Today on Saturday Session, back live after running the Lincoln Presidential Half Marathon to talk about local accountability, Gun-Free Zone, the markets and Bitcoin plus News on the March. Listen live from 3 to 7p CST on 970 WMAY, The News and Talk of Springfield.
Several stories involve the Sangamon County State's Attorney's office "reviewing" some cases for possible criminal charges. There's the tree trimming incident, where a City Water Light and Power ratepayer saw three CWLP employees using city equipment on city time to cut down a tree on private property. After the long saga, the information is now being forwarded to the State's Attorney's office. We'll get more into the story right at the front end of Saturday Session.
Another local story where reports were forwarded to the State's Attorney's office have to do with confidential student test data being "leaked" to the press. We'll hash out the details of that story and talk about the pre-election politics and how this is just on the surface of what has recently transpired on the Springfield school board.
The Latest with GOA
At 4p we'll be joined by Larry Pratt from Gun Owners of America. It's been a few weeks since Larry has joined the show, but with the national conversation over the second amendment being hijacked by victims family members and talking heads who think the hunting and skeet shooting is why our founders wanted us to have guns, we'll get to the bottom of what this whole mess is about. We'll also get Larry's take on what kind of conceal carry bill should pass the Illinois General Assembly.
The stock market had a huge week, even if there were some down numbers there at the tale end. What was that all about? We'll get the latest analysis with Michael Schussele. Also, we'll talk about what's going on with Bitcoin--is it really a viable alternative to taking part in the central banking system?
We'll also delve into the comment "Taxation is slavery." With the deadline to file taxes Monday, we'll review a Facebook conversation found here. We'll also talk about some of the ways that those who were so inclined could protest the government through tax protestation. Don't miss this important conversation!
Then, we'll finish up the show with News on the March to cover the news that didn't get talked about nearly enough. Strap yourself in for another jam packed Saturday Session with Bishop from 3 to 7p CST on 970 WMAY, The News and Talk of Springfield. Wanna chime in? Call live during the show at 217-629-7970.
