Good evening! Tonight we began discussing the Rasmussen Poll, 57% Would Like to Replace Entire Congress. You can find that article here - http://www.rasmussenreports.com/public_content/politics/general_politics/august_2009/57_would_like_to_replace_entire_congress
According to the poll, if they could vote to keep or replace the entire Congress, just 25% of voters nationwide would keep the current batch of legislators. 57% would vote to replace the entire Congress and start all over again. Eighteen percent (18%) are not sure how they would vote.
It goes on to state that overall, these numbers are little changed since last October. With Democrats controlling both chambers of Congress, it's not surprising to find that the number of Democrats who would vote to keep the entire Congress has grown from 25% last fall to 43% today. In fact, a modest plurality of Democrats would now vote to keep the legislators. Last fall, a plurality of Democrats were ready to throw them all out.
There is a ton more data in the article, be sure to check it out.
We then move on to comment on an opinion piece on Campaign For Liberty's website titled The Liberal Fear of Guns by Jacob Hornberger.
We then move onto an article from Gun Owners of America titled 'He Had A Gun and Nothing Happened'. This is in response to the several townhall meetings across the country where firearms were present.
According to the article, The Second Amendment was added to our Constitution to ensure that the individual right to keep and bear arms not be infringed. Infringement would impair the proper functioning of the militia which had been America’s homeland security system all through colonial times and well into our republican era.
The armed attendees made it clear that they were exercising their right to keep and bear arms. Zero tolerance of firearms has become so extreme that even a picture of a gun can get a student kicked out of school. The presence of armed citizens helps correct the notion that guns are inherently dangerous.
There are those who don’t like Americans owning guns at all, let alone carrying them openly. They can be counted on to run around squawking like Chicken Little that the sky is falling -- a calamity brought about by the presence of an armed citizen in public. We are warned that: “Somebody might grab the gun and do something bad! The armed citizen will intimidate others! Tempers will flare and blood will run in the streets!”

We then talked about an uncoming event this week in Austin, Polygraph Radio Truth Tour featuring Jack Blood and the Austin, TX Revolutionary Allstars plus many others Thursday, Sept 3rd @ Headhunters. There are also many other show dates lined up across the country, check it out here - http://polygraphradio.net/musicsite/?page_id=23
We then discuss an article out of The Canadian Press by James Keller called 'New browser red-flags disputed facts on the web'.
According to the article, the current version of the software relies entirely on users to identify disputed claims, provide evidence and point the software to other instances of that claim on the web, so right now there's still not much content being highlighted.
