Today’s show features on of the most fearless bloggers in blogging today Pam Geller of Atlas Shrugs who will likely have a few things to say about Jihad. We will also feature Bob Belvedere of Camp of the Saints LIVE in the studio. We will once again be at 5 p.m. due to UMASS Basketball which will directly follow our show.

If you are somehow outside of the range of our 50,000 WATT signal at WCRN you can listen on our live stream from the web site. Feel free to call in at 508-438-0965 or e-mail us at datechguyondaradio@gmail.com

We will be giving away another copy of the Rosemary Reynolds Christmas CD this week and another family game from LAN games in Leominster as well…if you can answer the blog and news trivia question that is.

Oh and two FYI’s

This will incidentally be the last week at 5 p.m. Starting next week we will return to our normal 9-10 time slot but of course you should be streaming all night at WCRN starting with the RAVE 4-6 with Gary Rosen and Gary Vecchio, Konnie Lukas at 6 p.m. Conservatively Speaking with Mike Wade, John Weston (and yours truly as 4th banana) 7-9 and of course the fun and always wild Sam Rosiario directly after me taking you to midnight. A full evening of live talk!

This week the RAVE runs 4-5 (also due to Basketball) and will feature live in the studio Greg Fettig president of the Hoosier Patriots so tea party fans nationwide, make sure you start streaming at 4 p.m. at WCRN!

After all the stories about trouble at TSA checkpoints what’s the one thing that the Obama Administration could do to annoy people more? Barbara Espinosa has the answer:

As violent drug cartels take over Mexico and expand their criminal enterprises north, the United States has signed a “trusted traveler” agreement that allows pre-screened Mexican airline passengers to bypass lengthy airport security checkpoints.

The foreigners will get “trusted traveler cards” with fingerprints and other biometric data and they must answer customs declarations questions on touch-screen kiosks before leaving airport inspection areas. Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano claims it’s a way to enhance information sharing and mutual security in the face of “ever-evolving, multinational threats.”
About 84 million Mexicans are expected to qualify for the trusted traveler program, according to Mexico’s Interior Ministry Secretary, who signed the agreement on behalf of his country this week.

I’m sure that this is going to go over really well with the traveling public. In terms of PR the only thing more foolish the administration could do is to assign police to escort people crossing the border illegally…oh wait:

While Napolitano was in Mexico finalizing the trusted traveler agreement this week, she also took the opportunity to sign a “letter of intent” to develop a plan for protecting immigrants from criminal attacks as they cross the border—illegally—into the U.S.

Yes you read that right.

Now common decency says you don’t stand by while people are attacked or robbed but common sense also says that once you save people from attack, if they were in the process of committing a federal offense you arrest them!.

Our grandparents of the greatest generation and before would be looking at us and shaking their heads.

BTW don’t miss Barbara on KFNX 1100 Mondays 8-9 PM Arizona time.

The 6th of our Advertisers of Christmas series.

Putnam Street lanes is on Putnam street Fitchburg and has been there for 120 years. For those of you who don’t know how Candle Pin bowling works here is a quick peek:

Then again sometimes the wood gives it back:

That doesn’t happen to me too often but it’s stuff like this that makes candlepin bowling such a challenge and why there has never been a perfect game in candlepin and the smaller balls are easier for kids and the elderly to keep rolling.

Ok I’m the Justice Department, am I concerned about the latest terror plot foiled? Am I concentrating on Wikileaks and keeping secrets safe? Apparently If I’m Eric Holder I have other priories:

HEADLINE: Holder reassures Muslims of DOJ’s anti-bias focus

Attorney General Eric Holder reiterated his resolve to prosecute hate crimes while standing behind the methods used in anti-terrorism cases during a speech Friday night before a Muslim advocacy group near San Francisco.

You know I really need to send the MSM a thank you card. It’s almost as if they knew Pam Geller was going to be my guest today on the radio and they wanted to make sure I had a fresh story to tell.
