Removing Fuel from a Dying Fire

05/31/2008

At a time when energy is becoming more and more expensive, congress is considering legislation designed to make it even more expensive. This week the Warner-Liebermann bill is being debated in the Senate, a proposal to begin a system of caps and credits to curb CO2 emissions, which is nothing more than another tax on top of an already teetery economy. The rising prices of fuel are already reducing CO2 emissions.

Although coverage of the cyclone aftermath in Myanmar (Burma) has dropped off the media’s radar, the situation is still desperate. Myanmar’s military government is trying to prevent aid from getting to Karen Christians and missionaries are forced to mule supplies and relief into the country going around road blocks and checkpoints. Jim Jacobson from Christian Freedom International (www.christianfreedom.org) joins us on the program. This is an area where you can directly help.

Alfred L. McMichael was the first African-American in the Marine Corps to achieve the rank of Sergeant Major and author of “Leadership: Achieving Life-Changing Success from Within.” He describes his philosophy of building character.

John’s boralogue is an update on the perfect financial storm which, if it stays on schedule, will break over the country around the beginning of 2009. Our politicians will determine whether this is going to be just a bad recession or a depression. In the second hour of the show he responds to emails from listeners regarding earlier programs.
