Toward a Militarized Police State – Part I
Busy show today.
First, John’s boralogue assesses what we have learned about the media from the entire Treyvon Martin/George Zimmerman coverage.
Then we’ll open a new thread on the show beginning a series of expositions on the emerging police state. The number of people dying while being tasered is emerging as a serious concern, especially when this is touted as a “non-lethal” method of compliance enforcement. David Jaques is editor and publisher of the Roseburg Beacon (www.roseburgbeacon.com) in Roseburg, Oregon.
Then back to the Middle East again where we’re attempting to monitor weekly the pulse of this rapidly-changing geopolitical situation. David Ruben is former mayor of Shiloh, Israel, and author of “Peace for Peace, Israel and the New Middle East.” He is also founder of the Shiloh Children’s Fund, which provides support for children who have been victims of terrorism.
We’re going to pursue a second thread this summer to find out exactly what’s happening with Obamacare. This will include a round table in a future show. Today Dr. Jane Orient from the American Association of Physicians and Surgeons is back with us to provide an update.
Finally, a new EEG test was approved this week and to diagnose children who have ADHD. Barbara Dianis, MA Ed, is author of “Don’t Count Me Out.”
