Tonight DaTechGuy on DaRadio goes to two hours for the first time!

Unfortunately our primary guest Lorie Byrd has taken ill and will not be able to appear tonight but Dan Collins of POWIP author of Was it something I said? has graciously agreed to fill in for her and the lovely and talented Roxeanne DeLuca will be joining us as well.

We will also be having our first ever panel at 10 p.m. during our 2nd hour. It will feature, Dan, Roxeanne, Libertarian Leanings and Justin Brooks of the Twin city Tea Party.

We also have a special guest in our 1st hour from the great state of North Carolina.

We will be talking about Reagan’s 100th birthday, the Grass Roots Conference, the situation in Egypt and the abortive attempt to repeal Obamacare

As always you can listen live at the WCRN web site and don’t forget that tonight Tom Wesley’s & John Weston’s show premiere at 6 p.m. followed by conservatively speaking at 7.

Even bigger Starting next Saturday Feb 12th week the show will be at its new morning spot. 10 a.m. EST till noon. For the month of February it will also be replayed at 9 p.m. that evening. I will be the final show in a series of Saturday Morning conservative talk starting at 6 a.m.

So keep it right at WCRN all night and all morning next week for the best locally produced conservative talk out there.

UPDATE: BTW we are live at the Double Tree Hotel in Milford Mass. Feel free to come down and visit.

Libertarian Leanings notes this message from the NYT

…one thing seems clear to Ms. Stolberg. The public is deeply confused and should be ignored as this debate goes forward. Americans hardly ever know what’s good for them, so often voting against their own best interests. Didn’t they just do it again when they put a Republican majority in the House of Representatives last fall? It would hardly do to consider anything so unreliable as American public opinion when government programs may be at stake. If there are any besides Medicare and Social Security.

Yeah who needs the people in a representative republic.

This actually is part of a theme where every liberal outlet is calling for republicans to announce their cuts in Medicare and social security. This has been constant since the election. The line is basically “if they don’t cut social security or medicare then they are not serious”.

This way they can minimize any cuts they have already announced. Of course if any such cuts come then it will be all about the mean republicans hurting seniors. The moment any such cut comes watch the media turn on a dime. For Example:

GOP leaders may talk tough about deficits and federal spending, but their proposed cuts assiduously avoid any mention of Pentagon programs, Medicare, Medicaid or Social Security. Since those programs, along with interest payments, consume most of the federal budget, that means Washington politicians will keep fiddling while Rome burns.

Let’s be clear, entitlement cuts ARE necessary and I have no problem moving the retirement age up two years for anyone born after 1960 (that includes me btw) but expect this to be the MSM meme right up until it happens.

I look at this headline and laugh at the intellectual weakness of it:

Bill Frist: Health Care Is ‘Law Of The Land,’ GOP Should Drop Repeal And Build On It

How weak an argument is that? Think about the variations:

John C. Calhoun: Slavery is the ‘Law of The Land,’ GOP Should Drop Repeal attempt and Build on it

Or how about this?

Herman Eugene Talmadge: Separate but equal is the law of the land (Plessy v Ferguson), the GOP should drop civil rights bills and Build on it

I can do this all day.

Considering how the left/media insists that this is not going to make a difference since the senate won’t repeal it they are fighting awful hard to keep this vote from happening in the house. They fear this vote for a reason.

Oh and the easiest way to be liked by the MSM is to be a republican in opposition to republicans.
