Weekdays at 9am on 92.3 KTAR

Shut 'er down for good! Please!

My brother from another mother, John Stossel hit the nail on the head Wednesday.

Not only am I not panicked at the thought of another week of "Government Shutdown," I admit to being enthusiastically in favor of it. Permanently. As a matter of fact, as Stossel points out, the longer we go without these "essential Government services" the more people will come around to our way of thinking and ask, "Why do we need them at all?"

And THAT is what politicians of BOTH parties fear the most: a day when the American public decides we don't need, want and won't pay for Government intrusion, roadblocks and mothering anymore.

Sequestration, shutdown, debt ceiling. So while the ruling political class has $millions of reasons to try and scare us into believing how catastrophic these things are and actively plots to make visible and painful cuts in an effort to find our weakness, stand strong America and face down these political terrorists.

I, for one, do not respond to threats from Government and consider the past week one of the greatest in American history. Let's go for two weeks!

About the Author

I may not be a native, but I've been in Arizona long enough to forget what it's like back East. I moved to Tucson in the 5th grade where I graduated high school and attended the UofA. The radio bug hit me early and I was a DJ at the age of 17 in Tucson. Besides being on-air at times, my main career focus has been the behind-the-scenes programming of radio stations. I have an extensive background in music radio, in addition to working at and/or running some of the biggest and most influential radio stations in America. My radio career took me to Los Angeles, San Diego and then back to Phoenix. The chance to be back on-air, and to do it at 92.3 KTAR, was too good to pass upů so here we are! Weekends are usually reserved for racing as I own and drive my own dirt track Sprint Car all over the country. I am unmarried (never have been), childless (that I'm aware of) and don't even have any pets at this point. I do own 1 plant but the fact it has survived this long without watering leads me to believe it may be plastic. I love what I do and enjoy hosting a talk radio show for people who don't like "talk radio".
