denied to him rather than state-paid doctors.Read More
It’s generally been quiet "out there." Iran is insisting on pursuing its nuclear weapons programs. China is under pressure to stop pegging the Yuan to the dollar. Russia continues testing new missiles while everyone seems to be jockeying for position for the multiple crises to come.
Menawhile, last week biotech companies celebrated planting the billionth acre of genetically modified seed. This ignores a steady stream of emerging evidence suggesting GM foods could be causing serious problems to animals and humans. Jeffrey Smith
(www.seedsofdeception.com) returns as a guest.
If you smell the air and observe the sky, you can "feel" the perfect financial storm approaching. Last week major manufacturers General Motors and Ford saw their bonds downgraded by Standard & Poors to junk status. Then United Airlines received approval to default on its pension plan for employees. This is the tip of an emerging iceberg. Either way, Americans are being squeezed from above by taxes, inflation, fees and regulations, while promises made to them are failing. Adam Lass (www.wavestrength.com) guests.
John does an extended boralogue connecting dots from the failing income tax system, to increasing competition for limited resources to the baby boomers and euthanasia.Read More
We’ll stay largely in the economic realm for the first hour. Jim Puplava (www.financialsense.com) explains the tale of two economies we are currently experiencing: (1) paper and currency markets, where a few are becoming fabulously rich and (2) the real economy of every day affecting John and Jane Doe, where everyone is becoming poorer.
Then we’ll examine President Bush’s plan to revamp the income tax and whether it’s really part of a global harmonization of tax laws to prepare the way for a global tax. Joan Veon
In the second hour, we’ll examine the growing intolerance towards teachers and scientists who present the severe problems of Darwinian theory to their students. Key among this are those who mention intelligent design’s scientific challenge to random chance.
Roger DeHart was a high school biology teacher who was forced out of his job because he dared to present the problems with Darwinian theory as well as its assets. He joins us in the last part of the program.
John’s boralogue examines the ongoing progress of the Great Reneging as politicians trying to deny its profundity. Political panic lies just ahead.Read More
