Coming up with Bishop On Air: We'll talk about where the government is failing on children safety and infrastructure and we'll also get into drones and the oversight for the NSA--that's all ahead with Bishop from 10 to noon CST on 970 WMAY, The News and Talk of Springfield.
A recent report out states that Illinois' bridges are increasingly receiving poor ratings. It's quite alarming when you think about it. Why the disrepair? Who is falling asleep on the job? Meanwhile, stories about juveniles being abused in prisons by inmates and guards alike seems to be just the tip of the iceberg as yet another example of government failing. Now there's a report that a backlog of child abuse investigations through the state is the biggest it's been in years. Are we getting what we're paying for?
It seems that there is just a non-stop flow of info concerning Americans living obliviously in a police state. First it's "for 3 months, Verizon has been giving records to the government." That was quickly revealed to be much longer and it wasn't just Verizon, it was virtually all communications being seized. Now it's being revealed that drones have been used to watch Americans ... but don't worry, because the government is working on rules to dictate what they can do.
Let's pool our resources and brainstorm on how we can reverse these alarming trends. Is it too late to turn tyranny around? Sound off with Bishop On Air from 10 to noon on 970 WMAY, The News and Talk of Springfield. Listen live and call 217-629-7970, email, Tweet or Facebook.
