Back from a productive weekend, Bishop On Air on 970 WMAY, The News and Talk of Springfield! Today we'll talks the Second Amendment, Obamacare deadline, framing Crimea and even some city hall politics. That's all ahead with Bishop On Air from 10 to noon only on 970 WMAY!
Right to Bear Arms
Over the weekend Bishop grabbed some interviews with Mary Shepard and Valinda Rowe for the Gun-Free Zone Documentary. Tune in to hear parts of those interviews with two women who have been instrumental in securing Illinoisans right to keep and bear arms. Plus we'll talk about Concealed Carry so far and what needs to be changed about Illinois' gun laws.
If there's time, we'll also criticize Obamacare on the day hundreds of millions of Americans are being forced into the private insurance marketplace. How's that Obamacare website working out? Also, we'll hear a bit of a parody about the new law forcing people to purchase a private product simply for breathing.
News outlets in this country and elsewhere in the western world are framing the annexation of Crimea to Russia in a way that hints at Russian aggression. Is that really the case? We'll read from a fascinating article written by Paul Craig Roberts about how mainstream media outlets are providing only part of the story and what kinds of devastating consequences there are if an unthinking public falls in line.
More shots are being fired at city hall as Aldermen react to comments about Union money for city officials' campaigns. Alderman Joe McMenamin leveled the first attack with Bishop On Air last week saying that other aldermen and Mayor Mike Houston have conflicts of interest in taking union money then turning around and voting in favor of union contracts that have pay raises. This week, Alderman Cory Jobe responded to say it's no surprise McMenamin can't get anything done. Why, because he's pointing out the conflict of interest? We'll take your calls on the issue today with Bishop On Air!
