Maybe forever.
Maybe not.
Mulling the future now but the EyeOnMuskegon radio show has seen its last episode.
Most likely, the posted EOM videos will still be worth a visit as little seems to change in our local government.  
Everything old is new again......
And new county commission videos will no longer be posted.
Same old/new thing.
Thanks to Clear Channel Radio, WKBZ, my guests and co-hosts.
And especially the Legendary Oscar Osbo for an absolutely exhilarating run at political talk radio.
See ya.
Or not.

Muskegon county board meetings: April 2013-video links

No more "I can't make the meetings" excuses. 
They're spending us into bankruptcy and you sit at home.
OK.
Now you can sit at home, watch your computer screen and see them at "work".
You silence simply supports their scams.
Do SOMETHING before there is nothing left to do anything about!

MuskegonPundit: These tactics work. Why does the GOP act like there is no internet?

MuskegonPundit: These tactics work. Why does the GOP act like there is no internet?: "I don't get it.
Is the current republican power structure our own version of simpleton "low-information-leaders"?
Do they even know what "social media" is?
Do they even know the basics of who the media is?
This report suggests the "no clue" crowd is in power: http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Journalism/2013/02/19/Debate-Commission-Co-Chair-Yeah-Candy-Crowley-Was-a-Mistake

If we ever hope to sell our message, we must find cyber-leaders to break through the country club walls and realize that Dick Nixon's bad showing in his televised Kennedy debate has relevance still today.
Please guys, open your eyes!"

MuskegonPundit: Muskegon County free food truck sites for February 2013

MuskegonPundit: Muskegon County free food truck sites for February 2013
"Muskegon County free food truck sites for February 2013 | MLive.com
"The local truck program provides people in need with "fresh produce and often dairy products, which are not usually available from a church pantry."
The program is supported by various community groups and companies."

On one hand, ALL political "leaders" are screaming about obesity. 
And the necessity of government intervention to stop the "epidemic".
One the other hand, we're supposed to be comforted that "free" food is now the new normal for the "starving".
Anyone think there's gonna a lot more screaming about hateful republicans/conservatives/etc. when/if the free food stops?

A great show today!
Imagine one person controlling the conversation against Bill Cooper and your lovable host, me!
Stacy Swimp is the future, dudes!
And dudettes!
This guy will be seen and heard from again!

The Democrats' War on Science Aids Our Enemies

Articles: The Democrats' War on Science Aids Our Enemies
The first fairly public effort in this direction is the ridiculous anti-fracking film starring Matt Damon financed in part by OPEC member United Arab Emirates.
Now, following a technological revolution yielding to burst of domestic energy production, wealthy oil producers in the Middle East have become a pro-Democratic constituency.
Who'd have thunk?
The Promised Land, an upcoming film starting Matt Damon and Frances McDormand, is the story of a morally conflicted energy worker who comes to a small American town to extract the local energy supply via hydraulic fracturing ("fracking").
Damon, the protagonist, confronts an ethical conundrum when he is forced to choose between the greedy and villainous energy producers who employ him and a local environmental activist who stole his heart.
Spoiler alert: the environmental activist wins.
According to an investigation by the Heritage Foundation, however, it turns out that a portion of the financing for the film comes from the oil-rich royal family of the United Arab Emirates.
The film was produced in association with Image Media Abu Dhabi, a company owned by the UAE government.
The benefits for oil exporters abroad to increase the politically-imposed restrictions on "fracking" technology are self-evident.
Employing Hollywood to get that message across is, however, a game-changing and previously unavailable strategy for Middle Eastern oil exporters.

Beware the bond bubble in 2013

Plus, the fact that the bond market has become so crowded is a danger in itself, said Ryan Detrick, senior technical analyst at Schaeffer's Investment Research
"Bonds are definitely an area we would lighten up exposure," he said.
"If we've learned anything over the past 100 years of market history, it is that when the crowd thinks one way, you might want to go the other way.
