I don't have to respect your opinion; I'm only obligated to acknowledge it. I'm a mouth with a mic, and this show is my final retort to the year in the stupid. I had plenty of source material. We're all to blame to here. We could not want it, but we watch cable news and that drives commercial rates up. We could turn it off. We could not give credence to these bloviating demagogues, but we want it. We want to be outraged and we want to fight. We could stop this pain-go-round anytime we want by simply not paying for it. 
                                                                         - Jason Thompson
