With the end of 2018 in sight, we take a moment to look back on some of the biggest issues of the year. The podcasts and topics that the public found of the most interest, the stories that had the most impact. You may be surprised at the results.
As a surprise for WNBF host Roger Neal, Michael "Vass" Vasquez of NO Soundbites Allowed dropped into the studio to speak about how the end of 2018 will impact the start of 2019. From the stock market, to immigration, to pending gun legislation the end of the year was summed up with an eye to the future.
In a Live conversation with the public via Facebook, we touch on a few of the issues that have molded 2018 - and potentially the politics of 2019. But the lumps of one opinion my be diamonds to another. But what do you think.
With New York State as the example for the nation, a series of gifts from Government to the people will arrive in 2019. We have been promised to expect tax increases, fewer Rights, higher unemployment, worse healthcare, and as a bonus we are expected to pay the politicians making this happen up to 4x the national average. Republicans and Conservatives would call it worse than a lump of coal, and Progressives a rough diamond, but what do you think?
Via a Facebook Live simulcast, we start by saying goodbye to our 41st President George Bush. We then address the attempt to protect the public and how that is done politically. We question the compulsion of thought in denying free speech and artistic expression. We consider the value of endangering the lives of women, just to promote a political agenda. All with the public live.
