678: What the Flynn Guilty Plea REALLY Means

December 1st, 2017|

I'm so sick the media not doing its job. First, they spend most of their time covering news that doesn't matter like the mountain of sex scandals that make headlines every day. I'm not saying you shouldn't cover that stuff; it's news for crying out loud. But we don't need wall to wall coverage and discussion of it. Then when an important story like the Flynn Guilty Plea is announced the media chooses to sensationalize or outright distort the truth. The facts don't matter, [...]

677: Matt Lauer, Brexit and Cryptocurrencies

November 30th, 2017|

Kind of an odd mix today but I wanted to discuss the recent wave of sexual harassment claims being made by women across the nation. I have to say it makes me proud to see so many women stepping out under great risk to their reputations and calling their harassers to account. Matt Lauer is the latest big shot to fall and the claims being leveled against him are hard to read. I can't imagine being a woman and having to put up with [...]

676: Yellen Says She Doesn’t “want to cause a boom-bust condition in the economy”

November 29th, 2017|

Well, now that's rich given the feds track record. I want to spend some time today talking through the many boom-bust conditions created by the fed over the last few decades including the one they're creating now. To suggest the fed cares at all about creating conditions that foster a healthy economy is hilarious. The fed cares about making sure the economy stays afloat. Even if that means addicting it to cheap money and fake prices. *** Also on today's show, a new report [...]

674: Employment in America – How to Position Yourself to Get Hired, Stay Hired and Move Up

November 21st, 2017|

I've decided to do a short show today since, well, the news sucks. Frankly, I'm sick of hearing about the latest sexual misconduct accusations that are now being levied against everyone you can think of. Even Charlie Rose is being accused of some ridiculous and outrageous behavior. But there is a decent article about the number of older millennials who are still living at home or with relatives. Most commentators would use the story to complain about the younger generation, their lack of ambition, [...]

673: The AMA’s, Taxes and Bitcoin

November 20th, 2017|

So I'm in California working on a deal that will allow the JSP to expand to the next level and become the kind of show we all want it to be and while visiting with my ad partners at Westwood One, I as offered a ticket to the American Music Awards. Now, pop culture is not something I follow closely and pop music, not at all, but I thought, "How many times do you get the chance to attend a big event like the [...]

672: The Al Franken Story Pisses Me Off

November 17th, 2017|

Yesterday I went on a tirade over the wall to wall coverage of the various sex scandals hitting the news. It's all partisan, and none of it matters. Last night while I was trolling the interwebs looking for good stories I ran across the infamous picture of Al Franken "groping." a young actress and model back in 2006. Up until then, I'd only heard the conservative commentary about the incident on the radio. To listen to them tell it, Franken fondled some poor woman [...]

671: China is About to Implode. Here’s Why that Matters to You

November 16th, 2017|

You've got to go way back into the archives to find the last time we talked about the Australian economy but thanks to an incredible article by a guy named Matt Barrie we're going to talk about it today. I highly suggest you read the entire article. It can be found at: https://medium.com/@matt_11659/matt-barrie-australias-economy-is-a-house-of-cards-6877adb3fb2f I'm only going to cover the first 8-10 pages on the show today, but it's well worth reading the entire thing. We are on the verge of the most significant economic [...]

670: Frankin Calls for Social Media Censorship

November 15th, 2017|

It should come as no surprise that comedian turned political hack Al Frankin is now advocating for government censorship of social media. Apparently, he believes social media has gotten too big to be managed by the companies that run the platforms. His solution? The government should decide what gets posted and what doesn't. Anyone else find it humorous that Frankin thinks government would do a better job of managing social media than the media companies themselves? *** We're also going to talk Venezuela. They [...]
