More satire in this one and more full-length music so good for those who like to slice and dice. Sprinkled liberally with various tasteful profanities. With a nod to Marten at kapputradio for the inspiration to lighten up and have some fun!

Advisory: mucho tasty profanity

Begins with a short piece by FDR that still seems true today then we move on to a number of pieces relating to our MSM and also our corporate controlled political situation. Oh and we are reminded of the importance of the pledge of allegiance too. After a quick commercial for WikiLeaks we try on some differing views about god and religion with a piece on skepticism thrown in, followed by some historical pieces. Near closing a musical piece on illusions then Dale and Roy end the program.
