February 7th, 2012  We premiere on 1400 AM KKZZ!  

Today live with Martha Montelongo, along with Ben Boychuk of CA City Journal and John Seiler of, we welcome two special guests:   

Judge Jim Gray, who currently presides over the civil trial calendar for the Superior Court of Orange County, will speak with us about current policy, costs, benefits, ethics and possibilities. Do our drug laws make us safe, safer or are they harmful? What about marijuana and the law? 

Larry Sand of California Teacher’s Empowerment Network writes about public education. While the horrific story of Miramonte Elementary unfolds, the CA Teacher’s Union and the lawmakers who fear their wrath, and who make tragedies like Miramonte possible systemically, moves to further restrict the already scarce alternatives available to families like the families who are living a nightmare at Miramonte Elementary.  We’ll talk with Larry about his new piece published today at Union Watch–CTA Sponsored Legislation Could Cripple Charter School Growth.

We’ll take your calls, questions and comments on the air at 1-805 639 0008, on FB instant chat or Twitter. 

I am a stand for liberty, integrity, empowerment, and prosperity for all people; a stand for vibrant and innovative small businesses that create jobs, that in the process of prospering, nurture and support creative and dynamic culture, in the work place, and in our personal lives.

    Is there an archive/pod cast?

  2. The content was excellent.. but the quality of our production was very poor. I have to edit out some of the places where it’s just noise. What will remain is audible but not the clear fidelity I would like to provide to our devoted listeners.
