I’m really not an alarmist or conspiracy theorist. I truly believe we live in a Constitutional Republic and most Americans still believe in limited government and personal responsibility. But good Lord, what is this from Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner: Treasury Secretary Timothy F. Geithner today told Congress the administration will seek unprecedented power to seize […]
Rep. Barney “My Boy Lollipop” Frank is into calling Supreme Court Justices names when he doesn’t get his way, so instead of running the national mortgage industry into the ground while telling everyone what a great investment Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac were, he’s whining about gay marriage and calling Justice Antonin Scalia a “homophobe.” […]

It can be streamed from Radio IQ every Saturday at 2 p.m. and Sunday at 3 p.m. This week, we talk about RPV and Jeff Frederick.
