Back from the weekend, Greg Bishop hosts Bishop On Air from 10 to noon on 970 WMAY, The News and Talk of Springfield. Tune in for a talk about Martin Luther King Jr., how President Obama's surveillance proposals don't change anything and a discussion about how much servers should make in a wage versus tips. That's all ahead with Bishop On Air!
We're expected to be joined by Congressman Rodney Davis in studio at the top of the show to talk about the latest happenings in congress and elsewhere. We'll talk about the NSA, the recently passed trillion dollar budget and more! Don't miss out on that conversation with Congressman Rodney Davis on 970 WMAY, The News and Talk of Springfield!
Martin Luther King Jr.'s day is today, but all that means to a lot of businesses around town is "it's time for a sale!" We'll get into King's legacy and why it's important to remember what he truly stood for and not just see his legacy from the surface. We'll go over some quotes that are less known, and talk about the FBI's monitoring of the civil rights leader.
Speaking of monitoring Americans' activities, we'll talk about the President's plan to "curb" spying from the NSA. We'll also get into a Supreme Court case in which the question of police searching cell phones without a warrant is being raised. Plus, we'll discuss other issues of right where the press is concerned! Don't miss this important review of the latest concerning your rights to a free press, and your rights to being secure from unreasonable search and seizure.
Tip for tat
The issue of minimum wage is going to be a huge topic for the coming campaign year, and yes, we'll have to get into the debate today. At issue this time is whether or not a food server, someone who works at a sit-down restaurant, should get an increase in their minimum wage. It's a heated topic with all kinds of opinions from all sides. We'll get your comments on the air today!
