We opened the show with a bit of national news. We played audio of Senate Majority Leader McConnel blaming the President for the frustration with Congress. He said President Trump has set timelines which don’t fit with the complex nature of democracy and legislative process. He also mentions Trump’s inexperience with how things work in Washington.
We gave a quick update on the redistricting dispute within the state. This leads us to a discussion on campaign donations and expenditures, which reveal the true nature of politics.
Dr. Terry Stoops, our educational expert from the John Locke Foundation joined us on the show. Stoops was in Pennsylvania and we compared that state to NC. We discussed the tax structure and how it affects where businesses do business.
We discussed how students are given the short end of the stick when schools focus on social topics rather than on math and science. Students are not taught economics because we are too busy teaching gender fluidity.
We played audio from an old interview with Donald Trump and Tim Russert. Russert asks about how to deal with a nuclear North Korea. Trump responds with saying he would negotiate and try to reach an understanding before pursuing military action.
