NELSON COUNTY REPUBLICANS, I HOPE TO SEE YOU SATURDAY! Donna Pegago joins me at 9:35 to talk about the Nelson County Lincoln Day Dinner! I'll be the keynote speaker. Woot.
CONGRESSMAN BRETT GUTHRIE AT 9:45 The President wants to do away with the sequester cuts. What, we got tax increases and the Democrats don't want to cut spending? Who saw that coming?
OBAMACARE EXPERT ATTORNEY KENT MASTERSON BROWN AT 10. The last time he was on, people could not BELIEVE what he was saying. We're already starting to see it come true. He's back on today and will answer your questions.
SO NOW PENSION PROBLEMS ARE "MONSTROUS" I guess I should be glad the Governor is finally hip to how bad the pension problems in the Commonwealth are but I gotta tell you, I'm still a little steamed about how eloquently he lied to the people of Kentucky during the last campaign. He was either completely ignorant of the largest fiscal issue his government faces, or he lied. Which do you think it is? And why isn't any of the media asking him about that now? Here is the transcript of last night's speech, when he told legislators to raise taxes (well, he called it "tax reform") and overhaul the pension system. It's a PDF is your computer has trouble with that.
GOTTA LYNN'S GIFT CARD? You can get a refund this weekend. I've had gift cards from several places that went under and never got a dime, so hat's off to Lynn Winter for making this effort. Find the info here.
THANK YOU, FEMINISM! Have you seen these stories about Sugar Babies and their Sugar Daddies? And no, I'm not talking about the delicious chewy candies of the same name. I'm talking about young women who hook up with older men who pay their bills and buy them things for sex. Why is feminism to blame? I'll explain.
WHAT THE HECK IS HAPPENING IN JEFFERSONVILLE? I have to say, Mayor Mike Moore has certainly shaken things up. Now there is some question about what to do with property purchased by the city for a canal project that is going nowhere. Do they sell it or lease it to a museum I'm guessing has very little traffic now? Can someone answer these questions for me?
OBAMACARE VS. YOUR GROCERY BILL A listener mentioned this last week and I couldn't find anything about it, but lo and behold here it is. Your grocery bill is now going up (along with everything else in your life) because of Obamacare if the FDA has it's way with grocery stores. Is there anything that the government can't find a way to jack the cost up of? Seriously.
