Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe to assure the survival and the success of liberty - John F. Kennedy


[COMMENT]On this eve of Memorial Day, with our minds on Americans who gave their lives for our freedom, a scandal. More people died because of decisions that this President made, or didn't make or he didn't know about or that nobody told him to make or not to make. I mean you have got to be kidding me. Fast and Furious, people died, Benghazi, people died and now we are hearing 40 to a 100 people may have died because they could not get into the VA to get treated. The President gets up there and says "When we find out what happen people will be held accountable". When we find out? He checks off the box of good intentions and he's done. I heard today that he knew about this a year or two ago. He also campaigned on fixing the VA. This is a total disgrace. We have two more years with this guy? Will more people die? I know this sounds like hyperbole but these things are really happening and he's getting a pass on everything. Last year Ed Anser and Mike Ferrell said they 'Don't Want to Feel Anti-Black' so they stay silent, cowards! Is that what is still going on here? Now we have Senator Jay Rockefeller this week say if you don't agree with the president you must be a racist. I have never seen anything like this in my life. I am so tired of people using race. I'm a conservative and would love to see Ben Carson and Alan West running this country. They are both black men for those of you in Rio Linda, CA. 

I can only imagine how this presidency will be studied over the following years and all the scores of books that will be written and Obama's legacy will end up non existent. But that doesn't help us now. This is like watching a train wreck in slow motion. Think back to a year ago. I woke up everyday to some new outrage in the White House and it's a year later and it just keeps getting worse. Tomorrow will be another thing and another and another. Two more years, my god.

'I've Enjoyed Every Minute Of It': Carl Kasell On His 60 Years In Radio

A frequent guest on many many shows is a man that I think might be one of the most articulate and intelligent people we have in this country. Victor Davis Hanson is an American military historian, columnist, former classics professor, and scholar of ancient warfare. He has been a commentator on modern warfare and contemporary politics for National Review and other media outlets. He lives up in Central California and owns a huge piece of property. He bikes, and recently he injured himself and got his eyes opened about our healthcare system. This is the best article of the week.

The most heard guest this week was Dr. Ben Carson. He was on almost everyone's show. He's a smart guy and has a lot of the right answers. He seems a little meek but I like him and his viewpoints. He was on Glenn Beck and Glenn mentioned that there is bible scripture at the top of the page in every chapter of his new book. Glenn said "You gotta really have balls to do that with the PC police coming after everyone these days". It will be interesting to see what happens and if he runs for President.

I somehow missed this. Beginning Saturday, May 10th, "The Jesse Lee Peterson Radio Show" will begin airing live on AM 870-KRLA every Saturday 2-3 p.m. PT / 5-6 p.m. ET. The Saturday show is an exciting addition to the national daily 3 hour program. The program will also be streamed live on KRLA. I have heard Jesse on many shows for years. This man has more sense and a drive to deliver it than most people. Just a wonderful message he brings. I'm sure this show will be a success.

I'm not really sure what exactly radio.com is but it's owned by CBS. They have a new text interview (probably from a phone call) on their page with Jimmy Page from Led Zeppelin that is just out of this world great. Page talks about archiving and remastering all of the Zeppelin albums. I grew up with Zeppelin and this is just an amazing interview.

[PODCASTS]I first heard Sean Cole sitting in for the host on a show called "The Story" on public radio. He is a great interviewer and has an interesting voice. I saw that he was doing an interview on a show called "Tape" on the digital audio service called Stitcher. You will be hearing his name in the future, I bet on it.
