|Rosa Koire, author of "Behind the Green Mask: UN Agenda 21"|
Then at 4 we'll talk the Sustainable Design Assessment Team in Springfield with Rosa Koire, author of Behind the Green Mask: UN Agenda 21. It's been over six months since we've last talked with Ms. Koire. Check out that interview from last year here. Since then, there's been a lot of action with Sustainability in Springfield.
May of last year saw a visit from a team of central planners who came to Springfield to "hear from the public" and provide recommendations. The actual document was released in November.
We'll review the plan released by the SDAT, how it fits into UN Agenda 21 and what we should be doing to ensuring that we don't let outside influence interfere with the central Illinois' self-determination. We'll also talk about Smart Growth, Smart Meters, and even Springfield wanting to buck the IECC! Don't miss out on this very compelling conversation with Rosa Koire at 4p CST.
Gun Control All Around
In the 5 o'clock hour, we'll flesh out the debate over guns and focus on how various states and the federal government is trying to infringe on your rights to keep and bear arms. But the battle to secure those rights continues. Even here in Springfield, there'll be a hearing that could turn into precedent setting case about Illinois' ban on concealed carry in light of the recent appeals court ruling. Read about that case here. We'll cover the gun debate from every angel with Saturday Session. Don't miss it.
Then if there's time, we'll talk about the early tests of psychiatric drugs and bioweapons on US soldiers and how this year will see a landmark case. You can read a fascinating article about those tests in New Yorker article titled "Operation Delirium." We'll get to the juicy bits of the article and talk about how those tests from decades ago impacts us today.
