WILLPOWER DOESN'T WORK Even though we all try to gin up our own willpower. My guest today at 2pm is Benjamin Hardy and his new book, which you buy here, Willpower Doesn't Work: Discover the Hidden Keys to Success can help you overcome those times where your own willpower fails.
THANKS TO THE COLORADO BROADCASTER'S ASSOCIATION And more importantly to Dave the Intrepid Producer. We won the Best Midday Show this past weekend!
THE TERMINATOR IS GOING TO SUE OIL AND GAS COMPANIES And he says it's for "first degree murder". In what can only be described as ridiculous grandstanding, the man who used to take a private jet to work everyday says that oil companies should be held responsible for the climate changing and THEY KNEW (or so he says) that they would cause the Earth to warm but didn't care. I wonder how Arnold got SXSW? Walked? Rode his bike? I doubt it. And I doubt he flew commercial.
ELIZABETH WARREN WON'T LET THE TRUTH GET IN THE WAY OF A GOOD STORY And now the Not-So-Native American has declined the invitation to get a DNA test to settle once and for all whether or not she is an actual Native American as she has claimed in the past. DNA testing has blown up quite a few family legends. Mine included. Here is what Senator Warren had to say,
“My mother and daddy were born and raised in Oklahoma,” Warren said. “My daddy first saw my mother when they were both teenagers. He fell in love with this tall, quiet girl who played the piano. Head over heels. But his family was bitterly opposed to their relationship because she was part Native American. They eventually eloped.”
“That’s the story that my brothers and I all learned from our mom and our dad, from our grandparents,” Warren said. “It’s a part of me and nobody’s going to take that part of me away.”
She really should let it go and accept that she was given a bill of goods that just isn't accurate.
DEAR PRESIDENT TRUMP, LET STORMY DANIELS TELL HER STORY Because the longer you drag this whole disgusting story out, the closer it's going to get to the mid term elections. Let her do her interview, let her sell her story of being a sleazy woman banging a powerful man and let us all move on. Because no one in America is the least bit surprised by the allegations, so let's just rip off the bandaid, k?
EVEN WHEN WE LET THEM LEAVE THE VA, WE STILL DON'T DO IT RIGHT Veterans Choice seemed like a great idea when it popped up. Can't get an appointment at the VA in a timely fashion? No problem, they said, we'll send you to a private physician. For guys near suicide, this has literally been a life saver. Unfortunately the government can't seem to PAY the private physicians, so it will once again mean veterans in desperate situations won't be able to get help. Kudos the Colorado Springs Gazette for this expose.
REMEMBER THE WOMAN JAILED FOR REFUSING TO TESTIFY BECAUSE OF HER FAITH Is now going to testify. Why did she change her mind? The convict's legal teams says her refusal to testify is actually hurting the appeal. Read the details here, but if you're expecting to see that she caved, you will be disappointed.
REP. KEITH ELLISON ISN'T GETTING AWAY WITH HIS RELATIONSHIP WITH FARRAKHAN And even the Washington Post has taken notice of what the man says vs. what the man does. They Fact Checked him for saying he hadn't had anything to do with Louis Farrakhan since 2006. Whoopsie. The upside for Ellison is that he now has Four Pinocchio's to play with.
I SURE HOPE THAT MARXIST CALLER FROM LAST WEEK READS THIS Because if anyone thinks socialism is a good idea, please read this short column and remind yourselves of how stupid the mere consideration really is. You're welcome.
ASIAN MEN NEED NOT APPLY Is what YouTube said when it went on a hiring spree. No white men either, thank you very much. Once again, Asian men are being punished because they are really good at something. But this time it's catching people off guard. Helen Raleigh explains it here.
I SURE HOPE CONGRESS PASSES THIS "RIGHT TO TRY" LEGISLATION My friend David, who was a long time caller to my show, wanted this legislation desperately. He had an extremely rare form of cancer (cardiac carcinoma) with no established protocol for treatment. He would have tried ANYTHING given the chance, as he knew the cancer would eventually kill him anyway. He told me once that he would do anything, even if it didn't save him because they would learn so much from his experience that it might save the next person with two kids and a wife. It's too late for David, but I know he's screaming at Congress to allow someone else like him to try. Read the bill description here.
COLLEGE STUDENTS WANT TO PROTECT FREE SPEECH AS LONG AS IT ISN'T MEAN OR SOMETHING That is my takeaway from this survey of college students on free speech. If you ever needed proof that men and women ARE DIFFERENT, look at the gender breakdowns in this thing. Men are FAR more concerned about protecting free speech than protecting feelings. But I'm sure that's because THE PATRIARCHY.
NOW HERE'S A VIDEO THAT IS SUPPOSED TO HELP ME NOT HATE DAYLIGHT SAVING TIME But newsflash, it doesn't work.
AS YOU GET YOUR BRACKETS READY Here is a fun video of March Madness moments to get your college Basketball juices flowing!
I WAS FEELING SAD BECAUSE WE DIDN'T REALLY HAVE WINTER. UNTIL THIS.
