About four months ago, Glenn Beck began a new series of one-on-one in depth interviews that he releases on Saturdays. They’re often over an hour and you really get far more than you’d ever get on a national news network. They are also released on YouTube later in the week in video format.

I’ve been quite impressed with the series as several of his guests have been on the other side of the political spectrum. The interviews are usually really top notch. I know a lot of people think that Beck is a clown, but I’ve followed the guy for years. In my opinion, he’s one of the better interviewers I’ve ever seen and he’s no idiot.

He recently had on Dr. Carol Swain. I had not heard of her before, but she has an incredible story.

Glenn sits down to have a conversation with Dr. Carol Swain, who serves as a conservative television analyst and a Professor of Law at Vanderbilt University. They talk about her path from a high school dropout and teenage mother to becoming a renowned University professor and public intellectual. They also discuss Dr. Swain’s passion for empowering others to raise their voices up in the public square while holding current politicians accountable in today’s social and political climate.

My team won last night. I can prove it. The box score showed the St. Louis Blues beating the Florida Panthers 3-2. You think I seriously wasted my time watching Trump or the socialist nut from Atlanta? If you’re going to waste time in front of the television rooting for your tribe, choose sports over our current national political “leaders.” It’s far more rewarding.

Speaking of rewarding, can AOC get a high five?

‘Tis the season. And no this won’t be a Merry Christmas post.

You see, this is the time of year where I receive a letter from my health insurance company that says, hey, sucks to be you because you’re getting an increase.

This is the 6th straight year I’ve received one of these letters. When you add all the math up, I’ve seen an 182% increase in my policy since I had the policy written in 2012. This year also was the worst with a $99.18 per month increase.

I was essentially just told that I have to lose an additional $1,188.60 out of my family budget for the next year and beyond.

That’s $1200 I can’t save.

That’s $1200 I can’t spend.

That’s $1200 I can’t invest.

That’s $1200 I could put in my son or daughter’s trust.

If you look at the increase since 2012, I’ve effectively lost $3,799.08 total.

Remember folks, we were promised that this would be great for families and young people by losers like Claire McCaskill.

Kind of a funny way to define good, isn’t it? Actually, I think you’d have to be mentally retarded to define this as good.

I truthfully don’t know what the answer is, but I know what we’re doing as a nation in this area isn’t doing anyone any good. I shudder to think what the letter brings next year, because honestly, this is starting to get a little painful.
