Thanks for this!

Love the fact that Puerto Rico is being discussed! Thanks for keeping us connected.

Communism Is A Failure

The fact that anyone who has never experienced socialism or communism is trying to sell it to people is a joke! If this was a balanced podcast they would have guests on that actually lived the nightmare! You won’t, because you want to sell your garbage to stoners that believe even the Wizard Of OZ is real and can’t draw distinctions between reality and fantasy!

RV2PR ,

A breath of fresh air!

How refreshing to hear such a warm and intelligent voice discussing the important issues facing our community and the nation as a whole. Looking forward to what you cover next!
