There's a ton of stuff to cover with Saturday Session, and only four hours to do it. Listen live from 3 to 7p CST. Click "Listen Live"
It works! Let's make it work again!
We'll open to talk about the power of the people. When a multitude of people get together for a common cause they can change the world--or at least the direction the world is headed. This is evident with a recent proposal from "child labor" advocates that would have barred families having their children working on family farms as is the case in every small town around central Illinois, the Midwest and all of America.
Under pressure from farm groups and lawmakers from rural states, the Labor Department said it is withdrawing proposed rules that would ban children younger than 16 from using most power- driven farm equipment, including tractors. The rules also would prevent those younger than 18 from working in feed lots, grain silos and stockyards. - AP via ABC
The regulation would have barred farm kids from working on the farm family farms, an ageless tradition and an essential imperative. What else would kids do in their free time? Play video games and eat fast food?
Another example where the people's power is strong is the recent defeat of SOPA/PIPA. Well, the "rulers" are trying to get their spy-on-you-provisions passed with CISPA bill. Even Microsoft is not supporting the bill. The scary part is, the House passed it and now it heads to the Senate. Time to get out the calls!
Also, how could we not forget to discuss the "anniversary" of the assassination of Osama bin Laden. A federal judge recently said the release of those pictures of a dead bin Laden would be a national security concern. What's the real national security threat if the photos do come out?
A.D. Carson will join Saturday Session to talk about his event scheduled for tonight called "The City" where Mr. Carson hopes to raise money to start up a non-profit called Emancipated Mindstate. We'll talk about the event, the non-profit and more. That's at around 3:30.
Then, we'll be joined by several different guests to talk Illinois' economy, including Micheal Shedlock, also known as Mish. We expect Mish on at 4 to talk about the problems facing Illinois' finances and his ideas for fixing them.
At 5, we'll go even deeper with Ted Debrowski from the Illinois Policy Institute to talk the Amazon Tax in Illinois, the backlog of bills, and the diagnosis of the problem, and discuss remedies.
It's been over a year since the nuclear site Fukushima Daiichi was rocked by earthquakes, drowned by tsunami and meltdown from no power. We'll talk the trajectory of nuclear power in the US with Michael J. Keegan from the Coalition for a Nuclear Free Great Lakes. Is it time to decommission the aging nuclear generators and not grant life-extensions? We'll answer that question tonight with Mr. Keegan. That's at 6p. Don't miss it!

News on the March
The ATF found their own guns in Mexico ... imagine that! Hearing a news story earlier this week made me want to gag. It was pure propaganda and anyone who knew of Fast and Furious saw right through that story. Are you one who see through the BS? Also, we'll talk about what seems to be somekind of false-flag terror planning for the upcoming NATO Summit in Chicago next month. And, we'll see what's up with the latest Bilderberg news.
