In Case You Missed It… Tuesday, August 24th

Here’s what you missed today on the Jay Mcfarland show.

After a marathon television watching weekend, Jay reminds us of the prohibition times and its similarities to what is going on in our country today. When are we going to learn from lessons of the past? When are we going to stop punishing people for their potential choices and taking away rights because of what they might do? Jay takes your calls and discusses why we should be free to choose whether we drink alcohol or smoke marijuana.

Is standing up for what you think is right more important than your child’s education? This week a middle school student was given in-school suspension after he refused to cut his hair according to the school’s dress code. Jay spoke with Keith Fail’s stepfather about why they are choosing to fight this rule. They think that he should be able to do what he wants with his hair, but Jay and many of you disagreed.

Congressman Ron Paul is speaking out about the mosque being built near Ground Zero in New York City. He is strongly condemning his fellow conservatives for opposing the proposed Islamic Community Center. “The rights of minorities must be protected even when it’s unpopular.”

    Don’t you understand? There’s a continued push for a reminder of the hysteria caused on 9/11. There’s this mosque issue (which I believe is a political diversion, so that Obama can look liberal for once), most likely a totally contrived controversy. And then there’s Glenn Beck and his disgusting 9-12 movement, so that we “all remember how we felt on that day.” The neocons want 9/11 to be the main issue again going into the elections, so there’s justification to continue this empire, and less attention paid to downsizing DC.
