It's Walker Wednesday with Walker Stapleton!

THIS WEEK WE'VE GOT QUITE A FEW CANDIDATES FOR GOVERNOR And Walker Stapleton is up today at 2.  We're talking about all the issues.


MILLENIALS, I HAVE BAD NEWS, JOB HOPPING DOES HURT YOU I've been told by numerous business "experts" that millenials have changed the perception of job hopping because they do it so much.  Not so says a recent study which showed that if someone were laid off, fired or quit a job within the first 15 months they were 43% less hireable when they applied at their next job.  They were half as likely to get a second interview.  Sorry millenials, but you are going to have to learn to play by the rules the rest of us have played by for a long, long time.


I KNOW THIS IS  NATURAL DISASTER, BUT THESE LAVA FLOWS ARE BEAUTIFUL

CAN WE JUST WAIT 40 WEEKS ALREADY?  You've seen the super fancy 3D sonograms women get when they are pregnant?  They are better than the grainy image of the NORMAL sonogram, although I honestly think the babies look weird because they are all smushed.  Now you can go ONE STEP FURTHER and get an actual 3D Printed model of your baby in utero.  Stop it people.  Just stop it.  What's next?  Do we install a window in the mother's belly so we can watch the whole thing throughout?  (note to self, figure out a way to do this so I can make a lot of money)


THE NFL TAKES A STAND.  FINALLY. And they have decided to penalize any player who kneels for the National Anthem while also allowing those who don't wish to stand to stay in the locker room.  Does this even matter to those of you who have found other things to do?   


ANDREW MCCARTHY LAYS OUT THE SHIFTING STORIES OF THE RUSSIA ORIGIN TIMELINE This is something we don't really know the truth about, and I feel that with great conviction.  If we did, the story wouldn't keep changing, and yet, it does.  National Review's Andrew McCarthy lays it out very convincingly and it's hard to not end up with the conclusion that the Obama Administration started this whole thing on no evidence and a still-unproven dossier.  That's big news.  


THIS IS THE BEST STORY ON THE VALUE OF WORK I'VE SEEN IN A LONG TIME And it's about the great work that Mike Rowe and many others are doing to make blue collar jobs sexy and desirable again.  If you have a kid who is more inclined to work with his or her hands but you have reservations about a blue collar job, you REALLY need to read this


MAYBE IF THIS GUY WATCHED MIKE ROWE HE WOULDN'T BE HUMILIATING HIMSELF LIKE THIS A 30 year old man (that's THIRTY YEAR OLD MAN) found himself in court after refusing to move out of his parents' house.  After watching this video I am more inclined to believe that he is mentally ill and needs help and is parents are at their wits end. Decide for yourself. 

I FEEL THE SAME WAY ABOUT NOT BEING INVITED, LOLA This is so adorable I can't stand it.  Little Lola in Belfast was shocked to find out she wasn't invited to "Megan's wedding".  I can't stand it.  I just want to hug her!

I SAT IN THE LINE AT THE BANK TODAY AND LAUGHED AND LAUGHED 

DAVE KEEPS TRYING TO SCARE ME OFF SUSHI But I keep telling him a tapeworm isn't ALL bad.  It does keep your weight down and unless you're an NHL prospect that might not be a bad thing.  For this guy, it wasn't great


WHERE IS MR. ROGERS WHEN YOU NEED HIM? After yesterday's discussion on school shootings I have to say that Mr. Rogers is seeming like some sort of prescient genius.  Too bad more people didn't listen to him about the impact of television on kids because he was 100% right. 


NO GOOD DEED GOES UNPUNISHED And now the family who took in the Parkland shooter after his mother died is being named in lawsuits.  Even though all they did was extend some kindness to a messed up kid.  This is awful.
