A few months ago driving with a friend, while adjusting the radio, he asked what kind of music I listened to during the day. That surprised me because I only listen to news, morning, noon and night. I love radio. It's more informative than TV and I don't have to witness all the annoying personal drama, Plexiglas set-ups, and constantly moving background of all news TV.

It starts with superb conservative commentators like Dennis Prager and Rush Limbaugh, continuing with Michael Medved, Mark Levin, Larry Elder, and Hugh Hewitt. There are others depending on the time. They are all brilliant in their individual ways. Usually hearing Dennis Prager first, I have to confess his comments and analysis sometimes keep me sitting in my car outside the office until a break releases me.

Then there's FOX news, on all day. Radio again driving home, often Mark Levin or Hugh Hewitt. Their often gloomy assessments of world affairs or Democrat party witlessness closely correspond to my own. Each of these commentators speaks from intelligence, education, and logic - not from indelible ideology as most liberal Leftist mouthpieces. Their conclusions make use of common sense all in the pursuit of truth.

Maybe I consume too much news because I find it generally depressing. Depressing because, as someone who has lived through what I consider America's finest hours, I am now forced to witness America's moral, financial, military, and legal degeneration. Barack Obama and the Democrat Party have accellerated the demise which has been coming for 50 years. Republicans share almost equally in the blame.

Let's take a peek at our eviscerated military. With funding cut nearly in half, working with pre-WWII level strength, we face the greatest danger from foreign and domestic attack at any time in our history. Here's what Army Chief of Staff Gen. Ray Odierno has to say recently on Iraq:

"I go back to the work we did in 2007, 2008, 2009, and 2010 and we got it to a place that was really good,” Odierno noted. “Violence was low, the economy was growing, politics looked like it was heading in the right direction.” “It would have been good for us to stay” after the end of 2011”. ”Though Odierno had recommended in 2009 that the United States keep 30,000-35,000 troops in Iraq beyond 2011, his recommendation was rejected. Odierno also expressed concern about the cuts the U.S. military has endured since 2010, particularly those that will reduce the number of troops by 40,000 over the next two years.”

[Odierno] said that the 14 percent reduction in U.S. troops — which shrank the number of soldiers from 570,000 to 490,000 — that the Army has seen since 2010 renders the United States unable to “deter conflict and prevent wars.”


Then there is the incredible, destabilizing flood of illegal immigrants, failure to recognize and confront ISIS (“We don’t have a strategy yet” to challenge the Islamic State) and finally, the greatest strategic "mistake" in American military history, this catastrophically foolish "deal" concerning Iran's nuclear arms development.

I need the opinions I listen to on radio to assure myself that I am not alone in concluding that Barack Obama is deliberately destroying America.
