* the autumn leaves

* the Obamacare roll out and administration knowledge in 2010 about the millions soon to have their health insurance policies taken away as a result

* The impact and implications of Barack Obama’s continued false assurances that Americans could keep their plans

* How your political orientation predicts who you’d like the Minnesota Vikings to start at quarterback

* Loon of the Week (Rep. Frank Pallone on the real villain behind cancelled health insurance policies)

* This Week in Gate Keeping (Set your clocks back, just kidding!)

Special guest was the great John Nolte, editor at John gives us an update on how things are going at Breitbart, reflects on the continuing legacy of founder Andrew Breitbart, and gives us his insights into Obamacare and Hillary Clinton’s already functioning campaign for President in 2016.

    If his name were Muslim Ponder or Hispanic Ponder or Gay Ponder, no one would dare campaign for benching him.

    If I remember correctly, Big Hollywood was originally a place for formerly-closeted Hollywood conservatives to come out and make it not-so-uncool to be a conservative in Hollywood. They had Gary Graham and others (Michael Moriarty?) writing columns. I loved the whole concept but its seems that model didn’t work out. Too bad.

    Who sucked the microphone up his nose half way through this podcast? My money is on Brian.

    I love the leaf updates though…seriously. I spend my entire fall cleaning up after trees. They are incredible machines. Good to know I’m not alone in my wonder of their litter.
