When your Favorite Talk Show Host

doesn’t show up for work…

When I first started listening to talk radio, I really didn’t like the “best of” reruns or the last-minute stand-in host. I looked forward to hearing from my favorite talk show personalities every day as I drove to and from work. If they weren’t on, I switched to music.

That was then, this is now, and things have changed. So when there’s a surprise guest host, I always listen. It’s refreshing to get a taste of the unexpected when it comes to political topics. Also, it’s a great way to get insight into what’s being discussed in different areas of the country.

Two new hosts that I otherwise would never hear about were featured last week while Glenn Beck and Joe Pags went on vacation. Justin Barclay in Grand Rapids, MI, substituted for GB and Leland Conway in Denver, CO, filled in for JP.

Justin Barclay’s topic during my morning drive was about doing your part to effect change, whether a little or a lot, it all counts.

As you already know, I’m a bus driver. That’s what I do, and there isn’t much change involved. But I never have to take work home, and when I get some free time, I write. I don’t think many people read what I write, but I don’t let that stop me. It’s me doing my part, and maybe, just maybe, that’s enough.


Later, during the drive home I heard Leland Conway discussing a subject that always puzzled me.  What is the left’s true agenda regarding Green Energy? Why do we pay $5 a gallon for gas when we know it should only cost $1.85? It doesn’t make sense, especially when we were energy independent, and energy dominant less than two years ago. And no, we haven’t run out of fossil fuels, so that isn’t the reason.

His point was that the Green Movement has a sinister agenda to intentionally lower our standard of living. If we pay more for transportation, then we have less disposable income for other things. Plus, everything that we buy comes to us by truck. That means it costs more if and when it finally gets to us. This further reduces our ability to purchase the things we’ve grown accustomed to. It’s all designed to lower our expectations for the future and over time, the established standard of living, and it works. I would add to that the Biden Economic Stagflation strategies, which have to be a big part of the plan. 

As only you can.

But I think there’s more to it. If the American standard of living is lowered far enough and for long enough, we as a people will become acclimated. Those who remember the good ole days will age and die off. Those who are left will only know poverty and despair. When the time is right, Big Government steps in and has a much easier task. It no longer needs to provide abundance for the masses; it merely has to provide subsistence. And in return, it gets complete control.

As a final point, I’d like to return to Justin’s discussion about doing something. We all must do what we can, a little or a lot. If we don’t do our part, we’ll get what we deserve.

Loads and loads of Corn Pop …

Or was that Pop Corn?
