Dear Robert,

That’s very nice of you to say.

For folks who don’t listen to the show, on Thursdays we play clips of politicians saying things, like when Elbert Guillory changed parties, or when Obama’s press Jester Jay Carney said that Benghazi was a long time ago, and I judge them either “powerful” or “pitiful.”

You might guess where I came done on those two examples. 

Robert, you know, on the website I get immediate feedback but radio, which I’m kind of new at, I’m never really sure 100 percent. But I figure that hard work counts for something.

We’ve done pretty well though. We started with ten stations and we now have about 30 stations. And we’re selling lots of advertising. Hopefully we’ll expand to a second hour shortly.

In the meantime here’s where we post the show every day: Ransom Notes Radio

You’ll find on the front page under “columnists” or emailed to you daily if you simply subscribe to the daily email.

Dear Comrade J,

I don’t hate poor people.

I employ them cutting my grass, clipping my hedges, taking out my garbage, cooking and cleaning up for me, just like all Republicans do.

We have a secret website that matches up greedy Republican bankers with desperate people who needs jobs doing stuff that none of us have never had to do to feed our family by the sweat of our own face.

That’s because no Republicans are ever poor.

Dwight D. Eisenhower was born to a rich Prussian family that owned huge tracts of land; Nixon’s dad was a Baron who hailed from a Canadian province that his family almost wholly owned.

And don’t get me started on Ronald Reagan: we all know his family had the banana concession in Central America ever since the Pope granted it to the family 1574.

Who said I couldn’t be an Obama speechwriter?

Arthur Brooks from the American Enterprise Institute was a guest on Ransom Notes Radio Friday and he spoke about a recent editorial he published in the Wall Street Journal last week:
